Movie Review: 'The Muppets' return beautifully to life

Jason Segel, James Bobin and company make the ultimate Muppet fan movie

HitFix has a full, talented roster of film writers (and that's not even counting when Drew gets his adorable son to adorably interview Kermit and Miss Piggy) and my schedule doesn't usually give me much time to either see or write about movies. But for some films, I make an exception, and "The Muppets" is one of those. Drew already wrote his own review, and I have a lot of thoughts on the film - meant, like most of my TV reviews, to be read after you've seen it, so don't click through if you don't want to know about the cameos and various jokes - coming up just as soon as I travel by map...

Happy Thanksgiving, sitcom-style!

Why not spend some time today with your old friends from 'WKRP' and 'Cheers'?

Happy Thanksgiving, to all my American readers! (And happy Thursday morning to everyone else.) In what's become something of an annual blog tradition for me, I'm going to embed two of the all-time classic sitcom episodes about Thanksgiving: "Turkeys Away," from "WKRP in Cincinnati" and "Thanksgiving Orphans" from "Cheers." If you have some time to kill before football, turkey, or whatever your family's Thanksgiving plans entail, enjoy some retro laughter, particularly in the climax of each episode.

Contest: Win a copy of 'The Office: Special Edition' on DVD

It's been a decade since Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant introduced the British original

It's now been 10 years (and a few months) since Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's "The Office" debuted in the UK, and to commemorate the anniversary (and give TV comedy fans a good gift option for the holidays), a new DVD set is coming out today. "The Office: Special Edition" features all 12 episodes, plus the Christmas special that wrapped up that series and its characters, plus a variety of bonus features, some seen on previous DVD sets, some brand new (including the complete version of the original pilot, Gervais and Merchant introducing the season 1 episodes, and interviews with them and fans of the show like Hugh Jackman and Richard Curtis).
