One of the many, many surprises of last night’s Game Awards was Anthony Mackie, star of Peacock’s Twisted Metal TV series, walking onstage and confirming a second season of the show after performing a weird act where he pointed and made random noises at various crowd members. We didn’t get what that was about, but more TM is fine with us.
Ted is a prequel of the hit comedy series of the same name. Seth McFarlane will reprise his role as the Vulgar drug addicted Teddy Bear that came to life. Mark Wahlberg will not be reprising his role as John Bennett because it the series will focus on the character’s teenage life. So Max Burkholder will be taking over the role. It will be set in the 90s and we will see the early days of this perverted Teddy Bear and his dorky human best friend. A fair warning for some parents, this show is not for kids. The original film made $549,368,315 in the box office worldwide. The sequel Ted 2, Made $215,863,606, not as big but succesful enough to get a cult following. There some fans who hoped for a Ted 3 but it never happen. Making a prequel makes at this moment as Mark Walberg has been vocal about retiring and leaving Hollywood,
Sony has been lending their IPs out for film and television projects, with varying results. The Last Of Us show on HBO was an instant classic. The Uncharted movie came and went, and I can’t remember if their Gran Turismo film has been released or not (which isn’t a good sign). Twisted Metal, however, is a brand Sony has done nothing with for over a decade, so what does the recognition buy you?
From the wildly successful (The Last Of Us) to the critical bombs (Uncharted), Sony’s planning to make Hollywood adaptions of ALL its video games — even the ones it hasn’t done anything with in way too long. You won’t be getting a new Twisted Metal video game anytime soon, but there WILL be a live-action TV series. You’ll just have to take that, or break out the old PS1, whichever.
Bupkis is a comedy starring Hollywood’s favorite ex-boyfriend, Pete Davidson, the enigma that has left us all scratching our heads. This man has dated more beautiful women than I’ve had hot dinners, and that’s saying something! I mean, seriously, how does he do it? Does he have some sort of charm potion that he’s secretly hiding from the rest of us?
Peacock released a teaser for their upcoming action comedy Mrs. Davis last week, but we never brought it to your attention because it was kind of weak and didn’t tell the full story. We were right to wait…a bigger, more expansive trailer was just released this afternoon, and it’s everything we were hoping for. Scope this out.

The Netherlands, the birthplace of Big Brother and The Voice, is where The Traitors originated. Now we have the Traitors, the new reality tv export coming to out screens.
Tired of unnecessary prequels to popular IP? Too bad, here comes another. Peacock has announced they’re developing a horror series called Crystal Lake that is about the main setting for Friday the 13th BEFORE Jason entered the picture.
The offbeat NBC sitcom Community is how the world found out Dan Harmon existed. The show took a premise that was deceptively safe for the broadcast-viewing masses (a community college study group) and then piled on Harmon’s brand of nerdy insanity, twisting tropes, and high-concept ideas like a throw of the dice that split one episode into six different timelines. Harmon would expand on this formula with Adult Swim’s Rick And Morty, a much more successful show that finally won him the “Right To Do Whatever I Want In Hollywood” ticket.
PBS’s Barney and Friends was introduced in 1992 and became instantly famous, not just for its popularity with toddlers but it’s ANTI-popularity with their parents. Most people above the age of five couldn’t stand the giant guffawing dinosaur, the dopey look on his face, the lack of any effort to make him look like he was talking (his toothy jaw just hung there open the entire time), the overall mind-numbing brainlessness of the whole thing in contrast to deliberately educational shows like Sesame Street…there were plenty of valid reasons for the show and the character to receive the negative response they did. But according to a two-part documentary coming to streaming next month, the reason you hated Barney is because you hate love.
