Patrick Hughes’ The Hitman’s Bodyguard is, in its simplest form, everything you’d expect from an August release. What does that mean? Well, you can count on an asinine story, distracting action, and wafer-thin plot devices that shouldn’t – in Any world – be met with positive outcomes. Tom O’Connor’s script is a two-hour excuse to send Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson on a violent road trip, plus a few extra scenes where Salma Hayek screams bilingual insults like a Barrio banshee. That’s about it. Unnecessarily overlong like so many films before, but there’s a reason why intentions are so simple – because, against all odds, Hughes succeeds where others have failed. Don’t ask me how (but I’ll tell ya anyway).
It all starts with Belarusian dictator Vladislav Dukhovich (Gary Oldman). Interpol wants to put this murderous tyrant away for good, but their trial witnesses keep getting murdered. »

In the animated series category, there is little suspense year-to-year over which shows will get nominated since there are four key shows — led by “The Simpsons,” with 26 nominations and 10 wins over 28 seasons — that have been honored for the bulk of their runs. The real question is which one will win, so picking the right episode for Emmy submission is key. “I have a highly scientific system,” jokes longtime “Simpsons” showrunner Al Jean. “I usually go with the highest-rated episode on IMDb.” This year Jean will put his system to the test against returnees “Archer,” “Bob’s Burgers” and “South Park,” and the newcomer: “Elena of Avalor”/“Sofia the First” crossover episode, “Elena and the Secret of Avalor.”

Now its Legends of Chamberlain Heights TV show is back for a second season. Will it be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. An animated adult sitcom from creators Brad Ableson, Mike Clements, Quinn Hawking, Josiah Johnson and Michael Starrbury, Legends of Chamberlain Heights follows three high school basketball players. Jamal (Hawking), Grover (Johnson), and Milk (Starrbury), are really just benchwarmers. Together, these three friends experience life’s highs and lows. Comedy Central says, “Failure doesn’t faze them since they’re legends -- even if it’s just in their own minds.” The voice cast also includes: Jay Pharoah, Tiffany Haddish, Jamie Kennedy, Poochie Jackson, Carl Jones, Elise Marie Dubois, and Lavell Crawford.

It’s been 20 years since TV was changed forever by four boys and their Ma-tv language in a quiiiiiet mounnnntain townnnn. While indulging in a few member berries, Et is looking back at South Park and the day creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone started satirizing everything we hold dear on August 13, 1997.
Immediately following the animated series’ Comedy Central debut, Et sat down with Parker and Stone to discuss the real South Park, the Colorado town in which the show takes place, what made their TV debut nerve-wracking and how they ended up at the premiere of Batman & Robin.
“[South Park] is actually an area right in the middle of the Rocky Mountains and it's strange, because it's almost a perfectly circular valley,” Parker said, with Stone adding: “South Park is like if you were flying a UFO over Colorado, you would want to land in South Park. It looks like a nice place to land.”

South Park has been around for ages, though there's still plenty to learn about the cartoon that's based around four kids from a small Colorado town. »

I wasn't a big fan of King of the Hill at first. When compared to the faster paced humour of The Simpsons, South Park, or even Family Guy, it didn't seem nearly as exciting, but it was never meant to be, and as the years went on and my appreciation for the series grew and grew, I came to realize that creators Mike Judge (Silicon Valley) and Greg Daniels (Parks and Recreation) had achieved...

Thanks in part to generous support from its local government, Australia has emerged as a web series hotbed. One of the funniest shows to emerge from Down Under in 2017 has been Fighting Isis, in which a group of stereotypical, loud-mouthed Australians hatch a plan to take down the world's most vile terrorist organization.
Fighting Isis, created by Seb Peart, Mark Nicholson, and Peter Corrigan, is the story of four friends -- or "mates," as the locals would say -- who are convinced by their ringleader Gav to travel to Afghanistan (where all the terrorists are from, of course) in order to find and defeat Isis. The plan they cook up is ill-conceived and lands them in jail by the second episode, but led mostly by sheer bluster, they do everything in their power to continue their quest. The show, it should be said, contains Nsfw language. This is Australia, after »

I understand the reservations about the rising popularity of Let's Plays and Let's Players on the internet (I mean, there was even a whole South Park episode dedicated to it). I mean, why would I want to watch somebody else play games? Well, as someone who isn't very good at games, but appreciates them as forms of art, it's nice to see them played so that I can appreciate what the... Read More »

Donald Trump has been trying very hard to do a lot to this nation, thus far with pathetically little success. However, while he might not be making America great, he’s most certainly been making American comedy fantastic.
Take Stephen Colbert. After he took over The Late Show, he has been losing badly to The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon. Then the Manchild from Hell won the election – thanks to a little help from his friends – and that very evening Colbert had something of a nervous breakdown, live on CBS. To his vast credit, he put all that energy into his job: making jokes at the expense of our Megalomaniac-In-Chief. Now, six months later, he’s leaped over Fallon in the ratings.
Certainly, there’s no shortage of material. Indeed, many other comics have made similar journeys on the Trump Turnpike (“what will that asshole think of next?”). Seth Myers, »

The competition ramped up among broadcast, cable and streaming networks. for Emmy bragging rights. *This list reflects networks that received more than five nominations.)
Despite being down two nominations from last year, the cabler pulled out a respectable number in this year’s Emmy race, led by the Down syndrome docuseries “Born This Way,” which received six noms, doubling its impact from last year’s debut in the Emmy race. “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” landed two noms, with “Intervention” and “L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later” filling in the list with one each.
If you count the accolades for its digital platform ABCd — and the Academy does — then the Alphabet network is actually up slightly from last year’s total of 35. The strongest showing is from reality giant “Dancing With the Stars”: Despite not getting recognized in the overall reality competition series category, it »

It’s kind of hard to believe it’s been 21 seasons thus far. A lot of people didn’t think this show would last past its first few seasons, and now look at it. South Park became a globally-known commodity and then faded out, and then came back, and then faded out again. Now those of us that remember the show actually taking off are still surprised to see it around. We’ve seen a South Park movie and we’ve even seen the two creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, create their own movie, Baseketball, in which you actually hear a number of

What are the best animated series ever produced? It’s something I’m going to explore in my next column. Animation is such an exciting medium with so much untapped potential. Probably because it wasn’t taken seriously for so many years, written off as a form of storytelling for children. Even after Walt Disney revolutionized the genre in cinemas, the stories were still relegated to simple fairy tales that could be appreciated by ages eight to eighty-eight.
Animation on television took a similar route with the vast majority of animated series appearing on Saturday mornings or as holiday specials. There were brief flirtations with prime-time animation during television’s golden age, but it wasn’t until the tail end of the 20th century that American networks began experimenting with the idea of an animated series aimed at a post-pubescent viewing audience.

Showtime’s President and CEO David Nevins has announced that the cable network has placed a ten-episode order for an as-yet-untitled animated comedy series from Stephen Colbert, which revolves around President Donald Trump, his family and administration.
As per Showtime’s announcement, “the fresh, cutting-edge comedy will present the truish adventures of Trump’s confidants and bon vivants – family, top associates, heads of government, golf pros and anyone else straying into his orbit – intrepidly exploring their histories and their psyches, revealing insights into what makes them so definitively Trumpian. It’s a workplace comedy where the office happens to be oval; it’s a character study in search of character, as seen through the eyes of an imaginary documentary crew.”
“I know a lot of people wanted to do this, and I’m honored that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world,” said Colbert. “I’ve seen some of the footage, »
