Someone must have been very good this year, because Amazon Prime Video has plenty of presents this December: original movies include Sound of Metal, starring Riz Ahmed as a drummer suffering hearing loss and Olivia Cooke as his recovering heroin addict girlfriend and bandmate; I’m Your Woman, a 1970s crime drama starring Rachel Brosnahan as a suburban housewife forced on the run when her thief husband betrays his partners; and Sylvie’s Love, a romance set in 1950s Harlem starring Tessa Thompson.

Then there are the series — highlights include the fifth season of sci-fi hit The Expanse, plus new YA drama The Wilds. (Archive shows headed to Prime this month include all five seasons of early 2000s classic The Bernie Mac Show, and all eight seasons of ’90s sitcom Mad About You, including the 2019 revival.)

Other new additions include the 2020 Valley Girl remake; Blackbird, starring Susan Sarandon as a dying woman hosting her family for one last time; A League of their Own; Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle and its sequel; and the 2009 animated hit Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Two more of Sean Connery’s James Bond classics, Dr. No and Goldfinger, head back to the streaming service with many of the rest of the late actor’s Bond titles.

Keep reading to find out what else is new on Amazon Prime Video in December, with some highlights noted at the top.


HIGHLIGHTS



Sound of Metal (2019)

97%

Description: During a series of adrenaline-fueled one-night gigs, itinerant punk-metal drummer Ruben (Riz Ahmed) begins to experience intermittent hearing loss. When a specialist tells him his condition will rapidly worsen, he thinks his music career — and with it his life — is over. His bandmate and girlfriend Lou (Olivia Cooke) checks the recovering heroin addict into a secluded sober house for the deaf in hopes it will prevent a relapse and help him learn to adapt to his new situation. But after being welcomed into a community that accepts him just as he is, Ruben has to choose between his equilibrium and the drive to reclaim the life he once knew. Utilizing startling, innovative sound design techniques, director Darius Marder takes audiences inside Ruben’s experience to vividly recreate his journey into a rarely examined world.

Critics Consensus: An evocative look at the experiences of the deaf community, Sound of Metal is brought to life by Riz Ahmed’s passionate performance.

Premiere Date: December 4



The Wilds: Season 1 (2020)

92%

Description: Part survival drama, part dystopic slumber party, The Wilds follows a group of teen girls from different backgrounds who must fight for survival after a plane crash strands them on a deserted island. The castaways both clash and bond as they learn more about each other, the secrets they keep, and the traumas they’ve all endured. There’s just one twist to this thrilling drama: these girls did not end up on this island by accident.

Premiere Date: December 11



I'm Your Woman (2020)

80%

Description: A decidedly female take on crime dramas of the 1970s, I’m Your Woman is a tale of love, betrayal, motherhood—and what it takes to claim your life as your own. Suburban housewife Jean (Rachel Brosnahan) lives a seemingly easy life, supported by husband Eddie’s (Bill Heck) career as a thief. But when Eddie betrays his partners, Jean and her baby are forced to go on the run, and Eddie’s old friend Cal (Arinzé Kene) is tasked with keeping them safe. After Cal mysteriously disappears, Jean befriends his wife Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake) and the two women set out on a perilous journey into the heart of Eddie’s criminal underworld.

Critics Consensus: Smart, sophisticated, and subversive, I’m Your Woman is brought to life by a powerful performance from Rachel Brosnahan — and finds director Julia Hart in near-total command of her craft.

Premiere Date: December 11



The Expanse: Season 5 (2020)

100%

Description: Season five of The Expanse picks up as multitudes of humans leave the solar system in search of new homes and vast fortunes on the earth-like worlds beyond the alien Ring, and a heavy price for centuries of exploitation of the Belt finally comes due and a reckoning is at hand. For the crew of the Rocinante and the leaders of the Inner Planets and the Belt, the past and present converge, bringing forth personal challenges that have wide-reaching repercussions throughout the Solar System. Amos (Wes Chatham) returns to Earth to confront his past and the legacy of the life he fought to leave behind. Naomi (Dominique Tipper) reaches out to her estranged son in a desperate bid to save him from his father’s toxic influence. Bobbie (Frankie Adams) and Alex (Cas Anvar) confront the collapse of Mars as they chase a shadowy cabal with ties to terrorists and criminals. Holden (Steven Strait) wrestles with the consequences of his own past with the Protomolecule, the aliens who built it, and the mystery of what killed them. Drummer (Cara Gee), with a new crew, fights to escape who and what she used to be. And Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), refusing to be relegated to the sidelines, fights to prevent a terrorist attack unrivaled in history.

Premiere Date: December 16



Sylvie's Love (2020)

93%

Description: Written and directed by Eugene Ashe, Sylvie’s Love combines romance and music into a sweeping story that brings together changing times, a changing culture, and the true price of love. Set in the summer of 1957, aspiring television producer Sylvie (Tessa Thompson) and saxophonist Robert (Nnamdi Asomugha) first meet and fall for one another. Time and circumstances pull them apart, but years later they meet again by chance, only to find that while their lives have changed, their feelings for each other remain the same.

Premiere Date: December 25

And there’s James Wan’s Aquaman trailer, which we already know he’s putting the finishing touches on; it will go live on Saturday.

Movie Trailers


Trailer for Cut Throat City

Comic-Con isn’t only about big studio movies. RZA released the trailer for Cut Throat City, the third movie he’s directed after The Man with the Iron Fists and Love Beats Rhymes (and an episode of Iron Fist). This drama tells the story of a group of 9th Ward residents in post Hurricane Katrina New Orleans, and has a mega ensemble cast including Shameik Moore, Wesley Snipes, T.I., Terrence Howard, Demetrius Shipp Jr., Denzel Whitaker, Keean Johnson, and Kat Graham.

In theaters in 2019.


Trailer for Aquaman (2018) 65%

The full trailer to James Wan‘s Aquaman movie already shows more of Atlantis than Aquaman (Jason Momoa)’s scenes in Justice League. Full of sea creatures and epic battles between undersea armies, Aquaman is set to be the action event of the Christmas season (and maybe another Fresh addition to the DCEU?!). There’s plenty of focus on Arthur’s childhood training, and Mera (Amber Heard) gets the most badass moments of the trailer. Check out our full breakdown of the Aquaman trailer. 

In theaters December 21. 


Trailer for Shazam! (2019) 90%

The trailer for Shazam! focuses on the kids, which makes it even better when Billy Batson (Asher Angel) turns into Shazam (Zachary Levi). Levi nails the childlike discovering of super powers. We also glimpse that Superman and Batman exist in this world.

In theaters April, 2019.


Trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) 42%

The full trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters gives us a look at all those other creatures over which Godzilla reigns. But are the real monsters the humans? Vera Farmiga has a plan to unleash the monsters to combat the apocalyptic scenarios also glimpsed in this trailer. Millie Bobbie Brown, Kyle Chandler, Charles Dance and Thomas Middleditch also get screen time.

Trailer for Preacher: Season 3 (2018) 92%

The trailer for the second half of Preacher‘s third season was as bizarre and tantalizing as anyone who knows the show would predict, and included a look at Australian actor Noah Taylor as a fast-food–working Hitler. The fast food chain is the series’ take on Subway, as the sandwich giant had refused to give the show’s creators permission to user their name. That decision prompted Executive Producer Seth Rogen to note some of the brand’s previous spokespeople and ask, “Where do you draw the line, Subway?”

Preacher is currently airing on AMC on Sundays at 10pm/9pm Central.

Teaser for Homecoming

Great new shows leave critics and fans clamoring for their second seasons, but new series don’t always deliver when they return for round two – many suffer the dreaded sophomore slump.

That’s not the case with these titles — in fact, just the opposite. We’ve pulled together a list of TV series that enjoyed the biggest sophomore bumps between season 1 and season 2, according to our Tomatometer. To ensure a fair accounting of opinion, we only included series with at least 20 reviews determining their scores in both their first and second seasons (you could find, if you dug deep, shows with bigger season-on-season improvements, but the pool of reviews would be pretty shallow).

A few of the shows here weren’t very good to begin with, so any improvement is noticeable, but others started strong and managed to get even stronger by their second seasons.

Some of the most prestigious titles in television turned up — hello, Breaking Bad and Mad Men — but the series with the biggest bump of all is Marvel’s Iron Fist on Netflix, which on Friday releases season 2. The second season has a 58% Tomatometer score (updated) from 45 reviews, giving the title a 40% bump between its first and second seasons. The next biggest bump was for Fox’s Human Target, which experienced a 26% jump between season 1 and 2.

Read on to see which other titles were competing with Marvel’s Iron Fist bump.

Updated on February 24, 2019 to reflect season score changes.


15. Narcos: Season 1 (2015) 78% | Narcos: Season 2 (2016) 93%

UP 13%

The show: The first two seasons centered on Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook) and Javier Pena (Pedro Pascal)’s pursuit of notorious druglord Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura).

The ratings: Netflix won’t say, but they’re still producing the show, this week announcing that the fourth season, set in Mexico, will premiere November 16. Season 3 tackled the Cali cartel.

What improved: Season 2 was building up to the death of Escobar. Screenrant’s Kevin Yeoman wrote, “By streamlining the narrative into a compelling manhunt that makes far better use of actors like Pascal and Holbrook, while still giving Moura room to shine, Narcos has definitely improved in season 2.” AV Club’s Joshua Alston wrote, “Even with less ground to cover, Narcos is pleasantly dense and steadily introduces intriguing new characters to fill its impending power vacuum and firm up the show’s historicity.”


14. The Good Wife: Season 1 (2009) 83% | The Good Wife: Season 2 (2010) 96%

UP 13%

The show: Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) stands by her husband (Chris Noth) when he admits to an affair, and ultimately becomes a successful lawyer with a complicated love life of her own.

The ratings: It was a juggernaut from the beginning by modern broadcast standards. The first two seasons each averaged 13 million viewers and only dipped slightly below 11 million by the end. Spin-off The Good Fight is still going on CBS All Access.

What Improved: The supporting cast became every bit as important as Margulies. Many critics lauded Archie Panjabi for her role as in-house law firm investigator Kalinda Sharma, while USA Today’s Roberto Bianco singled out another: “Wife has expanded its reach to envelop all of its well-acted main characters, a growing stable that now includes Alan Cumming‘s Eli Gold (a great addition).” The show also rewarded viewers who watched every episode making it a worthwhile investment. EW’s Ken Tucker wrote, “The Good Wife is so layered with previous-episode details that are never forgotten that it already has its own sort of mythology.”


13. () % | Mad Men: Season 2 (2008) 100%

UP 16%

The show: Hard-drinking, womanizing ad man Don Draper (Jon Hamm) tries to survive the ’60s while times change around him; meanwhile, female employees Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) and Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks) rise through the ranks.

The ratings: After a strong premiere to 1.65 million viewers, season 1 averaged 900,000. It nearly doubled for season 2 as the show’s acclaim made AMC a major player in cable originals.

What Improved: Critics caught on that Mad Men was a slow burn. TV Guide’s Matt Roush said, “Mad Men sizzles, simmering with erotic tension and crackling with cynical wit.” Alan Sepinwall, then with the Newark Star-Ledger, wrote, “as with a great baseball game, the leisurely pace gives you more time to marinate in the details.”


12. You're the Worst: Season 1 (2014) 82% | You're the Worst: Season 2 (2015) 97%

UP 16%

The show: Gretchen (Aya Cash) and Jimmy (Chris Geere) are both dysfunctional, but they may be perfect for each other. Their friends Lindsay (Kether Donohue) and Edgar (Desmin Borges) may be on their own.

The ratings: Season 1 only averaged 300,000 viewers on FX, so they moved it over to FXX where season 2’s 200,000 was just fine. The show will wrap up in its fifth season next year.

What Improved: Season 2 went deeper into the characters’ psychological issues like Gretchen’s depression. Critics appreciated the frank portrayal of delicate subjects. GQ’s Joshua Rivera praised “the way it handles a sobering character arc while remaining one of the sharpest comedies around.” And like life, You’re the Worst’s problems can’t be solved in 22 minutes. “It resists learning the lesson that each installment would seem to set out to teach its characters,” wrote TV Fanatic’s Caralynn Lippo. The show hits 100% in seasons 3 and 4.


11. Enlightened: Season 1 (2011) 79% | Enlightened: Season 2 (2013) 96%

UP 16%

The show: Amy Jellicoe (Laura Dern) visits a mental-health retreat after she suffers an epic breakdown at the office. When she returns, she is reassigned to the company’s basement operations with other corporate misfits.

The ratings: Enlightened was never a ratings juggernaut for HBO. The first season barely averaged 170,000 viewers. Season 2 jumped up to 250,000.

What Improved: The show connected with the viewers who saw it, but its season 2 critical surge ultimately couldn’t save it. Alternet’s Eileen Jones said, “Unleash Amy and watch the endless repercussions in unsparing detail and laugh sardonically at your own stumbling way through the poisoned world.” Francine Prose of the New York Review of Books marveled at the strength of the show’s characters, especially “how much of ourselves we may see in them, if we only have the temerity to allow it.”


10. Halt and Catch Fire: Season 1 (2014) 76% | Halt and Catch Fire: Season 2 (2015) 91%

UP 17%

The show: The early days of the computer business were full of drama for Joe (Lee Pace) and Gordon (Scoot McNairy). But by season 2, the show became more about Cameron (Mackenzie Davis) and Donna (Kerry Bishe) developing online games.

The ratings: Season 1 averaged 750,000 viewers. Season 2 was down a tad to half a million, but the show held on for four seasons on AMC.

What improved: Turns out software is more dramatic than hardware, and focusing on the women helped. “The fact that two young women are bossing the enterprise gives it an added piquancy,” Globe and Mail’s John Doyle wrote, while Andy Greenwald wrote in Grantland, “Its inversion of decades of prestige-drama gender convention seems painfully obvious, and yet I’m not sure if any other show has actually attempted it.”


9. The Magicians: Season 1 (2016) 74% | The Magicians: Season 2 (2017) 91%

UP 17%

The show: Harry Potter for twentysomethings, the series takes place in a secret magic academy, where young adults learn how to practice the magic they only read about in storybooks.

The ratings: The Magicians averages 750,000 viewers on Syfy with a high of a solid million for the second season premiere. It’s still going with a fourth season on the way.

What Improved: The second season gave fans more of what they wanted: more sex, bad behavior, witty banter, and whimsical magic, but with higher emotional stakes, too. Black Girl Nerds’ Kyndal Wilson wrote, “There is no truer statement than ‘more magic, more problems.’ If you’re already a fan of the show, you won’t want to miss this.” Screenrant’s Molly Freeman called it “another season focused on the darker, more cynical side to magic grounded in the whimsy of the show’s characters.”


8. Breaking Bad: Season 1 (2008) 86% | Breaking Bad: Season 2 (2009) 97%

UP 17%

The show: After a cancer diagnosis, high school teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston) becomes the crystal meth cook Heisenberg with his partner Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), to the chagrin of his wife Skyler (Anna Gunn).

The ratings: As AMC’s follow-up original series to Mad Men, Breaking Bad started out modestly. Its first two seasons averaged 1.5 million viewers. It wasn’t until after season 3 that people started binging and catching up to follow the saga as it aired.

What Improved: Season 1 was only seven episodes, so it was just getting started. Season 2 may have been when critic Alan Sepinwall decided it was a modern classic, writing, “This brilliant second season of Breaking Bad is starting to earn a place in any discussion of the classics of the genre.” Sepinwall would go on to write a book on the series, Breaking Bad 101. Newsday’s Verne Gay also accurately predicted the show’s Emmy dominance saying, “if the rest of the season matches Sunday’s premiere, an Emmy nomination for best drama seems certain.”


7. Hannibal: Season 1 (2013) 82% | Hannibal: Season 2 (2014) 98%

UP 17%


The show: Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) works with Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) to help the FBI catch serial killers. Fans of films Red DragonThe Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal and the novels of the same name by author Thomas Harris know, of course, that Hannibal the Cannibal is the most evil one of all.

The ratings: NBC gave series creator Fuller three seasons to tell the story, at least up through the end of the Red Dragon story line. Season 1 dropped from just over 4 million viewers to just below 3 million. The ratings didn’t improve in season 2, but those who kept watching agree that the show did.

What Improved: Fuller rewarded loyal viewers, never compromising the series’ artistic sensibility or explicit gore to try to win new fans. Critics, at least, noticed the level at which Fuller was working; TV Guide’s Matt Roush said, “[It] is a feast of macabre freakishness, going beyond the realm of guilty pleasure in a sustained nightmare of horrific yet elegantly hypnotic design.” Slate’s Willa Paskin marveled, “Somehow it has become an engrossing, psychologically dense show that is also visually stunning.”


6. The Expanse: Season 1 (2015) 78% | The Expanse: Season 2 (2017) 95%

UP 18%

The show: Based on the James S. A. Corey novels, the trio of U.N. executive Chrisjen Avasaraia (Shohreh Aghdashloo), detective Joseph Miller (Thomas Jane), and captain Jim Holden (Steven Strait) combat espionage and hostile alien technology in the colonized solar system.

The ratings: Ratings for the expensive sci-fi series went from 700,000 viewers in season 1 to half a million in season 2 on Syfy. The network ordered a third season, but then cancelled the show. Fans rejoiced when Amazon founder, president, and CEO Jeff Bezos announced that the company’s premium streaming service will distribute the fourth.

What Improved: With a whole solar system, you can imagine there’s a lot of ground for the first season to cover. Those who stuck with it were rewarded with more focused storytelling.“Unburdened with introductory world building and backed by surefooted writing, The Expanse returns as thrilling and intriguing as ever,”  We Got This Covered’s Mitchel Broussard wrote. Indiewire’s Liz Shannon Miller said, “There’s more focus to the first four episodes of the season than expected, thanks to more of the characters uniting in proximity to similar goals.”


5. Penny Dreadful: Season 1 (2014) 80% | Penny Dreadful: Season 2 (2015) 100%

UP 20%

The show: Famous characters from horror literature team up to save Victorian London from monsters, including Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), and Van Helsing (David Warner) with American gunslinger Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) and the haunted Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) added to the mix.

The ratings: Season 1 averaged 750,000 viewers for Showtime. Season 2 dropped to about half a million, but surged back by the season finale. The series got a third season, but the season finale ended with “The End,” though Showtime never announced that the show was cancelled.

What Improved: Season 2 didn’t offer a jumping-in point, according to New York Daily News’s David Hinckley, but “it should nicely satisfy those who hopped onto the ride last year.” Salon’s Sonia Saraiya wrote, “If anything, the return from hiatus has shifted Penny Dreadful into even higher gear.”


4. Sense8: Season 1 (2015) 72% | Sense8: Season 2 (2016) 93%

UP 22%

The show: Eight people around the world discover they are linked by extraordinary mental abilities and must team up to survive being hunted by Whispers.

The ratings: Even though Netflix does not release ratings, the streaming service clearly wasn’t happy with the performance of the second season, because the series was cancelled. There were enough passionate fans demanding more Sense8, however, that Netflix agreed to a finale movie, but the Wachowski siblings and J. Michael Straczynski had a five-season plan for this story.

What Improved: The Wachoskis’ bold new mythology takes a while to explain, but patient viewers are rewarded, according to Indiewire’s Liz Shannon Miller, who wrote, “Sense8 may have had a slow start in season 1, but season 2 is a hell of a ride.” The Washington Post’s Sonia Roo wrote that she was just getting into the characters: “Sense8 avoids tokenizing its characters, which involves giving each sensate a full backstory that helps viewers understand what motivates them.”


3. The Newsroom: Season 1 (2012) 48% | The Newsroom: Season 2 (2013)

UP 22%

The show: After a breakdown, newsman Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) tries to redeem himself while working under ex-girlfriend MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer), while young producers Jim Harper (John Gallagher Jr.) and Maggie Jordan (Alison Pill) try to prove themselves.

The ratings: Creator Aaron Sorkin’s opinionated dramatization of real news stories from recent history polarized audiences and critics, and seasons 1 and 2 hovered around 2 million viewers. Sorkin, who also created acclaimed NBC White House drama The West Wing, decided to end his HBO series after its third season.

What Improved: Sorkin won over some Rotten reviews to Fresh in the second season, like LA Times’ Mary McNamara and People’s Tom Giliatto. A few critics posting negative reviews for season 1 simply didn’t come back to review the second season, like Wall Street Journal’s Dorothy Rabinowitz and Time’s James Poniewozik, which also gave Fresh reviews more weight in season 2’s score.


2. Human Target: Season 1 (2010) 62% | Human Target: Season 2 (2010) 88%

UP 26%

The show: Based on the DC Comic, Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) keeps his clients safe by making himself the target.

The ratings: A lead-in from American Idol, the action series brought a lot of eyeballs to season 1, though its initial audience of 10 million viewers dropped. By season 2 it was only getting six million, not enough for Fox to give it a third season.

What Improved: If viewers had listened to the critics, they might have known that Human Target really brought it in season 2, adding Indira Varma and Janet Montgomery as two strong female characters. That sold What Culture’s Dan Owen on season 2, writing, “The inclusion of two strong women is an obvious but welcome change to Human Target‘s dynamic.” For HollywoodChicago’s Brian Tallerico, season 2’s changes should have made it must-see TV: “Human Target seems to be taking itself more seriously in season 2, trying to add the emotional weight that might have kept it from becoming a water-cooler hit last season.”


1. Marvel's Iron Fist: Season 1 (2017) 20% | Marvel's Iron Fist: Season 2 (2018) 55%

Up 40%


The show: After studying Kung Fu in Asia, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returns to New York, where he fights crime as the superhero Iron Fist.

The ratings: Netflix does not release ratings, but it’s no secret that season 1 of Iron Fist was a bust. Fans and critics complained about the choppy editing (kind of a problem when showcasing his super power requires badass fight scenes), its slow pace, and derivative echoes of other origin stories.

What Improved: Praise of season 2 credits the show with hearing those complaints and addressing them. TVLine’s Matt Mitovich said in his Rotten review, “Iron Fist season 2 marks an improvement over its well-derided freshman run, but still lacks punch,” while Den of Geek’s Mike Cecchini said in his Fresh review, “A new showrunner, a new fight coordinator… all help tremendously, along with better villains, a more focused story, and a willingness to put the show’s supporting cast to better use.”

It’s time for our weekly countdown of the Winter TV premieres! Here are the best new shows for the week of Friday, February 3, 2017. See how this week’s shows, The Expanse, PowerlessTraining Day, 24: Legacy, Superior Donuts, The 100, and Santa Clarita Diet stack up against each other on the Tomatometer!

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Training Day falls short of recapturing the excellence of the film in its television incarnation -- and fails to distinguish itself from the current squad of tired police procedurals.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: 24: Legacy offers well-acted escapism, yet this reboot also inherits many of its predecessor's flaws, and an early narrative rut signals a missed opportunity for reinvention.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: While Superior Donuts' talented cast impressively delivers, the annoying laugh track and stale jokes leave a hole in the middle of a crusty -- albeit topical -- narrative.

Powerless: Season 1 (2017)
61%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Powerless has a strong premise leaving room for improvement -- and strong performances from a talented cast -- but the show's initial spark is dimmed by uneven execution and a lack of laughs.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Santa Clarita Diet serves up an excellent cast, frequent laughs, and an engaging premise -- but the level of gore might not be to everyone's taste.

The 100: Season 4 (2017)
93%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Season 4 of The 100 rewards longtime viewers with a deeper look at their favorite characters, as well as adding exceptional nuance and depth to their thrilling circumstances.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Expanse's second season offers more of the show's excellent signature production values while increasing character development and politically thrilling narratives.

SYFY RENEWS THE EXPANSE FOR SEASON TWO

Syfy announced Thursday its 2017 plans for a second season of The Expanse (Fresh at 74 percent), which is currently in the middle of its first 10-episode run. Set 200 years in the future, The Expanse follows the story of a hard-boiled detective (Thomas Jane) and a rogue ship captain (Steven Strait) who join forces to track down a missing woman, uncovering what could be the biggest conspiracy in human history. “The Expanse is firing on all cylinders creatively, building a passionate fan base among viewers and critics alike, and delivering on Syfy’s promise of smart, provocative science fiction entertainment,” said SyFy and Chiller president Dave Howe. “We can’t wait to see where the story takes us in season two.” To catch up before episode five, “Back to the Butcher,” airs Tuesday Jan. 5 at 10 p.m., watch the first four episodes of season one on SyFy.com.


PRESIDENT OBAMA TAKES JERRY SEINFELD FOR A RIDE

No matter which side of the political aisle you’re on, you have to admit that President Obama has fired off some pretty good jokes during his time in office. For Jerry Seinfeld, that was enough to invite POTUS onto Wednesday night’s seventh-season premiere of Comedians in Cars Getting CoffeeThe 20-minute episode, which is currently available for free on Crackle, featured a few improvised bits with Obama and the funnyman — mostly trying to drive a 1963 Corvette Stingray off the presidential premises (no such luck, by the way), and some fun banter over a cup of coffee in the White House commissary. Highlights of their Q&A included Obama’s anecdote about golfing with Seinfeld creator Larry David, and also the president’s admission that a “pretty sizable percentage” of world leaders are crazy. “Part of what happens is these guys, I think the longer they stay in office, the more likely that is to happen,” Obama said. “At a certain point, your feet hurt and you’re having trouble peeing, and you have absolute power.” This week’s installment is the first of six episodes in season seven, which will include interviews with Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Garry Shandling, Kathleen Madigan, and Sebastian Maniscalco, streaming every Wednesday night at 11:30 p.m.

THE BIG BANG THEORY FACING LEGAL BATTLE OVER ‘SOFT KITTY’

According to Deadline, a legal battle erupted this week over a lullaby sung several times on the CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory. Known as “Soft Kitty,” the song has been sung in numerous episodes in which Jim Parsons‘ character, Sheldon, needs some comforting. Due to the song’s popularity, CBS has even sold “Soft Kitty” merchandise, such as hoodies, key chains, and plush toys. The late poet Edith Newlin wrote “Warm Kitty” in 1937, and now her daughters, Margaret Perry and Ellen Chase, want CBS to pay up for their mother’s now-famous lyrics. The lullaby bit has appeared in eight different episodes of TBBT since 2008. Warner Bros., which produces the show, has not commented on the suit, but the music publisher who has held the rights to the poem for the past 80 years, says that “Warm Kitty” has been properly licensed. See the full story here.
