Ewan McGregor confirms that Obi-Wan is back, baby!

Ewan McGregor confirms that Obi-Wan is back, baby!

Last week we reported on a rumor that Ewan McGregor—who’s always made it extremely clear that he’d back for more Star Wars stuff pretty much the second anybody asked him—might soon be reprising the role of Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi for a new Disney+ show. Said rumor has now been confirmed, courtesy of McGregor himself, who took the stage at the D23 expo tonight to let the world know:...

Good news: WandaVision is going to be exactly as weird as that title always made it sound

Good news: WandaVision is going to be exactly as weird as that title always made it sound

Ever since its title—the off-model-while-still-technically-containing-the-names-of-its-stars WandaVision—was announced , we knew that Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany’s little corner of the Disney+ MCU TV universe was going to be kind of strange. (It doesn’t help that one of its main characters is, uh, dead, and without any Endgame time travel shenanigans to help explain him coming back to...

Disney+ somehow cancels its first show before the service has even launched

Disney+ somehow cancels its first show before the service has even launched

We’ve known since it was first announced that Disney’s long-in-the-works streaming service, Disney+, was being designed to compete with Netflix. And yet not even we were prepared for the levels the massive entertainment conglomerate would go to beat its rival on every conceivable metric, with Deadline reporting today that Disney has just surpassed Netflix in its recent rush to cancel shows ,...

Teen superhero fave Ms. Marvel is getting her own live-action Disney+ show

Teen superhero fave Ms. Marvel is getting her own live-action Disney+ show

While much of our collective superhero focus over the last week or so has been on the fight raging between Disney and Sony over everyone’s favorite neighborhood tetherball, Spider-Man, the folks behind Disney+ are continuing to do their damnedest to lure us all in to their slightly more down-scale take on Marvel costumed action. They’re doing an irritatingly good job of it, too, with news...

Fox News braniacs warn against the dangers of "shooting up" weed

Fox News braniacs warn against the dangers of "shooting up" weed

Well, the dipshits over at Fox News have gone and done it again. In the past, the network has picked on gun control activist teenagers , said it’s not really that bad to die in a church shooting, actually, failed to check that “a Navy SEAL” is actually a SEAL before having him on air, made Tucker Carlson a political force, and, uh, shit on Mr. Rogers . Now, looking to add yet another...

Gideon, set a course for sadness: Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford are leaving Legends Of Tomorrow

Gideon, set a course for sadness: Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford are leaving Legends Of Tomorrow

Brandon Routh couldn’t quite cut it as Superman, but he found success with another superhero, Ray “The Atom” Palmer (or, as we so affectionately call him, Poor Sweet Ray Ray), who appeared on The CW’s Arrow before going on to serve as one of the anchors for the network’s Legends Of Tomorrow, one of our favorite shows of last year . Routh’s real-life wife Courtney Ford joined him in season...

William Jackson Harper hops aboard Barry Jenkins' new Underground Railroad Amazon show

William Jackson Harper hops aboard Barry Jenkins' new Underground Railroad Amazon show

It’s been a rough summer for Chidi fans, as anyone who saw Midsommar can attest; not only did they have to watch William Jackson Harper —who plays The Good Place’s endearingly conflicted ethical philosopher—act like kind of a jerk in Ari Aster’s brightly lit horror opus, but also, well…If you’ve seen the movie, you’ve seen it, yeah?

That discontent is only made harder by the fact that we now...

Elena Satine to play Julia on Netflix's live-action Cowboy Bebop

Elena Satine to play Julia on Netflix's live-action Cowboy Bebop

Netflix has just found someone to play one of the most important characters in the Cowboy Bebop saga for its live-action adaptation, and the simple fact that she’s going to be there has some big implications about what the streaming service is planning to do in this 10-episode series. According to Variety, Elena Satine (from Revenge and Magic City) has signed on to play Julia, a “sultry...

Paul Rudd finally meets his match in first look at Netflix's Living With Yourself

Paul Rudd finally meets his match in first look at Netflix's Living With Yourself

In an apparent nod to the fact that there’s nobody as effortlessly charming or adorkably handsome as Paul Rudd, Netflix is set to release a new TV series where a guy played by Paul Rudd is quietly replaced by an all-around better guy who is… also played by Paul Rudd. Titled Living With Yourself , the show will mark Rudd’s first leading role in a TV series, and Netflix just announced in a...

Karamo Brown, who could've said nothing, chooses to defend fellow DWTS contestant Sean Spicer

Karamo Brown, who could've said nothing, chooses to defend fellow DWTS contestant Sean Spicer

Despite the fact that he’s a big bag of shit who helped support and promote the Trump administration and its many nightmarish misdeeds, Sean Spicer is set to compete on this season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. It’s not a particularly big deal in the grand scheme of things, since Trump’s current cronies are still putting children in cages and the government is still happily turning a blind...

Just Norm MacDonald, having a Pokémon battle on his old sitcom

Just Norm MacDonald, having a Pokémon battle on his old sitcom

The turn of the millennium was a heady time. There was the Y2K bug and a change in American presidents to worry about, Creed was a legitimate force in pop culture, and, most importantly, those damn kids couldn’t stop talking about their damn Pokémon. Pokémania was spreading so quickly, in fact, that even Norm MacDonald—who’s never seemed one for cartoon monsters—took part in it on an episode...

Adieu, sweet Baskets

Top pick

Baskets (FX, 10 p.m., series finale): Now there’s some sad things known to man, but ain’t too much sadder than the tears of a clown.

FX’s sweet, strange comedy—which earned Louie Anderson a well-deserved Emmy in 2016—comes to an end tonight, meaning it’s time to bid a sad...

The first full episode of Good Eats: The Return is up on YouTube right now

The first full episode of Good Eats: The Return is up on YouTube right now

Few cooking shows have blended the deeply informative with the delightfully stupid as well as Alton Brown’s Good Eats , perhaps the only culinary show in history whose budget for fake mustaches, silly costumes, and giant foam appliances was even a fraction of what it spent on equipment or ingredients. Although the show last broadcast new episodes on Food Network back in 2012 (with a...

The Duplass brothers, obviously, are making a webseries about hip-hop-loving dancing teens for Disney

Following the age-old Hollywood adage that says, “If you can film a bunch of bored-looking white guys talking quietly about nothing for several hours, you can probably film anything,” Disney announced today that it’s tasked Jay and Mark Duplass with producing a new YouTube series for the Disney Channel, centered on a group of aspiring teenage hip-hop dancers. Shook will star Disney Channel...

We regret to inform you that the latest Simpsons Trump short is not, in fact, it, chief

BREAKING: The entire staff of The A.V. Club turned to dust today, then blew away on a hollow and howling wind, shortly after viewing the latest Donald Trump-focused “special” aired by the cast and creators of The Simpsons. It’s not clear yet if said fatal desiccation was caused by the short’s butchering of a Rita Moreno classic, its ham-fisted depiction of Reps Alexandria...

Dancing With The Stars host sounds pretty pissed about Sean Spicer dancing with the stars

Dancing With The Stars host sounds pretty pissed about Sean Spicer dancing with the stars

Nostalgia is a funny thing. Because it tends to work only in relative values—i.e., “then” was better than “now,” so “then” must automatically be good—it can do a lot of work to shave the more craptastic edges off of a person or a moment, even if they were, from an objective point of view, trash.

Take former White House spokesperson Sean Spicer. For a variety of reasons—his general...
