The beginning of May gave us some heart-wrenching news. Some of our favorite shows faced cancellation, some of which had been written into cliffhangers or were going to leave story lines left unresolved. But like winged angels from on-high, three networks swooped in and saved three shows and left fans rejoicing and singing their praises. But that’s only part of the story. Fans and crew alike took to social media to campaign for the survival of their shows. Which shows found their second chance?
Back when Saturday morning cartoons were the reason for existence, the majority of 80 and early 90’s kids were watching such classic action/adventure cartoons like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Thundercats, He-Man and the Masters of The Universe and so on. In the mean time, there were other more obscure cartoons. Animated series that all but a few can vaguely recall. Some good. Some bad. All with kickass theme songs and intros….. (more…)
Ford (Anthony Hopkins) muses when addressing Maeve that “mankind is poised midway between the gods and the beasts” in this penultimate episode of the season. The embodiment of that statement is William (Ed Harris) who gets the bulk of the screen time in this episode that, ironically on father’s day, spent time showing how bad a father William was to Emily.
We finally get a better look at his world outside the park that helped to make his character so interesting. We see his wife, Juliet (Sela Ward) and daughter Emily (Katja Herbers) when they were still a family but were beginning to unravel. We also get hints and revelations about what has really been going on in the park.
As per usual, SPOILERS!!!!

The big thing in Hollywood of late has been reboots of old shows. After the success of the many iterations of Star Trek and the Ronald D. Moore update to the venerable Battlestar Galactica in 2004. There seems to be a predilection toward recreating old series instead of creating something new.
With reboots of well-known and popular shows like The Jetsons, Lost in Space, and The X-Files all getting updates for the modern era, there are lots of shows that deserve a chance at their own re-imagining.
Chloe Dykstra, cast-member of Heroes of Cosplay and co-host of the web series Just Cos, grew up apart of the entertainment and nerd communities. This is because her father, John Dykstra, is a special effects artist, best known for his work on Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Spider-Man, and Spider-Man 2.
