NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES, ATYPICAL

Jennifer Jason Leigh and Keir Gilchrist are mother and son in Netflix’s new heartfelt comedy series, Atypical, a coming-of-age story from the point-of-view of Sam (played by Gilchrist), an 18-year-old on the autism spectrum. Atypical premieres worldwide August 11and today Netflix debuts this first look clip from the premiere episode — parents of teenagers will relate.

Sam decides it is time to go on a date, find a girlfriend and hopefully love, a journey that sets Sam’s mother, Elsa (played by Jason Leigh), on her own life-changing path as her son seeks more independence. Sam’s entire family must adjust to change, all while exploring the question: what does it really mean to be “normal”? Michael Rapaport plays Sam’s father, Doug, who wants to better connect with and understand his son. Brigette Lundy-Paine plays Sam’s scrappy sister, Casey, and Amy Okuda plays his therapist, Julia.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Reveal Trailer – E3 2017: Bethesda Conference

I have fallen off keeping up with all the new video games coming out. I use to regularly watch E3 every year.  So it is nice to see a game that gets me excited to sit down and play again.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus sure does look like it will be the game for me. Bethseda rolled out the trailer at this years E3 and WOW. I have been a fan of the Wolfenstein games for years. I purchase Wolfenstien: The New Order well to be frank because it was cheap. Dam what a great game. Now from this excellent trailer combining live action and action from the game dam this looks fun.

B.J. Blazkowicz is still alive and with new friends, toys and new abilities.  Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus takes place in 1961. Players will journey from Roswell, New Mexico to gator-filled New Orleans to post-nuclear New York.

“Equip an arsenal of badass guns, and unleash new abilities to blast your way through legions of advanced Nazi soldiers, cyborgs, and über soldiers in this definitive first-person shooter,” Bethesda said in an official announcement.
