In just two episodes of NBC’s new show we’ve had a lot happen. We’ve had a lot of questions come up, some questions answered, and a ton of action. The episode started off with a flashback. A week after the blackout Rachel told Charlie that she needed to always watch out for her brother, Danny. (This is obviously where her tremendous guilt comes in.)

Charlie snaps out of it to find that Miles isn’t there. Where could he be? I already had my guess. Yes, I was right. He was fighting. Miles and a bounty hunter were going at it, and just as Miles was going to slit the bounty hunters throat, Charlie walks in. She made sure that he didn’t kill him. A decision that he later came to regret.

They continue their search for Nora Clayton. We don’t know much about Nora yet except she knows Miles, and that, “she’s good at blowing stuff up.” I have a feeling I’m going to like her.

While on the quest, they of course run into the bounty hunter, who’s now angrier and captures Miles. He gives himself up when he finds out that they’ve taken Charlie and the crew.

In no time though, Miles was already free. When they were walking through the market, he pulled out those crazy kung fu moves. This rendered everyone else helpless and him the victor.

In just two episodes of NBC’s new show we’ve had a lot happen. We’ve had a lot of questions come up, some questions answered, and a ton of action. The episode started off with a flashback. A week after the blackout Rachel told Charlie that she needed to always watch out for her brother, Danny. (This is obviously where her tremendous guilt comes in.)

Charlie snaps out of it to find that Miles isn’t there. Where could he be? I already had my guess. Yes, I was right. He was fighting. Miles and a bounty hunter were going at it, and just as Miles was going to slit the bounty hunters throat, Charlie walks in. She made sure that he didn’t kill him. A decision that he later came to regret.

While on the quest, they of course run into the bounty hunter, who’s now angrier and captures Miles. He gives himself up when he finds out that they’ve taken Charlie and the crew.

In no time though, Miles was already free. When they were walking through the market, he pulled out those crazy kung fu moves. This rendered everyone else helpless and him the victor.

The militia still had Danny and was busy knocking on the door of a house with a dead deer hanging outside. My first thought was that the Militia was hungry and wanted some yummy venison. Nope, instead of having a BBQ, they had a standoff. The man said that he had one gun, but when they asked to search his house he shot one of the militia men. This then led to his inevitable death.

Never one to stay in one place too long, Miles said that he needed to go find Nora. He insisted that he needed to go alone and went on his way. When morning came, Aaron and Maggie found a note from Charlie explaining she had gone on to follow Miles.

Being a step ahead of just about everybody, Charlie pretends to be injured so that Nate will reveal himself. As it turns out, Nate had been following her this whole time, and being very loud. She quickly handcuffs him to a pole while pretending to be hurt, leaving him there alone.

Aaron is quickly becoming one of the more perplexing characters of the show. We haven’t seen much of him throughout the episodes, but I have a feeling that this will all change soon enough. He might know more than he is letting on, and he told Maggie about him having the oh so powerful USB devise in his possession. During their exchange, he brought up the question of whether or not this blackout is man-made or not. If it’s man-made it will be easier to fix, he said. I have a strong feeling this question will come up many times over the next few episodes.

Finally, we find Nora. She’s part of a chain gang who is pulling a helicopter from one point to another. Silly militia, that won’t work! (What do they know that we don’t, and what are they trying accomplish with this helicopter?)

Miles breaks Nora free in the middle of the night only to find out that she didn’t want to be free. She was there on a mission to steal the militia’s gun, which when sold on the black market will be priceless.

Since Miles ruined Nora’s plans to steal the rifle, they need to regroup and discuss what to do now. Trying to earn her keep, Charlie volunteers to shoot the man in charge of the gun.

We go to a flashback of a man trying to steal their food shortly after the blackout. We learn that her father didn’t have the nerve to shoot the man as he walked away with the wagon of food. Present-day Charlie hesitates, wondering if she could kill someone. We see the flashback again. As the man walks away, we see that he was shot, but not by her dad. Rachel shoots him right in the back. With that, Charlie gathers up the strength and fires away!

In the final ten minutes we were treated to not one, but two cliffhangers! First, that Grace’s attic is infiltrated as “Randall” comes in with a taser. The second is that Rachel is still alive! (Gasp!) She is being held captive by the militia and knows now that Ben is dead and that they have her son.

Are you hooked? What did you think of episode 2, and how excited are you for episode 3?

Director James Gunn confirms the name of a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 creature with the release of some concept art from the film.

The Guardians of the Galaxy have been pretty busy lately while they gear up for Vol. 2. On Friday we learned that they’ll be showing up in Avengers: Infinity War, and tonight we got a sneak peek of a creature the team will be taking on in the GotG sequel.

Taking to Twitter, Gunn showed off a piece of concept art created by Andy Park.

In his replies, he names the creature and states that, no, they aren’t fighting in space.

Then taking to Facebook, Gunn replied to fans who had questions about the image.

An updated synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 reads:

“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”

So it looks like for those who were lucky enough to see GotG 2 footage at San Diego Comic-Con this year, you’ve already seen this guy in action.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ lands in theatres on May 5, 2017

Maisie Williams freaks out over ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 scripts

"Nothing will prepare you for this."

7:45 pm EDT, August 22, 2016

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

At first, Williams warned fans to steel themselves for the epic events to come.

…but apparently, no amount of mental toughness will be enough for season 7.

To summarize, Game of Thrones fans the world over are now sizzlingly jealous of Maisie Williams… and also, apparently, well and truly screwed.

With George R.R. Martin’s next installment in A Song of Ice and Fire still achingly absent, there’s almost no way to predict the major events of Game of Thrones season 7. Our only theory is that we should probably say goodbye to the feelings we managed to resuscitate after Jon Snow came back to life.

Williams isn’t the only member of the cast hinting at madness to come. Maisie’s on-screen sister Sophie Turner revealed that she too had advance knowledge while pondering Sansa’s future.

“I’ve actually just got the scripts for seven,” Turner tells Variety. “So I don’t want to say too much, because I’ll probably end up slipping some truths out!”

Seven forbid, Sophie. Seven forbid.

Game of Thrones season 7 will air some time in 2017, but not soon enough.

What madness do you think ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 has in store?

Netflix adapting ‘Anne of Green Gables’ for new TV series with additional themes

Anne Shirley is returning to our screens!

2:45 pm EDT, August 22, 2016

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

The eight-book Anne of Green Gables series has been adapted numerous times over the years (including the well-known, two-part 1985 televised miniseries), but this will arguably be the biggest adaptation to date thanks to the potential audience Netflix could pull in.

According to Deadline, “the coming-of-age series will focus on a young girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an elderly spinster and her aging brother. Over time — and thanks to her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination — 13-year-old Anne will transform their lives and eventually the small town in which they live.”

The new adaptation “will honor the foundation of the book, but will incorporate new adventures reflecting themes of identity, sexism, bullying, prejudice, and trusting one’s self.”

The series will be set in 1890. The first book was published in 1908 by Lucy Maud Montgomery and has gone on to sell over 50 million copies worldwide.
