A great many eons ago, revered Alan Moore-Eddie Campbell graphic novel ‘From Hell’ slashed into theaters with a mediocre Johnny Depp-led take on the Jack the Ripper tale. And while Moore famously criticized the adaptation to hell and back, 20th Century Fox may yet try again to adapt ‘From Hell’ as an FX event miniseries in the future.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its ninth installment in “Harvey Dent,” as Gordon turns to the city’s trustworthy ADA (Nicholas D’Agosto) for help solving the Wayne murders, while Bruce and Alfred take in Selina Kyle as a witness to the crime, and Penguin unravel’s Fish Mooney’s plot against Falcone.
We’d been hearing about it for some time, but at last HBO has made Bad Robot’s star-studded ‘Westworld‘ TV series a reality. The pay-cable network has granted a full season order to Jonathan Nolan’s adaptation of the 1973 sci-fi classic, whose cast boasts the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood and more, setting a 2015 premiere with the new ‘Westworld’’s first teaser.

‘The Walking Dead‘ season 5 has taken us all across the map in its first 7 episodes, but after Carol and Daryl’s big city adventures, and Abraham’s wild and wacky ride to D.C., the focus finally returns to those left at the church after the big cannibal cookout. See Carl dropping some wisdom on Father Gabriel in our first clip from the penultimate ‘Walking Dead’ episode of 2014, “Crossed”!
‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 brings to life its 6th episode with “Consumed,” as Daryl and Carol make their way into the city in search of Beth, only to discover a more dangerous set of circumstances than they could have imagined.
Honda has decided to take a hint from the film and television industry this holiday season by taking advantage of your nostalgia. The company's new ads feature some of your old pals, like Jem, G.I. Joe, Strawberry Shortcake, Stretch Armstrong, and Skeletor—OK, maybe Skeletor wasn't one of your childhood “friends.” It depends on what kind of kid you were.
Few things are as desperate, unfunny and generally sad as the modern television sitcom, so it's only natural that ‘SNL’ would put this format right in its sights. While ‘The Dudleys’ may not be as wild or transgressive as something like ‘Too Many Cooks,’ its satire of the trouble with TV comedy in the year 2014 is on point, concluding with a statement that's surprisingly (and welcomingly) vicious for modern ‘SNL.’
Last night's ‘SNL’ was like a checklist of every possible and necessary Woody Harrelson joke. After all, if you've got him hosting your show, you have to do a ‘Hunger Games’ sketch and you have to do a ‘True Detective’ sketch. However, one subject reigns supreme when you talk about this acclaimed, award-winning actor: you have to do a marijuana sketch.
With Woody Harrelson guest-hosting ‘SNL,’ it was inevitable that the show would break out the ‘True Detective’ jokes at some point. After all, few modern shows have grabbed pop culture by the collective lapels and shaken them so much quite like this HBO series, which saw Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey playing cops investigating a freaky, ritualistic murder. Since the second season of the show will feature a brand new cast and storyline, Weekend Update invited Harrelson and McConaughey to chat about their experience filming season one and to offer advice for everyone joining the show for season two.
