If you’ve been around me in the past year, I’m sure I’ve brought up “Search Party” at some point during our conversations. It was my favorite show of last year, and arguably one of my favorite shows of all time. Season one was full of mystery and twists with a cast that seemed to be made for one another, and season two is keeping the momentum going.
Last Friday, Amazon released three new shows as a part of their biannual pilot season program. The way the pilot season works is they release a bunch of pilot episodes for new shows, after which the viewers are able to rate and review them. The ones with the best ratings get picked up for a series order. This winter, they released three new pilots — “I Love You More,” “Sea Oak” and “The Climb” — showing a push for female representation both on and off the camera.
As some of our favorite shows are winding down to an end, Showtime has stepped up to fill in the gaps.
Last year, “Stranger Things” was the unexpected frontrunner of the entire TV industry. Relying mostly on word-of-mouth and Netflix’s algorithm, it catapulted into fame without much of a marketing push, which is a true testament to just how good it was.
Halloween recommendations from the Arts staff.
“Broad City” has done some really revolutionary things since its premiere in 2014. They’ve represented female sexuality in a bold and unapologetic way — they show vibrators on screen in a really normalizing way, rather than for shock value.
When I first saw the trailer for “American Vandal,” I felt personally attacked. The show is a parody of the true-crime documentary series genre, following two aspiring filmmakers/high schoolers as they investigate an act of vandalism at their school. As a die-hard fan of anything true-crime, I felt protective of the genre and not ready to watch anything making fun of it. But I bit the bullet and binged the entire series in one sitting. Calling it a parody may not even be correct; instead, it is a love letter to the true-crime genre.
Fans of Nick Kroll, rejoice. He’s back and more disgusting than ever with his brand new animated series, “Big Mouth.” The series follows three friends as they journey into that awkward time of life we’ve all tried our hardest to forget: puberty. The three protagonists are voiced by Kroll, John Mulaney and Jessi Klein, but the star-studded cast doesn’t stop there.
You know how some people have an album they can put on whenever they need a good cry? The album just somehow digs deep inside of you and the tears just start flowing?
This Tuesday, “The Mindy Project” aired its second episode of its final season on Hulu and fans are already voicing their complaints about the new season.
Two years ago, when Netflix released its true crime docuseries “Making a Murderer,” it seemed like that was the only thing people talked about.
In late July, President Trump along with Gov. Scott Walker and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced the Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Foxconn’s plan to build a flat-panel display screen factory in southeastern Wisconsin.
“Twin Peaks: The Return” reunites the cast to continue the beloved story 25 years since the series left off, with Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost having complete creative control once again. “The Return” premiered its first four episodes of the 18-episode season on Showtime this past Sunday, May 21. “The Return” is edgier, scarier and trippier than the original; it is ultimately the renaissance of David Lynch.
As HBO’s “Veep” begins to roll out its sixth season, four college journalists and I had the opportunity to sit down with Matt Walsh, aka Mike McLintock, to talk about his comedic journey.
