‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Producers Unpack the Midseason Finale, and Why This is The Most Romantic ‘Star Trek’ Ever
[Editor’s Note: Spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 1 Episode 9, “Into the Forest I Go,” follow.]

Star Trek: Discovery” fans thrown off guard by the midseason finale’s ending, guess what? That was the plan. According to showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts, that’s exactly what they wanted.

“Every couple of episodes, right around the time the audience feels like, ‘Oh, I know what you’re doing,’ we switch it up,” Berg told IndieWire. “It became a natural rhythm for the show, and it makes it really fun for us, the writers, everybody, really. Because it’s a way to keep it lively.”

The final moments of Episode 9, “Into the Forest I Go,” find the Discovery lost in unknown territory following a massive malfunction with the ship’s spore drive. “It felt like a great place to end the first half of the season, too,” Harberts said. “We had a lot of fun tracking the debate that the fans are having about where they think

Star Trek: Discovery Recap: Loops!... Mudd Did It Again (& Again & Again)

Star Trek: Discovery Recap: Loops!... Mudd Did It Again (& Again & Again)
Well, that was a fun little brain-bender of a Star Trek: Discovery episode, wasn’t it? (Harry Mudd plus a repeating time loop is a pretty reliable formula for quality, after all.)

Burnham is feeling more at home on the Discovery, and even experiencing some unfamiliar feelings towards new crew addition Lt. Ash Tyler. (“I find him… intriguing,” she narrates.) She still feels awkward at a crew party, but her roomie Tilly is letting loose, playing beer pong and confessing, “I’m kind of going through a musician phase right now.” (You go, Tilly!) She encourages Burnham to chat up Tyler,

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Review: ‘Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad’ Delivers the First Truly Great Episode of the Series

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Review: ‘Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad’ Delivers the First Truly Great Episode of the Series
From the very beginning of “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad,” we knew something different was in store for this episode. Up until now “Discovery” has favored extended cold opens, delaying the opening credits for several minutes. But instead, following the always moving opening theme by Jeff Russo, “Discovery” took on a narrative device well-explored by other sci-fi franchises — including another “Star Trek” series — and managed to both utilize the fun, appealing elements of the trope while finding its own spin on the action.

My 5: Mike Posner's Top Songs to Get Him Through Tough Times

My 5: Mike Posner's Top Songs to Get Him Through Tough Times
Mike Posner may not be the first person you'd expect to have a podcast. After all, he had a hit song in 2009 -- the earworm known as "Cooler Than Me" -- and made an impressive comeback in 2016 after a few years away from the spotlight, namely with his banger, "I Took a Pill in Ibiza."

But if you know Posner, the opportunity for introspection isn't strange at all. In fact, his new podcast, What Does This All Mean?, is a natural extension for the inquisitive Duke University grad. The new series explores what it means to be human, with a recent episode diving deep into his life-changing, chance meeting with Kanye West that ultimately led to a lesson in how to turn failure into success. Posner knows what it's like to reach the heights of fame and also how to find himself again, which makes the difficult journeys he's taking us on with his 10-episode podcast all the more

Watch Otto Warmbier’s Wistful Graduation Speech Before North Korean Captivity: ‘This Is the End of One Great Show’
Otto Warmbier showed off his warmth, humor and humanity in an evocative speech the salutatorian delivered at his 2013 high school graduation.

The 22-year-old Ohio native, who was released from imprisonment in North Korea in a coma on Tuesday, waxed nostalgic about their tight-knit community during his speech to his fellow Wyoming High School graduates.

“We know where everyone is going next year. We know where everyone has come from. We know how to make each other comfortable,” he said. “We know when someone is struggling, and we come together as a class to make things better.”

Theory Alert! Could Ser Davos Actually Be the Secret Hero on Game of Thrones?

Caution: the following contains spoilers pertaining to Game of Thrones season six! Between seasons of Game of Thrones, we've obsessed over theories predicting the secret savior of Westeros. Could it be Jon Snow - nay, Jon Targaryen - who might unite the Seven Kingdoms and defeat the White Walkers? Or might it be his fiery aunt, Daenerys? Hell, it might even be Sansa or Arya Stark, according to the theories we consume so ferociously to fill the void. But all this time, we've been overlooking some serious foreshadowing about one unexpected character: lovable Ser Davos Seaworth, the Onion Knight. According to an utterly convincing Reddit theory by Redditor FollowTheBeard, Davos may be Azor Ahai, or the "Prince That Was Promised." We know, crazy, right? After spending six seasons supporting another man (Stannis) who claimed to be Azor Ahai, it seems wild that it may have been Davos himself all along

‘Alive and Kicking’ Just Out in Theaters Near You
What a delight. From the first frame you are smiling and you never stop. You get the message that when you are dancing, Lindy, Swing, you name it, you cannot help but be happy.

Add to this confection of the sweet art of dancing among young and old, black, white, brown and yellow, its history as a dance started by enslaved Africans in America and you cheer for its rebirth today in all its freedom and glory. And by its end you will be ready to enroll in the nearest class.

All the dances derive from the Lindy Hop which began at the only fully integrated ballroom in America, in Harlem when the soldiers returned from World War II.

Susan Glatzer, who wrote, produced and directed this first film has been dancing swing and its variants for 20 years. Glatzer herself is not just a dancer, but a colleague of a generation of film buyers,

Benedict Cumberbatch to Star in ‘How to Stop Time,’ Studiocanal, SunnyMarch Attached

‘Westworld’ Finale Takes a Roundabout Path to Grappling With God, Avoids Concluding Anything

‘Westworld’ Finale Takes a Roundabout Path to Grappling With God, Avoids Concluding Anything
“The problem with torturing a robot,” Nathan Heller writes in the November 28 New Yorker, “has nothing to do with what a robot is, and everything to do with what we fear most in ourselves.” He wasn’t writing about HBO’s “Westworld,” but he might as well have been. The first season, which ended last night, spent 10 lengthy episodes wondering about robot consciousness — contrasting humans to “hosts,” creators to the created, exploiters to the exploited. But while artificial intelligence — and our ethical stance toward it — is a phenomenon looming on humanity’s horizon, it’s been less clear what “Westworld” is trying to say about, or to, its audience of human beings.

At first, “Westworld” was an exploration of the potential unholy revelry people could get up to if they could rape and pillage without consequences. Scalpings and eviscerations in the “game” depict a violence that is not just gory, but

Ray Donovan Season 4 Episode 4 Review – ‘Federal Boobie Inspector’

Mark Clark reviews the fourth episode of Ray Donovan season 4…

Week 4 and the intelligent directing choices continued as Phil Abraham (The Sopranos cinematographer and directing veteran) took control of yet another well-paced, well written, perfectly performed and just downright entertaining episode. I mean any show that starts with Avi declaring his love for ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ has to be doing something right.

Still trying to keep crime kingpin Sonia Kovitzky from the family door Ray has Lena and Avi spying on, via video feed, Da Jackson Holt – trying to find something blackmailable to get Belikov out of jail. Unfortunately that includes watching Holt getting friendly with a bidet. It’s a glam job being a fixer.

Meanwhile Ray and Abby are at the Fite Club to meet newest Donovan, Maria, and before you can say coochie-coo, Bunch asks Ray to be the Godfather. There’s a hilarious
