Doom Patrol Season 2 Previews Really Do Depend on How Much You Blink

With Danny in a new "tire-rific" form (let us have that one) and sex demon Shadowy Mr. Evans (Brad Brinkley) sent back to his dimension, it looks like this week's episode of DC Universe (tick… tick… tick…) and HBO Max's Doom Patrol slows the action (but not the weirdness) down a bit to do a […]

Young Love: HBO Max, Matthew A. Cherry Developing Hair Love Series

Matthew A. Cherry isn't quite done with the Young family from Hair Love, not by a longshot. The filmmaker is teaming with Sony Pictures Animation for Young Love for HBO Max, an all-new, 2D animated series based on his Academy Award-winning short. The series was created by Cherry, who is set to serve as co-showrunner […]

Watchmen: The Art Of Storytelling | HBO

Watchmen "FYC" Emmy Video Reveals The Art Behind The Storytelling

It feels like Damon Lindelof's Watchmen is as much in the pop culture conversations of Summer 2020 as it was when it first debuted in October 2019. Much of that has to do with the way the series eerily reflected our society six months before we would see it play out for ourselves in real life. […]

Welcome to BCTV Sunday Slices, our little slice of weekly heaven where I look back at Bleeding Cool's television (BCTV) coverage from the past week to bestow some incredibly not objective, totally opinionated wisdom on what has become of the television landscape.

Breaking Bad, Dexter & More: BCTV's Finale-O-Meter Rates Series-Enders

So if you're like me, you've spent way too many 3 am's in a diner booth (substitute your stomping grounds here) in a "heightened sense of perception" and getting into one of a thousand possible geek debates. The one that always gets me going? Series finales: the ones that worked, the ones that sucked, the […]

Perry Mason Chapter 3 Preview Finds Mason Needing Answers from Drake

We see what you did there, HBO and Perry Mason. You tricked us into believing that the Matthew Rhys (The Americans)-starring series was going to run for eight episodes. You even put together an impressive cast that included John Lithgow, Tatiana Maslany, Juliet Rylance, Chris Chalk, Shea Whigham, and more to make it look convincing. But […]

Doom Patrol Season 2 Review: Every Good Party Ends with Sex… Men

The second season of DC Universe and HBO Max's Doom Patrol continues its mission to be utterly bat-flap crazy, mixing emotional trauma and dysfunction with superpowered shenanigans in a heady mix of surreal madness and gleeful snark. Things continue to be dire in "Sex Patrol", the fourth episode of the second season. This time, the […]

Doom Patrol Season 2 Preview: Ain't No Party Like a Doom Patrol Party

A week doesn't seem like a long enough time enough to process the trifecta of delicious weirdness that our eyeballs and head ramen were fed during the three-episode season premiere of DC Universe and HBO Max's Doom Patrol. A Jack the Ripper (Roger Floyd) wannabe with a god complex? A broken Danny the Brick? Our […]

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Larry's as Upset as You are Over Season 11 Order

While it would be easy to focus on the success HBO had had with its recent run of new series like Watchmen, Euphoria, The Outsider, and Perry Mason, we're pretty sure the old, funny curmudgeon in the corner over there would make it a point of reminding us that he's not going anywhere. And that […]

Dexter Star John Lithgow on Fans' Ironic "Love" for Trinity Killer

If you're checking out Sunday night's second episode of HBO's Matthew Rhys (The Americans)-starring mystery drama Perry Mason, then you recognize the actor portraying Elias Birchard "E.B." Jonathan, struggling attorney and a semi-regular employer of Mason: award-winning actor John Lithgow. With an actor like Lithgow, it's not a matter of if you've heard of him and […]

Adventure Time: Distant Lands BMO Review: Magical, Bittersweet Return

HBO Max's Adventure Time: Distant Lands premiered its first episode this week, and "BMO" did not miss a beat. It was back as strong and magical and fun as ever. It was a real adventure.

Doom Patrol Season 2 Review: Once More into The Wacky Breach!

DC Universe and HBO Max's Doom Patrol, the best superhero show on TV precisely because they're awful and messed up and just barely do the right thing, is back. It has one of the best opening credit sequences to depict abstract images that sum up the dilemmas and personalities of each of the characters. The second […]
