Netflix brought back Wet Hot American Summer for a series revival back in 2015 after development of a sequel to the 2001 Sundance comedy hit was happening for years. Instead of making good upon the promise of a 10-year reunion teased at the end of the movie, the series went back to the first day at Camp Firewood, which was all the more ridiculous simply because it had a cast of actors and actress in their 30s and 40s playing teenagers. But now the reunion we’ve all been waiting for is finally coming.
Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is a new eight episode continuation of the goofy camp comedy that brings back (almost) all of the original cast members again as we flash forward to their lives in 1991. It looks just as insane as the prequel series was, and it even has some new cast members joining the fun.

If you’re a fan of the FOX animated series Bob’s Burgers, then you probably already know that this weekend marks its milestone 100th episode. If you’re not a fan of Bob’s Burgers, then you should probably watch it on Netflix or Hulu and join in the hilarity.
In case you didn’t know, just last month the cast of Bob’s Burgers got together for some recent live shows in Los Angeles that featured H. Jon Benjamin (Bob), John Roberts (Linda), Dan Mintz (Tina), Eugene Mirman (Gene), and Kristen Schaal (Louise) all doing stand-up, table reads and more in front of a live audience. Before the show began, a short film called Bob’s Burgers Live!: The Movie revealed how the cast was rounded up for the event, and it was a little more complicated and dramatic than you might anticipate.

While we eagerly await the first full-length Jessica Jones trailer, Netflix has dropped the first promo for its other big November debut, Aziz Ansari‘s brand-new comedy series Master of None. And it looks every bit as intriguing, albeit for completely different reasons.
The show centers on a character not very unlike Ansari himself: Dev, a 30something actor trying to navigate love and career in New York City. Which may not be the most unique-sounding premise in the world, but Ansari brings his own unique perspective to things. Kelvin Yu, Lena Waithe, Eric Wareheim, Noël Wells, and H. Jon Benjamin also star. Watch the Master of None trailer after the jump. Read More »

Post-Finale Update: So that was delectably epic.
This Sunday at 11: 45 p.m. ET, the rolling, clueless glob better known as Meatwad enters our Meatspace. Sort of. He’ll appear as, erm, an exercise ball, as seen above. In celebration of the season finale, Aqua Teen Hunger Force is airing its first ever live-action episode during its six seasons on [adult swim]. Vocoder rapper, T-Pain, will portray Frylock, the show’s patient, levitating box of French fries. Red Alert: TP’s neck blingee features Mooninites. This fall, T-Pain will also play The Ghost of Spring Break, alongside Lil’ Wayne, Andy Samberg, and Rick Ross, on the [adult swim] special The Return of Freaknik, an animated ode to Atlanta’s infamous ass-bash. Check out the rude and ridic trailer.
Rounding out the cast for Sunday’s Force is cool comedian H. Jon Benjamin (Human Giant, Demitri Martin) as Master Shake and possibly our fave: open audition-winner, Dave Long Jr., as the wife-beater-lovin’ human disgrace known as Carl Brutananadilewski. Pictures and the esoteric episode synopsis after the jump…
