Servant review – a decent M Night Shyamalan show? Now there's a twist

Be afraid … Apple TV+ is serving up creepy dolls, creepier nannys and all sorts of supernatural shenanigans thanks to M Night Shyamalan

Apple TV+’s new show Servant centres on Dorothy and Sean, a wealthy couple with exhaustingly successful lives: she is a local newscaster with family money, he is a chef to the rich and famous. They dwell in a sumptuous if slightly gothic Manhattan townhouse with their new baby whom they have named, because we live in a morally derelict age with no sense of decorum or shame any more, Jericho.

Or Do They? For this is a supernatural thriller, created by Tony Basgallop and executive produced by M Night Shyamalan, so nothing can be straightforward. Or quick. Or unbeautifully framed. But we’ll get to that.

‘Servant’ Twists Itself Into Knots

‘Servant’ Twists Itself Into Knots
While many genres lend themselves as well to television as film, horror has generally seemed better suited to the big screen. There’s something fundamental to the nature of horror stories that demands the spell they cast over the audience not last very long — especially because their plots often require the heroes to do dumb things that the audience will start to question after a while. Horror can work incredibly well on television, but usually when it’s cross-bred with another genre (action for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, crime procedural

Ten Best: Things WWE did in The Attitude Era!

  • Nerdly
If you’ve read my Top 10: Terrible Things that WWE Did During The Attitude Era article you’ll probably know that this article was coming. I couldn’t do a list of bad things without following it up with a list of the best things that WWE did back in the infamous Attitude Era. So, here we go…

10. PPVs Felt Different

If you watch WWE PPVs now, which I do, you’ll likely notice that they pretty much all look the same. Sure, the logos are different, but the set-up is all the same. It’s not really the biggest deal, but I did always get a lot of enjoyment out of seeing the unique sets that WWE would implement on their shows back in this era. If it was WWF Armageddom the stage would be littered with chain link, tanks, barrels, scaffolding. If it was WWF Backlash, we

Former bad boy Skeet Ulrich is the sweetest Instagram dad ever

  • The AV Club
In the ’90s, Skeet Ulrich often played the unrepentant bad boy in movies like The Craft and Scream, like a Teen Beat version of Johnny Depp. Since then, Ulrich has transitioned into a solid TV career with series like Jericho, Law And Order: L.A., and, of course Riverdale, in which he plays the pops of Jughead Jones.

Review: Titans: The Complete First Season

  • Comicmix
Fans were horrified when the overly dark teaser trailer arrived last summer, with a wet, angry Robin (Brenton Thwaites) declaring, “Fuck Batman!” This was certainly not the Bob Haney and Nick Cardy version or even the Marv Wolfman and George Pérez version that was a direct ancestor. As a result, the Titans series which helped launch the DC Universe streaming service was approached with a great deal of apprehension.

The bottom line is that it turned out better than one feared although it really had little to do with the once best-selling title that is credited with saving DC Comics from creative failure. The 11 episodes are now collected by Warner Home Entertained as Titans: The Complete First Season, a two-disc Blu-ray offering out now.

For those unwilling to shell out for the channel, this and the other shows coming to disc is a great way to catch up.

Titans’ Aqualad Probably Won’t Be Gay, But Another Hero Might Be

When it comes to Titans‘ second season, there’s certainly a lot to look forward to. Not only will Deathstroke emerge as the new big bad, but we’ll also meet the likes of Superboy, Jericho, Ravager, Mercy Graves and Bruce Wayne in the flesh. In addition to those folks, it’s worth mentioning how a live action version of Aqualad will also be along for the ride, someone who hasn’t been discussed all that much to this point.

Those of you who are intimately familiar with Atlanteans know of how there have been multiple versions of Aqualad in pop culture. More often than not, the iteration we’re used to seeing is that of Garth, who’ll be played by Drew Van Acker on the Titans show itself. And if comic books aren’t your cup of tea, you’ve likely at least been introduced to him by

‘Blood and Treasure’ Trailer: CBS Promises Fun ‘Indiana Jones’-esque Action This Summer

  • Indiewire
Despite much of the network’s airtime being devoted to procedurals, CBS has developed a recent tradition of devoting its summer programming slots to more out-there genre programming — shows that might defy expectations and represent more bonkers storytelling.

This year, look to “Blood and Treasure” as the latest show to follow in this tradition. A modern-day action thriller with touches of “Indiana Jones” and “National Treasure,” creators Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia deliver an odd couple globe-trotting adventure about an antiquities expert and a cunning art thief who team up to take down a notorious thief/terrorist (played by “The Mummy’s” Oded Fehr.)

Matt Barr, previously seen in the CW’s “Valor” and Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow,” leads the cast alongside Sofia Pernas, whose recent TV credits include “Jane the Virgin” and NBC’s “The Brave.” The series also stars Michael James Shaw, Katia Winter, James Callis, Alicia Coppola,

Titans Has Cast Its Bruce Wayne For Season 2

After surprising us all with a rather impressive first season, there’s got to be a new level of anticipation going into Titans‘ sophomore run. Already, casting has been heating up, as major characters like Superboy, Deathstroke and Jericho have been added to the equation.

To be completely honest, I’m still in a state of shock while having to report today’s news. I say that because even though Batman appeared in season 1’s finale, I never thought we’d actually see Bruce Wayne on the series – and I’m not counting his silhouette.

As it turns out though, Iain Glen has landed one of the most coveted roles in the history of cinema, as he’s now part of an exclusive club to have played Bruce Wayne. At this time, it’s unclear if he’ll actually suit up as the Dark Knight (stuntmen did the honor during
