Trailer for Netflix's National Lampoon Film 'A Futile & Stupid Gesture'

Netflix has launched an official trailer for a new film titled A Futile and Stupid Gesture, from director David Wain, who is already working with Netflix to bring you the "Wet Hot American Summer" series. The sort-of-doc film profiles Doug Kenney, the comedy wunderkind who co-created the "National Lampoon", Caddyshack, and Animal House. It premieres at the Sundance Film Festival and hits Netflix next January. One description explains: "In the 1970s and '80s, National Lampoon's success and influence creates a new media empire overseen in part by the brilliant and troubled Doug Kenney." This reminds me of the other National Lampoon documentary that played at Sundance, Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead. This is much more than just a doc as it features a full cast recreating many of the moments in Kenney's life. Will Forte plays Kenney, and the cast includes Emmy Rossum, Domhnall Gleeson, Seth Green, Natasha Lyonne, Annette O'Toole,

A Character Came Out as Bisexual on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Fans Are So Freakin' Excited

Rosa Diaz (aka Emily Goldfinch, if you're talking to her neighbors) has long been a fan favorite on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Underneath her tough, standoffish exterior is a lovable heart of gold, much like the rest of the characters on the Fox comedy. But on Tuesday night's episode, which marked the 99th episode of the series, we got a big piece of information regarding the notoriously tight-lipped detective's love life post-Adrian Pimento (Jason Mantzoukas). During a scene with Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz) gets a phone call from a woman who can be heard calling her "babe." Although she initially tries to brush it off and say it was her sister on the other end of the line, Boyle immediately realizes it's something more than that. "I'm dating a woman. I'm bi," she tells him. The scene is incredibly simple and understated, which makes it feel even more important.

‘Easy’ Season 2 Review: Grading Every Episode of Joe Swanberg’s Intimate and Exciting Netflix Series

‘Easy’ Season 2 Review: Grading Every Episode of Joe Swanberg’s Intimate and Exciting Netflix Series
Joe Swanberg is back! After a fairly under-the-radar Season 1 release in September 2016, Season 2 got the similar low-key marketing treatment before dropping the first day of December.

But don’t take the lack of buzz as a lack of import. Season 1 asked a lot of valuable questions while delivering a beautiful and unique realization of modern Chicago. The anthology approach, with each episode functioning as a standalone short, helped cover a lot of cultural ground, and Season 2 continues that pattern in interesting ways.

While the episodes can certainly stand on their own, many bring back characters from Season 1. Context from earlier episodes isn’t prescient, but it does help, and just like last year, some stories are better than others.

To that end, IndieWire has reviewed each episode individually below and ranked them by their assigned grades.

‘Do You Want to See a Dead Body?’ Trailer: Some of TV’s Funniest People Take a Twisted Trip to a Crime Scene
There are crime shows on TV, but few of them follow the quote “It’s not about the journey, it’s about the destination” quite as literally as “Do You Want to See a Body?” The Rob Huebel-hosted mini-journeys around Los Angeles with some of the biggest names in comedy has a fresh batch of episodes premiering next month, and YouTube Red has a sneak peek.

John Cho, Terry Crews, Adam Scott, Judy Greer, Justin Long, Alexandra Daddario, and more are all along for the ride as Huebel takes them on dangerous trips to see/be haunted by/stumble upon/generally desecrate a dead body. Some of these trips to crime scenes involve bodily harm, threatened pride, and — by the looks of things with Mr. Cho — a little bit of light quicksand.

‘Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later’ Review

I have never been the biggest fan of the original ‘Wet Hot American Summer‘. Although it has attained cult status over the years, I never found the film to be memorable as others do. In fact, when Netflix revived the franchise a little over two years ago with an eight episode prequel series titled “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp“, I pretty much had the same feeling. With the latest entry in the revival, “Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later“, we finally get a true sequel to the original. And the premise is simple: the campers and counsels of camp firewood reunite a decade later to fulfill their promise made in the first film. Hilarity ensues. But the question still remains; does it follow the aforementioned trend of it’s predecessors? Well, the simple answer is no–but the more complicated answer, is inevitably yes.

The 25 Best TV Comedy Ensembles of the Last 25 Years, Ranked

  • Indiewire
The 25 Best TV Comedy Ensembles of the Last 25 Years, Ranked
A great ensemble creates a mysterious bond between a show and its viewers. The chemistry shared on screen brings with it a certain level of comfort.

But to refer to this quality as some kind of supernatural power does a disservice to the men and women who forge it. There is the talent of each individual performer to consider: If any of them falter, the whole dynamic falls apart. It’s a dynamic that requires work, too. Whether it’s bonding in real-life or being a good listener on set, chemistry is a science for these casts; it’s made, not found.

Then there’s the versatility of expanding these connections beyond just one or two cast members, but an entire ensemble of six or so series regulars. The best ensembles work no matter who’s paired up in a scene, and it feels like the TV can barely contain
