Hulu Screens ‘Future Man’ Episode At NY Comic-Con; Eliza Coupe Dodges “Marry Or Kill” Question About Co-Stars

6 October 2017 12:18 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

A day after unveiling the first trailer for the Seth Rogen-exec produced Future Man, Hulu screened the first episode for a New York Comic-Con audience, displaying the sci-fi comedy’s tone- and time-shifting mix of raucous and raunchy laughs and video game violence brought to live-action. But don’t expect any improv, cast members Josh Hutcherson and Haley Joel Osment advised fans. With its Quantum Leap-style jumps through time, even a few words added to a scene might throw… »

‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Second Season’ DVD Review

28 August 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

After being scattered through time, the Legends of Tomorrow are saved by Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano). Now though they find themselves up against the Legion of Doom who are determined to get hold of the Spear of Destiny, which will give them the ability to change reality.

Having not seen season one of the show, I was not sure what to expect from the show. What I found is a show that is pleasantly light-hearted, although sometimes it does try a little too hard to be different from all the rest of the shows out there. Thankfully though it doesn’t take itself too seriously, unlike some other superhero shows and movies!

In an attempt to keep Legends of Tomorrow light-hearted entertainment, oftentimes the stories that lack some depth. However a lack of depth in their stories is more than made up for in characterisation, and this is what caught my attention. »

The 10 Best TV Shows of 2017 (So Far)

3 July 2017 7:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At the year’s halfway point, it makes sense to take stock of the amazing TV we’ve seen so far — because oy, what a year it’s been already. To mention house fires, Antonioni homages, magic kangaroos, horrifying dystopias and fake Shonda Rhimes dramas barely scratches the surface of beautiful weirdness we’ve witnessed so far this year. Add “The Leftovers” into the mix and there’s no denying that 2017 has been a really special time for television. Below are IndieWire’s picks for the best shows to air so far, new and returning. Come December, our minds might change about some of this. Especially given that…

Honorable Mention: “Twin Peaks” (Showtime)

We’re not even halfway through David Lynch’s revival season, and it’s already delivered some of the most memorable TV moments of the year. But despite claims the new “Twin Peaks” is somehow more than television, »

The Ultimate Summer Binge Guide: Where to Stream The Best Summer TV, Ever — IndieWire Critics Survey

27 June 2017 11:55 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 the perfect summer show? Why? (Note: This doesn’t have to be a current show)

Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall), Uproxx

When you’re picking the perfect summer show, you first have to define your terms. “The Oc” and “American Idol” debuted in the summer, but so did “The Wire” and “Mad Men.” So your definition can be wide and varied. And with most of TV history available to us with a few clicks, almost anything can become a summer binge on a boiling day when you really need to stay indoors. That said, while some of the greatest series ever aired at times while school was out, »

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!
