Oh no, not another zombie show. Yes, the trend is powerful, and it continues in full force and without any sign of stopping with the upcoming new series Z Nation. At the National Fan Expo in Toronto, executive producer Craig Engler and co-star Tom Everett Scott were on hand to tell fans why their show was different from The Walking Dead, why you don’t have to choose between the two, and how the show will reconcile both slow and fast zombies into the same show universe.

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Poster And Teasers Are Appropriately Disturbing

- 08-29-14TV Posted by Aspry Jones

Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series ‘American Horror Story’ is unique in that every season is a new tale with new characters, using mostly the same actors. They effectively tackled the ghost story theme in season 1, went batshit crazy in season 2′s insane asylum, and dealt with modern day witches in last year’s ‘Coven.’ Fans of the show were ecstatic to learn this season’s ‘Freak Show’ would have a carnival setting. Obviously Murphy and friends have yet to run out of unsettling ideas. And in true series fashion, the marketing has been pretty spot on. In promotion of their sideshow fright show in 1950′s Jupiter, Florida, the series has released a poster and a few teasers. If the cringe-worthy photo of a girl trapped in a birdcage does it for you, keep going and I’ll show you more freaks. (more…)

The stage was set, the fans were in their seats, but when the time came for the curtain call of the man once known as the Green Ranger (then White Ranger) on Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, Jason David Frank, he wasn’t there. For the nerdy ready to revel in the glory of one of the original Power Rangers, it was a blow to the excitement level on this first day of the National Fan Expo, but as the fates would have it, Frank wasn’t snubbing the con, he was stopped from entering Canada at the border. What gives? We have the deets. (more…)

Whatever happened to predictability?  Looks like you can find it pretty much anywhere in Hollywood.  As anyone with a childhood knows, Hollywood loves to repackage and rebrand old material to try to cash in on your nostalgia.  Most times, this is rather unsuccessful, both in execution and reception, but with the recent Boy Meets World spinoff, Girl Meets World, audiences discovered a reboot can be exactly what fans of the original want.  Well, another sitcom is about to get rebooted and all we can do is hope that it will be as wonderful as we all want it to be.

You might recall an enthusiastic push from fans prior to the casting of Andrew Garfield as The Amazing Spider-Man to give the role to Community co-star Donald Glover. You might even remember Glover egging that campaign on, and wearing Spider-Man pajamas in the second season premiere of Community. True, Glover didn’t get the part, but when the nerd gods close a door, they also open a window. And with that, we get the news that Glover has been cast to give voice to Ultimate universe Spidey Miles Morales in the new season of the Disney XD series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors. (The series is being re-named for its third season.) (more…)

Zeb Kicks @$$ in New ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ Short

The more I see of Star Wars: Rebels, the more I get excited about it. I wish I could have said the same about The Clone Wars animated series, but while I will admit that it got better with time, that initial taste offered in movie theaters left a lot to be desired. There’s nothing bitter about these Rebels shorts though, and once again this sneak peak at the upcoming Disney XD show reinforces the idea that it’s going to fun, action-packed and has a pretty decent sense of humor. In “Entanglement,” the new character Zeb proves that while the Force may not be with him, he can definitely still use force. (more…)
