Farewell to Carl Grimes Video | The Walking Dead Season 8

All The Walking Dead fans thought he was going to “beat the world,” but it did not happen that way.

Fans were left with a long wait on the renewal of the horror TV show. FOX executives were faced with their lowest rated scripted show, having a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.9 million viewers but to fans like me, it has so much potential even though the slow beginning deterred some viewers.

Legion is an Omega-level mutant meaning he has almost infinite powers and the minor problem of multiple personalities. I saw most of FX’s Legion Season 1, and I am enjoying the unusualness.

The Soska Sisters HELLEVATOR Season 2 Premiere Episode Review
GSN’s Hellevator Season 2 premieres Friday, October 7, 2016, at 9:00 pm ET/PT. We were thrilled to be granted access to watch the first episode from the new season. Hellevator is one of those TV shows that combines both horror and game show into one. The first series snuck up on me and quickly became a household favorite of mine resulting in us binge watching the entire tv show on Hulu. So I bet you are wondering my thoughts on the new season of Hellevator.

Most of the original characters will return and will cross town lines, explore the Upside Down, include at least four new characters with one called “The Lost Brother.” Check out the Stranger Things Season 2 announcement video below.

NBC’s Grimm Season 6 will premiere on January 6, 2016, with a shortened season six. Season 5 seemed to be heading to a smooth conclusion with news of the show ending with season six a little expected. It just seems natural that the show needs to end with the previous episodes somewhat entertaining besides the obvious push in action in every episode. The big question now is whether NBC will give us another horror tv series or will they give up on the genre. What do you think, is it time to end Grimm?
Wonder How Every Season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY is Connected?
Before FX’s American Horror Story Season 6 premieres on September 14, 2016, we thought you enjoy learning how all of the previous seasons are connected into one massive twisted universe.

We also see how the various characters throughout the series appear in various timelines in the AHS Universe. Tell us what do you think, do you agree with these theories and what are your theories.

TNT's TALES FROM THE CRYPT' is Expected to Air in 2017
M. Night Shymalan and TNT‘s Tales From the Crypt Season 1 is scheduled to release in the fourth quarter of 2017 as revealed by TNT and TBS President Kevin Reilly. I cannot wait to see the new format with shorts. We will not get to see The Cryptkeeper puppet however because of ownership issues (may be sorted out in time) so the shorts will not feature something as entertaining as that beloved character, he was a real highlight of the previous TV series.

Sony Cancelled Playstation's POWERS TV Series After 2 Seasons!?
It was confirmed today that Sony cancelled their first Playstation original series Powers after only 2 seasons. Season 2 of Powers ended nicely, and I was looking forward to watching Season 3 of Powers, but that is all cancelled now. Comic creator Brian Michael Bendis tweeted the fact to the Powers fanbase. Bendis leaves it open that Powers might find a new life somewhere else, but we know chances are slim for all the moving parts to fit the same again. That being said, I am still hooked on the show so I would watch the continuation if there is ever one. Sony screwed itself by locking the show behind their Playstation Network and subscription plans. I remember looking everywhere to rewatch the Powers Season 1 episodes again before the Powers Season 2 premiered but had an extremely hard time finding it. I did find it on Sony’s other streaming service Crackle. However, the quality was horrible, and the ads were too frequent, Sad news indeed for those of us who invested in the TV series and the story.

New Official Poster for The Exorcist TV Series
We are hoping that Fox’s The Exorcist TV Series delivers as a TV adaptation of the popular The Exorcist (1973) movie directed by William Friedkin and based on the screenplay and novel by William Peter Blatty. The new official poster looks creepy and after early pilot reviews from the San Diego Comic-Con 2016 saying that the episode was very slow, the poster needs a little more. Fingers are crossed that we will get a well-developed The Exorcist Season 1 premiering on September 23, 2016.

PREACHER Season 1 - First 5 Minutes of Season Finale
As AMC’s Preacher Season 1 comes to a close, here is the first 5 minutes of the season finale episode titled “Call and Response.” Shame they not get picked up for more episodes this season, I would have liked to have seen more from this point on as Jesse Custer, Tulip, Cassidy set out on the road in search of finding God.

That is wonderful news as the series captures the awesome of the 80’s style while keeping it modern for younger viewers. My children were humming along to the classic songs from the 80’s in the show. It brought back so many wonderful memories from the 80’s and made my children ask, were the 80’s really that fun? The ending from the show marked that the first season was just a wonderful stepping stone into what could develop into an even greater experience.
