Vibe check! Paul Rudd wants you to wear a mask.

The Ant-Man actor teamed up with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to send a message to millennials amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. “Paul Rudd here, actor and certified young person,” the Marvel star, dressed in sweatpants and a New York baseball cap, said in the video message posted to Cuomo’s social media pages on Sept. 14. “A few days ago I was talking on the iPhone with my homie, Gov. Cuomo, and he’s just going off about how us millennials need to wear masks because, get this, apparently a lot of COVID is transmitted by us millennials. No cap.”

“So Cuomes asks me, he’s like, ‘Paul, you’ve got to help. What are you, like, 26?'” Rudd, 51, continued. “And I didn’t correct him. So, fam, let’s real-talk. Masks, they’re totally beast. So, slide that into your DMs and Twitch it.”

Are you done watching Utopia Season 1 and searching for shows like Utopia to fill the void until we know if it’s renewed? This list should help you!

Are you finished watching Utopia Season 1 on Amazon? Are you searching for something new to watch while waiting for Season 2? It’s hard to find shows like Utopia because it’s such a unique series. Aside from the original British show, there aren’t many others like it.

From Mr. Robot to 12 Monkeys, here are six shows like Utopia.

That said, I did my best to find television shows that share similar traits. Some shows are similar storywise, while others share a similar tone. As we do not know if Amazon will renew Utopia, hopefully, this list will help to keep you busy in the meantime.

7. Shows like Utopia: The Third Day

The Third Day is the newest series on this list. It only premiered on HBO earlier this month. But it shares an essential similarity with the original U.K. Utopia — its creator, Dennis Kelly. Kelly concocted a twisty, Wicker Man meets Midsommar story starring Jude Law and Naomie Harris for HBO.

Split into three distinct parts, The Third Day is about a mysterious island and the impact it has on visiting outsiders. In the first part, “Summer,” Sam (Law) must contend with a group of islanders who are willing to do whatever it takes to uphold their traditions.

For the “Autumn” portion of the production, audiences will get to see a one-off, twelve-hour live event on the island. It figures the same man who conceived Utopia would find another way to impress people with a strange and delightful idea. Producers describe the segment, which will consist of a single continuous take, as a “major immersive theater event.”

Finally, in the final episodes of the series, “Winter,” Harris will play a strong-willed outsider named Helen, whose arrival might decide the island’s fate.

The Third Day is streaming on HBO Max.

Doctor Who’s “timey-wimey” catchphrase didn’t come from the Doctor

Published

By

The Tenth Doctor was the first to utter the phrase “timey-wimey” to describe time travel, but where did HE hear it from? Let’s pull back the curtain, Doctor Who fans:

Doctor Who is filled with catchphrases, from “Allons-y” to “Geronimo.” One of the most memorable is “timey-wimey,” a phrase the Doctor uses the explain the absurd nature of time travel. Fans first heard the phrase during David Tennant’s run as the Tenth Doctor, in the classic episode “Blink”:

So that’s where we first heard it, but where did the Doctor first hear it?

The answer comes in Titan Comics’ miniseries about the Third Doctor, which dates back to September of 2016. Here, we learn that the Third Doctor (played by Jon Pertwee in the show) first heard the phrase from his companion Jo Grant. As she says it, the Doctor cuts her off and calls the phrase “ridiculous,” but clearly it stuck with him.

This is the beauty of a multi-decade franchise like Doctor Who; there’s so much history that it can always find new reveals somewhere, bending the series’ history back on itself until it stumbles across a new connection. We daresay there’s almost a “timey-wimey” quality to this revelation.

The Wall Renewed for Season 4 at NBC

Published

By

NBC is sticking to The Wall: The game show has been renewed for a fourth season, TVLine has learned.

Season 4 of The Wall will span 20 episodes, and Chris Hardwick will once again be back as host.

Airing quite intermittently since mid-March (including a three-month gap between its two most recent episodes), The Wall Season 3 has averaged 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.52 demo rating in Live+Same Day numbers.

Executive-produced by NBA star LeBron James and Andrew Glassman (Battle of the Network Stars), The Wall finds contestants attempting to win millions of dollars by dropping balls down the titular game board. Teams of two players must answer questions correctly, then, ideally, place their balls in high-value spots on the wall (while red balls dropped on the board subtract from their prize total).

The Wall still has three episodes left in its third season. Those will air on Thursday, Oct. 1; Wednesday, Oct. 21; and Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 8/7c.

The show’s Season 4 pickup has been added to our 2020 Renewal Scorecard. NBC also just debuted its Jane Lynch-hosted Weakest Link reboot (grade the premiere here), while America’s Got Talent — which has yet to be renewed for Season 16 — just wrapped its 15th cycle, with winner Brandon Leake, earlier this month.
