20 July 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The digital debrief is part of the fun of TV – but how do you stay spoiler-free when everyone is watching at different times?

How can I avoid Game of Thrones spoilers online? Please Help It’S Really Important.

Bad news: short of building a bunker below ground, beyond the reach of the internet, and shacking up there with some Fray Bentos until September, you can’t – not with total certainty. And if that is your plan, well, your grand design is behind schedule. Season seven of Game of Thrones premiered last Sunday, kicking off six weeks of breathless online commentary and the brittle policing of it.

Rumor: An McU Fan-Favorite Character Returning In Captain Marvel

4 July 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Happy 4th of July everyone! In the spirit of the holiday, we've learned some news that should make us all proud to be Americans: Sam Jackson is rumored to be back, returning as Nick Fury in the highly-anticipated Captain Marvel film, starring Brie Larson. Bad news is, we have to wait until 2019 for this movie to premiere.

While there have been rumors of Jackson's presence on the set of Avengers: Infinity War, all indications are that this is just a minor cameo role. However, given the nature of the Infinity Stones (time, space, mind, reality, power), Fury's appearance could be a flashback, a false future, or just an illusion (or all three). Marvel has been coy about Fury's existence in this movie.

Sense8 to My Mother the Car: the TV you think was most correctly killed off

30 June 2017 6:11 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The offensive, the misguided – and the mum reincarnated as an ancient automobile. Here are the programmes our readers feel were rightfully axed

• Heroes to Heil Honey I’m Home – are these the smartest TV cancellations ever?

Some television shows are cruelly ended before their time. Others – Star Trek: Enterprise, I’m looking at you – are quite rightly offed before they have the chance to do any further damage.

Our writers nominated Heroes, Twin Peaks and the bizarre Heil Honey I’m Home! in the latter category. Below, we list our readers’ own suggestions, from a truly sinister 1960s comedy to a terrible 1980s soap opera.

I hear they've cancelled Sense8 - I'd add that to the list. Great opening season but the actual plot got waylaid in favor of tedious romantic entagelements. Said gongs on might have been politically brave, empowering etc etc but I just pined for some action, »

Justice League Co-Director Joss Whedon Is Skipping Comic-Con

27 June 2017 4:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bad news, everyone. Well, at least for everyone who is going to be attending San Diego Comic-Con. Joss Whedon, one of the most important figures in the world of fandom, won't be attending the event this year. Granted, it is for good reason, since he is currently busy handling the reshoots on Justice League, but it still serves as a bummer for those in attendance that Warner Bros. wasn't able to arrange for him to make an appearance at the convention.

The news comes courtesy of An Englishman in San Diego, who got confirmation from Joss Whedon directly that he won't be making it to Sdcc 2017. Their contributor Mark Searby ran into Joss Whedon on the street in the U.K. and, when asked about whether or not he will be in attendance at Comic-Con this year, Whedon broke the bad news. Here's what he had to say about it. »

‘Playing House’ Review: Season 3 Still Be Bangin’ Because of the Aspirational Friendship That Conquered Real-Life Cancer

23 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While doing press in January for the third season of “Playing House,” co-creators, writers, stars and real-life best friends Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham hinted that they shared a major bonding experience that they had written into the show. But they decided to keep mum about it until early May, when St. Clair revealed in a post on the StandUp2Cancer website that she had underwent treatment for breast cancer, with her best friend by her side every step of the way.

The duo had worried that introducing such a serious storyline into the show wouldn’t feel organic or that it would overpower the comedy, but that fear was unfounded. “Playing House” is funnier, more in tune with its beating heart of comedy than ever, because of how the battle with cancer brought the two friends closer together.

Making the series after that was an exercise in gratitude, and the show exudes positivity, hope and joy through every line and scene. If anything, “Playing House” balances out its humor and multiple storylines so well that it’s actually easy to forget that the cancer plot is coming until it happens. And then bam — right there amidst the laughter — a feeling of being blindsided and stunned. And then come the tears.

This is what sets “Playing House” and a few other powerful comedies apart from the pack — their ability to bring genuine pathos and character growth into a genre that usually favors cautious inertia. The series is fearless: It’s unafraid to change, to evolve, to grow up.

When the show began, Maggie (Parham) left her cheating husband just before she’s about to have their baby. Her best friend Emma (St. Clair) leaves behind her job overseas to move in with Maggie to help raise the baby together. But this season, it’s Maggie who’s supportive of Emma through the hard times. In between single motherhood and cancer, the friends are consistently there for each other through all the changes: reentering the world of dating (with a hot new British doctor played by Ben Willbond), turning 40, having a healthy relationship with exes, career changes, and raising children. Aging isn’t a cause for mourning or denial, but is celebrated and yes, mocked mercilessly.

Early on in Season 3, when Emma is considering sleeping with an ex she knew in high school, the following exchange takes place:

Real talk: do penises age? Asking for a friend.

Check out this first look at Season 3! We're dying a little with excitement. pic.twitter.com/TfxtuxfNo9

Playing House (@PlayingHouseUSA) June 22, 2017

What’s beautiful about their relationship is that Maggie doesn’t even hesitate to answer in the most earnest and detailed manner possible. Oh yes, “Playing House” is crass, inappropriate, silly, but most of all vital. This season might be about embracing all the ups and downs of age 40, but it doesn’t act its age. Emma and Maggie’s lust for life and sharing is infectious, so much so that a new character introduced in the first episode gets visibly verklempt after hearing about the extent of the women’s friendship. Nobody is immune to the power of their triumphant and gleeful bond.

As strong as their friendship is though, it is not exclusive. Characters on the show get swept up in their wake, only to be embraced as extended family. And while some of the scenes featuring these characters without the benefit of the Bff presence or chemistry falter a bit, that too is part of the growing and learning process. This season we see more of exes Mark (Keegan-Michael Key), Bruce (Brad Morris), Zach (Zach Woods) and even Tina, aka “Bird Bones” (Lindsay Sloane), among a slew of others who are game to ditch their dignity for laughs. And in a way, we the audience are invited into that circle of friends as well.

St. Clair and Parham deciding to incorporate their partnered cancer battle into the show isn’t just brave or smart; it’s generous. And that’s true of how the show has operated from the beginning. Sure, their friendship is a pleasure to watch and even aspirational in its strength, but sharing it in all of its imperfect glory — warts, tumors and all — is the ultimate in honest communication, trust and building a community. We’ve been invited into the house to play, and it’s exactly where we want to be.

Grade: B+

Playing House” premieres with back-to-back episodes on Friday, June 23 at 11 p.m. and the entire season will be available on VOD on Saturday, June 24.

Orphan Black Final Season Premiere Recap: Beware the Woods

Clone Club, what did we learn from Orphan Black‘s Season 5 premiere? According to Sarah and Alison, it would have to be not to go into the woods, because bad things — very, very bad things — happen among the trees.

Let’s break down the action-packed episode, clone by clone:

Sarah | An injured Sarah makes her way across the island, hoping to find Cosima and a boat to get them far, far away from whatever attacked her in the woods. (My guess? It’s the product of an early Neolution experiment gone wrong.) The monster in the forest is so disturbing, »
