Code Black Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Third Year

  • TVfanatic
Things might be getting a little meta this season. 

One of the new residents introduced on Code Black Season 3 Episode 1 is filming a documentary ... something along the lines of what Ryan McGarry made about the Los Angeles County Hospital ER.

But he's not the only newbie, and boy did they have a hell of a first day.

Pepper definitely had it the worst. Who gets accidentally dosed with fentanyl on their first day?! I hope her insurance and sick time kicks in right away. 

Despite her being, well, unconscious for most of the hour, we learned a surprising amount about the new female resident. In addition to being a little meek and self-doubting, her real name is Andrea and she had throat cancer as a kid.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Movie “Angus”

Angus is a movie about the life of a fat kid and his wimpy little friend. They’re both picked on relentlessly by a single jock and his friends despite the fact that Angus can easily knock the guy out and possibly break his nose at the same time. But upon reaching high school Angus is seeking to take his schooling elsewhere as he’s grown tired of being picked on all the time. Thanks to a research project he’s been working on for just about the entire school year he might have a chance. But when he’s picked as the prom

AC/DC Guitarist Malcolm Young Passes Away at 64

AC/DC Guitarist Malcolm Young Passes Away at 64
For those about to rock, we salute you. Malcolm Young, founding member of AC/DC and brother to lead guitarist Angus Young, has passed away at the age of 64. Malcolm suffered through dementia and cancer for the last years of his life and has not toured or recorded with the band since 2008's Black Ice. Malcolm Young was the band's rhythm guitar player and is responsible for many of AC/DC's best-known songs that have topped the charts as well as helped launch movies into the top of the box office with his contributions to soundtracks.

In a statement on the Malcolm Young's Facebook, his family said, "Renowned for his musical prowess, Malcolm was a songwriter, guitarist, performer, producer and visionary who inspired many." While the statement is accurate, it also underscores just how amazing Malcolm Young really was. Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Last Action Hero was a box office bomb,

‘Star Wars’-Themed Coming-Of-Age Comedy ‘5-25-77’ Gets A Trailer 13 Years After It Filmed

Most movies have a long journey to movie theaters, but “5-25-77” has a longer one than most. As the title might suggest, it’s a coming-of-age picture about the release of the original “Star Wars,” based in part on the experiences of writer-director Patrick Read Johnson, who was one of the first people outside the creators to see “Star Wars,” before going on to write or direct movies including “Dragonheart,” “Baby’s Day Out” and “Angus.”

Johnson began developing the project in 1999 after teaming up with original “Star Wars” producer Gary Kurtz, and began shooting the low-budget project, about an aspiring filmmaker in the run up to the release of George Lucas’ film, in 2004, with production continuing on-and-off until 2006 (though pick-ups have been done more recently too).

From his very first douche-tastic line in the Scream Queens pilot, we quickly fell in love with Chad's egotistical and hilariously inappropriate personality.

Outlander Finale Victim on Jamie's Betrayal: 'That Is His World Crashing Down'

Outlander Finale Victim on Jamie's Betrayal: 'That Is His World Crashing Down'
The first volleys of the Battle of Culloden have yet to be fired, but that didn’t stop Outlander from dealing one of its main characters a bloody death in Saturday’s season finale.

Dougal MacKenzie, Jamie’s headstrong and bloodthirsty uncle, met his end when Fraser himself (with a little help from Claire) pushed a blade into his chest. Dougal’s death came after he’d walked in on the Frasers talking about poisoning Prince Charles, aka the only way they could think of stopping the carnage Claire knew would happen if the skirmish against the British took place.

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Preacher, Orphan Black, Bones and Orange Is the New Black!

1 | Don’t you wish Outlander had given Angus a few final words, rather than just guttural noises and blood-spitting?

2 | Did seeing this commercial during 30 for 30‘s O.J. docuseries make you wonder how Hertz for so long got away with that missing apostrophe? Ugh.

3 | How is it that the Tonys are vastly more entertaining than other awards shows? Is it because of the snippets of Broadway productions (e.

Outlander Finale Recap: Prison Broken

Outlander Finale Recap: Prison Broken
Warning: This recap contains spoilers for Outlander‘s Season 1 finale.

Deep breaths, everyone.

For months now, Outlander‘s Black Jack Randall, a sadistic Redcoat who makes Jeffrey Dahmer look like a mewling kitten in comparison, has had Jamie Fraser in his sights. In the season finale, Randall slakes his desire by taking command of not only the Scot’s body but also his soul.

I was gonna write, “The latter is harder to watch,” but that’s just not true. Both Jamie’s rape and its psychological aftereffects are horrifying, compelling, awful and expertly acted, and they provoke so many reactions/conversations,

Matt Healy Finally Addresses Taylor Swift Dating Rumors: ‘Bloody Fake’

Matt Healy Finally Addresses Taylor Swift Dating Rumors: ‘Bloody Fake’
Taylor Swifts’ relationship status remains to be in a “Blank Space.”

The 1975 singer, Matt Healy, finally set the record straight after months of speculation that the two were involved in a romance.

“It’s bloody fake, it’s all fake, it’s all a farce,” Matt revealed in an interview with Australia’s 2DayFM show Shazam Top 20 with Angus and Ash. “We met each other, we exchanged numbers in the same way that a lot of people in this kind of world do and we spoke occasionally and then she’s the biggest pop star in the world. I’m in Australia, there’s no relationship or anything happening, it’s funny how people really really buy into that.”

News: Taylor Swift Can't Picture Dating a Guy Right Now

The relationship rumors began in November after Taylor attended The 1975 concert at The Palladium in New York City with her BFFs Selena Gomez and Ellie Goulding.

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap: Episode 9, 'Tupperware Party Massacre'

The title of the most episode of "American Horror Story: Freak Show" should tell you two things. One, all those nice ladies who were disappointed by how drunk and uncoordinated Jimmy was at their Tupperware party will meet a grisly end by the time the credits roll. Two, all pretense of subtlety or nuance has gone out the window.

So Fresh, So Clean

The episode kicks off with Dandy (Finn Wittrock) hitting up Maggie Esmeralda (Emma Roberts) for a peek into her crystal ball. There's something different about Dandy; for one thing, he's crying less. He seems so much more alive and charming since he killed his mother and bathed in her blood. When Maggie looks into her crystal ball, we see flashbacks to Dandy doing some fairly grotesque things with corpses, but it's not clear if Maggie sees the same thing. In the beginning of the season, it seemed

'Friends With Better Lives': James Van Der Beek and Kevin Connolly, 'Friends' by any other name

Right after one group of friends signs off, new friends will be introduced ... by a former writer-producer of "Friends," no less.

Immediately following the series finale of CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" Monday (Mar. 31), the network will debut the sitcom "Friends With Better Lives." The premise of longtime acquaintances in amusing situations -- mainly revolving around their differing relationship levels -- may seem familiar, but it's served up by a fresh ensemble cast merging established TV faces and relative newcomers.

Will (played by "Dawson's Creek" alum James Van Der Beek) is struggling to adjust after his recent divorce; Jules (actress-model Brooklyn Decker) is newly engaged to visibly amorous Lowell (Rick Donald); Kate (Zoe Lister-Jones, "Whitney") is a career-driven serial dater; and the married Bobby (Kevin Connolly, "Entourage") and Andi (Majandra Delfino, "Roswell") observe their friends' allegedly better lives somewhat enviously.

Gratified that sitcom-directing master James Burrows ("The Millers," "Will & Grace") guided the premiere,

James Van Der Beek on Dawson’s Creek and Becoming Famous in 1998

James Van Der Beek on Dawson’s Creek and Becoming Famous in 1998
When Dawson’s Creek producers were casting about for the right actor to play the WB drama’s verbose, Spielberg-loving lead, not everyone was in agreement that it should go to James Van Der Beek. But Kevin Williamson, the prime-time show’s creator, overlooked worries that his top choice, with just a few theater credits and a movie called Angus to his name, lacked the star power required to carry the role and gave the part to the 20-year-old Connecticut native anyway. By the spring of 1998, mere months after the series’ January 20 debut on the WB (R.I.P.), Van Der Beek was being ogled by millions of girls on the cover of Ym (also R.I.P.) and risking death-by-stampede during simple shopping excursions to the mall. As part of our weeklong look at celebrity culture in the year 1998, Vulture spoke with Van Der Beek, now 36, about his breakout year,

Jurassic Park: Ariana Richards interview

As Jurassic Park and its sequels arrive on Blu-ray, we caught up with Ariana Richards, who starred as Lex Murphy, about her role in the film…

Having already appeared in films such as Tremors, Spaced Invaders and Timescape, young actress Ariana Richards landed her most prominent role in the 1993 classic, Jurassic Park. While Stan Winston’s realistic dinosaurs were understandably the main draw for audiences, their presence wouldn’t have been the same without a vital, human dimension – and Richards’ performance as Lex Murphy brought a great sense of adventure and fear to a visually stunning movie.

With Jurassic Park out now on Blu-ray, we spoke to Ms Richards about her role in the film, the impact it had on her career, and what it was like to work with Steven Spielberg

How have you enjoyed revisiting your time making the film as the promotion for this re-release has gone on?

Terri Trailer: Why Do Movies About Overweight People Go for the Easy Fat Jokes? Because the Alternative Is Too Painful

  • Pajiba
One of my favorite films growing up was Angus, the best John Hughes film that John Hughes never wrote. I'm sure many of you agree. It was a classic outsider teenage comedy, only this outsider had real, physical impediments to overcome, and there were no magical makeover cures. It was about looking within and pulling out that inner confidence beaten back by years of humiliation and fat jokes. It was also about James Van Der Beek getting punched in the face.

Terri, the upcoming indie with John C. Reilly and a very solid performance from Jacob Wysocki in the title role, is the more realistic, less superficial version of Angus. I saw it at Sundance this year, and it is hard to watch. It's painful because it feels almost too real. It takes those humiliations and beats you with them. It gets you inside the mind of an obese sad-sack teenager,

Where is "77"?

A few years ago, Star Wars fans waited eagerly for the release of a film about a group of friends who travel cross country trying to acquire a copy of The Phantom Menace before its theatrical release. The movie was Fanboys, a film that spoke to Star Wars fans in a way no other movie had before. Despite some much publicized issues with the script, and some story tweaks and movie studio meddling, the film was released and eventually came to DVD. There was mixed reaction, but fans of Star Wars were thrilled to have a movie that spoke to their love of the franchise.

The galaxy rejoiced and all was well. Except...

There was another movie, announced well before Fanboys, that piqued my interest. Cut from a similar cloth, it was called 5-25-77, a nod to the original release date of Star Wars: A New Hope. Written

Weezer's Memories Tour: What Will Be The Other Songs On The Set List?

Weezer fans apparently managed to make convincing arguments to their local concert promoters, as the band has already booked dates on its Memories Tour, which will feature two nights of Weezer in each city. On the first night, the band will play their classic self-titled debut (otherwise known as "The Blue Album") in its entirety, while the second night will feature a run through their cult-classic 1996 follow-up Pinkerton. Of course, both of those albums are particularly brief (they each contain 10 tracks and "Blue" is only 42 minutes long; Pinkerton is an ever more efficient 35 minutes), which means that the band will be filling in the rest of each concert with a set list of hits from other albums (much in the same way Trent Reznor did when he played The Downward Spiral front-to-back during the Nine Inch Nails farewell tour last year).

Considering how much Weezer like to cram into every show on the road,

Encountering Spielberg: A Steven Spielberg Profile (Part 4)

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary Hollywood filmmaker Steven Spielberg in the fourth of a five part feature... read parts one, two and three.

Collaborating with co-director Douglas Day Stewart (Listen to Me), filmmaker Steven Spielberg produced a ninety-minute video release called The Visionary (1990). The Western centres around a psychiatrist who skeptically recruits the services of an Indian medicine man to heal the troubled relationship between an American Native Indian and his wife.

A modern-day retelling of a classic children’s tale by British playwright J.M. Barrie was the next theatrical release for Spielberg. Hook (1991) stars Robin Williams (One Hour Photo) as the middle-aged Peter Pan who must return to Neverland in order to rescue his kidnapped son and daughter from the clutches of his pirating archenemy Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman). “When I was eleven years old, I, along with other kids, directed a shorten version of Peter Pan in my elementary school,
