I can't completely explain why, but Bob's Burgers is one of my favorite shows. It's always cracking me up and fills a void left behind with Futurama and King of the Hill.

Meanwhile, the official site has released details of the ‘Drop Zone’ game mode:
Similar to “King of the Hill”-style experiences, the objective in Drop Zone centers on drop pods falling through the atmosphere onto the planet surfaces. In tight 8-versus-8 matches, Rebel and Empire teams fight to capture and control these pods.
When you locate a drop pod’s landing site, make your way to it and trigger the short claim process. Your team will win if it captures five pods, or control the majority of them after the 10-minute match is up. If a pod is constantly changing possession with no team able to defend it long enough to claim it, »

To date, Dice and publisher EA have showcased some of the nominal game modes that will be available in Star Wars Battlefront – namely Walker Assault, Blast and the sky-scrapping Fighter Squadron mode. But as teased late last month, one of the new additions that will feature in October’s beta test is that of Drop Zone, with EA touting the game mode as a “King of the Hill-style” experience.
Swapping the bombastic 40-player action of Walker Assault, Drop Zone is said to be a more confined gameplay experience, with two teams of 8 battling it out to control the lion’s share of the drop pods that litter the alien environment. Much like other modes in the galactic shooter, the roster of players will be divided into the Rebel Alliance and the Empire at random.

As a proud owner of all current generation consoles, I often find myself surprised at how the trio of ‘new’ consoles has brought about a few resurgences of different genres. Most recently, it’s clear that remakes, remasters, and retro-style games are as popular as ever, though you could link that to the fact that the ‘first and second’ generation of gamers have all grown up, and nostalgia is a powerful force, especially in the market.
Personally, I’m in love with party games, and their revival has been met with open arms. The Wii U has seen success with its unique brand of asymmetric multiplayer (I still find myself popping in Nintendo Land every so often). #Idarb, a criminally underrated ‘sports/party’ game of sorts saw an exclusive release on the Xbox One earlier this year, and the PlayStation 4 is home to Towerfall Ascension and Sportsfriends.

It’s hard to believe, but almost nine years have passed since the first Gears of War debuted on Microsoft’s Xbox 360, kickstarting the rise of one of gaming’s most popular series. Since then, two sequels and a prequel have made their way to the popular, last-gen console, and confirmation of a current-gen sequel has surfaced.
After being revealed at June’s E3 expo, the original Gears of War experience is set to make a comeback this very week. Known as Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, it comes to Xbox One touting 1080p resolution and a plethora of content, including 60 Fps multiplayer, customizable settings, unlockable comics, tournament controls, additional game modes and all of the behemoth’s previously released Dlc. As such, not only does the package come with 19 different multiplayer maps, but it also includes several campaign chapters that were formerly exclusive to the game’s PC port. »

Grr, argh. Sit, Ubu, sit. I made this! What’s the story behind the production company tags added onto our favourite TV shows?
Closing logos have evolved into a TV production company’s tiny stamp of individuality. They’re a single snippet of screen time not at the mercy of network notes, audience feedback or sponsorship concerns.
A closing tag doesn’t need to sell a show, tell a story, or lasso an audience back for the next episode. It’s simply a signature, a few seconds entirely belonging to the creatives, to do with what they will.
As such, closing logos are as self-indulgent or esoteric as the production company wills them. They’re perhaps the only place in television production where in-jokes, family photos, personal homages (or extended rants in the case of one comedy producer) and kid-drawn scribbles usually found taped to the fridge door are entirely welcome. »

Comedian Jack Carter died June 28 of respiratory failure at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 93. He was also an actor, emcee, singer, mimic, dancer, and director in a career that spanned over seven decades.
He began his professional career appearing on Broadway in “Call Me Mister.” He later appeared on Milton Berle’s “Texaco Star Theatre” shows, and it was during this time that Carter got his first real break.
For two years, he hosted the early television variety program “Cavalcade of Stars” prior to having his own show on NBC, “The Jack Carter Show,” which lasted three years, and was a part of the “Saturday Night Review.” He also co-starred in several of the Colgate Comedy Hours with Ed Wynn, Jimmy Durante, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis and Donald O’Connor.
In addition to “Call Me Mister,” his Broadway credits include “Mr. Wonderful” and “Top Banana.” He hosted the »

He was one of the youngest TV executive producers in the medium's history, created not one but two successful animated programs, hosted the Oscars and had a blockbuster comedy bring in beaucoup box office receipts. He has contributed $1 million to the Reading Rainbow kickstarter fund and produced the recent reboot of the classic science series Cosmos; Harvard named him their 2011 Humanist of the Year. Yet Seth MacFarlane has managed to inspire an intense, rabid hatred of his raunchy comedy and retro-dude attitudes that's been as fervent as the fanbase that »
One needn’t have spent much time on dating sites to know that guys have a tendency to exaggerate where size is concerned, so fans of Warner Bros.’ 2012 striptease sleeper should set their expectations accordingly over “Magic Mike Xxl.” Meanwhile, someone in the studio’s marketing department deserves a raise for so enticingly fluffing the title of a sequel that sheds the newbie (Alex Pettyfer), the emcee (Matthew McConaughey) and nearly all traces of plot, yielding an encore whose putative selling point is getting to know the fellas who shook their stuff in the next-to-buff. Trading the “A Star Is Born” angle for a rambling road-trip format, “Magic Mike Xxl” offers creative dance numbers for demos underserved by the original — post-menopausal divorcees, women of color and, in one odd scene, gay fans open to seeing these hunks in drag — but seems unlikely to measure up to its predecessor’s $113 million score. »
