Why We Need to See Slamball Come Back
I'm probably in the minority as someone who was an avid Slamball viewer. Most people who have heard of Slamball think of it as only basketball with a trampoline, but it's much more than that. Slamball emphasizes speed, precision, and power into one insanely entertaining 20-minute event. While the sport couldn't capitalize on its initial popularity in the early 2000s, it would thrive if it was brought back today.
5 Classic Game Shows That Need to Return
Game shows are making a comeback. We know that we're currently living in the era of reboots and while we continue to have the classic staples of Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, shows like Match Game, Cash Cab, and Double Dare have returned with new episodes. With apps like HQ Trivia getting over a million viewers a night, there's clearly a demand for game shows. If this trend continues, networks will look for more classic game shows to reboot. Here are the five best game shows that need to return.
How Kuri Came to Be
Eli had been in depressed for days. His wife wanted to have a child more than anything, but obviously, it could never happen. It didn't matter how many times Eli explained to his wife that it was impossible for them to have a child, she pestered him incessantly to find a solution.
'iZombie' Writer Bob Dearden on What It's Like to Write for the Hit Show and What We Can Expect From Season 4
Jason Schwartz: First things first, how did you get started writing for iZombie? Bob Dearden: Well, if you want to go back to before the beginning, I had a very different first career as a silviculture supervisor in the Canadian forest industry. I’d had a desire to go to film school after my undergrad studies, but had back-burnered that idea more and more as I got deeper into the forestry job. Eventually, I got to a point where I knew if I didn’t give something else a shot, it was going to be forestry for life. Which would’ve been fine, but I still had that lingering dream to work in film or TV, and wanted to take a crack at it. So I went back to school, enrolling in the MFA Screenwriting program at UT Austin.
The Forgotten Characters of 'Chicago Fire'
Chicago Fire is in the middle of its sixth season and it's showing no signs of slowing down. The show follows the lives of the firefighters and paramedics at Firehouse 51. The majority of the main cast has remained the same throughout the show's run, however, some key members have left the show. While some characters get mentioned again after their departures, others are almost completely forgotten. Here's a look back at those characters that left 51.
Why The Valleyfolk Will Be the Biggest Thing on YouTube in 2018
It's often hard for a new channel to stick out on YouTube. YouTube's algorithm tends to cater to their bigger channels, so it's difficult for a new up and coming channel to find their footing. The Valleyfolk managed to buck that trend in a big way. Within the first 24 hours of their new channel, The Valleyfolk have over ninety-three thousand subscribers, made it to #4 on YouTube's trending page, and have almost 3,500 backers on their Patreon. So what is this channel and how did it become so successful so quickly?
The Improbable NFL Blackout Game (Not the One You're Thinking Of)
Every head coach remembers their first career win. Whether it's a blow out or a nail bitter; there's something special about getting that first W. However, no one's first win was as remarkable as Jason Garrett's. In order to understand the magnitude of that first game, we must first examine the circumstances that lead up to that game. On November 8, 2010, Wade Phillips was fired after the Cowboys started 1–7 and Jason Garrett was named interim head coach. 2010 was a rough year for Dallas, they had high hopes entering that season. The year before, Romo got his first playoff win, and after drafting rookie Dez Bryant, some people had the Cowboys on their Super Bowl radar. Sadly the expectations came crashing down when Tony Romo broke his collarbone against the New York Giants in Week 7.
The Easter Eggs, Cameos, and Crossovers That Connect These 24 Nickelodeon Shows
After spending a majority of the past 24 years watching Nickelodeon, I had a thought. Anyone who watched enough Nick noticed that characters cross over into other Nick shows. Whether it was a full blown crossover, like The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour, or just a quick cameo, Nick wasn't shy about sharing characters. So I was wondering, how many of these shows can be connected together? Since I'm an unproductive member of society, I decided to graph out how these shows connect with each other. This is what I came up with.
