Silicon Valley box set review: ‘This may truly be the satire for our times’

14 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Mike Judge’s subtle sitcom about a likable geek who leaves Google-like Hooli to code it alone reflects – and comically distorts – the hermetically sealed cult of tech

Mike Judge, the sly cultural observer who skewered a generation with Beavis and Butt-head and made a smalltown Texas conservative sympathetic in the long-running King of the Hill, has struggled to match his cartoon peaks in the live-action arena (although his flavourings-factory comedy film, Extract, was better than it sounds). But the startup-themed Silicon Valley, his first flesh-and-blood sitcom for HBO, is easily his warmest and subtlest work. It’s already into its 10-episode second season on Sky; here are the first eight.

A show that toggles between revenge-of-the-nerds soap opera and knife-sharp spoof, Silicon Valley’s unlikely hero is Richard, played by the goofily nasal Thomas Middleditch. He’s an accidental genius who quits an insufferable Google-type company called Hooli, where he »

Jason Bateman and Ginnifer Goodwin ready to bring Disney's 'Zootopia' to life

6 May 2015 6:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Within the next two weeks Pixar will officially debut its latest animated feature, "Inside Out," at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.  It's the Disney division's first new movie since "Monster's University" which hit theaters almost two years ago.  Pixar will make up for the long absence by also releasing a second picture, "The Good Dinosaur," in November.  While Pixar steps back into the spotlight its sister division, Walt Disney Animation Studios, is taking 2015 off after an incredible run of back to back animated Oscar winners, "Frozen" and "Big Hero 6."  Walt Disney Animation Studio's next film is "Zootopia" which doesn't hit theaters until March, 2016.  Today, they finally revealed who will be voicing the move's main characters. According to Disney, "Zootopia" is set in a "modern mammal Metropolis" (sounds like an animal version of "Monster's Inc.") and will keep it in the corporate family with "Once Upon A Time's" Ginnifer Goodwin voicing  bunny Judy Hopps, »

Review: 'Louie' - 'Bobby's Place': I am woman?

30 April 2015 8:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Louie" coming up just as soon as my mascara is running... What a tumultuous relationship "Louie" — both character and show — can have with women. There are times when Louie is the biggest clod in the world and deserving of every last bit of grief he gets from perfectly nice and sane women, and then there are other times where he winds up suffering abundant humiliation — or worse — simply because he crossed paths with the wrong pile of crazy at the wrong moment. "Bobby's Place" is all about the latter encounter, combining a bunch of past Louie mortifications into one sharknado-sized nightmare whose only benefit is providing a reason for Louie's brother to feel better about his life at the episode's end than he did at its beginning. We've seen a woman (no less than Oscar Winner Melissa Leo) force herself sexually on Louie. We've seen a woman (Rip, »

Louie, Ep. 5.04: “Bobby’s House” eschews emasculation in search of deeper truth

30 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Louie, Season 5, Episode 4: “Bobby’s House”

Written by Louis C.K.

Directed by Louis C.K.

Airs Thursdays at 10:30pm Et on FX

Remember Louie’s declaration of love to Pamela from season two? Go ahead, watch it again:

Following the possible shifting of their arrangement in “A La Carte,” “Bobby’s House” marks yet another turning point in the Louie/Pamela relationship, one that may or may not have lasting consequences. Whatever lies in store for their future as a couple, though, what’s clear is that Pamela has finally done what Louie did three seasons back: she took Louie by the hand and brought him to a deeply personal place.

Before we get to that, a few words on the first segment of the episode.The last three episodes have all followed a similar structural pattern: a shorter, seemingly less consequential segment, followed by a “meatier” principal segment, »

"Gears of War" Remake Hits Xbox One

25 April 2015 4:50 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A remake of the first game in the "Gears of War" series will soon be making its debut on Xbox One.

Polygon announced the news, saying the game will have upgraded lighting and textures and run at 60Fps. The cinematics will also be remade by animation studio Plastic Wax.

Black Tusk Studios, who is in charge of the series going forward, may not be involved in the project as the remaster is being done by "Brink" and "Batman: Arkham Origins" multiplayer developer Splash Damage.

This might explain comments from Black Tusk Studios general manager Rod Fergusson last month when he scuttled rumors of the series getting a "Halo: Master Chief Collection" style boxset remaster. The quotes he made were very specifically about a potential 'Marcus Fenix Collection', not an individual game from the series undergoing a remake.

Kotaku have also been in touch with several gamers who claim they've been »

Upfronts: Nat Geo Will Revive ‘Explorer,’ Test Comedy

15 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Explorers for the adventure-and-science organization National Geographic have long traveled to new places. Now the cable network that is aligned with the 127-year old society wants to do more of the same.

The National Geographic Channel, owned in tandem with 21st Century Fox, said it would test a comedic series in 2016 while rebooting its signature “Explorer” program by returning it to the schedule for the first time in five years, all as part of the network’s efforts in the upfront, the annual process through which U.S. TV outlets try to sell the bulk of their ad inventory.

Speaking at a lunch held Wednesday, Nat Geo CEO Courteney Monroe said the network wanted to place more emphasis on its affiliation with the nonprofit educational institution while trying bolder programming concepts that may push the boundaries of the organization’s signature yellow rectangle.

One of the more eyebrow-raising concepts introduced was a comedic miniseries, »

The 22 Coolest TV Nerds: An Evolutionary History

14 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It seems quaint that there was a 1984 movie called "Revenge of the Nerds." Thirty-one years later, it's clear that the nerds have won. They dominate movies and TV with their superhero and sci-fi sagas. They've made Comic-Con the central pop cultural event of the year. They got us all to care about Jedi knights and hobbits and Lannisters. They built the hardware and the software that you're using to read this article.

And they've even made that process entertaining in the HBO comedy series "Silicon Valley," which returned for its second season on April 12. Created by "King of the Hill"'s Mike Judge, the live-action show follows a group of entrepreneurial coders in the cutthroat land of Google as they join the digital gold rush and try to invent the next killer app. In just one season, Richard, Erich, Dinesh, Bertram, and Jared have become some of our favorite nerds on TV. »

Deadline reports that FX is teaming up with Sean “Diddy” Combs and his production company Revolt to produce the animated comedy Brightmoor. Written by Detroit comedian Cp and former King of the Hill writer Chip Hall, the show is described as a "black South Park" that takes place in inner-city Detroit and focuses on the young African-American students of Brightmoor Elementary. FX is looking for its next animated hit after Archer, and if the success of TeRio is any indication, inner-city elementary-school children might be the way to go. »
