Weekly Round-up: Kentucky Fried Flying
Kentucky Flied Chicken - Starting December 1st, select Japan Airlines flights are going to get significantly tastier and help you really make sure you pack on that holiday heft thanks to KFC. Passengers on flights from New York, San Diego, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, London, Frankfurt and Paris will receive a drumstick, chicken breast, cole slaw and flat bread from "Air Kentucky," an elaborate Japanese scheme to plump us up so we are juicy enough to eat upon arrival. Careful though - this deal will turn into the Ghost of Poultry Past on February 28th, so shake a tailfeather.
Archer to Return to FX in January
By: Ramin Zahed
The FX Network has set January 17 (at 10 p.m.) as the return date for its popular animated series Archer. The Emmy and Annie Award nominated series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Judy Greer and Chris Parnell, and proved to be a ratings grabber last season. The third season brought in 32% more viewers (about two million viewers an episode) over Season 2. FX has ordered 13 new episodes for the show’s fourth season. Archer will lead in to the new comedy Legit, starring Australian comedian Jim Jeffries.
Guardians of the Galaxy' Director Shamed
James Gunn, who’s been signed to direct and write Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film (see “’Guardians’ Director to Write”), has been blowing up all over the Internet this week due to a post he put up over a year ago titled “The 50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With,” which contained a variety of controversial comments. This post on Lady Geek Girl and Friends covers it pretty well, and links to the tumblrs that seem to have found the post first. You can get the idea from the headline: “James Gunn is a Sexist, Homophobic Jerk.” Gunn’s original post has now been deleted, but lives on in cache form.

About THE SUICIDE FORECAST
One Insurance-Sales King. Some Very Suspicious Customers. Byeong-wu (RYOO Seung-bum, The Unjust) left the world of professional baseball behind and found success as an insurance salesman. But when one of his clients commits suicide – and there are questions about advice he provided to the insured – his own life spins out of control. As he prepares to defend himself against the pending criminal and internal investigations, he remembers selling life insurance to three suicide survivors, whose financial motives may be suspicious.
Now Byeong-wu must scurry through the city in a frantic attempt to chase these people down. Can he convince them to change their plans – and that life may be worth living – before time runs out?
