Because the original run of Marvel Comics’ Runaways was relatively short compared to many other series, Joshua Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the co-creators of Hulu’s live-action adaptation, have been very deliberate about not rushing through the show’s plot in favour of taking time to build out its characters and the world they exist in. That’s what makes a certain character from Runaways lore appearing in the latter half of the sophomore season so unexpected.

Damn, 2018 sure was a cruel year for pop culture fans, with tons of beloved characters being killed off in television, movies, and video games. Not to mention long-running TV shows being axed off this mortal coil forever (some of which, frankly, really needed to be put out of their misery).

The year in horror began with Get Out winning an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, and went on to include big-screen landmarks like A Quiet Place, Hereditary, and Halloween. But 2018 also yielded a high concentration of juicy horror in 2018 on the small screen, too. Here are eight reasons why.

Following the dramatic climax of Runaways’ first season, the team of superpowered kids are on the run and realising that their friendship might be the only thing that can keep them alive.

The latest trailer for the show’s second season doubles down on the importance of the kids learning how to wield their powers to protect themselves, but it also introduces a hell of a lot more magic into the mix. And it looks really cool.

The online streaming situation in Australia isn't as dire as it once was, with once VPN-only services such as Netflix and Prime Video readily available in local form. Hulu, however, is one of the big players still missing from the picture, though with Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox, this looks like it could change, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger.

Home alone, a young woman scrolls through vintage black-and-white films of 1920s dancers. It’s all flapper-filled fun until she lands on The Rizzle — also the name of Josh Tanner’s short film, made for Hulu’s Huluween Film Fest. The Rizzle, as you’ll see, is actually a very sinister blast from the past, cleverly disguised by some very snappy dance moves.

Apple's new streaming service reportedly has a $US1 ($1.37) billion budget, but apparently it can't buy some nerve. The company has long censored its walled-garden offerings on platforms like the App Store, and per a report in the Wall Street Journal on Saturday, Apple is still aiming to keep its content offerings squeaky clean, with little "gratuitous sex, profanity or violence."

Castle Rock’s season finale is next week. But if you thought you had an idea of where the Stephen King-inspired mystery series was heading, this week’s episode, “Henry Deaver,” will make you rethink everything. Or, it’ll confirm all the sneaking suspicions you’ve had all along. Or maybe...both.
