Stephen King Has Confidence in JJ Abrams for Castle Rock
There is no questioning the fact that Stephen King is one of the most prolific authors of our time, having written countless masterpieces over the years. If you doubt the validity of the aforementioned statement, just take a moment to allow your memory to remind you of how many of King’s books have been adapted for the big screen and become classics. Start with films like Pet Cemetary, The Shining, The Shawshank Redemption, and Misery for starters. There are some Stephen King fans that have not been happy with the way Hollywood has translated his novels into film, but nevertheless,

On the shimmering stiletto heels of RuPaul’s Drag Race scoring eight Emmy nominations comes the news that two of Drag Race’s most beloved contestants are getting their own show.

Days of Our Lives: Did Abe Really Do This With Dario?
Days of Our Lives fans have been hearing rumors. We were all shocked when Abe went down for the partnership with Dario. No one expected Salem’s very own mayor to be the man behind the plot Dario was running, but it seems that he might have been. Except we don’t think so. We don’t know what Eli was thinking when he was putting together this information, but we do think that there is a chance he was wrong and there is something else going on. And now we hear there might be another man in the game. Instead of it

‘Twin Peaks’ James Marshall Addresses the Biggest Mystery of All: Was James Really Always Cool?
“Twin Peaks” hasn’t exactly abounded in moments of tenderness these last few months, but the end of part two remains a highlight: “James is cool,” Shelly says of her old classmate James Hurley. “James was always cool.” Whether or not that’s actually true might not rank among the revival’s most hotly debated questions, but it’s one that actor James Marshall was kind enough to address in a recent Vulture interview: “I don’t think of myself that way or the character that way,” he admits.
“Shelly isn’t saying James has become ‘Fonzie cool,’ what she’s saying, I think, is that he’s cool because he’s always had a straight line,” Marshall clarifies. “Everyone has gone a little kooky, but James has always been a good »

Was There Any Doubt Daniel Craig Would Return for Bond 25?
Did you really think Daniel Craig would miss out on a role that basically got him thrust into the mainstream? The guy has been playing the role since 2006 after all, there’s no reason why he can’t come back.

For all that Bond goes through you would think that his body would wear down,
How a Test Audience Can Make Or Break a New TV Series
While the evolution of television has open the door a multiplicity of new networks, such as NetFlix, Hulu, and Amazon, to throw their hats into the ring of television programming — providing a wide spectrum of options for television viewers, it has also led to an increasingly competitive market that has produced a highly fragmented viewership. What does all of this mean to producers and networks as they are attempting to find new and alluring programming? It means that it will be important to hit more than you miss when selecting new programming. One way that producers, creators, and writers

Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Drama Series
In a truly remarkable, record-breaking development, no fewer than five of the seven shows nominated for Outstanding Drama Series this year are not just first timers, but series in their very first season. Part of this can be attributed to the absence of the victor of the past two years, Game of Thrones, which started to air its latest season after the eligibility window closed. But what it really points to is the extraordinary quality of this year's new output of dramas… »

“There is only one hero who never stays silent,” intones the narrator as the ad opens, giving a “Batman”-like vibe to the proceedings. “Who fights against injustice wherever he finds it. And the world needs him now more than ever.” Ld’s face then appears in the night sky à la the Bat Signal, much to the chagrin of the man himself: He gives a look of hesitant annoyance before deciding to stay in for the evening rather than come to our rescue. “Turn the light off!

Five Things You didn’t Know about Mark Palansky
You know you’ve heard the name, but Mark Palansky has been largely under the radar for a good part of his career. This could be due to the fact at lot of his movies don’t tend to follow what is seen as conventional and even wise by other film makers. While it’s very acceptable that all directors have their own style and set of quirks that set them aside from the rest, it is sometimes wise to at least cater to the audience if not pander to them. After all the audience wants to be excited and even enchanted by

5 Defenders That Would Be Better Choices Than Iron Fist
When it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Iron Fist, I am in the vocal minority that thought the series was fine. While by no means groundbreaking – or even near the level of competence as Netflix’s other Marvel series – it served a function in the shared universe and was, at a bare minimum, an enjoyable addition to it. That being said, there is no question that the character – or, at least, Danny Rand – didn’t work. His multi-billionaire status makes him an awkward fit for Marvel’s “working class heroes” that populate the mean streets of New York.
