TV OT: Joe Goldberg v. Dexter Morgan: Sizing up TV's serial killer kings. Plus, a critic's conundrum

A strike is looming but the work on TV OT continues. Here's this week's column:

Adele's best songs for every mood

We know it seems like most of Adele's music is about heartbreak, but that's just because she does it so well.

'Succession' returns with more sinister power struggles

Check out killer content in October: Power struggles rock the Logan family in season three of "Succession," stalker Joe Goldberg is a new dad in "You," Jamie Lee Curtis returns in "Halloween Kills," and more.

Randy Bachman's treasured Gretsch guitar was stolen 45 years ago. An internet sleuth helped find it

Decades after it was stolen, Canadian rock star Randy Bachman says he's finally found the rare guitar he used to write hits like "American Woman" and "Taking Care of Business" after an internet sleuth tracked it down in Japan.

Lance Bass and husband Michael Turchin welcome twins

Lance Bass is now a dad to twins.

'Introducing, Selma Blair' turns her MS diagnosis into a deeply personal documentary

Coming not long after the splendid Val Kilmer documentary, "Introducing, Selma Blair" provides more deeply personal access to an actor in the throes of a health crisis, following her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 2018. In this case, the focus is less on her career than her struggles and treatment, with the goal of assisting others facing similar challenges.

'Stop it': CNN reporter dismisses talk about Adele's weight

Adele's new single has dropped, but people are still talking about her weight loss more than her music. This week on "Pop Off," CNN entertainment reporter Lisa Respers France and her best friend Audrey Irvine examine our obsession with celebrities' bodies. Subscribe to Lisa's "Pop Life Chronicles" newsletter here.

'I Know What You Did Last Summer' and 'Day of the Dead' stretch movie horror into series

For anyone who watched "I Know What You Did Last Summer" or "Night of the Living Dead" and thought, "I wish that movie was four times longer," Amazon and Syfy have series for you, because it's that time of year for scary shows, and as things currently stand in TV/streaming, anything worth doing is worth overdoing.

'The Last Duel' doesn't disappoint, but the lengthy buildup to it does

"The Last Duel" of the title doesn't disappoint in director Ridley Scott's latest period epic, but the protracted buildup to it somewhat does. A "Rashomon"-like tale that tells its story from different perspectives, this fact-based adaptation of Eric Jager's book is muddy, bloody and grim but too drawn out in filtering 14th-century feudal norms through a modern prism.

'Halloween Kills' is a strange title for a franchise that just won't die

"Halloween Kills" is a strange name for a 43-year-old franchise that positively refuses to die. Then again, this 12th film in the series -- a direct sequel to the 2018 reset "Halloween" -- is odd on various levels, starting with the wholly misguided attempt to weave a half-baked message into its bloody mayhem.

Lil Kim claps back at 50 Cent over viral video

Rap beefs are common, but this one came with an Irish tinge.

'It's not helpful': Jonah Hill asks fans not to comment on his body

Oscar-nominated actor Jonah Hill wants the world to know that his body is not an appropriate talking point.

Some old Mac Miller music is new again.

Dwayne Johnson meant what he said about Vin Diesel

Jamie Lee Curtis dressed as mom Janet Leigh in 'Psycho' for 'Halloween Kills' premiere

Jamie Lee Curtis honored her mother Janet Leigh at the recent "Halloween Kills" premiere by replicating Leigh's costume from her iconic role in "Psycho."

Gloria Estefan hopes to inspire change by tackling tough issues on 'Red Table Talk'

Gloria Estefan is getting candid in a whole new season of "Red Table Talk: The Estefans."

'CMT Artists of the Year' returned with an invitation-only crowd

CMT honored the year's biggest country music performers in an invitation-only ceremony from Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Wednesday.

Netflix head reiterates support for Dave Chappelle special in email to staff

Netflix head Ted Sarandos has reiterated his support for Dave Chappelle and the comic's controversial stand-up special, "The Closer" in an email to company staff.

'You' finds twisted new wrinkles with Love and marriage in the suburbs

Another salvage project by Netflix, "You" went from a Lifetime also-ran to a social-media sensation, with its twisted lead becoming a sort of latter-day "Dexter," heavily narrating his bizarre story. The third season continues to balance that delicate juggling act, with a wife, baby and life in suburbia merely adding to the chaos, and for the most part, macabre fun.

Jamie Costa's Robin Williams impersonation leaves fans clamoring for a whole film

Robin Williams' fans are very excited by actor Jamie Costa's impersonation of the late star.

Rolling Stones phase out popular hit 'Brown Sugar'

The Rolling Stones have retired their classic song "Brown Sugar," which begins with a slave narrative and sexualizes young Black women.

Paul McCartney says the Rolling Stones are 'a blues cover band'

in the latest installment of a friendly rivalry between two of the world's biggest music groups, Beatles legend Paul McCartney has dubbed the Rolling Stones "a blues cover band."

William Shatner can't escape 'Star Trek,' but his voyage has gone well beyond it

William Shatner chided me when I interviewed him in 1987. The actor wanted to keep the focus on his move into directing, politely objecting when I asked about his relationship with the "Star Trek" faithful after a "Saturday Night Live" skit the year before in which he famously told cast members playing trivia-obsessed fans to "get a life."

'Dopesick' gives Purdue Pharma and OxyContin a sweeping dramatic treatment

"Dopesick" is an engrossing eight-part series, exploring the opioid crisis from multiple angles, including the ground-level carnage inflicted by OxyContin addiction, Purdue Pharma's inner workings and the government personnel seeking to combat it.

'Squid Game' sets off a new game, trying to figure out why it took off on Netflix

"Squid Game" has set off its own Hollywood-centric game -- trying to explain how (or really, guess why) a South Korean drama that arrived with virtually no fanfare has become what Netflix is billing as possibly its "biggest show ever."

'Succession' doesn't miss a beat as its Murdochian family feud continues

Success hasn't spoiled "Succession," as the Emmy-winning drama returns with all its Shakespearean and Murdochian overtones intact, with a bruising father-son battle over its fictional media empire. Stripped of that, the HBO series remains enormously fun, filled with cringe-inducing moments and the kind of vicious insults that would make the writers of "Veep" blush.

Here are 7 movies to get you in the Halloween spirit

What better way to get in the spooky spirit than curl up and watch some scary flicks.

See what's streaming in October

A look at some of the series and films streaming on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, Hulu and more in September.

The best and worst of 007 as 'No Time to Die' marks Daniel Craig's exit

Some 007 math: 60 years, 25 movies (with a small asterisk) and six James Bonds. For a Cold War creation, Ian Fleming's suave spy has certainly gotten around, but despite different guises in the tuxedo and occasional scuba gear, when it comes to Bond ratings, there really shouldn't be much argument about who wore it best.

'The Wonder Years' shines in ABC's reboot of the coming-of-age dramedy

Early '90s TV is hitting the refresh button this fall, in the case of "The Wonder Years," delivering an impressive and ambitious ABC dramedy. Coming on the heels of Disney+'s "Doogie Howser, M.D." reboot, the two shows join the earlier "One Day at a Time" in proving it's possible to nostalgically recycle titles and still produce distinctive and captivating series.

Samsung Smartphone Shipments to Decline in 2015

It is probably safe to say that Samsung is going through a transition period, or is at least repositioning itself. The company streamlined its smartphone output this year and has seen profits increase as a result, recording financial growth for the first time in several quarters. However, that good news is tempered by the fact that Samsung is likely to see a decline in overall smartphone sales for the first time in years.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 coming to Europe in January?

We love the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, it is the best device the company makes and is pretty much a home run from top to bottom. However, when it launched the Note 5 came with a massive disappointment as it was not made available in Europe, and Samsung hasn't made any noise that the device will ever come to the Old Continent.

ZTE Reveals Lease-to-Own Plan for Buying Smartphones

With carriers in the United States slowly starting to turn away from the old model of contracted subsidized phones, it has opened a gap in the market for manufacturers to step into. Apple has done so with its iPhone Upgrade Program and now Chinese company has announced its own similar system.

HTC One A9 Coming with $690 Price Tag?

The HTC One A9 is going to be launched in one week's time and the more we hear about this smartphone the more worried we are. What was first leaked as a bleeding edge handset has since become (via benchmark results) a clear mid-ranger, which in itself is reasonable, even if we do expect more from HTC. The latest news regarding the cost of the One A9 means we are outright concerned about what HTC is playing at.

Xiaomi Mi 5 Definitely not coming Next Week

Xiaomi has scheduled a media event for October 19th, when the company will unveil a new smartphone. First reports suggested that the handset to be launched is the Xiaomi Mi 5 flagship, a handset that is actually a long time in coming. However, the wait will go on as the Mi 5 will not be launched next week at all and there are two reasons for that.

LG is the most Security Minded Android OEM

When we think of mobile security we think of BlackBerry's BB10 or at a push iOS, we rarely consider Android because of the numerous problems the platform has had. Forced to pick the most secure manufacturer on Android we would say Samsung with its robust KNOX security suite, which is pretty spiffing. However, a new research paper out of prestigious Cambridge University in the United Kingdom disagrees.

J.P. Morgan Ditching BlackBerry Handout Program for Employees

Rumors persistently abound that BlackBerry will stop making smartphones soon, but while that is unclear there are some people who will not be getting new handsets from the company. J.P. Morgan reports that its employees will no longer be handed free BlackBerry smartphone, starting in 2016 they will be forced to buy their own.

ASUS Opens Bootloader for ZenFone 2

ASUS has already done a lot of good things with its ZenFone 2 range, not least offering us the chance to have well built, good looking smartphones with interesting specs and an affordable price tag. The company is now looking to get on the good side of Android enthusiasts by issuing a new tool that lets them unlock the bootloader on their ZenFone 2.

Samsung Debuts Tizen Based Z3

Samsung has expanded its own Tizen platform hardware with the release of a new smartphone, the Samsung Z3. Like previous Tizen handsets, the Z3 sports entry level hardware and is targeted for emerging markets, including in India, where the smartphone is landing as an exclusive device. The official launch of the Samsung Z3 today means the Tizen platform now has two smartphones, with the Z1 already available.

Google Exec Praises LG as a Partner

Huawei was the manufacturer of choice for Google's 2015 flagship Nexus 6P, but LG was also on board with the Nexus 5X, a reworked version of the 2014 Nexus 5. It is clear that Google and LG have had a good relationship through the years as this is now the third Nexus device the Korean company has built. Google executive David Burke has now confirmed that indeed the Android giant does prefer working with Korean company LG.

LG Preparing G Pay Mobile Payment System

Mobile payment services are really taking off, and while Apple is leading the way in Apple Pay, Samsung and Google have launched rival services that are already out there. We expect many other smartphone manufacturers to join the party and according to reports today LG will be the next to unveil its own mobile payment system.

Meizu Smartwatch Launching Oct 21

Meizu has had its best year during 2015 and has released numerous new smartphones that have found a solid consumer base and delivered consistent quality. The Chinese company is now ready to branch out into the wearable market and here is an image of the first ever Meizu smartwatch, which is reported to be launched October 21st.

Motorola Force (DROID Turbo 2) Certified in China

The Motorola Force is also the Motorola Kinzie and the Motorola XT1585, while consumers in the United States are probably going to call it the DROID Turbo 2. Whatever the name of this device is, it will almost certainly be a beast, at least judging by the specs that were revealed as the handset passed through China's 3C certification website.

AT&T Rolling Out Extensive LG G4 Update

AT&T is rolling out an over the air update for the LG G4 flagship, but this is not Android Marshmallow or anything to do with Google's platform. That does not mean this upgrade should be ignored as it brings plenty of goodies to the party, albeit under the surface. The second largest carrier in the United States says that the update is available OTA now.

BlackBerry Priv could be Company?s last Smartphone

We are not exactly surprised by reports today suggesting if the BlackBerry Priv is a failure it will be the last smartphone the company ever makes. On one hand it makes sense as BlackBerry's hardware sales have declines to be almost meaningless in the market, but on the other hand we heard this exact same rumor before the launch of the company's last three smartphones.

Editorial: Microsoft Aiming Big, but Industry Backing is Necessary

Microsoft delivered two pretty stellar smartphones at its launch event yesterday, but the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are already proving that the company's uphill battle against iOS and Android cannot merely be fought on a hardware level. The software plays a huge part and while there is plenty to get excited about surrounding the whole Windows 10 ecosystem, the platform will have to break down barriers to be seen and shout from soap boxes to be heard.

LG V10 Lands in South Korea

The LG V10 really impressed us when we got to grips with it as the company?s launch event last week, a real competitor at the high end/phablet at the end of the market. The frankly tank like handset has been launched in South Korea today (October 8), the first market the device will land before making a global tour, launching in other regions.

Apple Takes Home 90% of all Smartphone Profits During Q2

While we generally try to stay out of the Android vs. iOS or Samsung vs. Apple debate, we have to laugh when people point out that Samsung's superior sales hurt Apple. The laughter is because Apple is cleaning up in just about every aspect, aside from having huge amounts of devices like Samsung does. Indeed, Apple's dominance in individual product sales and income has been highlighted again by a Bloomberg report that shows that Cupertino rakes in 90% of all the profit made by smartphones.

Android Lollipop Takes Up 23.5% of all Android Devices

With Android 6.0 Marshmallow readying for a roll out to devices across the platform, how is its predecessor Android Lollipop fairing in the overall platform landscape? Well, very good as it turns out, which when discussing means as good as can be expected due to the huge fragmentation on the platform.

Samsung Growth Sees $6.3 Billion in Profit through Third Quarter

It's been a tough couple of years for Samsung. While the company has managed to stay at the top of the smartphone market, there have been consecutive quarters of tumbling profits and declining sales. However, the company's third quarter saw the company finally return to growth, and while profit is not as high as it was when Samsung's was at its dominant peak they are hugely encouraging.

Problems with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Randomly Shutting Down

It seems as though some users of the newly launched iPhone 6s (and last year's iPhone 6) are experiencing issues with their new flagship smartphones from Apple. The problem appears to have started post update to iOS 9.0.2 and results in the handset getting all weird and even switching itself off randomly.

Sony Giving 10,000 Customers Android 6.0 Marshmallow Early

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is on the verge of being released on Google's own Nexus and Android One smartphones, with third party OEM's following afterwards. Yesterday Sony announced which of its devices will be getting Marshmallow, likely in 2016, and now owners of two of those handsets have the chance to test the software before its main release.

Microsoft Surface Pro 4: Up Close

Microsoft's tablet come laptop, the Surface Pro, has had its fourth iteration announced by the company, rocking the new Windows 10 platform. Arguably the best slate on the market, the Surface Pro 4 arrives loaded with impressive hardware, but honestly we still look at this product as an ultrabook more than we do a traditional tablet.

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, Up Close

Microsoft's Windows platform has failed to make an impact on the market duopoly enjoyed by Apple's iOS and of course Google's all-conquering Android. There has been respectable growth for Windows in lower prices ranges for emerging markets, but the lack of flagship hardware has held Microsoft back for some time. That could change with the introduction of the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, both smartphones that were launched today.

Microsoft Lumia 950: Up Close

Microsoft launched two devices running its Windows 10 Mobile platform today, the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL. While the 950 XL is the more spec?d out of the two, it is the Lumia 950 that is Microsoft's flagship, simply because its smaller size will appeal to more people. Despite not being quite as decked out as its larger sibling, the 950 is a potent package and a welcome addition to the Windows platform, which has been bereft of high end quality for too long.

Microsoft Band 2: Up Close

Microsoft had a mega event today where the company discussed numerous new products and some that are reserved for the future. One of the new devices was a sequel to the company's first wearable, the Microsoft Band, but does the follow up bring enough new goodies to the party.

Sony Confirms which Devices will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow

HTC has revealed some of its devices that will be getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and will definitely be getting the upgrade. Now it is the turn of Sony and the Japanese company has released its Android 6.0 roadmap showing all of the smartphones that will be getting the new software from Google.

Apple iPad Pro to comes in November

Since Apple launched the iPad Pro (Apple Pencil and all) at the start of last month, the trail has gone a bit cold for the tablet come laptop wannabe. Cupertino has not said when the device will launch, but a report out of Japan points to an early November launch for the iPad Pro, with the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard landing at the same time.

LG G3 and G4 getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is out in the wild, available on the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, while Google's other Nexus devices will be next in line for the software. After that third party Android manufacturers will begin rolling out Marshmallow, with Motorola and HTC already confirming their devices that will get the upgrade. The latest company to issue its Android 6.0 roadmap is LG, although no specific dates have been released.
