Teen Titans Go!
The Teen Titans are on the move. Original episodes of Cartoon Network's quirky superhero comedy Teen Titans Go! return this week on a new night and time, Thursdays at 6/5c.
Kicking things off is a special episode that mixes live-action sequences. In "Puppets, Whaaat?," team leader Robin grows so frustrated with the lack of respect he feels his super friends are showing him that he gives them an extreme makeover, marionette edition. Wishing that Beast Boy, Raven, Cyborg and Starfire would fall into line, he makes a deal with The Puppet Wizard, who turns the entire team into real-life playthings. Hilarity, as always, ensues.
If you're going to binge, you might as well do it in Blu-ray. With A&E's crime drama Longmire set to return in a few weeks, the first two seasons get a high-def release from Warner Archive Collection on Tuesday, May 27. The six-disc set Longmire, Seasons 1 & 2 includes all 23 episodes, three featurettes and two director's cut episodes with commentary from exec producers Greer Shephard and Hunt Baldwin.
The zombies are coming! Or at least, the pseudo-zombies. On Thursday The CW officially announced that it will be transforming the comic book series iZombie into a TV show, set to premiere at midseason. And now DC Collectibles, the merchandising wing of DC Entertainment, whose Vertigo imprint published the series, is revealing an upcoming statue of the comic's main character, in all her brain-eating glory.
Based on the designs of the comic-series' artist Michael Allred, and sculpted by Phil Ramirez, the statue is approximately 9.25 inches tall and will go on sale this November for $99.95.
When the fourth season of Falling Skies premieres in two months, the weary warriors of the 2nd Mass have little time to savor their recent victory over the alien invaders. The Espheni may have been weakened in last summer's finale, but they are still a threat, and will once again wreak havoc on our heroes.
This past weekend at WonderCon in Anaheim, California, TNT screened a brand new trailer for the season — and TV Guide Magazine has an exclusive online first look.
Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 2: Villains in Paradise
The Robot Chicken gang is taking another crack at the DC Comics universe and it's going to be Doom's day. The hapless cadre of criminals known as the Legion of Doom steal the spotlight (and the laughs) in Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 2: Villains in Paradise, the follow-up to the 2012 collaboration between Adult Swim's irreverent stop-motion animation parody series and the comic-book giant (premiering Sunday, April 6 at 11:30 p.m./10:30c on Cartoon Network.)
Batman and Robin are really going to need to load up their utility belts this time. A new story in DC Comics' popular Batman '66 digital series — based on the beloved Adam West TV series — spotlights two of the Dyanamic Duo's most iconic villains.
"For our latest story, artist Jonathan Case who kicked off the series, is returning for another big three-parter where The Joker and Catwoman bust out of confinement and turn Gotham City upside down," says series writer Jeff Parker. "We also see several other regular villains from the series in part one, where the Arkham Institute hosts a talent show featuring their criminal patients! Joker and Catwoman have a scheme to literally mess with everybody's minds."
