Arrow Season 7 Premiere: Showrunner Explains That Massive Cliffhanger

Arrow is back, and that Season 7 premiere sure dropped a bombshell. There was a lot happening in the episode, between Oliver (Stephen Amell) stuck in jail, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and William (Jack Moore) being attacked by Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo), and a mysterious new Green Arrow making things difficult for the rest of the team to move on with their lives. However, none of that had quite the impact of the final moments of the episode.

Through the installment, titled "Inmate #4587," viewers were treated to what looked like a new set of flashbacks to Lian Yu, the island that was blown up in the Season 5 finale. The first five years of Arrow relied heavily on flashbacks to fill in the blanks of Oliver's life, but after Lian Yu was destroyed, that way of telling the story was over--or was it?

In this new flashes, another young man arrives on Lian Yu in search of something, before eventually stumbling upon the grave of Robert Queen, Oliver's father. In the end, it was revealed these weren't flashbacks. Instead, these were flashforwards to the year 2040. The young man in question is Oliver's son William, now an adult played by Ben Lewis (The Handmaid's Tale).

Netflix's Haunting Of Hill House Is Worth Watching To The End

Netflix's Haunting Of Hill House Is Worth Watching To The End

Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House is available now on Netflix, so you can start streaming whenever you want. Keep reading if you want to know what we thought of the full 10-episode season.

Horror movies often save their biggest scares for the latter half, building up tension before exploding into all out terror. Extrapolate that over 10 hour-long episodes, and you have Netflix's newest horror show, The Haunting of Hill House. It makes for some fantastically scary final episodes and a relatively slow early half. If you can get invested in the Cranes' family drama, it's worth sticking through.

Armello Review - Nintendo Switch Update

Armello Review - Nintendo Switch Update

[Editor's Note: We have updated this review to reflect our experiences with Armello's Nintendo Switch version]

Armello's hybrid of tactics, dice-rolling, and political intrigue has aged better than expected in the three years since its release, and on Nintendo Switch, the game is almost as formidable as it is on PC. Its charming blend of animal kingdom hijinks and turn-based strategy gameplay has yet to be replicated by a newer, flashier title; Armello has definitely held up well, and its uniqueness is undeniable. However, there are a few major differences between PC version and Switch releases, and not all of them are positive.

The most important distinction is the fact that the Switch version includes all of Armello's DLC content. The Complete Edition of the game includes a bunch of morally-grey heroes, seasonal effects, and a whole new clan to contend with. While the base game has a fair amount of material to keep you occupied, a criticism of the launch content was that particular victory styles were incentivized over others. At their core, the DLC packs attempt to address that by expanding your potential champion pool with heroes that operate very differently from the original ones in the base game.

AHS Apocalypse's Cody Fern On Being TV's Sexiest Antichrist

AHS Apocalypse's Cody Fern On Being TV's Sexiest Antichrist

Fans seem to agree: American Horror Story's Michael Langdon, played expertly by Cody Fern, is TV's sexiest Antichrist. That may be a relatively small category, but there's no denying Langdon's allure. When we got the chance to speak with Fern about the role, we couldn't help but ask him: How does it feel to be anointed as a sex symbol?

"Oh, I don't know what to think about that," he said, chuckling. "I don't have a Twitter, but I do find--people have read things out to me, and I do find them alarming and funny and generous. I can't think about that stuff, you know, because I'm just doing what I'm doing, and how people are receiving it is how they're receiving it."

However, Fern admitted that he "built a lot of sexuality into Langdon." He said he and Sarah Paulson, who plays three different characters and also directed an episode this season, discovered that side of his character together.

What We Do In The Shadows TV Show Captures The Original Movie's Magic

What We Do In The Shadows TV Show Captures The Original Movie's Magic

Those who know of What We Do in the Shadows probably think of the 2014 cult hit mockumentary about a brood of oddball vampires wrestling with typical roommate drama like who should do the dishes and how to gobble down human blood without making a mess in the living room. Ten years before that, it was a short film that Jemaine Clement claims was made for about $200.

Before that, as Clement and his co-creator Taika Waititi revealed today at New York Comic Con 2018, the idea was born as a stand up comedy routine in which one of them told bad vampire jokes ("I just flew in from Transylvania and boy are my arms tired!") and the other heckled him, also as a vampire, until they recognized one another as centuries-long rivals. Now, it's FX's latest comedy show, and based on the pilot episode--which screened exclusively during NYCC on Sunday--What We Do in the Shadows is perfect for fans.

(Disclaimer: The pilot episode screened at NYCC was reportedly unfinished, and this is not a review of the final program.)

about X hours ago from

HBO struck ratings gold with Game of Thrones, which was adapted from George R.R. Martin's famously unfinished book series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Now Syfy is getting in on the action with its own GRRM adaptation, Nightflyers. We got the chance to see the first episode at New York Comic Con 2018, so click here to find out what we thought.

Regarding Nightflyers' release, the sci-fi thriller will get its 10-episode first season in December, but on top of the traditional TV air dates, Syfy will also be releasing all of the episodes to stream online for a limited time--with a catch.

Collider reports that when the series premieres on Sunday, December 2, the first five episodes will also become available across Syfy's streaming platforms. Those will only be available through Thursday, December 6, and then the second half of the season will stream between December 9-13.

The upcoming Arrow-verse crossover keeps getting more interesting. First, it was announced that Batwoman (Ruby Rose) would be introduced in the three-show event, with the first look at her costume offering a potentially exciting addition to The CW's superhero universe. Additionally, it was announced that not only would Tyler Hoechlin reprise his role as Clark Kent/Superman, but that Grimm alum Elizabeth Tulloch would appear as Lois Lane.

The good crossover news doesn't end there, though. Now the event is actually filming, which means set photos are starting to make their way online care of the shows' casts. Thanks to the Green Arrow himself, Stephen Amell, fans have gotten an interesting look at Superman. Amell posted a photo of himself, alongside Hoechlin and Grant Gustin (The Flash). Hoechlin, though, isn't wearing the traditional red and blue Superman costume. Instead, he's wearing a black suit.

There's A New Devil In This Daredevil Season 3 Trailer

Now that Netflix has canceled Iron Fist, and we've gotten a firsthand look at Daredevil Season 3 in all its glory, our hype for the original Netflix-Marvel universe show is higher than ever.

After a couple of intriguing teasers, the full trailer for Daredevil Season 3 is here. The third season of Netflix's Marvel series hits the streaming service in its entirety on October 19 and will focus on the bloody conflict between Matt Murdock and the villainous Wilson Fisk.

The trailer reveals that Fisk has struck a deal to get out of prison early, and he clearly has one thing on his mind--revenge. We see Murdock back in the simple black costume from Season 1, but the trailer also reveals that he is being framed for some violent crimes by another man dressed in the more familiar red Daredevil costume. Check it out above.
