Monday night’s ‘Gotham,’ titled 'Arkham,' featured a villain who used some sort of telescope-type object, with a nifty extending blade, to kill people. I like to think his name is Telescope Stab Man. Telescope Stab Man is hilarious for his use of such a convoluted weapon, which, yes, is par for the course when it comes to ‘Gotham’ – a hilarious show that doesn’t realize it’s hilarious. Anyway, here are the 16 moments during this week’s ‘Gotham’ that made me literally laugh out loud.

After watching Bill Hader host ‘SNL,’ I think there’s a chance that we all undervalued him while he was actually on the show. And I write this knowing that Hader actually was highly valued, but maybe it wasn’t enough. Hader is this generation’s Phil Hartman. It really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that he makes the perfect host. And it’s evident that ‘SNL’ really hasn’t figured out quite how to replace Hader yet; he fits so effortlessly into this cast. Hader has a way of elevating everything, and that’s why last night we got one of the best ‘SNL’’s in recent memory.

We had a chance to speak to series creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino just before the panel to discuss everything from bringing Korra's journey full circle, to lingering Book 3 questions, and the franchise future.
Coinciding with New York Comic Con, Pixar is promoting its new short film, ‘Lava,’ that will play before the theatrical release of ‘Inside Out’ next June. ‘Lava,’ directed by James Ford Murphy, is the story of a lonely volcano who sings – in a style inspired by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole’s version of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ – in an attempt to find his one true love. It’s a sweet story that will garner attention as all the Pixar shorts seem to do – and can serve as a springboard for feature length animated films. How does one get an animated short approved by Pixar? Here, ‘Lava’ director James Ford Murphy explains the process, which started on a napkin.
This week, Jennifer Lawrence finally broke her silence regarding the massive hack that resulted in her nude photos (as well as those of several other female celebrities) being released onto the internet, aptly describing the incident as a "sex crime." Meanwhile, Reddit users are actually suggesting that Lawrence and other victims of the hacking attack unite to contribute to a fund to develop powerful encryption software. Why is it that, when women are put under attack, the onus is on us to clean up the mess?
