Forget Satan, Have You Met Evil's Most Evil Character?

Forget Satan, Have You Met Evil's Most Evil Character?

CBS’s Evil has become one of this fall’s most pleasant surprises—if you can apply “pleasant” to a show that examines the very worst of humanity: serial killers, child murderers, racist doctors, people who produce fake “ghost hunter” TV shows, etc. But the worst of the worst prize goes to one character: Leland Townsend.

Tweedy and bespectacled, Leland (played by Michael Emerson, who is...

Anson Mount and Ethan Peck Look Back on Their Star Trek Tour of Duty

Anson Mount and Ethan Peck Look Back on Their Star Trek Tour of Duty

Star Trek: Discovery had a lot to prove going into its second season—especially in its bold move to cast new faces as two very familiar heroes from Trek’s past and bring them into Discovery’s morally murky take on a pre-original series Federation. But Discovery’s second season not only took on those high expectations, in many ways it surpassed them.

Of all the things well-received about...

Captain Janeway's Hometown Could Get a Star Trek Memorial, With Your Help

Certainly would beat a Millennium Gate, wouldn’t it?

Although the esteemed captain of the U.S.S. Voyager, tireless scientist and lover of dramatic off-camera stares , won’t actually be born for a few centuries yet in the Star Trek timeline, CBS has announced a new collaboration that hopes to honor Kathryn Janeway with her very own monument in her hometown of Bloomington, Indiana.

Happy 25th Birthday to Star Trek's Defiant, the Lean, Mean Starship of Deep Space Nine

Happy 25th Birthday to Star Trek's Defiant, the Lean, Mean Starship of Deep Space Nine

Even at its most subversive, Star Trek still has to have a few certain kernels of established tropes to really feel like Star Trek—one of those being a ship for our captain and crew to boldly go in. Deep Space Nine, of course, naturally subverted both of these things, giving us a space station and a commander. But even when it could not resist, it still defied expectation with the Defiant.

Why

Why

Forget The Office, Friends, or even goddamn Seinfeld. Apparently, the highest-valued television show in the history of the world is a humorless screed about a bunch of neeeeeeeeeeerds. CBS’ The Big Bang Theory is back with what might be the most-expensive streaming deal of all time. Just when I thought I was free .

According to The Hollywood Reporter, WarnerMedia’s streaming service, HBO Max,...

The Age of Media Corporation Mega-Mergers Is Robbing Us of Bolder, Fresher Storytelling

Disney isn’t just the first studio to have five pictures cross a billion dollars at the box office in a single year and it isn’t just the biggest film studio right now. It’s the biggest film studio in the history of Hollywood. While investors are likely very pleased with this fact, the company’s series of monster mergers has set off a chain effect with other studios doing their own monster...

The Star Trek Movies You Don't Like Are Now Owned by the Same Company That Owns the Trek Movies You Only Mostly Dislike

Allow us to introduce you to the latest inconsequential benefit of our megacorp dystopia. I have to admit it, as far as incredibly minor bright sides to the horrifying rise of media studio megamergers go, “At least CBS owns the Kelvin Timeline Star Trek movies” is not as immediately exciting as “At least the X-Men can appear in the MCU .”

After years of speculation and attempts, Deadline...

Robert Picardo Says He Could Sign Up for Star Trek: Picard's Second Season

It gives me all the joy in the world that Star Trek: Picard is starting to feel like Star Trek: Voyager 2: Seven and the Doctor’s Electric Boogaloo.

Watch the Birth of Galaxies in an Exclusive Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 VFX Reel

Season two of Star Trek: Discovery embraced the more fun side of the franchise, but still kept things action-packed and intense. That means a lot of cool explosions, larger-than-life galaxies, and scores of flying ships. This exclusive behind-the-scenes video shows how VFX studio Pixomondo created some of the biggest moments from the sophomore season of Discovery.
