Although a lot has changed in the fictional TV years since we last saw the cast of ‘Parks and Recreation,’ some things never change, like Leslie’s unflappable determination, and Ron’s stubborn attitude. These two butting heads over their ideals is nothing new, but there’s something kind of unsettling about the cavalier and stoic way with which Ron approaches his business—he’s always been a libertarian with anti-government and pro-capitalist views, but who could imagine a Ron who makes deals with a business like Gryzzl?
It feels like forever since ‘The Flash’ last aired an original episode, so it’s great to finally have this entertaining show back on the air. It’s also a month later in the fictional world of the show when things start back up tonight in “Revenge of the Rogues,” and it seems as if Barry Allen and company are still nursing their wounds from the events in “The Man In The Yellow Suit.” But while plenty of people are hurting in Central City, ‘The Flash’ shows no signs of losing its light touch in the all-too-often dark world of Hollywood comic book adaptations.

FX’s ‘The Strain’ first played things close to the chest with some clever viral teasers, but the second season of Guillermo del Toro’s vampire horror-thriller will be all-out war. Watch New York burn as millions of Strigoi overwhelm the living in our first look at ‘The Strain’ season 2!
‘SNL’ took perfect potshots at Justin Bieber over the weekend with Kate McKinnon’s latest spot-on impression, and while the world at large isn’t lacking for reasons to roast the Biebs, Comedy Central will make it a global pastime. Bieber has officially been chosen as the subject of Comedy Central’s next roast, and half of Hollywood is already lining up.
J. K. Simmons has been giving us ‘Whiplash’ for decades now with head-turning performances in everything from ‘Spider-Man’ to ‘The Legend of Korra,’ but with the ‘Kong: Skull Island’ star finally nominated for an Oscar, that most hallowed of New York institutions will give Simmons his due. J.K. will host the final January ‘SNL’ installment of 2015, no “jk” about it.
