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 Grossman, The 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 »

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.

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 »
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.

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.
