Review: ‘Bob’s Burgers’
Tuesday, January 4 by

“Bob’s Burgers” won’t be the best show on Fox’s Sunday night Animation Domination, but it’s better than “American Dad” or “The Cleveland Show.”

Amber Tamblyn Butts Heads With ‘House’
Monday, November 8 by

I got to see the next two episodes of “House” with guest star Amber Tamblyn as new hire Martha M. Masters. She’s a foil to House’s (Hugh Laurie) abrasive antics because she believes in pure honesty and ethics. Tamblyn revealed in a conference call the other day that there really is a Martha M. Masters.

Fox’s ‘The Chicago Code’ Teaser Won’t Take Your Sh*t
Monday, November 1 by

Fox has unleashed the teaser trailer for their upcoming Chicago cop drama, "The Chicago Code." The series is created by Shawn Ryan, the man behind one of my favorite shows of all time, "The Shield." Don't let the cliché line shouting in the trailer deter you from watching the show when it premieres in February. I've seen the pilot and it is an exciting, well-written piece of television. Ryan knows his cops and his hometown well. He won't get away with the same explicit content that "The Shield" did, but there will be plenty of police brutality. Hey, it's Chicago, fugetaboutit! Ah crap, wrong town.

Aronofsky Watch: One More Step Closer to ‘Wolverine 2′
Monday, October 18 by

The Darren Doppler is tweakin' again. Aronofsky's deal to direct Wolverine 2 is so close to being a real thing that Fox is already talking about concessions of the un-Sour Patch Kids variety. The studio will allow Aronofsky to shoot the sound stage portions of the film in New York so the filmmaker and Hugh Jackman can still go home to their families at night. Production will begin in March, after Aronofsky has had time to pimp Black Swan to the press. After the New York scenes have been shot, the production will move to Japan, far, far away from any wives and kids. You know what that means… Both guys will finally have time to finish The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest novel. They can't wait to see how the Millenium Trilogy ends. (Deadline)

Fox Freaks The Eff Out Over Lindelof’s ‘Alien’ Script
Wednesday, October 13 by

Damon Lindelof has handed in his new draft of the screenplay for Ridley Scott's Alien prequel and the execs at 20th Century Fox have responded: "A+++ will do business with again." It's said that the script is successful on both a creative and budgetary level, and we don't know much more beyond that.
What we do know is that the action takes place 35 years before Ridley Scott's original and follows a female Space Marine General. The studio and director have named Natalie Portman as their top-pick for the role, with Noomi Rapace selected as an alternate. Other names that have been mentioned are Gemma Arterton and Carey Mulligan (who just screams Marine general). And beyond that, nobody knows nothing. People run around and get eaten, I guess.

Darren Aronofsky Watch: One Step Closer To ‘Wolverine 2′
Tuesday, October 12 by

In further Awesome Directors Making Batsh*t Decisions news, Darren Aronofsky is one step closer to directing Wolverine 2, the sequel to a movie that starred Will.I.Am and featured a guy causing a tank to explode by punching it in the cannon.
There was some debate online whether he would choose the comic book movie, or go with Tales From The Gangster Squad late last week. He's reportedly passed on Gangster Squad, leaving his schedule wide-open for Wolvie. Though, no deal is in place and we've heard no official word from his reps, it's likely he'll parlay Black Swan's Oscar buzz into instructing Hugh Jackman to growl. Or he could choose to do a good movie. We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, Nikki Minaj should probably practice surfing on nuclear warheads. (Deadline)

Fox Orders Animated ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ Show
Monday, October 11 by

Fox has picked up 6 episodes of the animated adaptation of 2004's most quoted movie, Napoleon Dynamite. Deadline has the deets:
The original cast of Napoleon Dynamite led by Jon Heder is back to voice the animated series, which follows the misadventures of an awkward high school teenager and his quirky friends as they struggle to navigate life in rural Idaho. The film's writers Jared Hess, who also directed it, and Jerusha Hess wrote the adaptation with The Simpsons veteran Mike Scully.
Seems like the perfect movie to turn animated considering the film itself is insanely over the top. I always understood the llama for a pet and awkward teenage boy desperately in need of psychological counseling, but side ponytails? C'mon, no one wears those anymore!

Banksy Directed ‘The Simpsons’ Intro For Some Reason
Monday, October 11 by

Producers of "The Simpsons" hired British street artist Banksy to direct their opening credits sequence, because after Ke$ha, why the hell not? I don't want to give too much away, but I can say this is the bleakest intro I have ever seen for a cartoon. And, yes, I'm including "The Cleveland Show" in that statement.

‘Fringe’ Hostage Situation Has Anna Torv Frazzled
Thursday, October 7 by

“Fringe” has two alternate universes, double versions of most of the major characters and plenty of secrets. Today it was a regular old action scene that had star Anna Torv frazzled. Scheduled for a conference call with the media, Torv handled Olivia Dunham’s business as quickly as possible, and told the press how her world has become one big police emergency.

“We’re at a train station,” Torv said. “We’ve got a hostage situation today. So we’ve got police cars. That’s the terrible thing. There’s all these flashing lights and ambulances and police cars. I was driving home the other day and saw flashing lights and police cars and thought, ‘I’ll keep going.’ It was only when I got home that I realized oh my god, that was a huge accident. That’s not funny.”

Will Arnett Almost Opened ‘Running Wilde’ With Suicide, Dishes On Future Episodes
Monday, October 4 by

Will Arnett as a billionaire is hilarious, right? “Running Wilde” shows each week how Steven Wilde (Arnett) blows his money in competition with fellow billionaire Fa’ad (Peter Serafinowicz), and creates a wacky surreal world of servants and caretakers. It was actually going to be a lot darker if Arnett had his original vision.

Fox Bites On ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’
Monday, October 4 by

By Guest Columnist and Confederate Apologist Archibald McClintock VI
Based on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has been acquired by Fox. The film will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov, with Tim Burton on board as a producer. Of course these lily-livered Hollywood elitists can not build up the image of a man as loathsome as our 16th chief executive without first tearing down the reputation of Dixie.
"The 'new' history finds Lincoln discovering that Southern plantation owners aren't using slaves for labor, but blood as they are actually evil creatures of the night.  This causes Lincoln to become an Abolitionist and the true motives for the Civil War are born."
The brave sons and daughters of the Confederacy will not sit idly by as the South's good name is dragged through the mud. Any historian worth a damn knows that cases of vampirism in the Antebellum South were minimal, and confined to Papists in Louisiana. I intend to write a letter to all parties involved with this drivel right after I finish cooking meth, watching Nascar, and sleeping with my cousin. (HitFix)

Fox Cancels ‘Lone Star’ After Two Episodes
Wednesday, September 29 by

They didn't even get the chance to shoot cool promo materials.
"Lone Star" is cancelled. The show was considered by many to be the best and brightest of the new season, but after two low-rated airings was put out to pasture by Fox. It's a shame too. I was one of the four people who caught the first episode, and really dug it. Yes, it set itself up to be a little soapy but showed a pride and production value that you don't get with many shows nowadays. The network has pulled all future episodes from the schedule and will replace with new episodes of "Lie to Me." And if that doesn't work, there's always "House" re-runs. As anyone with the USA Network knows. (EW)

Review: ‘Running Wilde’
Monday, September 20 by

I was the only person who liked “Running Wilde” when they sent the original pilot out over the summer. I thought it was very Mitch Hurwitz-y, it made me laugh and I could see where it was going for a series. Of course, I like things no one else likes so they’re not going to cater a show to me. I like the reshot version of the show a little less, but maybe this is what the general public will like.

Will Arnett plays Steven Wilde, a rich trust fund baby who’s somewhat Gob-y, although he was more Gob-y in the original version so maybe one of the notes was “less Gob-y.” He’s somewhat self-centered and oblivious to the world around him. That’s not to say that Arnett is rehashing his character, it’s just funny to base a show around that type of main character and then take him somewhere he couldn’t go as part of an ensemble.

Review: ‘Raising Hope’
Monday, September 20 by

“Raising Hope” is the kind of edgy comedy I want to see on TV. I don’t want to spoil anything because you should experience it fresh like I did, but I could not believe what I was watching. They’re putting this on TV?! And they should. It’s the same half hour whether they go crazy or play it safe, so just go crazy.

The setup it takes to make Jimmy (Lucas Neff) a single dad is outrageous. By about 10 minutes in, I couldn’t believe how far they took it. I don’t know if they’re going to be able to do this every week, but I hope so. Aside from the shocking dark comedy, the humor is just joyfully immature. They say “wiener” and that makes me smile. The characters’ behaviors are so outrageous and politically incorrect, only Fox would put this show on.
