’30 Rock’: The 25 Episodes You Need to Watch Before Tina Fey’s Iconic Comedy Leaves Netflix

6 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Picking favorites when it comes to “30 Rock” is an awful proposition because the whole series, barring a handful of exceptions, remains an extremely watchable and fascinating comedic journey. But with the show leaving Netflix at the beginning of October (and thus becoming completely unstreamable), we find ourselves in the unfortunate position of having to choose favorites.

Twenty-five episodes equates to less than 10 hours, so you should be able to make the time before September 30. And the adventures of Liz Lemon, Tracy Jordan, Jenna Maroney, Jack Donaghy, and beyond are worth it.

“Tracy Does Conan

Season 1, Episode 7

The first season of “30 Rock” was a bit rocky, but “Tracy Does Conan” does a few important things: It introduces Dr. Leo Spaceman (Chris Parnell), casts Conan O’Brien as himself, and features Aubrey Plaza as an NBC page (a job she actually held in real life). More importantly, it features a breathless sense of anarchy, »

‘Neo Yokio’ Review: This Futuristic Netflix Story is The Greatest Robot Butler Anime of 2017

6 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In the broad scope of anime history, it would be inaccurate (and maybe even a little unfair) to call “Neo Yokio” an unprecedented series. But you’d be hard-pressed to find a batch of six TV episodes with quite the same subject matter overlap as the latest Netflix animated effort. Starring the voice talents of Jaden Smith and executive produced by Ezra Koenig, “Neo Yokio” is a hyperspecific blend of neo-futurist metropolises, prep school drama, and high-society intrigue, all with a dash of field hockey and weekend jaunts to the Hamptons. The result is a bespoke anime that’s confounding at times, but always in search of new layers to its insulated universe.

Wisely, “Neo Yokio” doesn’t spend more than a narrated intro explaining the origins of its title city, an alternate futurist New York of sorts. Instead it revels in a slew of off-kilter details in the life »

‘Midnight Texas’ Finale: Boss Talks Switching Up That Sexy Ending and Cueing the Danger Up for Season 2

19 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “The Virgin Sacrifice,” the season finale of “Midnight, Texas.”]

In a surprisingly romantic season finale, “Midnight, Texas” took a significant departure from the books it’s based on by moving one love scene back behind closed doors. On the show, a demon wants to mate with Fiji (Parisa Fitz-Henley) because she’s a powerful virgin witch. Her plan is to go through with it but kill the demon in the act, since she’s accidentally killed someone once before when she was in the throes of passion. Her love interest Bobo (Dylan Bruce) has other ideas though, and realizes that if he sleeps with her, she will no longer be a virgin. Therefore, the budding couple move to the next level of intimacy while a war between good and evil is waged outside.

In the novels by Charlaine Harris that inspired the series, Fiji’s plan plays out more dramatically and in a far ickier way. She makes the »

‘Netflix Is a Joke’: Those Mysterious Billboards Are Finally Revealed in Cheeky New Ad — Watch

18 September 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The mystery behind an ad campaign that gave many Angelenos pause on their daily commutes has been solved. Billboards bearing the slogan ‘Netflix Is a Joke’ in plain black and white  delighted some and confused others, it turns out it was all part of a PR stunt to promote the streaming sit’e new comedy specials. In a new trailer, which premiered at the Emmys last night, America’s favorite stand-ups popped up in iconic scenes from Netflix original dramas. Jerry Seinfeld sits down in the Oval Office for a chat with Frank Underwood, Ellen Degeneres has some harsh truths for John Lithgow’s Winston Churchill, and Chris Rock incites a walk out at Litchfield penitentiary by riling up the ladies of “Orange is the New Black.” There’s even a brief Dave Chappelle sighting, in case you haven’t had enough of him yet.

How I Met Your Mother and 30 Rock Are Leaving Netflix Because 2017 Is Total Trash

15 September 2017 8:50 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Because 2017 is intent on further stripping us of our sanity, it was recently announced that both How I Met Your Mother and 30 Rock are leaving Netflix. First Buffy and now these two? C'mon. Why you gotta be like this, Netflix? First on the chopping block is 30 Rock, a comedy produced by Universal Television, which will exit the streaming network by the end of September. If you've been putting off getting to know Tina Fey's Liz Lemon, now is the time to get your binge on. Fortunately, you likely have a little bit more time to watch How I Met Your Mother's nine seasons. According to Vulture, the 20th Century Fox TV–produced show will also be leaving Netflix this Fall, but the exact date is still Tbd (Netflix is remaining mum on the subject as of publication). The move for both comedies is probably due to the deal »

Mandy Moore Is Named Garnier's Latest Celeb Ambassador

13 September 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Don't call it a comeback! The truth is Mandy Moore never left our "Candy"-loving hearts since the day she departed from Shane West in A Walk to Remember. Garnier must feel the same, since the beauty brand just added the This Is Us star to its roster of celeb ambassadors. The 33-year-old actress, who first broke onto the scene as a pop star then with her roles in Saved! and The Princess Diaries, will join the likes of Tina Fey and Sarah Jessica Parker in promoting "nourished hair, better color."

The First Trailer For the Mean Girls Broadway Musical Is Pretty Fetch

13 September 2017 11:10 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Mean Girls fans, rejoice, because it looks like the fervor surrounding Tina Fey's seminal 2004 comedy will never die.

6 September 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

CBS has its eye on a classic noir story: The network is developing a drama series based on James Ellroy’s novel L.A. Confidential, our sister site Deadline reports.

The project — written by Jordan Harper (Gotham, The Mentalist) — follows three homicide detectives, a female reporter and a Hollywood actress. The characters’ paths intersect when the detectives pursue a sadistic serial killer through the seedy underbelly of glamorous 1950s Los Angeles.

Critics Pick the Returning TV Shows They Can’t Wait to See — IndieWire Survey

6 September 2017 10:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is your most anticipated returning show of the fall season? Why?

Liz Shannon Miller (@lizlet), IndieWire

There’s a lot I’m very excited about returning: “BoJack Horseman” Season 4, as just one example, is truly extraordinary. But I’m fascinated by the thought of what “Mr. Robot” Season 3 is going to be like, given the crazy political environment it was created during. The latest trailer teased a lot of exciting developments about the new world order descending upon the hacker drama; plus, it’s a show that always has at least one big secret up its sleeve. Of everything coming out this fall, it seems like the most unknown quantity, »

Emmy Predictions: The Line on Whether Any of These Underdogs Can Actually Win

6 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With more shows competing than ever and a limited number of nomination slots, it’s no wonder more than a dozen great TV shows only snagged one Emmy nomination in 2017. From “The Leftovers” to “Adventure Time,” these series are only up for one award, but some of them could still win. Below, IndieWire has made predictions for a handful of the best one-nomination wonders, so — just like those that take home armfuls of Emmys — these, too, can rightfully be called “Emmy winners.”

Adventure Time

Nomination: Outstanding Short-Form Animated Program

Can It Win? Yes!

Why? A perennial nominee in the category — and six-time winner overall — “Adventure Time” won in this category back in 2015. It lost in 2016 to “Robot Chicken,” but the Cartoon Network series isn’t nominated this year.

In an Ideal World: Other than “Steven Universe,” which is also only nominated in one category, “Adventure Time” is the runaway fan favorite in the category. »
