Daredevil Season 2 fight scene

We’ll be running a full review of Daredevil season 2 very soon, but here’s the CliffNotes version for those who are curious: it’s very good and a significant improvement over the first season in many key areas. It also has its fair share of flaws (and odd deviations from the Marvel canon), but it’s easy to see the path ahead for the series. There actually seems to be a real plan this time around. And it’s paced relatively well!

One area where the new season consistently matches the first season is the action. This new batch of episodes has no shortage of broken limbs, smashed faces, battered torsos. Matt Murdock walks away from every fight bleeding and bruised and his opponents rarely walk away at all. For fans of well-choreographed fisticuffs, it’s good stuff. And of course, the best action scene from the season has made its way online so you can revisit it again.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Crossover

If you’re a child of the ’80s and ’90s, you undoubtedly know the theme song to the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. It was a staple of Saturday morning cartoons, and for some fans, it’s the pinnacle of heroes in a half-shell entertainment. There’s been a lot of nostalgia for the old animated series on shirts, lunch boxes, hats and even new pricey action figures. And now they’re coming back to television, but in a slightly different form.

Nickelodeon’s TMNT animated series will be getting a visit from the retro animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a new episode that crosses dimensions. What’s really cool is that the episode will also bring back the the original voice actors from the old series. Get more details on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover after the jump.

New Powerpuff Girls

Sugar. Spice. And everything nice. These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect little girl. But Professor Utonium accidentally added an extra ingredient to the concoction: CHEMICAL X. Thus The Powerpuff Girls were… reborn!

You can have your Fuller House and your Gilmore Girls revival, but personally, I’m way more excited about seeing the return of the pint-sized, animated superheroes known as the Powerpuff Girls. The animated series gets a bit of a reboot this April on Cartoon Network, but when you see the first footage from this new Powerpuff Girls series, you’ll see that not much has changed, and that’s a good thing.

The Magicians pilot

Syfy gave us an early Christmas present last month, in the form of an early broadcast of the pilot episode for its new fantasy series The Magicians. But if you missed it the first time around — or if you did catch it, but like its fantasy-obsessed protagonist are eager to dive back into a world of magic and mayhem — you’re in luck. The network has put the entire first episode online for free, several days ahead of its (second) on-air premiere.

Based on the novels by Lev GrossmanThe Magicians is sort of a grown-up Harry Potter. Quentin (Jason Ralph) is an unhappy young man at the end of his college years. He discovers that the kind of magic he’s read about in children’s fantasy novels is real, and enrolls in a magical graduate school called Brakebills. But this exciting new world isn’t exactly what he imagined. Watch the full The Magicians pilot after the jump. Read More »

the walking dead negan

Last night’s The Walking Dead midseason finale was, in typical The Walking Dead fashion, a big ol’ shrug to an otherwise fairly strong batch of episodes. Loyal viewers of the show should be familiar with this by now – no series on television manages to feature so many peaks and valleys in such close proximity.

It’s telling that the most interesting aspect of the episode wasn’t even a proper part of the episode, but rather a “prologue” for the second half of the season, which will air early next year. This brief clip, presumably from an upcoming episode, features the first onscreen mention of the Negan, the villain who will loom over the second half of season 6, make his grand debut in the finale, and then become a regular character in season 7. You can check out the Walking Dead Negan clip for yourself after the jump.

BTTF Kimmel reunion

Jimmy Kimmel may have had the best Back to the Future Day of any of us. Because his, you see, ended with an actual visit from Marty McFly and Doc Brown. The pair dropped by the Brooklyn stage of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in their DeLorean last night, and Jimmy got to be the one to break all the bad news about 2015 to them: no, we don’t have flying cards, hoverboards, or peace in the Middle East, and Johnny Carson has long since passed away.

On the bright side, though, we do have smartphones, selfies, and cronuts. And real Nike Mag shoes with power laces, as demonstrated by one Michael J. Fox (“Teen Wolf!” Marty exclaims excitedly). See the Back to the Future Jimmy Kimmel show after the jump.  Read More »

fear the walking dead season 2

The first season may have literally just ended last night, but Fear the Walking Dead season 2 already has a teaser. Well, a teaser of sorts. AMC hasn’t shot a single frame of the Walking Dead spinoff’s sophomore season, but they can gather cast and crew together, place them in front of a camera, and let them speculate about all the horrifying, flesh-tearing mayhem that will occur next year. Non-spoiler alert: things are going to get very, very bad for everyone involved.

To see just how bad, watch the Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 first look after the jump.

BB-8 Sounds

Even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn’t out until December 18th, some fans have already decided that their new favorite character is the adorable little ball droid known as BB-8. The character debuted in the first teaser for the film, rolling across a desert service, its little motor whirring as it moved as quick as it could. However, we’ve yet to here what the little droid actually sounds like.

A new commercial for Star Wars LEGO sets for The Force Awakens features some quick animation specifically one part with the little droid running from Kylo Ren and some First Order Stormtroopers where we get to hear what BB-8 sounds like for the first time. Check it out below! Read More »
