12 November 2014 7:57 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As Netflix continues to assert itself as a major television company with such acclaimed series as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, Amazon Studios is racing to catch up by ordering series it hopes will be equally well-received.

Enclosed are descriptions of all seven pilots, courtesy of Deadline.

The TV shows that owe a debt to The Wonder Years

16 October 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Now that it’s finally been released on DVD, we look at the TV shows that built on The Wonder Years’ foundations…

The Wonder Years, famous for being the show that made a generation of kids nostalgic for a decade they’d never even set foot in, finally arrived on DVD this month following the resolution of a years-long music rights tangle. Neal Marlens and Carol Black’s comedy drama ran for six seasons between 1988 and 1993 on ABC, following Fred Savage’s Kevin Arnold through his late-sixties and early-seventies suburban adolescence.

Thematically, stylistically, and tonally, The Wonder Years blazed a trail for television comedy and teen-focused drama that was subsequently traipsed down by numerous shows, from the superlative Freaks And Geeks and My So-Called Life to How I Met Your Mother, Malcolm In The Middle and countless others. Its innovative film-style use of a single-camera, lack of laughter track, fourth-wall breaking, »

In celebration of Pink Ranger Amy Jo Johnson's birthday, here are some interesting facts about your favorite childhood TV show.

Amy Jo Johnson, better known as Kimberly Hart the Pink Ranger from the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, celebrates her 44th birthday on October 6.

While there have been many incarnations and multiple versions of the Power Rangers over the years, the only good version was clearly the original one '90s. Just make sure you don't go back and watch episodes from that time period, because there's no need to make yourself sad.

10 Best Twitter Celebrity Comebacks

6 October 2014 5:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Twitter

Twitter: home of open discussion, honest opinions… and thousands of people being outrageously rude and abusive, particularly to celebrities. If you look at David Cameron’s Twitter, for example, whether you support him or not it’s quite surprising just how much Twitter vitriol that he attracts. From calls of “Panface”, “Moonface”, “Pieface”, and other observations around how his head looks like a particularly shiny egg with a wig on it, to simple, expletive-filled dedications (“w*nker” seems to be a particularly popular thing to tweet at the current leader of the UK), Cameron’s Twitter account is a perfect example of how unflinching Twitter critics can be. Unfortunately for Cameron, he (or at least, his social media team) probably aren’t allowed to respond with snappy comebacks, or even “your mum” jokes.

It’s not just troll-hunting though: someone of the biggest and best celebrity feuds have made their way onto Twitter. »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

How to Discover the Shows Within Your Favorite Shows

25 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Back in TV’s Jurassic era, you had no choice but to watch a show exactly as it was presented: one episode at a time, interrupted by hiatuses and commercials. This is why so few series dared to tell long-form stories or make callbacks to past installments. That started to change in the ’80s and ’90s, but it wasn’t until the advent of DVRs and online streaming that you could break a show into Cubist fragments, examining particular facets and excluding others. It’s now possible to cherry-pick episodes on the basis of your own private manias, transforming one show into several smaller shows about particular characters or themes. Here are three ­examples.Malcolm in the Middle: The Breaking Bad Prequel In a DVD extra, Bryan Cranston and his Malcolm in the Middle co-star Jane Kaczmarek parodied their sitcom marriage after Breaking Bad ended by having Malcolm’s »

In Its Own Sweet Way, ABC’s black-ish Is a Landmark Show

24 September 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Set in the leafy suburbs, and co-created by Kenya Barris, a writer on America's Next Top Model, black-ish is about an upper-middle-class African-American family whose patriarch Andre "Dre" Johnson  (Anthony Anderson) worries that they're moving up in the world at the expense of their cultural identity. Narrated by Dre, and shot — à la The Wonders Years and Malcolm in the Middle — as a laugh-track-free mini-movie, the show strikes universal notes by being specific. This is not a TV program that pretends race and racism don't exist except in Very Special Episodes filled with teachable moments, nor is it one that insists that they can be ignored or somehow overcome by working hard or whistling a merry tune; it insists instead that there's a whole continuum of discrimination and misunderstanding, that every band on the continuum has its own subtle gradations, and that subjectivity plays a huge part in the »

Bryan Cranston turns Major League Baseball into a play in TBS promo

17 September 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Thanks to Breaking Bad, we all know Bryan Cranston can be a serious actor—but it’s nice to see his lighter Malcolm in the Middle comedic chops again from time to time.

Avid baseball fan Cranston stars in a commercial for TBS, touting his fictional one-man show that dramatizes the entire Mlb postseason. Cranston makes fun of himself, the serious actor, as he smashes a pie in his own face as an ode to the Baltimore Orioles postgame tradition, and delivers a poignant rendition of ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game.’ The commercial also has an appearance by ballerina Misty Copeland, »

Ben McKenzie suffers head injury while filming Gotham

14 September 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re all very excited by the premiere of Gotham which hits our screens on September 22nd. But remember folks, it’s all fun and games until someone bangs their head against a concrete pillar.

A few days ago Ben McKenzie – who stars as a young Detective James Gordon in the crime drama – was filming a fight sequence when the incident happened forcing him to be rushed to hospital to get stitches in his head.

The actor posted some images on his Instagram account and laughed off the accident afterwards, “Fight scene gone awry. Don’t ram your head into concrete pillars kids…Holy concrete wall Batman!”

Check out the graphic image below…

Thankfully it wasn’t a serious injury and he was able to dust himself off afterwards saying “Thanks for stitching me up nice. Back to work Monday.”

Casting rumors that never came true -- and would have changed everything

13 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In some parallel universe somewhere, Harrison Ford isn't a big screen legend, Bryan Cranston is still known as the dad from "Malcolm in the Middle," Emily Browning is a household name, and Batman used to date Buffy. Casting for movies and TV shows can be a tricky business, but when the right performer is picked to play the right role, magic can occur. It's interesting to note however just how many of those magic combinations almost never existed, with many iconic roles nearly going to other stars (or potential stars) We've dug up eleven of the juiciest TV and film casting rumors from the recent years that never came true.  See which stars almost played Batman, James Bond, Bella Swan, Neo, and more below: »

We’ve had a couple of Gotham promos this week featuring on Oswald Cobblepot and Detective James Gordon, and now it’s the turn of Donal Logue’s Detective Harvey Bullock, who is the subject of the latest featurette from the Batman prequel series. Take a look below…

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker.
