Red Dwarf Xii Episode 5 Review – ‘M-Corp’

Villordsutch reviews Red Dwarf Xii – M-Corp…

They say “time flies when you’re having fun” and here we are – rather shockingly – at the penultimate episode of Red Dwarf Xii. This weeks episode “M-Corp” sees Doug Naylor (again both writer & director) take such a subtle swipe at capitalism you may just miss it. I am of course typing this with my tongue firmly planted in my cheek.

It’s a day of celebrations. Firstly Lister’s birthday where we find him firmly above the forties, then for Rimmer as Lister promptly has a heart attack, though we quickly discover Lister didn’t suffer a heart attack thanks to a probe dropped into his body; it was actually a bad case of indigestion. Then the good news rolls in for all of the crew, as they are informed that a major corporation called M-Corp bought out Jmc – along with Planet Earth – back in the 26th Century.

International Newswire: South Korea’s ‘My Husband Got a Family’ Embraced by Mexico

In today’s International Newswire, Korean format ‘My Husband Got a Family’ scores in Mexico; Sola boards Latino hit animated movie “Space Chicken”; Sony Pictures Television produces ‘Atrapada’ for Mexico’s Imagen TV; and Karlovy Vary extends scope of its East of the West section to include the Middle East.

Which are the most successful format exporting countries in international TV? Few would include South Korea, but just weeks after “The Good Doctor,” based on a Korean format, bowed on ABC to spectacular ratings, another Korean re-version, “Mi marido tiene familia” (My Husband Got a Family), has just slayed the opposition as it bowed out on Mexican giant Televisa’s main Las Estrellas channel. Playing in a 5.30 P.M. time-slot on Sunday, the drama’s average share of 28.7% rated 364% above the competition.

A romantic family comedy, “Mi marido tiene familia” obviously touched a national nerve. Its plot — a thoroughly-modern woman butts heads with her husband’s rediscovered

New Photos For The Walking Dead Season 8 Feature Some Disgusting Walkers

Planet Earth has fallen into the cold, dead hands of the Walkers.

At least, that’s according to The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple, who recently warned viewers that in season 8, the world belongs to those undead flesh-munchers scattered across the globe. It’s a timely reminder, too, given how much of The Walking Dead‘s marketing campaign is often dedicated to the human conflict bubbling away beneath the surface, with the show’s eighth season poised to bring a sense of closure to the battle brewing between Negan and Rick Grimes.

War is (almost) upon us, then, but as Gimple points out, part and parcel of what makes The Walking Dead so special is the unrelenting zombies. They’re a constant source of danger, essentially, even if you can’t see them on screen. And though this year’s instalment will place a particular focus on the “all-out war” involving Alexandria,

Decades before “Planet Earth,” “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Naked and Afraid,” or even kids’ “Nature Cards” in the 1980’s, Jane Goodall was nature and environmental media’s “Eve.” At 83, Eve headlined the Hollywood Bowl on Monday night as the star of Brett Morgen’s feature documentary “Jane.” National Geographic, which will release the film in theaters later this month, leveled-up with a King Kong-sized outdoor seated dinner, premiere, and live orchestra scoring the film for over 15,000 guests.

War is (almost) upon us, then, but you wouldn’t know it from the sneak peek of the season 8 premiere that AMC just dropped at New York Comic Con tonight. It’s a bit of an odd promo to release, as it focuses solely on Carl and doesn’t really show much of the action that’s to come.

Critics Pick the Best Documentary TV Series Ever, From ‘The Jinx’ to ’30 for 30’ – IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the Best Documentary TV Series Ever, From ‘The Jinx’ to ’30 for 30’ – IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What’s the best documentary series you’ve seen on TV? Opening this up to past series, current ones, and those that you may have seen screeners for that are coming up soon.

Liz Shannon Miller (@lizlet), IndieWire

While we debate whether or not it technically counts as a TV show (certainly that Oscar it won would suggest otherwise), “O.J.: Made in America” was without question a seminal work, and one which owed a lot to its episodic structure while proving to be an addictive binge. Documentaries aren’t exactly my favorite genre, but “Made in America” was as gripping as any scripted series — and we have definitive proof of this,

Wild About the BBC

If there’s one Great British institution that comes in for some flack on a regular basis, it’s the good old BBC. While to many that should just be ‘the old BBC’, with a new series of Strictly Come Dancing (I’m not that big on brevity) looming large, the snipers should be silenced, at least until Christmas. But as this is only a temporary measure, what’s the one thing that the broadcasting giant can count on all year round? Why, Mother Nature of course.

Whether it’s a tiger hunting, a flock of flamingos, or something a bit closer to home like fox clubs at play, these are the things that go some way to justifying the licence fee. Yes, the licence fee; that bone of contention that always leaves the general public feeling a little, well, ripped-off. One failed sitcom after another, overpaid presenters, plus the sporting calendar dwindling every year,

Forget the Eclipse, the ‘Largest’ Asteroid Ever Tracked by Nasa Is About to Roar Past Earth
Nasa’s Paul Chodas wants to make one thing perfectly clear: Planet Earth isn’t about to get obliterated by a giant killer asteroid.

Nevertheless, when the 2.7-mile-wide object known as Asteroid Florence roars past Earth at a blistering eight miles a second—its closest fly-by of our planet in over 600 years—on Sept. 1 at 2:40 p.m. Et, it’s still going to be a “remarkable” event.

“It’s the closest that an asteroid this large has ever come to the Earth,” says Chodas, manager of Nasa’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office, located in Pasadena, California. “So it’s
