Moderately-received though it may have been, Sony PlayStation original Powers nonetheless continues to pull some impressive casting. Following last year’s coup of Sharlto Copley in the leading role, Tarantino favorite Michael Madsen has joined Powers Season 2 in the key role of aptly-titled superhero “SuperShock.”

Agents of SHIELD made its return to TV screens last night for its third season, and our first impression is that it's already a much-improved show. But there's always room for a second --- or third --- opinion, so we're kicking off a brand new format for Agents of Something, our regular post-show analysis of the latest Agents of SHIELD episode.
We've invited two CA contributors, Ziah Grace and Chris Haley, to share their thoughts about the show. Neither of them have been keeping up with the agents 'til now, so they'll offer a fresh new perspective, and they'll probably have quite a few questions...
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' gets Inhuman-ly good in its most confident, ambitious premiere yet. Our full review, plus answers to Simmons' fate from tonight's premiere, "Laws of Nature"!
Apart from a few peeks at Zoom and Jay Garrick, The Flash has kept most of its major Season 2 spoilers under wraps in advance of next week’s premiere. Now, however, a new look brings with it a major spoiler for Legends of Tomorrow, and could well spell doom for a Flash friend ahead.
It feels like I've said this somewhere before, but Power Rangers is arguably the most successful live-action superhero franchise of all time. It's been running virtually uninterrupted since 1993, and this week, it's about to hit a major milestone. "Sync or Swim," the episode airing on Saturday, isn't just the 13th episode of the current season, Dino Charge --- it's the 800th episode of the series.
To mark the occasion, we've got an exclusive clip of the episode featuring a team-up between the Gold Ranger and the Red Ranger, and as someone who has actually watched all 800 episodes, I am almost positive that they're celebrating with the show's first-ever use of the phrase "stinking scallywag."
The Flash Season 2 never quite wound up a full trailer the way Arrow opted for Season 4, but has still afforded plenty of looks at its new adventures. That said, a new promo offers the most tantalizing tidbit yet, as we finally get a look at “demon speedster” big bad Zoom, as voiced by Tony Todd himself.
Buildup toward the Arrow Season 4 trailer gave us plenty to chew on once The CW unveiled Oliver’s next quest for Star City, but even more footage joins the quiver with a week to go. Meet Echo Kellum’s Mr. Terrific, along with glimpses of Damien Darhk and Hawkman in a new full-length Arrow Season 4 preview!
Being mixed race is an endless, exhausting lesson in liminality. There are days you’re unshakably confident in who you are and your place in the world, followed by days you are wrecked by the ambiguity of your existence. Genetic caprice digs gulfs of experience between cousins, siblings, even twins. “Authenticity” is a bullseye you never quite seem to hit. And when immigration enters into it — well. You can be certain of disappointing everyone back in the old country just as often as you disappoint the community that surrounds you.
Perhaps the worst part of it is the silence. Maybe you have a few friends to discuss this with. Maybe your siblings get it. Maybe you’ve found one treasured piece of media that speaks to the shade of grey in which you live. But in total, there isn’t much that portrays this experience — and even less of it accessible to a wider audience.
Enter Steven Universe.
Whatever your take on Fear The Walking Dead, it at least offers some intrigue that AMC will air snippets of a one-off special during The Walking Dead Season 6, one character of which will join the “companion series” in Season 2. Now, AMC has firmed up details of the Flight 462 special, also providing our first photo. Is the new character hidden somewhere within?
Much of the focus going into The Walking Dead Season 6 has honed in on new faces among the cast, rather than the downfall of Alexandria outright. It can’t be long before walkers breach the gates, but what about the latest trailer suggests a decidedly more human invasion within the walls?
