They may not be knocking their movie adaptations out of the park like Marvel has done with its characters, but DC has been doing very well for itself on the small screen. Hits like Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl have been scoring record audiences and it looks like the trend has continued to shoot upwards. (more…)
In the seven seasons aired so far, Archer has seen a truly diverse range of adventures for the espionage gang reluctant known as The Figgis Agency. Spies, independent intelligence contractors and, for brief period that wasn’t really all that brief, drug lords, the team returned to what they’re best at: cleaning up after the mishaps of the World’s Most Dangerous Spy, Sterling Archer. The seventh season saw the gang take on job after job, with a mystery hanging over them all the while that came to climax in a deadly cliffhanger that will finally be resolved this spring. (more…)
DC has been no stranger to great television and that is due to the amazing characters they have developed off the pages of comics and onto the small screen. The likes of Oliver Queen, Barry Allen, and more have been lighting up the airwaves, but have you ever stopped to consider the dangers they pose to regular folks? That’s the premise for Powerless debuting on NBC this year. Powerless follows run-of-the-mill human, Emily Locke, as she begins working for a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises (yes, THAT Wayne) that develops specialized products used to make normal people feel a little safer around all the metas flying/running around.
Sounds interesting enough, right? However, the trailer for Powerless just dropped and, well, let’s just say it doesn’t lead with a strong first impression. (more…)
Director Kevin Smith is a lifelong Batman fan and all around professional geek. Most of his films have some sort of Star Wars reference, he has written Batman, Green Arrow, and Daredevil comic book issues. Needless to say, his geek cred run deep. While he has been in a little bit of a slump for his experimental films, he has been killing it on the small screen. Smith directed two of the best episodes of The Flash (“The Runaway Dinosaur” and “Killer Frost”) and his Supergirl episode (“Supergirl Lives”) airs January 23rd. The lifelong Batman fan has never directed anything associated with his favorite comic book character Batman, until now.

Vincent D’Onofrio made a big impression as Kingpin in the first season of Daredevil, and no, that was not a fat joke. Widely hailed as one of the best villains of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, D’Onofrio’s portrayal of the head of New York’s organized crime was highly-praised, and after his brief return in season two of Daredevil many thought it portended bigger things for the crime boss, like an appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming for instance. Sadly, that won’t happen, but D’Onofrio wants you to know that when the time comes for Kingpin to leave jail and take back the city, he’ll be ready… (more…)
It’s a terribly kept secret that there’s too much good TV to watch; for every series you manage to finish watching, there’s two more already queued up and ready to binge. It’s an embarrassment of riches, as in you’re embarrassed when people ask you if you’ve seen the hot new show and you’re forced to answer “no” because, hey, there are only so many hours in a day… That’s what you need semi-professional critics for. In reviewing the last 12 months, and looking at the plethora of sci-fi, superhero, horror, and other genre TV shows, we’ve paired it all down to a Top 10. Here, in our humble estimation, are the Top 10 Nerdy TV Shows of 2016! (more…)
It seems that Futurama could live forever based on the love of it’s fans alone. Fandom fervor has resulted in the show coming back from the dead before and now it seems it has done so once again… well, if not unofficially.

The last time any of you heard the name Simon Belmont (or the Belmont family for that matter) mentioned on television was in the late 80’s or early 90’s when a little show called Captain N: The Game Master was being broadcast. He wasn’t the star of the show, but he was definitely one of the most memorable characters or else we wouldn’t be mentioning him. Speaking of the Belmonts, there is a little rumor going around the internet talking about the possibility of a Castlevania TV series coming to fruition. Don’t let the picture above fool you, if it does come true, the theme better be Bloody Tears from Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest.
There’s still three months to go until the March 2017 premiere of Adult Swim‘s third season of Rick And Morty, but creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland couldn’t wait to give fans a taste of the new season. This unfinished video with some serious “F” bombs should lighten your day and help you get through to the weekend. Just turn down the sound if you’re at work or put on headphones so that annoying co-worker in the next cubicle can’t complain to HR and check out this sneak peek.
