Film directors trying to express themselves in East Germany had a tough row to hoe, yet quite a few of them dared to stray beyond the confines of social realism.

Supergirl delivers a bright, optimistic finale, which makes it a refreshing change for the TV superhero genre. Now, about season 2...

1.20 Better Angels
Since Supergirl has now come to a close, and no second season has been confirmed (though I feel like it must be imminent), this is a good opportunity to look back on what's it turned out to be over the last six months on air.
It started as a an ultra-girly, Devil Wears Prada-esque disappointment to many, but others were thrilled to have a superhero show that didn't centre around an angsty male character, killing off its female characters and choosing instead to focus on stories that had been told over and over again. Supergirl was different from the very start, and it revelled in that difference. It was feminine and bright and optimistic, and this finale dealt in all of those things. »
If you’re enjoying Arrow‘s Season 4 flashback storyline, you’re on an island.
The storytelling device, which since the CW series’ launch has revealed how a mop-topped billionaire brat was honed into the hero known as Arrow, offered compelling correlations during Seasons 1 and 2, as Oliver Queen (played by Stephen Amell) first washed up on Lian Yu and learned some hard lessons at the hands of Yao Fei, Slade Wilson and the Amazo captain.

Per the site, Shandling passed away after he was transported from his home to a Los Angeles-area hospital.
On Larry Sanders, Shandling was a five-time Emmy Award nominee for Lead Actor, and he grabbed gold once (with Peter Tolan) for Outstanding Writing. The comedian also amassed three American Comedy Awards across his career, 12 CableACE Awards, two Golden Globe nods and a pair of Writers Guild Award noms (both for Larry Sanders).

Paul Reubens, the actor-comedian behind everyone's favorite gray-suited manchild Pee-wee Herman, may be the worst person to ask about the character's legacy. Before a rare public screening of Pee-wee's Big Holiday at New York's 92nd Street Y Tuesday night, the writer-actor sat down with film critic Joe Neumaier to discuss his career arc from his early days with improv legends the Groundlings to TV icon and film star. A talk with the affable Reubens is more of a free-association, meandering conversation than a standard Q&A, as the hour-long chat »

9.17 The Celebration Experimentation
Milestone episodes can go one of two ways. They can either be fairly run-of-the-mill stories imbued with an emotional resonance the audience, but not the characters, are aware of, or they can be tirelessly self-congratulatory. Three guesses which one The Big Bang Theory opted for.
So this, the two hundredth episode of the show, has been presented to us as a summation of what the writers clearly love about their work thus far. Sheldon. It's all about Sheldon and how much everyone loves Sheldon. It's about Sheldon's insecurities and triumphs, about his relationships with his friends and his obnoxious inability to acknowledge what's going on around him. This says a lot, and none of it's very good.
Now that The CW has confirmed a Vampire Diaries/Originals crossover for later this season, it’s time to talk details.
“The crossover was born out Stefan needing a place to escape,” executive producer Julie Plec tells TVLine. “He’s on the run. He needs to go somewhere where magic can’t find him, and we realized he can go to New Orleans where there’s that bar where magic doesn’t work.”
