Rick and Morty Anime Short

We’ve only seen five episodes from the fourth season of Rick and Morty. The new episodes aired towards the end of last year, and since then, we’ve gotten no word from Adult Swim on when we’ll see the rest of the season. Considering the recent delays due to the coronavirus pandemic shutting down most TV shows and movies that were in production, the return of Rick and Morty is completely up in the air. However, the duo did return to Adult Swim this past weekend, albeit in a much different form.

During the Toonami block of programming that airs anime shows on Adult Swim, there was a whole Rick and Morty anime short inspired by Lone Wolf and Cub, the manga created by writer Kazuo Koike and artist Goseki Kojima, which has been turned into several different movies and TV adaptations, not to mention having a huge influence on the live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian. Watch the Rick and Morty anime short below. Read More »

There’s a lot going on in Tiger King, Netflix’s buzz-worthy new docuseries. And while the majority of the show focuses on now-incarcerated private zoo owner Joe Exotic and his rivalry with animal rights activist Carole Baskin, there’s also an entire episode that strongly suggests Baskin played a part in the disappearance and presumed death of her husband, multi-millionaire Jack Donald “Don” Lewis. With the Tiger King popularity soaring, a Florida sheriff has decided to reach out to the public for new leads in the Lewis case.

When the Streetlights Go On trailer

We’re just a few days away from the launch of Quibi, the new mobile-only streaming platform. One of the service’s “movies in chapters” that will be available on day one is called When The Streetlights Go On, a murder mystery set in a small town in 1995. Chosen Jacobs (It, Castle Rock) plays a 15-year-old who discovers a pair of murder victims in the woods, and the ramifications of the crime quickly begin to ripple through his community.

Oddly enough, a different version of this show played at the Sundance Film Festival a few years ago. Learn more about that and check out the trailer for the new Quibi version below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

“Fighting for your life makes every other thing you ever did before seem extremely dull.”

This line is spoken by Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) in the penultimate episode of Ozark’s third season, which hit Netflix on Friday. It’s a line that cuts to the core of what makes Wendy, her husband Marty (Jason Bateman), and the show around them tick. In its first season, Ozark plunged viewers into the world of the Byrdes and their Missouri money-laundering operation. From the moment a Mexican drug lord knelt Marty down and put a gun to his head in the pilot episode, we’ve been watching him talk and scheme his way out of certain death.

Subsequent episodes and seasons have seen Wendy take on an increasingly prominent role within the criminal enterprise that is keeping her and Marty and their two kids alive (for now). Ozark lost some momentum in its second season as its pace slowed, but the show is back with a vengeance now, doing what it does best: namely, putting the Byrdes at the center of a volatile situation where things keep spiraling further out of control. This season, the dark drama pops with bigger emotional fireworks, thanks in no small part to the arrival of Wendy’s bipolar brother, Ben (Tom Pelphrey), who adds an unexpectedly moving human element to a show where characters regularly display an inhuman lack of empathy. Ben is the Fredo Corleone in this equation, ready to break his sibling’s heart and that of the viewer.

If you’re all caught up with your weekend Ozark binge, then let’s dive into the Lake of the Ozarks with spoilers.
