St. Elsewhere (1982–1988)
Chicago – It was an evening to celebrate the Black Perspective in filmmaking at the 53rd Chicago International Film Festival, and also to celebrate one of the great African American actors with a tribute to Alfre Woodard. Woodard walked the Red Carpet on October 21st, 2017, with fellow actors Regina Taylor (“I’ll Fly Away”) and Jussie Smollett (“Empire”).
Alfre Woodard was born in Oklahoma, and studied drama at Boston University. Her breakthrough stage role was in 1977, with “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf,” and her film debut came a year later with “Remember My Name.” After winning an Emmy for a three episode run on TV’s “Hill Street Blues,’ she was hired by the same production team to portray Dr. Roxanne Turner on “St. Elsewhere” from 1985-88.

Andrew takes a nerdy dive into the pop culture real and fictional that's made its way into the world of Red Dwarf...
Creating culture within science-fiction can be tricky. It’s potentially alienating, with the audience required to understand allusions without a reference point. Then again, if you throw in too many contemporary references, the future starts to look dated pretty quickly. Red Dwarf has walked that fine line, building its own stars and entertainment but chucking in the familiar, just to keep the world grounded. We take a look at humanity’s future culture as seen through the eyes of Lister, Rimmer, Cat, Kryten and Holly.

When it’s all said and done Mr. Robot may be the only show in history where I wouldn’t be completely disappointed if all of this was just in the main character’s head the whole time.
Okay, that’s probably not true. The 'this was all a dream/hallucination/snowglobe' hasn’t been attempted in a meaningful way since St. Elsewhere in 1988 and rightfully so. It’s cheap and it undercuts rule #1 in the television Hippocratic oath: What you’re seeing matters.
Still, on Mr. Robot we often have a very little meaningful concept of exactly what we’re even seeing.
Future Man stars Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) as a janitor by day/world-ranked gamer by night who is tasked with preventing the extinction of humanity after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion.
Future Man will premiere on Hulu November 14.
This movie looks like a ton of fun and I like how it pokes fun of itself by saying that it's the exact same plot as the movie The Last Starfighter. There are also nods to a lot of other classic films like Terminator, Back to the Future, Top Gun, and more. Here's the synopsis:
Future Man follows a janitor by day/world-ranked gamer by night who travels through time to prevent the extinction of humanity after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion.

Like we all must, Stephen Furst, the actor who brought Kent Dorfman, a.k.a. the sweet, portly Delta Tau Chi pledge known as Flounder, to life, has passed away. It’d be hard to argue that Furst’s life wasn’t far too short—after all, he was only 63 years old. But though other actors and well-known figures who have passed recently may have made a more lasting or profound mark on the lives of the audience they left behind, Furst’s death hurts a little bit more for me than those other losses, for a couple of reasons.
In 1977, when I was a freshman at the University of Oregon, I landed a spot as an extra on the set of National Lampoon’S Animal House—specifically, I was cast as a “Delta pledge,” and I also ended up

Furst got his first big break in 1978, when he wrangled a role for himself in the soon-to-be hit comedy National Lampoon’s Animal House. (Supposedly, he came to the attention of the film’s producers when he was working as a pizza delivery guy, slipping his headshot into every box he dropped off.) Furst played the lovable Delta pledge Flounder in the surprise hit comedy; he ended up reprising the role in the film’s short-lived TV adaptation, Delta House, the following year.
