Free STARZ This Weekend + Extra Content For Less With Sling TV
DwayneD   |  @   |  

Sling TV

Sling TV really wants to be your favorite cord-cutting service. It’s spent the last couple of years getting itself on not just Roku, but FireTV and Apple TV (4th generation) for $20 a month with no contract, which is a pretty incredible feat in this Comcast, Time warner, Optimum world. The Meridian, Colorado-based company has been pushing interesting promotions all month long in celebration of SlingTV’s birthday month. What better way to “pull a hobbit” and give gifts for your b-day than to hook geeks up with content.

Last weekend, Sling TV gave their Blue and Orange users free access to HBO’s online content library just long enough for them to take in new series like Big Little Lies and Crashing. This weekend, Sling TV is opening up the Internet tubes to allow their subscribers unlimited access to STARZ, the premium cable network that brought us the smash hit time-traveling period drama, Outlander, based on the novels by author Diana Gabaldon. STARZ is also responsible for Black Sails, a period pirate drama for those looking for a bit more substance than the swashbucklers in Disney’s high-seas franchise.

Washington was scheduled to hang as a traitor, but Mick, Nate, and Amaya (Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Maisie Richardson-Sellers) saved the day. Sarah (Caity Lotz) almost died when she was shot and Rip choked her, and the ship was offline. Stein (Victor Garber) tried to save her, as Jax (Franz Drameh) tried to defend the ship and the piece of Spear. Sarah was saved, but the spear was taken. Nate and Amaya became more than just friends.

Legion 103 Header

Episode 1.3 “Chapter 3”
Written by Peter Calloway
Directed by Michael Uppendahl
Created by Noah Hawley & Stan Lee
Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart
FX Network
Air date: February 22nd, 2017

Last week on FX’s newest great series Legion, David Haller (Dan Stevens) had “memory work” done to investigate his childhood and help remember where and when his powers started. He is beginning to settle into his new life at Summerland with his “hands off” girlfriend Syd (Rachel Keller), psychic “memory artist” Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris) and memories of his dead best friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza). He is still haunted by demons from his past, like the Devil with Yellow Eyes, and threats to his future, like the mysterious The Eye (Mackenzie Gray) who has his sister (Katie Aselton). Despite all the complexities of David’s world and the eccentric characters, the star of this series is the style and substance of the world created by Noah Hawley and director Michael Uppendahl. Legion does not at all feel like your typical Marvel product, or any other superhero show on television. It is a mind melting explosion of originality, one of the freshest feeling new shows of 2017 thus far.

Spoilers below for tonight’s episode of Legion:

Jamie Chung in Gotham

It’s fair to say that Fox expanding the X-Men franchise to TV has been a success. Following the hit Legion, the studio will be releasing an untitled X-Men series from creator Matt Nix (Burn Notice). The show will focus on a family with children who have mutant powers, who are on the run and encounter an underground network of mutants who will protect them from a government agency.

The first to be cast was Blair Redford, who will play Sam, the leader of the underground mutant network. Now he will be joined by Jamie Chung, who will play Clarice Fong, aka Blink, a mutant that we first saw in X-Men: Days of Future Past. More on the story below.

New ‘Rick and Morty’ Song Released While We Wait For Season 3
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Rick and Morty

We’re still awaiting word on when we might get to see season three of Adult Swim’s animated comedy Rick and Morty. And that’s fine. As I’ve said in the past, I can be patient for a show like this. I’d much rather it take an unbearably long time for a new season to arrive and have it be as brilliant as the first two seasons were, than have a mediocre show with a few good episodes already four or five seasons in.

While we pace around, ignoring all life responsibilities until we know for sure when Rick and Morty is returning, a new video has been released sharing a previously unheard song. You can check it out below.

James Delaney (Tom Hardy) is trying desperately to get out of 1814 London with with a supply of gunpowder, so he can sail to Nootka Sound and trade with the Chinese. Standing in his way is greedy American Dumbarton (Michael Kelly), who blackmails him for his entire payload of powder. Add to this, what he truly desires more than anything is his half sister Zilpha (Oona Chaplin). She, in the best scene in the entire series, dispatched of her abusive husband Thorne (Jefferson Hall), and went to James only for him to nearly strangle her in a bizarre sexual encounter, that was interrupted by visions of his native mother. His visions take an even worse turn when a drunken stumbling Delaney wakes up next to the dead body of Winter (Ruby-May Martinwood), the daughter of Helga (Franka Potente) who was a member of his “League of the Damned” but now may prove his biggest threat. Helga, the East India Company, the Americans, and the Crown… all are after James Delaney as we enter the penultimate episode of Taboo.

Air Date: Tuesday, February 21st, 2017, 8:00pm

Two weeks ago on The Flash, the meta of the day was one that Alchemy aka Julian (Tom Felton) had awakened. His touch had the ability to cause matter to disintegrate, and people to decompose to ash. That meta, Clive Yorkin (Matthew Kevin Anderson), went after cops that collared him in Flashpoint. He touched Iris (Candice Patton) to hurt Joe West (Jesse L. Martin). Barry (Grant Gustin) figured that out, so Cisco (Carlos Valdes) vibed there to find the next target. Yorkin caused a train full of people to be in danger, so Barry vibed the whole train safely through, leaving Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) to vibe (for the first time) through Yorkin with a neutralizer.
