Funny Farm (1988)
The mere thought of the undead bring up visions of a pleathora of zombie shows already on the air. Whether it's violent horror or light-hearted attempt at comedy, we're already doing it.
But before Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet, Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted), hadn't yet joined the fray. Suddenly the smell of death is sweet again.
There are many ways to look at what Fresco is offering with his look at the sudden eruption of undead in suburbia. It's a reminder that life is short – and ironic, too – since it's often under the worst circumstances that we come to realize the beauty that already surrounds us.
It's also an effective tale of a marriage that needed a boost, a look at commitment and what it's like to stand by your partner through the good times and the really,

As legacies go, launching your offsprings comedy career is a pretty good one. When his daughter, Angela, was booking standups to play at the Funny Farm in Brighton, Derek Barnes knew that she really wanted to be performing herself. When he died in the summer of 2008, she finally gave it a go. After his death, she says: Suddenly, the things that used to matter to me didnt any more, and one of those things was what people thought of me. He died when he was 60, which is no age. And that was the catalyst. I just thought, lifes too short. So I signed up to a standup course.
Six years later, Derek was at the heart of Angela Barness debut standup show, You Cant Take It With You,

Now that Chevy’s making us laugh again, and the sting of his most egregious failures has worn off, Warner Bros. has decided to pull two of his movies from the vaults for its “Double Feature” series. They aren’t two of his best, unfortunately, but for filmgoers of a certain age, the Funny Farm/Spies Like Us two-fer will bring back plenty of (occasionally rather painful) memories. More after the jump:
Funny Farm, released in June of 1988, holds the
2010 has already given us a couple of truly epic games between BioShock and Assassin’s Creed II I’ve had my hands full just trying to get other games reviewed. And yet I think there may still be yet to come some gaming-gold with the following five games; due for release later this year.
5. Super Street Fighter IV (Releases April 27th, 2010)
Street Fighter IV was great. And in the tradition of previous generations of this game, Capcom has added the word “Super” to the title and has added more playable characters and combos and other little things. Sure, maybe I shouldn’t be so stoked about a re-dux of a previous game. But damnit, Street Fighter games are just always so much fun.
What this makes me hungry for though is a new installment of Marvel vs. Capcom. Those games never, ever disappoint. So Capcom, if you

Celebrity News Service loves Chase and was a fan of his since his days on "NBC's Saturday Night Live." On "Chuck," Chase will play Ted Roark who is the founder and great mind behind Roark Instruments. Chuck (Zachary Levi) has looked up to Roark since he was a kid, and working at Roark Instruments is his dream. But perhaps there's more to this company than just super cool computers, turtlenecks -- and uberpositive employees.
One of the most honored and beloved actors of his generation, Chase first came to national prominence as a writer and performer with the original cast of NBC's "Saturday Night Live," for which he won two Emmys.
