Very few shows can walk the fine line between drama and comedy. "Scrubs," however, seems to cruise the line just fine through nine seasons. During its nine-year run, the American medical comedy series brought more than just laughs.

If you’ve been waiting for the season two premiere of Fox’s "Empire" on Wednesday, you might want to catch a special sneak-peek of it this weekend in Gainesville.
“Gainesville,” a new show on CMT network, is set to air back-to-back episodes Aug. 20 at 10 p.m. While some may be excited that a reality television series will take place within their own city, others don’t think “Gainesville” will accurately represent all aspects of the show’s namesake city.
The newest installment of the “National Lampoon’s Vacation” series was released last week, only to be met with overly harsh criticism. Though it’s necessary to swallow any preconceived ideas of high comedy prior to seeing “Vacation,” the film is not bad — idiotic, yes, but certainly not the terrible movie it’s been made out to be.
Last weekend’s release of the comedy film “Trainwreck” solidified Amy Schumer as this year’s breakthrough comedian. Although not everyone can digest Schumer’s typical stand-up routines, most audiences will laud her writing and performance in her big-screen debut.
CMT is capturing “the ‘ville” in a new documentary-style reality television series titled “Gainesville.”
The Backyard at Boca Fiesta and Palomino is hosting a film race where contestants are required to create a one- to five-minute film good enough to impress judges and audience members — all within 48 hours.
The premise of the entire Jurassic Park franchise and its new record-setting addition “Jurassic World” can be summed up in a brief statement uttered by one of the film’s minor characters: “These people, they never learn.”
“Furious 7” surpassed the $800 million mark globally and broke records since its release earlier this month. The film’s success may be attributed to the highly anticipated emotional farewell to the franchise’s lost team member, Paul Walker, who died in November 2013.
The semester coming to an end can only mean that two things: more time to dedicate to drinking and binge watching shows on your borrowed Netflix account. If you loved “30 Rock” and haven’t found the time to watch Netflix’s breakout show, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” do yourself a favor and catch up on Tina Fey’s latest creation (don’t worry, she makes a special appearance, too). Aside from laughs, you’ll get a strong sense of female empowerment, as its catchy theme suggests.
“Mad Men” was truly designed for a drinking game. The end of an era began Sunday. Well, the end of an already-ended era of drinking during work, smoking at your desk, prohibitive glass ceilings and sleeping with your secretary after coming back from buying roses for your wife because you forgot your anniversary. Oh, what an era. The ultimate “Mad Men” drinking game would be to match each person, drink for drink, in the show. But then you’d be sure to die, so here’s a modified version.
Suit up! Despite its rather lackluster finale one year ago (still salty over that one), the television show “How I Met Your Mother” still holds a place very near and dear to my heart. “HIMYM” taught me the correct way to pick up someone at Midtown, it showed that “revertigo” is alive and well, and most importantly, a lower-back tattoo of a butterfly is not a good idea. So whether you’re watching from your couch or at your own version of MacLaren’s, get ready for a night that will be LEGEN — wait for it — DARY.
Amid news earlier this year of DreamWorks Animation having to cut about 500 employees due to low box office turnouts, the studio premiered its new animated feature “Home” on Friday in hopes of crawling out of its financial hole.
There’s still a chance to go back in time at the Hippodrome State Theatre’s Time Warp 80s/90s Night film series showing of “The Princess Bride.”
Seven years ago, television was graced with what many now consider the best TV series about a high school teacher turned meth cook of all time. Just in 2013, “Breaking Bad” series creator Vince Gilligan was here at UF with the Accent Speaker’s Bureau, where he answered questions about the show and his creative process.
