‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Boss Promises You Will Never Expect Where Season 9 Ends Up

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Boss Promises You Will Never Expect Where Season 9 Ends Up
After two episodes, the long-awaited ninth season of Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is finally start to shape its ultimate narrative. Little dignities, big hijinks, and Palestinian chicken aside, the HBO series lives and dies by the strength of its overall arc, a backbone that’s helped deliver such classic storylines as “that time Larry did Broadway” and “hey, Richard Lewis is dying.” This year, it’s all about the fatwa. And the “Fatwa!”

“Once we landed on the arc for the season, once we realized that we were going to do him writing a musical called ‘Fatwa!’ and then getting a fatwa for writing ‘Fatwa!,’ I saw where that should take the season,” producer and directer Jeff Schaffer recently told IndieWire.

‘Big Mouth’ Cast and Creators on How the Very Adult Netflix Show Can Really Help Kids
Being 13 is difficult. It can be a scary, emotional, lonely time in a young person’s life. Depending on when you grew up, being 13 meant different things: Most millennials have the cringeworthy evidence of braces and Aeropostale fits in an overflowing Facebook album from 2009. Others didn’t have social media’s living reminders, like “Big Mouth” star Andrew Rannells.

“I would’ve made so many stupid videos and taken so many stupid pictures,” he said to IndieWire.

But no matter how private or public your adolescence was, the creators of “Big Mouth” want viewers to know that we’ve all been there — yes, every one of us. To the girls who first got their period on a class trip, you are not alone. To the kids going through trials with acne, bacne, and buttne, you are not alone. Everyone gets curb-stomped by puberty, and “Big Mouth” wants to help.

‘The Babysitter’: Watch the First Trailer for Netflix’s Bloody New Horror-Comedy Film by McG

‘The Babysitter’: Watch the First Trailer for Netflix’s Bloody New Horror-Comedy Film by McG
A satanic cult meets spin-the-bottle in the trailer for Netflix’s “The Babysitter,” directed by McG (“Charlie’s Angels”) and starring Samara Weaving and Bella Thorne. The high-school comedy-horror film revolves around a sweet 12-year old boy (Judah Lewis) in love with his babysitter (Thorne). When Cole stays up to spy on Allison and her friends playing a hot-and-heavy game of spin-the-bottle, things take a violent turn.

It’s the first movie directed by McG since “3 Days to Kill” in 2014, as the “Charlie’s Angels” director has been more focused on his career as a TV producer (“Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments” and “Lethal Weapon”). According to Variety, “The Babysitter” was financed by McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision. After production, the film was acquired by Netflix from Newline for big money in the high-seven to low-eight-dollar range.

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in October 2017

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in October 2017
For movie lovers, October is the gloriously ghoulish time of year when we celebrate one kind of film above all others. That’s right: Biting comedies about dysfunctional New York Jews who finally decide to air their grievances after decades of resentment! Um… well, maybe Netflix didn’t get the memo. It’s not as though the streaming service isn’t scaring up some choice horror titles in time for Halloween (don’t miss “Raw” or “The Cult of Chucky”), but most of the month’s big new additions aren’t exactly in season.

Case in point: The splashiest arrival is a Noah Baumbach film, and it’s safe to say that “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” is considerably less frightening than any of the Adam Sandler comedies that Netflix has brought to you before. On the other hand, it’s true that movies can terrify you in a

Bull Season 1 Episode 17 Review: Name Game

  • TVfanatic
It was all about taking the big gamble on Bull Season 1 Episode 17.

And knowing who you could trust.

Unfortunately, trust was in short supply everywhere, including amongst the members of Tac, and I’m still trying to understand why.

Bull: Why would you trust a stranger with your entire life savings?

Erin: He wasn't a stranger. He worked at my bank.

Permalink: He wasn't a stranger. He worked at my bank. Added: March 28, 2017

Most people aren't expecting to get scammed by their bank, but these days it's difficult to trust even the institutions we think are solid.

So, I felt for all the people who ended up on the "sucker" list. I found it particularly stomach-turning to know that they targeted people who were about to retire.

There's nothing like working your entire life to build a nest egg only to have a predator steal it out from under you.

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1989

From a crazy early Nic Cage role to a lesser-known film starring Robert De Niro, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1989...

Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.

Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.

From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

Scandal, Ep. 4.06, “An Innocent Man” spotlights the show’s women

Scandal, Season 4, Episode 6, “An Innocent Man

Written by Zahir McGhee

Directed by Jeannot Szwarc

Airs Thursdays at 9pm Est on ABC

On this week’s Scandal, Olivia visits Jake, a former first lady charms Mellie, Abby discovers Cyrus’s secret, and Fitz grants Olivia a favor.

Despite the title, “An Innocent Man” isn’t about the men of Scandal, it’s about the women. Mellie, Olivia, Abby, and even Quinn all have significant wins, making the episode a nice departure from the past five. Also, it’s the first time any of the women have felt like their old selves in a long while, particularly Olivia, who hasn’t been fully herself since the arrival of her father to D.C.

Remember back to season one, when the gladiators (also, how long has it been since any of Olivia’s team referred to themselves as such?) insisted Pope and Associates a no-cry zone?

Scandal Recap: “An Innocent Man”

Scandal's "An Innocent Man" focused on trust, and how easily the truth can be manipulated. Olivia isn't sure who to trust, but at least she knows better than to trust her father (something Fitz still can't seem to figure out). Everything else is put on hold, though, while the Fitz-Olivia-Jake love triangle gets sorted out. As Abby puts it, "I'm not asking the Commander In Chief, I'm asking the married man who used to sleep with my friend what you did with the man she is currently sleeping with." Hit the jump to find out. In lieu of a regular recap: [An opening montage shows Olivia fantasizing about a very sexy Jake, and a very predatory-looking Fitz. Have you seen Twin Peaks? Fitz is basically Bob in this montage. Then the only thing scarier than Bob shows up -- Rowan. Liv wakes up screaming]. Abby: Bestie, what's wrong? Olivia: Have you see Twin Peaks? [Somewhere in a DC hotel room] Cyrus: I feel alive! Michael: That's funny, because you've been alive like, three times as long as I have. Cyrus: I'm going to buy you a phone and a house and an off-shore bank account and a pool and

Scandal Recap: Lethal Weapons

Scandal Recap: Lethal Weapons
This Thursday on ABC’s Scandal, Olivia unleashed her fixing skills on two fronts — both on behalf of accused murderers — while Mellie learned an invaluable history lesson from an unlikely teacher.

Ronald Reagan never sat in the Scandal-verse’s White House, we learned this week. Rather, the 40th Potus was named Cooper, and he has died of a stroke as the episode opens. We (and Fitz, nursing his bruised knuckles) get this news from Mellie, who’s back to looking like her usual self as she readies to plan the funeral and meet Coop’s Mrs., named Bitsy. Olivia

Watch: Ten Clips from 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

Have some time to sparec Well, I have some time for you to waste if you're interested in getting an eyeful of what Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have in store for you next weekend with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. That is, beyond an early teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight. Below are ten clips from the film -- yes, ten -- featuring the likes of Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Jamie King, Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jamie Chung, Powers Boothe, Eva Green and I'm sure others, but I didn't watch any of them... Sorry. For a small bit of context, here's the synopsis: It's one of those hot nights, dry and windless. The kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things.

'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: Caleb Punches Zack, Emily Learns Sydney's True Intentions

Emily and Spencer discovered Sydney’s relationship with Jenna and Caleb punched Zack for Hanna in Pretty Little Liars’ “March of Crimes.”

Hanna (Ashley Benzo), Spencer (Troian Bellisario) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) gather at Hanna’s after receiving an Sos text from Ali (Sasha Pieterse). She tries to defend her decision to ask Noel Kahn (Brant Daugherty) to break into the Marin house, but Spencer is not in a particularly forgiving mood. When Ali leaves to call her dad in private, Spencer tells Hanna and Emily that they need to keep Ali in check. Hanna begs Emily to let her stay with her instead of being stuck in a room with Ali, but Emily says no and leaves. On her way home, Emily stumbles upon Noel sitting in his car, listening to a recording of Ali and Shana, where she talks about things that occurred during her supposed ‘kidnapping.’

Happy Birthday, Billy Joel! What Is His Greatest Single?

Billy Joel first hit the Top 40 in 1973 with the classic “Piano Man,” and over the next 20 years would rack up 33 top 40 hits, including 13 Top Tens and 3 #1′s (“It’s Still Rock And Roll To Me,” “Tell Her About It,” “We Didn’t Start The Fire”).

Billy’s last pop album was 1993′s River Of Dreams, but he’s still made his presence known over the last two decades, primarily on the concert stage, including a series of “Face-To-Face” tours with Elton John.

Billy’s music has always been a presence in my life, and i’m sure many others. Picking his best songs is difficult, but for his 65th birthday today, I narrowed it down to my top five.

5. Movin’ Out

Year: 1977

Album: The Stranger

Chart Peak: #17

The Stranger is the biggest selling studio album of Billy’s career, and earned him music superstardom with such glossy classics as “Just The Way You Are

The Musketeers episode 5 review: The Homecoming

Review Rob Kemp 23 Feb 2014 - 22:00

Has The Musketeers bitten off more than it can chew with its latest raft of social issues? Here's Rob's review of episode 5...

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 The Homecoming

Post the BAFTA-inflicted break, it was back to business with The Musketeers in their latest offering, The Homecoming, written by show runner Adrian Hodges and directed by Richard Clark (who directed the excellent Doctor Who episode, The Doctor’s Wife and previous Musketeers episode, The Good Soldier). Already at its mid-season point, the show has done well to inject some flair and freshness into an old tale by taking stylistic risks whilst remaining respectful to its source. The Homecoming should therefore present little risk, especially with the talent behind the camera, to the established formula – indeed, with Porthos’ turn as ‘Musketeer of the Week’ it should represent an opportunity to hit a high, with Charles’ portrayal

‘The Suspect’ Review: Charged With Familiarity But Convicted of Being Pretty Good Anyway

Ji Dong-chul (Gong Yoo) is one of 20,000 North Korean defectors trying to build a new life in the South. He works as a driver but otherwise keeps to himself. It’s not that he’s shy, it’s that he’s focused on finding someone. His apartment walls are lined with maps and info, and one of his clients, the chairman of a controversial corporation, has been offering assistance in the search. When the chairman is killed, Ji not only becomes the police department’s prime suspect but also the target of the man behind the assassination. An innocent man, wrongly accused of a crime he didn’t commit, is forced on the run from both the authorities and the real bad guys. The setup of the new Korean action/thriller, The Suspect, won’t win any awards for originality, but the script offers other additions that when combined with the numerous action sequences makes for a

'Kennedy Center Honors': Billy Joel had to get new clothes for 'this kind of thing'

"Don't ask me why."

One of Billy Joel's own lyrics might answer anyone baffled that he hasn't been recognized by the Kennedy Center Honors until now. As the 40th-anniversary year of his seminal album "Piano Man" draws to a close, the singer-songwriter of numerous hits of wide-ranging styles is among those saluted for his contributions to the performing arts as CBS airs the 36th annual special Sunday, Dec. 29.

"I was surprised," six-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Joel recalls to Zap2it. "I honestly, really thought there were a lot of people who were deserving before I was going to get this ... jazz musicians, classical musicians, just other people. I've had so much fun, it's like I'm getting an award for doing something I love. Which is an award in itself."

Taped Dec. 8 in Washington, D.C., the Glenn Close-hosted event sees four
