In this series from comedy kings David Crane & Jeffrey Klarik, an overeager romantic hosts the ultimate surprise party for his fiancée: a reunion of their third-grade classmates to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the day they met. Although the party turns out to be a disaster, the lives of the eight attendees remain inextricably bound together from that day forward.

In this action-packed show set in 2048, a worse-for-wear cop teams up with a second-hand synthetic android to fight a strain of urban crime that’s evolved in ever more frightening ways. Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban) survived a catastrophic attack on the city’s police department that cost him nearly everything. Returning over a year later, he finds the transition difficult. Not only does he suffer guilt for the lethal ambush, but department policy now requires that every cop be paired with a highly evolved human-like android partner. Rejecting policy, Kennex reinstates an outdated Dorian (Michael Ealy) android — whose somewhat dysfunctional platform is based on a “Synthetic Soul” program, allowing it to have emotional responses. It’s this flawed humanity, however, that connects Dorian and John. And together, they set out to keep the city safe, uncover the criminal conspiracy that threatens to destroy their world … and find their common humanity. From creator J.H. Wyman and producer J.J. Abrams, Almost Human also stars Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook, Michael Irby and Lili Taylor.

As tensions mount, it becomes clear that the outwardly idyllic Sanders clan isn’t as perfect as once thought, nor are their captors as evil as one might suspect.
How do you kill a man…who’s a machine?

Never rebroadcast nor distributed since broadcasting live from New York during the 1956/1957 TV season! Buddy Hackett plays Stanley Peck, the gregarious proprietor of a newsstand in a plush New York hotel. As a connoisseur and confidant to the hotel’s guests he keeps busy from basement to penthouse.

TV’s first real foray into the realm of high fantasy was a truly ahead of its time combination of awesome adventure and witty self-awareness. Prolific sitcom writer Don Reo (The John Larroquette Show, Two and a Half Men) had a different vision in mind than previous grim and gritty attempts at the genre as seen in cinema – a vision underscored by the show’s own opening titles, which frame the action as comic book panels. Jeff Conaway stars as valiant Prince Erik Greystone who, along with his strongman sidekick pal Marko (Walter Olkewicz), battles evil Prince Dirk Blackpool (Duncan Regehr) and malevolent magic-user Vector (Clive Revill) for control of the continent of Aperans and his country of Camarand. And for the hand of fair, spoiled and leather pants-obsessed Princess Ariel (Julia Duffy). Now the time has come to heed the call of adventure – and comedy!
James Stewart made a rare sojourn into the world of Situation Comedy on NBC at the dawn of the Seventies.

Jim and wife Martha are busy raising an eight-year-old, as is their twenty-nine-year-old first born, Peter (James Daly) and his wife, Wendy (Ellen Geer). And “Uncle Teddy” (Dennis Larson) is sure to demand “the proper respect” from his five-day-older nephew, Jake (Kirby Furlong). It’s a good thing Jim has a Nobel Prize-winning best friend, chemistry professor Dr. Luther Quince (John McGiver) to help make sense of the chaos, especially after a house fire forces Peter’s family to move in with Jim’s!

In this incarnation Batman/Bruce Wayne is younger, and still learning (hinted by a brief appearance by Lieutenant Gordon on television at the end of the episode). The costume/character design of the character seems to combine a look reminiscent of the character’s original design from Detective #27 with a more latex/rubbery texture. This also marks one of the first times that the writers have embraced Batman’s talents as a detective which is a refreshing and fantastic change from previous interpretations.
Alfred Pennyworth is less the quiet, reserved butler and more MI-6 badass in this incarnation. With a shaved head, and a gravelly voice similar to Jason Statham, this Alfred is a bit more proactive in The Batman’s war on crime, testing and rating Bruce on his fighting techniques. He is also responsible for hiring Tatsu Yamashiro, another DC crimefighter known as Katana.
Finally, the rogues were a refreshing change from the atypical Bat-nemeses. These episodes included such characters as Professor Pyg, Mister Toad, Junkyard Dog, Magpie, Anarky, Lady Shiva, Silver Monkey, Humpty Dumpty, Tobias Whale, Killer Croc, Man-Bat, Deathstroke and Ra’s al Ghul and appearances by other established DC characters include Barbara Gordon, Manhunter, Harvey Dent and Metamorpho.
The series is fast paced, well written and thoroughly entertaining and a must see for every Bat-fan.
Perhaps the best interpretation of the character in any medium, Batman The Brave & The Bold is an absolute joy to watch. Unlike the groundbreaking Batman The Animated Series, Batman The Brave & The Bold is aimed at a younger audience, but captures the magic of why superheroes are fun better than anything else (including comics) in the past thirty years.
Featuring nonstop adventure with a touch of comic relief, this series focuses on the Caped Crusader teaming up with heroes from across the DC Universe.

Rock, G.I. Robot, Star Girl, The Freedom Fighters, Scooby-Doo, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel Jr.
Evoking not only the Adam West series of the 1960s, but also the humor of the Dick Sprang/Charlie Paris era comics, Batman: The Brave and The Bold has essentially become the finest interpretation of the character ever presented.
Deidrich Bader plays the Caped Crusader with his tongue planted firmly in cheek, combining the delivery of the iconic interpretations of Adam West and Kevin Conroy. Other notable contributing voice artists include John DiMaggio, Will Friedle, Michael Dorn, R.
