Modern Family Season 10 Episode 6 Review: On the Same Paige

On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 6, Phil's on a mission to save his class. When he turns on the charm, he dials it up too far, attracting some young attention.

It appears that Phil misunderstands Paige's attention. She's Luke's girlfriend!!

Or maybe Phil doesn't misunderstand at all. What's going on with Paige?

"On the Same Paige" revolves around misunderstandings. 

It wasn't surprising to find out that Luke's girlfriend was using him to get to Phil. It Was surprising that Luke wasn't upset.

When Paige threw herself at Phil, Luke didn't seem all that surprised. He didn't seem to care at all.

You'd think he would be disconcerted about a person using him like that, but the kid took it in stride.

Luke's reaction didn't seem authentic. Anyone who's gotten used by another person knows how it feels.

South Park Season 22 Episode 5

Once again, South Park maintains its good record on Halloween. Having churned out a few classics early in the show’s run, and nailed some topical ones more recently, Matt Stone and Trey Parker clearly have a hell of a lot of fun coming up with seasonal episodes. They often show a love for the horror genre–The Shining parody in “A Nightmare on FaceTime” was a high point–and are willing to mix in some surprises–Korn’s guest appearance, Satan’s birthday attendees, and Randy doing crack last year–to get us in the holiday spirit.

It may be easy to mix in a bunch of visual gags and cheap deaths for a laugh, but

‘St. Elsewhere’: Why You Should Revisit TV’s Groundbreaking Medical Drama

‘St. Elsewhere’: Why You Should Revisit TV’s Groundbreaking Medical Drama
There’s a famous episode of South Park called “Simpsons Already Did It,” where Butters proposes various schemes that he then has to abandon upon being reminded that someone on The Simpsons had previously tried it. It was a reflection of the innovation and influence of Bart, Homer and friends, and of the long shadow they cast over so many shows that followed them. It’s damn hard for any animated comedy — including The Simpsons itself, which, like South Park, is still making new episodes 16 years after “Simpsons Already Did

Freddy Krueger And Jason Voorhees Star In New Episode Of The Freddy Funko Show

Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees have a rematch in the second episode of new animated YouTube series The Freddy Funko Show.

This being a relatively family-friendly affair, however, the stars of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th don’t settle their differences with violence, but with some seasonal pumpkin-carving. Along the way, you get a few winks to the settings of both franchises, plus Krueger gets to reference his famous “Welcome to prime time” line from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.

Speaking of prime time, this isn’t the only comedy show that the dream demon has appeared in this month, with Robert Englund also reprising his most famous role for an episode of The Goldbergs. Though the actor initially turned down the offer, a letter from the sitcom’s creator prompted him reconsider Freddy’s legacy, concluding that the character no longer belonged

How Toto’s ‘Africa’ Became the New ‘Don’t Stop Believin’

Nothing sums up 2018 like the fact that Toto’s “Africa” has become our unofficial anthem. It’s a song that’s ridiculous by definition — an Eighties ode to Africa by a bunch of L.A. rock dudes who’d never set foot in the place. But something about this song speaks to our moment. It’s the new “Don’t Stop Believin’” — a mega-cheese classic of Eighties sentiment that’s gotten bizarrely popular in recent years, beloved by hipsters and moms and tone-deaf karaoke singers screaming “I bless the rains down in Africa!

Apu may not be gone just yet.

In response to film producer Adi Shankar’s claim that “The Simpsons” was going to quietly drop the character, showrunner Al Jean said that Shankar has nothing to do with the long-running animated series.

The Simpsons” has found a solution to its Apu problem… by dropping the character “to avoid the controversy,” according to film producer Adi Shankar.

“I got some disheartening news back, that I’ve verified from multiple sources now: They’re going to drop the Apu character altogether,” said Shankar in an interview with IndieWire. “They aren’t going to make a big deal out of it, or anything like that, but they’ll drop him altogether just to avoid the controversy.”

It should be noted that Shankar is not affiliated with the show.

In a statement, Fox pointed out that the character appeared in the Oct. 14 episode “My Way or the Highway to Heaven,” but did not elaborate any further. Previously, “Simpsons” creator Matt Groening said there’s no been no discussions about retiring the character.

Robert Englund Explains Why He Returned As Freddy Krueger For The Goldbergs

Freddy Krueger’s appearance in the upcoming Halloween episode of The Goldbergs marks a strange and unexpected twist in the character’s decades-spanning history. So while plenty of A Nightmare on Elm Street fans would probably embrace the return of the classic killer regardless of the context, the news still left many of us wondering why actor Robert Englund chose a sitcom as the project with which to reprise his most famous role for the first time since 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason.

Show creator Adam F. Goldberg has already provided his side of the story, recalling how he finally convinced Englund after months of contact. And now, speaking to the New York Post, the star himself has offered some clarification, explaining how Goldberg convinced him that Freddy’s ‘80s heyday was worth revisiting through this nostalgia-heavy series.

The New ‘Halloween’ Can’t Erase a Franchise It Constantly Acknowledges

Spoilers for Halloween 2018 are discussed below. David Gordon Green’s Halloween is a memba-berries movie. South Park coined the term when referring to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, singling out a sequel that was more about reminding people what they liked in the past rather than doing something new. What makes Green’s Halloween fascinating as a bit of nostalgia is how it tries to strip away the franchise mythology while constantly reminding you of the original Halloween. It’s a movie that can be aggressively self-aware as it tries to both dismantle the other movies and …

Here Are 12 of TV’s Best Halloween-Themed Episodes (Photos)
It’s the spookiest time of year, so we rounded up some of the best Halloween-themed episodes of TV (in no particular order) for your post-trick-or-treating binges.

How I Met Your Mother”: “The Slutty Pumpkin”

The slutty pumpkin is a stand-out episode of Halloween-themed television not only because of its adherence to the holiday, but because it became a piece of “Himym” lore, referenced throughout the sitcom’s nine seasons and even inspiring a later Halloween episode titled “The Slutty Pumpkin Returns.”

Friends”: “The One with the Halloween Party”

Who could forget Chandler’s pink bunny costume a la “A Christmas Story”? or Ross’s potato — sorry, spud-nik — outfit? Oh yeah — Sean Penn was in this episode, too! All these things plus Rachel freaking out about her maternal instincts puts this episode in the Halloween history books.

South Park Season 22 Episode 4 Review: Tegridy Farms

Randy goes crazy and stuff on a goofy episode about vaping.

This South Park review contains spoilers.

South Park Season 22 Episode 4

The most cutting satire in this episode of South Park takes place in the opening seconds. Just as it did in the previous episode, “Tegridy Farms” opens by recalling the season premiere with an establishing shot of the school as the sound of gunshots rings out. I really appreciate this continuing commentary on the normalcy of gun violence in America. It’s blunt in a way few other programs are willing to be and it’s brilliant how, much like the real issue, it was focused on briefly but is now pushed aside so that other topics can be addressed.

In terms of importance, there is a yawning gulf between school shootings and the main topic of “Tegridy Farms,” which is vaping. Specifically, the stance South Park seems to
