(SPOILER ALERT ALERT) Twitter App Removes Spoilers http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/spoiler-alert-alert-twitter-app-removes-spoilers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/spoiler-alert-alert-twitter-app-removes-spoilers/#comments Wed, 08 May 2013 21:01:08 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=254760 How many people out there actually love TV AND Twitter?

It should be no surprise that people who prefer to digest information in 140-character increments also really, really like their television shows. It’s also of little surprise that they will probably find invaluable something a 17 year-old invents.

Enter Twivo, an app that strips all the spoilers from your Twitter timeline. Actually, it removes all references to TV shows and characters that you select, leaving you with a Twitter feed that’s probably just a bunch of pictures of food with the hashtags #belieber and #selfie.

SOOOOOO, if, for instance, you didn’t want to know that (SPOILER ALERT FOR REALS) Jamie Lanister lost his hand right before a bitchin’ Hold Steady cover of “The Bear and the Maiden Fair,” then you would probably pull “Jamie Lannister” and “Game of Thrones” from your Twitter feed using the app.

You can now find the app as a Chrome plug-in, but expect to see Twivo as a standalone app sometime around the end of this sentence.

Netflix Offers A Trailer For Its First Original Series, ‘Lilyhammer’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/netflix-offers-a-trailer-for-its-first-original-series-lilyhammer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/netflix-offers-a-trailer-for-its-first-original-series-lilyhammer/#comments Tue, 03 Jan 2012 20:37:33 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=241275 Fans of Silvio Dante from 'The Sopranos', this is for you.

That’s right, Lilyhammer. Netflix first (and admittedly, lowest profile when compared to House of Cards and Arrested Development) original series follows The Sopranos‘ Steven Van Zandt as a mobster (!) who enters the witness protection program in Lillehammer, Norway. Of course, we watch him as a fish out of water in both civil matters, and, presumably, watch him fall back into the Scandinavian underworld.

The entire series will be released at once starting on February 6, so you can plow through the eight episode first season run with no waiting. Judging from the trailer, getting through the series should take me about eight hours. This show looks pretty damn good, with a Coen-brothers sensibility; a balance of drama, action, and comedy.

Yay February!

Hoffman And HBO To Bring Us ‘Upstate’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/hoffman-and-hbo-to-bring-us-upstate/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/hoffman-and-hbo-to-bring-us-upstate/#comments Wed, 16 Mar 2011 16:16:35 +0000 Dave Horwitz http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=201881 Philip Seymour Hoffman and HBO are joining forces for a drama about a man, his family and his small town. Emotional hijinx ensue.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman and HBO are teaming up again. In 2005, the actor appeared in the Emmy nominated movie, Empire Falls, and just last year his production shingle Cooper’s Town set up a drama project with the network, based on Samantha Peale’s novel”The American Painter Emma Dial.” Now, he’s teaming up with frequent collaborator Bob Glaudini (Jack Goes Boating) and”Hung” writer Brett C. Leonard on “Upstate,” a new drama about a recently fired man who moves his family to a rural town to be an officer at a new for profit private prison. Roy eventually encounters “conflict and danger inside and outside the prison walls.”

Uh oh, could small town life be less innocent than it seems? Could there be a darkness lurking in the shadows of suburbia? Someone alert Alan Ball! Sound the Arcade Fire Alarm! Get me The Chumscrubber! And of course, my real opinion is, Hoffman’s a smart man with interesting taste who makes strong choices. This sounds very promising. (Deadline)
