Whether you needed a good laugh, a good cry, a good scare or a good reminder that your relationships will probably never be as hectic as Hannah and Adam’s, then 2014 TV was here to deliver it for you. Here are Nick’s choices for the best shows of 2014.
This month, the awesome CinemaBlend staff is putting together the lists of the shows we feel have really stood out from the pack in 2014. Everyone’s list is different, so if you don’t see you favorites here, be sure to check back in and take a look at our other TV writer and editor best of list that will be hitting the homepage over the next few weeks.
Luckily, Cinema Blend has combed through last year’s premieres. We’ve watched and rewatched some of our favorite episodes, and we’ve cultivated a list of the Season 2 shows we feel pretty confident about. If you’ve been wondering what the various networks have to offer this is the best of the best, at least when it comes to second year shows. Pick ‘em up. It’s not too late to get on board and you haven’t missed too much with each of these shows.
Following up on the lengthy list of Emmy nominations that was announced today, we've picked over the choices the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences made with regards to the main categories, and we found quite a few reasons to applaud the nominees, and just as many reasons to to wave our fists and complain over the talented actors and outstanding TV shows that didn't make the cut this year.
If you’ve already seen this summer’s best comedies or simply want to skip a trip to the theater, one of the funniest ‘films’ this year is available to binge-watch on television HBOGo. So Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley may not technically be a movie but its total runtime, with only eight episodes in the first season, is less than some of cinema’s longer efforts. And instead of one intermission, it has seven. Not that you’ll want to take them.
Fans of the mastermind comedian behind Idiocracy and Office Space can breathe a sigh of relief, however. On Monday, HBO announced that Silicon Valley will be getting a much-desired Season 2. Additionally, Veep will return for a fourth season.
Just two episodes in, Mike Judge’s tech-savvy sitcom Silicon Valley is already one of the funniest shows on TV, with a pitch-perfect cast delivering wit, bro humor and satire in a single, easy-to-operate unit. A lot of this comedic magic happens inside the “incubator,” where T.J. Miller’s Erlich Bachmann houses fellow coders and programmers for a percentage of their development profits...
Though many may be talking about the Season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones, let's not forget that HBO also debuted Mike Judge's new live-action comedy Silicon Valley last night. The half-hour comedy has since been put online and you can enjoy it in all its hilarity and entirety.
Between Beavis & Butthead and King of the Hill, Judge was a TV presence for almost two decades straight, with the occasional underrated feature to tide over live-action fans. With Silicon Valley, he brings together his two mediums into one tightly wound and always sharp satire skewering the software start-up world that he briefly worked in before making teenagers hit frogs with baseball bats.
While most of the country is rabidly counting down the seconds to Sunday’s Season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones, there are some of us who are swiveling around in our office chairs silently waiting for Silicon Valley, the first live-action TV show from Beavis & Butthead and King of the Hill creator Mike Judge.
This week, the network finally released the trailer for Silicon Valley, and we finally have gotten a better look at the new comedy starring T.J. Miller, Thomas Middleditch, Martin Starr, Josh Brener and more.
At last, Game of Thrones fans now have an official return date to set on their calendars or apps or whatever the kids are using these days to mark dates. HBO announced today that Season 4 of the fantasy drama will debut Sunday, April 6. Winter is coming about a week later than it did for Season 3, but not such a huge delay that we need to complain, right? HBO also announced premiere dates for Veep, Vice and the debut of their new series Silicon Valley.
Lest you forget, HBO has the epic television game on lock. Between looking back at the year that was in 2013 and anticipating what’s to come going forward, the it’s-not-TV network managed to sneak a few surprises and teasers into their year-ending promo video. Turns out there’s plenty to be excited about that’s coming up in 2014, including a first look at season four of Game of Thrones, and new series The Leftovers, True Detective, Looking, Silicon Valley, and even John Oliver’s new one, too.
Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley pilot has signed two actors to play very different roles. Glory Daze’s Josh Brener and The Office’s Lindsey Broad have joined the pilot in the single camera comedy that is set to be executive produced by Scott Rudin, John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, and Judge himself.
Since King of the Hill wrapped up on Fox, Mike Judge has moved on to a comeback for MTV's Beavis & Butt-Head, the animated series that helped put the writer on the map back in the 90's. Next up, he's back to dabbling in live-action scripted comedy as he's teaming up with King of the Hill executive producers John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky for a comedy for HBO. Scott Rudin is also on board to executive produce.
