I'm Going to Have Nightmares For at Least a Week After Watching The Terror's Season 2 Trailer

Just like in its first season, The Terror's second installment is taking a real-life tragedy and giving it a haunting supernatural spin that will likely give you nightmares from its season premiere on AMC in August, all the way until the finale.

In the first trailer for season two of the anthology series, the show trades the frigid location of the Northwest Passage (and the 19-century British ships trapped there) for an equally horrifying real-life place: an American internment camp during World War II. Soon the Us citizens of Japanese descent who are forced there begin to suspect that the rash of recent deaths in their community are the result of a malevolent shape-shifting spirit.

A young man named Chester Nakayama (Greek's Derek Mio) decides to figure out the root cause and destroy the evil before it can murder anyone else, though he's warned that "anywhere you go, it follows you.

Kellyanne Conway To Reporter On Hatch Act: “Can You Leave, Please?”

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is, apparently, in no mood to discuss her alleged violations of the Hatch Act. MSNBC White House reporter Eamon Javers added this terrific little insider’s tidbit to the latest Conway controversy.

“I was just standing in an office in the Wh press office when Kellyanne Conway came in,” Javers tweeted today. “I asked for her reaction to this. She pointed to the door and said ‘can you leave, please?’ Later, I asked her again, and she said: ‘I have no reaction. Why would I give you a reaction?'”

News broke this morning that the U.S. Office of Special Counsel – an independent government agency unrelated to the Mueller investigation – is recommending that Conway be removed from her job for repeated violations of the Hatch Act. (The Hatch Act bars federal workers from engaging in partisan politics.)

According to the Osc, Conway has repeatedly

‘The Terror: Infamy’ Team Talks ‘Great Responsibility’ in Telling Tales of Japanese Internment Camps

  • Variety
In the second chapter of AMC’s “The Terror” franchise, a number of suspicious deaths rock a a tight-knight Japanese-American during World War II. As the season progresses, the show explores the internment camps, something which showrunner Alexander Woo believes has been thus far underrepresented in storytelling.

“There has been criminally very little done on-screen,” Woo said of the camps at the Atx Television Festival in Austin, Texas Thursdays. “We have a great responsibility to show them in as much detail and with as much accuracy as possible.”

Woo, who co-created the second season of the anthology drama with Max Borenstein, reached out to a famous expert — survivor George Takei — for aid in crafting the story honestly.

“One day, I got a call from Alex — he lives in the same neighborhood,” Takei said. “He came over and explained the project to me. I consider this chapter of American history…to be an [overlooked,] important chapter.

Wgtc’s Motor City Comic Con 2019 Recap And Gallery

Even though I cover a handful of conventions in the Detroit area each year, there are none quite like Motor City Comic Con. I don’t know about you, but there’s just a certain feeling that comes over me once I set foot in the Suburban Collection Showplace every May. This time was especially significant because I was able to take part in the event’s 30th anniversary celebration.

Had you dropped by Novi this past weekend, then you may agree with me in saying that attendance records may very well have been shattered. Fortunately, the venue expanded its showroom space, thereby making the area nearly twice as large. If you don’t believe me, check out an overhead shot of what probably accounted for only 20% of what was there to be explored in the gallery below. And while you’re browsing the slideshow, feel free to admire some choice cosplayers as well.

‘Big Bang Theory’ Ends 12-Year Run With Eye On The Prize (& Big Surprise Guest)

‘Big Bang Theory’ Ends 12-Year Run With Eye On The Prize (& Big Surprise Guest)
Spoiler Alert: This story contains details of The Big Bang Theory series finale that aired tonight.

In the end, The Big Bang Theory took the prize with a series finale that delivered satisfying surprises for all of the core characters but kept hold of the show’s taut pace, tart zingers, and deadpan irony despite all the obvious temptations to over-inflate the comedy vehicle beyond its specifications. The 279th and final episode of the history-making CBS hit comedy, which finished its 12-year mission with a picture-perfect landing that was capped, fittingly, by an award acceptance speech by Jim Parsons.

The trophy this time was the Nobel Prize medal and technically the winner was actually Parson’s on-air alter ego, Sheldon Cooper. The Southern-born brainiac and Caltech physicist has been the show’s signature character

Star Wars Fans Are Worried About Game Of Thrones Creators’ New Trilogy

When Disney announced that Game of Thrones co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were writing a series of new Star Wars films, there was much rejoicing. After all, GoT is the benchmark for quality fantasy, providing years of top-tier entertainment that’s politically complex, full of fascinating and charismatic characters and with extremely satisfying plotting. If they could turn their talents to a galaxy far far away, we might be in for something truly special. Then the final season began airing and it’s safe to say that it hasn’t exactly provided what fans wanted.

I won’t spoil things here, but they consider that the show’s treatment of some important characters has ruined them, with many loudly yelling online that they feel that the eight years they’ve invested in the series have been totally wasted. And now, with Game of Thrones apparently turning out to be an all-time great anticlimax,
