    CBS Orders MISSION CONTROL Pilot from Author Andy Weir

    Embed from Getty Images I always have a hankering for a space adventure.  So, I was pretty excited to hear that, not only is Andy Weir writing a drama centered at NASA, but CBS ordered the pilot!  According to collectSPACE.com, CBS made the order for Mission Control on Tuesday. Weir is the author of the popular novel The Martian.  That book’s film adaptation, starring Matt Damon won a bunch of awards last year, and was one of my personal favorite movies […]

  • Watch the Trailer for GIRLFRIEND’S DAY with Bob Odenkirk

    Watch the Trailer for GIRLFRIEND’S DAY with Bob Odenkirk

    Bob Odenkirk seems to have found his niche.  His second coming as Saul Goodman in the powerhouse series Breaking Bad and the equally compelling follow-up,  Better Call Saul have given him a type.  He’s the down and out, caught in weird circumstances type.  And, it’s working for him.  Netflix’s new Odenkirk vehicle, Girlfriend’s Day solidifies it. At the start of the trailer, you think you’re looking at a quirky romance about a greeting card writer.  What follows gets weird and […]

Jason Segel, Robert Redford and Rooney Mara star in this near-future science fiction where the afterlife is proven by science and people start to take matters into their own hands. […]

  • Watch SNL’s Digital Short SHONDRA AND MALIK with Leslie Jones

    Watch SNL’s Digital Short SHONDRA AND MALIK with Leslie Jones

    Despite SNL‘s slightly disappointing return to TV with host Felicity Jones, SNL Digital Shorts continues to deliver.  Leslie Jones, Kenan Thompson and Vanessa Bayer star in Shondra and Malik, a cautionary tale for anyone looking to issue an ultimatum, or make a dramatic exit. All of us have had moments where we really really want to look big, make our point, and exit with some power.  And, we all know how often that DOESN’T work.  I can’t count the times I told […]

  • PBS’s BEYOND A YEAR IN SPACE Explores Human Limitations in Space Travel

    PBS’s BEYOND A YEAR IN SPACE Explores Human Limitations in Space Travel

    One of the bright spots of last year was PBS’s A Year in Space.  The special followed astronaut Scott Kelly’s year on the International Space Station.  Now, Deadline reports that their follow-up special, Beyond a Year in Space will follow Kelly on his return to Earth. This is totally fascinating.  Both of these PBS films are based on Time‘s original digital video series, and I’m SO EXCITED to see the second one.  I’m excited for a number of reasons, but […]

    Netflix’s iBOY Introduces Superhero with Technological Upgrade

    Superhero franchises are huge business right now, as we all know.  So, it’s not a surprise to me when anybody tries to get in the game.  But, Netflix caught my eye with this one.  iBoy is a new superhero with sci-fi power, and I’m intrigued. Bill Milner plays Tom, a mild mannered teenager who walks in on an attack on his friend, Lucy (Maisie Williams).  Her attackers shoot Tom, leaving fragments of his smart phone in his brain.  He starts to […]

  • You Must Watch  ‘HOME ALONE with Blood’!

    You Must Watch ‘HOME ALONE with Blood’!

    Okay.  I can’t stop cringing and I can’t stop laughing.  I’m not one for blood and gore, unless it’s extremely campy and unreal, and this is just ridiculous enough to give me the giggles.  Behold, Home Alone with blood. Every holiday season, I have a conversation with someone about Home Alone.   And, every time, it’s because I just can’t believe that these two dudes would incur all of these extreme injuries without shedding a drop of blood.  ‘I don’t buy it’, I say.

    Many of us have been waiting with great anticipation for Hulu’s adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.   Well this is our first real look! Elisabeth Moss stars as Offred in this version, with co-star Alexis Bledel.  We only get flashes of the world we’re entering, but it looks appropriately terrifying.  It seems they put some cash behind this one.  It looks really beautiful in a horrifying way.  I’m looking forward to it! Here’s a little background from Hulu, […]

    DEATH RACE 2050 Official Red Band Trailer Delivers!

    If you’re looking for camp, look no further.  The Death Race 2050 Official Red Band Trailer was released yesterday.  And, Roger Corman has done it again. You may have been afraid that the Death Race reboot would bring a darker, more serious tone to the story as so many reboots do… well, worry not, my friends.  Corman’s 2050 hasn’t lost any of the sense of humor of the original.  Malcolm McDowell looks amazing as ever, and plays the broadest of tyrannical […]

    Captain America: Civil War has gotten a lot of positive fan attention, as it should.  And, it’s trailer has also been a target for fandom.  Now, we have a shot for shot live action remake of the trailer from the Youtubers at Cinefix!

    Benedict Cumberbatch is Related to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

    WHAT!?!  Could this be more perfect?  Some awesome genealogy geeks have discovered that Benedict Cumberbatch, who currently plays Sherlock Holmes on TV is related to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who CREATED SHERLOCK HOLMES!! Entertainment Weekly reports that according to Ancestry.com, the two are 16th cousins, twice removed.  I have no idea what that means… but apparently Conan Doyle and Cumberbatch share a common ancestor.  That ancestor is  ‘John of Gaunt, who was the Duke of Lancaster and a close friend of The Canterbury […]
