Has ‘Homeland’ jumped the shark this season? We don’t think so, but we’re open to your opinions…

Hank and Marie react to Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance (idea credit).

That’s it. That’s as good as it’s all going to get.

Perfection.

There was a lot on TV last night! Choose your recap wisely!

So what’s my problem with a smart drama about women from varied backgrounds? The answer is easy: I’m simply not entertained by shows that feature large numbers of black people exiting, entering, or already in prison.

The concept is simple, nonsensical, and utterly genius. “No food. No water. No clothes,” a booming narrator warns during the opening credits. “Can a man and woman survive alone in the wilderness naked and afraid?” It’s Man vs. Wild, but there’s a man and a woman. And they are, for no reason and every reason, buck naked. Buck naked in the jungles of Costa Rica. Bare-ass in the Tanzanian Serengeti. The goal—and it’s just that, a goal, as there is no prize for completing the mission—is to survive 21 days in the wilderness together. Naked.
We did it. We found the craziest show on TV

From Laughing Squid:

Love these.

I will still be part of the ‘Today’ show family but I’m gonna have a new timeline, a new role. This is not as I expected to ever leave this couch after 15 years but I am so grateful. Especially to all of you who watch because Matt and I and everyone who sits on this couch, we often call ourselves a family but you are the real ‘Today’ show family.
You are why I have ventured into dangerous places and interviewed dictators and jumped off of planes and off of bridges and climbed mountains and landed in the South Pole and convince the Dalai Lama to come live in our studio. I have loved you and I have wanted to give you the world, and I still do.

Reddit user Britta-Bot has set to work recreating “Journey to the Center of Hawkthorne”, the 8-bit title featured on NBC sitcom Community’s season finale. While the title is in it’s early stages, featuring little more than a handful of maps and characters seen on the show, Britta-Bot plans to introduce health and inventory systems, new maps, and more in future releases. Community fans, this is definitely something worth checking in on from time to time. (thanks to LaughterKey for the tip) source
