A cable network that came into the spotlight at the turn of the , FX has managed to churn out some of the most critically-acclaimed television shows of the past twenty years or so. FX (and their separate network for comedies, FXX) has actually been responsible for as many great programs as premium cable networks like or Showtime, honestly—they just can’t seem to help themselves. They simply know how to make good TV. FX has been praised by showrunners for allowing them to have almost complete and total freedom in their couple of decades as a network—they let comedies be vulgar, they let dramas be violent, they let writers put out work they can be proud of.

All photos by ABC. Agents of SHIELD Season 6 Finale Recap The two-part Season 6 Finale brings this season’s storylines to a head. Believing that Sarge is the only one strong enough to stop Izel, Daisy and May head with him into the jungle, where Izel has taken control of Flint and used him to rebuild the monoliths. Daisy and May hope to be able to separate whatever demon from the other side of the gateway lives in Sarge’s body from him, leaving the Coulson side behind. Sarge isn’t so sure that will work; if the demon is gone, what’ll be left of him? The Shaw Drive With the team maintaining radio silence, the rest of the SHIELD team at the Lighthouse is helpless to assist. Deke has an idea. He takes Fitz-Simmons to a previously empty floor of the Lighthouse where he has moved his tech startup. The group has built the slap bracelets that keep Izel from possessing people. Now they are working on a jump drive that could, theoretically, allow agents to teleport into the temple to free Mack and YoYo. Fitz yells at Deke about stealing tech, patenting it, and selling it for profit. Deke tells him that he built this company because he doesn’t fit in anywhere else. He’s a man out of time and even his own family thinks he’s a joke. Deke straps the jump drive to his back and teleports into the temple, freeing Mack, YoYo, and Flint. Meanwhile, Izel has released her shrike onto a nearby resort. The infected begin to move toward the temple, forcing Sarge, May, and Daisy to fight, blowing the element of surprise. Daisy leads the infected away from the temple and back to the Quinjet, where she finds Mack and YoYo aboard. Mack and Daisy argue about the mission, with Mack still not trusting Sarge. The three barricade themselves in the disabled Quinjet, fighting off the horde of infected trying to get to them. During the fight, one of the shrike infects YoYo. Deke, meanwhile, tries to teleport back to the Lighthouse, but the jump drive needs time to recharge. Instead, he is flushed out of the temple and through the jungle to another jet. Mack overhears Deke trying to hail the Lighthouse on the radio and talks Deke through the repairing the jet and piloting it over to rescue them. Enoch’s Bluff The Lighthouse isn’t answering Deke because it has been infiltrated and locked down by Chronicom hunters. All of the Chronicoms have been reassigned as hunters — including Isaiah, who is sent to Kitson to take out Enoch. The hunters know everything that Fitz-Simmons know about SHIELD protocols, including the emergency escape protocols. The hunters make their way through the Lighthouse, flushing out and killing SHIELD agents as the Chronicoms search for the Framework. Fitz-Simmons tell the surviving agents to head to the tech startup to hide; because Fitz-Simmons didn’t know about it when they were Chronicom captives, then the hunters won’t know about it either. Fitz-Simmons head to where the Framework is stored and rig it with explosives. Hunters corner the couple. With no escape, the two prepare to sacrifice themselves to blow up the Framework, saving lives. Pinned down, the two are saved by Enoch, who defeated Isaiah and used his skin to infiltrate the hunters and save Fitz-Simmons. Enoch believes there is a way to escape, but it will mean forever altering the course of Fitz-Simmons’s lives. The Temple At the temple, May and Sarge confront Izel. Izel and May each try to get Sarge to join them. Sarge knows anger, fear, and pain. May tells him that’s love. Sarge now knows the only way to be rid of pain is to cut it out of himself. He stabs May with the sword and pushes her through the gateway to the other realm. In the other realm, life and death are meaningless. May removes the sword from her abdomen and uses it to take out the three guardians of the temple. Izel goes through the gateway and battles May on the other side, holding May off long enough to replace the stones that open the temple door, letting the rest of her people into the temple in order to access the gateway. Daisy, Mack, and YoYo confront Sarge, who has wholly given himself to the demon. The demon is stronger than Daisy’s quake ability. He is stronger than Mack. While Sarge fights them off, YoYo is possessed by the shrike. Neither Daisy nor Mack has the will to kill YoYo. Sarge turns Daisy so that her back is to the gateway, threatening to torture her for eternity once his people come through. Izel comes through the gateway and is about to stab Daisy from behind when May follows Izel through and kills her. That cause the shrike to die, releasing YoYo. May throws the sword to Mack, who kills Sarge, closing the gateway. “We Had Time” May dies in Daisy’s arms, asking if there was anything of Coulson left. Simmons enter the temple with a team in hazmat suits. She tells the rest that May will be fine. May is put into a pod and her tissue will be revived once her body reaches the correct core temperature. Once the hazmat team has collected samples from the monoliths, the SHIELD agents board Zephyr-1, equipped with the jump drive. From the air, they blow up the temple and are remote piloted by Fitz –who is not aboard– to New York City. The landscape has changes, with the Empire State Building the tallest building by far, possibly the tallest building left in the world according to Simmons. Simmons explains that the hunters are trying to turn the earth into Chronyca-3. They have Fury’s black box and access to centuries of SHIELD information. SHIELD is the only organization strong enough to stop the Chronicoms, but they need someone with vast and intimate knowledge of SHEILD and its history to stop them. To that end, Enoch has helped create SHIELD’s most advanced Life Model Decoy. It has Chronicom tech and all of its host’s memories. Simmons introduces the Coulson LMD to serve as Mack’s right hand man and help them defeat the Cronicoms. What did you think of Agents of SHIELD Season 6 Finale?

The Stand: Stephen King writing new ending to limited series adaptation Stephen King’s 1978 post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel is being adapted into a new limited series for CBS All Access. But will set this series apart from its 1994 counterpart, and the novel itself, is a new ending, which will be penned by King himself. As reported by , King is writing the script for the ninth episode of the series, which CBS All Access EVP Julie McNamara said will include “a new coda that won’t be found in the book.” “For fans of the book who have wondered what became of the survivors of the stand, this episode will contain a story that takes us beyond the book to answer those questions. A continuation to The Stand; we can’t wait to share that with the world.” The 10 episode series from writers (The Fault in Our Stars, The New Mutants) and (SEAL Team), reveals that this is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after, a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides — or are chosen. A world in which good rides on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abigail — and the worst nightmares of evil are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the dark man. Boone, who has been developing the project for years, will also direct the series for CBS Television Studios. Boone, Roy Lee, Jimmy Miller, Richard P. Rubinstein, and Cavell will executive produce. Will Weiske and Miri Yoon will co-executive produce with Owen King serving as producer. The post appeared first on .
Designated Survivor Season 3 Recap Season 3 brought a new national security threat, this time amidst President Kirkman’s reelection campaign. After the show’s , we’re recapping the season’s main storylines to close out and say goodbye (again) to the political drama. Reelection at All Costs President Kirkman ran for reelection as an independent, against the odds. He hired the savvy Lorraine Zimmer to be his campaign manager and named Aaron Shore as his running mate. Lorraine used illegal surveillance technology to spy on conservative opponent Cornelius Moss. When Emily discovered it and went to Kirkman right before the election, he uncharacteristically sat on the information to win. The FBI arrested Lorraine shortly after. As a handsome Latino VP candidate, Aaron helped Kirkman take Texas, Moss’ home state. His relationship with Isabel Pardo was popular, but after he cheated on her with Emily, they still needed to play their parts. Isabel’s promotion to Deputy Chief of Staff helped her realize she deserved better. RIP Hannah Wells Season 3 saw the death of FBI-agent-turned-CIA-analyst Hannah Wells. Uncomfortable with a desk job, Hannah stumbled onto a plan to engineer a virus that would leave people of color sterile, effectively changing voting demographics in the long term. The virus engineer, Wouter Momberg, murdered Hannah, but authorities thwarted the plan. Moss’ biggest donor, Detwiler, financed the plan and his operative hired Momberg. Emily’s Mother Emily had stepped away from the White House to help her mother, Carrie, who was sick with cancer. At Carrie’s insistence, Emily went back to work and chose to join the campaign to keep an eye on Lorraine. However, Carrie visited Emily because assisted suicide was legal. Eventually, Emily mercifully helped Carrie end her life. Prescription Addiction Mars Harper, Kirkman’s Chief of Staff, was living with a wife, Lynn, addicted to painkillers. After a scare that sent her to the hospital and then to rehab, Mars focused on FlagKind, Detwiler’s pharmaceutical company that made the drug she was addicted to.

Eric Kripke reveals the one scene Amazon cut from The Boys Amazon’s The Boys quickly showed a propensity for extreme blood, sex and carnage, which, to be fair, is mostly due to the Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic-series its based on. However, the extreme could have been … more extreme. At least according to show creator Eric Kripke, who revealed the one scene that the streaming service thought was a little uh…. too much for a casual audience. “I couldn’t quite understand why considering everything else we have in the show, but: Homelander, after being dressed down by Stilwell in episode 2, was standing on one of the Chrysler building Eagles. He pulled his pants down and started j***ing off, mumbling ‘I can do whatever I want’ over and over again until he climaxed all over New York City. We shot it! Oh my God, Anthony was the BEST in that scene. Amazon seemed to think it wasn’t necessary. I thought it told me something about his psyche. To be clear, they’ve been great, that may have been the ONLY fight I lost in Season 1.” is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven.” The show is expected to retain most of the comic’s () boundary-pushing violence and sexuality while exploring the dark side of superhero celebrity and fame. The series stars (Star Trek, Judge Dredd) as Billy Butcher, the ringleader of the vigilantes who risk it all to go against a group of all-powerful characters, with Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, as CIA agent Susan L. Rayner, and Karen Fukuhara as the Female. Elisabeth Shue co-stars in the series alongside Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, and Nathan Mitchell.

Stranger Things Season 3 Episode 8 Recap In the of Netflix’s Stranger Things, Dustin, Erica, Steve, and Robin joined the rest of the gang, but the Mind Flayer monster was hurting Eleven. In the Stranger Things Season 3 finale, it took a coordinated effort to infiltrate the Russian underground fortress on a mission to close the gate. Griswold Family A piece of the Mind Flayer’s creation was embedded inside El’s leg. After Jonathan tried to get it out with a knife, Eleven used her powers to extract it. Right then, the adults finally arrived. After everyone explained what had been going on, the adults formulated a plan using Alexei’s instructions. They would go down into the elevator to shut down the Key. Dustin and Erica rightfully pointed out they needed them to show the way. Code name Griswold Family included Nancy, Jonathan, Will, Eleven, Mike, Lucas, and Max. They were supposed to wait in safety at Bauman’s. Unfortunately, Billy was waiting outside in his car after he had sabotaged the station wagon. They ran back inside the mall, but the monster came in through the glass ceiling. Will, Lucas, Jonathan and Nancy tried to leave, and Billy almost rammed into them, if it wasn’t for Steve. They escaped, but Billy got a hold of Eleven. Lucas led the firework assault against the monster. However, it was Eleven, who reminded Billy of the memory of his mother, that finally broke through. Billy sacrificed himself to save them. Scoop Troop and Bald Eagle Scoop Troop, a.k.a. Dustin, Erica, Robin, and Steve, headed for Weathtertop, the hill where Dustin kept Cerebro. After directing the Bald Eagle, Bauman, through the vents, the adults were at a dead end with the passcode. It was supposed to be Planck’s constant, but the number was wrong. Dustin finally got Susie, who was real, on Cerebro. At Susie’s request, they sang “A Neverending Story” together, and she gave the right number. Unfortunately, Grigori attacked as the gate was closing. Hopper defeated him but didn’t make it out when Joyce closed the gate. The Mind Flayer’s body was dead. Because of Hopper and Joyce’s message, Dr. Owens and government agents swarmed the mall and the facility. Three Months Later The Meyers family was moving, and with Hopper gone, that included Eleven.

Rust: Jeff Daniels to star in Showtime drama series adaptation Golden Globe nominee and Emmy winner Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom, The Squid and the Whale, Godless) will be starring in and executive producing Rust, the straight-to-series adaptation for Showtime. The series is based on the novel American Rust by Philipp Meyer. Rust is a compelling family drama that will explore the tattered American dream through the eyes of the complicated and compromised chief of police Del Harris (Daniels) in a Rust Belt town in southwest Pennsylvania. When the woman he truly loves sees her son accused of murder, Harris is forced to decide what he’s willing to do to protect him. “Jeff Daniels is a bona fide giant on stage and screen, and Dan Futterman is a special writer and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have them together at Showtime,” said Gary Levine, co-president of entertainment at Showtime. “With vibrant characters caught in an unpredictable murder mystery, Rust will tell the relevant and touching human story of the corrosion of the American dream.” A series adaptation of the book was scrapped by USA Network after the channel had picked it up for a straight-to-series order in 2017. The new iteration for Showtime will have multiple episodes written by Oscar nominee Dan Futterman (The Looming Tower, Capote) who is also serving as executive producer alongside Michael De Luca and Elisa Ellis of Platform One. Daniels is arguably best known for his roles in the TV series The Newsroom, Godless, and The Looming Tower, and for his role as Harry in the Dumb and Dumber movies. His other recent projects include Guest Artist, The Catcher Was a Spy, Allegiant, The Martian, and Steve Jobs. The post appeared first on .

In her depressive state, Rue stayed in bed and watched Love Island. She didn’t leave her room after she rudely confronted her mother’s date. Rue’s depression prevented her from urinating.

Bob Iger teases a potential third live-action Star Wars series Despite the end nearing for the primary saga of the long-running sci-fi film franchise Star Wars, Disney CEO Bob Iger not only announced today that the next three Star Wars films are the in-development projects from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, but that there may also be a third live-action TV series extension of the franchise in the works. Speaking at the MoffettNathanson Media & Communications Summit, Iger discussed the future of the franchise and how the studio is planning on filling the gaps between the final primary installment The Rise of Skywalker and the first installment of the next trilogy, which is slated for a December 2022 release. “..In the interim, we are producing two Star Wars live-action series for Disney+, one of them is called The Mandalorian, which is being supervised by Jon Favreau, and the other one is a bit of a prequel to Rogue One. And my guess is there will probably be at least one more live-action series that we produce for Disney+ (meaning a Star Wars series), before we release the next film.” The franchise thus far has only seen three TV series extensions of the lore, all of which however have been animated, and the studio is currently working on two live-action small screen spin-offs. The first is The Mandalorian focusing on the lone titular gunfighter, which is set to premiere on the upcoming streaming service Disney+ on November 12. The second series currently in the works for Disney+ is an untitled project focusing on Rogue One character Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), described as an espionage thriller, from The Americans writer Stephen Schiff, which is set to begin production sometime later this year. Iger’s comments don’t necessarily confirm the development of a third series, but given the franchise’s popularity and potential for multiple story expansions, the mammoth studio’s inclinations to potentially produce a third iteration definitely creates hope for more adventures in a galaxy far, far away.
