‘BoJack Horseman’ Season 3 Premiere: Can ‘Bad’ TV Be Better Than Oscar Movies?

22 July 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 is a feat of storytelling on both a serialized and episodic level. To honor the impressive accomplishment, IndieWire will be reviewing all 12 episodes over the next few weeks. Below, we delve into Episode 1.]

Read More: ‘BoJack Horseman’ Review: Season 3 Deserves an Oscar (And Every Other Award)

Is “Horsin’ Around” Better Than “Secretariat,” and Is TV Better Than Film?

The most important takeaway from the premiere of “BoJack Horseman” is that BoJack already knows an Oscar may not make him happy. This could’ve been a realization made much later in the season, but creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg wastes no time in Season 3. He’s got big fish to fry, and each episode takes on far more than just the requisite plot developments. By putting BoJack’s motivation into question already — for an arc that will still last all season — Bob-Waksberg shifts the conversation to a bigger topic for this half hour: Should BoJack be prouder of “Horsin’ Around” than “Secretariat”?

Clearly, the answer is, “yes.” Considering BoJack wasn’t actually in his Oscar vehicle (he was digitally replaced) and he became a star from “Horsin’ Around, »

‘Back to the Future’: See Vintage Behind-the-Scenes Footage From the Blockbuster Trilogy’s 1990 Documentary

17 July 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If you’ve ever had questions about “Back to the Future,” Kirk Cameron has answers. The actor hosts “The Secrets of the Back to the Future Trilogy,” a behind-the-scenes featurette from 1990 in which the “Growing Pains” star explains the inner workings of Robert Zemeckis’ time-travel franchise.

Cameron, whose more recent work is a bit, um, different, reads letters from fans with a burning desire to know more about the beloved trilogy. The first of these asks whether hoverboards are real and, if not, when they will be; if only time travel itself were real and the concerned fan could visit 2016 to see that hoverboards now kind of sort of are but mostly just catch on fire and hurt people. Cameron uses the question as a segue into the special-effects work that went into the device, »

Baywatch Almost Derailed Leonardo DiCaprio's Movie Career

1 July 2016 2:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Next year, the iconic TV series Baywatch makes the transition to the big screen with a new reboot starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. The original series is among the most successful of all time, running for 11 seasons between 1989 and 2001, turning stars Pamela Anderson and the rest of the cast into household names. A new retrospective on the original series reveals quite an interesting revelation, that Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio was almost cast on the show when he was just a teenager.

Before he went on to make Oscar winning blockbusters, Leonardo DiCaprio's career began on the small screen, with roles on the 1990 TV series Parenthood and a recurring arc on Growing Pains. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that, at just 15 years of age, the actor auditioned for the role of Mitch Buchannon's (David Hasselhoff) son, Hobie Buchannon, but David Hasselhoff himself "nixed" the casting. Baywatch's original producer Michael Berk »

We Know What Growing Pains' Kirk Cameron Believes, but Do You Ever Wonder What Other '80s Idols Think About Religion & Politics?

2 May 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Oh, Mike Seaver. You used to be so adorable when you spoke. Kirk Cameron's still got the dimples that won him many a fan back in the 1980s when he played the troublemaker of the Seaver clan on the classic sitcom Growing Pains, but some of the values he's been espousing in more recent years have people scratching their heads, as they wonder when the teen heartthrob became ultra-conservative. (News flash, he's probably always harbored certain views, there was just no way back in the '80s and 1990s to disseminate them at the drop of a hat.) His latest controversial comment to receive an understandably infuriated reception on social media: He told the Christian Post recently, "Wives are to »

Marc Alan Fishman’s Top 10 Batman Cartoons of All Time*

19 March 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As we near the debut of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Sepia Tones my mind races towards those pure gems of the Dark Knight that already exist in the ether of Animatia. Animatia is, of course, the fictitious country where all cartoons come from. Paul Dini is the dictator there – as he should be – and he rules with a dynamically drawn fist. And here, on this wonderful island, sit the tomes that built a generation of Bat-fans. Some (me) would say these tomes were truly the best generation of adaptations and explorations of Batman. I’d like to pontificate, ruminate, and extrapolate to you those episodes of Batman: The Animated Series (and The New Batman Adventures) that truly defined a cartoon legacy.

1 and 2. Two-Face (Parts 1 and 2)

Of all the designs Bruce Timm would bring to light for the Dark Night, it was Two-Face who took the prize in my mind for the most striking. »

Kirk Cameron Couldn't Care Less That Some in Hollywood Despise His Conservative Values

18 March 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Kirk Cameron was a teen phenom while playing Mike Seaver on Growing Pains, the ABC sitcom that ran from 1985 to 1992 and was where he met his future wife, Chelsea Noble (she played his girlfriend in the late seasons). Nowadays, Cameron is an evangelical Christian focusing on faith-based projects, and he didn’t make many friends in progressive Hollywood when he spoke against same-sex marriage during an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN four years ago. The father of six just signed on as host for 30 episodes of The National Bible Bee Game Show from Enthuse Entertainment

Fuller House Review – Back To The Tanner Well?

11 March 2016 11:03 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

It’s been 20 years since the Tanners were on television, and Netflix‘ Fuller House is an effort that had a lot of people wondering if the world really wanted to revisit the family. The theory of the show has a lot going for it, but audiences need to see things through a very specific lens.

In a world with more sequels, reboots, and reimaginings than it needs, and with the popularity (or at least Roi) of several film trips to the 80s, it just isn’t that strange to take another ride with a popular show.

That said, it can’t go unmentioned that Fuller House isn’t a good show. It just isn’t. But, it isn’t a terrible show either, and you’ve got to remember that it isn’t a look back to a good show, so you need to accurately set your bar.

Full House wasn’t a good show, »
