‘Gilmore Girls’: That Ending Was Perfect, and We Need to Accept It

28 November 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[“Gilmore Girls” fans have been waiting to hear the “final four words” for almost a decade, but it turns out not everyone was ready for them. Below, IndieWire TV Critic Ben Travers (a casual fan), Senior Film Critic David Ehrlich (a “Gilmore Girls” lifer), and TV Editor Liz Shannon Miller (who only recently binged the series) interpret the extreme feelings experienced in those final seconds and try to find an answer as to how we can all move forward, together. Be warned: the discussion contains spoilers for “A Year in the Life,” up through those final four words, and for more on the ending, be sure to read Senior Editor Hanh Nguyen’s report on what’s next.]

Ben: While it’s arguably belittling to “A Year in the Life” — which I liked quite a bit overall — to start asking, “What’s next?” so soon after completing the six-hour binge, I think the heavily teased “final four words” demand that we start there. To me, the reveal of Rory’s pregnancy felt like a classic cliffhanger ending setting up more narrative to come. And because so much coverage (including our own) led us to believe Netflix’s revival was here to provide the proper ending to a series denied one during its initial run, such a major last-second reveal could easily be seen as misleading to fans who were tuning in for some closure. There’s been no word from Amy Sherman-Palladino, »

Chasing Destiny Premiere Recap: Did Kelly Rowland's Girl-Group Search Have You Jumpin' Jumpin'?

6 April 2016 12:14 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“I don’t want reality stars,” declared Kelly Rowland at the start of Bet’s new girl-group competition series Chasing Destiny. “I want stars.”

RelatedThe People v. O.J. Simpson Recap: The Verdict Is In — Plus: Grade the Finale

And just like that, the former Destiny’s Child phenom-turned-r&B solo star had my attention. But would the rest of the show live up to Kelly’s “talent-first, drama-last” mantra?

Based on its deeply engrossing, frequently sweet and exceedingly honest opening hour, I’d say the answer appears to be “Yes!”

Rowland, of course, was terrific in her sole season as »

Massive cost overruns, script rewrites and an angry Leonard Nimoy. Ryan charts the battle to make the original Star Trek movie...

After years in limbo, the rush to make a Star Trek movie suddely began in earnest on the 28th of March 1978. That day saw a lavish press conference arranged by Paramount president Michael Eisner, chairman Barry Diller and the entire cast of the original Star Trek series. Eisner announced to an assembled group of reporters that a film spin-off from the cult Trek TV show was finally going to be made. Its appropriately grand title - Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

The director, Eisner continued, would be Robert Wise - an industry veteran who was not only a safe pair of hands (he’d directed such hits as West Side Story and The Sound Of Music), but also had a proven track record with science fiction. »

Planet Of The Titans: the Star Trek movie that never was

14 March 2016 10:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 6, 2016

Rejected scripts and a revolving door of writers. Ryan looks back at Planet Of The Titans, the early Star Trek movie that never was...

It's March 1977, and there's a very odd party going on at Paramount. The champagne's flowing, the glasses are clinking, but the atmosphere's far from celebratory.

Writers Alan Scott and Chris Bryant, who for the past six months had been working on a Star Trek movie script, have decided to leave the project following numerous rewrites and conflicted ideas from producers.

Susan Sackett, who was Star Trek creator Gene Rodenberry's personal assistant at the time, was one of several people at that party. "The occasion was one of celebration," Sackett wrote in the seventh issue of Starlog magazine, "yet touched with the sadness of saying 'au revoir' to old friends."

Old friends though Scott and Bryant may have been, there are suggestions here and »
