But the latest addition to the club has been getting the comparison since the project was first announced.Amazon's upcoming fantasy epic, "The Wheel of Time" shares much in common with HBO's crown jewel — bot...

How did The Morning Show become the messiest show on TV?

In its second season, the star-studded Apple TV drama is a chaotic, uneven and ham-fisted yet compulsively watchable rumination on workplace ethics amid the pandemicWatching The Morning Show, Apple TV+’s messy, star-studded morning news drama whose second season premiered this fall, is for me a very vocal experience – the road from concept to execution so bumpy and the choices so chaotic as to provoke several guffaws an episode. The biggest “NO” comes in the beginning of the second season’s thir...

Why Peaky Blinders Is Ending – Here's What We Know

It was announced in January of 2021 that the currently in-development sixth season of "Peaky Blinders" (that'd be sixth series for our friends across the pond) would ultimately be the show's last. That would've seemed to bring an end to the small-screen scramble for power and influence that Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy) and his family-fronted gang of Peaky Blinders had first embarked upon with the first season back in September 2013. But while the tentative plans for a seventh season may have b...

Lost in translation? The one-inch truth about Netflix’s subtitle problem

Subtitling is an essential art form. So why, as the streaming giant scores more global hits with shows like Squid Game and Call My Agent, isn’t it trying harder to find the right words?“Once you overcome the one-inch-tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films.” So said the director Bong Joon-ho, as he accepted his best picture Oscar for Parasite in 2020, in a not-so-subtle dig at the dominance of English language content. The success of Netflix’s Korean serie...

When Hollywood Is For Sale: What Media Mergers Mean For Movie Lovers

For those who have any interest in media, be it from Hollywood's perspective or purely from a business side of things, it is no secret that media consolidation has been a big thing in recent years. This, arguably, hit its apex of public interest when Disney completed its buyout of the majority of Fox's media assets in 2019. But, in less flashy ways for the general public, this is a trend that has only ramped up in recent years, especially in 2021. While it might not make for sexy bar talk, this ...

Squid Game Star Jung Ho-Yeon Failed One Of The 'Games' In Real Life

Spoilers through episode 3 of "Squid Game."It might sound odd, but part of what makes Netflix's new global sensation, "Squid Game," so utterly horrific is all the nostalgia. The "Battle Royale"-esque storyline sees hundreds of contestants competing in various games for an enormous sum of money. Except, rather than fight to the death, they're playing a bunch of drastically scaled-up children's games. You might recall fond childhood memories of playing "red light, green light" in the park or schoo...

Foundation Review – Series Pushes Limits Of “Adaptation”

There are a variety of reasons that a book can hold onto the consensus opinion that it is unfilmable, but these are frequently overcome with time and ultimately involve special effects or other advances in filmcraft. The solution to the problem of adapting to visual media comes when someone decides they have a way to make it look like we’re in space, or whatever. The other side of the seemingly insurmountable hurdle to moving from page to screen is when you have a work in which nothing actua...
