Then, late night on an all-new episode of “Comic Book Men” titled “A Pez-Tacular Mystery,” the guys take a field trip to the Pez Museum to determine if Walt is actually the owner of an extremely rare and valuable piece of Pez history.
In its seventh season, AMC’s popular unscripted series “Comic Book Men,” takes another dive into the world of geekdom by following the antics in and around master fanboy Kevin Smith’s New Jersey comic shop, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. Leading the team behind the shop’s counter are Walt, Bryan, Michael and Ming, who geek out over mind-blowing pop culture artifacts and the legends behind them. Special guests this season include “Luke Cage” star Mike Colter, Rosario Dawson, Burt Ward, Method Man, and Freddy Kruger himself, Robert Englund. Whether it’s buying and selling memorabilia or embarking on wild adventures away from the store, The Stash cast shares all the juicy details with Kevin during their hilarious podcast, which is woven throughout the series.
Jared Harris as Francis Crozier
The two-hour season premiere of “The Terror” airs Monday, March 26th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT and includes back-to-back episodes: “Go for Broke” where an accident at sea cripples a Royal Navy expedition 200 miles from finding the Northwest Passage, forcing its captains to make a dire choice, and “Gore” in which scouting parties are sent out in search of open water after a long winter trapped in the ice, leading one of the teams to a frightening discovery.
“The Terror” is a suspenseful thriller that follows a British Royal Naval expedition as they set sail in search of the Northwest Passage. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope, fear of the unknown and attacks by a mysterious predator, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. The series is speculative fiction based on the lost voyage where more than 120 crew members inexplicably disappeared. Their fate is one of the enduring mysteries of the age of exploration. This epic series features distinctive imagery and landscapes, with a visual quality that is emblematic in scale and scope of a Ridley Scott production.
The ten-episode series stars Jared Harris (The Crown, Mad Men) as Captain Francis Crozier, Tobias Menzies (Outlander) as Captain James Fitzjames, Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Sir John Franklin, Paul Ready (Cuffs) as Dr. Harry Goodsir, Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey, Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence and Ian Hart (Neverland) as Thomas Blanky.
“The Terror” is executive produced by Ridley Scott, David Kajganich, Soo Hugh, David W. Zucker, Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert and Guymon Casady and is produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions and Entertainment 360 in association with AMC Studios.
