I am still completely flummoxed by Miracle Workers, the heaven-centric "comedy" starring Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi. After a wildly uneven (yet amusing) pilot, the series dive-bombed into depths of banality that not all the vodka in the world could make amusing. In the interest of keeping my liver healthy, my editor made the judgement […]
What exactly is Miracle Workers? The TBS show bills itself as a comedy, but that would imply that the show is actually funny – so, comedy is out. Miracle Workers is occasionally clever, but not clever enough for me to call it a Clevery. Mostly, Miracle Workers is trying. So I am going to call […]
We really want to like TBS' new comedy Miracle Workers, about a pair of bumbling angels trying to save the world from a cataclysmically bored God. It has a great cast, a somewhat original premise, and the pilot episode had a lot going for it. All the makings for at least an above-decent series with potential […]
Amazon unveiled three behind-the-scenes videos for their new series Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams. It's an anthology series based on the work of the prolific science-fiction author whose work includes Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, the novel that would become Blade Runner. The anthology series will be 10-episodes and features an all-star cast that includes: […]
Screen Junkies have let the fans vote on which movies from 2017 should get Honest Trailers… I assume that means the ones they haven't already done. Number five on their list is the Alec Baldwin-led animated film The Boss Baby. I remember seeing the trailer for this one and thinking that it might have a couple […]
The cast of the upcoming TBS Heaven-set workplace comedy series Miracle Workers are being "blessed" with a new addition, as Variety reported exclusively that Sasha Compère (Rizzoli and Isles, Community) has been cast in a series regular role. Created by Simon Rich (Man Seeking Woman), Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer will serve as executive producers of […]

Boardwalk Empire is coming up for its fifth and final season and HBO has now released a trailer. In the trailer Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) promises to see his enemies put into their graves, the tagline is No One Goes Quietly and we get a hauntingly appropriate song Tranquilize by the band The Killers.

By Ed Saul Hola, fellow internet television nuts! Everyone who writes for Bleeding Cool seems to have garnered for themselves a favorite new drama series which they recommend to pretty much any sentient being that will listen. I myself have grown massively interested in the new 'reimagining' of the classic Coen Brothers film Fargo, with […]
By Jason Henderson, Drew Edwards, Tony Salvaggio, and Julia Guzman Bleeding Cool welcomes back The Castle of Horror Podcast tonight, a weekly internet radio show where professional writers in the comics, games and book industries take a look at horror movies, choosing one movie a week to discuss in depth. [audio:http://recordings.talkshoe.com/TC-99734/TS-846749.mp3] They say: This week […]
Or, by its full title, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
Movie stars I really like lampooning pretentious magicians I really don't.
It's nice to see the actors actually do the magic and the film not depend on CG.
Do you like magic? Showbiz razzle dazzle? Wigs?
I think there are three particularly great representations of male friendship in cinema: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All The President's Men and Monsters Inc. While there's no Woodward and Bernstein prequel practically possible, and Butch and Sundance the Early Years didn't really live up to the later ones, I've got every hope that […]
