The first two episodes of the final season of Boardwalk Empire were focused on the past and how "those who cannot remember it are condemned to repeat it;" and yet, as this week illustrates, George Santayana's other famous quote is equally apt for Season 5 (and the series as a whole) so far: "Only the dead have seen the end of war."
This week on The Strain, both the adults and the kid go off wandering, with one finding a more positive outcome than the rest. Plus, Eph and Fet work on their pissing match skills.
Throughout the early 2000s, Hilary Duff was at the top of her game. The teen star turned pop singer released a few popular albums and starred in movies like Cheaper By The Dozen and A Cinderella Story. However, sheís most famous for her role on Disneyís hit kids series Lizzie McGuire.
American Horror Story: Freak Show has spent the last several months teasing its ensemble cast. Weíve seen videos and photos from the set of the Florida-based series, and this week FX released a bevy of photos showing spectacular, colorful costuming and some truly terrible facial hair. The photos are particularly compelling because they give us a good look at the characters played by Wes Bentley, Emma Roberts and Frances Conroy.
Criminal Minds is headed into its 10th season in just a couple of weeks. As a long-running procedural, the series has gone through plenty of casting changes over the years, but this yearís addition has been one of the shows most prominent. Former teen actress and sex symbol Jennifer Love Hewitt is headed to the BAU and sheís got the professional wardrobe and haircut to prove it.
Can Saul Goodman get an Amen? Doesn't look like he's having much luck there. The latest preview for the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul only gives us ten seconds of Saul Goodman, but it's ten seconds of great Saul goodness.
Last week on Doctor Who, Steven Moffat gave us a perfect throwback to classic Moffat writing and scares. After the last two weeks of Doctor Who, the show seems to be on a roll in terms of creativity and adventure. Which makes this week's episode, ďTime Heist,Ē a little bit of a let down. It's very stylish, but reminiscent of Doctor Who's past
True Detective has worked extremely hard to keep its second season under wraps. HBO isnít talking. Showrunner Nic Pizzolatto isnít talking. But Colin Farrell is totally talking and over the weekend he confirmed his involvement in the second season of the detective series. Thatís one casting down and a ton more to go.
Fox is one of several networks entering the small-screen superhero fray this fall but their comic-book adaptation stands apart from the rest by shifting the focus onto the supporting cast. Bruce Wayne's tragic beginning is only the catalyst for Gotham to show how the DC Comics' city known for criminality got its start. As for the show's beginnings, the series premiere is a lot like Two-Face; it's half-good and half-bad.
As I get older, there are fewer and fewer times when Iím on the list of ďsmartest guys in the room,Ē and Iím okay with that. I donít chew tables and I donít try to walk with both feet going forward at the same time, so I do all right. In CBSí revved-up new drama Scorpion, viewers enter the world of someone who is always the smartest guy within thousands of square miles of the room. His name is Walter O'Brien.
After what Iím referring to as Ye Olde Arrow Debacle last week, itís clear we just canít trust anyone these days. Have no fears this week, however, as Zooey Deschanel is here to do all the things you expect Zooey Deschanel to do.
We already know we wonít be seeing Game of Thrones characters like Bran and Hodor until Season 6, and that Jonathan Pryce and others have signed on to the show in recent months. And now we have one more character surprise in store.
ABC has released a new poster for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. The Marvel drama returns to TV for its second season in a matter of days. (Spoilers if you're not caught up on Season 1!) Let's take a look at this poster...
A recent batch of clips has popped up, and the video seen above features one of the most important moments in comic history, as Gotham City detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) meets a young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) for the first time, cementing a lifelong semi-partnership in the name of justice.
Peter Capaldiís run as Doctor Who twelfth Time Lord is hitting an early stride as his dark stoicism is giving way to some interesting character development. Hereís hoping heís turned into a man of all smiles by the time Christmas the holidays roll around.
