Ray Donovan Renewed for Season 6 — But a 'Big' Change Is In Store
Ray Donovan has been renewed — and, more importantly, relocated.
Showtime announced Monday that it is bringing the Liev Schreiber fixer drama back for a sixth season, but that’s only half the story. The more interesting news is that after five years in Los Angeles the series is shifting its setting to New York City.
The 12-episode, Big Apple-set season will begin production in early 2018 and debut later that year.
The renewal comes just days before Ray Donovan airs its Season 5 finale (Sunday, 9/8c), an episode that was partially shot in NYC. »
Ashley Judd Sets First TV Interview After Harvey Weinstein Allegation
Ashley Judd, whose sexual harassment allegation against Harvey Weinstein helped take down the disgraced power producer, will give her first television interview since the fallout to ABC News’ Diane Sawyer.
Although Judd told Variety in 2015 about her borrowing experience being sexually harassed by a mogul, she declined to name him at the time. The “Kiss the Girls” actress went pubic with the allegations in an Oct. 5 article in the New York Times, which led dozens of other women to come forward with their own stories about sexual misconduct. The bombshell report chronicled decades of sex harassment allegations and revealed that Weinstein reached confidential settlements with at least eight women, including Rose McGowan.
“Women have been talking about Harvey amongst ourselves for a long time, and it’s simply »

Kit Harington's New TV Show Is as Gory as Game of Thrones
If you thought Kit Harington's new show Gunpowder was going to be a typical BBC drama - a lavish historical adaptation with plenty of big names and beautiful cinematography - prepare to be shocked. Sure, the UK the series definitely packs a punch when it comes to star power, with Harington joined by stars like Liv Tyler and Mark Gatiss. The setting is definitely atmospheric, too, but it's also unforgiving when it comes to showing the realities of life in England in the 17th century. Following in the footsteps of shows like Taboo and Peaky Blinders, it heads into seriously dark territory. In the first episode alone, viewers witness brutal executions played out in their full gory glory, including one particularly gruesome moment when a young priest is hung, drawn, and quartered. The Guardian describes the show as "Game of Thrones minus dragons plus history", and it's true that thematically and visually, »

'The Deuce' Recap: Welcome to New York
Let's get this out of the way: What we have just witnessed was, hands down, the best episode of The Deuce yet. By a lot. Titled "Au Reservoir," it's funny, scary, sad, sexy and entertaining as hell from start to finish. How did this so-so show get so damned good so suddenly?
The answers may lie behind the scenes. This episode was directed by co-star James Franco, who previously helmed one of the series' better installments. Judging from his two turns in the driver's seat, he's got a knack for »

Davos and Shireen Easter Egg Hinted at a Game of Thrones Twist
Liam Cunningham has stated that his character’s reading scene with Shireen in Season 3 of Game of Thrones was an Easter egg inserted by the show-runners. For those who are unfamiliar with the scene, it saw Shireen teaching Davos to read by using a history of the first king of a united Westeros, Aegon the Conqueror. With better framing, it might have served as an excellent example of foreshadowing, but under the circumstances, calling it an Easter egg is the best that it can hope for. Why Jon Snow’s “Real” Name Was a Bad Choice With that said, it seems

Kim Cattrall Suggests Sex and the City 3 Should Recast Samantha Jones With a Black or Hispanic Actress — Watch
Kim Cattrall may be done playing Sex and the City‘s Samantha Jones — like, so done — but that doesn’t necessarily mean the character needs to stay dead and buried. (Dressed in something fabulous, no doubt).
In a new interview with Piers Morgan, Cattrall — who appeared in all 94 episodes of the HBO series (1998–2004), as well as its two follow-up films (2008 and 2010) — recalls her decision not to reprise the role for a third movie in Dec. 2016, saying that her answer was simply “Thank you, but no.”
As for the subsequent rumors that she was being “demanding or a diva,” Cattrall puts »

‘Stranger Things 2’ is a Completely Different Experience Than Season 1 Because of Everything Off-Screen
“Stranger Things” was a slow-growing phenomenon. “Stranger Things 2” will be a three-day event. So whether you like the new episodes or not, “Things” has changed.
Like the blockbuster sequel to a surprise indie hit, budget isn’t the only difference since the world first discovered the little Netflix-show-that-could in 2016. Season 2 will be absorbed by our culture differently because it will be absorbed by individuals differently, and recognizing this fact before diving into “Stranger Things 2” is important for processing the nine new episodes.
Just think about one word: Barb. Before Season 1, Barb was just a shorter version of the formal “Barbara,” or perhaps a reference to a sharp retort. Now, Barb carries conflicting connotations for everyone who’s seen “Stranger Things”: There are Barb lovers, Barb haters, and those who never want to hear Barb’s name again because we can’t stop talking about Barb. The phenomenon that drove »

’Star Trek: Discovery’: New Klingon Design Influenced by H.R. Giger and Bryan Fuller
The new design for the Klingons in “Star Trek: Discovery” has been polarizing with fans. Some are intrigued by the new take on the bellicose alien species, while others decry what they perceived to be flouting canon. On the most recent “After Trek,” lead creature designer Neville Page and prosthetics/special FX makeup effects department head Glenn Hetrick explained that Bryan Fuller, who has since departed the show, was a huge influence on what the revamped Klingons look like.
“The biggest thing we did was we removed the hair,” Page said, which allowed the prosthetics department to reveal “detail on the back of the head… and the cool stuff underneath.”

Kit Harington Apologizes For Those Pesky Comments About Men Experiencing Sexism
It appears Kit Harington has been boning up on his feminist literature. The “Game of Thrones” star retracted and apologized for an earlier statement about men experiencing “sexism” in the entertainment industry. “[T]here’s a sexism that happens towards men…as well,” Harington told The Cut last year, prompting the ire of feminist writers and Jon Snow fans everywhere. Harington recently set the record straight, however, amending his statement with what sounds like genuine understanding and empathy.
“I was wrong there, though,” he told The Guardian. “Sexism against men is not something I should have really said. I think what I meant was, being objectified.” He continued:
“At that time, I did feel objectified… I do think men can get objectified. I do feel I have been objectified in the past, »

Outlander Review: A Reunion 200 Years In The Making
We can now confirm with 100% certainty that Droutlander is officially over! As anticipated as Outlander’s third season was, it was nothing compared to the excruciating wait for the pivotal moment when Jamie and Claire finally reunited. With the infamous Print Shop scene, that moment finally happens. If you thought “The Wedding” was emotional, that is nothing compared to the fiery passion and tear-jerking sentimentality that was “A. Malcolm”. Be advised, the following episode and recap is not suitable for children, and contains spoilers. Before picking up where “Fire & Whiskey” left off, we back up about an hour or
