'The Outlaws' returns with a chaotic Season 2 trailer

Urban Hippie
The Outlaws, Stephen Merchant's Bristol-set comedy-drama about a mismatched group of lawbreakers carrying out community service together, is back with a Season 2 trailer — and it looks every bit as silly and chaotic as the first.Following on from where Season 1 left off, the trailer catches us up with the core group — played by Rhianne Barreto, Gamba Cole, Merchant, Eleanor Tomlinson, Darren Boyd, Clare Perkins, and Christopher Walken — as they go up against a drug dealer who wants to know where his suitcase of money has disappeared to.Season 1 made our list of the 25 best British TV shows and movies of 2021, so Season 2 is well worth keeping an eye out for.The Outlaws Season 2 will be available to stream on BBC iPlayer from June 5 in the UK, and Prime Video in the U.S.Want more?'The Outla
Whatever 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' is, we know it isn't 'Kenobi'

The details of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Star Wars limited series starring Ewan McGregor on Disney+ this weekend, is currently under more wraps than a Tusken Raider. Sure, you can make a good Gaffi-stick stab at guessing what questions its story will answer, and we have, but good luck getting the showrunners to confirm a single detail on the record. Still, here's one thing Obi-Wan Kenobi director Deborah Chow can tell us: what the show isn't. For one thing, it isn't Kenobi.Chow used the 2013 novel Kenobi by author John Jackson Miller, which covers the beginning of the exiled Jedi's life, as part of her preparation for directing the series. But while the book version of Obi-Wan's story was useful in establishing the "tone" of the show, none of its plot points made it into the on-screen version. "...

Following the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday – the deadliest school shooting in the U.S. in a decade – two trans women found their images being spread online with claims that they were the now-deceased shooter.Mashable spoke to both of these individuals. Neither have any connection to the shooter or the shooting. There is no proof that the deceased shooter, who killed 21 people including 19 students inside Robb Elementary School, is transgender.On the evening of May 24, confirmed photos of the Uvalde school shooter were being shared on Twitter alongside pictures of people who had similar long hair and features. Sabrina noticed one of those photos was of her. In the photo, Sabrina, a 22-year-old living in New York City is seen drinking out of a bottle. She posted the photo on T
'Sniper Elite 5' suggests not all Nazis were bad. F*ck that garbage.

'Sniper Elite 5' suggests not all Nazis were bad. F*ck that garbage.

Let's be clear: There's no such thing as a "good" Nazi. Never has been. Once I realized that Sniper Elite 5 is OK with you sparing Nazi lives, and in fact gives you tools to help decide who's worth saving, it was hard to focus on anything else.Sniper Elite 5, out May 26, is the latest in developer Rebellion's enduring series of World War II-set action games. The original Sniper Elite launched in 2005, but it wasn't until 2012's Sniper Elite V2 that Rebellion embraced the gratuitous violence and open-ended design that would guide each subsequent release in the series. Each one on its own is a marvelously satisfying Nazi murder simulator where you're regularly treated to slow-motion, X-ray vision views of your bullets tearing through their targets' bodies. But Sniper Elite 5 takes the extra,

Well, That Was Us. Though we're not quite recovered from the penultimate episode, NBC's This Is Us, the six-season drama that became notorious for making us cry, aired its final episode on Tuesday, closing the book on the Pearson family forever — but never in our hearts.It's the end of a long, emotional, wonderful era. We've said brutal goodbyes, cried our mascara out, and yelled NOPE multiple times at our screens.And to mark the final ever episode of Season 6 and the series itself, of course, the cast, crew, and fans hit the tweets to expunge their Big Feelings from their tired souls."The end of This Is Us has been a bittersweet but lovely march for those of us who have worked on it," wrote creator Dan Fogelman in a Twitter post Tuesday. "We've had so many occasions to clink glasses, and

In the aftermath of the Robb Elementary School shooting on Tuesday which left 19 children and two teachers dead, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern spoke to Stephen Colbert about gun control — and the measures her own government took following the 2019 Christchurch massacre which saw 51 people killed."I can only speak to our experience in New Zealand, but you know when I watch from afar and see events such as those today I think of them not as a politician, I see them just as a mother and I'm so sorry for what has happened here," Ardern said."Then I think about what happened to us and all I can reflect is, we are a very pragmatic people. When we saw something like that happen everyone said 'never again', so then it was incumbent on us as politicians to respond to that. "Now, we have

'Stranger Things' is almost back, so here's your reminder that Hopper should have stayed dead

Before you get mad at me, let me make one thing clear: I love Stranger Things. Plucky kids uncovering government secrets and fighting monsters from alternate dimensions, all wrapped up in '80s nostalgia? I can't get enough.But boy oh boy, do I have a bone to pick with the ending of the show's third season. And with Season 4 of Netflix's smash hit fast approaching, I figure it's high time for me to officially pick that bone. Here it is: Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) should have stayed dead.Recall, if you will, July of 2019. Stranger Things 3 had just dropped, delivering a near-perfect summer binge. I marveled at the season's twists and turns, sat wide-eyed through the climactic battle with the Mind Flayer, and shed several tears when Hopper sacrificed himself under Starcourt Mall. But be...
