Supergirl origin story

There can be no new superhero show on TV without at least a hint of an origin story, and an origin story for Supergirl means that poor ol’ Krypton has to suffer destruction again. So this new Supergirl international promo begins with Krypton blown to bits, but in showing those early days, it also features an explanation of the young Kryptonian’s purpose. That purpose is pretty neat, too: she’s meant to safeguard her brother as he is sent to Earth, as it turns out.

That makes some of the “hapless girl in the city” stuff from the six-minute preview seem even more wonky and out of place, but also gives the show a neat premise that will hopefully take hold as the show goes on. Check out the new promo below. Read More »

Scream TV series opening scene

MTV has a fine line to walk with its Scream TV series. Recreate the original films too closely, and they’ll be accused of laziness; stray too far from them, and they’ll alienate purists. We’ll have to wait and see how the series fares as a whole, but as revealed in a new Scream clip, the first eight minutes try their best to put their own spin on one of the movies’ classic scenes.

Bella Thorne plays Nina, a rich, popular mean girl whose evening goes horribly awry in a way that’ll feel very familiar to fans of the first Scream. Watch the Scream TV series opening scene after the jump.  Read More »

Houdini & Doyle cast

The friendship and animosity between escapist Harry Houdini and Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is the stuff of modern legend. Houdini, the talented performer who aggressively campaigned against the junk mysticism of the Spiritualism movement that became particularly popular in the teens and ’20s, was at one point fast friends with Doyle, an initial skeptic who became a committed Spiritualist.

Now Fox is making a show that uses the relationship between the two men as the spine of a period procedural, and we now know the key players in the Houdini & Doyle cast. Read More »
