Six hit shows won’t return until 2018

Six very popular genre shows are sitting out 2017.

Six hit shows won't return until 2018

And that’s rather unusual. Often, shows are like sharks — they keep moving forward or die, producing new content every year lest their talent deals lapse. Plus networks love consistency, where a known show reliably fills a certain slot. But for these six titles, we’re not getting any new episodes until 2018, and all for different reasons:

FX’s Atlanta. The acclaimed freshman drama delivered strong ratings plus picked up two Golden Globe awards this week (for best comedy and best actor for creator Donald Glover). But in a way Atlanta was a victim of its own success. After the show premiered, Glover was cast as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo stand-alone Star Wars movie, which started production this month. Usually, actors are forbidden from taking on any commitments which interfere with their show’s production schedule but FX must have agreed to accommodate Glover’s huge opportunity (wisely too, as appearing in a Star Wars film will only help bring more attention to Atlanta). “It’s an amazing opportunity for him, we try to be as accommodating to the talent as we can,” said FX executive Eric Schrier.

HBO’s Westworld. The breakout sci-fi drama took a couple years to make it to air, so it’s perhaps not surprising it will take awhile for another round. The densely plotted, special-effects-filled series is labor intensive, and showrunner Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy want to have all 10 episodes written before starting filming. So we’re going to have to wait awhile before we find out what “SW” is all about.

FX’s American Crime Story. Another huge freshman title from the fall, American Crime Story riveted with its tale of the O.J. Simpson murder trial, plus swept up some Emmy and Golden Globes. But FX’s follow-up in the anthology series, Katrina, has taken awhile to get underway as the writers have taken some time to figure out the story. “It’s taken us time to get material we’re happy with,” FX CEO John Landgraf said. Plus, FX has another limited series from executive producer Ryan Murphy, Feud: Bette and Joan, coming in March. But FX will more than make up for it in 2018, because there will be two installments of ACS, as the third edition, Versace, will debut within six months of Katrina.

Netflix’s Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones: Netflix now has so many Marvel series that they’re not all airing each year. So while 2017 will have plenty of Netflix-Marvel shows, the first three titles the streaming service launched — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage — are all benched this year. Instead, 2017 will have the limited series The Defenders (which includes characters from all the network’s Marvel shows) and the series premiere of Iron Fist. This year will likely also see the premiere of Daredevil spin-off The Punisher, though no date has been set.

And this doesn’t include certain zombie titles — shows that are off the air, yet not canceled, and are expected to come back at some point. They’re like the walking dead (just not including The Walking Dead). Examples include HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, which is working on a ninth season after five years off the air and could very well return this year; FX’s Louie, which has Louis C.K. taking a break for an indeterminant amount of time; Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, which has the comedian taking a protracted hiatus from making another season; And PBS’ Sherlock, which is airing this year, but isn’t expected next year (and may or may not ever come back).

Acer unveils Predator 21 X, a gaming laptop with curved display and dual GTX 1080s

 

Acer’s new Predator 21 X is the world’s first fierce curved display gaming laptop that weighs 17 pounds, or around 8 kilograms and measures 568 x 314.5 x 83.25mm (WxDxH). It comes with an amazing range of superlative specs in a not so entirely-portable package.

“With unlocked potential follows unrivaled evolution. A new era of curved has begun and the Predator 21 X leads the way,” notes the company.

The most obvious feature of the Predator 21 X is its monstrous 21-inch IPS curved display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,080 pixels and LED illumination. For gamers looking to spend hours in front of their laptop, the Predator 21 X is the perfect option.

It’s the world’s first laptop with a curved screen…not to mention two (2) GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs and a built-in mechanical keyboard.

It requires two (2) power supplies to run, and needs five (5) system fans and eight (8) heatpipes to stay cool. It holds up to 64GB of memory and five (5) storage drives at a time.

It will fetch a price north of $5,000 (£3,820 or AU£6,661).

[Andriod] Motorola Moto E

Motorola Moto E
Summary

The Moto E has its shortcomings, but they’re largely offset by the device’s affordable price. While the more powerful Moto G is likely the better bet for most shoppers, those looking to ditch their feature phones without breaking the bank will find plenty to like here.

Pros
  • Runs an almost untouched version of Android 4.4.2
  • The vivid screen is a pleasant surprise
  • Rounded design makes for comfy gripping
  • Incredibly affordable
Cons
  • Only 4GB of internal storage
  • Rear camera is mediocre at best
  • No flash or front-facing camera

[New Comics] All Star Batman #2 (@DCComics)

 

The first story in All-Star Batman #2 continues Batman’s race to “that house,” where he believes a cure for Harvey Dent exists. With art by John Romita Jr., Danny Miki, and Dean White, Batman takes a beating from a number of second- and third-tier villains, all trying to rescue Two-Face and become the next crime king of Gotham City as their reward. The Two-Face/Harvey Dent and Batman relationship has been explored many times in the past, but this is the first time that Snyder has focused on Dent. With his previous stories, Snyder has focused on what made the villainy of the Court of Owls, the Joker, the Riddler or Mister Bloom twisted reflections of Gotham City. Unlike those villains who fought Batman for the heart and soul of the city, Two-Face fights for his own survival, using villains, civilians and even Batman’s allies against him as his weapons. Two-Face is fighting for his life, and he’s more than willing to play dirty by showing the two-faced nature of everyone else.

One of the more satisfying aspects of All-Star Batman #2 is that it’s worth the $4.99 price tag. There’s a lot to unpack in this issue, and it feels like a lot of bang for the buck. We do feel like the constant betrayals of Batman may be Synder’s way of making this issue’s primary story seem more important than it actually is. We’re not fans of the old bait and switch, and frankly, we’re starting to think that’s where Synder is going with it. That does temper our impression of the book. But overall, it’s been very enjoyable experience so far.

The iPhone 7 Plus Is A Hit, And That’s Huge News For Apple

090716-apple-iphone-7-6879

Friday is launch day for the new iPhone 7, and Apple has some good news.

According to research firm Slice Intelligence, pre-orders for the iPhone in the first 48 hours it was available through Apple’s website showed the larger iPhone 7 Plus model outselling the smaller iPhone 7 for the first time. 55% of iPhone preorders that Slice tracked were for the larger Plus, up from 41% in 2015 and 35% in 2014.

The iPhone’s September launch has been known in the past for drawing lines of enthusiastic fans out the door, but this year’s response has been more muted as online pre-orders wiped out initial quantities of the iPhone 7 Plus and the new jet black color of the smaller iPhone 7.

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Black Toe 2016

After the official announces of the release of a Bred Air Jordan 1 later this month, it’s now the turn of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Black Toe to make his coming back.
It seems that the Air Jordan 1 fans will be blessed this Fall with the rumored return of the Black Toe Jordan 1 few months after the release of his Bred version on 3rd September. The Air Jordan 1 Black Toe has not been released since May 2013 and have never been part of the Jordan remastered programs what makes us think that this release will be very close as the OG one released in 1985.

We don’t have any official information about the come back of the Jordan 1 Black Toe but some source are according to a November release, so stay tuned ! – Sneakers Addict

The covers picture is a 2013 model.
