* After coming up with a superb coda to the Arrested Development series, Netflix has rescued The Killing from oblivion. The Killing will receive a final season on Netflix consisting of six episodes. While I like the ten to thirteen episode model, someone realized that The Killing could benefit from streamlining so those meandering subplots have likely been paired away. Both Joel Kinnamon and Mireille Enos could use the boost as Joel Kinnamon starred in the pointless Robocop reboot and Mireille Enos joined an ensemble cast in the horrendous Sabotage.
So what series to rescue next Netflix? No, obviously they can’t have Firefly – Nathan Fillion is doing just fine on Castle and Joss Whedon has The Avengers 2.
* Now that all of the new theaters are finally having the soda fountain outside of concessions (YAY!), the latest trend seems to be improved theater seating. Check out these fully extendable lounges in the new AMC set up (above).
The loungers above here are Carolina Cinemas new ones – listed for the Charlotte location but one can hope for my Asheville one. I like their current couches and footstools but my wife finds them uncomfortable.
