Lin-Manuel Miranda Drunk History

You might remember that over the summer Comedy Central announced that Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda had been recruited for the fourth season of their Emmy-winning series Drunk History. Just as everyone assumed or hoped, Miranda is telling the story of Alexander Hamilton and his rivalry with Aaron Burr. But this time, they’re being played by Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza and Arrested Development actress Alia Shawkat.

westworld episode 9 photos

Ever since the days of The Sopranos, HBO’s show have tended to treat the penultimate episode of each season as the main event, the chapter that brings every storyline to a climax or pays off some kind of major plot point. This trend has only gotten more noticeable in the age of Game of Thrones, where second-to-last episodes tend to completely shatter the show’s world, leaving the season finale to pick up the pieces and lay the groundwork for what lies ahead.

So with episode 9 of Westworld, titled “The Well-Tempered Clavier,” just days away, should we expect something absolutely huge to happen? Are there any clues in the new batch of images HBO has released from the episode?

westworld epsiode 8 ford

We are getting closer to that mysterious maze, yet we return with some more Westworld theories for you to consider before the penultimate episode of the HBO series. We take a look at a mind-blowing theory which suggests a connection between Dolores and Wyatt. Did Doctor Ford order Bernard to kill? Could Arnold have a much different appearance than we were led to believe? Might we have found the location of Westworld? Plus, a possible reason for the flies in Westworld and more speculation about another human who might be a host. All this and more, after the jump.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Honest Trailer

Once Thanksgiving is over, it’ll be full speed ahead towards Christmas. In fact, some Christmas specials will already start airing at the end of this week. But before one of them returns to TV, maybe you should let Honest Trailers remind you just how weird it is.

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer is a classic stop-motion animated Christmas special from the iconic Rankin/Bass Productions, and it’s a staple of many families’ holiday traditions. We usually mindlessly watch it, but if you ever pay attention to this special, you’ll realize just how weird it is.

Girls Season 6 Trailer and Crashing Season 1 Teaser

HBO’s current run of original programming is winding down before the end of the year. Westworld, Divorce and Insecure will all have their season finales in the next few weeks, but they’ll all be back with second seasons, presumably around the same time of the year in 2017. That means it’s time to look ahead at HBO’s original programming coming early next year, and that includes the end of one of their hit shows, and the first season for an all-new comedy series.

The final trailer for Lena Dunham‘s hit series Girls has arrived online along with the first trailer for Crashing, the new comedy series starring comedian and former late night host Pete Holmes. Watch them both after the jump. Read More »

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 12 Trailer

Early next year, we return to the city of brotherly love to see what kind of shenanigans the crew of Paddy’s Pub will be up to when the 12th season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres on FXX. It’s crazy to think that the series has been running this long, and it even has an order for its 13th and 14th seasons already placed. And if this new trailer for this season is an indicator, things are only going to get more out of hand.

A red-band It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 12 trailer has just popped up online, and it’s far more raunchy than anything we’ve seen from Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito. I’m talking about words that you normally don’t hear on cable channels other than HBO, Cinemax and Showtime, plus a couple of dildos, some discussion of being paid for sex and much more.

See all the madness below, but beware that the language is totally NSFW. Read More »

One of the best things about Westworld is that one viewing of each episode is never enough and I always discover new details and nuances in the days after my Monday morning spoiler reviews. One of the worst things about Westworld is that one viewing of each is never enough and smart people out in internet-land always discover new details and nuances that I completely missed, leading me to feel like a real idiot. In this case, I completely missed an interesting casting decision in this most recent episode, “Trace Decay,” and it may be another clue to deciphering the series’ complex timeline.

Spoilers for “Trace Decay” follow, of course.

Billy on the Street - Seth Rogen Death Prank

Comedian Billy Eichner is one of those entertainers that you either love or you hate. He’s boisterous, excitable, obnoxious, flamboyant, and I just love him for it. He enjoyed a stint on Parks and Recreation in the comedy show’s later seasons, but he’s probably best known for his show Billy on the Street. What started as a recurring Funny or Die series turned into a full fledged TV show on truTV, and one of the recent segments is one of the most awkwardly funny things you’ll watch today.

In a new episode of Billy on the Street, our loud host is telling people that Seth Rogen has died and asking them for their feelings on the matter. Seems pretty cruel, but what makes it all right is the Sausage Party and Neighbors star is on hand for every bit of it,  disguised as one of Billy Eichner’s cameramen who trail him as he breaks the bad news. Like I said, it’s hilarious and weird.

Black Mirror Netflix Vista

There’s always been something kind of ironic about the fact that Black Mirror is consumed through the very same technologies it’s warning us about. We’re watching it on our TVs and laptops and smartphones, and we’re discussing it with other fans on social media. To be fair, Black Mirror‘s message isn’t as simple as “technology is bad” — it’s more like “technology can be bad because human nature can be bad.” But more than once I’ve finished an episode of Black Mirror wanting nothing more than to throw all my devices out the window. Of course, I never actually do it, because then how would I watch the next episode of Black Mirror?

A new Black Mirror promo takes that irony one step further, introducing Netflix Vista — a (fictional) technology that will allow you to stream episodes of Black Mirror straight into your eyeballs. Watch the Black Mirror Netflix Vista short below.  Read More »
