Your Stupid Minds! Stupid! Stupid!

ABC’s Once Upon a Time in Wonderland Canceled, Syfy’s Helix Renewed

Bah! Bah, I say!! News today of ABC canceling their Once Upon a Time spinoff, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (finale next Thursday), and Syfy renewing Helix for a second season. Both Rebecca and I couldn’t get into Helix and I was a fan of Wonderland despite its missteps. Hit the jump for my reaction GIF. 



Guess Who’s Co-Starring In Karen Gillan’s New Sitcom? Hint: It’s John Cho

It is a scientific fact that John Cho makes everything better. I saw a Tumblr post about it, and Tumblr’s relationship with accuracy is iffy at best, but in this case it’s spot on. Selfie, congratulations. You’ve been Cho-sen.

ABC Orders Sci-Fi Thriller About Female Character With Latent Supernatural Abilities

Agents of SHIELD Recap: “Seeds”

This week we visit the Hogwarts of SHIELD, complete with a scheming Dark Lord behind all the conflict, some Marauders, an adolescent business plan tested on the student body, and a female British braniac who loves homework more than life. I promise I won’t refer to Fitz as Seamus for the duration of my recap.

Curiouser and curiouser!

Once Upon A Time In Wonderland Promo Shows Us The White Rabbit

I had already been looking forward to ABC’s Once Upon a Time in Wonderland for a while (being a longtime Alice fan). The full trailer gave me hope we’d get a really great heroine out of the spin-off, and subsequent interviews confirmed she would indeed be getting into some action, but here’s a quick bit of proof. This is also the first I’ve seen of Lost’s Naveen Andrews as Jafar and our new White Rabbit.

ABC Is Doing Esmeralda: The TV Show

First Peggy Carter might be getting her own show. Now it’s Esmeralda’s turn. I half expect there to be an announcement about the return of Xena by the end of the day.

Disney Has “Started Conversations” About a Live-Action Star Wars TV Show

At a Television Critics Association press tour Disney president Paul Lee was asked about the possibility of a live-action Star Wars show appearing on ABC at some point in the future. His answer was heartening, assuming you’re on board with the whole Disney-Star Wars collaboration. (I’m there. I don’t know when it happened, but it did.)
