There’s mothing like a little bit of fresh air to clear the mind. It seems to be working for Gordon Ramsay. His new show, Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, is taking him on all sorts of adventures in the great outdoors, and some have been pretty wild. But if you watch the show, even in those unpredictable (and sometimes scary) situations, you’re going to see a kinder, gentler Ramsay, one who isn’t cursing up a storm all the time. So why are we hearing fewer “bleeps” on Uncharted? Ramsay offered us his theory. (Click on the media bar below to hear Gordon Ramsay)
Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted airs Sundays at 10/9c on Nat Geo.
Though they haven’t always gotten the best reviews, the first two Fallen movies — 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen and 2016’s London Has Fallen — were both solid performers at the box office. Following the three-year cycle once again, Gerard Butler is back as Secret Service agent Mike Banning in a new sequel, Angel Has Fallen. Butler told us he’s always been up for the idea of another sequel, but wanted to make sure the premise was original enough to keep the fans interested.

People who watch This Is Us know one basic truth about the show: Jack Pearson is the kind of father everyone would like to have. He may be flawed, but he’s loving, caring, and always taking an interest in his kids. It’s a dream role for Milo Ventimiglia. But while the character is fully fleshed out in the show’s scripts, Ventimiglia says he brings a little something extra to the role — the lessons learned from his own father.

This Is Us will air its fourth season premiere Tuesday, September 24 on NBC.
Considering that producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg both rose through the ranks as proteges of Judd Apatow, it’s not surprising to see they’re two of the driving forces behind the raunchy new pre-teen comedy Good Boys. When we spoke to Rogen and Goldberg, they told us why they became such big fans of the concept. (Click on the media bar below to hear Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg)
It seems that treacherous women are always on Marc Cherry’s mind. If you look at the shows he’s created, a pattern develops — Desperate Housewives, Devious Maids, and now Why Women Kill. Why does Cherry have such an affinity for writing odd female characters? When we asked, he said it came from a somewhat surprising source. (Click on the media bar below to hear Marc Cherry)
Why Women Kill is streaming now on CBS All Access.
Where’d You Go, Bernadette is a film that many women of a certain age can relate to. It’s the very personal story of a woman who, after taking the time to raise her kids, discovers that she needs to find herself once again now that they’re grown. The movie is based on the best-selling novel by Maria Semple; Cate Blanchett was a fan of the novel, and she thinks it translates really well to the big screen.
Where’d You Go, Bernadette is playing now in theaters.
It was the show that — like some of the villainous monsters and demons that turned up on the series — just wouldn’t die. Season after season, fans came back to Supernatural for more of the Winchester brothers’ otherworldly adventures. Finally, after the show’s 14th season, it was announced that Supernatural would come back and wrap things up in its 15th and final season. The show’s stars, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, said they believe the show still had plenty of stories to tell, but the timing just felt right to end the show on its own terms.

The final season of Supernatural will premiere Thursday, October 10 on The CW.
Apparently the Marvel Cinematic Universe still isn’t quite done with the storyline that culminated with Avengers: Endgame. Even though we know what happened to Scarlett Johansson’s character, Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow), in Endgame, there’s still plenty we don’t know about the mysterious superhero, but the prequel film, Black Widow, will change that. Johansson, of course, will be reprising her character, and Rachel Weisz has been cast as Melina, another Black Widow. Weisz told us she’s absolutely thrilled to be part of the movie, especially given the strong female influence both in front of and behind the camera.(Click on the media bar below to hear Rachel Weisz)
“Oscar-nominated” and “Oscar-winning” are not ordinarily phrases you hear used in conjunction with a Fast & Furious movie, so it was certainly a surprise to see Dame Helen Mirren when she showed up in The Fate of the Furious. But once she had that experience, she couldn’t get enough! Not only will she reprise her character in the next Fast & Furious sequel, she showed up in its first spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw. The four-time Oscar nominee (and one-time winner) told us she was more than just pleasantly surprised when the producers called her about Hobbs & Shaw.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is playing now in theaters.
Chasing the Cure Live is clearly doing something unique, in the way the show is crowdsourcing medical knowledge to come up with diagnoses for real people’s medical mysteries. Of course, figuring out the malady is only half of the issue. After they’ve been diagnosed, these people will need to be treated … and that will cost money. But just as the medical knowledge will be crowdsourced, host Ann Curry is hopeful that the medical community — and maybe even some of the show’s viewers — will help the show’s patients get cured.

Chasing the Cure Live airs Thursday nights on both TBS and TNT.
