    No Marvel branding at all. I’m guessing this must’ve been too far along to cancel when they merged the TV division with the movie division.

    I always called it "magical means", but I do like "wizardry". It fits Trickster a bit.

    There's also the fact that it seems to have nothing to do with the MCU, or the Marvel Comics Universe, or the Daimon Hellstorm and Satana characters as portrayed in the comics (Helstrom seems to be even less of a Hellstorm show than Lucifer was a Lucifer show...and Lucifer the TV show had almost nothing in common with Lucifer the comic).

    It was originally titled Marvel’s Helstrom and picked up alongside a new Ghost Rider series. That would’ve tied it into Agents of SHIELD, but you’re right I believe its only current tie to the MCU is a Roxxon sign in the background.

    Soulmates is, I guess, individual stand alone stories.
    Watched ep 2 and.... I’m out.

    Not totally new, but I just saw that 'Dexter' is coming back to Showtime for a single season reboot next year.

    This pleases me very much!

    Yikes...that's a show that gradually went from being really good to being really, really bad...

    I just posted about this in the series finale thread. I hope they fix the mess they left us with. Otherwise, just don't bother!

    I don't know - this show went so far off the rails after being so, so good that I don't see how it can be salvaged.

    I'd say from the point the sister discovered what he does it just went steadily downhill and then off a cliff. I don't see how they can undo that.

    Yeah, I'm not sure I want more Dexter.

    I think it started to decline after the John Lithgow arc, got REALLY stupid with the Edward James Olmos arc, and then went more and more quickly downhill after that. By the end I was more than happy for it to be over.

    The ending of the series was not great but certainly it gives them immense freedom to do something new and different, and get back to what made the show great initially. I'm kind of excited for it honestly.

    Re-reading this I guess it's almost a Yogi Berra-ism o_O :p Hopefully you all get what I mean :)

    The problem is, that Deb was such an integral part of show, so it would be interesting to see if they can do a season without her

    Maybe by bringing back the original (season 1-4) showrunner? Which apparently is what they're doing.
