Ron Perlman Says His Presidential Run Is No Longer A Joke: ‘We’re In Danger of Ending Our Days’ — Turn It On Podcast
Ron Perlman fans know he doesn’t shy away from speaking his mind on social media. And lately, he has focused that ire on the assault on democracy coming out of Washington.
“We’re in a very dangerous, very degraded moment in time where the values that everybody who came before us fought and died for are all being tromped upon,” Perlman said. “For no good end except power and greed.”
Perlman has been joking online about his own run for president: Perl2020. But what he’s really trying to do is hammer home the gravity of the situation: “If we don’t get our shit together quickly, we’re in danger of ending our days,” he told IndieWire. “I feel it’s that serious.”
Perlman is back on TV via the streaming service Crackle, and its drama “StartUp,” which recently returned for Season 2. The actor/producer dropped by IndieWire »

Viacom Has Running Room With Ratings Uptick, Charter Carriage Deal–Ubs Analyst
After recent years of a kind of corporate trauma without much precedent in the media business—complete with family feuds, CEO double-crosses and cratering results for its iconic TV and film properties–Viacom has gradually begun to hike the comeback trail. A new report from Ubs analyst Doug Mitchelson argues the bull case for the company, especially in light of this week’s tentative carriage deal with Charter, the No. 2 U.S. cable operator. “Most favored nations clauses… »

Is There a New Naked Gun Film on the Horizon?
Naked Gun was a film franchise that saw enough success to ensure the production of not one, not two, but three separate movies. Said movies were centered around Detective Frank Drebin, who confronted a number of villains with eccentric but nonetheless serious plots. Suffice to say that the movies made extensive use of comedic elements, which is perhaps unsurprising when it had been based on a short-lived spoof of police procedural that had lasted for no more than six episodes on ABC. Is There a New Naked Gun On Its Way? Regardless, Naked Gun was popular enough to inspire some

‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Series Finale: Two Tech Industry Veterans Say Goodbye to the AMC Drama
It premiered as something of an underdog, but after four seasons the AMC drama “Halt and Catch Fire” emerged as a cult and critical favorite, mining unexpected depths of drama from its depiction of the computer industry’s nascent days. And two of its biggest fans, from beginning to end, were computer experts Jim and Janet Miller, who had an intimate connection with the world depicted by the show — because the show’s journey directly tracked with their own lives.
Jim and Janet began their careers in Texas during the early 1980s, Aka the “Silicon Prairie” era, before moving to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1988 to work for companies including Apple, Hewitt-Packard, and Sap. (Along the way, they also raised two children: my brother Eric and I.)
As they’ve done for previous seasons, Jim and Janet (who still live in Silicon Valley) agreed to share their thoughts on »

Is “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” Basically The Empire Strikes Back?
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled to come out in December. As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that discussion of the movie has become more and more frequent, which in turn, means that some old topics have been revived as well. For example, there are now more people wondering about whether The Last Jedi will be a remake of The Empire Strikes Back in much the same manner that they believe that The Force Awakens was a remake of A New Hope. Is The Last Jedi More-or-Less a Remake of The Empire Strikes Back?

Arrow Season 6 Episode 2 Review: “Tribute”
In my review of last week’s Arrow premiere, I mentioned how Slade’s line about Oliver having to choose between being Star City’s hero and a father to his son most likely represented Season 6’s major conflict. I believed that similar to seasons past, which have focused on Oliver Queen struggling to discover his own identity and trying to come to grips with whether he was more hero or villain, this inner turmoil would be the driving force behind the majority of this season’s 23 episodes. I never in a million years would have expected that by the end of “Tribute,” only

‘Red Oaks’ Review: Season 3 Goes Out on Its Own Terms, Ending a Lovely Series with a Dose of Inspiration
For a show perhaps best known for its short shorts and tennis courts, “Red Oaks” has always been about a race: It’s the pursuit of one’s dream vs. the crushing constrictions of time. It’s those fleeting years of adolescence, spent getting high and thinking higher vs. the life’s practicalities, the expectations of parents, and the varying opportunities dictated by privilege. It’s David vs. Goliath, and David’s got a shot at this thing.
This race, though, has largely been run. Entering its final season, “Red Oaks” is flying past the finish line, and viewers are treated to a leisurely cool down, waiting for the results even if they can probably guess ‘em. This extended epilogue isn’t particularly urgent, nor hysterically funny. But it remains galvanizing, as the honesty and maturity that made the series beloved by its small fandom persists, and those who’ve »
