Is this really the end for 'Key & Peele'?

Keegan-Michael Key's declaration that this current season of "Key & Peele" would be the sketch comedy's last was a surprise to many fans. But the people working on the show have known for almost a year.

12 reasons to love 'BoJack Horseman' season 2

Unexpected satire, fake Disneyland, Vincent Adultman, and more

It's been a week since Netflix released season 2 of "BoJack Horseman." After watching the season's first six episodes, I raved about how the show continues to maintain an improbable balance of surreal comedy and unflinching melancholy, and that balance remained steady throughout the season's second half.

'Rick and Morty' creators: At its best, 'It almost starts to feel like the television is broken'

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland on Mr. Meeseks, sci-fi sitcom storytelling, and more from their Adult Swim gem

The future of Dan Harmon's "Community" remains very much up in the air (at this point, if Yahoo orders another season, it would likely be a "Community: The New Class" approach, with Joel McHale, Jim Rash and a bunch of newbies). The future of Harmon and Justin Roiland's Adult Swim series "Rick and Morty," on the other hand, seems so secure that, in an interview earlier this week, the two creators made several casual references to things they intend to do in season 3.

The first 'Sopranos' episode to address the show's critics, before they even saw it

Christopher wants more respect, Tony fears for his future, and Melfi's family wants her to break up with 'Patient X'

Welcome to the eighth installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine.

Thoughts on the eighth episode, “The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti," coming up just as soon as I devote my energies to the dignity of Connie Francis...
