Candy

Adapted from Terry Southern's novel (itself an adaptation of Voltaire's Candide), the 1968 psychedellic romp features an alluring but naive young woman from outer space (Ewa Aulin) whose wanderings lead her into sexually-charged situations.

Featuring a who's who of appearances from Marlon Brando to Ringo Starr, Candy's journey will lead her to come into contact with a wide variety of odd characters before deciding to return back where she came from. The script is rather one-note, as is the performance of its leading lady and most of her co-stars, and the cult film is more of a curiosity than anything else after all these years.

Han Solo #1


In his new solo series (heh), everyone's favorite scruffy-looking nerfhereder is badgered into an undercover assignment for the Rebellion. With a leak inside the Rebellion leading the Empire to a network of their spies, and needing a pilot and ship for a dangerous mission, Leia convinces both the reluctant Han and the reluctant Rebel leaders that Han Solo is their man.

Person of Interest - Return 0


After five seasons and more than 100 episodes Person of Interest comes to a close with "Return 0." With both The Machine and Samaritan slowly dying, our ragtag group of heroes have one last mission: destroy the back-up copy of Samaritan to prevent it from ever returning. For Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) this means breaking into the Federal Reserve and infecting Samaritan's air-gaped servers with the ICE-9 virus. For Shaw (Sarah Shahi) and Fusco (Kevin Chapman) this means one final shoot-out in the subway. And for The Machine it means chasing Samaritan into space and finding a way to defeat the rival's final copy aboard a satellite once and for all.
