It's always fun when our favorite TV shows give us Halloween themed episodes during this fun and creepy time of year. Some shows offer us real horror, while others use the opportunity to make us laugh. There are certain Halloween episodes that I have enjoyed watching over the years that have stuck with me, and I've put together a list of ten of my favorites that I think are awesome. I didn't include Halloween specials like It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown or Garfield's Halloween Special because those was more specialized, and not really a part of a series. You can go through my picks below, and when you're done, let me know what some of your favorite Halloween episodes are!
The X-Files - "Home"
Technically this isn't a Halloween-themed episode, but it did air in October, and it was one hell of a terrifying hour of television. I mean, »

The 'Modern Family' star tells Et about her past experience with thyroid cancer.
The 2014 Angel Ball was an opportunity for stars and philanthropists to get together and raise money and awareness for cancer research.
Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet outside the gala celebration, and the Colombian star stopped to talk to Et about her own reasons for supporting the event.
"I had thyroid cancer some years ago," the 42-year-old actress revealed. "But it's not only because of that. [Cancer] is such a horrible sickness that we all should help anyways, even if you have never had it."
Video: Sofia Vergara Shares Her Secrets to Looking Your Best at 42
When Vegara was 28 years old, she had to have her thyroid removed and undergo radioactive iodine therapy. According to an interview she did with The New York Times, she now has to take daily doses of medication to battle hypothyroidism.
Absolutely gorgeous! Those are the words most fans will repeat after seeing Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds on their first red carpet together since announcing they were expecting. While attending Gabrielle's Angel Ball in New York City, Lively wore a pale yellow silk Gucci gown that featured a plunging neckline composed of silver crystal embroidery. The long-sleeve dress perfectly showed off the expectant mom's glow and growing baby bump! Not to be outdone, Reynolds looked quite handsome as well as he donned a Gucci tuxedo with a navy silk bow tie and black leather shoes. Is it too early to crown the Best Dressed Couple of 2014? The Angel Ball is a star-studded event that »
Now that it’s finally been released on DVD, we look at the TV shows that built on The Wonder Years’ foundations…
The Wonder Years, famous for being the show that made a generation of kids nostalgic for a decade they’d never even set foot in, finally arrived on DVD this month following the resolution of a years-long music rights tangle. Neal Marlens and Carol Black’s comedy drama ran for six seasons between 1988 and 1993 on ABC, following Fred Savage’s Kevin Arnold through his late-sixties and early-seventies suburban adolescence.
Thematically, stylistically, and tonally, The Wonder Years blazed a trail for television comedy and teen-focused drama that was subsequently traipsed down by numerous shows, from the superlative Freaks And Geeks and My So-Called Life to How I Met Your Mother, Malcolm In The Middle and countless others. Its innovative film-style use of a single-camera, lack of laughter track, fourth-wall breaking, »
Marvel’s Daredevil follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
With a plethora of Marvel and DC characters coming to life on the big and small screen, there appears to be no sign of things slowing down with this series on the horizon’s and particularly Marvel’s stronghold seemingly taking over the world. This time, thanks to Netflix, Marvel’s first original series on the streaming service is executive produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, »

Marvel and Netflix have released the first images of Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock and Daredevil and I have to say...they look great. While showrunner Steve DeKnight promised the show would explore the noir side of the Marvel Universe in a modern day Hell’s Kitchen, I wasn't sure if Daredevil would start off wearing the red costume or if they'd slowly build towards it as the show went on. Judging from the first images, DeKnight has definitely been influenced by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s run on the series (Daredevil: Man Without Fear), and it wouldn't surprise me if the storyline borrows liberally from their take. After all, it was a great run, so why not use it. Anyway, we're going to have a lot more on Daredevil later today with Perri's recap of the New York Comic-Con panel. Until then, check out the first images. »

The legendary movie palace The Redford Theatre in Detroit presents a Three Stooges film festival this weekend. Here is the press release:
It’s October and Halloween is only a few weeks away. What better way to start getting ready for that scary holiday than a “Three Stooges Horror Festival”? Join us this weekend for a few frights and loads of hilarity as the Stooges roll through six of their spookiest shorts. “Mummy's Dummies” finds the boys selling used chariots in ancient Egypt (and not quite on the up and up). Soon they find themselves appearing in front of King Rootentootin, (a large and rotund Vernon Dent). Hilarity follows. Strangely, in another one of our features, “We Want Our Mummy”, we find the Stooges back in Egypt several centuries later, looking for the mummy of that same King Rootentootin — who is discovered to be a midget. Go figure. That latter »

Supernatural, Season 10, Episode 1: “Black”
Written by Jeremy Carver
Directed by Robert Singer
Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on The CW
It was inevitable that Dean would suffer lasting consequences from receiving the Mark of Cain last season, especially once he had killed Abaddon, and thus had no more need for the Mark or the First Blade. However, the ninth season finale’s final reveal that Dean had become a demon, a lifelong fear of his, drove home just how deep those consequences were. The tenth season opener takes a look at how Dean has changed as a result of his death last season, in a compelling episode that sets up a potentially fascinating Angel storyline as well.
The Angel issue raised in the season premiere is a promising storyline. As Hannah points out in this week’s episode, much of the Angels’ storylines have been about gaining control, »

Due Out: October 7, 2014
Who’S It For? “The Wonder Years” is timeless. Thankfully it doesn’t feel dated simply because I was a child of the ’80s trying to understand life in the late ’60s. “The Wonder Years” was my gateway drug to a nostalgia I didn’t even know. Like many of you, I grew up with Kevin. I hoped for Winnie, I had friends like Paul (and probably was Paul more than I realized).
I can’t wait to show “The Wonder Years” to my son. I’ll have to wait, because he hasn’t even turned two yet, but now I have six episodes to show him, and hopefully that will just be the beginning.
TV Score: 10/10

Fans of the Buffy/Angel franchises got a double helping of crossover episodes in late November 1999. With Angel skulking in the shadows in Sunnydale for Pangs, Buffy repaid the compliment by going to La to yell at her former squeeze. If the lacklustre Pangs kept the two apart, then I Will Remember You sees them finally achieve their goal of being a regular, loved-up couple.
At least for 20-ish minutes, any road. This is Angel, don't forget. The man doesn't brood without good reason, given that he's a walking bad luck magnet. I Will Remember You sums up Angel's somewhat hapless existence in that he has to give up the one thing that he's ever wanted in order to be the champion for good. For the more weepy of Angel fans, be warned: you may flood your own lounge by crying rivers in the last five minutes of this episode. »
Marvel’s upcoming Daredevil Netflix series may have been noticeably absent from San Diego Comic-Con this year, but that’s because the studio was waiting to debut the first glimpse at the Man Without Fear at New York Comic-Con instead. Today, Marvel officially announced their plans to bring Daredevil to Nycc next weekend and released the official logo for the highly anticipated show.
While the logo itself obviously isn’t very revealing, it’s got a great pulpy, comic book feel to it. It’s ironically unlike any of the more blocky, “gritty” logos used for the Marvel films, despite the fact that Daredevil has extensively been described as a look at the “dark and gritty” side of the McU.

With so many TV shows being cancelled after a season or two, it’s perhaps not surprising that those that keep going long enough to reach a significant milestone often want to mark the occasion in some way. Such celebratory episodes usually feature plenty of nods, in-jokes and references to past episodes and characters (frequently involving special guest stars from the show’s past returning in some form) and tend to be either light, sometimes metafictional comedy episodes, or extremely dramatic game-changers following which the show may never be the same again. If you’re not crying with laughter, you’ll probably be weeping at the emotional trauma inflicted by the story.

Goooooood evening, boys and girls! Before we get on with today’s column, let us have a moment of silence (because we’ve all fainted from excitement) to celebrate that a Deadpool movie is really, truly, finally in the works. For real this time. Like, totally.
(Obligatory Nsfw test footage shot)
Aaaaaand, we’re back. Everyone have time to get up off the floor? Yes? Excellent. And don’t be ashamed of fainting. I’m that excited, too! Now, we just have to hope that they don’t screw it up.
And now on with the column. The convention season has been just flying by, it seems. Barely did I return from Sdcc before it was time to start finalizing my costumes and setting my meet-up plans for Dragon Con; and of course after Dragon Con, Baltimore Comic Con was literally right around the corner, being the next weekend.

As CBS’ Person of Interest (Tuesdays at 10/9c) opened Season 4, it was Root, of all people, who needed to light a fire under Team Machine leader Harold Finch, who in the wake of Samaritan going online (and given the lives lost to date) had abandoned his faith.
But as Root noted, she, Harold et al still “have a god in this fight,” and with those words she nudged him toward caring about the numbers again.
