Where last week saw our first look at Sony TV's forthcoming PlayStation series 'Powers,' debuting a photo look at Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward as comic characters Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, Sony is seriously supercharging their promotion. Not only have four new images of the Brian Michael Bendis-adapted series come to light, but so too will the first trailer at a New York Comic-Con 2014 panel!
'Captain America' star Hayley Atwell will return as Marvel's 'Agent Carter' as soon as tomorrow's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 premiere, but Peggy's spinoff series may yet upstage ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent drama. The latest to join the cast of 'Agent Carter' is none other than 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'True Detective' star Shea Whigham, ostensibly the show's male lead.
'The Walking Dead' season 5 draws closer and closer to its October 12 premiere, but even with a wealth of footage and photos to show for the AMC horror-drama, fans still have some major questions about the premiere. Answers are coming, as a new trailer for the season 5 premiere puts a familiar face in stealth mode at Terminus, along with a tease of at least three characters in major peril!
Heading into 'SNL''s 40th season premiere this coming weekend, we've heard plenty of additions to the cast and more than a few changes along the way, but we may already have our first major departure. A new report suggests that current senior cast member Kenan Thompson will say goodbye after the current season, leaving the 'SNL' cast behind for good.
Over the weekend we learned of 'Game of Thrones' season 5 that a departed character may yet make a return appearance from beyond the grave, but far more exciting is the prospect of seeing some of our favorite characters in vastly new circumstances. See who has landed where (with brand new looks!) in a round of spoiler-ly set photos from 'Game of Thrones' season 5!
This past summer alone has hosted dozens of headlines ripe for the 'South Park' treatment, and with the long-running animated Comedy Central series due to premiere its 18th season this coming Wednesday night, Matt and Trey have picked a fine topic from the starting gate: The NFL. Watch 'South Park' tackle the Washington Redskins debacle in the first clip from the new season premiere, "Go Fund Yourself!"
Welcome back to another installment of the Monday Morning Critic. In this space each week, I’ll be looking at the week that was in addition to the week ahead in television. The format will shift each week, as the world of TV will dictate the form and content of each piece.
AMC's 'Breaking Bad' spinoff 'Better Call Saul' has kept a relatively low profile since announcing its 2015 premiere, but a few new tidbits have emerged to tide us over until Saul, er...Jimmy McGill becomes the center of his own story. Get another teased glimpse into the prequel world of 'Better Call Saul,' and find out what 'Breaking Bad' star will reprise their role in the new series!
'True Detective' season 2 rumors have become the Hydra of TV news, wherein the dismissal of any one rumor sees two more (or seven) take its place. Colin Farrell's status among the leading candidates, however, has scarcely been in question since its arrival, and now it seems the Irish actor has at last confirmed his 'True Detective' season 2 casting.
Depressing though it may be, 'Game of Thrones' fans have gotten somewhat used to the fact that the series' most beloved characters have a tendency to meet their makers beyond a certain point. Season 4 finale "The Children" said goodbye to several major characters from the HBO fantasy-drama, but one actor teases that his/her character may yet return in season 5.
