While Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is still months away from its already highly anticipated mid-season premiere in March of 2015, it’s not stopping us from reporting all the latest news we can get about the show while we wait. Today we may have something very exciting to look forward to. One of the characters that had a large presence last season and had a huge fan following was the character of Mike Peterson a.k.a. Deathlok, played by the marvelously talented J. August Richards who is most-known for his role Gunn Charles on the Joss Whedon drama Angel, the spin-off show of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The last time we saw him on the show was in the season one finale, where he told Skye (now also known as Daisy) that he had to go into hiding after he was controlled by John Garrett (Bill Paxton) and Hydra. »
It’s been a strange season of The Voice — and not just because of Gwen Stefani’s penchant for pairing torturous heels with tights.
But despite the almost constant shift in contestant momentum and often head-scratching results (Damien over Toia Jones in the Knockouts? Ryan Sill in the Top 8?), something kind of miraculous occurred during tonight’s performance finale: NBC’s reality singing behemoth finally took on its most obvious shortcoming — that it’s never produced an American Idol-level superstar — and did something that may very well obliterate all those “what’s the point of all this, anyway?” criticisms. »
Four little words made waves in the Whedonverse this weekend: “Widescreen Buffy is nonsense.”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon finally came out swinging Saturday against the HD version of his iconic series, now airing on Pivot. Originally shot in a 4:3 aspect ratio, the new 16:9 format is loaded with questionable changes, including awkward cropping, suspect lighting and even occasional appearances by crew members in shots, all of which is carefully detailed in this Facebook post.
A prime example is this shot from the Season 1 episode “Angel,” which — without the original, darker filter — makes it appear as though »

Back in December 2002 a million voices cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced by the Fox network. It probably sounded a bit like the noise you made when you read the title of this feature.
Defending the decision to cancel Joss Whedon's beloved sci-fi show after just 14 episodes might seem like geek treason, but whilst Fox's intentions were borderline criminal, the results were nothing short of revolutionary.
First things first: Firefly is one of the greatest sci-fi shows of all time. The closest thing to Star Wars since 1983, and arguably the best thing Joss Whedon has ever made, it's the holy grail of space-western comedy-dramas. In the 12 years since it was canned, the short-lived series has become a cult phenomenon for good reason. In 2007, the box set was even rocketed up to the International Space Station's intergalactic DVD library (which, to be fair, also includes 50 First Dates »

Though this year’s Noah turned a lot of heads and made more than a handful of viewers frustrated, be it for declining to use the word “God” or just including Rock Titan Angel things into a Biblical story, Darren Aronofsky still remains a highly valued director and ever rising auteur in Hollywood.
Aronofsky is currently working on MaddAddam for HBO, an adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s trilogy of dystopian sci-fi books. But The Playlist has done a little digging and determined that his next film could be based on the book The Good Nurse, written by Charles Graeber.
The Good Nurse is a non-fiction story of Charlie Cullen, a medical professional arrested in 2003 after it was discovered that he was responsible for the deaths of as many as 300 patients over the course of his long career, and quite possibly the most prolific serial killer in American history.

Libraries are a little bit magical, aren’t they? They’re one of the few places you’re still asked to be quiet and reverential; they’re packed full of all sorts of knowledge and stories; and they’re organised due to some kind of arcane system that the average person on the street won’t have a hope of navigating. Okay, so nowadays you can learn pretty much anything you want to know just by firing up Wikipedia, but there’s still something impressive about all those words being housed in one place. In both Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, libraries are places for arcane magic to take place.
In a series of TV movies from the early 2000s starring Noah Wyle, librarians are mystical guardians of all kinds of magic. »

Monty Python's "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life," the jaunty singalong that first appeared in the comedy troupe's 1979 film The Life of Brian, has long been a staple at funerals for its optimistic tone, bubbly melody and lyrics about one's own demise. But in a new survey of funeral directors, the track has become the most popular song to play at British funerals, according to the Telegraph.
