MTV Renews Teen Wolf for Season 5

24 July 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

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).

That’s good news for fans of the show, considering Season 4 — which is currently airing — will only last a comparably pithy 12 episodes.

GLAAD report finds both low and low quality Lgbt representation in studio films

22 July 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

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. »

Through a Timeline Darkly: Pop Culture and Community

21 July 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

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:
