When we last left the series, Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) was inching closer to her dreams of the White House. Paired with the psychopath that is Homelander (Antony Starr) the duo are power crazed and powered up.

The best spider-news we’ve had all week is here with the update that Marc Bernardin will be adapting Neil Gaiman’s “Anansi Boys” into a comic book series for Dark Horse.  Gaiman’s tale takes place in his well trod territory of deities and legends, this time about the trickster spider-god, Anansi. Entrenched in African folklore the way Gaiman has explored divines through “American Gods,” “Norse Mythology,” and “The Sandman,” this novel stands as one of his beloved gems.  Bernardin, known for his work as a journalist before switching to the world of film and television, most recently served as supervising producer…

“Quantum Leap” returned this week with “Off the Cuff,” and we had the chance to chat to star Raymond Lee about vaulting back into the season.  The midseason return sees Dr. Ben Song still stuck leaping from body to body, trying to right wrongs in history. Meanwhile the team is reckoning with moving on; having thought him dead or lost in space time. Unexpected paths also converge and emotional growth whether they want it or not is on the horizon.

Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. aka Snoop Dogg lets his love of the gridiron show in “The Underdoggs.” The Grammy-nominated artist is not the first name that comes to mind to play a character outside of himself. Nor is he the first person that comes to mind when one thinks of “plausible former NFL player.” Yet if one is willing to suspend their disbelief on that, “The Underdoggs” has a surprising amount of earnestness.  Buried underneath a slew of vulgarities out of the mouth of babes (and by babes we mean the little league football team at the center of the…

After handing the reins to the spectacular Trevor Noah in 2015, Stewart took a break from the spotlight, and then returned to Apple TV+ with “The Problem with Jon Stewart.”  Noah announced his intention to leave the show in 2022, and Comedy Central has been “auditioning” hosts ever since. A slew of excellent guests have stepped in to host including Leslie Jones, Roy Wood Jr., Ronny Chieng, Wanda Sykes, Chelsea Handler, Hasan Minhaj, Kal Penn,…

Marvel Studios shows that investing in authenticity and representation pays off with their new Spotlight streaming series, “Echo.” Alaqua Cox, who first appeared as the character in “Hawkeye” is stunning as the titular warrior. Joining Lauren Ridloff’s Makkari from “The Eternals” as the second deaf character on screen. Cox is also an amputee, and member of the Menominee and Mohican nations.  All of those factors end up enhancing the story and character in a way that gave a wonderful glimpse inside one of the most layered characters we’ve seen in a while. Coinciding with the news that the Netflix Marvel…

Sad that the tribulations of “Squid Game: The Challenge” have ended (for now)? Good news for those willing to travel, or who are in Los Angeles. “Squid Game: The Trials” is here to test your mettle. The competition show certainly had its own set of hurdles to overcome in adapting the drama from a murder fest to a social experiment. (We highly recommend watching the making of on Netflix for an in depth look at the detailed efforts!) Translating that translation of an experience to a smaller more accessible scale was also no easy feat. Earlier this month, we got…
