TV on Tap: “Arrested Development” Getting A Fifth Season, “Looking” Movie Will Film in September And Lessons From “Better Call Saul”

News

Frankie J Alvarez tells Vulture that the Looking movie will start filming in September, so you can start feeling more secure Looking won’t have the disappointing ending that Deadwood got.

While Netflix hasn’t confirmed it, Arrested Development producer Brian Grazer said there’s a 17-episode fifth season coming up. I don’t know if I’m more excited to see more Bluths or to find out what kind of amazing guest roles a new season of Arrested Development will bring.

The Washington Post’s guide to every death on Game of Thrones is pretty detailed including a tally of the deadliest locations and the characters with the largest kill counts.

The 7 lessons Better Call Saul can teach AMC’s next prequel/spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead. Can we also apply them to why Caprica never quite touched the greatness of Battlestar Galatica?

When The Price is Right model Manuela Arbelaez accidentally revealed the price of a car, she called it “biggest mistake ever in game show history” but there are at least five episodes where the Price Is Right’s games fail memorably, including one episode where the show had two games set up for failure.

I like the idea of Vulture’s Meyers-Briggs style test for TV tastes. After taking the test (I got a Drama/Episodic/Cult/Highbrow) I felt it needed a little bit of fine tuning.
