It was great to have Macy back in Chicago because, despite his illustrious career that has taken him to New York, Los Angeles and beyond, I think of Chicago as the city that launched him.

Michael Rohrer

Television characters have moved me to tears, made me LOL, frustrated me to the point of giving up on watching a show, outraged me for reasons I didn't even recognize at the time, and shocked me to the point of tears, frustration, and outrage at having to wait another week for answers.

Big and Beautiful Redhead Snares Hunk on 'Homeland,' Then Blows It

Taylor Marsh

Big and beautiful women play important roles in the sex life of the American experience. Their toughness to endure what our society throws in their direction forces them to either be resilient or get crushed under prejudice. Their womanhood isn't predicated on size, but on heart.

HBO Going Rogue Could Get Us To Net Neutrality

Richard Zombeck | Posted 12.23.2014 | Technology
Richard Zombeck

The average Joe doesn't have much of a voice these days in what lawmakers are deciding. We can't afford lobbyists to speak on our behalf. HBO, CBS, Showtime, Netflix, Amazon and the rest have more than enough money to lobby for Net Neutrality -- it ultimately affects their bottom line. As strange as this may seem, this could end up being a rare case of what passes for Capitalism in this country actually working for average people.

Untold (or Retold?) History: Oliver Stone's Showtime Series

Robert Orlando | Posted 11.17.2014 | Entertainment
Robert Orlando

Stone's confrontation with myth should be embraced, yet I don't think this simplistic Left vs. Right dichotomy, while making good drama, is helpful. Nor is limiting evil to capitalism, when the bloody saga of state Communism has been condemned prima facie by 20th century history.
