Tom Hardy Stars In The First Trailer For Taboo

I am a very dangerous man to know.

Tom Hardy goes into the wild and comes back to an even wilder society, now a changed man. Set in 1814, Taboo follows James Keziah Delaney, a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed. Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself.

But his father’s legacy is a poisoned chalice, and with enemies lurking in every dark corner, James must navigate increasingly complex territories to avoid his own death sentence. Encircled by conspiracy, murder, and betrayal, a dark family mystery unfolds in a combustible tale of love and treachery.

This is the first trailer for the upcoming FX miniseries Taboo.

TV News Roundup: Sexy Pirates, Heroes, Reaper and more!

Gather round it’s time once again to delve into the latest TV news that we deem fit to print!

Michael Bay + TV= Sexy Pirates

The man behind the Transformers movies is producing a series for Starz and they’ve gone and released a trailer. If you have a thing for men in dirty, salt water stained clothing half naked and women in period garb, also half naked… then this is the show for you!

Created by Jonathan Steinberg and Robert Levine, who worked together on both Human Target and Jericho, Black Sails tells the story of Captain Flint (Toby Stephens– Prince John in BBC’s Robin Hood) and his crew, including the infamous John Silver (Luke Arnold) twenty years before the time of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.

Given that Spartacus is ending this year, audiences will be looking for another show with sex, action, and accents to fill the void and it looks like Black Sails is more than willing to step in.

I’ll be watching if for no other reasons than I have a love for tall ships and of course that smirk!

Sexy Pirates, TV news

 Heroes coming to an XBox near you?

Way back in December of 2011, it was announced that Microsoft was seriously looking at branching out into original programming. Now that XBox Live has become a legit media hub (I’m currently watching Netflix’s Hemlock Grove on my XBox), it makes sense that they would want to make a go at their own shows. Given the popularity of XBox and Microsoft’s promising 1st quarter financials, this seems like a good time to make that move.

You know what’s not a good idea? Having that first jump into the “original programming” water being actually the revival of a show that had moments of brilliance but that was quickly and thoroughly drowned out by mediocrity.

That right folks, MSN is rumored to be considering retooling the NBC sci-fi drama, Heroes. They obviously aren’t bringing back the original cast but instead are relaunching it with a brand new cast while the old-schoolers will be making cameo appearances. I think we all know this is going to be so awesome and cool and super duper exciting.

One can only hope that MSN has more ideas up their sleeves and this is just a small part of their plan going forward.

Reaper is returning to your TV!!

Now this is a show MSN should have jumped on and “brought back”. Too bad for them, FEARnet got it first. Starting in June, FEARnet is set to air all two seasons of the fan favorite. In addition, they will be putting together a half hour reunion special. Deadline has already confirmed that Sam (Bret Harrison), Sock (Tyler Labine), and The Devil (Ray Wise) are set to appear. I’ll admit that I hadn’t heard of FEARnet before this, but they are on a number of cable providers, sorry satellites, no Reaper for you! As for everyone else, enjoy a show that we here at Grizzly Bomb surely believe was Gone Too Soon.

Too much Saul Goodman? No such thing.

NBC might have passed on the Dwight Schrute centered spin-off of The Office but AMC is looking at the soon ending Breaking Bad and they see potential in a spin-off starring Bob Odenkirk’s loveable lawyer, Saul Goodman. Of course there is potential! While Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston are obviously the stars as the meth making duo but Goodman is a scene stealer by every definition of the phrase.

Of course how this would work is certainly a good question. Saul is usually a moment of comic relief in tense moments so how would his character carry a show on his own? As this idea is just in its infancy, I’m sure there will be plenty more questions to be asked in the coming months. It’s only a matter of time before people start bringing up Vince Gilligan’s failed X-Files spin-off The Lone Gunmen.

The Bridge succeeds in confusing us all.

Seriously. If you’ve seen FX at all recently you know what I’m talking about. These four promos that don’t do much to explain what the show is about.

So that’s The Bridge. I’m sure those four bits answered all your questions about the crime drama. Oh you didn’t know it was a crime drama? Well it is. Based on a Scandanavian show, that is also being redone in Europe as The Tunnel and between England and France, The Bridge is about a serial killer who is being hunted down by detectives both in the US and Mexico.

Demián Bichir plays the Mexican detective and Diane Kruger his American counterpart. At first blush, it sounds a bit like The Killing with maybe a bit of Twin Peaks (mainly due to the odd promos) mixed in. That could be completely off base, I’ll just have to wait until July to see if I’m right.

So there you have it, the top news as we see it in TV today! If you think we’ve missed a story, by all means let us know down in the comments or if you’re feeling downright neighborly, it’s perfectly all right to just say hello. Until next time!

‘Archer’ Season 4 Clips to Help You Survive the Next Few Weeks

If I have to educate people on how awesome Archer is and that it’s one of the best (can I add underrated?) television shows on right now, then the world is lost to me. However, if you are a loyal reader to this site, you should know our love for Archer. If you’re not a loyal reader, then you really should be because we have great stuff and writers on this site that you’re missing out on. Anyways, we have a trailer plus several clips to help you get by through the day. So I’ll sit back and let you watch them because you really don’t need me to ramble on about how this show needs to get some sort of nomination from the Emmys or Golden Globes for writing alone. Just brilliant I say.

Added bonus before the clips, a media day thing that the ArcherFX Channel on YouTube threw in:

Archer Season 4 premieres Thursday January 17th, 2013 on FX at 10pm.

‘American Horror Story’ Renewed for 3rd Season! Who Will Return?

Surprise, surprise.  American Horror Story is killing it once again, and fans are screaming for more.  Well, we’re all in luck.  Only half way through their second season, and it has been confirmed that AHS will return for a third.  So where will the series go from here, and who will return?

Emmy winner Jessica Lange is sure to return.  In season one, she played the psycho neighbor who ultimately becomes the care taker of Satan’s spawn.  Most recently, she has been a tormented nun and has turned in an Emmy worthy performance. I am sure fans are stricken with curiosity over what Murphy and Falchuk have planned for her in season three.  What about other fan favorites such as Zachary Quinto?

When asked if he would return for season 3 in an interview with Collider, his answer was a bit more ambiguous.

[quote]I just read today that the show got picked up for a third installment, so that’s very exciting.  I’m so glad it’s doing well.  People are responding to it, and FX has been so supportive and innovative with the stuff that they’re doing, so it’s great to be a part of it.  I haven’t had any conversations with Ryan [Murphy] about what he’s thinking for the third season, so I have no idea.  I love my job and I love the people that I do it with, and I always want that to be the case.  I know he has plans.  If they involve me, I’m sure I’ll get a call, at some point.  But, I don’t know anything about it.  I’m just focused on getting through the rest of this season and moving on to the next phase of stuff that I have lined up.[/quote]

Quinto was given the opportunity to join season one because shooting for Star Trek got pushed back.  With his growing popularity, what will take precedence if Murphy does make the call to bring him on board for season three?  Only time will tell.  Ultimately, we will all find out when the 13 episode third season begins next fall.

With a slew of interesting actors and constantly evolving plot points, I am sure things will work out just fine.  I do not see the series growing stale any time soon.  At this point, we can all just sit back and speculate where the anthology will go next.  I would love to see something in the wild west or turn of the 19th century.  There is a lot of folklore and mystery that could be involved with that particular timeframe.  With the changing timeframes, and locations from season to season, AHS is becoming a far more demented variation of my personal favorite, The Twilight Zone.
