26. INTERVIEW: Marc Guggenheim talks Representation in DC’s ARROW and the Marvel Universe Pleasant Hill Conspiracy

Screen Shot 2016-03-15 at 3.22.46 AMUnlike the eponymous NBC TV show, Marvel’s new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comic isn’t bound by budgets, cameos or contracts.  Series writer and Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim is using that freedom to tell an expansive, grandiose story that seeks to transform the way you experience the Marvel Universe. Following a recent editorial, Comics Beat reporter […]

27. We chat with Charlie Cox about DAREDEVIL season 2, The Punisher, and fighting in that suit

punisher daredevil elektraI've got to tell you, that guy is heavy."

30. 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.

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!

36. 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.

45. 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

48. 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:

49. 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 […]
