Sleepy Hollow Recap: In Which Ichabod Busts His Astral Projection

5 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Thank you, Grace Dixon, wherever you are, for imbuing your family’s line with enough grit, determination and unwielding “Oh hell no” to get your descendants out of some very tight spots.

Because, as Abbie herself notes in this week’s triumphant Sleepy Hollow, she’s been stuck in Purgatory, marooned in the 1700s and isolated in Pandora’s creepy catacombs, yet she’s always managed to find her way back — thanks, of course, to a healthy assist from her fellow Witness.

Berlin: Nancy Cartwright of ‘The Simpsons’ Launches Production Company

7 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nancy Cartwright, best known as the voice of Bart Simpson on “The Simpsons,” has launched Spotted Cow as a film/television finance and production company.

Spotted Cow’s first project is “In Search of Fellini,” which recently wrapped production in Italy. The coming-of-age drama stars Ksenia Solo, Maria Bello and Mary Lynn Rajskub.

In Search of Fellini” was directed by Taron Lexton and written by Cartwright and Spotted Cow President Peter Kjenaas. Ambi Distribution represents worldwide rights and is presenting the project to buyers at the the Berlin Film Festival’s European Film Market.

The movie was inspired by Cartwright’s early years in the entertainment industry, when she set off to “find herself” in Italy before establishing herself in Hollywood.

Spotted Cow is also partnered with Parkside Pictures and Dark Rabbit Productions on a film with James Franco entitled “The Institute,” to be released in late 2016. Cartwright is a producer on the project. »

Watch: 3-Minute Supercut Highlights The Many, Many Film References In ‘The Simpsons’

9 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At this point, it’s safe to say “The Simpsons” has changed television forever. The animated series — which, in case you’ve forgotten, premiered way back in 1989, and is now in its 27th season — has seen its fair share of ups and downs, and become a sort of hotbed of critical debate, with some quick to write off every season after thirteen, and others clinging to the endless nostalgia of Homer and company. Granted, certain seasons have wound up unanimously reviled, while certain episodes have becomes staples of the genre. Throughout it all, though, the show has quite simply remained a wildly popular cultural staple.

Film Review: ‘Zootopia’

14 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From the company that brought you the utopian simplicity of “It’s a Small World” comes a place where mammals of all shapes, sizes and dietary preferences not only live in harmony, but also are encouraged to be whatever they want — a revisionist animal kingdom in which lions and lambs lay down the mayoral law together, and a cuddly-wuddly bunny can grow up to become the city’s top cop. Welcome to “Zootopia,” where differences of race and species serve no obstacle to either acceptance or achievement. It is, in short, a city that only the Mouse House could imagine, and one that lends itself surprisingly well to a classic L.A.-style detective story, a la “The Big Lebowski” or “Inherent Vice,” yielding an adult-friendly whodunit with a chipper “you can do it!” message for the cubs.

Doctor Who, geek fandom and Comic Book Guy

What happens when the episodes you love don't match everyone else's? Here's what it feels like to do fandom "wrong"...

This article contains spoilers for Doctor Who: Love & Monsters

During my first year at university, I met up with some other Doctor Who fans. This was 2007, when Tennant-mania was starting to overwhelm Britain and a then-45-year-old show was inexplicably the height of cool. After drinks and awkward small talk in the student bar, we turned to the question. The question you ask whenever you meet another fan. The question that’s hidden in plain sight...

No, not “Doctor Who?” Not even ‘who’s your favorite Doctor?’ Rather: “What’s your favorite episode?”

As we went around the group, the obvious candidates were named: Blink, Human Nature, Dalek, Utopia. Titles that are hallowed in the annals of Nu-Who history. Finally, it was my turn to contribute. »

5 years ago today: We said goodbye to ‘Friday Night Lights’

9 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

“Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can’t Lose.” It was five years ago today that Friday Night Lights fans said goodbye to Coach Taylor, Tami, Julie, Matt, Riggins, and the rest of the residents of Dillion, TX they had grown to love. On February 9, 2011 the series finale aired on DirecTV’s 101 Network. A re-broadcast of the fifth and final season aired a few months later on NBC (where the show debuted in 2006). NBC had cut that deal with DirecTV for the final three seasons of the show because it never gained a large audience. But it was hailed by critics and had a strong devotion from its small following. Celebrating 10 years since Fnl’s premiere, some cast members of the show are set for a reunion at Atx Fest this June. Other notable February 9 happenings in pop culture history: • 1953: The Adventures of Superman first aired in Los Angeles (a syndicated »

Comedy Community Feeds Charity at Beefsteak Dinner

8 February 2016 4:19 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hollywood’s funniest and hungriest actors, writers and executives got together Saturday night at Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles for the fifth annual Beefsteak dinner to benefit the Los Angeles Food Bank.

Organized by “The Simpsons” producer Matt Selman, ABC Studios comedy exec Cort Cass and writer-actor Eric Wareheim, the yearly event raises money for the hungry by feeding approximately 650 entertainment bizzers plenty of meat, in the tradition of the early-20th century beefsteak political dinners. Guests included “Mad Men’s” Ben Feldman, B.J. NovakPhil Rosenthal, Busy Philipps, Bob Odenkirk, Brianna Brown and John Mayer.

Unlike the last century’s men-only dinners, women are welcome at the 21st century version, which featured Jonathan Sadowski and Joe Thomas doing magic tricks and music from the Shrines and DJ Jesse Kivel. While the dancing acrobatic cows of last year’s event didn’t make a return appearance, an actual onstage wedding added to the celebratory atmosphere. »

'Weird Al' Yankovic Action Figure Unveiled by Neca Toys

8 February 2016 4:14 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Some fans have waited over 40 years for this next item. And it doesn't disappoint. Parody King and Pop Music legend 'Weird Al' Yankovic is finally getting his own action figure! In fact, he's getting several. But today, we have a look at the flagship launch of this new line, which shows the legend in his prime.

Neca is bringing a whole line of 'Weird Al' Yankovic action figures to a store near you later this year. We don't have an exact street date. Nor do we have any confirmation on which 'Weird Al' figures we may see. Though, the fan outcry for a Fat action figure based on the hit single from the comedian's seminal 1988 release Even Worse sounds like a sure thing.

The first 'Weird Al' Yankovic figure comes with two different custom-made heads. The first is vintage Al with his short afro, glasses and mustache. »
