To say "Freaks & Geeks" launched a lot of careers would be an understatement, but one only has to look at the talent in front and behind camera—Judd Apatow, Paul Feig, James Franco, Martin Starr, Linda Cardellini, Busy Phillips, Jason Segel and many more—to know it was a very special place to be at the time. Indeed, all the talent has cross-pollinated in other projects since, but two familiar faces haven't been seen together on screen since then: Seth Rogen and Lizzy Caplan. Granted, Caplan popped up in a single episode of "Undeclared," but it seems destiny didn't want them paired up again ... until now ...

We're sure the upcoming "Masters Of Sex" has the noblest of intentions, but we're also pretty sure the suits at Showtime were happy to have a program that will undoubtedly be a nudity fest (because, ratings), and have it all be in the name of telling the story. Putting the smuttier aspects aside, this 3-minute trailer for the upcoming show actually positions itself as a pretty intriguing looking drama about the intersection of love, sex and science.

This week sees the DVD and Blu-ray release of "Bachelorette" starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and Rebel Wilson. This raunchy, unflinching, darkly comic indie was written and directed by Leslye Headland ("Terriers") and follows three best friends (Caplan, Fisher, Dunst) who are invited to act as bridesmaids at the wedding of a girl (Wilson) they called “Pigface” in high school.

We love Lizzy Caplan, but then who doesn’t? It’s pretty hard not to. She was awesome in one of the best comedies of the last decade (“Mean Girls”), similarly awesome in one of the best sitcoms of the last decade (“Party Down”), and has continued to impress in interesting projects ever since. We’re looking forward to seeing her alongside another favorite of ours, Michael Sheen, in Showtime’s intriguing looking “Masters of Sex” later this year. But today we have an unexpected bonus dose of Caplan with the online short, “Fashion Film.”

Review: 'Save The Date' Is Light & Endearing Without Being Insubstantial; What Other Rom-Coms Should Aspire To Be

With the countless number of romantic comedies focused on how difficult it is for a woman to find a good man, it’s incredibly refreshing to see one where the tables are turned. In “Save The Date,” Lizzy Caplan stars as Sarah, a struggling illustrator who keeps herself afloat by managing a local bookstore. After dating her boyfriend Kevin (Geoffrey Arend) for two years, she has hesitantly agreed to move in with him to take their relationship to the next level. Kevin is the singer in a two-man indie band called Wolf Bird -- because all indie bands have Wolf in their name -- whose drummer Andrew (Martin Starr) is engaged to Sarah’s sister Beth (Alison Brie). Their first night as cohabitants looks like romantic bliss as the couple tenderly slow dances together, while Sarah warns that she will be a horrible roommate, messy and forgetful. Kevin is smitten anyway, and despite the warnings of friends that he may be moving too fast, he hatches a plan to propose to Sarah during the final Wolf Bird concert before he embarks on a nationwide tour. But his spur-of-the-moment gesture goes horribly awry and Sarah storms out, leaving the entire embarrassing incident captured on YouTube.

A comedy centered on two very different sisters, featuring a solid cast including Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie, Martin Starr, Mark Webber, Melonie Diaz, Geoffrey Arend and Timothy Busfield, the Sundance rom-com "Save the Date" has been rather quiet since it premiered in Utah earlier this year. But IFC Films, releasing the picture later this fall, is finally bringing their campaign to life. Directed by Michael Mohan ("One Too Many Mornings") the first trailer for the film has arrived and it quotes our review from Sundance where we described it as an "endearing" picture that "other rom-coms should aspire to be." And indeed, it does look charming while still containing some emotional depth and smarts.

Damn, the trailer for "3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom" looks strange. In a really good way. So how do we explain the madness therein? Let's go to the official synopsis which is brief: Frank Bartlett has been tortured, embarrassed and humiliated by his brother Bruce -- usually on film -- his entire life. Now that Bruce is finally off drugs and has turned his life around, things should be different. They are not.

As last year's smash hit "Bridesmaids" showed, girls can get just as rowdy as guys, and deliver big laughs and box office along the way. And while that film told the story of marriage and it's effect on friendship from the engagement right to the wedding day, it missed one key component of that whole arc. And that's where "Bachelorette" fits in.

While the first trailer for "Bachelorette" was amusing, it didn't seem to quite capture the spirit that has earned the girls-gone-bad comedy an R rating. But in case you wanted to know how foul things get, a new red band spot has dropped, and among the first things mentioned in the spot are blowjobs and cocaine. Getting our attention? Mission accomplished.
