X-Men cartoon theme song

It’s been 22 years since X-Men (aka X-Men: The Animated Series) went off the air, but arguably the most famous aspect of that show – its stellar opening theme song – is now at the center of a lawsuit that was filed against companies like Marvel, Apple, Amazon, The Walt Disney Company, and more. The suit claims that the iconic instrumental opening rips off the theme song from a 1980s Hungarian TV show called Linda, and you can listen to both songs below to see if you think he has a point.

The Simpsons Showrunner Interview season 31

The Simpsons just began its landmark 31st season on Fox, who has renewed the show through at least season 32. The Simpsons is now working under the Disney banner thanks to the merger with 20th Century Fox, and the back catalog of episodes will appear on the Disney+ streaming service.

The Simpsons family is still mourning the loss of Russi Taylor, who provided the voice of Martin Prince. When /Film ran into showrunner Al Jean at the Summer Television Critics Association party, he said the show intends to continue with Martin Prince as a character. When other voice actors, like Phil Hartman and Marcia Wallace passed away, they retired their characters.

Season 31 of The Simpsons airs Sunday nights on Fox.

The Orville Season 3 update

Seth MacFarlane announced at Comic-Con that the third season of his Fox sci-fi series The Orville would premiere on Hulu. The first season premiered on Fox in the 2017 season. The second season premiered December 30, quite late in the fall schedule. MacFarlane realized he could not deliver a third season until 2020, making it difficult to air linearly on broadcast. 

The Orville stars MacFarlane and includes many visual and makeup effects with its aliens and other planets. Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier confirmed it was simply not feasible to continue on a broadcast schedule.

It’s been nearly two years since Adam West passed away.

gotham series finale trailer

After five long, wacky years, Gotham is ending. And with its bombastic upcoming series finale, we will see the beginning of Batman and the end of the weird, wild madness that is the Jim Gordon-centric Fox series.

A show that was meant to be a serious, crime procedural take on the Caped Crusader, Gotham ended up becoming the most ludicrous of all the Batman screen adaptations, and that’s saying something when you have Adam West fighting sharks with…bat shark repellant. But there’s something admirable about Gotham and how it stuck to its guns and gave up all pretense of being a serious show. And now it will all pay off in the series finale, which shows us how Batman finally begins. Watch the Gotham series finale trailer below.
