Watch Our Cartoon President

Since every single day is a waking nightmare thanks to the actions of Donald Trump and his bumbling administration, some good old fashioned satire is exactly what we need to help us get through the next three years.

Showtime has teamed with Stephen Colbert to deliver an animated series called Our Cartoon President, providing us with a comedic take on the Donald Trump presidency. Since the administration itself is already laughable, mocking them satirically has proven to be a bit of a challenge (as evidenced by Saturday Night Live‘s hit or miss sketches on the matter), but this show looks to be wacky enough to bring some levity to the situation in Washington D.C.

And you can watch the pilot episode for free right now, even if you don’t subscribe to Showtime.  Read More »

Billions season 3 trailer

If you’ve been wondering what Paul Giamatti has been up to lately (since that’s clearly a thought that crosses everyone’s minds every once in a while), the answer is apparently, “Making multiple seasons of the Showtime drama Billions.” The show’s third season is about to debut, and the network has released a new trailer teasing the high stakes scheming between Giamatti’s character and his rival, who’s played by Damian Lewis.

And while they’re at it, Showtime has also released a new featurette for the seventh season of Homeland, which features stars Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin, and more talking about how the new season “seems to have become more of a Polaroid of the world we’re living in.” Watch both videos below.

Twin Peaks Season 4

Showtime President David Nevins spoke with the Television Critics Association this weekend and inevitably he was pressed for Twin Peaks news by the reporters in attendance.

The Showtime boss certainly hasn’t give up on the prospect of more Twin Peaks.

Here’s how to get the online film community all riled up for at least 13 hours: put a TV show on your list of best movies of 2017.

It set Twitter ablaze, with film and TV critics arguing over what constitutes a TV show or a movie. It asks a huge question: should profoundly great television be considered a film?

Twin Peaks season 4

Earlier this summer, in the midst of the madness of Twin Peaks: The Return, Showtime president David Nevins told us that he wouldn’t be having any conversations about a potential fourth season until after The Return wrapped its 18-episode limited series run.

But the show came to a mystifying and haunting end in early September, so now that possibility is being raised. In a new interview, co-creator Mark Frost gave the latest update about his thoughts on whether or not we’ll see a Twin Peaks season 4.

And now Twin Peaks season 3 is about to make its way to Blu-ray, and it’s bringing a whole lot of damn fine special features with it. Get the Twin Peaks season 3 Blu-ray news below.
