Insights: Snapchat, Netflix, And SAG-aftra Games—Tech And Hollywood Cultures Collide

21 October 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

One of the great joys of this column is investigating what happens when tech creations and companies run smack dab into (and over) long-established Hollywood business models, mores, and culture.

So, for me, this is a great time, because we’re seeing a wad of these collisions, particularly around who gets to participate in the long-term success of projects from Hollywood veterans that may be funded and distributed by tech firms.

Nowhere is that more obvious right now than in the strike that started at 12:01 this morning by Hollywood actors union SAG-aftra against 11 video game publishers. One big issue is “secondary compensation,” basically some form of bonus pay for voice actors who help make hit games.

The game business has long tapped top Hollywood voice talent for high-end titles such as Destiny, one of my current gamer jams, which has features Nathan Fillion, Peter Dinklage, Bill Nighy, Gina Torres, »

Westworld episode 3 review: The Stray

16 October 2016 7:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Oct 17, 2016

Westworld has its best episode yet in The Stray, which confirms its status as the most accomplished new Us show of 2016...

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 The Stray

“When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.”

These are famous words about the stories we tell ourselves, explaining how a culture can rewrite its history, its reality, and presumably its destiny. They were first uttered in John Ford’s The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) and at the time directly reflected the romanticisation of the Old West, with a newspaperman refusing to print the truth about Jimmy Stewart’s decades-old lie about being the hero that plugged the titular bad man. And now in Westworld, Anthony Hopkins’ Dr »

‘Westworld’ Review: ‘The Stray’ Doesn’t Skimp on the Bloody Psychology

Last Week’S Review: Episode 2, ‘Chestnut,’ Reveals a Deeper Level to the Game

Diagnostic Report

We begin with a very private book club meeting between Dolores and Bernard, who’s apparently been giving the host books to read, with this week’s selection being “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” Dolores in general seems to be changing — and more importantly, remembering the things that have happened to her in past loops. Perhaps that’s what pushes her to start wanting more with Teddy, the fact that she’s just now becoming aware of the fact that things can change.

It’s here in Episode 3 that we get a more solid understanding of the loops that drive the established regular narratives — at this point, we’ve gotten used to familiar lines like, “Just trying to be chivalrous” and “Ain’t much of a rind on you.” But we’re also seeing more »

Westworld Recap: Somehow, Someday, Somewhere

16 October 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Westworld recap here.

Westworld‘s Teddy is one cute, sharp-cheekboned cowboy. But, if things continue apace, he’s going to have to rely on more than his looks, manners and tragic backstory to keep the love of his country cutie.

See, Delores is becoming a sentient being before our very eyes — a development that Sunday’s episode, “The Stray,” makes rather clear. And her fledgling personhood means she’s no longer swayed by her beau’s scripted promises of how they’ll be happy “someday.”

Delores needs someone with whom she »

Review: In 'The Stray,' 'Westworld' asks how much the robots really remember

16 October 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Westworld coming up just as soon as I use my employee discount... "There aren't two versions of me. There's only one. And I think when I discover who I am, I'll be free." -Dolores Memory has been a very public fascination of Jonathan Nolan's going back to the short story that inspired Memento, so it's not surprising that the question of what the hosts remember — and what the Delos staff would like to forget — has been such a key part of Westworld. As Dr. Ford explains to Bernard, he and the park's co-founder, the mysterious Arnold, understood that the robots were there only to serve the guests, but that they could do them a kindness of keeping the hosts from remembering all the terrible things they experienced in the course of their duties. The problem is, that kindness is starting to fail, and the robots' »

Suits Round Table: Farewell, Jessica Pearson

21 September 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Jessica has left the building.

On Suits Season 6 Episode 10, Jessica left the firm after helping Rachel win Leonard Bailey his freedom. 

TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman, Jasmine Blu, Christine Hinton and Allison Nichols discuss Jessica's goodbye, Leonard being set free and what's next. 

What did you think of Jessica's exit?

Stacy: I love Jessica, and I'm sad to see her go, but, if she had to leave, I'm happy with the way they wrote her out. I loved the flashbacks, watching her remember why she became a lawyer in the first place, and getting the win with Leonard. It was all very emotional.

Jasmine: I'm devastated. I love Gina Torres and Jessica was my favorite! The show never delved into her character development as much as the others to me. Her departure was bittersweet and subdued, too subdued. Watching the show will ever be the same.

Christine: I started watching Suits because of Gina Torres. »

Performer of the Week: Blindspot's Jaimie Alexander

17 September 2016 6:08 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Jaimie Alexander

The Show | Blindspot

The Episode | “In Night So Ransomed Rogue” (Sept. 14, 2016)

The Performance | As far as memorable entrances go, crawling out of a duffel bag in the heart of New York City is a tough act to follow.

And yet, as soon as Blindspot‘s sophomore premiere began Wednesday night, Alexander had us as captivated as we were the moment we first laid eyes on her inked Jane Doe last fall — and she didn’t let up one bit in the hour that followed.

From scene to scene, moment to moment, Alexander showed us a myriad of different Janes, »

Designated Survivor Review: POTUSing Comes Too Easily for Kiefer Sutherland

16 September 2016 9:56 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Kiefer Sutherland’s new ABC drama Designated Survivor boasts the highest of high concepts: What if a low-level government schlub was thrust into the Presidency following a deadly attack? It’s an instantly gripping premise (previously mined by Battlestar Galactica), but a tricky one to pull off, and Designated Survivor (premiering Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 10/9c) stumbles a bit in the execution.

We watched Sutherland crack skulls and foil terrorist plots as tough-guy agent Jack Bauer for nine seasons on Fox’s 24, so it’s almost comical to see him here as a soft-spoken bureaucrat. His character, Cabinet member Tom Kirkman, »

Gina Torres‘ stint on the unemployment line was, to put it mildly, brief.

Spoiler Alert: This story contains spoilers regarding the “Suits” Season 6 summer finale, which aired on Wednesday, Sept. 14 on USA Network

Gina Torres has joined ABC’s Shondaland series “The Catch” for Season 2, Variety has learned.

Torres’ casting comes just after she exited “Suits” on the show’s summer finale last night. She had been on the long-running USA Network series for five-and-a-half seasons. However, Torres is joining ABC’s “The Catch” in a recurring role, and “Suits” creator Aaron Korsh said in recent interviews there is a possibility the actress can return to his show in guest spots.

Last pilot season, Torres was cast as the lead in ABC’s “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez,” and though the project was not picked up to series, her “Suits” departure came into discussion at the time of that pilot. Though “Eva Sofia Valdez” didn’t go all the way, the network kept an eye on Torres and found »

Suits Season 6 Episode 10 Review: P.S.L.

14 September 2016 8:15 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Jessica Pearson has left the building. 

Suits Season 6 Episode 10 served as Gina Torres' final episode with the USA Network hit, but it was difficult to feel much emotion in the exit of this pivotal character. 

It's been clear for quite some time now that Jessica would be moving on. All it took was saving Leonard Bailey's life to make her realize it. 

The flashbacks were a nice touch and went a long way to show us just how Jessica has always fought for what she believes in and the show will never be the same without her. 

It seems like the reason she sent Harvey and Louis to try and save the firm was because she wanted to know if the firm was safe in their hands. It was. 

Sure, there were some hurdles along the away, as all of the drama with Sutter had a halo effect »
