For anyone who has ever sat down and read a single issue of 2000 AD’s Judge Dredd comic, they knew the first film released in 1995 starring Sylvester Stallone was a far cry from the source material. Thankfully, Hollywood got its act together in 2012 and released Dredd starring Karl Urban in the titular role. Though the film was not successful financially, it has acquired a cult following that has demanded a return to Mega City One to include Urban whose portrayal was comic book worthy. On May 10th, it was announced that our favorite Street Judge would be returning to television in the series Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, but Urban’s involvement and details about the series were scant… until now!
On Arrow, Oliver Queen has had 5 years in Lian Yu to prepare himself to be physically and mentally capable of “saving the city.” Being a vigilante who willingly takes on criminals, metahumans, dark magic powered warlords, and even aliens, he’s gotta be in tip top shape to do so. As a result, actor Stephen Amell is known for his physical prowess. We’ve all seen him use the Salmon Ladder, which is no easy feat even for regular stuntmen to use. In addition to performing most of his own stunts on Arrow and the other DC TV shows within the “Arrowverse,” the actor has appeared in WWE Raw and even performed on their pay-per-view Summerslam event where he performed in a tag team event. Sure, wrestling is “fake,” but the stunts are real and Amell gives 110% in all his physical activities.
It has taken almost as long as it took for Riker to get his own ship, but fans finally have hope for Star Trek: Discovery. CBS All Access has dropped the first trailer for the new series. Many were concerned about the shows fate after it was pushed back from being released earlier this year and the departure of show runner, Bryan Fuller but the first trailer for the new series, thus giving some fans a much-needed, new hope.
For all that fans have been clamouring for a new series of Arrested Development, both before and after Netflix‘s original fourth season, the fifth season of the hugely popular TV series has proved elusive. It has been in very high demand, since the show had developed an enormous cult following when it hit streaming sites many years after its initial release, and the fourth season just wasn’t enough to satisfy hungry fans. Recently, rumours have been gaining traction that the fifth season might finally be in production and that the patience of the Bluth family’s avid watchers may soon be rewarded. (more…)
The nature of Star Trek: Discovery is as mysterious now as it was about a year and a half ago when it was first announced. In a different world, the series would have premiered some time this month (of course in another different world, it would have premiered this past January), but CBS and Paramount are taking their time developing the series, which Trekkies are hoping is only good news as they eagerly await the first new Star Trek to appear on their TV screens in 12 years. Now, a first look at the new series in the form of an official photo shows two of the main characters in action, including the woman they call “Number One.” (more…)
Many of you might only know The Witcher from the wildly successful video game series, but Andrzej Sapkowski‘s book series that the game was based on are even more popular. The series has been translated into 20 different languages and sold around the world.

The time has finally come. The moment that fans have been dreading almost all season arrived during this week’s episode of The Flash. Appropriately titled, “Infantino Street,” this episode felt like one of those tests you’ve known about all year, but no matter how much studying you do, you’ll never feel fully prepared for it. With the last 24 hours at hand, the pressure is on. However, all you can do is stare at the clock as it counts down to the last moments of your life. It looks like desperate times call for desperate measures. For this, Flash is going to need the help of an old friends. Warning: Spoilers ahead!
You may remember that a couple of weeks ago HBO announced they were working on four different Game of Thrones spin-offs. Time’s running out for the cable channel’s cash cow, they’ve only got two seasons and 13 episodes left on their appointment Sunday viewing epic before it goes to re-run land, so finding a way to keep the Game of Thrones name on your TV is kind of key to their long-term strategy. So what does the man that created the basis for the series, George R.R. Martin, have to say about all this? Well he confirmed it’s all going down, and added a surprising new detail in the process.

When we last left Supergirl/Kara Zor-El/Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) and Friends, they were faced with the arrival of a Daxamite invasion fleet, the result of a Stargate-inspired portal created by Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath). The Daxamite queen, Rhea (Teri Hatcher), took full advantage of Lena’s weak point – the lack of a loving maternal figure in her life – to convince an unwitting Lena that the portal she was building with the Luthor family’s money was for the public good (a matter transporter). Before she could do anything about her betrayal, however, Lena found herself aboard the Daxamite mothership, with Rhea at her bedside. Rhea’s plan (or part of it)? Marry off her reluctant son and Supergirl’s boyfriend, Mon-El (Chris Wood) to Lena, uniting (New) Daxam and Earth. Their half-human/half-Daxamite offspring would rule Earth (or something). (more…)
A lone starship venturing out into the final frontier, her crew bedecked in brightly coloured uniforms. A menagerie of humans and aliens, the best a collective civilized worlds has to offer on a voyage of discovery and adventure.
Now with toilet jokes!
Yes, while Star Trek Discovery is still MIA, sophomore humor specialist and huge Star Trek nerd, Seth MacFarlane‘s dropped the trailer for The Orville, a one-hour sci-fi comedy about the trials and tribulations of a second rate crew trying to forge their destiny among the star, maybe. (more…)
