Rachel Brosnahan Fits in Perfectly in the First ‘Saturday Night Live’ of 2019

Rachel Brosnahan has found success pretending to be a comedian on the hit Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (which is worth watching right this very minute if you haven’t already). But how did she fare taking the reins of one of the most revered comedy shows of all time? Saturday Night Live didn’t use Rachel Brosnahan as effectively as fans might have hoped, not giving her much opportunity to play any standout characters, but the actress did feel comfortable on the series, blending in rat...

‘This Giant Beast That is the Global Economy’ Trailer Features Doomsday Prep, Artificial Intelligence, and More

Kal Penn and director Adam McKay want to teach you about the global economy. That doesn’t sound very exciting at first, but just wait – the This Giant Beast That is the Global Economy trailer goes to great lengths to make all of this sexy, funny, and, well, kind of scary.

‘Unsolved Mysteries’ Reboot Coming to Netflix From ‘Stranger Things’ Producer

Unsolved Mysteries, the classic show in which Robert Stack told us all about serial killers, missing people, UFOs, and ghosts, is getting a reboot for Netflix. Shawn Levy, producer of Stranger Things, will oversee the Unsolved Mysteries reboot, which will once again focus on the unexplained and the mysterious. This could be very cool – but it just won’t be the same without Robert Stack. Deadline broke the news about the Unsolved Mysteries reboot, and I’m cautiously optimistic. I was a huge f...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Returns — Midseason Debut Holds Strong

With Meredith and DeLuca trapped in an elevator, Teddy’s baby confession, and some complications with Maggie and Avery, season 15 of Grey’s Anatomy will likely be romance driven. This would be okay if any of those romances actually landed — and for me — they have not. Giacomo Gianniotti (DeLuca) is a welcome addition the … Continue reading "‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Returns — Midseason Debut Holds Strong" The post ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Returns — Midseason Debut Holds Strong appeared first on The Dishmaster.

Netflix Reveals Users’ ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Choices and Teases More Interactive Entertainment

Now the company has pulled back the veil of secrecy and offered a brief peek at some of the Black Mirror: Bandersnatch choices users made when watching the interactive movie. Read on to discover the numbers and a quote from chief conten...

Money talks: UFC reaches ESPN with first fight of $1.5B deal

‘I Am the Night’ Review: Patty Jenkins and Chris Pine Reunite For Some Pulp Fiction

Hard-boiled dialogue. Trips to the morgue. Boozy floozies. Sharp-dressed men lurking in the shadows. Dames, death and danger. We’re knee-deep in the world of pulp and noir. This is a highway trafficked by Raymond Chandler and James Ellroy. Where the women are imperiled, the men are corrupt, and not even all the stars of Hollywood can cut through the darkness.

Critically-Acclaimed ‘The Kominsky Method’ Gets Season 2 Renewal at Netflix

If you’ve been paying attention to the awards circuit over the past few months, you’ve probably noticed that one Netflix show keeps popping up again and again: The Kominsky Method, which stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin. The series hails from creator Chuck Lorre, the guy behind Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory, so naturally I ignored it when it premiered late last year. But the show has been slowly racking up awards and appearing on “best of” lists, and now Netflix has officially ...

‘Creepshow’ TV Series Adapting Stephen King’s Most Disturbing Story

As a horror fan, there’s not much that actually shocks or disturbs me. But there are exceptions. One of those exceptions is Stephen King‘s grisly short story Survivor Type, featured in his collection Skeleton Crew. It’s a queasy, nasty piece of work about a man shipwrecked on a desert island, forced to slowly eat his own body parts to survive. And now, it might be coming to TV. Director and special effects make-up artist Greg Nicotero is currently working on a new Creepshow TV series for Shudde...
