doctor who rose prequel

By its nature, Doctor Who is a show filled with gaps and holes — the series was off the air for 16 years between the time it was canceled in 1989 and revived for a modern audience in 2005 by Russell T. Davies. Even when it’s on the air, our favorite time-traveling alien is having countless off-screen adventures that we’ll never be privy to.

The mystery of Doctor Who has allowed fans to fill those gaps with their own imaginations, or with the hundreds of audio book stories released by Big Finish. But imagination can only take us so far, especially when that’s the only thing we’re stuck with in quarantine. So former showrunner Russell T. Davies and current showrunner Chris Chibnall are stepping in to fill in those gaps with never-before-seen prequels to their respective runs on Doctor Who.

dirty john the betty broderick story trailer

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And Betty Broderick may be one of the most famous real-life woman scorned. Dirty John, Bravo’s true-crime series based on the podcast of the same name about the twisted tale of con artist John Meehan, is back with a new criminal and a new network. Under USA, Dirty John has been rebranded a true-crime anthology series, with convicted murderer Betty Broderick as the central figure in the second season, as played by an absolutely unhinged Amanda Peet.

We’re living in an uncertain world, but there’s at least one certainty that we can’t avoid: Quibi is coming. Will the new mobile-only streaming platform and its mountain of original content change the way we think about entertainment forever, land with a dud, or something in between?

Star Wars Deal No Deal Review

The latest episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars continues the adjustment of former Skywalker padawan Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) to her new station without the Jedi’s guide. She is temporarily residing in the underground of Coruscant, sheltered by the not-so-bright aspiring pilot Trace (Brigitte Kali) in a garage. After some hired pilots fail to show up, the shady Rafa (Elizabeth Rodriguez) enlists Trace, her little sister, who is miserable to learn she wasn’t the first choice, to pilot for a major job that could pay off Rafa’s debts to gangs. Rafa reluctantly permits Ahsoka on board, skeptical of the latter’s objections to her crooked business dealings. In turn, Ahsoka seeks to keep them out of trouble.

loki tv series

Loki, the Disney+ TV series which brings back Tom Hiddleston‘s god of mischief, is (probably) coming our way early next year. And while we all have a pretty good idea what to expect – Loki back on his bullshit – specific details remain locked away. But showrunner Michael Waldron has some hot goss he’s ready to spill on what’s in store. Specifically: how the sometimes villain/sometimes hero Loki will deal with his ever-changing identity.

unused star wars creatures

The future of movie theaters seems tenuous at the moment, but the prevailing wisdom right now seems to be that when the coronavirus crisis ends, (some) theaters will still be around, even if they’re only used for mega-blockbuster comic book and Star Wars movies. While we wait to learn more about what will happen to the theater industry, let’s turn our attention to Lucasfilm’s future on the small screen – specifically, the Cassian Andor Disney+ series which acts as a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. According to a new interview, this show will serve as a “second chance” for Star Wars creatures who may have only gotten a brief moment of screen time, or a place for previously-made but unused creatures to finally make their mark in a galaxy far, far away.

The Undoing trailer

Update: We’d previously covered HBO’s officially-released teasers for this show, but the premium channel has since replaced them with different versions. The biggest difference is that the earlier versions said the show would be premiering on May 10, 2020, but these new versions have changed the premiere date to a more vague “this fall.” Our original article continues.

Nicole Kidman continues her HBO show reign with The Undoing, a new limited series Kidman stars in and executive produces. Based on the novel You Should Have Known, the series finds Kidman playing a therapist whose life unravels following a murder and a public disaster that may or may not involve her husband, played by Hugh Grant. It’s all very mysterious and tense, and is likely designed to keep viewers addicted and hungry for more episodes. Watch The Undoing trailer below.
