TV News and Dolly Parton Playing a Tiny Saxophone

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Tue, Jul 1, 2014 at 9:49 AM

I'm sure you heard about Yahoo TV picking up Community for its dreamed about sixth season... but this move also paves the way for the also-dreamed about movie—and Sony exec Zach Van Amburg appears to be INTO IT.

There’s no way we’re not making the movie now! I think once we make the movie, let’s look up and decide how much more Community the world wants. We promised six seasons and a movie, how much more do you want?! [Laughs.] … I’d be lying if I told you that we have not had some very early and preliminary conversations that are very exciting about what a potential movie could be and who might direct it. It’s early but it’s completely in our thought process.

Better Call Saul—the Breaking Bad spinoff starring Bob Odenkirk—will be both a prequel AND a sequel, according to the New York Post:

Executive producer Peter Gould says that the show will feature scenes that move back and forth over several decades, including the era where Walter White cooked and sold crystal meth.

“One of the great things about having a time line which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before ‘Breaking Bad,’ during ‘Breaking Bad,’ and after ‘Breaking Bad'. That gives us the ability to bring back characters that were killed on ‘Breaking Bad,’ ” he says.

Here's a reviewer who thinks Orange is the New Black focuses too much on WOMEN. (Let the guillotine fall!)

Judge Judy finally takes on a case that involves Grindr—and while justice is served, she's still kind of confused by the whole thing.

And finally, here's Dolly Parton playing the Benny Hill theme song on a tiny saxophone, which I suppose doesn't have anything to do with TV—but it's still a wondrous thing to behold.
