‘Atlanta’ Season 2 Review: ‘Robbin’ Season’ Changes the Game with Sharp New Episodes That’ll Leave You On Edge

‘Atlanta’ Season 2 Review: ‘Robbin’ Season’ Changes the Game with Sharp New Episodes That’ll Leave You On Edge
There is no “B.A.N.” in the first three episodes of “Atlanta” Season 2. Anyone expecting the long-awaited follow-up to Donald Glover’s breakout FX comedy to be as earth-shatteringly on point as its Season 1 peak needs to know a) that’s not happening, and b) that’s not how it happened last time. Meticulous but surprising, the initial 90 minutes of “Robbin’ Season” are laudable independent entries — truly strong solo episodes. But grouped together, their best trait is a lurking sense of anticipation; anticipation that feels a lot like dread.

Atlanta” began its exquisite first season with a slew of smart set-ups: Characters were introduced. Tone was established. Disaster struck. “Robbin’ Season” is following suit, although how it establishes when the new season takes place and what has happened in the time jump is perhaps less interesting than how it formally repurposes the pilot’s framing: The very first scene

What We Know about the “Roswell” Reboot So Far

What We Know about the “Roswell” Reboot So Far
Roswell was a sci-fi series that started up on The WB before finishing up on UPN. Like its name suggests, it was centered around aliens. However, what people who are unfamiliar with the series might have not suspected is that it was centered around aliens who also happened to be high school students. To be exact, Roswell was concerned to a great extent by the romantic entanglements of humans and human-looking aliens as well as the efforts of various groups interested in capturing the aliens, meaning that it was in a real sense, rather similar to the paranormal romances that

First Look: ‘Das Boot’ Series Setting Sail

First Look: ‘Das Boot’ Series Setting Sail
Das Boot” is about to set sail after principal photography wrapped on the $32.8 million TV epic. Filming in Malta brought a 105-day shoot to an end, and the German, French, and English-language series bows on paycaster Sky in late-2018. Bavaria Fiction, Sky Deutschland, and Sonar Entertainment produced the eight-parter. Pictured, left to right: August Wittgenstein, Rick Okon, Franz Dinda.

Das Boot” is set in the fall of 1942, months after Wolfgang Petersen’s 1981 movie ended. The tide is turning against the German war effort after the Allies solve the Enigma code and opposition to the Nazis intensifies. It tells dual stories: there is the journey of the U-boat, and the story of the Resistance movement in La Rochelle. The multilingual series was filmed in German, French and English.

Lizzie Caplan and Vicky Krieps (pictured, below) also star. The cast also includes Jonathan Zaccaϊ (“Robin Hood”), Leonard Scheicher (“Finsterworld”), Robert Stadlober (“Summer Storm”), Franz Dinda (“The Cloud”), and [link=nm

Two Buffoons Stumble into a Real Life Orc Fight Club

So two buffoons stumble into a real live orc fight club, no it’s not a joke it’s a real clip at least. But after that it kind of reminds of a few D&D sessions that my buddies and I used to have when we were good and drunk and had a head full of ideas to come up with. If you’ve ever played even a session of D&D you’d know it can get just this crazy and even more so. There are virtually no limits to what you can do inside the game and it would seem that’s translated over

Twitch Man Plays Super Mario World Theme With His Nose

Some people have claims to fame that are amazing, but Twitch Man seems to get by on his ability to play the Super Mario World theme through his nose. Just watching this made my nose buzz and my teeth kind of hurt to think if how much air must be passing through both at a fairly intense rate as he opens and closes that one nostril to modulate the sound. I’m not sure that I want to know just how much practice went into this or why he would do it, but to each their own I say. At least

Berlin: TV Series Gain More Traction as Festival Opens Doors to Small Screen Fare

Intense industry interest and growing demand for a major TV market early in the year could well lead to a much larger role for small-screen series at the Berlinale and European Film Market in the coming years. Berlin became one of the first A-list festivals to launch TV sections as part of the main festival and market in 2015. The festival’s Berlinale Series sidebar and the Drama Series Days event (Feb. 19-21), launched jointly by the European Film Market, the Berlinale Co-Production Market and the Berlinale Talents, have made Berlin an increasingly vital platform for international makers of high-end series. This year marks the first time that all market and festival series activities will take place at one location: the recently restored Zoo Palast, where they are overseen by program manager Solmaz Azizi. In addition to the Drama Series Days market screenings and conference program, the Berlinale Series will present its festival and red carpet public screenings

Not Your Grandfather’s – or Grandmother’s – ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’

Not Your Grandfather’s – or Grandmother’s – ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’
“Picnic at Hanging Rock,” the new TV adaption of the Australian cult classic, kicked off the Berlin Film Festival’s TV sidebar Monday, and while the show has been generating quite a bit of buzz, getting it made was initially tough because of the long shadow cast by Peter Weir’s critically acclaimed 1975 film adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s 1967 novel.

“No one wanted to do it,” said the new show’s director, Larysa Kondracki, discussing the series shortly after the first two episodes premiered at the Berlinale Series.

“You’d tell any crew member that you’re making ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock,’ and they’d ask, ‘Why?’ Because it’s a great book, it’s a great thing. ‘No, absolutely not, I’m not going to touch that.’

“But something about it lingered and when you read the first page [of the TV adaptation], you realize this isn’t the original film. This is something else.”

Legends of Tomorrow: Zari Stuck in Time Loop. Rip Finds Kid Flash.

It’s Groundhog Day on tonight’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow. Zari finds herself stuck in a time loop where the Waverider explodes every hour. Therefore, making her relive the same moments over and over again. Where’s Bill Murray when you need him? I like the overall premise of this episode. Zari often feels like she’s not an actual member of Team Legends and this time loop/Groundhog Day effect is the thing she needs to open her eyes to the truth. That and the shocking twist at the end of the hour almost made me fall out of my seat. It

Berlin: Australia’s Talent Mostly Here on the Small Screen

Berlin: Australia’s Talent Mostly Here on the Small Screen
Posh frocks, smoldering sexuality and a trail of plausible, but ultimately frustrating, clues made for a great mystery back in 1975, when “Picnic at Hanging Rock” first appeared on the big screen. The tale of schoolgirl disappearances, deception, and voyeurism remains a beacon of Australian cinema and launched the directing career of Peter Weir. But these days, with TV attracting top screenwriting and directing talent, those narrative qualities are being explored in greater depth on the small screen. And the intriguing mystery story now returns, remade as a TV mini-series piloted by FremantleMedia and picked up by Amazon for the U.S. and the BBC for the U.K. Pay-channel Foxtel regards the show as a subscriptions magnet and has it for Australia. These days too, film festivals give increasing space on the red carpet to TV shows. And the new “Picnic” series travels as the flagship of the Australian contingent at the Berlinale.

Video Of An Ultra High Speed Industrial Bacon Slicer is Oddly Satisfying

You might not think that something like an ultra high speed bacon slicer would be such a satisfying sound, but it is. Have you ever opened a pack of bacon and wondered just how it was packed and how those slices got be to so uniform? Not a single one is out of place and every one of them has the same thickness and cut. I won’t go into any depth on how the strips are processed but the circular blade that cuts them all, and does it in a very quick and efficient manner, is so good that the

The Sound of Violence: A Sound of Silence Batman Parody

The Sound of Violence has to be one of the corniest but best Batman parodies yet. You know when a superhero gets too big they’re going to attract attention from those that live to spoof people just for fun, and this is usually the kind of result you get. Batman is one of the easiest guys to spoof since he’s got such a strong following that most of the fans will actually get a kick out of something like this and praise it for at least some accuracy. For instance, there’s no telling what Batman’s going to be pulling out

Winter Olympics 2018: Who Took Home a Pairs' Ice Dancing Medal?
Twizzle me this: Is it hot in here, or is it just Olympic ice dancing’s free dance?

The Olympic pairs’ long-form competition took place Monday night at Gangeung Ice Arena in PyeongChang, following Sunday’s short program, a Latin-themed affair dominated by Canadian sex-on-blades partners Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. That evening ended with Virtue and Moir in first place, followed by France’s Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron in second and the United States of America’s Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue in third.

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Sally Potter

One of the most artistic entertainment professionals to come out of England is Charlotte Sally Potter. She is a screenwriter, a dancer, and a director. Among her most famous works are Orlando (based on a novel by Virginia Woolf), The Man Who Cried, The Tango Lesson, and Ginger & Rosa. In recent news, Sally Potter (as she prefers to be known) has released a film called The Party. This political movie was inspired by the 2015 British election – one that Potter noticed was comprised mostly of vote-grabbing spin in the headlines instead of any discussion of the actual issues.

‘The Bachelor’ Recap: Arie Luyendyk Jr. Meets the Families

‘The Bachelor’ Recap: Arie Luyendyk Jr. Meets the Families
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “The Bachelor” episode from Monday, Feb. 19.

And then there were four.

Week 8 on “The Bachelor” means time for the infamous hometown dates, with Tia, Kendall, Lauren B. and Becca each bringing Arie Luyendyk Jr. home to meet their families. With only two weeks to go until the final rose (and likely a proposal), the relationships are in crunch time.

First up was Kendall, the quirky taxidermist from Los Angeles.

“It’s been really difficult for me to find people who get me,” she announced as she brought the Bachelor into a warehouse full of dead animals.

“The taxidermy freaked me out a little bit, not my thing, but I love spending time with Kendall,” Luyendyk pronounced as he nervous-laughed his way through the date. Kendall even made him stuff dead rats and create a scene of the two taxidermy characters kissing in front of an Eiffel
