You know, nerd culture is totally mainstream now, so when you use the term "nerd" derogatorily, you're the one out of the Zeitgeist.
Looks like Law & Order: Criminal Intent has officially come to an end.
Happy Star Wars Day everyone, may the fourth be with you! It's really too sad that not every holiday could be based around a terrible pun.
It's been almost three years, but we still can't stop thinking about Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Joss Whedon's groundbreaking musical supervillain web series. Granted, that may be partially because Whedon's follow-up, Dollhouse, failed to set the world on fire, but Horrible was still unlike anything we'd seen before, and had great performances from Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion in the lead roles. A book about the show, complete with scripts and sheet music, hit stores today, and we snagged ourselves a copy, only to find a plethora of factoids that delighted our Horribleness-craving eyes. They're not earth-shakers, like that the series was filmed in Esperanto and dubbed into English or anything, but they're fun and cute, just like the show itself. Read on, for seven of the most Hammertastic.
On this season of So You Think You Can Dance, a famous face has graced the judging panel for every live show. Overall, we were impressed by the quality of these mostly articulate celebs who seemed to be genuine fans of the franchise and who were able to actually spout opinions instead of just clap like seals. So we've ranked the special guests (though not the choreographers who were plucked to be on the panel, because we'd never be able to decide between Lil 'C and Travis Wall) to determine who was the best this summer.
Exciting Office news came down the pike last week, when it was announced that Will Ferrell will guest star on the show towards the end of this season, to aid with Michael Scott's exit in some yet-to-be-revealed way. Not being satisfied with the enormity of that news and taking a cue from NBC's press release, some people started trumping it up as an Anchorman reunion. Which is a little silly considering that just about any two male comedic actors doing anything together would probably constitute an Anchorman reunion, and that Steve Carell had a pretty small role -- albeit a memorable and awesome one -- in Anchorman. Which got us thinking about all the stuntcasting possibilities that could spawn even less warranted epic reunion claims.
Another slow television news day, but at least we have a cameo by everyone's favorite eyeliner-wearing '90s gay best friend (Wilson Cruz) on Grey's Anatomy to look forward to, plus a vampire gathering!
Out with the old, in with the new.
Jennifer Aniston's descending upon yet another perfectly good show, and Sookeh and Bee-ehl got married in the real life.
The Creative Arts Emmys were held this past Saturday, and though most of the categories are for essential yet unglamorous jobs we don't care to hear about, they are increasingly cramming more and more actually important (to us) categories into the oft-overlooked Schmemmys. By way of PSA, here are the night's awards and winners you probably do care about that you shouldn't be looking for in the real Emmys broadcast this Sunday.
