‘Star Trek: Discovery': 5 of Your Biggest Questions Answered
Major spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery’s” first two episodes. “Star Trek: Discovery” always had a lot to live up to. It’s the first new “Star Trek” TV show in over a decade, so it has to be both a new take on the franchise and a tribute to the original series. There’s over 50 years of canonical history to pick and choose from, but how do you do it without outright copying a previous installment, especially when the J.J. Abrams films have been just that? As the flagship product for CBS All Access, the network’s new streaming service, »

Harry Knowles Sex-Assault Allegations Prompt Staff Exodus at Ain't It Cool News
Several writers have resigned from the influential movie site Ain't It Cool News (AICN) after a woman came forward to accuse that site's 45-year-old founder, Harry Knowles, of having sexually assaulted her nearly two decades ago.
In a statement posted Monday to Twitter, Steve Prokopy, a Chicago-based writer who signs his reviews "Capone," called the choice to leave the site "a remarkably easy decision to make."
"I sincerely hope that the women impacted by any of these incidents have received all the support and strength they need to recover and heal," Prokopy said.

TV Review: ‘Young Sheldon’ on CBS
“Young Sheldon” is earnestly trying to do two things at once: function as a mainstream family comedy, and fit into the realm of single-camera half hours, which tend to be a bit more character-driven than most shows on CBS. “Young Sheldon,” which depicts “The Big Bang Theory’s” Sheldon Cooper as a precocious 9-year-old in East Texas, doesn’t quite gel in either arena in its initial outing. But the premise and a few performances are interesting enough to give the show some time to find its way.
Without question it was the right decision to avoid the multi-camera format with this project. The Sheldon that TV audiences have come to know over the course of 10 seasons of “The Big Bang Theory” can be a difficult person (which is partly the hook of both shows). Despite the fine work of Jim Parsons as the adult Sheldon, the physicist — given his genius Iq and his unwillingness to conform »

Did You Know Jessica Jones is the Most Watched Marvel Netflix Show?
Out of all the McU shows on Netflix Jessica Jones is the most-watched. That might come as a bit of a surprise since she seems to like acting surly and getting her drink on most of the time but it’s true according to Netflix’s numbers. It’s not too surprising since she’s a more down to earth character unlike the others such as Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist. Without any real need to explain Iron Fist is the last to be selected when people pick something to watch. His story isn’t horrible, but in comparison to the others it’s a

‘Kevin Can Wait’ Spent Less Than One Minute Mourning Erinn Hayes’ Character in Season 2 Premiere
Erinn Hayes’ last episode of “Kevin Can Wait” was not only shared with her Season 2 replacement, Leah Remini, but it was titled “Sting of Queens” — as if the creators’ long con to swap out Kevin James’ wives was already underway.
The series got such a bad rap after announcing it was letting Hayes go, viewers might have expected them to deal with her character’s departure with grace and respect. After all, even fans who weren’t overwhelmed by the news would need a good reason to forget about a woman they spent 24 episodes getting to know during Season 1.

Does “Diesel Brothers” Truly Teach Us About Cars?
The Discovery Channel first hit the airwaves in 1985. Since that time, the network has evolved from their presentation of purely educational documentaries on science, to include series that appeal to a wider segment of the population. There is a high level of competition among cable networks and the evolution has kept the network in step with their competitors. “The Diesel Brothers” is one such show. It’s still educational, but it is more entertaining for people who are passionate about diesel powered trucks, with some educational information slipped in as a courtesy.

Why Ray Donovan is Still Must See TV
Liev Schreiber has never been better. Four years (plus season 5 now) into Ray Donovan, and he’s still giving us a reason to watch, the very same reasons we tuned in to the show back in 2013. The crime drama actually broke pilot viewership records for Showtime, and majority of that probably came from Schreiber’s celebrity pull. After the first few episodes, though, we quickly realize that the pull of Donovan comes from its ensemble. Ann Biderman, creator, writer, and producer, has given us a few good works to feast on. Her resume may be short, but it includes TV
