Performer of the Week: Nicole Kidman
The Performer | Nicole Kidman
The Show | Big Little Lies
The Episode | “Once Bitten” (March 19, 2017)
The Performance | All season long on HBO’s Big Little Lies, Kidman’s character Celeste has projected the perfect façade: perfect marriage, perfect kids, perfect life. But in this week’s “Once Bitten,” that façade finally developed a few tiny cracks in it — allowing Kidman to deliver an astonishingly vulnerable performance.
Celeste’s marriage to Perry is volatile, and often violent, and Kidman has brought a fascinating complexity to that, with Celeste defending her husband’s abusive outbursts, and even admitting to being turned on by them. »
‘Into the Badlands’: The Hong Kong Secret That Makes the Show’s Amazing Martial Arts Possible
The “Into the Badlands” set is a fascinating aural environment when the show’s epic fights are filmed.
That’s thanks to the blend of accents amongst the crew — American, English, Irish — as well as the Cantonese instructions being barked out as The Widow (Emily Beecham), Tilda (Ally Ioannides), and their many stunt doubles spin about and spar with each other, filming action so in-your-face that before certain shots, cameramen have to put on lacrosse helmets.

It’s a blend of sounds that echo the show’s own eclectic nature. “Badlands” has stood out since its premiere in November 2015 as a show that blends genres and boasts one of the most bonkers narratives on television. Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where fighting ability might be the only thing that keeps you from a bloody (and we mean Bloody) death, »

The Best Selling Consoles and Games In History
What was your favorite gaming system as a kid or even now? I’m an old school Nes guy though there are two other systems in my life I was addicted to as well. The first was Sega Genesis. I swear I must have played Altered Beast for 50 straight hours when I first got my Genesis. The next would be Super Nintendo. Playing Street Fighter II on there with my special 6 button joystick took up more time than probably anything else over the span of 3 months. The funny thing is that these systems don’t even compare to

Internet Mocks Lavar Ball With Memes After UCLA Loses To Kentucky
Normally a photo like this is devastating. It’s the picture of a father whose son just lost one of the biggest games of his basketball life. After UCLA lost to Kentucky last night, Lavar Ball wept for his son Lonzo Ball who he’s been touting as being one of the best NBA prospects of all-time. The press that Lavar Ball has been receiving has mostly been bad. Many people, including myself think that his ludicrous statements like his sons being better than Steph Curry or that he himself would beat Michael Jordan in a game of one on one, are

Conservative Pac TV Spots Prematurely Thank Gop For Defeating Obamacare
Last night, back-patting commercials bought by the right-leaning American Action Network Pac went off as planned, even though Trumpcare didn’t. In a batch of local-market commercials running during CBS’s March Madness games, the Pac ads boasted, “Republicans are keeping their promises, with a new plan for better health care, more choices and lower costs.” Doctors, the ads continued, would be back in charge. The spots ended with tailored conclusions thanking local… »

Last Man Standing: Kyle Has a “Bad Heir Day”
One of the very best things about Last Man Standing is that even when it doesn’t totally hit the mark in every single episode, or in every single facet of an episode, there is a redeeming quality that sticks with the audience. In long 22-episode-or-more seasons this approach is excellent, because even when part of an episode was forgettable, the most important part is what audiences remember. This week on Last Man Standing: Mike and Vanessa are planning to ask Kyle and Mandy to move out. Chuck’s contact at the county clerk’s office finds out some information about Kyle’s mom, and shares it with

The Best of the Late Show’s Big Furry Hat
In the very spirit of Carnac the Magnificent, Stephen Colbert has adopted his own Johnny Carson “esque” segment called “The Big Furry Hat.” For those of you who don’t remember Carnac the Magnificent on Johnny Carson, he was of Carson’s most well-known characters. Carnac was a “mystic from the East” who could psychically “divine” unknown answers to unseen questions. The character was introduced in 1964. As Carnac, Carson wore a large feathered turban and a cape. The character would emerge from behind the show’s curtain accompanied by Indian music, and make his way towards the desk, where he would invariably

Death Note: Hollywood’s Second Chance at Adapting Anime in 2017
One of the last, largely untapped wells of film adaptations in the west is anime: the peculiar brand of Japanese animation that has swept the globe over the past several decades. Like video games, it has proven an especially difficult nut to crack, with concerns over white-washing culturally specific narratives and condensing seasons worth of material into just an hour or two. Hollywood has proven to be even less successful at this than at cashing in on popular video games. Sure, video game adaptations have had their share of infamous stinkers, but they’ve had their share of passable works too.

‘Bob’s Burgers’: The Most Optimistic Show on TV? Cast and Creator Champion Positivity at PaleyFest
Fans feed off television for different reasons. You might watch “The Americans” for the thrills or “Veep” to learn a few new insults, but the cast and creator of “Bob’s Burgers” made a compelling case for finding compassion through TV while speaking at PaleyFest Friday night.
“We’re in a moment when you have to make a choice to be optimistic,” creator Loren Bouchard said. “We made that choice with this show. The family itself is optimistic.”
“It’s not a part of the show that we set out explicitly to include,” he said. “But, in this day and age, I find myself thinking it’s an essential element of the show.”
“It’s one of the best parts of ‘Bob’s Burgers,’ that they’re in tough straits.” star H. Jon Benjamin added. “I think that’s the heart of the show: They’re a struggling family that »

Sleepy Hollow: Future Molly Frees Ichabod. Henry Returns.
As the song goes, “War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing!”. Though in Malcolm’s case, it means everything. In tonight’s episode of Sleepy Hollow, we get a glimpse of the future that Malcolm Dreyfuss wanted if it all went according to plan. A word of warning, it’s not going to be pretty. The backstory of future Molly’s journey back in time was insightful. When Molly attacked Jenny and her army of Freedom Fighters, I thought that she had gone to the dark side permanently. Despite the fact that Malcolm put lies into her mind, Ichabod (albeit a much older

Bill Maher Gets No Smiles From Tyranny Expert: “I’m Not Going To Laugh At Any Of That”
Update with video, below Bill Maher couldn’t get so much as a chuckle out of his history professor guest tonight when the subject turned to dictators.

"Yeah, right, so I'm not going to laugh at any of that,” Snyder said on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, “because in your world it's Third… »
