VIDEO: ‘Community’ Stars Poke Fun of ‘True Detective’

True Detective may be one of HBO's hottest shows right now, but Community stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash aren't so sure that everyone truly understands what Matthew McConaughey (Rust) and Woody Harrelson (Marty) are saying in the cop drama.

For a short segment on McHale's satiric E! talk show, The Soup, the comedian slips into McConaughey's role while Rash pulls of his impression of Harrelson on the new series. In recreating key scenes, the pair not only exaggerate the characters' southern accents but also spout some nonsensical dialogue, a crack at the show's lines rich that are rich with metaphors.

Regardless of whether or not folks can understand what Rust and Marty are saying every Sunday night, it doesn't seem to be hurting viewership!

"I don't want them following me to an AA [alcoholics anonymous] meeting," she said, sitting in her apartment with a companion. When asked if she ever feels like a prisoner, she added, "Yes, all the time."

The Mean Girls actress opened up about her wild past and claimed she's not interested in partying anymore as she's already done everything there is to do. "There's nothing left in a having a drink for me. What's left in that feeling? Nothing. There's no party that I haven't gone to, there's no person I haven't hung out with. There's no situation I haven't been exposed to," she explained.

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Drama, Prime Time, BBC, Internet, Video

The BBC has extended a nice holiday gift to Sherlock fans, by way of releasing a mini-episode prequel to the show's third season.

Simply titled "Many Happy Returns," the 7-minute video - penned by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat - sees Inspector Lestrade listening to a convincing theory that Sherlock Holmes is still alive and solving cases two years after his supposed death. Although Benedict Cumberbatch doesn't get much face time save for a previously recorded video played at the end of the clip, we do get to see plenty of Martin Freeman (Dr. John Watson)! Enjoy your British TV Christmas gift - hopefully it'll hold you over until the show returns to PBS on January 19th!

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Comedy, Talk Shows, Cable, Internet, News, Video

"I read that and I loved it and we'd gone through rehearsal and I could barely breathe in rehearsal and when we got to the show, I honestly thought that I would be fine. It seemed like if I take a breath first [it would be ok]…'and of course his mother,' and before the 'M' even came out of my mouth I'm like, 'I'm done. I'm just done.'"

- Stephen Colbert recalls a rare moment when he broke character and laughed at the pronunciation of Munchma Quchi, the mother of Suq Madiq, an Arab-American viewer who had recently donated to his Super Pac.
