A big question coming out of the seventh season Parks and Recreation premiere last week was how long the show was going to tease out the mystery behind Leslie and Ron’s big spat over something called “Morningstar.” Not terribly long, it turns out, as this week’s second episode of the two-parter pretty much centralizes its plot around discovering every minute detail of what went wrong all those years ago. In nearly all aspects – jokes, ridiculous plot lines, Amy Poehler’s bangs – it felt like a truer return to form for the series than the premiere ever was.
“William Henry Harrison” opens with Leslie searching for a cause to back her attempts in preserving the land that Ron wants to build a Gryzzl campus on. This, in classic Parks and Recreation fashion, spans from listening to a creepy returning character pitch an over-sexualized version of Disneyland to a guy »

If you've been reading us this season then you know we've already given you pretty thorough analyses of this year's short film categories. I watched all the films that made it to the final consideration stage and offered up thoughts on each and some somewhat informed predictions. In the end, though, it was still tricky to guess, but I did get four of the five animated players right. Now, with nominees announced, it seems worth it to review. So let's… All things considered, the animated short category is difficult to handicap. Particularly with the infiltration of other voters, as theses categories are opened up to the entire membership via screeners, it's just hard to guess which way preference will fall. The biggest surprise for me was that Glen Keane's gorgeous, heavily promoted "Duet" missed out on a nod. I frankly thought it could have put up a fight to win, »

Disney Junior is blasting off with a new science-based adventure cartoon series.
“Miles From Tomorrowland” is set to premiere Feb. 6 with four back-to-back episodes, the cabler said Monday.
The half-hour toon incorporates science facts, with the help of consultants from Nasa and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, among other experts, into the journey of young adventurer Miles Callisto and his family as they travel the galaxy via the Tomorrowland Transit Authority, an obvious nod to Disneyland.
The series reflects the emphasis in academic circles on the need to pique the interest of more youth in careers centering on science, technology, engineering and math.

"Once more, the Sith will rule the galaxy." So said Darth Sidious upon the turn of Anakin Skywalker to the dark side, and he was right (for awhile...). Only this time, they'll do it in 3D. Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, in all its Order 66ing glory, will make its 3D debut at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, coming April 16-19, 2015. Fans will be the first to see this long-awaited, big-screen 3D conversion by Lucasfilm, completed with care for the look of the original movie while taking advantage of 3D's stunning possibilities.
Revenge of the Sith was originally released in 2005, and brought the Star Wars saga full circle with an action-packed, visually-stunning, emotional story. The film sees the final machinations of Darth Sidious' evil plot come to pass - and features lots (and lots) of lightsaber duels, dogfights, and Clone Wars battles. With all this, Revenge of the Sith »
