Easter Eggs And References In Muppets Haunted Mansion You May Have Missed

Creepy and goofy are not mutually exclusive experiences. The mood of Disney's iconic Haunted Mansion ride is the result of a disagreement between two Imagineers, Marc Davis and Claude Coats, in the '60s. Coats wanted to make something genuinely scary. Davis wanted the attraction to be more fun. In the end, the Haunted Mansion is both; the mansion is brimming with silly gags, but still runs chills up guests' spines using a flurry of technological and illusory wonders.In 1969, three years after Wa...

32 Days of Halloween XIV: Day #21

Orson Welles in Suspense,Easter 2016, & ANTS! First things first for today: we’re back to the old-time radio show Suspense, with an episode starring Orson Welles from 1944. It’s “The Dark Tower.” No, not that one. Next, we go to an interesting one: this is from Play for Tomorrow, from 1982. It was a six-part sci-fi anthology series from across the pond. Students in a college in Northern Ireland decide to commemorate the centenary of the Easter of 1916. Look out for Bill Nighy,...

Barry Season 3 Is Almost Finished Filming, Season 4 Has Been Written

In recent years, Bill Hader has become a true comedic treasure, especially by creating and starring in the HBO hit series, "Barry." Hader plays a Marine-turned-hitman for hire named Barry Berkman who starts to lose his passion for killing and crime sprees. Instead, he accidentally discovers an acting class that allows him the freedom to express himself in ways he never thought he could. While he attempts to trade in a life hidden in the shadows for one in the spotlight, Barry finds love (Sarah G...

The 13 Best Game Of Thrones Characters Who Weren't In The Show

Adapting a book for television is a tricky business, especially when you're dealing with source material that encompasses several novels that aren't complete yet. There is always going to be controversy over which characters get left out.George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire," adapted into HBO's mega-hit "Game of Thrones," has several point-of-view characters and literally hundreds of supporting characters, so it was inevitable that the story would have to be truncated by the showrunners...

10 Things You Didn't Know About Moon Knight

Can a tweet break the discourse? London's own Sunday Times tried its darnedest in early August, 2021. It postulated that the role of Tony Stark -- a.k.a. Iron Man -- could have been played by any actor in Jon Faverau's "Iron Man" and the picture would have still succeeded. Never mind that box-office mainstay Tom Cruise was attached to Iron Man before Robert Downey Jr., the question has now been raised: Could any actor have donned Shellhead's costume and made Marvel matter again?The answer is com...

Showtime's The First Lady: Everything We Know So Far

If there's any topic above all others that I personally don't need to see covered in our entertainment anytime soon, it's recreations of our past and present circumstances during this pandemic. Coming in at a close second would be depictions of the last four or five years of politics in the United States, for very obvious reasons. Thankfully, Showtime's "The First Lady" anthology series looks to be steering well clear of both areas, instead focusing on dramatizing the lives of three First Ladies...

Ruby Rose Shares What Really Happened On The Set Of Batwoman: 'Enough Is Enough'

What a mess. Fans of the CW "Batwoman" series found out last year that the star of the show, Ruby Rose, would abruptly be stepping down from the role. At the time, both Rose and the "Batwoman" producers painted it as a mutual parting of ways, with no hard feelings on either side. Obviously, carefully formulated PR statements rarely tell the whole truth -- an update to the original report indicated that "...it wasn't 100-percent [Rose's] decision. It was a breakup. [They weren't] happy working on...

David Gordon Green Is Not Worried About The New Hellraiser Movie Competing With His TV Series

There are two different "Hellraiser" projects on the way. There's a new movie from director David Bruckner, and there's also a TV show that will have a pilot episode helmed by "Halloween Kills" director David Gordon Green. Bruckner's film, which will star Jamie Clayton as the new Pinhead, will drop on Hulu, while the "Hellraiser" TV series is headed to HBO, and, by all accounts, both projects are completely separate – they have nothing to do with each other, other than the fact that they're both...

Why Netflix's The OA Was Canceled – Here's What We Know

Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij's Netflix series "The OA" never exactly took the world by storm, but by the time the show was abruptly canceled in 2019, it had certainly left a mark as one of the most unconventional pieces of science fiction storytelling of the modern era. To even attempt to concisely sum up the plot would be a fool's errand – I mean, this is a show that features a telepathic octopus and a series of dance moves that help prevent a school shooting, to name just two of its weirder...

Derry Girls: Will There Be A Season 3?

People who were teenagers in the '90s just love talking about how brilliant it was growing up in the decade of the Macarena, Game Boys, and Cool Britannia. Yet while the 1980s has enjoyed an extended love-in through TV and movies, nostalgia hounds hankering for quality '90s throwbacks have so far been short served. That's why "Derry Girls," with its affectionate nods to the fads of the decade and a canny soundtrack ranging from Ace of Base to Whigfield, was such a blast. Or lush, mint, wicked, c...

Amazon Is Already Spending Game Of Thrones Money To Make The Wheel Of Time

In case you haven't heard the big news — the next "Game of Thrones" is on the way! It's called... "Westworld"? Or maybe "The Witcher"? Perhaps it's "The Expanse"? Or Amazon's "Lord of the Rings"? So many shows have had the title thrown their way, that it's getting pretty hard to keep track. 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...

Not too long ago, the neighboring crime solvers were complete strangers — Charles (Steve Martin), a lonely, washed up TV star; Oliver (Martin Short), a hyperactive, struggling Broadway director; and Mabel (Selena Gomez), an artist still stuck in the past.

After Halloween season is over with, it'll probably be a good idea to hunker down at home and not leave the house until the new year begins.

Will There Be A Made For Love Season 2?

The original dark-comedy series for HBO Max, "Made For Love," is like taking an episode of "Black Mirror," splicing it with 2020's "The Invisible Man" and running it through a comedy filter. Based on Alissa Nutting's 2017 novel of the same name, "Made For Love" is about a woman named Hazel (Cristin Milioti) who escapes from an awful 10-year-long marriage to a tech billionaire named Byron (Billy Magnussen) and the virtual reality complex where they lived for a decade without ever leaving. After s...

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

Impeachment: American Crime Story review – Clinton-Lewinsky drama is a salacious sensation

Starring Sarah Paulson and Beanie Feldstein, Ryan Murphy’s 10-part series on the infamous White House affair is propulsive, addictive and shot through with comedyThere is nothing stranger than the recent past.

The late 90s is his most fertile seam, furnishing all three parts of his American Crime Story anthology. The opening season gave him his first – and unexpected – p...

Every The Office Season Ranked Worst To Best

One of my favorite moments from NBC's "The Office" doesn't make many sites' best scene lists, nor is it beloved by fans (or even its cast and crew, to be honest). But I'll just say it: The scene from "Dunder Mifflin Infinity" in which Michael and Dwight retrieve their old-school gift basket from an indifferent client is "The Office" at its best. The scene is funny. The scene is sad. Most importantly, the scene features characters who are striving for greatness as they nosedive towards failure, g...
