In its first season on CBS, SUPERGIRL was a light and airy show that featured lots of “Girl Power!” that was a nice alternative to the more testosterone heavy fare on the other DC shows that were airing on Fox and The CW. With the move to The CW in its 2nd season I was pretty excited since that meant crossovers with ARROW, THE FLASH AND LEGENDS OF TOMORROW would be much easier to get done than they were when SUPERGIRL was on another network. And that was proven by just how enjoyable the “Invasion” crossover turned out to be. But aside from that blip of awesome, the 2nd season of SUPERGIRL has been a chore to get through and since I am the type of guy who likes to share my opinion…click onward to find out exactly why SUPERGIRL really does suck now.
Whenever an actor leaves the role of The Doctor on DOCTOR WHO the speculation about who will be the replacement actor reaches a serious fever pitch. Since Peter Capaldi made it known that he would be leaving the role the gossip has tagged everyone from Tilda Swinton to Chiwetal Ejiofor as the next Doctor. Just this past week alone there have been “breaking news” stories claiming that has been filled already. First up being reported as the new Doctor was Kris Marshall (finally a ginger!) known for his roles in the film LOVE ACTUALLY and the TV show DEATH IN PARADISE but that bit of “news” was quickly followed-up with the breaking report that CHEWING GUM creator and star Michaela Coel was going to be the 13th Doctor. So basically all reports are just rubbish gossip and the role is still waiting to be filled. With that in mind I present to you my own picks for who I think would make wonderful additions to the list of actors who have played the role of The Doctor.
It’s the 20th anniversary of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER the TV show and with that in mind I got to thinking about listsicle after listicle I could write like I was a Buzzfeed staffer. And lo and behold, my first list is about the most controversial aspect of Buffy fandom: which of her leading men was the best guy for our Slayer.

So I did a “The Best Looking Fall TV Shows” post the other day so it only makes sense that I do a post for which shows look pretty terrible from their trailer/preview clips. Now this doesn’t mean that these show will actually be bad because in previous years a couple of the shows that I thought looked pretty awful ended up securing spots on my weekly DVR list. That doesn’t change the fact that as afar as first impressions go these shows are not putting their best foot forward.
The fall TV season is almost upon us and as a result the networks are revealing more and more of their line-ups so I figured I would take a gander at some of the trailers being put out for public consumption and see which ones hook me based on their 2 to 5 minutes of video. In the long run I may end up hating all of these shows but for right now these are the best looking shows based on just trailers.
It has been 2 years since the last time I wrote about my hate-watching habit and try as I might I still can’t seem to get this monkey off my back. Sure most of the shows I was hate-watching have mercifully gone to the TV show graveyard in the sky yet other shows have popped up to fill that hole in my soul that only a good hate-watch can satisfy.

Z NATION is back and I couldn’t be happier. For a show that started out as something I had no intention of even watching to become one of the most entertaining shows I watch is really saying something. There were times during Season 1 where I would have given the nod to Z NATION over THE WALKING DEAD as far as being a more enjoyable trip through the zombie apocalypse. So I was totally geeked up to see the Season 2 premier (aptly titled “The Murphy”) and the fine folks at Asylum didn’t fail to impress with the over-the-top zombie fuckery.
