Emmy Contenders 2017: Lead Actor in a Comedy

31 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It remains to be seen if anyone can break Jeffrey Tambor’s two-year winning streak for “Transparent,” but there’s a formidable group that will make a strong effort. In fact, this category could be an exact repeat of last year’s lineup, with Anthony Anderson (“Black-ish”), Aziz Ansari (“Master of None”), Will Forte (“The Last Man On Earth”), William H. Macy (“Shameless”), and Thomas Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”) all eligible.

Pot TV: Celebrate 4/20 By Watching the Most Memorable Stoner Shows

20 April 2017 9:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s not a federally recognized holiday, but the peaceful spirit of April 20 – otherwise known as the marijuana-enhanced 4-20 – is one worth celebrating. While still technically an illegal substance in most areas of the world, some of our favorite TV shows are clearly enhanced by being under the influence. Pot imbues them with a certain sensibility that may heighten the mood, even without chemical assistance.

Here are some of our favorite series, all available on streaming services, that acknowledge weed as a normal part of life for many Americans (even though a lot of the characters on this list probably shouldn’t be described as “normal”).

“Bored to Death”

Jonathan Ames’ HBO comedy was a celebration of both pot’s mellow and extreme mind-altering states. On the one hand, a little bit of suspension of disbelief was needed to buy into the oddball adventures of Jonathan (Jason Schwartzman), a novelist turned unlicensed private investigator. »

Ahhhhhhhh, now this is a cool branding campaign.

HBO on Friday rolled out a series of new network bumpers, enlisting the casts of some of its biggest shows to appear in character and harmonize on the signature static intro that precedes all of its original programming. As you can tell, John Oliver isn’t all that into it.

“What is the point of this whole concept?” the Last Week Tonight host asks at the top of the video above. “Nobody tunes into HBO for static. That is not a beloved sound. »
