David Fincher Says He Almost Directed The ‘Deadwood’ Pilot
While David Fincher‘s recent career turn to television might seem surprising, those familiar with his history have always known he’s had an affinity for the small screen format. The director has an extensive list of music videos to his name, and an almost equally long list of commercials. That said, he’s certainly broken ground in the Peak TV era thanks to “House Of Cards” and now, “Mindhunter,” his latest must-see Netflix series.

Good News, Mindhunter Fans - There Are More Serial Killer Confessions on the Way
In case you haven't heard the good news, a second season of Mindhunter, Netflix's dark and gloomy (but fascinating) FBI thriller based on a true story, is officially in the works. In fact, Netflix had so much faith in the series that it renewed it for season two before season one even premiered on Friday, Oct. 13. The first season follows FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) on their mission to interview convicted serial killers like Ed Kemper and Monte Rissell to learn more about what makes them tick. Executive producer David Fincher is clearly wasting no time in preparing season two for your next Netflix binge - he already has a real-life crime lined up to explore in future episodes: the infamous Atlanta child murders. "Next year we're looking at the Atlanta child murders, so we'll have a lot more African-American music, which will be nice, »

Liv Tyler Joins Hulu's Harlots
Written, directed and produced by women, Harlots centers around two feuding brothels and the bustling sex trade in Georgian London, but in a way that flips the script on a profession shrouded by female objectification.
Tyler has been cast in the series regular role of Lady Isabella Fitzwilliam, an aristocratic social butterfly whose long-held secrets keep her in the thrall — and under the blackmailing thumb — of Lydia Quigley (played by Lesley Manville). Trapped in a loveless marriage, »

‘The Good Doctor’ Is Destroying One Misconception About Autism at a Time
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers about “The Good Doctor” Episode 4 titled “Pipes.”]
Although autistic characters have been seen plenty of times on the big screen, their portrayals on TV have been fewer and far between. Maintaining stories about autistic characters is a challenge that can go very wrong if done without the proper understanding, but the benefits are hopefully worth it if done correctly. “The Good Doctor” is taking its time addressing some of the misconceptions about those on the autism spectrum, and in doing so have made headway in trying to foster greater understanding of how autistic people may not process the world around them as neurotypical people might.

Coming down from the action-high of the first two episodes presented a tough challenge for The Gifted. They had to find a more delicate balancing act in the third installment, because while the first two episodes were exciting, this

“Beat Down Boogie” Films 7 Years of League of Legends Cosplay in this Video
One thing about League of Legends, you can see a ton of influential material within the game that was no doubt pulled or modified from other games, movies, or comics that have come before.
