The Venture Brothers, quite frankly, kicks several kinds of ass. If you’ve never seen the wacky show about the crazy Venture family (aging-scientist father Thaddeus “Rusty” and well-meaning-but-pretty-dumb twin brothers Hank and Dean) and their exploits against the villains of their world (led by “arch-nemesis” The Monarch, among several ridiculous others), I’mma need you to stop reading right now and go track the first five seasons down. You can tweet me and thank me tomorrow. Today brings good news, friends: the long-awaited sixth season of the show is set to debut soon! (more…)
Mitch Hurwitz, the creator of the hilariously dysfunctional family show, Arrested Development, made a very special announcement at the “Bluth Family Reunion” panel at the New Yorker Festival.
Guys, there will be more Arrested Development! Hurwitz revealed that there will be a 10-episode fourth season, followed by a feature film. We’ve no idea how far along he is with the next season, but he’s gotten through about half of screenplay for the movie with his co-writers, Jim Vallely and Dean Lorey.
Normally I’d begin this article with a spoiler warning since the final episode of the first half of Doctor Who‘s season hasn’t yet aired stateside, but with this short of a teaser there’s really no need. Nothing in this super, duper, uber shortie of a teaser will spoil ‘A Good Man Goes To War.’ In fact, it won’t enlighten you to the comings of the second half even if you are up to date with your Who.
This little teaser is creepy and intriguing, I’ll give it that. The only solid information we’re given is apparently, “Time Runs Out.” And this is supposed to be different from time ending, how? Who knows (Ha! See what I did there?), but my guess is time is running out for Amy and Rory as we already know Matt Smith is returning for next season. How this ties in to the a skeleton hand gripping the sonic screwdriver, you’ve got me.
Watch the teaser below and then share your thoughts? I know there’s got to be some good speculation going on out there.
Make sure you tune in this Saturday at 9pm for the mid-season finale on BBC America! And if you’d like, we’ve already got a review right over here.
Everyone can calm down. Matt Smith will return as the Doctor for next season’s Doctor Who. All those silly rumors of Matt running away to Hollywood were quickly squashed when Sam Hodges, the Head of Communications for BBC1, tweeted, “Fourteen new episodes have been commissioned with Matt Smith as The Doctor.” This means we can put off what will most likely be a heart-wrenching farewell episode for another year.
And as if you need more confirmation, the indisputable Steven Moffat himself tweeted,
14 eps + Matt DEFINITELY. I’ve got a plan and I’m NOT TELLING YOU WHAT IT IS. Now hush or River shoots you with her Spoiler Gun.
Those 14 episodes include the Christmas special at the end of this year and the 13 episodes that comprise next year’s season. Still no word on whether or not that season will be split in two halves like the current.
Also not confirmed is what will happen to the Doctor’s companions. There’s been no word yet it Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) will still be sleeping in their Tardis’ bunk beds. I really wouldn’t be too surprised if this is their final season, and I say that with a heavy heart because Amy and Rory have quickly become my favorite companions. Tennant’s Doctor traveled with three different companions, and dozens who would regularly come and go (Captain Jack, Sarah Jane, etc), so it seems only fitting Smith would eventually pick a new traveling pal. Or, here’s an intriguing idea, since Moffat is obviously staying on as showrunner, what if next season we finally see more of River’s adventures with the Doctor?
No matter who is joining him in the Tardis, more Matt Smith is totally welcome. Make sure you tune in for the mid-season finale of Doctor Who this Saturday on BBC America. (Psst. I’ve already seen it and wow. It’s a whopper.)
While Futurama has been resurrected on Comedy Central and became one of their biggest hits it seems not everyone is a fan. Recently a 22-year-old man was punched in the face when his Zoidberg impression was mistaken for insult. Which is absurd! There is nothing insulting about Zoidberg.
The man told police he was “just playing around” Feb. 11 near King and Calhoun streets when he began imitating Zoidberg. The report says the 22-year-old described Zoidberg as “a lobster doctor that walks sideways with his claws out and makes noise.”
When “Zoidberg” passed another man on the street, the other man reportedly asked, “What did you say to me?” The 22-year-old’s friends pulled him away from the man, “telling him, ‘keep going, he said nothing to you,’ ” according to the report.
The man reportedly followed for about 20 feet and threw the punch. The alleged assailant, who is known by the 22-year-old, reportedly ran away, the report states.
Either the impression really needed some work or walking sideways with your hands in a claw shape and going, “Woop. Woop, woop, woop, woop,” is really offensive to some people.
In related news the official Futurama Facebook page has reached it’s 10 millionth “Like.” Hooray! In celebration of this milestone Comedy Central has blessed us with a gift, two new images from next season of the animated show. From the episode titled “Neutopia” the images features some frightening female versions of Zoidberg and Fry. The Zoidberg one is particularly disturbing. If I saw this thing walking down the street “wooping” and clacking it’s claws I’d probably punch it in the face too. See the images below the cut.
