14 Best TV Comedies on Netflix Streaming

2 September 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Missed that episode of "How I Met Your Mother" with Katy Perry? Or when Liz Lemon fell for astronaut Carol (Matt Damon) on "30 Rock?" Thanks to the power of Netflix, you can now stream those entire series or just select episodes.

And (you may have heard) they've got their own original comedy series and they're pretty darn good: "Grace and Frankie," "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," and "Arrested Development" also calls Netflix home now.

You can also check out lesser-known sitcoms like "Sirens," or catch up with classics like "M*A*S*H."

Of course, if you wait too long, these shows may no longer be available. As with all comedy, timing is everything.

11 brilliant TV deleted scenes you might have missed, from Doctor Who to Game of Thrones

27 August 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

How you doin? Last week a deleted scene from Friends went viral, and it was fascinating to watch a rarely-seen moment from a much-loved sitcom.

With hours of footage shot for TV shows, some will never see the light of day. But thanks to DVDs and YouTube, we can see bonus scenes that were cut from broadcast. Here's 11 great clips that may have passed you by...

1. Game of Thrones: Bronn gives Shae some deadly words of advice

In the original episode, viewers just see Tyrion ask Bronn to escort Shae away in order to save her life, only for her to turn on him in dramatic fashion. This scene adds an extra layer of context as to why Shae betrayed her former lover so badly, and how Bronn might have more business smarts than he lets on.

2. Doctor Who: Rory says goodbye to his dad

Is Daniel the Real Bully in 'Karate Kid'? An Investigation

25 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Maybe Barney Stinson was right all along in "How I Met Your Mother": The real hero of "Karate Kid" is Johnny, and the bully is Daniel.

This video, by YouTube user J. Matthew Turner, argues much of the same thing. In his view, Daniel (Ralph Macchio) is "a violent sociopath who moves to a California town and begins tormenting a local boy and his friends." Meanwhile, Johnny (William Zabka) is a reformed ex-degenerate who's trying to get his act together.

Sure, Johnny is a flawed hero, but he doesn't instigate their beach fight, nor play a prank on him at school, nor cause a multi-car collision, nor engage in a sport of which he doesn't know the rules.

It's a brilliant bit of revisionist history, but the idea was already floating around thanks to Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris). He considered "Karate Kid" the tale of "a hopeful young »

What's the Best TV Show Finale? IMDb Users Say...

25 August 2015 1:04 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Most people have a favorite final episode and can think of more than a few "least favorite" finales as well. Well, to see if there was any clear consensus, a Reddit user decided to compile the data from IMDb to see which finales most people liked or found disappointing.

The first chart (you can click on the image to see it larger in a new window) looks at the average episode ratings from IMDb users (different from Nielsen ratings) relative to their ratings of a show's last episode. This is a good indication of how viewers feel about the finale when compared to the rest of the series. In some cases, a finale was better than most episodes of the series (Glee, Charmed, Newhart) while others felt the last episode was a big disappointment (How I Met Your Mother, True Blood, Dexter).

7 Things We Learned From Quentin Tarantino’s New Interview

24 August 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Quentin Tarantino is never one to hold back his opinion. The acclaimed filmmaker dished on everything from the possibility of another “Kill Bill” installment to his distaste for Cate Blanchett movies and “True Detective” in his interview with New York magazine. And if you ask Tarantino, Ben Affleck is no David O. Russell when it comes to casting films.

The writer-director also teased his upcoming Western thriller, “The Hateful Eight.”

Here are the most interesting tidbits from the colorful interview.

The “Kill Bill” franchise may still have some life in it:

“No, it’s not off the table, but we’ll see.”

Tarantino loved “How I Met Your Mother,” but hated “True Detective” from the get-go.

“The last two shows that I watched all the way were ‘Justified’ and ‘How I Met Your Mother.'”

“I tried to watch the first episode of season one [of ‘True Detective’], and I didn’t get into it at all. »

This Video Reveals the Worst Problem With The Karate Kid: Daniel Is the Bully and Johnny Was the Victim

24 August 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

How I Met Your Mother fans know that Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) always thought that Johnny (William Zabka) was the real hero of The Karate Kid and not Daniel (Ralph Macchio). But finally we have solid and well thought-out evidence that Daniel was just a big ol' bully and Johnny was the victim. In a YouTube video posted by J. Matthew Turner, we get a very compelling recap of the original Karate Kid that forces us to look at it from Johnny's point of view. Daniel is basically a "violent sociopath who moves to a California town and begins tormenting a local boy and his friends" while Johnny is just the "flawed hero." And Mr. Miyagi?

Did 'Dexter' Have the Most Disappointing Finale of All Time? This Graph Says Yes

21 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If a show you never really liked has a lame finale, well, what did you expect? But if a show is popular and well-respected, and it pulls a "Dexter" in the final episode, then you end up with a massive popularity free-fall, as documented by a Reddit user in a new series of graphs.

Someone called ChallengeResponse recently posted charts ranking TV finales by different metrics, based on IMDb ratings. You can check them out here. The first one shows the ratings of series finales relative to their average episode ranking. Showtime's "Dexter" ended up way at the bottom, because most of the episodes had been rated high, so the average was high going into the finale; fans expected a lot from the final episode, but they hated it so much that its rating dropped more than any other final TV episode. On the flip side, "Glee" is at the top, »

The End Of The Tour – The Review

20 August 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Film makers wishing to explore the life of celebrated individuals can often be thwarted by the lack of material, particularly when said individual is a most private person who did not make themselves easily accessible. And often those closest, be they family or long-time friends “circle the wagons” around this potential cinematic subject. This may have been a big problem for the people behind this new film, a look at the all-too brief life of celebrated, but very private, writer David Foster Wallace. Fortunately access was granted via David Lipsky and his best seller “Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself”. But as you’ll see, this film is not the standard movie bio, not a “rags to riches”, birth to stardom tale. It’s the story of the friendship between the two Daves, struck up in just a few short days, specifically at The End Of The Tour. »

Jack Reacher 2 May Have Found A New Female Lead

14 August 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Even though Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is still currently wowing moviegoers across the world, it looks as though Tom Cruise isn’t going to return as Ethan Hunt immediately. He'll reprise that role before too long, but first Cruise wants to make a sequel to another action film that he made with director Christopher McQuarrie: Jack Reacher. The follow-up looks like it has made a huge leap forward, as it has reportedly acquired its female lead in the shape of Cobie Smulders.  The Wrap reports that The Avengers, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and How I Met Your Mother actress is now in early discussions to star in Jack Reacher 2, which is scheduled to start filming this November. But rather than holding these talks with the writer and director of the original, Christopher McQuarrie, she chatted with Ed Zwick, who has replaced the Academy Award-winning writer and »

Neil Patrick Harris has opened up about how Ant & Dec helped him prepare for the Us version of Saturday Night Takeaway.

Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris will launch next month and the How I Met Your Mother star revealed that Ant & Dec have been very involved with the show.

"We are doing a test show the week before we launch and then we will do our first live show," he said. "Ant and Dec are coming over [to New York] for that. They are going to come and be a part of it.

"I went to the UK and was a guest announcer for their show, so I got to see what it was like – not only in front of the camera, but also behind the camera. I was very interested in finding out how the systems worked. It's a big machine – not in a corporate way, but in a very exciting way. »

ABC Family Taps Into 20-Something Mentality with Comedy ‘Kevin From Work’

12 August 2015 3:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Kevin From Work” heats up ABC Family’s summer slate with a fresh new take on the workplace comedy that makes sense for twentysomethings who have just recently — and confusedly — entered the workforce.

“I think a lot of people in my age group are doing jobs that they’re not passionate about, but the thing that keeps them going and keeps them moving are the people in their lives, and certainly, that’s Kevin’s situation,” 28-year-old Noah Reid, who stars as the titular character, tells Variety.

The sitcom follows Kevin, who announces his love to his office crush Audrey (Paige Spara), before accepting another job, only to find out that his new offer has been rescinded and he’s stuck at his job — and with his co-worker.

“This is also the time when you’re searching for a partner, for a mate. Kevin sees in Audrey a woman that »

Casting Roundup: ‘Big Bang Theory’ Casts Leonard’s Other Woman & More

12 August 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) will meet the other woman in the life of Leonard (Johnny Galecki) when “The Big Bang Theory” returns. Plus, Fox’s “Urban Cowboy” has been found, and a “True Blood” alum is heading over to Starling City in today’s casting roundup.

Melissa Tang may ruffle some honeymoon feathers on “The Big Bang Theory,” as she’s been cast as Mandy, the woman Leonard kissed on that North Sea expedition, much to Penny’s dismay, TVLine reports. Tang — who is no stranger to Chuck Lorre land with a recurring gig on “Mom,” and also having appeared on one episode of “How I Met Your Mother” — will first appear in episode two of Season 9.

Before Mandy (Tang) comes into the picture, “Big Bang” picks up on Sept. 21 a few hours after where Season 8 left off with Penny and Leonard heading to Sin City to make their relationship official. »
