Gunge, pub quizzes and a baby: Edinburgh Fringe review

17 August 2016 1:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jenny Morrill Alex Carter Aug 17, 2016

Get Your Own Back Live, Knightmare, Chloe from 24 and a bit of GroupOn? Jenny and Alex have been to the Fringe...

We've just spent a week at the Edinburgh Fringe, where we devoted equal amounts of time to eating, tutting and refusing leaflets. In between this, we managed to fit some shows in.

We're going to talk about some of these shows here, instead of telling you about the thousands of hipsters we encountered. Seriously, guy doing “street typing” on a typewriter – no thanks.

Get Your Own Back Live!

I'll cut to the chase here – being in the audience for Get Your Own Back Live was the most fun I've had since I was born. And I'm counting that time I found a bottle of mystery booze in a hedge.

The show is a pretty faithful (if cheaper and more self-aware) version of the original. »

The Girlfriend Experience: Season One Ratings

17 May 2016 7:17 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

TV shows on Starz typically draw pretty low ratings -- even Outlander, the cable channel's hit series. Could The Girlfriend Experience and its provocative subject matter end up drawing a big crowd? Does traditional television viewing even matter since the entire series is being made available on-demand? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.

On The Girlfriend Experience, a law student and law firm intern named Christine Reade (Riley Keough) becomes intrigued when a friend introduces her to "girlfriend experiences"; sexual encounters between an escort and a client that involve sexual intimacy and some degree of emotional intimacy. She quickly learns to navigate and manipulate the politics of both her worlds to get what she wants. The rest of the cast includes Paul Sparks, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kate Lyn Sheil, and Amy Seimetz.

Starz's 'The Girlfriend Experience' represents the downside of binge TV

8 April 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The binge forgives a lot. But it doesn't forgive everything. When you watch a lot of episodes of the same show in a row, it can be like inhaling a stack of Pringles, where you're not overly troubled by the flaws or the sameness in the product because it's just so easy to keep going on to the next one. I often get comments and emails from viewers who came to shows on Netflix or Amazon years after I initially reviewed them, expressing some version of, "I can see why this part bothered you watching week to week, but I barely noticed it in the binge." I've experienced it myself, even with non-streaming shows: when Showtime sent critics the first six episodes of Billions, I found myself mainly caught up in it because there were more episodes I could watch instantly to see what happened next; when I watched the »

TV Review: ‘The Girlfriend Experience’

30 March 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Billed as being “suggested by” the Steven Soderbergh film of the same name, “The Girlfriend Experience” is an interesting if somewhat unfocused look at sexual politics. And if the full 13-episode experience of this provocative half-hour drama isn’t wholly satisfying, in a strange way, that’s also sort of the point.

Money can’t buy love, as the song goes, but in this series (which Starz is making available for binge viewing), a few grand can purchase a reasonable facsimile thereof, provided by Christine (Riley Keogh), who goes by the professional name Chelsea. An intern at a Chicago law firm, she’s introduced to the world of transactional relationships by a classmate (Kate Lyn Sheil), although as is so often the case, the student quickly becomes the master — or rather, mistress. “You can be whoever you want to be,” she’s told.

Christine becomes a vessel into which these »

Check Out the Trailer for Steven Soderbergh's New Starz Series, 'The Girlfriend Experience'

21 January 2016 12:12 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

"The Girlfriend Experience" is a name that may sound familiar. In 2009, director Steven Soderbergh made a film by the same name that starred former adult film star Sasha Grey. The film followed a call girl and her attempts to juggle her normal and professional life, which consisted of her offering the girlfriend experience, which is, in essence, intimacy for hire.

Soderbergh apparently felt "The Girlfriend Experience" was a premise fit to expand, so he's done exactly that in this Starz series of the same name.

The series will be making its Sundance FIlm Festival debut on January 23, but you can check out the trailer below right now:

This particular iteration of the story follows a second-year law school student named Christine and her foray into offering GFEs once a classmate introduces it to her. Of course, the act of juggling two very different lifestyles has its price. The series stars Riley Keough, »

'24' Reboot Happening Without Jack Bauer

15 January 2016 2:21 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During its TCA winter tour panel, Fox announced that it has ordered the pilot 24: Legacy, a potential new series installment of the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise most recently revived as the event series 24: Live Another Day, it was announced today by Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs, Fox Television Group. This series will not feature Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer, with Entertainment Weekly reporting that the producers are seeking either an African-American actor or a Latino actor to portray a new character named Eric Carter. Here's what Fox Television CEO Gary Newman had to say in a statement.

'24' Sequel Series Will Not Star Kiefer Sutherland

15 January 2016 10:48 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

"24" is an interesting case study for American television. It came during a time of increased paranoia of terrorism, and a real gung-ho attitude among the general populous. Revisiting that series with a modern lens is definitely a cool experience, as it is very much a time capsule of a certain era, and while the recent 12-episode season, "24: Live Another Day" did a fairly solid job of updating the premise for a modern audience, in my mind, it could never shake its early-2000s roots.

With that in mind, it makes sense that Fox is looking to reboot this series from the ground up. While at the TV Critics Association Winter Press Tour, Fox announced that they will in fact be producing a pilot to a sequel series entitled "24: Legacy."

With any announcement like this, there are bound to be plenty of questions. Fox confirmed that this series will »

TV Review: ‘Superhuman’

1 January 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Brainy” and “reality TV” don’t often appear together in the same sentence, but Fox has actually provided at least a taste of the former in “Superhuman,” a competition format originated in Germany that’s receiving a tryout as a two-hour special. Kal Penn turns out to be natural as host of this intriguing display of memory, dexterity and other far-beyond-the-norm skills, which is actually done no favors by the expanded format, making some of the stunts begin to feel a tad repetitive. Nevertheless, one can easily see this returning to plug holes on nights where Fox’s ratings are less than super.

In addition to Penn, the producers flesh out the festivities with Mike Tyson and actress-comic Mary Lynn Rajskub, just because, as well as Dr. Rahul Jandial, who might be the world’s most dashing neurosurgeon. The good doctor helps explain how the brain works, while Rajskub and »
