When I watched Minority Report for the first time back in 2002, I absolutely loved it. It was a fast-paced, gritty, dystopian vision where freedom of choice is usurped by pre-cognitive children of drug addicts and future cops who use those visions as damning evidence.
This year’s genre television gave us high highs and low lows—sometimes on the same show! In no particular order, we’ve rounded up the year’s best moments, along with some of the absolute worst. SPOILERS AHEAD.
Doctor Who turns everything upside down. The Flash and Arrow cross over to battle Vandal Savage. Minority Report ends. Plus the live-action debut of Red Tornado! And lo, The Wiz! live on television! All this, and much, much more, on This Week’s TV!
Gravity Falls is airing its final episodes. Doctor Who is trying a strange experiment. The Walking Dead shambles off with a midseason finale, and the premiere of Regular Show: The Movie! All this, Gina Gershon, and more, on This Week’s TV!
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!…
What does this week’s TV have in store? TWO Star Wars shows! THREE zombie shows! And FOUR DC Comics superhero shows! Plus the first episode of the mysterious Agent X, and Doctor Who’s wildest cliffhanger gets resolved. All of that, in This Week’s TV!
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!
Nothing could redeem this episode of Minority Report for me. Not even the appearance of Reed Diamond, an actor who usually makes any show watchable. But Minority Report has eventually got to start dealing with its actual themes, rather than paying lip-service to them.
A blue hedgehog terrorizes the Agents of SHIELD, a man made of playing cards comes after Arrow, and a humanoid thornbush stars in Syfy’s latest original. All that, plus Maisie Williams: Dandy Highwayman, on this week’s TV!
Akeela is fast becoming a standout character on Fox’s Minority Report. And in Monday’s episode—which also guest-stars Reed Diamond from Dollhouse and Agents of SHIELD—she discovers the downside of trying to keep a secret from a clairvoyant. Check out an exclusive clip!
In “Fredi,” we got a very predictable mystery and some time with Dash. It was a totally capable episode almost too boring to recap.
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!
It looks like Minority Report is already on the chopping block. Fox cut the episode order on the TV adaptation from 13 episodes to 10, with plans to wrap up production after that. Insert requisite “You didn’t need a Precog to see this coming” joke here.
We’re three episodes into Minority Report, and it’s 100% settling into its crime procedural format. Which would be perfectly fine, if it weren’t so pleased with itself for being in the future. Spoilers ahead.
Dying to catch a glimpse of the new X-Files relaunch? A special two-part “trailer” will air Monday night during Gotham and Minority Report on Fox.
Plus there’s already speculation on the new companion too. John Boyega admits to getting teary over The Force Awakens. Game of Thrones set reports tease what’s to come in Daenerys’ story in season six. Plus, Elizabeth Olsen on the fun of Civil War, and footage of the new Flash in action on The Flash. Behold, Spoilers!
The new FOX series Minority Report debuted on Monday, and it promises to be a crazy future tech playground — though whether the plots can sustain the amazing worldbuilding remains to be seen.
It’s officially the start of fall TV season, and seven new shows are launching. But only one of them has bowled us over. Plus Gotham is back, and nuttier than ever. And how will the Doctor save Clara from the Daleks? Plus, David Tennant as the Fugitoid! All this and more, on This Week’s TV!
The Simpsons has never been afraid to travel into the future to see what’s in store for Springfield’s favorite family. They’re taking that a step further next week, premiering the 75th anniversary special during the premiere of Minority Report.
A major character from the Walking Dead comics may have just joined the show, according to set reports. Anthony Daniels hints that C-3PO has a big storyline in The Force Awakens. There’s another Batman v. Superman rumor. Plus a major status quo change on Agent Carter. Spoilers avaunt!
