Doctor Faustus (1967)
Saints, Sinners, and the Collective Unconscious is riveting. Mr. Lombardi is an artist with an intimate understanding of history in regard to religion and popular culture. After careful viewing of the 30 works in the exhibition, I was compelled to research the titles of the works because they seemed to hold the key to unlocking Lombardi’s intentions. I focused on the works in the Saints section of the exhibition because I found their cryptic iconography most intriguing. The research of the saints depicted in Lombardi’s work opened up a new route for me to access the works’ meaning.

Lombardi started this piece (below) in 1964 when he was first getting into painting as a ten-year-old boy. He came back to it fifty years later. He first painted

The idea of selling one's soul is as old as literature. In 1587, a German chapbook called Historia von D. Johann Fausten by an author named Johann Spies caused a sensation. It was reprinted dozens of times, it inspired one of the first English language plays in the form of The Tragical History Of The Life And Death Of Doctor Faustus, and it was even one of the first movies filmed by Edison Studios, 1900's Faust And Marguerite. Long story short, as long as there has been media of any type, and presumably as long as people have been gathering around fires to tell tales,
The season finale of the show sparked debates among fans regarding the fate of the character who knows the least of them all – Jon Snow. Now speculations might come to an end as Kit Harington had something to say about his character.

But is Kit Harington splashing delusions into our eyes and will he, at the end, prove to know nothing just like Snow?

If you were offered a psychotropic devil’s bargain that would make you an uber-capable genius at the cost of your safety, would you take it?
The CBS spin-off show poses no such question. Not in the pilot at least. It doesn’t use its neural-enhancement-drug premise to probe the ethics of an issue that’s recurred in myth for centuries, from Prometheus to the Garden of Eden to Doctor Faustus to a shelf of comic books a mile long. Instead, it uses it to populate network TV with yet another super-powered crime-solver.
Because by the end of the Limitless pilot,
"I think we've changed the look of her a bit obviously. We've made her an actress, which is very Hedy Lamarr. She was a '40s siren actress who was also a scientific genius, so that's part of what we're mining with this character.
Variety spoke to “Agent Carter” showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters ahead of the season one denouement, titled “Valediction,” to find out what’s in store for Peggy and Jarvis (James D’Arcy) when Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) makes his long overdue return, and how Agents Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) will handle working with Peggy now that there’s a power vacuum in the Ssr.
