Hulu sixth season of Community

A great many people watch Community via Hulu — it’s one of the streaming service’s most popular offerings — and now Hulu may be the home for the near-mythical sixth season of the show. When the show was canceled by NBC there was some talk that a place like Hulu could be the home for one last season. And while comments from the show’s creator Dan Harmon made that seem like a  pretty distant possibility, conversations are taking place.

At this point that’s all it seems to be — like Hulu buying Sony TV a drink and slyly being all “so, you think you might wanna make a sixth season together?” But that’s better than nothing. Read More »

The man without fear has a new persona. Marvel’s Daredevil, coming to Netflix in 2015, recently switched showrunners from Drew Goddard to Steven S. DeKnight. The latter’s first big decision is who will play the title character and he’s chosen another TV veteran.

Netflix bug

It’s a favorite complaint of cinephiles that there just don’t seem to be any original ideas left in Hollywood anymore. But Netflix, it seems, has plenty to spare. Or at least a bug within the service’s works does.

A glitch has led the system to combine synopses of completely separate movies, leading to delightfully bizarre mash-up summaries like “A reprogrammed Terminator arrives from the future to protect young John Connor from a relentless shape-shifting cyborg gumball machine.” How’s that for an unexpected plot twist? Read some of the bug’s greatest hits after the jump.

Wet Hot American Summer TV show

For years, director David Wain and many of the actors involved in his film Wet Hot American Summer have talked about a sequel. The original film, which featured an incredible roster of then-up and coming talent as counselors at summer camp, even ends with a joke that sets up a sequel, in which the counselors would reunite years after the end of the film. Several original cast members, however, such as Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks, now command more money per film than the entire budget of Wet Hot American Summer, and Universal has been totally disinterested in financing another film. But what about a Wet Hot American Summer TV show?

Now there is talk of a TV show on Netflix. It would not be a sequel, but a ten-episode version of the prequel story that the creators have discussed on occasion over the last couple years.  Read More »

Orange Is the New Black third season

The second season of Orange Is the New Black doesn’t begin until June 6, but Netflix has already committed to a third season. Just as the second season was announced before the first even ran, Netflix is showing great confidence in the show by setting up a third set of 13 episodes.

Taylor Schilling will return as Piper Kerman, in the continuing dramatization of Kerman’s memoir recounting her time in prison. While Laura Prepon has a small role in the second season, she should be back as a regular cast member for the third season. Beyond that, we’ll have to get through the upcoming second season to see who else will be back, and what new characters might be expected for the third outing.   Read More »
