Rose Tinted Glasses Not Allowed: ‘Teen Titans’ Episode 1

Ever since Teen Titans Go began airing on CN, I have thought about returning to the first series. I didn’t see much of a reason why until a few weeks ago when Teen Titans Go To The Movies became a hit in theaters and DC dropped a trailer for their flagship series Titans which takes the characters in a “darker” route. I see that this series was very influential for millennials- myself included. But why is that? What really made us click with this show? Let’s take a look back at the very first episode of Teen Titans and give

Another Character Possibly Set to Return to ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 9

Just like Bobby Martin who went to the attic for a pair of skis and never came back down in All My Children, we have yet to see the return of one character in The Walking Dead. While Heath had been around for a couple of seasons prior to his departure in season seven, he was never officially killed and therefore we have to ask, where did he go? Heath was last seen in “Swear”, the 6th episode of season seven, when he and Tara run into trouble while looking for the community Oceanside. The two are split up and

Different Ending for Xandar Was Originally Planned in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Avengers: Infinity War released digitally earlier today, and with it over four additional hours of extras. One of those extras is an exclusive director commentary in which the Russo brothers explain why they did what they did in the movie. One of the big points of dispute between fans was the handling of Thanos acquiring the Power Stone and why Xandar wasn’t shown in the film. Well, originally, that wasn’t the plan.

How the ‘Agents of SHIELD’ cast kept Jeff Ward around

 It is no secret by now that Jeff Shaw has been signed as a regular for season 6 to reprise his role as Jemma and Fitz’s Grandson Deke Shaw.

Andrew Lincoln Reveals His Reason for Leaving ‘The Walking Dead’

Andrew Lincoln’s announced departure from the hit show The Walking Dead came as a shock to most fans. While there was always a chance that Rick may not make it to the end of the series and Carl may take up the mantle, that concept was quickly scraped the moment they killed off Chandler Riggs’s character. You had to have some member of the Grimes family leading the show for it to still be TWD, right? Season 9 will be Andrew Lincoln’s last season and although we don’t know how the storyline will be without Rick Grimes, we do have
