A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2 gets a second trailer

A Series of Unfortunate Events was one of my favorite book series growing up. It was morbid, dark, and had a very British sense of humor. Thus far, Netflix has been doing a bang up job adapting the series. Season 1 had plenty of twists and...

Review: The End of the F**cking World

An adaptation of the 2013 graphic novel by Charles Forsman, The End of the F**king World is an early 2018 drop for Netflix aimed to cash in on the troubled teen variety of television series' success. Maybe it's done in a slightly diffe...


New trailer for Amazon's The Tick's second half of season 1

I'm getting a pretty swell birthday present this year: new episodes of Amazon's The Tick. The first half of season one turned out to be something pretty great. A new take on the the big blue superhero that still felt like it was The Tick w...


CW releases new origin trailer for Black Lightning

The CW's Arrowverse shows have varied in quality throughout the seasons, but they've always had a certain charm even when it's not their best run. They definitely seem to understand the DC universe better than the movies do. Maybe they get...


The Walking Dead Season 8 Recap: 'Time for After'

Perhaps the biggest news of the evening was that Rick Grimes was not naked inside that shipping container. I probably should have started with the spoiler warning. Sorry. [Editor's Note: This recap will obviously go into detail about last n...


Why aren't you watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (from here on out known as Agents because screw those periods) is kicking off its fifth season tomorrow night and I couldn't be more excited. However, as we learned over the summer, not as many people are ...

Review: Rick and Morty (Season 3)

Rick and Morty is a dense series. Not because of its content per se, but because of the discussions it brings to the table. Its a series constantly at odds with its predilection for toilet humor and the overbearing cynicism of its deli...


Bob's Burgers serving up a movie for 2020

Bob's Burgers is one of those shows I never expected to love as much as I do now. It started a bit slowly, but once it really steered into its grounded absurdity (an oxymoronic nature Bob's Burgers balances so well) it took off and some of ...


Underworld franchise is moving to television

Like some sort of early 2000s zombie that just won't die the Underworld franchise is making a move to television with creator Len Wiseman bringing the show to the small screen. The director/writer/producer and his production compa...

Review: The Defenders (Season 1)

Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9 comes October 1

In snark-free news, HBO announced Curb Your Enthusiasm's oft-desired, long overdue, long-rumored return. There's a trailer of sorts, though it's more of just an announcement proving this is actually happening: it has been six years, af...

Kevin Bacon has worms: Syfy brings back TV Tremors reboot

Because Hollywood is essentially a seething heap of worms mindlessly burrowing through recycled soil looking for fresh fodder, we're getting a second Syfy Tremors reboot, but this time with bacon! Kevin Bacon will reprise the roll he first ...


New trailer for HBO's Game of Thrones Season 7 satisfies

It's been roughly a month since the last trailer for HBO's Game of Thrones dropped, but when you're hotly anticipating one of the best shows on TV, that wait can become an agonizing struggle. On top of that, GoT is premiering in summer rath...


Continental centric prequel to John Wick planned for TV

In what could only be described as an answer to my prayers, a prequel of sorts to the 2014 breakout hit John Wick is being planned for TV. The kicker? It's all centered around The Continental hotels where no assassin business of any sort ca...


HBO's Game of Thrones Season 7 has a real trailer, finally

While HBO released a teaser spot for Game of Thrones season 7 two months ago, it was more of a narrative reminder of what's to come based off of existing soundbites. No new footage was revealed. This was a problem for the rabid GoT fan, as ...

A teaser for the Castlevania adaptation on Netflix has just been posted on Netflix Latin America's Twitter. Watch it before it's gone! Okay, there's not enough here to actually criticize. As for the visuals, I'm fine with it. Besi...

Baywatch Review photo

Review: Baywatch

Baywatch is another film in the same vein of nostalgic television reboots like The A-Team, CHiPs, and the crazily successful 21 Jump Street. A show known only for attractive people running in slow motion serving as a sort of softcore a...
