New character poster for Death Note's Light Turner revealed

I've never seen DEATH NOTE the anime, though I've always loved the premise. The idea that just writing someone's name in a book leads to their death, and the implications of that, seems to lend itself to many interesting situations. Add on to that a cat-and-mouse game with a wiley detective, and you have the makings of a great show. So there's no guarantee that Netflix's American...

Keen! Amazon's live-action The Tick gets a much-needed costume revamp

THE TICK was required Saturday morning viewing in my youth, back when Saturday Mornings were a thing. It was basically this and MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 for me. I even loved the original (unfortunately short-lived) live-action version with Patrick Warburton as the eponymous superhero. So it's awesome to see Tick back in action, with Amazon Studios giving the new iteration...
