In these social media-friendly days, when anything with a Facebook page gets called a phenomenon, it may be tough to comprehend just how much cultural impact Twin Peaks had when it first hit the airwaves back in 1990. Safe to say it changed television by proving mainstream Us audiences can flock to something surreal and ambiguous. The televisual golden age in which we apparently now live wouldn’t glister so much without Twin Peaks laying the groundwork, planting the seeds for such adventurous fare as True Detective and Fargo. It may have looked, on the surface, like any other TV drama, all slick sets and photogenic performers, but it quickly peeled off this seductive, respectable veneer to reveal the darkness that lay beneath (a trick »

Just days after Stan Lee was quoted as stating that having Spider-Man, X-Men and The Fantastic Four as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was something that Marvel Studios “is very concerned about”, a flood of leaked emails from the Guardians of Peace hack into Sony arrived online, throwing up tonnes of details about the studio’s plans – or rather, lack of plans – for the wall-crawler. The biggest piece of news was the revelation that Marvel Studios tried unsuccessfully (for the time being, at least) to partner up with »

Twin Peaks, Season 1, Episode 7, “Realization Time”
Written by Harley Peyton
Directed by Caleb Deschanel
Aired May 17, 1990 on ABC
“What’s up, Doc? Just a few words before I go to sleep. I feel like I’m going to dream tonight. Big bad ones, you know? The kind you like. It’s easier talking into the recorder. I guess I feel I can say anything. All my secrets. The naked ones. I know you like those, Doc. I know you like me too. That’ll be my little secret, okay? Just like your coconut. Why is it so easy to make men like me? And I don’t even have to try very hard. Maybe, if it was harder…” — Laura Palmer
With the sheer breadth of stories being told on an average episode of Twin Peaks, it’s startling to take a step back and realize that each episode only covers a period of 24 hours. »

Warning: Spoilers for the midseason finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. follow…
Having teased the mysterious origin of Skye since the show’s premiere last year, last night’s midseason finale of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally revealed the true identity of Chloe Bennet’s character – and that of her father The Doctor, played by Kyle MacLachlan – as well as sewing the first seeds for the Inhumans movie in 2018.
In the episode, it was revealed that Skye is actually Daisy Johnson, a.k.a. Quake, the daughter of Calvin Zabo, better known as the supervillain Mister Hyde. In the comic books, Quake possesses seismic powers (the ability to induce earthquakes), and has served as a member of The Avengers and the Secret Warriors, as well as Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
As well as revealing Skye’s true identity, the episode also took the first steps into »

Skye? Daisy? Raina? Trip? The Obelisk? Has the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.mid-season finale left you with questions? James has the answers...
Warning: contains major spoilers for Agents Of Shield season 2.
Last night's Agents of Shield mid-season finale left us with a lot of new information, and not all of it is going to make sense to people who haven't read a lot of Marvel comics. If you watched the episode and felt like there's more going on than you could grasp, we've answered the important questions for you. Feel free to ask anything we missed!
What character is Kyle Maclachlan playing?
Previously referred to as "The Doctor", the mid-season finale gave Maclachlan's character a name. Or rather part of one. He called himself "Cal".
Add that to what we know about him already – the fact that he's a killer, the fact that he struggled to keep his anger in check, »
Are you ready to experience all the emotions? The first full trailer (more like a clip) for Disney-Pixar's "Inside Out" has arrived, and in it we witness rainbow-colored personifications of human feelings as they battle for control of a family dinner conversation. Can you "spot" the celebrity voices here? Amy Poehler's immediately jumped out at me, but you might also recognize the vocal talents of Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Kyle MacLachlan and Diane Lane on display. Directed by Pete Docter ("Monsters Inc.," "Up"), "Inside Out" centers on a young girl (Kaitlyn Dias) as she experiences the emotional upheaval that comes with a move to San Francisco. Check out the trailer below. "Inside Out" is slated for release on June 19, 2015. »

Earlier this year we shared the teaser trailer for Pixar’s latest original outing, Inside Out, an animated family comedy in which emotions become personified inside a little girl. The film’s latest full trailer gives a bigger taste of just how these personality traits operate within a typical family dynamic, Star Trek-style mission control and all.
USA Today also spoke with Writer-Director Pete Docter about the film’s plot and inspiration:
Life for Riley is made all the more difficult since Dad has moved the family from theMidwest to work on a start-up company in San Francisco. Meanwhile, upbeat and hip Mom is the emotional center of the family.
“These guys are the pillars on both sides,” says Docter. “They are pivotal parts, knowing how joyful this kid Riley used to be and the young woman she’s changing into.”
So while Riley’s mind is full of »

Pixar has released a new look at the little voices inside our heads with a full trailer for its upcoming flick “Inside Out.”
The movie, premiering on June 19, 2015, follows five emotions, Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith), as they help to advise 11-year-old Riley through her every day life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust, conflict ensues in Headquarters, where the emotions reside, as Joy tries to keep things positive despite the emotions disagreeing on how to best navigate a new city, house and school.
The new trailer offers the first look at Riley’s (Kaitlyn Dias) parents, voiced by Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan, who have their own set of emotions. Mom’s taking up a “The View”-like setup and Dad’s stern with mustaches.

As Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D reached its midseason finale point, I found myself comparing this season with the last at their respective midway points. I think, in spite of its now far lower viewer ratings, this season has taken the show forward leaps and bounds. It feels as if there is so much more purpose to this season than anything that happened before The Winter Soldier tie in. I think this episode did the best of any this season to simultaneously answer a few lingering questions, whilst also posing even more so that I want to see where they go next.
The episode picks up where, 9 left us with our Agents posed to go into the underground city and trying to reach it before Hydra can release the weapon within. With Skye and Raina »

A new trailer for Disney Pixar's Inside Out has been released.
The film centres around the changes taking place externally and internally in the life of 11-year-old Riley (Kaitlyn Dias).
Inside Out will be released in the Us on June 19, 2015, and in the UK on July 24.
The short film Lava will play to audiences before showings of the movie. »
Just two days after it was revealed that Kyle MacLachlan and Diane Lane are voicing the parents in Disney Pixar's Inside Out, two trailers have debuted from this animated comedy. While the footage is practically the same in both, there is one subtle difference. In the domestic trailer, the "emotions" inside the father's head aren't paying attention to the mother, since they are busy watching a hockey game, but the international version shows them watching a soccer game. Regardless, both trailers give fans a unique glimpse inside the minds of young Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) and her parents.
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling »
Well, now we know what Kyle MacLachlan and Diane Lane were announced as the parents in Pixar Animation's next film Inside Out. The full trailer for next year's summer release has just arrived and shows them trying to interact with their 11-year old daughter Riley, each with the help of their own emotions, which each look similar to those seen inside Riley's mind, but with the attributes of the person they control (like a mustache or glasses). We didn't anticipate seeing the emotions of everyone in this fashion, and this just gets me even more excited for this movie with the voices of Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling and Phyllis Smith playing the emotions Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust & Sadness. Watch now! Here's the new full trailer for Pixar Animation's Inside Out, originally from Apple: You can still watch the first teaser trailer for Pixar Animation's Inside Out right here. »

Pixar has released the first full-length trailer for Inside Out. From director Pete Docter (Up, Monsters, Inc.), the film explores the inner world of an 11-year-old girl, Riley Anderson (Kaitlyn Dias), where the personifications of her emotions run the show. When Riley is uprooted from her home in the Midwest so her father can take a new job in San Francisco, Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Joy (Amy Poehler) try to help her cope with the sudden change. This trailer is a fantastic introduction to the world of the film, as we see how the emotions inside Riley and both of her parents react to tense situation around the dinner table. This really feels like the kind of inspired, unique, and funny filmmaking that we came to expect from the folks at Pixar before their run of somewhat disappointing releases, and I'm »

Yesterday we learned that Avengers: Age of Ultron would have a big impact on where the story goes for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. We don't know in what way it will affect the series, but it's going to happen. It looks like there's a lot of stuff going on in S.H.I.E.L.D., and apparently it's all leading up to what happens in Phase 3 of Marvel's cinematic universe.
Executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen recently did an interview with Marvel.com. During the interview they talked about the Inhumans element being included, which will lead to Phase 3.
(Spoilers directly below for anyone who did not watch the mid-season finale last night)
It was revealed that Skye (Chloe Bennet) is actually Daisy Johnson, also known as a character named Quake from the comics. It was also revealed that her father (Kyle MacLachlan) is really Calvin Zabo, who you might know as Mister Hyde. »

“The Flash” and “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” have been operating on parallel tracks – not merely adjacent to each other on Tuesday nights, but each building toward and culminating with a “winter finale” that answered questions and resolved plots, while still leaving plenty dangling.
Yet while both shows have their merits – reinforcing this as a “Best of times” for comic-book fans, even on TV, historically a source of wince-inducing corner-cutting and camp – the CW’s new DC Comics drama is clearly exhibiting more power, while ABC-Marvel-Disney’s sophomore hour has yet to completely escape the feeling that it’s spinning its wheels.
In what was almost certainly the best episode of “The Flash” thus far (and Spoiler Alert, for both shows, if you haven’t watched), the series formally introduced the yellow-suited “Reverse Flash” (or Professor Zoom, if you prefer); pitted him in a rollicking fight with the Flash (Grant Gustin »

A review of tonight's "Marvel's Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as I remind you not to die... As the last episode of "Shield" we're going to see for several months (with "Agent Carter" taking over the timeslot starting January 6), and as the culmination of this half-season's stories about Whitehall, Skye's dad, Ward, the obelisk, the hidden city, etc., "What They Become" had a whole lot to squeeze into a short amount of time. For the most part, it succeeded, though there were parts of the climax that felt rushed, as we dealt with various characters running in and out of the tunnels, shifting loyalties, getting into fights, unexpectedly crossing paths, etc. A lot happened quickly, and while most of it could be followed(*), there's always the danger that the emotional beats — say, of a semi-significant character like Tripp apparently dying in his attempt to save Skye — get »
