May 20th, 2015 9:11am EDT
Community
“Do you try to evolve, or do you try to know who you are?” Season 1 ended with Jeff facing this dilemma. As the years have gone on, this issue has come to define his show as a whole. Season 6 has brought this conflict to a head. Do you try to evolve beyond paintball, or do you try to know who you are and recapture your original homage episode glory?

By beginning “Modern Espionage” with a thrilling cold opening that captured the foreboding vibe of spy cinema, the value of continuing with old tricks appeared to be quite high. With acrobatic car stunts and mysterious off-camera dialogue, Rob ...

There’s housewife drama, and then there’s Bethenny drama. Bethenny wins.

What Cartoons Would You Like To See Revived?

10 Classic Cartoons That Need To Be Revived

Some networks have gotten the hint: classic shows like ‘Dragon Ball’ and ‘The Powerpuff Girls’ have gotten the chance to live again, and even the older ‘toon, ‘Danger Mouse,’ is getting a new set of legs, too. With Netflix taking control of the television industry, there’s no reas...
