Dear Spike: Time to Move On, Bro — It's Not Her, It's You

Welcome to the first chunk of The Weekly Static's three-part mid-season finale, where we're going to take a look at our personal choice for 2017's "little engine that could" (truTV) and the show we've got the hots for going into 2018 (Hulu's Castle Rock). But first, it's time for a little clean-up by taking a […]


The Weekly Static S01E07: Scary Pumpkins, A 'Wild' Dogg, And More!

Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends! The Weekly Static! The Weekly Static!

Spike TV/Paramount Network Cancels 'The Mist' After One Season

With the box office success of It and the critical success of limited TV series Mr. Mercedes, Stephen King's been having a pretty great year…but it hasn't been without some stumbles along the way (I'm looking at you, domestic box office disappointment The Dark Tower).

Spike TV's 'The Mist' Review: Solid Start, But Leans Too Hard On Tropes

Spike premiered the first episode of their based-loosely-on-the-novella-and-later-film adaptation of Stephen King's The Mist last week…so how was it? As first-episodes go, I'd give it a resounding…okay. The first episodes of new shows always have the impossible task of having to do so much in so little time: introduce characters, establish backstories, introduce the "big […]
