We're friends with the monster that's under our beds. Get along with the voices inside of our heads. You're tryin' to save us, stop holding your breath. And you think we're crazy, yeah, you think we're… BCTV Daily Dispatch! Welcome back to our daily dose of some of the best things happening across the television landscape (and with some serious Devil horns being thrown out of respect to Eminem & Rihanna), as we take a look at what's been hitting your radar recently- and it looks like you're very hungry for Hulu's The Orville. Following that, we have the "BCTV Rewind" with a selection of curated articles more than worth your time that you may have missed the first time around.

With everything and anything comics clearly in play when it comes to getting either a live-action or animated adaptation, one of our big obsessions is seeing Matt Wagner's "Mage" trilogy ("The Hero Discovered," "The Hero Defined" & "The Hero Denied") brought to life. Along with a "King Arthur" theme that folks like and an excellent lead character in Kevin Matchstick, the series has an amazing ensemble of characters ripe for diverse casting- from Mirth and Edsel to Umbra Sprite, Sean Knight, and many more (and don't get us started on "Grendel").
