AMC’s new Monday night ten-part series THE TERROR is based on a novel by Dan Simmons, which is in turn based on real events.

Both were finally located in recent years (after the book was published, but before the series was made), but the fate of their crews is unknown. Simmons’ novel and the series, adapted by David Kajganich, imagine what might have happened to the men, combining historical observation with […]Read On »

In Season 4 of GOTHAM, Thursday nights on Fox, it appeared that young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) had killed Alexander Siddig’s character, the enigmatic and nefarious Ra’s al Ghul. However, this is GOTHAM, where the dead don’t always stay dead. Moreover, Siddig remains in the opening credits and has appeared in previews for future episodes, so it seems Ra’s isn’t done tormenting the future Batman just yet. The Sudan-born, English-educated Siddig has major genre cred. Siddig spent seven years as Dr. Julian Bashir in STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE. Other genre work includes REIGN OF FIRE (dragons), PRIMEVAL (dinosaurs), the […]Read On »
