Newswire: Marvel realizes it should probably get Michael Douglas for that Ant-Man sequel

After the drama that happened while Ant-Man was being made, with original director Edgar Wright backing out and Marvel quickly trying to find a replacement, it seemed like the film would end up being more trouble than it was worth.

TV Club: Claire has a no good, very bad day in Flesh and Bone’s lackluster second episode

“Episode 2” of Flesh and Bone starts to show its cracks with style overriding the narrative drama. Not a whole lot happens in the second episode that pushes forward the plot of the entire series, which would be fine if this wasn’t a miniseries with only a scant few episodes.

TV Club: The great “Simpson Tide” may be the most ’90s episode of The Simpsons

As American television’s sharpest comedy of the ’90s, The Simpsons understandably bears the marks of the decade that surrounded its most popular and celebrated run. “Simpson Tide” reflects its time more strikingly than most. The references come quickly: Crimson Tide, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, the Clapper, the Bartman, Cindy Crawford, Starbucks, David Schwimmer, the Tailhook scandal, Rodney King, and an […]

Newswire: CBS replaces terrorism-related Supergirl and NCIS: LA episodes

In the wake of Friday’s terrorist attacks in France, CBS has decided to replace Monday’s episodes of Supergirl and NCIS: Los Angeles due to both of them having “terrorism-related plotlines.” That comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which notes that both episodes centered on extremely ill-timed stories: NCIS: LA would’ve been about stopping an attempt to recruit women to join ISIS, […]
