TNT to Resurrect Tales From The Crypt with M. Night Shyamalan

Hello kiddies!

We’ve been hearing for years that the Cryptkeeper would be returning, and for years we’ve been met with disappointment. Back in 2011 rumors surfaced that a new version of the show was being shopped around, and they would be ditching the anthology format. That wasn’t really what we wanted, but if it meant the return of Tales From The Crypt, we’d of taken it. Alas, that fell through.

Now it would seem the show is on track to finally return, this time keeping the anthology concept as part of a new two-hour horror block on TNT. The part that seems to have people worried however, is the name attached to the project – M. Night Shyamalan.

Titans: TNT Reveals Roster For Live Action DC Show

It’s no surprise that DC Comics and Warner Brothers are increasing their domination of the TV comic adaptations, with news coming from different networks about new series like Supergirl and iZombie to join the already successful Gotham, Arrow, The Flash, and to a lesser extent, Constantine. Marvel has been playing catch-up with Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter, plus the four Netflix series currently in development (You didn’t miss the first Daredevil trailer, did you?), but DC still holds the advantage. Especially with news of the most recent adaptation in development.

Now TNT is producing a live action adaptation of the Teen Titans simply titled Titans, with Akiva Goldsman and Marc Haimes acting as writers and executive producers of the series (or at least the pilot). The team have had a place in the animated world for years, with two related Teen Titans series, as well as the fan favorite Young Justice series that also focused on the sidekicks of the DC Universe.

TNT Orders 10 Episodes of ‘Legends’ Starring Sean Bean

Well, a new show, about undercover work, starring Sean Bean. I’m sure this series won’t end with the untimely death of its lead character. That would be getting ahead of ourselves though. Despite starring the ‘Human Spoiler Alert’ himself, this is a show, based upon the novel by Robert Littell, Legends tells the story of…

“a deep-cover operative who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. But his own identity comes into question when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn’t who he thinks he is.”

Take a look at the trailer…

Southland Season 6: Renewal Still an Uncertainty

With all the Game of Thrones excitement around here lately, one of television’s best shows might have had its final episode ever a couple of weeks ago, and no one is talking about it. I’m referring to TNT’s Southland, which is without a doubt the best cop show on TV. Rescued from the stupid clutches of NBC who tried to cancel it during its first season, TNT swooped in and saved the day. That was in 2009.

TNT’s Falling Skies: 2.03 – “Compass”

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo – not Jimmy! Why!?!?!?!?

Not little orphan Jimmy. Anybody, but Jimmy. Who is Captain Weaver going to love now??? Tell me it’s not true… Oh, but it is true. This week, we kick off the episode with the death of Captain Weaver’s beloved Orphan Jimmy. How did Jimmy get himself offed you might be asking? Well, he decided to make a poor life choice. He decided to tag along with the alien-boy Ben on Skidder hunting trips of instead of patrolling the perimeter as ordered. We see the two have a successful hunting trip in the opening of the episode, but guess who pressed his luck one too many times. RIP little soldier, RIP.
