It's the film's inclusion of both a male sex worker character and a young child that's making some uncomfortable, although Blane is quick to point out that there is no remote connection between the two in terms of sexual situations or scenes.
I love The Mindy Project -- the characters, the writing, the performances. I love this show so much, in fact, that my friends have started calling me Bindy (AKA "Boy Mindy").
There's an entire genre -- Vulture calls it British Women Getting It Done -- where women take matters into their own hands to solve crimes, save lives and sometimes, God forbid, knock a few strands of hair out of place. These ladies aren't your mother's Miss Marple.
B.A.F.T.A. (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) held their high pre-Emmy tea Saturday afternoon at the luxurious SLS hotel. This industry party continues its solid draw as a talent magnet, with many notables of the red carpet and at the exclusive party beyond.
Why should we pay cable companies big monthly fees for a huge lineup of programs we never watch but are charged for. Research shows that folks with 300 channels only watch an average of 12 of them. Why not pick and choose just what we want to watch and pay for each show as we go? Or, as the industry calls it: pay-per-view.
Over the past 15 years as an independent author, I have learned a few things. Some might disagree with my conclusions, but not to worry. I am used to being pummeled, rejected and contradicted. I have been around a long time, and I am still standing.
I am not sure how healthy this is to admit, but the truth is Netflix has become my new obsession. I hide my addiction like a prison boyfriend but I can easily binge on a whole season of Damages in two days. When you ask me to do something on the weekend you are really competing with Netflix.
If you like drug movies and avoided this cheese-tastic James Woods-Sean Young movie from the 80s -- well, I don't blame you. When it came out, it looked terrible. And what's more, it is sort of terrible.
1. I wonder how many tunnels for illegal trade and immigration have been dug between Mexico and the United States. 2. To work my way through college...
I'm only 29 but I'm starting to feel my age with teenagers running around looking like it's the 80's again.
Just when I get done binge-watching one great series on Netflix, Netflix has to go ahead and release another season of a show that I have to watch. Netflix just released the last season of The Killing and I have to say, it has a better home on Netflix than on AMC.
'Detectives Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder are deeply affected by the murders they investigate in this dark, acclaimed series,' or so says Netflix, in its description of the show it acquired from AMC.
The Sarah Palin Channel, which debuts is modestly priced at $9.99 a month. That's either an amazing deal (think of all of the unedited video clips that are bound to be released at some point from some spy-intern over at MSNBC), or completely overpriced.
It feels like a mix of Battlestar Galactica, Gundam Wing and even Game of Thrones. No main character is safe, and the enemy is terrifying to the highest degree of hyperbole.
Barbara Rosenblat's storied career includes time served on Broadway and more film and television roles than you could throw a pie at. But you probably know her best as Orange is the New Black's Miss Rosa, the husky-voiced, curmudgeonly, terminal cancer patient.
