Things You Never Knew About ‘Gilmore Girls’

Gilmore Girls is a television show beloved by many around the world. Set in the fictional small (and quirky) American town of Stars Hollow, it told the tale of mother and daughter Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) Gilmore. The pair have one of the strongest mother/daughter bonds ever witnessed (be that in TV land or the real world) and for seven years, and one reunion show, the dramas of their lives kept audiences captivated. Now the full set of episodes (including the Netflix revival) are available to own forever, and to celebrate its release, we’ve rounded up ten things that you probably didn’t know about the show.

1. Sorry to shatter the illusion folks, but it turns out that Alexis Bledel doesn’t like coffee! We all know that both Rory and Lorelai are obsessed with the stuff, but Bledel just can’t stomach it. So

Fresh Off the Boat: Season Four Viewer Votes

Are the Huangs sailing toward success, in the fourth season of the Fresh Off the Boat TV show on ABC? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether the TV show Fresh Off the Boat is cancelled or renewed for season five.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

Blu-ray

Criterion

1992/ 1:85 / 135 Min. / Street Date October 17, 2017

Starring Sheryl Lee, David Lynch, Ray Wise, Kyle MacLachlan

Cinematography by Ron Garcia

Written by David Lynch, Robert Engels

Music by Angelo Badalamenti

Edited by Mary Sweeney

Produced by Mark Frost, Tim Harbert, David Lynch

Directed by David Lynch

Making its debut in April of 1990, Twin Peaks arrived on ABC’s doorstep as a kind of Trojan horse, infiltrating the network disguised as a weekly melodrama while hiding its arthouse inclinations behind a Peyton Place exterior. A supernatural soap opera governed by doppelgängers, time travelers and the transmigration of souls, director David Lynch’s effort was a short-lived sensation but has since enjoyed its own reincarnations in a feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, and the Showtime series, Twin Peaks: The Return.

The Return reunited the familiar characters created by Lynch and Mark Frost

Halloween 2017: “Why Horror?” Double Feature – Digging Up The Marrow and The Cabin In The Woods

  • DailyDead
[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Check here for more double feature recommendations and other Halloween 2017 coverage.]

As horror lovers, we tend to spend most of October drowning ourselves in our favorite movies (even more than the rest of the year), revisiting those titles that remind us of the season or which have become an annual tradition. Never is this more true than on Halloween night, when so many of us have our go-to titles without which the holiday wouldn’t be complete: “It’s not Halloween unless I watch The Exorcist,” or “It’s not Halloween unless I watch the remake of The Fog!” Some of you are weird.

I get it. I don’t have any hard and fast rules about what I watch every Halloween, but I always make it a point to watch something. And while I know many of you will turn to the original Halloween or Trick ’r Treat or even Night of the Demons, I want to offer an alternative

Halloween 2017: 11 Movies You Should Watch on Shudder

  • DailyDead
We’re in the last remaining days of October, meaning many of us will be trying to cram in as many horror movies as possible between now and Halloween. For my last round of Shudder picks this month, I thought I’d go with a much looser theme: there’s nothing that ties these titles together except that they’re really good movies I think you should watch. Some you may recognize, others may be less familiar to you. All of them are worth streaming on Shudder.

The Bride of Frankenstein (1935, dir. James Whale) It’s not officially October without the Universal Monsters, so big thanks to Shudder for adding most of the big ones to their expanding library of streaming options. There’s no wrong choice when it comes to the classics, but I’ll make the case that Universal never got better than The Bride of Frankenstein, James Whale

Jeepers Creepers 3 TV Premiere Locked In For Late October

Contentious horror threequel Jeepers Creepers 3 is coming to TV a lot sooner than you think, thanks to Syfy’s ongoing 31 Days of Halloween event.

Word comes by way of Dread Central, confirming that Victor Salva’s troubled and indeed long-in-development flick will swoop onto television on Saturday, October 28th at 9pm, before Syfy stages an encore showing on Sunday, October 29th at the earlier time of 7pm.

Since Jeepers Creepers 3 was first hatched, Salva’s follow-up has become the cinematic equivalent of a hot potato. Major theaters chains quickly distanced themselves from the project, restricting Jeepers Creepers 3 to one-night-only screenings back in September.

Of course, as I’m sure you’re well aware, Victor Salva’s criminal record is the sole source of controversy, given the filmmaker was convicted for sexual misconduct with a minor more than 10 years ago. His victim, Nathan Forrest Winters, has since issued

Fresh Off the Boat: Season Four Ratings

Although, last season, its demo numbers were similar to those that saw Last Man Standing cancelled, and it drew a similar total number of viewers to cancelled ABC sitcoms Dr Ken and Downward Dog, the Fresh Off the Boat TV show managed to land a fourth season renewal from the Alphabet Network. There are already 60 episodes in the can, so after this installment, it will have a decent sized syndication package. Could this be the end for the Huang family? Will Fresh Off the Boat be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned.

‘Kevin (Probably) Saves the World’: The Show’s Unique Premise Owes Inspiration to Jewish Mythology

‘Kevin (Probably) Saves the World’: The Show’s Unique Premise Owes Inspiration to Jewish Mythology
[Editor’s note: Light spoilers for the premiere episode of “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” follow.]

The new shows that make up the bulk of the fall broadcast TV season fall into pretty obvious categories: military drama (“The Brave”), medical drama (“The Good Doctor”), family comedy/annual expansion of the Chuck Lorre empire (“Young Sheldon”).

And then there’s “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World,” the ABC drama airing Tuesday nights, which doesn’t fit neatly into any box in particular. The official synopsis, per ABC:

Kevin Finn (Jason Ritter) is not a good person. He’s not terrible, but he’s selfish, and clueless, and values material wealth and status over all else. And he’s beginning to realize that those things aren’t making him happy – in fact, he’s fairly miserable. Just when things seem to be at their worst, he finds himself tasked with an unbelievable mission… saving the world…

Syfy Plans To Host TV Premiere Of Jeepers Creepers 3 Later This Month

From Jigsaw to Leatherface to Amityville: The Awakening, this Halloween season will soon present horror fans with an embarrassment of riches as theaters across the globe begin hosting all sorts of cinematic ghosts and ghouls.

But if there’s one movie that was quietly shunned by distributors, it’s Jeepers Creepers 3 (for good reason, too, but more on that later). Yes, after years spent languishing on the brink of development, Victor Salva’s threequel faced another uphill battle when many of America’s major theater chains dropped it like a hot potato. Only a small handful of companies stood firm, leading to an exclusive one-night-only screening via Regal Theaters.

Such pent-up demand led to Jeepers Creepers 3 securing a second theatrical showing (October 4th), but other than that, the film’s distribution is about as limited as they come. Leave it to Syfy, then, to step in and secure JC3‘s TV premiere.

‘Neo Yokio’ Voice Cast: A Visual Guide to Who Played Whom in New Netflix Animated Series
[Editor’s note: This post contains very minor spoilers for Season 1 of “Neo Yokio.”]

Netflix has a fascinating track record with animation, taking big chances especially with adult-aimed series like “BoJack Horseman” and “F Is for Family” over the last few years. Its latest venture, “Neo Yokio,” looks nothing like either of those series — instead, it draws its visual inspiration from decades of anime as it brings us into the futuristic world created by Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig.

What does give “Neo Yokio” something in common with its Netflix sisters is its A-list voice cast, which features an eclectic but overall critically acclaimed group of actors, including Jaden Smith as young demon hunter Kaz, who just wants to be the most eligible bachelor in town, despite the growing sense that things might not be what they seem in this society.

Who are the other famous faces behind the scenes? Below is an illustrated guide to all of Neo Yokio’s VIPs.

Twin Peaks: Season Three Ratings

During its first season in 1990, Twin Peaks performed quite well for ABC. In season two, the series endured multiple timeslot changes and resolved the foundational mystery of who killed Laura Palmer partway through. Unsurprisingly, its ratings fell off and the network cancelled the mystery horror drama, which went on to spawn a feature film prequel, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. Now that Showtime has revived the soapy supernatural series, how will it fare? Will Twin Peaks be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? Stay tuned. The Twin Peaks TV series revival kicks off 25 years after the murder of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) shocked the seemingly tranquil town of Twin Peaks, Washington. It centers on the return of idiosyncratic FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan).

‘Twin Peaks’ Finale Made Women Far More Than Just Victims, but Soldiers in the Bigger Battle

‘Twin Peaks’ Finale Made Women Far More Than Just Victims, but Soldiers in the Bigger Battle
The beauty of how David Lynch and Mark Frost ended “Twin Peaks” is that so many clues have been left open to interpretation. IndieWire wrote about one theory, in which Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) has been positioned as the savior, a white knight for good who will attempt to save Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) over and over again against the forces of evil.

But while “The Return” traced Cooper’s slow awakening from his Dougie stupor to the familiar coffee-loving FBI agent, the season also marked a gradual transition from the depiction of women as victims of violence to figures who have actively been locked in the fight all along. It turns out that this has been a battle with female forces on both sides, ranging from the deep evil known as Judy and the frightening Sarah Palmer (Grace Zabriskie) to Laura as “The One” and even Audrey Horne (Sherilyn Fenn
