Beavis and Butthead

If there are two things Hollywood loves right now, it’s 1990s nostalgia and reviving dormant properties. In that light, it’s probably just a matter of time before someone, somewhere, makes another attempt to bring back the iconic animated comedy Beavis and Butt-Head. Series creator Mike Judge, for one, thinks it could happen. Although this time, there could be a twist: Judge speculates that it could return as a live-action series.  Read More »

idiocracy

In 2006, Fox dumped Mike Judge‘s Idiocracy into theaters. The film sat on the shelf for over a year, dealt with poor test screening scores, and, worst of all, with little promotion, it barely got a theatrical release. Over the years, though, Idiocracy has gained a passionate cult following.

With the comedy’s 10th anniversary coming up, actress Maya Rudolph says Mike Judge is considering going on tour for the film, conducting screenings and Q&As. Learn more about the potential event below.

nerdland

Sausage Party isn’t the only R-rated animated film featuring a standout cast we’ll see this year. Next month, Nerdland will make its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, and the voice cast includes Paul Rudd, Patton Oswalt, Mike JudgeHannibal Buress, Molly Shannon, and Kate Micucci. For some, this film may have come out of nowhere, but if you’re always keeping an eye on what screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en) is working on, then you might’ve already heard about this adult animated feature.

Now the first Nerdland trailer has arrived, and you can watch it after the jump. (Be warned: It’s a red-band trailer, which means it’s slightly NSFW.)

Silicon Valley Season three teaser

Season two of Silicon Valley did not disappoint. The episode where Pied Piper (minor spoiler alert) live-streamed somebody trapped at the bottom of a ravine? Wonderful. The season two finale ended things on a high note with a surprisingly suspenseful final episode. What’s changed for Pied Piper since season two? Based on the Silicon Valley season three teaser, not much.

Michael Bolton Office Space

If you celebrate the entire Mike Judge catalog like we do, you’re going to want to watch this latest video from the Funny or Die team. They got Michael Bolton – the real Michael Bolton – to reenact scenes from Judge’s comedy Office Space. Of course, in that movie, actor David Herman played a character named “Michael Bolton,” which set the stage for numerous jokes about his name. Many of those you can see here, with the real Bolton awkwardly digitally inserted into the film.

It’s a short, super funny video, mostly because the Office Space scenes are still so great. Check out the Michael Bolton Office Space video below. Read More »

HBO Silicon Valley

HBO subscriptions are expensive, and not all of us have Facebook or Google money. But as long as you’ve got an Internet connection, you can check out the full first episode of HBO’s Silicon Valley for free.

Created by Mike Judge, the half-hour comedy centers around a group of Bay Area techies who want to hit the big time — and then, somewhat unexpectedly, actually do so. Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, and Josh Brener star. HBO has now put the entire premiere episode online, and you can watch it after the jump.
