It's been another busy day at Comic-Con, but one of the panels we're really excited about is almost ready to begin!

Let's get the Comic-Con 2014 live-blogging extravaganza started! Over the next four days, I'll be blogging and live-blogging on a slew of Comic-Con panels from Ballroom 20 and Hall H. Thursday will see a number of live-blogs, as I sit in Ballroom 20 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Let's start with "24," which returns to Comic-Con for the first time in years, bringing Kiefer Sutherland and promising many, many questions about the future of the franchise, as well as "24: Live Another Day." As recently as Sunday, Peter Rice said that no determinations had been made about whether "24" will live yet another day, but let's see if there were secrets being saved for San Diego... 10:01 a.m. The panel was supposed to start a minute ago, but people are still filing in. The room will be totally packed by the time we get going, I assume... The panel is just Kiefer Sutherland and Jon Cassar, »

Four new scripted shows debut tonight: two dramas on USA ("Rush" at 9, "Satisfaction" at 10), two comedies on FX ("Married" at 10, "You're the Worst" at 10:30). I loved none of them, but found enough interesting ideas, and enough overlap between several of them, to consider some kind of combined review. I could, for instance, have doubled up "Rush" and "Satisfaction" and mused for a bit about the state of the USA brand as it moves further away from the "blue skies" formula of "Burn Notice" and other shows, and how "Rush" feels like an attempt to do a darker version of one of those blue skies shows (it's "Royal Pains" meets "Ray Donovan"), while "Satisfaction" is a wild swing in a completely different direction. Or I could have written about the very different approaches that "Satisfaction" and "Married" take to the idea of marriages curdling from over-familiarity and a lack of sex. »

“She was young, she was beautiful, she was innocent and she would pay for it all with her life.”
These are the words etched on the back of my trade paperback as flavor text. Ominous grim words. In the history of Spider-Man lore, this event shaped his professional and personal life forever. Let’s talk about the story itself first.
The basic plot is that Green Goblin and Spider-Man both know each other’s secret identities (Norman Osborn and Peter Parker, respectively). Norman Osborn is insane and has a fragmented mind, where when he’s the Goblin, he forgets he’s Norman and vice versa. His goal is to kill Spider-Man. »

To get to a happy ending in a Tom Hanks movie, an innocent character has to pay the price. Here's the proof...
With the best part of $10bn banked for his movies across his career, Tom Hanks remains one of the biggest and most interesting movie stars on the planet. His most recent performance in Captain Phillips, for instance, was comfortably one of his best. And looking back on Hanks’ career, the path of increased boldness and range is easy to chart.
Furthermore, he’s achieved his successes without public meltdowns, without signs of turning into a diva, and without putting us through many poor films at all. The man is a hero.
Well, to everyone but certain characters in his movies. For, on rewatching Big, we became aware of an alarming trend: that there tends to be a character in a Tom Hanks movie whose role is to »

A fair amount of jet lag is certainly to be expected for anyone coming back from a 13-month long trip to space. A bout of morning sickness is not. So, astronaut Molly Woods (Oscar winner Halle Berry) is more than a little stunned to learn that her solo mission turned into a surprise party for two. For anyone who's seen the parade of promos for Extant, the Steven Spielberg-produced drama that debuted Wednesday on CBS, the premiere wasn't exactly packed with surprises. For instance, we already knew that a gorgeous man/alien who resembles Molly's former (and late »

A review of "The Bridge" season 2 premiere coming up just as soon as I defend my Rush t-shirt... In my advance review of the season, I noted my relief that "The Bridge" had moved beyond the silly serial killer plot that consumed so much of season 1, while ultimately feeling like the series hadn't improved significantly overall. Through the five episodes I've seen, there are fewer lows, but also not quite as many highs. The new story arc, and the introduction of so many significant characters keeps things moving at a nice clip, but I found myself missing some of the lingering weirdness that season 1 seemed to have more time for. We do get some of that vintage strangeness at the open and close of "Yankee," though. The episode begins with everyone's favorite business card-wielding drug lawyer Monte P. Flagman showing up at a housing development in the desert that's the »

Robot kids, moving photographs, mysterious pregnancies, Goran Visnjic in glasses – Extant has it all and more! CBS' newest futuristic venture, created by Mickey Fischer and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, tells the story of Molly Woods (Halle Berry), an astronaut who returns home to her husband John (ER's Goran Visnjic) and her robot son Ethan (Looper's Pierce Gagnon) after a 13-month solo mission, only to discover that she's somehow pregnant. The pilot gave us a few hints about the space baby's origins, but only enough to keep us intrigued. While on her mission, communications went down for approximately 13 hours. During that time, Molly was visited by her apparently dead »
CBS's upcoming summer series “Extant” gets way out there in more ways than one. The series, which includes Steven Spielberg among its executive producers and debuts Wednesday, stars Halle Berry as Molly Woods, an astronaut who returns from a 13-month solo mission only to find out that she's improbably pregnant. She and her husband, John (played by “ER” alum Goran Visnjic) have a young son — who turns out to be an android. If that weren't enough to puzzle over, the series also includes a pair of astronauts who may have died. But possibly not. And that's just the first episode. »

Once Upon a Time season 4 just keeps sounding better and better, doesn't it? Fans already know that Frozen is coming to the ABC hit series, with several characters already cast, and now another character tied to that storyline has been announced - and this casting news could be the best yet.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Lost favorite Elizabeth Mitchell is joining the show, but very little is known about her role. She is playing someone "possibly malevolent" with ties to Frozen sisters Anna and Elsa and to Storybrooke and Arendell. Mitchell's TV credits also include ER, V and the recently cancelled Revolution. »
So it appears that Harry Styles favorited a rather graphic porn tweet, and the Internet lost their collective minds, with #HarryDontLickAnything becoming the number one trending topic on Twitter. Harry eventually noticed the trend and unfavored the tweet, replacing it among his nine favorited tweets with a cute animal. Can’t a boy band superstar appreciate porn without the whole world weighing in?
Doritos has unleashed a Roulette edition bag of chips in Canada. The idea is that most of the bag is normal chips, but 3-4 in the bag are stunningly, amazingly hot, and you don’t know which is which. People have been filming their reactions and taking over YouTube. Personally, I like to know what I’m putting in my mouth. »

Some television shows feel like they're going to be smash hits before anyone's seen a frame of footage; usually because of the writers working on it, the network's reputation with its genre, or the popularity of the actors involved.
Other programmes even feel like they're simply too big to fail; such as HBO's Game of Thrones and AMC's The Walking Dead, which also benefit from having rich source material to mine and a ready-made, evangelical audience.
But what about the TV shows that felt like bad ideas before they'd aired - or even during their debut season - yet managed to overcome widespread uncertainties and grow into well-regarded programmes it's hard to imagine we were ever unsure about?
Let's take a look at some recent examples of popular TV shows that didn't initially feel like they'd work, but proved the doubters wrong...

Having previously played one of Joker's thugs, its not known which coveted Ant-Man role the actor has signed on for. Marvel and Disney are keeping his character under wraps, but it's likely he's returning to his villainous ways.
David Dastmalchian is an accomplished TV actor who has appeared in bit roles on hit series such as ER, The League, and Ray Donovan before taking on the part of Bob Taylor in Prisoners starring opposite Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. He also recently appeared in the cancelled J.J. Abrams series Almost Human. Ant-Man will be his most high profile project to date.
Kellan Lutz (Legend of Hercules), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Taryn Manning ("Orange is the New Black") have joined the cast of "Experimenter," which already has Peter Sarsgaard, Winona Ryder, Anthony Edwards ("ER") and Edoardo Ballerini (Romeo Must Die) on board. The story focuses on social psychologist Stanley Milgram who, in 1961, designed the controversial Obedience Experiments at Yale University, which observed the responses of ordinary people who believed they were sending harmful electrical shocks to an stranger. Lutz will play actor William Shatner, who portrayed Milgram in a 1970s TV movie. "Experimenter" will be directed by Michael Almereyda (Hamlet) and will be released next year. »
