Was Zoo Twist a Tired Trope? Is Carpool Karaoke Psychic? Girl Meets Missed Crossover Opportunity? And More Qs!

22 July 2016 9:56 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Zoo, Girl Meets World, Stranger Things, UnREAL and Little Liars!

1 | In Episode 2 of Netflix’s Stranger Things: Assuming that upon leaving her sleepover at Pete’s, Nancy took the same route home (by foot or, like, hitched a ride), wouldn’t she have seen that Barb’s car was still parked down the road? Also, were you shouting at the screen for Joyce to make the The Martian set up a Christmas light alphabet? »

‘BoJack Horseman’ Season 3 Premiere: Can ‘Bad’ TV Be Better Than Oscar Movies?

22 July 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 is a feat of storytelling on both a serialized and episodic level. To honor the impressive accomplishment, IndieWire will be reviewing all 12 episodes over the next few weeks. Below, we delve into Episode 1.]

Read More: ‘BoJack Horseman’ Review: Season 3 Deserves an Oscar (And Every Other Award)

Is “Horsin’ Around” Better Than “Secretariat,” and Is TV Better Than Film?

The most important takeaway from the premiere of “BoJack Horseman” is that BoJack already knows an Oscar may not make him happy. This could’ve been a realization made much later in the season, but creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg wastes no time in Season 3. He’s got big fish to fry, and each episode takes on far more than just the requisite plot developments. By putting BoJack’s motivation into question already — for an arc that will still last all season — Bob-Waksberg shifts the conversation to a bigger topic for this half hour: Should BoJack be prouder of “Horsin’ Around” than “Secretariat”?

Clearly, the answer is, “yes.” Considering BoJack wasn’t actually in his Oscar vehicle (he was digitally replaced) and he became a star from “Horsin’ Around, »

‘Gotham’ Sneak Peek: Penguin’s Past Comes Home to Roost

28 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Family matters to “Gotham’s” Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), and after losing his beloved mother earlier this season, the seemingly reformed crime lord is more desperate for connection than ever. Thankfully, he may have found it again thanks to last week’s introduction of Elijah Van Dahl (Paul Reubens) — Penguin’s long-lost father.

Elijah welcomed his wayward son into the fold with open arms and no questions asked, but in episode 16 of Season 2, titled “Prisoners,” it appears that the rest of Penguin’s newfound family might not be so accommodating. In Variety‘s exclusive sneak peek from the March 28 episode, we see that Oswald’s stepmother Grace (Melinda Clarke) and his siblings Charles (Justin Mark) and Sasha (Kaley Ronayne) have made a startling discovery that raises some questions about their new house guest and his checkered past. Since everyone in Gotham City has their own agenda, it seems safe »

4 March 2016 6:19 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In the late Eighties/early Nineties, two essential ingredients for a popular sitcom were a peppy theme song and stilted title credits where characters stare at the camera. With "Tgif" nostalgia in full bloom thanks to Netflix's Fuller House revival, The Tonight Show created their own hilarious intro sequence with help from Jesse Frederick, who wrote and performed the themes to Full House, Step By Step and Family Matters

Happy Friday! Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show Received a Tgif-Style Theme Song

Can something be nostalgic if it's new? The Tonight Show debuted a new introductory theme song Thursday night just in time for—you guessed it—Tgif! Even though ABC's signature programming lineup no longer exists, Jimmy Fallon teamed up with Jesse Frederick, the singer of theme songs to hit shows such as Family Matters, Full House and Step by Step, to receive his very own '90s-style intro. If we didn't know any better, we would think The Tonight Show was a sitcom straight out of that era. The show's update features is a combination of all three former hit series, including all of the cast members participating in activities only to stop and smile for the camera—say »

What better way to get excited for the weekend than with a happy song from Jimmy Fallon? The late-night host kicked off Thursday’s episode of “The Tonight Show” with jaunty Tgif-style opening credits featuring an original theme song written and performed by Jesse Frederick, who sang the themes to “Full House,” “Family Matters” and “Step by Step.” Just like the classic sitcoms, the cheerful tune was accompanied by lots of smiling shots of Fallon, Steve Higgins, Questlove and the rest of the Roots — one whom was reading a magazine titled “Bong Fancy.” Also Read: Jimmy Fallon Impersonates Donald Trump Again to Praise 'Mega-Me' Chris. »

"Hey, what other old shows could we bring back?" That's a question being asked all over Hollywood, now that Fuller House worked America up into a nostalgia frenzy. A little credit is due to the Disney Channel's Girl Meets World, which proved that these old shows could benefit from being bumped into the modern era and given a new generation of kids who need to learn life lessons.
