Netflix will help parents ring in the New Year a little early and without having to worry about tired and cranky kids who refuse to go to bed before the ball drops. The streaming video platform released a series of New Year’s Eve countdown videos that parents can turn on at any point on December 31 to convince their children the New Year has arrived.
The New Year’s Eve countdown videos feature hosts from some of Netflix’s original children’s programming titles, including Care Bears & Cousins, Inspector Gadget, Puffin Rock, and Project MC2. Families can simply search for “New Year’s Eve” in Netflix and select which countdown video they want to watch. Then parents can just tell their kids the New Year has arrived and it’s time for bed, no matter how early it is. Netflix’s New Year’s Eve countdowns are available on the »

2015 gave birth to a plethora of new smartwatches with big names like Apple, Pebble, LG, Motorola, Tag Heuer, Fossil, Samsung Sony and more entering and expanding the wearable range. There are so many to choose between now, from Android Wear to the latest Pebble timepieces, with even the Apple Watch is flying off the shelves.
Some say that wearable tech is to the smartphone what wristwatches were to the pocket watch. Of course, your smartphone holds far more information than a pocket watch ever did, yet all of which is still locked into your pocket. Cynics would believe that smartwatches are not for you to make calls with and speak into, like Inspector Gadget, but instead they provide a quick and easy way to check what notifications are on your smartphone, so you can decide whether it’s worth delving into your pocket or searching around your »

Despite the fact that Thanksgiving hasn't even arrived yet, Christmas came early — quite literally — for the Belchers last night. (The super-early episode and ensuing gap is because of Fox's scheduling quirks, according to reports, so this is likely the last of the new Belchers you'll see this holiday season.) And what better way to celebrate than with a Santa vs. Louise episode?"Nice-Capades" begins with the kids stumbling upon a man (Henry Winkler) bogarting a massage chair in one of those fun, Brookstone-esque stores. After terrorizing him like a bratty Inspector Gadget, Louise kicks him off the chair so she and her siblings can claim their much-needed physical therapy. Success! The only problem is that he's not just any man; he's the Wharf's local, white-bearded mall Santa, a realization that nearly ruins Louise after the fact: Louise, who apparently still believes in Santa, realizes she must obey the behavioral »

So that’s another week of Strictly in the bag – next week it’s the Halloween Special, so gird your loins for spooky noises, more-horrible-than-usual VTs and Craig looking very bored with the whole business. At least it’s on actual Halloween, so we only have to tolerate the daftness for one day.
Thank you all for joining in with your comment box brilliance, feel free to swing by Twitter @heidistephens and say hello. Otherwise I’ll see you back here at 6.35pm next Saturday. Have a great week! Hx
Bye bye Ainsley, you were hilarious and brilliant, and Natalie is all kinds of fabulous.
Their final dance is a bit of “You Can Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac. Ainsley is freestyling. »

The White Ninja Vine series is based on a web comic by the same title, which released strips on Cracked.com until August 2013 when the comic went on an undefined hiatus. Scheer, known for his work on shows such as FX’s The League and Hulu’s Hotwives of Las Vegas, will voice White Ninja’s titular character, who is described in a release as “intellectually restricted and, apparently, pain impervious.” White Ninja’s voice cast also includes Kathleen Barr (Ed, Edd n’ Eddy), Shannon Chan-Kent (Littlest Pet Shop, My Little Pony), Brian Drummond (Inspector Gadget, DragonBallZ), and David A. Kaye (Make Way for Noddy, X-Men Evolution).
Six Vine stars have also joined the White Ninja project as directors. »

Saban Entertainment co-founder Shuki Levy is teaming with Tori Avey and Mike Pellegrino to form Wonderfish Media as a Los Angeles-based multiplatform production company, Variety has learned exclusively.
Wonderfish, based in the mid-Wilshire area, has begun development on a pair of projects: the TV series “Tribe of the Wild,” in which five teens on an island in Puget Sound deal with extraterrestrials invading the Earth, and the animated film “Fuzzbunz,” starring aliens with hearts of gold.
Levy created “Tribe of the Wild” in 2013 as part of a first-look production deal with Relativity TV. Wonderfish gained control of the property prior to Relativity Media’s high-profile Chapter 11 filing on July 30.
“We swim ahead of the current,” Avey said of the name of the company.
Avey, creator of the cooking-lifestyle blog ToriAvey.com, has worked for Doug Wick, Lucy Fisher and Jerry Zucker and was head writer for LevyMann Entertainment and director of development for LightVision Entertainment. »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.
New Video on Demand, Rental Streaming, and Digital Only
The "Fast and Furious" team returns, and also says goodbye to star Paul Walker, in this action blockbuster. If you wait for the DVD/Blu-ray to come out on September 15, you can get all of these amazing bonus features. However, if you want to download the movie earlier, the Digital HD release date is August 25. Go for both?
Blake Lively magically manages to stay 29 for decades, which apparently isn't the ideal existence, in this romantic drama co-starring Michiel Huisman, Harrison Ford, Kathy Baker and Ellen Burstyn. The movie isn't out on Blu-ray and DVD until September 8, but it's here on Digital HD on August 25.

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »
Coming to the expanded Marvel Universe is the new title "Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur," from co-writers Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare, and artist Natacha Bustos, which pairs Jack Kirby's original creation, the red Tyrannosaurus Rex (Devil Dinosaur) with teenager Lunella Lafayette, a character described by Reeder as a "female Inspector Gadget - only this time, she also knows what she’s doing." Hoping to attract readers of all ages, the comics creators tell Entertainment Weekly: "[Editor] Mark [Paniccia] and I were talking about how whenever people come in with young kids, or even just for Mark’s own kids, we don’t have that many publications »

There comes a time to turn away from the horrors of the world and retreat underneath the soft, comforting duvet of nostalgia. That time is Friday. That metaphorical duvet is below.
Here are fifty of the best kids’ TV theme songs (spread over two pages and in arbitrary order) of the 1980s. Some, like Alan Hawkshaw’s distinctive Grange Hill intro, are unarguable classics of the era, while others, like Mike Harding's Count Duckula, only started in the late-eighties and spent the rest of their run in the next decade.
Obviously, there being only 50 on this list, we may have missed out your favourite (deliberately or otherwise). Let us know if so, but remember that links may take a while to appear in the comments thread because »

"The fate of the entire galaxy rests in the hands of our greatest, most beloved, heroes..."
Fresh on the tail of the latest casting news for Cbbc's new Danger Mouse series (Lena Headey and John Oliver are the latest to join up) comes this first-look teaser trailer of the revamped show.
The action starts following a Star Wars episode VII parody ("Penfold, we're home!"), and it's looking good. From what little we see of them, Alexander Armstrong and Kevin Eldon are great choices for the roles of Dm and Penfold, the original theme song is intact, and so, by the looks of this brief teaser, is the sense of humour.
See what you think below:
Danger Mouse comes to Cbbc in the UK and Netflix (where the original series »
While I never could have predicted this news story, I'm very glad to be passing it on - Lena Headey (Game Of Thrones' Cersei Lannister) and John Oliver (The Daily Show's hilarious co-host, formerly seen on Community) have both signed up for roles in the upcoming Danger Mouse reboot.
Lena Headey will play Us Secret Agent Jeopardy Mouse, “a super-proficient American, female version of Danger Mouse” who has been described as “the unseen star of the Us Secret Service" who completes her missions “with the minimum of fuss.”
Said Headey of the role: “I wanted to do [Danger Mouse] because it was pure nostalgia for me. I have children now and it’s just a treat to be involved in something that you loved as a kid and be able to share it. »

When Gerry Anderson saw the live-action film of Thunderbirds a decade ago, he described it as the “biggest load of crap I have ever seen in my life”. Alas, the Thunderbirds co-creator didn’t live to see ITV’s update, but I like to think he would have been kinder to its small-screen reboot.

Inspector Gadget's finest hours really lie in the cartoon series of the 1980s. The subsequent late 1990s live action movie cast Matthew Broderick and Rupert Everett, and whilst the film was a decent box office hit, the movie wasn't much cop. At all. A direct to DVD sequel then followed a few years later, which cast French Stewart in the lead role, before Disney seemed to (thankfully) lose interest.
Until now, at least. Dan Lin, one of the producers of The Lego Movie, is bringing Inspector Gadget back to the big screen, and Disney is backing the project. It'll be a live action film again, although at this stage we don't know who is writing it, who is directing it, or who is set to play Inspector Gadget. Er, so we've »
Netflix was responsible for reviving Arrested Development and The Killing, and it gave us new versions of Richie Rich and Inspector Gadget. Now it could resurrect yet another old show: Full House. The streaming service is reportedly nearing a deal for Fuller House, a continuation of the ABC comedy which ran for 8 seasons from […]

Believe it or not, Inspector Gadget is over 30 years old at this point — he first came into being as an animated show from the mid-’80s. But older doesn’t always mean wiser, and that goes double in the case of this bionic detective. In the first trailer for Netflix’s new Inspector Gadget series, he proves […]

Go-Go-Gadget reboot! Netflix has released a first-look trailer for its CG-animated revival of the classic 80s cartoon series Inspector Gadget, which is set to land on the streaming service this Friday. Check it out below…

Backed up by his niece, Penny, her dog Brain, and an arsenal of high-tech gadgetry, the lovable Gadget fights crime as only he can.
Inspector Gadget lands on Netflix on March 27th.

The first trailer has arrived for the new "Inspector Gadget" CG animated series that will hit Netflix on Friday this week. All twenty-six episodes will be available on the streaming service from Friday and the clip indicates the show is going much more kiddie than the original 1980s animated series. In the new show, Dr. Claw has reactivated his global crime syndicate Mad and Inspector Gadget must stop him with the help of his niece Penny and her dog Brain.

With Community down three cast members, the theme song’s closing words (“one by one they all just fade away”) have never been more appropriate. Nonetheless, the start of Season 6 – its first on the Yahoo Screen streaming service – is a promising one.
The remainder of the Greendale 7 quickly fill their current vacancies with two distinct personalities — one of whom looks a lot like the school’s former head of It, and the other looking a heck of a lot like that guy from The Cape.
