ABC’s new fall sitcom, Speechless, knows exactly what kind of show it wants to be from the get-go. It’s here to tell the chaotic, yet endearing stories of the Dimeo family, which includes a special needs teenager with cerebral palsy named Jj (Micah Fowler). But more importantly, it wants to be hilarious and somewhat disarming along the way, no matter which character is on screen.
Weirdly enough, this is one of those rare pilots that lends about the same comedic weight to every main character (and a good deal of the supporting cast, as well). Minnie Driver plays the family’s eccentric mother, Maya, who uproots the family for the sixth time in two years in order to find the “right fit” for Jj. We learn soon enough that she’s truly in search of a place that’s good enough »

When Doctor Strange hits theaters in November, it will mark the end of a very long road to the big screen. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige first mentioned the possibility of a Doctor Strange movie way back in 2009, while Iron Man 2 was in production, with the studio hiring Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write the script in 2010, but the project didn't find its footing until four years later, when writer-director Scott Derrickson came aboard. With just months until this Marvel Phase 3 movie arrives, today we have word that another writer was brought aboard for some last-minute rewrites, Community creator Dan Harmon.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Marvel Studios brought on Dan Harmon after the superhero adventure had wrapped production in April. The studio was looking for a writer to create some new scenes "for additional photography," according to the site's source. It isn't known if he will get »
Now that Captain America: Civil War has finally hit theaters, many fans will be watching this superhero adventure multiple times, to catch all of the subtle and not so subtle references to the Marvel comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe at large. As is the cast with any Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War not only references past McU adventures, but offers a look ahead to future movies. Today we have a new video that breaks down all of these Easter Eggs and references. Obviously, there will be Spoilers aplenty if you haven't seen Captain America: Civil War in theaters yet, so read on at your own risk.
This seven-minute video from Mr. Sunday Movies starts by pointing out the numerous similarities from the Civil War comics, including the death of Miriam Sharp's (Alfre Woodard) son, which serves as the motivation for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) to get behind the Sokovia Accords. »
A review of Captain America: Civil War — designed, like my TV episode reviews, to be read after you've seen it, which means there will be many many spoilers — coming up just as soon as you try some of my date loaf... It's an odd thing, Civil War. During the movie this morning, I was enjoying nearly every individual scene and how well the writers and the Russo brothers managed to juggle an absurdly large cast of pre-established characters (plus a couple of new ones in Black Panther and the Tom Holland version of Spider-Man) and give everyone at least one big moment (a literal one for Ant-Man, whose brief turn as Giant-Man was wisely hidden in all the pre-release hype). The movie squeezes in over a dozen Avengers, past, present, and future, has to do a lot of heavy lifting to introduce Black Panther and the nation of Wakanda (and »

Make no mistake: This is Jeff Winger’s darkest timeline.
Spike TV on Wednesday released a clip from its upcoming Joel McHale vs. Jim Rash Lip Sync Battle (airing Thursday at 10/9c) that finds The Artist Formerly Known as Dean Pelton grinding on his former Community co-star. Needless to say, this is more nightmarish than anything served up during that gas leak year at Greendale.
Press Play on the clip above to witness Rash mouth along to En Vogue’s very appropriate “Giving Him Something »
Spike TV on Monday released a sneak peek of Thursday’s episode (10/9c) in which Joel McHale fully embraces his inner Björk for a show-stopping performance of “It’s Oh So Quiet,” complete with Vegas-style backup dancers.

The hilarious gag reel, and the two clips, titled ‘Modern Espionage‘ and ‘Wedding Videography‘ can be viewed in our players below, but first, here’s a little more about the show.
Hacked e-mails, virtual reality, schlocky sci-fi filmmaking, grifting, forbidden paintball, a giant hand, a wedding and a stage adaptation of The Karate Kid… Welcome back for one crazy year at Greendale Community College! Though the Study Group-turned-“Committee to Save Greendale” has succeeded in their mission (well, almost), Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) has hired a by-the-books administrative consultant (Paget Brewster) to help »
