'Arrested Development' Returns on May 29th

YAY!!! Still one of my all time favorite shows, AD will return on May 29th on Netflix for its fifth season, and I cannot WAIT! It's been a long five years since the divisive Season 4 (which I actually liked by the way, and which is now airing in a remix version on Netflix in case you want to watch it in chronological order and recut to 22-minute episode lengths), but now the Bluths are back together the way everybody wants them- that is, in the same rooms at the same time and all interacting the way they were meant to. Perfect.

'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' to End With Season 4

Well, this sucks. Kimmy Schmidt is one of my favorite comedies, but it looks like this season, which premieres on May 30th, will be its last. The final season is split into two parts, so the first six episodes will show up at the end of the month, with the rest probably sometime in the fall. There's some speculation about wrapping things up with a movie, but who knows if stuff like that will actually happen. Sigh. It was crazy and fun while it lasted.

Amy Adams Sees Ghosts in HBO's 'Sharp Objects'

Summer shows are starting to stack up here. I've got Luke Cage, Casual, GLOW, Cloak & Dagger and now this, an HBO limited series based on the book by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl). What's kinda cool is that the young version of Amy is Sophia Lillis, who played Beverly in It, and who looks so much like a young Amy Adams that I was distracted by it at the time- it appears I'm not the only one who saw the resemblance.

An Old Mystery is Revived in Amazon's Miniseries 'Picnic at Hanging Rock'

I can't wait for this! Everyone should watch the classic Peter Weir Australian film from 1975, which is one of the most dazzling, mysteriously allegorical films ever made. I expect this one will be a little more straightforward, but the source material from the novel should still hold up. It's a limited series, so all six episodes will drop on Amazon Prime May 25th.
