Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then says to you, "Do you want to pick door No. 2?" Is it to your advantage to switch your choice?

It’s a head-scratching phenomenon: Why, in an age when shows can be watched anytime, do the cable and broadcast networks continue to put much of their best programming in the same place? There are more popular shows on a single night than any viewer might watch in seven days, and more than the most shrewdly programmed DVR could record. (And that’s assuming an N.F.L. game doesn’t run into overtime and wreck your precisely ordered schedule.) (nyt)

despite getting amy poehler on board to produce it i have my doubts about the probability for success for broad city. still, i am glad to see comedy central do more sitcoms, or comedy in general. theyve been phoning it in for a long time outside of the south park/dailyshow/colbert vortex. fx and ifc have produced more interesting comedy content than they have over the last 5 to 10 years. now they can at least say they have some good sketch with key & peele and to a lesser extent kroll and amy schumer. and one bright spot in sitcoms with workaholics. but lets not mention tosh. im sure it makes money but....

Vanillan is the vilan.

Rick And Morty merges high-concept science fiction storytelling with dark humor in a way that finds the best in both; it’s a little like Futurama when that show was at its peak, only so far, at least, R&M doesn’t appear to have a lot of interest in sentiment. It’s also a bit darker, and far more relentlessly inventive with its plotting.


"All is Lost was shot on three 1978 Cal 39 sailboats purchased from their owners in Southern California. These three boats generously gave themselves up for art: Tahoe, Tenacious, and Orion. They took their final sails in the Pacific Ocean and performed beautifully in the film as Our Mans's boat, the Virginia Jean. Rest in peace."
