Geek TV for the Week of January 15

This is the week where a lot of our shows are back to put us on the edge of our seats once again.


I suggest you set up your DVRs for Wednesday, as it is chock full of great TV. Luckily, we have the weekend to catch up!

Personally, I am looking forward to the season finale of The Gifted, the return of Riverdale, episode 12 of ST:Discovery, and episode two of The Magicians!

What are you looking forward to?


News You May Have Missed…

So many little news bites today.

  1. I know that many of you love Jason Momoa, so here is something to keep top of mind in 2018 and 2019. Production will begin on the remake of The Crow.  In The Crow Reborn, Eric, a poetic guitarist, is brought back to life by a crow a year after he and his fiancé are murdered. the script was written by Nick Cave and will be directed by Corin Hardy. Jason Momoa will play Eric Draven. Watch the original if you are intrigued. Great movie. Production will begin in February 2018 and the movie will hopefully be out in 2019. (Movieweb)
  2. If you are a fan of General Hospital, The Originals and Once Upon a Time, you are in luck. Nathan Parson will be playing a charismatic attorney who will be the love interest to someone. Our guess it will be Robin, as they just mentioned that they character has been cast. Nathan played Ethan on General Hospital and he played Jackson on The Originals. NathanParsons
  3. The Orville has been renewed for a second season.
  4. In Good Omens, A tale of the bungling of Armageddon features an angel, a demon, an 11-year-old Antichrist and a doom-saying witch, the character of Williams Shakespeare has been cast. GoodOmensWS
  5. In “I am surprised that this did not happen earlier” news, The Blair Witch Project is being adapted for a tv series. This is all in the infancy stage as the project still does not have a home. Would you watch it? (TV Web)
  6. Mark Strong may end up portraying Doctor Sivana, the archenemy of Shazam! Also, Grace Fulton has been cast as a friend of Batson in the same movie that is slated to be released in 2019. (THR)
  7. Finally, in odd character development. John Diggle of the CW’s Arrow, no longer trusts his team. Which is evident in all of his poor decision making in this current season. Once his wing was clipped, he started to spiral. We can all see that things will not turn out well and it will take a miracle, aka Oliver Queen, to sort out John and whatever mess he gets them in. Do you like this year’s John-centric storyline? (Variety)
  8. Finally, We caught wind (via everyone in Twitter) that the final season of the Originals will focus on the Mikaelsons and some people will return, but no crossovers…barring Klaroline. This makes sense as we are all sure that the team want to send this show off with a lot of HEAs and all the fans happy. (EW)

Casting News – From Riverdale to Once Upon a Time…

TVLine – Polly may have moved on from Riverdale, to technically save herself and her twin babies from the Black Hood, but Tiera Skovbye is moving on to play Robin on Once Upon a Time. Robin is the full grown daughter of Robin Hood and Zelena.
