While some "Supernatural" finales have been full of non-stop stress and heartbreak, a large portion of "Sacrifice" was a calm, well-plotted affair, deftly written but light on tension. Then all hell broke loose.
It's been well documented that the current 12th season of American Idol has come up Joba Chamberlain-trampoline lame. The one-time juggernaut is repeatedly getting slammed...
In 1926, F. Scott Fitzgerald and his family were in France, spending most of their time on the Riviera where Baz Luhrmann's movie of The Great Gatsby will open the Cannes Film Festival tonight.
To crack this case, we have to go all the way back to late January of this year, when SuperStorm Beyonce once again made devastating landfall on the coastlines of our collective consciousness.
With Glee season four now complete, I decided to compile a list of what I believe needs to improve in the show's future. While the show is far from unwatchable, it is undeniably past its prime.
I'm a 57-year-old guy where living on the edge is having a second beer. I haven't been to a concert in decades. And yet... Last...
Folks at the ACLU should remember the gales of ridicule that met Dan Quayle when he criticized a plot point on "Murphy Brown." He was talking about a serious issue. But singling out the decisions of a sitcom character made the conversation seem slightly absurd.
Everything you're seeing in upcoming films like Day After Earth is not far off from our new future. In the first Fitness Tech episode, I tried out the miCoach Supernova Glide Bra by Adidas with heart monitoring capabilities.
When I wrote the script for the sixth episode of "EastSiders" I knew that we might be inviting controversy. Many otherwise liberal friends and collaborators asked me if I was certain I wanted to take Constance Wu's character Kathy "in this direction."
Jarod Joseph is quite the man! Born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Jarod is a spaghetti-eating sports-loving guy who has the capability of transforming himself into believable characters.
The J.J. Abrams Kirk is the Kirk of parody: Kirk the womanizer, Kirk the rule-flouting powder keg, Kirk the prideful egomaniac. Kirk the caricature. It works in a broad sense because that's the idea of Kirk that people who've never actually seen Star Trek have imprinted in their minds.
The conventional wisdom about the Star Trek movies starring the cast of the original TV show was that the even-numbered films were the good ones...
The process is grueling, exhausting, insulting, exciting and demeaning. It is ridiculously imperfect (as every fall season proves). It is a kind of hell week, only it lasts a year. So why would otherwise sane people (well, most of them, anyway) subject themselves to this?
Another entertaining Mad Men episode brought the immediate aftermath of the precipitous merger between Don Draper's and Ted Chaough's rival agencies. This was a transitional episode, which nonetheless ended in tears, with the sudden assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy.
I am so glad I flew out here to experience Eurovision live. The people, the facilities, the energy -- it's so much more than just the three shows. The people working here are charged up. And the acts from each country are having the time of their life.
It was 1983 and my first film as a producer just lost $80,000 on its opening weekend after roughly zero tickets were sold. I had thrown away my legal career and had no idea how I'd make my way in the film business, but luckily I had my first-ever computer from Apple.
It was such a treat to interview Nicole Munoz about her work as Christie McCawley on SyFy's Defiance and as Hermila in Netflix's edgy and dark series Hemlock Grove, executive produced by Eli Roth.
After two dodgy seasons, "Supernatural" has recaptured a good deal of its mojo, and its mythology has been expanded in a number of tantalizing ways.
The release of the book has allowed, in an easy way, the opportunity for me, and fans the world over, to say thank you to those five VJs. For we, the pop culture inclined, they changed everything.
It's about time Bill Maher responded to Wayne Brady. Not because he owes Brady any sort of explanation or apology for his previous jokes about Brady supposedly lacking black male fortitude. Maher needs to respond because he has never been reticent to respond to the likes of a Donald Trump or Sarah Palin.
