Just as sure as the full moon will rise again, Teen Wolf will be back for Season 5 — and it’s going to be a big one.
MTV announced today at San Diego Comic-Con that its hair-raising thriller has been renewed for fifth season that will span 20 episodes (and be split into two parts).

In its second annual study of Lgbt representation in studio films, GLAAD found that major studios have continued to underrepresent and misrepresent lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender characters. The advocacy organization found that, of the 102 releases from 7 major studios, only 17 included characters that identified as lesbian, gay, or bisexual—adding that a majority of these characters were minor roles or cameos, and that many representations were “outright defamatory.”
GLAAD took seven major studios to task in its Studio Responsibility Index (Sri), giving both Paramount and Warner Brothers “failing” grades for including only minor and offensive portrayals of Lgbt people in their 2013 releases. »

Community has become one of the icons of pop culture skewering in the modern age. Ask anyone online, not in person of course, about the phrase Six Seasons And A Movie and they can place it at the NBC sitcom’s feet, and the vocal fans that used it as an online mantra to see the show reach the goals jokingly mentioned in a season 2 clip show episode with regards to a one season show called The Cape that once aired on the network.
Such is the way that Community integrates itself in the nerdiest areas of the internet, and takes pot-shots at other elements in the zeitgeist, turning them into something entirely brilliant within the show and making one find it hard to watch any attempts at a trope or genre straight ever again. Such examples of Community at its best pop-culture and film/tv skewering are:

Ride Along 2 isn't wasting any time! Production has already started in Miami with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, even though the first Ride Along only came out a little more than six months ago. The first installment of this hit comedy earned a whopping $134 million off a $25 million budget, so it's no wonder why a sequel is already deep into shooting.
The original followed security guard Ben, who goes on a ride along with his soon to be brother-in-law, decorated Apd detective James, with the hopes of impressing him before he makes that final move and proposes to his longtime girlfriend. This time around, Ben and James are on a new case in Miami, which promises to bring bigger laughs and more action than the first.
Just because J.K. Rowling returned to Harry Potter doesn’t mean Daniel Radcliffe has any plans to. Also after the jump: Olivia Munn and Ken Jeong will tag along for Ride Along 2 Pirates 5 will go light on the monsters, says Jerry Bruckheimer Bad Boys III will have a screenplay in the next few months […]

The low-budget cop comedy opened earlier this year to a surprise $153 million gross, prompting the quick green light of a sequel for an early 2016 release. Jeong joins fellow newcomers to the franchise Olivia Munn and Benjamin Bratt who recently joined the sequel. [Source: Deadline]

Arriving close to two years after Ride Along, Ride Along 2 is going to have to work hard to distinguish itself from its predecessor. Just slapping the same ingredients of Ice Cube (the tough guy) and Kevin Hart (the goofball) won't feel fresh. So new faces are necessary, including one of the biggest in comedy. Which, somehow, is Ken Jeong. Variety reports that comic irritant Ken Jeong has climbed aboard Ride Along 2. Details on Jeong's role are being kept under wraps by the studio, because surely they're a precious magical element to Ride Along 2 that would suffer were it to be shared in advance. Certainly the story to Ride Along 2 is so rewarding, and so dense and filled with comic detail, that sharing it in advance would damage the art of Messrs. Cube, Hart, Jeong and director Tim Story. Surely it can't be because the script is incomplete, »
