Westworld Season 2 Trailer Promises A Host-Human War

Our first look at season 2 of HBO’s acclaimed sci-fi western Westworld has now arrived, courtesy of the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con. We’ve been hearing more and more about the production in recent weeks, like the casting of a few new characters as well as hints that the Hosts would be turning on their human creators in the upcoming episodes, so it’s great to finally have a trailer.

Set to the disturbingly cheerful yet totally fitting song choice of “I Gotta Be Me” by Sammy Davis Jr., the teaser shows a much different Westworld from the one seen at the end of the first season. If you recall, the season 1 finale saw the likes of Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Maeve (Thandie Newton) achieve autonomy and break out of their conditioning and programming. Going by the trailer, it looks like Dolores will waste no time

Jimmy Fallon Gets a Mustache on The Tonight Show

Jimmy Fallon Gets a Mustache on The Tonight Show
What do you think of Jimmy Fallon's new look? Since Memorial Day weekend, the Tonight Show host had been growing a beard. "You can't just start with the mustache. You have to have the beard and then shave that off and have the mustache," Fallon explained June 6. "Because this is going to be the summer of 'stache for me." Fallon's facial hair was finally thick enough by Thursday's show, so he invited Russell Cordeiro from Persons of Interest in Brooklyn to give him a makeover. As Cordeiro got to work, Fallon asked about varous mustache styles. "Everybody seemed to like the handlebar mustache so much. It's actually become very popular," Cordeiro said. "Whether it...

[Comic Execution] 2/14 – ‘The Fuse’, ‘The Mercenary Sea’, ‘City: Mind In The Machine’

Science fiction, man. I love it. But comic books make me want to hate it. I mean, I get that comic books aren’t really a literary medium. They can be, but they’re read mostly by people avoiding the commitment and sometimes challenge of a more rigorous, if still speculative, format, namely prose. Now I’m not going to pretend that prose Sf&F is always a step up from comics and, in fact, there’s pretty much an equal ratio of turds to gold (there’s some kind of law for this, I think). But so much more effort is put into the “science” part of science fiction in literature than it is in comics, and that seems to be an unfortunate result of the assumption (perhaps correctly) most comic book writers make that their audience isn’t interested in “harder” sci-fi or fantasy. But they try at it anyway sometimes,

New TV Season Breakdown: CBS

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fourth announced. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on CBS.

With CBS leading in viewers by the widest margin of any network in 23 years, the network has little need to refresh its line-up this year - especially with last season's successes like "2 Broke Girls" and "Persons of Interest" adding to a solid run of hits in recent years.

Yet it's not resting on its laurels, ordering six new shows and shifting four existing shows around the schedule to shore up its weak points, in the process teaming its two biggest comedies "Big Bang Theory" and "Two and a Half Men" on the one night.

Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't be seen include cop drama "The Widow Detective", various comedies about twenty

Director Jj Abrams and Screenwriter Billy Ray Team Up for a Mystery Movie For Paramount

Cloverfield and Super 8 director Jj Abrams has teamed up with screenwriter Billy Ray for a mystery movie from Bad Robot for Paramount Pictures, reports Deadline. Details are scarce but the report says that the movie will be a mystery adventure.

Ray has penned the script for the re-visioning of Peter Pan starring Channing Tatum and is currently writing the screenplay for the 24 movie. Ray will also write and direct a remake of The Secret in their Eyes. As for Abrams, he’s got a lot of new shows on his plate.

New Girl! All My Children! Up All Night! The X Factor! The TV Addict Week in Rewind

And the #1 Reason America Doesn’t Stand a Chance: An astounding 28.7 million of them tuned into the highly unfunny season premiere of Two And A Half Men.

Reason to Have Hope for the Future of America: Despite months of insisting his new show wasn’t simply a rip-off of his previous gig, Simon Cowell’s much-heralded X Factor was a bomb… at least when compared to the ratings garnered by American Idol.

Ratings Shocker: Despite being available on iTunes and Hulu before making its television debut, Fox’s New Girl drew a bigger audience than lead-in Glee, stunning naysayers and thrilling lovers of Zooey Deschanel everywhere.

Train Wreck You Couldn’t Pay Us To Watch: The suddenly-everywhere Courtney Stodden and her 51-year-old hubby Doug Hutchinson are reportedly shopping a reality show which the 17-year-old’s mom/manager says will “show people what they can teach each other from different generations.

Morning Meme: Lance Bass For NY Marriage, John Cena Is Just Misunderstood.

I’m going to do something I don’t normally do: Go over to this disgusting, cowardly, unsigned editorial against New York marriage equality in the NY Post and read the comments. Because the comments are great.

One of those Real Housewives people, Bethenny Frankel, is filming a talk show pilot, and evidently Ellen DeGeneres is backing it. While I wish Ellen all the best, I have Bravo blocked on my cable box just so I never come in contact with these women. Now they’re spreading.

Evidently piercing cats to make them look goth is a thing. It’s also animal cruelty according to the judge.

Remember those gay, musical monster movies from your youth? No? You will if you catch I Was a Teenage Werebear at Frameline. Oh, and by the way, I’m cheating on you guys.

Lost Creator J.J. Abrams To Guest on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

=This is awesome. J.J. Abrams is one of my favorite people in television right now. He created (or co-created) two of my all-time favorite shows, Lost and Fringe. That's on top of his involvement with classics such as Alias and Felicity and his involvement with the upcoming new shows Alcatraz and Persons of Interest, both of whom seem to be the crowning gems of the fall television season in a way Undercovers was not. He's also directed the new[...]

Insert Credit: "L.A. Noire"

Insert Credit:
Insert Credit endeavors to suss out where you should be allotting your video game allowance, sifting out a single title from many and crowning it as The One Game You Need to Get This Week. Don't consider these reviews, gentle reader. Rather, think of Insert Credit as a mix of hands-on time, informed opinion and intuition.

For the week of May 18, 2011, you should insert credit into: "L.A. Noire".

For the most part, Rockstar Games' protagonists have been rebels, people who object to the order of society and/or find themselves on its fringes. If they do make their way to the center, it's by virtue of bloody reprisals and vengeful comeuppance. From the nameless punk criminal in "Grand Theft Auto 3" to put-upon boarding school student Jimmy Hopkins in "Bully," the outsider status of Rockstar's hero characters probably accounts for a lot of their fan base.
