Supernatural continues to be a favorite at Comic-Con, filling Hall H with enthusiastic fans. The Supernatural panel at this year’s Comic-Con included showrunner Jeremy Carver, writer Andrew Dabb, and stars Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester), Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester), Misha Collins (Castiel), and Mark Sheppard (Crowley). This year’s panel was further enhanced by its Kings of Con moderators: Richard Speight, Jr. (Gabriel) and Rob Benedict (Chuck Shurley). Continue reading
Fans got a first glimpse of Season 6 at The Walking Dead panel at Comic-Con 2015. The sixth season of AMC’s highly rated drama picks up where Season 5 left off, and we will get to see how the people of Alexandria deal with the reality of the outside world. The reunion between Morgan (Lennie James) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) will bring some additional tension into the community because Morgan has a different view of humanity than Rick does. These two men, who have at times had a similar path, have found ways to survive despite the inhumanity that surrounds them. Rick’s low tolerance of those who put his friends and family at risk may run counter to Morgan’s approach of leaving humans alive, even when they’re dangerous to others. Even Daryl’s (Norman Reedus) loyalty to Rick may be tested.
In the Season 5 finale “Conquer” Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh) and the people of Alexandria were shocked that one walker could get into their community. Wait until they see what’s in store for them in Season 6. The area around Alexandria has had relatively few walkers, but that’s about to change.
In the upcoming season Nurse Jackie Emmy winner Merritt Wever will play a character from the comic and Ethan Embry, from Grace and Frankie, is also join the cast. Executive Producer Scott Gimple will return to helm for Season 6. Lennie James will become a series regular. During the comic-con panel Gimple revealed that we will learn more about Morgan’s journey through a series of flashbacks.
The Walking Dead Season 6 will premiere on Sunday, October 11th with an extended 90-minute episode. If you can’t wait until the fall for more walker action, AMC’s summer series Fear the Walking Dead will begin airing August 23.

Wayward Pines serves us up some “Betrayal,” as some of the townsfolk are at the breaking point. The town rules, the inability to leave, and the public killings make Wayward Pines a less than ideal living environment. This is particularly true for those who don’t like to play pretend all the time: those referred to as the “subversives.” It looks like Ethan Burke has been indoctrinated into the official party line of Wayward Pines just in time to try to stop their shenanigans.
Season 5 of Teen Wolf is going for that horror film vibe. We saw it in the first episode, “Creatures of the Night,” with Lydia at the very gothic Eichen House. In the second episode, “Parasominia,” we get a spooky dream sequence involving a raven. The anticipatory hype about the Dread Doctors seems well-deserved, as they have proven terrifying thus far.
The Pishtaco is a South American anthropophage who hunts people in order to eat or steal their body fat. Tales of the Pishtaco began in the Andes during the Spanish conquest of Peru in the 16th century, perhaps when conquistadores were seen to make use of human body fat for unusual purposes, such as dressing battle wounds. This, in combination with the important place of body fat in Andean culture as representative of strength and vitality (the pre-Incan creator deity Viracocha is closely associated with body fat), contributed to the idea of the Pishtaco.

Teen Wolf is off to a roaring start with the Season 5 premiere “Creatures of the Night.” It’s senior year for Scott, Stiles, Malia, Lydia, and Kira, and as well as feeling the normal existential angst that comes during the last year of high school, these teens have supernatural angst to deal with. We are thrown right into the thick of it, Teen Wolf style, with senior rites of passage, exasperated parents, the return of a childhood friend, and teenage make-out sessions, along with an epic fight, an introduction to new baddies, and a preview of dark things to come. Despite the loss of Tyler Hoechlin as a series regular, Season 5 of Teen Wolf is off to a strong start with “Creatures of the Night.”
