Where does the Entourage movie fit in the spectrum of TV shows adapted into movies? Does it improve the universe? Ruin it? Or none of the above?
The Entourage movie kicks over the neat narrative piles the show swept up, only to clean everything back up again, making the film feel even more redundant and unnecessary.
We talk to 21 and Over's chief villain and resident cheerleader Jonathan Keltz (who is actually really nothing like his on screen counterpart) about playing a broad villain, why his character is secretly kind of a hero, keeping up his energy levels, and what makes this film different from a lot of teen comedies.
If you've been missing the humorously misogynistic d-baggery of Entourage, then Showtime's newest hard hour comedy House of Lies might just be the show for you.
In this (mostly) television-related episode Jeff and Will are joined by the Shelf's resident TV dorks Kathleen Corrigan and Ian MacIntyre, as well as TV critic Kat Angus of Dose.ca's excellent TV Casualty Podcast. The group discusses their favourite returning shows, shows they are looking forward to in 2011, the state of television in Canada, and even find time to challenge one another to ridiculously obscure TV trivia.
