John Dunsworth, aka Mr. Lahey of Trailer Park Boys has passed away suddenly at the age of 71 according to Variety. The news came as a shock to many associated with the show, as his daughter Sarah (who is also on the series) said the actor passed after a short and sudden illness.

‘Two Men, Two Cows, Two Guns’ is an Equation for a Darkly Farcical Film

Short of the DayFrom writer-director Pardis Parker.

As a parent-to-be of two adopted children, I can tell you firsthand that home visits from social workers are stressful under the best of circumstances. Someone has come to your house, your sanctum, to evaluate and scrutinize every detail of it and you and gauge whether or not you’re a worthy caretaker, and you never really know what’s going to reflect poorly on you until it does. But if I were to make a list of things you don’t want to happen while entertaining a home visit, near the top without a doubt would be “guy shows up unexpectedly, covered in blood, with a dead cow he needs help milking.”

That’s the set-up for the riotously funny short film Two Men, Two Cows, Two Guns, from writer-director Pardis Parker: an older couple are entertaining a social worker looking into their care of Jake, a

TV Recap: ‘Haven’ Gets Morbid and Duke Gets Played

We open this week’s “Haven” as Dave (John Dunsworth) wakes with a start after dreaming again about running through the forest and finding the deer. This time, however, the dream shows the deer morphing into a nude female and screaming. Other bodies of settlers are scattered nearby and we see an open thinny in nearby.

Here's What's New on Netflix for September 2014

It's almost September, which means a whole new slew of titles on Netflix! August proved pretty lucrative on the quality title front, but it looks as though September it's going to blow the rundown out of the water.

TV takes spotlight this month, with the latest full seasons of "The Walking Dead," "New Girl," "The League," "The Blacklist," "Arrow," "Bones," and "Parks and Recreation" primed and ready for streaming before their fall premieres. And fans still mourning the loss of "How I Met Your Mother" (in more ways than one) can rewatch the ninth and final season to their heart's content. Ah, memories. Showtime's recently departed "Californication" can be seen in its entirety (Seasons 1 -7) as well, starting September 1. That's a lot of TV.

Movie fans have plenty to look forward to from Netflix in September, too. Sam Raimi's undersung 1998 thriller "A Simple Plan" hits the streaming service September
