"Dark Horse" On Netflix

Dark Horse Entertainment, owners of online comic shop "Things From Another World" and publishers of "The Mask", "Timecop", "Hellboy", "R.I.P.D.", "Polar", "Duckman", "Axe Cop", "Dark Matter" and "Sin City", have entered into a production deal with Netflix to exclusively adapt more Dark Horse titles for the streaming service, thanks to the success of "The Umbrella Academy", now in its second season:

"We are very excited about this new arrangement with the talented people at Netflix," said Mike Richardson, Dark Horse president and founder.

"We have strong creative relationships as well as a large content library to work with, and, as we have seen with our recent projects, Netflix is the perfect partner to bring our stories to fans around the world."

Adds Netflix's Cindy Holland, "The Netflix teams are already working in deep collaboration with Dark Horse to identify projects...

'Daredevil' Star Deborah Ann Woll Is a Total Fangirl at Heart

Deborah Ann Woll doesn't just play the most down-to-earth character on "Daredevil" -- she's a bona fide genre-loving fangirl in real life too.

As sweet-natured Karen Page, the office assistant at the rising law firm of Nelson & Murdock, Woll gets to act out a different breed of heroics. Rather than swinging down to rain punches onto back-alley bad guys, Karen is a normal, grounded woman who knows injustice when she sees it. She's frequently fighting through her biggest fears to see that the right thing gets done, and things are finally heating up romantically between her and her not-exactly-blind colleague Matt Murdock, who's secretly cleaning up the streets as Daredevil.

Off-screen, Woll -- previously best known for her breakout stint as the "baby vamp" Jessica Hamby on HBO's "True Blood" -– connects with the Marvel/Netflix series' passionate fanbase on a personal level. She's a gamer, cosplayer, and deeply devoted

Review: 'Angie Tribeca' is Surely Best When Binged, But Shirley, You'll Laugh No Matter What

Review: 'Angie Tribeca' is Surely Best When Binged, But Shirley, You'll Laugh No Matter What
Spoofing police procedurals is one thing. Eviscerating them — as the new TBS comedy "Angie Tribeca" does with addictive glee — is another. Shows like "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," "Axe Cop" and even more vicious parodies like "Reno 911" utilize absurd humor to make light of jobs often depicted with the utmost seriousness in TV and movies, but we haven't seen a live action cop comedy as delightfully cartoonish as Steve Carell and Nancy Walls Carell's creation since "Police Squad" went one and done back in 1982. Since then, cop dramas have kept stacking up, making more and more scenarios, lines and characters into cliches — and thus ripe for parody. Rashida Jones and her merry men tackle each and every one of those cliches with such casual acceptance that it would be easy to mistake "Angie Tribeca" as simple. After all, it's only slightly serialized (by today's standards) and extremely consistent in style, tone and presentation.

What happened to the cast of Weird Science? Checking in on Kelly LeBrock, Robert Downey Jr and the rest

What happened to the cast of Weird Science? Checking in on Kelly LeBrock, Robert Downey Jr and the rest
What if you could create the perfect woman just from the tap of a keyboard and a click of a mouse? That's the tantalising premise at the heart of John Hughes's delightfully dorky teen classic, which celebrates its 30th birthday today (August 2).

To mark this momentous day, we look back at the cast of the beloved '80s film to find out what they've done since. Whatever happened to that fella Robert Downey Jr...?

Kelly LeBrock

'80s sex symbol Kelly LeBrock hit big with her first two roles in Gene Wilder's The Woman in Red and Weird Science, but only appeared in a handful of films after - among them Betrayal of the Dove, Tracks of a Killer and Zerophilia.

She moved out to a farm in Santa Barbara where she looks after animals and sleeps under the stars with her horse, but she keeps cropping up

This week in tv news: John Singleton to make the jump to TV with FX

Lisa Kudrow in The Comeback, which she announced will be returning for a third season.

John Singleton is poised to be the next filmmaker to make the leap to television, as FX has picked up the pilot for Snowfall, a show co-created by Singleton. The press release had this summary of the series.

Los Angeles 1981. A storm is coming and its name is cocaine. Snowfall is a one-hour drama set against the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and its ultimate radical impact on the culture as we know it. The story follows three characters on a violent collision course: Franklin Saint, young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo Zapata, a Mexican wrestler turned gangster in search of his American dream; and Logan Miller, a prominent family’s “black sheep” desperate to escape his father’s shadow.

Singleton will also direct the pilot.

Review: Netflix's 'Daredevil' quickly moves to the top of the TV superhero heap

Review: Netflix's 'Daredevil' quickly moves to the top of the TV superhero heap
The last few years, some network TV executives have tried to do away with the pilot process, ordering shows straight to series based on a script, or even an idea, rather than spending a lot of money filming a pilot episode before deciding whether it's good enough to order to series. This is essentially like deciding to build a house on land that hasn't been surveyed yet and hoping that it'll hold the structure. The results have gone about as expected: "Hieroglyph"(!) was pre-canceled before a second episode was filmed, NBC decided to sell "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" to Netflix rather than have to cancel it after three episodes aired, and other straight-to-series orders have been delayed, or similarly pre-canceled, or (as in the case of Fox's "Weird Loners") sent off to die quietly. Netflix has had more success doing away with pilots, but that's in part because no one but

Are a La Carte Channels a Good Thing? – Geek Girl Navigating the World

  • Boomtron
If you’ve got a TV, you’ve been there. You’re sitting in front of the TV, flipping through channels, and you discover that there’s nothing on. It doesn’t matter of you have three channels or three hundred channels. There’s absolutely nothing that you have any desire to watch on any channel currently in the roster.

It seems like during certain times of the day, you’d better just be prepared to watch either “Friends” or “Seinfeld” because that’s all anyone is running. Even worse, it’s the same rotation of about fifteen episodes of each show, so you will never, ever see any episode that you may have missed without just buying either season sets or the complete series.

If you’re paying for TV, chances are you’re also paying for a bunch of channels you don’t want. I have not ever

Interview: Nick Offerman on his 'Simpsons' voice and TV life after 'Parks and Recreation'

Interview: Nick Offerman on his 'Simpsons' voice and TV life after 'Parks and Recreation'
I talked with Nick Offerman earlier this week and got the answer to the question I'm sure you're all wondering: A ukelele. What? You weren't clamoring for details on the latest carpentry projects from Hollywood's endlessly busy Renaissance Man? Personally, I'm always interested in Offerman's woodworking, because I know the value he puts in maintaining that pursuit and skill -- it's not just a hobby -- while following a schedule that would exhaust a lesser man. On Offerman's recent/current slate: He's completing work on the final season of "Parks and Recreation." He's touring the country with his one-man humor/lifestyle spectacle "Full Bush." He directed the marvelous and star-studded video for Tweedy's "Low Key." He's apparently co-producing a documentary about writer Wendell Berry. He appeared in the summer blockbuster "22 Jump Street" and probably has another half-dozen movies coming out soon. And this Sunday night (October 5), Offerman can be heard

Nick Offerman on his 'Simpsons' guest spot and the end of 'Parks and Recreation'
Nick Offerman has loaned his manly pipes to a variety of animated Fox shows—Bob’s Burgers, The Cleveland Show, Axe Cop—but his crowning vocal achievement will be heard this weekend when he pops up on The Simpsons. In the episode (Sunday, 8 p.m.), relations between Homer and Bart reach a nadir over a serving of broccoli, prompting Marge to ship them off to sea—specifically to the Relation Ship, where conflicts between fathers and sons can be worked out while they learn to become sailors. The Parks and Recreation star voices the man in charge of that vessel,

Marvel brings 'Agents of Shield,' 'Agent Carter' & maybe more to Comic-Con: Live-blog
It's Marvel TV time at Comic-Con, with an hour-long panel that promises to feature Jeph Loeb plus still-unnamed castmembers from both "Marvel's Agents of Shield" and "Marvel's Agent Carter." The question is, will Marvel stop with just the two ABC dramas, or will they start trying to build excitement for the four upcoming Netflix series by, say, bringing in "Daredevil" stars Charlie Cox and Deborah Ann Woll for surprise appearances? (Woll has a long and impressive history of Comic-Con cosplay, including stints as Hit Girl and Axe Cop, so I wouldn't be shocked in the least if she came dressed as Elektra — or Daredevil, for that matter.) And will Loeb be as bombastic as in his usual interviews, or will he acknowledge how rough so much of "Agents of Shield" season 1 was before "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" finally gave the show direction? I'll be live-blogging all the action, updating

Teen Wolf season 4 episode 4 review: The Benefactor

Teen Wolf's excellent visuals continue to shine in season four. Here's Ron's review of The Benefactor...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

4.4 The Benefactor

I was very hesitant about the new additions to Teen Wolf's regular cast. They seemed a bit too young, truthfully. Late teens playing teenagers is one thing, even 23-year-old high school students can pass - though there are some background extras who look like they should be teaching rather than attending classes - but there's something that comes along with teenagers playing kids their age that's a little... not unnerving, per se, but worrying. I'm not sure why, because the new additions seem like they're going to be just as good as the previous cast members.

Scott, despite himself, has a new progeny. To save the life of Liam (Dylan Sprayberry), he had to sink his teeth into him, quite literally. The full moon is approaching.

‘Axe Cop American Choppers’ #2 Continues With That Signature ‘Axe Cop’ Craziness

Story by Malachai Nicolle

Pencils, Inks, and Lettering by Ethan Nicolle

Colors by Dirk Eric Shulz

Cover by Ethan Nicolle

Published by Dark Horse Comics

Axe Cop American Choppers #2 starts off with Axe Cop and Co. Fighting off an army of evil anthropomorphic axes. The evil Axes are the work of three Demon Lumberjacks working for satan. Satan not feeling up to killing God, has decided instead to kill Axe Cop to “tick God off”. The character from issue #1 who’s power is to shoot hypno-chickens out of his brain when he closes his eyes makes a return appearance, this time on behalf of God. This is really just Par for the course with Axe Cop.

Trying to summarize an Axe Cop book is much like trying to summarize one of the Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy novels : an exercise in futility. Like all other Axe Cop tales,
