Live action musicals on network TV are all the rage these days, and now ABC America is entering the genre with its own weird mishmash version of The Little Mermaid. But this version will be a two-hour special event that somehow promises to meld scenes from the animated Disney classic with live musical performances by an as-yet-unrevealed cast of "celebrity artists". The hell?


Once Upon a Time is in a bit of a transition, and that's putting it mildly. As the show gets ready to close out season six, with a just-announced seventh season on the way, we've learned that a bunch of the actors will not be coming back next year. Here's everyone who's still on board the OUAT train... and who's getting the hell out of Storybrooke.


I think it was pretty clear that Agents of SHIELD had left the door open for the spirit of vengeance, AKA Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna), to return. The bigger question was if he would be back this season and, if he is back, how does he fit in with the current fight in the Framework?


American gothic gets a lot of play on TV and film. There's last year's mystery drama American Gothic, the upcoming horror film American Gothic and the 1995 Sam Raimi-produced bug nut wild TV show American Gothic. Southern gothic, the much more fun and fantastical localised form of the gothic genre, gets much less play. Outside of a few Tennessee Williams adaptations and a rogue season of American Horror Story, the Southern gothic genre often feels ignored.


Last year, our ABC produced a series called Glitch. It's a paranormal TV show, but talks about interpersonal relationships in that inimitable style that our national broadcaster does so well. If you've seen it on TV, you might be surprised to know that it's on Netflix now. If you've seen it on Netflix, you might be surprised to hear that it was produced with funding from the ABC.


The last year has been a tough time for free to air TV. Even Freeview, the peak body representing the FTA channels, says viewing habits have "changed dramatically" — everyone is using their phones instead. Netflix and Stan and catch-up apps from every major digital TV channel means that you don't need to watch TV, unless you're dead-set on watching The Bachelor live and in real time. To that end, within a month Freeview will do its bit to speed that push away from the big screen and onto mobiles with a single unified app that streams all 15 major FTA channels to your phone.
