The 11 Best Emmy Tweets From Funny Gay Guys

23 September 2013 4:09 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

It’s 2013, so I assume you’ve already acquainted yourself with the bad news: Internet commentary about TV is almost always better, or at least funnier, than TV itself. This was especially true in the case of last night’s Emmys, an unusually somber event given that it was supposed to be celebrating our current “golden age of television.” When weren’t we in a golden age of television again? 1997 or something? Please. Don’t tell me you didn’t love The Single Guy.

Fortunately, funny gay guys (and I) live-tweeted the Emmys. Here are ten of my favorite quips from that posse on Merritt Wever‘s big night.

1. Chris Schleicher thinks one Big Bang Theory star treated a comic legend like his dim brother Darryl (or his other dim brother Darryl).

I’m Jim Parsons and I have several Emmys. Here’s Bob Newhart. He has one.

Showtime’s drama pilot The Affair has added Joshua Jackson to the cast. The drama focuses on two married couples and an affair that creates turmoil between them. Jackson will play a long island cowboy whose wife starts an affair with a character played by Dominic West.

Too bad Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 didn’t last long enough to get Joshua Jackson.

EW drops the terrible no-good news that Lynda Carter will appear as herself on an episode of Two and a Half Men. I’m telling myself that show probably won’t give Carter a scene to justify watching Two and a Half Men.

NBC lists 12 “Must See TV” Shows You Might Not Remember. I look at it as twelve reasons why NBC has been stuck at the bottom of the ratings.

I had so much hope for The Single Guy, at least until it debuted. »

Donal Logue Talks Vikings, Copper, And Sons Of Anarchy… Well, Mostly Not Actually

17 April 2013 3:38 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Apart from being one of my favorite actors, Donal Logue is also coming up in three of my favorite shows. Unfortunately (maybe), once in a while you find yourself in an interview that turns out, somehow, not to actually be one. You have your questions set out. You know the shows and the talking points. Your subject is equally prepared to run through the routine of extolling the virtues of whatever they happen to be working on. But, it doesn’t end up going that way.

These are the interviews which ultimately find you running out of time, and scrambling for something, and spitting out, “Umm… tell me about the show.”

Or, to put it another way, these are the interviews that make you glad you don’t work for someone, who might not think it’s actually completely brilliant that you killed thirty minutes talking to Donal Logue as »

The Guide's 1,000th issue - 1994-1999

4 January 2013 4:02 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Revisiting 18 years of pop culture, from Britpop to the Spice Girls, via Father Ted

1994: Mad fer it!

Issue No 1 Previously a broadsheet section in the newspaper, The Guide was expanded into a magazine proper on 27 August 1994. Nobody bothered to archive a copy, though, so the best we can do is show you a Xeroxed reproduction of the cover. At the time we were concerned with the weird state of science shows on TV and had a wander around the Notting Hill Carnival.

Spotted! All Saints From a review of their single Silver Shadow: "Born in the same year and in the same area of London, what else could these girls do but form a swingbeat group? Their debut is a sickly Atlantic Starr cover with an idiotic number of mixes, encompassing every dance style bar Morris. Eternal may rest easy in their Timberlands." Note: swingbeat was a form of »
