No, this isn't about the William Buckley novel of that name. This is about the new Netflix show Marco Polo that was made available today. Is anyone else watching? Mild spoilers.
It has happened. Somehow, against all odds, The C-freaking-W has become my favorite network. I'm in my mid-30s. I'm an adult! The CW is supposed to be targeting teenagers with crap that makes them feel good and teaches life lessons, or is filled with beautiful people too young for their jobs. And yet, here I am,…
A&E cancelled the crime drama Longmire despite decent ratings earlier this year. But as it has done for other shows, Netflix has swooped down and given the show a little more life.
A couple of interesting tidbits from the Charlie Day profile in Newport Life: his parents are both music PhDs; he plays several instruments and the Always Sunny in Philadephia crew are developing five other shows for FX, plus they have two more seasons to go.
The multi-cam sitcom The Millers has been hemorrhaging viewership since losing its The Big Bang Theory lead-in on Thursdays and switching to Mondays with 2 Broke Girls, to the point where production has been suspended. And even the show itself knows it. Tonight's The Millers features Will Arnet's character confronting…
Did anyone ever expect this show to be on for 10 (!) years and reach 200 episodes, sci-fi at that, with no signs of quitting? For reference, here's a slightly outdated article listing network television shows that surpassed the 200 mark.
One of the big TV industry buzz items this week is the cancellation of ABC single-cam comedy Selfie, starring Karen Gillan and John Cho (of Doctor Who and Star Trek fame, as ABC themselves incessantly pointed out). The comedy is yet another take on the My Fair Lady/Pygmalion approach: turn a woman who's less than a…
The last weekend of September 2014 was also the last weekend a broadcast network aired Saturday morning cartoons. Is this the end of an animated era, or is it a sign of a long trend coming across multiple genres of children's entertainment? Children's programming used to be a highly lucrative television market, but…
I am seriously enjoying The 100. I know it's flawed, but I forgive its flaws because...I don't even know why. Let's figure this out. (spoilerish. spoiler-y. in, you know, vague-like, spoilerific ways.)
If you've watched last night's SVU ("Pornstar's Requim") or aren't worried about spoilers because this clip contains a doozy and if you can stream Hulu, watch the background players at the beginning and again toward the end of this thirteen-second clip (after the thirty-second ad);
All shows must end. Some endings are great. Some are terrible. Some are endlessly disputed. We all have our favorites, and we all have ones we think ruined the damn show, and why the hell would they ever screw the fans over by televising that piece of steaming— Excuse me, I just get so damn angry.
While reading about Richard Pryor the other day, I learned that in 1977, NBC aired four episodes of The Richard Pryor Show opposite Happy Days/Laverne & Shirley. There were originally supposed to be ten, but frustrated by network interference during development, Pryor reportedly balked and agreed to do just four.
For many children and teenagers of the 1990s, Linda Ellerbee might have been the first news anchor we learned to trust. Never one to avoid covering complex issues in terms kids can understand, Ellerbee is hosting a special Nick News on the lives of gay children.
"The T Word," Laverne Cox's new show about young trans people, premieres this month on both MTV and LOGO, and even the trailer is a thing of beauty.
Syfy has ordered a 13 episode third season for Defiance. Syfy's other post apocalyptic show with angels instead of aliens Dominion was also renewed for 13 episodes.
Last night we welcomed back the best damn show on television. Anyone else catch it? Spoilers below.
Marvel's Agents of SHIELD is back, and the show's return has brought not only some real highs and lows for the main cast, but a ton of comic book references, and major Avengers' villain Absorbing Man to boot!
I really need to catch up on Walking Dead:
Okay, officially this doesn't start til next month, but that and some other pilots were on Hulu, and I watched this one.
