The mind behind Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine has accomplished something wonderful with NBC's new 30-minute comedy 'The Good Place.'

You can’t swear in The Good Place. In this heaven-but-not-quite-Heaven, each unapproved word or phrase has a friendlier alternative, like “bullshirt,” “motherforker” and “ash hole.” If you’re negative at all, the universe responds in kind, sometimes creating sinkholes, sometimes sending shrimp flying through the air. There is a frozen yogurt store on every block.

Review: Sundance entries make audiences laugh, cry, cringe and everything in between.

It may seem as if the Sundance film festival has been around forever, when in reality it has only been around since the 1980’s. Sundance's roots go back to 1981 when Robert Redford founded the institute, a non-profit organization that seeks to provide a space for new, fresh voices in the American film industry.

Another year is drawing to a close, and another season of TV is coming to an end. Here is a list of TV shows that should be binged-watched immediately.

As another year winds down, it’s time to reflect. What New Year’s resolutions did we stick to? How did we better ourselves? What amazing memories did we make?

But most importantly, what television came into our lives and made a difference?

A few new shows solidified their standings in my heart and made it to my list of the most binge-worthy TV of 2014.

True Detective

The red-bearded, long-haired, lumberjack-looking comedian stops by Destiny USA's Funny Bone comedy club tonight on a run through Upstate and Central New York cities.

Comedian Dan St. Germain, best known for his cultural critiquing on VH1's Best Week Ever and his appearances on the late-night talk show circuit, performs at Syracuse's Funny Bone club tonight at 7:30.

Review: The show's mid-season finale brings up a few more questions than it answers.

In the Gotham mid-season finale, "LoveCraft," was one major question to be pondered: "How did they know?"

The episode opened with three assassins descending on Wayne Manor. Dressed all in black, balancing flawlessly on a pair of several-inch heels, the lead assassin kills a gardener and worms her way in through the front door, claiming to be an injured victim of a car accident. Seconds later, she and her cronies blow their cover and lunge after Bruce and Cat. Alfred, a deceptively talented fighter, fends them off while the kids flee.

Review: The network show introduces a new character to, as he says, "clean up" Gotham, and longtime Batman are in for a surprise.

In Gotham's penultimate episode, everything finally seems to be coming together. Whether you're rooting for the heroic Detective Jim Gordon, anxiously awaiting the rise of the young Bruce Wayne or (like me) reveling in the evil and chaos sewn by the show's colorful villains, episode nine, "Harvey Dent," probably had you feeling pretty jazzed.

As the first season nears its ending point and as the Peguin's master plan is finally revealed, the writers amp up the comic-bookishness and pray it pays off.

It's official. Gotham has finally embraced its neo-noir silliness, just as Penguin has finally embraced his avian nickname. It's a new day in Gotham.

Well, not really.

The last two episodes of Gotham have picked up their pace and tightened some loose ends - but the city of Gotham has not yet changed. It's still a terrible place full of terrible people, both downright evil and willfully hamstrung.

Review: More than halfway through season one, Gotham is still hitting the mark -- kind of. When it works, it works, and when it doesn't, it really doesn't. Here's why. (Warning: Spoilers ahead.)

So far on Gotham, we've had a murderous balloon vigilante, a hobbling Penguin vigilante and a drug peddling anti-Big Pharma vigilante. In episode six, our vigilante came from a much more unexpected place: the doctor's office.
