Year in TV: The 10 Best (and 5 Worst) TV Shows of 2010

20 December 2010 8:17 AM, PST | Televisionary | See recent Televisionary news »

It's that time of year when we bid farewell to the last twelve months and start looking toward the future, but it's also a chance to reflect, to catalogue, and to reminisce as well. My selections for the Ten Best (and, cough, five worst) TV shows of 2010 have now gone live over at The Daily Beast. The series selected represent the very best that television had to offer the past twelve months and include such shows as Mad Men, Community, Terriers, Parks and Recreation, The Good Wife, Fringe, Justified, Boardwalk Empire, Friday Night Lights, and Modern Family. It wasn't easy to whittle down the competition to just ten shows as, despite the overall drain in creativity this calendar year, there were quite a lot of fantastic series. (In fact, one of the very best of the year didn't even air on American television at all: Season Three of BBC One's »

Gulliver's Travels review

20 December 2010 12:02 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jack Black takes centre stage in Gulliver's Travels. But is this a Boxing Day treat, or a massive misfire? Pete finds out...

When I first heard about Gulliver's Travels starring Jack Black, during one of the Orange Wednesday adverts, I assumed it to be a rather amusing joke. The juxtaposition of rent-a-slacker Jack Black with a classic satirical novel made for a hilarious spoof of the way children's films have been headed in recent years.

Imagine my surprise, then, when this turned out to be a real film, out in cinemas this Boxing Day. I tried to reserve judgement. I've seen School of Rock many times, Tenacious D songs Tribute and Wonderboy are regular visitors to my MP3 player, and I even tried to like The Pick of Destiny. As I went into the screening, I was trepidatious - would it turn out to be a Christmas cracker, or a cold, »

2010 best guest appearances including Jack Black, Mark E Smith & Bon Iver

17 December 2010 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Plus! The mega list of lists – Aka all the other stuff we didn't have room for

2010's best guest appearances

Bon Iver on Kanye's Lost In The World

It might be quicker to compile a list of people who didn't feature on Kanye's epic My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (Mike Oldfield, Rick Ross, Gil Scott-Heron, Aphex Twin etc) but Justin Vernon's cameo is a bit special.

Gillian Anderson as Wallis Simpson in Any Human Heart

Logan Mountstuart (Matthew Macfayden) crossed paths with Gillian Anderson's Wallis Simpson (brilliantly partnered by Tom Hollander as the paranoid Duke Of Windsor). An exile on a royal streak, she floated from Portugal to the Bahamas like a swan carved in ice, until Logan was crossed off their party list with a hissed "Judas!" straight to camera.

LG Pave the Way Forward for Home 3D with Quirky Cinema Ad and Viral

16 December 2010 8:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Last week we were invited to an event at visual effects and computer animation studio Framestore, which showcased the new cinema advert for LG Electronics 3D TV.

Richard Ayoade (best known for his role in The It Crowd and the director behind the highly-anticipated, upcoming rites of passage comedy feature, Submarine) joined forces with Framestore’s digital team to direct the ad and the end product is a virtuoso, single take, in-camera delight which more than adequately demonstrates the advantages of having 3D in the home.

Designed to inform consumers and ease the confusion around this new domestic technology, a live-action Faq has also been devised (embedded with the advert below). Comedy duo Tim Key and Lloyd Wolf deliver pre-recorded answers through the online interface in response to consumers’ questions.

LG’s vision of using fun and entertaining means of educating consumers was certainly reflected in the package here. Like the advert, »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray: The A-Team, The Other Guys, The Town, Despicable Me, Legend of the Guardians, Cyrus, and More

15 December 2010 10:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. Exit Through The Gift Shop Describing the engrossing, frequently hilarious Banksy-directed Exit Through the Gift Shop as one of the best story-driven documentaries I've ever seen would almost certainly be misleading, as its veracity has been a point of contention since its Sundance premiere. To delve into the topic further would require detailing plot details that I'd be remiss to give away, so I'll just say this: The strength of the film is that whether or not it's authentic doesn't matter. The ultimate take-away from the picture comes from a place of complete truth, and that truth only resonates in the way that it does because the story was told in this form. Not only does »

If you haven't caught up on the year's best documentaries in time to fill out your top 10 list, three of them will be hitting DVD shelves this week, beginning with Josh Fox's Sundance award-winning "Gasland," an exploration of the "hydraulic fracturing" going on in own backyard, a type of drilling that has spread to 34 states in the U.S. and has left a host of reservoirs of toxic waste and frequent gas explosions along the way. For something less serious, but equally compelling, there is also Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg's "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work," which follows the »

LG and Framestore present ‘The Dazzling Future of 3D’

9 December 2010 2:18 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

As we all know, 3D is the Next Big Thing – and seemingly has been for a while. Whilst the third dimension has been implemented into our cinema screens with such enthusiasm over the last year or so as to quickly become something approaching the norm (especially for animated features), 3D in the home is another matter. The uptake on 3D capable televisions has been slow, but LG intend to change that with their new advertising campaign, which consists of an amusing, 3D commercial to be shown in cinemas and a complimentary interactive trouble-shooting video.

The commercial is produced by London-based and Oscar winning visual effects company Framestore and directed by Richard Ayoade of The It Crowd, Garth Merenghi’s Darkplace and The Mighty Boosh fame. It stars up and coming comedian and poet, Tim Key as an affable film director introducing the audience to the possibilities and accessibility of 3D in the home, »

The Morgana Show: why we need more female comedians

30 November 2010 6:10 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Channel 4's new Morgana Robinson-fronted sketch show is funny and cutting – qualities many male-led comedies struggle to achieve

In general I find women funnier than men. Given a video bargain bin choice between The Fast Show or Smack the Pony I'd chose the latter every time; I prefer the layered ennui of the female-dominated Getting On to the bullying of The Thick of It; I believe Linda Smith should be mourned as loudly as Bill Hicks; my favourite character in The It Crowd by a mile is Jen; and I'd much rather be sworn at by Jenny Eclair than Frankie Boyle. And now I can add Morgana Robinson – the star of The Morgana Show which starts tonight on Channel 4 – to my list of favourite impressionists. Although admittedly, it is a very short list.

Like deep sea fishing, snooker and model train building, professional comedy is a male-dominated pursuit. »

The Big Bang Theory S4E8 review

12 November 2010 7:53 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

"The 21-Second Excitation"

Series villain Wil Wheaton makes a welcome return this week as Sheldon Cooper's personal nemesis, a King Among Geeks always more than willing to abuse his power to take our hero down a few pegs.

But this time he's gone too far. When Wheaton (once again playing himself) and his cronies oust Sheldon and Co. from the first screening of a new version of Raiders Of The Lost Ark (a version with an extra 21 seconds which apparently explains 'the submarine issue'), Sheldon's sense of civic propriety - subject to the strength of his geek desires at the best of times - is penetrated. Cooper finishes up stealing the precious new version of Raiders from the cinema after sneaking in through a side door, pursued down the street by a rampaging horde of Raiders fans.

That's the central plot done with for this ep, but some of the »

Spooks and Horizon | TV review

26 October 2010 1:19 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The new series of Spooks is even more bonkers than ever. But it's still a brilliant rollercoaster, says Sam Wollaston

Spooks series blog: series nine, episode six

You may be interested to hear what happens when someone experiences technological difficulties here at the Guardian. A frozen screen, lost file, that kind of thing. So you call the It department. And one of the nice people will ask some questions in order to diagnose the problem, then they'll say they're going to take control of the computer remotely from wherever they are (the basement I imagine, like in The It Crowd). It's quite weird, seeing your cursor moving around the screen without you doing anything. Like some one's taken over your mind.

Not interesting? The same where you are? I only mention it because something similar happens in this episode of Spooks (BBC1). But it's not the MI5 It department moving »

Jason Solomons on Sally Hawkins's Broadway debut, and why Danny Mays can't find his way out of council estates

Sally forth

Sally Hawkins makes her Broadway debut this month, starring as Cherry Jones's daughter in a production of Mrs Warren's Profession. "I can't quite believe I'm here, stepping out from the world of George Bernard Shaw in rehearsals and straight into the modern whirl of Times Square," she tells me. "It's hard not to be overwhelmed with the excitement of it all – I'm tempted to do jazz hands all the way along Broadway back to my hotel." Sally, who leads the gals out on strike on the big screen in Made in Dagenham this weekend, will be seen at the upcoming London film festival in Richard Ayoade's directorial debut Submarine. "You just know he's got all the makings of a master film-maker," she says of Ayoade, who »

Downton Abbey; Whites; Dci Banks: Aftermath; Inspector George Gently; Horizon | TV review

Downton Abbey arrived with too much historical baggage, but Alan Davies's restaurant sitcom cooked up a few belly laughs

Downton Abbey | ITV Player

Dci Banks: Aftermath | ITV Player

Inspector George Gently |iPlayer

Horizon | iPlayer

The Inbetweeners | 4Od

Julian Fellowes had a lot of explaining to do in his new costume drama series Downton Abbey, though the opening sequence probably gave us more footnotes about Edwardian grate-blacking and the pecking order of domestic drudges than was entirely absorbable amid the squawk of maids and cackling cooks and general dawn uproar of an aristocratic household being dustpan-and-brushed to its full English properness. And did we have to be herded quite so eagerly around familiar historical landmarks? Those of us who already knew the Titanic was supposed to be unsinkable hardly needed to hear it again from Lady Grantham (Elizabeth McGovern), even if the future heirs to the estate had just gone down with it, »
