On the surface, last night's episode of Agents of SHIELD was about "facing reality" — something both Coulson and Fitz were grappling with. But on a deeper level, the (super funny) episode was about how the two men are both severely damaged. And the question of how far you can trust yourself, much less your friends.

Remember that realism-tinged Mortal Kombat pitch film that wowed the internet last summer? It's not going to be a feature-length movie, but Warner Premiere has green-lit a 10-episode web series starring Michael Jai White as Major Jackson "Jax" Briggs.
If David Fincher had directed Mortal Kombat the movie, we bet it would have looked just like this. This is a seriously disturbing reimagining of the Kombat crew. Well done.
