TV Review: Lucifer 3×24 ‘A Devil of My Word’ Is the Series’ Best Episode

It’s both bittersweet and devilishly unfair that Lucifer’s best episode might be its last. Monday night, three days after announcing the show’s cancellation, Fox aired the last episode of its third season, “A Devil of My Word.” And what an episode it was. Having wrapped up the arc of Charlotte …

Search for God Animates Compelling New ‘Preacher,’ Venerable ‘Supernatural’

What a striking coincidence that two of the most high profile supernatural fantasy shows on TV — ageless Supernatural, now in its eleventh season on The CW, and Preacher, just launched on AMC — revolve around the search for an absentee God. Some of the most profound theological and philosophical questions are being treated matter-of-factly and compellingly on pop TV. What is God’s active role in relation to mankind?

To recap the experiment, loathed by cat lovers everywhere: we put a living cat into a steel chamber along with a vial of hydrocyanic acid. There is a tiny amount of hydrocyanic acid, a radioactive substance, in the chamber. If even a single atom of the substance decays during the test period, it will trip a hammer, which will break the vial and kill the cat.

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 Finale – The Arrival of Negan

An entire nation of The Walking Dead watchers is feeling very twitchy and jumpy right about now as the hours tick down to what is arguably the most anticipated episode ever of AMC’s unlikely smash hit. Why so edgy?
