Marvel’s TV Takeover

Fresh from making the biggest box office movie of all time, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expanding onto the small-screen in a big way. Pilot TV looks ahead to the Disney+ shows set to explode onto your home screens.

The End Of The rOAd

Netflix’s stunning, nutso sci-fi drama has been cancelled prematurely. As crushing as that is, Pilot TV looks at how its legacy will certainly live on.

Cillian Murphy

Peaky Blinders is back and better than ever. We sat down with Cillian Murphy to talk about how the Birmingham-set gangster series keeps upping its game.

Bruce Lee was so fast, they actually had to run his films slower so you can see his moves.

Helen Mirren

She ruled the small screen in her Prime Suspect days – and now Helen Mirren is back on the box, taking the title role in a modern new take on Catherine The Great.

American Horror Story

As the twisted anthology prepares to go back in time for AHS: 1984, we take a look back season-by-season to find out how the spookiest show on TV got wilder and wilder.

The Box

This issue, we revisit the greatness of Seinfeld and how it rewrote the ‘90s TV rulebook, map out Frasier’s apartment, list the 10 best episodes of The Good Wife, talk Veronica Mars with Kristen Bell, and much more.
