Deanna and her family sit in a darkened room mourning Aidan’s loss. She puts on one of his mixed cds and Nine Inch Nails’ “Somewhat Damaged” beings to play.

The opening is intercut with shots of Carol making a tuna casserole for the grieving family. In one of these shots, we see that Sam has come to visit her again. We also see Sasha in the lookout tower. Carol leaves the casserole on Deanna’s front porch.  Deanna finds it, reads the note and goes inside without the dish. She burns the note.  (more…)

‘X-Files’ Now Very Close to a Two-Season Comeback Order

The X Files 2

Earlier this year, Fox executives told critics and TV writers that it was their intention to bring The X-Files back to their airwaves in some capacity. Although the show ended 13 years ago with only one poorly received movie to prop up interest in between, it seemed that seeing an X-Files revival was peaking after the simple announcement that this was something the business guys were looking at. But creator Chris Carter has shown interest, stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have come out in favor, so all that’s left it for everyone to sign their deals, and according to sources, that signing is said to becoming very soon for a two season commitment.

AMC’s ‘Preacher’ Pilot Casts Arseface

In the 15 years since Preacher ended its vaunted run in Vertigo, there have been numerous (Numerous!) attempts to turn it into a viable movie project. After fits and starts, someone finally had the bright idea to make Preacher for a format that was more likely to appreciate its rich, complex and challenging storytelling, and that’s television. Now being developed for AMC, which has had some success making series based on comic books, Preacher has moved from the theoretical to an actual project that is now casting. Hooray! And just as you thought this day was never going to come, another confounding event has occurred, Preacher has cast Arseface. (more…)

It’s not every day that you see a big star with real draw power getting involved in a reboot of an old children’s show. Okay, so there was that Garfield thing with Bill Murray, but we try to forget that one. But the year of 2015 brings us some rather interesting news. It appears as if Joseph Gordon-Levitt is ready to put his name on the Fraggle Rock franchise in more ways that one. Not only will he produce a movie adaptation, but he’ll also be starring in it.

Marvel’s Daredevil series hits Netflix on April 10th. Leading up to shows releases comes another sweet motion poster promoting everyone’s favorite red suited vigilante who dishes out his own version of blind justice.

The latest Daredevil motion poster is more revealing than you think. It shows all the major characters and there are quite a few background details to inspect. Little big things like Avengers Tower, and a reflection that reveals Daredevil’s red suit, or at least a different suit than the black ninja-esque one we’ve seen. Check out the motion poster below and see if you can spot all the small details. (more…)

TV RECAP: ‘Arrow’ – S3E16 – “The Offer”

Screen Shot 2015-03-19 at 9.44.17 AM

Arrow‘s nonsensical, “What the hell’s going on?” season continues, picking up where we left off about a month ago with an offer, or make that “The Offer,” of Ra’s al Ghul to Oliver Queen to lead the League of Assassins. By the end of the hour it becomes very clear that this is an offer that Oliver can’t refuse, or rather he’s being manipulated into a position where he can’t refuse it. “The Offer” itself was an interesting hour, dramatically compelling with top-notch action, but the episode, like much of the overarching plotting this season feels both rushed and sudden, as if character is serving plot and not vice versa.

Cotumes are a sensitive topic when it comes to superhero properties; get it right and you’ve got it made in the shade, but get it wrong, like in the case of David E. Kelly’s Wonder Woman pilot for example, and you’re sunk before you even get a chance to float. Two upcoming superhero projects are at the forefront of the costume question, as both having seemingly embraced some unconventional duds for their main characters. The trailer for the Fantastic Four movie shows the titular quartet looking positively “Derelique,” while the Man Without Fear in Daredevil looks like the man without imagination dressed in basic black. But are these heroes due for a costume change mid-story? Cast and crew say, “Yes.” (more…)

FlashFeature1

When we last saw Barry and Co., there was plenty left up in the air for audiences to muse over during The Flash’s short hiatus.  Firestorm had learned to live with both halves of the whole and headed out of town to learn how to either control or eradicate his (their) new abilities; not only has Barry decided that he will change the future so that he can change his past (pretty sure Doctor Emmitt Brown would be COMPLETELY against this) but it was finally confirmed that Dr. Wells is indeed the man in the yellow suit, though, this did not necessarily mean that he is a bad guy; and in one of the coolest scenes of the season, Gorilla Grodd finally made his small screen debut in all his glory.  This week’s episode, Out of Time, managed to avoid deflating in the shadow of the previous episode and, instead, grew into The Flash’s strongest episode to date. Major spoilers ahead.  Seriously, if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, you owe it to yourself to walk away now. You have been warned. (more…)
