AMC has released a 30-second The Walking Dead teaser clip from the upcoming fifth season.  I don’t keep up with the show, but from what I know about it, this clip seems spot on: humans are afraid of zombies, and the zombie makeup effects are awesome.  Beyond that, I leave it to the fans to sound off on this brief teaser.

Watch One of the Most Elaborate Dick Jokes in History from the SILICON VALLEY Season Finale

Creator Mike Judge’s new comedy series Silicon Valley just concluded its freshman season on HBO, and while arguably the best part of the series has been lost (Christopher Evan Welch, who played the eccentric Peter Gregory, sadly passed away during filming), there’s still a lot to love about the show.  Case in point, the season finale included what is quite possibly the most elaborate dick joke ever told on film, and it is glorious.  The clip landed online yesterday, but as of right now HBO has not yet pulled it down.  I assume this means they’re fine with everyone sharing it because it’s so damn funny.  If you haven’t seen Silicon Valley, take a gander at what your missing, and if you have, the joke is still just as funny the second time around.

Miller, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Amanda Crew, and Zach Woods.

This weekend at WonderCon, Disney premiered the first Star Wars Rebels clip.  The animated series will take place about 14 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith and centers on the fledgling rebellion as the Empire hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights to secure rule of the galaxy.  I never watched any of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, so I don’t know how this will compare, but I assume it’s going for the same audience.

Watch the Incredible Six-Minute Tracking Shot from Sunday’s Episode of TRUE DETECTIVE

by     Posted 220 days ago

HBO’s True Detective is one of the best things happening right now; not just in TV, but across any medium.  The ambitious anthology series follows two detectives played by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as they recount, in frame story, a case they worked in the 1990s.  All eight episodes of the first season were written by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre), bringing a fantastic consistency and cohesiveness to each episode.  The performances by McConaughey and Harrelson are absolutely phenomenal, the storytelling is unendingly compelling and thought-provoking, and Fukunaga’s direction is inspired.

This past Sunday’s episode “Who Goes There” concluded with a six-minute long intricate, intense tracking shot that showcases the very best of what True Detective has to offer, and the shot is now available online to watch in all its glory.  It’s a jaw-dropping piece of work that speaks volumes about the talent involved in this show.  Watch the shot after the jump, and if you haven’t seen True Detective yet, I highly suggest rectifying that immediately.

Comics legend Stan Lee recently turned 91 but he’s set to tackle TV across mediums this year.  We already know that he’ll appear on an upcoming episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but now we have a look at Lee in animated form for his appearance on a new episode of The Simpsons.  While this will mark Lee’s second time on the show, it will be the first animated adventure for long-time author Harlan Ellison, who will also be playing himself.  The episode, titled “Married to the Blob”, airs on Fox this Sunday at 8pm.  Hit the jump to watch the behind-the-scenes featurette.

First Clip from MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Episode 2

ABC has released the first clip from next week’s episode of the new drama series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  Developed by Joss Whedon, the show premiered last week to impressive ratings, scoring the best debut of a new drama in all of television since 2009’s V.  In this new clip, we see “hacker” Skye (Chloe Bennet) officially joining the S.H.I.E.L.D. team as Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson debates the decision with his cohorts.  Our recapper was quite taken with the premiere episode, but personally I found it to be wholly underwhelming.  The production value is surprisingly cheap and the plot development felt more like an episode of NCIS than a comic book series.  That being said, pilots aren’t always a great judge of a show’s quality, so I’m hoping that the character development improves in subsequent episodes.

Hit the jump to watch the clip and sound off in the comments with your first impressions of the show.  Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on ABC Tuesday nights at 8/7c.

Last night during Low Winter Sun, AMC released a short clip from the upcoming season of The Walking Dead.  I ceased watching this show a long time ago, but if you’re still on board, perhaps you’ll find this an exciting 45 seconds, especially if you’re a fan of Michonne (Danai Gurira).

Four clips have been released for the fourth season of Arrested Development.  Earlier this week, I posted six questions about the upcoming season, and these clips provide some answers.  First, the language will still be bleeped, which is a nice touch (although we don’t know if it will be bleeped throughout the season; it’s just bleeped in this instance).  Also, there’s a throwback to the confusion regarding bees and beads.

The first clip from the new batch of Arrested Development episodes has landed online, and it appears that the relationship between Tony Hale’s Buster and Jessica Walter’s Lucille hasn’t changed a bit.  The clip provides a tiny hint as to what Lucille has been up to since the events of the season three finale, but mainly it just showcases the series’ wonderful sense of humor that’s been sorely missing from our lives for far too long.  Additionally, Netflix has released a new batch of character posters for the new episodes that features the entire cast along with some rather familiar taglines.

Hit the jump to check out the clip and posters, and if you missed the EW covers and new images from yesterday, click here.  Netflix will release all 15 new episodes of Arrested Development at once on May 26th.

Showtime Confirms DEXTER’S Upcoming Eighth Season Will Be Its Last; Watch a Clip from the Final Season

by     Posted 1 year, 154 days ago

dexter-season-8-slice

It’s officially official, folks: Dexter has run its course.  While producers of the wildly popular Showtime series had previously stated that they began season seven with the intention that the show would come to an end at the conclusion of season eight, the network had yet to publicly confirm an end date.  Now Showtime has confirmed that the upcoming eighth season of Dexter will in fact be its last.  The Michael C. Hall-fronted series continues to be a ratings draw for the pay cable network, but its quality has been a bit of a roller coaster over the past few seasons.

The first teaser trailer for season eight hinted at the titular character hitting a breaking point this year, and it’ll be interesting to see what kind of endgame the producers have in mind given the events that transpired last season.  Yvonne Strahovski, who appeared in a multi-episode arc last year, is confirmed to be returning for this final season, so might Dex get a semi-happy ending after all?  We’ll find out for sure this summer when season eight of Dexter premieres on Sunday, June 30th.  Hit the jump to watch a sneak peek clip from the final season.

First 7 Minutes of NBC’s New Drama, AWAKE

by     Posted 2 years, 217 days ago

awake-slice

My most-anticipated new show of the 2011-2012 television season is AwakeJason Isaacs stars as a cop who’s in a car accident with his family, and now he’s living in two realities: one where his son (Dylan Minnette) survived and one where his wife (Laura Allen) survived.  The question is which one is the dream and which one is reality?  It’s a terrific premise that could easily run out of steam in a short amount of time, but it’s more original than almost any other new show on network TV.  Hopefully, they find a way to build on the premise rather than use it as a hook and nothing more.

The first seven minutes have gone online, and after watching them, I’m still jazzed for this show.  I like the way it’s shot and the pacing, and (less surprising) Isaacs is great. If you’ve seen the extended trailer, there’s not a tone of new stuff, but now you can see it in context.  Hit the jump to check out the first seven minutes of Awake.  The series premieres on Thursday, March 1st at 10/9c on NBC.

Liam Neeson Knows AIDS Is Ripe for Improvisational Comedy in New Clip from LIFE’S TOO SHORT

Last month, we showed you a clip from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant‘s new TV series Life’s Too Short starring Warwick Davis (Harry Potter).  The clip had Johnny Depp lampooning himself by going after Gervais’ hosting of the Golden Globes.  It was pretty funny and it was good to know that someone was looking out for Tim Allen.  This new clip absolutely blows it away.  In the latest clip, Liam Neeson comes in to talk with Gervais and Merchant about expanding into comedy.  Neeson, Gervais, and Merchant use Neeson’s dramatic gravitas to brilliant effect and show that improv, Oscar-nominees, and contracting AIDS from an African prostitute is an odd but hilarious mixture.

Hit the jump to check out the clip.  Life’s Too Short began airing yesterday on BBC Two and will air in the US on HBO next year.
