Neil Patrick Harris Freaks Out on Some Kids Over 'Thomas the Tank Engine'

22 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Neil Patrick Harris may love Thomas & Friends a little too much.

In a Funny or Die video to commemorate Thomas the Tank Engine's 70th anniversary, the Oscars host is seen freaking out on some kids. Nph shows up at a "Tankie" party and is disappointed to find out what his tiny fellow fans like about the lovable train.

"Since I'm morally obligated to not do that in my real life, I thought it'd be potentially cathartic to shout at paid professional child actors instead," Harris, 41, told Mashable of the sketch. "They were lovely -- once they stopped crying." »

The Big Bang Theory season 8 episode 16 review: The Intimacy Acceleration

2 March 2015 5:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Big Bang Theory deals with the absurdity of grief in an episode that edges towards being distasteful but never crosses the line...

This review contains spoilers.

8.16 The Intimacy Acceleration

No matter what, it would have felt in bad taste to have a ‘normal’ episode of The Big Bang Theory follow last week’s sudden death of Mrs. Wolowitz. We may have gotten Howard and the group’s reaction to her passing at the end of the previous episode, but it was kept until the final few moments, and this was the show’s chance to explore it a little further.

Sitcoms are often the best format with which to deal with the absurdity of grief. They’re about extremes of emotion, whether that’s laughter or tragedy, and so The Big Bang Theory’s decision to have Howard and Bernadette focused on the matter at hand, but keep the »

The Last Man On Earth Season 1 Review

28 February 2015 2:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review is based on the first two episodes of season one, which were provided for us prior to broadcast.

The words “The Year 2020 (two years after the virus)” appear on screen against the backdrop of a barren desert, before dissolving as a Rv bus speeds across. Phil Miller (former Saturday Night Live star Will Forte) drives himself from coast to coast while sporting a bushy, untamed beard. His meek calls of, “Hello?” echo across the empty cityscapes. He drives his bus through a mall in New Jersey. Dejected and in stained clothing, Phil spray paints “Alive in Tucson” on a highway sign, then quietly re-enters his bus and drives away.

Balancing wry wit with these slower, pensive moments, The Last Man on Earth brings the sweep of dystopian television shows into the comedy realm. Co-created by 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller »

How Did Neil Patrick Harris Predict The Oscars? – 5 Possible Solutions To His Magic Trick

27 February 2015 7:55 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

John Shearer/AP

In the aftermath of the 2015 Oscars, the internet’s been abuzz with discussion. Did Birman really deserve to win Best Picture? Is it right to applaud rich actresses for talking about a pay divide? Is John Travolta really that out of touch? Should you ring your parents?

But, more so than any of those, what had everyone talking was Neil Patrick Harris’ hosting. Namely, how he seemed to let everyone (read: Twitter) down. But in all the condemning of racially tricky jokes (getting the star of The Help to perform a night-long menial task) and awkward delivery, one big part of the night has been overlooked – his prediction trick.

Well known as a fan of magic (he’s President of the Board of Directors of Hollywood’s Magic Castle and repeatedly called on his hobby for How I Met Your Mother), everyone expected Harris to do some dazzling feat of the mystic. »

'Two and a Half Men,' 'Parks and Recreation,' and How to End a Series

27 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

I don't envy any showrunner who has to write a series finale, especially after observing the very different reactions over the past few days to the final episodes of "Two and a Half Men" and "Parks and Recreation."

Consensus on the former seems to be outrage mixed with bafflement, while response to the latter seems to have been copious tears mixed with warm fuzzies.

Looking at both finales, however, it appears each long-running sitcom ended with an episode that was true to what the series was about. The literally cartoonish "Two and a Half Men" finale, which (spoiler alert) wrapped with pianos being dropped on both the characters and on creator Chuck Lorre, was a fittingly nihilistic send-off for a show that seemed to find all its characters loathsome and had little regard for the humanity of any of them, except insofar as Lorre could use them for punching bags and punchlines. »

Interview: 'Battle Creek' star Kal Penn on 'House' reunions and pot differentiation

26 February 2015 10:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Kal Penn is walking a different beat in the CBS police dramedy "Battle Creek," but this is in many ways a return for him. You might not necessarily remember, but Penn has been working in the CBS family steadily since he ended his sabbatical working for the White House. He followed a recurring arc on "How I Met Your Mother" with a regular role on the short-lived "We Are Men" before landing on "Battle Creek," which was created by Vince Gilligan, but is run by David Shore. Shore, of course, worked with Penn during his multi-season run as the ill-fated Dr. Lawrence Kutner on Fox's "House," a series that appears on the resume of many of the "Battle Creek" scribes. And when one of the first things we learn about Penn's Detective Fontanelle is that he's a user of medicinal marijuana, which ties Font in with Penn's long and beloved »

Parks and Recreation review – a perfectly pitched finale

25 February 2015 6:12 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

While many shows have tried to confound fans’ expectations, the final episode, which showed the characters’ futures, played to sweet and uncynical type

A series finale can go a few ways. It can enrage fans by leaving the story open-ended – like The Sopranos. It can enrage fans by negating everything the show always stood for – like Lost. Or it can enrage fans by letting them know that the entire premise was a lie – like How I Met Your Mother.

But Parks and Recreation, a show that miraculously held on at NBC for seven seasons under thenear-constant threat of cancellation, has always striven to please its fans. It didn’t want to enrage them at all, so it took a page out of Six Feet Under’s playbook and let us know how all of the characters end up. Guess what? Happily ever after.

'Parks and Rec' icon Ron Swanson rose above sitcom tropes to become legend

24 February 2015 3:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I am in denial at this point. That's the only way I'm going to make it through the conclusion of "Parks and Recreation" tonight on NBC. I will tell myself that this is just the end of another season and next year we'll go back to Pawnee to spend more time with Leslie and Ben and Andy and April and Donna and Garry and Tom and Jean-Ralphio and Mona Lisa and Joan and Perd and Jamm and the entire insane cast of characters that we've been introduced to over the six years of the show. As much as I'll miss the ensemble, there is one character I will miss more than any of the others, and I'm sad because he was such a spectacular creation, one of those singular sitcom creations that remind us what we love about this particular form. Ron Swanson was a fairly unfocused version of himself »

Power Rangers 'Bootleg' Movie Stars James Van Der Beek, Is Awesome

24 February 2015 12:05 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Power Rangers fans, prepare to have your collective childhood morphed.

A new (and highly Nsfw) 14-minute film, hailing from producer Adi Shankar (A Walk Among the Tombstones) and music-video director Joseph Khan, and co-starring James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), offers a glimpse of what a full-fledged, gritty Power Rangers movie would be like — and it’s pretty perfect.

Without giving too much away, the film (simply titled Power/Rangers) likens the multi-colored protectors to child soldiers, recruited to fight in an intergalactic war they have no business being in, and reveals the grim »

‘Birdman’ Wins Best Picture, Director at Politically Charged Oscars

22 February 2015 5:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Politics took center stage at the 87th Academy Awards on Sunday, as winners and presenters used the widely watched telecast to draw attention to everything from civil rights to whistleblowing.

It was also a very good night for “Birdman,” which beat out its chief competitor “Boyhood” for best picture, director, original screenplay and cinematography honors, tying with “The Grand Budapest Hotel” with a leading four wins. The backstage comedy was clearly embraced by Oscar voters, although it remains little seen by the general public. With domestic ticket sales of less than $40 million, it ranks as the lowest-earning Best Picture winners since 2009’s “The Hurt Locker” and one of the lowest-grossing recipients in the past forty years. It’s also an unlikely winner in that it takes on Hollywood’s comic book movie fixation with its portrait of a superhero franchise star desperate to hang up the cowl, daring to poke »
