TV News: Leftovers, Knick, Wife, Danger

The Leftovers

Want answers to the central mystery of the 'Sudden Departure' in HBO's "The Leftovers"? You probably aren't going to get them - or at least not in the way you may want. Vulture just ran a lengthy interview with author Tom Perrotta in which the following quote was dropped:

"To hear [Producer Damon] Lindelof tell it, a big reveal seems unlikely. 'If that's why you're watching the show, don't watch the show.'" In fact there was "defining creative tension" between himself and Lindelof as the question of whether supernatural events can happen on the show.

The Knick

Steven Soderbergh says he had such fun doing his upcoming medical drama "The Knick," which premieres in early August, that he's keen on getting going on a second season and is just waiting for the official go ahead from Cinemax:

"We'll find out within the next couple of weeks. I know they're happy. »

Too Much of a Good Thing? Are We Facing Superhero Film Overkill

25 June 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 In the cinematic arms race between Marvel and DC, 23 films are scheduled to be released over the next three years. Is this ambitious plan from the two companies a good strategy or are they creating a self-defeating situation where the public will say “enough already!”

Most of us love superhero adaptations—at least, some of them. But as much as we enjoy it, is there a danger of an overdose of comic book films? Will it become like eating too much chocolate and getting a belly ache?

Look at this list…

Marvel has…Guardians of the Galaxy; The Avengers: Age of Ultron; Ant-Man; Captain America 3; Dr. Strange; Thor 3; The Avengers 3; The Fantastic Four; X-Men: Apocalypse; The Wolverine sequel; The Fantastic Four 2;  Spider-Man 3 and 4, Sinister 6, Venon and an untitled project which could be the Sub Mariner.

And DC has…Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice; Shazam; Sandman; Justice League; Wonder »

"Danger Mouse" Rebooted For The Cbbc

17 June 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Over two decades since it wrapped, much loved 1980s British cartoon series "Danger Mouse" is coming out of retirement with FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment teaming with the BBC to produce a 52-episode new series to air on Cbbc next year in the UK.

A parody of the Bond films and TV's "Danger Man", the Cosgrove Hall Films production followed an eye-patched white mouse who is also the world's greatest secret agent. He and his bespectacled and reluctant hamster assistant Penfold work out of their base within a red postbox.

Together they battled the evil machinations of the wheezy voiced toad Baron Silas Greenback and his crow assistant Stiletto Mafiosa. On occasion the vampire Count Duckula was the antagonist, and he went on to score his own spin-off series.

161 episodes were produced over a decade and the show proved to be an international hit, even in the United States market where »

‘Danger Mouse’ Reloaded At Cbbc

17 June 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In a move sure to delight readers of a certain age, cult cartoon Danger Mouse is headed back to TV. Following the misadventures of an intrepid rodent with a talent for espionage, the tongue in cheek format saw the title character take on the machinations of the evil Baron Greenback, all the while assisted by his fragile hamster assistant Penfold.

Voiced by David Jason and Carry On star Terry Scott, the show had quite a pedigree and though casting has yet to be confirmed it’s a likely bet Jason will return. He is reviving his Granville character for a full series of rebooted sitcom Still Open All Hours and is probably in nostalgic mood. As it only takes a quick trip to the recording studio I can see him lending his wily vocal talents to “Dm” once more. Scott is sadly no longer with us, so if Jason decides »

Danger Mouse Will Return!

17 June 2014 2:40 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

First it was Bananaman that was being unpeeled for a new generation. Now, from a post box somewhere on Baker Street, cartoon superspy Danger Mouse is about to get the same treatment. Current rights-holders Fremantle have decided to bring him out of his 23-year retirement, thanks to some strong ratings during a Citv retro weekend, albeit on the small screen rather than the large.An animated series from Cosgrove Hall in the early '80s, Danger Mouse was a secret agent, channelling James Bond and Danger Man, and getting involved in a lot of very silly nonsense on a weekly basis. He drove a flying car; his sidekick was the blundering hamster Penfold; his "M" was Colonel K. (a chinchilla); and his arch enemy was the wheezy toad Baron Greenback, who had a crow henchman called Stiletto, and was always up to dastardly schemes like trying to melt the North Pole. »

How Hammer Got Its Scare Back

8 April 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It has been dismissed over the years as cheesy, cheap and laughable but, as has been the case on many occasions, Hammer Films have had the last laugh. They boast a back-catalogue that is to horror movies what The Rolling Stones’ discography is to rock music. Fifty-nine years after the release of their first horror movie proper (The Quatermass Xperiment), Hammer’s films have survived scrutiny and re-evaluation and have now attained National Treasure status. Moreover, in terms of sheer importance, the Hammer films were some of the most influential of the past half-century. The ripple-effect of their imitators cashing in on their success would beget the careers of some of the biggest names in Hollywood today.

And yet since 1984 Hammer has been a dormant entity, existing only in the memory: a pile of ashes, a cape and a signet ring waiting to be reanimated by the crimson, jugular discharge of some poor, »

Kata O'Mara Dies

30 March 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

To TV viewers of a certain age, Kate O’Mara was that rare blend of sex appeal, scares and sassiness. So it is with another “S” word, sadness, that we report she has died at the age of 74.Born in 1939, the daughter of an Raf flying instructor and an actress, O’Mara initially considered art following her boarding school education but quickly became a full-time actress.

She became known for her sultry performances and her ability to blend beauty with danger. Her most notable roles came with soaps or sci-fi, including ferry drama Triangle, boating soap Howard’s »

Kate O'Mara 1939-2014: Obituary of Doctor Who, Dynasty star

30 March 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Born in Leicester on August 10, 1939, Frances M Carroll would go on to become a screen idol under her chosen stage name of Kate O'Mara.

The daughter of actress Hazel Bainbridge and Raf flying instructor John F Carroll, O'Mara followed a stint at boarding school with enrolment at art school, before achieving her goal of becoming a full-time actress.

Making her stage debut in a production of Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice in 1963, O'Mara soon moved into the popular world of television. Throughout the '60s, she appeared in such iconic series as Danger Man, The Champions, The Saint, The Avengers and Z-Cars.

Moving into the 1970s, O'Mara also found success on the big screen – starring in two Hammer Horror outings, The Vampire Lovers and The Horror of Frankenstein – but it was a return to television for BBC drama The Brothers that made her a household name.

Doctor Who: the film careers of William Hartnell & Jon Pertwee

26 March 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Alex Westthorp 28 Mar 2014 - 07:00

In a new series, Alex talks us through the film roles of the actors who've played the Doctor. First up, William Hartnell and Jon Pertwee...

We know them best as the twelve very different incarnations of the Doctor. But all the actors who've been the star of Doctor Who, being such good all-rounders in the first place, have also had film careers. Admittedly, some CVs are more impressive than others, but this retrospective attempts to pick out some of the many worthwhile films which have starred, featured or seen a fleeting cameo by the actors who would become (or had been) the Doctor.

William Hartnell was, above all else, a film star. He is by far the most prolific film actor of the main twelve to play the Time Lord. With over 70 films to his name, summarising Hartnell's film career is difficult at best. »

Big turning points in the James Bond movie franchise

20 February 2014 4:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Michael Reed 21 Feb 2014 - 05:56

We take a look at some potential turning points that could have altered the Bond legacy significantly...

007 lists resurrection amongst his hobbies, but speculation is our game today. Your own ideal fantasy James Bond film probably depends on what sort of Bond you're into. If you like serious Bond, you probably consider it a crying shame that Timothy Dalton didn't get to make at least one more film. A fair proportion of the fandom consider Never Say Never Again to be one of the worst of the series, so for them, rolling the dice on a 1976 production with a different actor and a more exciting script would have been worth it.

Furthermore, a Sony Pictures produced rival film with, say, Liam Neeson in the late 1990s could have been fascinating. How about Connery returning to the role in his 60s? All of these possibilities »

The Saint, The Champions: What was the secret of '60s cult TV?

21 January 2014 6:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The sad passing of actress Alexandra Bastedo earlier this month saw many recalling and celebrating her work on '60s spy-fi series The Champions - just one entry in the canon of cult programme makers Itc Entertainment.

Though it also branched out into film production - with the likes of 1976's The Eagle Has Landed and 1982's The Dark Crystal - Itc was best known throughout the 1960s and '70s for its raft of cult TV programming, with shows like The Champions making an indelible screen icon of Bastedo and others like her.

These shows are now world-renowned - The Saint, The Prisoner, Thunderbirds - but the team behind them still go sadly unsung.

This week, the Week in Geek is looking to redress the balance with a fond tribute to Itc Entertainment - one of the UK's very best, most influential production teams.
