Last night's season finale of "Homeland" was at once less suspenseful, more elegiac and more heart-rendingly emotional than we were expecting it to be, and left very few of its main characters still in the running.
"Bass Player Wanted" opened what I'm hoping will be a door to a different kind of final season, focused on the mother, the gang and the big stuff. It was the last episode of 2013, the midseason finale, and it was lovely.
Kenneth Cole was on Chelsea Lately and rewrote history by erasing the role of the LGBT community in the early days of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The problem was that too few others were listening -- not that we weren't speaking up.
I hate to break this to ya Megyn, because clearly your love of the Kringlemeister runs deep, but Santa Claus is not real. He's a figment of our imagination and fantasy. Therefore, he can be whatever the heck we want him to be. Even a penguin.
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.
Many returning shows outdid themselves this year.
It goes without saying that gays have become more and more accepted in our culture, making gains in the workplace, Hollywood, and in legislation, but has that acceptance come at a price?
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.
It was a good year for the weirdos.
It's been almost five years since I first appeared as a dater on Bravo's The Millionaire Matchmaker, squeamishly sitting through a date while an egotistical millionaire berated me for choosing the steak as my dinner choice. But after that episode aired, something very special happened to me.
"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.
I liked this episode! Mostly because we got to see one of the MX androids totally naked. (I asked for this in, like, my first recap.)
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.
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.
Some business leaders inspire our work. But some unique individuals inspire our vocation.
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.
I was ignorant. Stubbornly ignorant. But I always am. And that is my secret to my success. (I should note here that by 'success' I mean working on cable television. Basic cable. On a show that gets a noticeable ratings bump when we stunt-cast a wrestler.)
Christian shares what it's like for him to be a straight actor who is a gay icon and how that has impacted his career. He also discusses why it's easier today for straight actors to play gay roles in movies and television.
