Last time on Supernatural, hunters were being taken out – Eileen (Shoshannah Stern) got killed by a hellhound. Mary (Samantha Smith) dreamt she killed a hunter, but it wasn’t a dream. The British Men of Letters and Lady Bevell (Elizabeth Blackmore) were brainwashing her. Sam and Dean (Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles) got the best of Bevell, but then Ketch (David Haydn-Jones) came and entombed all 3 of them in the bunker to die, with brainwashed Mary’s help. The power started to reverse between Crowley and Lucifer (Mark Sheppard, Mark Pellegrino), until Lucifer broke free and gleefully killed Crowley.

The end of season 2 of Into The Badlands is here and it’s bittersweet. I always hate season finales of my favorite shows. No one likes saying good-bye. On a show like AMC’s Into the Badlands, it can mean saying goodbye in more ways than one. Sunny (Daniel Wu) fought his way back “into the Badlands” with one intention guiding him the whole way… find Veil (Madeleine Mantock) and his baby. While he and new pal Bajie (Nick Frost) worked their way in, the Badlands were crazy with battles, betrayals, and Barons, oh my. Quinn (Marton Csokas) survived Sunny’s attack and has been living with Veil as his “guest.” The Widow (Emily Beecham) has been the true dominant force of the season. When she was essentially given a death sentence during the conclave, her response was to form an alliance with Quinn. This alliance led to Jade’s (Sarah Bolger) removal from the Fort, Ryder’s (Oliver Stark) death, Lydia’s (Orla’s Brady) capture, and Veil’s return to Quinn after an escape. When that was done, it appeared Sunny and Widow would align, but then Widow was exposed to have traded Veil. The Widow was left falling apart, fighting her own daughter and regent Tilda (Ally Ioannides) at the end of last week’s episode. Will Sunny find Veil and have a final showdown with Quinn? Will The Widow finally get what she wants out of M.K. (Aramis Knight)? Will I be able to cope with no Badlands for the rest of the year?!
Spoilers for the season 2 Finale of Into the Badlands below:
On the latest episode of Doctor Who, “Extremis“: after returning from space, The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) must face a new challenge, one he has never encountered before. But before coping with his new circumstances, he is sought after by the Pope, who needs him to translate a mysterious text called Veritas. Recruiting Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) on the mission, the trio quickly find out that not everything is what it seems to be…
During TARDISblend 105, we enter the midpoint of the season and begin discussing the secret of the Vault and the return of a familiar villain. We also examine the writing style of this episode, both the highs and the lows.
The Dominant Paradigm is a weekly podcast where Geeks of Doom Podcast hosts Dwayne D, Andrew Sorcini, and Tosin Onafowokan discuss STARZ’s TV series American Gods, the works that inspired it, and the larger questions about the lenses in which we see our world, AKA, the paradigms.
In this episode of The Dominant Paradigm, Dwayne, Andrew and Tosin delve into American Gods, episode 4, “Git Gone.” Beyond the recap, the three discuss the salient imagery of cats, the power of luck, and the reason Laura wants Robbie to sing to her while giving him road head. We also talk about the way the show has radically departed from the from the 2001 novel, and why that’s for the better.
Finally, you’ll find Ephemera – links to content that is either related to American Gods or that gives insight to the show.
It’s been announced that Key & Peele star and Get Out director Jordan Peele and his Monkeypaw Productions, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Trek director J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot Productions, and Warner Bros. Television are joining forces for an HBO horror anthology series titled Lovecraft Country.
The one-hour supernatural drama series is based on the novel of the same name by author Matt Ruff, and HBO has already given the project a straight-to-series order.
If you’ve been twitching and itching at the extreme lack of new Futurama in your life these days, I have just the thing for you. Booze. Lots of booze. It helps you forget all the evil people who have repeatedly taken the show away from you while other animated series go on and on. Hell, some of those shows are old enough to drink with you.
But that’s not all (Call now and you’ll receive…). Earlier this year we found out about Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, an upcoming mobile game. Not just any mobile game, though. The original Futurama crew helped with the game, including the voice cast. That means it’s the closest thing to new episodes we currently have to look forward to.
A teaser trailer for Worlds of Tomorrow has been released online. And yes, it features brand new animated footage and voice acting to enjoy, just like we got on the show. Check it out below!
We’ve been hearing about a sequel to Jim Henson‘s The Dark Crystal for a while now, but nothing has ever come of it. But today, out of left field, Netflix has released a teaser trailer for a new prequel series titled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance…and yes, it has puppets.
The teaser begins with Henson himself talking about the original with some shots of concept art. That’s followed by some peeks at the work they’re currently doing over at Henson’s Creature Shop. And finally, a quick peek at the new series.
Continue below to watch the first teaser for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

Last week, Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) finally caught Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra), albeit too easily. The gang is in rare celebratory mode, but c’mon this is Arrow, that won’t last. The show opens with a hilarious back and forth between Quentin (Paul Blackthorne) & Mayor Queen:

The trailer looks like you’d expect a trailer for a Star Trek TV series to look, with one addition some may not be crazy about: the infamous lens flares J.J. Abrams introduced in the reboot of the movie franchise.

The Flash Season 3 Episode 22: “Infantino Street”
Directed by Michael Allowitz
Written by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Grainne Godfree
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Keiynan Lonsdale, Tom Felton
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, May 16th, 2017, 8:00pm
Last week on The Flash, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) came up with a flawed (but from the heart) plan to prevent Barry (Grant Gustin) from making new memories, so that Savitar-the-Barry-remnant wouldn’t know what it was. It was too successful. Barry and Savitar got complete amnesia. Both myself and Iris (Candice Patton) were happy to see this lighthearted Barry without all the darkness and pain, falling in love with her all over again. Unfortunately, Barry was also crucial to a court case, resulting in a firebug walking. Said firebug attacked, but Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) had no powers because Savitar never awakened them, and Barry couldn’t control his. Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) showed up to help Cisco and Julian (Tom Felton) fix the mess. They got to the Caitlin underneath. HR and Tracy (Tom Cavanagh, Anne Dudek) started falling in love. She finished the “speed force bazooka” but it needs a lot of energy… energy that is guarded by King Shark.
