Broad city watch series
Verne Gay Newsday Published 11:12 p.m. UTC Jul 25, 2018 August is around the corner, and while the world may seem to slow down — the dog days, and all that — TV marches on. Here are seven shows to look for next month: Aug. 3 “Animals” (HBO, 11:30 p.m.) And just like that, this oddball animated series about the anthropomorphic misdeeds of New York City urban wildlife (from bed bugs to pigeons) is back for a third season. The co-creators are Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano. What to expect in the third? The series visits a “humanless, post-apocalyptic Big Apple” — which naturally means talking cockroaches. Aug. 6 “Better Call Saul” (AMC, 9 p.m.) One of the treasures of the small screen returns with an episode called “Smoke” — quite possibly a reference to the fire that consumed the house of Jimmy’s (Bob Odenkirk) brother, Chuck (Michael McKean)? Yes, quite possibly. The logline is as follows: … [Read more...] about 8 new and returning shows to watch in August

The streaming service has turned binge-watching into a way of life. It has eliminated the time-consuming practice of forcing TV producers to make pilots. It designs some of its series by using its extensive statistics on audience behavior. It doesn’t make its shows’ ratings public. And it releases a ton of titles, some 1,000 this year, including both the original shows it makes and those it acquires and distributes. There are so many shows on Netflix, it sometimes feels like you’re picking through a Filene’s Basement bin to find what you want, all while that ping-pong sound bounces around the room. Good shows get buried in the heap, while bad ones show up on your screen every time you enter the service’s home base. Here, then, is a selection of some of the … [Read more...] about What to watch on Netflix June 2018

With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. THE BIG IDEA: A panel of three judges, each appointed by a Republican president to the federal appeals court in Chicago, ruled unanimously on Thursday against President Trump’s effort to withhold money from “sanctuary cities.” The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit upheld a nationwide injunction that blocks the Justice Department from using “the sword of federal funding to conscript state and local authorities to aid in federal civil immigration enforcement.” Trump’s latest courtroom defeat offers yet another civics lesson about checks and balances for the first president in American history who lacks any prior governing or military experience. Unlike congressional Republicans who have by and large kowtowed and capitulated to Trumpism, despite private uneasiness and grumbling in many cases, Republican-appointed judges are free not to care about the wrath of the president or blowback from his loyalists. … [Read more...] about The Daily 202: Republican judges warn of ‘tyranny’ as they block Trump on ‘sanctuary cities’
