TV comedy of both the intentional and unintentional varieties is available for sale today. We recommend the intentional kind.
Horror and fantasy author Stephen King has seen many of his books turned into movies and mini-series over the years, but only one regular TV series (The Dead Zone). John Smith is alone no longer -- Syfy has ordered 13 episodes of Haven, a series based on King's The Colorado Kid, about newspaper reporters discussing an unsolved mystery in Maine. We'd be excited, except... The Colorado Kid? Not only is it a minor work with no real plot to speak of, it also seems to have little in common with Haven, which involves an FBI agent assigned to a town populated by people who are cursed. Basically, it's been turned into an average Syfy series -- call it Eureka Sanctuary Warehouse Town. While we'll still watch it, we couldn't help but think of more prominent King works (as well as a few more hook-y short stories) that might make for more interesting TV. Here are ten we'd love to see.
Nothing huge getting announced the day before Thanksgiving, but we've got some info you might find valuable, depending on how much you miss The Simple Life.
The world is still reeling from the news that that the queen of daytime television will be abandoning her current talk show at the end of next season. Well, maybe it's just the world of stay-at-home moms and the unemployed that's reeling, but regardless, the question on everyone's minds is: what will Ms. Winfrey do next? While many consider it a given that she'll simply star on a new series on OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network, natch), we think that she should set her sights a little higher. Primetime high. Here's our unsolicited job advice for her:
With nearly all of the latest TV seasons finally released, DVD companies are free to focus on the series of years past. Way past. Like, ancient. Chase those dollars while you can, boys, because America is about to descend into anarchy.
In the spirit of the season, TWoP is pleased to offer its readers not one, not two, but three free screensavers to download, all featuring our devilish little mascot himself.
One screensaver covers your monitor in an infinite number of little black, white and yellow Tubeys. Think of it as our version of The Matrix, or of the snow that used to appear on dead TV channels.
