While the tenth season or series as the Brits call it starts just around the corner on April 15th for Doctor Who, rumors swirl that both Peter Capaldi and his brand new companion Pearl Mackie will both be leaving at the season’s end. Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch) is taking over the showrunner duties from Steven Moffat and while Capaldi’s exit was pretty much confirmed by Capaldi himself, now Mackie’s role as the new companion is in question. Check out the new trailer and statement from the BBC about the issue. (more…)
Although the first season ended to a mixed reaction, striking a chord somewhere between madcap oddity and underwhelming wheel spinning, it did at least leave us where Preacher Is meant to be. Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy are on the road, God is missing and the Saint of Killers is hot on their trail, leaving a bloody mess of corpses in his wake. For fans of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s comics that means that the scene is now set, and it’s time for Preacher to start doing what it does best; delivering high-octane insanity, irreverent religious satire, vampires, guns, bizarre sexual fetishes and everything in-between. From the teaser that just dropped, it looks like that’s the plan. (more…)
The seventh season of The Walking Dead has not been without its ups and downs. Let’s face it, the only good episode to air during the first half of the season was the season premiere itself. The second half of the season was far from perfect, but thankfully, some adjustments were made and the show got back to telling stories that the audience could care about. So before we take that trip to Spoiler-town, it should be said that the season finale contained elements that were easily predictable and elements that were not. (more…)

Not everyone knows the name Elastic, but theirs were the golden handshakes that introduced you to most of your favourite TV shows. From Game Of Thrones to The Night Manager, by way of Daredevil, Westworld, True Detective and The Crown, Elastic have an eye for creating opening sequences for shows that are captivating, enthralling and instantly iconic. When it came to introducing the world to American Gods, Starz’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s classic novel of mythology versus modernity, Brian fuller was never going to go with anyone else. (more…)
Admittedly the 5 minute photoshop job above does blow the lead on this, but yes, set your phasers to beets ’cause it looks like Dwight Schrute will be entering the final frontier. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting (as they do) that Rainn Wilson (known mostly for his time on the NBC hit The Office and less so for The Rocker) will join CBS’s forthcoming Star Trek: Discovery as one of the franchises most interesting characters and one from the original series no less. Harcourt Fenton Mudd! (more…)
Welcome back to Riverdale, where skies are always gloomy, your neighbours are ready to stab you in the back, and where Pop’s still open 24 hours a day for damn good coffee and cherry pie… Wait, wrong murder mystery. The mysteries on this first new Riverdale after a two week break had more to do with the parents then it had to do with the still dead Jason Blossom, which is okay because the storyline gave us an opportunity to be reminded of a very important point: Archie is the worst.

Normally, this is the time when we would be getting most excited about the pending arrival of the next season of Game of Thrones. April was usually the launching point for the new season, but the arrival of winter on the series required that shooting dates to be pushed back, so summertime is the time for Game of Thrones now, and winter is very much hinted at in this latest teaser for the show’s penultimate season. In it, three of the series primary characters get ready for the final battle, glaring at the screen with the expectation that some bad stuff is about to go down. (more…)
As predicted, the season finale of Legion did not end predictably. You can stuff the evil entity that’s possessing you into a head coffin, you can be surrounded by evil government stormtroopers ready to pump your friends’ guts full of lead, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun, take your time, and just let the situation unfold in its own way. Yes, even though our heroes were faced with two remarkable high anxiety situations going on in this week’s Legion, the entire affair unfolded in a very laid back way. This has been a wonderful eight episode ride, which is why it’s a shame that there’s a couple of concerns moving on to season two. (more…)
It’s been almost 14 years since Buffy The Vampire Slayer signed off the air. In the end, all that remained was a hole in Sunnydale and a hole in the hearts of all the fans from around the world. Over the years, stars from the show have been in an out of the spotlight and headlines. Some of them even make con appearances every now and then. But it’s been quite some time since all of them have been in the same room. There was Buffy, Xander, Willow, Angel, Cordelia, Spike, Dawn – even Joss Whedon was there. So many people, so many feelings, so many memories. When you’re ready, make the leap and keep on reading.
