If you were to sit down and hammer out a list of the best modern television shows that feel like they represent everything the medium can accomplish while quietly pushing media and culture to another level with their prodding, impossible-to-exaggerate greatness, HBO‘s Deadwood would be in the top five. Top three, if you decide to not kid yourself. It was a good show. You should watch it. Call your parents and get their HBO Go password, kids.
Unfortunately, David Milch‘s profane, beautiful and immersive western series was cancelled too early, concluding after three seasons with a final episode that was a fine season finale but a lackluster series finale. But now, HBO says that the series will finally get to go out in a blaze of glory with a proper Deadwood movie. Which is great news! But temper your expectations, hold on to your horses, etc. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard this kind of news.

Yesterday, actor Garret Dillahunt tweeted “So uh…I’m hearing credible rumors about a #Deadwood movie.” I had the same reaction to that tweet that a lot of other people seemed to have: don’t even play around with this. Deadwood is serious business. Canceled in 2006 after three great seasons and a less than satisfying conclusion, there was talk at the time of two Deadwood movies to finish out David Milch‘s obsessive and idiosyncratic western vision. Those movies never happened.
But now HBO confirms that, yes, there has been some talk about a Deadwood movie. Really early talk, but that’s better than nothing. Read More »

Thought the piss-poor box office figures for this past summer would discourage studios from making more sequels? Think again. After the jump:
- Relativity will release The Woman in Black 2
- Could Koba be back for the next Apes movie?
- Wesley Snipes might return for another Blade film
- Will Forte still really wants a MacGruber sequel
- Pirates of the Caribbean 5 may set sail for Australia
- Mission: Impossible 5 jets off to Morocco
- Is there any chance of more Deadwood?
- 24 may get that long-promised big screen sequel yet
- More Flowers in the Attic TV movies are coming
- Rumor has it the 50 Shades sequel will star a Kardashian
- The next Maze Runner is already in pre-production
- See a (SFW) pic from the set of Magic Mike XXL
- Lorde maybe teases her Hunger Games contribution

As we promised in “The Ones Who Knock” Kickstarter, I will be doing weekly recaps here for each episode of Breaking Bad. For those of you unfamiliar with my recapping style, it’s less of a straightforward plot summary and more a distillation of the most interesting elements of each week’s episode. The recaps will spoil everything up through the current episode (S5E11 “Confessions”), but won’t spoil any future episodes or even scenes from the “Next Time” segment of the show. There will, however, be some light speculation and straight-up crackpot theories. No theory or speculation is based on foreknowledge of the show. So hold on to your pork pie hats, because here we go.

Location is essential to the medium of television. Unlike movies, which can use a location and move along, TV recycles the same places over and over to conserve time and money. The result is that places on television become characters themselves.
That was the idea behind Austin-based artist Tim Doyle‘s first solo art show, UnReal Estate, in early 2012. Now the sequel is upon us. UnReal Estate II opens Thursday February 7 at Spoke Art in San Francisco, CA. Just like last year, Doyle has immortalized some of your favorite locations from our favorite TV shows. A few examples include the ship Serenity from Firefly, the TARDIS in Doctor Who, the model home on Arrested Development, and Downton Abbey from, well, you know where.
Below we’ve got the entire show and will tell you how to see it in person as well as buy prints online. Read More »
