SPOILER ALERT: This story contains details of tonight’s Wayward Pines finale.

After 10 episodes and a summer of time-shifting successes, Wayward Pines came to a bloody and awakening end tonight – literally and figuratively. Or did it? Although picked up as an event series back in 2013 by Fox, the mystery series from executive producers M. Night Shyamalan, Chad Hodge, Donald De Line and Ashwin Rajan based on the trio of novels from Blake Crouch looks both on and off screen like it could be coming back.

8 Of The Scariest Are You Afraid Of The Dark? Episodes Ever

Featured Image -- 62

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

It’s October now, which means basic boys and girls across the land are celebrating the return of Hocus Pocus-watching season. To be fair, that movie is incredible, Bette Midler is everything, and as far as “scary movies” are concerned, HP is about as terrifying as Eloise at the Plaza. In essence, the film is 100% my speed, my innermost basic self is not ashamed, and it’s most definitely my go-to for fall/Halloween binge watching. It’s the only Halloween-centric thing, besides the Disney Channel Original classic, Halloweentown, that I can manage to watch without peeing my pants.

This is why I cannot for the life of me understand that when I was in college, I asked my mom for the entire series of Are You Afraid of the Dark? on DVD. Actually, there were three reasons:

A) I was making my Christmas list (Yes, I still make a Christmas…

‘Walking Dead’ Q&A: Ross Marquand on What’s Next For Aaron

Featured Image -- 60

Originally posted on Variety:

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Walking Dead” season 5, episode 11, titled “The Distance.”

Ross Marquand’s introduction as Aaron on last week’s “The Walking Dead” — joking about “stranger danger” to a still grieving Maggie and Sasha — turned out to be unexpectedly prophetic this week. Only the danger didn’t come from Aaron, but from an ultra-protective Rick, whose understandable suspicion of Aaron’s intentions wound up leading the group into even more deadly situations.

Of course we still don’t know for sure if Aaron’s role as a “recruiter” will bring salvation or another hellish situation, but we do know he helped everyone (including baby Judith) get out of that smelly barn. Fans of Robert Kirkman’s “Walking Dead” comics already have their theories for where Aaron’s storyline is going, but Variety spoke with Marquand about the…

Two-Sentence Terrors


Originally posted on ruined head:


Despite my ghoulish reputation, I really have the heart of a small boy. I keep it in a jar on my desk.” – Robert Bloch (author of Psycho)

In the spirit of resuscitating a year(s)-old internet meme—the Two-Sentence Horror Story:

The Gilt Mirror
Reflected in the large gilt mirror hanging above the living room mantle, I saw my wife step from the hallway into a room past the bedroom and close the door quietly behind her. I clutched at the mantle for support, because there is no room just past the bedroom, and my wife died five years ago in a fire.

Anyone else have two sentences to share?

Always Loving


Earlier I listed the shows I currently watch and love. These are shows that have ended their runs that I love, and could watch over and over.

Off the air

Twilight Zone
Alfred Hitchcock Presents
The Sopranos
Star Trek: The Original Series
The X-Files
Breaking Bad

The original Twilight Zone is my favorite show of all time, and I’ll always watch it when it’s on. One day, I would like to do a proper re-watch, and maybe even write a little about how I feel about it. I’m also thinking of doing a re-watch of the X-Files.

Mary Tyler Moore Show
The Bob Newhart Show
All In The Family
The Office
The Ricky Gervais Show
Golden Girls

Right now I am doing a re-watch of The Bob Newhart Show, as well as THe Mary Tyler Moore Show. They air daily on Comedy Gold here in Canada. In a few months I plan to do a re-watch of The Office. I’ve watched a lot of Golden Girls and All in the Family lately, so those re-watches will wait.

The most wonderful thing is happening…..


Three of my favorite people in the world are getting together to make a sitcom – Amy Poehler, Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner are set to make “Difficult People”. 

The Emmy-nominated Billy on the Street host is teaming with longtime friend and head writer Julie Klausner (Mulaney) to create and star in a scripted comedy for USA, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

In Difficult People, which Eichner and Klausner created, the duo star as frustrated comedians and pop culture-loving best friends living in New York City who hate everyone — except each other.


OMG!!!!!!  Billy and Julie will star, and Amy will produce! Comedy on TV is starting to head in a direction I really like.
