This summer may have been kind of a stinker movie-wise, but TV-wise there’s been a lot to love. Just in the past few weeks we’ve been obsessing over HBO’s The Night Of and USA’s Mr. Robot, sampling Netflix’s The Get Down and catching upon their Stranger Things and BoJack Horseman. And next week brings the season 3 premiere of FXX’s You’re the Worst, to close out the summer and carry us into fall.
When You’re the Worst first premiered in 2014, it looked like another caustic hangout sitcom a la It’s Always Sunny. But it quickly revealed itself to be something richer and more surprising, honestly grappling with serious material like PTSD and depression without losing its twisted sense of humor. Season 3 promises to pick off right where season 2 left off, which is to say with our four deeply imperfect heroes as hilariously lost as ever. Oh, and it also brings in some promising new characters like Justina, a therapist played by Orange Is the New Black‘s Samira Wiley. Watch the You’re the Worst season 3 trailer below. Read More »
Orange Is the New Black returns to Netflix on June 12, and the trailer for the show’s third season has arrived. We see the return of Laura Prepon‘s character (aka “the Bettie Page of Litchfield”) to the inmate roster, there are a few other new faces, and we see the results when Crazy Eyes (Suzanne Warren) makes an effort to write… porn? Sorry, a love story. Check out the Orange Is the New Black S3 trailer below.

It’s something we’ll be asking ourselves until Marvel officially confirms a lead. Considering Captain Marvel doesn’t arrive until 2018, that may not be for some time yet. In the meantime, here’s who we’d choose if we had our say. Hit the jump for our Captain Marvel casting picks.

If you want to rob someone for easy money and not have to worry about having the cops on your ass, who’s the best target? The mob probably isn’t the ideal choice because, well, it’s the mob. But for a couple of not-so-bright kids who didn’t think things through, it was enough to think that no one would prosecute them for knocking over a few wise-guy gambling clubs.
Rob the Mob is the story of those kids, played by Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire) and Nina Arianda (Midnight in Paris), and follows them as they attract the attention of some naturally pissed-off gangsters, and the cops who realize the kids might be the ticket to a successful legal attack on a crime family. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
