San Diego Comic-Con 2012: A Look at the Warner Bros.-Themed Special Editions of TV Guide

– Will Season 8 hinge on Sam trying to save Dean from Purgartory? “No,” Singer answers. An amount of time passes before Dean finds his way back from Purgatory (not specified how long). They’re planning on doing various flashbacks through the season showing what happened and what Sam did in that time while Dean was away.

– Why use flashbacks? Because fans usually hate it when the brothers are separated, so that’s why they’re being reunited quickly.

– What about Castiel? They’re still framing that out, but Cas will be back a number of times.

– Will Kevin the Prophet be back? “Kevin is an integral part of the year.”

– What does Crowley want with Kevin? The King of Hell needs someone to read the word of God. “Every year we start with a theme — this is our ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ year. This season-long story will be a quest. It’s about Kevin and the tablets and the Word of God.”

– They would like guest characters like Sheriff Mills, Charlie, and Garth back, but nothing is concrete yet. “And there’s one new character that we’re talking about. It’s a monster that Dean meets in Purgatory.”

– Who will be the big bad this season? It’s another angels and demons year. “It’s not apocalyptic but about who can gain control and keep demons in Hell or angels in Heaven.”

– Former producer Jeremy Carver, who exec produced the U.S verison of “Being Human”, is returning to “Supernatural” as your new co-showrunner. Will fans notice anything different? “No. Jeremy gave us a couple of years on the show, so I do think this season will be a little less earnest and a little more the kind of stuff we did in Seasons 2 and 3, before the weight of all the mythology got us.”

Less earnest? That sounds like a good direction to go in to revitalize the show after the overall good but very uneven Season 7.

For more either hit the “Supernatural” panel at SDCC on July 15th in Hall H or check back here for our coverage next week.

Stephen King’s IT Star Jeremy Ray Taylor and More Join Goosebumps 2

Published

on

GoosebumpsI was a big fan of the Jack Black Goosebumps movie that came out a few years back. Makes sense. I was a big fan of the R.L. Stine book series as a kid.

It’s with this in mind I’m excited about the upcoming Goosebump 2 and today we have an update on the film via Variety.

Turns out the kid cast of the sequel has been gathered together, and leading the pack will be chubby Ben from Stephen King’s IT aka Jeremy Ray Taylor.

On top of Taylor, the other child in the cast include Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Ben O’Brien (Manchester by the Sea), and Caleel Harris (“Castle Rock”).

While we don’t know any details regarding the sequel’s plot, Variety suspects it will “focus on iconic characters and storylines featured in the Goosebumps series.”

Ari Sandel is developing the project with Neal H. Moritz and Deborah Forte producing.

We’ll let you know when we hear more. What did you think of the original film and how excited are you for Goosebumps 2? Let us know below!

Ash vs Evil Dead S3 E1 Review – Ash is Back, Baby!

Published

on

Starring Bruce Campbell, Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago, Arielle Carver, Lucy Lawless

Written by Mark Verheiden

Directed by Mark Beesley


In order to appease fans, the third season of “Ash vs Evil Dead” needs to open with a bang and certainly not a whimper. Thankfully, the team behind the series know that and have spared basically no expense and are wasting no time getting right into the story.

We open to a commercial of Ash promoting his new hardware store, a business that not only sells tools and various accessories but also doubles as a sex toy shop. After all, when buying some screws, why not buy a dildo too, right? As Ash is celebrating the Grand Opening, a knock-off of “Antiques Roadshow” plays in the background where we see a young woman bring in the Necronomicon in the hopes of finding that is has worth. A few uttered words later and the blood not only begins flowing, it douses the screen!

Back in Elk Grove, Pablo’s torso fills with strange and foreign letters, a troubling omen of the evil that’s about to descend upon our plucky Ghostbeaters. Also here, we meet Brandy, Ash’s daughter (although she doesn’t know that at first), who, along with her friend Racehl, gets attacked in her high school by Coogie, the school mascot. This leads her to call her mother, Candy Barr, who in turn grabs Ash and reveals that they are married and that Ash’s daughter is in trouble. Essentially one gigantic dump of news, Ash heads to the high school where a blood-soaked battle ensues, one that leaves more than a few corpses.

At the end of the episode, Kelly reunites with Ash and Pablo, Brandy is brought aboard the team, and there’s Dalton, a Knight of Sumeria, who pledges his service to Ash, although I don’t think he knows what he’s getting himself into…

Moving at an almost breakneck speed, the first episode is absolutely packed with blood, gore, violence, and a couple of moments that actually had me laughing so hard that I had to pause the episode. Bruce Campbell still brings his all to the role of Ash and Arielle Carver-O’Neill, I have a feeling, is going to kill it (no pun intended) as his daughter, Sandy…Mandy? Brandy!

Do we get an understanding of what the greater story is going to be this season? Apart from seeing Ruby get her hands on the Necronomicon and do some weird blood ritual with it that impregnates her, not really. Honestly though, that really doesn’t matter. For now, it’s just good to see the old Delta roaring through the streets of Elk Grove once again.
