And Now, A “Key & Peele” Appreciation Post

“Key and Peele,” the sketch comedy show from Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, comes to an end tonight, after five seasons. To end the show was their choice. It wasn’t forced off the air due to bad ratings or pulled for any reason. In a July interview with The Wrap, Key said, “It was just…

Will Ferrell And Kristen Wiig Are Starring In A Bonkers Lifetime Movie

I normally don’t fuck with Will Ferrell (epic “Drunk In Love” karaoke notwithstanding), because as funny as he is, no one can grate more. But this, I can get behind: Ferrell and Kristin Wiig will be starring in a new Lifetime movie, “A Deadly Adoption.”
As THR first reported, the campy thriller was already filmed and will be…

The Ladies Of “Mad Men” Look Good As Hell

I hardly remember what happened at the end of the last half-season of “Mad Men,” but it doesn’t matter — this picture of the ladies of “Mad Men” wearing their best late-’60s to early-’70s poly-chiffon-couture, plus whatever that glorious mess that Megan is wearing got me super, super excited. Look at Betty! Look at that…

This Is The Best Episode Of “Dr. Phil” You’ve Ever Seen

Even the “best” episode of a show like “Dr. Phil” would be setting the bar pretty low, but this clip removes the shrill, nightmare-y quality by presenting us with nothing but reaction shots. No dialogue. In the words of the YouTuber who posted it, “They say it best when they say nothing at all.”…

I hope your Wednesday night is free and clear of all commitments, because what you need to be doing is smoking a giant blunt and watching the season 2 premiere of “Broad City” on Comedy Central. It is the best show on Wednesdays, hilarious, ribald and lewd in all the right ways, and the chemistry…

2014 Happened In Slow Motion

Apparently slo-mo was the video effect of choice in 2014, because as this video demonstrates, everyone used it. Beyoncé, “Gone Girl,” “True Detective,” “The Lego Movie,” “The Fault In Our Stars,” Taylor Swift, even the “Turn Down for What” video.
