Well, we've really done it now. We let 'Girl Meets World' set up shop on the Disney Channel, shared faint chuckles at the sight of John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier schilling yogurt, and continually focused on a solitary Olsen sibling. Nevermind you which, as ABC TV classic 'Full House' may be moving forward with a rebooted series, original cast intact, and all because we couldn't just CUT-IT-OUT.
And lo, HBO’s ‘True Blood’ hath not gone gently into that good night, but rather stumbled through its series finale in a shower of goopy blood that made up its final installment “Thank You.” Fans of the 7-year HBO drama proved understandably divided by Sookie Stackhouse’s ultimate end, but what does showrunner Brian Buckner have to say of the finale’s major twists? Who was that guy at the head of the table? Why wasn’t Eric around more? All these answers and more, straight from the ‘True Blood’ series finale!
'The Simpsons' marathon continues for its sixth straight day on FXX today amidst a growing chorus of complaints about the network’s decision to alter the format of every episode from the show’s first nineteen seasons. As detailed in Max O’Connell’s recent article on Indiewire, FXX has cropped and stretched pre-HD 'Simpsons' installments from their original 4:3 aspect ratio (the height and width of our old standard-definition TVs) to 16:9 (the dimensions of our new HD sets), apparently in order to make sure that no one suffers through old television episodes with black bars on the sides of the image.

Hello, welcome back to Thanos Thoughts. I am Thanos.
The people of Earth like awarding themselves with trophies. The last two nights, I’ve watched trophy after trophy be handed out to lots of humans. One of these trophies kind of looked like me and the other one didn’t look anything like me. I was hoping someone would award me an Infinity Stone. lol.
The 'Pyramid' trailer knows what horror movies as old as the original 'Mummy' knew: ancient Egypt is really cool and really scary. After all, there are few things that lend themselves to scary cinema better than mummies and tombs and ancient curses, and those just come with the territory when you set a film in and around the pyramids.
Michael Cera is a busy guy, but while the indie mainstay and 'Arrested Development' star hit up the 'Late Show' last night to chat about his literal theatrics, host David Letterman was way more interested in extracurricular activities, like the actor's new German girlfriend and his trip to visit a giant basket.
Most people didn't love the way the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looked in their recent movie, what with the lips and noses and eyes. Little did those people know that it could've been worse. Much, much worse. Case in point: these new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' concept art sketches that are far more terrifying than anything in Michael Bay's reboot.
It's been some years since the internet gave a defiant push for 'Community' star Donald Glover to take the role of Marvel's iconic webhead, by which time the 'Spider-Man' franchise has since gone to Andrew Garfield and every villain imaginable.
