Spike Lee Inspired King of the Hill?!

King of the Hill and creator Mike Judge

This Sunday (at 7:30 pm/ET) will mark the 200th episode and 10th season finale of Fox's King of the Hill. The achievement is yet another feather in the cap of series creator Mike Judge, who turned Beavis and Butt-head into household names and directed the oft-quoted cult hit Office Space.

Battlestar Galactica "Save the...

Donald Faison, Scrubs

Battlestar Galactica "Save the attitude for someone who cares," Starbuck says to Kat — right before Kat's cannon explodes. Yeah, and save the "fracking," too, OK? I just want to say once again that I hate the whole "frack" thing. It's a distracting holdover from the original show, and it's not even a necessary one, no matter how many other fans insist on using it. There. Rant over. Just that rant, I mean. You guys know I love this show, and this was yet another great episode: Roslin's memories of Baltar making out with Number Six, the whole Baltar-Number Six drama in the present, Sharon's baby being a hair away from being aborted and then Baltar's discovery that its blood could be used to cure Roslin's cancer, etc. But the best thing about Galactica is that it's always avoided the trap other sci-fi shows fall into: that of so much going on that there's no room for character developmen read more

Monk Is it lame of me to continue...

MonkIs it lame of me to continue mourning the loss of Bitty Schram, aka Monk's original sidekick, Sharona? Traylor Howard as Natalie just doesn't do it for me (honestly, few things pronounced "trailer" thrill me.) The tears she wept when she found out Monk had disappeared were so annoying. If he had gone missing on Sharona's watch, she wouldn't have called Stottlemeyer weeping. She would have gone out and found Monk herself! Also, I'm a little over the six-fingered man who supposedly killed our OCD hero's wife. I think creator Andy Breckman watched The Princess Bride one too many times (although it would be cool if the murderer ended up being played by Christopher Guest in the finale). OK, let me stop whining and talk about wh read more

Would Eugene Levy Like Some More Pie?

Eugene Levy

Eugene Levy: action hero? Uh, not quite. Although the SCTV vet — best known for the American Pie movies as well as being one of Christopher Guest's go-to guys — does a little running and a bit of jumping in the new action-comedy The Man, he has since decided to leave such heroics to pros such as costar Samuel L. Jackson.

"I've never been a physical kind of comedian," Levy acknowledges. "All of the physical stuff [in The Man] I tried to make look fairly credible, and give it a bit of a comic spin — if you're running down the alley and getting shot in the ass, you don't want to make it too painful for the a read more
