26. Newly named Comic-Con HQ SVOD channel rolls out on May 7

Last year, Lionsgate and the San Diego Comic-Con announced a joint venture to launch a SVOD (subscription video-on-demand) channel themed to all things nerd and con. Now they've just announced that a free beta of the service, named Comic-Con HQ, will roll out on May 7th (Free Comic Book Day). Plans for programing include including original scripted and unscripted programming, such as Kings of Con, a show based on the Her Universe fashion line, and an interview series with Adam Sessler, The ad-free service will also offer programming from Comic-Con's archives, and that should be an eye opener for comics historians.

30. Our theory on THE FLASH’s Zoom (and the man in the mask)

The Flash -- "Enter Zoom" -- Image FLA206A_0378b.jpg -- Pictured (L-R): Zoom and Grant Gustin as The Flash -- Photo: Dean Buscher/The CW -- © 2015 The CW Network, LLC. All rights reserved.This week, The Flash closed out a two-parter in which Barry, Harrison Wells, and Cisco travel to Earth 2 to help Wells save his daughter from Zoom. These episodes have sparked even more interest and theories about Zoom's true identity, which will likely remain a mystery until at least the season finale. Spoiler alert - read no further unless you are completely caught up with this season!

31. The trailer for DAREDEVIL Season 2 will make you wish it was March already

daredevilcostumeMoralities collide between Matt Murdock and Frank Castle in this newly released Daredevil Season 2 trailer. While the promo mostly focuses on the conflict between the two, with The Punisher taking some inspiration from the actions of Daredevil, make sure you watch the whole thing for a quick glimpse of the other big character debuting […]

32. Five superhero shows put to the Bechdel test; only one fails

theflashLast week, fellow Beat writer Alex Jones wrote this article about the TV show Arrow and it's treatment of female characters. I don't really follow Arrow, so I can't say whether I agree with his assessment. But the premise got me thinking about whether any of these shows could pass the Bechdel test, i.e. the new standard for fictional female characters.

41. One MIllion Moms objects to Lucifer hitting the all you can eat breadsticks at Olive Garden

Hm, a TV show called Lucifer. I was wondering when someone would object to a network TV show named after Satan, and sure enough One Million Moms took up the challenge: FOX’s new drama “Lucifer” is spiritually dangerous. The new program “Lucifer” glorifies Satan as a caring, likable person in human flesh. The character Lucifer […]

42. Lucifer follows the X-Files to a strong debut amid a flood of comics-based TV shows

It seems the new run of X-Files has been a hit. (It seems wrong to call it a relaunch or a reboot since it's the same show with the same cast and credits, just after a 14 year absence.) Last night's second episode paved the way for a strong debut for Lucifer, the new show based on the Vertigo comic. (Haven't watched it yet but it's on my hard drive.) X-Files is airing in Gotham's spot for the next few weeks, and did better than that show:

47. Gathered Round a Roaring Television, Part 1

I didn't write anything about the fall TV season this (last) year, because frankly, it was too dismal and boring to write anything about, and anything I could have said would have just joined the chorus of thinkpieces lamenting the networks' inability to produce anything resembling worthwhile new shows.  But here we are in winter, with the network shows on break or just coming out of it, and

49. Gathered Round a Roaring Television, Part 2

It took ten days (all year!) but I'm finally done with the backlog of TV that I let build up over December while I was busy with other things.  And once again, all of these shows, good and bad, are infinitely more interesting than what the networks were cranking out in the fall.  Though it must be said that along with these miniseries and SyFy series, I also watched several network pilots--such
