TV Imports: The Best Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Acquired Series You’re Not Watching

24 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In this era of “Peak TV” there doesn’t seem to be enough time to bother with drama and comedy imports. But while there are more than enough American shows to binge, it would be a mistake to bypass great foreign TV. After all, that would mean missing out on fan favorites like “Doctor Who,” “Orphan Black,” “Downton Abbey” and “Sherlock.”

Foreign TV has spawned hit U.S. adaptations like “Homeland” and “The Office,” as well as pale imitations of the original. Remember the failed American versions of “The It Crowd” and “Coupling”? Yeah, we’d like to forget ’em as well.

It’s a shame that the major streaming services rare;y showcase their foreign acquisitions as well as their homegrown originals. We get it; there is just too much damn TV »

Is change as good as a rest to keep classic British TV characters fresh?

Doctor Who, Bond, Sherlock: reboots are changing audience views of heroes

Once again, the Tardis is looking for a new wrangler; a fresh pair of hands to tame its time-shifting drive shaft. In a ritual by now well established, the response has been a spate of widespread speculation. Will the new Doctor be a woman? Will they be black? Like travellers through a wormhole, viewers await answers to all the old questions, while the actors suggested for the role this time range from The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, to the acclaimed stage star Ben Whishaw, to Broadchurch’s Olivia Colman and The It Crowd’s Richard Ayoade.

A handful of major male film and television roles now regularly spark this level of reaction when a vacancy comes up. Bond, obviously, is the other big one. So when Peter Capaldi, the current Doctor, announced on Radio 2 that he had finished spinning through the eons, »

Drop What You're Doing and Start Binge-Watching These British Shows

23 January 2017 3:30 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

I'm not saying television is my religion or anything, but it is a persistent and omnipresent force in my life. I mean, there's nothing better than wasting my time eating Chinese food and watching a variety of random episodes of random shows. I've been doing this for years and years now, and we don't need to get into specifics or anything, but trust me: I've had a lot of time on my hands, and I've watched a lot of shows. Because of this, I've discovered a bunch of gems. One of my favorite things to look out for are British TV shows, both old and new. They always stand out - British television seasons are shorter and therefore all the more easier to binge; they're not shy about profanity, nudity, and all that other stuff I like; and, they're often wonderfully diverse. There are the old standards of British telly - Downton Abbey, »

If You Have to Visit Black Rock, This New Blu Is the Way to Go

Warner Archive Delivers the Best Way to Enjoy a Bad Day at Black Rock

Welcome to this week in home video! Click the title to buy a Blu-ray/DVD from Amazon and help support Fsr in the process!

Pick of the WeekBad Day at Black Rock [Warner Archive]

What is it? A one-armed man arrives via train in a remote western town, and the populace reacts with suspicion and violence.

Why buy it? Spencer Tracy excels as the polite but mysterious stranger whose presence sets everyone on edge, and the more he probes the harder they push. The film explores threads of America’s deep-seated racism and small-town insulation, and it pairs that commentary with a steadily increasing suspense. The themes and actions here are still sadly relevant, even now, and it makes for an important watch that still manages to entertain. Tracy’s potential adversaries include Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Walter Brennan, and »

It's official. The Crystal Maze will be returning to Channel 4 for a full, twenty-episode series including a handful of charity celebrity specials later this year.

The series was commissioned following the overwhelmingly positive response to last year's Stand Up To Cancer celebrity edition (and no doubt, the ongoing success of the ace Crystal Maze Experience in London and soon, Manchester).

Presenting this time around will be new Maze Master Richard Ayoade, »
