The Pfeffermans are reunited when Shelly’s husband goes missing in “Transparent.”

Though “Transparent” is nominated for the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, some of its most memorable moments were the more poignant ones. IMDb’s editors picked 11 of their favorites:

1. When the family comes together for dinner at “Moppas”, and Maura wipes BBQ sauce off her daughter’s face.

2. Ali and Josh getting nostalgic over the Jim Croce album from their childhood.

3. In a flashback to 1994, Maura goes to Camp Cordelia and comes to life when she dances with Connie, the very accepting wife of a fellow camper.

4. When the kids all leave Maura’s talent show before the end of her performance, and you feel all the weight of Maura’s pain.

5. In a flashback scene, Shelly Pfefferman tells Mort, “I want you to be a man and save the day!”

6. Maura and Shelly reuniting after his heartbreak at the talent show.

7. Ali returns to Shelly’s house, after getting upset with her family and storming out.

8. When Shelly is yelling at the kids for never coming over to support her, she points out that only Maura came to see her but she keeps referring to Maura as “he.” Maura quietly corrects her until Shelly finally acknowledges her ex-husband as “she.”

9. When Ed shows up with a caricature of himself and a smile… after everyone has been frantically searching for him.

10. The flashback where we hear Ed speak for the first time after we’ve seen him die.

11. Shelly’s obsession with a giant jar of mayonnaise at Ed’s funeral.


Candace Cameron Bure will star in “Fuller House” on Netflix in 2016.

By: Carita Rizzo

The much-anticipated “Full House” spinoff doesn’t hit Netflix until 2016, but IMDb got Candace Cameron Bure to spill some details about the 13-episode series that unites cast members Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Lori Loughlin, John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Bob Saget, and more fan favorites. The Olsen twins’ participation may still be in limbo, but Camera Bure says having them there would be great, “It would be wonderful if they, or one of them, decided to.”


The on-screen reunion of “Fuller House” is everything you want it to be… and more!

“We are having the time of our lives, really! Yes, of course, we’ve all been great friends and we hang out all the time. But just to be on the stage together and working together — we’re all pinching ourselves and saying like, ‘It feels like we didn’t skip a beat. It feels like we never left one another,’” explains “Fuller House” star Candace Cameron Bure, 39. “I think we’re having even more fun this time around than we did the first time around, which is hard to beat because we had an amazing time.” (Fun fact: Cameron Bure was just 11 years old when she first starred in “Full House” in 1987.)


This time DJ’s front and center and she’s a mom.

For Cameron Bure, a mom of three in real life, getting to discover DJ Tanner — also a mother of three and a veterinarian — as an adult has been part of the fun. “We get to see her 20-some years later,” the actress explains. “It’s just fun to see her as a mom and to see what kind of mom she’s become — and what kind of woman. It’s just a character that’s so special to me.”


The storylines reference the stars’ real lives.

Candace Bure is thrilled that series creator Jeff Franklin is back at the helm. “We’re so happy that we have Jeff, who created the original show, because there’s no one who knows the characters better than Jeff. And just like with the original show, the writers always wanted to know what was going on in our personal lives. It’s really the same for this show. I mean, they’re asking me what kind of mom I am with my three kids — and so we’re going to use a lot of my own personal experiences, but we’ll make them DJ’s.”


Is Steve really dead?

On the new incarnation of “Full House,” DJ is a widow, but her ex-husband was not Steve Hale (formerly played by Scott Weinger), whom many considered the love of DJ’s life. “Rest assured, Steve is not dead. Will we learn about him? Definitely,” teases Cameron Bure. “So fans rejoice.”


So, who did DJ marry?

If it wasn’t Steve, who was good enough for DJ in the end? “That’s a good question,” says Cameron Bure. “I think you’ll learn little bits about him throughout the show. Just kind of like you did on the original ‘Full House.’ I don’t know any details of whether they’ll have flashback scenes or anything like that. I have no idea. But we talk about it because you have to. When that happens and you have children, it’s something that you have to discuss — those emotions and the healing from it and how to move on with live.”


How are the two shows similar?

Although it seems like it’s always tragedy that brings the Tanners together, there’s nothing bittersweet about “Fuller House.” “I think the way they’ve developed the show — well, it’s tragedy that starts it off, which was like the original ‘Full House.’ But the themes are always heartfelt, there’s always a situation you can learn something from,” says Cameron Bure. “Tonally, it’ll feel the same as the original ‘Full House,’ which is heartfelt, and funny, and family friendly. But it’s current. It’s in today’s times.”

“Fuller House” makes its debut on Netflix in 2016. For the latest news on the show, click here!

“Fear the Walking Dead”: 10 Things to Expect

August 7th, 2015 | Posted by Melissa Roth in IMDb Picks - (Comments Off)

It may be a spin-off of AMC’s wildly popular series “The Walking Dead,” one that shares the same creator (Robert Kirkman), but “Fear the Walking Dead” depicts a very different world.  The prequel to the original is set in Los Angeles, the polar opposite of rural Georgia, and the new series explores what happens to a city before the zombies and the apocalypse take their toll.

For over a year, the production of “Fear the Walking Dead” was shrouded in secrecy. Now that the show’s August 23 premiere is approaching, the cast and producers are sharing enough information to whet viewers’ appetites. Here are 10 things you can expect from “Fear the Walking Dead.”

1)   It’s “The Brady Bunch”…with zombies

“Fear the Walking Dead” is, at its heart, a family drama. “It takes the idea of a blended family and then injects the apocalypse into it,” says Executive Producer Dave Erickson. The main characters include guidance counselor and single mother Madison (Kim Dickens), her drug-addicted son Nick (Frank Dillane), her overachieving daughter Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey), her boyfriend Travis (Cliff Curtis), and his idealistic son Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie).

“What happens with the show is that you start off with a very normal situation… two broken families,” says Curtis. “My character’s a fixer trying to bring both his families together and build a new family…the antidote to the failings of his last marriage. And the apocalypse pushes us together.”

Adds Dickens, “There’s all kinds of dynamics to play there, which has been really fun for us to sink our teeth into and pay real honor to those difficult relationships.” 

2)   It’s (before) the end of the world as we know it

The “Walking Dead” timeline takes place while Rick Grimes is in a coma, and the show chronicles the rapid disintegration of American civilization. Yet “Fear the Walking Dead” is a prequel that starts with life before all that. Erickson describes the dawning of a dystopia: “You see this texture and fabric of Los Angeles and you see the freeways that are jam-packed and the hillsides that are stacked with houses, and you know as an audience member that all of these people are going to die very, very soon.”

That’s where the “fear” in the title comes from. “It created a way to have dread, anxiety and paranoia without necessarily having a huge ensemble of zombies quite yet,” adds Erickson. Or as Curtis puts it: “When the infrastructure falls and everything falls apart, it gets very scary very quickly.”

3)  The Walkers have fresher flesh…

The Walkers of “Fear the Walking Dead” look and act more human than the rotting creatures of the mothership. “They’re fresher, for lack of a better word,” explains Erickson. The characters have to deal with the horror of watching people they know become monsters. “It’s someone you care about, and suddenly they’re trying to rip someone’s throat out.”

4)  The audience knows more than the characters

Fans of “The Walking Dead” know a few things: how to kill zombies, the virus is incurable, and there is no way to stop the apocalypse from destroying most of humanity.  But the characters on “Fear the Walking Dead” have no idea what is happening. “People think that it will eventually go away,” explains Debnam-Carey. “The government will come in. It will be fixed.”

Erickson hopes that the characters’ naïveté will create dramatic tension. “What we want to do is have the audience leaning in for that very reason… They desperately want the characters to say, ‘Oh, they’re zombies. I get it. You shoot them in the head and that’s how you survive and now you’re good.’ I liked the idea of delaying that as long as we possibly could up to and including the point where the audience just wants to smack them.”  The characters that are unwilling to grasp what’s going on are the characters who may become liabilities for everyone else.

5)  Two characters are prophets of the apocalypse

While everyone is in the dark about what’s actually happening, two characters have an unusual amount of insight into the situation. One is the first person to see a Walker. “He’s something of a prophet of the apocalypse,” explains Erickson. But he has an addiction that makes other people skeptical of his claims.”  The other is one of Madison’s students. She tries to tell him everything’s going to be okay, but he’s got “this sort of earthy sense to him that sort of prophesizes him,” says Dickens.

6)  No one has a clue how to fight zombies

While Rick Grimes’ law enforcement background is instrumental in “The Walking Dead,” the world of “Fear” is filled with educators, barbers and teenagers — not a zombie-hunting skill among them. And Travis is not a violent man, Curtis explains, when everyone wants a bad ass.  Still, some characters will rise to the occasion. “You get to see this warrior come out of [one of the female characters]. It’s not like all of a sudden she’s an expert warrior, but you get to see the primal instinct come out in her.”

 7)  People will have moral qualms

The characters on “The Walking Dead” know that they have to kill or be killed. But on “Fear the Walking Dead,” they still have the morality of the pre-zombie world. One of the central characters will take out a Walker within the first two episodes and will have to grapple with guilt, as Walkers are still thought of as human beings. “[That character's] going to suffer for it,” said Erickson. “It was important that physically, it’s difficult to kill them. It takes a toll and then there’s trauma to it… Do they share what they’ve done or do they hide it because they’re ashamed?”

8)  The show is set in a realistic Los Angeles

The series is set in Los Angeles, but there’s no sign of the glamorous version of the city featured on most TV shows. “We ended up centralizing our family’s home in the El Sereno neighborhood,” explains Erickson.  “It’s quintessentially Los Angeles. But what we never wanted to do is see the Hollywood sign or the Griffith Park observatory. It’s very much an East Side L.A. versus a Westside L.A..”  They wanted to keep the blue collar backdrop of the original show, Erickson explains, while also showing a community with a wide range of people.  “El Sereno is incredibly rich and incredibly diverse, and I think it actually predates the city.”

9)  The cast will multiply

The show initially focuses on a single family, but its scope will expand. Another family, the Salazars, will play a key role. “The complexity of what’s going on just amplifies. For me it’s a matter of remaining true to who our characters are, because if we just stayed with Kim and I, our choices would be pretty limited as a high school teacher and high school counselor. We need other characters that will extend the range of the show. “

 10)  There is an endpoint for the series

“Fear the Walking Dead” has already been renewed for a second season. The first season takes place over about three weeks, and at the end of it, the characters will still not know the scope of the apocalypse. “The discovery process and the education process will extend into season two,” Erickson reveals. “Then there’s a new world to explore at that point.” Though he hopes the show will run for many seasons, he’s already figured out how it will end. “One of the specific stories and one of the specific relationships that I have in my head right now, when that one comes to a head, I think the show will be done. “

A tribe of handsome Scots in kilts took to the streets of San Diego with bagpipes, heralding the arrival of the Comic-Con panel for “Outlander,” the hit time traveler romance from Starz.

Stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, along with author Diana Gabaldon and executive producers Ron Moore and Maril Davis, brought out tribes of devoted fans, who packed the largest ballroom at the convention center late Saturday.

Despite all the kilts and plaids and even some whiskey, the panel focused on the series’ big departure in season two, when Claire (Balfe) and Jamie (Heughan) head to Paris to pursue a new life.

So how will life in France change the story in Season 2?
Based on the second book of the Outlander series, Dragonfly in Amber, season two follows Claire and Jamie to Paris, where they try and stop the Jacobite rebellion, said series creator Ron Moore. The new backdrop changes everything, with new characters and storylines and some inevitable departures from the book.  But author Gabaldron will be writing one of the episodes, keeping things true to her novel.

What about Scotland?
For fans who already miss Jamie in his kilts, rest assured they will be heading back to Scotland in the second half of the season.  And though Jamie assumes a new identity and a new character, “there’s still an element of Scottish-ness about him,” Heughan assured the fans.

Also, a bottle of Laphroaig appeared on the table
Things took a turn when a bottle of scotch whiskey appeared and Heughan poured glasses for the entire panel – challenging his co-star to a drinking game of “say it straight faced.”  She faltered over her first line, and the drinking began.

Sneak peeks that only Comic-Con fans can see
A look ahead was shown for the gathered fans, but not released for the public.  There were glimpses of Tobias Menzies, Frances de la Tour as Mother Hildegard, Fergus, a duel, court life, a hot moment between Claire and Jamie, and a lot of lush silks and satins.

Do they know how it all will end?   
Gabaldron admitted that she’s written the last scene of the last book, and both Ron and Sam have seen it.  But no one else in the world has read that scene.  And no one knows when the rest of us will read it or see it.

Hugh Dancy and Bryan Fuller at the Hannibal panel at Comic-Con

NBC might have canceled there series, but Hannibal’s “fannibals” were out in full force at Comic-Con as the series’ showrunner and head writer Bryan Fuller and stars Hugh Dancy and Richard Armitage wetted fans appetites for the rest of the current season –- and the possibility of a Hannibal film in the future.

The highlight reel from the Comic-Con panel:

A peak into the future: what’s ahead this season

In a preview clip, the Comic-Con fans were treated to a peek at Richard Dolarhyde’s transformation into the Red Dragon. Dancy also mentioned a time jump that sees Will in the not-so-distant future, retreated from the FBI and Hannibal and finally finding “a life” – at least for a moment. Fuller offered another peek into the future: a Blu ray version of the series that won’t blur Dolarhyde’s dragon-tattooed butt cheeks.

The future of the franchise

Fuller hinted that a feature film might in the future.”We’d like to continue with the show so the way this season ends, there may be an opportunity for a little break and then hopefully we’ll find a way to bring Mads [Mikkelsen] and Hugh [Dancy] back to you,” Fuller announced to the audience, which was full of fans holding up “Fannibals Forever” signs. But he lauded NBC for allowing them to do “some crazy sh*t for three years.”

Richard Armitage talks about transforming himself into the red dragon

To fully understand the twisted mind of his character, Armitage went deep into the Red Dragon book. “He’s a man uncomfortable in his own skin, and he sheds his skin to become something more powerful than he really is. I actually did put on a new skin, beginning of the dragon’s creation. (We’ll see with more with the digital effects in the coming season, he hinted.)

Deconstructing Hannibal

A huge David Lynch fan, Bryan Fuller also set out to draw from the works of David Cronenberg, Stanley Kubrick and Tony Scott. “I love visually aggressive filmmakers, and we try to be visually aggressive with Hannibal.” He’s also been influenced by Francis Bacon, the artist who painted dark, emotionally charged figures.” His paintings were inside Fuller’s head, and a lot of Francis Bacon went into the series.” (“Also a lot of bacon,” Dancy added.)

Choosing their own gruesome death

When a fan from the audience asked the panelists to pick a way they’d like to die – from among the twisted fates of the show’s characters – Fuller had the best response: “I wouldn’t mind the cello, I think it’d be awesome if someone played me.”

The most interesting job on a TV series: “Food Stylist”

A fan asked about the “Feeding Hannibal” blog from Janice Poon, the woman who plans the meals for the series – meals involving pig tails, prosthetic intestines, or someone’s leg, for example. “We have some really weird late night email chains that have made it into the scripts,” Fuller explained, as Poon has to figure out how the meals would be prepared and presented, both literally and on a symbolic level.

The second most interesting job: Body Artist

To transform Dolarhyde into the red dragon, Richard Armitage had to begin each day on his stomach in a makeup truck, as two of TV’s most artistic make-up artists applied the full body dragon tattoo to his back “They knelt at my naked backside each day, painting my crack, and then they had to scrub it off at end of the day with towels.”

What they’ll miss most when NBC ends the series run

Fuller paid tribute to the avid fan community that has been “so overwhelmingly supportive and passionate.” Dancy added that he was grateful “to be part of something that feels like it was so embraced and engaged with.”

Imagine if the Allied powers lost World War II, and Americans lived under totalitarian regimes, the eastern states ruled by Nazi Germany and the western states ruled by an Axis-powered Japan.

That’s the premise behind The Man in the High Castle, the Amazon Original Series coming this fall from Ridley Scott (Blade Runner) and Frank Spotnitz (X Files). Based on the Hugo Award-winning Philip K. Dick novel from 1962, the series raises big questions – including a few controversial ones from the Comic-Con audience.  Below, six reasons why the series – and the panel – are making waves:

An alternate pledge of allegiance

The panel marked the debut of the trailer for the series, which evokes a combination of goose bumps and gravitas as it reimagines our pledge of allegiance in an alternate version of history “with liberty and justice for none.”

The question of what is real

Alexa Davalos, who plays the lead, Juliana Craine, brought up author Philip K. Dick’s central question from the novel, which asks how much of reality is in our heads, how much is perception, and how much actually exists. “That’s the world we’re living in in this series,” said Davalos, “always questioning what is real.”

The love triangle

Davalos’s Juliana is torn between her boyfriend back home (Frank Frink, played by Rupert Evans) and a mysterious man she meets in the neutral zone in the middle states (Joe Blake, played by Luke Kleintank). The two men represent different ideologies, which appear to shift as the series unfolds, but they also represent the two different paths she could take in life.

Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa

Born in Tokyo and raised on U.S. Army bases in the deep South, the actor known for playing bad guys (Mortal Kombat, Revenge) has spent his life reconciling the worlds of east and west. In The Man in the High Castle, he finally gets to play a good guy – and embody his own personal struggle in the character he plays, Nobusuki Tagomi, a trade missionary who might just be a savior.

Rufus Sewell

Another perennial bad guy, Sewell (Killing Jesus) pays the penultimate antagonist in the series: a Nazi who is celebrated as an American Hero. Even more challenging is that his character reveals a human side. When an audience member asked if playing certain roles challenged the actors’ moral boundaries, Sewell stepped up to explain his point of view: “If there’s anything that we need to learn, it’s that human beings do these evil things, not Germans.  We need to understand it.”

What’s at stake

“We as Americans are not used to losing, and seeing our values challenged like this makes us think,” said series co-creator Frank Spotnitz. “You watch this and realize what’s at stake,” he added. “It makes us think about our own history and the things we take for granted, and it makes us question what it means to be American. It’s an idea that requires replenishing with each generation.”

Zombie Outbreak in Hall H

July 11th, 2015 | Posted by arno in Comic-Con - (Comments Off)

My interest in “Fear the Walking Dead’ increased after Friday’s Comic-Con panel, but I wonder if AMC should have scheduled the new show’s panel before “The Walking Dead” instead of after it.

To kick off the back-to-back panels, “The Walking Dead” cast and show runner Scott M. Gimple took the stage armed with a season 6 trailer, an announcement that the premiere episode would be 90 minutes in length, and news that the zombie herd would be growing this season – 654 walker extras were used the first episode.

GImple also let it be known that while “we sometimes play with the truth in trailers” that Rick and co. would face multiple threats early in the season, and he’s excited and terrified by the fact that the first three episodes will push the audiences rather hard.

One of the main threats, The Wolves, will be part of the new season but “hopefully in a way you won’t expect” according to Gimple.

Masterfully stoking the rumor mill even further, Gimple admitted there would be some character flashbacks in season 6 but gave no hints as to whose past we might get to see. Later he tipped his hand a bit by indicating that we may find out this season what Morgan had been doing with himself prior to finding Rick. In the present, Morgan will represent a fundamental challenge to the way Rick has been leading the group.

Wrap up all that news and speculation with the cast’s familial chemistry and ability to work the crowd — by now you’ve seen the photos of Melissa McBride walking on stage with a plate of cookies — and you have the best kind of Hall H entertainment you can imagine when the cast really can’t say anything about the upcoming season of their program.

“Fear the Walking Dead”’s cast were in the exact same position — they’ve only shot the pilot episode of their six-episode first season — so the hour-long panel felt a little thin, especially since the cast has yet to develop a repoire. In fact, the cast all met on the day of the first table read in Vancouver.

Elizabeth Rodriguez and Ruben Blades worked with the crowd and their inability to share much information the best. Rodriguez’s character is in nursing school, and she let it be known her skills are a vital part of the series. Also intriguing: Blades’s character is forced to confront a past from which he was trying to get away.

Co-creator Dave Erickson did a good job framing the story as the fall of a major city, especially one where people go to become someone new, which sounded as ominous as he quietly intended. He referred to the zombie outbreak as “the shark you don’t see …we don’t get to full apocalypse until late in the season.”

J.J. Abrams had his mom make him a Jawa costume for Halloween when he was 13.

Domnhall Gleeson’s character name was revealed; he’ll be playing General Hux, a high-ranking officer in The First Order. Oh, and he’s stationed at Starkiller Base.

Oscar Isaac asked Harrison Ford for advice about piloting; Ford said, “It’s fake. Also it’s in space so the same stuff doesn’t apply.”

John Boyega took Harrison Ford to a Nigerian restaurant in Southeast London. A waiter there asked: “Are you Harrison Ford?” His response: “I used to be.” That joke aside, Ford looked amazing consider the leg-shattering accident he suffered recently. I also got the inside scoop on how that happened…

“They were right about the acid flashbacks.” — Carrie Fisher on being back on set.

Abrams quote: I sat with John Williams to show him a Star Wars movie he hadn’t seen yet..

Domhnall Gleeson’s response to the question “Is your character evil?”
“He’s British, so yeah.”

“A little bit like before except we looked a little melted this time. But it was good, like, a Force-melted.” — Carrie Fisher about being back on set with Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford.

“Doctor Who” Teases Season 9

July 10th, 2015 | Posted by arno in Comic-Con - (Comments Off)

Season 9 of “Doctor Who” begins airing in the U.S. on September 19, and Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Michelle Gomez and writer/executive Stephen Moffat teased the show’s return at yesterday’s Comic-Con panel.

Here’s what we learned and we left feeling:

Peter Capaldi got used to playing The Doctor:

“The writers know me now and want to write for me. Because Clara and the Doctor feel more in a groove, they’re really enjoying being the luckiest people in all of history.”

His answer to the question ”When did you feel like Doctor Who?”
“I think it’s when they threw a rubber spider at my face and said: ‘Fight it!’”

Q: How would you react to being in an episode with Sherlock?
A: “More cleverly.”

Michelle Gomez quietly owned the panel:

Gomez on Missy in season 9: “[She] has to come at it from a different angle, which is surprising and exciting to play. “There’s something slightly different to her. Another eyebrow-raising comment: “Who do you think the Master is, and what do you think he/she/it wants?”

On the Doctor/Master dynamic: “This great friendship that just went wrong. It’s her life’s purpose to chase the Doctor and make him realize that ‘No, you started it. I’m right.’” She later added: “We both kill a lot of people. He feels bad about it, I don’t.”

Jenna Coleman describes Clara’s perfect day:

“Teaching a bit of Jane Austen, going to the stationary store, opening the door to the Tardis, and then jetting off to like Jupiter. Or Uranus. Kill some octopus-shaped alien, get some tea, and then hang out with the Doctor.

Chris Hardwick from Nerdist is the premiere Comic-Con moderator:

“I love that you’re cranky and intense, and I kinda don’t know if you’re a good guy or not.” – Chris Hardwicke to Peter Capaldi

“I feel like you kinda dommed the Doctor this season.” Hardwicke to Jenna Coleman

There was a surprise cameo at the end of the Season 9 trailer:

“Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams appeared at the end of the minute-long trailer. “You! said the Doctor. “What took you so long, old man?” was her response.
