Guilty Pleasure TV: Shows Critics Watch When They Should Be Working — IndieWire Survey

13 June 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is your go-to guilty pleasure viewing?

Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter

Love what you watch, watch what you love and don’t be guilty to love what you love. Life is too short to have guilty pleasures. Of course, are there things I watch that I know aren’t “quality”? Sure! Any time I watch an episode of “House Hunters” or “House Hunters International” and find myself rooting for an incompatible, self-absorbed couple with an outlandish and indefensible budget to either break up on the spot or to make a housing choice that will surely facilitate a “Money Pit-“style scenario in which their »

Sci-Fi Newbies Hope to Follow in ‘Game of Thrones’ Epic Emmy Footsteps

5 June 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s no doubt HBO’s “Game of Thrones” has been a game-changer for TV. It has delivered record ratings for its network, blazed a trail for epic fantasy on the small screen and rewritten the conventional wisdom about how genre programming fares at the Emmys, breaking the record for most wins by a scripted show at last year’s ceremony.

The success of “Thrones” has spurred just about every network to jump on the fantasy/sci-fi bandwagon in some way, and it’s no surprise that many of the series that fit the trend are high-quality offerings in their own right. But what remains an open question is to what degree the TV Academy will embrace this year’s crop of freshman genre contenders.

Two presumed heavyweights had a jump start on awards season: Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and HBO’s “Westworld” premiered in 2016, making them eligible for various guild awards and the Golden Globes, at »

The Quantum Leap Intro Just Because I Want a Reboot

31 March 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

You want a show that deserves a reboot?  If there’s any show in the world that could easily have a reboot it’s Quantum Leap.  You’ve got science.  You’ve got time travel.  You’ve got saving the world.  You got a guy who just wants to get home.  This has CW or Fox written all over it.  Then again, imagine this on HBO with tons of violence and nudity.  Can you even imagine how awesome this show could be in the modern day?  Don’t get me wrong, Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell completely rocked but there’s gotta be a writer out there

John Ostrander: My Secret Origin Story

26 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Tomorrow I’m supposed to have what is called a nuclear stress test – checking on the old ticker – during which they introduce a nuclear particle into my blood stream and then will track it. According to comic book physics, this should result in my gaining a super-power or two. So I’ve been considering what power(s) I might get or want.

There’s a spectrum of possibilities. Spider-Man got his powers through radioactivity, as did the Hulk. The Fantastic Four got their powers through a form of radiation. In the back of my mind, I wonder if the radioactive particle might activate some recessive mutant gene or possibly Terrigen mists like the Inhumans to which I may have been unwittingly exposed.

Daredevil got hit by a truck and some radioactive isotope/bar clonked him on the head which obviously gave him his radar sense. The Atom got his powers from White Dwarf Star radiation. »

Quantum Leap: 10 greatest guest performances

5 March 2017 5:36 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Juliette Harrisson Mar 24, 2017

Remember this lot popping up in Quantum Leap? They're our pick of the best guest performances in the time travel show...

Once again, we’re celebrating great guest performances in one of our favourite shows. We’re defining a guest appearance as an actor who plays a particular character no more than twice over the run of the show. There’s a bit more competition for the list for this show than most – since Quantum Leap only had two regular cast members and nearly every other actor on the show appeared only once!

Travelers: why you should watch Netflix's new time travel show

17 January 2017 8:50 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Oakley Jan 18, 2017

Canadian sci-fi series Travelers presents a genuinely fresh and fascinating vision of time travel, and boasts a strong cast...

Warning: contains some episode one plot details.

See related  Power Rangers, boob armour, and impractical costumes

Television’s love affair with time travel goes back a long way. Naturally, Doctor Who was one of the early proponents of the genre and since then there have been many successful (and many less so) series bringing time travel to the small screen. Quantum Leap mixed science with humour, drama and humanity, Continuum brought some genuinely intelligent ideas and Legends Of Tomorrow has thrown a whole lot of heroes into a mainstream tale of time travel and derring-do.  

Over the past twelve months, time travel has been something of a go-to for TV schedules with Timeless, Frequency and mini-series 11.22.63 all coming up with something fresh to say. One show that seems »

‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Review: Razor Sharp Season 12 Premiere is Just the Start of a Bold, Brilliant Year

4 January 2017 7:30 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Don’t call it a comeback.

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” hasn’t seen a consistent dip in quality for longer than we can remember, but every season, it feels as though the TV world takes Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank (Danny DeVito) a little bit for granted. Perhaps because it comes out at the beginning of the year, seven months before the Emmy nominations hit and a good 11 months prior to the “best of the year” lists. Or maybe it’s just because it’s been on so long that people want to believe they know what’s coming. That they “get it.”

Yet the gang is as eager to disprove the notion as they are proud to embrace the purity of their characters’ perturbed nature. Like the goofy baby brother eager to join the big kids table, “Sunny »
