It's almost impossible to keep track of all the reboots and sequels hitting the big and small screens lately. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will be here before you know it, Prison Break is coming back to raise your blood pressure yet again in 2017, but the one show you probably won't be seeing resurrected? Freaks and Geeks. The one-season wonder is a fan favorite, practically a poster child for the canceled-too-soon genre - but isn't that part of why we love it so much? Thanks to the Digital HD release of Vice Principals season one, we got to speak with Busy Philipps about why she actually loves that her current show is only formatted as two seasons. She made some great points about the importance of letting things go, especially when it comes to TV. You won't find her campaigning for a Freaks and Geeks reunion. "I feel wary of that track. »

Image Source: HBO If you missed HBO's off-kilter comedy Vice Principals this Summer, you need to carve out four and a half hours of your life immediately. The first season is available on Digital HD now, and I promise you'll be hooked after the first episode - I was, and I'm a tough sell. The series stars Danny McBride and Walton Goggins as Neal and Lee, VPs plotting to take down their school's new principal. I got the chance to chat with Busy Philipps, who plays Neal's constantly annoyed ex-wife, Gale. Since she's already shot the second season (which airs this Spring), she filled us in on all the tidbits she could, including what she thought of the bloody finale. Popsugar: In your mind, how did Neal and Gale meet, and what was their early romance like? Busy Philipps: We actually had a lot of discussion about this; there »

Since the first time I saw The Foot Fist Way, I have been a fan of the work of Jody Hill and Danny McBride. They have a number of other regular collaborators who are part of the wonderful work they’ve created together so far, and you can’t talk about them without also talking about Ben Best or Shawn Harwell or John Carcieri or David Gordon Green or Tim Orr or Joseph Stephens, because they’re all part of what I love about Observe and Report and Eastbound & Down and now Vice Principals. I’ll have more to say about this season once it comes to a close next week, but today, I am struck anew by why I have such a strong reaction to the films that Jody Hill has directed, and I think I finally have a handle on it. I often find myself having a strong »
