Best TV to See in April: 'American Gods,' the Return of 'Fargo' and More
8 hours ago
What's in store for TV in April, you ask? NBC will see if they still remember how to successfully launch a half-hour comedy. HBO unveils a one-two punch (one doc, one based-on-a-true-story drama) about women's-health issues. FX brings back one of its Mvp anthology shows. AMC tries their hand (again) at a Western, and Fox launches millions of utterances of "Oh yeah, I remember Prison Break ... wasn't that the one where they break out of the prison?"

Why 'The Expanse' Is the Best Sci-fi TV Show You're Not Watching
10 hours ago
Quick, name the last great science fiction TV show you've seen. HBO's Westworld might count, though that's almost as much western as it is sci-fi. Orphan Black and Black Mirror have some of sci-fi elements, sure, but they aren't quite representative of the genre. You may have to go all the way back to Battlestar Galactica, which went off the air in 2009, to find a show that's done for sci-fi what Game of Thrones has done for fantasy or The Walking Dead has done for horror.
But here's the thing: »

Fowl Play: Saying Goodbye to 'Duck Dynasty,' TV's Worst Show
12 hours ago
These days it's tough to find reasons to be cheerful about the state of the nation – but an America without Duck Dynasty is a good place to start. No show in television history has ever sucked quite like this one. And if the TV gods are willing, no show ever will.
A&E's massive hit became a cultural presence in 2012 for its down-home charm – the zany adventures of a real-life Lousiana clan who kept their country manners and backwoods habits, with Phil, Miss Kay, their bearded sons and loopy Vietnam vet Uncle Si. »

Watch Kristen Bell, James Corden Perform Awkward Aerial Duet
14 hours ago
On Tuesday's Late Late Show, Kristen Bell and James Corden were physically moved by the power of love – but they weren't moved to the same spot. The actress and host sang the classic Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes' duet "Up Where We Belong," made hilarious by fake production errors.
The duo began on the stage, with Bell showcasing her warm vibrato and Corden channeling Cocker's trademark gravelly croon. But the vibe turned comedic seconds later, as the CHiPS actress was lifted way above the host, who hung mere feet off the stage. »

'The Boss Baby' Review: This Is Not the Trump-Trolling Toon You're Looking For
14 hours ago
Let's address the elephant-sized diaper in the room, shall we? No, The Boss Baby is not about Donald Trump. Not that director Tom McGrath, or screenwriter Michael McCullers, or anyone at Fox or Dreamworks Animation would ever say that it was; it's safe to assume that this adaptation of Marla Frazee's 2010 children's book was in the works long before our current administration slithered its way into office. But given that this tiny tyrant is voiced by none other than Alec Baldwin, who's carved out a lucrative side career imitating an infantile commander-in-chief, »

Scarlett Johansson, Saturday Night Live's Michael Che and Disney Channel actress Dove Cameron joined Jimmy Fallon for a hilarious, surreal game of "Virtual Reality Pictionary" on The Tonight Show Monday.
The game pitted Fallon and Cameron against Johansson and Che, and consisted of normal Pictionary rules – except with a Vr headset, sketching in air, with their doodling projected on a screen behind them.
Both teams got off to an impressive start, with Cameron guessing Fallon's "Clown Car" drawing quickly and Che figuring out Johansson's "Pinball Machine," despite the actress »

28 March 2017 6:53 AM, PDT
Aside from the guaranteed global behemoth F8 of the Furious, a.k.a. Furious 8, a.k.a. All in the Fambly, this April is conspicuously blockbuster-lite. (Unless you count Smurfs: The Lost Village, and we do not.) No better time, then, to do a bit of exploring around the indie fringes. Offbeat genre pictures are abound this month, from a sleazy revenge picture to a slippery character study/kaiju movie combo to a virtuosic opera of gunfire. Elsewhere, Tom Hanks tackles a technothriller, Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson venture into »
