The Best TV Pilots of the 21st Century, Ranked

  • Indiewire
There has been a lot of debate in recent years about the relevancy of the series pilot. In an age where so many cable networks, streaming services (and even broadcast networks) like to go straight to series, bypassing the pilot process, the question of whether the entire pilot process is necessary has been an open debate.

A few years ago, when then-Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly proclaimed the death of pilot season, he was referring to the short, frenzied period of time when every network goes after the same talent in order to produce multiple pilots all at once. Reilly wasn’t criticizing the art of the pilot itself, but just the outdated idea of everyone developing shows all at once.

Pilots, after all, can still be a good judge of whether a show can be sustained — and if it has been cast, written and produced properly. On the flip side,

Zach Braff teases a potential Scrubs revival as a TV movie

It’s been eight years since Scrubs finished its run (or nine, if you’re discounting that rebooted ninth season), but as he prepares to make his return to ABC for the new comedy Alex, Inc., star Zach Braff has teased a potential reunion for the staff of Sacred Heart during an interview with Variety.

“We might do a TV movie — we daydream about that” said Braff when asked for his thoughts about revisiting the comedy series. “We’re all doing so many different things that we love, so the idea of going back and signing a long contract doing years and years of Scrubs is not on our minds. What’s more realistic is Bill and I are very close and we often laugh about what would it look like to do a two-hour movie — like what Psych did.”

Scrubs ran on NBC for its first seven seasons, before

The Five Funniest Movie Scenes Starring John C. McGinley

John C. McGinley is the kind of guy you don’t always know how to take since he could be joking and he could be pulling a straight face while he’s laying into someone without any attempt to be nice. His time on Scrubs unfortunately counts as TV so that won’t be seen in these clips which is too bad. As Dr. Cox he was hilarious and yet so hardcore in his sarcasm that he could rattle just about anyone, except for a few select people that he was never able to get to. In the movies though his attitude swings

  • DailyDead
There are 172 demons in the town of Willard’s Mill, and it’s up to retired sheriff Stan Miller (John C. McGinley) to stop them. There’s only one problem: Stan would rather take a nap.

Watch John C. McGinley Watch Himself in Office Space in New Promo Video for Stan Against Evil Season 2

  • DailyDead
"Office Space... there's a comedy. They ought to call it Bobspace. It's all about the Bobs." If you watched the first season of Stan Against Evil (which I highly recommend), then you know that Stan (played by John C. McGinley) would rather just sit back in his chair and enjoy his retirement instead of getting blood sprayed on him all the time while slaying demons and saving the world. Well, in a new promo video released by IFC, McGinley gets to do just that, although what he ends up watching is himself as one of the Bobs in the cult classic comedy Office Space.

You can watch the new promo video below, and in case you missed it, watch the teaser trailer for the second season of Stan Against Evil, which premieres on November 1st on IFC.
