  • "The Killing" Final Season finally headed to Netflix

    The final season — the real final season this time — of The Killing has a release date.

    Netflix will unleash the last season of the murky, rainy crime drama on Aug. 1. The final fourth-season batch is only six episodes, so this is one binge you can easily polish off in a single night.

    As we’ve previously noted, The Killing, which stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman as Seattle detectives, was AMC’s true zombie show — a series that was canceled twice and then revived twice. More details about its improbably resurrection. »

  • Glee Will Time Jump—and Won't Be in New York—for Final Season

    Let the Glee mystery begin! Creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy has dropped quite the unexpected little bomb about the Fox hit's sixth and final season: It won't be New York-centric. It will jump forward in time. And it will directly involve only a handful of core characters—although Murphy insists that for the final year, "anybody who wants to come back can come back."  "Everything sort of builds to a head [in the current season's finale]," Murphy explained to a small group of reporters Monday. "I would say explosion is too harsh of a word, but something big happens and then the final season is the aftermath of that." Tonight's episode, »

  • Paul Walker’s Brothers to Help Fill in ‘Small Gaps’ in ‘Fast & Furious 7? Production

    In the wake of Paul Walker’s unexpected death in November, his brothers Cody and Caleb will step in for him and help finish some remaining shots for Universal’s “Fast & Furious 7.”

    According to a statement made on the film’s Facebook page on Tuesday, the two Walker brothers will help with some “remaining action” and other shots that were not completed before Paul Walker’s death. The statement reads that he had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of the action, which they called “among the strongest work of his career.”

    “Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too,” the statement on the film’s Facebook page reads.

    “We are just under a year away from the release of ‘Fast & Furious 7,’ and this film is the most important we’ve ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O »

  • Mad Men Season 7 Premiere and predictions

    So Don Draper is back on Tv screens across America as of last night back to his ever self conflicted clash of emotions. Last nights episode of Mad Men was a farewell to the sixties and a waltz into the the seventies. As usual the colorful cast of Mad Men navigated its way through an episode full of drama and change. Don has gone from "The Man" to just plain old man, while Peggy who thought she'd rise like the phoenix without Don has come crashing down to the earth. I won't spoil too much for those who may have missed the shows premiere but let's say it's setting up the template for huge shocks and major changes.

    My prediction for this season and the end of this show are as follows:

    Roger: I think the playboy Roger's run will come to an end. He will realize the void he's tried to fill via drink and drugs is still vacant after much self exploration. Roger will try to become a father to his Son and a better father to his daughter. I think we see Roger finally hang up his bachelor hat and accept the fact he is no longer a young man.

    Peggy: I think Peggy leaves the advertising world entirely. She's been taking the punches as they come but it will all come to a head. She will end up taking her talents into another field that will allow her to find time to actually have a normal life and a relationship. I think we see Peggy get married prior to the finale of this show.

    Don: I don't think Don will fight to save this latest marriage, as i've never believed he and his toothy younger wife have ever been very compatible. I wouldn't be surprised to see Don back in Advertising but within another company, perhaps his own. There is a very good chance that Don and Betty find their way back to each other before the end of this season. An alternate theory for me is that Don finds a new woman one just as damaged as he and together they find peace within the other. I think Don's alcohol problems finally take their toll this season and we may see Don changing many aspects of his life including his lack of interest in his children's lives.

    Betty: I see Betty getting divorced this season, either via discovery of her current political husband having an affair or simply by growing tired of being a trophy wife. Perhaps Betty finally goes through a full break down in order to build herself anew. I do think before the series ends we will finally see Betty seeing the light and not liking how it's reflect who she has played this entire show. Possibly ends up back in the world of Don.

  • Hunger Games stomps competition at MTV Movie Awards

    For a night, at least, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug” and “This is the End” got to be awards show darlings. Commercial hits, particularly those geared at audiences too young to legally drive or drink, were the big winners at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. Let “12 Years a Slave” savor its Best Picture Oscar and “American Hustle” monopolize those critics best lists, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” was the big winner at this year's honors. The blockbuster sequel nabbed three major awards, scoring Golden Popcorns for Best Movie as well as Best Female and Male Performances. »

  • Rosemary's Baby tv series news

    NBC has set a premiere date for the miniseries update of "Rosemary's Baby," marking a tight turnaround for the Ira Levin adaptation.  Production on "Rosemary's Baby" only began in January and only five months later, the four-hour telefilm will premiere on Sunday, May 11 and Thursday, May 15 airing from 9-11 p.m. on both nights.  Scott Abbott and James Wong wrote the script, which was directed by Oscar and Emmy nominee Agnieszka Holland. The new take on the 1967 suspense novel transplants the action to Paris, where a young married couple (Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams) move into an apartment with a haunted past. When Rosemary gets pregnant, she begins to distrust the intentions of both her seemingly kindly neighbors and her seemingly devoted husband.  In addition to Saldana and Adams, "Rosemary's Baby" stars Jason Isaacs and Carole Bouquet. The May premiere date will make "Rosemary's Baby" eligible for Emmy consideration this year, »

  • Lena Dunham said to be "Quitting Acting", millions rejoice

    Don't get us wrong we like Lena Dunham just not Lena Dunham the actress. Lena recently revealed in a vogue interview that she enjoys days where she doesn't act and thus may be taking more roles behind the scenes and frankly it may in the end benefit her shows. Dunham who brought us the smash hit "Girls" has sadly evolved the shows discussion around her on screen appearances and while she may be the lead actress the show has lost a bit of it's appeal because of it. Lena is a phenomenal talent but her acting annoys many, me included. Some have made much about her love of nudity but that's an irrelevant factor, she chews up scenes with major overacting. It really has started to come off as forced as well, perhaps the is some truth to her not enjoying the part of actress. Focusing on her writing is the best path for Ms. Dunham as she has recently revealed she has a few projects in the works perhaps being master of one domain instead of the dual role she currently plays will bring new life to her ever growing stale project.

  • Louie returns for Season 5 on May 5th

    After a 19-month hiatus, FX’s Emmy-winning show “Louie” will return on May 5 for a fourth season.

    The net will air two new back-to-back episodes every Monday for seven weeks. FX originally ordered 13 eps for the show’s grand return, but creator-star-writer-director-exec producer Louis C.K. surprised with a bonus 14th episode.

    FX Network’s CEO John Landgraf said the show’s lengthy break has only improved its quality.

    “Louis said he needed extra time between seasons three and four of his show because – even though Louie was the most critically acclaimed television comedy series in America – he needed to make it even better,” Landgraf said in a statement. “Based on the first three episodes we’ve seen, remarkably, he accomplished his goal.”

  • 'True Detective' Recap: Face Facts

    Last Sunday night, I gave True Detective a bad review. In return, it gave me nightmares.

    That night, my brain conjured up not one but two separate imaginary season finales in dream form. In one, Rust Cohle and Marty Hart tracked the killer conspiracy to an oily Louisiana politician (played, in the dream, by Deadwood veteran Zach Grenier, proving that my brain and True Detective's casting director have a similar attitude about raiding past great HBO dramas for talent). Content they'd gotten their man at last, they didn't notice the hulking, »

    Rose McGowan is not happy with the star-studded audience at this year's Academy Awards. The actress took to Twitter and Instagram to vent her frustrations after Kim Novak didn't receive a standing ovation after she presented alongside Matthew McConaughey at the awards show. "Kim Novak! No standing ovation?! Self-obsessed and disrespectful, that sums up the Oscar audience," she wrote. She then posted several pictures on Instagram showing the Hollywood icon and added a few well, colorful, captions to really drive the point home.

  • TV Review: ‘Growing Up Fisher’

    Tweaked from the pilot NBC bought, "Growing up Fisher" bears all the hallmarks of a show the network has sought to “fix” on the fly, with the attendant baggage that entails. Anchored by the ever-reliable J.K. Simmons as a blind dad as seen through the eyes of his young son, it’s a show that labors to locate heart and laughs, despite the “Dad won’t let his impairment stop him” underpinnings. Although there’s an opening note saying the series is inspired by a true story — specifically, the life of series creator DJ Nash — there’s not much creative inspiration to be found.

    Originally titled “The Family Guide,” beyond its premise the show resembles ABC’s frosh comedy “The Goldbergs” by having an adult narration (by exec producer Jason Bateman) that here feels slightly off given the contemporary setting. The show’s ostensible focus is Henry (Eli Baker), the »

  • "The after" a very promising Amazon original pilot

    People love apocalyptic and Sci-fi, that can easily be noted on the message boards for many cancelled shows that simply lost steam on major networks. Amazon seems to have realized this by investing in "The after' a quasi sci-fi dark drama which just made it's debut this past week via Amazon's very popular Prime Video. The premise for "The After" is a mysterious group of people who are complete strangers being stuck in the middle of unexplainable events. Good start, lots of room to go with it. The one thing I came to admire about this first episode was that they gave you just enough information to wet your appetite but not enough to lose you. I was a fan of shows like Jericho and the event but they gave away information either in drips or in large waves, it was never satisfactory or it was too much. Shows of this nature require enough answers while posing new ones, it's a challenge to the viewer. A show of this nature should always leave you thinking just enough to keep you coming back for more. A perfect example of this was the mega hit "Lost". One answer always led to another question and another one but they tied in and were spaced properly. Hopefully Amazon's creative freedom will allow it's writers to go with something other than sitcom formula. The cast is full of people who you may recognize from this or that but nobody who truly stands out so much you can't remove them from whatever role they've played before. That's one of the main reasons why this show has potential to really kick some serious butt and win Amazon a trove of Sci-Fi fanatics. The story can go anywhere and actors like Aldis Hodge and Adrien Pasdar will pepper up the show and stand out amongst their lesser known fellow actors. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, make sure you do.
