This reminds me. I need to finish the first season of Jessica Jones. I was enjoying it before I stopped, and she was easily my favorite part of The Defenders.
I’m just going to be agnostic about the idea of a Slaughterhouse-Five adaptation. Yes, Vonnegut is a top five author for me. No, I don’t think it’s likely this show will be fantastic. But yes, I’m willing to give it a shot. If it sucks? So it goes.
Altered Carbon is one of my favorite books of all time, and I’ve been equal parts terrified and excited about Netflix’s forthcoming adaptation. However, I’m completely fucking stoked after watching this trailer.
Jon Hamm. Doing Jon Hamm things. Smoldering, posing, looking well dressed. I don’t know Good Omens, I ain’t opposed to it, and Hamm definitely excites me.
Mindhunter fucking owns. A quiet, disturbing, gorgeously shot meditation on the human psyche, and uh, serial killers, I’ve been obsessed with it since Netflix dropped it. I knew that the company had commissioned a second season way back. However, them motherfuckers have officially gone ahead and renewed it. Like, whatever the fuck the difference the difference is there.
Hey, Starz. What the fuck. If you want a premium fucking cable show, you need to invest a premium cable budget. But nah, you’re not willing, and you lose the brilliant as fuck Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. The brilliant creatives who gave the world the first season of American Gods. Man, I don’t know how to react any other way than with disappointment about this shit.
Lost in the brilliance of Dave Chappelle and Chappelle’s Show is the fact that the classic was co-created by Neal Brennan. Dude fucking rules, and now he’s bringing a late-night show into the world.
That ‘Lord of the Rings’ TV series for Amazon is going to be a prequel. ‘Cause why not the teats must be milked
Hey! How do the powers that be at Amazon compensate for pretty much all of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit having been beaten into paste, snorted, puked up, and snorted again? ‘Cause, you know, they’ve got a TV series coming? Prequel, baby! Ah yes, that insipid fucking narrative technique.
The motherfuckin’ creator of John Wick is adapting the Hitman franchise for Hulu. As far as pairings between talent and content go, this is pretty fucking perfect.
I thought Peter Jackson and his nauseating ocular puke jobs masquerading as Hobbit movies had already stretched Tolkien as far as he could go. But, I was wrong! Amazon is taking another stab at extracting every ounce of wonder from the franchise.
