Learning As She Goes Trailer: Sarah Silverman’s I Love You, America!

Sarah Silverman loves America so much that she decided the best way to understand what’s going in America on a daily basis was to get out into streets and talk with people from conceivable demographic group – and especially those whose views conflicted with her own.

Hulu has released a video that shows us (and her) how well she is/is not figuring out the complexities of America.

The show is called I Love You, America and it premieres Thursday, October 12th – only on Hulu.

Alex Karpovsky & Teddy Blanks Launch Short Film Series About Therapy, SHRINK!

One of the problems about therapy is that people can tend to go on and on and on about their therapy.

What if they could reduce all their generalities down to under two minutes? May then, we could grasp the benefits of therapy and maybe even be willing to try it ourselves.

Alex Karpovsky and Teddy Blanks have created a six-episode series of successful artists reducing their many years of therapy to under two minutes. It works beautifully.

The 2014 Emmys: Improved Presentation, Same Old Confusion!

If there’s anything more confusing than a list of Emmy® winners, I’m not sure I know what it is. Even after some horrendous snubs (not just Tatiana Maslany…), there were still a lot of worthy nominees this year. The problem is that deserved wins by the consistently excellent Breaking Bad (for example) were cheapened by repeat wins by shows that were not as good as other nominees in their class (Modern Family, for example).

For every win for something new and amazing (Fargo), there was a win that made no sense at all (Kathy Bates over Allison Tolman? WTF?). And how does Louis C.K. win for comedy writing and lose comedy series to Modern Family, Academy? You just said that Louie had the best (ie: funniest) comedy writing!

Anyway, follow the jump for a complete list of Emmy winners and, quite possibly, a wee bit of commentary.
