Staged Now Available in the US

One of my favorite quarantine watches has been Staged. It’s a British TV series in which Michael Sheen and David Tennant (who previously starred together in Good Omens) talk over video chat. They’re supposed to be rehearsing for a play whose staging was canceled due to the pandemic. Instead, they commiserate about life under lockdown, annoying each other and struggling with such challenges as home schooling and checking on the neighbors. Also appearing are their partners, Anna Lundberg and Georgia […]

Leverage to Return

I had no idea they were doing a Leverage reboot/ spin-off/ sequel/ followup… whatever you call it, it’s got four of the five original stars (Beth Riesgraf, Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, and Aldis Hodge) and, according to Deadline, a “fresh update of the original concept, about reformed crooks using their unique skills to right corporate and governmental injustices inflicted on common citizens.” Timothy Hutton won’t return; the new lead is Noah Wyle, who previously worked with some of the same […]

Lucifer Season 5 Debuts Friday

With so few new productions — TV shows and movies can’t be made during lockdowns, obviously — I’m reconsidering the value of the various streaming services I subscribe to. There just isn’t enough there to keep my attention, and I have stacks of DVDs to watch. Unfortunately, each has at least one must-watch that keeps me hooked. The latest, the reason I haven’t canceled Netflix yet, drops this Friday, which is when Lucifer season 5 will be available. Here’s the […]

Keith Knight’s TV Show Has Release Date, Trailer

There’s going to be a TV show based on the life and work of cartoonist Keith Knight, whose cartoons I’ve admired for a long time. His best work, imo, is The K Chronicles but he also had a more traditional newspaper comic strip, The Knight Life, and the editorial-style (th)ink. Woke stars Lamorne Morris (New Girl) as Keef, a cartoonist whose worldview is changed (he starts seeing things talk to him) after a racist police encounter. It will have eight […]

Ruby Rose Quits Batwoman

This is one of those “shame we’ll never know” stories. The star of Batwoman, Ruby Rose, has left the show, and no one’s saying why, although there was a significant on-set injury during a stunt, and the typically regressive superhero audience harassed the actor off of Twitter. Warner will be replacing the lead role with a new, original character. According to Decider, “Ryan Wilder is about to become Batwoman. She’s likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She’s also nothing […]

Wonder Woman Series Coming to Blu-ray

Coming at the end of July is the release of Wonder Woman: The Complete Series, all three seasons of the 1970s TV show, remastered for Blu-ray. The show starred Lynda Carter as Diana Prince, who in season one was Wonder Woman in the 1940s (and aired on ABC). Seasons two and three (on CBS) moved the show to the then-current 70s, with Steve Trevor (Lyle Waggoner) now the son of the previous and the two working as some kind of […]
