Bates Motel 501-01

Bates Motel
Season 5 Episode 1: “Dark Paradise”
Directed by Tucker Gates
Written by Kerry Ehrin
Starring Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Max Thieriot, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke
Air Date: Monday, February 20th, 2017, 10pm

Warning! Spoilers below for the 5th season premiere of Bates Motel!

When we last left Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) on Bates Motel, he had killed his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga), and threw away his meds to be reunited with her. He also dug up her body and put it in the basement. He almost pulled the trigger and ended it all, when the full psychosis kicked in complete with music, as Norma returned to live in the fantasy that they are happy together, forever. He did not tell Dylan (Max Thieriot) she was dead. Alex (Nestor Carbonell) freaked out in grief, knowing Norman did it, and was hauled off to jail for perjury, not the punch he gave Norman.

David Thewlis to join Wonder Woman

While Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) has been performing her heroic duties in most of the marketing campaign for her upcoming solo film Wonder Woman, there has been no sign of a villain yet. TV spots and trailers seem to indicate that there wouldn’t be a super-powered villain, and the film would just be a battle over the Mother Box McGuffin. However, there is a new rumor that says David Thewlis (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) will be playing the role of Ares, the Greek god of war. More on the story below.

Creator Gods of Violence Album Cover

Gods of Violence
CD | MP3
Label: Nuclear Blast
Release Date: January 27, 2017

Teutonic thrash lords Kreator have just unleashed their fourteenth studio album, Gods of Violence. The record is out now worldwide via the Nuclear Blast label and marks the German legends’ first studio effort in five years. That’s the longest period that Kreator have ever taken between albums in their 30-year career. So, was it worth the wait?

In short, yes! Not only is Kreator at the top of their game musically, but Gods of Violence may just be their most cohesive effort to date. It’s truly amazing when any band has such longevity, but to continue raising the bar when many of your contemporaries have long since fallen out is an extreme rarity.

Colony 206 Header

Season 2 Episode 6: “Fallout”
Directed by Thomas Carter
Written by Lee Patterson
Starring Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies, Peter Jacobson, Tory Kittles, Amanda Righetti, Paul Guilfoyle, Ally Walker, Alex Neustaedter, Isabella Crovetti-Cramp, Jacob Buster
Created by Ryan Condal, Carlton Cuse
Air Date: Thursday, February 16th, 2017, 10:00pm

Last time on Colony, two bombs went off. The first was in the labor camp. Bram (Alex Neustaedter) pretended (maybe) to be on Snyder’s (Peter Jacobson) side, while also being on Maya’s (Jessica Parker Kennedy) side. That didn’t work for two others who were shot in the head before Snyder could question them. Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) kicked Lindsey (Erin Way) out of the house for punishing Charlie (Jacob Buster). Will returned to work, surprised that Jennifer wasn’t there. The 2nd bomb went off and he went to the surveillance room to find her. Next was her house where his new partner, Bob (Toby Huss) showed up, telling him she couldn’t adapt so was “transferred.” Broussard (Tory Kittles) and his team got their hands on drone tech. Katie downloaded some intel on Bram at Maddie’s (Amanda Righetti) house.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

On last week’s mid-season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead, Rick and some of his crew from Alexandria went to both the Hilltop colony and the Kingdom to get the two communities to join his fight against Negan and the Saviors. But both of those groups turned Rick down, fearing that they’d lose if they went up against the Saviors. It seemed like the Alexandrians would remain on their own. When they returned home, they find their pantry has been emptied and Father Gabriel is gone. At first, it seemed as if Gabriel made off with everything and abandoned them, but Rick knows better. He found a clue left behind – the word “Boat,” and figured out that he must return to the boat area where they’d recently found supplies. When they arrive back to the area, they are surrounded by a new group of people carrying weapons. But Rick wasn’t afraid; instead, he smiled.

In the latest episode, 7.10 “New Best Friends,” we find out why Rick was smiling and what happened to Father Gabriel, as well as what’s happening back at the Kingdom and with the self-exiled Carol.
