Scream: the tv series: Slick as Stabbing Teens In a Horror Show

by Anthony Wetmore (@TheMisterPipes, GhostConch)

MTV has made another stab at horror drama with a new take on
a horror classic. Scream: the tv series penned by Jill Blotvogel, starring Bex Taylor-Klaus (Arrow, The Killing), Willa Fitzgerald (Royal Pains), and Tracy Middendorf (Lost, Boardwalk Empire) promises to
deliver exasperated groans and genuine chills in the show’s first season. 

The
pilot episode delivers on stylized, updated nostalgia. Gone are the ringing phones
and playful inquisitions, this time the fear comes from all sides of media,
social or otherwise. “What’s your favorite scary movie?” becomes a revealing
video gone viral or a threatening text. The warmth of updated nostalgia is kindled
again in the character of Noah Foster (played by John Karna) a computer genius
with a wide swath of knowledge concerning the “rules” of horror-drama
television. 

Treats like this may draw older fans into an otherwise modern retelling of the Brandon James mythology at a deliciously slower pace, hopefully pulling it into darker depths than the usual suspect; consistent camp while simultaneously dragging in a younger fanbase. Peppered with enough twisting high school relationships, some blood, more than a few dashes of self-awareness and a smooth soundtrack, Scream: the tv series has put forth a promising first venture into terrorizing teen drama television.

New Photo From BATMAN V SUPERMAN: Dawn of Justice

by Joey Pedras

Entertainment Weekly released this new photo of our Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) having a conversation of sorts. Dressed to the nines in what one only could assume is Wayne Manor.

Not much context was given with this photo, unfortunately. Bruce, and Diana seem to be having a lovely chat, and maybe a dance. Possibly a low point from the film? Who are we kidding though? I doubt there’s going to be any low points. This scene is probably rife with Bat-drama. What are you two scheming?

Your iPhone 6 Plus (or Galaxy S6) WON’T Work With The Pip-Boy

by Joey Pedras

Bethesda says their Pip-Boy replica will not be compatible with the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy S6 phones. Their reasoning is because formatting for those phones would deter from making the Pip-Boy‘s dimensions faithful to those in the games.

I see this as nothing less than reasonable. It’ll accommodate most other mainstream smartphones. If you like your phones bigger than the rest you’ll be missing out. No need to fret thought, my dears, I’m sure you’ll still be able to use the Pip-Boy app that will be released at Fallout 4′s launch.

We eagerly await the day when we can pre-order this precious Fallout lover’s dream piece. I guess that day will come soon, but with every new day the wait gets harder, and harder.

Fallout 4 is set to release Novermber 10th, 2015.

FIRST LOOK AT SEASON 9 OF DOCTOR WHO

By Joey Pedras

Peter Capaldi sat down with the folks over at Entertainment Weekly to give the dish on his upcoming Comic-Con debut, and the ninth season of the show.

From what we’ve gathered, the season premiere (which will occur sometime this fall) will be a two-part event. Capaldi also mentions that he’s “very nervous” about his upcoming Comic-Con appearance. Quite uncharacteristic of the twelfth doctor if I do say so myself.

We know Missy (Michelle Gomez) will be returning in some way this season, and will be in the first two episodes. NOT to mention! Osgood (Ingrid Oliver) is CONFIRMED back from the “dead” this season.

We don’t know too much about what the overarching plot of this season will be just yet. What we do know is that there will be old faces, and new. Also, it could possibly be the last season with our Clara Oswald. That is still uncertain, but it seems like the perfect time to depart.
