Though NBC had already given the verdict on most of its shows, announcing whether or not they’d been renewed for the upcoming season, the network was being conspicuously tight-lipped about Timeless’ future until today.
I wasn’t planning on watching Reverie. NBC’s crime drama about scifi dream magic is dumb summer fodder that’ll be gone before you know it. But I’m going to go there and say everyone needs to check it out. Why? Because you may never find a better example of a network taking good scifi genre television and distilling it…
NBC scifi drama Timeless got a second lease on life last year when it was revived after being briefly canceled. Now, the folks involved with Timeless say the time travel adventure’s second season will be offering a more expansive and inclusive survey of American history.
By the time the season two finale of The Good Place came around, I thought I had the show figured out, and was prepared to be pleased but not surprised by the time the episode ended. Much to my surprise, the show managed to stump me, and most of the audience, yet again. And while this latest twist was a little…
NBC’s The Good Place returned with its second mid-season premiere on Thursday, pitting architect Michael (Ted Danson) against Eleanor (Kristen Bell) and her friends. But it turns out the actor playing Chidi was first pitted against the plot itself. During the audition process, he was purposefully left in the dark…
On October 11th, President Donald Trump tweeted that if NBC was going to continue being so mean to him, he could simply have his subordinates “challenge their License,” adding that adversarial media was “Bad for country!”
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.
