A funny thing happened on the way to The Shannara Chronicles: Season 2 – the show went from unintentionally hilarious to really very good, peaking with a surprising, intense season finale.

In season two, the re-emergence of magic has the populace terrified, and an organization called The Crimson is hunting down magic users.

Only the Sword of Shannara can help defeat this new threat – and Allanon, Will and Eretria will be called upon to find it.

The Shannara Chronicles: Season Two premieres on Spike on Wednesday, October 10th.

Graphic Novels: Angel: Smile Time – Of Puppets and Vampires!

One of the best episodes of television’s Angel was an episode called Smile time – in which Angel became a muppet-like puppet while investigating a children’s show that appeared to be putting children into comas, while sporting Joker-like rictus-grins. Like the best eps of the series, Smile Time combined off-the-wall horror with equally off-the-wall humor.

IDW adapted the episode into a three-issue mini-series and followed it up with a puppet/werewolf date and a mini-series that followed Spike and green demon Lorne to Japan, where a Japanese version of the deadly kiddie show was doing the same thing to Japanese kids.
