FLORIDA GIRLS Comedy Series From THE MICK Producer Gets Picked By Pop

Laura Chinn has served as a writer and producer on The Mick and has appeared on Young & Hungry among other positions for various other projects. Now, Chinn is going to star in and executive produce a new show she has created called Florida Girls. Pop recently ordered 10 episodes of the show and it could be fun. Here’s a synopsis:

Florida Girls focuses on four girls living in Small Town, Florida who confront their stagnant lives when their only ambitious friend moves away to follow her dreams. It follows the four girlfriends who are partying under the poverty line while navigating very relatable problems as they try to better their situations. Living in a dilapidated beach town full of alcoholics, these street-wise women haphazardly attempt to find self-worth and learn to “adult” in a society that deems poor, uneducated women as valueless. Their backbone ultimately lies within their tight-knit, non-judgmental and loving friendship.

I don’t know that it’s my cup of tea, but I know some people who will probably enjoy this one. There’s no word on when the show will air, but here’s what Chinn said about why she’s excited for this show:

I am so excited to make Florida Girls with Pop. I grew up in Florida and have always wanted to share my wildly fun and truly insane experiences in a state that is so much more than just: Florida Man on Bath Salts Head-Butts Car, Slaps Fire Chief.

Watch: Man Recreates THE OFFICE Opening With His Dog

If you like The Office and dogs, congrats, you're like a significant portion of the human population. You'll also, by default, love this video in which a man used his dog to recreate the opening to The Office. It's not an incredibly faithful recreation, but dammit, it's good enough for that dog to get some approval from strangers on the internet:

Man Brings Anime Body Pillow To Graduation Ceremony, Has Bright Future Ahead Of Him

I believe the children are our future, and the future is looking worse every day. In a hilarious, but certainly weird moment at the Cal Poly Pomona commencement ceremony, a graduate emerged from the crowd and received his diploma with his waifu body pillow there to help celebrate the festivities (via Kotaku):

I think the most impressive thing about this is the guy doesn't even acknowledge it, which then forces everyone around him to act like this is a natural thing occurring. Maybe it is? For his sake I hope not, as I would hate to be the guy who years after college people stumble into and be like "hey you're the weird anime pillow guy". Of course, if he's owning it this well in these photos, chances are he's not all that concerned with that type of branding. Here's to the future, I guess?

Kenpachi Zaraki Gets Cool Fan Art From Naughty Dog Artist

Many fans of Bleach love Kenpachi Zaraki. He’s a boss to put it lightly, and if you read the 1000 Year Blood War arc, you know how crazy his shikai and bankai are. I’m sure many fans will be sad to not see him for more than a few minutes, if at all, in the upcoming movie. However, Frank Tzeng from Naughty Dog shared an awesome rendering of the crazy captain on ArtStation. Sadly, this is only some fan art, but maybe this could lead to a new big Bleach game (one can dream)? I personally would love a 2D Fighter (one that’s better balanced than the Wii game) or maybe a Dynasty Warriors-esque game.

This Dude Realizes He’s On THE CARBONARO EFFECT But Can’t Remember The Show

Have you ever wondered what happens when someone realizes they're on The Carbonaro Effect? I definitely have, because I feel like the show is popular enough now most people would have to realize what's happening like ten minutes into his weird tricks to regain their sanity. Apparently, it doesn't happen as often as I would assume, but it does happen as Michael revealed a prank that ended abruptly when the guy realized this trippy situation was very similar to a TV show he watched with his sister. Check it out below, and watch the guy slowly realize he's on television:

Side note, because I feel like this is just a weird factoid to bring up, I first watched The Carbonaro Effect in Joey's house three years ago hours after I met him for the first time in real life, so I always think of that moment when I watch this show. 

New WONDER WOMAN 1984 Photo Features Gal Gadot in Full Costume

new-wonder-woman-1984-photo-features-gal-gadot-in-full-costume-social.jpg

A new photo has been released for Wonder Woman 1984 and it gives us our first look at Gal Gadot in full costume. The photo was taken at the Watergate Hotel Whiskey Bar, which is where they were shooting the film. 

The costume looks pretty much the same. If there is one thing that I notice it's that it seem a bit brighter in color. When previously talking about the film, director Patty Jenkins said:

 

"[Wonder Woman is an] optimistic and positive character. This film set in the '80s, she has to deal with the temptation of our world, and face extraordinary odds."

The sequel is set to introduce Cheetah (Kristen Wiig) as the villain and Narcos star Pedro Pascal will also have a lead role. We just don't know what that role is. Then, of course, Chris Pine is back as Steve Trevor. 

The screenplay was written by director Patty Jenkins, Geoff Johns, and Dave Callaham. The film will be released on November 1, 2019.

Popular Tabletop Game CARCASSONNE Is Coming To Nintendo Switch

Tabletop gaming is a great hobby, although for some it can be rather hard to keep up with. Coordinating times to play and locations to meet is always a chore, and sometimes you never know when you'll have an hour to kill and play a game with friends. Asmodee understands that, and is bringing one of its most popular games to Nintendo Switch.

Carcassonne is coming to the Switch later this year, and if you've never played it before, you should! Check out a quick trailer below and continue reading:

Asmodee Digital added there are plans to bring more tabletop games to the Switch, which means we could see Catan, Ticket To Ride, Colt Express, Pandemic, and so many other great tabletop games of the past couple decades appear on the platform. Personally, I'm super stoked because I love playing my Switch in tablet mode, and also love playing tabletop with friends. 

Here's hoping the launch later this year is successful because I'm banking on the Switch being a big haven for future Tabletop games.
