Community plays dress-up again this week, to middling results. Here's our review of Intro To Recycled Cinema...
This review contains spoilers.
6.8 Intro To Recycled Cinema
“We keep filming crap and eventually Annie will reach down her shirt for a laser bomb.”
We're sure that there's something in this episode of Community that wishes it was Chris Pratt. Popular, attractive and seemingly well-maintained as he is, the Parks & Rec regular turned movie star comes in for a whole lot of affectionate flak in an episode that's not exactly the leanest or sharpest marquee leader of the season.
In a sixth season that's been rather more grounded than the high concept super-dystopic romps of yesteryear, Intro To Recycled Cinema is the first episode since the premiere that's found an excuse to dress up the cast and throw them into a role-playing situation.
Following on from his acclaimed stage performance as Mr. Miyagi a few weeks back, »
Could it be? Finally, a decent Raj episode of The Big Bang Theory? Here's our review of The Graduation Transmission...
This review contains spoilers.
8.22 The Graduation Transmission
As bad and as badly treated as all of the characters on The Big Bang Theory are, Raj has more often than not come out the worse. He's the butt of the jokes, the target for slightly over-the-line racial humour and jokes about his sexuality, and he's the odd one out without an on-screen girlfriend.
The writers have done some strange things with the character over the years, rarely settling on one set of characteristics as with the others, and he hasn't evolved quite as well as the other three, either. This week, depending on how you see it, may have been one of Raj's best episodes in ages.
This series has become one about unpleasant people stuck in the confines of their own arrested development. »
Two eerie scarecrow creations make for an unsettling atmosphere in one of two new photos from Rob Zombie's 31. Currently in the editing stage, Zombie's latest Halloween-set horror film will feature eclectic, creepy characters aplenty, including Sick-Head, Doom-Head, Sister Serpent, Father Murder and more.
"Welcome to my next film. It is called 31. It is the story of five random people kidnapped on the five days leading up to Halloween and held hostage in a place called Murder World. While trapped inside this man-made Hell they must fight to survive playing the most violent game known to man... a game called 31.
31 has no rules. 31 has no boundaries. It is ever so simple. Do whatever you can do to kill your opponent before they kill you. Keep this up for 12 hours and freedom is yours.
Who are the opponents? Well... a group of vile, filthy, blood-thirsty clowns known as The Heads. »

Celebs may constantly be in the public eye, but you really never know what they're going through behind closed doors. Actress Cobie Smulders dropped a bombshell during her interview with Women's Health's May issue (you know, the one where she's posing topless and flaunting her insane post-baby bod) when the How I Met Your Mother star revealed that she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer while shooting season three of the show. "I had tumors on both ovaries," Smulders, who was 25 years old when she received the diagnosis, tells the mag, "and the cancer had spread into my lymph nodes and surrounding tissues." She adds that it took multiple surgeries over the course of two years to remove »
Cobie Smulders kicks major butt, on and off screen. Over the last several years, the Avengers: Age of Ultron actress has made a name for herself as both a comedy wiz and an action hero -- as quick with a joke as with a weapon -- and now she's adding cancer survivor to her resume, too. Unbeknownst to fans, the How I Met Your Mother star has been carrying a secret since season three of her CBS sitcom in 2007, when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer [...] »

Howard as an alpha male? The latest episode of The Big Bang Theory explores the group's less frequently addressed character quirks...
This review contains spoilers.
8.21 The Communication Deterioration
For the second week in a row, The Big Bang Theory has decided to focus on Penny’s career change – a shift that happened at the beginning of the season but never really had much of an impact on her or other characters. It’s always surprising when the show carries anything over from one week to the next, but this is a thread for Penny that’s been ongoing since the first season.
So why was it wrapped up so quickly, with little justification in terms of comedy? Well, I get the feeling that the power dynamics in Leonard and Penny’s relationship is about to become a bigger issue, and she needs her well-paying, respectable job for that to happen. »
A little over a year ago, my wife wondered why I was still sitting down every Monday night for "How I Met Your Mother," given how much I would complain about it to her afterwards. "Is this one of those hate-watching things?" she asked. I told her that life was too short for hate-watching — especially in this new Golden Age of Too Much Good TV — and that I was with "Himym" til the end because the show gave me enough occasional glimpses of what it was like when it was good that I kept sticking around to see if they could get it together one more time, especially for the finale. (As it turned out, no they couldn't.) "Oh, I get it," she said. "You're not hate-watching. You're hope-watching!" And there it was: Hope-watching. It isn't the act of enduring a bad show for the sole purpose of mocking it, »

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is getting closer to wrapping up its second season, which currently features the exploration of the Inhumans and the battle between Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) S.H.I.E.L.D. versus the “real” S.H.I.E.L.D., led by Robert Gonzalez (Edward James Olmos). The show is also setting up a number of crossovers with the upcoming Marvel Studios film, Avengers: Age of Ultron, which comes out in theaters on Friday, May 1.

The smoldering Miss Smulders! Avengers: Age of Ultron actress Cobie Smulders posed topless on the May 2015 cover of Women's Health, showing off her ridiculous body in tiny shorts and bikini bottoms. Though this wasn't Smulders' first time stripping down for a magazine, the How I Met Your Mother alum, 33, explained how it differed this time. "I wasn’t trying to appear 'sexy,' which was interesting," she noted. "Because it’s a women’s magazine, I feel like being topless is more about being confident and about being happy [...] »

Now that's one incredible post-baby bod! Cobie Smulders stuns on the May cover of Women's Health Magazine in a pair of tiny short-shorts and not much else! The "How I Met Your Mother" alum gave birth to her second child just a few months ago -- and her body already looks smoking. While this wasn't the actress' first topless photo shoot, she still had to give herself some prep for the revealing photos. "It was my first topless photo shoot where I wasn’t trying to appear ‘sexy,'" she explains. "Because it’s a women’s magazine, I feel like being topless is more about being confident and about being happy with your body rather than trying to excite somebody else. That’s what this cover was more about." The 33-year-old continues to be unfiltered in the rest of her interview with the health and fitness mag, opening up »

Whoa, mama! Here's a side (literally) of Cobie Smulders that you may have never seen before. The How I Met Your Mother alum bared some serious skin for the cover of Women's Heath May issue where she playfully posed topless, wearing nothing but a pair of tiny denim shorts and her killer smile.
