Game of Thrones Season 7 Recap: 'Beyond the Wall'

"Beyond the Wall," the penultimate episode in HBO's seventh season of Game of Thrones, concentrates its energies in one place, the north, with much of the action taking place exactly where its title suggests, beyond the wall. There are perf...

Game of Thrones Season 7 Recap: 'Eastwatch'

Netflix teases Stranger Things 2 with poster & release date

Netflix's Castlevania series looks like an anime

Review: Iron Fist (Season 1)

Iron Fist is such a tremendous failure on so many levels that it's fascinating to dissect. It's not fascinating to watch, however. The latest Marvel series on Netflix is a 13-hour bore that's 15% martial arts show and 85% boardroom drama. T...

First trailer for the CHiPs remake is pretty bad

Joining shows getting remade for the screen like The A-Team, 21 Jump Street, and Baywatch, is CHiPs, a show practically everyone forgot about. And like 21 Jump Street, this new Chips is trying to be a goofy buddy comedy that would reinvigor...
