To quote the Book of Pythia, “All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.”
In a world where films have endured countless remakes and reboots, so much television. This television season year we are already getting Lethal Weapon, MacGyver, Training Day, and The Exorcist reboots. And we still have reboots coming for The Lost Boys, Varsity Blues, The Departed, and Let The Right One In planned on coming to TV soon enough. With everyone’s nostalgia trapped in the past, it only a matter of time before all the greats get a polished update.
On the surface, Star Trek and The Walking Dead don’t have a lot in common. One is a hopeful, inspirational tale of exploration and diplomacy in deep space in the 23rd century, and the other is an almost nihilistic story about survivors of a zombie plague who constantly have to be as concerned about the living as they are about the dead. Still, someone is making the comparison, but it’s not based on any narrative similarities, but rather the series’ longevity. As Star Trek marks 50 years this year, the AMC bosses of The Walking Dead see just an equally as grand an opportunity ahead for Dead. (more…)
The Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4 premiere titled “The Ghost”, found the team split up and in unfamiliar roles.

That’s right, good ol’ Ghost Rider has blazed a trail to the small screen. However, this version of Ghost Rider may not exactly be one that casual fans are familiar with. The episode raised some interesting questions about the team that we’ve all come to know and love over the past 3 years. (more…)

Star Wars Rebels returns with its third season this weekend on Disney XD, which may present you with a dilemma.

One of the more memorable villains of Gotham was Jerome. He captured many of The Joker’s mannerisms and displayed psychosis very well on the show. The producers threw us a major curveball when they actually killed the character as he was made a sacrificial lamb for Theo Galavan’s rise to power.

However, with the release of the inmates from Indian Hill, we heard Jerome’s infectious laugh signifying that he is one of those who escaped and now at large.

As you’re undoubtedly already aware, there are only 13 hours of Game of Thrones left, and they will be spread out over two seasons to prolong the agony of fans. With an endgame in mind for the series, it should come as no surprise that HBO would be looking for a way to keep this lucrative franchise going in some way after the series finale, and one of the ways to do that would be with some kind of prequel series. The show, and the books it’s based, refer back to a rich history in the imaginary land of Westeros, just don’t expect the guys behind the current show to want to come back and explore it further.
