Nov 19 is the date for when the ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ reunion will premiere on HBO Max.
It will reunite Smith with co-stars Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Vivian Banks), Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz), and Janet Hubert (original Vivian Banks).
There should be something for all fans of the ’90s sitcom, from stories from behind-the-scenes to the cast reflecting on the late actor James Avery who played the role of uncle Philip Banks.
‘Friends’ was HUGE, THE BIGGEST PHENOMENON on TV and a lot of it it’s attributed to like… everything?
Nah, joke aside, it was a well produced sitcom following a cast dealing with their everyday life and mixed with a great portion of humor. I mentioned the characters and every single article or post about the show should do so. They are unique to each other and the chemistry inbetween is perfect.
You’ve got [PICTURE ABOVE] Phoebe, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Monica and Joey, all of them LOVED by viewers mostly because of what they are. It was common to have a favorite back then, mine was Joey, without doubt. I mean who could get angry with him? He was like the perfect friend.
‘Friends’ aired between 1994 to 2004 and rewatching it today, with the newly gained insight since then has actually made me switch to Chandler as my favorite. His sarcasm just clicks with me and I LOVE every single one of his scenes.
There is a big chance some of you are too young to be familiar with this show or the cast so I want to introduce you to ‘Sarcasm 101’ with Chandler Bing, an SNL sketch from 1998:
‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ is a sitcom from 1990 – 1996 with Will Smith as the lead and it was the breakthrough for his career.
A reboot of the series has been in talks but nothing official confirmed. And that until a couple of days ago when it was publicly made that indeed it’s in works.
The awesome stuff here is that there was an unofficial [fan made] trailer released last year and produced by Morgan Cooper and turned the show it into a drama. Could be cool, right?
Well, Will Smith will return to his roots; this time as a producer, the same Morgan Cooper, the maker of the viral “fake” trailer, will serve as the co-writer, director, and the executive producer. His video is now the OFFICIAL trailer.
Both Netflix and HBO Max seem interested, according to reports.
Here’s the trailer:
I was sceptical at first because the original formula was perfect and nothing could match it. All the characters were like that (imagine Carlton’s dance moves, buttler Geoffrey’s sarcasm, Uncle Phil- yeah you get the idea), the humor perfectly timed and it was a joy to watch.
However, after seeing the trailer, they have the possibility to do something above the normal. They don’t have to match anything, they need to do their own thing and I put my hope that they will achieve something GREAT.
PSA to all ‘Rick and Morty’ freaks: Adult Swim has teased the fifth season with a footage introducing a new nemesis of Rick and even taking shots at DC and Marvel.
There is no release date [yet] announced but the most common guess is that we’ll have to wait shorter than we did before from season three (October 2017) to season four (November 2019). Adult Swim has ordered 70 more episodes back in 2018 and ten of these made up the latest season, so there are 60 left.
The show is available in 31 countries on Netflix and in all of these, the show is streaming at least up-to-and-including season 4A. Season four was released in two parts/batches (with half year in-between) – often referred to as 4A and 4B, of five episodes each.
While the whole world has stopped because of the Co-vid19, so have a lot of expensive projects.
The Guardian reports that some among the biggest such “have been given the go-ahead to restart filming after the UK government and health bodies signed off on new coronavirus safety rules“.
UK’s film and high-end television industry is worth £3.6bn and could rise now that Hollywood monsters as Matt Reeves-directed ‘The Batman’ – starring Robert Pattinson, the third ‘Fantastic Beasts’- film, set in the Harry Potter- universe, and Netflix’s second season of epic-fantasy series ‘The Witcher’ with Henry Cavill’s in the main role – “is understood to be keen to resume production as soon as is safely possible“.
Two of the most popular shows on British television are ‘Line of Duty’ and ‘Peaky Blinders’. Back in mid-March those were the first UK productions to suspend filming.
There’s even a very likely time-frame till the production may resume as the article states that: “This is a green light that signals that the UK is open for business again for film and high-end TV production,” said an industry source. “Many productions have to get up and running again in the next two months or they won’t get made this year as they rely on summer weather and conditions.”
I’m sure we’ll see some release dates pushed back but it’s good to see things are beginning to recover and soon to return to normal.
‘Percy Jackson’ is a serie of fantasy- novels written by Rick Riordan, telling the story of a young boy, son to the Greek god of the seas Poseidon. It is also being referred to as ‘Percy Jackson & the Olympians’.
Five books have been released, beginning with ‘The Lightning Thief’ (2005) and ending with ‘The Last Olympian’ (2009). The first two books have been adapted into movies, released 2010 respectively 2013.
The movies have totally grossed over $420 million at the box office with a combined budget of below $200 million.
The news that a series adaptation is in works was revealed by the author himself with a short video on Twitter, addressed to thedemigods (the fans)
The MEESEEKS are one of the coolest characters I’ve ever seen. They appear in ‘Rick and Morty’ multiples times across the four released seasons.
And here’s WHY:
“Meeseeks are creatures who are created to serve a singular purpose for which they will go to any length to fulfill. After they serve their purpose, they expire and vanish into the air. Their motivation to help others comes from the fact that existence is painful to a Meeseeks, and the only way to be removed from existence is to complete the task they were called to perform. Physical violence or damage cannot eliminate them…”
“… They typically live for no more than a few hours, and thus two days is an eternity for Meeseeks. The longer the Meeseeks stay alive, the more sanity they begin to lose.”
The series aired between 2005 to 2008 with 66 episodes and such a captivating finale that many claim it’s one of the best ever.
Synopsis: The world is divided into four elemental nations: The Northern and Southern Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. The Avatar upholds the balance between the nations, but everything changed when the Fire Nation invaded. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, can stop them. But when the world needs him most, he vanishes. A hundred years later Katara and Sokka discover the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang. Together they must help Aang master the elements and save the world.
According to Hollywood Reporter, ‘Chernobyl’ creator – Craig Mazin – will return to HBO with a new series. What could make it better? Well, that it’s an adaptation of the Playstation- exclusive ‘The Last of Us’.
He’ll be joined by the creative mind behind the game(s) – Neil Druckmann – who will be both writer and executive producer for this one aswell, Dog Evan Wells (president of Naughty Dog) and Carolyn Strauss.

‘The Letter to the King’ is a Netflix adaptation based on the Dutch fantasy classic by Tonke Dragt (first published 1962).
In this sweeping fantasy series, a teenage knight-in-training (Amir Wilson) receives a secret letter on which the fate of the kingdom depends. He embarks on an epic quest to deliver it to the king and stop the world from being plunged into darkness.
I am a HUGE fantasy fan and based by its looks, this show may fill some needs. Some scenes are epic. I’ve seen some BUZZ around the Net and overall the consensus is that people should look forward to this.
The Letter for the King premieres March 20, only on Netflix.
‘Altered Carbon’ debuted in February 2018 and proved itself to become a success for the streaming platform.
The plot centered around a future where consciousness can be digitally stored and transported to another body. Joel Kinnaman played as Takeshi Kovacs, a prisoner returned to life for the purpose to solve a murder and regain his freedom.
‘Avengers’ star – Anthony Mackie (photo above) – takes over the role for the next season, which consists of eight episodes, just like the first season did.
