Netflix's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt": The Good, the Bad and the Dong

2 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tituss Burgess and Ellie Kemper in "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"Photo: Netflix Much has been said about the way Netflix is changing television. That may be true in terms of we watch TV, but their actual programming has not been the stuff of water cooler talk. Sure, they have their successes in "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black", but when was the last time you and your friends had a lengthy talk about "Marco Polo" or "Hemlock Grove"c Yeah, me neither. Even the return of "Arrested Development" didn't get people talking for much time. However, on March 5th, they put out a show that has entered the public consciousness, both for how funny it is and, of course, some controversy. That show is "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". I do not watch a lot of television. I keep up with "Game of Thrones", "Community", and "Louie". That's it. I »

4 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

'Mad Men' creator Matthew Weiner: 'I feel a sense of accomplishment'

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Matthew Weiner has always been more comfortable talking about the past of “Mad Men” rather than letting anyone know anything about the future — even when that future is only seven episodes long, starting Sunday, April 5 at 10 p.m. Having spent enough time over the years asking Weiner questions that he responded to with a very guarded, “Well, you’ve got to watch,” I knew enough to focus as much on the past as possible when we recently sat down for an hour-long interview to discuss the end of his Emmy-winning baby. We talked about the last days of production, looked back all the way to the show’s origins when Weiner was a staff writer on “Becker” looking for a different kind of career in television, the show’s long acting Emmy drought, and more. And I made it almost to the end without a single “You’ve got to watch. »

9 Reasons Why the 'X-Files' Revival Matters

12 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Admit it, millennials: When the news broke Tuesday that FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be returning to the Fox network for a six-episode reboot of "The X-Files," many of you said, "Who are Mulder and Scully?" After all, the show has been off the air for 13 years. Since then, Gillian Anderson (Scully) moved to England and did period dramas, while David Duchovny (Mulder) became that creepy old lech on Showtime's "Californication," and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter went Mia and was apparently abducted by aliens.

Still, even if "The X-Files," its stars, and its creator haven't been pinging the cultural radar much in recent years, the return of the show with its original cast and showrunner on board is a huge deal. Much of what we now take for granted in pop culture -- especially on TV and online -- owes a tremendous debt to the 1993-2002 sci-fi drama series. »

The Americans Review: “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?” (Season 3, Episode 9)

25 March 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Seeing as “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?” spends a good deal of the hour looking under the hood of everyone’s favourite four-wheel courier, I’m going to do a little curtain-drawing myself. As we’ve gotten deeper into this season of The Americans, review screeners of new episodes have been made available closer and closer to actual live airings. Obviously, having time to ruminate on each new episode before talking about it is ideal, but it’s not like The Americans ever leaves you without something to say immediately after watching each hour.

Point being, I’m very glad that, unlike the last few episodes, I had a couple days to think over “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?,” because after a first watch, I had some pretty strong reservations about the episode. Punctuated by three long, densely written scenes between Elizabeth and a woman destined to become collateral damage, »

10 Ways Lost Was Almost Completely Changed

25 March 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Lost was a necessary sacrifice. Much like how we suffered through the total mess of Batman And Robin to get the gritty reboot of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films, or how your town will sacrifice a virginal Catholic police man in a giant wicker effigy to ensure a good harvest in the coming year, Lost died on its feet so that many more could live. But at least it burnt brightly and loudly before then.

Ultimately, nobody was particularly happy with how Lost turned out. Fans who had been tuning into ABC’s hit mystery series from the very beginning didn’t get all the answers they wanted, and the few they were granted access to were far from satisfying. By that point they’d gone through so many plot twists and time travel shenanigans that they were few and dedicated compared to the blockbuster viewership it had at the start. »

Your Essential Guide To Marvel’s Defenders On Netflix

25 March 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix has long led the charge in the transformation of the way in which we access television. Providing international platforms for such quality entertainment as Breaking Bad and Arrested Development, it was the move into original programming that really set the service on the track to greatness. Several seasons of Lilyhammer, Orange Is The New Black and House of Cards later, Netflix has bulging awards cabinet, and a plan for Marvel’s Defenders.

It is, perhaps, unsurprising that Netflix would want in on the Marvel Universe, since it enjoys unprecedented success on screens both big and small. Both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Agent Carter draw loyal audiences to their episodic television adventures, and the cinematic superheroes routinely break box office records. The advantage of Netflix, however, is that the usual restrictions of network television and motion picture censors do not apply. This means that, not »

Better Call Saul episode 8 review: Rico

25 March 2015 1:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Just what is going to happen to Jimmy to finally turn him into his Breaking Bad character? Better Call Saul has us hooked...

This review contains spoilers.

1.8 Rico

Jimmy McGill is nothing if not determined.

His is a pragmatic, low-key determination, to be sure, but it’s his primary motivator, and the driving force of another excellent episode of Better Call Saul. It manifests as an unerring attention to detail, and a real sense of diligence; as Chuck himself says in the opening flashback, Jimmy has “so much drive”. This opening is jam-packed with excellent character details, adding subtle shades to Jimmy, Chuck, Kim (what was that kiss about, eh) and Howard in a way that feels entirely natural, rather than expository. We see Jimmy in a fairly demeaning position, pushing the mail cart around the office of his high-flying brother, wearing a terribly geeky short-sleeved shirt. Does he seem bitter, »

Review: Better Call Saul S1E08, Rico (Or, Let's Reassess In Six Months)

24 March 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

For all of its strengths, one thing Better Call Saul appears to lack is a firm sense of its overall narrative. Breaking Bad seasons are like lessons in structure, but this prequel doesn't appear to have quite the same composition. Of course, the final two episodes may reveal me to be wrong, but it does seem like Saul has a more flexible approach, something that allows it to do episodes like the Mike-focused instalment and "Rico", which feels much more like a legal procedural than anything else on the show so far.This more malleable approach to structure hasn't been to the show's detriment in any significant way, yet. For anyone viewing the Kettleman story as the case that would span the season, though, it must...

Joseph Gilgun Cast as Preacher’s Irish Vampire Cassidy

24 March 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's Preacher pilot for AMC -- based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's 90s comic -- has another bit of co-lead casting info. Though we still don't have our Jesse Custer, we now have our Irish vampire, Cassidy, who will be played by Joseph Gilgun (This Is England). Deadline describes the character as, The most wild-ass, bestest “bro” you’d ever want to meet. He may be 100 years dead but no one’s more boisterously alive than Proinsias Cassidy. An incorrigible mischief-maker, Cassidy’s up for anything — joyriding, bungee-jumping, bank robbing, peyote dropping. He’s also a relentless conversationalist with opinions on everything from religion to politics to pop culture to theories on why people are better able to tolerate the odor of their own flatulence.

Chris Carter looks back on 'The X-Files' legacy

24 March 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last summer at press tour, I sat down with Chris Carter to discuss his new Amazon drama "The After," but my main interest was in asking him about another show he had created: "The X-Files." We spent 15 minutes talking about the legacy of that show, how he feels the TV business has changed in the dozen-odd years since it ended, and how he might be applying some of the lessons he learned there to this new project. When Amazon pulled the plug on "The After" before a second episode was even shot, I suddenly had 15 minutes of conversation with no news peg, and I figured this would just be something for my personal archives. Then Fox announced today that Carter, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson would be reuniting for a six-episode "X-Files" limited series, and I had the perfect context in which to finally transcribe that recording. We talk briefly about "The After" here, »

Showtime is getting into the business…business. The premium cable network just ordered a full season of Billions, a new drama set in the modern-day world of Manhattan finance.

The series is currently slated to start production later this year, under writers and executive producers David Levien, Andrew Ross Sorkin, and Brian Koppelman, with a planned 2016 release for the series. President of Showtime David Nevins announced the pick-up, saying, “With this caliber of writing and acting, I think the show’s authenticity and insider look will have great appeal to a discerning audience.” [caption id="attachment_430917" align="alignright" width="351"] Image via Showtime[/caption] Lewis, of course, has a long history with Showtime, headlining the first three seasons of Homeland alongside Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin. »

Mulder and Scully officially return for a new 6 episode run of X-Files

24 March 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Twin Peaks-Esque supernatural sci-fi mystery thriller, X-Files, is officially back for more. The Golden Globe and Emmy award winning Science Fiction television series returns this time for a 6 episode run on Fox. The television phenomenon has flirted with various projects since it’s series passing with feature length films like 1998’s The X-Files: Fight The Future($189 million worldwide), and an oddly timed sequel in 2008, “I Want To Believe” ($68.37 Million worldwide). 

But what would the series be without the chemistry between detectives Scully and Mulder? Thankfully, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny return along with series creator Chris Carter; though there is no word if one of the series most renown writers, Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad), will be penning any of the 6 episodes.  

Television revivals seem to have become something of a trend, what with 24 and an announced return to Lynch’s surreal camp odyssey Twin Peaks, you can »

The X-Files is coming back to Fox as a limited series. The groundbreaking show brought sci-fi into people's homes from 1993 to 2002, and proved to be the gift that kept giving thanks to one of its greatest legacies: Breaking Bad. Bad creator Vince Gilligan has often spoken about how his time as a writer on The X-Files influenced his storytelling, and that he learned how to be a showrunner by watching X-Files creator Chris Carter work.
