game of thrones final season

The upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones will consist of only seven episodes, which is a bit of a disappointment after six years of 10-episode seasons that already felt all-too-brief. And now, courtesy of the series creators and showrunners, we know that the eighth and final season will be even shorter.

joss whedon binge-watching

Buffy the Vampire Slayer turned 20 last week, leading the entire internet to reminisce about the greatest television show of all time (the cold hard truth) and what it meant and still means to them (a great deal). In the midst of it all, series creator Joss Whedon, who has since graduated into the world of big-budget moviemaking with the likes of The Avengers, spoke about the series…which meant that he spoke about television in general…which meant that he talked about the shifting TV landscape spurred on by Netflix and binge-watching.

And he has concerns about it all. And he’s right to have concerns.

ducktales teaser featuring donal duck

Earlier this month, Disney unveiled the first trailer for the DuckTales reboot featuring the voices of David Tennant (Scrooge), Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan (Huey, Dewey & Louie), Beck Bennett (Launchpad McQuack), and Kate Micucci (Webby Vanderquack). While the new voices were a bit off-putting for a fan of the original series, I was actually blown away by the retro design style of this traditional 2D animated show.

Now Disney XD has released another short DuckTales teaser focusing on Donald Duck (voiced by Tony Anselmo in the new series) and it just looks fantastic. Watch the Ducktales teaser, entitled “Donald Duck’s Tales,” below!

Power Rangers Marathon

All the hype this week will belong to Beauty and the Beast, which is on track to be a box office giant. But after that, it will be time for the Power Rangers to show what they’re made of for their first big screen adventure in 20 years.

Leading up to the release of Power Rangers, there will be a massive 10-day marathon of every single episode of every iteration of Power Rangers ever released. That’s 831 episodes spanning 23 seasons, a lot of cheesy monster costumes, explosions and colorful suits. Find out when and where you can catch the Power Rangers marathon after the jump. Read More »

Scarlett Johansson Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend, Scarlett Johansson hosted Saturday Night Live, which allowed her to join the prestigious Five Timers Club, a rare honor for hosts of the iconic late night sketch series. Last night’s episode proved why Scarlett Johansson has joined the exclusive club, as she can throw herself into a goofy character, but also has no problem being an anchor in a sketch as the straight-woman, delivering the dialogue that doesn’t have the punchlines. Overall, this was a pretty good episode.

Below, we run through the best and worst sketches of the Scarlett Johansson hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »

The Leftovers Season 3 Premiere Date

Yesterday, Game of Thrones revealed the premiere date of their next season in quite the ridiculous way, even for the internet. They set up a huge block of ice and were slowly melting it away with giant flames, but it didn’t quite go off as planned. The live stream showing the block of ice stopped abruptly and fans had to find out the premiere date from a teaser video that arrived shortly thereafter.

Meanwhile, one of HBO’s other returning shows didn’t have quite the same budget to create such pomp and circumstance. The Leftovers is returning for its final season this year, and while we already knew that the series was coming back in April, executive producer and writer Damon Lindelof wanted to do something special in honor of Game of Thrones‘ big announcement.

Let’s check out the spectacular confirmation of The Leftovers season 3 premiere date! Read More »

mr. robot season three

Last year season two of Mr. Robot appeared more divisive than season one. After the popularity of its first season, though, it’s natural Sam Esmail‘s USA drama wouldn’t match everyone’s expectations. Plus, the twist midway through season two was destined to polarize. Whether the reveal ended up working or not can be debated, but it was still one of the many bold choices made with season two.

USA Network has announced a Mr. Robot season 3 premiere date: the series returns for its third season this October. Below, learn more about Mr. Robot season 3 and who just got promoted to a series regular.

Boomerang Subscription Service

When I was growing up in the ’90s, channels like Nickelodeon, The Disney Channel, and Cartoon Network were gaining popularity and figuring out exactly what they wanted to be in the rapidly expanding world of cable television. The result was plenty of experimental cartoons that maybe shouldn’t have been expressly for kids (such as Ren & Stimpy and Johnny Bravo), but that also meant that there were classic cartoons from decades past that were finding traction with the children of parents who grown up with them a generation before.

In recent years, as each of those networks has expanded their reach of original programming, going so far as to have spin-off channels like Teen Nick and Disney XD. Sadly, this means classic cartoons have gone by the wayside, and there hasn’t been an easy way for those who want to watch shows like Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, The Flintstones and more. But that’s about to change with the new Boomerang subscription service.
