Amazon Video Announces New Shows And Movies For October




Amazon Video has released details of all the new TV shows and films it’s going to be rolling out onto its streaming service in October 2017. And it’s fair to say that the 60-plus titles deliver something for everyone. Including fans of AV quality, as it happens, as all four of the new Amazon Original Series on the list will be available in both 4K resolution and high dynamic range.

These four 4K/HDR Amazon Originals are season three of excellent coming of age comedy Red Oaks, and three debut series: Lore, Sigmund And The Sea Monsters, and Inside Edge. Lore is based on the popular podcast of the same name, and is pitched as an ‘unscripted horror anthology series dealing with scary and often paranormal true events that have spawned modern-day nightmares’.

Sigmund… is a live action kids’ show about two brothers who help a friendly sea monster avoid a hunter. Inside Edge is, as its name suggests, a series about cricket – or rather ‘which combines the worlds of cricket and entertainment’, according to Amazon.

Amazon is also rolling out two new Original films in October that underline the diversity of content Amazon seems to be aiming for these days. Documentary City Of Ghosts follows a group of activists trying forced to go undercover when their homeland is taken over by ISIS, while The Wall tells a fictional tale of two US soldiers pinned down by a relentless sniper in Iraq.

Other highlights being licensed to Amazon Video from other studios include season six of American Horror Story, season five of The Americans, superb Denis Villeneuve sci-fi movie Arrival, Coen Brothers classic Fargo, and one of my personal guilty pleasures, 1995’s Clueless, starring Alicia Silverstone.

Here’s the full list of October additions to Prime Video and Amazon Channels. And just to be clear, they’re organized according to launch date, not quality…

The British reality dating show that you need to start watching immediately

Charmaine Blake

“At precisely 9 p.m. every night for the next three months, just as the sun is setting over the United Kingdom, Twitter comes alive.

There’s nothing in the water and we certainly can’t blame it on the weather. It’s all because of Love Island, a British reality dating show that currently has the nation transfixed. Brits are gripped by the action unfolding on their television screens, and they begin flooding Twitter with their feelings using the #LoveIsland hashtag.

So, what the hell is Love Island? Well, in a nutshell, it’s Britain’s answer to the U.S.’s Bachelor In Paradise. The only difference is that the show airs every single night for three drama-packed months.

The new season of Love Island — which began one week ago — kicked off with the arrival of 11 strangers comprising six men and five women. The women arrive first and exchange hugs with their fellow contestants. Then, as the men arrive one-by-one, the ladies step forward when they see someone they like the look of.

Much like Bachelor in Paradise, the power alternates between the male and female contestants each week. Now, if that sentence….”

Kenan Thompson explains why he ‘fears’ leaving ‘Saturday Night Live’

Kenan Thompson is afraid of what comes after Saturday Night Live for him, and we get it.

“The length of Kenan Thompson’s tenure on Saturday Night Live has become a running joke on Saturday Night Live. And he knows it.

During Donald Glover’s recent monologue, Thompson acknowledged just how long it’s been since he first auditioned in 2003. After entering his 15th season in 2017, he became the longest-serving cast member, dethroning previous record holder Darrell Hammond.

The fact that he’s stayed on is impressive — but the consensus is that if you’re not leaving SNL, you probably don’t have anywhere better to go. Or something else is holding you back

In a Hollywood Reporter interview, Thompson explained….”
