New Teaser For 'Wet Hot American Summer' Miniseries Released: VIDEO

Whas2

The good news is that Wet Hot American Summer will get an eight-episode prequel miniseries set to air on Netflix this summer. The even better news is that the streaming service has confirmed that the majority of the original cast will return for this iteration (that includes Christopher Meloni, David Hyde Pierce and Paul Rudd). Plot-wise, whereas the original film took place on the last day of camp, the prequel will take place on day one.

Two other returning cast members are none other than Bradley Cooper and Michael Ian Black, who you may recall have a very memorable scene in the film that involves nothing but a tool shed and two pairs of tube socks. Let's hope these two get a lot more play in the new series.

Watch the new teaser and also revisit Black and Cooper's must-see scene, AFTER THE JUMP...

Michael Urie On Gay Sex and TV: 'Change The Channel'

Michael Urie Marc St James

Actor Michael Urie has a simple solution for people like Billy Crystal who have a problem with gay sex scenes on television: don't watch. In an interview with New Now Next, the former Ugly Betty and future What's Your Emergency? actor had this to say to people who don't like seeing the gays engaging in behaviors the straights have been doing on screens both big and small for generations:

I don’t think it’s overexposed. If gay sex on TV is too much for you, change the channel and don’t watch it, it’s not for you. I think there is far too much football on TV. But I’m not going around saying they should take football off the air; I’m changing the channel.

Simple solutions to complex problems.

On Monday ABC announced the latest additions to its list of pilots that it’s picked up for 2015. Along with a new show from Shonda Rhimes and a TV adaptation of National Lampoon’s Vacation, the network has greenlit a single-camera comedy based on Dan Savage’s young life.

The as-of-yet untitled sitcom will center around a "picture-perfect family" dealing with its youngest son’s coming out, The Hollywood Reporter notes: "What seems like the end of their idyllic life turns out to be the beginning of a bright new chapter when everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real." Savage himself is on-board to produce. 

ABC’s pilot will mark Savage’s first venture into network television following a limited run on MTV with two It Gets Better specials and a season of Savage U.

'Looking' Back: Episode 11, 'Looking Top To Bottom'

Episode-11-1024

The third episode of Looking’s second season, “Looking Top To Bottom,” was a big step for Patrick (Jonathan Groff) and Kevin (Russell Tovey), but, maybe it’s the Dutch courage talking, it wasn’t my favorite episode.

One of the series’ strengths is the chemistry between the actors. Even though characters came together (at the rugby game, at a breakfast, etc.) they still felt like they were enmeshed in separate stories playing out in proximity to one another, rather than playing off each other and adding dimension. It felt like a transition episode. Since the group started the season off all together, now they’re starting to drift off into their own complications to play out the rest of the season. We'll consider this a set-up chapeter, and hopefully we'll see more overlapping in the coming weeks.

Dive in to some more thoughts on tonight’s episode and share yours, AFTER THE JUMP
