What was Metropolis like before Superman moved to town? That’s a question that will be answered in the latest original series announced for DC Entertainment’s upcoming streaming service.
Metropolis comes from John Stephens and Danny Cannon–the producers of Gotham, which is set in a pre-Batman Gotham City–and will consist of a 13-episode first season. A synopsis from DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. TV reads, “Set in the wondrous and awe-inspiring City of Tomorrow before the arrival of Superman, Metropolis follows Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets.”

While on the surface, Metropolis sounds a lot like Gotham, there is a major difference. While Batman has yet to arrive in Gotham City on the Fox series, a young Bruce Wayne is one of the main characters. With Metropolis focussing on Lex Luthor and Lois Lane, there will likely be no Clark Kent. Of course, it’s notable that Lois is teaming with someone who will go on to become one of the biggest villains in the DC universe.
Metropolis will go into production later in the year to make a debut in 2019 on DC’s streaming service. It joins other announced series like the live-action Titans, and animated Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn series. A date for the new platform’s release has not been announced.

Rick and Morty is Adult Swim’s most scientifically accurate animated comedy.

The Big Bang Theory is a sitcom about a group of four socially awkward scientists and their (shock of all shocks) girlfriends. The level of acting and comic timing of the ensemble cast, coupled with the superb writing, makes for a winning series. In thinking about the series, it is difficult to come up with the eight funniest episodes, but here’s a good try, and they’re in no particular order.

Why do we love Arrested Development so much? Because, although it’s smart, savvy, and beautifully presented, it’s a standard three-camera sitcom at heart. And because it copies one of the major television innovations of the 21st century, reality TV. The show is shot with a single hand-held camera, with a documentary-style voiceover (which is often funnier than the characters themselves). Every scene could be executed in the classic three-camera style, complete with live studio audience and laugh track.
When culture critics look back at the television programs that were written, produced, and released over the last 20 years, they will refer to them as the Golden Age of TV.

Continue reading Fan Gear Essentials for the Best TV Shows Since 1997

There is no question that Breaking Bad is one of the greatest shows to ever grace our television screens, but, when it ended, it left a Heisenberg-shaped hole behind in our heart. Thankfully, AMC also felt this ache and created Better Call Saul.

Marvel is best known for its male superheroes. Rarely do we hear about female superheroes taking the spotlight. With the few there are, they seem to fit into a pattern: beautiful, very capable, and lacking fashion in their everyday alter egos; but, what makes a female superhero is broadening, and this is where Jessica Jones comes into play. Continue reading 9 Things We Love About Jessica Jones

If you’re familiar with the comics, there are minor differences between the TV character and the books. Nothing that changes the story substantially, though, but more of an adjustment to the reality of New York to the 21st Century.
