Last fall we interviewed Jason Schwartman, Ted Danson, and HBO's "Bored to Death" series creator Jonathan Ames, and we're pleased that the second season of this hilarious show is moving forward. Please check out the trailer above!
We're psyched to see another episode of "Louie" on FX at 11pm tonight - we loved that Louis C.K. used Facebook to track down an ex-girlfriend in one of last week's episodes - creepy and hilarious!
Syfy's funny and original series "Warehouse 13" also starts up again tonight and it's worth checking out.
Are we so old that we're the only ones who remember "Max Headroom"? The 1980s show is finally going to have the robust DVD release it has always needed on August 10th and we can't wait! We'll provide a review here once we get our hands on it. It only had 14 episodes but they accurately predicted the future of TV show production and communications as we know it today - cyberpunks unite!
