  • Mental porn: We tv to air "Sex Box". Enough is enough.

    Charting Course ^ | 8/26/14 | Steve Berman
    The only thing separating a studio audience from a couple having sex on stage is a “soundproof box”.  Then the couple emerges from their connubial enclave to sit on couches and talk about the experience—and their relationship—with a panel of “experts”.  AMC, purveyor of classic movies, picked up the show “Sex Box” from the UK for its We tv unit. There’s nothing classic, or classy, about Sex Box.  It’s crass, craven, and frankly, disgusting.  What kind of person would sit in that studio audience?  How does the cast “warm up” the audience when they are sitting there vicariously focused on a couple...

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | 4/6/2014 | Tim Goodman
    AMC's latest drama tries to set up a grand story of America's first spy ring but forgets to be exciting in the process. Having series so great or so popular that nobody seems to notice how much you flounder when they're not on is a luxury (or is it a mystery?) that AMC must be praying doesn’t go away anytime soon. Its latest series, the Revolutionary War spy drama Turn, may eventually turn into something worth talking about, but the 90-minute premiere seems so intent on setting up Something Really Big For Later that it forgets to be compelling in...

    The new AMC series Turn, which premieres April 6, is bewildering at first. We’re dropped smack in the middle of British-occupied New York. The year is 1776, and Abraham Woodhull (Jamie Bell) is scraping by as a cabbage farmer and sometime innkeeper in Setauket, Long Island. He’s husband to Mary (Meegan Warner), and father to a young child. His father, Richard (Kevin McNally), is a local magistrate loyal to George III. Then the scene shifts. We’re now in New Jersey. A stunning overhead shot reveals a sprawling field of bluecoat rebel bodies lying next to a pool dyed red with...

    The Saul Goodman comedy hour is a go. AMC greenlit the “Breaking Bad” spinoff, “Better Call Saul,” on Wednesday after months of discussions between the network and creator Vince Gilligan. The series will focus on sleazy lawyer and fan favorite Saul Goodman, played by comedian Bob Odenkirk. If you think Gilligan slipped up by announcing the spinoff before “Breaking Bad” ends in three weeks and somehow gave away part of how the series ends, don’t worry. Even if Saul Goodman perishes in the season finale in a blaze of gunfire (like what is probably going to happen with Hank and...

    On Easter Sunday evening, a TV show about good and evil aired on the History Channel -- the final installment of "The Bible" miniseries in which Jesus is executed. AMC ran the season-ending episode of "The Walking Dead" -- the series where zombies try to eat the brains of human beings. One footnote: The world might have been a better place had the zombies preemptively gotten to the guy who thought up this series in the first place. Anyway, the zombies won. They beat Jesus in the ratings, especially among viewers ages 18 to 49. What lesson can be...

"This acquisition will help make Wanda a truly global cinema owner, with theatres and technology that enhance the movie-going experience for audiences in the world's two largest movie markets," said Wang Jianlin, chairman and president of Wanda.

    TV By the Numbers ^ | August 14, 2011 | Robert Seidman
    After contentious negotiations between Sony and AMC over Breaking Bad, AMC has renewed the show for 16 episodes and the series will end after that. Because sixteen episodes is a little longer than normal, it is not yet clear whether AMC will air one last season of 16 episodes or break it up into two mini seasons. Given reports that AMC originally wanted to go with a shortened episode count for season five, this is probably a win for fans — you might be getting a short season five, but there will be a short season six to go along...

    US Politicians Duped By The Brotherhood In the United States, one individual maintained a pretense of "moderation" which would later embarrass the left and the right. According to the testimony of Dr. Michael Waller to the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Abdurahman Alamoudi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. A man born in Eritrea in 1951, he arrived in the US in 1979 and became a naturalized US citizen on May 23, 1996. From 1985 onwards he became involved in many Muslim groups. In 1990 he founded the Washington DC-based American Muslim Council (AMC), which Waller states "has...

The EADS proposal was submitted last year to the Air Mobility Command (AMC) upon their request, says Neil F. Smith, director of A400M programme for EADS NA. The concept proposes to stand-up about eight squadrons of A400Ms within the US mobility force structure, Smith says. "We get a very good reception" at AMC, Smith says. EADS has been seeking to introduce the A400M in the US market for several years, arguing that...

A charismatic African-American convert to Islam, Bray spent this entire decade working for Islamist organizations. Prior to joining MAS, Bray was political director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). Those jobs have helped him build a growing public profile and given him access to politicians and policy makers. And that may explain his reluctance to discuss his life before political activism.

    Does America need a terrorist financier to secure its “freedom”? Sami al-Arian thinks so. His National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom poses as a watchdog for the Constitution, but he has focused his lobbying efforts on repealing anti-terrorist legislation. While Sami al-Arian himself has been arrested for being a prime financier for Palestinian Islamic Jihad (and likely one of its three founders), his political movement continues to threaten homeland security. Al-Arian founded the National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom (NCPPF) in 1997 as a reaction to the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1996. The coalition’s stated goal “is to help change the...

    BUFFALO, N.Y. — Three relatives of a man accused of belonging to an al-Qaida terror cell in the Buffalo suburb of Lackawanna were arrested Tuesday and charged with illegally operating a money transferring business. Investigators have been unable to trace any of the money to terrorist activities, said U.S. Attorney Michael Battle. Mohamed Albanna, 51, a leader in the area's Yemeni community and an uncle of a man still being hunted by U.S. authorities, was seized by Customs and Drug Enforcement Administration agents in the doorway of his Buffalo store, the Queen City Cigarettes and Candy Co.

The Bush-bashing actor-turned-activist and the Muslim vote-courting political organizer joined together at a Washington, D.C.-area conference last weekend to perpetuate bald lies about the Patriot Act and to oppose the "repressive" War on Terror (repressing terrorist suspects apparently being a bad thing). Baldwin and Norquist's panel, titled "Strange Bedfellows," was sponsored by the ultraliberal group People For the American Way.

    An elite group of correction officers, cops and federal agents is closely monitoring suspected radicals at city jails to prevent them from recruiting angry and isolated prisoners into their fold. Authorities believe the jails, along with prisons across the nation, could become fertile recruiting grounds for homegrown jihadists who follow the teachings of Osama Bin Laden and other Islamic terrorists. Aware of the great risk, city correction bosses created the specialized intelligence unit on Rikers Island to stop fanatics before they can indoctrinate others. "We aggressively monitor all security risk groups," Martin Horn, who runs the city's Department of Correction,...

Vincent Mitchell, was a pilot with the 99th Pursuit Squadron," said Maj. Alex Cole, an Air Force Two pilot assigned to the 1st Airlift Squadron. Colonel Jefferson not only knew Lieutenant Mitchell, but also shared...

    AMC: What makes a movie a 'classic'? You can actually sue a TV channel for sucking -- and win. That's the lesson of today's legal victory against AMC, in a breach of contract suit filed by Time Warner Cable (like EW.com, a division of Time Warner). Like some viewers who remember when AMC stood for ''American Movie Classics,'' the cable operator complained that AMC doesn't show classic movies much anymore. (These days, the channel just goes by the abbreviation ''AMC,'' as if to gloss over the word ''Classics,'' much like KFC, which doesn't want to remind anyone in our calorie-conscious...

    The judge has ruled: "Look Who's Talking, Too," starring John Travolta and Kirstie Alley, just isn't a classic. After it changed its programming in 2002 to include more contemporary films, including movies like "Staying Alive" and the "Look Who's Talking" movies, the American Movie Classics channel was sued by Time Warner Cable for veering too far from its original format of classic movies. A ruling on July 8 by Judge Bernard J. Fried of New York State Supreme Court gives the Time Warner unit, which has 11 million subscribers, the green light to drop the station. A spokesman for Time...

    The American Movie Classics channel runs too many films that are not classic enough, violating its contract with Time Warner Cable, a State Supreme Court justice has ruled. As a result, Justice Bernard Fried of State Supreme Court in Manhattan said Time Warner Cable, the second-biggest cable operator in the nation with 11 million subscribers, has the right to cancel its contract to carry AMC, which is owned by Cablevision Systems Corp. Under that 1993 contract, extended in 2000, AMC is largely limited to running films from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. But in 2000 AMC announced it was adding...
