There’s a lot up in the air concerning Doctor Who these days. The recent season just began this past Saturday, and we know it’s Peter Capaldi‘s last as the Doctor, but along with the question of who the Doctor might be regenerating into is the question of when the Twelfth Doctor will regenerate. Capaldi said that he’s already filmed his “death” scene, but it was originally reported that Twelve will change up his appearance during this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special. And now there’s this, a rumour that there will be another Doctor on call when Capaldi says goodbye in December… (more…)
While the cast and crew continue to work on the new series, CBS seems unable or unwilling to set another premiere date for Star Trek: Discovery. Mark DeBevoise, the CBS Interactive President and Chief Operating Officer when asked by Vulture if the show might premiere this fall said, We’re not stating. Should that make you worry about the new series? DeBevoise went on to perhaps try to sooth those nervous feelings and you can check out what he said below. (more…)
With the exception of the special episode released on Christmas Day, Doctor Who fans have been waiting for more than a year for the latest season of the show. The episode marks the start of the last season starring Peter Capaldi as the mysterious Doctor and introduced Pearl Mackie as the newest companion, Bill Potts. After the long wait for the new episode, tension is high. Given a somewhat mixed response to some of the recent seasons, many people are intrigued to see how Steven Moffatt will round off his career as Head Writer and Executive Producer on the series.

Star Wars Rebels has become a fan favorite show among the legion of Star Wars fans. The show largely filled the gap that was left after the cancellation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (which was rushed off air so quickly the final season became a Netflix exclusive). The show is comprised of largely the same team, following the same art style who have actually managed to close a few plot threads from the other show—however, while Clone Wars followed young Jedi padawan Ahsoka Tano and her master Anakin Skywalker between the Episode II and III films, the new series is set years later, showing the formation of the early Rebel alliance pre-Episode IV.
Now we have our first look at Star Wars Rebels Season 4, which promises to once again prove that some of the best Star Wars stuff happens outside of the movies. (more…)
There’s more than just a new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi coming out of this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando. You might have missed this little gem, the deleted animated scene from Clone Wars that explained how Boba Fett’s helmet got that distinctive golf ball sized dent. Wait some of you are saying, Darth Vader dented Fett’s helmet in Enemy of the Empire. Well as you know that is all now considered Star Wars Legends and not canon. This new clip that you can see below was to be the new official version. Check it out below. (more…)
It took 10 episodes, but they finally did it: A Riverdale ragger! Where was the debauchery? Where was the revelry? Where were the forced errors from drunken escapades and the sober regret? Well, it just turns out that we had to wait for Jughead’s birthday, the bizarro confluence of the capped one’s hatred of birthdays, his girlfriend’s desire to put on a perfect facade, and his best friend’s deep seeded need to forget that his parents are divorcing and he doesn’t know what to do. Yes, this was a consequential Riverdale, and not just because that girl from Sixteen Candles appeared at the end. (more…)
There’s going to be a lot of Star Wars news the next couple of days, and this is one of the first items to come out of this four-day long Star Wars news orgy called Celebration. The event got underway in Orlando this morning, and although the news everyone wants to get is the long-awaited release of the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there’s going to be a lot of smaller news too. To wit, a series of 16 shorts called Star Wars: Forces For Destiny which will give the spotlight to many of the franchise’s female heroes. (more…)
While many people surely thought the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why was just another sappy teen drama, the show (which was based on the novel written by Jay Asher) instead proved to send one hell of a powerful message that is concerningly relatable to real life.
The show tells the story of Hannah (Katherine Langford), a high schooler who took her own life for the aforementioned 13 reasons, which are fleshed out in each episode by highlighting the specific ways that the people in her life wronged her thanks to a collection of cassette tapes… whether they realized it or not. This device allows us a look into Hannah’s tormented life as she navigates high school — at times invisible, at times a target, and at times something in between. It also presents itself as something like a horror story because this is a girl who had a support structure and people who cared about her. But sometimes that isn’t enough. Especially when weighed against the ample hell that some face. (more…)
When we last left the movie Superman, he was dead. Spoiler alert, but the Man of Steel, as portrayed by Henry Cavill, was killed in his heroic battle against Doomsday at the end of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But because the world needs a Superman, it fell to TV’s Supergirl to fill the void. In the second season premiere of the CW superhero show, Teen Wolf co-star Tyler Hoechlin appeared as the titular character’s cousin, and such was the tremendousness of the appearance that Hoechlin will be returning to the show in time for the season finale.

Fear. Human. Nature. Take numerous groups of people, isolate them within environments they are familiar with, but then cut them off from everything and everyone they know. Then watch what happens next. That’s what made 2007’s The Mist is such a frightening film to experience. It doesn’t help that it originates from the mind of Stephen King, but then Frank Darabont goes and turns it into something where only a marathon of Saturday morning cartoons will help cleanse your pallet. So, of course, it only makes sense that The Mist gets turned into a televisions series. And now two years after it’s initial announcement, the first trailer has dropped. If it’s any indication of what’s to come, then, please, feel free to leave the light one…all of them.
