“A little lower Boone”

Television / Comments Off on “A little lower Boone”

Start the countdown, 4o days to the beginning of the end of Sons of Anarchy.  If you haven’t watched it I suggest you spend those days catching the fuck up.

Charlie Hunnam couldn’t make it to Comic-Con this year but he sent along this little gem instead.  I love the camaraderie the SOA cast has shown for so many years.  Despite all the crazy gruesome things Kurt Sutter puts them through on the page they seem to have a lot of fun at work.  Also if you’re looking for some insights into his process WTF Sutter is great.

Lorde to Curate the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Soundtrack

News / Comments Off on Lorde to Curate the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Soundtrack

President Snow

In one of the smartest marketing moves in recent memory Lionsgate has just announced that multiplatinum, Grammy Award winning, gives Dave Grohl hope for the future, and (how is she only) 17-year-old Lorde will curate the soundtrack to the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

A story about teens, read by teens, starring teens, and now musically influenced by teens.  You can also exchange all of those “teens” for “females”.  Because make no mistake, the Hunger Games is blockbuster feminism for Generation Z.

Kingdom – Coming This Fall

Television, Trailers / Comments Off on Kingdom – Coming This Fall

The first trailer for Kingdom (previously Navy St.) is here, and it delivers.  So much so that I can ignore the fact that it uses this year’s trailer music of choice “Jungle” by X Ambassadors, Jamie N Commons.  No word yet on when (or if) it will be airing in Canada, as it’s being produced specifically for DIRECTV.  I’m  predicting it’s a massive hit for Jonathan Tucker & Matt Lauria.  Fingers crossed that it finds its way North.

“Change” has turned out to be an apt name for this season. At Comic-Con, Nick announced that the show would be pulled from the network after episode 3.08; the remainder of the series will be airing on various digital sources, including Nickelodeon.com, at a weekly cadence on Fridays at 12:00 PM EST.

I’ll ramble about this move in a bit, but first, it’s time for an episode recap and a few theories! Continue reading…

FXX – You’re the Worst.

Chris Geere & Aya Cash in episode one of FX’s new comedy series You’re The Worst.

In 2011 the FX network launched in Canada.  Finally we were brought amazing shows like Sons of Anarchy and Wilfred.  Sure, they broadcast a few seasons off because current season rights are with others like Super Channel.  And of course shows that started prior to 2011 that had deals with other networks (Justified, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia) aren’t on it.  But it was a start.

Which is fantastic because FX has had some of the most genius and underrated shows around.  Would any other network have a show about a stoner lawyer who almost kills himself in the pilot only to meet his neighbour’s dog.  That is a dog to everyone else, and a human in a dog costume (with an Australian accent) to him.  That show, if you haven’t seen it, is Wilfred.  It’s dark.  And a surreal masterpiece of comedy.

FX takes risks.  It lets shows go into deep dark places.  The collective of people who tell stories on FX are artists, a word seldom used when talking about television. Continue reading…
