The Lonely Island: saluting 15 of their finest moments

11 January 2017 8:34 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Gem Wheeler Jan 12, 2017

Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone are comedy trio The Lonely Island. Here are just some of their finest songs and sketches...

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping was – yep, it’s time to call it - the funniest film of 2016. For those who blinked a little too long and didn’t catch it on its brief appearance in UK cinemas, the DVD release is your chance to find out what you’ve missed: a hilarious parody of current pop music’s excesses that blends acerbic criticism of predatory gossip shows and social media mobs with a sweet story of three feuding rappers struggling to mend their friendship. The fact that this touching tale also features Seal fending off a pack of wolves, Justin Timberlake dressed as a fish, and a bagpiper playing a lament at a beloved pet turtle’s Viking-inspired funeral comes as no surprise »

Archer Season 8 Teaser Promises Dreamland And New Station

6 January 2017 12:51 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

FX’s Archer has been known to reinvent itself before, especially during its later seasons. The last outing found the gang moving to Los Angeles to start their own private detective agency, and season eight finds them in a new place entirely, “Dreamland.” But that’s not the only change set to come to the show.

As seen in the trailers above and below, Archer is not only going to enter a new era — as he and the gang now find themselves in a 1920-era detective noir, with the titular character as a private investigator who searches for the man who killed Woodhouse, his partner — but a new station, as well. That’s right, season 8 will find Archer moving to FX’s sister station, Fxx, which is home to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, You’re the Worst, Man Seeking Woman and countless Simpsons re-runs.

Archer season 8 premieres sometime this spring, »

The move to Fxx comes after FX’s John Landgraf said last year that the cabler would be moving “really aggressively” into more animated series and short-form animated series.
