BH90210 pulls out all the over-the-top stops for its possible finale

BH90210 pulls out all the over-the-top stops for its possible finale
TV ReviewsAll of our TV reviews in one convenient place.  

In a TV landscape awash in returns and reboots, we have to give BH90210 credit for meta-ing up the place. Instead of a draggy, 30-years-later plot showing the travails of the David and Donna Silver marriage and Brandon taking over Nat’s role at the Peach Pit, we only see those possibilities via dream sequences and fictional TV...

Dermot Mulroney will hunt Hanna in season 2

Former rom-com staple Dermot Mulroney has been tearing it up lately on various streaming series: re-teaming with his former My Best Friend’s Wedding co-star Julia Roberts on Amazon’s Homecoming, playing Lucille’s favorite Dusty on Netflix’s new seasons of Arrested Development, or swooping in as a dashing Texas oil tycoon on Hulu’s Four Weddings And A Funeral .

Welcome the dawn of Van Weezer with new single “The End Of The Game”

Welcome the dawn of Van Weezer with new single “The End Of The Game”

If you’ve been a bit fed-up with Weezer’s recent attachment to soft-rock covers and beach-inspired music (guilty), today is chock-full of excellent news. Not only is the band announcing a tour with Green Day (yay) and Fall Out Boy (eh), but Weezer just released its first new single, and for those who prefer their Weezer less mellow, more rocking, it’s the band’s best song in years....

Folk rockers Saintseneca pay tribute to Chris Farley with new song “In A Van”

Folk rockers Saintseneca pay tribute to Chris Farley with new song “In A Van”

One of the most resonant characters created by Saturday Night Live’ s Chris Farley was motivational speaker Matt Foley, famously debuted in a 1993 SNL skit. In a too-tight plaid jacket, Foley/Farley enthusiastically cautions pot-smoking teens David Spade and Christina Applegate that they were bound to wind up in a “van down by the river” (just like Foley himself).

Although Farley died in...

How Friends’ Ursula exemplifies “evil twin syndrome”

How Friends’ Ursula exemplifies “evil twin syndrome”

The good twin/bad twin is a trope that goes back to works like The Man In The Iron Mask and Charlie Chaplin’s The Great Dictator. It’s also been utilized in myriad TV shows before like Gilligan’s Island, I Dream Of Jeannie, Bewitched, and Bonanza. For Friends’ Ursula and Phoebe, the twin plot was a bit more practical: Actor Lisa Kudrow had already appeared on NBC sitcom Mad About...

Anti-procrastination app will delete your brilliant novel if you stop typing for 5 minutes

Anti-procrastination app will delete your brilliant novel if you stop typing for 5 minutes

Lord knows many writers have a procrastination problem, basically because some of us have the attention span of the average gnat. We’ll start writing something with the best, focused intentions, then decide to double-check something. Which will then make us think of something we should check on IMDB or Twitter. Which will then lead us to Twitter, where all bets are off. So, for all our “going...

Read this: Why Friends is probably the only show safe from a reboot

2019 marks the 25th anniversary of seminal sitcom Friends, and the resulting avalanche of commemoration pieces will either fill you with glee as a former fan or make you gnash your teeth as a current hater . Given the current penchant for classic sitcom reboots—especially from NBC alums like Will & Grace and Mad About You —and the anticipation that arises every time one of the original six...

Some Beatles fans got together to recreate an iconic 1964 photo of them taken by Ringo Starr

Some Beatles fans got together to recreate an iconic 1964 photo of them taken by Ringo Starr

Honestly, if The Beatles were headed your way in 1964, wouldn’t you have skipped school in a second? It’s not surprising that a bunch of teens ditched class to greet the Fab Four during their first trip to the States, but the memorable trip for this particular bunch was immortalized by drummer Ringo Starr, who took their picture as they leaned out to get a better look at the band. Says this

The Goonies cast is still holding out hope for a sequel

The Goonies cast is still holding out hope for a sequel

The 1985 adventure movie The Goonies holds a special place in the heart of many ’80s kids. It’s kind of a Stranger Things before there was a Stranger Things, as dorky pals like Mikey, Stef, Mouth, Data, and Chunk et al. discover a treasure map that leads them to secret caves, treacherous traps, and some creepy looking pirates. Leads Sean Astin (Mikey), Corey Feldman (Mouth), and Ke Huy Quan...

The women are by far the most interesting characters on The Affair

The women are by far the most interesting characters on The Affair
TV ReviewsAll of our TV reviews in one convenient place.  

If we can throw some shade at The Affair’s four-plus seasons (oh, and I think we can), the show’s main flaw is that it has focused much too much on the longings, desires, and shortcomings of one Noah Solloway. No offense to Dominic West, but it’s clear that the women in Noah’s life are far more interesting than he is. It looks like...

No longer ignored, Kirsten Dunst gets a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame

No longer ignored, Kirsten Dunst gets a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame

During a recent appearance on on SiriusXM’s In Depth With Larry Flick to promote her addictive new Showtime series On Becoming A God In Central Florida, Kirsten Dunst stated that despite being in the entertainment industry for the vast majority of her life, “I always feel like nobody—I don’t know, maybe they just think I’m the girl from Bring It On.” Granted, that is a great movie . But as...

Read this: A blistering argument for Friends' awfulness

Friends turns 25 this year, so get ready for a plethora of looks back and best-episode lists and retrospective articles examining the history of the hangout comedy. Like, say, this one , from the 20th anniversary. But not everyone harkens back to the days of Central Perk with inherent fondness—take BuzzFeed writer Scaachi Koul, who writes “Friends Hasn’t Aged Well,” and in fact “has always...

This 88-minute compilation of 2000s TV commercials is quite the journey

This 88-minute compilation of 2000s TV commercials is quite the journey

The 2000s weren’t that long ago, right? But this labor of love by YouTuber Jennifer Titus, which consists of an hour-and-a-half of TV commercials from the decade, transports us to what feels like an entirely different era. That is a lot of extreme flavor (like Fruit Loop cereal straws) and wannabe coolness (remember the Dell slacker guy?).

Depending on your formative years, these 88...

This debate over which Joker has the best laugh ignores the greatest one of all

This debate over which Joker has the best laugh ignores the greatest one of all

IGN probably wasn’t intending to stir any controversy with a new Twitter poll it dropped yesterday. After Joaquin Phoenix yet again delivered his unhinged laugh in the latest trailer for Todd Phillips’ Joker , they just thought it’d be fun to ask whose Joker laugh is the most iconic. The candidates included Phoenix, Health Ledger, Jack Nicholson, and Mark Hamill.

Let’s be clear: The answer...

Read This: Rich people mad that dogs at dog park not following “no excessive barking” signs

“Chevy Chase” is trending on Twitter today, leading many to check on the well-being of the SNL veteran/Caddyshack-Community star. But the phrase in this case actually refers to Chevy Chase, Maryland, where a dog park in a tony neighborhood has caused some local controversy, as reported in a terrific read by Washington Post writer Jessica Contrera.

As Contrera explains, “The drama began last...

Watch Sophie Turner and Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness squee over each other at the VMAs

You would think that when two celestial beings like Game Of Thrones’ Sophie Turner and Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness finally enter each others’ orbit, all that gorgeousness would just cancel itself out. The pop-culture gods who walk among us recognized each other instantly, resulting in some screaming and JVN (of course!) almost immediately bursting into tears. Seeing as he’s the host of the...

That Eva Longoria Flamin’ Hot Cheetos movie deal isn’t as weird as it sounds

That Eva Longoria Flamin’ Hot Cheetos movie deal isn’t as weird as it sounds

Granted, this Deadline headline yesterday sounded like an even more mangled version of Mad Libs: “Eva Longoria To Direct Cheetos Movie ‘Flamin’ Hot’ For Fox Searchlight & Franklin Entertainment.” A Cheetos movie? What was this, some sort of infomercial on the greatness of Flamin’ Hot, directed by the Desperate Housewives alum? Well, kind of, if we substitute “bio pic” for “infomercial.”...
