Interview: Season 2 of ‘Legit’ hits close to Jim Jefferies’ life

28 March 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

I feel the need to climb to the top of a mountain and shout at the top of my lungs to watch Legit on Fxx before it falls victim as another show worth your time that couldn’t find its audience in time. It’s smart, edgy, and sweet and comedies like this are few and far between.

Legit isn’t your typical comedy. Standup comedian, Jim Jefferies is trying to do something different, and bring his own sensibilities to the TV comedy realm. “When you’re with your friends,” he explains. “You laugh a little bit, you laugh a little bit, and then something big happens. I think a lot of network sitcoms it’s just laughs per minute. I don’t think they even care how big the laughs are. As long as they can pack so many into that timeline. We have episodes where there’s maybe five, »

Pixar Planning 3D Re-Releases for 'The Incredibles' and 'Ratatouille'

17 March 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney Pixar's director of 3D production, John Hollander, revealed at the 3D Creative Summit in London that the studio is working on 3D conversions of The Incredibles and Ratatouille.

Here's what John Hollander had to say at the summit about The Incredibles, though it isn't known when they may release this 3D version.

"Right now we're working on The Incredibles, which is a lot of fun in 3D. I'm not sure what the release strategy for it will be. It's been an interesting challenge to work on technology because - while the film was released 10 years ago - the technology is even older as it took four years to make."

He also spoke about the Ratatouille 3D conversion, which has already been completed.

"We have a version of Ratatouille, which works really well in 3D and we're trying to figure out exactly what the release strategy for that will be. »

'Legit' Season 2 review: Jim Jefferies' sharp comedy finds its momentum

26 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Legit" might not be Fxx's most popular comedy, but it should be one of them. After a critically acclaimed first season, the Jim Jefferies-starring series is only sharper, funnier and more brutally heartwarming in Season 2.

Though Wednesday's (Feb. 26) premiere episode isn't as jarring or as uplifting as Season 1's, "Legit" finds its groove much easier in Season 2 than it did last year. The characters of Jim, Billy (DJ Qualls) and Steve (Dan Bakkedahl) feel lived in here, and the episodes feel like one part of a larger story instead of just funny jokes conceived as episodes, which is more akin to "Louie."

In fact, it's hard to compare "Legit" to much of anything on television right now, and that's part of what is so exciting about it. After viewing the first four episodes, it's clear that Jefferies and co-creator Peter O'Fallon aren't afraid to push the bounds of what is politically correct on television. »

'Legit' Season 2 teases: Life is going downhill for Jim and Steve

21 February 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Legit" didn't leave main characters Jim (Jim Jefferies) and Steve (Dan Bakkedahl) in the best places at the end of Season 1, and life doesn't get much better for them in Season 2. Still, according to the cast, watching their downward spirals is going to be so much fun for viewers.

Zap2it visited the Venice, Calif., set of "Legit" in November when Jefferies, DJ Qualls, Bakkedahl and creator Peter O'Fallon were shooting one of the final episodes of Season 2. As they later teased at their 2014 TCA Winter Press Tour panel, this season will deal with Jim suffering from sex addiction and Dan being an alcoholic. It's not going to be a pretty sight.

"The career's going downhill this season," Jefferies tells Zap2it and select other outlets on the set visit. "I might be a bit more famous next season if we get a third season. All of our lives are »

2014 Best Super Bowl Commercials features ads directed by David Gordon Green, Nicolas Winding Refn and more

3 February 2014 7:48 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With 111.5-million U.S. viewers, and a further 7.3-million in Canada, Super Bowl Xlviii was the most-watched in history. The commercial spots were the most expensive for any TV broadcast in any given year, and there were plenty of big name stars and A-list directors who helped create these very expensive advertisements. John Hillcoat, director of The Road, helmed the spot for Coke. The minute long ad featuring a multilingual rendition of “America the Beautiful” was refreshing to many, but left a bitter taste in the mouth of conservative pundits. Bruce Willis and Fred Armisen get close for Hyundai, and prolific music video and film director, Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go), re-teamed with U2 for the Bank of America “Invisible spot”(Romanek directed U2 in an Apple commercial in 2004). The small screen rarely attracts this many big screen filmmakers in one night, so we decided to vote on our »

Super Bowl 2014: Best and Worst Commercials

2 February 2014 8:58 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

This was not the best Super Bowl for commercials (or football)! You know it’s an off year when two of the most memorable spots involve Greek yogurt. That’s just a rather bleak landscape in general, “live culture” notwithstanding. Meanwhile, my favorite healthy snacks Doritos and M&Ms, which usually bring it hard for the Super Bowl, barely registered. Below, 2014′s Best and Worst ads:

The Super Bowl doubled as throwback Sunday for RadioShack, with the brand unveiling a hilarious new ad that pays tribute to the most beloved celebrities from '80s pop culture. From Hulk Hogan to Chucky, the '80s superstars invade and ransack a typical RadioShack retail outlet (the rampage meant to assure customers that the chain will no longer be stuck in the past). At only 60 seconds, the ad was an overload of nostalgic randomness; here's a breakdown of every '80s reference we spotted, in roughly the order of appearance:Loverboy, "Working for the Weekend" (audio) Olympic champion Mary Lou RettonJason, »
