‘Review 2×04: Cult, Perfect Body’ Review

21 August 2015 3:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“It’s easy. You find some vulnerable people, you isolate them, you exploit them financially. Then, rivers of blood.”

Lucille calls it right from the get-go. When a man about to open a CrossFit gym asks Forrest what it’s like to be a cult leader he might as well start chiseling tombstones. Forrest himself even admits, all of five minutes into ‘Cult; Perfect Body,’ that founding a vapid, financially predatory cult with the assistance of his girlfriend(whose death he mourns while still referring to her as “Mrs. Greenfield”) has driven him mad with power. The cult itself is a fabulous joke, Forrest’s unconscious sublimation of his show’s pointlessness into an equally pointless quest to “live a five-star life.” He mocks their credulity while feeding them the same ethos he uses to justify his monstrous behavior as the host of Review, everything in his life twisted and absorbed by his television persona. »

Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel on 'Crash Test' and the tyranny of @Fatjew

18 August 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel have plenty in common: endless improv chops, an appreciation for terrible cinema (Scheer hosts the podcast "How Did This Get Made?" about lame movies; Huebel hosts the La Upright Citizens Brigade revue "The Shit Show" where guests discuss their worst performances and gigs), and now, the experience of performing together on a giant glass bus. Their new special "Crash Test" sees the comics entertaining an audience on a large party bus as it travels through Los Angeles. On their journey, they meet fellow comics Aziz Ansari, Andy Daly, Rob Corddry, Aubrey Plaza, Natasha Leggero, Jack McBrayer, Thomas Lennon, Ian Karmel, and more. It's a wild ensemble held together by Scheer and Huebel's vaudevillian stamina. We caught up with Scheer and Huebel to discuss friendship in the comedy community, the greatness of bad movies, and what to think of the plagiarism scandal surrounding Twitter star Josh Ostrovsky, »

‘Review 2×03: Falsely Accused, Sleep With Your Teacher, Little Person’ Review

15 August 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“The farther you go, the smaller you get.”

There can be no question as to whether or not Forrest’s journey to review life’s wonders and horrors is one of attrition. Piece by piece, bite by bite, Thursday by Thursday, Forrest MacNeil is dying before our eyes. The episode’s third act literally diminishes Forrest, first placing him among gigantic exaggerations of daily life and then pushing him to his knees even as real loss tears the structure of his childhood and family further apart.  We’ve seen him scoring drugs with teenagers, pressuring women to make love in airplane bathrooms, destroying his marriage for no real reason, and now it appears that the momentum of his awful life is simply too great to escape. Not that he doesn’t try.

When Josh and Tina (full credit to Tina, presumably) frame him for burning down a sorority house and »

Top 5 TV: Robots, Race Relations & the Return of 'Review'

3 August 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Every day, small-screen addicts have the chance to check out dozens upon dozens of offerings: network police procedurals, basic-cable sketch shows, late-night hosts gaming with their guests, streaming sitcoms, Britcoms and rebooted series, premium-channel prestige dramas, off-brand reality TV and those unclassifiable oddities that reside left of the virtual dial. But here at Rolling Stone's new column, we're zeroing in on and counting down the five best moments of the viewing week — from the scenes everyone's been talking/recapping/tweeting about to the underseen, undersung performances and undeservedly neglected episodes you might have missed. »

‘Review 2×01: Bare-Knuckled Brawl, Blackmail, Glory Holes’ Review

1 August 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“The destruction of my life was anything but pointless.”

With those words from ever-optimistic host Forrest MacNeil, the exquisite train wreck that is season 2 of 2014′s surprise hit, Review, gets underway. Forrest is back and as full of bluster and forced good cheer as ever, convinced that his having shredded his personal life on broadcast television has inspired viewers to truly live. Any Daily sells Forrest as a robot constantly forcing itself to smile through the accumulated misery of a hundred miserable, avoidable mistakes made in full knowledge of the fallout. Seeing that Forrest has lapsed back into his manic belief in his show’s mission rather than pursuing the moment of clarity he had at the end of season 1 is truly and hilariously crushing.

Forrest’s attempts to insulate himself from further harm somehow make the whole mess even sadder. He begins his return to television by showcasing the veto button, »

Paul F. Tompkins and Andy Daly Discuss Review, Podcasts, and Having a Career That’s Supposed to Be Fun in and of Itself

30 July 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Paul F. Tompkins and Andy Daly are two among the handful of comedians most closely associated with podcasting. Though they both have wonderful podcasts in their own right — "Spontaneanation" and "The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project," respectively — Tompkins and Daly became known as two of the most sought-after guests during comedy podcasts' first wave. And their careers, which were doing just fine beforehand, have boomed as a result. With the second season of Andy Daly’s Review premiering on Comedy Central tonight and Paul F. Tompkins back as Mr. Peanutbutter in season two of BoJack Horseman, Vulture had the two comedians and good friends interview each other. They discuss their variety of projects, being the face of a show, and, of course, podcasting. Enjoy!  Andy Daly: Alright, where are you now, Paul? Paul F. Tompkins: I am at my home. I just made it home. I was out exercising, »

Andy Daly on 'Review' season 2: 'Forrest is even more committed to this show'

30 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Review" was one of the most pleasant TV surprises of 2014, not because we didn't expect fun stuff from star and producer Andy Daly, but because Comedy Central had sat on the show for nearly a year, and then premiered it with minimal fanfare. What seemed like a dump job was instead a delight: a sort of serialized sketch comedy show, held together by Daly as "reviewer of life" Forrest MacNeil, a blandly cheerful doofus willing to experience and then review whatever his audience asked him to. Over the course of the first season, Forrest got addicted to cocaine, ate 15 pancakes in one sitting, had to divorce his wife, then eat 30 pancakes in one sitting, accidentally caused his father-in-law to die in outer space, possibly killed another driver in a road rage incident, and bit by bit watched his entire life burn to the ground for the sake of the show. »

Meet the creator of Review – Comedy Central's best-kept secret

30 July 2015 5:17 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Critically lauded but under the radar of many, Andrew Daly’s Review became a cult TV hit last year. Now as season two starts he explains its oddly captivating human-car-crash appeal

Watching the trailer for the new season of Review, which returns to Comedy Central 30 July made me painfully, distractingly sad. That’s probably not the response one should have to a teaser hinting at several new episodes of a very funny show, but Review is a special case.

The finale of the show’s first season capped off a shockingly effective dramatic arc for hapless protagonist Forrest MacNeil, a man convinced he is capable of reviewing all life experiences for the benefit of the viewing public on his show, Review. Andrew Daly, a comedy veteran, nerd favorite, and mainstream “that guy” (known for his roles as announcer Dick Pepperfield in Semi-Pro and Principal Cutler on Eastbound & Down) credits the »

Review Season 2 Review

29 July 2015 4:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Cable has treated writers, directors, and actors kindly for a good long time now, but in terms of volume, no group may have benefited more from the shift toward small-scale television than comedians. From Lucy, to Cosby, to Seinfeld, having your own show used to mean committing half of your year to a network’s schedule. Now, bite-sized season orders and fracturing markets mean that the spoils of cable can be shared by more comedic voices than ever. Comedy Central’s Review was one of last year’s best, laugh-out-loud funniest surprises, and Thursday’s premiere gives little reason to expect anything less than an equally hysterical Season 2.

The secret to Review’s success (which also helps distinguish the show from the Australian series on which it is based) is that it’s the purest delivery system for the mad genius of comedian Andy Daly. »

“Out of the Crossfire, beyond Hardball, this is Crossballs!”

A parody of political debate shows, Crossballs has comedians pose as experts in their field to discuss the issue of the day and pits them against real life experts who are not aware of the farce debate they are participating in. The comedians argue both sides of an issue, be it ridiculous or not, and mine comedy from taking the issue to absurd lengths and goading reactions from the real experts.

Each episode is moderated by Chris Tallman (as a Chris Matthews type), who introduces »

'Battlefield Earth' is no longer the funniest thing to result from Scientology

19 July 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Living in La is enormous fun. Or at least, the potential for enormous fun is always there, provided you actually pay attention and go to things and get out of the house and actually take advantage of the various amazing opportunities that are around. The Ucb Theater is a place I should spend more time. No two ways about it. There are all sorts of things that happen there that I would love to see. Some of those, I hear later or see later, and thank god they make the effort to record so much of it, because I just listened to two of the funniest hours I've heard this year, and it is well worth your time to seek it out. Here's something from the official website of "The Dead Authors Podcast": 826 National is a nonprofit organization that provides strategic leadership, administration, and other resources to ensure the »

Watch: 'Review' Critic Andy Daly Holds Mock Press Conference To Announce Season 2 Return

1 July 2015 12:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Comedy Central's mock press conference declared an end to the #FindForrest campaign. After Forrest MacNeil (Andy Daly) quit his job as life critic at the end of "Review" Season 1, the fictional show moved mountains to find him and ensure his return. Not a critic of art, but a critic of life, Forrest will continue to review all of life's intense experiences by living through them.  Read More: The Stealthy Genius of Andy Daly's New Comedy Central Series 'Review' During the panel, an audience member asks, "Why are you coming back to this insane job?" The montage of ridiculous experiences, including a tiger attack, drug addiction, and space exploration gone wrong, made it clear that sound logic was not behind his return. At MacNeil's expense, he will continue to provide a public service -- because although the knowledge he provides may be questionable, "Review" is always good for a laugh. »

'Review' premiere, 'Key & Peele' return lead Comedy Central summer plans

20 May 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Riding an impressive hot streak of originals, Comedy Central is looking to continue that momentum with a slew of summer premieres and returns including the long-awaited -- by some people, at least -- return of "Review." Starring Andy Daly as life reviewer Forrest MacNeil, "Review" was my No.2 show of 2014 and it came in at No.4 on Sepinwall's Top 10. The first season, which had already been held for a while, premiered last March and was done by the start of May. Season 2 premieres on Thursday, July 30 at 10 p.m. and Comedy Central's season description teases life experiences including "bare-knuckle brawling, joining the mile high club, and even leading a cult." Excellent. What of the other premieres? *** Created by Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, "Another Period" is a Gilded Age satire featuring Christina Hendricks, Michael Ian Black, David Koechner, Jason Ritter and more and it'll premiere on Tuesday, June 23 at 10:30 p. »
