The Flash TV Series Just Cast Zoom, So Now I'm Completely Confused 

Actor Tony Todd has been cast as the Flash’s archenemy Zoom in the second season of the CW’s hit TV series. Now, if you’re thinking to yourself, “Hey, I thought the Reverse-Flash was the Flash’s archenemy,” well, you’re right. Because Zoom is the Reverse-Flash. Who was played in season one by Tom Cavanaugh. Who is… » 8/31/15 2:31pm Yesterday 2:31pm

The Strain Introduces the Show’s Biggest Badass and Then Instantly Takes Him Away 

First of all, let me apologize for the lack of last week’s recap. I had to travel very early on Monday morning to NYC for io9/Gawker shenanigans, and was unable to watch last week’s episode, which is a shame, because it was definitely the highlight of the season. Rather than ignore it, I figure I’d give recaps of both… » 8/31/15 1:40pm Yesterday 1:40pm

The Most Ill-Advised Continuations of Classic Science Fiction and Fantasy TV Shows

The X-Files, Heroes and Twin Peaks are all coming back to our screens soon, with at least some of the original castmembers returning. Sounds great—except that this sort of thing doesn’t always work out. Here are the most ignominious examples of classic TV shows that were reanimated...but they came back wrong. » 8/31/15 1:22pm Yesterday 1:22pm

Hannibal Bids a Gorgeously Gory Farewell That Offers Few Surprises, But Plenty of Satisfaction

The dreaded moment has arrived: Hannibal as we know it is no more. At its heart, the show’s always been about the complex (to put it mildly) relationship between Will and Hannibal; necessarily, the finale digs deep into TV’s most fraught twosome ... along with serving up buckets of stomach-roiling gore. » 8/31/15 1:20pm Yesterday 1:20pm

Last Night’s Falling Skies Finale Actually Depressed The Hell Out of Me

The human race is doomed. That’s what I take away from the final episode of Falling Skies, in which the human race is saved in such a slapdash and unconvincing manner, you sense that everyone concerned felt as though humanity actually deserves to perish. God, this show. What the hell happened? » 8/31/15 10:05am Yesterday 10:05am

Will the Game of Thrones TV Series Actually Stand the Test of Time?

Greetings, folks! I’m in the desolate ruins of New York City, visiting the former Gawker offices for the first time (honestly, it’s hard to tell what was destroyed in the apocalypse and what is just unfinished construction). But there’s always time for mail, including why toy collectors are so bitter, whether movie… » 8/27/15 12:35pm Thursday 12:35pm

3 Things Movies and TV Shows Get Wrong About Serial Killers (and 3 Things They Get Right)

Hannibal may be ending its NBC run on Saturday, but serial killers as entertainment will, no doubt, live on forever. But how accurate are the most popular examples of narrative, non-docudrama works that depict their gruesome habits? We make like Will Graham and investigate. » 8/27/15 10:40am Thursday 10:40am

Birds Are Way More Lethal Than Bullets on This Week's Zoo

After last week’s rat-pocalypse, the team gets back to facing enemies of a more human sort: the villainous puppet masters at Reiden Global and the vengeful FBI. But this wouldn’t be Zoo without some animal insanity, and the episode’s title, “Murmuration,” offers a big ol’ hint to keep watching the skies. » 8/26/15 1:40pm Wednesday 1:40pm

Michael Emerson Doesn’t Expect Person of Interest To Have a Happy Ending

Person of Interest has been getting darker and darker as the show delves deeper into its premise about artificial intelligence. And even though we want these tortured heroes to find happiness in the end, star Michael Emerson tells io9 it’s probably not going to happen. He also told us what to expect in season five. » 8/26/15 11:43am Wednesday 11:43am
