Many returning shows outdid themselves this year.
This story of corporate greed will make you so angry that you'll demand justice be done. The show Mythbusters is doing the exact same experiments and using the same exact words as MY new science series, This vs That and their producers and Discovery Channel won't pay me.
The Big Bang Theory is getting up there in years, so it's not surprising that they finally reached the point where they had to resort to this plot device. And it's Christmas time, so It's a Wonderful Life was apt.
From a famously divided Congress that finally agreed on something (Sunny Obama is adorable!) to two international sporting events whose execution proved more entertaining than the actual sport, 2014 definitely did not disappoint us in terms of buzz-worthy events.
It's hard to believe that David O. Russell's first feature film was an incest comedy called Spanking the Monkey. Now, with his track record of critically-acclaimed dramedies, he has his pick of Hollywood's A-list talent, some of whom reached that level because of him.
April stands up for herself on her wedding day, "hunting" down her bridesmaids in her curlers, getting them tailored, shutting them up before curtain call. Owen tells her that everyone likes her, her dress is gorgeous, everything's going as planned and then Jackson has to stand up and tell her he loves her, right smack in the middle of it.
This week's playlist includes music by Percy Sledge, David Amram, George Jones, and more.
Five final shows to see before the holidays take over. They ranged from a marvelous breathing-to-life of a poem more than 200 years old, a so-so take on the Scottish play, a one-man homage to a master via August Wilson's biographical piece and two new works from talented writers.
More often than not, DJing is a solitary performance -- but the four members of Visionquest challenged that paradigm in 2013, staging an ambitious worldwide event series that saw them performing together live as a foursome of DJs.
Haley Orrantia, Troy Gentile, and Sean Giambrone make sibling rivalry look like an art form. A squabble between these three is a delightful symphony of chaos, and being a fly on the wall to their mayhem will leave you in a fit of giggles.
Nashville ambled along last night, stumbling through the lackluster loose ends of its midseason finale with with an insanely dull love triangle to water things down instead of spicing them up. And then, abruptly and unceremoniously, there was a suicide and a murder.
In the immortal words of Jay Z, you crazy for this one, Golden Globes!
For this midseason/holiday finale of American Horror Story: Coven, we've come full circle. While we've seen our share of messed-up mother/daughter relationships, tonight we got to see some father influence. It's an eye-popping good time.
I found 2013 to be a great year for discovery and experience in the arts, from theatre and music to television, film, and books. I have compiled a top 20 list of my favorites, with the hope that they might resonate with readers.
Do you know how hard it is to find a black girl with hair like yours? It was my first peek into the supposition that my hair does not belong to me but, rather, is part of some trenchant responsibility and deeply engaged in identity politics whether or not the body/mind attached to it desires such.
Schools are cutting their music programs in an attempt to save money. But wait. A crazy thing is happening. This next generation of students is filling the musical education void by just doing it themselves.
Being a straight, bi-racial, teenage girl growing up in Northern California I'm often told that I don't understand the racial struggle faced by African-Americans, or that because I'm a teenager, I don't know about the "real issues." But that doesn't mean I can't stand up for someone else's rights.
I wanted to show a glimpse into the funny, charming, down-to-earth Ali Mostafa that his friends know and love, behind all the glitz and glamour of his image. So I sat down with him inside the bustling Dubai Film Market and asked him a quick round of questions.
When I see two kids who are as obviously meant for each other as Frances Halladay and Llewyn Davis, I just have to speak up. Sure, there are obstacles to this relationship. But if any city could make it happen, New York is the place.
