1883, For the First Time, Kills Off Someone We Care About — Read Recap
There’s death on this week’s 1883, which is like saying there are blasters on this week’s The Book of Boba Fett or bad choices on this week’s Euphoria: “Yeah,” you might say, “and…?”

But unlike everyone who’s kicked it in the Paramount+ series thus far – by getting crushed by a wagon wheel, drowning in the river or succumbing to a bite in the behind from a sneaky snake — we actually care about this week’s casualty. (And no, I’m not forgetting Margaret’s sourpuss sister. I said what I said.)

Digital Innovation Meets Old Fashioned Storytelling at Unifrance TV Doc Pitch

Digital Innovation Meets Old Fashioned Storytelling at Unifrance TV Doc Pitch
If the six projects presented at a recent TV documentary pitch session held at the Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris share relatively few thematic or stylistic points in common, when taken as a whole, the diverse titles relay two incontrovertible truths: While advances in filmmaking technology now offer industry creatives unprecedented freedoms, when it comes to hooking the audience, nothing beats a good story well told.

Three of the six projects presented at the Rendez-Vous forum reflect the format’s growing technological trends. To offer competing visions of the future, Mad Films/Camera Subjective’s speculative science-fiction project “2080” will use CGI,

Saturday Night Live came back from its holiday hiatus this week with a cold open that finally explains why the Covid situation got so topsy-turvy.

When did every single person get Omicron? The week after December 17th,” Potus points out. “That’s really all I have to say; I yield the remainder of my time to questions.”

The sketch saw “SNL” featured player James Austin Johnson returning to the role of the Commander in Chief, who expressed his frustrations earlier in the week in a news conference with reporters about the intensity of the omicron surge. Speaking from behind a lectern, Johnson’s Biden found a handy scapegoat to blame for rising infection rates in regions around the country: “Spider-Man,” the durable superhero whose

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched the finale of Netflix’s “Archive 81.”

After eight episodes of slowly unraveling its cult-centric mysteries and building up its mold-laced mythology, Netflix’s “Archive 81” concluded its first season with a twist that flipped the tape over for a potential second season: Dan Turner (Mamoudou Athie) crossed into The Otherworld controlled by the demon/god Kaelego to rescue Melody Pendras (Dina Shihabi). On their way out, Dan was shoved back into the post-Visser-apartment-building-fire timeline in 1994 New York City, while Melody was dragged by cult-leader Samuel (Evan Jonigkeit) through
