house of cards season 5

Well, that’s one way to celebrate Inauguration Day.

As I type this sentence, Donald Trump is on the cusp of taking the oath of office and becoming the 45th President of the United States, so Netflix saw this as an opportune time to release the first House of Cards season 5 teaser. There is no actual footage here, no glimpse of Kevin Spacey‘s scheming Frank Underwood – just foreboding imagery, specifically an American flag being flown upside down…a sign of distress.

powerless trailer

The version of Powerless seen in the newest trailer is a big departure from the pilot that screened at Comic-Con last year. Shortly after that presentation, NBC retooled their comedy series about ordinary people living in the DC comic book universe, with Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker stepping in after the departure of original showrunner Ben Queen. A show about the employees of an insurance company specializing in collateral damage caused by superhero brawls became a show about the scientists and engineers who work on technology to protect citizens from those superhero brawls in the first place. Whether or not this change makes for a better show remains to be seen, but you can watch this new footage and start making judgments, should you desire.

good omens miniseries

Years ago, director/genius Terry Gilliam set out to adapt Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s brilliant novel Good Omens into a feature film starring Robin Williams and Johnny Depp. It never came to pass. Other versions, including a television adaptation by Terry Jones, briefly appeared before vanishing again. But good things sometimes come to those who wait and Amazon and BBC Studios are teaming up to make a Good Omens miniseries for 2018, with Gaiman himself writing every script and serving as showrunner.

american crime story lewinsky scandal

2016 ended up, somehow, being the year of the O.J. Simpson trial. While O.J.: Made in America was one of the best documentaries of the year, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson was one of the best television shows of the year, with both projects capturing the same material from different (and complementary!) angles. It was a strong start for the latest Ryan Murphy production and if future seasons maintain a similar level of quality, the show as a whole could be an all-timer.

We now know that one future season of American Crime Story will tackle another one of the most infamous moments of the ’90s: the Monica Lewinsky scandal and the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.

m night shyamalan stranger things

Before they created Stranger Things for Netflix and won the hearts of everyone with a login to that omnipresent streaming service, Matt and Ross Duffer worked as writers on Fox’s Wayward Pines. And working on that series meant working with M. Night Shyamalan, who directed the pilot and served as an executive producer alongside Chad Hodge. And now that the Duffer Brothers are the ones in charge of a successful television series, Shyamalan would like them to return the favor and let him helm an episode of their show.
