Young Sheldon Season 1 Episode 1 Review

2 hours ago

Martin Carr reviews the premiere episode of Young Sheldon

Anyone old enough to remember The Wonder Years will feel a pang of nostalgia having finished the Young Sheldon pilot. Narrated by Jim Parsons this coming of age prequel was always going to live or die on that key casting call and thankfully Iain Armitage gets it spot on. Intellectual without sounding arrogant, blissfully unaware without being condescending and more importantly instantly watchable.

His family from twin sister Missy through to older brother Georgie are also pitch perfect within ten minutes making the whole pilot enjoyable. There are familiar faces from the original Big Bang and enough throwbacks to Sheldon specific quirks to make you smile. However what became apparent very quickly is that this is no laugh out loud comedy. This is an origin story to test the water, hence its truncated running time of twenty minutes and economic set up. »

Movie Review – Pecking Order (2017)

8 hours ago

Pecking Order, 2017.

Directed by Slavko Martinov.

Synopsis:

Fierce rivalries, club infighting, problematic birds and irregular judging are just some of the challenges faced by a group of zealous Kiwi chicken breeders hell-bent on victory at the 2015 National Poultry Show.

A documentary about competitive chicken breeding doesn’t sound like it will be entertaining, but somehow Slavko Martinov’s lovingly crafted documentary is enthralling, heart-warming and funny.

In the lead up to the 148th National Poultry Show, tensions are running high for at the Christchurch Poultry, Bantam & Pigeon Club and no one knows who’ll still be friends and who’ll be in charge on the big day.

Pecking Order starts by introducing us to the members of the club and they range from fathers and their sons, eccentric farmers and young girls who all want a shot at the title. What’s immediately apparent is that this documentary isn’t about chicken breeding, »

Peter Griffin killed Seth MacFarlane’s Flintstones reboot

9 hours ago

Way back in 2011, it was announced that Family Guy and American Dad! creator Seth MacFarlane was set to reboot the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon series The Flintstones.

The original plan was for the rebooted series to air on Fox in 2013, although that never materialised as MacFarlane shifted his attention to his live-action feature film Ted, and reports then emerged stating that Fox had put the project on the back-burner as executives did not think that Fred and friends would have enough appeal with adult audiences.

Well, speaking on a Reddit Ama to promote his new series The Orville, MacFarlane has now confirmed that The Flintstones is unlikely to ever move forward, stating that: “Honestly I couldn’t figure out a way to find enough differentiation between a modern-day Fred Flintstone and… Peter Griffin.”

Are you disappointed that we didn’t get to see MacFarlane’s take on The Flintstones, or are »
