It looks like the vampire apocalypse is soon to be resolved. You’ve probably been enjoying season three of The Strain, the FX drama about a group of humans trying to stop the spread of a virus that transforms people into blood-sucking fiends starring Corey Stoll and David Bradley. The show’s been getting positive notices in its third season, but the episode order was cut from its usual 13 to 10, and if that made you wonder how much longer The Strain might be around, you’re right to think that this shorter season portended doom. FX and The Strain producers have now confirmed that the fourth season will be the last. (more…)
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD continued it’s fourth season with the second episode called “Meet the New Boss”. The episode had a lot going on, yet everything was still somehow packed into an hour of television. Gabriel Luna continues to do an excellent job as Ghost Rider, who is the main sell for this season. The rest of the team kept digging into the mysteries of the ghost box and the audience was introduced to the new Director of SHIELD. Also, we were given some more information about that weird ghost woman. She now has a whole ghost squad. (more…)
As one of the shows that is really putting Netflix on the map in terms of being a creator of amazing original content, Daredevil has treated the world to a stellar two seasons so far. The first season was a true masterpiece of television, with every tiny detail carefully considered to the extent that there was hardly a fault to be found in the casting, the dialogue, the soundtrack… well, all of it. The second season proved a worthy follow up, with so many pieces falling perfectly into place. It opened the door for other darker Marvel shows, like Jessica Jones, to get screen time and even has a spin-off on the way in the form of Punisher. (more…)
For 30 years now, The Tick has existed on the periphery of comic book culture in the realm of cult appreciation, but near mainstream obscurity. Sure, there have been attempts to create a successful transition to other media, but The Tick’s cult status has been one that’s difficult to shake, especially for ratings hungry TV networks. But in the era of Peak TV, you don’t need millions of viewers to be a successful series, and in the same way that streaming video sites have saved numerous cult-favourite IPs, The Tick was chosen for resurrection by Amazon, and now, you’re guaranteed to get at least one full season of the new Tick.

Netflix and Marvel‘s Luke Cage is almost here, by the end of the week we’ll all be binge watching the latest in a string (Daredevil, Jessica Jones) of highly entertaining and critically acclaimed Marvel television series. If only ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could get on the band wagon. Mike Colter‘s Luke Cage first appeared in Jessica Jones and now he’s got his own problems to sort out. Will there be some hints or even a cameo of the upcoming Iron Fist? Maybe, but even if there isn’t Marvel has set a high bar and it will be interesting to see if Luke Cage can maintain that high standard. (more…)
It was sad news for Trekkies last week as is was announced that Star Trek: Discovery, the new series from Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller and Star Trek 2009 co-writer Alex Kurtzman, would be delayed five months. January was looking a little soon for a series that hasn’t even announced a cast yet. In fact, all we know about Discovery so far is that it features a female lead who isn’t the captain, and that it takes place a decade before the voyages of the original starship Enterprise. If setting a new series in the Kirk era seems bold, it’s actually not. As Trek’s waited quietly in hyper-sleep for its TV return, two of the biggest ideas offered has involved a Kirk some capacity.

When season two of The Flash ended, Barry did the unthinkable and reset time. By preventing the killing of his mother by the Reverse Flash, he knew he would be changing fate. No longer will his father be accused of her murder and he will no longer be raised by Joe West. Everything is about to change. It’s already been confirmed that the third season of the show will be loosely adapting the “Flashpoint Paradox” storyline from the comic book. In the comic book, Barry resets time only to discover that he’s in an alternate timeline where he had no powers, there was no Justice League, and Bruce Wayne was killed as a child and Batman ended up as his father. If the show follows the comic book, everything’s going to change.
There are certain things that come with being British like an accent, allegiance to the Queen, and a fondness for bizarre sounding foods like “blood pudding” being examples. If you’re a British actor though, the entitlement extends to an appearance in the franchise of your choice whether it’s Harry Potter, Downton Abbey or Game of Thrones. Of course, sometimes those actors can appear in any combination of the three, and indeed there’s been a lot of crossover between them already. But how about this: What if Harry Potter himself were to appear on Game of Thrones? Well Daniel Radcliffe is game if the right opportunity came up. (more…)
