Hugh Dancy To Investigate Killers, Try Not To Fall In Love With Them, In Law & Order Revival

How is Hugh Dancy supposed to solve homicides without his murder husband? According to Deadline, Dancy -- who played FBI consultant Will Graham in the NBC series "Hannibal," opposite Mads Mikkelsen's titular cannibal -- has been tapped to star in the "Law & Order" revival, which is also happening at NBC. Here's hoping that his character in the long-running procedural is better at catching criminals than catching feelings for them.It's been a decade since "Law & Order" went off the air, ending wi...

14 Shows Like Riverdale You Can Binge Watch Right Now

Few shows compare to "Riverdale." It's a young adult series, but it's nothing like "Gossip Girl." It flirts with the supernatural, but it's nothing like 'The Vampire Diaries." That's the beauty of the CW series: What started as a sexy Archie Comics reboot has become so much more. "Riverdale" is a fruit salad of genre; it is a mystery, a dark comedy, a soap opera, a musical, and a social satire all at once.As a result, no matter what you like best about "Riverdale," there's bound to be another sh...

6 Other Batman Villains Who Deserve Their Own HBO Max Series

The news that the Penguin is getting his own HBO Max spin-off series courtesy of "The Batman" director Matt Reeves got me thinking ... what other Batman villains deserve their own TV shows? The Dark Knight's rogues' gallery is huge, but there are a handful of villains who have stood out above the rest. Sure, there are some deep-cut baddies who could be interesting for an episode or two, but who has the potential to deliver a full season or more? Some of these characters have been featured in Bat...

Fannibals, this one is for you.

CS Soapbox: MCU Chronology is a Crucial Part of the Success

CS Soapbox: MCU Chronology is a Crucial Part of the Success Marvel has done an impeccable job crafting the one and — as of now — only successful cinematic universe (okay, maybe The Conjuring). Other studios have tried and failed to create their own intertwined franchises over the years, but none have unlocked the secret to the MCU’s sustained success. So, what gives? What is Marvel doing differently than the others? Here’s one theory: a heavy focus on chronology, or an emphasis on releasing ...

Is ‘Backdraft 2’ an Under-Baked Sequel or Hot Stuff?

(Welcome to DTV Descent, a series that explores the weird and wild world of direct-to-video sequels to theatrically released movies. This week’s descent sees us enter the unexpectedly light on fire sequel to 1991’s Ron Howard hit, Backdraft.) Ron Howard is often viewed as something of a journeyman director making crowd-pleasers across genres, but while his filmography certainly supports the idea, I’d argue he’s also delivered more than a few legit great films. Rush (2013) was his last high-poin...

‘Seven Seconds’ Review: Netflix’s Latest is an Addictive Procedural

Netflix’s new series Seven Seconds is an addictive procedural drama that starts off as a murder mystery and turns into something else. The show isn’t so much concerned with the crime at hand as it is the fallout – the trauma that befalls relatives, and the way such events can impact several different lives. Seven Seconds has big issues on its mind, particularly tensions that arise in a community when dealing with a racist police force. Ultimately, it’s not entirely successful with its bigger is...

‘The Alienist’ Should Please ‘Penny Dreadful’ and ‘Hannibal’ Fans

When The Alienist was first published in 1994, author Caleb Carr said, “I was always aware that if done correctly, this could end up being a great movie.” Well, we’ll never know if a great movie could’ve been made from this material, and not for lack of trying. Paramount Pictures bought the movie rights before publication in 1993, but behind-the-scenes squabbles about budget and scripts kept The Alienist from the big screen for more than two decades. Now Carr’s serial killer novel finds new lif...

Bryan Fuller Still Talking About ‘Hannibal’ Season 4, Still Getting Our Hopes Up

It’s easy to be sad that Hannibal is no more, but it’s hard to be angry. The late, great horror series had a passionate fan base, but also a tiny fan base – very few people actually watched this mesmerizing and completely bonkers series and the three seasons NBC gave it were generous. And yet, there has been buzz about a potential fourth season ever since the show’s cancelation…buzz that has been continuously stoked by creator and showrunner Bryan Fuller, who has made it perfectly clear that he...
