For nearly four decades, Jean-Luc Picard of “Star Trek” has largely been presented as genteel, erudite and at times buttoned up. But the Enterprise captain-turned-admiral stepped into a different place a few days ago in the last episode of the streaming drama “Star Trek: Picard.” Now he’s someone who has uttered the F-word for the world to hear. A healthy online conversation followed, with some contending it was out of character. It illustrates the journey that is undertaken when a fictional character voyages from the strictures of network and syndicated television to high-end streaming TV.

In the HBO series “The Last of Us,” audiences follow Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey's characters as they trek across an apocalyptic version of the United States and try to survive. The video game adaptation aired its season finale Sunday. It has not only won over gamers with high expectations going into the series but also viewers who haven't played the game and tend to shy away from horror. Neil Druckmann is the co-creator and writer of the video game. He told The Associated Press that the adaptation works because showrunner Craig Mazin was a fan and took the story seriously.
The metaphysical multiverse comedy “Everything Everywhere All at Once” wrapped its hot dog fingers around Hollywood’s top prize Sunday, winning best picture at the 95th Academy Awards, along with awards for Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis. The film won seven Oscars in all. Yeoh the first Asian woman to win best actress. Brendan Fraser won best actor. The German-language WWI epic “All Quiet on the Western Front” also took four awards as the academy heaped honors on the craft of the harrowing anti-war film. Only two other films in Oscar history — “A Streetcar Named Desire” and “Network” — have won three acting Academy Awards.

It’s during the commercial breaks that the audience inside the Dolby Theatre really comes to life on Oscar night. The stars will gladly play for the cameras posted in their face during the global broadcast – they are actors after all – but a lot of the time it seems like most would rather just talk to their fellow artists in the room. The breaks may go on for an eternity for people watching the Oscars at home but in the Dolby, they’re never long enough as stars on the main floor abruptly end conversations and rush to take their seats again.
An Emmy-winning actor whose career triumphs were later overshadowed by a trial in which he was acquitted of killing his wife, Robert Blake has died at age 89. A statement released on behalf of his niece says he died Thursday in Los Angeles. Blake was the star of the 1970s TV show “Baretta” and landed movie roles, including “In Cold Blood.” Once hailed as among the finest actors of his generation, Blake became better known as the defendant in a real-life murder trial story more bizarre than any in which he acted.

The unlikely awards season juggernaut “Everything Everywhere All at Once” marched on at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday, and even gathered steam with awards not just for best ensemble, Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan but also for Jamie Lee Curtis. The SAG Awards, often an Oscar preview, threw some curve balls into the Oscars race in a ceremony streamed lived on Netflix’s YouTube page from Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

Yes, there’s a giant bear and, yes, it does a ton of coke. And, yes, just as you probably suspected, the movie blows, says Associated Press critic Mark Kennedy. He writes Hollywood has officially sunk very low with “Cocaine Bear,” way past other films where the title alone is all you need to know, like “Snakes on a Plane” or “Sharknado.” Aping other genres of filmmaking, this one never finds its own voice or a way to integrate the ultra-violence with the dark comedy. If you think it’s hysterical to see a bear do a bump off a severed leg, by all means, go. The R-rated mess hits theaters Friday.
A man riding in a car with his cousin shot and killed another passenger then returned to the same neighborhood near Orlando hours later and shot four more people, killing a journalist covering the original shooting and a 9-year-old girl. Orange County Sheriff John Mina characterized the shootings Wednesday as random acts of violence. Mina said during a news conference Thursday that 19-year-old Keith Melvin Moses has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the initial shooting that killed 38-year-old Nathacha Augustin and that “numerous more charges” would follow. Spectrum News 13 identified the slain reporter as Dylan Lyons. Authorities say the gunman also killed T’yonna Major and critically wounded her mother at a nearby home.
The 10-year, $2.5 billion partnership between Apple TV and MLS kicked off on Feb. 1 with the launch of Season Pass. Starting Saturday, every match — regular season, postseason, Leagues Cup, the All-Star game, and developmental leagues — can be accessed on the Apple TV app, allowing fans to watch without local blackouts or restrictions. The MLS/Apple model abandons the traditional framework where most games are available through a national or regional network. Even though MLS had some favorable local agreements, most teams struggled for visibility when they weren't on either Fox, FS1 or ESPN.
There are celebrities with TV travel shows who just can’t wait to show you where they came from or push the limits of their bodies. Then there’s Eugene Levy. The “Schitt’s Creek” star admits he’s not really a fan of the cold or the heat and insects freak him out. Nonetheless, welcome to Apple TV+’s “The Reluctant Traveler,” the unlikely wedding of a droll and cautious host with some of the most beautiful places on Earth. During the eight-episode series, Levy swims in a frozen lake in Finland, walks around slot canyons in Utah and explores a rain forest in Costa Rica.
