Super-Old Show of the Week
Congrats are in order for the cast and creators of "Supernatural," the unkillable CW show that aired its 300th episode this week. It's an incredible milestone for several reasons (do you know anyone who actually watches it?), including this: The pilot aired on Sept. 13, 2005, officially making "Supernatural" older than the iPhone, Instagram, Twitter, Uber, Google Chrome, and Barron Trump. We can't believe it, either.

Super Bowl Champion of the Week
Sunday's Big Game™ was a big snooze, the ads were underwhelming, and the halftime show ... happened at halftime. But there were some highlights, thanks almost entirely to Jordan Peele. The second trailer for his upcoming horror flick, Us, trended all day (and into the night), and the sneak peek at his "Twilight Zone" reboot — which was cleverly disguised as a technical glitch in CBS' Super Bowl broadcast — was a rare "Wait, what?!?" risk during an event where advertisers spend so much on sure bets. The Patriots won the game, but Peele won the night ... and that's what really matters, right?

Too-Short Trailer of the Week
Another Super Bowl highlight? A new, albeit painfully-too-brief trailer for Avengers: Endgame (maybe we should just call it a "teaser"?). Since it dropped, we've been re-watching it repeatedly for clues, but so far, all we've been able to gather is that the world is in shambles and Captain America looks angry. Marvel is known for editing their trailers to avoid spoilers, but we definitely would've liked to have seen a bit more here.

"Game of Thrones" Tease of the Week
By now, we all know Winter arrives on April 14. That's when "Game of Thrones" begins its eighth (and final) season, and HBO has been doing everything to satisfy the show's fervent fanbase until then. This week, that meant releasing stills from Season 8, and while they don't really show us much, everyone does look concerned (which, in turn, makes us concerned). Also, everyone looks even colder than usual, which doesn't bode well for the living, breathing citizens of Westeros. We have plenty of questions, though chief among them is this: How does Dany keeps getting those fab coats made so quickly?

Streaming Peek of the Week
Maybe you caught the new trailer for "Hanna" during Super Sunday, which included an offer to watch the pilot for 24 hours on Prime Video. The series is an adaptation of the 2011 action film, starring Saoirse Ronan and Eric Bana. The good news is that the episode was great, giving the story space to breathe and taking a little extra time to get to know the characters. Leads Esme Creed-Miles and Joel Kinnaman are excellent as the adolescent assassin and her ex-CIA father on the run. The bad news? We have to wait until March to watch the rest of the season.

Casting Trivia of the Week
We can't wait to sink our teeth into "The Walking Dead" when it returns on Sunday, Feb. 10, so we pulled together some of our favorite casting trivia around the zombie drama. Like, did you know that Thomas Jane was up for the role of Rick Grimes, which eventually went to Andrew Lincoln? Or that Norman Reedus auditioned for a different role, but proved so popular that he had the role of Daryl written for him? Want to know even more? Watch the video:
Casting Calls: "The Walking Dead"
Universe Expansion of the Week
We were thrilled when we learned earlier this year that a "Star Trek" spinoff starring Michelle Yeoh was officially in development at CBS All Access. And Thursday's "Star Trek: Discovery" gave us an unexpected glimpse at what that series might look like, with a first look at Captain Philippa Georgiou (decked out in black) surrounded by her new crew (also in black) on her all-black ship, expounding the virtues of Starfleet's Section 31 division, (an autonomous, semi-covert organization that has been a part of the Trek universe since "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.") The whole setup looks pretty kick-ass, and we can't wait for a darker take on the "Star Trek" universe.

Blood Queen of the Week
Milla Jovovich already rules our hearts, so it makes sense to us that the actress/model/musician ("The Divine Comedy" was a pretty good album!) would rule the rest of the world, too. Which is why we couldn't wait to talk to her about her role as Nimue the Blood Queen in the upcoming Hellboy reboot. And luckily for us, Jovovich had plenty to say. Of course, unluckily for humanity, it sounds like Nimue definitely takes her "Blood Queen" title pretty seriously.
