Lucifer

Yet another part of the DC universe is coming to the small screen. Fox has officially given a pilot order to Lucifer, based on the DC Comics character created by Neil Gaiman. Len Wiseman is directing and will produce with Jerry Bruckheimer.

Worth noting is that the premise of the series has been tweaked since the last time we reported on this project. The Devil will now work in law enforcement. Which might be a commentary on the current state of American law enforcement, but is more likely just a concession to the enduring popularity of crime dramas. Get all the details on the Lucifer pilot after the jump.  Read More »

Mad Men Season 7 garden party - Don and Peggy (header)

This spring marks the end of an era. For the characters of Mad Men, that era is the tumultuous 1960s; for viewers of Mad Men, it’s the show’s seven-season run as one of the finest dramas on television.

AMC split the last season of Mad Men into two parts, Breaking Bad-style, so that the first half aired last year while the second is scheduled to kick off in April.

New Wayward Pines trailer

M. Night Shyamalan produces the show Wayward Pines, based on the novel Pines by Blake Crouch, and the show really looks like some bizarre combination of Twin Peaks and The Prisoner. I’ve made that comparison before, but this new Wayward Pines trailer really hammers it home. Matt Dillon is a Secret Service agent investigating the disappearance of two other agents, when he finds himself trapped in a small town that seems friendly enough, but is actually far more sinister than its outward appearance suggests. Check out the new trailer below. Read More »

Simpsons executive producer Al Jean says this isn’t true. He would know, but no matter. A Reddit user has come up with a wild theory that attempts to explain why The Simpsons have never aged in 20-plus years. And even if it’s false, it’s an interesting, well-researched attempt to put a bow on a series that’s never been about wrapping things up.

Basically the idea is that Homer has been in a coma for twenty years. Read more details on this Simpsons fan theory below. Read More »

The Man in the High Castle series

The pilot for Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle deviated in several major respects from Philip K.

Dreadstar TV series

Jim Starlin may not be a household name, but some of his major creations are becoming well-known to many audiences thanks to Marvel Studios.
