Hawaii Five-0 boss teases season 8 reset

Following the highly publicized exits of Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park, Hawaii Five-0 is going through a bit of a reset.
With Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua gone, the team has enlisted new members in police academy flunky Tani (Meaghan Rath), former Navy SEAL Junior (Beulah Koale), and Kono’s hubby, Adam (Ian Anthony Dale). However, Five-0 will still feel the void left by Chin and Kono. “There is a feeling of a loss, but I don’t think it’s that profound because there’s always opportunity for those characters to either return or at least return in their mind, in the stories that we tell,” executive producer Peter Lenkov says.
Meanwhile, Five-o task-force leader McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) will reassess his future after suffering radiation poisoning last season. “Clearly it shows that he’s mortal, and it’s going to affect his legacy of what he wants to do post-being a cop,” Lenkov says, teasing that McGarrett may open a restaurant with Danny (Scott Caan). He’ll also get a new partner: a police dog. Who needs girlfriends when you can have man’s best friend? Check out our full interview with Lenkov below:

TV Review: ‘Ghosted,’ Starring Adam Scott and Craig Robinson

Craig Robinson and Adam Scott star in this paranormal buddy-cop comedy about a mall security guard and a disgraced professor who are recruited by a shadowy government agency to investigate a mysterious disappearance. If that already sounds ridiculous, that’s the point; the sitcom is a lightweight spoof of science-fiction infosec thrillers that speeds through plot […]

New York Film Festival’s 55th Edition Hopes to Make a Strong Case for Cinema

For an event that doesn’t hand out prizes, host swag suites or foster an acquisitions market, the New York Film Festival remains a remarkably essential event on the movie calendar.

New Session EZ IPA Is Everything You Always Wanted in an IPA

Life’s hard enough. Your beer should be EZ.
Full Sail Brewing Co. today announced the release of Session EZ IPA, the newest member of the Session family of beers. It’s everything you always wanted in an IPA, only less. Wait. Less? You got that right. It’s an unfiltered IPA with all the aromatic hops, fruit notes and citrus vibe that you and your taste buds desire – minus the mouth-puckering bitterness or the high-octane ABV. After all, it’s not called EZ for nothing.
“Our IPAs are always well received, but we’re not ones to rest on our laurels, or on our hops for that matter,” says Full Sail Brewmaster Jim Kelter. “New Session EZ IPA is a well-balanced, easy-drinking beer that’s not bitter, while fully packed with tropical and citrus aromas.”

Karl Strauss Throws an Indie Beer Celebration During San Diego Beer Week!

The spirit of collaboration is alive and well in San Diego’s vibrant brewing community. To celebrate this camaraderie, Karl Strauss Brewing Company rallied together 30+ independent San Diego breweries to throw an epic party during San Diego Beer Week! Introducing Collabapalooza, a beer festival featuring one-off collaboration beers and rare releases from participating breweries.
Since helping start the city’s craft beer scene in 1989, Karl Strauss Brewing Company has been committed to supporting the San Diego community. One way they demonstrate this support is by partnering with other local, independent breweries to brew & release collaboration beers that often raise awareness for local causes.
 “Collab brews give us a chance to work with our talented friends in the industry who we’ve known and admired for years, and make something special together. At the heart of it, we’re beer fans, and not only do we want to make good beer, but we want to drink good beer made by others too. It’s been awesome to watch this event come together and see so many independent brewers within our community jump on board and collaborate with one another. I’m stoked to try all the unique brews we co-create!” –Paul Segura, Brewmaster, Karl Strauss Brewing Company

Meet Taylor Corona, Oconee Brewing’s Renaissance Woman

Walk into Oconee Brewing’s tap room in Greensboro, Georgia, and you’ll find a former Air Force mechanic, yoga instructor, roller derby player, mom, and a graduate in anthropology — and that’s all in one person: Taylor Corona. Corona, an assistant brewer for this upstart independent brewery near Georgia’s beautiful Lake Oconee, is a bit of a Renaissance woman.
“I got interested in brewing after a conversation with my anthropology professor when I was a student at Clemson,” says Corona.
To understand Corona’s long and varied path to brewing, we need to back up and start with her stint in the U.S. Air Force. She joined right after high school.

Think Consolidation Can’t Hurt Beer? Watch John Oliver’s Take

“Corporate Consolidation” can be a snooze-worthy term. But if you caught Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” Sunday, Sept. 24, you may have walked away with a headache when you realized how mergers and acquisitions have real-world impacts on things you care about, like beer.
The airline industry takes a beating during Oliver’s segment. He cites a CNN report that shows in 2000, the U.S. had 10 “large airlines” (American, TWA, America West, US Airways, Delta, NWA, United, Continental, AirTran, Southwest) — but today, there are four “mega airlines” who control more than 80 percent of the U.S. market (American, Delta, United, Southwest). Oliver’s point is that a dramatic decline of competition is hurting the customer — like baggage fees, which netted airlines about $540 million a decade ago to $4.2 billion in 2016 (according to the Bureau of Transportation Services).
(READ: If Taste is All You Care About, You’re Missing the Point)
“You may be angry with the service you get from airlines, but thanks to consolidation, they don’t really need to give a sh*t what you think,” he quips.

Winning a Medal at the Great American Beer Festival is All About Style

It’s that time of year again. The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and more importantly, that means I get to wear puffy vests again. Like, with every outfit. It’s sort of my thing.
But I’m not here, sadly, to chat about puffy vests. I’m actually here to discuss one of my absolute favorite cities in the world, Denver, and the upcoming inundation of seemingly unquenchable beer fanatics who will be descending, once again, on the Mile-High City, as it does every year in early October.
It’s time for the Great American Beer Festival (GABF), the largest beer competition and festival in the United States. Hundreds of breweries. Thousands of beers. Pretzel necklaces, tap takeovers, and the delightful madness that comes with putting this many beer fans in the same geographic area. Let the wild rumpus begin, Denver-style.
