A new Foxy Brown, Golden Globe and SAG nominations, plus fascism and The Walking Dead.

Wednesday, December 14th 2016
 

People Talking About TV

“Other shows out there are hitting similar themes, and that shouldn’t surprise us given the anxieties of our times. But so many of those other shows demonstrate the consequences for violence or debate the ethical complexities of living with others who are different, or show the moral turmoil of people who enact or suffer violence. The Walking Dead is the only show that actively courts, rather than critiques, fascist ethics, and suggest that it’s the only viable solution to perceived threat.”” Vulture talks about the fascism of The Walking Dead, a subject that Slate also had a piece on this week. The ratings for this season have dropped quite a bit, so it gives me hope that maybe other people have finally figured out that this show is terrible, (Ugh, the writing! The episode length! Fu@%ing Rick!) and that the show’s message is even more terrible. I decided to stop covering it this season, mostly because I just hated reading the recaps every Monday. Just reading about the show was frustrating. I don't need that. There are other places to find excellent writing about it.

“Cornelius is what we would now call a bear, an older, hirsute gay man who embraces an over-the-top masculinity, despite being gay. Cornelius is the original “lumbersexual,” so much so that it’s shocking he’s not wearing a buffalo plaid flannel shirt and a pair of excessively wide braces along with his traditionally macho workman’s wear.” Love this. The gay subtext of Holiday favorite Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

The Golden Globes were announced on Monday, and if you want to start prepping your ballot, here’s the full list of nominations. I guess NBC needs to keep employing Milo Ventimiglia, because the last time the network got a Golden Globe nod for a drama it was for Heroes. If you want a breakdown of networks, HBO got the most nominations, followed by FX. TVLIne has their 20 picks for this year’s crop of snubs. Honestly most of these are peak TV problems. There’s just too many people doing excellent work. The nominations are so rarely described as being “delightful.”

Also announced this week are the SAG awards, which went cuckoo for Stranger Things.

 

The Business

Following the tradition of their previous show, The Grand Tour is a very popular illegal download. Honestly, I have Amazon Prime, and very fast internet, and the sound and picture are still out of sync.

Adventure Time is doing a four night special in January that finally answers the question of what happened to all the humans that aren’t Finn.

Syfy gave a straight to series order for Superstition, about a New Orleans area funeral home, and the unusual phenomena in the area. Would probably watch.

HBO ordered a multi part documentary about Muhammad Ali from Antoine Fuqua and LeBron James. Would watch.

Rashida Joneses’ nail salon dramedy Claws has been given a 10 episode order at TNT.

Casting: Archie's mom on The CW's Riverdale will be played by Molly RingwaldMeagan Good has been cast as the lead in Hulu’s re-imagining of Foxy Brown. Would watch. Reba McEntire will play the lead in a “southern gothic soap opera” from Marc Cherry. Kelly Lynch will play the lead’s mother on AT&T’s Mr. MercedesStar Trek: Discovery has cast three Klingons, Chris Obi, Shazad Latif, and Mary Chieffo, who all have faces you would probably recognize, but not with prosthetics on.

Renewed: IFC renewed Stan Against Evil for a second season. TBS ordered second seasons for both Search Party and People of Earth.

CancelledNetflix has cancelled Marco Polo after two seasons. Reign, a show that has the most inaccurate costumes on TV, will end after the upcoming fourth season. TVLand has cancelled Impastor after the second season. Salem will not be getting a fourth season from WGN.

 

What To Watch

I am feeling a bit better, but now my husband has a bad cold, so he’s stuck watching TV on the couch. Besides re-watching Key & Peele, we sampled People of Earth (good), Search Party (annoying millennials!), and Stan Against Evil (just watch Ash vs. Evil Dead), and we took time out to watch Brewster’s Millions, (an actual movie!) which is always great.

Streaming: Colony, an alien invasion show I keep meaning to catch up on, is now available on Netflix. Versailles, a show that to quote Decider caused a “ruckus” when it aired in Britain in the spring, is now also available on Netflix. The British ruckus was caused by all the sex and nudity, and the French ruckus was because it was filmed in English and not French.

The Rectify series finale is on tonight, and IndieWire has the seven reasons why you need to finally start watching. The main one though is that it’s been on a hell of a lot of top 10 lists throughout its run.

Star arrives on FOX tonight, and from this description, it sounds like it’s no Empire. (These reviews keep making me think of Showgirls. Not a good sign?) Still, if you want a mediocre show about an ambitious girl group with a great supporting cast, where dance numbers are frequent, this might be the show for you. Or maybe not, this review thinks it exists just to make every other show on TV look great in comparison.

Thanks to this epic cold, I can co-sign TVLine’s five reasons to make The Crown your next holiday binge watch. Crowns and Corgis.

The A.V. Club pointed me in the direction of this YouTube playlist of Late Night with Conan O’Brien episodes from the ‘90s, the era of socially unacceptable bears and “if they mated” segments.

 

Odds and Ends

SNL brought in Bryan Cranston, and Walter White, to make fun of Trump picking the most damaging people to lead government agencies.

If you’ve caught up with Westworld, and you can’t wait for season two, at least you can listen to the full soundtrack.

The BBC asked a bunch of people to list their favorite scenes from Planet Earth, which amazingly was 10 years ago, and this is what they came up with.

Trailers: Netflix released a surprise trailer for OA, which starts this week, and I have no idea what is happening in this series starring Brit Marling, but I AM IN. Things certainly look dark on the upcoming season of Sherlock. The trailer for The Mick looks like a movie where Amy Poehler would show up as an even bigger hot mess ⅔ of the way through. NBC’s version of Taken I guess did the smart thing and killed off the lead’s daughter, presumably so she isn’t constantly getting kidnapped and derailing the main plot of each episode.

 

Sorry this is so late, but MailChimp was acting up earlier.

That’s it for me for today, but I will be back on tomorrow, or possibly on Friday (still sick, don’t judge me) with more shows for you to watch, and a whole lot of critics picks for the best TV of 2016. Thanks for reading!
