‘The Get Down’ Part Two: Teaser Trailer Promises ‘Major League’ Music, Sets Release Date
“The Get Down” got people up out of their seats when it debuted on Netflix last summer, but the new teaser trailer promises we haven’t seen anything yet. Come April 7, when the second half of Season 1 debuts, Baz Luhrmann and The Get Down Brothers are going to drop some “major league” music on us.
Better get ready.
The initial six episodes of “The Get Down” premiered in August 2016, earning largely positive reviews overall (and a rave from IndieWire). Starring Jimmy Smits, Giancarlo Esposito, Justice Smith, Shameik Moore, Herizen F. Guardiola, and Jaden Smith, the first half of Season 1 tracked the rise of a hip-hop supergroup — The Get Down Brothers — formed in the Bronx during the summer of 1977. Simultaneously, Mylene Cruz (Guardiola) gained prominence on her own… with a bit of help from the group’s leader, Books (Justice Smith), and the two shared a steamy romance.
Netflix provided the following synopsis for the second half of Season 1: “Part Two of ‘The Get Down’ picks up in 1978, one year after the events of Part One. The sweeping upheaval of late ’70s New York City finds an as-yet-unnamed new pop cultural force striking a new beat in the Bronx, while disco still reigns supreme. Our young lovers Books and Mylene are caught in the swirl of a looming cultural revolution destined to change everything about their world — but they have this moment to make their mark. Amidst the backdrop of a bankrupt New York City, ruthless gangsters and money-hungry record label bosses, they discover it’s only their creativity and love that will carry them through — and that they’ll sacrifice everything for their music, and each other.
“The Get Down” Part Two premieres April 7. Watch the teaser trailer below.

Steve McQueen’s Scrapped HBO Series ‘Codes of Conduct’ Still Alive, Seeking New Home
It was almost exactly a year ago when HBO was at their peak of executive and creative turmoil. The hugely expensive “Vinyl” had premiered to dismal ratings and reviews (and the second season would be canceled a couple months later), and a multitude of high profile projects — David Fincher‘s “Videosyncrazy” and “Utopia,” the miniseries “Lewis And Clark” — all stalled out.

Ratings: CBS’ ‘Doubt’ Is a Dud, No Doubt
Let there be no more doubt about the lack of interest in CBS’ “Doubt.” Wednesday’s second episode of the Laverne Cox legal drama dropped 25 percent in TV ratings from last week’s poor premiere. That decline can be seen in both the key 18-49 demographic and among total viewers.
As such, CBS relinquished the evening’s regular overall audience win to NBC. ABC’s sitcoms carried the Disney broadcaster to the top slot among adults 18-49.
ABC was first in ratings with a 1.5 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted demo, »

‘Legion': What Does the Story of the Woodcutter and the Crane Mean?
(Some light spoilers ahead for the Feb. 22 episode of the FX original series “Legion.”) “Legion” opens with something of a strange moment in its third episode. It finds Melanie Bird (Jean Smart) talking to her robotic coffeemaker. While she’s waiting for the machine to finish her brew, it offers to tell her “the story of the poor woodcutter and his wife.” Dr. Bird listens to the tale more than once. The moment is important for a couple of reasons. First, it gives viewers some insight into Dr. Bird as she pours out her coffee so she has an excuse to. »

Superstore Review: The “Wellness Fair” Doesn’t Go “Well” For Everyone
I will admit that this Superstore episode didn’t start out so great. It was a slightly funny story about Amy playing hooky, that turned into her meddling in other people’s lives and Glenn becoming a petty child. Neither suited the two characters well. But, as great shows are wont to do, they totally turned it around by the end of the episode. I was both impressed and stunned and the remarkable turnaround in less than 30 minutes, but it’s the mark of a truly great show. This week on Superstore: Amy pretends to be sick to go to the movies, and accidentally discovers Jeff

The Cast of This is Us Apologizes for Making You Cry Every Episode
In the history of network television there might not be a show that makes people cry as much as This is Us does. Sure there are shows that contain episodes that bring you to tears but This is Us does it every single episode. Without question you know going into each show that you’re going to cry at some point. It’s gotten so ridiculous that even one of the stars of the show, Milo Ventimiglia, takes to social media to warn fans that a particular episode might not be easy to handle. While crying is sad and it sucks to

Powerless Season 1 Episode 4 Review: Emily Dates a Henchman
Just when I thought this show might fail, it charms me to think otherwise. “Emily Dates a Henchman” was a fun and cute episode. Maybe cute wasn’t the adjective the writers or actors were hoping for, but it feels appropriate. Teddy, Ron, and Van go Batman hunting after finding a leftover batarang. I loved this subplot. Tudyk can make anything fun, even a sideswipe of a car mirror from Batman as he saves a bus full of orphans. Ron leaves the batarang with cookies and milk, and he and Teddy practice acting cool around Batman. This was just a fun

Check Out Contra in the Real World on its 30th Anniversary
Just about anyone who owned an Nes is familiar with the game Contra. It’s a classic. From the amazing unlimited lives code (up down up down..you know the rest) to the music to the sick weapons you got to use, in the pantheon of greatest games of the Nintendo Entertainment System, most people would put it in the top ten. The series just celebrated its 30th anniversary, as the arcade version began appearing in arcades in late February, 1987. Though most people are much more familiar with the home version and hold a special place for it in their hearts,

After a full season of whodunnit, “How to Get Away With Murder” finally revealed #WhoKilledWes? And trust us, you’ll never guess it…
The two-hour finale started by clearing up why Connor (Jack Falahee) was giving Wes (Alfred Enoch) CPR the night of the house fire. Flashbacks revealed that Connor went to the house because Annalise (Viola Davis) called him over. When he arrived, Connor spotted an unconscious Wes on the floor of the basement and tried to give him CPR, but ended up pushing too hard on his chest and cracked one of his ribs.
All of this time, Connor wasn’t sure if the cracked rib is what ended up killing Wes, and he kept his whereabouts a secret because he didn’t trust that Annalise or the rest »
