TV Imports: The Best Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Acquired Series You’re Not Watching

24 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In this era of “Peak TV” there doesn’t seem to be enough time to bother with drama and comedy imports. But while there are more than enough American shows to binge, it would be a mistake to bypass great foreign TV. After all, that would mean missing out on fan favorites like “Doctor Who,” “Orphan Black,” “Downton Abbey” and “Sherlock.”

Foreign TV has spawned hit U.S. adaptations like “Homeland” and “The Office,” as well as pale imitations of the original. Remember the failed American versions of “The It Crowd” and “Coupling”? Yeah, we’d like to forget ’em as well.

From ‘Manchester By the Sea’ to the Super Bowl: How a Rising Cinematographer Landed a Major Budweiser Ad

6 February 2017 12:53 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If the Budweiser Super Bowl ad “Born The Hard Way” reminded you of the work of Paul Thomas Anderson, that’s not a coincidence. The 60-second commercial that tells the story of Anheuser-Busch co-founder Adolphus Busch’s emigration from Germany to St. Louis, Missouri was inspired by Anderson’s “The Master” and “There Will Be Blood,” according to director of photography Jody Lee Lipes.

The cinematographer of “Manchester by the Sea” and “Trainwreck,” Lipes and the commercial’s director, Chris Sargent, also drew inspiration from Francis Ford Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now,” Terrence Malick’s “Days of Heaven” and “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” Sargent hired Lipes for the Budweiser ad after the pair worked together on commercials for Asics and Acura.

We're Willing to Bet You Haven't Watched the Best Romantic Comedy on Netflix Yet

10 January 2017 3:50 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Last year, I was scrolling through Netflix desperate for something to watch on a Saturday night when I came across a show called Scrotal Recall. I paused for a variety of reasons. 1.) The name was probably the most absurd TV show title I'd heard possibly since Tom Cavanagh's Love Monkey in the mid-2000s, 2.) the thumbnail featured Antonia Thomas, one of my favorite actresses from the UK cult hit Misfits, and 3.) again, Scrotal Recall, people. The premise seemed interesting enough — a British 20-something discovers he has an Std and must notify all the women he's ever slept with — but then, as I'm sure a lot of other people did, I kept scrolling. Fast-forward to last Saturday night, when I once again found myself looking for a new TV show. The first thing that popped up was a banner advertising the second season of a show called Lovesick, which I »

Author: David Sztypuljak

Ahead of BAFTA Television Craft Award winning Fortitude Season 2 which (set to broadcast on Sky Atlantic Thursday 26th January), we’ve been sent this rather amusing little promotional film which sees series newcomer Dennis Quaid introducing us to the killer destination!

The second season sees 10 episodes of the Sky Original drama hit the small screens. It takes place 9 weeks after the first season with the Arctic holiday destination returning to normal, and the contamination contained many of the residents have left out of fear. Sheriff Dan Anderson (Richard Dormer) is missing, presumed dead – leaving what remains of the town in a state of lawlessness.

Only Govenor Hildur Odegard (Sofie Gråbøl), crab fisherman Michael Lennox (Quaid) and a handful of others remain, each with their own reason for doing so. And when the »

Elaine Cassidy Interview – No Offence return + musical Strangeways Here We Come

4 January 2017 5:09 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Guest

Right from its opening scene – where a suspect is chased under a bus and his head squashed like a jam doughnut – No Offence marked itself out as a gripping cop show like no other. The brainchild of ShamelessPaul Abbott, it smashes together lightning-paced police drama with dark comedy and lashings of soap opera. At the centre is impulsive detective constable Dinah Kowalska, played by Elaine Cassidy, who we caught up with on the phone ahead of the second series beginning tonight (January 4th) on Channel 4. Key to No Offence’s success, she told us, was the Paul Abbott factor.

“It is like when you really like a band and you are waiting for their next album,” she said. “No Offence felt like his next album after Shameless, even though he has written films and stuff since. Paul’s writing is unique. It is just about three degrees left of reality. »
