    Previously on Game of Thrones...I discussed the common archetype of the hero and how George RR Martin uses our familiarity with this archetype as a form of misdirection.Part 2 looks at the archetype of the 'Lover' and the 'Innocent' and how Martin dangles hope for one character to tease the audience. The Lover is motivated by finding true love (see pretty much every Disney princess). They are also easily influenced by the approvals of others and fear being abandoned or alone.The Innocent is ignorant of the evil in the world. They always want to do the right thing and fear being punished…

    Fans of the comic series featuring John Constantine were optimistic when they got their first look at the new NBC show’s TV version of the character. Visually inspired by pop star Sting, the original Constantine was a Liverpool con man who used his devious mind as well as his magic to fight supernatural forces. While the 2005 movie strayed wildly with Keanu Reeves in the lead role, the actor’s larger-than-life image has cast a big shadow over the more faithful TV incarnation. The Towering Keanu One of the things that made Reeves so successful in film is his ability to fill the…

It’s about terrorists winning against the U.S. and effectively compromising the country’s freedom of speech. During his end-of-the-year press conference, Obama called Sony’s decision to pull the film a mistake and addressed what this forced censorship could mean for the future of storytelling through filmmaking, stating: Sony’s a corporation.

When you are constantly paying more attention to the technique instead of the narrative that is problematic. The picture is over two hours long and twenty minutes of it is either watching people

    It’s a rare man who gets to attend his own funeral. It’s an even luckier man who gets to cheat his own death, dust his prints off the murder weapon, read his own eulogy, and rise to live again in another form. That’s what Stephen Colbert did Thursday night with “Stephen Colbert,” in a show that sent his bloviating host character — one of the greatest sustained performances in pop culture, TV or otherwise — off into TV eternity. And his final Colbert Report was both a sweet ending and a perfect summation of the show’s spirit — smart and…

    17 Dec 2014 | 4:43 pm
    The hacking of Sony and the threats against theaters planning to screen The Interview is arguably America’s first literal culture war. And the battle just claimed a big casualty: Sony announced, after several distributors pulled out, that it was canceling the Dec. 25 release of the Seth Rogen comedy, which depicts the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Plain and simple, free speech lost a battle here. It may have been inevitable, after the massive cyberattack on Sony’s computer data was followed by violent threats against theaters. The fear of violence and legal…

If it’s hubris for me to declare that I have seen the best things that aired all year, it’s even more so to pretend I could isolate the worst, much less rank them. It’s physically possible, at least, for a critic to screen enough of the year’s good TV to identify the best of the best. But millions of hours of TV is piped over cable a year. There must be awful, awful things that I have not…

    The Newsroom is over, but Aaron Sorkin’s critique of the media is not. Writing in the New York Times, the screenwriter says that any reporter who is reprinting information released in a massive hack of Sony computers–seemingly as retaliation for The Interview, a Seth Rogen comedy about an assassination plot against the leader of North Korea–is “morally treasonous and spectacularly dishonorable.” Sorkin, as he admits, is an interested party: he’s writing a movie about Steve Jobs that’s the subject of some of the e-mails.

Not only has the streaming service’s recommendation engine threatened long-standing TV empires and conquered our video habits by sending us from binge-watch to binge-watch–“If you like this, you might like this”–but also, so the company says, it has allowed Netflix to use its copious data to precision-target an audience for its original shows.

    A live broadcast by Australia’s Seven Network–which produces national morning shows “Sunrise” and “The Morning Show” from its studios at Martin Place–may have been the original target in the fatal Sydney siege at the Lindt cafe. The Daily Telegraph reports (Sydney siege gunman) “Man Haron Monis arrived at Martin Place early on Monday morning with the possible intention of taking hostages within the TV network’s studio during the live morning ‘Sunrise’ broadcast:” But it appears that, due to increased security at the studio…

  • Beamly Wants To ‘Super-Charge’ Ads After Pivot ‘Step Change’

    Robert Andrews
    19 Dec 2014 | 2:57 am
    The social TV app formerly known as “Zeebox” has ambitions to offer advertisers new experiences, after rebranding to “Beamly” earlier this year. First launched in 2011, Zeebox helped viewers learn and talk about shows during live broadcast. But it expanded to VOD and a greater female focus this year in its pivot. “When a drama is on, most people want to focus on the TV show – trying to force the second-screen experience on certain TV shows didn’t fit well,” new CEO Jason Forbes tells Beet.TV in this video interview. ”Feedback from both our…
  • Second Screens Yield Vital Data for TV Networks

    Daisy Whitney
    18 Dec 2014 | 4:45 pm
    The next hurdle for second screen marketing lies in measuring consumer sentiment towards a TV show, says Alan Wolk, Chairman of Second Screen Society, in an interview with Beet.TV. That can be done by tapping into the treasure trove of data available via mobile phones that consumers use to interact with a show. “How do you measure these audiences? How do you measure the sentiment on social? Data and second screens let you engage with viewers. Who are these people? What do they like? What do they want?” he asks. By mining that information networks can then use it to inform…
  • Addressable Tools Will Drive Programmatic TV, Videology’s Scott Ferber

    Daisy Whitney
    17 Dec 2014 | 7:08 pm
    Programmatic TV will be driven first by addressable tools, says Scott Ferber, Chairman and CEO of video advertising technology platform Videology, in an interview with Beet.TV. “The first step where programmatic and addressable will converge in the TV space is on the data side…understanding who is on the other end of the set-top box,” he says, adding that a smooth delivery process and better measurement will also help usher addressable TV into the programmatic arena. Already, programmatic buying has taken hold of digital advertising, and moving into TV is a natural next…

    Robert Andrews
    17 Dec 2014 | 4:12 am
    CHICAGO — Webzine Slate may be producing some video of its own nowadays but, as a text specialist, the outlet may never make enough to satisfy booming advertiser demand for video ad inventory. That’s why the publisher is using InRead, an ad format from vendor Teads which allows sites to inject video ads between text paragraphs, even if pages don’t have video content on them. “We deliver about two million pre-rolls streams a month - by using Teads, we can increase our inventory closer to 15-to-20million impressions per month,” Slate publisher Anthony DeMaio…

  • The Maze Runner Digital HD Release Review

    Marc Eastman
    19 Dec 2014 | 10:50 am
    The Maze Runner Digital HD Release Review The Maze Runner hit theaters as a bit of a curiosity. Unlike most YA novels that get adapted into films, The Maze Runner didn’t have the same kind of mainstream traction that most do, though lesser-known titles are not unheard of, and it didn’t aim to attract a star with pull beyond the target demographic. While Dylan O’Brien has some small amount of variety to his credits, he’s really just the guy from Teen Wolf, which means you have to already be extremely likely to be familiar with The Maze Runner to know who he is.

I imagine Hulu knows what they’re doing, but I have to imagine this is a “watch again” hope they’re working with, because surely everyone who has any hope of wanting to see this one has already seen it. No one missed this, right? If you did, and I have no idea who I’m talking to now, do not miss your chance to watch it now.

Adapted from the hit musical, the film stars Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, and for the uninitiated, it details their relationship as she sings songs from the end of their relationship backwards, and he gives you songs from the start forward. The trailer gives one the impression that this is a fairly niche endeavor, but oh if you’re in that niche, I suspect you’re in for a treat. How’s this one look to you? In this adaptation of the hit…

    By Jared Jones By virtue of being on the Internet, you’re already well-aware that Stephen Colbert‘s nine-year run on The Colbert Report came to a triumphant end last night, with the soon-to-be Late Night host bidding farewell in the only fashion he knew how: a soaring musical number featuring everyone from Willie Nelson to to Bryan Cranston to Big Bird. It was an over-the-top, ridiculous, and heartfelt goodbye from one-half of the duo that 90% of people under the age of 30 get their news from, and one that you couldn’t help but tearing up while watching.

    Well, it looks like the terrorists won. Depending on your perspective. Bowing to pressure from anonymous cock-knockers (just revealed to be connected to the North Korean government) that threatened violent action toward theaters showing the new Seth Rogen/James Franco vehicle The Interview, major movie chains refused to screen it on its scheduled Christmas Day launch, subsequently motivating Sony Pictures decided to scrap the film altogether. All signs pointed to The Interview being a stinker anyway, so it’s amazing to think that the movie was the single driving force behind the…

This one is called Get Hard, and Ferrell co-stars with diminutive comedian Kevin Hart.

There would be no reason Wahlberg wouldn’t be playing the same character, but that was just my clumsy attempt to let the readers know that his character’s name is Cade Yeager.

    On the latest episode of “Elementary,” we got a first-hand look at what it’s like to be seriously busted, in “End of Watch.” I mean, the last time I saw so many cops so determined to arrest someone was in that old movie “The Blues Brothers,” although these particular cops were decidedly better behaved. I […]

    Labeling it an ‘overwhelming experience’, Benedict Cumberbatch, star of The Imitation Game, talked recently about his filming the story of wartime code-breaker Alan Turing in the place where he actually lived and worked, Bletchley Park. It was Turing, the troubled genius mathematician, who spent the Second World War building an early computer that could crack encoded Nazi messages. Because of his work, he and his fellow codebreakers are credited with ending the war some two years earlier than expected. Set for a Christmas Day premiere in America, The Imitation Game has already…

    For the past two nights, Carnegie Hall was the place to be if you happen to find yourself as part of the growing number of individuals who are pretty much done with Christmas music at this point in the holiday season mainly because they have been playing it in stores since before Halloween. The perfect antidote was provided by none other than an original member of Monty Python, Eric Idle, who is also known for Spamalot, the brilliant stage musical version of the all-time classic Python film, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”.

South Park is poking fun at Peter Pan Live!'s “#SaveTinkerbell” hashtag that asked viewers to post selfies and clap at home in order to “save” Tinkerbell during the live Peter Pan broadcast. Also, some people think PewDiePie showed up instead of Mr. Hankey because PDP based his ‘peewwwdiepiiieee’ high pitched voice off of Mr. Hankey’s “Howdy Ho!”.

To me, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. […]

    You can have “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,” “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” but that’s not what I’m waiting for. Each year, I anticipate the Christmas episode of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” with as much longing as a little kid who is awaiting the arrival of Kris Kringle on Christmas Eve. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of “SNL” this year, NBC is airing vintage episodes in addition to new shows. Earlier this month, we were treated to the “SNL Christmas Special” which highlighted about 25 of the most loved holiday…

    All good things must come to an end – and so it is for my beloved “Cougar Town.” Jules and the rest of the gang will be raising their glasses for their final toast as the series winds to a close this spring. It seems like just yesterday we were following a cross-country bus tour to celebrate and save this wacky show and its kooky cast of characters. Now, on January 6, the show that TBS swooped in and saved will kick off its final season of 13 episodes. For me, “Cougar Town” was love at first sight. In honor of the show’s final bow, let’s take a look at the top five things…
  • NBC’s “Constantine”: Matt Ryan Is No Keanu Reeves

    Valerie David
    16 Dec 2014 | 1:44 pm
    Fans of the comic series featuring John Constantine were optimistic when they got their first look at the new NBC show’s TV version of the character. Visually inspired by pop star Sting, the original Constantine was a Liverpool con man who used his devious mind as well as his magic to fight supernatural forces. While the 2005 movie strayed wildly with Keanu Reeves in the lead role, the actor’s larger-than-life image has cast a big shadow over the more faithful TV incarnation. The Towering Keanu One of the things that made Reeves so successful in film is his ability to fill the…

    12 Dec 2014 | 12:00 pm
    FOX’s “Sleepy Hollow” writers have never been sure exactly what to do with Ichabod’s (Tom Mison) wife Katrina (Katia Winter). Her backstory paints her simultaneously as a peace-loving Quaker, a devious witch, and a society woman betrothed to Ichabod’s best friend. She scorned one Horseman and gave birth to another, and she recently carried baby demon Moloch to term. The more convoluted her character gets, the more I wish she had stayed in Purgatory. Ichabod’s Beloved In season one of “Sleepy Hollow,” we learned Katrina saved Ichabod after his…

We already know from artist Noel Cruz’s $2,500 Katniss doll that matching Jennifer Lawrence’s likeness is no easy task. But Madam Tussaud’s team proved up to the challenge when they debuted a Hunger Games-inspired model of Katniss Everdeen in New York. Propped up in a lush forest setting, (a pre-decimation District 13 perhaps?) and rocking a signature Katniss-braid, the young heroine holds a bow in her hand, wears the Mockingjay pin and…

    I spent six hours staring into space while laying on my couch yesterday. No, I wasn’t depressed or in a food coma or blanked out after a marathon video gaming session. Rather, I was listening to Serial, the just-concluded podcast from This American Life’s Sarah Koenig. I’m really not a podcast kind of person generally, as if I’m listening to audio, it’s usually music. I don’t really even do audiobooks.

As first reported by Variety, Ana Gasteyer and Anthony Edwards will play the parents of Zosia Mamet’s Girls character in Season 4, and from the article’s description of Shoshanna’s parents’ appearance, it doesn’t sound like things…

    Fans of Starz’s Outlander still have to wait more than three whole months for new episodes of the time-traveling, Scotland-set romance series. However, the show’s stars and Outlander executive producer Ronald D. Moore are giving everyone a little bit of an early Christmas present with this brand new teaser, which features footage from upcoming episodes of the series (eight episodes still remain in the show’s first season) and brief interviews with the actors who portray Claire, Jamie, and Dougal about what can be expected for their characters when the series returns in…

  • The Fall series 2 – finale falls flat

    19 Dec 2014 | 12:59 am
    I WAS swept along by the latest series of The Fall. The acting has been spot on, the multi-layered storylines have been intriguing, the setting and mood was compelling.But the end was a crashing disappointment. The big twist that Stella had developed a weird thing for the serial killer Spector was not so much a revelation as a breathtaking letdown.Gillian Anderson as DSI Stella Gibson and Jamie Dornan as Paul Spector had deservedly won plaudits and huge attention for their performances in the lead roles, but as the series concluded last night it felt as though The Fall had failed to…

  • 5 of the Best “Saturday Night Live” Skits that Are Burned in Our Brains

    You can have “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,” “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” but that’s not what I’m waiting for. Each year, I anticipate the Christmas episode of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” with as much longing as a little kid who is awaiting the arrival of Kris Kringle on Christmas Eve. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of “SNL” this year, NBC is airing vintage episodes in addition to new shows. Earlier this month, we were treated to the “SNL Christmas Special” which highlighted about 25 of the most loved holiday…

    All good things must come to an end – and so it is for my beloved “Cougar Town.” Jules and the rest of the gang will be raising their glasses for their final toast as the series winds to a close this spring. It seems like just yesterday we were following a cross-country bus tour to celebrate and save this wacky show and its kooky cast of characters. Now, on January 6, the show that TBS swooped in and saved will kick off its final season of 13 episodes. For me, “Cougar Town” was love at first sight. In honor of the show’s final bow, let’s take a look at the top five things…
  • NBC’s “Constantine”: Matt Ryan Is No Keanu Reeves

    Valerie David
    16 Dec 2014 | 1:44 pm
    Fans of the comic series featuring John Constantine were optimistic when they got their first look at the new NBC show’s TV version of the character. Visually inspired by pop star Sting, the original Constantine was a Liverpool con man who used his devious mind as well as his magic to fight supernatural forces. While the 2005 movie strayed wildly with Keanu Reeves in the lead role, the actor’s larger-than-life image has cast a big shadow over the more faithful TV incarnation. The Towering Keanu One of the things that made Reeves so successful in film is his ability to fill the…
  • What Is Up with Katrina Crane?

    Valerie David
    12 Dec 2014 | 12:00 pm
    FOX’s “Sleepy Hollow” writers have never been sure exactly what to do with Ichabod’s (Tom Mison) wife Katrina (Katia Winter). Her backstory paints her simultaneously as a peace-loving Quaker, a devious witch, and a society woman betrothed to Ichabod’s best friend. She scorned one Horseman and gave birth to another, and she recently carried baby demon Moloch to term. The more convoluted her character gets, the more I wish she had stayed in Purgatory. Ichabod’s Beloved In season one of “Sleepy Hollow,” we learned Katrina saved Ichabod after his…

    Originally scheduled for September 26th, Netflix has removed all Discovery content from their streaming queue today, October 5th. This includes many shows that we've repeatedly posted about being badly out of order like Mythbusters, Whale Wars, and Dirty Jobs. They're losing TLC’s "Say Yes to the Dress" today as well.While it is part of a business deal with  Discovery moving over to Amazon, we wonder if Netflix' consistently bad uploads of Discovery's shows had anything to do with their decision.

    Western society’s emphasis on the individual has created an understanding of identity that does not acknowledge the importance of relationships or societal context in shaping who we are. “Be who you are despite what others think/say/do.” “Find the real you!” “Get in touch with your inner self” are messages that bombard us on social media and which form the foundation of the self-help industry. While of course it is vital that we do not become overly dependent on others to define our self-worth the reality is that our identity is formed, at least in part, by those around us. We…

    20 Dec 2014 | 2:45 am
    In surprise news, actor Michael Pitt (Funny Games, Boardwalk Empire) had decided not to return as serial killer Mason Verger for the third season of NBC's HANNIBAL. One presumes the actor didn't find spending hours in the makeup trailer very appealing, but it makes you wonder what he thought the longterm future of playing this character would be. Didn't he read the book or see the movie? Or maybe he just wasn't as interested in how the character was being written? Or what the future storyline was for Verger?Whatever the reason for Pitt's departure, the role has been recast. Joe Anderson (The…

    It's hard to say which was the most exciting thing about this feature-length edition of Charlie Brooker's BLACK MIRROR; the fact the show's been given a Christmas special, or that its growing acclaim overseas resulted in Mad Men's Jon Hamm having an extensive role. Both were equally stimulating before a single frame of the show had been seen, but I'm pleased "White Christmas" managed the difficult trick of making an extended episode with an intertwined narrative work. It's just a shame that, if I'm completely honest, only a few elements of this special achieved the highs I expect from the…
  • Why is there a WALKING DEAD spin-off?

    Dan
    17 Dec 2014 | 3:00 am
    Answer: . AMC have a phenomenon on their schedule, but the cash cow only produces 16 episodes a year, which they split into two batches to try and make it feel more substantial. A spin-off (sorry, "companion" series) will help keep THE WALKING DEAD universe on-air for twice as long, while benefiting from fresh characters and a different location. It also helps that this new series (codenamed COBALT) won't be following an established comic-book's lead, which will mean no spoilers and a less predictable direction. Here's what we know:The Walking Dead's creator, Robert Kirkman, is very involved.

    16 Dec 2014 | 6:00 am
    As 2015 quickly approaches, so do a few new TV series. Mid season shows generally serve the purpose of filling out a Network’s schedule after other shows are either cancelled, put on hiatus or end their ordered run. Quite often they turn out to be hits and return for full runs the following season. Here are the new series that I think will catch on and stick around.

This year it seems that the Networks have been restrained on dropping the axe on low-performing series as there has been relatively few cancellations so far. As more and more people are choosing to watch shows on their own schedule, those concerned with ratings are looking at the long game as opposed to how many view the first broadcast of an episode. Having said all that, here is what caught my eye this Fall. As you may be tired of reading, I had developed a love/hate viewership with…

    If you’ve been reading this column for any length of time you will most assuredly know that character is of paramount importance to me when it comes to visual storytelling. Coupled with that is the acting ability of the professionals inhabiting those fictional people. The best story in the world completely falls apart if the characters and the actors portraying them aren’t convincing enough. However, terrifically acted, layered characters can raise up even the most mundane story and make it something special. CBS’ veteran cop drama “Blue Bloods” is almost an embarrassment of riches…

  • Do masks make villains scarier?

    19 Dec 2014 | 6:10 pm
    If you want a villain with impact, try concealing their face. The face is the most personal thing about us. It portrays who we are, reveals our emotions, and helps others anticipate our behaviour. Filmmakers often use masks to conceal the faces of villains. Perhaps this unsettles us because we struggle to connect with them and find it difficult to identify signs of empathy or humanity. Often the mask is a subtle depiction of a human skull. Such imagery associated with death and has been shown to unsettle us at an unconscious level.Do masks make villains…
  • New Bond film hooks us in with nostalgia

    7 Dec 2014 | 2:01 am
    The new James Bond film looks like it might be jumping back in time. It's called, Spectre, which was the criminal organisation from the early Connery films (remember the dude with the white cat?). So, why do new films end up going back in time to revisit old ideas?  Batman Begins took us back to Batman's origins. Star Trek (2009) introduced us to the early days of Captain Kirk. Superman recently returned to Krypton in the Man of Steel  and James Bond has saved the day in 24 films. If you prefer your Bond stirred not shaken, you might like to see…

    Although it be a bit premature, it's often easy to work out the character archetypes from a trailer.

What universal characters can we expect from the new Star Wars based on the trailer that was launched on Friday? Here are some predictions. The Regular Guy: Guy in stormtrooper armour The Stormtroopers are the working class or 'regular guys' of the Star Wars universe so it wouldn't be surprising to see one thrown into a more complicated world like with…
  • The top neurotic moments of George Costanza

    26 Nov 2014 | 2:56 am
    "They're men with jobs, Jerry!" George Costanza is one of the most memorable TV characters. We laugh at his expense but, perhaps, we are laughing at something we see in ourselves.This 'something' is what psychologists like to call 'neuroticism'. But what is this exactly? Let's explore some neurotic characteristics with George Costanza. Emotional Stability Neurotic people tend to be up and down. They can be easily frustrated, annoyed, and quick to panic. Neurotic people can also be prone to feeling deflated and depressed in the face of obstacles. They may also be prone to losing their…
  • Why Game of Thrones surprises us - Part 2

    20 Nov 2014 | 1:04 am
    Previously on Game of Thrones...I discussed the common archetype of the hero and how George RR Martin uses our familiarity with this archetype as a form of misdirection.Part 2 looks at the archetype of the 'Lover' and the 'Innocent' and how Martin dangles hope for one character to tease the audience. The Lover is motivated by finding true love (see pretty much every Disney princess). They are also easily influenced by the approvals of others and fear being abandoned or alone.The Innocent is ignorant of the evil in the world. They always want to do the right thing and fear being punished…
