Apple is preparing to film its own original scripted TV shows and potentially movies, according to a new Wall Street Journal report. Apple executives are reportedly already in discussion with industry veterans about how to create shows comparable to Netflix's Stranger Things or HBO's Westworld. If all goes according to plan, the company will begin offering its original TV shows on its $11.99-per-month streaming service Apple Music by the end of 2017. Sadly, it looks like Apple is going to half-arse the enterprise.

I get a huge kick out of fiction within fiction. I particularly love it when fake games are included to further flesh out a world.
We see this in video games a fair bit — particularly card games that players can use to make bank. Gwent is a strong example, being so popular that it's being released as a standalone. And let's not forget the likes of Pazaak and Wicked Grace.
It's a brand-new day in a brand-new year, and there's a lot to be excited about in 2017. We've got the big Consumer Electronic Show (CES) this week.
We're getting a brand-new Star Wars movie, Game of Thrones comes back with its penultimate season, and Marvel's got not one, not two, but three major films debuting this year. Plus, you've got a ton of books and comic books. What isn't there to love?
Video: Do you want to take a look back at 2016? Yeah, me neither. I've blocked out so much of what happened this year that I'm not even sure if it was a memorable year for movies and TV shows. If I squeeze my brain really hard to remember: Spider-Man was fun in Captain America: Civil War, the trailer for Arrival looked great (I haven't watched the actual movie yet), Game of Thrones ruled this season, Westworld was a show people like to talk about way too much and that's about it. I've forgotten everything else.
Former Mythbusters' star Adam Savage is a self-described "superfan" of The Expanse, Syfy's critically acclaimed sci-fi spectacle. As the show gets ready for season 2, Savage himself hosted a 20-minute expansive look into the space opera, which is available to watch for free online. If you haven't watched any of the show, this will definitely help you catch up.
Offline playback is now on Netflix. Finally! This is a feature we've wanted for so long and it's very exciting that it is finally available. But not everything in Netflix's catalogue is actually available to download.
If you watch a TV show long enough, the home becomes a character in itself. You start remembering the little details of each room, what scenes happened where, and start feeling like their home is just an extension of your house. Yeah, I remember the pool in Breaking Bad and definitely the dining table. Of course, I've been to Arrested Development's model home and done morphine at Mr Robot's apartment. Here's a collection of floor plans from popular TV shows like those. You'll feel right at... home.
If you include the main cast, it's fairly obvious who has the most lines: It's Homer, by hundreds of thousand of words, followed by Marge, Bart and Lisa all bunched up pretty close together. But what if you just count the words spoken by the supporting cast from season one to 26? Which supporting character do you think has spoken the most lines on the show then? Is it Flanders? Moe? Krusty?
Video: It's been three meth-less years since Breaking Bad ended. That's way too damn long without the good stuff of Heisenberg. So to celebrate the three-year anniversary of the show, Nerdwriter decided to take a closer look at its best episode: Ozymandias, the third to last episode in the series where everything Walter White worked for came to an end.
It's been a long time coming, but audiences are finally a few weeks out from seeing the pilot of HBO's Westworld. Now actor James Marsden said part of the reason we all had to wait so long for Westworld was because the writers wanted to make sure before they moved forward, they had the story completely figured out — even through seasons five or more.
Twenty two years ago, fans fell in love with a TV version of Ben Edlund's The Tick, charmed by the show's loopy self-aware superhero send-ups. Fifteen years ago, fans cheered for a live-action version of the Tick starring the too-perfect Patrick Warburton. This year, we get a new Tick for a new landscape, and I'm already hooked.
We've seen a glimpse of Peter Serafinowicz in the weirdly textured super-suit. We've heard from creator Ben Edlund about why he's coming back to his signature creation. Now, we're getting a look at Arthur, the main villain and some other heroes in Amazon's new Tick series. It all looks goofy as heck.
