The iconic grey suit and red bowtie have returned: Pee-wee Herman is back and heading to HBO for a special filmed presentation of his Broadway show, The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway.

Ray: We went to this conference, and the men who created the Real-D technology were there. They showed us scenes from The Departed and [had] a showing of Kung Fu Panda in Real-D that was amazing. So I called ...

'Corpsicle'

Chuck gives Oscar (Paul Reubens) a piece of her hair so he can find out the truth about her smell. Emerson tells Ned he has a daughter but later blames carbon monoxide poisoning as the culprit for his sharing mood (but we know the potato was inserted in the tailpipe after he shared that information). High as a kite from a mood enhancer, Lily tells Olive Chuck’s her daughter. Oh my! All sorts of secrets came out of hiding tonight.On the run from Ned after he told her he’s responsible for the death of her father, Chuck goes to the only other place she knows she’s welcome: Olive’s. And because it’s the last place he thinks to look, Ned scours the city before knocking on Olive’s door. But now that she and Chuck are friends, Olive’s not about to give her up. I was happy Chuck got to tell someone the real story of how she died and was resurrected by Ned, even if Olive ending up not believing her. I may have mentioned it before but I’ll mention it ag... read more

"Smell of Success"

Tonight we finally learned why Ned decided to become a pie maker and how he became so set in his ways. The smell of pies reminded 9 year-old Ned of his mother and feeling safe, loved, and warm. He knows he can’t eat the pies but he derives pleasure from making them nonetheless. Years later when Chuck buys cupcake pans and suggests offering cup-pies on the menu, we get a glimpse of how averse Ned is to change. Can you really blame him? I can’t even imagine the trauma of having a bearskin rug come alive beneath me.I really enjoyed Chuck enlisting Olive in her scheme to get the Darling Mermaid Darlings (DMD) back in the water. Hard nut Lily really likes torturing Olive and I like seeing just how far her invective will go. Olive does her best to put Phase 2 in motion but Lily passes her fleeting smile off as gas. Our mystery death of the week involves apprentice Anita Gray. She works for olfactory genius Napoleon LeNez (Chistopher Sieber), who is publishing a book on smell. Wh... read more
