My Secret “Albert Pujols Was on Steroids The Whole Time” Conspiracy Theory

15 October 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s kind of sad state of events really since professional baseball used to be something that would never once be questioned when it came to the performance of its players, but one era managed to screw all that up. Unfortunately for Albert Pujols it’s an era he happened to belong to. The use of steroids in the Mlb became a very serious problem at this point and thanks to the proliferation of PEDs in the sport everyone that did well was under close scrutiny for a long time. This didn’t mean that everyone was guilty, it simply meant that they

Actor Scott Baio found himself apologizing for a tweet he made last week after retweeting a meme highlighting a popular conspiracy theory amongst members of the alt-right. The meme, shared to Baio’s 220,000 followers, showed an image of Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman killed by a neo-Nazi supporter in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier […]

Why ‘The Leftovers,’ ‘Transparent,’ and ‘BoJack Horseman’ Missed Out on Major Emmys

24 July 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Not every TV show can get the Emmy nominations they deserve. That’s been a fact of life since the awards ceremony began 68 years ago, and it’s only intensified in the new golden age of television.

But the 2017 Emmy nominations unveiled a few major shocks we have yet to shake. Namely, why did “The Leftovers,” “Transparent,” and “BoJack Horseman” all miss out on major nominations?

The Leftovers” earned one Emmy nod, for Ann Dowd as Guest Actress. “BoJack Horseman” landed one, as well, for Kristen Schaal’s voice acting. And “Transparent” did very well in total nominations — landing seven, including three acting nods — but missed out on Outstanding Comedy Series for the first time in its three seasons of eligibility.

All this came after massive Fyc campaigns, sterling reviews, and enthusiastic support from fans. Heading into the nominations, »

The Best Summer Television Shows of the 21st Century, Ranked

26 June 2017 8:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the not-so-good old days, summer used to be a break for more than just students. It was time off from great TV, as broadcast networks aired reruns, sports, and reality competitions while they assumed people were outside having fun. But since the new golden age began, all these TV shows have had to fit in somewhere, and many networks chose to run them during the less competitive summer months.

That’s led to a boon of TV’s best shows popping up when no series dared debut before. So, to honor the latest summer sensation — Netflix’s “Glow” — we’ve gathered the elite qualifiers below and ranked the seasons by overall quality, summer spirit, and re-watchability. To be eligible, seasons needed to be released in the months between June 1 and August 31 during the 21st century. After all, there’s plenty of new options to consider, but sometimes you want »

A “Willy Wonka” Conspiracy Theory That Trumps Any Other Conspiracy Theory Ever

11 May 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will forever remain as one of my favorite movies and books of all-time.   Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka is easily one of the best characters ever portrayed on the big screen and anyone who tells you different hasn’t seen the movie.  While the movie is great and on the surface seems like its for kids, we all know just how insane this movie really is.  Wonka himself is a lunatic and the movie doesn’t even remotely hide this fact. However, today I read a theory about the film that blew my mind.  If you

The Most Disappointing Year in Movies

25 April 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In 1997, a film cynic was born.

Seeing Star Wars ruined should have been a sign that 1997 would be the worst year ever for blockbusters. George Lucas’s Special Editions, intended to “improve” the original trilogy but mostly doing the opposite, started arriving in January. By the time of the release of the new version of Return of the Jedi in March, my anticipation for anything ought to have been demolished. But I couldn’t have imagined that was only the beginning.

Actually, the first steps towards the end of an era were made in the early ’90s. That just wasn’t a great time for big movies compared to the prior decade. Some of my biggest letdowns of all time included Hudson Hawk in 1991 and Death Becomes Her in 1992. Jurassic Park wasn’t good enough for me, having read the book. Independence Day put me to sleep in the theater. Beloved »

‘Shazaam’ Is Real: College Humor ‘Finds’ Long-Lost Sinbad Genie Movie That Doesn’t Actually Exist

2 April 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If you thought the “Shazaam” phenomenon was over, what with the fleeting nature of the never-ending meme cycle, then you may have mixed feelings about an April Fool’s video released by College Humor yesterday. Presented as two minutes of found footage from the film in question — a nonexistent and vaguely racist conflation of “Kazaam,” in which Shaq plays a genie, and Sinbad’s ’90s oeuvre — the video asserts that “Shazaam” does in fact exist.

Complete with a faux tracking effect and snippets of a cereal commercial, the video finds two kiddos rifling through boxes in their garage when they happen upon a lamp that’s sure to raise alarm bells in anyone who obsessively watched “Aladdin” as a child. Out pops the eponymous wish-granter, played by the star of “Houseguest” and “First Kid” himself, »

Watch James Corden's Musical Spoof Starring Trump, Spicer, Conway, Bannon

21 March 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

James Corden imagined the horrific ambitions of President Donald Trump and his administration in a parody of Matilda's "When I Grow Up" on The Late Late Show Monday. The performance featured Matilda composer Tim Minchin as Trump, Broadway star Ben Platt as Sean Spicer, actress Abigail Spencer as Kellyanne Conway and Corden as Steve Bannon.

The bit found the four performers rocking back and forth on swings, singing about telling lies, taking away health insurance and denying climate change. "When I grow up," Corden sang as Bannon, "I will »

‘The Mandela Effect’ Set for Big Screen Treatment, David Guy Levy Tapped to Direct Psychological Sci-Fi Thriller — Exclusive

16 February 2017 11:27 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This isn’t fake news. Periscope Entertainment has announced today that David Guy Levy will direct their upcoming psychological sci-fi thriller “The Mandela Effect,” which is written by Steffen Schlachtenhaufen. The film “a man who becomes obsessed with facts and events that have been collectively misremembered by thousands of people. Believing the phenomena to be the symptom of something much larger, his obsession eventually leads him to question reality itself.”

The title refers to the strange phenomena of mass groups of people collectively “remembering” events or things that never happened. The theory pulls its name from the bizarre case of many people believing that Nelson Mandela died in prison — going so far as to “recall” clips from a televised funeral — though the civil rights leader actually died in 2013. Other examples of the so-called effect include misquoted movie lines (“Luke, I am your father” is a biggie, so is ““Life is like a box of chocolates, »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 12 Review: Hot Potato Soup

31 January 2017 9:53 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

There are guest stars, and then there is Patton Oswalt. And then, there is Patton Oswalt. And more Patton Oswalt

On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 12, Oswalt's Agent Koenig was back. As was Agent Koenig. And Agent Koenig. And – surprise! – Agent Koenig's sassy sister, L.T., otherwise known as "the original Koenig."  Didn't see that one coming, did you?

Considering that "android" was always the most obvious explanation as for why there appeared to be an army of Agent Koenigs (clones being the other option regularly debated by fans), it was inevitable that Koenig and Kompany would resurface during the Lmd storyline. 

The opening scene, featuring Oswalt quoting iconic lines from Back to the Future and Star Wars while wheeling around an arcade on a hoverboard, was an ideal way to be reintroduced to the character, who always brings a welcome dose of levity to S.H.I.E.L. »

1 January 2017 11:05 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here at Et, we love an anniversary -- whether it’s the 20th anniversary of Scream or Clueless, 10 years in the life of The Hills or the magical time making No Doubt’s Magic Kingdom 20 years later. And as we settle in 2017, it’s time to look ahead at all those upcoming moments that will have you saying, “I remember when…”

Here’s a brief look at our favorite TV and film milestones of 2017:

Jan. 25, 2002: A Walk to Remember (15 Years)

While fans are crying over Mandy Moore’s Golden Globe-nominated performance on NBC’s hit new series This Is Us, it was just 15 years ago that they cried over her performance in the weepy adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ book about a girl with cancer who falls in love with a rebellious classmate.

Let’s not also forget that 2002 gave us Naomie Harris in 28 Days Later, Barbershop, Ryan Gosling in Murder by Numbers, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, [link »
