Watch the ‘Broad City’ women celebrate 420 with a truly magical smoke sesh

TwitterFacebook

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. 🎶 

And don’t Broad City characters Abbi and Ilana know it. The known weed fiends and best friends forever eased fan’s between-season withdrawals on Thursday. The show’s IRL creators and stars, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, released a special “Hack into Broad City” Facebook video to mark stoners’ favourite date.

And things got pretty magical. Ilana replaced her diffuser’s essential oils with vape oil and the pair pretend to vape and pass, via Skype, as is their beloved tradition.

Except this time, it actually works! Either that, or they’re so high, they hallucinated a second pipe into existence. Read more…

Jay Pharoah opens up about his ‘SNL’ exit: ‘You go where you’re appreciated’

TwitterFacebook

Former Saturday Night Live star Jay Pharoah hasn’t said much about his unexpected exit from the show since he and Taran Killam were released from their contracts last August … until now. 

The comedian opened up about being dropped from the NBC hit during an interview with Hot 97.

“You go where you’re appreciated,” Pharoah explained. “If you have multiple people on the cast saying things like ‘You’re so talented, and you’re able, and they don’t use you and it’s unfair and it’s making us feel bad because they don’t use you and you’re a talent …’”

Pharoah also expressed frustration with the direction of the show, noting, “They put people into boxes, and whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do.”  Read more…

Louis C.K.’s ‘SNL’ monologue rips white privilege and racist chickens

TwitterFacebook

“Why did the chicken cross the road?”

Obviously, Louis C.K. didn’t deliver the expected punchline when he kicked off his April 8 Saturday Night Live monologue with the lamest joke in human history. Instead, he riffed on racist chickens, judgmental horses, and freaked-out giraffes (sadly, no April reference).

The 10-minute mini-set ends with a story about a recent hotel stay, an encounter with rude housekeeping staff, and an acknowledgment of white privilege. It’s a real journey, and peak Louis. Read more…

What happened to our ‘Grimm’ favorites after the series finale?

TwitterFacebook

Spoiler warning: This interview contains plot details for the series finale of Grimm.

After six seasons and 123 episodes, Grimm came to a close Friday night. As a fan throughout the show’s run, I was sad to see it go, especially since so many other genre shows are wrapping up this season (The Vampire Diaries, Bates Motel, Teen Wolf). But Grimm is going out at the top of its game. The last two seasons have been stellar, with a good mix of standalone stories and mythology episodes. 

For the uninitiated, Grimm follows Nick Burkhardt, a Portland homicide detective. He discovers he is a Grimm, one of a long line of hunters who fights supernatural creatures, known as Wesen, that are eerily reminiscent of fairy tale creatures. But let’s be honest: if you’re reading this, you’re familiar with the show. So let’s talk about that series finale.  Read more…

Yes, the ‘Game of Thrones’ showrunners hated HBO’s stupid melting ice stunt as much as you did

TwitterFacebook

If you care about that which is best in life, or if you’re (somehow) out of TV to catch up on or binge, then you’re probably anxiously anticipating the new season of Game of Thrones like the rest of us. 

But now one of the show’s lead actors, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (a.k.a. Jaime Lannister) revealed that the people behind the show’s ice melting debacle considered the Season 7 date reveal a cringeworthy moment in TV history (of course, the internet agreed).

“I spoke to [showrunners] Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff] about that and they were like, ‘Oh god… That’s embarrassing,'” Coster-Waldau told The Daily BeastRead more…

Hugh Grant dances to Drake in ‘Love Actually’ reunion

TwitterFacebook

Love it or loathe it, Love Actually is the film that refuses to die. 

For whatever reason it’s burrowed into our collective consciousness on both sides of the Atlantic, and when news of a 10-minute sequel was announced recently the internet quietly melted down with anticipation.

On Friday, after hours of teasing during the BBC’s annual Red Nose Day event, the short clip finally aired. Hugh Grant, Keira Knightly, Colin Firth and the most of the rest returned for the skit, which Richard Curtis said was to check in and “see what everyone is now up to.” Read more…

This widly incorrect guess on ‘Wheel of Fortune’ will leave you screaming

TwitterFacebook

This guy needs a beer, or at least a brief explainer of 20th century American plays.

A contestant on “America’s #1 game show!” Wheel of Fortune blew what was quite possibly one of the easiest puzzles in game show history on Tuesday night. 

All he had to do was guess the remaining letter in this title to win the round: “A STREETCAR NA_ED DESIRE.” 

You don’t have to be freakin’ Tennessee Williams to know the answer, and yet this contestant gave the letter “K.” Yes, K

Aren’t those moans from the crowd just painful? Naturally, Twitter was ablaze with people wondering just how? How could this happen? Read more…
