Let’s Get The Life and Times of Tim Back on Television

It’s almost hard to believe it’s been five years since The Life and Times of Tim aired on HBO. I remember when the show was canceled and people online were clamoring to try and raise money to get it back. At that time crowdfunding wasn’t nearly as popular as it is now. But my theory is that if Rufio can get his own short movie, then why can’t Steve Dildarian get Life and Times of Tim back on the air? The Life & Times of Tim was an HBO comedy animated television series, which premiered on September 28, 2008. The

Some are good, some are bad, but the power lies with all of us to determine which are worthy of a full season order. Read our reviews below to get a little insight into each offering, and watch the episodes for yourself right here.

The Legend of Master Legend

John Hawkes can’t catch a break. When he nabbed the lead in Charlie Kaufman’s FX pilot — Charlie Kaufman — it didn’t get picked up. He landed an Oscar nomination for “The Sessions,” but his follow-ups have meant diddly-squat comparatively. Sure, he stole a few scenes in “Lincoln” and got to take part in Amy Schumer’s amazing sketch,

The Magic School Bus Is Coming Back!

  Well, we can all thank Netflix aka The Pet Sematary again. Ms. Frizzle and the gang will make a return to television thanks to the streaming giant. The Magic Schoolbus 360 will deliver 26 half hour CGI episodes, which will air in the Fall of 201. And, there are celebrity cameos to look forward to. Don't worry, some original cast members signed on to return as well. It's hard to believe the original television show only aired for four seasons, back in 1994. 

  Can you stand the wait? Well, let's hope the show has more moments like the clip below... And, it could be pretty educational too. The reboot will be headed by 9 Story Media Group, Scholastic, and Netflix jointly. Someone get them to bring back The Life and Times of Tim (search YouTube).

Interview: Nick Kroll Starts it Up in ‘Adult Beginners’

Chicago – Finding the adult button and hitting “on” is becoming more of a challenge as the tech generation morphs into their thirtysomething era. Comedian Nick Kroll (“Kroll Show,” “The League”) ponders this situation in the new film “Adult Beginners,” a primer on growing up and moving on.

Kroll portrays Jake, a entrepreneur whose new tech gadget goes bust. Left with no life and no income, he moves back in with his sister (Rose Byrne) and brother-in-law (Bobby Cannavale). There is a twist – Jake’s nephew Teddy needs a daytime caregiver, and Nick is now available. As he takes on his new duties, he begins to understand that life has different angles, especially when it comes to raising children.

Blessed with good looks, a winning smile, hippie parents, and a sunny California upbringing, life has been relatively easy for Logan Wood so far. After nearly four decades of coasting along through countless women and random jobs, he now teaches yoga to the hot moms, trophy wives and aspiring celebrities of Santa Monica and Venice Beach.

Oscars: Could Critical Favorites 'Act Of Killing' & 'Stories We Tell' Miss Out On Documentary Nominations?

Over the past weeks and months, we've used this space to take a close look at almost every Oscar category (bar the shorts: we'll focus on those once the nominations are out and we've seen the films), and making our rolling predictions in the process. Just in time for Christmas, we've reached the end, with just one category left: Documentary. We made our picks of the best documentaries of 2013 last week, and there's a fair amount of crossover with the 15-strong shortlist announced by the Academy a few weeks ago. We included "The Act of Killing," "Blackfish," "Cutie and the Boxer," "God Loves Uganda," "Stories We Tell" and "20 Feet From Stardom," all put forward by the Oscar nominating committee, who also picked "The Armstrong Lie," "The Crash Reel," "Dirty Wars," "First Cousin Once Removed," "Life According To Sam," "Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer," "The Square," "Tim's Vermeer" and "Which Way

Famed War Journalist Sebastian Junger on Slain Friend Tim Hetherington: 'When He Died, I Left War'
Sebastian Junger earned an Oscar nomination in 2010 for the first film he ever directed, "Restrepo," a documentary about American soldiers at war in Afghanistan. Little more than a year later, Junger would unwittingly begin work on a second documentary -- the tale of his "Restrepo" co-director, Tim Hetherington. Junger had planned on going to Libya with Hetherington but was unable to for personal reasons.
