HitFix First Look: ‘iZombie’ has a brand-new Comic-Con bag

And your friendly neighborhood critic will be moderating that panel

The 2014 Comic-Con kicks off a week from today in San Diego, and I'm going to be pressed into moderating duties for the CW's mid-season series "iZombie," starring Rose McIver (Vivian Scully on "Masters of Sex") as a young zombiefied woman who tries to mitigate her condition by taking a job in a morgue. It's adapted from the DC Comics series by the "Veronica Mars" team of Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero, featuring clips from the show and then a Q&A session, at 11:30 a.m. in Room 6BCF of the Convention Center.

Firewall & Iceberg Show, episode 20: Press tour, FX comedies & '24'

Dan and Alan break down 'Married' and 'You're the Worst'

Happy Thursday, boys and girls! Dan and I were able to break away from press tour activities for a while to record an in-person episode of the Firewall & Iceberg Show, in which we discussed recent press tour events, reviews FX's two new comedies, and broke down the "24: Live Another Day" finale.

Note: This was actually recorded yesterday (hence the "Happy Wednesday intro" and the references to the FX comedies debuting "tomorrow"), but technical issues delayed publishing until today. Sorry for the confusion.

The rundown:

00:00:00:00 - NBC
00:06:45:10 - ABC
00:11:03:21 - FX's Married
00:16:21:20 - FX's You're the Worst
00:21:23:27 - 24: Live Another Day

As always, you can send us questions at firewalliceberg@hitfix.com. There's also now a YouTube channel where you can subscribe to all upcoming Firewall & Iceberg videos, at https://www.youtube.com/show/firewalliceberg.

Review: USA's 'Satisfaction' & 'Rush' & FX's 'Married' & 'Youre the Worst'

USA and FX launch a bunch of new shows tonight, but are any of them any good?

Four new scripted shows debut tonight: two dramas on USA ("Rush" at 9, "Satisfaction" at 10), two comedies on FX ("Married" at 10, "You're the Worst" at 10:30). I loved none of them, but found enough interesting ideas, and enough overlap between several of them, to consider some kind of combined review.

Press tour: Why Karen Gillan can't be Scottish on 'Selfie'

The social media-themed 'Pygmalion' riff allegedly needs an American character at the center

Speaking in her native Scottish accent, Karen Gillan has one of the most charming and endearingly goofy voices in all of show business. So why on earth would "Suburgatory" alum Emily Kapnek — creator of "Selfie," a modern-day twist on "Pygmalion" starring Gillan as social media-obsessed Eliza and John Cho as Henry, the man who will turn her into a genuine lady — ask her to play the role as an American?

Press tour: ABC goes diverse with 'Black-ish,' 'Cristela' & more

Not just minority stars, but minority creators like Shonda Rhimes and John Ridley

"If you look at shows now that seem to lack diversity, they actually feel dated. America doesn't look like that anymore, and people want to see an America that looks like where they live."
