American Horror Story: Freak Show S04 E13: Curtain Call

AMERICAN HORROR STORY FREAK SHOW  REVIEW SHOW STOPPERS EPISODE 12 FINN WITTROCK

Last week’s episode Of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” had us all reeling with plot twists full of revenge and lunacy. It was almost like watching Congress at work. What the freaks finally did to Stanley was a brilliant tribute to Tod Browning and his film, but I never expected Maggie to die. Elsa’s on the way to Hollywood, Chester’s in jail and Dandy’s the new owner. It’s the last performance of the season and the show must go on. Your ticket for tonight comes with a warning, “He who enters is doomed.” Read the rest of this entry

Comics Today, TV Tomorrow For Powers #1 On The Wednesday Run

Powers 1 coverAre we too far along in the cycle to call the comic-book-property-to-television-program transition a renaissance? Is it even a renaissance?

I can’t recall a time – ever – where there were so many television shows based on comics that I read (or read), all on at the same time! Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Walking Dead, the upcoming iZombie and Daredevil to name a few.

Everyone is in on the popular game, from major broadcasters like NBC, to the more artsy cable companies like AMC, to new modes of transmission companies like Netflix, to…Sony PlayStation?

And that brings us to today’s release of Powers #1. Follow me after the jump and I’ll connect that comic book to television transition.
