30 Rock Netflix

All good things must come to an end, including Netflix titles. As September ends and gives way to October, so too does the tenure of several Netflix titles to make room for new ones.

star trek discovery trailer 1

Akiva Goldsman is no stranger to the minefield of fan franchises. Akiva Goldsman and I bonded when I interviewed him for Underground and shared my love for his maligned adaptation of Winter’s Tale. He survived the original Batman sequels and most recently headed up a writers room for Transformers: The Last Knight. He came aboard Star Trek: Discovery when Bryan Fuller left to focus on American Gods.

Star Trek: Discovery is set 10 years before The Original Series and tells a continuing serialized story involving the war between The Federation and Klingons. Goldsman spoke with /Film at the CBS party for the Television Critics Association.

Watchmen pilot

Earlier this week, Lost and The Leftovers co-creator Damon Lindelof posted an Instagram photo announcing “Day One” of work on his television adaptation of Watchmen, DC Comics’ famed 1980s limited series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. TV Line reports that HBO has now officially ordered a pilot and “back up scripts” for the show, but what might a Lindelof-led version of Watchmen actually be like? Let’s try to figure that out.

voltron legendary defender season 4 trailer

Merely two months after the third season of Voltron: Legendary Defender premiered on Netflix, a new trailer has already been released, teasing a fourth season that’s even closer on the horizon.

Anxiety over the missing fifth Paladin and a new Big Bad have evaporated — for the most part — with the team back together again and ready to give the war against the Galran Empire the ‘ole razzle dazzle. Those are Lance’s words, not mine.

Saturday Night Live Season 43

In just 10 days, we’ll be getting a brand new episode of Saturday Night Live to kick off the 43rd season of the landmark, late night sketch comedy series from NBC. Ryan Gosling has been tapped to host the season premiere with Jay-Z serving as musical guest, and we’ll see if the show can keep the momentum from the high ratings last season earned thanks to the lampooning of a certain spray tan president. While we’ll have no idea what sketches to expect until the night of, there is one way we know SNL will try to keep the hype around the show alive.

NBC has announced that every new episode of Saturday Night Live this season will air live from coast-to-coast, just as the final three episodes of the previous season did. That means everyone on the west coast will be watching the show live at the same time as everyone on the east coast, and so will everyone in between. But SNL fans have even more to look forward to this fall. Read More »

american horror story neighbors from hell

(Every week, we’re going to get the discussion going about American Horror Story: Cult by answering one important question: who is the main villain of the episode?)

Episode 3 of American Horror Story: Cult, titled “Neighbors From Hell,” began to connect every bloody event that has plagued Ally’s life since the election. But if AHS’s history tells us anything, it’s that we’re about to hit the point in the story where the season gets a bit muddied, clunky and weird. Is it possible AHS: Cult will follow that pattern? Maybe.

Honestly, though, we’re thankful season 7 has pivoted mostly away from its post-election hysteria angle. But the one thing that has quickly begun to test our patience is the overuse of Sarah Paulson’s cry-face. We know she has more to bring to Ally than just helpless tears. It’s about time she stops playing the victim.

channel zero no-end house

A new season of Channel Zero, one of the best horror shows you’re probably not watching, arrives tonight to give audiences the creeps.

While American Horror Story seems to receive all the attention once it arrives with a shrieking, confounding new season, the chilling, creeptastic Channel Zero exists on the fringes. Subtle, eerie and often surprisingly emotional, it’s the type of horror show that deserves far more buzz than it receives. Now, Channel Zero season 2 is here, featuring a first episode that’s better, and creepier, than 90% of most horror movies that hit the multiplex. Does the full Channel Zero season 2 manage to maintain the excitement of the first episode? Well, let’s talk about it.
