Emmy nominations, Mr. Robot and Phil Collins, and Zoo just keeps on giving.

Thursday July 14th 2016
 

The Watercooler

The Emmy nominations came out this morning, and as usual, people have thoughts. Sure there were some notable snubs, and some surprisesand of course Downton Abbey and Modern Family got nominations over more deserving shows, but Mr. Robot and The Americans got nominations! That’s a good start.

The whole list is here , and if you want it broken down by network that list is here. (Congrats HBO!)

Beyonce, who is definitely going to end up with an EGOT at some point, got 4 nominations for Lemonade.
 



The Mr. Robot season two premiere was last night and if you need a recap, for some good ones click here and here.

Uproxx has some questions
and you might want an answer to the question of how the show got Barack Obama to say “Tyrell Wellick.”

Here’s the 10 key moments from the premiere, and an interview with Rami Malek.

The episode used a Phil Collins song, so expect to hear a lot of his music in bars and restaurants for the next couple of months. Still can it top MIami Vice’s iconic use of “In the Air Tonight?” 

 

The Business

ABC relaunched a free streaming site, and an app, so now you can watch as many episodes of My So-Called Life, Sports Night, or Dinosaurs as you want. (I do not recommend watching Dinosaurs.)

FOX officially ordered an X-Men pilot from writer (and Burn Notice creator) Matt Nix.

Chuck Lorre’s pot comedy Disjointed, which stars Kathy Bates, has been given a 20 episode order by Netflix.

Casting: Ian Gomez will play Kara’s new boss at her day job on Supergirl, and Floriana Lima has been case as detective Maggie Sawyer. Renee Elise Goldsberry, who Hamilton nerds know as the original Angelica Schuyler, joined the case of Netflix’s Altered CarbonBrian Austin Green abruptly quit Rosewood, and will be replaced by tabloid staple Eddie CiboriaSharon Lawrence will play Fiona’s new boss on Shameless.

Netflix has ordered a third season of Bloodline.


People Talking About TV

“The whole thing ended on a cliffhanger in which my beloved flamethrower-wielding French spy might have died in a cocktail dress while trying to liberate a sloth, and I wouldn’t have cared about that either if it didn’t directly tie-in to this GIF, which is the aforementioned great moment in television history. Ready? Here we go. That, to be clear, if you want context, and it is fine if you don’t, is Bob Benson from Mad Men slapping a four-star general in the face and shouting “Where’s the sloth?!” He slapped a four-star general and shouted “Where’s the sloth?!” It was in the script and everything!” FYI Zoo continues to be delightfully silly TV.

“Morse and Berend say they are filling a white space in online video between Vice and Buzzfeed. "One of those is very shouty. The other is cotton candy," Berend says. "We didn’t see anybody occupying that smart space in the middle that was fundamentally optimistic about the world, and it wasn’t just screaming that everything was bad."” Here’s an (old, like from last year) piece on CNN’s Great Big Story, which makes videos that I’ve been enjoying whenever they pop up on Hyper, which I also highly recommend. 

 

What To Watch

The big show for this weekend is Netflix’s Spielberg/Carpenter/King homage Stranger Things. As a kid who grew up in the 1980s, I watched the first trailer and I was so in. The A.V. Club called it “stylish, beguiling, and eminently bingeable, but it isn’t skeptic-proof,” and gave it a B+ Alan Sepinwall watched the whole thing, and says it thankfully “doesn't feel like a hollow nostalgia exercise.” Maureen Ryan at Variety compares it to Freaks and GeeksIGN says it’s an easy recommendation, and also points out that it’s not just Spielberg’s movies that get referenced. Here’s the trailer. Like I said, I am so in. You can watch the first 8 minutes right now.

Another show that I was sold on by the first couple seconds of the trailer is Danny McBride and Jody Hill’s Vice Principals which starts Sunday night on HBO. A principal, played by Bill Murray, is retiring, and the two vice principals, played by McBride and Justified’s co-MVP Walton Goggins, both want the job. The A.V. Club gave it an A-. Can’t wait.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Tim Goodman loved Sundance’s The A Word, a British drama about a family that gets a diagnosis of autism for their music obsessed son. It started last night. Great cast on this one. Here’s the much more upbeat that you'd expect by the premise trailer.

ESPN’s 30 for 30 has a new episode, Doc and Darryl, about the rise and fall of Darryl Strawberry and Dwight “Doc” Gooden. (Mets fan Jon Stewart makes an appearance.) The A.V.Club gave it a B+, and Rogert Ebert.com gave it three stars. It’s from the same group that made the excellent You Don’t Know Bo, about Bo Jackson, which you should also watch.

Uproxx has their picks for the 15 best stand-up specials that are currently available on Netflix.

IGN has their picks for the 25 best British sitcoms, which varies from AbFab to I’m Alan Partridge, and The Young Ones. I can’t do cringe comedy, so The Office wouldn’t be my #1, but #2 is Fawlty Towers, which I’ve practically memorized, so I approve of this list.

Are you watching Friends for the first time? Or for the 10th time? As someone who can’t stand the show, I am happy to point you to Decider’s list of 10 other classic sitcoms you could watch instead. Any list that recommends NewsRadio gets my vote.

 

Odds and Ends

Game of Thrones! HBO had Samuel L. Jackson narrate a featurette that recaps the whole series. It’s amazing! It’s also actually a really good recap. Maisie Williams, aka Arya Stark, has teal hair, and it’s really cute. I can’t sign off on those shorts though. I might have linked to this a while back, but if not, here’s a reminder that Arrested Development quotes and GoTs work very well together.

Buzzfeed has a poll for how you spell out the Law & Order sound, and so far “dun dun” is in the lead.

Bryan Cranston talked about his time on Seinfeld, and how Jerry Seinfeld can’t keep a straight face.

Seth Meyers and Late Night explained imaginary teen slang, including “reekachu.”

And in other Pokemon news, an on-air Florida weatherman had to deal with a Pokemon chasing co-worker walking through his shot.

I love that Kristen Wiig has a huge movie to promote, but that she’s still sticking with playing a character on her visits to The Tonight Show. This time she’s JoJo, the current Bachelorette.

TVLine’s list of 20 characters that deserve their own show is spot on. I would totally watch a show that follows Gayle from Bob’s Burgers, or Sheriff Mills from Supernatural.

Here’s the trailer for Command and Control, an episode of PBS’s American Experience about the time a dropped wrench almost nuked the state of Arkansas.

The Walking Dead made a featurette about the most recent season’s grossest walkers.

I have no need for Adventure Time LEGOs, but aw, so cute. I do agree though that leaving Lumpy Space Princess out is a huge oversight. LSP would not be pleased.

 

That’s a wrap for me for this week. Thanks for reading!
