Superman fans have been wondering for quite some time if the Man of Steel will be making a guest appearance on his cousin's show, "Supergirl". Turns out, he will be!
Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's semi-regular rundown of entertainment-related kerfuffles. Not anxious enough already? Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week.
Ask Alan took last week off while I recovered from getting my wisdom teeth out (writing during that period was easy; talking, less so), so because of that — and because some of you will be braving the malls on Black Friday — we give you this week's installment a few days early.
Greedy men in cinema are always the same: They're reprehensible, sure, but they're always so cocky and self-important in their "Wall Street" slickness that they become humorless antiheroes. Plenty of the most towering characters in TV and film are greedy dudes who excuse their bad behavior with financial success.

I stopped posting rumors about Showtime's "Twin Peaks" revival back in September after creators Mark Frost and David Lynch pleaded with the internet to #KeeptheMysteryAlive, but here's a fun tidbit for fans in the meantime: a series of four Japanese coffee commercials directed by Lynch, released two years after the end of the series and one year after the release of the polarizing prequel film "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" (which was, apparently, a big hit in Japan).
The advertisements, recently unearthed by Open Culture, depict Kyle MacLachlan's coffee-loving FBI agent Dale Cooper tracking down a missing Japanese woman in the quirky Washington town; cameo appearances include cast members Madchen Amick (Shelly Johnson), Kimmy Robertson (Lucy Moran), Harry Goaz (Andy Brennan), Michael Horse (Deputy Hawk) and the late Catherine E.

Delight in all four quirky chapters of the beverage-inspired mystery below.

Here we are again! “Jessica Jones” has been released in all it’s hard-to-watch-but-infinitely-interesting glory. Much like with “Daredevil,” recapping a show that has been put out for binge-watching creates a unique set of challenges. If I recap too quickly, people will stone me in the digital streets for spoilers. If I recap too slowly, I risk morphing into the Pokemon Slowpoke.
Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll bee “recapping” the Netflix series with my own twist: stream-of-consciousness.
