Why Satan Visiting Riverdale Was Anything But Hellish

This RIVERDALE review contains spoilers. Riverdale Season 6 Episode 3 “If Rivervale is the final battleground between good and evil, is anybody’s soul safe?” With just two more episodes until the “Rivervale” experiment concludes, it is safe to say that the writers have perfectly utilized this break from their, what I will laughingly refer to as “traditional” storytelling, to completely revitalize the series creatively. Three weeks into the show’s sixth season and Riverdale is the most entertaining it has ever been — no small feat given that it accomplished this without its main character or usual narrative structure. And all…

Major Matrix Revolutions Character Confirmed for Resurrections

In many ways, The Matrix Resurrections feels like a remake: Thomas Anderson is trapped inside the simulation once again, waiting to be woken up in the real world. A new group of runners led by Morpheus are fighting the Agents and Machines that threaten Zion. Once again, Keanu Reeves’ Neo is faced with a choice: the red pill or the blue pill?

While it’s understanable that the average gamer doesn’t have nearly enough time or money to play every game they might enjoy even during a “slow” year, there’s alawys been something sad about the idea that there are games out there…

The MacGruber TV Series Is an Action-Comedy a Decade in the Making

You can’t have a naked performer use a flamethrower.  This is what MacGruber co-creators Jorma Taccone, John Solomon, and Will Forte were told by the fun-killing higher-ups, in no uncertain terms, when they set out to adapt their popular Saturday Night Live sketch-turned-feature-film into a TV series at Peacock. “We kept having these meetings where people would be like, ‘You know you can’t do this, right?’” Taccone says. “We were just like, ‘Yeah, but… we’re going to do it.’” Being told to not do something and then doing it anyway is fitting for both petulant action hero MacGruber (played by Forte)…

Doctor Who: Flux – Is the Grand Serpent the Master in Disguise?

Warning: contains spoilers for Doctor Who: Flux Episode 5 ‘Survivors of the Flux’ The first Master story my son ever saw was ‘Spyfall’, last year (yes, it was only last year).

The Witcher Season 2 Will Push the Boundaries of Fantasy TV

Netflix’s The Witcher is one of the streamer’s most popular offerings, an epic fantasy teeming with magic, monsters, and complex characters with weighty, potentially world-saving destinies shared between them. Its first season featured thrilling fight sequences, a banger of a folk ballad about our titular monster-slaying hero, and a non-linear timeline that is occasionally as frustrating as it is fun to unravel. And though things will reportedly become a bit more chronological in the show’s second season, the interconnected stakes have never been higher for our favorite characters. Emotional richness sets The Witcher apart from many of the other big-name…
