Last night I watched Community with Joel McHale, NBD. It’s TRUE! I had the pleasure of spending the Greatest Moment of Our Time (i.e. the night Community returned to its rightful place in NBC’s Thursday-night lineup) at Caroline’s on Broadway in NYC with none other than...

30 Rock recap: Double dose of new episodes leaves us unsatisfied

After such a rough year with so little Lemon in it, I’m sure we were all happy to find that this week we were given two brand new episodes of 30 Rock. When I say that I was happy, I am really understating it. I screamed with excitement like a little girl when I realized we...

Last time we saw Candidate Knope, she was enveloped in the warm and fuzzy metaphorical embrace of her co-workers that sprouted directly from their construction of a gingerbread house (oh, Christmas, ye are but a distant memory). See, she had been dumped by her campaign managers...

All hail the return of the non-hipster-bashing Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, satirists of the twee and zeitgeist-y IRL and artisanal picklers, IPL who yes, can pickle that. Jewel cases, parking tickets, broken off heels: all pickleable. Let’s go have a cocktail. Skit...

This is it, you guys. The last episode—and last recap—before Community’s Hiatus of Indeterminate Length (HOIL). Let’s not be sad—let’s appreciate Community while we’ve got it. Especially since it’s the most joyous of times and joyous of places: Christmas at...

Despite leading actor status, Steve Buscemi can’t shake creep roles on SNL

Despite leading actor status, Steve Buscemi can’t shake creep roles on SNL

I prepared for this week's episode of Saturday Night Live by watching Fargo twice, hoping that the show would present even a quick reference to the classic Steve Buscemi movie. Alas, it was not to be. But still, Buscemi did a competent job as host, although it feels like he was...

Improvements abound this week, as Leslie and Ben make a new park, Chris orders up a new Parks Department logo, and Andy embarks on a quest for personal betterment that would make Chris proud and Ron Swanson give up all his gold. Plus, some public sexiness takes place on...

This week, Saturday Night Live followed up last week's success with an equally strong episode that found Jason Segel as host-- with a little help from his Muppet friends, of course. The movie comes out on Wednesday, after all. I feel like we saw more Vanessa Bayer and Jay...
