Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been, by far, my favorite new show this Fall. Andy Samberg is phenomenal as main character and detective Jake Peralta (hilarious, akin to his lead in my favorite funny movie: Hot Rod) and the supporting cast around him are all unique and comedic in their own way.
So you can imagine my pleasant surprise that within minutes of last night's all-new episode, Kid Cudi was the guest star! The premise: Detective Peralta arrests a newly released from prison Cudi (not playing himself, obviously) after a robbery happens just like his M.O.. Peralta has 48 hours to find the evidence to keep Peralta in custody and the ensuing events are wildly entertaining.
Both clips above and below feature Cudi with Samberg bringing the laughs. My only wish was for Cudi to taunt him even more, ha!
Exciting news for Donald Glover/Childish Gambino fans that will offset any disappointment that Glover will be leaving Community after the fifth episode this upcoming season (sorry for breaking your heart if this is the first you're hearing of that news.)
Via Deadline, Donald Glover has signed a deal to write, produce, and star in 'Atlanta' — a music-themed half-hour comedy for FX that has the Atlanta music scene as its backdrop. Intrigued? Thought so. This sounds beyond promising for a fan of either Glover the comedian or Gambino the rapper (or both of course).
Watch the FULL Season 8 Premiere of Dexter via Showtime above!
Whoo, what a nice Sunday night of TV. The BET Awards were the appetizer for me as the last season of one of my favorite shows, Dexter, premiered tonight. Showtime put up the first episode — "A Beautiful Day" — in full on YouTube so in case you missed an, as expected, thrilling season premiere — press play above and enjoy!
I won't give anything away, but I will say I like where this is going...
Oh! I should caution for the Monday morning readers that the episode is NSFW. But if you're looking to pull off watching a full hour-long episode of Dexter at work then you already figured/clearly don't care about work. Props.
in video yearbook style (yes, this is actually Creed's new single)
Last night, one of the most defining comedies of our generation, The Office, shut its doors for the last time. Over nine (!) years, the Thursday night NBC staple created a new style of comedy (in the "mockumentary" form) and made stars and/or career-defining roles for its widely eccentric and talented cast. I loved the show for its dry and awkward humor, every single character flowing in a working ensemble, and the way it presented not only the everyday office happenings, but also when to be funny and when to be emotional. I felt like I cared about the characters as the series progressed and that's a sign of a great show. I remember watching the show's very first episode back in 2004 with Who Dough in fact, and we were immediately sold on the first of many Jim/Dwight office pranks. Now in our own office, I can't help but think of the occasional Office parallel if one of our many eccentric and talented "characters" does something hilarious.
Since this show had an impact on me and many others, I felt inspired today to give The Office some well-deserved dap with this post to break up the daily dose of hip hop in the Blog section. And hey, there's even some music as Creed's fitting "All Of The Faces" was performed in the episode and can be heard above. Also enjoy some of the best moments of last night's series finale in GIFs and MEMEs below (SPOILERS!) and watch the full, final episodehere.
I feel like I've had the end of September in the back of my mind now all summer. Why? Because Dexter: Season 7 began tonight! The cliffhanger at the end of last season was something Dexter fans were waiting to see play out and we had to wait a good 8 months to see what happened next. I successfully avoided any sort of trailer or preview to not ruin the first few moments of this season. Turns out that was the right move. *pats self on back*
Masterful first episode if I say so myself. The ending was superb and there are a lot of seeds planted for the rest of this season. I think we're in quite the ride this season, Dexter fans.
What did you think of the first episode? Watch it above in case you missed it!
The end of an era is upon us, as for nearly a decade, a Thursday night comedy staple in The Office will be closing its doors after the end of Season 9 that will be starting September 20th. This is the right time (well, many Office fans may argue that two seasons ago was the right time), but it's great that the show will know this is the last season and can wrap up the series on its own terms. For me personally, I haven't missed an episode. In fact, I still remember the day three of my high school buddies watched the premiere episode when it originally aired and laughed hysterically at Jim putting Dwight's stapler in Jello. We've been hooked since then so it'll at the very least be a bittersweet ending come next spring. I predict a Michael Scott comeback at some point this season. Kind of has to happen, right? Anyway, for your enjoyment, enjoy some Michael Scott moments below.
