Woo! The Good Place was just renewed for a second season!

And if you haven't watched the first season yet, you're a forking idiot!
FINE

Oh, for fun!  I just hope it is lumped into one show instead of just as "separate movies" like they used to do.

Since they have an MST3K page (Future home of the new season) it would behoove them to do that.

That's a good collection, though. Whenever I think, "I'd like to watch an episode of MST3K," that list includes just about any episode that immediately springs to mind.

Thankfully, the classic eps dropped here in Canada too (to be fair, I could watch them all on youtube anyway, but its the principle of the thing).  And they are lumped together... as "season one" and in random order.  Eh, close enough.

Has anyone been watching Samurai Jack?  Is it as good as it was?  I had forgotten about it since the announcement was so long ago, didn't know the episodes had started airing.

It's REALLY good!  Really, really good.  The only downside is that you definitely shouldn't watch this one with kids, if that's a thing you do.  But release from censorship certainly doesn't venture towards laziness.  It really is, for the most part, the same show, though it starts in a pretty bleak place for our hero.  But it also has Tom Kenny voicing a scatting robot who sounds like Sammy Davis Jr.

The only downside is that while the voice actor for Aku does a good job, he really doesn't measure up to Mako.

Yeah, I've only caught a few episodes (I was an occasional watcher before, and I'm an occasional watcher now. I really need to binge it sometime..) but it seems to be a darker take on the show without betraying the spirit. There are still those wonderfully eccentric moments of levity, but the undercurrent is darker.

Trailer is out for The Orville

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/Yy9sKeCE8V0" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/Yy9sKeCE8V0</a>

This might be a better show than the new Star Trek supposedly coming out this fall.

I like Seth MacFarlane. He's a talented voice actor, has an impeccable sense of showmanship, and is a great creator of comedy, but it irks me slightly that he writes himself a big starring role in everything he creates. It just seems tacky. Like he's writing big ol' checks for himself.

The co-creator of Wonder Showzen is gonna have a new stop motion anthology horror comedy on Adult Swim called The Shivering Truth.  Sounds interesting.

Jordan Peele to Produce HBO Series ‘Lovecraft Country’ With J.J. Abrams, Misha Green

Quote
Based on the book of the same name by Matt Ruff, the anthology horror series follows 25-year-old Atticus Black, who joins up with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America to find his missing father. They must survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the malevolent spirits that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.
