Spot the Celebrity! James Corden Crashes a Fan's House for a Game of Hide and Seek with Colin Farrell, Demi Lovato and More Stars

Originally posted 03/17/2016 11:15AM

James Corden is thinking out of the box – quite literally.

For Wednesday night's episode of The Late Late Show – which marked the end of the British comedian's first year as host – he decided that instead of shooting in the CBS studio, he would bring his show "to the people" and film the entire episode in a random person's living room.

He packed up his entire crew, and after roaming the streets of Los Angeles (and getting turned down by a few residents!), he stumbled into the home of Natalie and her three friends.

True Detective Season 2 Finale Review: Multiplying Corpses, Dwindling Fascination

Originally posted 08/09/2015 11:20PM

True Detective Season 2 wrapped up with a 90-minute episode Sunday night, and the heart of the mystery turned out to be what theorists had been speculating online recently. Not that it was ever obvious – you'd have had to be watching very closely from the start to come up with the right conclusion.

Spoiler alert about the killer/killers.

Then again, the series didn't necessarily encourage you to pay close attention. There seemed to be hundreds of repetitive scenes in which Vince Vaughn, as a fundamentally noble mobster-businessman, tried to iron things out with his fundamentally noble wife (Kelly Reilly). If she'd been a proper femme fatale or old-school moll, that would have been different. Instead, they were Phil and Claire Dunphy making do in a rotten stinking world.

Can the True Detective Finale Redeem a Truly Disappointing Second Season?

Originally posted 08/07/2015 12:30PM

Note to haters of season 2 of HBO's True Detective: You have a point.

The series heads into its 90-minute finale Sunday with none of the intense anticipation that preceded the conclusion of season 1 in March 2014. Dissatisfaction with this sprawling but tepid L.A. noir – set not in Los Angeles proper but a scummy neighboring municipality called Vinci – has been voiced so clearly, HBO's programming president recently assured the conference of the Television Critics Association that TD2's conclusion will be very satisfying.

However, a bright silk bow isn't much good when it's tied around an old cardboard shoebox.

[YOUTUBE "G0PYK0nXx4g"] Have you been watching the current season of True Detective and thinking "Hey, this would be better with more car chases?"

Well, at least several other people thought so too, and now a mash-up of the show with another famous Los Angeles-based cop series, Starsky & Hutch, delivers exactly that, with the latter's classic theme song to boot.

True Detective Review: A Huge, Disturbing Mystery

Originally posted 06/21/2015 05:30PM

By the end of the first three episodes of season 2 of HBO's True Detective, you'll begin to detect a huge, disturbing mystery, much as you might begin to detect a big, hairy, red-eyed spider as you make your way across a spider web. (This imagines, of course, that you have been made very tiny.) It's powerful. And unnerving.

But you have to make your way across all that web first. The premiere is tons and tons of web – nothing but web: sticky and frustrating.

Colin Farrell Admits He Was Once a (Mistaken) Attempted Murder Suspect

Colin Farrell Admits He Was Once a (Mistaken) Attempted Murder Suspect

Colin Farrell was once a suspect in an attempted-murder case: True or False?

The actor confessed his terrifying ordeal Thursday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon during a game called "True Confessions." Farrell's True Detective season 2 costar, Vince Vaughn, then grilled him for answers.

As part of the game, each actor was given two envelopes – one with a truth and one with a lie. One envelope was chosen, and the person had to read what was written inside in the form of a statement while the other players had exactly one minute to ask questions and decide if they were telling the truth.

"Is it true?" Fallon asked.
