It’s always bizarre to re-watch the pilot episode of a long-running television series, especially a situation comedy. Both ‘Friends’ and ‘ER’ are celebrating the 20th anniversaries of their debut over the next few days, but watching the ‘ER’ pilot almost feels like watching a movie. The pace of ‘ER’ came first and the characters were established later (we didn’t get to know too much about Noah Wyle’s John Carter, other than that he was new and that he was scared). ‘Friends’ didn’t have this luxury. The first scene of ‘Friends’ takes place in a coffee shop, so we really have no choice other than to meet these people. And the thing is, in this first episode, these people are kind of awful.

As if we needed further proof that the folks behind 'Parks and Recreation' are the absolute coolest, they have now convinced filmmaker Werner Herzog to guest star on the upcoming seventh and final season. Or maybe this thing we call existence is all just a part of the ongoing experimental art exhibit called Werner Herzog's life, and we're just living in it. Maybe he'll just say yes to anything. Maybe he's available to film and narrate bar mitzvahs. Maybe he's just never been asked.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Chris Pratt may be showing off his body more than, uh, usual in this week's new Marvel release (evidence below, and that's just a small sample), but just because the actor got in shape for the part doesn't mean it's the first time he's used his body for a role. Oh, no! Turns out, Pratt broke away from the bonds of clothing before, particularly on NBC's 'Parks and Recreation.'

Earlier today we saw NBC delivering the first full trailer for its upcoming 'Constantine' adaptation, but the network had plenty more to give in advance of the Upfront presentation tomorrow.

NBC

It seemed sort of inevitable given the way things have been heading with 'Parks in Recreation' over the last couple of seasons, and with chances of renewal always uncertain, we knew that the season 6 finale could've easily served as a series finale. But now it's official: Leslie Knope and the gang will say farewell as 'Parks and Rec' makes season 7 its last on their own terms.

And while NBC hasn't confirmed the seventh season as its last, producer Mike Schur got on the horn to discuss the show's surprising fast-forward, including one very 'Mad' man cameo, and what it means for the future Pawnee of 2017.

Paul Schneider is what you might politely call "a straight shooter." Though, it's not too often an interview is conducted with an actor who honestly appears to want to be doing anything else with his life other than acting.
