A 'Community' episode for all time

To say that Thursday night's "Community" was the most impressive half hour of television this season is a severe understatement.

The episode started off simply, with the study group attending Troy and Abed's housewarming party, but when the time came for someone to be chosen to go downstairs to get the pizza, Jeff decided to roll Yahtzee dice to determine who had to go. Abed pointed out that he was creating six different timelines, and that's where the fun began.

For example, when Annie got the pizza, Troy found a gun in her purse; a gun which went off and shot Pierce in the timeline where Troy got the pizza (things got really bad here, as Troy's absence also ended up starting a fire).

Love, loss and a penis transplant on 'Grey's'

Love, loss and a penis transplant on 'Grey's'

After the requisite Seattle skyline shot(s), last night's "Grey's Anatomy" opened with Meredith folding baby Zola's clothes, partly because it gives her comfort, and partly because she knows that by the time she and Derek get the little girl back - IF they get her back - she'll have long outgrown them.

"The human body is designed to compensate for loss," says Meredith. "It adapts; so it no longer needs the thing it can't have. But sometimes the loss is too great and the body can't compensate on its own. That's when surgeons get involved."

Lexie breezes through the house, luggage in tow, to deliver her scant few lines in this episode. Seriously, where has Lexie been? Are the writers waiting for her bad-choice bangs to grow out before they give her story lines again?

Lindsay Lohan's dental debacle

Lindsay Lohan’s teeth are causing quite a stink. People reports that the starlet’s smile was looking shabby on a red carpet in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and LiLo’s rep is firing back at media reports, defending his clients’ looks.

"Lindsay is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful women on the planet, and is regularly sought-after by some of the top photographers in the world to appear on covers of magazines around the globe,” Lindsay’s rep Steve Honig commented to CNN regarding the widely distributed (and disturbing) photos.

Honig would also like us to avert our gaze: “There are so many more important issues the media should be focusing on, such as homelessness, lack of funding for public education and relations between America and its allies."

A 'Star Trek' reunion on 'Big Bang Theory'

As if it wasn't enough to see Sheldon's "mortal enemy" Wil Wheaton back on Thursday night's episode of "The Big Bang Theory" (already a cause for celebration), we also got two "Star Trek: The Next Generation" alums for the price of one.

When Sheldon and Leonard got the fateful invite to Wil's party, Sheldon refused, but Leonard was seriously considering it. This led to "Schrodinger's Friendship," based on the famous scientific experiment, of course.

Watching Sheldon simultaneously be Leonard's best friend and mortal enemy (and boy, is there a long list of those, on a five and a quarter inch floppy) was a riot.

Fred Durst to star in CBS sitcom

If you were a fan of Limp Bizkit, you’re in luck, because frontman Fred Durst is planning a comeback as a sitcom star. According to Deadline, Durst is working on a half-hour comedy project with CBS.

The king of nu-metal is set to star in and produce an upcoming series, which has a tentative title that rhymes with "mooshbag." (And no, we can't say it.)

The show follows a “rock legend” trying to balance raising a family with a high profile lifestyle.

Hilary Swank donates money from Chechen leader

After apologizing for attending an event hosted by Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov on October 5, Hilary Swank is now giving away the money she received for showing up.

As we've seen in the past, celebrities can be paid by various figures to appear at certain events or to perform, as was the case with stars like Beyonce, Nelly Furtado and Mariah Carey, when they accepted money to entertain members of Moammar Gadhafi's family.

This appears to be what has happened with Hilary Swank, the Oscar winning actress who has been criticized by human rights organizations for showing up at Kadyrov's birthday event, although there are allegations of human rights abuses against him.
