11 great TV series for young children on Netflix

18 May 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sam Glover May 25, 2017

Stuck for an alternative to the usual viewing for young kids? Then these streaming recommendations may be of use...

The wonderful world wide web (including this very site) has looked in detail at Netflix; the hits, the misses, the hidden gems, the ones to miss and so on. This said, Netflix Originals has another area where it operates. And this is where my three-year-old son comes in.

Thanks to Nick Jnr and Channel 5’s Milkshake, we’re generally okay in our house should children’s television (Aka award-winning parenting) be required. Netflix takes it to another level. There are the well-known shows (Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol etc.), the slightly lesser-known programmes (Pocoyo being my personal favourite) and then there are Netflix’s own productions. »

Down with tech bros! It's time for TV's female nerd revolution

9 May 2017 4:32 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The It Crowd, Silicon Valley and now Loaded … our screens are disappointingly pumped full of man-boys who work in technology. Please tell some new stories

The four British founders of tech company Idyl Hands have just sold their company to Us investors, netting them £14m each. That’s the premise of Channel 4’s new comedy Loaded, which started yesterday.

Wallets stuffed to bursting, Josh, Leon, Ewan and Watto celebrate in traditional fashion: taking a bath in Dom Perignon and hiring a barbershop quartet to sing Fuck You to everyone who refused them seed money. The first episode had a couple of laugh-out-loud moments about the challenges of sudden wealth (cue tiny violins), but did we really need to see this story again?

Only Fools and Horses USA – and other failed TV remakes

4 April 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Ricky Gervais managed it with The Office, but – from The It Crowd to Luther – which other Brit TV exports weren’t so lucky?

Related: Why are American TV remakes always so sanitised?

For every House of Cards or Shameless there’s a less successful Us remake of a great British TV show – and there’s a long history of American copies that didn’t even make it to the screen. Luther is the latest bad cover version to be abandoned, but not before these cookie-cutter flops …

Robert Rodriguez To Direct Animated Feature Ugly Dolls

28 March 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Robert Rodriguez has an intriguingly split career. On one hand, he’s notorious for his balls-to-the-wall grindhouse capers like Desperado, Sin City and Machete. On the other, he’s made bank with the Spy Kids trilogy, popular children’s films released in the early 2000s. Lately, he’s been tending towards the more bloody end of the spectrum, but perhaps he’s swinging back towards family friendly, as it’s just been announced that he’s to direct Ugly Dolls.

Ugly Dolls (or Uglydolls) are cute little stuffed toys who’ve snowballed in popularity since their introduction in 2001, with Babo, Cinko, Ice Bat and the rest making appearances in the backgrounds of Enchanted, The It Crowd and Zathura – not to mention famously being spotted fixed to Sasha Obama’s backpack on her first day of school in 2009. They come from the ‘uglyverse’ where the ethos is that ‘ugly’ is something »

Director Alice Lowe On Reshaping the Revenge Genre

23 March 2017 6:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The director dishes on industry bias, ‘Taxi Driver’ and turning a perceived setback into opportunity.

The buzz surrounding Prevenge, the pregnancy revenge horror film written, directed and starring Alice Lowe, is well-deserved. Prevenge follows Ruth (Lowe), a grieving woman who embarks on a killing spree and believes that her unborn child is guiding her in this quest for revenge after the loss of her partner. Chock-full of biting British humor, this mother-to-be’s rampage is both relatable as well as a refreshing new twist on the sub-genre that has often been plagued by rape plot lines. But most of all, it’s wickedly funny, which comes as no surprise considering Lowe’s remarkable career in comedy across the pond.

Although Prevenge is her directorial debut, Lowe has worked alongside some of the biggest names in British comedy for the better part of fifteen years, including Rob Brydon’s Annually Retentive, Horrible Histories »

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.

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 »

The Crystal Maze: first look at Richard Ayoade and new Crystal Dome

13 January 2017 3:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor May 26, 2017

Actor-director Richard Ayoade will present a 20-episode new series of The Crystal Maze for Channel 4, here's a first on-set pic...

Here it is, the first official look at presenter Richard Ayoade in some posh togs for the revived series of The Crystal Maze, due to arrive on Channel 4 this June.

See related  Bayonetta Xbox 360 review

Feast your eyes on this:

Using Den of Geek's renowned fashion nous, we can tell you that Mr Ayoade is sporting a hot raspberry corduroy suit which has been paired with a natty white lace-up ankle boot and an entomologically themed shirt. With a collar. He's probably wearing socks too, but you'll have to imagine those. Stripes, maybe?

You may also notice that Ayoade is standing in front of the new-look Crystal Dome with fancy light displays running around its facets that are almost as snazzy as his outfit. Magic. »
