Community‘s Gillian Jacobs Signs On For New Netflix Comedy http://insidepulse.com/2014/09/17/communitys-gillian-jacobs-signs-on-for-new-netflix-comedy/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/09/17/communitys-gillian-jacobs-signs-on-for-new-netflix-comedy/#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 13:00:21 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=367067 Gillian Jacobs has signed on for a new Netflix comedy series.

The Community star will join Paul Rust from Super Fun Night for Love, a half-hour comedy series that is written by Judd Apatow (Freaks and Geeks), Lesley Arfin (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Rust that has already secured a two-season commitment from the online streaming service.

Jacobs and Rust will play Mickey and Gus in a comedy that Netflix says is “an unflinching, hilarious and excruciatingly honest take on modern relationships.” The series will follow the couple as “they navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, and other things they were hoping to avoid.”

“Judd Apatow has a unique comedic voice that manages to be delightful, insightful, and shockingly frank — often at the same time,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “Together with Paul and Lesley, he’s bringing a whole new level of agony and ecstasy to this modern day comedy of manners.”

“I am so excited to get to work with Paul and Lesley on this project,” said Apatow. “Netflix has been supportive in ways I couldn’t create in my wildest fever dreams.”

Love‘s 10-episode first season is set to debut in 2016, with an additional 12-episode Season 2 on deck for the following year.

Big Brother 16 News: Despite Eviction, Frankie Grande Says He Doesn’t Regret Pushing Button, Wants To Marry Zach http://insidepulse.com/2014/09/17/big-brother-16-news-despite-eviction-frankie-grande-says-he-doesnt-regret-pushing-button-wants-to-marry-zach/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/09/17/big-brother-16-news-despite-eviction-frankie-grande-says-he-doesnt-regret-pushing-button-wants-to-marry-zach/#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:51:23 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=367071 Big Brother house, Frankie Grande talked to Entertainment Weekly about whether he regrets pushing the Rewind button, his sister, and how he wants to marry Zach.]]> In one of his first interviews since being evicted from the Big Brother house, Frankie Grande talked to Entertainment Weekly about whether he regrets pushing the Rewind button, his sister, and how he wants to marry Zach.

On pushing the rewind button…

“I don’t regret pushing the button because as a Big Brother super fan, there was no option — the button was going to be pushed. I’m happy I led the charge too. The only thing I regret is not winning the HOH again.”

On his sister…

“I believe that timing is everything, and the time I chose to reveal my true identity and who my family really is was not only perfect but necessary. I had hit rock bottom and I knew that for me to continue on in this game, I had to do something drastic. I ultimately went from going home, to one of the last men standing. So yes, I think it helped.”

On seeing Zach in the jury house…

“I’ve never been more excited about anything in my entire life. I’m hoping he’s waiting there with a ring and a bouquet. If he asked me to marry him, I’d say yes! I’m walking into the jury house with my ‘Team Zach’ shirt.”

The result didn’t come as a surprise to DWTS fans as Lolo didn’t come off as likeable in the first episode. Coupled with her missing several steps in her opening routine and Motsepe’s rookie status, the pair didn’t have enough time to establish a strong support base.

The other couples that found themselves in the bottom included:

Betsey Johnson & Tony Dovolani

Michael Waltrip & Emma Slater

Lea Thompson & Artem Chigvintsev

The Multiversity: Society Of Super-Heroes: Conquerors Of The Counter-World #1 Review

“Conquerors from the Counter-World” (40 pages)

Story by: Grant Morrison
Art by: Chris Sprouse, Karl Story & Walden Wong
Colors by: Dave McCaig
Letters by: Carlos M. Mangual
Covers by: Sprouse w/ McCaig; Frazier Irving; Kevin Maguire & Terry Austin; Guillem March; Mike Sekowsky & Murphy Anderson; Grant Morrison
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $4.99

Biggest challenge yet! How to review the mind-blowing mishmash that is MULTIVERSITY? After all, this book is double-sized (40 pages). You definitely get more bang for your buck with the two-dollar increase from the standard low price.

I will simplify matters and then go the reverse route. It all boils down to this: five separate battles. As an analog to the Justice Society of America, this reality a.k.a. Earth-20 has a nascent group — the S.O.S. (it’s on the cover, duh!). SPOILERS AHEAD!!! The quintet of adventurers each face off against a worthy and appropriate opponent: Immortal Man vs. Vandal Savage; Doc Fate vs. Felix Doctor Faust; Atom vs. Blockbuster; Lady Blackhawk vs. Lady Shiva. An honorable mention goes to Green Lantern Abin Sur vs. Parallax and Count Sinestro but since that happened off-panel with a sudden reappearance and victory, I won’t really count it. Earth-20 vs. Earth-40 where the vile villains hail from. Each hero emerges victorious but there is a price to pay for one of them.

This is a one-shot but by the same token it is the second of eight issues. The only real connecting thread is the cursed comic book (coincidentally named Multiversity) found in every reality!!! Doc Fate considers it the most dangerous artifact in all his dealings with the arcane. Even he believes that it is haunted and should remain untouched. Vandal Savage gets the idea to invade a parallel universe thanks to the mention of said book by Faust and aspires to be a space-faring pirate.

Highlights:

  1. Doc Fate acknowledging his rep as a “devil worshipper” and Abin Sur expertly stating that his appearance evokes fear in most cultures. Irony in its most blatant form.
  2. Zombies walk the Earth!! Quelle surprise!
  3. Lady Shiva saying she’ll wear Fate’s balls as earrings. *chuckle*
  4. Fate using guns to take down the necro-men (zombies).
  5. Fate kicking Faust where it hurts after the cliché but variation phrase “Abrahadabra”.
  6. Master assassin Shiva being shot down by the Blackhawks. Smart move. She who unnecessarily uses exposition…
  7. Parallax the pterodactyl.
  8. Niczhuotan looks eerily like something out of Apokolips (major nod to Jack Kirby ;-))

Name-dropping:

TONS of this!!

• Professor Rival   • Anthro (page 1)

• Man-Eating Men of Ghulistan • Eye of the Giaour (page 4)

• Iron Munro  • Herr Hex (page 5)

• Ibn Al Ghul (page 6)

• Novu, the Proto-Monitor (page 16)

• Nix Uotan   • Niczhuotan [I just realized the similarity in names!] (page 17)

• Buddhakh-Amun • Ra-Amida (page 19)

• Killah, Pixie, Red, Monkey, Princess [the Blackhawks] (page 21)

• the Unspeakable Ones (page 26)

Heady concepts:

• the Multiversity comic book (pages 6, 10, 15)

• Guardian metascopes   • Bleed space(page 8)

• opposite/parallel universe  • mirror image   • multiverse (page 11)

• the Music of the Spheres a.k.a. Musica Universalis (page 16)

• the Makara   • the Monitor-Mind (page 16)

multiverse (page 17)

• the Gate of Fate (page 19)

• the Transmatter Engine $ the Makara Plasma (page 37)

Parallel:

I can’t help but notice that Atom’s tragedy regarding the disfiguring of this face is exactly like what happened to the young hero Damage (pre-New 52). I’m sure it’s no coincidence as in that reality, Al Pratt fathered Grant Emerson. Like son, like father??

Chris Sprouse is best known for being a modern legend. His most famous work would be TOM STRONG from the defunct America’s Best Comic, spearheaded by the infamous Alan Moore. Chris’ pencils certainly do justice (pun intended!) to the pulp feel that is purposefully pervasive in this issue. The cover alone is evocative of that era. The bodies and costumes/uniforms are perfectly presented. He is versatile with all layouts since the action scenes shift locales for each major fight.

Karl Story and Walden Wong fill in the contours nicely focusing on lines and shading where necessary. Dave McCaig enhances each ‘spoke’ of the chromatic wheel and beautifully brings out Doc Fate’s non-superhero costume by making it stand out instead of it being drab given the more ‘monotone’ colours. Major props to Carlos M. Mangual. He did outstanding work on the trade dress, the title of the story, the ‘square bubble’ for Doc Fate’s speech, Lady Shiva screaming ‘DIE!” and the utterance of “Green Lantern’s light” by Abin Sur.

Head-scratcher:

Was there someone else narrating this besides the Immortal Man? Who exactly announced the coming of Blockbuster on pages 17-18? It’s safe to say that this is a story-within-a-story-within-a-story-within-a-story (you get the idea!).

No one will dispute the hare-brained hijinks that have made Grant Morrison the subject of many a scholar. However, the issue here employs a pretty simple plot device: defeat the bad guys even if they come from another universe for a prolonged period of time. The story is too straightforward. Despite all the aforementioned name-dropping and concepts, and fast-paced sequences, there’s nothing that really grabs me here. It’s not like the first issue where I actually exclaimed “WHOA!” and reread it at least three times to absorb it all.

I would land this book on Earth-31 out of 52 Earths (61.5%).

It can now be confirmed that Cody has won his second POV in a row. Considering his partner-in-crime Derrick is the HOH, it is quite certain that the Beast Mode Cowboy himself, Caleb, will be leaving next.

This would mean a Derrick/Cody/Victoria F3 and ensure that both of Derrick’s allies would take him to the F2.
