Gold Star father Khizr Khan calls for hope and defiance in the face of Trump's bigotry on The Daily Show

4 hours ago

While Khizr Khan and Trevor Noah didn’t bring up Donald Trump’s recent attacks on the family of deceased U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson in the broadcast version of their interview on Monday’s Daily Show, they didn’t have to to get Khan’s point across. (In the post-air extended version of the interview, Khan does…

Crackerjack action, big questions, and bad dialogue power a brisk episode of The Gifted

7 hours ago

One story prompt that has yet to be fully explored in the X-Men movies (and must have come up in the comics, but I’m not nearly as well-versed there) is the question of dedication to the cause as related to mutant abilities. That is, if these characters were suddenly denied their mutant powers, how willing would they…

An ambitious Supergirl flies a convertible to Mars

9 hours ago

Sometimes I like to stop and take stock of just how far Supergirl has come in the past three seasons. Like all of the CW superhero shows, it’s easy to write off the series as being a little old fashioned or clunky in its episodic approach to superhero storytelling. But what I don’t think the show gets enough credit…

Here's what's coming to (and leaving from) HBO Now in November

12 hours ago

Thanksgiving aside, November is typically a month of transition. It’s too late for scary movies and too early for holiday movies, but also it’s kind of a perfect time for both scary movies and holiday movies. HBO is kind of embracing this for its HBO Go and HBO Now services in November, bringing subscribers one of the…

John McCain now says he wasn't calling out Trump in comments about draft dodgers

15 hours ago

One of the few, humorous bright spots in the last week was John McCain’s interview with C-SPAN3 on the Vietnam War, during which he criticized affluent American citizens who got out of their tours of duty by handing in doctor’s notes. The Arizona senator didn’t word his comments in that exact manner, of course, but…

The connections between It and The Shining could tell us what even Pennywise fears

17 hours ago

With the release of It and The Dark Tower (and, hell, even Gerald’s Game), more and more casual Stephen King fans are hearing tell of the “dark universe” that connects so many of his books. Pennywise and the Losers’ Club, for example, not only appear in It, but are also either referenced or seen in King books like The…

Another episode with too much Star Trek, not enough Discovery

22 October 2017 7:37 PM, PDT

The problem isn’t that Star Trek: Discovery is terrible. It’s not. It’s not great; it’s not even consistently good. But it’s not the worst, and if this wasn’t a Star Trek show, I think I’d be more inclined to be favorable towards it. “Lethe” has some decent emotional beats, particularly in Burnham’s storyline, and…

Rick takes the fight to Negan in an adequate Walking Dead season premiere

22 October 2017 7:10 PM, PDT

Last season of The Walking Dead ended with Rick joining forces with the Kingdom and Maggie’s Hilltop crew to take on Negan. And to give credit where it’s due, that’s pretty much right where the season eight premiere picks up. After hemming and hawing and looking tortured for what felt like decades, Rick has decided to…

Teddy and Linda try their hardest in a fun Halloween Bob's Burgers

22 October 2017 6:19 PM, PDT

Poor Teddy and Linda. Through the entire series of Bob’s Burgers, these two characters share the plight of wanting so badly to make everyone around them happy, but the harder they try the more things go off the rails. They are the two characters who are most free of cynicism and regularly embrace the simple joys in…
