The original title of Sky/NBC’s new comedy drama was sacrificed to the gods of transatlantic appeal. Apparently Us audiences aren’t familiar enough with English boroughs just off the M4 for Apocalypse Slough to work (Apocalypse Slu-ff? Slo-oo?), hence the change to something more generic.
Thankfully, that seems to have been the only thing flattened in translation, because title aside, You, Me And The Apocalypse is a blast. Pun intended.
Mat Baynton (Horrible Histories, The Wrong Mans) is likeable as ever in the role of Slough bank manager Jamie Winton, the routine-loving straight man to his feckless, hedonistic housemate, Dave (Joel Fry). Yes, it’s a bit in debt to Peep Show, but these two soon have much more to worry about than Mark and Jez ever did. »

The dark and haunting series Hannibal returns for a third season, revealing the fates of characters hanging in the balance, and the continuing psychological cat and mouse games they face. After the shocking events of the season two finale, Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) is on the run in Europe—accompanied by his psychiatrist Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson)—sporting a new identity, but servicing the same insatiable appetite.

18 years ago today, U2 performed a concert in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina while on their PopMart Tour. They were the first major artist to have a concert in the city after the end of the Bosnian War. About 45,000 people attended the show held in Koševo Stadium — which was used as a morgue during the war. Security was tight at the show, and troops surrounded the stadium in case violence broke out. But the soldiers were part of one of the most meaningful moments of the concert, as NME magazine recalled: When the band walked offstage at the end of the show, the audience erupted into applause, and the troops joined in. Larry Mullen, Jr., the band’s drummer, later said in an interview on BBC Radio, “There's no doubt that that is an experience I will never forget for the rest of my life. And if I had to spend »

Short stories often make the best source material for feature films. They offer pitches with a gem of a concept that can be expanded into a more complex story. Fans of the original short story aren’t as prone to get pissed at changes from the book as fans of novels since they can acknowledge that there naturally are alterations when expanding a short story. Glaring omissions due to time constraints aren’t likely to be a problem like they are when adapting 500-page books to two-hour movies. “Brokeback Mountain,” “The Fly,” “Children of the Corn,” “The Absent-Minded Professor,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Total Recall” (and a slew of other Philip K. Dick sci-fi imaginings) started out as short stories. Neil Gaiman’s uniquely enchanting, haunting imagination has inspired a handful of film adaptations, including stop-motion movie “Coraline” and the far-too-much-fun “Stardust,” which starred Robert De Niro and a pre-“Daredevil” Charlie Cox. »

This summer has been an exciting one for TV fans. Halt and Catch Fire found a new gear by embracing its feminine side, Rectify somehow managed to top its incredible first two seasons, and Hannibal aired its most experimental and bold arcs yet. Several of the freshman comedies that made 2014 a banner year for the genre returned in fine form and Mr. Robot and UnREAL burst onto the scene, while the fascinating Sense8 flew under the radar. Fans of the criminally under-watched Halt and Catch Fire, Rectify, and Hannibal were likely unsurprised by their growth and creativity, but for many, this has been a summer of discovery.
@ChelseaKH13 no. My sister keeps telling me to watch it but I would have to start with the pilot & I don’t have the time to catch up

Everyone is talking about the season finale — which may well be the series finale — of Hannibal, and fair enough: it was shocking in a lot of different directions. But I’m still trying to parse the very existence of this series. Nothing to me is as shocking as the fact that it is a thing at all.
I’ve only seen Season 3, and I confess: the only reason I watched is because it features Richard Armitage. I think he’s amazing, and I worry that he is not being offered the sorts of roles that take advantage of his presence, which is considerable and rather ominous but not something there’s a lot of room for in our hidebound pop culture. I needn’t have worried in this case, because his Francis Dolarhyde — the serial killer who fancies himself a Great Red Dragon — is a weirdly delicate and very chilling combination of pathos and rage, »

In the wake of the end of "Hannibal" on NBC, series creator Bryan Fuller has given several interviews discussing where the show might go next if they are able to continue it. One issue has always been that Fuller did not have the rights to use the most famous of the Lecter novels - "The Silence of the Lambs" and the character of Clarice Starling.
Were the show to continue, he still hopes they could do it one day. Speaking with Crave Online, Fuller says:
"I absolutely do hope and would love to tell Silence of the Lambs with this cast. I love that novel and I think there's fantastic ways to reimagine it for thirty years later, and… yes. Period."
As the show has often shifted around plot points from the books, how would a season of the 'Silence' storyline work on "Hannibal":

Hannibal, old friend, you kinda lost me this week.
Look, I know Raul Esparza’s Dr. Frederick Chilton is vain, haughty, inept, smarmy, malicious and all sorts of other unpleasant adjectives. And I’ll admit I didn’t feel the slightest hint of sympathy when the dude had some of his organs painfully removed by Abel Gideon in Season 1 — or when Chilton took a bullet to the face (fired by the deeply addled Miriam Lass) in Season 2.
But there’s a difference between letting out a hearty chuckle at the end of »

Over the years, numerous films have seen themselves re-formatted and adapted to television series, with last year alone bringing series adaptations as varied as El Rey’s From Dusk Till Dawn and FX’s Fargo. HBO is poised to add another show to those ranks next year, as the channel announced that it would be adapting the 1973 Michael Crichton film Westworld into a tv series. The film, which starred Yul Brynner and James Brolin, marked the feature directorial debut of Crichton, who also wrote the screenplay.
Person of Interest creator Jonathan Nolan co-created the series, also titled Westworld, alongside Burn Notice and Pushing Daisies writer Lisa Joy. Nolan will be directing the pilot for the series, which stars Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Ed Harris, Clifton Collins Jr., and Jeffrey Wright. Set to premiere in 2016, though a premiere date has not been announced, HBO has released the first trailer for the series. »

If you plan to visit Camp Firewood for Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer prequel series — which hits the streaming service at midnight on Friday — make sure to leave some room in your duffel bag for suspension of disbelief.
Executive producers David Wain and Michael Showalter, who also wrote the eight-episode limited series, are well aware that the camp’s counselors don’t look exactly as they did in 2001, when the feature film was released.
