game of thrones episode leaked

The internet is dark and full of spoilers — because the second Game of Thrones episode in two weeks has leaked online. But don’t worry, it’s not from trollish hackers who want to ruin whatever bombshells Game of Thrones‘ sixth episode has waiting for us. It was an accident.

The unaired sixth episode of Game of Thrones‘ seventh season, “Death is the Enemy,” was accidentally aired by HBO Nordic in Spain for an hour before it was removed. But that was enough time for the episode to make its way to file-sharing sites and Reddit — from which it will inevitably spread like wildfire.

Star Trek Discovery Season 2

It feels like we’ve been writing about Star Trek: Discovery for eons already, but the new series still hasn’t premiered yet and doesn’t debut until late next month. But the fact that we haven’t seen an episode yet won’t stop anyone from thinking about where the show could go in its second season, and executive producer and co-creator Alex Kurtzman has revealed in a new interview that Star Trek Discovery season 2 will include ramifications from a Klingon War that will take place over the course of season 1.

michael sheen and david tennant cast in good omens

The Apocalypse is looking pretty good right now.

Michael Sheen and David Tennant have been cast in the Amazon TV series Good Omens, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s whimsical, and very British, apocalyptic comedy. It’s some inspired casting that bodes well for the adaptation of another Gaiman work, who is on a roll right now after American Gods. A good omen for the show, you might say.

DuckTales Sneak Peek

Two days ago, DuckTales returned with an all new style and cast on Disney XD. Season one of the 2-D animated series is 21 half-hour episodes and two hour-long specials. Before the show even premiered, Disney ordered a season two. They’re clearly confident in the reboot. If they weren’t, then maybe they wouldn’t have released the first episode of the revival online.

Below, watch the hour-long DuckTales pilot.

game of thrones eastwatch review 8

Last night’s Game of Thrones was a “breather” episode, but it was also a belter, bringing unlikely characters together for a death-defying mission and threatening to drive wedges between others. One of those wedges involved a secret letter obtained by Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish – a letter that was found by Arya Stark and whose contents remain a mystery.

Well, sort of. This is the internet and this is Game of Thrones, so of course everyone figured out what the letter says and what’s going on here. In fact, those with long memories will know exactly what this note says. But if you’d rather discover what’s going on in the context of the story, consider this your spoiler warning.

Being a kid of the ’90s, I discovered Ducktales near the end of its popularity. Though my Disney Afternoon interest leaned more towards Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers or Gargoyles, it was always obvious that there was something special about Ducktales. With Indiana Jones style adventure and the humor of the McDuck crew, Scrooge and his family never lost their sparkle.

But since I didn’t really get to experience Ducktales in its heyday, I was excited to check out the new reboot on Disney XD. And with a promising cast (including Doctor Who‘s David Tennant as our favorite billionaire duck) and some very interesting character designs, this seemed like one very promising project.

Inhumans Featurette

We’re not getting a new Marvel Studios movie until Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters in November, but before then the comic book production company will try to capture fans’ attention with a new TV series on ABC that takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, albeit more tangentially than directly.

Marvel’s Inhumans focuses on a royal family of genetically super-powered individuals as they try to live in a world unsure of their abilities. When a military coup creates conflict within the royal family, some escape to Hawaii, where they may find the key keeping the planet safe. But a rift in the family creates, even more, conflict as a struggle for power emerges.

A new Inhumans featurette goes behind the scenes of the upcoming series, showing off some new footage, both in front of and behind the camera. Check it out below. Read More »

game of thrones eastwatch review 1

(In our coverage of Game of Thrones season 7, we’ll be examining each episode with one simple question in mind – which character is winning the game of thrones this week?)

After last week’s fireworks, Game of Thrones settled down just bit for “Eastwatch,” an hour dedicated to maneuvering all of the vital players into the right positions for another round of fireworks next week. But unlike other “table setting” episodes of past seasons, the unrelenting pace of season 7 applies to even the chapters where everyone is taking a breath.

Room 104 Samuel

(Each week, we’ll kick off discussion about Room 104 by answering one simple question: what’s the strangest thing in Room 104?)

If there’s one lesson to be learned from this week’s Room 104, it’s this: never go with a cult priest to a second location. In “The Knockandoo,” a fragile woman is hoping to leave this world for a higher plane of existence – and she’s paid a questionable “practitioner” to help get her there. Things don’t go exactly according to plan, thanks to a surprise appearance by the titular Knockandoo.
