Every Star Trek show beyond the original series tends to have a shaky first season, and Star Trek: Discovery was no exception. But the CBS All Access series showed promise – promise that could very well be fulfilled by season 2.
The first footage from season 2 premiered at the show’s Comic-Con panel (watch it below), but that wasn’t the only thing worth noting. The show’s cast and producers were also on hand and they revealed some nifty tidbits about what to expect, including the return of not one, but two characters from Trek canon.

For the past decade, Noah Wyle has been The Librarian. That’s a character who featured in three made-for-TV movies following an adventurer traveling the world looking for artifacts. He’s very much inspired by Indiana Jones. Now, that character will play a role in a regular TV series that expands the movie’s mythology.
The show is called The Librarians, and it follows a secret society that protects the world from mysterious happenings. Wyle will appear sporadically as his character, but he’s since passed the mantle of Librarian to a new group of characters, including one played by Rebecca Romijn. Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Stargate) is one of the executive producers and will direct a few episodes of the series, which debuts December 7.
Below, read more about the show and watch The Librarians trailer. Read More »
There’s absolutely no need to touch Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction. Built around an Academy Award winning screenplay, the film is pretty much perfect from beginning to end. It teems with exquisite detail as performances and dialogue tell interweaving stories of crime and craziness. A reinforcement of that absolute brilliance was the main thing I took out of the latest Film Independent at LACMA Live Read, which took place February 20 in Los Angeles. Director Evan Goldberg (This is the End) subbed for Jason Reitman and assembled an eclectic, star-studded cast to read Tarantino’s masterwork. It was a two and a half hour celebration of Pulp Fiction‘s perfection.
While no one could ever replace the iconic cast of John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman and so many others, stars like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Lizzie Caplan laughed, imitated and sometimes stumbled through the script with excitement and reverence. Along the way, a few Easter Eggs were uncovered, alternate interpretations attempted and much fun was had. Read about the live read below. Read More »
