Sooooo...you think you've got a large pile of GeekTV to watch every week and are somewhat thankful when some of those shows take a break? PREPARE FOR TONS MORE. Teen Titans, Runaways, Cloak and Dagger, Inhumans... the list grows every day. Now FOX adds to their X-Men universe with "The Gifted", premiering on FOX TV (naturally) this FALL...and we've got the first trailer!
Oh man. Let me tell you..I was worried. I've seen Orange is the New Black and I like it, but i'm not so in love that I watched into season 2. Learning the masterminds behind that show are behind the wheel of a comedy series based on GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) told me it would be funny and fearless, and that raised my expectations to a level higher than my hopes for the new Spider-Man film!! So yea...that made me worried. Now the first trailer has come and i'm grinning from ear to ear. Dive in and see why.

Less than a week after Captain Sensible fell offstage at their sold out show in Toronto, resulting in a broken rib, The Damned were forced to postpone three shows this past week, including Montreal, Boston and New York (dates are rescheduled for later this month). night, the band made a triumphant return at a sold out Stone Pony in Asbury Park - sitting on a specially built 'throne' created by his band mates and crew, Captain appeared to be feeling no pain as he blasted through the 90 minute set (plus two encores), confirming that the 40th anniversary tour is definitely back on!
"As movement is a bit awkward currently, I played last night seated, but it all went swimmingly and this epic 40th Anniversary tour is now firmly back on the road. We've played some great venues on the trip... and Asbury Park's Stone Pony is up there with the best of 'em. But I have to say I wish I'd waited till here before backflipping off the stage, as this one was only 3 feet high. D'oh!”
