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!

The Disney brand has already come out strong this year. With the Star Wars franchise breaking records, and a full slate of Marvel movies coming this summer, in addition to some fan-favorite tv shows, the Mouse House seems to have its hands full. Or so one would think. But more is coming. Between Marvel shows such as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Jessica Jones, it may be surprising to hear that another story within the Marvel Universe could be coming to the small screen soon. After some on and off again rumors last year surrounding an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff, it seems ABC has finally made up its mind. A pilot episode has been ordered for the new original show titled Marvel’s Most Wanted, starring (more…)
Last spring, as the networks were preparing their fall shows, there was an announcement that ABC was working on a spin-off for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that would focus on the Moonlighting-esque solo adventures of Bobbi ‘Mockingbird’ Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood). When the fall schedule was announced, this new show was not a part of it, and it was widely assumed that the renewal of Agent Carter might have had something to so with that. But since everything old is new again in Hollywood, it sounds like the spin-off is back on, only don’t call it a spin-off. It’s a continuation of their story, you see. (more…)
It’s that time of year when fans learn whether their investment in a year’s worth of a TV show will pay off in a second season or whether it was time well wasted. TV upfronts are next week, the annual announcement by the networks of what they’ll be showing next year and on what day of the week you’ll be able to watch it, but since news goes better in several doses and not just a single big dose, we’re getting some early renewal and cancellation notices going into the weekend. ABC, for instance, has been playing its cards pretty close to the chest, but Marvel fans can breath easier today because not only will Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. be back next year, but so will Agent Carter.

Just a few days ago, it was put out there (to the interwebz) that Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD would be getting a spin-off. With nothing officially announced at that time, it left fans to ponder what characters or stories from the world of SHIELD would be branching out – Inhumans, Agents of SWORD perhaps? Well, now, we have word that the proposed spin-off is a set to show some more familiar characters, with Mockingbird and Hunter being at the center of it. Deadline Hollywood reports that Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood are finalizing deals for the new show. (more…)
While we’ve still got a few weeks to go until the March 3rd return of Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to ABC on Tuesday nights, fans of the Mockingbird have new reason to celebrate. Adrianne Palicki, who plays Bobbi Morse aka the Mockingbird, has been bumped up from guest star to series regular. What does this mean for her character? (more…)
If you watched last night’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode A Hen in the Wolf House then you saw Adrianne Palicki, Agent Bobbi Morse aka the Mockingbird let loose with those batons and kick Hydra butt all over the place. Of course she was dressed in her Head of Hydra Security uniform pictured above. We wouldn’t expect her to continue to wear that outfit once her cover is blown now would we? (more…)
The super hero small screen action continues as Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. starts their second season off with a bang going up against an old school Marvel villain, The Absorbing Man. Teen Wolf‘s Brian Patrick Wade goes full chrome dome to play Carl “Crusher” Creel, a long time Thor and Hulk villain. Check out his first official on set photo. (more…)
When news hit the Internet that From Dusk Till Dawn was coming to television, many people wondered why, and would the series match the frolicking fun of the original, or follow the less-than-satisfying sequels. Why? Director Robert Rodriguez says:
If the film is the short story, this is the novel. There was so much that I wanted to explore in that movie that I didn’t get to. (more…)
Remember a couple of weeks ago when Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel? I’m sure if there was one actress who could easily relate to the impact of being cast as comic’s number one female hero, it was Adrianne Palicki. Back in 2011, Palicki was cast in David E. Kelly‘s Wonder Woman TV pilot, and after internet backlash vivisected every released detail about the show, NBC eventually decided that they didn’t want it. That’s a shame because Palicki was pretty good in the role, once you get past the pilot’s tremendous narrative issues. But don’t feel too bad for the actress, in her opinion, as the old saying goes, all’s well that ends well. (more…)
