Hit comedy The Big Bang Theory kicked off Friday at Comic-Con 2014 with a panel featuring the show's writers for the second year in a row. And of course, the writers brought along some fun video to share.
First up was the hot new trailer for . Fans witnessed the world premiere of of footage from the B movie, starring Wil Wheaton and Penny. "He mixed her DNA with that of a killer gorilla. Was it because he loved her? Yes." Watch here:
The Big Bang Theory also brought along a highlight reel. James Earl Jones, Bob Newhart, the re-creation of the planet Dagobah from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, debating the merits of Indiana Jones and preferred gaming consoles, and the quest to buy Comic-Con badges are all here:
The ongoing contract negotiations with CBS/Wbtv and the core cast of "The Big Bang Theory" loomed over Friday (July 25) morning's San Diego Comic-Con panel, or at least the negotiations loomed if you happened to be obsessed with such things. If you're not, the negotiations were a total non-factor in the spirited and amusing give-and-take between the show's writers, moderator Craig Ferguson and the Comic-Con crowd. According to a Deadline.com story, question monitors at the panel prevented Deadline from asking about the negotiations, which raises exactly two issues for me: 1) The writers of "The Big Bang Theory," for the most part, could hardly have less to do with negotiations that are going on far, far, far above their paygrade or job description. Even the highest ranking writers on the panel, folks like co-creator Bill Prady and showrunner Steve Molaro, could hardly have less to do with those negotiations and »

The Big Bang Theory, no surprise, is a major hit with the Comic-Con crowd. When the show’s writers and producers gathered for a panel at the con, they delivered a consistently entertaining panel, with a few surprise guests and a couple of tidbits about the show’s upcoming eighth season.
Things kicked off with an appearance from Garfunkel and Oates (a.k.a. Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci, who played Lucy on Big Bang). The geeky folk duo wrote “If I Didn’t Have You,” the song Howard sang to Bernadette this season, and they serenaded the Ballroom 20 audience »

CBS’ juggernaut comedy “The Big Bang Theory” invaded Comic-Con’s Ballroom 20 on Friday morning, with latenight host Craig Ferguson moderating a lively discussion with the writers and executive producers.
Star Wil Wheaton appeared midway through the panel in an orangutan mask — an homage to “Serial Ape-ist 2: Monkey See, Monkey Kill,” the movie within the show that his character is filming with Penny (Kaley Cuoco) — and the producers showed a spectacularly campy mock trailer from the fictional flick during the session.
There was much talk of “Star Wars” at the panel, given that stars James Earl Jones and Carrie Fisher appeared in one of last season’s most memorable installments — and showrunner Steve Molaro admitted »

Both Carrie Fisher and James Earl Jones are true legends of the Star Wars franchise. The former, of course, played the beautiful and heroic Princess Leia in the original sci-fi franchise, while the latter lent his deep, booming voice to the dark, foreboding presence of Darth Vader. Because one was on the set while the other was doing all his work in a recording booth, however, the two never actually got to meet. that is, until they both guest starred on an episode of The Big Bang Theory. Earlier this morning, the writing staff of the CBS sitcom was on-stage at San Diego Comic-Con, and while discussing the Season 7 episode "The Convention Conundrum" and the cameos made by both Fisher and Jones, showrunner Steve Motaro revealed an interesting new bit of Star Wars trivia. According to the writer, the two actors. time on set was actually the first time that »

Looks like Panem’s resident dictator/asshole President Snow has a little problem on his hands, at least when it comes to propaganda videos. District 13 be hackin’ him, yo. Check out a new video for Francis Lawrence’s upcoming “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1,” due out this November 21st. Besides Donald Sutherland’s President Snow, also standing by (get it?) in the video is Josh Hutcherson and Jena Malone. You know what would make this faux Panem video even cooler? If they had managed to get James Earl Jones to do the “This is Capitol TV” voiceover bit. That would have been so beyond awesome, it would have been awesome-o. »
After a seamless transition from small-screen dramas to big-screen comedies (seriously, what can't this woman do?), Rose Byrne is setting her sights on Broadway. The Damages and Bridesmaids star has joined James Earl Jones and Masters of Sex's Annaleigh Ashford in a revival of George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s 1936 comedy You Can't Take It With You. The play follows two families, the eccentric Sycamores and the straight-laced Kirbys, who are brought together when a Sycamore daughter and Kirby son fall in love. Byrne will play Alice Sycamore, one of the lovebirds and the "normal" daughter in a family of crazies. No word on whether she will also be the only one in the family with an Australian accent, but hey, it worked for Neighbors. »

The first major awards ceremony honoring this past year’s accomplishments on the small screen took place last night as Cedric the Entertainer hosted the 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards from the Beverly Hilton. I’ve always preferred the Critics’ Choice Awards to the Emmys, just because my views tend to line up more with the members of the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. This year was no different, as a number of highly deserving actors, actresses and shows were honored.
Allison Janney was the clear winner last night, taking home two Critics’ Choice TV Awards. The actress won Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her devastating work on Showtime’s Masters of Sex and also tied with Orange is the New Black actress Kate Mulgrew for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance as the title character on CBS’s Mom.
FX’s Fargo also had a great night, »

Some of the biggest shows on television went head to head. Here's who came out on top.
All the hottest names in TV turned out for the 2014 Critics Choice Television Awards on June 19, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Cedric the Entertainer hosted the gala event presented by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, and the night was really a battle between two cable channels.
Premiere pay-cable network HBO had a whopping 18 nominations, but in a show of strength for a smaller cable channel, FX topped that with 19. Meanwhile, the big contenders for individual shows were the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, the CBS drama The Good Wife, FX's crime dramedy Fargo, Showtime's drama series Masters Of Sex and HBO's The Normal Heart, all getting five noms each.
Also, Netflix struck a blow against the traditional television hierarchy with their original series Orange Is The New Black competing in several key categories.
So, with all »

The timing couldn't be more perfect. Not only is today Father's Day, it's also the 20th anniversary of animated classic The Lion King. Yes, Disney's sweeping epic originally hit cinemas on June 15, 1994. How old does that make you feel?
What better way to celebrate this day of dual significance than with some words of wisdom from The Lion King's poppa cat Mufasa? Below, Digital Spy presents eight great quotes from the character so brilliantly brought to life by the soothing voice of James Earl Jones:
"Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope."
"When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connnected in the great Circle of Life."
"You have forgotten who you are and so have forgotten me. »
