‘HarmonQuest’ Season 2 Finale Reveals the Fate of Fondue, Dan Harmon’s Cowardly Half-Orc

  • Collider.com
One of the more brilliant ideas to bear the name of Dan Harmon isn’t an animated comedy series like the fan-favorite Rick and Morty or a live-action cult classic like Community, but a blend of both approaches with a dash of D&D-esque flavoring thrown in. This is HarmonQuest. As Harmon himself self-deprecatingly admits at the beginning of every episode, he’s not the star of the show; that honor falls to dungeon master and co-creator Spencer Crittenden, who literally holds the fate of the role-playing game’s characters in his dice-…

Justice League Review

Justice League is a “step in the right direction” in that instead of tumbling down an upwards-climbing escalator on an endless loop, DC has now managed to brace itself on a bottom step, clutching the handrail in a dizzied, confused daze. Patty Jenkins blazed a trail for franchise improvement with Wonder Woman, but this Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon double-team steps right back into the Dceu’s own mismanaged stink.

Forced “humor” clashes with Snyder’s brand of glib intensity, action sequences rage with no captivation, backstory establishment gets tossed aside – but yes, it’s far more “fun” than Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. For whatever that’s worth? Marvel cultivated their rivaling luminescent, “bright side” universe through patience and genuine charisma – DC just wants to bottle the same magic, hellbent on replicating an existing formula without understanding.

The Justice League’s first venture is to prevent Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), a cosmic warlord,

Elongated Man Plays Superhero In The Flash Season 4, Episode 6 Promo Images

A new batch of promo images for next week’s episode of The Flash have arrived online today, courtesy of The CW. According to the photos, season 4, episode 6, titled “When Harry Met Harry,” will see Hartley Sawyer’s Ralph Dibny suit up for the first time and join Barry Allen in some crime-fighting action.

Yep, sorry DC comics fans, Ralph isn’t exactly Elongated Man just yet as he’s not quite ready to graduate to a proper superhero suit. Instead, he’s wearing a pretty naff-looking blue unitard with an Iron Fist-type face mask. Still, if Ralph has already got some kind of costume it’s likely that he’ll begin to look like the classic Elongated Man sooner rather than later.

‘The Girlfriend Experience’ Is Just One Example of Fall TV’s Most Innovative Storytelling — Very Good TV Podcast

‘The Girlfriend Experience’ Is Just One Example of Fall TV’s Most Innovative Storytelling — Very Good TV Podcast
The fall television line-up is abundant, complex, and almost impossible to keep up with. Those successful in the industry have learned that in order for their program to stick, the content needs to stand out. With a constant influx of new series and continuing seasons, storytelling structure needs to be reinvented every once in a while to keep viewers on their toes.

But changing structure means taking risks, which in the quote-unquote golden age of television strays from the low-risk production mantra that’s been drilled into the head of every industry student. Shows like Starz’s “The Girlfriend Experience” and NBC’s “The Good Place” are taking meteoric leaps of faith with their notions of storytelling. This week on Very Good Television Podcast, Indiewire’s TV Editor Liz Shannon Miller and TV Critic Ben Travers discuss the most innovative television they’ve seen recently.

Baseball Beats Football, At Least For One Week, As World Series Gives Papa John Another Reason To Whine — Ratings Watch

Baseball Beats Football, At Least For One Week, As World Series Gives Papa John Another Reason To Whine — Ratings Watch
The World Series ended in heartbreak for the Los Angeles Dodgers — as the Houston Astros secured their first championship in club history — but it was a tremendous success for Fox. And for at least one week, baseball was once again America’s favorite pastime, dominating over the NFL.

According to Fox, the network averaged 18.9 viewers across all seven games, the second-best audience for a World Series since 2009. The series was down 19 percent from last year’s historic Chicago Cubs win, which also went to seven games (23.4 million), but it topped 2015 by 29 percent (14.7 million) and 2014 by 37 percent (13.8 million).

For the week ending Oct. 29, World Series Game 5 was the most-watched program, at 19.1 million viewers, and second only to “The Walking Dead” in adults 18-49. Among viewers, all five of the week’s World Series games (the final two will be reflected in next week’s ranker), beat the top NFL game of the week.

Why you should be watching Mr Biffo’s Found Footage

Jake Laverde Nov 6, 2017

Fans of Digitiser? Here's why Mr Biffo's Found Footage might just be the web series you were looking for...

Memory is a funny thing. Rather than the fixed viewpoint we expect it to be, memories are malleable objects. Their shapes changed over time, exact details fading away replaced with approximations. But what we remember with sharp clarity is how we felt. TV shows, films music and books can fuel our nostalgia and bring us back to cosier simple times.

It’s the cracks between memories that Mr Biffo’s/Paul Rose Found Footage resides in; a web sketch show that mixes in genuine VHS footage with surreal sketches that play with memory and nostalgia. Riffing on high concept 80s detective shows, cartoon spin offs and songs dedicated to early microcomputer pioneers Steve Wozniak and Sir Clive Sinclair all rendered in gloriously glitchy VHS effect.

Rick and Morty Take the Money for Funny Old Spice Commercial

So basically Rick just sold out Morty’s peace and quiet, and his room, to a bunch of Old Spice cannisters that are going to make the entire bedroom reek to high heaven. Sigh and double Sigh, is this cartoon ever going to end? At this point it’s becoming like an animated sitcom that keeps pulling at the fabric of sense and good taste in order stay alive and yet people keep buying into it like it’s the best thing to ever come around. The worst part is that those who love the show tend to defend it with such passion

The Walking Dead” remains far, far away from the ratings graveyard. The show’s Season 8 opener, which also doubled as its landmark 100th episode, was the week’s top-rated program among adults 18-49, even leapfrogging over NFL football.

But without the benefit of a major cliffhanger like last season, AMC’s “Dead” plunged from last year’s opener (when [it’s been a year, but spoiler alert nonetheless] Glenn and Abraham were brutally murdered on screen). With three days of DVR and video-on-demand usage included, “The Walking Dead” posted a 6.8 rating in live+3 ratings among adults 18-49 this past Sunday (down from 10.8 last year) and attracted 15 million viewers (down from 20.8 million viewers).

In live viewership, “The Walking Dead” dipped to its lowest-rated premiere since Season 3. The show’s erosion allowed a very different kind of drama to surpass it in total viewers: ABC’s surging “The Good Doctor,” which jumped 52 percent in viewers (from 10.6 million to 16.1 million) after three days of time-shifted playback,

‘It,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Drive Strong Time Warner Quarterly Earnings

‘It,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Drive Strong Time Warner Quarterly Earnings
The box office success of “It” and water cooler buzz around “Game of Thrones” fueled Time Warner’s quarterly earnings, helping the media conglomerate trounce Wall Street’s expectations. The strong results come as Time Warner is selling itself to At&T for $86 billion.

Revenues at the company behind HBO, CNN, and Warner Bros. jumped 6% to $7.6 billion for the three-month period ending in September. Over the same frame, operating income rose 11% to $2.2 billion and adjusted operating income climbed 13% to $2.3 billion. Earnings per share clocked in at $1.82. Stronger ticket sales and cable subscription increases helped offset declines in television advertising at Time Warner’s Turner division.

It all translated into an impressive quarter for the soon-to-be absorbed-by-a-giant-telecom media player. Analysts were predicting earnings of $1.59 on revenue of $7.39 billion.

Time Warner said it still expects the sale to At&T to close by the end of 2017. It missed an Oct. 22 termination date for the deal, but At&T extended

365Flicks does the ‘Cincinnati Comic Expo’

So its been over a fortnight since Chris and myself got back from Cinci and although we shared our experiences on episode #90 of the 365 podcast, I also wanted to do a cheeky little write up for the website…

First off we have said it about a hundred times but we can’t thank Matt and Andrew enough for having us over to the Expo and looking after us leading up to the event. Also to the History of Bad Ideas lads who made us feel so at home, as if we have known them for about 20 years instead of the actual 2 and a bit. Meeting them face to face was honestly something i thought would never happen. Special shout out to Jeffrey Nau for being our chauffeur.

Okay then lets get into this… First off, the travelling there was actually not too bad, we didn’t have movies on the
