It seems to be universal opinion at this point that Jessica Jones is another impressive and enjoyable entry into the Marvel Studios canon. From the hard-boiled noir storyline to the tremendous cast including Krysten Ritter as the title character and David Tennant as maybe the scariest Marvel villain yet, Jessica Jones has been a hit with fans, critics and the general audience. And now, it’s time for that inevitable moment where we start dissecting the series for all the various references, asides and Easter eggs that it has to offer. Obsessively mining all 13-epsiodes for clues? Why not watch the following video instead? (more…)
The second DC Comics spin-offs from the CW‘s successful Arrow is coming to television and we’ve got a new trailer to prove it. Producer Greg Berlanti is once again expanding the CW’s superhero lineup with Legends of Tomorrow, the first of the CW’s lineup to feature a superhero team that includes Victor Garber and Franz Drameh as Firestorm, Caity Lotz as White Canary, Brandon Routh as the Atom, Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Heatwave, Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl, Falk Hentschel as Hawkman, and Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter. Check it out after the jump. (more…)
If this week’s Supergirl episode, “How Does She Do It?,” seemed off, it was for good reason: In response to the Paris attacks, CBS wisely decided to swap out episodes 4 and 5 due to episode 4’s focus on a mad (more like slightly perturbed) bomber planting and/or detonating bombs around National City. On a series that’s built around some measure of continuity, especially where the central relationships are concerned, the jump forward – followed by a jump back – threw the delicate, season-long, relationship- and arc-building into minor disarray. At least now, though, viewers know what some of the seemingly cryptic comments in episode 5 meant (e.g., references to bombings, babysitting, and a renewed romantic relationship) now that episode 4 has seen the light of day (or rather night).

Last week was a rather mediocre episode of Gotham, mainly focusing on character development and doing it in a mostly unexciting way. We saw The Penguin and Nygma making friends and having revelations. We saw Jim Gordon struggling with his dark side and winning…er, losing… or perhaps just coming to no set resolution. We also saw Selina trying to save Bruce from the mechanizations of Galavan’s nasty little niece, Silver St. Cloud. And, of course, Galavan’s monks showed up in town, ready to start causing havoc and murdering boy billionaires. This week steers the story toward Bruce even as Gordon and Galavan face off in the prelude to the ultimate showdown. Scroll on for a recap of ‘The Son of Gotham’. (more…)
Ever since original Mystery Science Theater 3000 co-creator Joel Hodgson announced his Kickstarter campaign to create new episodes of the seminal geeky-late-night, movie-riffing television series, fans everywhere have been giddy with excitement. The Kickstarter has already made enough to do a few episodes, with hopefully more to be unlocked as the campaign’s monetary total grows. In a recent update, Hodgson announced that Felicia Day has been hand-picked to play the new Mad Scientist “token bad guy” in the MST3K reboot.
The folks over at HBO sure do know how to toy with our emotions. Game of Thrones fans were in a state of a frenzied mixture of disbelief and denial following *REDACTED* “death” in the Season 5 finale, despite the actor himself stating afterwards that, as far as he knew, the character was really and truly dead. Director David Nutter even confirmed they had killed our Dear *REDACTED*; even at the risk of breaking President Obama’s heart. And yet now, they’ve released a new teaser poster for Season 6 that has us all going back to the drawing board with our HE LIVES theories. (more…)
This Vin Diesel guy must be contracting out his sleep because I don’t know how else he has the time to do everything he’s got going on lately. Diesel is taking another run at a Triple X movie in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage , there’s the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, the Fast & Furious sequel, and on top of that, he’s helping to launch a new television division for One Race Films‘ production company called MERC CITY which will look into the lives of the Mercenaries in the Riddick Universe. The man is flat-out busy. (more…)
After the end of last week’s episode, we were all left with one question: Who said “help?” Was it Glenn? Was it Rick? Was it someone we don’t know?
This episode starts off by answering a bigger question: Did Glenn survive the zombie horde?
Do not continue reading if you do not want to know Glenn’s fate. (more…)
The writing was absolutely on the wall from the get-go. Last week’s “Next Time…” was intentionally vague – and if you were listening, you could hear exactly which actress was doing the voiceover talk about “the Raven.” Throughout this episode, the trail of breadcrumbs leading up to the final scene was so plain that each breadcrumb was as big as an entire loaf. Season finales be damned – sometimes you just throw down when you want to throw down.
