FREEDOM! SWEET FREEDOM!
Another week is over, and that means another “In Case You Missed It.” Here are the stories from this week you might have missed…
–Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is closing on Broadway this January. I think most people forgot it was a thing, honestly. Life goes on.
-The new Hungry Games (are you sure that’s not what it’s called?) movie is out! And it made LOTS of money last night! Nina will have a review up in the next few days.
-Bill Cosby and Sarah Silverman have stand-up specials this weekend on Comedy Central and HBO, respectively. They’re both funny people, despite what some people might say, cough cough.
-Fox has put two of its comedies on hiatus; The Mindy Project (The show people want to love, but can’t) and Dads (The show people want to hate, and they succeed at it very much so). What this means for each show’s future? That’s for Fox to decide. As long as Brooklyn Nine-Nine is safe, that’s all I care about.
-Jimmy Fallon, John Goodman, and Paul Rudd are each hosting SNL in December. That makes life so much better, don’t you think?
-All the Whos down in Whoville like the Doctor quite a bit.
So the Special this weekend hopefully isn’t a piece of shit.
–The Chris Gethard Show, a very, very, very odd public access comedy show with a very, very, very loyal fan base, is filming a pilot for Comedy Central in January. Look out for a column in the next few weeks about my thoughts on the show.
-Did you know that they made a companion short film to Gravity? You probably shouldn’t watch it if you haven’t seen Gravity yet, but I can tell you that it’s something you don’t want to miss. It’s lovely.
-Monty Python is reuniting for a single reunion show in England. And what a very, very lucky audience they will be. Bravo! Huzzah! British Things!
