Community Season 5: A Hilarious, Bizarre & Brilliant Return to Form [Review - ★★★½]

21 April 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

After a disastrous and messy fourth season that saw original showrunner and creator Dan Harmon fired and ultimately replaced by what seemed like nobody: Community felt ultimately doomed to fail for the last time due to NBC's mismanagement of the series. But then something strange happened. Harmon was re-hired and given the reigns once more to try and pick up the pieces. The results are nothing short of astounding. Community is an American television sitcom created by Dan Harmon that premiered on September 17, 2009 on NBC. The series follows a group of students at a community college in the fictional locale of Greendale, Colorado. Community stars Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong. The series was created by Dan Harmon and airs »

'Hot in Cleveland' Season 5 live premiere: Valerie Bertinelli thinks Betty White is a 'freak of nature'

26 March 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

TV Land's first big success in original sitcoms is aiming to stay hot by starting a season live.

"Hot in Cleveland" begins its fifth round the same way it came back in the middle of its fourth, with stars Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves and Betty White performing the episode as viewers see it (in the Eastern half of the country) Wednesday, March 26. Immediately after, Season 3 of the "Cleveland" spinoff "The Soul Man" will debut the same way, with Cedric the Entertainer and his cast also going live.

Linking the halves of the event, White and Cedric will appear in both series, to be shown on tape on the West Coast but with no modifications. "Hot in Cleveland" normally is done in front of a studio audience, as was the comedy that made Bertinelli famous, "One Day at a Time" ... but she confirms the live-telecast aspect doesn't mean less nerves. »

History Wants More “Vikings”, a “Psych” Send Off and “Modern Family” Heading to Vegas

26 March 2014 4:22 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

BBC America has ordered its first original comedy. Almost Royal follows two distant relations of the British royal family (Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart) who have no useful skills as they take a tour of the United States with a camera crew they hired.

History has ensured TV won’t go without Travis Fimmel for long, ordering a third season of Vikings.

TVLine talked with Chris Carmack about his Nashville character and where his mind is as he heads towards a marriage of convenience, “I honestly believe that he is deluding himself immensely. The career aspect of it is probably one of the biggest reasons he’s deluding himself… But I don’t think we could even remotely like Will if there wasn’t some degree of self-delusion, because what he’s clearly gonna do to this young girl, it’s gonna break her heart – or he’s gonna »

“Flash” Characters Will Cross Over to “Arrow”, “Banshee” Closes Big and “Glee”‘s 100th Episode

18 March 2014 4:50 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

ABC Family has ordered additional seasons of Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy. Additionally, the channel is developing three more dramas, including one about brother and sister tennis stars.

While Arrow still won’t be airing an episode that previews the proposed Flash spin-off, fans will still get a first look as two Flash characters — the S.T.A.R. Labs scientists played by Danielle Panabker and Carlos Valdes — will appear in an Arrow episode. However, Grant Gustin‘s Barry Allen will not come out from his coma until Flash premieres (if it becomes a series).

Tyler Perry‘s latest movie, The Single Moms Club did terribly at the box office. However, that’s not going to stop Own from turning it into a TV series. Apparently, that’s what a The Haves and the Have Nots-sized hit gets you at Own.

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son recap: unfunny men in female fat suits

16 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

On Sunday at 11.25am, Channel 5 is showing an unwanted sequel to an unwanted sequel to an unwanted film

"You've been mommafied!" – Big Momma

The first Big Momma's House movie, where Martin Lawrence dresses up as a flatulent fat old lady, is not a good film by any means. But at least it had Paul Giamatti and Terrence Howard in the supporting cast, doing their best to lift the material. Compared to Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, it's a masterpiece.

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son has nothing going for it. It's not even as fun as Big Momma's House 2. It's an unwanted sequel to an unwanted sequel to an unwanted film. It stretches an already flimsy premise to depressing new lengths. It attempts to pass the baton to a new generation of film-makers, even though the baton is radioactive and caked in human excrement. This film doesn't deserve to be watched once, »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 10th 2014

10 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Perhaps the only news of note this week is that in a move echoing what they did with Breaking Bad, Netflix has swooped in and gained rights to the TV series of From Dusk Til Dawn made in the states for Robert Rodriguez’s new El Rey network cable channel. Netflix will stream the episodes the day after they air in the states every week, curiously they are still billing this as ‘A Netflix Original’ when this isn’t the case necessarily. I have no idea as to the quality of this, the film From Dusk Til Dawn was one of my favourites when I was a teenager but how you drag that out into a ten part TV show I don’t know, let alone a possible second series. I watched the trailer and it looks solid and well-made as opposed to a cheap cash in and features Don Johnson »

Veronica Mars has sprung back to life, and deservedly so

9 March 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The high-school detective drama is the centre of a TV talent vortex linking Freaks And Geeks, Party Down, Gossip Girl and more. But will a big-screen reunion solve its many outstanding mysteries?

Ah, Veronica Mars, how you linger in the memory after all these years. Can it really be seven years since I came back to Los Angeles after a month in England, ready to savour four spicy, bitchy, twisty new episodes of hard-boiled high-school noir on DVR, only to discover that the Paul Rudd-as-mean-jerky-rock star episode had been obliterated by extended news coverage of the ferocious Griffith Park fire of May 2007? Jet-lagged and exhausted as I was, I knelt down and grasped my skull in anguish right there in front of the telly, bathed in the apocalyptic orange flames. It was a very Veronica moment.

This show really put you through it sometimes, both within the drama and without. »

Community Navigates Themes of Friendship and Existential Crisis

28 February 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

A big part of Community’s appeal is its ability to seamlessly traverse the many tones a television sitcom can take in a half-hour. On a dime, Community can turn from broad comedy to dark, wacky situations to bittersweet. These tonal shifts can be alarming to anyone unfamiliar with the series, but to those of us who have stuck around it feels like a reward to watch an episode like “Bondage and Beta Male Sexuality.” It could’ve been the simple story of man trying to score with the woman he has the hots for, but instead we’re treated to an existential crisis and a friendship in need of some attention. It would be easy to imagine these scenarios as devoid of comedy, but Community expertly knows where to sneak in a laugh or two in the most serious of moments.

'Community': Preview the battle for Britta in Thursday's episode -- Exclusive Video

26 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Winter Break is over, and it’s time to file back into the halls of Greendale for a new episode of Community. What will you find in there? A ghostly and ghastly one-man show by Chang (Ken Jeong). A harsh punishment for Abed (Danny Pudi) at the hands of Professor Hickey (Jonathan Banks). And a big battle over Britta. Yes, Professor Duncan (John Oliver) makes his play for the former foot model (Gillian Jacobs) with the help of his buddy Jeff (Joel McHale). But maybe Jeff’s heart isn’t into it. Because maybe it wants Britta for itself. Press pause on Good Luck Chuck, »

Turbo DVD Review

8 February 2014 6:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: David Soren,

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Samuel L. Jackson, Luis Guzman, Bill Hader, Snoop Dogg, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez,     

 Running Time: 96 Minutes

Certificate: PG

A snail wants to be superstar racer. It’s the kind of pitch that could be generated in a studio meeting along with countless other [blank] wants to be [blank]. A penguin wants to be a pilot. A worm wants to be a foot model. A tortoise doesn’t want to be a home owner. Anyone with an ounce of a brain could come up with non-stop plots for life based on the formula of something not being able to do a certain activity and their struggle to prove everyone else wrong. Another word would be “lazy”, and although Turbo isn’t a complete right-off, the plot truly holds the entire film back.

'Community' react: Spoiler alert!

30 January 2014 8:34 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Anyone who’s ever waded into the murky debate surrounding our nation’s increasingly heated spoiler-alert culture, rest assured: This week’s Community feels you.

Titled “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking,” the episode partially revolves around a battle between Abed and Britta, with the latter trying to spoil Game of Thrones Bloodlines of Conquest – a fantasy book series turned TV show — for the former, who watches the series but hasn’t read the tomes. This war escalates to the point at which Abed soundproofs his ears and effectively goes deaf. That, in turn, leads him to fall for an actually deaf fellow student, »

Gabrielle Union: I've Made a Ton of Bad Decisions in Relationships

28 January 2014 1:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The couple that sings together, stays together. Gabrielle Union and fiancé Dwyane Wade sang karaoke for a cause Monday at South Beach Battioke at the Fillmore Miami Beach, which benefitted Shane Battier's Take Charge Foundation. Union strutted her stuff to "I've Got Friends in Low Places" while reigning NBA Mvp LeBron James sang "Back That A-- Up" and brought the house down when he, Wade, and Udonis Haslem grooved to Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." The Hangover star Ken Jeong also made an appearance with a convincing Guns N Roses rendition. Prior to showing off her country side on stage, »

Community: Season Five Ratings

24 January 2014 12:58 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Chevy Chase is gone and Community creator Dan Harmon is back. Will some of the viewers return as well? Will the show be renewed for a sixth season (and a movie) or will it be cancelled instead? We shall see.

Community follows a suspended lawyer (Joel McHale) and other students at the Greendale Community College in Colorado. The rest of the cast includes Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, Jim Rash, Jonathan Banks, and John Oliver.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Special Features - Why The Mandarin was the best villain of 2013

24 January 2014 1:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on why The Mandarin was the best villain of 2013....

2013 was a year that showed much promise, and when it came to the Oscar contenders, it delivered in full. Honestly I can't look at a single Best Picture nominee and say it doesn't deserve it, and there were very few snubs (the big ones being Rush and Fruitvale Station). However, where 2013 really dropped the ball was the summer blockbusters. Like clockwork each and every one of them disappointed in some way, while smaller movies sneaked up and made an impression (see The World's End, Pain and Gain, This Is the End, etc.).  Nevertheless, one blockbuster from last year that I believe is under-appreciated is Iron Man 3, and it also happens to have the best villain in The Mandarin.

Iron Man 3 is a classic case of not being able to please the fans. It's darker, more focused, and more character-based then its predecessors, »

'Community' photos: Nathan Fillion, Jonathan Banks and more in 'Analysis of Cork-Based Networking'

22 January 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Community" loves its guest stars, and the sixth episode of Season 5, "Analysis of Cork-Based Networking," brings them in by the droves. Nathan Fillion, Brie Larson, Paget Brewster, Kumail Nanjiani and Robert Patrick all feature.

Check out photos from the episode for a preview.

Britta (Gillian Jacobs) is happy about something.

It's not her hide-and-seek skills obviously.

Who is Prince Varthos? And why does Abed (Danny Pudi) care that he is adopted?

Nathan Fillion (as a janitor?) will make everything all right.

Fillion plays the Greendale head custodian, Bob Waite, who deals with Professor Hickey (Jonathan Banks) and Annie (Alison Brie).

It's time for the midterm dance, which may mean Chang (Ken Jeong) and some "Thriller" dancing.

The study group is not amused.

The Dean (Jim Rash) tries to placate them.

Does it work? Or does Annie still need a hug in the rain?
