They really did it.
Things were a little bit confusing surrounding the promotion of Zoo Season 2 Episode 4. The official trailer said something like, "One of these people won't make it to the end of the hour," and proceeded to show shots including the main characters, as well as that wooded fiasco with the money thugs.
So when the money thugs wound up bear, wolf and tiger chow (or something) and Chloe's life was hanging in the balance when the credits rolled, Chloe could have been safe.
No such luck.
At the beginning of Zoo Season 2 Episode 5, Chloe barely had time to mutter the words Caraquet and courier (if we learned what the latter means by now, well, I was too damned involved to hear it) before drifting away as a heartbroken Jackson cried above her.
What The Hell?
Poor Jackson. They had that one sweet, free moment of kissing before »

Where there’s a Will there’s a way. Even in death.
I’m hearing Josh Charles is set to reprise his role as the late Will Gardner in The Good Wife‘s May 8 season finale. Rumor has it he will appear opposite Julianne Margulies’ Alicia in a newly-created flashback sequence (Ncfs). CBS would not confirm Charles’ return.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the actress has landed the recurring Season 2 role of Allison, the Deputy Secretary of Defense who is actively seeking a solution to the animal crisis… and who shares a surprising history with Mitch (played by Billy Burke).
Defiance vet Tony Curran will guest-star in the final two episodes of Season 4 as Joshua Vikner, an economics professor who has more than an academic interest in the villainess, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Professor Vikner has much to teach Sherlock and his father, Morland, about the past, in addition to playing a large role in their future.

If the advertisements for Syfy’s new series Hunters were promising in their silly mish-mash of modern-day terrorism and B-movie monsters, it might not have been exactly because of the premise itself. In retrospect, Hunters piqued my interest because of the quality turn-around the network took with the largely solid first seasons of The Expanse and The Magicians.
I saw a commercial for Hunters during a particularly fun episode of the latter and, I admit, my enthusiasm for the network’s attempted return to Battlestar Galactica-level TV made me ready to consume everything on offer.
The problem with Hunters, then, is a tragically awkward disconnect between a silly premise (alien terrorists) and aggressively dour tone, one that’s only exacerbated by particularly lame world-building. It’s got the case-of-the-week camp vibe of the Warehouse 13 era, but showrunner Natalie Chaidez overly course-corrects »

Archer (A teenager trained to be the ultimate martial artist) is about to set off on his most dangerous mission yet - a quest into the mystic reaches of Armstrong's (Archer’s immortal, and definitely alcoholic adventuring buddy) bottomless satchel to liberate his friend and comrade from the clutches of the mad god Bacchus! (Okay, so, Armstrong went into the satchel himself to get a bottle of whiskey that he kinda misplaced and got stuck. It's like the Amazon warehouse of arcane treasures in there...and he doesn't exactly have a maid service.)
Archer and Armstrong feels like something that would fit perfectly into a late night slot on cartoon network, right there with Venture Bros, »

Surrounding your workspace with more clutter than a mid-noughties Myspace page is one way to assert individualism inside a bland corporate identity. It tells the world, ‘I’m not a number, I’m a free man! A free man overly fond of Pikachu!’ It can also be an act of mild rebellion, akin to leaving out the short and skinny bit of your school tie instead of the long, fat bit of your school tie that the man wants to see.
And then there’s sentimental desk décor, the talismans from loved ones from which you draw daily strength, reminding you why you shackled yourself to the capitalist cart horse in the first place. These are the photos, drawings and poorly made pottery items that prove you exist outside of work, »
Ten people arrive at a secluded mountain resort to find it completely deserted. With no gas for the return trip, the visitors are forced to stay and investigate the mystery surrounding the abandoned lodge. As their friends start disappearing for no apparent reason, tensions grow as the survivors try to figure out what is gong on, without disappearing themselves.
If there is one thing I have learned from watching horror films over the years, is that going to a secluded lodge which is ‘miles from anywhere’ may seem like a fantastic idea but it Never is. If you are low on fuel by the time you get there, you might as well just lie down on the floor and wait for the inevitable. »
