Dorking Out Podcast | © 2017 Dorking Out Show

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we offer a few recommendations for horror movies to watch during the scariest month of the year. We are joined by Anthony C.

In our second segment, Chris and Sonia review BATTLE OF THE SEXES, starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell. And finally, […]Read On »

This interview could not be run until after the third episode of SundanceTV’s six-part miniseries LIAR had aired on Wednesday, October 11. This is because, in the first two episodes of LIAR, we cannot tell whether the title applies to high school teacher Laura Nielson, played by Joanne Froggatt, or surgeon Andrew Earlham, played by Ioan Gruffudd. Actually, on some level, it applies to both of them, and their friends and family as well – everyone in LIAR has secrets – but there is a central issue in the drama created by Harry Williams & Jack Williams (who also created […]Read On »

BERLIN STATION: Showrunner Bradford Winters talks Season 2 – Exclusive Interview

BERLIN STATION - Season 2 - Key Art | ©2017 Epix

By the end of the first season of Epix’s crackling espionage drama BERLIN STATION, the C.I.A. office of the title was in chaos. Top spy Daniel Miller (Richard Armitage) had been shot and badly wounded, station chief Steven Frost (Richard Jenkins) had been jailed (though later released) and fired, and operative Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans) turned out to be leaking information to the press and was on the run. At the start of BERLIN STATION’s second season, beginning Sunday, October 15, one of the big questions would seem to be how all of those characters can find their ways back […]Read On »

Movie Review: HAPPY DEATH DAY

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews, Charles Aitken, Jason Bayle, Phi Vu, Rob Mello, Cariella Smith, Caleb Spillyards Writer: Scott Lobdell Director: Christopher Landon Distributor: Universal Release Date: October 13, 2017  GROUNDHOG DAY isn’t the only tale of someone stuck reliving the same day over and over, but it’s perhaps the best-known in pop culture. Also, it’s the one that gets eventually name-checked in HAPPY DEATH DAY, so it seems appropriate to use that 1993 comedy as a reference point. HAPPY DEATH DAY has, as its basic premise, GROUNDHOG DAY redone as a PG-13 college-set […]Read On »
