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.

Kurt Sutter’s FX biker opus ‘Sons of Anarchy‘ will rev its last within a few weeks time, but while the potential prequel cools its heels, work continues on Sutter’s medieval FX followup ‘The Bastard Executioner.’ And whatever Gemma Teller’s ultimate fate may be, we can expect to see Katey Sagal right beside her husband once more with a role in the new series.
A few weeks ago saw 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' delivering its highest-concept promos to date, launching the Paddy's Pub gang into orbit for our first look at season 10, but why wait until 2015 for any actual footage? See what horrible misadventures Charlie, Dennis, Dee, Mac and Frank get up to with our first season 10 clips, and some a-Peele-ing new guest stars along the way!
We seem to have officially hit our lull in this season of 'American Horror Story' -- every year there comes a point when the melodrama takes over for an episode or two, when the horror takes a backseat to the scenery chewing. This week Jessica Lange goes full-on Joan Crawford in her role of Elsa Mars, and that's not really a bad thing (hello 'Mommie Dearest'!), but the familial dynamics overtake the macabre wackiness and the end result is a bit tedious.
The sixth and final season of FX gunslinger drama 'Justified' will more than heat things up, as Raylan and Boyd might well burn down the entirety of Harlan County with their legendary rivalry. Ava Crowder might just let it happen too, judging by the latest fiery teaser trailer for the 2015 swan song of 'Justified.'
‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 7 roars out its 10th episode of the final year, “Faith and Despondency,” as Jax seeks revenge against Moses St. Claire for Bobby, and Abel's continued outbursts at school bring to light a long-feared truth.
Every season of television needs a central conflict around which it revolves, around which some other, smaller conflicts float, tethered to its orbit, but always drawn into the grand design. 'American Horror Story' is the obnoxious, rebellious teenage series. It doesn't play by these rules and conventions, sometimes to its detriment. Conflicts and villains are introduced and swept away; those players whom we think major are offed in the first few episodes, and big bads emerge and converge in seemingly senseless fashion. Who are the true villains of 'Freak Show'? It's a question that perhaps the show is still trying to answer.
‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 7 roars out its 9th episode of the final year, “What A Piece of Work is Man,” as Jax makes a bargain with August Marks for Bobby's life, while Unser and Jarry uncover surprising new details of Tara's murder, and SAMCRO loses yet another of its own.
FX's 'Archer' dropped the spy schtick from its previous season to shake things up with a little more 'Vice,' but there's nothing wrong with getting back to business, as evidenced by the first season 6 teaser trailer. Watch Sterling, Lana, Pam, Cyril, Ray, Krieger, Cheryl Carol and the rest get back to work at ISI...uh, spy stuff, in the first look at 'Archer''s new season in 2015!
The first few episodes of 'Freak Show' have largely placed the lesser-known supporting characters on the periphery, perhaps to the show's detriment, as the Curiosities in Fraulein Elsa's Cabinet appear to offer much of interest. The ghastly Edward Mordrake gets it, as does Elsa, on some level; if only the people of Jupiter, Florida would give them a chance, they would see it -- how compelling and relatable they truly are. Every bit as deserving at a chance in the spotlight as Kathy Bates' Ethel or Sarah Paulson's Dot and Bette. "Edward Mordrake, Part 2" begins by giving at least a couple of them a chance to shine. It's not much, but it's a step in the right direction.
