You might be asking, how did this kid find himself holding his breath and hiding under that car? And if you did, the only answer I'd have to give is a heaping of stupidity washed over with a lightly baked sauce of bad ideas. So let me rewind and take you back to the beginning, or what I now call, the cradle of folly, or as some would say metal shop.
Directing is more than just yelling "action!" or "cut!" There are some small yet important aspects of being a director that are usually overlooked and this can spell disaster for your film set if you make this mistake.
Whenever a Doctor says they are handing over the key to the Tardis and their sonic screwdriver as the Timelord a debate rages on who is going to be the next 'Doctor Who'. Below is a rundown of 13 of our picks for the titular Timelord (in no order of preference.
DC Comics have been represented in live action form on television since Adventures of Superman aired in 1952. There are currently 9 shows airing that are based on DC Comics, while in the 90s there were 5. If you look at a timeline of DCTV shows, you'll notice a gap between 1997, when Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman ended, and 2012, when Arrow began. During that 15 year period, only 3 DCTV shows aired: Birds of Prey, Human Target, and Smallville. Smallville was an iconic show that kept audiences (mostly) entertained for 10 seasons. Because Smallville was such a success, people rarely remember Birds of Prey or Human Target. Human Target only lasted 2 seasons but I truly believe if it aired today, and not on FOX, it would be a hit.

Late night talk shows have been an American staple since Steve Allen first hosted The Tonight Show in 1954. That show has been airing on NBC ever since, and it established a formula that has been emulated by countless other talk shows. Johnny Carson was the gold standard for many. His everyman persona endeared him to the nation and watching his show before going to sleep became a nightly ritual. But with so many talk shows on so many channels these days, have they lost a bit of their personal charm?In many ways, we can't talk about Jimmy Fallon the same way people talked about Johnny Carson in the sixties. Not only are the chances of late night viewers watching the same talk show host at 5-to-1 odds, but many people don't watch talk shows on TV from beginning to end anymore. Most people go to streaming sites like Youtube to handpick the clips they care about. Fallon and James Corden are the viral kings of late night (probably no coincidence that they are the most friendly and game-oriented late night hosts) and as a result, they are the most popular. These days the barometer for measuring success can be pinpointed by whichever video gets the most hits.
