High Fiedelity TV Series

The forthcoming Disney streaming service isn’t going to launch until sometime in 2019, but the House of Mouse already has plenty of movies and TV shows in development. Most of the programming they’ve planned so far has sounded quite family friendly, but for one of their TV projects, they’re looking at turning an R-rated romantic comedy into a TV series.

The Disney-owned Touchstone Pictures released an adaptation of Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel High Fidelity in 2000 with John Cusack in the lead role as a record store owner looking back at his failed relationships as part of hopefully making his love life a little better as he tries to figure out where he went wrong. Now there will be a High Fidelity TV series created for the Disney streaming service. Read More »

The Rankless Initiative Review

It’s that time of the week in which I view the latest episode of Krypton and ask the question foremost in our minds: Is the show getting better? Dare I say that this week, we’ve seen some improvement?

This week’s episode, “The Rankless Initiative,” actually has a better defined pace and a clear motive: Seg needs to save Rhom (Alexis Raben), a friend to Seg’s family, from the clutches of Brainiac’s parasitical sentry designed to relay information about Krypton back to the big baddie himself. This showed a clear path Krypton could take going forward. By becoming a “monster-of-the-week” show, Krypton could establish a rhythm for itself while building its overarching storyline. The key word here is “could” – if Krypton will continue this course is anyone’s guess right now.

Mr. Kessler’s claim is completely meritless. He had no connection to the creation or development of Stranger Things. The Duffer Brothers have neither seen Mr. Kessler’s short film nor discussed any project with him. This is just an attempt to profit from other people’s creativity and hard work.

We’re just under three weeks away from returning to Westworld with the second season of HBO’s hit sci-fi series getting closer everyday.
