Kidding

When it comes to one-shot takes on television, it’s hard to top that famous scene from HBO’s True Detective. But the new Showtime series Kidding, which was just given a season two, delivered an impressive one recently that really has to be seen if you haven’t already.

The scene shows a woman (played by Riki Lindhome) transforming her life over an extended period of time after being inspired by the show within Kidding, “Mr. Pickles’ Puppet Time,” which is hosted by star Jim Carrey. The shot, which runs a little under two minutes, all takes place in a small apartment with the camera panning around as we see her life changing. It’s awesome to see on its own, but becomes truly incredible when you see how they pulled it off. As the camera pans the room the crew quickly moves in behind it to change the set, while actors move in and out including Lindhome, who also has multiple wardrobe changes to pull off while making her way to each next shot she’s in. You can see how it went in the video below, which shows the scene next to the cast and crew pulling it off.

Halo 5: Guardians

Halo is one of those video game franchises that is ripe for a big or small screen adaptation. Peter Jackson and Neill Blomkamp had made attempts to make the former happen. Although, it “ended up collapsing,” and as a result, the film was put on an indefinite hold. But now the game is respawning for the small screen at Showtime. According to new reports, a Halo TV show has found its showrunner and will start filming in 2019. More on the story below.

Last year, I reviewed a new comic that was the beginning of a prequel story to the Penny Dreadful Showtime series. I also mentioned that I had yet to see any of the series, but that initial issue piqued my interest. Well, here we are several months later and I have binge-watched the entire TV series. Suffice to say, I loved it and was extremely happy to see Penny Dreadful Volume 1 TPB in my inbox last week.

Twin Peaks Showtime

Fear not, the revival of David Lynch and Mark Frost‘s ’90s mystery drama Twin Peaks we first heard about back in 2014 is still on its way to Showtime. We just have to wait until next year instead of getting it sometime this year as originally planned.

To help fans pass the time, the official cast has been revealed. That might not sound like something that would pass any time, but you’ve not yet seen the list. It clocks in at over 200 names, many of which are familiar—some returning stars reprising their roles, which are marked with an asterisk; others just familiar names from different places such as actors like Amanda Seyfried, Tim Roth, Monica Bellucci, and Michael Cera, musicians Trent Reznor and Eddie Vedder, and even MMA star Michael Bisping, just to give you a small sampling.

You can check out the full list below.

David Lynch and Mark Frost's Twin Peaks

Back in May of 2013 Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos talked about the possibility of them reviving dead TV show favorites that were canceled far too early, such as Firefly, Jericho, and Twin Peaks.

As it turns out, one of those shows is now ready to rise from its grave. It has been announced that Twin Peaks, the popular mystery drama from David Lynch and Mark Frost that ran for two seasons from 1990 to 1991 (and was followed by a movie, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, in 1992), will be returning in 2016 on Showtime.

Showtime revealed the news in a video announcement, which can be seen below.

Showtime's Penny Dreadful

A new teaser trailer has been released for Penny Dreadful, the upcoming Showtime series from the filmmakers behind movies like Gladiator, American Beauty, and Skyfall, John Logan and Sam Mendes.

We’ve seen teasers for the show before, but this is the longest of them so far, and the most like an actual trailer. With the series set to premiere on May 11th a full trailer should be coming fairly soon, but for now this is our best look at the show, which is described as a “psychosexual horror” that brings together literary icons such as Frankenstein and his monster, Dorian Gray, and Count Dracula.

Dexter fans are nothing if not dedicated, sticking with the show through thick…and thin (season 6, anyone?). We’ve been through a LOT. On the crest of its last season on air, Showtime’s Dexter made its final San Diego Comic-Con appearance Thursday evening in Hall H.

The panelists included series star/executive producer Michael C. Hall, and past and present co-stars Jennifer Carpenter, David Zayas, Aimee Garcia, Desmond Harrington, Yvonne Strahovski, Lauren Velez, Eric King, and Julie Benz.
