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, »

The Gifted Review: The Underground Faces “eXodus”
Though only three episodes into its freshman run, Fox’s The Gifted has proven to be one of the best new fall shows. 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

Jimmy Kimmel Returns To Brooklyn, Vowing To Be “As Artisanal As It Gets”
Jimmy Kimmel kicked off his third time doing his ABC late-night show from Brooklyn noting, “Last time we were here, people asked, ‘Will you ever come back?’ And I said ‘Only if you promise to open 2,000 new cold-press juice shops’.” “And you did. So here we are. You kept your word, I keep my word,” Kimmel enthused. “And it's especially great to be able to do our show here at Bam [Brooklyn Academy of Music] one last time before they turn it into a Whole Foods store.” His… »
“Beat Down Boogie” Films 7 Years of League of Legends Cosplay in this Video
One thing about League of Legends, you can see a ton of influential material within the game that was no doubt pulled or modified from other games, movies, or comics that have come before. So long as they’re original however that’s always allowed since it brings a new level of imagination and creative spark to the cosplay world. League of Legends was inspired by World of Warcraft, and it shows, but there are a lot of other elements that seem to pull from a much wider source. The result though is entirely unique and it is nothing short of awesome.

The South African comic told his very receptive Athenaeum Theatre audience that murder rates are higher in St. Louis, Baltimore, Memphis, and Cleveland. "It really sucks that people call Chicago the most dangerous city in America… »

The Voice Recap: Battle Stations!
It’s a cliché and a half to say that everything can change during The Voice’s Battles. In fact, if Carson Daly said it, I’m sure I’d roll my eyes. But it’s also, weirdly, true. Last season, I went into the Battles backing Felicia Temple and came out in awe of (eventual winner) Chris Blue. Going into Season 13’s Battles, my money was on… well, you know. However, I wouldn’t be in the slightest surprised if, by the time they were over, I was rooting for a different singer. Did Monday’s kickoff of the Battles, »

The Top Five Billy Crystal Movie Roles of His Career
Billy Crystal is kind of an acquired taste as a comedian. He’s funny, don’t get me wrong, but his brand of funny really needs to tickle your funny bone in a certain way or it might be that he won’t make you laugh as hard. In a world that is eventually going back to physical humor his more cerebral and sarcastic approach seems a little antiquated at times largely because people are no longer used to thinking for themselves, and those that are able tend to lord it over others at times. Pessimistic as that might be if you deny
Here's How The Gifted Is Going to Tackle the Magneto Issue
The Gifted premiered with a few pretty powerful mutants on its roster, but none so powerful as Lorna (Emma Dumont), who has an eerily familiar gift that allows her to control metal. Even the most casual X-Men fans know that power typically belongs to Magneto, and more hardcore fans will know that
