Fairytales are having a moment. There’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Mirror Mirror” making waves at the box office, and Grimm has a primetime spot on the small screen, but before any of them, there was “Brothers Grimm.” Directed by Monty Python’s own Terry Gilliam, the fantastical film document the even more fantastical adventures of Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm (Matt Damon and Heath Ledger, respectively). However, instead of mere chroniclers of stories, in Gilliam’s world, the Brothers Grimm are the most powerful and feared enemies of the armies of darkness. Or at least that’s what tell everyone, when in reality they are merely theatrical con men, who travel from town to town staging the very hauntings and possessions they then conveniently exorcise – for a very hefty fee. However when several young girls disappear from a small village the men are called into real action. And when it turns out that the kidnappings come courtesy of the Mirror Queen (Monica Bellucci), a witch who needs the girls’ blood to maintain her own beauty and immortality, well that’s a fairy tale come to life. “Brothers Grimm” airs tonight at 10:15 p.m. ET.

Need more reason to watch? Here you go:

1. Heath Ledger

Gone too soon, man. Gone too soon.

2. Terry Gilliam

The director cannot possibly make enough movies to sate our desire to watch his movies. Also, he was in Monty Python. What else do you need?

3. Matt Damon

Two words: 30 Rock.

4. Monica Bellucci

Have you seen her in “The Matrix Reloaded”? No? Fix that right now and you’ll know why you should watch absolutely anything she stars in:

5. Jonathan Pryce

A Gilliam regular he’s had roles in “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen” and, of course, “Brazil”

It’s been (Barenaked Ladies style) seven years since Comedy Bang! Bang! premiered on Southern California’s Indie 103 radio station as a music and variety show, then known as Comedy Death-Ray. And in those seven years, host Scott Aukerman has evolved the radio show into a podcast, a TV series, and a comedy mainstay for fans of surreal, offbeat humor. To celebrate the special occasion, Scott invited fan favorites Jason Mantzoukas, Horatio Sanz and Paul F. Tompkins, as well as a slew of popular characters and segments, to CB!B!’s 7th Anniversary Show.

Click here to listen to the 7th anniversary show on Earwolf. And just a reminder, Comedy Bang! Bang! returns to IFC for a fifth season on June 3rd with back-to-back episodes on Fridays at 11P ET/PT and 11:30P ET/PT.

That 70s Show Cast Reunion

Hangin' Out

That ’70s Show Reunion Photo Proves the Kids Are Still Alright

Catch That '70s Show Mondays & Tuesdays starting at 6P on IFC.

The stars of That ’70s Show had their own throwback reunion as Fez, Jackie, Kelso, Donna, and Hyde recently got back together for a candid on-set photo. Posted to Laura Prepon‘s Instagram account, actors Wilmer Valderrama, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, and Prepon posed on the set of Netflix’s The Ranch — which stars Kutcher and Masterson as brothers who manage their family ranch. Older and wiser but no less striking, the cast seems to have weathered the ’80s (and the ’00s) very well.

Keeping this from being a complete That ’70s Show reunion is Topher Grace’s absence, but this photo works as a reunion of the cast from the post-Eric final season. With The Ranch renewed for a second season, we could be seeing more ’70s reunion moments. Maybe Tommy Chong will stop by?
