The Coen Brothers make movies about quirky characters, but it would be nice if Noah Hawley and the team behind the Fargo TV series would remember that there’s more to those movies than the quirk. In adapting both the Fargo movie and borrowing several other beats from the Big Book of Coen, the Fargo TV series leans heavily on the quirkiness, and season 4 practically goes overboard, populating this latest installment with a collection of individuals who all behave like visitors from another planet. That’s not to say Fargo season 4 is without its charms.

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 Bill Murray, Sofia Coppola, and Netflix have it their way, A Very Murray Christmas will become a new holiday classic. So even though it’s a brand-new variety special, the latest promo is going the retro route, modeling itself after those Time Life infomercials of yore.
But angling for holiday classic status is one thing. Whether A Very Murray Christmas actually achieves it is another question. Happily, the early buzz suggests we may have another perennial favorite on our hands. Watch the latest A Very Murray Christmas trailer, and get the early buzz on the holiday special, after the jump.

After premiering at SXSW earlier this year, the indie comedy 7 Chinese Brothers will put Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore, Moonrise Kingdom, Scott Pilgrim vs. The world) back into unlikeable mode next month. But thankfully, he doesn’t seem to be anywhere near the arrogant prick that he played in the Sundance selected Listen Up Philip.
This time the Wes Anderson favorite plays Larry, a slacker bartender who was just fired for drinking on the job (he favors the drink anytime really). But he might be able to turn things around when he gets a job at a nearby tire and lube shop, even though he doesn’t really have the skills to complete his everyday tasks.
