Future Man settles in for a madcap holiday dinner party-slash-torture session

9 hours ago

Even though Future Man could send its characters anywhere in time and space, one of the show’s best episodes so far is also the closest thing it’s had to a bottle episode, taking place almost entirely in the Futturman house. With just 28 minutes until Jeri’s head blows up (or, roughly the length of an episode of…

Chance The Rapper and Saturday Night Live make the musical plea, “Come Back, Barack”

17 hours ago

On his well-received hosting stint on last night’s Saturday Night Live, Chance The Rapper—while not tapped as the musical guest as well, for some reason—nonetheless teamed up with Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd for a spot-on recreation of a smooth ’90s R&B ode to a lost love. “You were so intelligent, you were so…

Civilization VI Is Down to $30 For the First Time Ever

18 November 2017 5:02 AM, PST

Civilization VI made some major changes in its summer update, and you can pick up the game for $30 today, the best price we’ve ever seen. Amazon lists it as the Mac version, but all you’re really buying here is a Steam code, so it’ll work on PC as well. Just be sure to place your order before Gandhi nukes the deal.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend catches its breath in a smart, subdued hour

17 November 2017 6:03 PM, PST

Often, when someone says an episode of television is subdued, they mean it’s a little lackluster. It’s not bad, just perhaps muted, or tentative, or somehow restrained. As a result, ‘subdued’ feels like an odd word to choose for an episode of television that includes a the line “bitch get out of my way bitch” and two…

Netflix knows you're streaming on the can

17 November 2017 3:11 PM, PST

Ah, the bathroom: The one public place where you’re allowed to call “Sanctuary!” and just lock a door, relax, and breathe a (shallow) sigh of relief. And hey, why not take off your jacket, while you’re at it? Kick off your shoes. (Note: Don’t actually do this unless you really trust the bathroom in question.) Maybe…

Marti Noxon supports Mad Men writer’s claim against Matthew Weiner

17 November 2017 1:35 PM, PST

Last week, Emmy-winning writer Kater Gordon came forward with a statement against her Mad Men boss Matthew Weiner in an interview with The Informant. She said that the Mad Men showrunner told her she “owed it to him” to let him see her naked. Gordon said she attempted to brush it off, but a year later Weiner fired…

Minus The Bear picks its 5 biggest musical influences, from Pink Floyd to The Cardigans

17 November 2017 12:45 PM, PST

The last time we saw the guys from Minus The Bear, they were destroying our Undercover sign during an awesome cover of Fugazi’s “Waiting Room.” A couple months after the fact and we’ve (mostly) forgiven them. To bury the hatchet, we sat down with them at this year’s Riot Fest in Chicago to talk about their biggest…

Future Man's science lab caper is one for the gobulator

17 November 2017 11:00 AM, PST

Most of “A Fuel’s Errand” is sort of like a compressed second act, hitting beats that the movie version of Future Man might have gotten to after an hour or so. Josh is kicked off the anti-Biotic team in the wake of his failures in the last episode and the discovery that he is, in fact, a janitor. (Tiger adds insult to…

Meet the guy who yelled “finish him” on Mortal Kombat, be disillusioned forever

17 November 2017 8:29 AM, PST

There was a smoky, satanic quality to the voice that urged you to “finish him” after crushing an opponent in Mortal Kombat; it was easy to imagine it echoing from beneath Shao Kahn’s skull mask as he watched you battle from his gilded throne. If that’s an image you’d like to maintain, it might be best to skip the…

David Alan Grier to star in Cool Kids pilot from the It's Always Sunny gang

16 November 2017 6:51 PM, PST

Back in September, we reported that Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, and Glenn Howerton from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia were developing a pilot for Fox called The Cool Kids. As we noted at the time, the pilot is set in a retirement home and centers on a group of popular residents whose rule over the facility begins…

Liz Phair is writing not one, but two books

16 November 2017 6:33 PM, PST

’90s indie rock star Liz Phair is getting into the writing game, and not in a small way: Variety reports that Random House has signed a two-deal book with the Exile In Guyville singer-songwriter, who recently toured as an opener for her old pals in The Smashing Pumpkins. To be fair, Phair’s lyrics were always a big…

Forget Fashion Week: Liris Crosse is the real winner of this season’s Project Runway

16 November 2017 5:00 PM, PST

As Project Runway concludes its 16th season, it’s not uncommon to find yourself disagreeing with the judges’ final pick. I still think last season’s winner, Erin Robertson, was more of a stylist than a visionary, someone who really knew her way around a glue gun. But what makes this year’s finale unique is that, even…

Our critics debate the merits of DC's Justice League

16 November 2017 2:30 PM, PST

It’s been more than a year and a half since A.V. Club’s A.A. Dowd and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky last sat down to debate the merits (or lack thereof) of a Zack Snyder superhero movie. But now, duty calls them to return to the bombastic Snyder-verse with a look at Justice League, an intentional course-correction for the DC…

World's most expensive painting sells for $450 million, kind of sucks

16 November 2017 2:29 PM, PST

We don’t profess to be art critics here at The A.V. Club, but we do understand (vaguely) that $450.3 million is a lot of money. (A quick Google search suggests that it’s enough money to buy a first-season DVD set of the TV show Alf 52,914,218 and a half times over, in case that helps you put it into context.) That…

The animated trifle The Star passes the Nativity through its ass

16 November 2017 1:30 PM, PST

It’s a cute idea, making an animated film about the animals of the Nativity—Mary and Joseph’s donkey, the wise men’s camels, the shepherds’ sheep, and so on. Never mind that most of these are later inventions; the texts of the gospels and the Old Testament teem with animals and animal metaphors (not to mention all…

As unlikely as it sounds, Trump may have lied about how much his company is worth

16 November 2017 12:46 PM, PST

Donald Trump is the world’s greatest businessman, a real estate genius who is so rich that he can coat everything he owns in gold and whose most easily recognizable trait is not his specific hairstyle or the size of his hands, but the enormity of his various secret bank accounts. He’s also a brilliant negotiator who…

Future Man returns to 2017 for some ethical stalling

16 November 2017 10:00 AM, PST

Future Man was originally intended as a movie, and it shows: each episode manages to mostly hit one beat of a story that’s pretty easy to imagine as a 90-minute film. In this case, “A Riphole In Time” focuses on one of the lamer beats that tends to populate the type of movie Future Man is cribbing from: the hero’s…

Watch Drake stop a show and threaten to fuck a dude up for groping women

16 November 2017 9:05 AM, PST

Concerts of any genre are hotbeds of unwanted contact, but do not for a second think about being a creep at a Drake show. At an Australian after-party recently, Drake stopped “Know Yourself” dead in its tracks to lean out in the crowd and tell some dude to knock it the fuck off. “Yo, stop that shit. If you don’t stop…
