The Flash Cast Promotes Careers in STEM

It’s a fairly standard PSA, but I’m glad to see the cast of The Flash — Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, and Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon (although he isn’t given much to say) — promoting careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) for students. It’s a great match for that show, which with Cisco and Caitlin, makes science look fun and useful. It’s part of the CW Good charity promotion, plugging the STEM […]

Lucifer Season 1 Out Later This Month

If you’re like me and you enjoy watching Lucifer, you’ll want to know that the first season will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on August 23. Even if you haven’t tried it yet, you should check it out as a fun twist on the lightly supernatural procedural. Although the premise is the same as the Vertigo comic — a bored Lucifer leaves Hell and starts running a nightclub in Los Angeles, accompanied by his demonic assistant, who tends bar […]

DC Releases Sneak Peaks for Upcoming TV Show Seasons

DC has released promo footage, as shown at the San Diego Comic-Con just past, for almost all their comic-book-inspired TV shows. (Supergirl doesn’t have one.) Check out these highlight reel videos for reminders of what’s happening with each and what’s coming up. First, my favorites: Lucifer (starring Tom Ellis), which is launching its second season in September on Fox, and iZombie (starring Rose McIver), going on a third (but we have to wait until midseason for it). Before we get […]

iZombie Season 3 Teaser

As we’re all rewatching iZombie season 2 (right?), here’s a quick teaser of star Rose McIver talking about what she’s looking forward to in the upcoming season 3. I’d forgotten about the change in the character dynamics after the season finale, and she’s right, it should make things more interesting. And I’m glad to hear that more zombies will be reflecting the characteristics of the brains they eat, since those “transformations” are fun. (On a cultural note, it’s weird to […]

iZombie Gets Blu-ray Release, Season 2 Out Today

When iZombie (a wonderfully fun and suspenseful TV show) came out on DVD last fall, unlike the superhero DC TV shows, it didn’t get a Blu-ray release. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has now remedied that through its Warner Archive direct-to-consumer line. Which is a way for dedicated fans, either of the show or the format, to demonstrate their desire for the product without the company having to commit to up-front print runs or distribution. You can order through the WBShop […]

TCM Charges for Fan Club

I missed this when it was announced as part of the TCM Film Festival back in April, but it’s another example of how to wring more revenue from your most devoted fans. TCM Backlot is the first official fan club for the classic movie cable channel, and it will cost you $87 a year to become a “charter member” for “unprecedented access”. That currently consists of eligibility to Vote on programming and help shape the network Go on the air […]
