‘Community’ Season 5 Episode 6 Recap: “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking”

Community’s fifth season has, thus far, spent much of its time taking care of old business. First order of said business was jump-starting the show in light of Dan Harmon’s return as show-runner; we had to tie up the loose ends, explain the speed-bumps of the “gas leak year,” and most importantly, establish that the show could be great again. Once that was done, there was the matter of departures: first a proper send-off for the already-absent Chevy Chase, and then last week’s epic farewell to Donald Glover. Now that all of that is out of the way, this week’s episode, “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking,” merely has the job of being a good, solid episode of Community—and our first real look at what that show will be from here on out. … Read More

Let’s Cast More Joss Whedon Shakespeare Adaptations

Joss Whedon’s delightful, modernized adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing is out today, and while the writer/director certainly has plenty on his plate — another Avengers, that S.H.I.E.L.D. series, more Dr. Horrible (let’s all just will that into existence) — he adapts Shakespeare so well that there’s already talk of him returning to the Bard. “There are other things I would love to accomplish,” he told the Austin Chronicle, “but doesn’t want to do Hamlet? Hamlet and Twelfth Night are probably the two contenders.” For those of us who love both Joss and Shakespeare, the idea of continuing mash-ups is a delicious one — particularly since it’s safe to assume he’d continue casting actors familiar from the “Whedonverse.” And thus, a few suggestions for other Shakespeare plays ripe for the Whedon treatment, and who might best fill their roles. … Read More

SXSW 2013: Joss Whedon on Spinning from Marvel to Shakespeare

AUSTIN, TX: Director Joss Whedon and most of the large ensemble cast for his new film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing turned up at the SXSW Film Festival for the picture’s first screening Saturday afternoon, participating in a panel discussion and Q&A that ran a full hour and touched on everything from the film’s sexiness to drinking on set to its director’s previous, sharply different gig directing a certain superhero blockbuster. … Read More

What’s On at Flavorpill: The Links That Made the Rounds In Our Office

Today at Flavorpill, we watched a video featuring Nathan Fillion in a doctor’s outfit, some puppets, and Neil Patrick Harris’ trouser weasel (don’t worry — it’s not as dirty as it sounds). We were thrilled to hear that Katheryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty nabbed the National Board of Review’s Best Film honor. … Read More

Watch the First Clip from the Upcoming 'Firefly' Reunion Special

If you’ve been getting your hopes up about a Firefly animated series, you’re probably going to be disappointed (yes, because the world is a cruel, cruel place — just go watch Angel). But fans of Joss Whedon’s cult space western do have something concrete to look forward to: an hour-long ten-year reunion special entitled Browncoats Unite, airing November 11th on the Science Channel. Yes, it’s been ten years. In this very short first clip, Nathan Fillion breaks down the reason Captain Mal loves his shipmates so much — it’s because they’re really aspects of himself. Enter semi-ironic stoner “whoa” sound here. Watch the clip after the jump, and start getting your reunion night cosplay outfits together. Or not, if that’s your thing. … Read More

12 TV Shows We Can’t Believe Aren’t on DVD

Taking a glance at today’s new DVD releases (as we do on many a groggy Tuesday morn), we noticed the continuation of a disturbing pattern. Happily Divorced: Season One. The New Adventures of Old Christine: The Complete Fifth Season. Transformers Prime: Season One. “Fan Favorite” collections featuring the “best” of Hogan’s Heroes and Macgyver — since every season of those shows has already been released. And the question we ask (aside from “who the hell is buying this stuff”) is this: How is it that we get every single episode of Fran Drescher’s new TV Land sitcom a mere seven months after they aired, but we’re still waiting for our Wonder Years DVDs?

After the jump, we’ll take a look at a dozen great (or at least interesting) TV shows that are inexplicably unavailable on DVD, and try to figure out why. … Read More

Fan-Made Movies That Are Better Than the Originals

By now you’ve probably seen the fan-edited John Carter trailer that’s taken the Internet by storm. Most critics are calling it “better than the real trailer” and marveling at the thing as though it’s actually difficult to tell a story better than a huge Hollywood studio can. But apparently, it isn’t that hard — people on the Internet do it every day! After the jump, we’ll look at some of the best fan-made and fan-edited videos out there. If you like something we haven’t listed, be sure to mention it in the comments! … Read More

Art Nouveau-Inspired Posters of the Men of ‘Firefly’

The men of Serenity never looked better in this set of awesome and attractive Firefly art prints. If you miss the Joss Whedon show as much as we do and want to keep a little galactic mojo close by, Quantum Mechanix’s new five-poster set designed by artist Megan Lara is beautiful and should make any Browncoat happy. Mal, Wash, Jayne, Simon, and Book are all featured in the Firefly Les Hommes series, looking totally dreamy. Next up: Art Nouveau space cowboys on tees? Yes please. (Someone make that happen.) There’s also a Les Femmes poster set — all of which we’ve shared past the break. Visit Quantum Mechanix’s site for details on how to preorder.  … Read More
