KB:360, 11.23.11

I thought with the updated site, it might be time to bring back KB:360, a brief look at what’s happening in the world of TV, Movies, and Music.

Variety chimes in on NBC’s decision not to bring back Community mid-season asking, “What is NBC Supposed to Do?”

A teaser for Season 2 of HBO’s excellent Game of Thrones.

Peter Travers calls Breaking Dawn, Part 1 the worst of the Twilight movies.  That’s really saying something.

NBC is planning on a Munsters remake with Bryan Fuller at the helm.  They have also started development on a series featuring the recently resurrected Muppets.

After two summers of sequels, Pixar will have an original for 2012, Brave.

Another Comic Book gets its shot on TV.  SyFy is developing DC’s Booster Gold.

Christopher Nolan reveals a few tidbits on next summers Dark Knight Rises including the fact that the movie takes place 8 years after the previous film.

A pretty cool look at the use of “green screen” visual effects in TV and movies.

The Hollywood Reporter interviews Bill Simmons.  Talks about what’s ahead for the popular sports writer.

EW talks to Arrested Development’s Tony Hale about the show’s return to Netflix in 2013.

EW also has images and a few words from Peter Jackson regarding 2012’s The Hobbit.

If you’re wondering which shows are likely to make it and which are likely to be cancelled, TV by the Numbers does a pretty good job with their Bubble Watch.

  1. Funny, I’ve heard from a few people Breaking Dawn was the worst. I (thankfully) didn’t see it but my wife who saw it opening night thought it the best of the series.

    Let’s hope Brave is better than Cars 2 – which was definitely the nadir of Pixar’s efforts.

    Man I’m getting excited for the new Batman movie. I still have a lot of trepidation of the new Superman movie. I thought the previous one was a bit unjustly slammed. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as people said. If only they could have eliminated the silly child subplot and made Lex Luthor intelligent.

  2. That Bubble Watch is pretty cool, although I’m surprised at a few placements. Like the Good Wife and L&O SVU should switch groupings. Person of Interest should definitely be higher; it’s our favorite of the new shows.

    The green screen link was fun, too. Kind of mind-blowing. I remember when it was a big deal that they digitized Lt. Dan’s leg out of Forrest Gump.
