Final Thoughts: Coming from someone who hasn’t really enjoyed the last two seasons of Glee, I thought the season 4 premiere was extremely strong.
Everything from the music (wasn’t the biggest fan of “Americano/Dance Again”) and the storylines are right on spot so far.
The introduction of Marley and her cafeteria mom is a breath of fresh air for the show and is a rather timely storyline. And Marley stuns in her performances as well (as does Jake). I couldn’t be more excited for a character on this show than I am for her.
Rachel and Kurt have reunited (making my Kurt and Rachel Show dreams come true) and I’m looking forward to them taking NYC by storm together.
I was surprised to see many of the graduates missing from the premiere, but with the addition of new characters, it makes sense. »

The Lincoln Center, long known as the high-culture vanguard of New York City, has a film society. The Film Society of Lincoln Center (Fslc) host the New Directors / New Films festival. They tend to show a lot of documentaries, a lot of subtitled films - if you're lucky, you might catch a subtitled documentary! But some kind of genius behind the scenes has started a midnight summer film series; and this lineup rocks. The old lady at Lincoln Center is loosening her stays, in a big way. Kicking it off, this Friday, is a big-screen showing of Casey Pugh's Star Wars Uncut.
For those of you unfamiliar with Star Wars Uncut, it's a genuine labor of love created by hundreds of Star Wars fans. In 2009, Casey Pugh assigned a different fan (or group) fifteen seconds of the film Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope to remake in whatever fashion they chose. »

Well, there’s a much bigger audience for this news than there was when I mentioned that the second of Lost Girl was coming, so hopefully there are a lot of you out there that are glad to hear that Season 3 is getting underway.
It’s timely news as well, now that Syfy kicked off Eureka! last night, which hopefully gave Lost Girl even more of a boost. It’s also timely, because I know there are some folks out there who started to wonder when Syfy began talking about Season 2 of a rebroadcast show that didn’t actually have a Season 3 yet.
I love Syfy for airing the show, but it’s tricky for some fans who may find themselves unsure how much they want to invest in a show, when the network you’re watching it on isn’t really in control of what happens.
At any rate, »

This is a first-person piece from Ted Leonsis, founder and chairman of SnagFilms (and parent company of Indiewire). He asked if he could have the floor to lay out why he believes digital distribution platforms define the future for indie films. And while as a principal of SnagFilms he clearly has a horse in this race, his perspective echoes points that others have made on our site (including this week's very popular piece written by Greenburg Traurig partner Steven Beer.) How does all of this square with your thoughts on indie distribution? Tell us in the comments. -- The Editors Sunday marked the end of the Sundance Film Festival, the traditional launching point for a new year of independent films. I didn’t go to Park City this year, as I had when my films "Nanking" and "Kicking It" were in the festival, but I read the extensive coverage from Indiewire and others with interest. »
