Okay, so /Film is kinda becoming a Westworld fan site of sorts. Is that a bad thing? We love HBO’s newest show and are excited to talk about it and share the latest information and materials with all of you. This morning Jacob posted his spoiler-filled review of Westworld Episode 2, we saw a preview of next week’s episode and the upcoming season, and NYCC revealed that Westworld season 2 is already in the works and Jonathan Nolan debunked a couple of fan theories. Hopefully, there are enough of you watching to appreciate the abundance of content.

Last week we talk you that HBO had launched a Westworld ARG that lets fans go inside the world of the show. There are some interesting things to come out of this experience, especially for those of you who love the logistics of the park. After the jump we’ll take a look at the long DELOS contract the guests have to sign before they get to visit Westworld, take a look at a map of the land, and more.

FX Legion

We don’t know a ton about FX’s Legion, which is no surprise seeing as it won’t premiere for another several months. But it’s sounding more and more intriguing with every new morsel of information we get, and thanks to New York Comic-Con we’ve gotten a whole bunch of new details recently.

For starters, series creator Noah Hawley has announced that Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) will be joining Dan Stevens and Aubrey Plaza in the cast. Meanwhile, the producers also touched a bit on the show’s connection (or lack thereof) to the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. And to top it all off, there’s a new Legion poster to take in as well. Read about the Legion Jemaine Clement casting and much, much more below.  Read More »


HBO’s Westworld is quickly becoming my new obsession, a dense and complex science fiction tale that is full of wild ideas and chilling commentary that also manages to be…well, really, really fun to watch. It’s one thing to make a smart and scary show about the base nature of mankind, but it’s another thing altogether to also make it a surprisingly funny examination of interactive entertainment. And it’s yet another thing to set the whole think in a futuristic theme park themed as the old west and populated withe lifelike robots who may be on the verge of gaining self-awareness.

If you’re all caught up after last night’s episode, the preview for the third episode, titled “The Stray,” has arrived online.

Few hours of television have given me as much to think about and dwell over as “Chestnut,” the second episode of Westworld. No fancy introductions to this one. Let’s just dive right in.

Lin-Manual Miranda Saturday Night Live Monologue

Over the weekend we already took a closer look at all the best and worst sketches from the episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. We already highlighted the obvious but hilarious parody of Stranger Things, but we figured that starting off Monday morning by calling your attention to Miranda’s incredible Hamilton inspired opening monologue rap.

Lin-Manuel Miranda took the signature track “My Shot” from Hamilton and adapted it so that it was all about making a childhood dream of his come true by hosting Saturday Night Live. It’s fast-paced, well-written and just plain awesome. Read More »

Carlos Bernard as Tony Almeida in 24 Legacy

Even though Kiefer Sutherland disappointed fans by shooting down any plans to have Jack Bauer pop up at some point in 24: Legacy, that doesn’t mean other surviving characters from the original series run of 24 can’t return. We’ve already heard that there’s the possibility of Mary Lynn Rajskub returning as Chloe O’Brian, but now we have definitive news on the return of a veteran character from the show, one with a history spanning all the way back to the first season That character is Tony Almeida.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Saturday Night Live

Last night brought another first-time Saturday Night Live host to Studio 8H with Hamilton co-creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda taking the stage. As expected, there were plenty of musical jokes to be made (including an incredible opening monologue rap from our host), but the episode turned out to be rather average, despite the presence of some fantastic sketches throughout the night. There were even two surprise special guests at the Weekend Update desk.

Stranger Things Saturday Night Live Sketch

Last night, Lin-Manuel Miranda hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time (our recap is coming later today). It’s not everyday that a Broadway star is brought in to host the late night sketch comedy series, but that’s just how big Hamilton has become. In addition to all the musical jokes that were made, including plenty of rapping from Miranda, one of the standout sketches featured an outstanding parody of Stranger Things.

New cast members Mikey Day and Alex Moffat open the sketch as The Duffer Brothers, and they explain that they wanted to get a head start on answering some of the questions fans had after watching the first season of Stranger Things. One of the biggest questions revolves around one of the kid’s parents, who were noticeably absent while the kids were out during all hours of the night. Thankfully, Saturday Night Live brings those parents to life for us, and the result is thoroughly entertaining.
