Hannibal Finale Post Mortem: Bryan Fuller on Will/Lecter Love, Bedelia's Last Supper, That Siouxsie Sioux Jam
Hannibal may have aired its series finale on NBC tonight, but that doesn’t mean executive producer Bryan Fuller is done telling the story of the cannibalistic Dr. Lecter and his friends, frenemies and potential “dinner dates.”
“It’s not over until I’m dead, as far as I’m concerned,” Fuller says of his dream to continue this particular yarn — either through a fourth season on a new network, or (more likely) via a big-screen spinoff.
“The fans are going to have to be very patient. It’s »

If you had told us, prior to San Diego Comic-Con 2015, that the cast of Archer would be the toughest group to get spoilers from, we wouldn’t have believed you.

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Episode 2 Recap: Lights Out in East L.A.
Spoiler alert: This recap contains plot details from the latest episode of “Fear the Walking Dead.”
After a slow-burn premiere that spent more time on the humdrum problems of an unremarkable L.A. family than it did on the looming apocalypse, Sunday’s second episode of “Fear the Walking Dead” turned up the heat considerably. The result was a tension-filled hour of television that improved on last week’s debut in every way.
Following a brief pre-credit sequence, the episode – titled “So Close, Yet So Far” – begins with Maddie, Travis and Nick fleeing the scene of Calvin’s gory resurrection. Fearing for the safety of their kids, the two parents frantically call Alicia and Chris, while Nick searches the radio for news about the horrific outbreak.
A plan to escape to the desert is quickly hatched, though why Travis instantly decides they’ll be better off running away from the »

Review: 'Show Me a Hero' Parts 5 and 6 Reframe the Argument With a Sobering Finale
First Item of Business"Show me a hero, and I'll write you a tragedy." F. Scott Fitzgerald's fateful words — verbalized by a reporter after Nick's failed reelection bid in Part 4 — summed up co-writers David Simon and William F. Zorzi's tale of politics gone awry almost too simply — a somewhat ironic note after hours and hours of council chamber complexities. After all, the six-part story of one man's ill-timed and all-consuming bid for political power was about much more than one quest. Though the screenplay conveyed as much a little too bluntly from time to time, it's the gray lines shading our hero that made him such a fascinating figure to follow. Despite losing his political career (in part) because of what happened, it can't be said Nick was a martyr. He died for his own sins, not the town's. Nick Wasicsko didn't believe so strongly in the housing »

During Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, Minaj opened the show with a bang, performing “Trini Dem Girls” before introducing a special guest. Swift joined her during “The Night Is Still Young,” sending the audience (and Twitter) into a frenzy.
Swift then launched into her hit “Bad Blood,” and afterword, the two, who previously made headlines for a Twitter beef, hugged it out on stage.
When the nominations were announced, Minaj called out MTV when she was snubbed for a video of the year nomination.
“If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” she tweeted. “If I was a different ‘kind’ of artist, ‘Anaconda’ would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well.”

Wes Craven, Horror Legend, Dead at 76
Wes Craven, the legendary horror auteur who brought his nightmarish vision to both the big and small screens, died over the weekend of brain cancer. He was 76.
Although Craven made his biggest mark in movies via The Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream franchises, his influence extended to TV as well. In 1988, he created Freddy’s Nightmares, a two-season syndicated horror anthology series in which each episode was introduced by Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger (played by Robert Englund). He also served as an exec producer on MTV’s current adaptation of Scream.
In a 2013 episode of Castle, Craven guest-starred »
