transparent season 3 trailer

The conversation about streaming television often seems to begin and end with Netflix, which is a bit of a shame. While they may be the biggest player in the game (and have the library of original programming to match), the competition is nothing to scoff at. Take at look Amazon, who have just dropped a new trailer for Transparent season three and a trio of new shows: the law drama Goliath, Tig Notaro‘s One Mississippi, and the dark comedy Fleabag. If you’re steaming world begins and ends with one destination, you’re missing out.

Hulu Will No Longer Offer Free Streaming

Hulu commercial free

For years now, Hulu has been a boon to cord-cutters. As long as you’re willing to wait a bit for new episodes and then sit through lots of ads when they do, Hulu is the rare place to watch TV online legally and for free. Or at least it was until now. The company has announced it’s moving to an all-subscription model, eliminating ad-supported free streaming altogether.

However, there’s no need for panic just yet. While Hulu is getting rid of free streaming, Yahoo is launching Yahoo View, a service which will provide recent episodes with ads but for free, just like Hulu used to.  Read More »

fearless trailer

The late Roger Ebert famously called movies “empathy machines,” writing on how they allow you to experience other lives and new perspectives in a fashion that most other art forms cannot. I find this to be especially true with great documentaries, which can take subject matter that doesn’t seem like it would interest you at all and blow your mind wide open with the details of a world you would normally never think about.

Case in point: this new Netflix documentary series about professional bull riders. I didn’t know I wanted to watch a documentary series about professional bull riders, but here we are. It’s called Fearless and there’s a trailer and everything.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

The Get Down trailer

Last month, HBO cancelled Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl after already having renewed it for a second season. But if you’re mourning the loss of your window into the 1970s New York music scene, fear not — Baz Luhrmann‘s The Get Down is arriving in just a few weeks. Though to be fair, this 1970s New York-set music drama looks pretty damn different from that other 1970s New York-set music drama.

The Get Down unfolds at the dawn of punk, hip-hop, and disco, following the “young, scrappy, and hungry” types at the forefront of those movements. The cast is loaded with intriguing up-and-comers like Justice SmithHerizen GuardiolaShameik Moore, and Skylan Brooks, most of whom are trying to make it in music one way or another. Watch the first The Get Down trailer after the jump, but be warned it may make you really frustrated that you can’t watch the show right freakin’ now. Read More »

Con Man

The layers of meta are thick with Con ManAlan Tudyk created and stars in the series about an actor famous for starring in a brilliant-but-cancelled sci-fi classic, with Nathan Fillion playing his good friend and former co-star. The show follows said actor as he tours geeky conventions — you know, not unlike the one Tudyk and Fillion stopped by this year to tease season 2 of Con Man.

It should come as no surprise that former Firefly stars Tudyk and Fillion got the warmest of receptions in Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con, where they offered audiences a glimpse of not just Con Man season 2 but Con Man: The Game and the Spectrum comic book series (inspired by the show-within-a-show that Fillion and Tudyk’s characters used to star in). Below, read our Con Man Comic-Con panel recap.  Read More »

Fans were first introduced to the indestructible bartender in last year’s Jessica Jones, but this fall he’ll branch out on his own to become the hero of Harlem.

Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb was on hand to moderate the panel, with showrunner Cheo Coker and actors Mike Colter, Mahershala AliAlfre WoodardFrank WhaleyTheo Rossi, and Simone Missick all onstage to tell you why Luke Cage could be your next new favorite show. Below, read a rundown of everything we learned at the Luke Cage Comic-Con panel, including who all the new villains and allies are, and what makes Luke Cage unique in the Marvel universe. (And don’t forget to check out the first Luke Cage teaser trailer and our Luke Cage footage recap if you haven’t already.)
