The cast of the DuckTales reboot share their childhood memories of the original series

With the premiere of the long-awaited reboot of DuckTales around the corner—this Saturday, August 12—we’ve been in fits of nostalgia reminiscing about the original series, and who better to look back with than the voice cast of the new series? In the video above, we caught up with Ben Schwartz, Danny Pudi, Beck…

The Lost Village isn’t that Smurfing bad, at least for a Smurfs movie

C+

When it comes to movies about the Belgian cartoonist Peyo’s diminutive, liberty-cap-wearing, blue-skinned Schtroumpfs (or Smurfs, as well call them), being “good enough” means exceeding all expectations. Their first, Peyo-directed cinematic outing, released in this country as The Smurfs And The Magic Flute, is notable…

On Powerless, dating means sometimes you wind up with a henchman

B-

Dating is the pits in our universe, so imagine the added level of red flags to watch out for if you throw alter egos into the mix. That’s Emily’s problem here, as the impossibly chiseled nice guy she meets on a girls’ night out with Wendy and Jackie turns out to have a question-mark T-shirt under his normal clothes.…

Alan Tudyk’s peerless buffoonery powers an energetically silly Powerless

B

Powerless went through a more-than-usually-tumultuous retooling before it came to us in its present form, so it’s tempting to cut it even more slack than the usual new series. Luckily, the show is blessed with such a colorful toy box of unique comic talents that, so far, it’s pretty easy to just enjoy the fun, no…

In its entertaining premiere, Powerless stakes out a quirky corner of the DC universe

B+

Living in a world teeming with superheroes is something of a bummer in Powerless, the briskly fun new DC Comics TV series. The residents of the show’s Charm City are, in fact, so jaded by the constant super-smackdowns happening all around them that kids on an imperiled subway car can’t be bothered to look up from…

It’s a bird...it’s a plane...it’s the official Powerless trailer

After pumping the airwaves with teaser trailers, NBC finally offers its longest glimpse yet at Powerless, the new superhero comedy about the people who have to clean up the collateral damage superheroes leave behind. High School Musical’s Vanessa Hudgens stars as Emily Locke, a Charm City resident who gets her dream…

The cast of Disney XD’s new DuckTales show is actually pretty great

Here’s something to warm nostalgia-loving hearts: Earlier today, Disney XD revealed the voice cast for its reboot of DuckTales with a charming singalong to the theme song. On top of that, it turns out the cast is filled with stars adored by the internet. Most notably, David Tennant is taking on the key role of Scrooge…

Better Things’ Sam loses a part she didn’t even audition for

A-

One of the aspects of Better Things that I’ve enjoyed the most is this view Pamela Adlon gives of a working actor. She’s not impoverished and waiting tables, but she can walk down the street and no one cares who she is. It’s not a life that’s often put onscreen, if only because it doesn’t have high glamor of celebrity…

Danny Pudi and James Franco are among Angie Tribeca’s season 2 guest stars

TBS’ hyper-absurd cop show Angie Tribeca is set to return for a second season on June 6, and Deadline has revealed some of the guest stars who will show up to goof around with stars Rashida Jones, Hayes MacArthur, Deon Cole, and Jagger the dog during those 10 new episodes. For starters, Alfred Molina will be returning…
