It’s not every day you’re forced to shield your child’s eyes while watching children’s television show.  Maya the Bee, a show on Netflix created by Studio 100 Animation and based on a German children’s book, came under fire this week after concerned mothers noticed a crude drawing of a penis in one of the scenes. Nope, this isn’t a debunk-able Disney moment—there are screenshots to prove it.  SEE ALSO: Netflix’s prices are insanely low—enjoy it while you can

Kumail Nanjiani comforts a hopelessly drifting Melania Trump on ‘SNL’

Does anyone ever pause to consider how Melania Trump is feeling these days? Saturday Night Live sure does. In the weekly sketch comedy series’ latest First Lady bit, guest host Kumail Nanjiani swoops in as a patient, empathetic call center operator in Pakistan.  When Melania chases away the sadness with mail-ordered Gucci handbags, Nanjiani’s nameless operator to help her with delivery issues… and life issues as well. It’s weirdly touching and heartfelt, in SNL‘s typically absurd way. Read more: http://mashable.com/2017/10/15/kumail-nanjiani-snl-melania-trump-sketch/

Ryan Gosling's "I'm in another masterpiece" look.Image: warner bros. There’s something uncanny about the way Warner Bros. is handling critics and press for Blade Runner: 2049. I’ve seen this weirdness before — and reading the tea leaves, I’d say we may very well have a modern classic on our hands here. But there are also reasons to believe the sequel to the sci-fi touchstone is a replicant of the 1982 original: A cult hit that’s a huge with fanboys and film geeks, but severely bores moviegoers and flops at the box office.

Harrison Ford can tell a joke better than you can

He may be scruffy-lookin’, but he ain’t no nerf-herder. SEE ALSO: Jimmy Fallon just totally crushed J-Law in an axe throwing contest on live TV Harrison Ford appeared on The Tonight Show in what is possibly the most low-fi interview ever. No matter how peppy Fallon gets, Ford stays stalwartly chilled out. So chilled out that Fallon busts out some of Ford’s favourite scotch Bruichladdich (10 points to Gryffindor if you can pronounce it). The two then proceed to tell jokes, and Ford’s glacial delivery is absolutely brilliant, and not just because he tells a joke about ice… Conclusion: we […]

'I won't tell if you won't.'Image: HBO Who can be trusted on a Game of Thrones set? No one. The answer is no one. Not the cast, not the crew, and certainly not the locals. And so as production of the final season approaches, let it be known that Game of Thrones will shoot many endings, maybe three, maybe five, probably more — upholding a Hollywood tradition of spoiler-proofing a TV narrative outcome with too much riding on it not to. SEE ALSO: Sorry: Here’s a bunch of ‘Game of Thrones’ characters singing ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ Everyone […]

Stephen King’s It has audiences sufficiently creeped out just from the trailers, and the film’s killer box office performance proves we love to be scared. When Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott) showed up to an opening weekend show at Alamo Drafthouse, he filmed a little PSA about talking and texting during movies; don’t do it, or you’ll float too. SEE ALSO: The striking differences between Stephen King’s ‘It’ and the ’90s mini series Message received, Georgie. Don’t disrupt the movie, or you’ll die.

Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling have been doing a lot of interviews lately to promote their new film Blade Runner 2049 but this might be the best one yet. SEE ALSO: Harrison Ford sips scotch and out-jokes Jimmy Fallon The pair went on the British morning show This Morning and the interviewer Alison Hammond had them in stitches. Mind you, they had her in stitches as well. There’s a lot of uproarious laughter, and Gosling turns to booze to steady himself. He also pretends to storm off at one point, and drops a pretend microphone. However, dropping his imaginary mic […]

On Oct. 7, for one day only, McDonald’s will let all comers sample a bit of that sweet, sweet Szechuan sauce.

‘Star Trek Discovery’ boldly goes where no other Trek series has gone before. Stick with it.

Sonequa Martin-Green stars in an inspired reboot of the Trek franchise.Image: cbs I’ve lost count of the number of times my fellow nerds have rolled their eyes at the ongoing delay and behind-the-scenes drama of Star Trek Discovery. The show’s launch date slipped by 9 months; showrunner Bryan Fuller departed under unusual circumstances; CBS decided to screen it only on its $6-a-month All Access streaming service, greatly limiting the potential audience.  I can’t speak to whether consumers will flock to All Access for this one show. But having seen the first three episodes, I can attest to the quality of […]
