Borat and his daughter on Kimmel:
'Willow' Sequel Series Officially a Go at Disney Plus - Variety
It's actually from the creator of Black Mirror. My sister turned me on to this and I think it's really good. Very strong 1st episode. And thought the latest one (3rd) was also very good.
Basically it is set in the near future where a company called Soul Connex can find your soulmate via the discovery of the soul particle. The first minute of the 1st episode is the Soul Connex ad for the test.
I watched the 1st 2 episodes, and 5 min of the 3rd.
Stand alone stories.
Liked the 1st, not the 2nd, didn't bother finishing the 3rd. Cancelled 1pass.
I didn't even like the first one. I thought the second was marginally better (it at least told a story). But not enough to save it for me.
I've only watched the first episode and can't see how this has enough for a series.
'The Sister' - U.K.
The first episode is available by wizardry.
Fred Armisen makes this at least worth trying. John C Reilly, however, has me doubting that I will last (same would go for Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler).
I suspect every single actually funny moment made it into the trailer and everything else we'll see in the first season is complete idiocy and garbage.
I want to see this, but I think it's streaming only in Canada (on Crave).
It's a low budget production and that usually means lot of cheese, and I do like that.
Moonbase 8? It's an American series, starting on Showtime in a couple of weeks...
That must explain the big Showtime logo in the trailer...
Well, there was always the possibility that it was a clever ploy to throw us off, but I checked and no, it's for real.
(I believe there's an unrelated Showtime Network in Canada, and that's actually what I was checking on...)
Isn't it Show*case*?
Yes, we don't have Showtime in Canada. There's a similarly named network called Showcase, but it's not related nor shows the same programs.
Anyhow, the ads in Canada say "Exclusively on Crave".
And when I said "Streaming only in Canada (on Crave)" I meant "Streaming only, in Canada", and not "Streaming, only in Canada". The former means in Canada, it's available via streaming only, the latter means the show is only in Canada, via streaming. Silly English.
And it doesn't help matters that Showtime has a "Showtime Showcase" channel.
Heh. The only good thing is Showcase (in Canada) just airs syndicated reruns. I don't recall them airing any original programming ever. They're just a channel that will show you NCIS reruns in the middle of the day for 8 hours straight. Of course, they're also highly edited episodes ensuring they could air tons more ads.
