But brands like Batman and Captain America are more than 75 years old and provide a rich history for storytellers and collectors alike.
In this, my second of three articles exploring Geek Culture’s fascination with The Phantom, an 80 year old brand, I’m taking our conversation to Ireland.

Bill Lawrence may have kept his fingers crossed, but evidently that wasn’t enough to appease the TV gods. The creator of “Scrubs” and co-creator of “Spin City” and “Cougar Town” has had two shows canceled over the past few days: NBC’s romantic comedy “Undateable” and CBS’ buddy cop show “Rush Hour.” “Undateable” made it through three seasons, but “Rush Hour” got yanked after just one. But the writer-producer seems to be taking it all in stride, if his Twitter account is any indication. In fact, he told fans that he hopes to keep at least one of his current projects going, »

Donald Faison and his wife, CaCee Cobb, brought their son Rocco and daughter Wilder to the Safe Kids Day event in La on Sunday. The family of four posed on the grassy red carpet together before heading inside, where the real fun began; Donald and Rocco let loose in a giant ball pit, and the former Scrubs star got a little more than he bargained for while trying to go down a plastic slide. Donald met up with Mark-Paul Gosselaar during the event, which also brought out Drew Barrymore, Tamera Mowry, and Kelly Rowland and her look-alike son, Titan. CaCee and Donald's family day comes just a couple of weeks after they escaped to Mexico to celebrate Zach Braff's 41st birthday in Mexico. Donald palled around with his Bff and former costar in the pool, and CaCee showed off her postbaby body in a bikini while lounging with friends. »

Zach Braff rang in his 41st birthday on April 6, and over the weekend, the former Scrubs star celebrated in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with none other than his Bff and former costar, Donald Faison. Donald and his wife, CaCee Cobb, were among the group of friends who helped to fete Zach, which they did in a hilarious way; not only did the crew hang by the pool wearing towels with Zach's face printed on them, but they also snapped photos in masks of Zach's mug, too. True to form, Zach and Donald showed off their long-time bromance by cuddling in the water for an Instagram picture, which Zach captioned, "Birthday weekend with the wind beneath my wings."

This is one birthday party that Zach Braff may never forget.

"Contemplating 41 in my birthday towel. #Cabo #Blessed." While specific details remain on the down-low, Instagram has given fans more than a few clues into this sun-filled trip.

CBS has exhausted so many permutations of the buddy-cop format that the network has inevitably resorted to adapting and recycling. It does a bit of both with “Rush Hour,” a light-hearted series version of the Chris Tucker-Jackie Chan movie trilogy, pairing Justin Hires and Jon Foo as the wisecracking L.A. detective and taciturn Hong Kong cop, thrown together here on an open-ended basis.
Establishing the template naturally requires a bit of fancy footwork, and as an indication of the tone the network is seeking, the task has been entrusted to producers Bill Lawrence — usually associated with sitcoms, like “Scrubs” and “Cougar Town” — and Blake McCormick. In rapid-fire fashion, the pilot, directed by Jon Turteltaub, briskly sets up Hires’ Det. Carter as a cop who breaks rules — to the point of irritating his captain (a slumming Wendie Malick) — and Foo, who started out as a stuntman, as Det. »
