I Love Dick Trailer - Kathryn Hahn

Kevin Bacon has been the object of desire for many a woman over the years, and now he’ll be lusted after by Kathryn Hahn in a new series called I Love Dick, based on Chris Kraus 1997 novel of the same name.

Amazon is bringing I Love Dick to their Prime subscribers as a new series after the pilot debuted online last year. The series hails from Transparent mastermind Jill Soloway, and it looks like it will be quite the steamy story that explores sexuality as it corresponds to a struggling marriage and the principles of monogamy.

Watch the I Love Dick trailer below, but beware that it’s NSFW due to language and nudity. Read More »

big-little-lies

When HBO’s limited series Big Little Lies came to an end a little more than a week ago, I was satisfied with the conclusion. But only seven days later, I was conflicted; I appreciated the succinctness of the series’ seven episode run and thought it told a compelling and complete story, but at the same time, I couldn’t help but wish there were more episodes to dive into.

So will we ever see Big Little Lies season 2? Below, I’ll run down all of the quotes from the major players involved and try to get to the bottom of this.

The most recent season of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black wrapped up with the biggest cliffhanger in the show’s history, and the streaming service has just unveiled a few new photos and a first-look clip that teases what we can expect from the upcoming fifth season. I don’t want to spoil anything for those who still haven’t caught up, so join me below and we’ll protect this conversation from any wandering, spoiler-phobic eyes.

better call saul season premiere review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Better Call Saul season 3 by answering one simple question: who came out on top when the credits rolled?)

In the world of Better Call Saul, happiness tends to come with strings attached, if not completely hand-in-hand with misfortune. The third season’s premiere proves no exception to the rule, as little fragments of joy are outweighed by the consequences of what led to them. As the chickens start coming home to roost, it’s Mike (Jonathan Banks) who fares best, if only because his problems are a little more easily compartmentalized than the McGill family drama.

the haunting tv series

It looks like Netflix is happy to stay in the Mike Flanagan business. The ever-busy horror director has signed on to make a 10-episode series based on Shirley Jackson’s novel The Haunting of Hill House, which has been previously adapted for the big screen twice, once in 1963 and once in 1999. In both cases, it was retitled The Haunting. However, there are a few intriguing details about this project that make it seem like the culmination of…well, something.

13 reasons why season 2

Over the weekend, I binge-watched all thirteen episodes of Netflix’s new series 13 Reasons Why.

You may have watched the trailer for 13 Reasons Why and quickly discounted it as another forgettable YA adaptation, but I assure you, the series is worth your time. It has episodes directed by Oscar-winning director Tom McCarthy (Spotlight, The Visitor), Gregg Araki (Mysterious Skin, The Doom Generation), Jessica Yu (American Dreams, Ping Pong Playa), among others. And since it’s adapted from a book, it feels more like a 13-hour movie than a 13 episode TV series (and this is a case where this is a good thing).

When 13 Reasons Why ends, it leaves us with some questions and lingering storylines that make me wonder if the series could return for more, even if the source material has already been brought to the main screen. Let’s explore the unanswered questions and discuss if there are plans for a 13 Reasons Why Season 2.

sense8 season 2 trailer

I’m a huge fan of just about everything Lana and Lilly Wachowski have touched (yes, even the Matrix sequels), but I never got around to watching Sense8, the science fiction series they co-created with J. Michael Straczynski for Netflix. However, the arrival of the trailer for the second season may be the kick in the butt I need to get around to this one. This show looks goofy and thoughtful and action-packed and honest and silly and visually dynamic…well, it looks in line with past work by both the Wachowskis and Straczynski.

The 10 Best Television Spin-Offs of All Time

better call saul season 3

The successful television spin-off has a high wire act to maintain. It has to differentiate itself from its source material while maintaining enough of what fans love so they’ll come along with it in the first place. But for every Better Call Saul there are a dozen Joeys – spin-offs that fail right from the start. With the former returning for its third season, let’s take a look at ten spin-offs that were just as good (if not better) than their parent series.

Louis CK Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend brought Louis C.K. back to Saturday Night Live as host for a fourth time. There hadn’t been a new episode in nearly a month since Scarlett Johansson hit the stage in Studio 8H last month, so the writers and cast were refreshed and ready to go. The wait for a new episode was worth it, because with Louis C.K. on board as host, they delivered a fantastic episode where even the average sketches had more laughs than the usual middling ones and there were only two sketches that didn’t really work.

After the jump, we run through the best and worst sketches from the Louis CK hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »
