The debut of the 40th season of NBC’s Saturday Night Live was broadcast over the weekend and Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt hosted the premiere episode which included a skit showing the future of Marvel movies and how the superhero studio just can’t fail — no matter what they release. The trailer lampoons Ant-Man and reveals Marvel’s future slate of superheroes you’ve never heard of, that you won’t want to miss on the big screen. And as you can see in the header image above, it features a reference to the other Disney-owned mega franchise Star Wars. Watch the SNL Marvel trailer parody embedded after the jump, alongside another great skit from the episode featuring Pratt as a He-Man figure come to life.

The Internet has created a lot of terrible things but Bad Lip Readings aren’t one of them. It’s one of the few online video trends that takes a lot of skill and can have absolutely hilarious, memorable and quotable results. Plus they have a very broad appeal. The first ones I remember seeing were of political figures saying the most off-the-wall, heinous and crazy things. Fun for the whole family.
One of the newest is an almost better juxtaposition. It’s a scene from the fourth season of The Walking Dead between Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Beth (Emily Kinney) that was originally about one thing and has been turned into a crazy party. Check out the funny Walking Dead Bad Lip Reading video below. Read More »

As far as entertainment goes, $7.99 per month for a basic Netflix streaming subscription seems like a relative bargain. Still, you’re only getting your money’s worth if you’re actually using it. So how much are you using it, really?
According to a new study, probably quite a lot. A research group has determined that the average Netflix user watches 93.2 minutes, or 1.55 hours, of content on the service per day. That’s a 350% increase over 2011, when Netflix was getting crap for their decision to raise prices.

TNT is setting up a handful of new pilots such as Shooter, Titans, and Neil Armstrong miniseries. Now the latest pilot order from the network involves Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV and James Frey’s company Full Fathom Five. The show is called Lumen, described as “a fantasy vehicle about a family locked in an alternate world.” In fact, the Lumen pilot sounds like it trades on some pretty familiar fantasy/sci-fi premises, as that “alternate world” is one much like the place described by a popular novel writer.

Real Genius, the 1985 college campus comedy starring Val Kilmer, is a smart and cheeky guide to doing right by the old coming of age comedy structure. So, naturally, a new Real Genius TV show that will relaunch the title is dropping most of the signature elements. That’s how things sound at least, as the new show will be a workplace comedy rather than a school-set story. Read More »
