good omens review

The road to a good screen adaptation of a beloved book is paved with good intentions, but often littered with bad executions. But if a show were made of pure good intentions, it would be Amazon’s Good Omens, which is a show eager — even desperate — to do justice to its source material. And thanks to the delightfully absurd performances by stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen and an irreverent Monty Python-inspired touch from director Douglas Mackinnon, it just about succeeds.

When you think of Armaggedon, the first thought is of death, destruction, and the sinister Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. And while all of those are present in Good Omens, Amazon’s upcoming fantasy-comedy series based on the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett novel of the same name is going to introduce all of those things with a twinkle in its eye. That’s including the Antichrist at the center of this whole end-of-the-earth thing, who happens to be an angelic-looking 11-year-old boy who only dreams of spaceships and hell.

Jessica Jones season 3 cast

When the final season of Jessica Jones drops on Netflix this year, don’t expect to see David Tennant‘s infamous Kilgrave. Technically, Kilgrave was killed at the end of season 1, but the character returned in hallucinatory form to mess with Jessica’s mind in season 2.

mary queen of scots review

The era of the progressive period piece is surprisingly tedious.

Led by two powerhouse performers and backed by a radically diverse cast, Mary Queen of Scots seems to promise the evolution of the period piece — one anchored around two fascinating women ahead of their time and not limited by the crusty perceptions of stuffy historical dramas. But despite the sensational turns by Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie as dueling female rulers, Mary Queen of Scots doesn’t turn out to be a revolutionary historical drama as much as it ends up a failed coup.

The 13 Best Episodes of Modern ‘Doctor Who’

best doctor who episodes

As we near the debut of Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor, what better time to rank the 13 best episodes of the Doctor Who revival? It’s been a long road up until the BBC sci-fi series finally cast its first female Doctor, and it’s a journey that has been filled with silly lows and soaring highs (and we have a handy guide just to navigate them). But today we’re only here to list the highs.

Doctor Who is a lot of things: a sci-fi saga, tales from alien crypts, a character drama, a campy children’s show, a fantastical fairy tale. And in its best episodes, it excels at all of them. So, while we count down the days until Whittaker falls from the skies and into our TV sets, let us count down the 13 best Doctor Who episodes of the revival series.
