Ashe never got to see a ton of modern classics from his youth, so we’re making him watch them all as a nostalgia-less adult. Check out the inaugural article for more info. Listen, if you didn’t immediately start singing Halloween songs (that you probably made up) the second it turned October 1st, we can’t be friends. Syfy does 31 days of Halloween, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let the people responsible for Tara Reid’s career resurgence show me up. All month long, I’m watching Halloween movies I haven’t seen and talking about them to people who probably have seen them. (That would be you guys.) We’re going to kick things off with a movie people have been telling me to watch for years: Hocus Pocus, starring The Divine Miss M and Carrie Bradshaw and Peggy Hill. (Seriously, she did the voice in King of the Hill. Look »

While it remains to be seen what comes out of Lifetime’s TV version of Brittany Murphy’s career and personal story, one thing is clear: the beloved actress had a number of iconic roles despite her short-lived career. Everyone from Clueless Tai to Shellie from Sin City is here as we look back on the most iconic Murphy roles we hope get covered in her Lifetime story.
In the words of Cher’s best friend slash makeover challenge, these roles were totally “doable.”
(If you can’t get enough of her film roles below, then check out her looks throughout the years in the gallery above.)
Tai, Clueless (1995)
In her second film role, Murphy played the high schooler who wasn’t a virgin and could drive. The role turned out to be a total Valley Girl who defied all stereotypes.

A version of this story first appeared in the Aug. 29 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. King of the Hill creator Mike Judge arrived first to Quixote Studios in Hollywood. Cagney & Lacey's Barbara Corday pulled up soon after. Then The Simpsons producer Al Jean; Sex and the City's Michael Patrick King; and The Dick Van Dyke Show's Carl Reiner. By 4:30 p.m. on the afternoon of Aug. 6, 19 others — each producers of an Emmy-winning comedy or drama — had joined them. Over the next hour and a half, the gathering of producers, who have

Walmart prides itself on being the place where you can "Save Money, Live Better," and one Texas teen took that motto to the extreme recently, camping out hidden in one of his local superstores for four days. In a plot that recalls both the 2000 Natalie Portman vehicle Where the Heart Is, as well as a 2003 episode of King of the Hill, the unnamed 14-year-boy spent days living in two makeshift "compounds" he had constructed in a Corsicana, Texas, Walmart. According to local affiliate CBS Dfw, the boy cleared two spaces behind the store's baby and home goods aisles, stocking them with food, »

Lifetime has announced that it's working a a biopic about actress Brittany Murphy (Sin City, 8 Mile, Don't Say a Word, "King of the Hill," "Happy Feet), who died in 2009 at the age of 31. It was reported that she passed away from cardiac arrest. But just five months later, her husband Simon Monjack, also passed away. He was only 39 years old. Even though police couldn't find any evidence of murder, Murphy's father claims that the couple has been poisoned. It's not clear how much of Murphy's life will be covered and how much of the conspiracy theories will be brought up. We'll see ourselves when the film airs on September 6th. Amanda Fuller (Last Man Standing) will play Murphy and Sherilyn Fenn ("Twin Peaks") will play Murphy's mom Sharon. »

Before creating Silicon Valley— the new HBO comedy that Thursday morning garnered five Emmy nominations—Mike Judge says he “hadn’t had a hit in awhile.” Specifically, he was referring to a pair of high-profile 2009 projects: the ABC animated series The Goode Family and the Jason Bateman-led feature film Extract, both of which were received unenthusiastically by audiences. Despite those hiccups, flops have been the exception rather than the rule for the creator of Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill, Office Space, and Idiocracy. So when it was announced that Silicon Valley was up for Emmys in Best Comedy, »

On the latest season of Louie, Pamela (Pamela Adlon) delivers her first line —“Hi, stupid asshole” — right after literally kicking our antihero in the ass. “Why are you so mean to me?” he asks a few episodes later. “Why do you like it?” she replies. Louis Ck and Adlon — an Emmy winner for voicing 13-year-old Bobby on King of the Hill — previously shared acidic repartee as spouses on the series Lucky Louie, which HBO canceled in 2006 after one season (sample plot: Louie ruins a romantic weekend by calling his wife the C word). Before reuniting with Ck for Louie, where she’s also a consulting producer, Adlon began a seven-season run as bikini waxer Marcy Runkle on Californication, which concluded with Sunday night’s series finale. We spoke with Adlon about the Louie scene that made us cringe, bar-hopping with Blondie, and reading porn penned by her dad.It’s been four seasons, »

Starz today announced the greenlight of The Girlfriend Experience, a 13-part anthology series produced by Transactional Pictures. Inspired by the 2009 Magnolia Pictures film of the same title, Steven Soderbergh and Philip Fleishman will serve as executive producers along with independent filmmakers Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz, who will also write and direct on the series.
The scripted anthology series will feature 13 half-hour episodes.
The Girlfriend Experience explores the relationships of the most exclusive courtesans who provide their clients with far more than just sex. These purveyors - or GFEs (Girlfriend Experience) - share intimacies more common to romantic partners or husbands and wives, becoming quasi-lovers and confidants who are richly paid for their time.
Chris Albrecht, CEO of Starz had this to say in his statement.
"We are all »
When Pamela Adlon's oldest daughter was going into middle school, the actress suffered a mini-meltdown. Another mom had said that she allowed her children – a seventh grader and a nine-year-old – to watch Californication, the sexually explicit Showtime comedy series about debauched yet well-meaning novelist, Hank Moody (played by David Duchovny) and his equally depraved friends, one of whom is the professional pubic-hair waxer Marcy Runkle, played by Adlon. "I was thinking, 'How is she explaining "stunt cock" to her kid – or is she not?'" Adlon says in her »
There’s an old saying about buses in London; you wait ages for one and then two come at once. The same apparently applies for Halo games on the Xbox One; we’ve waited what feels like ages (well, two years) and now we’re getting four at once. Rather than be bitter and cynical about this, we’re simply emptying our calendar from November 11th onwards and embracing the fact that Halo is set to take over our lives once more.
The Master Chief Collection had been rumoured long before Microsoft’s E3 presentation earlier this month but still – finally seeing it announced felt awesome. Running through all four campaigns will be an absolute treat (especially getting to relive Halo 2 in a new shiny coat of paint) but it’s the multiplayer details that have us wishing we could hibernate until November. The Master Chief Collection will feature every Halo map ever released, »

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill go undercover as improbable college students in 22 Jump Street, in theaters now, and one of the film’s comedic highlights is the duo’s new dorm-mates, the Yang Twins: a fictional pair of hilarious, heavy-lidded, perpetually narcotized twins who finish each other’s sentences played by the Lucas Bros, a real-life pair of hilarious, heavy-lidded, perpetually narcotized twins who finish each other’s sentences.

Cartoons historically have not been meant for adults (just ask your grandfather, who probably still stubbornly feels that way). Mostly, with some exception cartoons were simply made as amusement for children that were often made as cheaply as achievable. They were just cartoons, and nothing more. This way of thinking thankfully changed during the late ‘80s.
In 1987, The Tracey Ullman Show made its debut to critical acclaim, but almost no public interest. However the show would go down in history for introducing us to the screwball cartoon world of The Simpsons. After initially being featured in 90 second shorts on the variety show, Bart, Homer, Marge, Lisa, Maggie and the rest of Springfield were skyrocketed to irrefutable super-stardom. The Simpsons debuted in 1989 and the rest is history. The show would go on to change the industry perspective of what an animated series could be. The show prompted a tidal wave of adult cartoons, »

Mike Judge could have simply directed Office Space and lived off that fame for the rest of his life, but when you couple that cult classic with his past work creating Beavis and Butt-Head and King of The Hill it's hard not to consider him to be one of the most steadfast comedic geniuses of our generation. Give him a half hour time slot once a week on HBO to poke fun at today's tech world and it's a surefire bet you have struck comedic gold. Silicon Valley is the comedy series that HBO needs in the wake of Eastbound & Down's departure. The show was one of my most hyped of the year and thankfully the results have lived up to my very high expectations. With a great cast and all of the wit and bizarre charm that comes courtesy of a Mike Judge product, Silicon Valley will definitely »

In Silicon Valley's "Third Party Insourcing," the satire and character-building were both exceptionally high. It was also just a hilarious episode, and reminiscent of some of Mike Judge's other work (like King of the Hill in particular). As the Pied Piper guys work towards the TechCrunch competition deadline, they're forced to bring in a ringer (Austin Abrams) who can help Richard with his blind spot, programming cloud. Truths are then revealed that bring everyone back to reality. Hit the jump for why a fetus is better than you (maybe). Things are coming down to the wire for Pied Piper, and the small operation is having to confront the fact that they still are in need of more help. Richard may have aged 40 years in the last seven weeks (according to his terrible doctor, played by the awesome Andy Daly), but he still doesn't know cloud. For that, Jared »

Fox will shake up its Sunday animation block for the first time in nearly a decade next fall, pairing live-action sitcoms “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and newcomer “Mulaney” on the night with “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy.”
Suffering ratings declines due to an over reliance on aging warhorse “American Idol” and the now-canceled singing contest “The X Factor,” Fox said it would introduce new shows on nearly every night of the week for the 2014-15 TV season. The network formally unveils its new lineup today at New York’s Beacon Theater. (Full Schedule Posted Below)
Kevin Reilly, Fox’s chairman of entertainment, has articulated a strategy of being nimbler in the decision to order series, rather than relying solely on pilots produced in the traditional spring development season. And he has set in motion a year-round schedule of originals that calls for Fox to regularly air limited series that have big ideas and names at their center. »

Vice President Selina Meyer is officially getting another term now that HBO has renewed its profanely funny political satire Veep, which stars Rolling Stone's current cover star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, for a fourth season. The network has also rebooted the tech-industry sitcom Silicon Valley, which was created by Mike Judge of Office Space, Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill fame, for a second season, according to E! Online.
Swearing-In: 25 Great 'Veep' Insults
With Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley premiering on HBO to rave reviews, it’s the perfect time to celebrate his past work: Beavis and Butt-Head, King of the Hill, Idiocracy, and the most quotable of them all: 1999’s Office Space. Then why not celebrate with a Quote Quiz? The game works Hangman-style: You type in letters to fill in the quote that goes with the picture, but if you get more than three letters wrong, you lose that question. (If you're stuck, click for a hint on the upper-right-hand corner of each picture.) When you’re all done, make sure to share your score in your latest Tps report. I’m gonna need that by 5 p.m. On your mark, get set, quote! »
