Doctor Who: Every Doctor Explained

Doctor Who: Every Doctor Explained

Note: With the eleventh season (or series, depending on what you like to call it) of Doctor Who on its way, and with a new female Doctor making her debut at San Diego Comic-Con this week, we figured this was a great time to look back at this Guide to All the Doctors. Doctor Who has never been more popular. While Peter Capaldi finished his run as the traveling Time Lord with last year’s Season 10 and his final Christmas Special, that very same special also gave us our first look at the new Doctor: Jodie Whittaker, who will be the first female Doctor (the Thirteenth Doctor overall)! So what better time to take a look back at all the Doctors from the show’s 50-plus year history? We’re going to tell you about each incarnation in chronological order, explaining why every Doctor is awesome and worthy of your attention! (For even more on the show, check out our Intro to Doctor Who right here.) Continue reading…

Justice League: Warner Bros. Won't Release a Zack Snyder Cut

Justice League: Warner Bros. Won't Release a Zack Snyder Cut

After months of speculation, Warner Bros. has revealed whether or not there will be a Zack Snyder cut of Justice League. A Warner Bros. senior executive confirmed to The Wall Street Journal there are no plans to release an alternate version of the DC ensemble movie at San Diego Comic-Con. Snyder was also contacted, but the director declined to comment. Back in 2017, Snyder had to step down from production on Justice League following a personal tragedy, with Joss Whedon taking over as director. A few months later in September of 2017, Snyder opened up about why he was keeping his distance from Justice League, saying he wasn’t worried about how the movie was shaping up. Continue reading…

Comcast Drops Out of 21st Century Fox Bidding War with Disney

Comcast Drops Out of 21st Century Fox Bidding War with Disney

The Walt Disney Company’s $71.3 billion offer for 21st Century Fox looks poised to go through. That’s because telecom behemoth Comcast Corporation has pulled out of its bidding war with Disney for control of Fox. CNBC, which is itself owned by Comcast, first reported the news today. The report indicates that Comcast’s decision is in part so that it can refocus on its acquisition attempts of UK telecom company Sky, which Fox itself has been competing with Comcast to acquire. Fox already owns 39 percent of Sky and has offered $32.5 billion for the other 61, while Comcast has recently bid $34 billion for that same stake. Continue reading…

A Beginner’s Guide to Doctor Who

A Beginner’s Guide to Doctor Who

Note: With the eleventh season (or series, depending on what you like to call it) of Doctor Who on its way, and with a new female Doctor making her debut at San Diego Comic-Con this week, we figured this was a great time to look back at this Guide to All the Doctors. Your friends keep talking about Doctor Who, that amazing British sci-fi show with the alien guy and his time-traveling Police Box (no, not a phone booth, but it sort of looks like one). Now you’ve finally decided to check it out. You’re worried about whether you’ll be expected to wear a scarf or a fez, and then you discover this show has been in existence – in one form or another – for over 50 years! Sure it’s overwhelming, but don’t let that deter you! There’s a whole universe of adventure waiting (most available on DVD, to say nothing of audio dramas, comics, novels, and more), and with all that history there are a multitude of great places to jump in and join the journey. Yes, there are some silly-looking creatures or cheesy effects, but the show has always focused on strong storytelling and indelible character. So ignore the occasional bubble wrap monsters; after all, Doctor Who is the most successful science fiction TV show of all time (sorry, Star Trek). It even won an Institutional Peabody Award for its exceptional ability to evolve – regenerate? – with the times. Let’s get you started, and you’ll be discussing the details of Dalek timelines and TARDIS technology in no time at all! And yes, you’ll probably be wearing a scarf AND a fez…but they’re cool, so don’t worry. Continue reading…

Outcast is Back: Robert Kirkman on the Bigger Body Snatcher Scope of Season 2

Outcast is Back: Robert Kirkman on the Bigger Body Snatcher Scope of Season 2

More than two years after production wrapped on the second season, Outcast is finally returning to Cinemax – on Friday, July 20th (though Season 2 already aired for audiences overseas). Back in spring of 2016, I visited the set of this horrific exorcism series, based on Robert Kirkman’s comics, while they were shooting episode 208 and spoke to Kirkman and the cast about the new dangers and expanding scope of the show. Note: With the second season of this expensive-to-make series sitting on the shelf for so long, and the options on the cast having lapsed a long time ago, the future for Outcast doesn’t look great. HBO and Cinemax’s programming head Kary Antholis said that they’d be open to conversations about bringing it back, but many co-production opportunities would probably have to arise to make it feasible.
