Read more about all three below.

watchmen tv show

Adapting Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ bold and brilliant Watchmen is a fool’s errand. And Damon Lindelof, who is spearheading a television version of the iconic comic for HBO, knows this.

In a new letter, the divisive writer and producer has revealed that his take on the material will not be a direct adaptation of the comic. Nor will it be a direct sequel, even though it will take place in the same world.

And you know what? Good.

Rinko Kikuchi westworld

This week’s episode of Westworld, “Akane no Mai,” finally walked us into Shogun World, a sister park set in Japan’s Edo period. As different as the costumes, culture, and scenery are, viewers looking forward to the introduction of a brave new world, unlike anything we had seen on the show before, may have been slightly underwhelmed by some of the deliberately samey aspects of Shogun World. As our own Chris Evangelista put it in his review: “Shogun World may not be all it’s cracked up to be.”

The park has noticeable similarities to Westworld and there are two very good reasons for that. To talk about the similarities and how they fit both the story Westworld is trying to tell and its cinematic influences, we’ll need to venture into spoiler territory for Westworld, season 2, episode 5.

So unsheathe you samurai swords and let’s charge right in like a band of ronin show-watchers in the age of Peak TV.

In some people’s minds, ThunderCats, a cartoon about catlike humanoid aliens with swords, is as sacrosanct as Michelangelo’s painting on the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Now, a new ThunderCats series, ThunderCats Roar, is on the way and some people are very, very Mad Online™.

Tina Fey Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend brought the 43rd season of Saturday Night Live to a close with beloved cast member Tina Fey returning to host the finale. Whenever a cast member comes back as host for the season finale, then we’re usually in store for a ton of cameos from former cast members coming to play around on the show. But last night’s finale brought so much more than that.

When Tina Fey hosted Saturday Night Live last night, she brought quite the array of celebrity cameos, making for one of the most star-studded monologues I’ve seen in awhile. It wasn’t just former cast members coming back either, but there were a handful of big name stars appearing out of nowhere. And the monologue wasn’t the only place where cameos happened in this solid but not great season finale. Read More »
