‘Silicon Valley’: Season 3 Finale Goes Where The Series Has Never Gone Before

26 June 2016 7:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Who saw that coming?

No, not the twist ending of “The Uptick,” “Silicon Valley’s” Season 3 finale — not exactly. Erlich’s (T.J. Miller) sneaky plan to save Pied Piper from the clutches of Gavin Belson (Matt Ross) did come out of nowhere, and even if savvy viewers were observant enough to put together the financial capabilities of Bachmanity and how it would save Richard (Thomas Middleditch) from squalor, predicting that ending would’ve been gutsy.

Why? Because Season 3 marks the happiest ending for “Silicon Valley” to date — arguably, the only happy ending. And not only that, but the decision to unite all our favorite characters under one roof trims the fat in a way the show was unwilling to do before.

Remembering the previous finales is a bit like recalling a great date that ended with, “Oh, did I forget to mention my boyfriend?” — something Jared wouldn’t understand because, »

Mindy Project: Chris Messina Returning for Season 5 But Not as a Series Regular

7 June 2016 8:41 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Chris Messina‘s markedly lighter Mindy Project workload will soon be reflected in his billing.

TVLine has learned exclusively that when the Hulu comedy returns for its fifth season, Messina will no longer be a series regular. The actor will, however, continue to pop in and out of Mindy‘s orbit, albeit as a recurring guest star.

The Overlooked Hotel is beginning to fill up nicely, with a plethora of deserving guests. Our first guest was master storyteller Stephen Tobolowsky, he was followed by Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan, the late lamented J. T.

Lol: Watch T.J. Miller’s Alternate Stephen Tobolowsky Insults from ‘Silicon Valley’

27 May 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

One of the staples of comedy releases on home video is a special feature that contains a reel of alternate jokes and lines from various scenes. They’re called “line-o-ramas” on home video releases for movies from the likes of Judd Apatow, Adam McKay, and Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, but we usually don’t get to […]

Thelma & Louise Part 1: Girls' Trip, Interrupted

22 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

25th Anniversary Five-Part Mini Series Event 

Thelma & Louise

Directed by Ridley Scott

Written by Callie Khouri

Released by MGM on May 24th, 1991

Nominated for Six Oscars

To celebrate the anniversary of this bonafide girls gone wild classic from 1991, Team Experience is revisiting the picture, tag-team style all week long (like we did with Rebecca & Silence of the Lambs, y'all!).

While the film begins in Arkansas, we're taking an alternate route. Grabbing the keys to begin this road trip is our own dazzling female duo over in Los Angeles, Anne Marie and Margaret. - Editor

Pt 1 by Anne Marie and Margaret

Anne Marie: 00:01. Fade in on an opening credit sequence that pulls every single late 80s/early 90s cliche. Heat-baked street? Check. Twanging guitar? Check. Harmonica solo? Check.

Margaret: Based on this alone, I would definitely expect to be watching a serious action-drama about a lovable renegade cop

Anne Marie: I mean, »

Review: 'Silicon Valley' meets the new boss as season 3 begins

25 April 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on last night's Silicon Valley premiere coming up just as soon as we're living in a post-r.I.G.B.Y. world... As I noted at the end of last season, Silicon's anti-Entourage qualities are great fuel for both comedy and angst, as my laughter at some point gets consumed by an empathetic panic attack for the latest mess Richard has found himself in. Usually, though, that flip comes near the end of an episode, where the most agita-inducing moments of "Founder Friendly" came at the beginning, as Richard dealt with the aftermath of Laurie firing him as Pied Piper CEO and his terrible lack of options as a result. Never mind that Laurie was probably right to do it — Richard is a great coder, and a terrible manager — I still feel for the poor bastard as he suffers one humiliation after another. Following the disastrous meeting at Reviga, »

21 April 2016 3:26 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Poor Richard. When Silicon Valley returns Sunday night, the fictional Pied Piper CEO, played by Thomas Middleditch, will have his work cut out for him. The HBO comedy co-created by Mike Judge picks up right where it left off at the end of season two with the programmer having just been ousted from his own company. Now in season three, he has to fight to regain his rightful place as Pied Piper's CEO. But securing his former position might not be so easy when a new and more seasoned CEO (Stephen Tobolowsky) takes over. "There's no shortage of these

Ellen DeGeneres Working With HBO to Air Dying Comedian's Stand-Up Special

21 March 2016 8:22 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Ellen DeGeneres has made good on yet another promise, this time convincing HBO to air a stand-up special from aspiring comedian Quincy Jones, who also happens to be dying of cancer.

VideosJohn Oliver Takes Down Trump’s ‘Wall,’ Makes Waffle Iron Counterproposal

Jones, 32, made his first appearance on Ellen in March; she contributed $10,000 to his Kickstarter, which his friends helped him launch shortly after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer in July 2015. The Kickstarter’s initial goal was $5,000 to produce a special, but thanks to DeGeneres and Shutterfly, it has exceeded $50,000.

John Oliver Takes Down Trump's 'Wall,' Makes Waffle Iron Counterproposal

21 March 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Using his mouth as a sledgehammer and his wit as TNT, John Oliver toppled Donald Trump‘s infamous “Mexico Wall” plan this Sunday on HBO’s Last Week Tonight.

VideosJohn Oliver Takes Aim at Trump, Delivers Election Season’s Quintessential Takedown

Setting aside the project’s inherent “racism and xenophobia” up front, Oliver in the video above first chips away at the budget, which since Trump first pitched it (at a “discounted” $4 billion) has since tripled, and by a more realistic estimate will cost $25 billion (annual maintenance not included).

‘Silicon Valley’ Season 3 Trailer: Pied Piper Team Is Back at It (Video)

18 March 2016 3:46 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Pied Piper crew is back for another round of HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” and the power struggles are on.

The trailer teases little bits of what’s in store for the start-up. At the end of last season, Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) was struggling to retain seniority at his own company and was hilariously demoted by emotionless middlemen.

But those same middlemen have already picked Jack Barker (Stephen Tobolowsky) as the replacement CEO. Bachman (T.J. Miller) explodes onto the scene with his signature dry humor and impeccable timing as he counters Barker and attacks his age, guessing the aging exec must be a fan of Metamucil, Polio, the phonograph, a nice piece of fish and senior citizen discounts at Perkins Family Restaurants.

The company’s fate is up in the air and this comedic cast will go to great lengths — and some questionable yet priceless marketing tactics — to prevent its »

Game of Thrones' Liam Cunningham Teases 'Quite a Few' Season 6 Deaths, Possible Melisandre-Davos Alliance

18 March 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If we’re reading correctly into what Game of ThronesLiam Cunningham is saying, the HBO drama’s upcoming sixth season will peel back quite a few of the Onion Knight’s many layers.

That said, the actor  — who plays the aforementioned Ser Davos (aka Stannis’ wise counsel/moral compass) — excels at parceling out information in a way that must delight the spoiler-averse premium cable channel at the same time it frustrates fans and journalists hungry for spoilers: He is somehow good-natured and chatty yet shrewdly secretive, all at the same time.

“You want me to be an employee at my own company,” an aghast Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) asks his new boss Laurie (Suzanne Cryer) in the opening seconds of Silicon Valley‘s Season 3 trailer. Her response? “You have created a company too valuable for you to run.”

Welcome to the seismic conflict at the center of the HBO comedy’s 10-episode third season, which premieres Sunday, April at 10/9c.

[Review] The Confirmation

15 March 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The Confirmation opens with a child and his mother waiting outside a church. As the first lines of dialogue were spoken, I felt a sudden pang of shock, thinking I had unwittingly sat down for one of the numerous heavy-handed faith-based features crowding multiplexes. Thankfully, as it continued, the film revealed itself to instead be a rather smart comedy in which faith is a subject sometimes pondered by its characters. Seen through the eyes of its young protagonist, there is so much power in those big unanswerable questions of faith. The boy’s middle-class parents do not see eye-to-eye on the matter of religion, rarely agreeing on any subject since their divorce.

The first directorial effort from Bob Nelson, who also pens the screenplay, is another father-son tale following his Nebraska — this one a more slight, albeit heartfelt dramedy, set long after the parents’ break-up. It is not a film »

15 Things You Never Knew About Christopher Nolan's 'Memento'

15 March 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A hand shakes a Polaroid as it "reverse develops," moments before an ejected shell casing re-enters the gun it was fired from -- the bullet coming back out of the screaming man it was fired into.

As opening scenes go, you don't get much better than "Memento," Christopher Nolan's gripping film. And, as features go, few are as scary-good as this one. A thriller about memory, reality and, um, tattoos, "Memento's" twisty plot more than holds up 15 years later. Some would say it's "The Dark Knight" director's best film.

Forget the pending remake that has everyone crying "too soon;" in honor of the film's 15th anniversary this week, here are 15 things you never knew about this modern classic.

1. The brothers Nolan -- Christopher (pictured) and Jonathan -- came up with the idea for the film while on a 2000 mile road trip, driving from Chicago to Los Angeles.
