“Fleabag” Gets Second Season

21 March 2017 8:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Fleabag

We haven’t seen the last of “Fleabag,” thank goddess. The series’ star and creator, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, has confirmed that a second season of the pitch-black comedy is in the works. The bad news? We’re going to have to wait quite some time to see the horrifying — and hilarious — ways our favorite deadpan protagonist continues to fuck up her life. According to RadioTimes.com, the show’s sophomore season is expected to begin filming in November and won’t be broadcast until 2018. “We are all trying to make it work and have the same team back,” Waller-Bridge said.

Inspired by Waller-Bridge’s one-woman stage show of the same name, “Fleabag” is set in London and centers on a self-destructive young woman (Waller-Bridge) who owns a guinea pig-themed café. Don’t let Fleabag’s job give you the wrong impression — she’s not twee. At all. “I always want to go darker, and I’m always being advised to stay on the lighter side,” Waller-Bridge has said of her writing.

As we previously observed, Fleabag might project an air of randy confidence, but she really uses sex for validation and self-medication. She makes innuendo-laden, off-putting jokes to anyone and everyone, hits on the falling-down drunk woman she thoughtfully puts into a cab, and breaks up with her boyfriend on a whim because she knows he’ll always clean the flat before moving out. She’s a mess — and she knows it. The first season sees her dealing with her mother’s death, her evil stepmother (Olivia Colman, “Broadchurch”), her perfectionist sister (Sian Clifford, “Midsomer Murders”), her emotionally unavailable dad (Bill Paterson, “Outlander”), and the possibly-accidental suicide of her best friend and business partner (Jenny Rainsford, “About Time”). The season finale of the BBC Three/ Amazon series proved that Fleabag isn’t a reliable narrator, particularly when it comes to her late Bff’s tragic death.

“I really wanted to hide a tragedy in a comedy and I really wanted to trick people,” Waller-Bridge has said. “I love the idea of disarming an audience through comedy and making them feel safe, and in turn making them vulnerable to twists and turns that they might not be expecting from a character. It was one of the most important things I was trying to maintain in the TV show.”

News of a second season doesn’t come as a total shock. Before the first season aired, Waller-Bridge hinted, “We cracked it open so that she would be able to have a life beyond it and also there are so many more stories and story strands and character strands to come out of this series.”

It seems like 2018 will be a huge year for Waller-Bridge. In addition to the second season of “Fleabag,” we can expect a new series from the multi-hyphenate: BBC America’s “Killing Eve.” Based on the “Villanelle” novella series by Luke Jennings, the show centers on Eve, a fiercely intelligent security services operative who dreams of leaving her desk job behind to be a spy, and Villanelle, an elegant and proficient murderer. Waller-Bridge will serve as showrunner on the series.

Fleabag” Gets Second Season was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Broadchurch series 3 episode 4 review

20 March 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Mar 20, 2017

This review contains spoilers.

Trish Winterman’s rape may be at the centre of Broadchurch series three, but around it, a thought-provoking case file is being compiled on sex, power and the ways straight male sexuality can harm women and girls.

By placing story threads about online porn, sleazy pin-ups, adultery, teen sexting (if that’s what Daisy’s storyline turns out to be), even dating apps—adjacent to the attack on Trish, this series tacitly prompts us to consider the relationship between it all.

The tacitness is key to its success. Without pounding a podium or shaking a fist, writer Chris Chibnall is building a recognisable »

Doctor Who: Steven Moffat on his advice for Chris Chibnall

16 March 2017 1:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Mar 16, 2017

The advice that Steven Moffat gave his replacement? Don't forget "to have a life while you’re running Doctor Who."

Say what you will about the Steven Moffat era (for the record, this writer has loved most of it), but there's one undeniably sad thing about The Moff's departure from Doctor Who: we won't have a reason to use this image of him playing with toys anymore. We really love this image.

Broadchurch series 3 episode 3 review

Hardy and Miller struggle to narrow down the suspects in the latest episode of Broadchurch series 3…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  171 movie sequels currently in the works

“It’s a scarily wide net right now” said Miller about the search for Trish’s rapist. She’s not wrong. This week’s episode was all about the depressingly high number of plausible suspects. Ian doesn’t have an alibi. Cath has reason to think it could have been Jim. We were left thinking it was Lucas. Then there’s Ed, Leo, the caterer, the band, the owner of Axehampton House and roughly fifty other men, all of whom have yet to be ruled out.

Ellie’s moment of apprehension about that hooded dog walker showed just how widely the suspicion spreads. The bleakness of the picture was summed up by Cath and Trish’s crumbling certainty about »

James Mangold confirms that there's a moment in The Wolverine that directly links to the ending of Logan. Spoilers.

Well, here’s thinking ahead for you. Co-writer and director James Mangold has confirmed over his Twitter account a theory put to him by a fan, that links his last two movies, The Wolverine and Logan.

It’s the part in The Wolverine when the character of Yukio – played by Rila Fukushima – has a premonition about Logan’s death. She explains to him that “I saw you die”, adding that “it’s not like I get a complete picture. More like looking through a keyhole. But I’m always right. All I can see is one part of a person’s life: their death. And I saw yours. »

For some time now I have known that Jonathan Pryce had replaced Michael Palin in Terry Gilliam's so infamous it's infamously infamous, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. I almost told you, but... let's just say that the production are trying to keep their heads down and I didn't want to knock them off their game.

Neil Gaiman's American Gods: Folio Society Edition review

Aliya Whiteley Mar 10, 2017

The Folio Society Edition of Neil Gaiman's American Gods, with illustrations by Dave McKean, is an object to cherish...

It seems a bit strange to start a review of one book by saying how good a completely different book is, but here it is: before I settled down to read the Folio Society's new edition of American Gods I was reading Christopher de Hamel's 2016 (non-fiction) Meetings With Remarkable Manuscripts. It describes the fascinating history of some of the few medieval manuscripts left in the world, but it also goes into detail about what those books look like now, and what it feels like to touch them, smell them, and turn the pages. It's a love letter to the book as an object that continues to exist through time, and so I was in the mindset to appreciate exactly what it is the Folio Society does when »

Elle review

9 March 2017 3:34 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director Paul Verhoeven directs Isabelle Huppert in the disturbing drama-thriller, Elle. Here's our review of a darkly effective movie...

To sum up Paul Verhoeven’s latest film up in one word, it’s toothsome. More nuanced, unpredictable and slow-burning than the Dutch director’s American movies - RoboCop, Total Recall, Basic Instinct and so on - it’s nevertheless as confrontational and blackly funny as anything he’s ever made.

Not that Elle provides obvious material for a black comedy. In its opening scene, well-to-do Parisian businesswoman Michele (Isabelle Huppert) is violently assaulted in her own house by a man wearing a ski mask. Evidently in shock, Michele picks herself up and carries on as though nothing’s happened; she clears up some broken crockery, calls a locksmith to secure the windows and doors, »

If last week’s sensitive opener was all about establishing empathy with Broadchurch’s traumatised subject, then this week’s was focused on getting the crime drama machinery up and running. Hardy and Miller collected evidence and interviewed leads in an instalment designed not to leave us shaken and raw, but with a list of suspects and a hunch. Right now, mine says that cocky Leo attacked Trish (a good-looking young man assaulting a fifty-year-old woman makes the clearest point that rape is about power and not sex) but then like Miller, I too am never in the mood for swaggery young shits.

U.K. Broadcaster ITV Wins Retransmission Court Case

6 March 2017 6:04 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

British broadcaster ITV has won a court battle with streaming service TVCatchup.com, which has been retransmitting its broadcasts without permission. The case comes as ITV prepares for a fight over retransmission fees this summer with British cable operator Virgin Media.

TVCatchup.com had been offering ITV channels, as well as those of the U.K.’s Channel 4 and Channel 5, for free online. ITV, backed by the other two networks, challenged this at the European Court of Justice.

The court said TVCatchup.com was not exempt from European Union copyright rules that allow free retransmission of public service channels via cable.

An ITV spokesperson said: “We are delighted that the European Court has ruled that our channels should not be retransmitted online or on cable without our authorization.

“This finding recognizes the vital importance of intellectual property protection in maximizing investment in original U.K. TV content and preventing free-riding.”

What a difficult business it must be having ITV as a friend. Brightly new-pin sharp some days, radiating intelligence; the next day a bleary, weary fright of a mess, both cock-boastful and wheedlingly needy. On one hand, the channel continues to produce some of the finest drama currently on show on, yes, the planet. On the other, the channel continues to showboat its contempt for news and current affairs by not only moving News at Ten to 10.30 but, now weaving like a drunk trying to remove his trousers, replacing it with The Nightly Show.
