A New Study Reminds Us How Ridiculous Spoiler Culture Has Become

A New Study Reminds Us How Ridiculous Spoiler Culture Has Become

Not a day goes by without someone, somewhere on the internet, feeling the need to express how they’ve been personally harmed by a news site focused on genre entertainment that committed the unforgivable sin of running headlines that very vaguely allude to the interesting parts of films and shows. “I have been slain by spoilers,” these people cry. “Why have you slain me?”

To be fair, there are...

Grant Gustin Calls Arrow, Flash And Legends Of Tomorrow "All One Show"

Grant Gustin Calls <i>Arrow, Flash</i> And <i>Legends Of Tomorrow</i> "All One Show"

My one worry about The CW’s third DC TV show, Legends of Tomorrow, was that it would steal great characters like the Atom and Captain Cold away from their original series. Happily, Flash star Grant Gustin has revealed that some of Legends’ stars will be appearing on all three DC TV series.

In an interview with Buzzfeed, Flash star Grant Gustin explained that Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and his...

Weird New Sitcom Stars An Animated Barbarian And His Live-Action Family

Weird New Sitcom Stars An Animated Barbarian And His Live-Action Family

Yes, you read that right; Son of Zahn, a new TV series developed by Hollywood golden boys Phil Lord and Chris Miller (of The Lego Movie, 22 Jump Street and The Last Man on Earth fame), is on the way, starring a cartoon barbarian who returns to his living, breathing wife and kids after a decade terrorizing cartoon lands.

It’s a strange concept that would sound almost unbearably terrible —...

Last night’s Game of Thrones was a gamechanger for everyone involved , but it also gave fans a delightfully teasing glimpse at an infamous unseen location in Westeros: the Tower of Joy, the setting of one of the series’ most popular theories. Here’s a new video looking at how the show plans to use the Tower going...

Person Of Interest Shows What Happens When You Look A God In The Eye

<i>Person Of Interest</i> Shows What Happens When You Look A God In The Eye

Person of Interest's A.I. war seems to be heating up once again — and the above clip shows a chilling moment where this week's Number comes a little too close to the truth about Samaritan. Spoilers ahead...

Actually, the most interesting thing about this week's Person of Interest, "Search and Destroy," is that it seems to show Samaritan getting a bit nervous. And making mistakes. Samaritan is...

Ugh, Supernatural. You Really Didn't Have To Go There.

Ugh, <i>Supernatural</i>. You Really Didn't Have To Go There.

Don’t watch this video unless you’ve already seen this week’s episode of Supernatural, since it’s mega-spoilery. And somewhat upsetting, as well. Why did Supernatural have to go down this road? Just... ugh.

Spoilers ahead...

So there’s a running debate over whether Supernatural kills off more female characters than male ones, and it’s easy to get bogged down in statistics and...

It’s by punching Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) in the face. Hey, if Jonah Hex (Johnathon Schaech) delivering this justly deserved bit of frontier justice to the rogue Time Master doesn’t get you on board for this show, nothing will.

On a sliding scale between dark/gritty and wild/goofy, Legends of Tomorrow definitely...

Care to see (almost) all the heroes and villains of the CW’s third DC TV series, Legends of Tomorrow, together for the first time? Want the first look at Hawkgirl and Rory as time-traveler Rip Hunter? Want to finally learn who Caity Lotz is playing? I thought you might.

Astronaut Academy, a.k.a. 'Harry Potter in Space,' Gets Optioned for TV and Film

<i>Astronaut Academy</i>, a.k.a. '<i>Harry Potter</i> in Space,' Gets Optioned for TV and Film

“It’s Harry Potter in space,” says producer Vivek J. Tiwary and really, that’s all he needs to say. That short sentence is enough to get people interested in Astronaut Academy, a comic series by Dave Roman that Tiwary just optioned to make into both a TV show and movie.

Roman’s series tells the story of students training to be heroes at a school called the Astronaut Academy. When a threat the...

With One Episode Left, Fear the Walking Dead Still Struggles to Find Its Aim

With One Episode Left, <i>Fear the Walking Dead</i> Still Struggles to Find Its Aim

Miss Fear the Walking Dead this week? You didn’t miss much. There’s one episode left and despite that, the show remained as glacially paced as ever. Basically, each storyline inched forward a bit to a place where, in the finale, maybe things will finally happen. Or maybe they won’t.

Here’s the gist of episode five, titled “Cobalt.” Travis tagged along with some soldiers and forgot about the...

Claire Travels Back to the Future in the New <i>Outlander</i> Trailer

Outlander returns to Starz on April 9, and this full trailer (an extension of the teaser that dropped last month) offers some tantalizing hints on what time-traveler Claire’s going to be up to during season two—including getting pregnant in the past and reuniting with her (first) husband in the future.

HBO Is Finally Working on a Science Fiction Romantic Comedy

HBO Is Finally Working on a Science Fiction Romantic Comedy

Although HBO’s been gathering accolades for genre drama with Game of Thrones, next year could bring it into the realm of genre comedy, a niche that the premium network has left untouched. Until now.

According to USA Today, the network’s inked a deal with Greg Daniels (The Office, King of the Hill) to develop a romantic comedy about the “minutiae of daily existence in a sci-fi afterlife.”...

Gotham Releases Its Own Grindhouse-Style Trailer, Which Works Disturbingly Well

<i>Gotham</i> Releases Its Own Grindhouse-Style Trailer, Which Works Disturbingly Well

A complete run-down of my thoughts when watching this video: “A grindhouse-style trailer for Gotham? Okay.” “Wow, the person who made this did a great job.” “Man, it’s crazy how perfectly this Gotham footage works as an R-rated exploitation flick from the ‘70s.” “Wait a second. This is an official trailer?!”

Yes, Gotham itself released this trailer for itself, starring those bad...

The Completely Different Version Of Gotham We Could Have Had

The Completely Different Version Of Gotham We Could Have Had

Voices From Krypton has the treatment for a wholly different Gotham show, which was about to be pitched to Warner Bros., but the current Gotham was greenlit before they could do so. The failed project wasn't the prequeliest of prequels, like the show we have now, but instead took place concurrently with Batman roaming the streets. And that's not all that was different.

You can read the whole...

A Walking Dead Spin-Off Character Will Join The Regular Walking Dead

A <i>Walking Dead</i> Spin-Off Character Will Join The Regular <i>Walking Dead</i>

When The Walking Dead spin-off series was announced, the producers were adamant that it would feature all new survivors in a new situation, namely the earliest days of the zombie apocalypse. Apparently now they've realized it might be somewhat helpful to have a more direct tie-in between the old show and the new.

This is probably why The Nerdist is reporting that one of the characters from the...
