Hey Clinkers, we're back! It's Episode 75 and we're pretty much
ready for Christmas. Sometimes, the hunger for bright colorful
lights and delicious joy is overpowering.
Basically, we're ready for the holidays -- and Aaron gets into
the Christmas vs. Chanukah debate ... again.
Sorry, not sorry.
NEWS HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK:
- Netflix will likely cut Kevin Spacey from the
final season of “House of Cards.” According to THR, “production has
been shut down for two weeks (and potentially longer) to give the
staff more time to rework a final season that had been almost
completely plotted out.”
- Disney is developing a new live action “Star
Wars” TV series for its new streaming service. The service is
expected to launch at the end of 2019, so we’ll be waiting for this
show for a while.
- Amazon is in talks with Warner Bros TV to
possibly develop a “Lord of the Rings” TV show.
- Wentworth Miller will be leaving “Legends of
Tomorrow” and “The Flash,” marking the exit of Leonard Snart from
the CW superhero shows.
- Amazon has picked up a TV adaptation of Garth
Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic book series “The Boys.” Seth
Rogen and Evan Goldberg are executive producers and Eric Kripke has
signed on to join them in directing duties on the series. According
to AV Club, the comic was “centered on a black-ops team—”The
Boys”—who try to stop the corrupt superheroes of the world from
abusing their powers.”
