In case you were worried that Heroes Reborn would continue after its January 21 finale—and lord knows I was—you may now breathe a sigh of relief that Tommy the Teleporting Boy, Chuck on Fire, Rejected ‘90s Sega Mascot Samurai Girl will no longer darken your TV screen.
This year is full of great science fiction and fantasy TV series. Actually, 2016 is too full. Seriously, check out how long this list of new, returning and potentially premiering shows due out over the next 12 months is. When are we going to get a chance to leave the house and watch all those great movies, or read all…
This week, things start to get back to normal! Supergirl, Limitless, Teen Wolf, American Horror Story, Heroes Reborn, Reign, and Nova all return! The Shannara Chronicles, based on Terry Brooks’ fantasy novels, debuts! Plus a full week of Steven Universe, and a couple excellent insect movies! It’s all on This Week’s TV.
The fall finale of Heroes Reborn has come and gone, and it’s left us with some major revelations—and some confusion. Mostly confusion. I mean, I’ve spent the entire season wondering if the show would have answers for all the mysteries the show has posed, but I forgot to ask an equally important question: Will those…
Jessica Jones comes to Netflix, Man in the High Castle streams on Amazon, and Marceline the Vampire Queens gets her own four-part miniseries on Adventure Time! A deadly Grant Morrison character swoops in on Gotham, a Jim Henson project is thawed in time for Thanksgiving, and Clara’s future is revealed on Doctor Who!…
Hey, remember how in the last two episodes, Hiro kept fussing at HRG to not change things while they were hanging out in the past, and HRG kept screwing with the timeline anyways? Well, turns out Hiro was right, and now everyone on the planet is dead (or at least will be shortly). Thanks for nothing, Noah.
Let me be the first one to admit when I was wrong. Last week, after several story-less, entertainment-less episodes in a row, I assumed that like its forebear, Heroes Reborn was just making shit up as it went along. But “July 12: Part II” actually gave us some answers, and impressively, many of them are actually…
“June 13—Part One” is about Hiro taking HRG back to a year ago, the day of Claire’s death and the Unity Summit explosion, ostensibly for HRG to get some answers. As the two arrive at the Summit thanks to Hiro’s time-traveling powers, they discuss how they need to find Claire and figure out who or what destroys the…
Yes, Ash vs. Evil Dead and Supergirl are making their debuts at last. Plus Bones and Sleepy Hollow are crossing over! Lexi Alexander directs Arrow! George R.R. Martin becomes a zombie! People are getting buried alive! And this week’s television includes tons and tons of Halloween excitement!
Goddammit, Heroes Reborn. I gave you the benefit of the doubt. You hurt me—not just failed to entertain me, not just insulted me as a viewer, but emotionally hurt me—for three of your four original seasons, and I still tuned in, thinking “Oh, it’s been five years, Surely he’s changed!” You haven’t.
Rachel McAdams may be playing a version of Night Nurse in Doctor Strange—but not the one you expected. Rosario Dawson joins Lego Batman. Will the new X-Men show Legion tie into the films? Plus, sneak peeks at tonight’s Gotham and Blindspot, and set pictures from Kong: Skull Island. Behold, Spoilers!
Hey, remember all that potential I said that Heroes Reborn had two weeks ago after the third episode? Well, I don’t think I was technically wrong, but I do think Heroes Reborn has managed to squander most of it over the last two episodes.
This week, we say goodbye to the beloved time-travel TV show Continuum. But also, Gotham follows up that shocking twist, Doctor Who features a Game of Thrones stalwart, and LEGO Star Wars takes us aboard the Falcon. It’s all happening in this week’s television!
George Miller says he already has scripts for two Mad Max films. A legendary artist is designing Star Wars: Episode VIII. Felicity will be funnier in Arrow season four. Fear The Walking Dead will never cross over with the main series. Plus, teasers for Doctor Who and iZombie. So Many Spoilers!
Let’s hope so! We’ll get our first clue as to whether The Flash can avoid the dreaded Sophomore Slump this week. Also, Arrow is lightening up. Lady Gaga comes to American Horror Story! Also: Doctor Who gets spooky, and Peter MacNichol returns to Agents of SHIELD. It’s a thrilling week of television!
Of course, the original Heroes series also used to have potential, once upon a time. So even as I watched the reboot’s third episode, “Under the Mask,” and thought, “You know, if these mysteries actually have decent answers, Heroes Reborn will have been pretty solid!” Then I remembered that answering mysteries has…
Here’s the good news: In the pantheon of Heroes television, Heroes Reborn is actually all right. It wasn’t nearly as gripping as the original show’s zeitgeist-grabbing first season, but it also wasn’t as terrible and/or boring as the show’s godawful second, third, and fourth seasons.
James Gunn confirmed yet another Avenger who won’t show up in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Yet another major Batman villain is coming to Gotham. Plus, Martian viral videos, a funnier Vision in Civil War, Wesley Snipes on Blade’s future, and Dalek-table new Doctor Who pictures. So many Spoilers!
Agents of SHIELD is calling an Asgardian for help. Colin Trevorrow talks Jurassic World 2. Another Game of Thrones star denies the return of a character from the dead. Plus, Ben McKenzie talks Gotham’s lighter second season, new footage from The Good Dinosaur, and more. To Me, My Spoilers!
