Sex Education: Netflix Enrolls In Eleven Film’s Teen Sex Dramedy Series

Looks like Netflix is getting into the “sex ed” business; except this time, it’s not birds, bees and uncomfortably (& anatomically) awkward diagrams. We’re talking Sex Education, a coming-of-age comedy/drama series from British producer Eleven Film. Created by newcomer Laurie Nunn (Pregnant Pause) and directed by Ben Taylor (Catastrophe), the series is expected to begin production […]

Yesterday, we told that iZombie TV show co-creator/producer and Veronica Mars alumni Diane Ruggiero-Wright was behind the new US remake of Misfits. Today, we get a look at that first script. How does it stand up? Well the language has been toned down, the first UK series began with the memorable “I’m gonna kick you so hard […]

Two New Sci-Fi Shows From The Channel That Brought You Misfits

I loved Misfits. Loved it. From the first time I saw it in the basement in Channel 4 screening room to it’s bitter superpowered flying ending. Well, E4, the smaller, down the dial sister channel to Channel 4, seems to be also missing the vibe and has commissioned to new sci-fi First, Tripped, a parallel […]

The Midnight Beast Wants A Word…

There is, apparently, a sitcom on E4 called The Midnight Beast. I have never heard of it. It’s probably for young folk. But they did send this trailer in, addressed by the cast, to Bleeding Cool readers. That’s you lot. So I feel obliged to run it below.

From Time Travel To Parallel Dimensions – Jamie Mathieson’s ALT

One of my favourite screen outpourings of time travel of late has been Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel with Chris O’Dowd which rather showed up the more recent Richard Curtis time travel film, About Time as being, well, a little bit dull, really. Which is a bad thing for a film about time travel. FAQ […]

Misfits Gives Us A “Five Years Later” For Its Final Episode

“Are you telling me the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles never killed some ignorant fucker for dropping litter or shitting in the street?” “No, they didn’t. Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatallo or Raphael would never have done any of those things, they lived by a code.” “Okay, bad example.” Airing next week on E4 (and currently playing in […]

Misfits series five is on its way, at the end of October. And thankfully, the cast haven’t been ransacked by The Hobbit, Game Of Thrones and the like. Eight hour long episodes… but they are the last ones. I was the first person to write about Misfits, the first to review it, and I still […]

Misfits Renewed For A Fifth Series

Misfits has had a somewhat troubled fourth series this year, with al the original cast now leaving. But recent episodes seem to have picked up rather nicely.

Simon And Alisha Won’t Return In Misfits Series Four

Warning. There are Spoilers for  Misfits to follow. It has just started on Hulu.com in the USA, so many Americans are still to catch up. To that end, I’m going to write a paragraph to keep this off the front page of Bleeding Cool and the bit that gets quoted when they post this to […]
