‘How to Train Your Dragon 3’ Proves How to Finish a Trilogy

While not exactly a golden rule, it is known fact that if a movie does well in the box office, chances are good that it will be followed by sequel and more often than not, we’ve come to expect that the sequel won’t measure up to the original. Add a third movie to the mix and you’re just asking for trouble. With animated movies, the expectations are often even lower. (Is anyone really surprised that the Ice Age movies keep getting worse?)

Believe it or not, the reality TV series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, has been airing on the E! network for ten years now. To celebrate, the network will be airing a month-long Kardash-a-thon: Every Episode Ever marathon starting on August 28 and ending on September 24. From the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (with the exception of the noon-2:00 p.m. block) every episode of every Kardashian TV series will be aired including Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami, Kortney & Kim Take New York, Kourtney & Kime Take Miami, Khloe & Lamar and Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons. (Yes, these are all real TV series.)

This all leads up to a 10 year anniversary special on September 24 where host and executive producer of the series and special, Ryan Seacrest "sits down with Kris, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie to reflect back on the most monumental events in their lives.”

According to the network, “Throughout the years, the family has remained genuine, compassionate, and vulnerable with the viewers and this special will delve into what it’s been like for the family to live all the triumphs and hardships in front of the camera.” At this point the E! network should just change their name to K!
