'Community' - 'Communication Studies' Recap

'Community' - 'Communication Studies'
(S01E16)
Suddenly I want to spend at least 40 more minutes in the world of 'Community' after tonight's episode. I wonder if those 40 minutes will come back to haunt our dear friend later?

Jeff and Abed tore it up with one of the most bizarre drunk montages I've ever seen, culminating with Abed in the absolute best "aftermath" position I've ever seen. And Jeff did it all to try and make things right with Britta again. Try as they might, those two just can't seem to get their awkward feelings for one another to stop interfering with their relationship as "just-friends."

With the Valentine's Day dance looming, Troy and Pierce tried to regain some of their own dignity early in the episode, only to lose it completely by the end of it. Surprisingly, despite his "skills" on the dance floor, Chang either has no dignity to lose, or has so much that it's impervious to anything he does.

Patrick Dempsey Gets (Out of) a Speeding Ticket (VIDEO)

Jimmy Kimmel Live, Patrick Dempsey gets out of a speeding ticketWhen actors are on the talk show circuit promoting a movie, it must be challenging coming up with funny stories for every show. Fortunately for Patrick Dempsey – out and about promoting 'Valentine's Day' – he had a new story drop right in his lap.

Seems he got stopped for speeding the morning he was scheduled to go on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC). Turns out it was a female cop who, apparently, was a fan and ended up not giving him a ticket. Not only that, but her gruff male partner appeared to be a fan, too. Interesting.

'Grey's Anatomy' - 'Valentine's Day Massacre' Recap

Lexie and Jackson on Grey's
(S06E14) It's Valentine's Day on 'Grey's Anatomy' and to celebrate, we have a restaurant roof collapse. The show claims to have the biggest surgery ever, which turns out to be an arm reattachment, with the arm temporarily being attached to a leg. While it's interesting and I'm sure a rare surgery, it still doesn't compare to separating conjoined twins or being impaled to a car in my book.

While everyone struggles with the multiple surgeries, miraculously, both Arizona and Callie have time to dilly-dally. Arizona tries her hand in playing Cupid on Valentine's, pairing up Bailey with Dr. Warren. Callie gets to check up on Sloan with her free time. What happened to the Callie who used to snap arms back into place?

'Parks and Recreation' - 'Galentine's Day' Recap

by Kona Gallagher, posted Feb 12th 2010 1:16AM
parks and recreation(S02E16) Ron Swanson nailed it tonight. I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with Justin (Justin Theroux), and Swanson summed it up perfectly: he's a tourist. Justin is really only interested in stories. It's been bugging me the entire time he's been on the show, because he seems like a perfectly nice guy in some scenes and a total jerk in others -- but now it all comes together.

Also nailing it? Andy's band. I not only loved his songs (I would totally make them my Valentine's soundtrack), but I enjoyed his befuddlement with the entire situation and his frustration with not being able to tell if the gig was a success or not, due to the lack of ladies flashing him.

Here's Something to Give Your 'Lost'-Loving Significant "Other" on Valentine's Day

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 11th 2010 6:10PM
Lost cardWhat do you get the 'Lost' fan for Valentine's Day? DHARMA chocolates? A copy of 'The Third Policeman?' Advil to take at 10PM every Tuesday night when the latest episode is over?

How about a 'Lost'-themed card? These are pretty darn clever. The Ben one on the right is my favorite. I love the expression on his face, and you can imagine him saying those words.

The card after the jump is my other favorite, though since it's addressed to Kate it seems like only a handful of 'Lost' fans would be able to use it.

A 'Laverne and Shirley' Remake for the Big Screen?

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 10th 2010 10:37AM
laverne_and_shirley_bowlingSchlemiel! Schlimazel! Are you ready to see America's most beloved Milwaukee girls on the make on the big screen? According to director Garry Marshall, creator of 'Happy Days,' he has hopes to put the spinoff from that show, the successful 'Laverne & Shirley' to the movies. As with all the other hopes for silver screen adaptations, this one comes with some fanciful casting attached, too.

Garry was on 'Extra' promoting his new romantic comedy 'Valentine's Day' and revealed the 'Laverne & Shirley' dream casting: Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel. That's right. This pair of Shotz Brewery factory employees -- who live in a basement apartment in 1960 Milwaukee and struggle to find the men of their dreams -- would be played by two of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Is that a cynical way of looking at it? Yes, it is.

Jennifer Garner Gets Defiled by a Dolphin (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 10th 2010 3:35AM
Late Show with David Letterman: Jennifer Garner gets friendly with a dolphinWe've heard that it's quite magical swimming with dolphins, and apparently, the dolphins feel that way, too. In fact, the story Jennifer Garner told on 'Late Show With David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) explains a lot about why dolphins are so friendly with humans.

It seems that Garner was training for a guest spot on 'Fantasy Island,' and one particular dolphin got up close and personal with her. Hmmm ... wonder if there's any dolphins in her new movie, 'Valentine's Day.'

How I Met Your Mother: Rabbit or DuckA heart-shaped box of chocolates can be used for many things: To tell someone you love them. To cheer someone up who's down in the dumps. Or to cover up your private parts when you're sitting naked in a room expecting one person but then another person shows up!

Yes, friends, just look at this clip as a public service announcement from the folks at 'How I Met Your Mother' (Mon., 8PM on CBS). Or would that be pubic service announcement? At any rate, it never hurts to have a box of chocolates around for just such occasions.

Jessica Biel eats chocolate-covered cricket on 'Jay Leno'You know how Jay Leno has that "Earn Your Plug" segment on 'The Jay Leno Show' (weeknights, 10PM ET on NBC)? Jessica Biel definitely earned her plug on last night's show.

Oh, the chocolate-covered strawberries were a treat, and even the chocolate-covered pizza wasn't so bad. But when she fearlessly ate the chocolate-covered cricket that Jay brought out, he was downright impressed!

Catch Biel in the star-studded 'Valentine's Day,' in theaters Feb. 12.

The Jay Leno Show, Jessica Alba, Sexy GolfThe words "golf" and "sexy" aren't usually used in the same sentence -- unless you're Jessica Alba getting a golf lesson on 'The Jay Leno Show' (weeknights, 10PM ET on NBC).

Things got interesting when Alba was told to "stroke the ball to the hole" ("I'm a married woman!"), and Jay Leno even managed to get up close and personal during the lesson. Catch Alba in 'Valentine's Day,' arriving in theaters Feb. 12.

Nick at Nite gets Fran for Nanny Valentine's celebration

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 30th 2010 9:00AM
The_nanny_wedding_fran_max_cbsHow's this for a romantic and funny way to celebrate Valentine's Day: make it a week-long marathon of The Nanny episodes on Nick at Nite. What? That's not red roses, Dove chocolates and champagne to you?

The idea of reliving the sitcom fun of the nanny named Fran blowing into the life of theatrical producer Maxwell Sheffield and falling in love with him while taking care of his three children was the stuff of television romance when it aired on CBS from 1993 to 1999.

Part The Sound of Music, part schmaltzy broad Jewish shtick, The Nanny was fun stuff. For this marathon, Fran herself, actress Fran Drescher will host the week which Nick has dubbed Valentine Schmalentine.

George Lopez Talks New Show 'Lopez Tonight,' 'Valentine's Day' ... and Old Friend Taylor Lautner

by Nicholas White, posted Nov 2nd 2009 5:15PM
George Lopez is having a busy year. Not only did he tour the country on his 'Tall, Dark and Chicano' stand-up tour, he had a hit HBO special, starred in 2010's 'Valentine's Day' opposite Ashton Kutcher, and has a late-night TBS talk show, 'Lopez Tonight,' premiering in November. Lopez laid relatively low last year, campaigning for President Obama in 2008 and as voice of the successful 'Beverly Hills Chihuahua,' which grossed almost $150 million worldwide. And weirdly, Lopez now finds himself working with some of Michael Jackson's creative people on 'Lopez Tonight.'
