Here’s the first trailer for the final series of Boardwalk Empire, the critically acclaimed crime drama about the nefarious and murderous dealings of Enoch “Nucky” Thompson in Atlantic City, New Jersey in the 1920s and 1930s.
I watched th first series but have so far failed to catch up even though all the missed episodes so far are stockpiled on my planner. So to avoid spoilers I stopped watching this brief trailer halfway through. The fifith and final series of Boardwalk Empire will be screened in the UK on September.
Check out this mesmerising video of how Matt Groeing’s animated TV series Futurama might look rendered in 3D. It was created by artist Alexey Zakharov and has rapidly gone viral, with many fans of the now finished series excitedly pushing to make a Futurama 3D movie a reality.
Zakharov also created this video of the Futurama Planet Express ship.
In case you missed it here’s the much anticipated trailer for the eighth series of Dr Who, which was broadcast on BBC One last night during the World Cup final.
As expected Twitter went into fanboy meltdown as the world finally got a glimpse of Peter Capaldi as the new Dr. Also a T-Rex outside the Houses Of Parliament, which considering the current sordid climate of scandal, would be a welcome reality.
Yes UK channel 5USA have done it again. Not content at depriving viewers of Breaking Bad a few years ago, channel big-wigs have now axed the hit American crime series Justified from their schedule. Well done people, engage UK viewers for four full seasons then pull the rug from right underneath them and leave them hanging in the wind.
As fans over the pond currently enjoy the fifth and penultimate season of the Emmy award nominated series, UK viewers will just have to make do with the previous four and be bloody grateful. As engaging content on British TV continues to dry up over here, (Mrs Brown’s Boys anyone?), it seems our transatlantic cousins are enjoying a wealth of rich and captivating television, while we might even be forced to go outside and do something more constructive instead, or God forbid talk to the wife.

If you’ve seen The Wolf Of Wall Street or have read the brilliant book Cityboy by Geraint Anderson then this video clip of a repugnantly wealthy white man in a suit gloating that it’s great we live in a world with so many poor people, won’t come as much of a surprise.
Incidentally the man in the clip is Kevin O’Leary who is worth over $300m and once graduated from college with a degree in environmental studies and…wait for it… anthropology.
Hollywood actor/stand-up comedian Russell Brand appeared on this week’s Newsnight with host Jeremy Paxman and went into a fantastic rant about the reasoning behind his personal decision to refrain from voting.
Regardless if you’re fan of Brand’s work or not there is no denying that he makes some valid points throughout the chat and it’s refreshing to see someone as passionate and as animated about what’s going on in the world today.
Here’s the first official trailer and look at the new Michael Bay produced pirate TV series called Black Sails.
It begins in January and will be shown on the American Starz channel, but no word yet which UK channel will pick it up over here. Apparently work has already begun on a commissioned second series. Black Sails focuses on Captain Flint 20 years before the events of Traesure Island take place and will be set in New Providence a corner of the world described by series creators as a haven of pirates, thieves, prostitutes and fortune seekers….much like Los Angeles.
