Outlander season 3 episode 3 review: All Debts Paid

Kayti Burt Sep 25, 2017

There's tragedy in the latest, slightly unsatisfying Outlander season 3 episode. Major spoilers ahead...

This review contains spoilers.

3.3 All Debts Paid

This is the third episode in a row that sees Claire and Jamie living lives apart, but it is the first that truly captures just how much life they will live and endure without one another.

It is Claire’s storyline that especially hammers home this point, as we see her life churn monotonously along for much longer than Jamie’s (at least thus far in the storytelling). Yes, there are points of happiness — Brianna, as well as Claire’s job as a surgeon — but, at least in this episode, her time away from

Bethesda plans to develop more games for Nintendo Switch

Matthew Byrd Sep 25, 2017

It sounds like you can expect most future Bethesda titles to appear on the Nintendo Switch, which is nice...

We were certainly shocked to learn that Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are going to make their way to the Nintendo Switch, but according to Bethesda's vice president of marketing and communication, Pete Hines, those ports are just the beginning.

Kirsten Howard Sep 14, 2017

Crackle's most-watched original drama Snatch, starring Rupert Grint, is finally heading to UK telly...

When Crackle decided to reboot Guy Ritchie's Snatch for TV, plenty of people dismissed it, thinking it wouldn't amount to much. Since it debuted in March, however, the Rupert Grint-starring crime tale has become the streaming service's most-watched original drama series.

‘Snatch’ Review: One Punch From Brad Pitt Had More Power Than Crackle’s New TV Show

‘Snatch’ Review: One Punch From Brad Pitt Had More Power Than Crackle’s New TV Show
It’s been 16 years since Guy Ritchie’s London crime story, “Snatch,” first debuted in the U.S., and, while the black comedy pulled in a decent sum, its primary accomplishment was of a cult fandom (and earning Guy Ritchie a shot at the big time). With that in mind, I don’t feel too bad for only remembering a few key moments from a film built on a sharp wit and distinct characters:

Alan Ford’s thick, creepy glasses; Dennis Farina’s crass American foil to all those classy Brits; Jason Statham proving he can do more than just beat the hell out of his co-stars; the tragic fate of Benicio del Toro’s Franky Four Fingers; and, of course, the sole iconic element of Ritchie’s first major studio film (aside from ultra slo-mo fight scenes): Brad Pitt’s gibberish-spouting gypsy boxer with a devastating right hook,

TV Review: ‘Snatch’ on Crackle, Starring Rupert Grint

TV Review: ‘Snatch’ on Crackle, Starring Rupert Grint
Guy Ritchie’s 2000 film “Snatch” would not be my first pick for a movie that could be massaged into a television franchise — one with 10 hourlong episodes in the bag and possible future seasons lurking on the horizon. The film is a comedy of capers, where crooked hustlers from every walk of life descend on London to pursue their own selfish ends — whether that’s a caravan, a dog, a couple thousand pounds, or a diamond the size of a fist. It’s a film dependent on a tight, expertly woven narrative to feel like more than a mess — and because of its showy, razor-sharp editing, it makes for a violent urban romp that is ineffably cool, even as it reveals its characters’ fundamental, pathetic stupidity.

Snatch,” the Crackle show, imports the general subject matter — small-time crooks, jewels, fixed underground boxing matches — and visual and auditory style of the film — smash cuts, ballsy

Snatch Season 1 Review

Two episodes were provided for review prior to broadcast.

Few directors have enjoyed an opening one-two like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, Guy Ritchie’s crime capers that starred lovable rogues exploring the underbelly of London. The latter is now being adapted into a TV series by the beautifully-named network Crackle, but as it turns out, it has little to do with its namesake, telling a fresh story in modern London with a new all-star cast who’ve walked straight out of the pages of a girl’s fantasy scrapbook.

Where Ritchie’s Snatch gave us tough guys like Vinnie Jones and Jason Statham, here we get hunky Luke Pasqualino of Skins fame, Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick and even Ron Rupert Grint in the role of aristocratic bumbleton Charlie Cavendish-Scott. Seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if Hoult, Radcliffe and Harington are lined up for future episodes.

Exclusive: See 'Gossip Girl' Star Ed Westwick as a Fiery Cuban Gangster in 'Snatch' Sneak Peek
Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick is a long way from the Upper East Side in his new Crackle series, Snatch.

In Et’s exclusive sneak peek at Thursday’s series premiere, Westwick’s Sonny Castillo, a fiery and ruthless Cuban gangster, is counting his cash when his “moll,” Lotti (Phoebe Dyvenor), pesters him about getting her fair cut of the earnings from his London club, El Flamingo.

“Always with the drama, Lotti,” Sonny sneers. “You need to center your fire, baby girl.”

“Yeah, you’re right,” Lotti agrees, grabbing a handful of cash and dipping it into a burning candle before tossing it in the air. “I’ll torch this place to the ground with you in it.”

Skins: revisiting E4’s teen anthology 10 years on

Caroline Preece Jan 25, 2017

Skins debuted on E4 10 years ago. We revisit a bold and unique adolescent drama that kick-started countless careers...

It’s been a decade since Skins, E4’s controversial teen drama, premiered. At the time, it was a source of anxiety for parents about what teenagers were getting up to when they weren’t looking, but for television executives it was pure gold. It achieved that rare feat - it got young people to watch and talk about it - and, after seven years of drinking, drugs and general debauchery, it bowed out in 2013.

Rupert Grint’s Hustler Hits Up The London Crime Scene In First Trailer For Snatch

Though it hasn’t garnered the same traction as, say, 24: Legacy or FX’s acclaimed Fargo, Crackle is in the process of rebooting Snatch, a serialized version of Guy Ritchie’s cult crime caper that’s due to premiere in exactly two months’ time.

Comprised of 10 episodes in total, the Snatch of 2017 is headed up by former Harry Potter star Rupert Grint. He’ll play Charlie Cavendish, a budding hustler who makes a foray into London’s seedy crime scene, only to find himself in deep with the sharks. The high-stakes world of organized crime awaits, though Crackle’s interpretation looks to be a much more refined version of Ritchie’s 2000 original.

That’s a little disappointing, particularly when you consider that the gritty, unforgiving world of Snatch is part and parcel of the film’s charm, but we’re willing to lend Crackle and the creative team the
