Scandal, Community, Utopia: Tube Talk Q&A

3 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Get the feeling that television's kinda on auto-pilot right now? With the World Cup and Wimbledon dominating, the schedulers are just plain cruising - but with all those lovely Autumn launches on the horizon, UK telly is about to go off!

As ever, the Tube Talk Q&A has all the latest on what to watch and where to watch it. We're good to you like that.

What's going on with Community? I heard talks of Hulu picking it up but since then I haven't seen any updates!

Icymi - talks between Sony TV and Hulu to revive Community fell apart late last month - truly, this was the darkest timeline...

But following a fan-baiting tweet from the show's mischievous creator Dan Harmon, it was announced earlier this week that the dream of #sixseasonsandamovie ain't dead after all.

Here's the skinny - On-demand streaming service Yahoo! Screen will release 13 new episodes, »

Gor blimey! Us stars attempt the English accent - Best and worst

3 July 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Beginning tonight at 9pm, Maggie Gyllenhaal stars in BBC Two's new eight-part thriller The Honourable Woman.

In the drama from The Shadow Line writer Hugo Blick, New York-born Maggie boasts an impressive English accent in her role as Nessa Stein.

This got us to thinking - which other Us stars have attempted to mimic the Brit twang... and how did they fare?

Gillian Anderson - The Fall

Bit of a cheat, this one. If you've ever wondered how Chicago-born X-Files star Anderson manages to pull off that flawless English intonation in the BBC's The Fall and Great Expectations, it's more than just her considerable acting talent - Gillian spent her childhood in the United Kingdom and continues to divide her time between England and the States.

You, Me & Them: Eve Myles, Anthony Head sitcom gets series 2 on Gold

UKTV has recommissioned Gold's first ever scripted sitcom You, Me & Them.

Dominion Review – Syfy Offers Up Wacky/Serious TV Option

30 June 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Dominion Review

Syfy has a tricky base of fans, and Dominion may just be the kind of crazy that works for a lot of them. The network’s identity can seem a bit polarizing, with Haven, Helix, and Being Human fans perhaps not wanting to identify themselves as also Sharknado fans. That leaves an area open which some consider to be something like “mid-range Syfy.” Different shows fall in different places on the hokey spectrum depending on who you ask, but Dominion, based on the 2010 film Legion, is clearly trying to see just how far you can push things.

Much like the film that came before (and indeed, Sharknado), Dominion sidesteps certain requirements of cohesion, believability, and logical construction and/or characters, by having a basic premise so bonkers that it is ultimately critique immune. It’s a story about angels attacking humans because God “disappeared.” If you want characters »

Anthony Stewart Head Still Wants to Do a Buffy Spinoff About Giles—Can This Please Happen?

24 June 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If Anthony Stewart Head has his way, you haven't seen the last of Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Rupert Giles. Head, who played Buffy Summers' (Sarah Michelle Gellar) Watcher and mentor on the beloved Buffy the Vampire Slayer, had been at the center of a Ripper spinoff of sorts for years now that would follow Giles being, well, pretty flippin' badass. But sadly, nothing ever came together. Yet Head hasn't given up hope of reuniting with Joss Whedon for the project. "You know what? I would do it. I would do anything to work with Joss again. He's a wonderful storyteller, a great director, and a lovely man," Head told Vulture when asked about a Giles spinoff still coming together. "I would »

Ripper: Anthony Head "still game" for Buffy spinoff

24 June 2014 3:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Anthony Head has insisted that he is "still game" for a Buffy spinoff featuring his character Giles.

Joss Whedon's Ripper - a Giles-centric drama - was first mooted in 2001 and was in development at the BBC.

"I would do it," Head told Vulture. "I would do anything to work with Joss again. He's a wonderful storyteller, a great director, and a lovely man. I would love to, you know? Whether it's Ripper or something else."

The 60-year-old explained that Ripper was pitched to him by Whedon as a "standalone" TV movie.

"It's more about what happens to Giles when he's cut adrift from Buffy and the rest of them," he said. "It's a beautiful, beautiful ghost story, and it's extremely haunting, as you would expect of Joss.

"It's unlike anything that I've ever read before. And if Joss is still game, then I am!"

Dominion: Season One Ratings

24 June 2014 1:04 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

On this new Syfy show, humans have had to fight to survive following a horrific war. Similarly, TV shows have to struggle to attract positive ratings so they can survive. Will Dominion be renewed for a second season or become a cancelled casualty instead? Stay tuned.

Based on the characters from the Legion movie, Dominion takes place 25 years into the future, after the "Extinction War" in which an army of lower angels waged a war against mankind. The show's cast includes Christopher Egan, Tom Wisdom, Carl Beukes, Alan Dale, Roxanne McKee, Anthony Head, Luke Allen-Gale, Shivani Ghai, and Rosalind Halstead.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available. »

Anthony Stewart Head on Dominion, the Giles Spinoff Film, and Being a Joss Whedon Yes-Man

23 June 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“Angels are the new vampires — I’ve been saying that for quite a while,” Anthony Stewart Head tells us. He would know. After playing beloved mentor Giles on Buffy the Vampire Slayer for many years, he’s become an expert on all sorts of demonology and supernatural forces, making him a natural fit for the new Syfy series Dominion, which made its debut last Thursday. The show continues the angels-taking-back-the-world-from-humans story that was set forth in the 2010 movie Legion; the action picks up 25 years later, after most of humanity has been destroyed, save for city-states of survivors "cobbled together" by a group of leaders. It is in Vega, a city-state formerly known as Las Vegas, that we meet Head's character, the charming but Machiavellian Senator David Whele. Whether Whele is a villain or not, he's a fascinating character, made more fascinating by the involvement of Head. Vulture used the opportunity »

5 Joss Whedon projects you never got to see: Wonder Woman, Ripper, Batman

23 June 2014 2:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Now that Joss Whedon is something of an unofficial "showrunner" for the Marvel cinematic universe, reportedly wielding some degree of influence over all the studio's scripts following the game-changing success of The Avengers, it's hard to remember that there was a time he literally couldn't get a movie off the ground.

But Whedon's had a number of projects that haven't panned out over the years, and while there's nothing uncommon about that in itself, his devoted fan base has meant that his mooted ventures are more widely publicised than most.

To mark Whedon's 50th birthday today (June 23), Digital Spy lists five of his most promising projects that never saw the light of day.

1. Wonder Woman

Still the best known of Whedon's close-but-no-cigar projects is his long, long, long brewing Wonder Woman adaptation, which was officially announced by Warner Bros in 2005. Whedon was set to write and direct, but only got »

Top 15 Joss Whedon characters: The best of the Buffy, Angel, Firefly bunch

21 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joss Whedon, lauded king of fandom, purveyor of wisdom and de facto overseer of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, celebrates his 50th birthday on Monday (June 23).

Whedon's always had a knack for taking pre-established characters – whether it's The Avengers or a gang of talking toys or the cast of Speed – and making them just that bit more quippy and emotionally rich and awesome. But it's his original small-screen characters that remain his most beloved.

Below, Digital Spy counts down our top fifteen Whedonverse characters. You can vote for your favourite in the poll below, then take to the comments to rank about all the rankings we got wrong and all the favourites we've inevitably left out.

15. Dr Horrible

Neil Patrick Harris's "aspiring supervillain" is never at any point successfully villainous. He's a more immediately loveable extension of Buffy's Nerd Troika – the perpetually overlooked semi-recluse who can barely string a sentence together around his crush, »

Dominion Series Premiere Review: “Pilot” (Season 1, Episode 1)

19 June 2014 7:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After watching the pilot episode of Syfy’s newest original series, Dominion, I’m still not quite sure how it ever got off the ground. Now, I don’t mean to slam the show by saying that – but it’s not often that a small-scale flick like Legion, which proved a modest success at the box office back in 2010 but wasn’t really anything special in terms of plot, premise or acting, gets a follow-up, let alone in the form of an entire TV series. Was there any reason to so extensively revisit the world of Legion, in which an army of angels led by archangel Gabriel fight a war of possession against humankind? Honestly, probably not – but Dominion entertains regardless.

The show opens 25 years after the conclusion of Legion, in which the archangel Michael succeeded in protecting a newborn child, prophesied to be the Chosen One, from Gabriel’s army. »

Celebrate World Cup Spirit with the 'Underdogs' International Trailer

19 June 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the World Cup in full swing, a new international trailer has debuted for the animated comedy Underdogs (entitled The Unbeatables internationally), which tells a unique soccer-themed story on a much different scale. Rupert Grint voices Amadeo, a young man who shows his love of soccer by becoming an unbeatable foosball player, instead of playing the sport for real. When he is challenged to a real soccer match by the villainous Grosso (Diego Ramos), Amadeo gets some unexpected allies when the tiny foosball players on his table magically come to life. Peter Serafinowicz, Anthony Head and Rob Brydon round out the voice cast in director Juan Jos&#233 Campanella's animated comedy, which arrives in theaters January 16, 2015 from The Weinstein Company.

Amadeo loves football, so much he becomes an unbeatable player on the arcade-version of the game installed in the small caf&#233 laying in the small town he lives. Grosso, the bad guy in the film, »
