Glee’s season 4 finale was a doozy of an episode and received lots of mixed reactions from fans.

Our season 4 finale begins with Brittany being interviewed in a grand, wood-paneled office at MIT. The professors explain their interest in her, given her terrible grade point average and unusually high test scores, and how, when she took one of MIT’s own math tests, she scored zero on the actual given questions. They tell her that she has a lack of conscious understanding of even basic arithmetic, but it seems that her unconscious mind is a different story – the professors found scribbled patterns of numbers on the back of the paper that turned out to be some of the most complicated codes in mathematical history – numbers Brittany had “swirling around in her head.”

Brittany goes from skeptical to delighted when she realizes they’re not calling her stupid – they’re saying she’s potentially the greatest scientific mind since Einstein. The professors say they’re going to offer her an “unusual proposition,” the details of which we do not hear. I kind of suspect they’re going to pay her lots of money in exchange for doing experiments on her.

We quietly cut to a text graphic screen where Ryder is still worrying about the identity of his Catfish – imagining it as different people – Kitty, Unique, Blaine – and still demanding that “Katie” meet him. In the actual world, Schuester announces to the choir room that Regionals will be held at McKinley this year due to some technicality. He talks a bit about the competition – the Waffletoots – played by the famed a capella choir the Yale Whiffenpoofs, and the Hooiserdaddies, who Schue believes to be their main competition, due to their tiny powerhouse Frida Romero (American Idol’s Jessica Sanchez.) He starts to talk seriously about moments in life, as a performer, which completely define who you are, and how this is one such moment for them. I’m pretty sure it’s not – it’s a regional high school show choir competition – but we cut to someone for whom Mr. Schuester’s statement proves more truthful – Rachel.

She’s waiting for her final Funny Girl callback, and Schue knows this and asks the Glee Club to send her some good vibes. In New York, she demurely enters the audition room, introduces herself, and begins to sing Celine Dion’s “To Love You More,” which sounds incredibly powerful, emotional, and technically precise, but lacks any stage presence whatsoever.

Presumably, she has to do an acting bit as well, because she’s not getting cast in a musical based on that. She’s weeping a little at the end of the song, and the room is silent – some people seem blown away, but the main casting director gives her the standard “we’ll let you know,” and Rachel seems to take that as a negative. That’s the last we see of her this episode, and therefore, this season.

Back at McKinley, it seems Burt Hummel’s sensible logic has had zero effect on Blaine, as he’s still planning to propose to Kurt. He asks Sam for ideas on how to make it special, but Sam is also on Team Blaine Is Deluded. “We’re in high school,” says Sam, who got married in high school. Blaine calls this out, but Sam explains that was because he really thought the world was ending, and that when they’d realized it wasn’t, he’d known they were in trouble.

He also, by mentioning Adam (remember Adam? I miss Adam), comes close to what I feel is a major issue that Blaine’s ignoring – that he and Kurt aren’t actually together. You don’t just go around asking people you’re not going out with to marry you! Is this not something anyone is finding weird? Because Burt didn’t mention it either – surely he should have said something like, “Kurt said he didn’t want to be with you, and you need to respect that. He wants your friendship. Your pursuit of him to this degree is inappropriate.” Anyone? Nope? Okay.

New Directions reconvenes in the choir room to prepare for Regionals. Joe and Sugar are welcomed with mad applause as Schuester counts that they have the standard twelve competition members. Brittany is the last to arrive, and she proceeds to act like a complete psychopath, cutting everyone down.

When Sam tries to tell her she’s out of line, more concerned than anything, she dumps him on the spot – via text. She demands to be given all the solos, walks out of the Glee Club when Schue doesn’t comply, and goes after her next target – Coach Roz. She pulls a Martin Luther – and I don’t mean MLK Jr, I mean 16th century German monk Martin Luther – and nails her Ninety Five Theses – in crayon – to Roz’s door.

Martin Luther’s Theses explained his problems with the current state of the Catholic Church and began the Reformation. Brittany’s explain her reasons for quitting the Cheerios – some of which expose the cruel and unethical practices that Sue was a part of. She also ceremoniously lights her Cheerios uniform on fire in Roz’s trash can.

Her attitude throughout the entire thing with both the Glee Club and Roz is so arrogant, so calculated, and so thorough, that it makes me wonder if she had let MIT do something to her brain – something that healed her inability to make basic connections, and fully able to tap into her mind-power, and that this is her actual personality with the veil of constant confusion taken away.

The brand new trailer features tons of nods to the original 90s game show!

4:33 pm EDT, July 23, 2016

Get ready for a serious dose of nostalgia, 90s kids! Nickelodeon just premiered the trailer for the upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie at San Diego Comic-Con and you’re definitely going to want to check it out!

The upcoming made-for-TV movie centers around three siblings who find themselves immersed in the temple after breaking away from a jungle tour. Once inside, they discover all the legends they’ve grown up hearing about the mysterious temple are actually real.

Being trapped in the temple itself may sound cool at the beginning, but the siblings will soon learn that getting out may be tougher than they originally anticipated. They’ll have to follow the map and survive the Temple’s many hidden rooms if they want to make it out unscathed.

Check out the first trailer for Legends of the Hidden Temple below!

Fans of the original game show are sure to recognize quite a few of the most iconic aspects taken from the beloved 90s series. Olmec aside, the first action-packed trailer includes mentions of the steps of knowledge, the shrine of the silver monkey, and more— They’ve even managed to slip in mentions of some of the old teams contestant were able to play on when competing on the original game show!

The upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie reunites Kirk Fogg (original TV how host) and Dee Bradley Baker (original voice of Olmec), and additionally stars Isabela Moner, Colin Critchley, and Jet Jurgensmeyer.

Hot off the heels of the Wonder Woman trailer DC has released our first look at the art for Justice League as well as the first trailer!

It’s a very exciting day to be a DC movies fan! After debuting the Wonder Woman trailer earlier today, DC surprised everyone with the first official Justice League trailer which has been simultaneously released publicly during its debut at San Diego Comic-Con. It should be noted that the video, posted on Director Zack Snyder’s Twitter account, includes a title card at the beginning denoting that this video was made specifically for fans at Comic-Con. “The following footage was prepared by the filmmakers as a special look for fans in attendance at Comic-Con 2016.”

Click full screen, turn up your volume, and get ready for this!


The “trailer” (if that’s what we’re calling it) doesn’t give away much about the plot of the movie, however. It features Bruce Wayne checking in and recruiting Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash – the three of which weren’t as heavily featured in this year’s Batman V Superman.

One of the more thrilling parts of the video is when Bruce Wayne shows up to meet The Flash and throws a Batarang at him. We get to see the slow motion perspective of The Flash while a Batarang whizzes by his face, with him ultimately realizing who has just appeared before him. Before Bruce even has a second to sell him on joining the Justice League, he’s interrupted. “Stop right there. I’m in,” says The Flash.

After the mixed reviews of Batman V Superman from earlier this year, it looks like Justice League might have taken some notes from the massive success of Deadpool’s light-hearted but serious comic book movie template. It already feels like this ensemble cast will lend itself to making up some ground in terms of likability. Ezra Miller’s The Flash is easily the “you-gotta-love-this-kid” character based on his one scene alone. Meanwhile, Aquaman will appeal to those burly, rugged Wolverine style fans. Both character types were missing from the sometimes confusing Batman V Superman.

Check out the full photo of the Justice League featuring our first detailed looks of The Flash, Cyborg, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman together in one place.

We still have a while before we get to hit theaters for Justice League. The superhero sure-to-be blockbuster is set to hit theaters November 17, 2017.

What did you think of your first look at the upcoming Justice League movie?

WB debuted a new trailer for Wonder Woman on Saturday morning at San Diego Comic-Con.

Gal Gadot and the cast of Wonder Woman introduced the new trailer, which offers a massive new look at the first female-led super hero movie (during this new wave of super hero madness, anyway). Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor and Gadot’s Diana Prince seem to have some great chemistry. And unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman gets up to a lot of ass-kicking in the three minute preview. Perhaps one of the coolest moments is when she fends off a lot of fire power, and one of the funniest moments comes at the end, when Diana equates Steve’s secretary to a slave. Watch below:

The movie is directed by Patty Jenkins, who has clearly done an amazing job bringing Wonder Woman to life with Gadot.

A new poster for Wonder Woman was also released, finally revealing her (colorful!) costume:

Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017. The film’s synopsis reads:

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
