"Lockup" is a filler episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, but it's fun, and there's plenty of Ghost Rider...
Okay, I’m sold on this Ghost Rider thing. Like many of you when I first heard there would be a major focus on the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider on Agents Of Shield season 4, I thought, “Man, I hope Marvel doesn’t sacrifice too much story time on Ghost Rider’s origins.” I was excited to see the character realised on TV in the mighty Marvel manner, but I didn’t want to see story time taken away from Daisy, Fitz, Simmons, May, and Mack.

On October 17th, you’re going to get a chance to watch something that’s actually pretty brilliant, undeniably fascinating, when Red Bull TV brings you The Horn.
Providing an up close and personal look at those involved in one of the most unbelievable jobs on the planet, The Horn brings you the team of Air Zermatt, the air rescue team in charge of The Matterhorn and the surrounding area. The trailer will give you a glimpse of what’s coming, and you’ll get to hear one of the crew members tell you that they manage some 70+ rescues per year.
But, this isn’t just a standard documentary effort that takes you along for the ride during actual rescues (though I don’t know what “standard” might mean there anyway), because The Horn also gives you a look at the team, and lets you see these heroes “behind the scenes. »

What the heil is happening on Supernatural? What old feud is Lucifer digging up? How is Arrow channeling Game of Thrones? “Lost” Person of Interest dialogue found? Read on for answers to those questions plus teases from other shows.
Please, please, please, anything you can tell me about my fave show, Supernatural? —Lisa
Oh, this is a bit more than “anything.” “We’ve got something really cool coming up in Episode 5, where it will be the triumphant or not so triumphant return of the Thule, who have decided »
No DC Comics reviews for me this week as it seems Rebirth is taking a break (unless you need to go pick up those 2nd printings!-and you should!) So I will focus a little more on Marvel. Rumbles in the rumor community are suggesting Another reboot coming Marvel’s way real soon which promises to change the landscape of the Marvel Universe again! I’m guessing it will be the fallout from this terrible Civil War going on. Remember if there’s a book you want to have checked out, let me know and I will review it!

After years of speculation, the May 4 episode of “Supernatural” finally revealed what many fans have long suspected — that dorky author and former prophet Chuck Shurley (Rob Benedict) is God, and he’s been purposefully staying out of mankind’s travails for the past few seasons — but now that his troublemaking sister Amara (Emily Swallow) is threatening to obliterate his creation, it’s time for the Almighty to get back in the game. But will Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) believe that the nebbish writer who novelized their life story is actually the creator of the universe?
Variety spoke to Benedict about returning to the show in Season 11’s “Don’t Call Me Shurley,” poking fun at the series’ actual creator, Eric Kripke, and Chuck/God’s relationship with the Winchesters in episode 21, “All in the Family.”
When did you get the news that you’d be returning?
I got it officially in January, »

Following the release in March of ‘A Man Called Gannon’ (1968), Simply Media in the UK continue to release more Universal-International westerns, this time of 1940s and ‘50s vintage. The new releases, out on 18 April, are ‘Calamity Jane & Sam Bass’ (1949), ‘Cattle Drive’ (1951) and ‘Black Horse Canyon’ (1954). This trio of films are literally ‘Horse Operas’, with the accent on thoroughbred steeds and their importance and role in the working west. Be they cattle drovers, stock breeders or outlaws, where would any of them be without the horse? The answer, of course, is walking.
I’ll review the DVDs in the order I watched them. First up is ‘Cattle Drive’, a 1951 western directed by Kurt Neumann. Chester Graham Jnr (Dean Stockwell), the spoilt, arrogant son of railroad magnet Chester Graham Snr (Leon Ames), is accidentally left behind when the train he is travelling on makes a water stop. »

During the Grammys, we were proud to bring you Spencer Pratt's Thoughts About the Grammys. But they were a paltry few compared to his thoughts about the Academy Awards. Spencer Pratt live-tweeted pretty much the entirety of the 2016 Academy Awards, and we are so, so proud to let you know what he thought of them. Academy of Arts and Sciences, if you could please take notes for next year's ceremony? (Please note this is only a selection - the greatest hits, if you will.) First off: A positive note. Everyone at #Oscars is obviously blessed— Spencer Pratt (@spencerpratt) February »

We all have predisposed notions about the infamous “romantic comedy.” As with other genres, there’s a large subsection of offerings, giving it a bad name. But, for every tired, cliché-driven comedy, there is another impressive offering that redefines the genre, garners plenty of laughs, and tells an honest story about love and relationships, however warped they may be. In the coming weeks, we’ll take a look at the fifty romantic comedy films that should be seen. These may not all be classic films, but they certainly put a stamp on the industry and the genre we affectionately call “rom-coms.”
#50. Moonrise Kingdom (2012)
Most of Wes Anderson’s films could be described as romantic comedies, but his 2012 effort stands out, as its central story focuses on young love and the need to find acceptance. In Anderson’s world, while quirks abound, true connections between characters are commonplace. With Moonrise Kingdom, »
