I would like to share with you now one of the most terrifying and gruesome catalog of pop-culture horror I was witness to within the first 11 years of life…no, not that issue of Fangoria my friend shared during a birthday party…no, not the robot-lady in Superman III…it’s…
This past Sunday, Hollywood lost a comedic legend: Jerry Lewis. The star of The Nutty Professor and The King Of Comedy, Lewis was a film/TV/radio/stage actor, screenwriter, director, producer—and, in his extensive work for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, a humanitarian.
But throughout the condolences and tributes that poured in over social media for Lewis, a small contingent of cult movie fans couldn’t help but wonder aloud: will this mean The Day The Clown Cried will finally be released?
But what exactly is a multicamera comedy? It sounds like it has more cameras than merely a single-camera comedy, so isn’t it better? I’m a big TV sitcom nerd, so you’re going to hear me briefly pontificate on this topic. Get ready.
I wanted to address a phenomenon I’ve noticed with myself & that perhaps some of you have experienced as well. There are some favorite TV shows that “age well” for me, and that I can pick up again at any time—and then there are others that “had their shot” but now time has passed and I can’t get into them anymore.
Case in point Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Love-love-loved this show when it was first-run, was totally obsessed with it. Bought all this BTVS merch, read the fan-fiction, kept Buffy-themed wallpaper on my computer screen, etc. Never missed an episode, went into withdrawals between seasons.
