You May Dispense with the Pleasantries, Vader Back for ‘Rebels’ Finale

Star Wars: Rebels first season wraps up on Monday with a very special guest star. Throughout this past season we’ve already welcomed great Star Wars luminaries like Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Frank Oz (Yoda), but this is huge. Everyone bow before the Dark Lord of the Sith because he’s arriving in animated form in the season finale of the Disney XD series. Considering that Rebels is set between the two trilogies, and since it was really only a matter of time before Kanan and the crew of the Ghost got too big to be merely a concern for some imperial goons and the creepy Inquisitor, it looks like the Emperor is sending in the big guns.

Last week on Gotham, ‘The Blind Fortune Teller’ saw Jim Gordon still fighting the good fight, Fish Mooney trying to take over the bad side of an organ farm, lil Bruce Wayne giving the board of Wayne Enterprises an ultimatum about getting their act cleaned up, the Penguin receiving a unique gift in the form of a brainwashed Butch and the supposed introduction of The Joker. This week brings yet another classic Batman baddie to the small screen in the form of The Red Hood. The Red Hood has taken many forms in Batman canon, including being part of the origin story for the actual Joker. In ‘The Red Hood’, however, the role is used to demonstrate the essence of crime in Gotham and it’s used to good effect. (more…)

When we last left Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Well, how do we put this, $#!% was going down! It’s been a long break between episodes and the show left us hanging at such a momentous point, the introduction of the Inhumans. Now, there’s an Inhumans movie on the way, coming soon to a theater near us… In four years. But S.H.I.E.L.D. made a huge leap in continuity relevance by introducing such an essential piece of lore for the development of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. (You know, because they can’t use the ‘M’ word.) With a little over a week till the return of S.H.I.E.L.D., ABC is now teasing what fate awaits one of the show’s key characters now that what’s Inhuman has been unleashed. (more…)

So what do you say about the 87th Annual Academy Awards and its list of nominated films that most people aren’t going to watch until they come out on Netflix (Foxcatcher and Whiplash you’ll be in my queue soon enough)? Or how do you recap a show in which all of its take away moments are instantly shared and talked about on social media? I’m truthfully not sure. But lets give it a try.

This year’s Oscars was fun, surprisingly relaxed, and cheerfully heart warming. It also featured Neil Patrick Harris in his underwear. So yeah, there’s that. (more…)

TV REVIEW: ‘The Walking Dead’ S5E11 “The Distance”

Well, I loved this episode of The Walking Dead. I just had to get that right out there first thing, because I’m sure that there will be a ton of commenters across the Internet bemoaning that The Distance was just another filler episode. People, there is no such thing as a filler episode. That is an Internet myth created by people who don’t really want character development, just guns, guts, and explosions. What this whole episode boiled down to was trust. Who could you trust, when could you trust them, and how do you build that trust. (more…)

Game of Thrones is a super serious show. For a live action fantasy it’s rife with violence, torment, politics, death, and copious amounts of nudity. Warring factions, family disputes, power plays, and survival…. all that is an illusion shattered when you watch this behind the scenes Blooper reel from Game of Thrones season 4.
