  • ‘The Masked Singer': Korean Hit Comes to the US (Trailer)

    ‘The Masked Singer': Korean Hit Comes to the US (Trailer)

    I sometimes miss the late 90s/early 2000s era for Fox, when they would air a bunch of the craziest stuff possible on network TV. I’m talking about Glutton Bowl. I’m talking about … well, Glutton Bowl. But The Masked Singer sort of reminds me of that era, and that’s enough for me to be somewhat interested. The Masked Singer is […]

    ‘Spin the Wheel': Justin Timberlake Creates Game Show

    It’s somehow a comfort to me to know that when your pop megastar cache runs out, you can always turn to creating game shows. That’s what Justin Timberlake has done, and his brainstorm has led to the somewhat unimaginatively titled Spin the Wheel to get the green light from Fox. As Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment […]

    ‘The Purple Boys': Tim and Eric Sell Purple Mattresses

    Back in the old days, you were considered a sellout in comedy if you did commercials. But Tim and Eric discovered long ago that a better approach is to take the money for doing commercials, but make those commercials as weird as possible. The latest example comes from mattress brand Purple, which has enlisted Tim […]

    ‘Constantine: City of Demons’ Official Trailer (Video)

    John Constantine is back and this time he’s animated. No, I don’t mean his demeanor, I mean the medium chosen to present his latest adventure to the public, for the upcoming DC animated film Constantine: City of Demons. Because I don’t want to bore you with a bunch of nonsense about how Keanu’s take on the […]

    ‘Parts Unknown’ Will Return to CNN for One Final Season

    Anthony Bourdain’s shocking suicide is still a sensitive topic for his millions of fans. But at least they have a new, posthumous season of his popular CNN show Parts Unknown to look forward to, according to a recent Los Angeles Times report.

    Sarah Connor: First Look at Returning ‘Terminator’ Heroine

    It has been more than 25 years since we last checked in with Sarah Connor, modern-day mother of our savior against the machines — and I’m talking about the real one, played by Linda Hamilton, not any of her imitators which frankly I suspect are secretly Terminators themselves. But now, she’s coming back: Official first look […]

    ’24’ Coming Back for Jack Bauer’s Early Days

    If you’ve ever wondered what things were like for Jack Bauer as a young, fresh-eyed college graduate with dreams of torturing people for information, our current media landscape’s obsession with prequels and origin stories has you covered. According to recent reports, 24 is on its way back to Fox for a Bauer prequel. Personally, I think the […]

    ‘BLOCKBUSTER': Harmony Korine Makes Sculptures from VHS Covers

    Nostalgia is a hell of a drug. It can make you feel affection for TV shows that weren’t funny, movies that weren’t any good, or even technology that was by any objective measure totally substandard and inadequate. Take the VHS tape, which has been subject to fetishization and reminiscence for years now, Harmony Korine’s (Spring […]

    ‘Maniac’ Starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone (Teaser)

    Netflix seems to have some sort of viewer data indicating that various demographic quadrants are interested in strange, mysterious stuff. First we had the teaser for Roma, and now we have an equally strange teaser for Maniac, an upcoming limited series starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone. Unlike Roma, however, Netflix has released a rather extensive synopsis for the […]
