Revisiting Top Secret! - the 1980s' most underappreciated comedy

28 July 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We rewatched the classic 1980s comedy, Top Secret! It took surgeons two weeks to wipe the smile off our face...

"Is this the potato farm?"

"Yes, I am Albert Potato"

If you're laughing at the quote above, then it's fair to say that you're already a Top Secret! fan. But if you're wondering what that actually means, then chances are you've missed out on one of the very best comedies that the 1980s had to offer.

Now the classic comedy Airplane!, rightfully, has been the beneficiary of some hugely forensic work, just to try and keep on top of its many, many background jokes. In fact, one DVD edition had a special feature just to point out all the things you may have missed on your first, tenth or fiftieth time around. Turns out there were quite a few in my case.

Emmys exclusive: Which episodes are submitted by Jonathan Banks ('Better Call Saul') and Jim Carter ('Downton Abbey')?

22 July 2015 4:05 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Gold Derby has exclusively learned the episodes that will be submitted to the Emmys by two of the 2015 nominees for Best Drama Supporting Actor. Jonathan Banks is entering the "Better Call Saul" episode titled "Five-0." Jim Carter selects the "Downton Abbey" episode called "Episode 5.09." -Break- Click here to see the updated list of all 2015 Emmy episode submissions Banks is the first person to be nominated in this category for multiple roles. His previous two nods were for "Wiseguy" (1989) and "Breaking Bad" (2013). On that AMC drama, he played the same character of Mike Ehrmantraut that he now has on the prequel series.

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

21 July 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It may be early in the 2015 Emmys race, but this category is another in which a frontrunner is difficult to identify. Only two of last year's nominees returned (Peter Dinklage and Jim Carter) in a major shakeup (no John Slattery, Mandy Patinkin or Jon Voight?), meaning there is a lot of new blood in the game. But does that mean any of the previous nominees hold an edge?  Certainly Peter Dinklage has the fan support from "Game of Thrones," but he's already won the trophy and the franchise hasn't seen a lot of Emmys love since. Can Jim Carter pull off another surprise win for "Downton Abbey" after Joanne Froggatt's win at the Golden Globes? Or maybe Alan Cumming — who is back here for the first time since 2011 for "The Good Wife" — can manage an upset?

17 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The cast of Downton Abbey have kicked off filming for the final ever episode of the ITV drama that has taken the world by storm.

The sixth and final series of the period drama from Julian Fellowes will air in the autumn, so in the lead-up to our fond farewell to the Crawleys and the Granthams, here is a list of everything we know so far.

Downton Abbey: Why it had to end after its 6th series

When will the final episode air and be set?

There are no precise dates yet, but the final ever episode of Downton Abbey will be its Christmas special, so the likelihood is it will be broadcast on Christmas Day as with previous years.

The eight-part final series and its Christmas special will take place in 1925, the year of John Logie Baird's first TV with greyscale images and The Great Gatsby. The finale »

Emmy nominations 2015 - as it happened

Mad Men and Game of Thrones were the big nominees

British shows and actors did well with nods for Downton Abbey and DerekTransparent and Jeffrey Tambor were also recognised

3.47pm Et

We’re bowing out with a final piece that wraps up Hannah Ellis-Petersen’s piece about the UK success at the Emmy nominations, and Brian Moylan’s piece:

Once again, Downton Abbey received the most nominations of any British drama, continuing the series’ long-running awards success in the Us. The fourth series saw nominations for Jim Carter for best supporting actor and Joanne Froggatt for best supporting actress.

The ITV show, which has earned the most Emmy nominations of any non-us show in history, will again compete against glossy American dramas such as House of Cards, Game of Thrones and Mad Men for the accolade of outstanding drama series.

2015 Emmy Nominations: Snubs and Surprises

16 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Give the Emmys credit for at least trying to keep up with the current explosion of quality television.

This year, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences expanded the Best Comedy and Drama Series categories to seven slots each, and they made other minor changes (online voting!) meant to bring the awards into the 21st century. Still, there's more good TV now than even the Academy can keep up with, so the outrage and shock over the snubs and surprises in this morning's Emmy nominations is inevitable. Here are some of the most astonishing omissions and inclusions.

Best Drama Series

The biggest shocker here is the snub of "Empire," the season's breakout hit. Was it too soapy or guilty-pleasure-ish for the Academy to take seriously? Fellow newbie/Twitter sensation "How to Get Away With Murder" was also snubbed. Golden Globe fave "The Affair" got no love, here or in other major categories. »

The 2015 Emmy Award Nominations

16 July 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

This year's Emmy Award nominations have been announced and "Game of Thrones" topped the list with a whopping 24 nominations, followed by "American Horror Story: Freak Show" with 19 noms and "Olive Kitteridge" with 13.

HBO was by far the network to be with 124 nominations in total across the prime time and technical categories. They were followed by ABC (42), CBS & NBC (41), FX (38), Fox (35), Netflix (34), PBS (29), Comedy Central (25) and AMC (24).

With a new online voting system, the list of nominees are a bit fresher than usual with a lot of first-time nominees in acting categories, and some notable absentees like network comedy stalwarts "The Big Bang Theory" and Melissa McCarthy in favour of fresher faces such as "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". There was some excellent and overdue casting nominations such as Tatiana Maslany for "Orphan Black" and Taraji P. Henson for "Empire," along with the new 'Limited Series' element and more suitable classifications for some »

Chris Tucker Talks About Recent Visit To China To See Rush Hour Co-Star Jackie Chan

14 July 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I’m a huge Chris Tucker fan. Always have been.

From his scene-stealing performance in The Fifth Element, to Russell Simmons’ HBO Def Comedy Jam and 1995’s Friday opposite Ice Cube, starring in Money Talks with Charlie Sheen, through to his role in Silver Linings Playbook, Tucker is forever a pleasure to watch and is still one of the funniest comedians.

I was thrilled to read that the actor would be headlining his first full length stand-up comedy special titled “Chris Tucker Live” which had its premiere on Friday, July 10 on Netflix. It is one of the funniest stand-up shows to come along in years.

In the hilarious show, Chris Tucker returns to the stage he loves and showcases his mind-blowing comedic chops. From his pitch perfect impersonations of Michael Jackson and Bill Clinton, his take on first dates and marriage, visiting Oprah Winfrey’s house, to his singular on-stage physicality, »

Emmy Awards nominations cliffhanger: Who are we underestimating?

14 July 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Remember back in 2012 when "Downton Abbey" switched genres at the Emmys from Movie/Mini to Drama? Although many of us were expecting a decent haul of nominations for the second season of this Brit hit, we were shocked by those out-of-left-field supporting actor bids by Brendan Coyle and especially Jim Carter (who went on to be nominated two more times and could return again as a nominee this year). Who might be that shock contender this year? The rules of this game are (not so) simple: -Break- - They are from a new show (or one that is resurgent due to buzz or sentiment); - Their show is expected to be a big player at the Emmys, but not necessarily for all of the supporting cast; and - It will be someone that almost nobody saw coming. For example, my five "We Love the Show, So You Get a Nomination »

Emmys cliffhanger: Are we underestimating 'Downton Abbey' again?

30 June 2015 8:04 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Last year, we failed to predict just how well "Downton Abbey" would do when it came to racking up Emmy nominations in major categories. Yes, we did forecast that Maggie Smith would contend again for her scene-stealing role as the Dowager. After all, that part had won her prizes for the first and second seasons of the show.  However, we had this Brit hit pegged at just eighth place in the Drama Series race but it reaped a third consecutive bid in that top category. And we missed that repeat nomination for leading lady Michelle Dockery, having ranked her down in the 10th spot. Likewise, we did not predict that two of the featured players in the ensemble cast -- Joanne Froggatt and Jim Carter -- would contend again, slotting them in seventh and eight place respectively. It was the third straight nod for Carter and marked the return of Froggatt, »

Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Red Dwarf: 10 fantasy TV Lego sets we want

3 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Clever fans have inspired Lego to make many awesome sets of toy blocks based on their home-made creations, from Back to the Future to Ghostbusters.

Now with official playsets for The Big Bang Theory and Doctor Who expected later this year, we thought it was time we made something like last year's movies compilation and put together a wish list of our dream TV-themed box of bricks.

Come on, Lego, these are all but a licensing contract away.

1. Top Gear

This 540-piece set is slowly gaining support on the Lego Ideas website, and has so far reached over 2,000 of its required 10,000 votes for Lego to take it seriously. Clarkson may be on his way out, but the set still includes him and fellow members James May, Richard Hammond and The Stig, as well as two camera crew members, a Broken Toyota Hilux and a Power Lap board with lap times. »

First images from CBS’ Rush Hour TV reboot

14 May 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in October 2014 it was revealed that Bill Lawrence (Cougar Town, Scrubs) was developing a TV reboot of the popular Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker buddy-cop comedy Rush Hour. It was then announced in January that CBS had picked up pilot and now we’ve finally got our first look at the new double act in action.

Jon Foo (Tekken) will replace Jackie Chan as Detective Lee and Justin Hires (21 jump Street) will take over from Chris Tucker as loudmouth Detective James Carter.

Check out the images and official synopsis below:

Rush Hour, a reimagining of the hit feature film franchise, is a buddy-cop drama about a maverick Lapd detective and a by-the-book detective from Hong Kong who knock heads when they are forced to partner together.

Jim Carter: It's 'right time' for Downton Abbey to end

1 May 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Jim Carter believes it is ''the right time'' for 'Downton Abbey' to end. The 66-year-old star, who has played the butler Mr. Carson in the ITV period drama since it started in 2010, has confessed he thinks the producers are right for deciding to bring it to an end after the upcoming sixth series and 2015 Christmas special. He said: ''It's probably the right time - everything has to come to an end, but we shall miss it enormously. ''I shall miss the fact that it's dictated my life for the last six years, but then there's always the challenge of doing something »
