Hard Sun, episode 2 review: this show is ludicrous… yet still entertaining

Meanwhile, Hicks raced to catch a spree killer obsessed with the impending end-of-days. His murders were surprisingly gory, with slit throats and Jackson Pollock-esque blood spatter. I hope any young football fans staying up late for Match of the Day didn’t spill their cocoa in shock.

Former model Deyn, all haunted intensity and fierce physicality, stole the show from Sturgess, whose Mockney accent and SUDDEN bursts of SHOUTING hardly added nuance to his performance. He seemed to be impersonating Idris Elba, star of Hard Sun creator Neil Cross’s other series Luther, without the charisma to quite carry it off.

All the biggest moments from ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 episode 2

Game of Thrones s7 e2Helen Sloan/HBO

Warning: Huge (very huge) spoilers for “Game of Thrones” season seven, episode two. If you aren’t caught up on the series, read at your own risk. 

After what felt like the longest seven days in history, season two episode seven of “Game of Thrones,” titled “Stormborn,” finally came on TV.

The majority of this episode felt similar to the season premiere: catching up with characters, and seeing the story mechanics that will bring everyone closer together as the series moves toward the end. But then it ended with an unexpected battle, as Euron attacked his niece’s fleet at sea. 

Storms and trust (or lack thereof) were big themes this week. No one seems to trust anyone, which is a pretty smart way to live in Westeros. But it’s also frustrating for the audience, because we want some of these

Carmichael Show mass shooting episode will now air June 28

NBC has finally reset the date for an episode of The Carmichael Show that deals with the aftermath of a mass shooting, EW has confirmed.

“Shoot-Up-Able” was slated to air June 14, but the network opted at the last minute to pull it from the schedule after one shooting at a Republican Congressional baseball team practice in Virginia left four people injured and another at a UPS facility in California left three people dead and two more wounded.

The Carmichael Show is a critic-friendly family comedy that delves into topics such as gun control and sexual assault, and this episode focuses on the emotional fallout of a deadly mall shooting that Jerrod (Jerrod Carmichael) witnessed. “The family tries to get Jerrod to talk about his feelings about it,” Carmichael told EW last month. It did not depict the actual shooting.

NBC Reschedules ‘Carmichael Show’ Mass Shooting Episode

The Carmichael Show‘s mass shooting episode is back on the books.

NBC has rescheduled the half-hour installment, titled “Shoot-up-able,” for June 28. The news comes a week and a half after the episode was pulled in the wake of the congressional baseball practice mass shooting, and after a second mass shooting, which left four dead, occurred in San Francisco. Both happened the same day that “Shoot-up-able” was set to debut.

The episode follows Carmichael’s character after he survives a mass shooting. Although he fights against being coddled by his family and being labeled a victim, things are made harder when he’s forced to tell a police officer exactly what he saw.

Instead, NBC aired another new episode of the third-year sitcom, titled “Lesbian Wedding.” Hours before NBC officially pulled it, co-creator and star Jerrod Carmichael criticized the network’s hesitancy in airing the episode when he filmed an appearance on Chelsea Handler’s

It’s ‘Just Criminal’: Jerrod Carmichael Upset Over NBC Pulling Mass Shooting Episode of His Show

Jerrod Carmichael expressed his frustrations over NBC’s decision to pull an episode of The Carmichael Show from the air in the wake of the GOP and the San Francisco shootings that occurred this week.

If you aren’t familiar with The Carmichael Show, it’s a multi-camera family sitcom in the middle of its third season that often tackles taboo subjects in the spirit of All in the Family. The episode that was supposed to air Wednesday night, just hours after a political terrorist shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and four others, focused on the main character (played by Carmichael) surviving a mass shooting.

Carmichael, who is also the executive producer of the show, sat down with Chelsea Handler on Wednesday and discussed how he felt about it all.

“I thought that tonight’s episode would have an opportunity to talk about these tragedies in a meaningful way,” he said.

Carmichael elaborated, “A lot of

Jerrod Carmichael Criticizes NBC for Pulling ‘Carmichael Show’ Mass-Shooting Episode

Jerrod Carmichael wants to have a discussion about the sensitivity of gun violence.

On an episode of Netflix’s “Chelsea,” Carmichael criticized NBC for pulling an episode of “The Carmichael Show” because it involved a mass shooting.

It’s common for networks to not air episodes of shows that reflect real-life incidents like a shooting or plane crash if they are scheduled to air within a few days of the tragedy. The episode would have been broadcast on Wednesday night — the same day that Steve Scalise, the majority whip of the House of Representatives, was shot, along with three others, by a lone gunman in Alexandria, Va., while practicing for a congressional baseball game.

Why the Pulled Mass Shooting Episode of ‘The Carmichael Show’ Is Still Vital

Early on in its first season, The Carmichael Show quickly garnered a reputation for focusing episodes on “hot-button” issues. It’s a sitcom in the vein of Norman Lear: finding an important and much-debated topic and then distilling it down to 22-minute sitcom fare, all while in front of a roaring studio audience. Through gallows humor, The Carmichael Show can find laughs in everything from police brutality to Bill Cosby. The episodes aren’t really meant to provide answers, but to pose questions that allow the characters—and by extension, the viewers—to bring up multiple viewpoints. Some we agree with, some we don’t. You’re supposed to be entertained for the duration of the show, and you’re supposed to spend some time thinking about it afterward.

Now in its third season, The Carmichael Show has kept this up: it covered rape in its season premiere and
