Sense 8 Cancelled By Netflix

Netflix has announced that they are canceling their edgy sci-fi show Sense8 after two seasons. The show revolves around eight people from all over the world that have a connection that allows them to tap in to one another’s thought’s and skill’s; Because of this mental connection the group can share their life together which sounds interesting and, a little scary I must admit. The group doesn’t enjoy a relaxing time though as they are hunted by a mysterious organization. If you haven’t checked out the show and, have a Netflix account you can always check out the twenty-three episodes of the two seasons they have. (Video Courtesy Of Netflix)

Wayward Pines From FOX

The creepy and intense psychological thriller Wayward Pines by M Night Shyamalan which is based on the best selling novels by Blake Crouch, makes its return to the FOX network next Wednesday May 25th for its second season. The basic story is about a Secret Service agent on a mission to find two missing federal employees but of course the story expands from there. The show takes over the time period formally used by for the hit FOX show Empire for a ten episode arc. A lot of the cast from season one of the show make brief appearances in season two although no Matt Dillion and executive produce M Night Shyamalan doesn’t direct any episodes this season like he did last season which is a disappointment. The aforementioned changes as well as the fact that the show has a new show runner Mark Friedman are a lot of changes for a show that is only about to start its second season hopefully all these changes wont mess with the creepy charm the show had in its first season.

Westworld Teaser Released

The above teaser trailer is for the new HBO series coming next year based on the 1973 movie penned by Michael Crichton ‘Westworld’ which had Yul Brynner as the lead. In the original movie a character played by actor James Brolin and his friend visit an expensive futuristic theme park where they visit the old west and all the towns residents are robots. The robots go out of control and start attacking the guests with Yul Brynner as the robotic gunslinger who chases James Brolin. Michael Crichton must have something against theme parks as he also wrote Jurrasic Park but in this take the viewpoint is from the robot hosts of the park, can robots have feelings and emotions i guess we will have to wait and find out. The series looks slick like all HBO series but it will be interesting to see if we can get emotionally attached to the robot characters in this promising looking sci fi series coming to HBO next year.

UKTV: Eastenders Summer Trailer

The above video is a trailer for the long running BBC One soap opera Eastenders showing some of the upcoming drama for over the Summer. The show has been struggling over recent times with cast changes and slipping ratings which will hopefully improve. This trailer does showcase some of the upcoming drama but improving the ratings over the traditional slow period of Summer will be tough. The key to a soap opera is stability with the old favorites and then you add in newer interesting characters some may become old favorites but many will be around for a while and then leave once their story arc is over. The problem with Eastenders at the moment is with so many long running characters having left, their is less connection with the past and some longtime viewers may leave with them. I hope Eastenders picks up after the slower Summer months and, ratings improve for a show with such a long history it would be a shame to see it gone. [Video Courtesy Of The BBC]

David Letterman’s Final Goodbye

Last night a true television legend recorded his show for the last time as David Letterman said his final goodbyes on the Late Show on CBS. The reason why David was so good was his style from his self-deprecating humor to his laid back approach he never took himself too serious. There are too many funny moments over his long career on NBC and CBS to mention; But the most emotional had to be the first show back after the terror attacks of 9-11 and the emotion as well as anger he showed was how many of us were feeling at the time and, from a guy nearly always in control helped us get through it. David Letterman you will be missed and we wish you the best of luck in the future.  [Video Courtesy of David Letterman, Worldwide Pants and CBS]

Simpsons Renewed For Seasons 27 And 28

THE SIMPSONS: Rich benefactors fund a modernized Springfield elementary in the all-new ÒMathleteÕs FeatÓ season finale episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, May 17 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.  THE SIMPSONS ª and © 2015 TCFFC ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.


The news recently concerning The Simpsons on FOX has been about the longtime voice of twenty or so of the characters Harry Shearer leaving the show. The discussion in the press has been about replacing him or even in some places canceling the show as his voices are such huge of the show. Well fans of Homer, Bart and the rest of the family don’t need to worry as FOX have announced they are renewing the longest running scripted television show for seasons 27 and 28. The show which started as a series of crudely drawn animated skits in the Tracy Ullman Show has won 31 Emmy Awards, an Academy Award for a theatrical short as well as being the first animated show to win a Peabody Award among its many other awards during its groundbreaking run. It’s amazing that a show that has been on for so many years with reruns of old shows on constantly still is one of the highest rated shows on television a tribute to the shows voice actors, creators and writers with no end in sight for the perennial favorite. After the end of the 28th season the show will have produced an amazing 625 episodes  over its long run. I wouldn’t bet against the Simpsons being renewed once again and hitting the 30 year mark another huge milestone for a show that has broken so many records.

The Muppets To Return To TV

As a young kid in the 1970’s i remember fondly the original ‘Muppet Show’ which was a variety show with a different celebrity guest each week interacting with the muppets. Now after several movies over the years ABC has resurrected the muppets with a new show this fall simply called ‘the muppets.’ The new show other than having one of the best trailers for new fall shows also shows the muppets outside their variety show in their personal lives and interacting with humans which is a different twist on the original concept. I don’t know if this concept will work but the clips shown in the video above do look interesting and funny so if lt should be a show to check out when it premieres in the fall.

Full House Reboot Coming To Netflix

Its finally official the reboot of the corny class family show ‘Full House’ is coming to Netflix after several months of rumors. The shows reboot has been given the go ahead by the online service with thirteen new episodes of the former ABC comedy. In the above video of an appearance on the Jimmie Kimmel Live show, John Stamos  describes that first episode will be more of a reunion show and then later episodes showcasing three of the girls from the original show with their kids, so kind of Full House the next generation. The show should garner an audience from people that grew up with the show and now may have their own kids to show the new Full House too; But it should be interesting to see how a younger generation that hasn’t seen the original takes to the show which will ultimately have to stand as a new show if it wants to be renewed past the original thirteen episodes. {Video Courtesy Of Jimmie Kimmel LIve}
