‘Doctor Who’: Pearl Mackie Confirms She’s Exiting Series After Christmas Episode
The Comic-Con panel for “Doctor Who” was always going to be a bit bittersweet since this was the last one for Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. Sadly, Pearl Mackie, who plays new companion Bill Potts, also confirmed that she will be leaving the series after the Christmas special.
Mackie has become an instant fan-favorite from her very first episode. Bill Potts had the honor of being the first openly gay companion in the series. While her sexuality wasn’t the main focus for her character, it wasn’t ignored either. In scenes throughout the season, various characters were seen accepting the fact that she is gay with no real issues. In the season finale, she was seen joining her love interest from the first episode to explore space aboard an alien ship.

Jake Paul Exits Disney Channel’s ‘Bizaardvark’ Mid-Season
Paul then confirmed the news on Twitter in a written message to fans. “Long story short… my team, Disney Channel, and I have come to the agreement it’s finally time for me to move on from the Disney family and ‘Bizaardvark,” he began. “At this point in time I am wanting to focus more on my personal brand, my YouTube channel, business ventures, growing Team 10, and working on more adult acting roles.”

The sometimes musical sitcom spoof on Internet celebrities premiered last June and is currently airing its second season. However, Paul will no longer be part of “Bizaardvark” when it resumes production this coming week.

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Paige Davis
Hosting popular television shows is one of the most difficult jobs in the entertainment industry. While hosting is a talent in itself, many of the most prominent hosts on television are remarkable performers in their own right. Such is the case with the highly popular and versatile Paige Davis. Davis rose to fame thanks to her incredible hosting work on Trading Spaces. While she departed from the series for several years, she is set to return again as host of the show. Despite becoming a household name, many people think of Davis as only a television host. In reality, she

Game of Thrones: Did One Line in This Week's Episode Change Everything?
Warning: This post contains spoilers for Sunday’s Game of Thrones.
And just like that, Game of Thrones‘ promised savior seems that much more promising.
Melisandre met Daenerys in Sunday’s episode — read our full recap here — and it wasn’t long before the two formidable women started discussing the Red Priestess’ favorite subject: The Prince Who Was Promised, aka the reincarnation of legendary hero Azor Ahai. Fans of the show will recall that Melisandre used to think Stannis was the prophesied savior of mankind, but as of late (and in light of his death), she’s had second thoughts. »
Turn Washington’s Spies Review: “Quarry” Signals Battle
I should apologize again for the lateness of this review. The good news is that I’ve been covering San Diego Comic-Con, and I should have quite a few good things to offer my readers here in a few short weeks. Unfortunately, that means that my regular reviews have fallen by the wayside. More good news: Turn: Washington’s Spies turned in another spectacularly tense hour this week. Let’s talk about it. Having become ever more aware of the history behind this show, part of the tension had everything to do with worrying that Turn would go further off the rails from history. The killing

‘Game of Thrones’ Review: Family Means Nothing in ‘Stormborn,’ As History Begins to Die Too
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7, Episode 2, “Stormborn.”]
Family has meant nearly everything in the world of “Game of Thrones.” The reputation of notable houses, the legacy of rulers and great men that line those history books have done as much to guide the actions of these characters as their own instincts. But after the events of “Stormborn,” that guiding principle of using the past to help shape the future looks to be as outdated as it’s ever been.
Take Aerys Targaryen, the Mad King whose very nickname casts a shadow on Westeros’ coming war, even after his successor’s successor’s successor has been wiped from the throne. In Dany’s new stronghold of Dragonstone (introduced at the top of this episode like Xanadu or some Transylvanian castle from a pre-code monster flick), Varys’ past allegiances are the first to be questioned. Dany’s short learning curve as a leader has meant a careful weeding out »

Insecure Season 2 Premiere Recap: Was It 'Hella Great' for You, Too?
As Molly’s therapist would say, there was a lot to “unpack” in the Season 2 premiere of HBO’s stellar dramedy, Insecure: Issa’s uncertain-at-best future with Lawrence, the significance (or lack thereof) of his hookup with… Wait!

The show is heating up even more than before as it sets itself for an epic clash that fans are chomping at the bit to see. Ivar the Boneless is a madman, but he is a dangerous, unpredictable madman.

‘Ballers’ Premiere Review: Season 3’s ‘Seeds of Expansion’ Promises to Extend The Action Beyond Miami
Read More‘Ballers’ Season Finale Review: Here’s How Hard The Rock Balled in Season 2 [Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Ballers” Season 3, Episode 1, “Seeds of Expansion.”]
As always, the life of a baller is filled with ups and downs, especially on “Ballers.” Thus, in the season premiere, we see the beginning of key storylines for Vernon (Donovan Carter), Charles (Omar Miller) and Ricky (John David Washington): Vernon’s got a new apparel business in the works, Charles is taking on more responsibility as a member of the Dolphins’ front office… and whoops, looks like Ricky is going to be a father, courtesy of a not-so-stable past (and present) hook-up.
It’s an awful lot of set-up, which we’ll undoubtedly dig into more as the season progresses, but none of the questions surrounding those narratives are as important as this one…

‘Game of Thrones’ Recap: New Alliances Begin to Form as War Approaches
Spoiler Alert: Do not keep reading if you have not seen Season 7 Episode 2 of “Game of Thrones”
This week’s episode of “Game of Thrones” opened at Dragonstone, the new island home base of Daenerys Targaryen. The island is beset by a storm, which Tyrion remarks is not dissimilar from the storm on the night Daenerys was born. She and her advisers plot the best way to take over Westeros with the smallest number of lives lost. But Daenerys is weary of Varys, due to his repeated changes of loyalty throughout his life. But Varys delivers an impassioned speech in his defense, saying he lives to serve poor people like he once was and that he has only ever worked for the good of the realm. Daenerys accepts his answer, but promises that if he betrays her she will burn him alive.
Greyworm then informs her that Melisandre has arrived to speak with her. Melisandre »

Why Shark Week Still Wins Me Over Despite it Being More Fake than Ever
Sharks are one of the most dangerous but misunderstood creatures in the world. They are indeed savage when they’re provoked and can tear a human to shreds if one decides to so foolishly irritate them, but overall they don’t really do much more than nudge a human now and then out of curiosity. The famed “shark week” that has been going on for 29 years now and is a week-long block of shark-based programming that initially gave a lot of interesting information about sharks and how to protect their natural environment. In the past several years and even the last

‘Twin Peaks’ Review: Part 11 Puts a Funny Spin on David Fincher as Agent Cooper Edges Closer to Reality
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Twin Peaks: The Return” (2017), Season 3, Episode 11, “Part 11.”]
“Damn good” only begins to describe Part 11 of “Twin Peaks: The Return,” an episode in which a lot of pieces came together both for the series’ central mystery and within its hero’s restricted mind.
First, let’s address what’s in the box. For all the parodies and homages that reference David Fincher’s iconic scene in “Seven,” this one may take the cake– well, the pie. The long drive into the desert. The long row of telephone lines on the side of the road. A mysterious box. An unarmed man held at gunpoint. These are the same images that evoked trepidation in Fincher’s film, but Lynch created a playful tone for “Twin Peaks.”
