The problem with "life" and "responsibilities" and all those other things that require frowny-faced finger quotes is that they keep you from sitting at home all day eating ice cream directly from the carton and watching the best comedy that daytime TV has to offer. It's an issue.
Thankfully, the miraculous ability to DVR shows has visited us from the future, allowing us to balance that whole responsibility mess with the thing that's really most important in our lives: The LOLs. So here's how you can catch them while you're out doing all that dumb stuff like working a "job" and "making a living."
'Archer' (2010 - )
Though "Archer" lives on in nighttime TV, it has become a daytime syndication staple -- and all "Archer" is good "Archer," no matter what time it happens. We can't put it any better than Den of Geek's James Stanfield: "It's like MI5 run by Dunder Mifflin. »

The Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 finale arrived with a big tease of things to come. With major spoilers, here’s our take...
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. has done it again – concluded a season with a big tease about something from the comics. Last year, they had us talking about the Secret Warriors, and this time around it’s Life Model Decoys. Daisy’s fate, the new director, and the double-death of Hive and Lincoln are also hefty talking points. They crammed a lot in didn’t they?
Here’s our attempt to break it all down, and work out what the conclusion of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 means for the future of the show...
The actual ending
If the ‘six months later’ section was the televised equivalent of an extended post-credits tease of things to come, »

Further exploration of Marvel’s Women Problem.
We’ve come a long way from the Dark Ages of Comics, when men dominated the industry and the general assumption was that female characters were expendable plot points that no one would miss, because women didn’t read comics. The fridging and subsequent re-birth of Barbara Gordon as Oracle proved a crucial turning point for the industry as a whole, ushering in a new wave of representation in mainstream comics. Today, Marvel Comics has taken inclusion to greater heights: Thor is a woman, Ms. Marvel is a Muslim-American teenager, The Hulk is a Korean-American whiz kid, and Devil Dinosaur has found a new companion in the wonderful Lunella Lafayette, a Black pre-teen living on the Lower East Side of New York.
But how well does this translate into the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Spoilers for Captain America: Civil War…
Before you worry this article is going to descend, as so many do, into a Marvel bashing, feminist rant, let me disabuse you of this right off. I have never, and do not, consider Marvel to be sexist when it comes to women. While their main films are admittedly male dominated, they frequently craft strong, developing female characters – Pepper Potts, Peggy Carter, Scarlet Witch, Hope van Dyne, and of course Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow. She’s been around the Marvel Cinematic Universe from almost the beginning, first being one of the highlights in the otherwise lacklustre Iron Man 2, all the way through to becoming Captain America’s new best friend in The Winter Soldier, and starting to fall in love with Bruce Banner in Avengers: Age of Ultron. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger looks no closer to making The Legend Of Conan or Triplets from where we’re sitting, as whilst those two projects stumble along in limbo, he’s taking on a different action comedy instead.
Taran Killam, of Saturday Night Live fame, is making his directorial debut with Why We’re Killing Gunther, based on a screenplay that he wrote himself. He’s also going to co-star in the film along with The Avengers’ Cobie Smulders, and Arnold Schwarzenegger fits in as Gunther, described as ‘the world’s greatest hitman’.
It’ll be Arnie’s first full-on comedy role since 1996’s Junior, and production on Why We’re Killing Gunther is set to kick off this June. We’d expect a release next year.

From tonight through May 4, the Independent Film Festival Boston (IFFBoston) "is offering 25 narrative features, 38 documentaries and 50-something shorts, along with panels and parties for their 14th annual celebration of all things cinematic," writes Sean Burns for Wbur. We're collecting previews and reviews. John Krasinski’s The Hollars opens this year's edition; Burns: "Closing night brings the directorial debut of actress Clea DuVall, of Girl, Interrupted and Argo fame. Boasting a to-die-for cast, including Melanie Lynskey, Cobie Smulders, Natasha Lyonne and Alia Shawkat, The Intervention chronicles a boozy weekend in which these characters give up on being 'fine' and 'embrace the reality of fine-adjacent.' Adjacent to the film will be DuVall herself." » - David Hudson »
Paramount Pictures launched CinemaCon's studio presentations Monday night to a near capacity crowd at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace with a look at their upcoming slate of films. Among the teasers featured were Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and Rings. Both see Paramount releasing follow-ups to successful franchises with something a little different. Additionally, the Denis Villeneuve helmed sci-fi pic Story of Your Life was previewed, winning much praise from the audience. And the big screen re-imagining of Baywatch showed off its first R-rated footage, which was decidedly more vulgar than it was funny.
Opening the presentation was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Stars Megan Fox and Will Arnett reunited to introduce an extended cut of the previously released trailer. The CinemaCon version brought an extended take on the turtles' skydiving prowess with a lot of action and a lot of fun. The opening skit shared between »
