Yikes. Some over-zealous fans are hurling some horrible things at critics giving it anything-less-than-perfect review.
Oh jeez. This certainly complicates things. TMZ is reporting from an unnamed Community-staff source that Chevy’s walking off the set was handled very professionally and that Harmon was out of line when he “unloaded on him” at the wrap party. In general the source makes it clear that he stands behind Chevy.
He snarls in response to his wife’s request that he drive their daughter to soccer that soccer is “Europe’s covert war for the hearts and minds of America’s kids.”
Tells a kid named Kyle that he has a good “man’s name,” only to be crushed when he learns it’s the kid’s mother’s maiden name. (Side note: If you’re going to have your tradition-masculinity-obsessed hero talk about what is and isn’t a good man’s name, I’m not sure “Kyle” is the best example.)
Says he likes where he works because it “smells like balls in here.”
Laments boys who play soccer and use hair gel.
Doubles over in agony about his daughter’s boyfriend going to a tanning salon.
Laughs hysterically at the idea that his wife could drive his truck for a day and he could drive the minivan.
Encounters a weak, “unmanly” day care provider who doesn’t let him call his grandson “champ” because it “implies victory over another person.” Said unmanly man invites Mike to meet another kid’s “two dads” who are inside making flax and pumpkin muffins. “Please tell me that’s not [the dads’] names,” says Mike.
Directly after hearing about the “two dads,” is asked to take his shoes off because they’re “building a mosque out of pillows.” When he hears this, he grabs his grandson and grabs him from the daycare and runs.
Tells his daughter that her son can’t go to that daycare anymore, because he’ll wind up “dancing on a float,” which Allen follows with an imitation of, I guess, a gay man dancing. He adds, “The only time men should be dancing is when people are shooting at their feet.”
“I’m not an ATM. You know how I know? I only speak English.”
All the awful, homophobic, xenophobic, ethnocentric, misogynistic, ass-backwards things that happen on the 22-minute pilot of Tim Allen’s new sitcom. (via eliotglazer)
This is on the same network as Modern Family. What the hell is going on here.
Boiled down, Fox and the voice talent are at odds (once again) over pay and a cut of the syndication and merchandising money. It’s gotten to the point where unless Fox can greatly reduce costs they’re going to kill the 23 year old show.
I, for one, hope it doesn’t end this way and that the creators get to finish on their own terms.
Let’s hope the special effects for Terra Nova are better than this.
Are they serious with this? Did this arrive in a time machine from 1985?
Anne Hathaway’s stunt double rode the bike down the steps of the stand-in Carnegie Mellon University building and collided with an IMAX camera. An IMAX camera that most likely cost somewhere in the millions of dollars.
TMZ has a video that I couldn’t get to work.
Broadway celebs and bway centric twitters are reporting that someone may have died backstage at tonight’s performance of How To Succeed… John Laroquette and Dan Radcliffe came out and apologized for the tragedy and canceling the show. Jeez.
Today was their 100th show as well.
