The spookiest day of the year is nearly here, and several shows have already released their very special Halloween episode pictures. It's only a matter of time before primetime is invaded with costumes and candy! Over the years, we've seen some pretty memorable Halloween-themed episodes, especially on shows that have paid homage to the holiday every year, like How I Met Your Mother, The Office, and Parks and Recreation. Take a trip down memory lane to see some of our favorite characters in costumes from this year and years past. Source: ABC Family, ABC, NBC »
Translating movies and television for international markets can be a tricky business, as we discovered last year when we assembled this collection of 20 titles that got lost in translation.
But if you want to descend to a whole new level of weirdness, you need to look beyond the official channels. Whether it's a pirated disc being hawked in the street or a bona fide copy resold in unofficial packaging, these are products where the normal quality standards simply do not apply.
Below we've rounded up 11 of the world's most bizarre bootleg DVD covers, featuring dodgy Photoshopping, garbled Babelfish-style synopses, and entire actors being accidentally dropped in from other movies or TV shows.
God, True Detective was a great show. Remember that episode where Rust and Marty go to Vegas and live it up in faux-Paris before narrowly escaping an exploding building on the back of a phoenix?
One of the highlights of the original series was Gary (Martin Clunes) and Tony's (Neil Morrissey) quest to find a new pub after The Crown gets a revamp. Gary's system of ranking their locals with different categories is a great tool for real-life pub crawls after moving somewhere new. Try it!
With this in mind, we pondered which pubs from TV history would rank well using a system similar to Gary's? We've chosen just a handful of famous watering holes in order to find the best one. The only rule is that they need to serve alcoholic drinks, so Central Perk doesn't count.

The multi-talented Neil Patrick Harris opened up about a variety of subjects – including his upcoming Oscars hosting gig and the controversial How I Met Your Mother finale – during a recent SiriusXM "Town Hall" interview with Entertainment Weekly Editor Matt Bean. But the juiciest tidbit is that Harris (and his husband, actor David Burtka) previously turned down roles in the first season of American Horror Story following cameos in the 2011 comedy A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas.
"In it, he plays sort of my drug dealer, and I really am straight »

The actor was named as the host of the 87th Academy Awards on Wednesday (October 15).
13 times Neil Patrick Harris proved he is the ultimate Oscars host
When asked by EW's Matt Bean for Sirius Xm who he would want to duet with during the show, he said: "Gaga? Adele? That would be cool. Pink? We could do circus things."

He added that he wants to respect the gravitas of the ceremony "without getting heavy and boring".

Harris also brought his long-running CBS series How I Met Your Mother to a close in the spring, »

With even more deadly creatures on the loose, Tremors 5 continues the films' hallmark combination of adrenaline-laced suspense, explosive action and tongue-in-cheek humor.

The Graboids eventually morphed into even more deadly creatures known as Ass Blasters. In this all-new adventure that travels halfway around the world to South Africa, the Graboids and »
Now that it’s finally been released on DVD, we look at the TV shows that built on The Wonder Years’ foundations…
The Wonder Years, famous for being the show that made a generation of kids nostalgic for a decade they’d never even set foot in, finally arrived on DVD this month following the resolution of a years-long music rights tangle. Neal Marlens and Carol Black’s comedy drama ran for six seasons between 1988 and 1993 on ABC, following Fred Savage’s Kevin Arnold through his late-sixties and early-seventies suburban adolescence.
Thematically, stylistically, and tonally, The Wonder Years blazed a trail for television comedy and teen-focused drama that was subsequently traipsed down by numerous shows, from the superlative Freaks And Geeks and My So-Called Life to How I Met Your Mother, Malcolm In The Middle and countless others. Its innovative film-style use of a single-camera, lack of laughter track, fourth-wall breaking, »
Neil Patrick Harris has no shortage of things to do: He stars in the box office hit Gone Girl, recently finished a 20-week run as the title character in Broadway's Hedwig and the Angry Inch, just released his first book, and will be hosting this year's Oscars. But one opportunity he missed? Starring on American Horror Story. Long before Twisty the Clown made his debut on this season of the FX show, American Horror Story showrunner Ryan Murphy asked Harris and his husband, David Burtka, to play a couple in the show's first season, Murder House. But the two had »

The giant worms known as Graboids are back to snack on unlucky surface dwellers in Tremors 5, but standing in their way as always is the indomitable Burt Gummer (Michael Gross). Filming on the latest installment in Universal’s horror franchise that began in 1990 is now underway in South Africa, with Jamie “Randy Meeks” Kennedy starring opposite Gross and Don Michael Paul in the director’s chair:

Over the past few years, we’ve seen some terrific Oscar hosts (the inimitable Billy Crystal), some awful ones (the painfully unfunny Seth MacFarlane) and some ones whom we’re not really sure even remember being there (here’s looking at you, James Franco). But for next year’s ceremony, the Academy has opted to turn to someone who is almost guaranteed to deliver a legen (wait for it!) dary show. That’s right, folks – meet your new host, Tony winner Neil Patrick Harris.
While this will be Harris’ first time hosting the Oscars, he has plenty of experience, having hosted the Tonys four times and the Emmys twice. The new gig puts him one show away from a hosting Egot, with only the Grammys left to check off (and just wait, he’ll get there).
Meanwhile, the How I Met Your Mother alum is having a pretty spectacular month. »

It has been officially announced that Neil Patrick Harris is set to host the 87th annual Oscar awards ceremony in 2015. Harris is one entertaining dude, and I think he will absolutely kill it as the host for this event. No one will ever beat Billy Crystal, though. I've been watching the Oscars since I was a kid, and that guy is my all-time favorite Academy Award host. Harris is sure to give viewers an incredibly entertaining show, though, and I'm glad that they chose him to take on the challenge.
The nominations for the 87th Academy Awards will be announced live on Thursday, January 15th, 2015, at 5:30 a.m. Pt in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The actual Oscar ceremony will be held on Sunday, February 22nd, 2015, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC.

To mark the thespian's appointment, here are a collection of career highlights which show why Nph is the perfect Academy Awards host.
1. Showstopping opening numbers
A Neil Patrick Harris-hosted show wouldn't be complete without several large scale musical numbers, but the opening piece is the biggest spectacle. When Nph is hosting a show, his performances are often the most memorable moments the next day.
He finds a perfect blend of mickey-taking and adoration about the subjects he is singing about, and his timing is impeccable. If the Academy wants someone who is safe, yet cheeky, Nph is perfect.
2. Playing the ultimate diva
If you want an example of flamboyant stage presence, just watch him in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, »
