Star Wars with Arrested Development Narration

Though Ron Howard may best be known for his time spent as a child actor playing young Opie Taylor on The Andy Griffith Show, he’s also very well known for directing films such Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind and The Da Vinci Code. Soon he’ll be known for taking over the Star Wars spin-off that is focusing on a young Han Solo after directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller were let go from the production following creative differences.

But Ron Howard was also the executive producer of the comedy series Arrested Development, not to mention the show’s narrator, adding an interesting meta layer to the cult favorite show that was canceled by FOX before being revived years later by Netflix. Now some clever editing has taken some of Ron Howard’s voiceover from Arrested Development and applied it to the original Star Wars trilogy giving us Arrested Rebellion. Read More »

The Gifted Trailer

While Marvel Studios is preparing to play with their weak-sauce version of mutants in the form of Inhumans over at ABC (which doesn’t look very good at all), it looks like FOX might be the place to go if you’re looking for a better angle on people who just so happen to have superpowers.

The Gifted is a new series written by Matt Nix (Burn Notice), directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men, X-Men: Days of Future Past), both also service as executive producers alongside X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner, X-Men franchise writer Simon Kinberg, as well as Jessica Jones and Daredevil producers Jeff Loeb and Jim Chory. It’s been coined as an X-Men series, but that’s not entirely accurate because, in this series, the X-Men have disappeared for reasons unknown, leaving other mutants to fend for themselves as a government organization hunts them down and prosecutes them for using their powers.

FOX brought The Gifted to San Diego Comic-Con to show off some new footage from the series, and they also debuted a new trailer introducing us to the mutants who will be on the run in this promising new comic book series coming to TV this fall. Read More »

Family Guy Tribute to Adam West

Pop culture lost an icon in early June when Batman television series star Adam West passed away at age 88 after a battle with leukemia. The internet paid endless respect to the man who was the first encounter many fans had with The Caped Crusader. Now another tribute comes from the show that kept Adam West a household name, even for those who may not have known who he was.

Family Guy made Adam West into quite the character on the FOX animated series by creating an exaggerated version of the actor as the mayor of Quahog, the Rhode Island town that the Griffin family calls home. The animated version of West was kooky, not too bright, and always one of the best parts of the show, and the Family Guy crew wanted to pay tribute to the actor with a montage of his best moments from the series.

Futurama Leaving Netflix

Fans of Futurama who have enjoyed watching the animated series over the years on Netflix will be disappointed to hear that the show is leaving the streaming service next month. When June is over, nearly all of Futurama will be removed from Netflix’s library.

Here’s why Futurama is leaving Netflix next month. Read More »

24 legacy cancelled

It looks like 24: Legacy has lost the race against time. Fox cancelled the waning reboot of the mega-popular 24 series originally anchored by Kiefer Sutherland, taking away Legacy star Corey Hawkins‘ chance to catch up with Jack Bauer.

But while that’s the end of 24: Legacy‘s time, it’s not the end for the 24 franchise. Fox is already looking to develop a completely new incarnation of the series — without any Legacy characters.

the gifted tv spot

In case you forgot The Gifted was happening, here’s another trailer for the Fox show centering around an “ordinary” family who discover that their two teen kids have mutant abilities. The Strucker family, led by True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer and Joss Whedon regular Amy Acker (Angel, Dollhouse, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), go on the run, joining a cabal of underground mutants who are hunted by the Sentinels.

The 30-second TV spot is all about the chase, and gives some hints about a certain offspring of a certain magnetic-powered X-Men villain.

New Girl Final Season

Amidst all the renewals and cancellations that television networks have announced over the past week, one show surprisingly remained on the bubble.

New Girl has been one of FOX’s hit comedies ever since it debuted back in 2011. Though the series was initially thought to be a shoo-in to get renewed for a seventh season, the fate of the show recently took a turn for the worse and it came close to cancellation. Thankfully, at the last minute, a deal was struck for a shortened seventh and final season.

Find out details on the New Girl final season below, but beware of spoilers for the end of the sixth season. Read More »

FOX

Upfronts week continues with the trailers for the new shows coming to the FOX network in the 2017-2018 season. We’ve already seen the trailer for Seth MacFarlane‘s sci-fi comedy series The Orville, which looks like a solid spoof of the classic Star Trek series, as well as Bryan Singer‘s X-Men series The Gifted. But FOX also unveiled trailers for the comedy series Ghosted starring Adam Scott and Craig Robinson, the procedural drama 9-1-1 from creator Ryan Murphy, the medical drama The Resident with Captain America: Civil War star Emily VanCamp, and an airline comedy called LA to Vegas from executive producers Adam McKay and Will Ferrell.
