Ash Vs. Evil Dead had plenty of history to draw on for the Starz take on Bruce Campbell’s chainsaw-wielding champion, though rights issues prevented any reference to the medieval Army of Darkness. Then, producers claimed Season 2 was free and clear to pay homage to Ash’s past adventures, but according to groovy Bruce himself, those reports were exaggerated.

The divide between Marvel TV and movies has gotten a bit fuzzier over the years, to the point Alfre Woodard can play separate roles in Civil War and Luke Cage, but actors nonetheless show caution choosing their MCU role. Such was apparently the case for Breaking Bad guy Giancarlo Esposito, who turned down a Marvel TV role in the hopes of securing something on the big screen.

If any series stood accused of missing what makes live-action superheroes enjoyable, it’d be FOX’s Gotham. Well, wouldn’t you know it - the showrunner who thinks “prenatal origin stories” and sexualizing 14-year old characters make great fodder for Batman’s beginnings says “I don’t think superheroes work very well on TV.”

FOX has made reasonably adamant that next year’s 24: Legacy would serve to carry on the spirit of the franchise moreso than its characters, something Kiefer Sutherland aggressively seems to corroborate. That said, producers might have in mind to return at least Mary Lynn Rajskub’s Chloe before long.

September is bringing a whole slew of new titles to Netflix Instant, but that also means a bunch are on their way out. You know you need to weep to ‘A Walk to Remember’ one more time, but you also better cross ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’ off your list before it’s gone for good. Just make sure you leave time for a double feature of ‘Zoolander’ and ‘Crocodile Dundee.’ Also what the heck is ‘My Babysitter’s a Vampire: The Movie?’ I don’t know, but I think you need to add it to your queue immediately before you miss this opportunity.

However many loved Season 1 of CBS’ Supergirl, few would argue the DC drama suffered a few growing pains, and left room for improvement in Season 2. Moving to The CW (and Vancouver) makes that transition difficult to gauge, but producer Andrew Kreisberg claims Supergirl Season 2 will enjoy the same boon that Arrow did in its revered second run.

The Simpsons has pulled few punches when it comes to presidential candidate Donald Trump (they kind of owe it to themselves), and Season 28 will feature a trio of major experts to take on the infamous “Trump University.” Not only will Neil deGrasse Tyson lend his voice, so too will Suze Orman and screenwriter Robert McKee.
