Top 5 TV Shows Of 2013: Jesse's List
2013 has been a great year for television, so narrowing down our list of favorites was no easy task. As TV Blend has numerous writers with varying tastes in TV shows, we decided to go solo this year in sharing our Top 5 lists of the best series of 2013. This is Jesse's list, which begins with...
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 6, Episodes 8 & 9 - Fluoride & The Cones Of Dunshire
Another double dose of Parks & Rec this week shows off its strengths and weaknesses as it evolves with its changing cast.
Parks And Recreation Bumped Off The Schedule By The Voice And SNL Special For Next Three Weeks
I decided this season that I wasn't going to drive myself crazy trying to watch The X-Factor and The Voice and try to keep up with my favorite scripted series at the same time. It's too hard to keep up with everything and frankly, I'm kind of burned out on singing competitions. So, it's back to just one singing competition a year for me. See you in January, American Idol.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 6, Episode 4 - Gin It Up!
Parks and Rec keeps getting back in its stride with a great episode for Mr. Swanson and the fantastic return of Councilman Jamm.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 6, Episode 3 - Doppelgangers
Parks & Rec go a bit high concept with “Doppelgangers” by bringing in everyone’s counterpart from Eagleton into the department and the results work to varying success.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 6, Episode 2 - The Pawnee-Eagleton Tip Off Classic
Parks & Rec follows up its fantastic one hour premiere with one of the worst episodes in the show's history. I know, I know, that is very dramatic, but I honestly barely cracked a smile and felt the strain of the writing at every turn. The only potentially good thing to come out of the episode is the merging of Pawnee and Eagleton, but the rivalry between the two cities was put to the max this week and was unable to keep the gag going strong through the first commercial break.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 6 Premiere - London
Parks & Recreation is back for its 6th season and it is a super sized and hilarious trip that takes us from Pawnee to London and beyond. As the start of most any sitcom season goes, this premiere episode is setting the board for the season to come, but the breathing room of a full hour really allows the episode to slowly dole plot out while surrounding it with tons of fantastic character moments.
Parks And Recreation Season 6: A Look Back And A Look Ahead
This week Parks and Recreation is back but not in Pawnee, the NBC sitcom is starting Season 6 across the pond for a special one-hour premiere in “London.” And before the ‘business trip’ begins tomorrow night, now is a good time to refresh our memories about where the series left audiences at the end of last year as well as make a few projections for where the comedy might be headed this season.
2013 Fall TV Premiere Schedule: Dates For New And Returning Shows
September is upon us, and with it comes the return of our favorite TV shows, as well as the premieres of many of the new series on deck to debut on network and cable TV. From the early starters, including Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy and The Legend of Korra, to the October arrivals, including Grimm, American Horror Story: Coven and The Walking Dead and everything in between, we have plenty to look forward to this fall!
Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany To Guest Star On Parks And Recreation
Tatiana Maslany may have multiple characters in her BBC America series Orphan Black, but she'll have just one in Parks and Recreation. We're assuming, anyway. Details on Maslany's character are pretty slim right now, but we do know that she's set to play the love interest to one of Pawnee's best dressed citizens.
Rob Lowe And Rashida Jones Are Leaving Parks And Recreation
Season 6 will be a milestone season for Parks and Recreation as the series approaches its 100th episode. It also appears to be the final season for stars Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones, who are reportedly set to exit the series on or at some point after the thirteenth episode of the season. Rashida Jones has been with the show since the very beginning, while Lowe boarded the NBC comedy during Season 2, so their exits will most certainly be a huge event for the series.
Henry Winkler To Guest Star In Parks And Recreation Season 6
Parks and Recreation has a tendency to enlist some pretty fantastic guest stars, and this latest bit of casting news is no exception there. The Fonz will be headed to Pawnee next season as Happy Days star Henry Winkler has signed on to play Jean-Ralphio's father in the NBC comedy series. Some may be better familiar with Winkler for his roles as Barry Zuckerkorn in Arrested Development and Sy Mittleman in Childrens Hospital.
Kristen Bell Is Headed To Pawnee For A Guest Spot In Parks And Recreation Season 6
Earlier this year, Parks & Recreation's Mike Schur admitted that he and his writing staff come up with an end to the show "every three months" due to NBC's reluctance to renew the series unless it is at the zero hour. Well, Season 6 is set to premiere on September 26th (with an hour long episode) and is wasting no time in bringing in some recognizable guest stars to help out the season, including House of Lies' and Veronica Mars actress Kristen Bell.
NBC Fall 2013 Premiere Dates Set
Earlier this week, CBS showed us their Fall 2013 TV premiere schedule. Today, NBC has followed suit, laying out the premiere dates for their new and returning series this fall, including the return of The Voice, Grimm and Revolution, as well as new series Dracula, The Michael J. Fox Show, The Blacklist and Sean Saves the World
The Americans, New Girl And More Headline Critics' Choice Television Award Nominations
The awards ceremony, hosted by Parks and Recreation’s Retta, will be held on June 1, though it wasn’t stated if or where the ceremony would air. You can see a full list of the nominees below. Beyond my ever-present happiness for a Louie nod, I’m really glad Kevin Spacey’s Netflix turn on House of Cards got its due credit, as well as Tatiana Maslany, who has been outstanding in her multiple role duties on BBC America’s Orphan Black. Who are some of your favorites?
