HBO proved a bit cagey in confirming that 'True Detective' had any involvement from Jessica Chastain, but another critically-acclaimed HBO series isn't hesitating to scoop up a fan-favorite actress. Fresh off the 'Community' cancellation, 'Girls' season 4 has added Gillian Jacobs to Britta Lena Dunham's life in a mysterious recurring role.
The 39th season of 'Saturday Night Live' is over. From the beginning, it was a strange season -- gone were so many of the show's powerful voices: Hader, Samberg, Wiig, Sudeikis, Armisen -- yet this allowed new voices to be heard. And that's the thing about being new on 'SNL': not everything is going to hit. But, in compiling this list of the ten best sketches from the 2013-2014 season, there were some tough choices to be made (sorry, 'Bugs'). And, sadly, for inclusion, the sketch had to have actually appeared on the live show (sorry, 'Wing').
And, yes, this list is heavy with prerecorded material as opposed to live performances. (Perhaps it's not completely fair to compare, but, this is a testament of just how strong the prerecorded sketches are in a post-'Digital Short' world.) And it's also notable that none of the best sketches were recurring sketches (though, I could see at least one of these coming back next season). So, behold: The ten best sketches from this past season of 'Saturday Night Live.'
Last night's 'Girls' season 3 finale "Two Plane Rides" proved far less polarizing than its predecessors, cementing the third year of HBO's Lena Dunham dramedy on a much more even keel overall. Now, as planning begins for an already-ordered fourth season of 'Girls,' executive producer Judd Apatow reveals that the episode order has been cut, while showrunner Jenni Konner has her own insights into the fourth season.
Welcome back to another edition of 'Girls' Talk, in which we at ScreenCrush are joined by a critic each week to discuss the latest episode.

Tonight brings the season 3 finale of 'Girls,' in which Hannah receives some exciting news that may change the course of her relationship. Meanwhile, Marnie comes to clean to Shoshanna, who is dealing with the repercussions of her great life experiment, and Jessa discovers the real reason why Beadie hired her.
Welcome to another edition of 'Girls' Talk, where we here at ScreenCrush are joined by critics each week to discuss the latest episode. This week, Hannah has Elijah accompany her to complete an assignment, Marnie makes her singing debut (officially), and Jessa decides to quit drugs and get a job (again).
On tonight's all-new episode of 'Girls,' Elijah is here to fill the Adam-shaped hole in Hannah's heart! Hannah has Elijah help her complete an assignment, and later, the two are joined by Shoshanna to attend a musical performance by none other than -- you guessed it -- Marnie. Meanwhile, Jessa shakes off her drug habit (again) and lands a new job (again).
On tonight's all-new episode of 'Girls,' Hannah tries to spice up her sex life with Adam when she feels as though the two have grown a little too comfortable together, and the end result is a one-two punch of hilarity and heartbreak. Meanwhile, Shoshanna is fed up with Jessa and Jasper's shenanigans and decides to do a little meddling, while Marnie continues to pursue her dreams or whatever.
With Lena Dunham hosting the show, there was no way 'SNL' wasn't going to do some kind of 'Girls' parody. And with the recent release of 'Son of God' and the impending arrival of 'Noah,' there was no way the show wasn't going to take a shot at the recent biblical movie revival. So here we are, with a hilarious fake trailer for 'Girl,' which simultaneously skewers the story of Adam and Even and your average episode of HBO's 'Girls.'
Tonight's new episode of 'SNL' offers 'Girls' star Lena Dunham as its host, which should be interesting. Though Dunham is an award winning actress, writer, producer and director, she's not known for her work on stage, and -- as this is a live show -- her appearance could lead to some awkward moments. Read on for our review of tonight's episode!
