It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia star Rob McElhenney says the next season of the show will address the coronavirus pandemic. Speaking to NME, McElhenney said that the show, whose fourteenth season aired last year, is very much still alive, and will be back with more episodes. Asked what a quarantine-themes episode of It’s Always Sunny… would look like, McElhenney said: “Well, we actually do have an episode called ‘The Gang Gets Quarantined’'[season nine, episode seven] where we quarantine ourselves in the bar. I think there’s a big flu going around Philadelphia or something like that. ...

The Leftovers: a perfectly grim but utterly compelling post-apocalypse drama

The Leftovers: a perfectly grim but utterly compelling post-apocalypse drama

n an otherwise eventless Friday night – before the return of my beloved Real Housewives of both New York and Beverly Hills – I used to line up episodes of “semi-aspirational working girl” shows (see: and ) to watch somewhat secretly while my partner was away on tour. A few months ago I ran out of that particular glossy genre and finally succumbed to the show recommended to me so many times that it had dulled my interest. About halfway into the first episode I thought, “Oh, I should save this to watch together.” Five hours later, my neck was cricked, my wine bottle empty, a pizza eaten...

A Truth That's Told With Bad Intent

A Truth That's Told With Bad Intent

That’s Isaac Newton in William Blake’s painting, one of the major villains in Blake’s philosophy. Why? Because Newton was a modeler, a proponent of Science with a capital S, the most repressive force in the modern age. I think Blake was absolutely right. Our narratives of COVID-19 are all lies. They are lies of a particular sort, political narratives that have a nugget of truth within them, but are told with bad intent. They are told this way because it works. Because the nugget of truth hides a deeper, unpleasant truth. And a Big Lie. Some are narratives of the political left. Some are...

All Three Seasons of NBC’s Brilliant “Hannibal” Coming to Netflix in June

All Three Seasons of NBC’s Brilliant “Hannibal” Coming to Netflix in June

One of the all-time saddest TV cancellations for horror fans came when NBC pulled the plug on the Bryan Fuller-created “Hannibal” after just three seasons back in 2015, leaving the fates of Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) quite literally hanging off a cliff. Fuller has been keeping hope alive for the return of “Hannibal” for the past five years, but to date, the series has not been able to come back from the dead.Our biggest hope has been that Netflix or another streaming service will swoop in for the save, and though that hasn’t actually happened yet, we’ve...

erry Girls has been critically acclaimed (the first season holds a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes) and smashed ratings records in Ireland and the UK, but despite international distribution via it’s remained criminally under-watched – at least based on my metric of asking everyone I know if they’ve watched the show and being disappointed by the answers.Read moreHere’s the pitch I use to try to convince people to give it a go: “Imagine a show like The Inbetweeners but funnier, with a heartwarming and realistic portrayal of female friendship, that tackles heavy themes like politics, religion...

Sports doc or Michael Jordan vanity project? ‘The Last Dance’ threads a tough needle.

Sports doc or Michael Jordan vanity project? ‘The Last Dance’ threads a tough needle.

“The Last Dance” isn’t just a throwback to the 1990s. It is a throwback to monoculture. With gripping the world, live sports shut down and most Americans sheltering in place, the 10-part documentary series that follows Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls through the 1997-98 season is the type of cultural touchstone of a bygone era. It is ’90s suits and ’90s music, old Jordan dunks and present-day Jordan sipping tequila and talking trash. Averaging more than 5 million viewers per week for ESPN, it is also wildly popular, often feeling like the fastest-moving two hours during a week in...

Terrible name, terrific sitcom: how Schitt's Creek became a surprise hit

Terrible name, terrific sitcom: how Schitt's Creek became a surprise hit

was always going to be a hard sell. There is that title for a start; an off-putting pun that instantly sets the comedy bar below ground level. Couple that with a hackneyed fish-out-of-water premise involving a rich family forced to slum it in a backwater town and you’ve got a one-season sitcom at best. Co-created by and starring Dan Levy, best known as a presenter on MTV Canada, and his dad Eugene, most famous for playing Jim’s embarrassing dad in the films, it was rejected by HBO and Showtime, eventually finding a home on the little-known US pay-to-view channel Pop. Even its main draw, the...

In her tweet, she notes that the “A-12” part of the child’s name is a reference to the “precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft).” “No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle,...

The USWNT originally filed a lawsuit against the US Soccer Federation in March 2019, with 28 members of the team listed as plaintiffs. Friday's ruling was issued in response to a motion for...
