It’s fairly certain that if you’re like the majority of fans, or at least the ones that log their outrage online, then you did not enjoy the first Inhumans trailer released by Marvel Studios and ABC. So everybody was looking to San Diego Comic Con for them to make up the difference, and get everyone well and truly excited about the possibilities of the new series coming later this summer in IMAX theatres before its TV debut. So are you feeling, Inhuman?  (more…)

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Stargate SG-1, the series spun-off from the 1994 Roland Emmerich movie about an Air Force project to send people to other planets through the titular ancient alien transportation device. Many fans wondered if the occasion of San Diego Comic Con might force Stargate rights holders to make a special announcement about new adventures, especially since the two SG-1 spin-offs were promised continuations that never materialized. So when we tell you this is not the Stargate news you were expecting, trust us, this is not the Stargate news you were expecting.  (more…)

All eyes are going to be on the Avengers and their pending Infinity War, but long before that, we’re finally going to see Marvel’s street-level, and streetwise, heroes team up for The Defenders. The series launches next month on Netflix, so the hype-building has begun and frankly not much has to be done because we’ve been building up to this for three years now. So what can they do to help sell this movie in face of that? How about bringing on the guy who knows Marvel heroes better than anyone?  (more…)

At this point, Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss can pretty much write their own ticket. The HBO show based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice novels (still waiting for you to finish them George!) is in its 7th season and going strong after this week’s season premiere. As this is Game of Thrones’ penultimate season before the big climactic conclusion of the much-loved show, everyone is wondering what is next for the famed duo. After all, they managed to give us Martin’s brilliant work and have millions of people absorbed in the world of Westeros. Whatever they do next will have to be something just as big (and just as good).

The ratings for Game of Thrones’ seventh season premiere have not yet been posted, but given that the premiere was delayed, it’s the second last season of the show, and that Thrones is one of the biggest shows on TV, the size of the audience watching it is predictably going to be huge. Until we get more empirical evidence, maybe we can make the point this way: excitement over the Game of Thrones premiere was so huge that it caused HBO to crash. Or its websites anyway. (more…)

Marvel‘s new series Runaways has had a new trailer put on the Internet, not through official channels it seems, but the new Hulu bound series trailer does show the whole gang and sets up the series premise of super villain parents and the teenagers that discover their parents horrible secret. Check out the trailer below while it’s still up and running. (more…)

Welcome to episode 10 of Twin Peaks‘ revival run, and the question remains, what version of the show are we going to get this night? Is it going to be confusingly psychedelic, or are we going to take another step forward in trying to unravel some of the things that have been brewing since the beginning? It turns out that David Lynch and Mark Frost‘s approach this week was the later. The noose that Dougie Jones doesn’t know about is closing on him, the FBI goes deeper into the case, and Richard Horne gives us a couple of other reasons to hate him.  (more…)

Game of Thrones

The wait is finally over. Winter has finally come! Complete with an HBO countdown clock, Game of Thrones returned to the premiere pay channel Sunday night, and when last we left off, Daenerys was on her way to Westeros and had teamed up with the Greyjoy siblings, the Tyrells, and the Sands to take the fight to Cersei and claim the throne.

Cersei had not only defeated the High Sparrow, but after unleashing Wildfire like the Mad King did before her, she now has assumed the throne (thanks to her son’s suicide), and her brother-lover Jaime doesn’t look too happy about it.

Arya started to enact her vengeance and killed Walder Frey after serving him his own sons as part of a meat pie! Sam has made it to the Citadel to learn from the Maesters on how to stop the White Walkers. Jon Snow has been crowned King of the North by the Northern families, oh yeah, and he’s also Lyanna Stark’s bastard child, not Ned’s, which means Jon’s really a Targaryen! With so many running stories, Season 7 promises to be exciting!

Today we have proof that internet rumors and the tracking of London gambling establishments are nothing to go by, as the BBC has announced the identity of the actor who will play the Doctor in the legendary sci-fi series Doctor Who going forward.
