    TV Picks: 'Community,' HBO Sunday series, 'Brothers Hypnotic'
    "Community" (NBC, Thursdays). Ratings have been reported historically low, but that this show, which now bears almost no relation to anything we have heretofore recognized as a sitcom, is surviving at all on a broadcast network seems miraculous to me....

    Even if you don't know Steve Jobs from Steve Wozniak, you're likely going to laugh your butt off watching "Silicon Valley" (9 p.m. Sunday, HBO; 3.5 stars out of 4). Co-created by Mike Judge, the show pokes fun at every aspect of the tech mecca of Silicon...
  • Ellen Gray: AMC takes 'Turn' into history, HBO finds laughs in 'Silicon Valley'

    Mike Judge dives gleefully into the tech world with 'Silicon Valley'
    There was a time when Mike Judge feared that he'd missed the Google bus to the tech boom. The writer-director, best known for creating MTV's "Beavis and Butthead," first thought of a TV series about the digital world in 1999. At the time, he was in...

    Bigger-not-better sequel "Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead" picks up where the 2009 first edition left off, not just plotwise but in taking "over the top" as a starting point. Thus, the original's gradual buildup toward inspired outrageousness is replaced by...
