Rick and Morty Returns: Grade the Bloody, Emotional 'Premiere'

30 July 2017 8:56 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

All kids cope with divorce differently. Some retreat, others lash out — and a rare few thrust themselves into a Mad Max-style dimension to work out their aggression through mindless bloodshed. I think we all knew which avenue Rick and Morty was going to take.

VideosWatch Rick and Morty‘s Full Season 3 Trailer

Fortunately, like Summer, we “f–ing love post-apocalyptic versions of Earth,” so we were all about Sunday’s long-awaited return. Sure, some aspects of the gang’s new life left much to be desired — we pretty much draw the line at eating human flesh — but Summer’s love »

The 20 Best Sci-Fi TV Series of the 21st Century, Ranked

18 July 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It hardly needs mentioning, but not all science-fiction is created equal. Even as a term, it’s difficult to pin down exactly what constitutes sci-fi, especially in a medium like TV that can change so much from week to week or season to season. So when we took stock of the best TV shows from the past two decades, we turned to one unimpeachable source as a guide for what we should include in our list.

Thanks, Roman.

That’s not to say that a few of the shows might have an odd sword or two, but most of what we tried to single out here imagines a world markedly different from our own. Some take place in reimagined futures, while others take a sharper focus on the present with some key, otherworldly changes.

Given the wealth of shows in this genre, we opted not to include animated or unscripted series in this particular list. »

Emmys Dream Ballot: The Wild Card Nominees Who Might Actually Make the Cut

12 July 2017 9:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You can’t always get what you want. That’s how the song goes, but it hasn’t stopped us from hoping – not when it comes to the second “X-Files” revival and not when it comes to the 2017 Emmy Awards.

Nominations will be announced Thursday morning from the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center in North Hollywood. Anna Chlumsky and Shemar Moore will read the chosen nominees, but until that moment arrives — when dreams are dashed and the cold light of day sets in — the dark horse contenders can still believe.

And we can still believe in them. This year’s Emmy race has been incredibly competitive. With Netflix and Amazon measuring appendages and a packed Fyc calendar from April 1 through early June, there are clearly more deserving vote getters than there will be nominees.

So let’s talk about the long shots one more time »

Samurai Jack returns to comics with a Quantum twist

20 June 2017 7:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Idw Publishing has announced that Samurai Jack is making its grand return to comics courtesy of writer Fabian Rangel Jr. (‘Namwolf) and artist Warwick Johnson Cadwell (Tank Girl) with a bold new take on the beloved cartoon series entitled ‘Quantum Jack’.

Quantum Jack sees Jack like we’ve never seen him before. After getting zapped by an experimental Quantum Ray, Jack is sent hurtling into one alternate reality after another, his memories erased, but his spirit intact. Can you imagine Jack as the leader of a ruthless biker gang of bounty hunters? Thanks to the warped minds of Rangel Jr. and Cadwell, you don’t have to. They’ve done it for you! And that’s just the beginning…

“I’m beyond thrilled to be working on new Samurai Jack comics,” states Rangel Jr. “Samurai Jack is a huge influence on my storytelling, and on Helena Crash especially. I think »

Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Animated Program

14 June 2017 11:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: “Archer

Still Eligible: Yes.

Hot Streak: “South Park” has been nominated four years in a row, 12 of the last 13 years. “The Simpsons” has been nominated two years in a row, but previously had a 24-year hot streak before it missed out on a nod in 2014.

Fun Fact: “The Simpsons” and “South Park” have been duking it out in this category for as long as the latter has been in existence. Fox’s iconic comedy has 10 awards and 25 nominations, while Comedy Central’s most heralded series of all time has five wins and 15 nods.

With one of last year’s nominees no longer eligible — “Phineas and Ferb,” which aired its final episode in 2015 — there’s at least one open slot in the Outstanding Animated Program category. That’s good news for the newcomers and those denied entry for past season. We’re hoping that bodes well for “BoJack Horseman, »

Phil Lamarr on 'Samurai Jack': "I Consider It a Work of Art"

6 June 2017 12:14 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

TV Networks Dramatically Boost Branded-Content Output on Facebook

17 May 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amid this year’s TV upfront hustle to lock down billions in ad-spending commitments, expect networks to more aggressively pitch Madison Avenue buyers on branded-content campaigns — which have exploded across social media during the current TV season.

On Facebook alone, the number of branded posts across all TV pages increased by 77% from October 2016 to March 2017, according to an analysis by social-media analytics firm ListenFirst Media. In the first quarter of 2017, branded posts comprised less than 1% of content published across TV show pages on Facebook — meaning networks have plenty of room to funnel more sponsored content into that pipeline.

Here’s one of the kickers: The branded content from TV networks on average returned a whopping 105% higher engagement (likes, shares, and comments) than non-branded posts. ListenFirst analyzes social-media activity of the top 150 TV programmers in the U.S., tracking several thousand shows each month.

‘Wayward’ Comic Series Optioned for TV by Manga Entertainment

15 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Wayward,” the ongoing action-drama comic series written by Jim Zub and illustrated by Steven Cummings, has been acquired by Manga Entertainment, the U.K.’s largest anime distributor. Manga will develop the comic series for television as a Japanese animated or live action series.

Adult Swim Adds ‘The Jellies’ to Animated Series Roster

11 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Time Warner’s Adult Swim said it would add a new animated series, “The Jellies,” to its slate of original animated programs.

The quarter-hour program comes from Tyler, The Creator, a popular rapper, record producer and music-video creator (above, pictured), and Lionel Boyce, and will premiere this summer. Adult Swim aims to win millennial viewers in both primetime and late-night, and often features avant-garde programming with unexpected themes and characters.

The Jellies” follows a family of jellyfish and their 16-year-old son Cornell. When the boy learns he was adopted at birth, he is shocked, and subsequently spirals out of control in an attempt to “find himself.” As a result, he and his family and friends wind up in what the network bills as “uncanny situations.”

The show’s musical score and original composition is created by Tyler, who also lends his voice, along with those of Boyce, Phil Lamarr, Blake Anderson, Aj Johnson »

Detective Comics #956 Review

10 May 2017 7:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review contains minor spoilers.

It pains me to say this, but I told you so. Detective Comics #956 is one issue too far for the “League of Shadows” storyline. While it did succeed in hyping up Cassandra Cain, I don’t think anyone will be wishing for more long-winded arcs like this one.

As expected, Cassandra faces off against her mother, Lady Shiva, and proves she’s more than meets the eye. She finally defeats her in a grueling battle, but there’s a real gut punch that takes us all by surprise (but really shouldn’t because, well, you’ll see what I mean when you read it). In the end, Cassandra does make some form of peace with Shiva and they share a curious moment, which should have future repercussions for the Bat Family.

Star Wars Day: The Best ‘Star Wars’ Movie is the One Nobody Talks About — Watch

4 May 2017 11:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Most diehard “Star Wars” fans swear by “The Empire Strikes Back” as the best entry in the franchise, and for a couple of decades, this was an accurate perception. The release of George Lucas’ prequels only further enhanced appreciation for the first sequel in the series, which is rich in imagination and intrigue. But while the “Star Wars” universe continues to expand in scope, nothing has nailed the possibilities of this sci-fi/fantasy excursion better than the animated 2003 “Star Wars: Clone Wars,” directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, and yet nobody talks about it.

That’s partly because the Clone Wars story has revised and expanded into a new series that launched in 2008, which also tells the story of the dramatic showdown between warring factions that took place in between the events of episodes II and III. But it’s also because Tartakovsy’s “Clone Wars” isn’t often seen as a »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is filled with great action, humor and performances, but it is also infused with a new mixed tape and soundtrack, a dynamic that resonated deeply with audiences in the first film as evidenced by the success of the soundtrack album.  The Grammy-nominated “Guardians of the Galaxy” soundtrack reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first soundtrack album consisting entirely of previously released songs to top the chart. The album was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A.

Richard Gere Has A New Career, Thanks To Two Israeli Filmmakers

13 April 2017 10:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This is the story of how two Israeli filmmakers transformed a Buddhist movie star into Bob Dylan, a New York homeless man, a Manhattan Jewish fixer, and a politician with family issues. It started when Oren Moverman wrote “I’m Not There” with director Todd Haynes, who cast Richard Gere as one of six versions of Bob Dylan.

Several years later, Gere spotted Moverman across a crowded room. “It was an Academy event in New York,” Gere said. “It was a cocktail thing for new members.” Moverman introduced him to Oscar-nominated Joseph Cedar (”Footnote”). They wound up talking Middle East politics. “The three of us were getting along great,” said Gere, who told the men, “If you want to do something that has to do with the Middle East, even in a tangential way, talk to me.”

Rick And Morty Season 3 episode 1 review: The Rickshank Redemption

1 April 2017 10:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joe Matar Apr 3, 2017

It was the best Rick And Morty season premiere episode ever: thrills, spills, and continuity!

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 The Rickshank Redemption

So, maybe you’ve heard…

Here in the Us, Rick And Morty aired its season premiere this very April Fools’ night, like fifty times in a row, to boot. It streamed for a few hours on Adult Swim’s website and played on loop on Cartoon Network, in place of all the other scheduled programming. Samurai Jack and Dragon Ball Super fans were upset. But everyone else got a totally awesome Rick And Morty season 3 premiere! And it had pretty much everything I look for from the show.

First off, it was one helluva sci-fi rigmarole smash-em-up. At the end of last season, Rick got imprisoned by the Galactic Federation and they also kind of took over Earth, so a lot of murder and explosions »
