"Parks and Recreation" fans flocked to our recap of the show's Paleyfest panel, making it one of the most read stories of the year. Elsewhere on the site, our annual Cannes Wish List was a reader favorite this week, as was a post by a Christian critic who urged fellow Christians to embrace films like "Nymphomaniac" and "The Wolf of Wall Street." Read these stories and more below:

4. A Christian Critic Defends 'Wolf' and 'Nymphomaniac': 'These movies tell the truth'

With the release of the classic bible-story film "Noah" next week, Christians are gearing up to head to the theater. Between the close scrutiny the film has already received and the debates as to how much it aligns with the Bible, religious audiences are eager to weigh in on how much truth is here, and just how much accolade the epic merits.

9. Watch: Martin Freeman Tries Out His Minnesota Accent In The First Trailer for FX's 'Fargo'
