Laika – Animation Studio Behind Coraline, Paranorman, The Boxtrolls – Celebrates A Decade of Achievement

Laika, the award-winning animation studio nestled in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, celebrates 10 years of bold and memorable filmmaking this month. For a company whose name means “little barker” in Russian, Portland, Oregon-based Laika has made quite a noise in the global film industry over a relatively short time.

With its world-class filmmaking team, Laika pushes the boundaries of family entertainment and animated movies, redefining what stories can and should be told through the art form.

“When Laika began we had a simple goal: to make movies that matter,” says Travis Knight, Laika’s President and CEO, who also is lead animator and a producer on its films. “Laika is devoted to telling new and original stories in new and original ways.”

“We aspire to make films that are bold, distinctive, and enduring,” Knight continues. “We are committed to telling stories that are thematically challenging, aesthetically beautiful, emotionally resonant,

Summer sitcom rewind: 'The Cosby Show' - 'Theo's Holiday'
We're continuing this periodic summer project where we revisit classic sitcom episode. Last week, we did a "NewsRadio" double feature, and today we're going to talk about one of my favorite episodes of "The Cosby Show," called "Theo's Holiday," coming up just as soon as my corporate headquarters has 49 floors but no phone... Periodically throughout the latter half of the 20th century, various TV genres would be declared dead and buried. Some of them actually stayed dead, more or less, like the Western, while others lay fallow, waiting for the right show to bring the public mood back to it. In the early '80s, the sitcom was the genre being put out to pasture, falling behind dramas of various stripes, from the lofty ambitions of "Hill Street Blues" and "St. Elsewhere" to the soapy environs of "Dallas" and "Dynasty" to the comedy/drama/action mix of "Magnum, P.I.

Glee episode "Bash" opened up on Tuesday night with Rachel (Lea Michele), Sam (Chord Overstreet), Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) walking in a candlelight vigil singing “No One Is Alone.”

Glee Recap

A neighbor of the gang was put into a coma after a hate crime beating. The four friends gather around a New York City lamppost, candles in hand with dozens of others to honor someone who very well could have been one of them. It was their neighbor’s friend, who’d been beaten up on Bleaker St. by some guys driving a pickup truck. Thankfully, he survived, but they note hate crimes are increasing in the city.

Cut from the emotional moment, Rachel is at Funny Girl rehearsal getting a pep talk from the producer. Rachel then asks him if she could push a rehearsal two hours back so that she can do her Midwinter Critique.

Phylicia Rashad Talks Returning To TV, 'Cosby' Reunions & More!

Phylicia Rashad Talks Returning To TV, 'Cosby' Reunions & More!
Phylicia Rashad hasn't been a series regular on television since "The Cosby Show" (and a few of its incarnations thereafter). But Clair Huxtable is a far cry from Dr. Vanessa Young, the character on "Do No Harm" that lured Rashad -- who's done guest spots and spent the majority of her time in theater -- back to primetime.

NBC's "Do No Harm" centers on Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale), a big-shot neurosurgeon with a multiple-personality disorder that can no longer be suppressed by an experimental medication. Now, it's wearing off, and Jason's destructive alter-ego Ian Price is coming out in the evening hours and wreaking all sorts of havoc. Rashad's character Dr. Young plays Jason's boss and a big champion of Dr. Cole, as well. But presumably, that's all about to change.

Below, Rashad talks to The Huffington Post about what drew her back into television, watching her TV kids grow up,

'Cosby' Sisters Open Up About Reuniting On 'Guys With Kids'

'Cosby' Sisters Open Up About Reuniting On 'Guys With Kids'
The Huxtable girls are getting ready to play sisters again on the "Guys With Kids" finale.

Although their characters don't get along very well on the episode, Tempestt Bledsoe -- who plays Marny on the series -- told TV Guide she couldn't have been happier to reunite with Keshia Knight Pulliam, who will play her spoiled sister Bridget.

"I grew up with Keshia. She's like my sister, so we immediately clicked again," Bledsoe told TV Guide. "When producers decided to cast the role they asked me how I'd feel about having Keshia and I said, 'Absolutely!' I think they're fantasizing about having all of 'The Cosby Show' cast pop up."

Pulliam is equally excited about her reunion episode, but emphasized that an actual "Cosby" reunion show won't likely happen. "Mr. Cosby was very clear about wanting to maintain the purity of the legacy," Pulliam said to TV Guide.

A 'Cosby Show' Reunion

A 'Cosby Show' Reunion
It was a "Cosby Show" reunion on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" Friday when Bill Cosby and Tempestt Bledsoe, who played Vanessa Huxtable on the series, sat down on Fallon's couch.

The late night host explained that the "Cosby Show" reunion was a happy coincidence since both guests happened to be booked on the same night. "This is truly surreal for me," Bledsoe said about sitting next to her TV dad after a clip from her show "Guys with Kids" played that featured her talking about sex.

Fallon asked Cosby if it's fun to watch his TV daughter grow up and he replied emphatically, "No!" "When she turns out to be stunning, then you have problems," he explained.

Bledsoe said the two get together often, but Cosby told her not to lie and joked, "Sometimes my checks are late and that's when I see Tempestt."
