The first trailer for the upcoming second season of Hulu's Castle Rock was released today and it introduces a very familiar Stephen King character...

I don't have Hulu, so I haven't seen the first season (which I heard was good). But, this trailer is starting to sway me to subscribe.

Why must there be so many damn subscription services??!!

The new season of Castle Rock starts on October 23rd.

Superman too

 photo S_zpsnlmmives.png

Here is the first picture of Brandon Routh suited up again as one of many Supermen for the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover with Supergirl and other other CW super-shows...

We’ve known for a few months the (frankly, still wild to contemplate) news that Brandon Routh would be appearing in the CW’s upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths mega-crossover of the Arrowverse and beyond, not just as Legends of Tomorrow’s Atom, but also Superman. 

Well, a version of Superman amongst many, apparently—and not even the Superman Routh had previously played on the big screen either. Instead, Routh would be playing the older Superman of the iconic DC Comics Elseworlds miniseries Kingdom Come, by Mark Waid and Alex Ross.

The five-part Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover between The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Batwoman, and somehow basically every other old DC TV show you like begins on the CW this December.

These "events" are always fun to watch and there's even a possibility that Lynda Carter will be showing up to play a version of Wonder Woman.

I'm in!

The five-hour crossover’s first three episodes will air in December, with the final two installments arriving after the winter hiatus in Jan. 2020.

Here’s the full schedule below, with some of the shows airing on special nights:

  •  Supergirl: Sunday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. 
  •  Batwoman: Monday, Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. 
  •  The Flash: Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. 
  •  Arrow: Tuesday, Jan 14 at 8 p.m. 
  •  DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Tuesday, Jan 14. at 9 p.m.

Something more

It looks like we might be getting more Thirtysomething in the near future...

Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick’s beloved 1987 drama series thirtysomething is making a comeback. I have learned that the duo is pitching a new incarnation of the show, which is garnering interest from multiple networks, including ABC, which aired the original series.

Written by thirtysomething creators Herskovitz and Zwick and to be directed by Zwick, I hear the followup series revolves around the children of the characters in the original show, which are now 30-something themselves. I hear the intention is for original cast members to reprise their roles but no one is set yet and there have been no formal talks.

Thirtysomething was a seminal series that captured the angst of the baby boomer generation and its struggles with real-life issues such as career, relationships, marriage, having kids and parenting. It centered around Michael Steadman (Ken Olin), his stay-at-home wife Hope Murdoch (Mel Harris) and their baby Janie. Melanie Mayron, Timothy Busfield, Patricia Wettig, Peter Horton and Polly Draper also starred in the series, which won 13 Primetime Emmy Awards, out of 41 nominations, and two Golden Globe Awards over the course of its four-season run.

This was one of my favorite shows of the time and it's definitely something I would watch if we're lucky enough to get another season or two in the near future.

I saw the Downton Abbey movie tonight and really enjoyed it.

If you loved the series, you'll love the movie.

It's that simple.

The final trailer for the sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep, was released today...

This is looking pretty good, so far. I may have to go back and watch the original film again. It's been a while.

Between Two Ferns

 photo B_zpsfidxzopu.jpg

The first trailer for the upcoming Netflix film, Between Two Ferns, was released today...

The web series has always been funny, so let's hope that translates to a feature-length adventure. He's got a lot of celebrity friends, so I have a feeling it'll be worth watching.

We'll find out when it premieres on September 20th.
