According to what's being reported on the Internet, it's a done deal. The Fox network is cancelling Backstrom (starring the brilliant Rainn Wilson). To fans of the show, this is shattering news. Arguably, with its wicked blend of forensics and fraternal dark humor, it is (was) the best cop show on TV.
It seems I just recently reviewed Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast but I'm doing it again so soon because I simply couldn't resist his latest offering. A LIVE team-up of epic proportions in front of an audience at Caroline's in New York, featuring Gottfried and fellow comedian Lewis Black.
Montage of Heck may help viewers see beyond the Cobain myth. That myth, however, has had enormous staying power, and partly because it resonates within rock history.
Veteran producer Martin Folb, more famously known as MartyParty, has been traversing sonic landscapes on an endless quest to create what he calls "purple music." Hailing from South Africa, but finding a home in Miami, Florida, MartyParty has lived multiple lives, all of them working together in perfect symbiosis.
If you like horror movies, then you are going to love this one. It is smart, timely and well-acted. You will be drawn into its plot from the first frame of film, and will stay there until the last "fade to black."

There is nothing worse to watch than Alicia Florrick sobbing by herself in her apartment. All around, this episode was about how absurd and lonely life is. The show itself has come full circle, as Alicia has to give up her State's Attorney position in front of the press.
I'm also here to report someone asked Larry about whether his hit HBO series, Curb Your Enthusiasm, is coming back. It's probably the most asked question to Larry, other than, "Can I take a selfie with you?" Unfortunately, Larry doesn't do "selfies."
After watching Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel's most recent installment, I feel that it must be considered whether or not the Marvel model is sustainable. Now, before I go on, I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the movie while sitting in the theater and would recommend it to anyone.

I never watched soaps growing up, nor did my mom, not even while ironing. But, that changed when I was living and working in Manhattan. On a trip home, I came down with the flu, leaving me flat on my back in a sea of used tissues.
Snarky, cynical and jaded, especially when it comes to ex-girlfriends, their latest three-song EP Massive Nights is fun and masterfully danceable, with lyrics anyone who's been scorched by an ex will easily relate to, and probably turn up to full volume.
