MyMusic season 2 has premiered on YouTube, and Hypable has had a sneak peak at episodes 2×02 and 2×03. Will the new season be totally “culkin”?

MyMusic is a YouTube sitcom in the style of The Office. The show is set at a music production company, featuring a range of off-beat and hilarious characters. The series was created by online producers Benny and Rafi Fine, who are famous for their Kids React series, and have over 5.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

MyMusic stars Adam Busch (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Grace Helbig (Daily Grace), Toby Turner (Annoying Orange), Jack Douglass (YouTube’s Jacksfilms), Chris Clowers, Tania Gunadi, Lainey Lipson, Jarrett Sleeper and Mychal Thompson.

‘MyMusic’ season 2 premieres:

The premiere episode of MyMusic season 2 sees the world’s most dysfunctional music production company returning to work. It seems that everyone is back where we remember them – that means Intern 2 is once again showing off his skills as a footrest.

After dealing with the fall out from Loco Uno, the team is scaling back from production to focus on podcasting (Indie: “You’ve probably never heard of it”).

The new season sees a new office space (yes, it really did burn down last time), which presents its own set of problems for the different characters. Somehow in the move, Metal has lost his desk (again), and Idol’s desk is so close to Techo and Dubstep’s that she can’t hear herself think. Cue drama.

And it turns out, not everyone is exactly the same. Hip Hop has returned to work determined to show on the outside what he is on the inside, which is a total nerd. And he’s a Nerdfighter – yeah, you read that right.

We are also introduced to a brand new character – Country, who is Idol’s cousin (or “identical cousin”, as they will sing off-key more than once in the premiere). “You’ll never get sick of us,” says Idol. And you know what, we probably won’t, because the Fine Brothers have once again managed to make what should be an annoying shtick into a giggle-inducing gag. Say what!?

As usual, some of the best moments of MyMusic are in the details that other shows would not bother with – the hilarious tag-lines shown during the interview portions, and the self-aware references to the viewing audience. Fans of MyMusic season 1 will not be disappointed with this premiere episode, and we can’t wait for more.

‘MyMusic’ season 2:

Hypable has seen episode 2×02 and 2×03, but unfortunately our lips have to remain sealed. What we can tell you is MyMusic is only getting better, and that season 2 will feature new additions to the cast, such as Lee Newton as Country (SourceFed) and Paul Butcher (Zoey 101).

And yes, the episodes we have seen have been totally “culkin.” For a sneak peak at what it is like behind-the-scenes, check out these backstage photos from the filming of season 2.

New episodes of MyMusic will premiere every Tuesday at 3pm ET on YouTube

The Fine Brothers are looking to make the second season of their YouTube sitcom even more interactive than the first. Creator Benny Fine says, “This season we’re taking the interactivity up a notch and creating more opportunities for fans to integrate with the MyMusic story universe.”

Fans can expect the cast to appear at live events, host podcasts, and feature on the MyMusic blog, in addition to the 80 social media accounts that link into the story. MyMusic takes the idea of transmedia to a whole new level, but just like all good transmedia elements, fans can also enjoy the series without following the blogs and social media accounts.

A new Fifty Shades Darker trailer was released on Wednesday and ups the sexy for the sequel.

Ana and Christian are getting back together in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, but the former has a couple of new rules: No secrets, way less BDSM. Christian agrees, but new problems come to light: Is someone from the millionaire’s past haunting him?

Dakota Johnson continues to bring a fun vibe to Ana Steele, playing the awkward lines with self awareness better than Kristen Stewart ever did as Bella in Twilight. “Have dinner with me,” Christian begs. “Okay fine, I will have dinner with you, because I’m… hungry,” Ana replies. The line could come off corny if executed poorly, but Dakota has a strong hold on playing this character for fun.

Tickets for Fifty Shades Darker are now on sale. Check out a new poster for the movie below:

The Fifty Shades Darker synopsis reads, “When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.”

The movie hits theaters this Valentine’s Day. It stars Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson, Jennifer Ehle, Victor Rasuk, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Bella Heathcote, Kim Basinger and Marcia Gay Harden, and is directed by James Foley.

It’s looking like Nick Robinson will go from battling dinosaurs to battling the process of coming out.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is an excellent coming of age/coming out LGBT YA novel which we’ve raved about here on Hypable before. Nick Robinson is definitely an actor we can picture in the role, so we can’t wait to see him play the adorable character.

The film is being produced by Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment, who’s responsible for The Maze Runner series, The Twilight Saga, and the upcoming Power Rangers.

What do think of Nick Robinson as Simon?

If you haven’t read it yet, we highly recommend that you do. The book was first published last year:

After you read it, be sure to check out our exclusive interview with Becky Albertalli. Simon was her first novel!

Netflix has unveiled a new Series of Unfortunate Events trailer, showing off Neil Patrick Harris’ excellent portrayal of the evil, wacky, will-stop-at-nothing-to-get-that-money Count Olaf.

Neil Patrick Harris’ ability to convincingly become any person — whether male or female, young or old, ugly or beautiful — becomes abundantly clear in the latest ASOUE trailer. While some of us may’ve been a little skeptical of his casting initially, it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role after seeing previews like this.

The trailer begins with narrator Lemony Snicket (played by Patrick Warburton) warning that the new Netflix show is no delightful watch. Then the focus turns to Olaf and his mission to steal the children’s fortune, left to them by their parents after their untimely deaths:

A Series of Unfortunate Events premieres all eight episodes of its first season on January 13, 2017.

“Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death.”

Another trailer was released two weeks ago — you can watch it here.

Is ‘Unfortunate Events’ looking as good as you hoped?

Harris previously confirmed that each book will be adapted into two episodes of the show. The first season of ASOUE covers the first four books, so presumably season 2 will roughly cover another four books. There are a total of 13 books in Lemony Snicket’s series.
