Girls, “Two Plane Rides”
Written by Lena Dunham
Directed by Lena Dunham
Aired March 23rd, 2014
Do you remember how last season’s Girls run ended? Well this season things culminated in an entirely different tone. This time, there were no grand gestures or fireworks. Season three isn’t quite as dark as season two, but man is the finale rough. If the season two finale frustrated fans because it suggested that Hannah might be too dependent on the man in her life, the season three finale seems intent on underlining that Hannah’s ready to move on, with or without Adam. And she isn’t the only one moving on, but she seems to be the only one moving in the right direction: Hannah gets into the country’s best grad school, Adam gives a truly “bad” performance in his Broadway debut, Marnie finds herself in another destructive relationship, Shosh »

A review of tonight's "Parks and Recreation" coming up just as soon as I listen to a Ted talk by the color beige... On the whole, I didn't find "The Wall" nearly as successful as last week's "Anniversaries," even though both spent a lot of time on the Pawnee-Eagleton conflict. Ron bringing his son John (middle name redacted) to work was fun — and the fact that the birth happened off camera, as a complete surprise to Leslie and the others, fits both Ron Swanson's philosophy regarding personal information and the show's tendency to race through big life cycle events as quickly as possible — but there was too much Jamm, too much Craig (who works best in concentrated doses), and I'm in general less fond of episodes built largely around how terrible the people of Pawnee and/or Eagleton are. I understand that in this case, it was supposed to provide »

Ever wonder what airs from 2:45 to 6:15 a.m. on Pawnee's public access? Why, a news magazine hosted by Perd Hapley, of course.
NBC has released the first episode of "The Hapley Group," their "Parks and Recreation" digital series meant to satisfy fans' cravings while the sitcom breaks for the Winter Olympics and, boy, is it a heaping helping of Hapley.
In the episode, everyone's favorite newscaster (played by Jay Jackson) sits down with some of Pawnee's brightest luminaries -- Joan Callamezzo (Mo Collins), Crazy Ira (Matt Besser), The Douche (Nick Kroll) and a new character, conservative pundit Mike Patterson (Seth Morris), host of "Eagleton Now" -- to chew the fat on the topics of the day.
Not only do we learn that Perd believes Obamacare is short for Alabamacare, but we're also treated to a commercial for the Pawnee Farmers' Market After Dark, featuring the sultry Chardbodies.
NBC has already provided the world with a "Friday Night Lights"/"Parenthood" crossover thanks to its Olympics hiatus digital series "Friday Night at the Luncheonette," and now it's offering a "Parks and Recreation" web-only installment featuring a look at "The Hapley Group," a roundtable talk show "featuring Pawnee, Indiana's foremost pundits." Perd Hapley (Jay Jackson), naturally, is the host, and Joan Callamezzo (Mo Collins) is one of the guests providing absolutely no useful insight into the issues at hand. Seth Morris, new to the series, appears as Eagleton conservative Mike Patterson, and Matt Besser and Nick Kroll reprise their roles as shock jocks Crazy Ira and The Douche. It's very funny, but the commercial in the middle, for the Pawnee Farmer's Market/Chardbodies, steals the show. Check out the video below: »

Accepting the fact that viewers cannot survive on luge and figure skating alone, NBC has launched digital spinoffs of some of its scripted series to satiate fans while its primetime schedule is dominated by the Sochi Olympics.
“Chicago Fire” leads things off on Tuesday with a four-part digital series titled “I Am a Firefighter.” It follows Monica Raymond’s Dawson, who must put her training and confidence to the test when she is alone in the station during an emergency.
“Parenthood’s” digital series actually celebrates a former NBC show: “Friday Night at the Luncheonette,” which debuts Thursday, features guest stars Jesse Plemons and Derek Phillips who reprise their “Friday Night Lights” roles when “Parenthood’s” Amber (Mae Whitman) is tasked »

"Parenthood" has seen its fair share of "Friday Night Lights" alumni make appearances on the show (both are executive produced by Jason Katims), but never have they played their characters from the beloved former NBC series. Until now.
NBC announced on Monday (Feb. 10) that "Parenthood" would be getting a four-part digital series, "Friday Night at the Luncheonette," as a way of keeping viewers engaged in the series during the 2014 Winter Olympics hiatus. The series will follow Amber (Mae Whitman) as she watches after cousin Max (Max Burkholder) while working after hours at the studio.
During her adventures, "Fnl" stars Jesse Plemons and Derek Phillips reprise their roles of Landry Clarke and Billy Riggins, respectively, showing up as the band Crucifictorious. (And presumably explaining how Billy came to be part of the band.) Phillips has appeared on "Parenthood" as a different character in the past, so continuity sticklers would be advised to look the other way. »
