‘This Is Us’ finale leaves us with horribly emotional cliffhangers

Go ahead and exhale, This Is Us fans, because we made it – for now. To paraphrase Kevin Pearson, that tense breath we’ve held in throughout a harrowing second season can now be released…but the future is more uncertain than ever.

The Season 2 finale Tuesday night had us all playing the worst case scenario game while flipping out in all manner of ways (this reporter whispered “I’m mad” to no one in particular).

Since early Season 1, the central mystery of This Is Us was how and when Jack Pearson died and exactly what effects his death had on the rest of his family. Most of Season 2 built toward this reveal, to the point where we all but watched a man burn to death after the Super Bowl. Fun!

Jack Pearson will still be on the show (and in our hearts) in Season 3, but it looks like we’ll be seeing more of his past, particularly his time in Vietnam. And let’s not forget that This Is Us does flash-forwards now, so while we’re freaking out about catatonic Toby and Kevin/Zoe flying to Vietnam, we can also, concurrently, freak out about who Tess and Randall aren’t ready to see in the future.

Did one of Randall and Beth’s worst case scenarios come true? What’s going on with Toby? Oh, and where’s Rebecca in all this? GOOD QUESTION.

The Season 4 trailer for ‘Better Call Saul’ goes darker than ever before

The minds behind Better Call Saul have said that Walter White and Jesse Pinkman will not appear in Season 4 of the Breaking Bad spinoff — but by the look of this trailer, things are getting bad for Saul. As he tries to claw his way back to being a lawyer after the events of Season 3, a darker underground calls to him. Who knows who might be lurking there?

Jodie Whittaker the New ‘Doctor Who’

Published

“All of this is new to me,” says the Doctor. And she’s not alone.

The trailer for Doctor Who Season 11, starring Jodie Whittaker as the Time Lord’s first female incarnation, was released at San Diego Comic Con Thursday. And while the locations we glimpsed are familiar to any Who fan — quarries, beaches, corridors, the wreck of an alien ship — there’s a distinct freshness to it all.

Part of that comes from Whittaker’s youthful energy, which makes a distinct change from grumpy predecessor Peter Capaldi. It bubbles out through words spoken in her native Yorkshire accent. (Other than “brilliant!”, the one word she spoke in the final post-regeneration scene of last year’s “Twice Upon A Time,” we’ve never heard Whittaker talk in character as the Doctor before.)

It also shows in the fresh take on the Doctor’s costume and the redesign of her all-important little helper, the Sonic Screwdriver.

Part of that freshness is due to her new permanent companions — three of them, numbers which haven’t been seen in the TARDIS since the early 1980s, not counting brief sojourns with Rory, Amy and River Song back in Season 6, and a more diverse representation of folks than the Doctor’s vessel has ever seen.

All we know so far is their names — Yasmin, Ryan and Graham — and the fact that they have some sort of connection to the Doctor. “If I ask very nicely,” she says in a post-regeneration moment of vulnerability, “will you be my new best friends?”

The Doctor Who fandom has already answered that one with a resounding “yes” — as shown in the other video the new Who team brought to Comic Con.

Doctor Who Season 11, the first to be helmed by new showrunner Chris Chibnall, warps onto our screens this October. ”
