NBC’s The Good Place premiered last year and immediately swanned off with all my good will. It’s a show that is riotously funny, with great characters and a completely unique setting. You absolutely should be watching it when its second season premieres tonight.
Sad news, fans of the Warrior Princess—the modern revival of Xena is no longer happening. In the wake of original showrunner Javier Grillo-Marxuach’s (The Middleman) departure, NBC has decided to close the book on a new Xena show... for now, at least.
Stephen Amell, better known as Green Arrow from CW’s Arrow, proved he’s not just cosplaying as a powerful vigilante... he’s a true American Ninja Warrior.
Talk about changing your fate! NBC has changed course and saved Timeless from cancellation, giving it another season to air sometime in 2018.
Person of Interest’s Sarah Shahi is headlining NBC’s latest series order, a scifi thriller about a woman tasked with rescuing users who are trapped in an addictive, immersive VR program. At least she already has experience working with advanced, sinister technologies, right?
Last year it felt like every TV show was about time travel, with network series Making History, Time After Time, Timeless, and Frequency, plus a few others peppered around the dial and streaming. But three of those new time-travel shows have since bitten the dust, with a fourth likely soon to follow.
When summer comes, it brings with it lazy days in the sun and kids free of school. It also brings a slew of TV shows, perfect for watching when it’s too hot to leave the air conditioning (which is most of the time). Here’s the io9 guide to everything our beloved nerdy genres are putting up this year.
Now that Powerless has been on the air for a few weeks, a nagging suspicion that I’ve had has grown into a full-fledged conspiracy theory: Powerless takes place in the future of Gotham.
After writing and filming one version of its pilot (and showing it at Comic-Con), the people behind DC Comics’ Powerless decided to completely revamp the show. That means that the new first episode, which aired last night, had a ton of major changes from the original—and here’s what they were.
This is from the opening shot of the DC sitcom Powerless, which premiered last night. I’d love to have President Lex Luthor right now. At least he’s smart.
If you haven’t been watching The Good Place, you have been missing out. And now you have even more of a reason to binge the show: to catch up before season two premieres.
Witchblade is coming to TV... again. Image’s supernatural comic series has a new show planned for NBC from the team behind Vampire Diaries, and someone out there is hoping the golden age of comic book TV can mean that the second (technically, third) time’s a charm for detective Sara Pezzini.
The season finale of The Good Place consisted of two back-to-back episodes last night. The first was the usual funny but weird look at morality. The “medium” place was so perfect that it’s actually a shame it got completely overshadowed by what happened in the second, final episode.
It honestly feels like NBC’s DC show Powerless is throwing everything to the wall to see if any of it survives cancellation. The latest twist: Bruce Wayne has a cousin now.
Powerless used to be about a young woman working at an insurance company in the DC universe, catering to bystanders caught up in superpowered brawls. But then its premise underwent a major re-working, and now a new TV spot for the show shows us just how different it is.
NBC’s Powerless altered its office environment to better tie it into the DC Universe, but a seemingly innocent relocation will change Bruce Wayne from a beloved billionaire into that Monorail guy from The Simpsons.
In The Good Place, Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) is a woman who dies and goes to the titular afterlife, a quaint paradise that is almost perfect—except for the fact Eleanor is a terrible person who has arrived there by mistake. It’s an unusual plot for a primetime sitcom, even more so since The Good Place also…
Billy Bush no longer works at Today. We’ve known this for days. But an action NBC took on Thursday marked the final nail in the coffin of Bush’s time on the show. It was more definitive than his own written statement and even louder than the words spoken by his former coworkers: his removal from the Today iMessage…
Police procedurals and crime dramas have been done to death at this point, yet TV networks keep grinding ’em out, raising the stakes every season with high-concept set-ups that have started to veer into the surreal. Are you ready for Oliver Twist with a twist? How about Oliver Twist’s twist with a twist too?
