  • The Big C: Love It or Hate It?

    Well, I finally got around to watching ‘The Big C,’ that new Showtime series in which Laura Linney stars as Cathy Jamison, a high school teacher with stage four melanoma. She decides not to have treatment – because she really loves her hair, and her doc says it would only buy her a little time…

  • Have You Ever Drank Blood? My Family Did. Tru Blood, That Is

    Some time ago, the nice people who rep Tru Blood sent me a case of four bottles of the beverage pegged to the HBO show, ‘True Blood.’ I have to say, it’s a little disconcerting drinking something with “blood” in the title. Even though you KNOW it’s not real blood, there’s still that little inkling…

  • True Blood Recap: 9 Crimes – Why Was Russell Edgington at the Werewolf Bar?

    (Season 3, Episode 28) First of all, I sort of loved Sookie’s makeover goth look when she and Alcide went to the were-bar in tonight’s episode of ‘True Blood.’ Not that she should go with it all the time, but it’s kind of a nice change – like, for Halloween or something. I like the…

  • Do Kris Jenner and Scott Disick Hate Each Other? They Set the Record Straight! (VIDEO)

    Watching ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ is one of my guilty pleasures. I’ve even got my 13-year-old daughter hooked on it, which probably doesn’t say much for my parenting skills! I just think it’s fascinating to watch a Hollywood family go about their daily business with the cameras pointed at them. Yeah, I know a…

  • Sex, Lies and Secrets on ‘The Tudors’

    Oh, those randy royals! King Henry is ailing, and his teenage wife Catherine is friskily hooking up with young Thomas Culpepper. ‘The Tudors’ continues to heat up in season four. It’s NOT going to go well for several of the King’s minions and a certain queen. She’d better start producing some heirs — and soon…

  • ‘At The Movies’ Canceled; Roger Ebert to Produce New Show

    The classic film review show ‘At the Movies’ was just canceled, but Roger Ebert is already moving beyond that with another show. He and his wife Chaz will produce a new review-focused show called ‘Roger Ebert presents At the Movies.’ Details are still sketchy, but Ebert wrote on his blog that his famous thumbs up…

  • ‘MacGyver’ creator ticked over ‘MacGruber’ movie

    In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a ‘MacGruber’ movie in the works. What’s ‘MacGruber’? A ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit that riffs off uber-agent MacGyver, the subject of the 1980s TV series about a guy who uses his wits and ability to make bombs out of shoestring and duct tape. There’s already been some Pepsi commercials…

  • ‘Veronica Mars’ movie still not happening

    It’s never looked great for a “Veronica Mars” movie, and it’s still not looking good. Creator Rob Thomas was at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, as part of Starz’s promotion for the second season of “Party Down.” He told The Futon Critic that he’d write the script if anyone would finance it. “If…

  • ‘Southland’ season one hits DVD Jan. 26, 2010

    If you missed season one of “Southland,” now is your chance to get caught up on the gritty cop show that got a slow start, but is gaining steam. It was unceremoniously canceled by NBC last year (they’ve made some really great decisions lately, haven’t they?), and then picked up by TNT. Seems like a…
