The Walking Dead will be at the San Diego Comic-Con (Hall H) this Friday to unveil an official sneak preview of season 5. Before that goes down we have some images from the new season featuring Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Carol (Melissa McBride) with baby Judith and finally, a shot of Daryl (Norman Reedus) looking to be in a bit of a pickle.
Check out those Walking Dead season 5 images as well as a character banner below:
We told you that FXX acquired The Simpsons, but now it’s getting real. They have the syndication rights to all episodes of the animated series, and announced that it will kick off its syndication of The Simpsons by showing all 25 seasons (that’s 552 episodes) in chronological order, plus The Simpsons Movie (airing after episode 400), starting on August 21st. The episodes will run 24 hours a day until the series is up to date on September 1st, making it the longest-running marathon in TV history.
Wow. I know there is a good chance if you turn your TV on at any time of any day you will find The Simpsons on, but this just made it a lot more convenient.
FXX will also make all Simpsons episodes available on demand through the FXNOW app—available on smart phones, smart TVs, and game consoles—and SimpsonsWorld.com starting in October. Fans will have complete access to every full-length episode of The Simpsons, just like that.

FARGO and LOUIE Renewed by FX; FARGO Will Have New Cast, Setting, and Characters and Louie is Shortened
FX has announced renewals for the Emmy nominated Louie and Fargo, now how’s that for awesome? Louie will return next spring with an order for seven episodes and Fargo will return for a 10-episode second season with an all-new cast, a different time period, and a new “true crime” story. Both a critical and commercial success, Fargo quickly became one of my favorite TV shows of the year and a new season with a new story sounds perfect. Noah Hawley will return to produce and write the new season.

Chalky White is definitely still pissed off about what happened at the end of last season of Boardwalk Empire, he’s got a beard to prove it! Jumping ahead to 1931 (the depression) the final season looks to be going out with a bang and I can’t wait. This under-appreciated gem of a TV show had a short life, but it was full I assure you. Check it out if you can on HBO (go to a friend’s house if you have to) or get the DVDs on sale – you won’t regret it.
The final season premieres on September 7th 2014 on HBO.
Watch the trailer below:
The 2014 Emmy Nominations were announced this morning, and like always they will please and upset people depending on whom you talk to. The great news is that TV Drama is alive and well; it has to be celebrated and just a nomination for attention makes me happy. If you haven’t been watching or have watched shows like True Detective, Fargo, Louis, and Shameless, maybe it’s time. The quick snub I saw would go the mentioned Shameless and the performance by Emmy Rossum (pictured above). She was perfect this past season and watching her on screen was consistently memorizing; another season is on the way thankfully.
The best new TV shows of the year, Fargo and True Detective share a lot in common. Both shows are doing one and done seasons meaning each season is set to have a new cast and with True Detective a new location. They define TV drama and creativity and it’s great to see them recognized. If Billy Bob Thornton doesn’t win I don’t know what’s right anymore.
The Emmy Awards will air live on NBC, Monday, August 25th at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.

If you’re like me and grew up watching countless reruns of ’66 Batman, you’re going to love this. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced that they’d be unveiling details of their Batman: The Complete Series Blu-ray release at this year’s Comic-Con, with a special appearance by Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin), and Julie Newmar (Catwoman).
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases Comic-Con panel announcement, sizzle video for Batman: The Complete Television Series
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will officially unveil the details of its highly-anticipated November 2014 release of “Batman: The Complete Television Series” at a Comic-Con International panel – featuring special guests Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar – on Thursday, July 24 from 6:00-7:00pm in Hall H.
The actors behind Batman, Robin and Catwoman will give fans their first inside sneak peak at the most anticipated home entertainment release in fanboy history.

We have a trailer for the set below, it’s a must watch:
Sherlock has gathered quite the cult following over the last few years despite the irregular scheduling and very short seasons. Each episode feels like it’s own self contained TV film. Since season 3 ended in January of this year fans have been clamoring for more. With the rising popularity of Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch scheduling becomes quite a challenge. Well good news folks! We have news on when we will see more Sherlock on the small screen. (more…)
HBO’s The Leftovers is an intense and unpredictable drama based on the Tom Perrotta novel that shouldn’t be missed; it will leave you guessing and sometimes suffering. I suspect many will find it to be too bleak while others will feel a connection to the heavy feeling it’s going to leave you with each week.
If you haven’t heard of the show, here’s a briefing:
We told you a few weeks ago that Boardwalk Empire’s final season will jump ahead seven years and land us right into the depression. It’s the end of Nucky Thompson’s biggest source of income (for now) and J.Edgar Hoover was all over the place with tax evasion charges. In real life, it’s also the year that saw the end of Al Capone’s run at the top of Chicago’s organized crime syndicate. All good things I guess.
The teaser trailer below is all about Nucky being a lonely sad man; I think he was pretty sad all this time, but now he doesn’t have money or Margaret and the kids – now that’s a downer.
Boardwalk Empire returns to HBO in September, watch the teaser below:
Boy Meets World was one of the best shows of my young life. Each week I could look forward to swooning over Topanga, hanging with the boys at Chubbies, and learning a thing or two from Mr. Feeny.
The show had plenty of messages to deliver, something definitely lacking on today’s television channels. The show was creative and full of a wit and humor that I hadn’t seen before. Their self-awareness and occasional breaking of the fourth wall was delightful and risky for a children’s show.
Boy Meets World brought fantasy and enjoyment to my home and my family when I was a kid, so I can’t help but hope that the upcoming Girl Meets World will do the same for old and new audiences alike. While it may not capture the same charm, hopefully the morals that made Boy Meets World such a compelling and heartfelt show remain intact. Let’s hope for a new age of “Feeny Wisdom” too.
With 7 seasons (128 episodes) there are plenty of episodes to love and still reference to this day. I have narrowed it down to 20 episodes, so I know I’ll be missing some of yours. Let me know in the comments what your list would look like.
