While Yahoo has been producing a small amount of exclusive video content (such as the underseen faux reality series "Burning Love"), the company is now throwing its hat in the ring with the big boys that include Netflix and Amazon. At the end of June, Yahoo swooped in and saved "Community" from disappearing forever by ordering up a sixth season, and it wasn't long before movie talks were being thrown out there. But will the company squander what it is their biggest profile piece of programming yet by dishing it out in a format viewers (especially online) have moved away from?

Guardians Of The Galaxy
The Marvel-verse continues to expand and all you can do is get out of the way. And while Marvel has their next batch of movies planned through 2019, their current baby is this week's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" (our review). A sequel is already set for 2017, and it looks like they are feeling confident enough audiences will want even more, a small screen version of the heroes is in the works.

Ann Dowd and Amy Brenneman in "The Leftovers"
Loyalty is a bond that can be stronger than blood ties, but creating that connection requires a careful balance of trust and vulnerability to show that you can be both sensitive and stoic to the needs of someone else. But loyalty can also be dangerous, and that becomes clear in "The Leftovers' " fifth episode "Gladys," where we witness in rather chilling fashion how and why the Guilty Remnant stay so devoted to their cause even in the wake of horrific acts.

The Knick
If you've been paying attention at all to Comic-Con coverage this weekend, or in fact to the recent history of mainstream film, you know that the name of the game for studios is building expansive, sequel-ready worlds for total audience immersion. These films usually involve as much expensive, fantastical spectacle as possible. But as the latest promo for "The Knick" proves, turn of the century New York City can be every bit as absorbing as any far-fetched fantasia

The Walking Dead
Alright, time to be straight up honest here: even though it's one of the most popular shows on television right now, I have never watched an episode of "The Walking Dead." And for no real reason than I simply don't have time, and it's never managed to be one that interested me enough to catch up with it. So you tell me, should I make the effort?

Uma Thurman is the latest to join the massive ensemble — Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Emma Thompson, Daniel Brühl, Riccardo Scamarcio, Lily James, Jamie Dornan and Alicia Vikander — in the John Wells directed "Adam Jones."

True Detective
Given the pedigree of talent assembled for "True Detective" season one—Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Monaghan—and the actors already being tipped for season two (Colin Farrell), not to mention the widespread critical acclaim for the show, it's understandable rivals might be a little jealous. But leave it to FX CEO John Landgraf to fire a shot at HBO about their prestige drama.

Captain America: The First Avenger, Peggy Carter
The curious thing about the Marvel-verse is that the more it expands, the more strings need to be tied together to keep it all connected. And one strand that Marvel is continually threading belongs to Hayley Atwell's Agent Carter. First featured in "Captain America: The First Avenger," she returned in old-age makeup for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." And now the actress confirms she'll once again make a Marvel movie appearance, this time in "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron." And she can credit alcohol for helping make that happen.

Fargo
With the animated, Kickstarter funded animated effort "Anomalisa" presumably on the way, it's not like we have nothing to look forward to from Charlie Kaufman ("Synecdoche, New York," "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind") but it has been frustrating watching his projects sputter in development (don't get us started on the meta-musical "Frank Or Francis"). Which is why this latest bit of news is a bummer... but has a silver lining.

Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood & James Marsden Westworld
In the canon of remakes-that-are-taking-forever-to-get-made, "Westworld" would be up there. The project is slowly developing for years and never quite getting anywhere, but last year J.J. Abrams and Jonah Nolan signed up to produce the movie for HBO, with the latter writing the script and directing the pilot. Well, it seems it's a step closer to happening as offers are now out for actors to fill the roles of the futuristic flick about robots run amok.
