Strictly Come Dancing 2017: the launch night – as it happened

Glitter gang, unite! Strictly is back and there’s a whole new batch of ballroom stars waiting to be paired with their partners. You joined us for every sparkling second

8.41pm BST

So that was the first instalment. There might not have been any big stars, but there was charm, glitter and great moves by the bucketful. Thanks very much for joining me. Here’s a final thought from sojomo.

I had forgotten how long it goes on.

Legs crossed time.

Must remember for the coming weeks: really shouldn't have so much to drink.

8.36pm BST

So judging by the group dance to Kenny Loggins’s Footloose, Chizzy is a useful mover, Debbie McGee can dance, Charlotte Hawkins has all the animation of a fossil and the hip-thrusting Rev is this year’s Ed Balls.

8.34pm BST

So that’s it, everyone’s paired off and Strictly 2017 can commence. Bruno

‘Archer: Danger Island’: Season 9 Title and Premise Revealed, as Archer Heads to the South Pacific

‘Archer: Danger Island’: Season 9 Title and Premise Revealed, as Archer Heads to the South Pacific
Archer is going even further back in time next season. After a year in “Dreamland” — specifically the year 1947 — “Archer: Danger Island,” Season 9, will take place in the spring of 1939 on a remote beach locale in the South Pacific.

Announced by executive producer Matt Thompson during the Comic-Con panel in San Diego, it was also unveiled that Archer will be a seaplane pilot with one eyepatch and two partners: One is Pam Poovy, his co-pilot who he’s gotten into “many scrapes” with across the globe. The other is a “talking, fucking” parrot named Crackers, who will be voiced by Lucky Yates (who usually plays Dr. Krieger).

Lana is a princess on the island, while Mallory is a bar owner and (unlike last season) Archer’s mother. Mallory’s character in “Dreamland” was not related to Archer, and voice actress Jessica Walter said she was glad the familial connection has been restored.

Newswire: Top Gun: Maverick to return to the danger zone July 2019

  • The AV Club
Notify Kenny Loggins and get the volleyball nets ready: The Tom Cruise-starring Top Gun sequel, Maverick, has received a release date from Paramount. According to Variety, Cruise will return to the danger zone on July 12, 2019, a scant 33 years after he hopped in the cockpit for the original.

Looking at the prospective 2019 film release calendar, Maverick doesn’t have any other movies to directly dogfight with on that date (yet). That being said, it will be running in the afterburner of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel (scheduled for July 5), with Disney’s Lion King (July 19) hot on its tail. Meanwhile, Maverick is still looking for a director to keep its head focused and flying straight; reportedly, Cruise’s old Oblivion director, Joseph Kosinski, is at the top of that list.

‘Playing House’s’ Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham on Why Season 3 is the ‘Most Important’ Work They’ve Ever Done

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched the entire third season of “Playing House,” available now on the USA App and VOD.

Midway through “Playing House’s” third season, Jessica St. Clair‘s Emma gets diagnosed with breast cancer. It is a story ripped from the headlines of St. Clair’s own life, who received her diagnosis only one week after finishing the second season in 2015. She then underwent a mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation. Lennon Parham, her co-star and co-creator of “Playing House,” was by her side every step of the way, taking notes on doctor appointments, medications, and even what elements of this unexpected journey would make for powerful storytelling on their show.

Variety spoke to St. Clair and Parham about how they decided what parts of the cancer journey to explore on-screen, drawing inspiration from “Ru Paul’s Drag Race,” and why they feel this more serious season is the most important work

Five TV Shows and Films That Need Virtual Reality Spin Offs

Neil Calloway imagines some projects that you should be able to enjoy in Virtual Reality

This week’s news that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan wants to “do something” involving the show and Virtual Reality may seem odd, but in a world where we want increasing interactivity, it’s not too surprising that familiar properties will want to use Vr.

Here are five TV shows and Films that would be brilliant to experience in Virtual Reality

Star Wars. Why bother walking around Albuquerque in Virtual Breaking Bad when you can visit the Mos Eisley Cantina or the Death Star while wearing a Vr headset? If the forthcoming Star Wars Land at Disney doesn’t contain a Vr playground then its creators are missing a trick. As long as they make sure Han shoots first.

Alien. Staying on a science fiction theme, who wouldn’t want to join the crew of

Flashback: A Random 78 Minutes of MTV From June 1982

A little under a year ago we got tremendously excited when we learned that VH1 Classic was going to be reborn as MTV Classic. Visions of Remote Control marathons filled our heads along with the chance to finally see if lost classics like The State, The Ben Stiller Show, The Tom Green Show and The Andy Milonakis Show lived up to our memories. The MTV vault was overflowing with half-forgotten gems and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to see them again.

‘Top Gun': A Short History of the Volleyball Scene (Photos)
In the thirty years since “Top Gun” was released, its sporty, bro-mantic volleyball scene has been parodied and oft-mocked for its not-so-subdued sexuality, set to the tune of Kenny Loggins’ “Playing With the Boys.” Director Tony Scott knew full well that women and men alike would likely be titilated by the sight of shirtless actors Tom Cruise (Maverick), Anthony Edwards (Goose), Val Kilmer(Iceman) and Rick Rossovich (Slider) — and eagerly put the film’s pretty-boy pilots on fully oiled display. “I didn’t have a vision of what I was doing other than just doing soft porn,” Scott recalled with

Video Game Review – Danger Zone

Shaun Munro reviews Danger Zone

Though Burnout fans are still lamenting the series’ unjust demise, a group of former Criterion Games founders have banded together under a new studio, Three Fields Entertainment, to recreate a small sliver of the racing franchise’s most beloved mainstay – Crash Mode.

For those who weren’t fortunate enough to experience the glory of Crash Mode back in the day, it hurled players (and their cars) into a stretch of traffic and begged them to set off a series of collisions, using their car to kick-start the orgy of crashes. After that initial contact, the player’s ride of choice would then fly through the air in slow-motion while they attempted to use their momentum to steer into other vehicles and cause as convoluted a domino effect of vehicular carnage as possible, all while the resulting damage was duly tallied up as a dollar value.

How Pierce Brosnan's Wife Put His Heart Back Together Again
Pierce Bronsan and Keely Shaye Smith will be celebrating 16 years of marriage in August, but the couple have been making us swoon over their romance long before then. Pierce and Keely began dating in 1994, and the story of how they met is actually very similar to that of his Mamma Mia! costar Meryl Streep and her husband, Don Gummer. Pierce lost his wife of 11 years and the mother of three kids, Cassandra Harris, in 1991, and three years later, he met Keely while she was working as a TV correspondent at a party in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Keely was sent to interview Ted Danson and ended up connecting with Pierce instead. "He was captivating," Keely told People in 2001. "Tall, dark and handsome, everything that everybody would immediately be attracted to. He had this mischievous sparkle in his eyes. I thought, 'Wow! Wow!'"

Episode Title: “Waxing Gibbous

Network Synopsis: All roads lead to Len Trexler as Archer and the gang try to avoid unfriendly ghosts.

Why You Should Watch: This season of “Archer” has been another season-long monkey wrench in the animated show’s mythology. But underneath all the fedoras and three-piece suits, it’s still the same show, even as its characters have been transplanted to the ’40s. In Dreamland, anything goes, so leave it to Sterling and the gang to lean into the metaphysical, even as a haunted house might be in the way of the truth.

‘Over the Top’ Under the Microscope

What is it about this big, dumb movie that gets me every time?

You can go ahead and sheathe your Tweets, we are well aware that 1987’s Over the Top is a flawed piece of cinema. It’s called Over the Top for crying out loud; if ever the writing was on the wall. However, there is something about this spectacular failed attempt to take the sport of armwrestling mainstream that continues to delight and inspire this writer and the other hosts of the Junkfood Cinema podcast. If you currently sneer at “that movie where Sylvester Stallone armwrestles for custody of his son,” allow me to offer an argument in favor of Over the Top. Look, just read it, ok? Meet me halfway.

While the popular logline for Over the Top is not entirely accurate, it’s unquestionable that it is a silly movie. Truckers getting their faces smacked before armwrestling each other in sweaty diner back

Pierce Brosnan found happiness after tragedy.

The actor met his current wife, Keely Shaye Smith, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in 1994 when she was working as a TV correspondent — two years after he had lost his first wife and mother of three children Cassandra to cancer. Smith was sent to interview Ted Danson, but when the actor was called away, Smith and Brosnan connected at a party.

Thundercat: Making Jazz Fusion Cool Again

First of all, there’s his instrument. It’s ostensibly a bass, but it’s got six strings, and it’s running through a couple different effects that make it sound like a guitar. Also, Thundercat (né Stephen Bruner) is playing it so fast that he makes the thing sound like a Metallica guitar solo, but instead of thrash metal, he and his band are pumping out a strange mix of extremely adept jazz, funk and R&B, all of which anchor his silky falsetto. (And on one of his recent singles, the equally silky voices of Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins.

Daryl Hall Suing New York Town Over Occupancy at 'Daryl's House'

Daryl Hall wants to move the music outside for his hit show, "Live from Daryl's House" -- but first he'll have to battle an upstate New York town in court. Daryl's House, the venue where the show is taped, recently filed suit against Pawling, NY for blocking the joint from building an outdoor stage. The town's beef is all about occupancy. Daryl's team says it's being forced to cut it from 318 people to 198 ... or risk getting shut down altogether.

Movie Villains I Love: Bull Hurley in “Over the Top”

One of the most underrated cheesy 80s movies involving Sylvester Stallone (other than Cobra) has got to be Over The Top. Look, any movie featuring an incredible ballad by none other than Kenny Loggins (Meet me Halfway) has to fall into the “cheesy” category. Plus it’s the only arm wrestling movie in the history of movies that’s worth a salt. Other than Lincoln Hawk’s (Sylvester Stallone) bratty and annoying son, this movie 100% rocks. Part of the reason I can look back on it today and love it so much was the movie’s villain, Bull Hurley. The late Richard “Rick”
