David Fincher Says He Almost Directed The ‘Deadwood’ Pilot
While David Fincher‘s recent career turn to television might seem surprising, those familiar with his history have always known he’s had an affinity for the small screen format. The director has an extensive list of music videos to his name, and an almost equally long list of commercials. That said, he’s certainly broken ground in the Peak TV era thanks to “House Of Cards” and now, “Mindhunter,” his latest must-see Netflix series.

Good News, Mindhunter Fans - There Are More Serial Killer Confessions on the Way
In case you haven't heard the good news, a second season of Mindhunter, Netflix's dark and gloomy (but fascinating) FBI thriller based on a true story, is officially in the works. In fact, Netflix had so much faith in the series that it renewed it for season two before season one even premiered on Friday, Oct. 13. The first season follows FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) on their mission to interview convicted serial killers like Ed Kemper and Monte Rissell to learn more about what makes them tick. Executive producer David Fincher is clearly wasting no time in preparing season two for your next Netflix binge - he already has a real-life crime lined up to explore in future episodes: the infamous Atlanta child murders. "Next year we're looking at the Atlanta child murders, so we'll have a lot more African-American music, which will be nice, »

Liv Tyler Joins Hulu's Harlots
Written, directed and produced by women, Harlots centers around two feuding brothels and the bustling sex trade in Georgian London, but in a way that flips the script on a profession shrouded by female objectification.
Tyler has been cast in the series regular role of Lady Isabella Fitzwilliam, an aristocratic social butterfly whose long-held secrets keep her in the thrall — and under the blackmailing thumb — of Lydia Quigley (played by Lesley Manville). Trapped in a loveless marriage, »

Five TV Show Reboots You Likely Forgot About
TV shows need a rest from time to time and in some cases they just need a good long rest as they fade into obscurity. This doesn’t mean they won’t be remembered, not at all, but it can mean that their first go-around was so great and so memorable that trying to recapture the magic with a new cast and a new idea would be just this side of awful. Unfortunately not everyone seems to agree with this idea and goes gung ho all the same as they try to revitalize an industry favorite without really taking into account what

Total Recall Ending: Was Quaid dreaming, or Was he actually a Secret Agent?
Opinions vary when it comes to how movies really end sometimes, but in this case Total Recall seems to indicate that Doug Quaid was in fact dreaming the entire time and is not really a secret agent. It’s kind of a heartbreaker really because you almost always pull for Arnold in his films since he’s just that awesome. But if you look through the facts it actually makes sense to think that he was stuck in a dream the entire time. Here are a few facts you might want to look at.

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers about “The Good Doctor” Episode 4 titled “Pipes.”]
Although autistic characters have been seen many times on the big screen, they’ve been seen less on TV. ABC’s freshman drama “The Good Doctor” is taking its time addressing some of the misconceptions about the autism spectrum, and in doing so has made headway in trying to foster greater understanding of how autistic people may not process the world the same way as neurotypical people.

Maintaining stories about autistic characters is a challenge that can go very wrong if done without the proper understanding, and the usual caveats should apply in discussing “The Good Doctor’s” autistic surgeon, Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore). Each autistic individual is different, and Shaun has savant syndrome as well, which adds another layer to his portrayal. Nevertheless, he does exhibit some of »

The mix of mutant action, pulse-pounding excitement and family (both found and blood) related drama makes for the perfect cocktail of an entertaining television program. The issues they face are relevant, and the mutant twist add an extra layer to a compelling series. Coming down from the action-high of the first two episodes presented a tough challenge for The Gifted. They had to find a more delicate balancing act in the third installment, because while the first two episodes were exciting, this
