By now, you’ve probably binge-watched Jessica Jones, the second Marvel series from Netflix. But did you know the show was originally set up at ABC under a totally different title? The series began life as A.K.A. Jessica Jones? The comic it was based on, Alias, wouldn’t have worked as the title of the TV series because of the Jessica Garner spy show; eventually producers decided the “A.K.A.” part of the title was unnecessary and shortened the name to just Jessica Jones. There’s a nod to the original title in every episode, however; each episode title begins with “A.K.A.” – Episode 3 of Season 1, for example, is called “A.K.A. It’s Called Whiskey.” That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of the ScreenCrush series You Think You Know TV?
The contract shenanigans surrounding Arrow star Katie Cassidy have made it difficult to project when Laurel (or her Earth-2 counterpart) might return, but the Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 finale might offer a clue. Not only do producers confirm Laurel’s return, but also another fantasy great to rival the appearance of a young George Lucas.

Whether or not The Walking Dead has begun to show its age, the makeup and VFX crew only have more fun with their undead designs as time wears on. Case in point, the spiked “Winslow” walker from Sunday’s “New Best Friends” marked a new visual benchmark for The Walking Dead, one which producer and gore guru Greg Nicotero shares new behind-the-scenes art and photos.
The sizable delay in premiering Rick and Morty Season 3 has many a fan on edge, and where would Adult Swim be without the willingness to have a little fun? Surely they’d never run around and desert us, after promising to debut the first scene of Season 3, right?
Star Wars Rebels’ presence in Rogue One punctuated the fact that certain characters are bound to sit out the major of events of the of the original Star Wars; the first departure of which may have arrived with this weekend’s “Legacy of Mandalore.” Now, creator Dave Filoni addresses if said character will remain a regular presence, or if Rebels itself will continue through Season 4.
It’s a classic conundrum for serialized shows with child actors; younger characters invariably grow older than the story would suggest. The Walking Dead star Chandler Riggs has naturally aged seven years from its 2010 beginnings (compared with a relatively condensed timeline for the show), but even creator Robert Kirkman isn’t certain how old the character is in comics; let alone TV.
Who knew that it would take the infamous Gunpowder Plot to bring Game of Thrones and The Leftovers together? That’s the report on Kit Harington’s now-greenlit Gunpowder miniseries, as Liv Tyler and Sherlock star Mark Gatiss join the former Lord Commander in key roles.
