Fox has renewed comedies Brooklyn Nine-Nine (the best new comedy of the season), The Mindy Project and New Girl, plus psychological thriller The Following for the 2014-15 season. Specifics can be found in the press release after the jump.
Orphan Black is now exclusively available for streaming online through Amazon.com’s Prime Instant Video. The deal between Amazon.com and BBC Worldwide North America was announced today. With the series returning to BBC America on April 19th (9/8C), Prime subscribers have plenty of time to enjoy season one’s ten episodes.
The press release follows the jump.
One of the best headphone makers around is a little company called Westone Audio. They have been making high-quality hearing aids for several decades. In the last few years the company has taken this expertise and branched out into the audio enthusiast headphone realm. Professional musicians are really the target market for Westone’s headphone products. The prices go from $200 up to a staggering $1,000+. I recently had the chance to check out two different sets of headphones from the company, the consumer-targeted $200 ADV Alpha Adventure Series and the higher-end $500 Quad-Drive W40 headphones.
Ok, this is where I admit that I’m old, not the hipster all one of you may think I am. Starting off as a YouTube sensation, Austin Mahone is blowing up big time. The obvious comparison is Justin Bieber (before he went nuts), but I don’t want to compare. When I saw him at JingleBall 2013 a few months ago, I was astounded by how crazy the 16,000 fans that packed the Verizon Center was for this floppy-haired kid.
300: Rise of an Empire is the sequel that the innovative 300 didn’t really need. As with the original, it’s a tale loosely based in Greek history filmed with a cast of six-pack flaunting actors (and two supremely beautiful women) against a CG environment. What was once ground-breaking is now pretty much old hat and the story is dwarfed by the carnage to the point that it becomes Pythonesque.
Although no release date has been set for the U.S., No Clue will undoubtedly be of interest because of the success of Brett Butt’s long-running half-hour comedy series, Corner Gas. Like Corner Gas, No Clue takes a genre (small town life for Corner Gas; hard-boiled detective mystery for No Clue) and tailors it to the low-key presence of writer/star Butt.
Minnesota nice. Fargo. Think about it.
Then follow the jump to several delightfully odd videos teasing the new series from FX. Fargo premieres on Tuesday, April 15th (10/9C).
