Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness — you GUYS! Did you miss me? Didja didja didja? It’s been a minute since we’ve had a TV-Cap ’round these here parts, but fear not: it is 2015 and we have returned. But since we care (and don’t want to overwhelm you/news items were slim over the break), we’re going to ease you into this one all slow-like. With teeny tiny tidbits from American Horror Story: Freak Show, a promo from Margaret Cho’s new late-night TLC talk show, All About Sex (really), and delicious details from everyone’s favorite new Marvel thing, Agent Carter.
So let’s dig in and hold on tight, shall we? IT’S a brand new year out there, world, and EVERYTHING IS SO EXCITING, isn’t it?!
Neil Patrick Harris Gets Tricky on Freak Show: Are you still engrossed in the freaky world of this season’s American Horror Story? (If so, good for you! You’re a more committed human than this particular writer.) Well then you’re sure to want to feast on these latest photos of Chester — otherwise known as Neil Patrick Harris, a.k.a the new owner of Elsa’s not-so-beloved freak show. Not to go out on a total limb here (har har har), but we’re betting that things are going to get mighty bloody with his new appearance (because of course they are, this is a Ryan Murphy show). There’s just one below here, click on the link to see more ——> [TVLine]
More Agent Carter! More Agent Carter!: We’ve been absolutely bereft since the realization that we didn’t receive the Agent Carter screeners sent out to our colleagues last month (sniff sniff sniff ABC! C’MON!). But that doesn’t mean we’re going to stop champing at the bit for each and every single detail we can find out ahead of its January 6th premiere. I mean look at this quote from Hayley Atwell — “She’s having to forge her own path and find a way of still being active and carrying on Cap’s work in this environment where she’s just being asked to get the lunch orders and make the coffees and answer the phones for the guys.” Feminist icon and female-fronted Marvel series! WE ARE SO READY FOR THIS, ABC. So. EFFING. READY. You can read the whole interview riiiiiight there ——> [IGN]
Margaret Cho is All About Sex: Margaret Cho has a new show coming out and it’s TLC’s attempt at both getting in on the late night talk show game AND talking about everything sexual. Premiering Saturday, January 10th at 11PM on TLC, All About Sex promises to be dirty so, you know, that’s a thing! [The Wrap]
Judd Apatow’s Simpsons: It’s coming you guys, it’s coming! He wrote it 25 years ago but it’s airing on January 11th. How’s that for patience, eh? [Nerdist]
TGIT Withdrawl: It’s real, you guys.
So — how many people do we think Chester is going to kill on AHS? Leave your guesses in the comments.
