Last week I was on vacation, which was a great time to catch up on some TV. Kotaku’s editor-in-chief Stephen recommended The Leftovers to me, an HBO show that finished a three season run last summer. I didn’t expect to like the show as much as I did, and now all I want to do is talk about it. Jason Schreier and I sat…
The New Girl series finale airs tonight, although the show should have ended at least a year ago. Here are some characters from that very good show, ranked from best to worst.
In news that I expect will thrill my comedy-loving colleagues, comedy cop show Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been rescued by NBC, which is bringing the series back for a sixth season.
Today, Fox announced that Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s fifth season will also be its last. As it turns out, many of us Kotaku and Compete watch the show, and we have some thoughts.
Someone went ahead and recreated the island from the TV show Lost using Far Cry 5's map editor. It’s not completely to scale, but user PSFREAK33 did their best to add every memorable location from the show, from the DHARMA Initiative stations to Sun’s garden. The map’s currently only available on PS4.
The HBO show Westworld is largely focused on a single question: what does it mean for people to kill and abuse robots that look, act, and possibly even feel like humans?
Legion returned with its season two premiere last night. I still can’t get it out of my head. Neither can Kotaku’s Gita Jackson, which is why we decided to sit down and discuss the episode at length.
In season eight of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, debuting March 24 on Discovery Family, Twilight Sparkle and friends leave the pony empire of Equestria to found a school teaching friendship to the friendless hordes beyond. Is there a toy of this school? Of course there’s a toy of this school.
TV Guide recently spoke to Showtime’s President and CEO, David Nevins, and asked what was up with that Halo series that got announced forever ago. It’s “still in very active development,” he said.
Black Mirror’s best episode of season four is, again, a love story.
Stranger Things came back this weekend with a second season. Staff writer Gita Jackson sat down today with Compete’s Maddy Myers and Kotaku social media manager Alex Bedder to chat about Ghostbuster Halloween costumes, punk rockers and the perfection that is Joyce Byers.
Centipede was released for the arcade by Atari in 1980. It’s a game where you swerve back and forth as you fire at bugs and try not to get eaten. Halt and Catch Fire featured it in its very first episode and again in last night’s series finale, proving once and for all the show is more than just the sum of its…
Netflix dropped another season of BoJack Horseman this weekend. As is tradition, I sat down and watched all of it all in one go without realizing. While Kotaku’s managing editor Riley MacLeod, intern Chloe Spencer and I had some problems with the fourth season’s execution, we all still love this weird, depressing,…
Well, that was kind of a bummer.
AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire returns tonight for its fourth and final season. It’s become one of the best prestige television shows still left standing, and while there’s a lot of stuff it gets right and does well, few things show off the series’ charm like the episode it dedicated to Super Mario Bros.
Funcom’s supernatural conspiracy MMO recently got a reboot, and now it’s getting its own television show. Johnny Depp’s Infinitum Nihil and G4C Innovation have teamed up to produce a live-action TV series based on The Secret World. Or Secret World Legends. Whichever.
It was a jam-packed episode of Game of Thrones this week, and there’s a lot to talk about. Let’s get into it, with another bonus episode of Kotaku Splitscreen.
Last night’s Rick and Morty wasn’t the premiere, as the first episode of season 3 ran on April 1st. This is the start of the season proper, and while it wasn’t as inventive as classic episodes like “Total Rickall” or “Interdimensional Cable,” the confidence of the writing lets the show’s characters grow without…
If anything, the PlayStation VR headset makes an excellent TV prop. In episode seven of the current season of Syfy’s comic book-based space drama, Dark Matter, Six (Roger Cross) finds himself trapped inside a simulation powered by what seems to be ancient PlayStation technology.
