Suits Round Table: Farewell, Jessica Pearson

21 September 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Jessica has left the building.

On Suits Season 6 Episode 10, Jessica left the firm after helping Rachel win Leonard Bailey his freedom. 

TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman, Jasmine Blu, Christine Hinton and Allison Nichols discuss Jessica's goodbye, Leonard being set free and what's next. 

What did you think of Jessica's exit?

Stacy: I love Jessica, and I'm sad to see her go, but, if she had to leave, I'm happy with the way they wrote her out. I loved the flashbacks, watching her remember why she became a lawyer in the first place, and getting the win with Leonard. It was all very emotional.

Jasmine: I'm devastated. I love Gina Torres and Jessica was my favorite! The show never delved into her character development as much as the others to me. Her departure was bittersweet and subdued, too subdued. Watching the show will ever be the same.

Christine: I started watching Suits because of Gina Torres. »

Interview: Uncharted and Firefly composer Greg Edmonson on the art of the soundtrack

21 September 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sean Wilson talks to the BAFTA-award-winning film, TV and video game composer about his celebrated soundtrack work…

In today’s pop culture climate, no longer are composers limited to one genre or field of speciality. Increasingly our greatest musicians are diversifying across a host of different platforms, and one of the greatest is Greg Edmonson whose career has extended from some of TV’s greatest shows to some of the most successful video games of all time. In a discussion about his work, Greg chats about what constitutes a truly great soundtrack.

Thanks for talking to me about soundtracks, Greg. Given music composition is the backbone of your career, what are your first memories of the music you fell in love with?

Oh there are a number of things here – I remember the very first time I heard an orchestra play. What a wonderment! To me, at least, music is »

“It’s not about attacking because Donny’s real good at attacking himself,” says Whedon to The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s about getting people to vote, because it’s frightening the apathy that people are treating the most crucial election of their lifetimes with.”

Nsfw: Whedon Assembles The Avengers (And More!) To Take Down Donald Trump

21 September 2016 7:27 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Joss Whedon is known for putting together great big ensemble casts, filling their mouths with witty banter, and then unleashing them on audiences in a way that tickles the funny bone and- sometimes- speaks to your heart. Such is the case with his latest project. Except this time it isn't The Avengers, Firefly, or Buffy The Vampire Slayer. It's a video series called "Save The Day."

In this inaugural video, Whedon has gathered stars like Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Mark Ruffalo, Julianne Moore, Keegan-Michael Key, Matt McGorry, James Franco, Jesse Williams, Cobie Smulders, Martin Sheen, and Neil Patrick Harris to convey how important this year's Presidential Election is.

‘Firefly’: Nathan Fillion Reveals the Key Scene Joss Whedon Never Got to Make

20 September 2016 4:51 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Firefly” tends to rank pretty high in the gone-too-soon TV canon. A sci-fi series created by Joss Whedon and canceled by Fox after its first season, which ran for 14 episodes between late 2002 and early 2003, the show has since become a cult classic. To hear star Nathan Fillion tell it, one of Whedon’s ideas that never materialized was especially compelling.

“Joss once described an opening scene to me where we are looking at a planet with a ring around it and as we come in close, we see the ring is actually rocks and pieces of ships and old derelicts. It’s a junk ring. It’s the junkyards — we mentioned it in ‘Firefly’ one time. We see little bits and we’re jumping slowly from bit to bit and as we get closer »

Lbcc 2016 Wrap Up: Con Man The Game

20 September 2016 8:47 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As we waited in Line Jace showed off the Con Man game app to others.

   This past weekend at Long Beach Comic Con I knew that Con Man was going to have a panel featuring Nathan Fillion, Pj Haarsma and Nolan North, but I did not expect the overwhelming support for the show as well as their brand new app “Con Man: The Game”. Alan Tudyk could not be in attendance since he was busy this past weekend getting married (congratulations sir!). But the crew on hand did one hell of a job entertaining the crowd. This was one of the few panels this weekend that had a line zig zaging out the door and into the parking lot, although some would argue that a good amount of folks were actually there to save their seat for the Firefly panel since the room was not going to be cleared in between panels. »

Review: Rose City Comic Con 2016

12 September 2016 2:04 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As I sit here looking at my iPad screen writing this, I think back on the past two days at the Rose City Comic Con and think “Damn, what experience in my life will ever top the fun I had this weekend?” This was the first Comic Convention I ever attended and damned if every other con to follow will have a lot to live up to.

  What struck me first was the atmosphere. From the moment I stepped off the Max train (the often times unreliable form of public transportation we in Portland rely upon) and walked to the entrance of Rccc, you felt an aura, for lack of a better term, of acceptance and joy. Folks of all shapes, sizes, and ages were dressed in their favorite characters, ready to show them off to not only the other convention goers but hopefully to some of the creators who »

How one ‘Moana’ writer’s sick day saved Alan Tudyk’s chicken character

7 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The furry friends and scaled sidekicks that accompany animated ladies on their adventures are a Disney staple. Characters like Flounder, Mushu, and Pascal entertain kids and adults alike. The newest Disney princess, Moana, has her puppy-like pet pig, Pua, but she nearly lost out on having a feathered pal. Fortunately for Firefly alum Alan Tudyk, his chicken character, Hei Hei, survived the making of Moana. It’s “one of the most fun roles I’ve ever done,” the frequent Disney voice actor told HitFix at San Diego Comic-Con. For a while though, Hei Hei just wasn’t working. As recently as this April, it looked like he wouldn’t make it into the movie, set 2,000 years ago on a fictional Pacific island. Originally, Hei Hei was a macho guy with big attitude, Moana story artist Sunmee Joh told press on a recent visit to Disney Animation’s campus in Burbank, »

Examining Serenity's introductory shot

4 September 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Craig Thomas Sep 27, 2016

Joss Whedon's Serenity movie opens with a stunning opening shot. We take a look at it in more detail...

It's now been more than a decade since we saw the crew of Serenity fly off into the 'verse for the last time. Yet the appeal of the show has not diminished, nor has it seem to have aged. Part of the reason is the love and care poured into each moment by creator Joss Whedon & co, both on the short-lived TV show Firefly, and its big-screen adaptation, Serenity.

Introducing a cast of nine established characters to an (almost) entirely new audience was never going to be an easy task. It would take something special to pull it off successfully, or else risk getting bogged down in a swamp of character introductions (a fate which has befallen any number of ensemble movies in the past).

Beyond He-Man and She-Ra: celebrating the Filmation legacy

31 August 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Andrew Younger Sep 2, 2016

Tarzan, Space Sentinels, The New Adventures Of Batman, Flash Gordon, Bravestarr and more, as we salute Filmation...

For a child of the 1970s and 80s, nothing readied you for a half hour of quality entertainment quite like the Filmation logo. Immortalised by their phenomenal success with He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe, and its spin off She-Ra: Princess Of Power, Filmation produced some of the most fondly remembered animated series to grace the small screen.

Over a period of 26 years - in tandem with classic Doctor Who funnily enough - the company's writers, artists and producers delivered a staggering amount of programming. While naysayers point to Filmation's penchant for reusing a stockpile of rotoscoped body movements, or the heavy handedness of its moralising and educational content - children on the other hand, thrilled to an irresistible mixture of action, adventure and superhuman heroes.

Now something of a lost art form, »
