Agents of SHIELD came back from a one-week hiatus last night to drop its one and only December episode on us before heading out to the hills until January. TV executives call this a "mid-season finale", but that is a nonsensical concept, so let's call it "the Christmas hiccup" instead.
'The Bridge' marks an important point in the pacing of the season. The show's creators have used this episode to tie much of the first half together and propel us into the second half. In theory it should feel momentous. In practice, I was sadly underwhelmed.
The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animatedseries. This week: Season 3 kicks off with "Out of the Past, Part One!"
If you thought it might be fun to fold up Funko's papercraft Batman, Star Wars or Iron Man 3 sets, this January might just blow your Boxos mind. Funko has announced three new additions to its Boxos brand, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Hello Kitty.
The CW’s superhero series Arrow re-imagines Green Arrow for a TV audience as a tough, often ruthless vigilante bent on setting things right in his home of Starling City by punishing the wicked. ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson will be following along to see how he fares.
This week, super powers officially become a thing on Arrow, Barry Allen makes his long-awaited first appearance, and a lot of arrows go into a lot of legs.
Following the current season of the dance/gun/dinosaur-themed Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, Toei will launch its 38th Super Sentai series, Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger. It's all about trains! Train track helmets, railroad crossing chest motifs, a giant combined train mech known as the TokkyuOh, electronic train ticket device morphers called Tokkyu Chargers -- this show looks like it's going to be the right kind off the rails.
If you've been reading ComicsAlliance for a while, then you probably already know that as soon as the calendar switches over to December, I start obsessively watching as many Christmas specials as I possibly can. Not just the big Rankin-Bass specials, either -- I do my best to watch out for the weird ones, like Christmas Comes to Pac-Land and that He-Man and She-Ra Christmas Special where Skeletor learns the true meaning of holiday magic. And every time I think I've exhausted the well of the obscure and bizarre, I end up finding something new.
Today, my (relatively) newfound love of Japanese tokusatsu shows led me to sit down with the Christmas episode of the 1971 Kamen Rider TV series, and I'll tell you right now: It's not like any holiday special I've ever seen. Largely because the title for the episode is "WEREWOLF MONSTER'S HUGE MURDER PARTY."
The original 2003-2006 Teen Titans animated series ran for 65 episodes, but for whatever reason, it never got around to a holiday episode (the closest it came was with a story in its tie-in comic book). That all changes tonight on Cartoon Network, though, as the Teen Titans Go! crew hatches a scheme to double up on holiday fun in the new "Second Christmas" episode at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT. Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Beast Boy and Starfire have so much fun this Christmas that it's hard to get back to the humdrum of winter. Inspiration strikes, however, when Starfire's otherworldly naiveté about Earth's holiday seasons inspires her friends to create a Second Christmas -- complete with a Second Santa -- in a bid to get her to deck the halls for them all over again. Get into the second holiday spirit with new clips -- including one exclusive to CA -- as well as stills from tonight's episode of Teen Titans Go! after the cut.
Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner Award-winning Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and drawn by Charlie Adlard, is underway. ComicsAlliance’s John Parker will be following along all season to see who lives, who dies, and who gets to drive a tank.
Last week, The Governor surrendered to his inner psychopath and hijacked the leadership of Team Winnebago, nabbing himself a tank. In “Too Far Gone,” he used that tank to destroy all our ridiculous notions of love and hope.
Everyone get back on the plane, it's time for another budget-saving Agents of SHIELD bottle episode! After last week's Asgardian hijinx, we're once again bouncing around between the IKEA bunks of the boring SHIELD wingycarrier.
That's the bad news. The good news is that this was the first episode to give any real time or attention to Ming-Na Wen's Agent May. But did it tell us anything we didn't already know?
It's a big month for anniversaries. Doctor Who has turned 50. Mystery Science Theater3000 is 25. One anniversary that doesn't seem to be getting as much attention is the one that might make all of us feel the oldest. The Powerpuff Girls have officially been around for 15 years, debuting on Cartoon Network on November 18, 1998. If fans count creator Craig McCracken's original "Whoopass Girls" concept that he created while in college at CalArts and debuted in 1992 as "Whoopass Stew!," though, the team is old enough to drink.
