Well this was a blast from the past last month. Although Hook Jaw has something of a cult status in British comics, the strip itself has not been seen for many a year. Originally the star of Action weekly comic in the mid-1970′s, the level of violence was deemed to be too much for the time and Hook Jaw slipped away into folklore. Although Hook Jaw obviously came into being to take advantage of the Jaws craze, it managed to carve its own identity with the novel device that Hook Jaw only really attacked and ate ‘bad’ guys; that is, drug runners, people abusing the environment etc.
Obviously fun in its day, but I didn’t envy the job Si Spurrier had to bring that concept into the more cynical, more knowing now. Spurrier set this update »

“Westworld” and “Stranger Things” both broke into the drama series race. The two will contend for the prize at the Jan. 28 ceremony against HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the reigning Emmy winner for drama series and the PGA’s 2016 pick, AMC’s “Better Call Saul” and Netflix’s “House of Cards.”
“Atlanta” was the sole newbie in the comedy series heat. Donald Glover’s auteur comedy will face off against HBO’s “Silicon Valley” and “Veep” (which has scored back-to-back Emmy wins the past two years) and ABC’s “Black-ish” and “Modern Family.” Amazon’s “Transparent” took the comedy prize last year.

New Year. Every other ad slogan you see is screaming about the possibilities of a new you. A slimmer, happier, more accomplished you, one free of flab and toxins and bad habits. The fraudulent notion of the detox is everywhere, promising a simultaneously cleanse of both your soul and your colon.
There is however, one useful place to apply the insidious ‘detox’: TV viewing.
A combination of end-of-year exhaustion, festivities and time off work can lead to weakness of resolve when it comes to television. Turkey comas and lunchtime drinking make us susceptible to the sort of shows that we wouldn’t ordinarily watch. »
Ronning is in post-production on Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales,” which he co-directed with Espen Sandberg. Rønning will also write the script with his brother Andreas Rønning.
Paramount, which made a pre-emptive purchase of Ronning’s pitch, is keeping details of the plot under wraps. Bruckheimer, who has produced all five “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, will produce “Origin” through his Paramount-based Jerry Bruckheimer Films company.
Bruckheimer began his career at Paramount with Don Simpson during the 1980s with “Beverly Hills Cop,” “Top Gun” and “Flashdance” and then spent nearly two decades at Disney with “Armageddon,” “The Rock,” “Con Air,” “Crimson Tide,” “National Treasure” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise with Johnny Depp. After a costly flop with Depp’s “The Lone Ranger,” Bruckeimer returned to Paramount »

It is fitting, and rather illuminating, that the return of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” hinged on a scene where eight women are forced to quarrel with each other while two men stare at them impassively. Fitting, because it was deeply unsettling, which seems to be the defining emotion of our era. But it hit a little too close to home, having to watch a group of women split under the scrutiny and pressure of a bombastic, accented politician and his richly dressed scion. It was especially punishing to have to watch the women sell each other out twice: the new season of “Celebrity Apprentice” packages two hourlong episodes back-to-back, making for a mega-episode with two judging and elimination scenes. In an unwieldy episode that otherwise felt strained, the elimination scenes where the women faced the judges were unusually compelling, mostly because of how excruciating they were.
There was something allegorically dramatic about them, though »
