14 April 2014 11:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Queer As Folk, Season 1, Episode 1 “Pilot”

Directed by Charles McDougall

Written by Russell T. Davies

Original Air Date: 23 February 1999

That Certain Summer, a made for TV movie, airs as the ABC Movie of the Week. It is the first TV movie to deal with the subject of homosexuality cordially. In 1975, ABC debuts Hot l Baltimore, a short lived Norman Lear series, which features the first gay couple on TV. In 1991, the first kiss between a homosexual couple airs on network TV during an episode of L.A. Law. In 1989 an episode of the Us drama thirtysomething featured the first gay male couple to be shown in bed together. The brief clip is considered a TV landmark, and of course proved extremely controversial at the time. 

Ten years later, Russell T. Davies (who would go on to helm the current BBC revival of Doctor Who, as well as creating the spinoff Torchwood »

‘Sons Of Anarchy’ In Rearview Mirror, Ron Perlman Signs With Gersh

11 April 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Gersh has signed Ron Perlman and his production company. After Hellboy and Sons Of Anarchy, Perlman is building the next chapter of his career. He’s not letting any moss grow under him since completing his superb turn as Sons biker club leader Clay Morrow. Perlman has optioned several screenplays, he is currently starring in and exec producing Hand Of God, a pilot for Amazon that Marc Forster is directing, and he has made a deal to co-write with Michael Largo the memoir Easy Street—The Hard Way that will be published by Perseus Books Group imprint Da Capo Press. I had the honor of being asked by Kurt Sutter to moderate the Sons panel that closed San Diego Comic-Con, and found Perlman to be so subdued and fatalistic about his character’s future on the show, almost seeming ashamed of what his character had done.

Things we don't admit when watching brilliant TV shows

6 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Louisa Mellor Simon Brew 7 Apr 2014 - 06:55

Who’s that? What did she just say? Wait, he’s English? Here are the things we don’t admit when watching acclaimed TV shows…

Omission makes the world go round. Without the art of keeping things to ourselves, most social interactions would disintegrate within seconds. Too much soul-baring honesty would snap the taut bonds that keep us all from running screaming through the Toby Carvery of a Sunday lunchtime jabbing family members with corn-on-the-cob prongs. We’re a tightly wound, insular people, the British. It takes court injunctions and Jeremy Kyle to prise loose our secrets.

Every so often though, it does us good to share. It’s cathartic to confess, between friends, that we’re sometimes a little bit lacking or dim. In the spirit of honesty and self-improvement then, here are the things we’d rather not admit to »

Charlie Hunnam Sports Clean-Shaven Face in Toronto: Picture

1 April 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Is this the Christian Grey that could have been? Charlie Hunnam looked almost unrecognizable as he stepped out in Toronto on Monday, March 31. The typically furry-faced Sons of Anarchy hunk was photographed with a clean-shaven face after picking up some knick knacks at a grocery store. Hunnam, 33, looked slim as he wore loose-fitting jeans and a zip-up sweatshirt. His signature scruff was all gone as he kept his blonde locks swept back. He wrapped Season 6 of his gritty FX smash Sons of Anarchy back [...] »

Charlie Hunnam Shows Off New Clean-Shaven Look—See the Pic!

31 March 2014 5:11 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Charlie Hunnam is almost unrecognizable!  The handsome Sons of Anarchy star got rid of his signature full beard over weekend and emerged on Sunday with a smooth, shaven face while grocery shopping in Toronto. The 33-year-old kept his look casual and relaxed for outing, slicking his hair back and wearing a gray hoodie, jeans and Nike sneakers. This unexpected change is a departure for the actor, who normally sports major scruff to play the role of Jax Teller on the popular FX series. However, his sexy appearance definitely had a positive effect on the female fans, who flocked around him as he left the store. The Brit is currently in Canada shooting Crimson Peak with Guillermo del Toro, »

Fifty Shades of Grey movie 'surprisingly tame'

26 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Early footage of the film of El James' bestselling books has disappointed, with the S&M toned down in favour of romance

• Fifty Shades movie pushed back to Valentine's Day 2015

It is the high-profile, big screen adaptation of a knee-trembling literary sensation that has left more than 70m readers hot under the collar. But verdicts on the first footage from Sam Taylor-Johnson's take on El James' Fifty Shades of Grey suggest the film version of the S&M-flavoured novel may in fact be rather tame.

Studio Universal screened scenes for journalists and cinema owners at the annual CinemaCon event in Las Vegas yesterday, with reports suggesting there could be little in the way of erotic tension on show when the movie hits cinemas next year. Stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who play kinky billionaire Christian Grey and his willing, well-remunerated "sex-slave" Anastasia Steele, were mostly seen "making moon-eyes at each other", suggested attendees. »

My guilty pleasure: Green Street

24 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This football hooligan genre film about an expelled Harvard student who joins West Ham's firm is compellingly awful – but it's entertaining if you can't sleep

• More from My guilty pleasure

I am prone to insomnia. I'll lie in bed for a couple of hours, then go turn on the TV and flick through the channels until I find something that holds my attention, often on the film channels. Sometimes it's The Ring, but, when it's on, nothing beats Green Street (Green Street Hooligans in the Us). I've seen it countless times now, though I'm not sure I've ever seen it in its entirety at one sitting – it tends to be 30 minutes here, 45 there, an hour somewhere else. But between all those partial sittings, I've managed several complete run-throughs.

It's not that I'm a fan of the football hooligan genre – I've dabbled in one or two others and found them unwatchable, »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 3rd 2014

3 March 2014 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This week it finally happened, Lovefilm is no more, it has now been completely consumed by its Amazon overlords and is now known as Amazon Prime and something that operates totally through your Amazon account should you have one.

At first this was a baffling experience, there was rumours of a lot more new content being added and when you logged into the Ios app for Lovefilm/Amazon post switchover, suddenly you were faced with A Lot of new content, things like Aliens, Congo, Cujo, Invaders from Mars and lots of HBO shows including Eastbound and Down, Enlightened and the Sopranos as well as Community in the ‘Recently Added’ section.

Of course this was too good to be true and you could add these to your watchlist but then not actually watch them. So when things calmed down and you logged back in, these titles it turned out were part »

Queer As Folk is 15 years old: Looking back on a classic

23 February 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

15 years is a long time. It's a whole Nathan Maloney. And yet - as much as Stuart Alan Jones would hate the reminder - today marks 15 years since Queer As Folk hit our television screens.

Since I was 10 the first time the show was on air, it's not much of a surprise that I didn't see it then (I assume I was more concerned with the Spice Girls and getting the DJ at our Year Six disco to play 'Sex on the Beach'). But watching it now, it's a pleasure to see that the show lives up to all its hype.

Yes, it was a groundbreaking show. This was a series which focused on gay men, that didn't shy away from getting graphic, and that was unapologetic in its subject matter. But aside from breaking the taboos, and the importance of having a series like that on television, was it actually any good? »

Toy Fair: Over 250 Pictures From Convention Floor Including Frozen, Breaking Bad, Doctor Who, Sons Of Anarchy, Anchorman 2, and More

17 February 2014 7:38 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As someone with a major soft spot for Funko products, their booth at Toy Fair 2014 was a standout.  The company came with dozens of brand new items including The Walking Dead and Guardians of the Galaxy bobble heads, and Pop! collections for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Ghostbusters, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and more. Mattel showed off new Hot Wheels and Frozen products while Mezco Toyz previewed brand new pieces for Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad including a variety of six-inch Walter Whites (Bryan Cranston), a replication of the infamous pink teddy bear, and Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and Clay (Ron Perlman) figurines. Underground Toys had a huge assortment of Doctor Who products while Cryptozoic Entertainment put some of their new trading card series on display.  We even caught the Khaleesi trying to sell some dragon eggs (or rather, paperweights) on the convention center floor.  We also got a »

Entertainment Geekly: Let's Cast Everyone In Everything

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

The vast majority of human beings will never cast anyone in anything, but that doesn’t mean we can’t hold opinions about who should (and shouldn’t) play some beloved character in the next blockbuster iteration of that character’s franchise. Recently, I’ve engaged in a bit of fantasy casting for the Justice League movie, the next Fantastic Four movie, and the next next Amazing Spider-Man movie. In an effort to »
