The panel guests on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher dug into the issue of guns manufactured by 3D printers on Friday. They examined the constitutional issues that the government would encounter in the effort to ban those weapons or curtail access to 3D manufacturing technology. During the discussion, Maher asserted that the goal of individuals attempting to expand access to plastic firearms is similar to those of antagonists in films – getting undetectable firearms close to the President of the United States to execute an assassination. »

Plus more renewals, cancellations and series orders, a sodomy trial on Da Vinci’s Demons along with the finales for Once Upon a Time and Revenge. News
In the lead-up to the upfronts, NBC gave an expected sixth season order to Parks and Recreation. It also cancelled troubled comedies Whitney (which got rid of its most interesting aspect when Maulik Pancholy‘s character was written out) and 1600 Penn as well as comedies Up All Night (which was expected, considering the show’s many troubles) and Guys with Kids.
Leslie Knope wins another one.
Fox took care of an expected cancellation notice, axing Touch. However, with Kiefer Sutherland free, Fox is now talking about reviving 24 as a limited series. I’m all for the return to comedy mini-series on Broadcast TV.
Meanwhile, fans of Nikita can breathe a sigh of relief as the series’ fourth season was announced. It sounds like »

Chicago – Craig Robinson is in the swirl of two media events in the next two weeks. His latest film “Peeples” – in which he plays the romantic comedy lead – opens on Friday. The famous TV series he has been featured in, “The Office,” has its final episode after nine seasons on Thursday, May 16th.
Through it all the unflappable Mr. Robinson portrays his laconic character style with depth and personality. He was born in Chicago, and did much of his early training through improv comedy classes at the famed Second City. He developed a musical act with comedian Jerry Minor called “L Witherspoon and Chucky,” and has appeared on HBO, Comedy Central, “Real Time with Bill Maher,” and “The Jimmy Kimmel Show” in that persona. But he is best known as the character Darryl Philbin on “The Office,” creating his own particular vibe and presence on the successful series.

HBO's Friday night chat salon "Real Time with Bill Maher" continues to turn heads, as Bill took on a liberal professor over Islam a few weeks back, and then took the Boston police to task last week for their .unprofessional. gun fire aimed at the boat where Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was hiding even though he was unarmed. .I agree that we shouldn.t have given the kid his Miranda rights because he probably had information. We wanted to take him alive. We all agree with that.. there could.ve been bombs out there, there could.ve been an accomplice. So we wanted to take him alive. If you agree with that then what the cops did there was unprofessional. That.s »

HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" brought real debate about the differences between major religions on Friday night, as Maher made a criticism of the corrupted and radicalized elements of Islam while noting that there were many Muslims who were good people, rational, educated and who shunned these violent factions of their faith. On Friday night, host Bill Maher interviewed Cal State-San Bernardino professor Brian Levin, director of the Center for Study of Hate and Extremism, who defended Islam despite the events in recent days, and noted that religious extremism isn.t only a problem with Islam.

On Saturday night’s Real Time With Bill Maher, the panel noted the controversy over Jay-z and Beyonce’s recent trip to Cuba, prompting a discussion about the U.S. embargo towards the island. In come the Cuba ‘experts’: Maher, as he has done previously, criticized the policy, calling it “the stupidest policy we have, not naming the drug war. Curiously, but not surprisingly, out of the Maher’s four guests, not a single Cuban exile or Cuban-American was among them to discuss the issue. »

HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher" has long been a favorite with grown-ups bored by traditional newscasts. Now the network reinvents the newsmagazine with "Vice," a no-holds-barred weekly series for a tech-saturated generation. It premieres Friday, April 5.
Created by the international youth-oriented media conglomerate also named Vice and executive produced by Maher, "Vice" takes viewers on a harrowing, sometimes hilarious journey to the far corners of the globe in search of jaw-dropping tales untouched by mainstream news outlets.
"Eventually it became clear that the stories we did best, that we liked the best, involved this process we call immersionism -- a documentary style where we just go in and live with the people, press record and watch as the story unfolds," says Vice co-founder Shane Smith, who heads into the field with fellow correspondents Ryan Duffy and Thomas Morton to explore stories as wide-ranging as the Taliban's recruitment of children »

With just days to go until the season 3 premiere, Ron talks us through 10 things he wants more of from the superlative Game Of Thrones...
No TV show is perfect, but for me, Game of Thrones is as close to perfect as television gets. When asked to consider the things I’d want to see in season three and beyond then, my answer was simple: I want more. More battles, more magic, more George R.R. Martin, more animated GIFs of Joffrey’s face on the receiving end of a well-aimed slap… more of everything that makes Game of Thrones one of the best shows on TV.
1. “More wine" - Cersei Lannister
This one is fairly obvious. When ten or eleven episodes of something are incredible, the biggest demand is for more of the same. The books, which number in the thousands of pages at this point, »
TV: The Railway: Keeping Britain On Track
Profiling some of Britain's busiest stations and lines, this excellent eight-parter basically confirms that, yes, our rail network is held together by little more than gaffer tape and goodwill. That said, the people who try to keep our trains running on time against all the odds are absolute saints. So stop shouting at them, yeah? Catch the lot over on iPlayer before it expires on Tuesday.
