Look out world -- Josh Gad is moving into the White House.
It's about time they brought back Men in Trees.
This weekend's Saturday Night Live was filled with the terrible sketches we've come to expect from the show. Even Weekend Update failed to get the tanning lady right by having her not be remotely dark enough -- if you're going to go for it, really go for it. So, despite an appearance by Sacha Baron Cohen (in Dictator-regalia) and Martin Scorsese, the episode was a dud. There were poor excuses to get Eli Manning in drag, be awkward and to say the word "penis" repeatedly. In fact, there were only two moments even worth remembering... and they were both pre-recorded sketches. And only one of them involved the actual host.
Theon can't cut off a head to spite his face and other notable moments from last night's Game of Thrones installment, "The Old Gods and the New."
This past week, Louis CK tweeted at Lena Dunham, "[Y]our show is really really good and funny and unique and other things. So keep going. Please." I wonder if this will make the outspoken anti-Girls critics on the Internet reevaluate their hate? Or maybe they watched last night's episode and decided to embrace this show for the well-written sitcom that it is? Time will tell!
We miss Downton Abbey, too, but if you're desperately in need of quality British television entertainment to tide you over until the Crawley clan's return in January 2013, we strongly recommend that you give Sherlock a try. A big hit in its native land when it premiered two years ago, the Steven Moffat co-created series -- which brings Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic sleuth Sherlock Holmes fully into the modern day -- had a successful run on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery franchise in late 2010. Now, it's back for a second batch of three 90-minute episodes, which kicked off last night with "A Scandal in Belgravia." Yes, we know Sunday is a busy night for television and everything, but if you don't already have Sherlock on your DVR, here are five reasons to add it right away:
TNT knows a good thing when they've already saved it.
Learning to fly... or at least coping with someone forcing you on a plane.
At the conclusion of last week's Law & Order-themed episode, the Greendale student body lost one of its own -- the enigmatic, drug-dealing, pet-lizard-owning and sideburns-rocking Alex Osbourne a.k.a. Star-Burns. Last night's outing, "Course Listing Unavailable," was an offbeat farewell to the character that followed the arc of the five stages of grief... well, maybe three out of five anyway.
