AMC “companion series” Fear The Walking Dead may have closed out its first season at only six episodes, but the West Coast angle of our zombie apocalypse will carry on through The Walking Dead Season 6 to come. Watch the first chapter of web series Flight 462, potentially introducing our first Fear The Walking Dead Season 2 character!
It’s hard to dislike Taylor Swift, the rare pop star whose entire public persona seems to be built upon the fact that she’s gracious toward her passionate fans and a warrior for hard-working artists who just want to get paid for their work. It’s easy to join the cult of Taylor — even if her music isn’t for you, she seems like good people. But what happens when the entire world devotes their lives to their new pop idol master? SNL’s fake trailer for The Squad gives us an answer.
SNL has never been afraid to skewer politicians, taking aim at their policies and personal problems in equal measure. However, the show has also never been afraid to let those politicians appear on the show itself to prove that they’re good sports who can take a joke. Last night’s season premiere brought Hillary Clinton on stage to have an extended interaction with, well, Kate McKinnon’s impersonation of her.
Donald Trump feels less like an actual human being and more like a comedic monster dreamed up in the SNL writers room, so bringing him into the sketch comedy fray should have been easy. Heck, casting the generally brilliant Taran Killam as the loudmouthed Presidential hopeful is just about perfect. So how did it work out?
Tom Hiddleston is a man of many talents — he’s handsome, he can act, he can dance (watch out, Sam Rockwell), and soon he’ll prove his singing talents in the Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light. But he’s also quite skilled with celebrity impressions, as he proved this week on The Graham Norton Show, where he was asked to do his Robert De Niro impression for none other than De Niro himself.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones has taken an unusual approach to early promotion, only releasing its first photos and teasers a month or so before the premiere, leaving us to fill in the gap. Now, we know that acclaimed Orange is the New Black and Dexter director S.J. Clarkson will helm the first two installments, also acting as executive producer.
The moment The Flash first teased that Golden Age speedster Jay Garrick would join Barry Allen for Season 2, we knew the cheeky CW series couldn’t resist recreating some classic comic moments. Now, those photos come to life, as Barry and and a fully-costumed Jay rescue Patty Spivot in first photos from “Flash of Two Worlds.”
What, you thought Lethal Weapon the only iconic ‘80s property getting the TV reboot treatment today? What a story, Mark. In any case, there’s no inventing around this one, as Furious 7 helmer James Wan has in mind to reboot MacGyver for CBS, at long last.
