* So, The Newsroom did an episode on college campus rape. That went about as well as you'd expect. So in case you need a reminder of why we put up with him despite his being an enormous douchecanoe, here you go.

* It feels like we're reaching the point where everything - even, apparently, single episodes of television - now get "oral histories." Whole TV series, I can understand. A film, if it's especially interesting, sure. If you can get most of the cast and creative team back together to talk about the experience, it can be like a reunion. But here we have basically four people talking about the BtVS episode "Hush."

* Showrunner John Rogers' post-mortems are back! He used to do them after every Leverage episode, and he's doing it again for The Librarians.

* Jed and Maurissa talk about the Agents of SHIELD midseason finale. Plus, an interview with the show's latest casualty (which I was semi-expecting, but it's still annoying, since there are at least four or five other characters I'd rather they'd killed off instead). Also, Blair Underwood will be appearing as Melinda May's ex when the show returns in the spring.

* Mindy Kaling talks about the midseason finale of The Mindy Project.

* Director Rob Marshall gets defensive about changes to Into the Woods.

* Meanwhile, the folks behind The Last Five Years (seemingly a much more difficult show to adapt) talk about making it work as a film without cutting out songs or characters I'M JUST SAYING. Plus, here's the trailer full of singing.

* Mark Hamill will be guest-starring on The Flash, reprising a role he played in the 1990s series.

* Felicia Day has written a book. Or is writing. It's not quiiiiite done yet, but she's announced it anyway.

* Here's a trailer for the new season of The Americans.

So, who watched Peter Pan Live! on Thursday night?

I thought it was technically better than The Sound of Music - for one thing, Allison Williams can sing AND act, and she gave 110% enthusiasm-wise (meanwhile Christopher Walken was kind of just doing whatever the fuck he wanted, lol, which I'm not entirely sure was "acting," per se, but was definitely entertaining). The sets were fantastic (no cardboard Alps here!), and psychedelic crocodile notwithstanding, in general the production values were clearly higher, like they'd actually put some thought into the filming of it.

But overall it kind of left me cold? Mostly because I have zero attachment to the musical (this was actually the first time I'd ever seen it), whereas The Sound of Music has the nostalgia factor, and because you could probably write a whole doctoral dissertation on the creepy and occasionally bizarre gender narratives. (It didn't help that Williams as Peter came across very much as a grown woman pretending to be a prepubescent boy rather than actually capturing the childishness of Peter, which made the flirty scenes with Wendy seem like more of a story of lesbian awakening than anything else. Which, to be fair, is a much better story than "flying asshole kidnaps girl to clean up after his pack of bratty overgrown man-boys.") Oh well. At least they tried to make it less racist?

IDK, I think it was probably not the best choice of musical, so no matter how well done it was, it was never going to have the kind of impact The Sound of Music did. (In case you'd forgotten - like I did - NBC has already locked in The Music Man for next year.)

Anyway, links!

* Marvel casting announcements: Benedict Cumberbatch is Doctor Strange (which we all kind of assumed) and Krysten Ritter is Jessica Jones.

* Jed and Maurissa talk about Agents of SHIELD and the upcoming mid-season finale.

* A piece on the sad state of network sitcoms.

* Newly-bearded Aaron Tveit talks about playing John Wilkes Booth in Assassins.

* Interesting profile of Robert Downey Sr.

* The secret history of chocolate chip cookies! I had no idea it was so scandalous.

* Full audio of Anna Kendrick singing "On the Steps of the Palace." This is the one where Sondheim tweaked the lyrics because she was actually singing it on the palace steps rather than afterward.

* On Reese Witherspoon and our tendency to box movie stars into a particular image, and then be surprised when it turns out they are multi-faceted people, just like the rest of us.
next_to_normal: blue background; text: I was raised to be charming not sincere (charming not sincere)
* Lots of Into the Woods stuff from broadway.com - an interview with James Corden and Emily Blunt (I am trying very hard not to be that guy, but I hate nearly every line reading in that clip at the beginning, lol). And here's Meryl Streep with a different clip (Bwuh? Blue moon?). Also a behind the scenes video, which includes a lot of singing. I will confess to being very impressed with Lilla Crawford's singing, but I desperately wish we'd gotten to hear her line, "You could not, Mr. LIAR!" in that scene with Jack, because that is probably the most-repeated line in my house, lol. 

* Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin talk about the Flash vs. Arrow crossover, which starts tonight on The Flash and continues tomorrow on Arrow.

* Parks & Recreation has a schedule for its final season, and I am kinda bummed that it'll be up against The Flash on Tuesdays, because clearly I like them both.

* Much as I enjoyed the Suicide Squad's appearances on Arrow, I had little interest in the announced film, but the just-announced cast is insane: Jared Leto and Margot Robbie as the Joker and Harley Quinn? Will Smith as Deadshot??

* Finally, we get our first real look at Better Call Saul. It's... eh.

* Unless you live under a rock (or don't care about Star Wars), you've probably already seen the teaser for Episode VII. I... don't particularly care about Star Wars - I mean, I liked the original trilogy, but I hated Phantom Menace and never bothered with the rest of that trilogy - so I'm kinda just meh until they show me some Luke, Leia, and Han. The one thing that did give me nostalgia feels? The theme song.

* An interview with Agents of SHIELD EP Jeff Bell. I admit, I rolled my eyes pretty hard at the idea that Ward is "the new Spike." I hate to break it to you, Marvel, but Ward is about 10 times less interesting, and Brett Dalton is about 100 times less talented than James Marsters, and since being a villain is the only thing that's made him more than a talking block of wood, I don't know a single person who wants a redemption arc for Ward.
next_to_normal: Broadway cast of Into the Woods (Into the Woods)
* The Into the Woods cast is doing interviews. Here's Meryl Streep and James Corden (funny they both mention new songs that ended up getting cut), and Anna Kendrick. Plus, here's a Q&A panel with the whole cast.

Under a cut because I blathered far too much )

* And more reminiscing from the original Broadway cast.

* It's confirmed: Michelle MacLaren will direct Wonder Woman.

* James Gunn has some good points about putting the cart before the horse in developing shared universes.

* Another interview with Natalie Dormer about Mockingjay and Game of Thrones.

* Here's the trailer for next week's Flash vs. Arrow crossover. The cast of both shows also did a Q&A at a special screening of the two episodes - here's part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4 of the panel.

* I think Matthew McConaughey would make an excellent Randall Flagg in The Stand.

* A series of interviews with Damon Lindelof about the first season of Lost.

* Here's a trailer for Agent Carter.

* The Jurassic World trailer looks hilariously ridiculous. Chris Pratt riding a motorcycle flanked by velociraptors! If at any point during this movie, he actually RIDES A DINOSAUR, automatic five stars.

next_to_normal: (choose your weapon)
I have been remiss in telling you about my culinary adventures! (In fairness, "culinary adventures" miiiiight be overstating it a bit.) Still, this is what I've been baking lately.

Breakfast Apple Pie: Egads, this was a really long time ago, because I made it for a Sunday brunch back in the SUMMER. Oh well. It was still good, so I'm going to tell you about it. It's the oatmeal that makes it breakfasty.

Outrageous Peanut Butter Brownies: I actually made these a while ago, and almost didn't bring them in to work because they were soooo good. But in the interest of not weighing a thousand pounds, I decided to share and all my coworkers loved me for a day. Then the next day, they were like, "What'd you bring us?" because they are greedy, ungrateful wretches.

We are having a potluck Thanksgiving lunch in work tomorrow, so this is what I made to bring:

Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits: We all know the only reason to go to Red Lobster is the biscuits, so now you don't have to leave your house! Not hard to make at all, and tastes even better than the restaurant ones.

Buttermilk Cornbread: The jury is still out on this one. I don't know if it's my oven or what, but these needed to bake quite a bit longer than 15 minutes. Which I did not realize until they had cooled and I cut into them and they were still kinda gooey. (I don't understand, I did the toothpick test and it came out clean...) So I put them back in the oven. We'll see how this goes. Also, I made the "jalapeno" variation, and whoooooo that is spicy. Kinda glad I also made the biscuits, since these may not be to everyone's taste.
next_to_normal: Katniss' profile in shadow, with her arrows on her back (Katniss shadow)
* Some interesting actors being considered to play Jessica Jones and Luke Cage in their respective Netflix series.

* Such a random thing to come from Playboy, but I will take any opportunity to revisit the short-lived series Kings.

* Here's a trailer for the new live-action Cinderella movie from Disney.

* Better Call Saul finally has a premiere date. So does The Americans.

* Adam Pally is leaving The Mindy Project.

* Really interesting account of how Mike Nichols and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? helped to change the MPAA rating system.

* Cecily Strong is hosting the next White House Correspondents' Dinner. Good for her.

* Here's a clip of Meryl Streep singing "Stay With Me" from Into the Woods.

* There's also a trailer for Pitch Perfect 2.

* Donald Sutherland compared Jennifer Lawrence to Joan of Arc and Jesus. Look, we all love JLaw, but that's a little ridiculous even as hyperbole. (On the other hand, now I kind of want a Joan of Arc movie starring Jennifer Lawrence?)

next_to_normal: (Hunger Games)
* Peter Capaldi is confirmed to be coming back for the next season of Doctor Who. Not that anyone really expected he wouldn't, since there's usually much more fanfare when a Doctor leaves and a new one is cast, and also we just did that at the beginning of THIS season. But. You know. In case you were worried. No confirmation on Jenna Coleman, however.

* If you're a fan of The Americans or Masters of Sex, you may be happy to hear that The Millers was canceled, thus freeing up Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges to return to those (much better) shows.

* With Mockingjay coming out soon, Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the cast are out in full force. JLaw talks about the crazy ways her life has changed since accepting this role and makes plans to fight crime with Stephen Colbert, or possibly commit crimes as part of her downward spiral. Director Francis Lawrence discusses the pressure of being Philip Seymour Hoffman's last film, Sam Claflin talks a lot about his hair, and Natalie Dormer is her usual fierce self as always.

* Marvel has cast Daniel Bruhl to play an unspecified villain in Captain America: Civil War. No idea who he's actually playing, but here's some speculation, which also indicates that the Winter Soldier will still play a major role in the film. You know, in addition to Tony Stark being around, and Cap possibly having a whole new team, and introducing Black Panther... Man, this is going to be one really crowded movie; I'm not sure why they're even bothering to call it "Captain America" at this point.

* This is why it took so long to get Dancing Baby Groot merchandise.

* Rob Marshall and James Lapine talk about adapting Into the Woods for the film. I do not appreciate being told to "chill out." This is only THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF MY CHILDHOOD YOU ARE MESSING WITH HERE. That is, like, barely an exaggeration, you don't even know.

* First promo for Peter Pan live. Apparently, they are making quite a few changes from the original musical, but some of that's about making it less horribly racist, so I think even the purists would find it hard to argue with that one.

* Fantastic discussion of Connie Britton's career and magnificent hair.

* Interesting piece on how certain casting choices provoke outrage, what the threshold is for authenticity, and why some ethnic minorities get lumped together.

* Mandy Patinkin sings and talks really fast and says the Inigo Montoya quote on 60 Minutes.
next_to_normal: Broadway cast of Into the Woods (Into the Woods)
* AHHHHHH! There was an Into the Woods reunion!! If, like me, your reaction to the movie is "How uneasy I feel," you can listen to the original Broadway cast singing songs from the show and reminiscing.

* There will be a stage version of The Hunger Games. Somehow.

* In the movie version, Jennifer Lawrence was apparently traumatized by having to sing in Mockingjay.

* Community is adding two new cast members for its 6th season.

* Now that The Newsroom is coming to an end, Aaron Sorkin claims he's done with television. So you can relax now, [personal profile] pocochina.

* Of course, Sorkin will probably be very busy rewriting all the curse words out of A Few Good Men so that NBC can air it live.

* Not one, but two interviews with Adrianne Palicki about playing Bobbi Morse on Agents of SHIELD. Plus, Clark Gregg talks about this week's episode.

* Graceland has been renewed for season 3.

* I really enjoyed Room, and the movie looks like it'll have a great cast, though getting a kid who can play Jack will be key.

* Michelle MacLaren would be an excellent choice to direct anything, so I'd be happy if she directed Wonder Woman.

* Is it me, or does Katie Cassidy just look wrong as Black Canary? Maybe it's because Laurel's never been that kind of character, and/or because Sara was the Canary first, but it's just very weird to see her all dominatrix-leathered up. She looks like Laurel play-acting at being a superhero rather than actually being one.

* Out actors from Arrow and The Flash talk about the increasing presence of LGBT actors in superhero shows.

* Really cool write-up from [personal profile] jae of The Americans set visit.

* More about The Librarians. I LOL'd at Christian Kane talking about how he had to learn how not to hit people. (In his defense, he is really, really good at hitting people.)

* Another article praising John Oliver's Last Week Tonight, because it is just that excellent.
next_to_normal: (Dan and Casey writing)
* Agent Carter has an official premiere date, plus here's a preview that aired during Tuesday night's Marvel TV special.

* Hayley Atwell may also be appearing in Ant-Man, presumably in a flashback and not her Winter Soldier old lady make-up.

* This article on how Agents of SHIELD got good touches on some of the same things I mentioned in my last post.

* Showtime is developing a TV series in which partisan divides bring America to the brink of civil war. So, practically a documentary.

* Eddie Redmayne talks about playing Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

* Jon Stewart talks about his directorial debut, Rosewater.

* Neil Patrick Harris did a fascinating podcast interview promoting his book, in which he talks about... pretty much everything.

* Toy Story 4 is definitely happening, y'all. Start stocking up on tissues now.

* Here's an oral history of Sports Night.

* The new Into the Woods trailer actually features singing. You know, I had a dream (nightmare?) last night that I went to see it with my parents and it was AWFUL. And we ended up walking out, and I asked my mom how long we lasted and she looked at her watch and was like, "Twelve minutes." But it had felt like HOURS.

Ugh, is Firefox being super buggy lately, or is it just me? (Or my computer, or the amount of tabs I keep open, lol.) It keeps freezing up so that I have to force-quit and restart. I had to do it about three times today and lost a significant portion of my linkspam and THAT MAKES ME ANGRY.

* I think this is a new trailer for Mockingjay. IDK there have been so many.

* Much as I'd like to see Cristin Milioti with her own sitcom, I haven't been too impressed by A to Z and can't say I'm sad to see it cancelled.

* Brian Williams is kind of hilarious talking about his daughter Allison playing Peter Pan in NBC's live show.

...I definitely had one other link in this section pre-crash, but I can't remember what it was, so DAMN YOU FIREFOX.

And the usual slew of Marvel things:

* ICYMI, here's the Age of Ultron preview that aired during last week's Agents of SHIELD (it's the trailer recut with the party scene that apparently was shown at Comic-Con this summer), and I don't know why they didn't just make this the trailer in the first place, because it is exactly the humor and team interaction the other one was lacking.

* Plus, here's the badass lumberjack Steve clip from the Marvel announcement, and, although it's mostly clips from existing movies, there is actually already a teaser for Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2, which let's not forget are four and five years away, respectively, because that is not in any way reasonable.

* And someone gave away their cameo appearance in Age of Ultron, which I'm assuming is supposed to be a surprise, but kinda makes sense given what we know already.

* Hope you weren't expecting a standalone Black Widow or Hulk movie, because neither of those is happening. Try again maybe in Marvel Phase 20?

* Here's the official Agent Carter preview, which is the same as the one I linked earlier, just with less of someone filming their TV with their iPhone, lol.

I also meant to talk about Agents of SHIELD during my Arrow/The Flash flailing, but didn't get around to it. Read more... )
next_to_normal: (Fred so cute)
I was just lamenting to [personal profile] per_aspera_ad_astra how I never talk about TV anymore, and all I post are linkspams, and lately I find myself having things to say, so let's talk superhero TV shows!

First, The Flash, which got Felicitified this week. Read more... )

I was going to get into my Agents of SHIELD feels, too - in that it's gotten to be a much better show, but in a way that proves they should've just done what they're doing now from the beginning - but this is already rather long and capslocky, so maybe we'll save that for tomorrow, along with all the Marvel previews and leaked videos from this week's announcement.
next_to_normal: Steve Rogers from CA: TWS (Steve close-up profile)
OMG just finished Arrow season 1 and I sort of feel like I've been cheating on Marvel this week but it's really, really good so I had to get that in before we get into all the Marvel stuff. Also, one thing I neglected to mention in my last post - OLIVER'S GREEN FACE PAINT. I find it endearingly ridiculous that, while suiting up for superheroing, this boy apparently stops to APPLY HIS EYE MAKEUP (because that is doing SUCH a good job of concealing his identity, what a humungous dork). On the other hand, I want whatever makeup remover he uses, because DAMN he can get that stuff wiped off quickly when reverting back to civilian Oliver.

ANYWAY. In case you missed it, earlier today Marvel announced what we all will be doing for the next five years, and the big news is that it includes Black Panther and Captain Marvel solo movies! \o/ Now we just have to wait until frickin' 2018 for the first female-led Marvel film. There's also the expected subtitles for Captain America 3 and Thor 3 (Civil War and Ragnarok, respectively), and confirmation that Avengers 3 and 4 will be a two-parter dealing with Thanos, subtitled Infinity War. Here's a live-blog of the announcement, at which RDJ and Chris Evans appeared and did an adorable little fighty thing, introduced Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, then played Rock, Paper, Scissors to decide whose side he'd be on in the Civil War.

Other Marvel stuff:

* No confirmation of the rumor that Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast as Doctor Strange.

* An embargo on Age of Ultron interviews was apparently lifted this week as well, because there are interviews with the Chrises Evans and Hemsworth and with RDJ and Mark Ruffalo from the set. Also, here's a detailed breakdown of basically every frame of the trailer.

* Lots of info on the upcoming Agent Carter series from NYCC. I'm guessing it'll be yanked by the time I get this post up, but for now, here's the first TV spot for the series. I'll update when there's an official one released on YouTube.

Non-Marvel:

* NPH is getting a variety show on NBC.

* TVD's Malese Jow is joining the cast of The Flash. Also, Wentworth Miller talks about playing Captain Cold on the show.

* John Rogers talks about creating the team for The Librarians. (As the creator of Leverage, he knows from teams.)

* The first extended look (with actual singing!) at Into the Woods, plus some of the costume inspirations that came from the cast.

* Here's a trailer for Kyle Chandler's new Netflix series, Bloodline.

next_to_normal: Kate w/ bow and arrow (Kate Bishop)
Got about 2/3 of the way through Arrow season 1 this weekend. Approximately 75% of my reasoning for diving in was "I am really liking The Flash," which is a spin-off and this week's episode is a ~Felicity crossover OMG~ so I kinda wanted to catch up? (idk everyone seemed to love Felicity, so I was like imma just go with it, and okay 15 eps in I get it. I love Felicity, too.)

Sidebar: if you're not watching The Flash, you should be, because Barry Allen is the most adorable superhero ever. I'm serious, the cuteness factor is off the charts. And not cute as in attractive, although he is that, but cute as in, like, puppies. Watching this show is like rolling around in a pile of puppies.

Arrow is... not that, lol. But still good! Y'all know I'm way more of a Marvel girl, so I have literally zero exposure to DC comics, but it's one of those shows where I felt like I knew a lot going in, just by fandom osmosis:

1. Oliver Queen: rich playboy turned vigilante. The guy you get when you don't have the rights to Batman. Fights crime using a bow and arrow because nothing says "taking down the privileged elite and reviving the inner city" like medieval weaponry? Hey, it makes more sense than dressing up like a bat ahem.

2. Oliver was basically stranded on the island from Lost for five years, during which he picked up his superheroing skills and his thirst for justice. (ngl, at one point, Flashback Oliver is like, "What, there are wolves on this island, too? OF COURSE THERE ARE," and I was just like, "LOL oh man wait till he finds out about the polar bears and the time travel.")

3. Felicity Smoak: Everyone in fandom loves Felicity, and ships Oliver/Felicity even though she is not the love interest the show wants you to ship.

4. Laurel is the Arrow version of Iris, basically. Or, I suppose Iris is the Flash version of Laurel, since Laurel came first? Whatever, Laurel is out of the loop on Oliver's secret identity, and therefore never gets to do anything fun.

5. Stephen Amell's abs are crazy awesome, and he is shirtless like 90% of the time.

* Avengers: Age of Ultron official trailer! I am... kinda underwhelmed, actually? I mean, it's all epic and angsty and apocalyptic, and I'm sure it'll be great, but what I have always loved best about the MCU films is the humor and fun.

* Speaking of superhero stories that lay off the angst, The Flash has been picked up for a full season. It's lighthearted without being lightweight, and I am really enjoying it so far.

* Oh god, someone made a chart of all the superhero movies coming out in the next six years. It's... a lot.

* LOL RDJ now owns the gigantic "A" from Stark Tower in The Avengers.

* Adrianne Palicki talks about her appearance on Agents of SHIELD, plus photos of her in her new Mockingbird costume.

* Allison Janney looks back at some of the highlights of her career.

* Tatiana Maslany on Broadway OMG.

* These Game of Thrones photos mean little to me, since I haven't read the books, but apparently it means big changes?

* Lots of new photos from the Into the Woods movie, plus an interview with Anna Kendrick.

* The Bridge will not be getting a third season.

* A memory expert weighs in on the conflicting POVs of The Affair's unreliable narrators.

* The New Yorker profiles Billy Joel, whom I still love after all these years. He was a favorite of my parents, and I grew up on his music, and it was some of the first popular music I learned to play on the piano.

* Warner Bros. announced their DC comics film schedule through 2020 - including a Wonder Woman stand-alone in 2017, which, unless Marvel steps up, will be the first female-led superhero film in either shared universe. They may also be introducing a female sidekick if Jena Malone is really playing Robin in Batman V. Superman.

* In case there was any doubt about what to get me for Christmas, the official Dancing Baby Groot is coming to a store near you.

* Neil Patrick Harris talks about his Choose Your Own Autobiography book: “I’m not trying to force my life down anyone’s throat. But if you want to read about things being forced down throats, you can go to that page.” Bless.

* Jeremy Renner did a Reddit AMA promoting his film, Kill the Messenger. He laughs a lot.

* Andy Mientus is playing a supervillain on The Flash. Speaking of The Flash, I watched the pilot episode and it was okay? I still haven't had a chance to see Arrow, but I will probably watch more of this.

* Transparent has been renewed for a second season. I spent some of this weekend watching most of the first season, so this makes me very happy.

* Very interesting discussion of how The Mindy Project deals with (or doesn't deal with) race.

* Here's a write-up of the NYCC panel on The Americans. Also from Comic-Con, the teaser trailer for Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney.

* And here's the first trailer for The Librarians, a fantasy series from one of the creators of Leverage (and starring Leverage and Angel alum Christian Kane).
