futurama-2-d-blacktop

This week, "Futurama" returns (for the last time... again) to Comedy Central. And once again, John DiMaggio--who's voiced the shifty and shiftless Bender since 1999--has to say farewell to the beloved yet still ratings-challenged animated series.

"I think it's a little harder on the production staff," he tells me, simply because they outnumber the voice cast and each time the show is resurrected in some form, these animators, writers, and crew members have to adjust their lives for full-time work on a show. That's not to say it hasn't hit him and the other voice actors hard, although he's philosophical about the latest cancellation: "Hey, we've been doing this show since 1999. We've been very fortunate, we've got more than 100 episodes. It's a rarity to have a show these days that's lasted as long as it has and come back from the dead so many times."

Each week, MTV Geek will sit down with the writers of TNT's alien invasion drama "Falling Skies" and in a spoiler-heavy interview about the developments in the latest episode. Who lives, who dies, and what strange new factions will develop in the third season as the 2nd Mass escalates their conflict with the alien invaders.

When the shooting starts, it's not just the Eshpeni the 2nd Mass has to worry about as another group of humans is introduced in this week's episode of "Falling Skies." But not everyone will survive first contact with this new group who may either be friends or the chance to restore the United States.

In this week's spoiler interview, writer John Wirth ("The Cape," "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") talks about the human cost of alien conflict, writing drama around loss, and how "Falling Skies" might just be the story of our times.

Each week, MTV Geek will sit down with the writers of TNT's alien invasion drama "Falling Skies" and in a spoiler-heavy interview about the developments in the latest episode. Who lives, who dies, and what strange new factions will develop in the third season as the 2nd Mass escalates their conflict with the alien invaders.

What's in the basement? And what's up with Anne's baby? The second part of this week's "Falling Skies" season three premiere offered more questions and paranoia as we learned the scope of the human resistance's alliance with the Volm and rebel Skitters. You can't just use crazy alien tech and not expect something weird to happen, right?

For this episode, we spoke with writers David Weddle and Bradley Thompson about the cost of fighting to win and some of the historical precedents that went into developing the themes of the current season of "Falling Skies."

tainted_love_poster_official2

With its stylish camerawork and fast-paced editing, the digital series, "Tainted Love" comes alive because of its pumped-up soundtrack. As Black Berry (Orlando Jones) and Jezebel Jackson (Deanna Russo) find themselves in a robbery gone horribly wrong, the music jumps back and forth between the comedic, dramatic, and action elements.

Composer Matt Hutchinson spoke to MTV Geek about scoring "Tainted Love," writing the music cues for the graphic novel scenes, and matching the music to the picture: Read More...

killjoys1-hdr

Gerard Way is one of the most introspective comic creators I've had the chance to speak to in recent memory... And he's had time to think: following the dissolution of My Chemical Romance this past spring, Way has become philosophical about what's next, after being front-man for one of the biggest bands of the last decade. Part of what's next? 'The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys': a dystopian comic which is part sci-fi adventure story, part exploration of the burden of fame and expectations.

'Killjoys,' whose first issue is out this week from Dark Horse Comics is Way's attempt to bring together his music and his second gig as a comic writer, something he deliberately avoided with 2007's 'The Umbrella Academy' in the hopes of letting readers see Gerard Way the comic writer... And not Gerard Way the rock star comic writer. I spoke with Way recently about 'Killjoys' (whose name serves as the subtitle to MCR's 2010 album "Danger Days") and bringing together the two parts of his art, along with being a new dad, getting darker in his storytelling, and "Scorsese violence" in his latest work.

Plus, see an exclusive music video teaser for 'The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys featuring My Chemical Romance music - and a six-page preview from the debut issue: Read More...

Batman-Year-Zero_

Over the next few weeks, MTV Geek will be taking a deeper look at writer Scott Snyder's upcoming character-defining arc, "Batman: Zero Year." Launching this week in "Batman" #21 with Greg Capullo on art, it sets the stage for Bruce Wayne's revised origin, starting with seeds planted all the way in "Batman" #0. In the clip after the jump, Snyder talks about the origins of the story, fear of touching the origins of one of the most iconic characters in the world, and bringing Bruce back from the dead.

Plus, this Friday, we'll have a spoiler-heavy video feature on "Batman" #21. So check back then for the next installment of MTV Geek's Batman: Zero Year - Behind The Bat series!

falling-skies-2ndmass

Each week, MTV Geek will sit down with the writers of TNT's alien invasion drama "Falling Skies" and in a spoiler-heavy interview about the developments in the latest episode. Who lives, who dies, and what strange new factions will develop in the third season as the 2nd Mass escalates their conflict with the alien invaders.

This week's first part of the two-hour season premiere, "On Thin Ice," joins the Second Mass at their settlement in Charlotte, NC, seven months after the events of the season two finale. A new alien race, the humanoid Volm, has joined Tom Mason and his people in their battle against the Eshpeni Overlords, while a rebel faction of Skitters has also put their spider-y mitts in to help out. Tensions are understandably high.

We spoke with writer Remi Aubuchon (who also serves a executive producer for the series) about the episode... And what's coming next: Read More...

zach-galligan-hatchet-interview-mtv-geek

Good things come to those who wait. That’s a saying as old as Larry King, but it rings true for fans of Adam Green’s Hatchet series. Having released the first in 2006, then the second four years later, things are coming to an end with Hatchet III on June 14... Or are they? The third installment picks up with scream queen Danielle Harris reprising her role as Marybeth Dunston. She’s drenched in blood and Sheriff Fowler (Zach Galligan) isn’t buying what she’s selling.

Wait a minute, you mean the Zach Galligan who most of us grew up wanting to date, or be?  Yes, the man who’s widely known as Billy from Gremlins is heading back to the big screen as the Sheriff of the town that can’t catch a break. So what do you talk about when you get a chance to chat with Zach? Whether or not he owns a Gizmo, of course (spoiler: he doesn't, he wasn't even offered one): Read More...

HEATHER_doerksen-575

Heather Doerksen is about to go big. As one of the rising stars in the upcoming summer blockbuster 'Pacific Rim,' Doerksen is also one of the few female pilots of Jaegers, giant robot mechs that stand as humanity's last hope against a monster invasion.

We had the chance to chat with Doerksen over the phone in advance of the movie's release, and talked about the intense physical training she went through in order to pilot the Jaeger, working with director Guillermo Del Toro ("Hellboy"), and her upcoming projects with Marvel Knights Animation: Read More...

AQB_201_WIDEUnitedNations

Has success changed the Aquabats? The Emmy-nominated "The Aquabats! Super Show!" is back for a second season on The Hub, and band front man/series creator Christian Jacobs describes the positive response to the show as "surreal." "The Aquabats have always kind of been the nerd fraternity in the music scene, the Lambda Lambda Lambdas. We've always had a fanbase that's been loyal to us and we've been steadily growing over the last hundred years we've been a band."

Still, Jacobs says, he was worried that the live-action/animated series might not resonate with kids. "We all like it because it references things we grew up watching," he says, noting the mix of Saturday morning influences at the heart of "Super Show!" which ambitiously blended genres and formats in its first season (Jacobs will tell me later it was a little too ambitious, perhaps).

Fortunately, this colorful, kinetic, musical series did just that, earning another batch of episodes with the Hub, and allowing Jacobs and his band of misfit musicians and sometimes superheroes to have more adventures involving space, monsters, space monsters, and whatever other oddities Jacobs and the show's writers can throw at the domino mask-wearing heroes. "I go to my kid's soccer games and kids call me 'Bat Commander' and stuff," he says. "It's a show for kids, but really it's a show for all of us."
