While Disney’s Star Wars canon has been spreading itself across all sorts of mediums, it’s mainly focused on books, so we don’t really know what a lot of these fascinating new characters look like.

No, we weren’t joking. CBS is actually rebooting MacGyver and the first trailer has been released to prove it. Lucas Till (X-Men: Apocalypse) stars as the extremely resourceful hero, who this series will follow in his younger years. Years where, apparently, he was even better at blowing shit up.Read more...

The trailer for new TBS comedy People of Earth features sarcastic aliens who call each other “dude” and Wyatt Cenac (of The Daily Show) as a reporter following a quirky group of alien abductees—while dealing with the aftermath of his own close encounter.

The new Doom, really, is rather like the old Doom. You fight swarms of hulking demons. You never stop moving for fear of being swamped in laser fire, missiles, and pile-driving hell knights. Your screen is permanently suffused with explosions, blood, and chunks of bodies. You, the Doom Marine, are what stands between an army of demons accidentally unleashed on a Martian mining installation, and domination of our realm. Thank goodness you’ve access to such big guns.Read more...
