Posted by monique On January - 13 - 2015 0 Comment

“Community,” the Little Show that Could, is finally back! Fans were outraged when NBC cancelled the oft-on-the-bubble show before it had the chance to fulfill its self-made destiny of “six seasons and a movie,” but now it’s sixth season is finally airing on Yahoo. Look for the new season on Yahoo Screen this March. March 17 is the official date of the return of your favorite community college characters. Two episodes will be released that day, which will get fans pumped for the rest of the 13-episode season. The show won’t be the same as it was on NBC for two reasons. First, two new characters played by Keith David  [ Read More ]

Oscars 2013

We already have the ends of movie trilogies split up into two films, which is annoying in itself, but not it seems like the splitting-up trend has come to other parts of Hollywood as well, like the Oscar nominations presentation. Yes, you read right. The press conference-type event that gives us the nominees for the biggest awards show in America is being elongated into two parts, which feels unnecessary. The Wrap states that the first part will happen at 5:30 a.m. PT Jan. 15. Alfonso Cuaron and J.J. Abrams will announce the first set of nominations, which includes animated short and feature film, original song, documentary feature and short subject,  [ Read More ]

Fox’s brand new dramatic entry, “Empire,” spearheaded by Lee Daniels, is now television gold. The show had an “American Idol” lead-in, but honestly, it didn’t really need it, since the show became the network’s biggest drama debut in several years. “Empire,” starring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, premiered to a 3.7 rating among the 18-49 demographic and 9.8 million viewers. “Empire” not only outpaced “American Idol,” which, despite earning 10.9 million viewers, went down a large percentage from last year, but it also scored higher than “Gotham,” Fox’s latest show to debut to a big audience. In short, “Empire” has shown people why they should pay attention to it.  [ Read More ]


Critics Love Marvel’s Agent Carter

Agent Carter

“Agent Carter” is possibly this year’s “Sleepy Hollow” in terms of mostly overwhelming support and accolades from television critics. The show featured the fun, “BAM! POW!” aspects of classic comic books while directly critiquing sexism and misogyny that took place in the ’40s and in micro-agression form today. Overall, Marvel should be pleased with the critical success. The head-over-heels love that many critics exhibited with the show and the lead, Hayley Atwell (who plays Agent Peggy Carter), can be seen in quotes such as what The Telegraph’s Ben Travis wrote. “In the opening two episodes, Atwell commanded the role perfectly, clearly relishing the chance to play revisionist history as a  [ Read More ]

TV Critics Sound Off on ABC’s Galavant

Posted by monique On January - 5 - 2015 0 Comment

“Galavant,” ABC’s new comedy-musical extravaganza, is a strange show to behold. It certainly doesn’t fit the mold of anything we’ve seen on television in a while. Reviewers have already compared it to “The Princess Bride” and Monty Python, but what else do they think about it? Overall, it seems like reviewers liked it, but are unsure of how it’s going to sustain itself over the course of its eight episode run. Amy Ratcliffe from IGN wrote that the show takes the standard fairy tale heroic story and makes it fresh and fun with the additions of music and laughs. “Overall, most of the primary cast are engaging and leave you  [ Read More ]

What you can expect to see during this concert though, is more of a one-on-one interaction between the fans and the band. “In December 2014, the BBC’s historic Radio Theatre opened its doors to Coldplay, one of the biggest stadium rock bands in the world. The Grammy award-winning group perform a selection of classic tracks from their big-selling catalogue through to their sixth album Ghost  [ Read More ]

New Fashion Police Promo with Kathy Griffin Released

Fashion Police Kathy Griffin promo

The popular E! show “Fashion Police” was dealt a harsh blow when comedian and host Joan Rivers died unexpectedly this year. But the show has soldiered on and has found a worthy replacement for Rivers in comedian Kathy Griffin. Technically, Griffin is probably one of the best choices for the role, if not the best. Both Griffin and Rivers seem cut from the same brash, explosive cloth. Both comedians are also very controversial, so like with Rivers, Griffin’s allure is that you either like her or you don’t. It’s really going to be up to the viewer’s personal preference as to whether they tune into Griffin’s style of comedy. In  [ Read More ]
