Have no fear, the Comic Book Men are here! Kevin Smith and the merry band of geeks that staff his Jersey-located comic book shop, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash make the leap to reality TV with the premiere of this new AMC series, which plays like a cross between Pawn Stars, Antiques Roadshow, American Chopper and, of course, Clerks.
Somebody in Hollywood has been eating brains. That was our first thought when we heard that Robert Kirkman's epic "surviving a zombie apocalypse" comic book series The Walking Dead was close to being developed as a television series by AMC. Add that to the fact that the Vertigo title Fables, about storybook characters living in New York, is in development at ABC, and it almost kinda looks like a trend. We started thinking about other comic book series that we'd like to see on the small screen, and were able to come up with ten off the top of our heads that barely even touch on the tights-and-capes crowd.
Still reeling from the mind-blowing Torchwood finale? Can't wait for new episodes? Yeah, me either. I tried to console myself with Torchwood: The Official Magazine Yearbook, but it was like sticking a band-aid on a gaping wound. Don't get me wrong, it was very well thought-out and well put-together and filled with gorgeous pictures of the dreamy Capt. Jack, but it's not quite as good as an episode.
Hey hey hey! It's Faaaaat Albert!
Always short a recommendation or two (or ten) whenever someone asks you for the right book/movie/TV show to fit a specific situation? Sounds like you might benefit from some Super Pop!, a new collection of Top Ten lists from Zest Books geared towards covering just about every scenario where someone would be seeking your pop culture advice.
Jennifer Lawrence -- newly minted A-list star of The Hunger Games and current Oscar nominee for Silver Linings Playbook -- made her first appearance in the battle arena known as Saturday Night Live over the weekend. And just like her alter ego, Katniss Everdeen, she didn't get off to the smoothest start, botching her opening monologue (the Best Actress smackdown was a decent idea, but Lawrence seemed too nervous to really execute it) and struggling through the first few (admittedly terribly written) sketches. But around the halfway mark, she found her groove and finished strong with some pretty funny material. Here's a rundown on Lawrence's losers and winners:
The upfronts are over. Time to start speculating about Glee's future again!
It's the most wonderful time of the year for SOAPnet fans.
If you tuned into Game of Thrones last night, you're either a really great judge of good TV, or you're obsessed with True Blood.
Pauly D's underwhelming new show started last night, but we want more from Jersey Shore than just Entourage ripoffs. Though honestly, given how little of interest he ever did on JS, we're not surprised. Perhaps the powers that be could see fit to give reality shows to people who might actually be entertaining to watch, and not just self-inflated hype machines.
