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

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

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.

Fans of Twin Peaks -- a group in which I have never counted myself -- are rejoicing after it was announced just days ago that the series would return for a 9-episode run on Showtime. Filming is slated to begin in 2015, with a mid-2016 air date.

It has been years since the opening weeks of a new television season truly "belonged" to broadcast -- but it seems that this year, in particular, the "other guys" have been coming on especially strong, with big news, bold moves and some of the most exciting new shows of 2014.

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.

Phu Nguyen

I like to watch TV. Okay, maybe I love to watch TV. Either way, you get it. I'm 'addicted' to many shows, and I admit that a time or two, I have opted to stay in and watch a show over going out for human contact. What I don't like is to be judged for it.

Streaming: TV's Tectonic Shift

Tom Alderman | Posted 10.27.2014 | Entertainment
Tom Alderman

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.

We're not looking to have an elaborate wedding. Likely we'll show up, just the two of us, at a courthouse some 300 miles away. Imagine, my dear heterosexual friends, if this were you. I'm just going to guess you'd be a bit irritated.
