Almost all TV remakes and revivals are disappointing. Creating a successful TV show is a miracle that relies on getting the right group of actors, creators, and production staff together at the right time with a show that speaks to

Young Sheldon to meet Old Sheldon? Plus Silicon Valley delays.

Fans of Barry should feel guilty that the show is responsible for me not getting to see Silicon Valley season 6. Production won’t start until mid-2019, which may keep the show off the air until 2020. Executive Producer Alex Berg

Netflix’s Dogs, Game of Thrones date, & a bit more on Stan Lee

This weekend Netflix will release a 6-part documentary series about dogs. I’ve already cancelled all of my plans. Jen Chaney at Vulture has given the series a very positive wrap. She acknowledges the obvious cute factor: If the series’ sole

There’s a Breaking Bad movie coming soon. It’s true. Stop rubbing your eyes in disbelief. Series creator Vince Gilligan is working on it, but few details are known just yet. It’s interesting that this is coming out at the same

Always Be Watching – 07 November 2018

There are a whole bunch of TV revivals/reboots currently on the air. Joe Adalian at Vulture has taken a look to see which of them are/aren’t working. What surprises me in thinking about these is that CBS, a network who

Back in the good old days (1998), when a TV series made an announcement that it was set to do a big budget movie, that meant the film was going to get a release to cinemas. And sure, the only
