Westworld Is Turning Into Lost

“I never should have started watching Westworld. Not because I didn’t think it’d be good. An HBO show based on a Michael Crichton idea starring Evan Rachel Wood with all kinds of artificial intelligence? Sign me up! The problem wasn’t that Westworld wouldn’t be enjoyable, it was that it’s the kind of show that invites obsession. The kind that presents Big Questions—that never get answered. I worried, essentially, that it was going to be the next Lost.

This feeling started to solidify last week after “Virtù e Fortuna,” which in addition to really bringing home the idea that these episode titles might mean something (the concept that virtue and fortune determine one’s fate comes from philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli) also drove home the point that some of the show’s in-world iconography…”

True crime podcast ‘Dirty John’ has been made into a TV series, and here’s the trailer

“If you listened right up until the last disturbing seconds of true story podcast Dirty John, seeing it turned into a television series is a pretty harrowing experience.

The six-part podcast presented by Los Angeles Times journalist Christopher Goffard and produced by Wondery (who also produced Dr. Death), has been made into a Bravo series. And now, we have a trailer.

Based on a chilling true story of abuse, manipulation, deception, and violence, Dirty John sees Connie Britton takes on the central role of interior designer Debra Newell, while Eric Bana looks downright menacing playing her formidable partner John Meehan, a.k.a. Dirty John.

Dirty John premieres Nov. 25 at 10 p.m. on Bravo and will run for eight episodes.”

“Finally, a world of Doctor Who fans has seen the result of a very brave and controversial decision, unprecedented in the show’s 55-year history.

That’s right: in Sunday’s episode, for the first time ever, most characters on the show — including the lead — speak with broad Yorkshire accents.

Luckily, that trail was blazed by Game of Thrones, so hopefully most American audiences can understand what the hell this Sheffield crew is talking about.

Oh yes, and Jodie Whittaker just happens to be the first woman to play the Doctor. But judging by a packed house of fans at Madison Square Garden, where Whittaker and incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall watched and discussed her first episode live with New York Comic Con attendees, that part was not controversial in the slightest……………………..”

Add Saturday Night Live‘s “So You’re Willing to Date a Magician?” to the Breaking Hall of Fame.

The dating show sketch, which featured Awkwafina as a bachelorette who’s “not feeling too picky right now,” was pretty funny on its own. But Leslie Jones laughing so hard she had to hide behind her question card puts it squarely into “delightful” territory.

Hey, you can’t tell us you wouldn’t crack up at Kenan Thompson and those nails.
