Happy Monday, cheeps! In honor of Martin Luther King Day, CNET is, technically, closed -- but that doesn't mean I'm going to leave you deal-less. Indeed, because of yesterday's ah-mazing NFL playoffs, I feel obligated to bring you a similarly amazing TV deal. If those two games weren't enough to whet your appetite for a newer, bigger screen, nothing will. For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the Hisense R7 Series 55-inch HDR 4K TV with Roku for just $299.99. That's $200 off the regular price and a pretty stellar deal on a TV with built-in Roku. Hisense? This Chinese company doesn't have quite the name recognition of TCL, which makes some of CNET's favorite budget TVs. But it's a direct rival, no question, and on paper its screens seem every bit as good. I'm not s
Iron Fist is punchier, kickier, angrier in season 2 trailer

Iron Fist is punchier, kickier, angrier in season 2 trailer

TV and Movies
We got our first look at Danny Rand's return at Comic-Con 2018 and now Netflix has dropped the first official trailer for Iron Fist's second season. It gives us another look at Iron Fist's comic-inspired outfit, Danny's former bestie Davos (who doesn't seem so friendly anymore) and plenty of close-ups of fists being clenched, faces being kicked and even a heavy shot to the groin. The increasing levels of fisticuffs will come as good news to those who criticized the show's first season for playing it safe. You can view the full trailer below.   I told you. Punchier, kickier and at least double the amount of glowing fists. All 10 episodes of Iron Fist season 2 will premiere on Netflix Sept. 7. Below is the official synopsis: 'Danny Rand (Finn Jones), alongside his partner Collee
Here are the four must-see shows in Channel 10’s Pilot Week

Here are the four must-see shows in Channel 10’s Pilot Week

TV and Movies
CHANNEL 10 is giving out new TV shows like Oprah gives away new cars. The TV network will air eight new programs in the next six days as part of its Pilot Week Experiment. The shows are basically auditioning for a permanent spot on our screens and Channel 10 says it will use “audience reaction, social media buzz and ratings” to determine which of the eight shows are popular enough to be given a full run on air next year. Only the most dedicated of couch potatoes will watch all eight shows, so I’m here to help you decide which ones you simply must tune in for. Let me stress I got only a very short sneak peek at each show, like two minutes worth, but some left a far more lasting impression than others. Here are the shows you should definitely check out in the coming days:
Fighting With My Family: A wrestling comedy that suplexes your heart

Fighting With My Family: A wrestling comedy that suplexes your heart

TV and Movies
You might not expect a wrestling movie to make you cry. But Fighting With My Family comes flying off the top rope, bursting with comedy and emotion, and clobbers you right in the feelings. Based on a 2012 documentary about a wrestling-mad family, the new film directed by Steven Merchant recounts the real-life story of WWE champion Paige, born Saraya-Jade Bevis in Norwich, England. Already in the UK's indie grappling circuit, she was spotted by the WWE and went all the way to US stardom. Unfortunately, her even more grapple-mad brother was left behind. That's the dilemma at the heart of Fighting With My Family, which opens with Paige and her brother Zak Zodiac building a community around a love of wresting. But when Paige heads off to the US to join The Rock and friends in the big league
Are your live local channels on a streaming TV service yet?

Are your live local channels on a streaming TV service yet?

By now you've probably considered cutting the cable TV cord to save money on your TV bill. Maybe you're fine without paying for live TV. You watch mostly Netflix and YouTube anyway, and when you want live TV, you just use an antenna. Then again, maybe you want more: a full slate of live TV channels streamed over the internet, including your local ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC stations, without having to futz around with an antenna or cable box. Today you've got plenty of options. Six major services -- DirecTV Now, Fubo TV, Hulu with Live TV, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV and YouTube TV -- stream multiple channels of live TV over the Internet, including local channels. Each has its plusses and minuses, including pricing (starting at $25 per month), features (like cloud DVRs) and user interface, but t
Deadpool 2: The Super Duper Cut is longer but not necessarily better

Deadpool 2: The Super Duper Cut is longer but not necessarily better

TV and Movies
Deadpool 2's home release on Digital HD also marks the public debut of Deadpool 2: The Super Duper Cut, an extended version of the movie that adds new scenes, changes others and brings in even more post-credit scenes.This longer version, which was screened to press and some fans during last month's San Diego Comic-Con 2018, is still Deadpool 2 at heart, so I'll point to my colleague Morgan Little's review of the theatrical release for a deeper dive into the plot as the movie is mostly the same.This cut of the movie is much like the 2014 'Super Sized Version' of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which replaced many of its jokes with alternate takes while otherwise keeping the same story.During my screening, I definitely noticed changes to several scenes, but in a few cases the new gags don

BACHELOR in Paradise couple Megan Marx and Jake Ellis have called it quits after eight months of dating. But the split appears to be far from mutual, with Ellis revealing he hopes the couple can one day “rekindle our special love and come back together”. Marx first confirmed the news in a statement posted to her Instagram story on Tuesday, writing that her split from “biggest hearted” Ellis was “destroying”. “Our first kiss and first date was on a reality TV show — something I’ll always treasure as a beautiful experience and as beautiful memories,” she said.

Our favourite Monterey mums are back with more Big Little Lies

THERE’S something strangely alluring about rich people with problems money can’t solve. Throw in a breathtaking location and several Hollywood heavyweights and it’s easy to see why so many people were gripped with the sudsy drama of Big Little Lies and how Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman) and Jane’s (Shailene Woodley) seemingly perfect lives unravelled to the point of murder. So what’s the skinny on season two, we hear you cry? Let’s kick off with the good news. Everyone is back. And we mean everyone. Now that’s out of the way, time for some spoilers.   JANE HAS A NEW LOVE INTEREST   Shailene Woodley is looking forward to seeing what lies ahead for her character Jane, whose abuser turned out to be Celeste’s husband Perry (Alexander

Every Avengers: Endgame plotline and clue we can find so far

TV and Movies
  Warning: Possible spoilers for Avengers: Endgame ahead. There are a ton of Avengers: Endgame trailers, television ads, and other sneak peeks out there (check them out here), but they're a bit like Taco Bell menu items: They just remix the same few ingredients, over and over. Almost every ad features Thor calling for Stormbreaker (not Mjolnir) and nearly giving an unfazed Captain Marvel a close shave. There's Captain America letting a tear drip down. There's a shot of a variety of Avengers striding forth in white suits a la Star Wars Stormtroopers. But what's really going on here? If you want to go into the three-hour blockbuster unspoiled, stop reading now, because it's time to pick apart the clues Marvel's delivered. Be warned, though: In the past, Marvel has thrown footage into t

‘They’re drunk’: Sam Dastyari makes shock claims about pollies on I’m A Celeb

TV and Movies
Looks like Sam Dastyari is going to keep causing trouble for his former parliamentarians despite his retirement from politics. In a behind-the-scenes I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! clip, the ex-Labor senator is set to make a series of shocking claims about politicians’ drug and alcohol use, even alleging that some MPs are “drunk in the chamber” during parliamentary sittings. During a camp chat with Justin Schofield and Richard Reid, Dastyari said the public would be shocked if they knew about what really happened in Parliament. “The old Labor MPs, the old lefties, all are pot smokers from back in the days, from the seventies, sixties,” Dastyari claimed. Dastyari alleged politicians were drunk ‘all the time’ during question timeSource:Channel 10 “And a lot of the young c
