British-American horror television series "Penny Dreadful" is returning for its third season on May 1. What is unexpected however is that the show's home network Showtime has made available the show's first episode in full on the Showtime website. Fans of the series, particularly those in North America and Britain, can watch episode one for free and in full.
The show's third season however has the main characters of the show in different places, both literally and figuratively. The show's strong female heroine, Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) has decided to stay indoors while battling a deep depression that may have likely been caused by the events at the end of season two. She will however try to battle this with the help of a therapist, Dr. Seward (Patti LuPone). Her benefactor, Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) is in Africa, trying to find a new purpose in his life, while Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) is back in America, where he was extradited after he confessed to committing multiple murders, owing to the fact that he is a werewolf. Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Harvey Treadaway) has turned into an addict.
According to a Tech Times report, despite the physical separation of the main characters, there will still be a point where everyone will find themselves back in London. Sir Malcolm for example, in the first episode has been approached by a Native American who told him that Ethan was in need of his help. The Creature (Rory Kinnear), who is Dr. Frankenstein's creation, despite being trapped in a boat somewhere, has also decided to make his way back to London. more >>
The drama television series "Chicago Fire" is almost at the end of its Season 4 run, with only three episodes left that will conclude in the season finale on May 17. As the season comes to an end, fans are still not sure about the real status of the relationship between two main characters in the show, Lieutenant Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Firefighter Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund) of Truck 81. According to a TVLine report, however, the Dawson-Casey relationship or "Dawsey" will hit another major bump in the road.
With Casey taking his burgeoning political career seriously as he is running for alderman, he is working closely with political consultant Susan Weller (Lauren Stamile). According to Jesse Spencer, the actor who plays Casey, the chemistry between the two of them is quite obvious from the start although they try to deny that it exists. Dawson on the other hand will not like this arrangement as she has her own doubts about the intentions of Weller.
The TVLine report featured an interview with the show's executive producer Matt Olmstead who talked about the future of Dawsey in the upcoming episodes. According to Olmstead, Dawson will be making a decision that will have major implications on the relationship and this may have to do with a foster child that she will encounter in the coming episode. Taking care of the young boy, even temporarily, will definitely have a huge dent on Dawsey. more >>
One of the highlights of Tuesday's episode of the BBC One/AMC espionage drama "The Night Manager" was the performance of Elizabeth Debicki, one of the show's stars.
The Australian actress, who is best known for appearing in films such as "Everest" (2015) and "The Great Gatsby" (2013), gave viewers a surprising and unexpected look at her character, Jed Marshall, in the episode, which found her coming face-to-face with a group of kidnappers.
In the latest episode of the spy miniseries, Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston) entered the world of international arms dealer Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie) by saving Roper's son, Daniel, from the kidnappers. Of course, the whole thing was staged, and the episode even showed Pine crafting the criminal history that would make him a convincing addition to Roper's circle. more >>
After being fired by ESPN last week for publishing his opinion in support of North Carolina's transgender law, retired Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling spoke out against his former employer Wednesday, saying the network employs some of the "biggest racists" in sports commentating.
Schilling, a three-time World Series winner who was a color baseball commentator for the Disney-owned sports network, lost his job last Wednesday over a comment he posted in reply to an anti-transgender Facebook meme.
Schilling's comment stated: "A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don't care what they are, who they sleep with, men's room was designed for the penis, women's not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently, Pathetic!" more >>
The season 2 finale of The CW's "The Flash" will unveil the true identity of the Man in the Iron Mask. And in a recent Q&A with the press, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said that the revelation "is going to blow your mind."
But before that, Kreisberg said that the next episode of "The Flash," titled "Rupture," will see whether or not Wells' (Tom Cavanagh) idea of causing another particle accelerator explosion to get Barry's (Grant Gustin) speed back will work. As the "Flash" boss told reporters, what Team Flash will be attempting is both complicated and dangerous, and everyone on the team, including Barry himself, will have to figure out whether or not it is the right thing to do, considering that the last particle accelerator explosion wreaked havoc in Central City.
"Containment," The CW's new miniseries about an epidemic that leaves the city of Atlanta quarantined, is the latest offering from producer/screenwriter Julie Plec, the woman behind hit shows "The Vampire Diaries" and "The Originals."
The drama/thriller, which was originally titled "Cordon," follows a group of Atlanta residents as they deal with a virus outbreak that causes the city to be cordoned off and loved ones to be separated.
