Did You Ever Notice ‘The Walking Dead’s’ Easter Eggs Involving Clocks?

I’m terrible with easter eggs unless they’re right smack dab in my face. And also have to do with comic book characters. While I’m talking about comic book characters, thanks to Robert Kirkmann’s winning series, ‘The Walking Dead,’ let’s center on the television show. Yeah, we hunt eggs on this site from time to time. We found a bunch of stuff from ‘The Flash.’ Then there was ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ buzz, because that movie could do no wrong around here. Once, there were physical ‘Walking Dead’ easter eggs to talk about in a post. But unlike that time when we found The Governor’s patio umbrella in Terminus, the eggs I’m talking about have been going on since the beginning of Season One. (more…)

There’s still six long months to wait until Netflix premieres the entire first season of Daredevil to their streaming service in May 2015. That will be one long weekend of Mountain Dew, Funyuns, and Daredevil binge watching for a lot of Marvel fans. The whole thing is being shot as one big movie and it will be interesting to see how it works out. The series lead Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), while doing red carpet press for the Theory of Everything premiere last night in New York talked about the daredevil series. (more…)

“I’m Brick, Bitch!” ‘Arrow’ Series Casts Expected Villain!

Now, this is what it looks like to have some concrete casting information. Oliver Queen will once again be dealing with a rogue’s gallery regular, as longtime adversary Brick gets introduced to live action villainy. For those of us who have no idea who this guy is, Danny Brickwell was a gangster who saw prime opportunity in Star City’s temporary void of underworld bosses. While most of the shady characters around town saw chaos, Danny jumped at the chance to showcase his own brand of order, mostly through drug sale. This storyline took shape after the comic storyline ‘Green Arrow: City Walls’ and established Brick as a real problem for Arrow’s ample quiver of solutions. And bringing him to the small screen is an actor who is used to playing hard-to-kill characters. (more…)

TV REVIEWS: ‘Doctor Who’ – S08E08/09 – “Mummy on the Orient Express”/”Flatline”

doctor who mummy on the orient express review

It’s a bit of a cheat, I’ll admit, combining these two episodes into one review. But beyond simply making up for lost time, both episodes come from new-to-Who writer, Jamie Mathieson and center on the constantly evolving relationship between The Doctor and Clara. And while the basic premises of these two episodes don’t necessarily form a link between them, how The Doctor and Clara interact definitely does. (more…)

Last week, our survivors faced the most frightening human foes to date and Eugene finally revealed his knowledge of a potential, viable cure. “Strangers” picks up where the premiere left off, with the group desperate to leave the gruesome events of “No Sanctuary” far behind them, but some horrors you simply cannot outrun.  (more…)

NBC Takes a Second Shot at Remaking ‘The IT Crowd’

- 10-17-14TV Posted by Jason McAnelly

it crowd

Fans of The IT Crowd are somewhat religious in their obsession with the show. It was a wonderful bit of British comedy that spanned just 25 episodes (that’s 4 seasons in Britlandia) and one special. Before it even went off the air, the powers-that-be decided that they wanted to cash in on the show’s popularity, so they tried an American remake. And despite bringing one of the main characters along for the ride, it did not make the grade and was scrapped. Now, NBC is at it again. In typical “we want more money!” fashion, they’ve decided to take another crack at bringing The It Crowd Mark II to the small screen. (more…)

Flashback Alert! ‘Game of Thrones’ Goes There in Season 5

The flashback is a well-worn device in modern TV storytelling. Some series do it well, like most of the first season of Lost, and some series do it poorly, like practically every flashback on Arrow. That may be my opinion, but I think a lot of the appeal of Game of Thrones is that it keeps the storytelling in the here and now. (Of course, here and now is relative when it comes to the fictional world of Westeros.) But according to the two guys that guide the show, that’s all about to change in the next season of the show. Put on your tie-dye and sweatbands because we’re about to go back in time. Although that’s probably not the dress code of the Westeros of the past. (more…)

WSC-ATL-2

How quickly the year goes by. October is back and so is Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta Ga, this weekend, the 17th through the 19th. This marks the second year for Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta and it looks to be a big one. Walker Stalker has expanded since then with conventions in Boston, New York, San Fransisco, Dallas, Orlando, Chicago, and of course, Atlanta. There’s an incredible list of guests this year that includes just about every major Walking Dead character with only a few exceptions that had to cancel due to scheduling conflicts. We’ll be covering the convention the entire weekend and bringing it to you here. (more…)

‘Constantine’ EP Says More DC Comics Characters Could Appear

Constantine-Swamp-Thing

The pilot episode of Constantine has aired in a few places, and it’s been making the rounds on torrent sites for a couple of months now. You may even have seen it yourself. Even if you haven’t, you may be aware that the Doctor Fate helmet is fairly prominent Easter Egg in it, thus implying that more than just John Constantine and his cohorts might be appearing on small screens everywhere, a situation akin to how Arrow and The Flash are filled with references to other comics and characters. So is it possible that other occult characters from the DC Comics Universe like Swamp Thing, Zatanna or Deadman might encounter Matt Ryan‘s exorcist/con man? One of the executive producers says the answer is “yes.” (more…)

‘Game Of Thrones’ Star(k) Maisie Williams Said She Might Be In A Superhero Series

Spiderman fanatic Maisie Williams hasn’t been around the site much. Last time we talked about her, she was dissing the hell out of ‘Game Of Thrones’ book readers for being douchebags. It was one of my favorite stories, authored by a fantastic writer. It’s nice to see her return to these pages, even if it’s not GOT-oriented. Yes, it just so happens that the young actress has aspirations to do other things outside of medieval fantasy. For instance, how about a superhero television series? When being interviewed about her upcoming projects, including the gaming world’s ‘The Last Of Us,’ little Arya Stark mentioned being in talks for something more Hit-Girl than sword girl. (more…)
