DC on the TV: Why We Love Shows About the Nation's Capitol

Andrew DeYoung | April 18, 2014 | TV
The DC show is clearly experiencing something of a moment right now, occupying the same position of cultural prominence as, say, the lawyer show did in the late '90s. But what does the DC-based show's dominance mean?

'Devious Maids' Review: Season 2 Gets Downright Funny

Denette Wilford | April 18, 2014 | Canada TV
Wait, what? I know, you expected me to say 'Devious Maids' gets dirty in Season 2, what with all the mopping up the titular characters have to do. But if you thought Season 1 of 'Devious Maids' was funny, the laughs in the Season 2 premiere alone will have you wanting more.

Mark R. Kennedy | April 18, 2014 | Politics
There are reports that a reality show starring "D.C. up-and-comers" is in the works. If you wanted to attach an anchor to your career in politics, my advice to you would be to sign up.

Karen Fratti | April 17, 2014 | Entertainment
I mentioned last week that I feel some nostalgia for "Grey's" of yore, and even one of you mentioned some "throwback" moments in the comments. This episode was full of them.

10 Life Lessons We've Learned From Scandal

Mark Brennan Rosenberg | April 17, 2014 | Entertainment
Because Scandal is so much like real life, there are some very important life lessons to take away from it each week, because after all, which one of us can't say we haven't been a part of an international cover-up that seemingly resolves itself in 44 minutes or less? No one, my point exactly.

Mellie Grant Is The Unsung Antihero Of 'Scandal'

Emma Gray | April 17, 2014 | Women
Mellie may not be a "good" person, but she's a fascinating, hooch and whiskey-guzzling, political badass. The beauty of watching a TV antihero is that while you may not like the fictional first lady, you've probably found yourself cheering her on.

I have a friend that suffers from something that I used to have. I call it "Ex-itis." And even after five long years it won't let her go.

Attention Game of Thrones Fans: Get Real

David Macaray | April 15, 2014 | Entertainment
Thank you, HBO, ye have done well. Game of Thrones more or less makes up for Veep and Carnivale. But the best show in the history of television? Impossible.

Spend '700 Sundays' With Billy Crystal -- Seriously!

Pat Gallagher | April 15, 2014 | Fifty
Comedian Billy Crystal was apparently born funny. Baby boy Crystal's naked body was barely out of his mother's womb on Sunday, March 17, 1948 when the little guy noticed things weren't going to go his way.

My Experiences and Goals as a Science Advisor for Breaking Bad

Donna Nelson | April 14, 2014 | Science
Throughout all seasons of Breaking Bad, the science was strong; at times it seemed as if science was a separate character, such as the scene in which Walter and Jesse use thermite to break into the chemical storage building to obtain methylamine.

ASL Goes Viral

Lydia L. Callis | April 14, 2014 | Impact
How do deaf people enjoy music? Vibrations, beats, lights, interpreted lyrics and awesome dance moves. It is inspiring to see mainstream media outlets exploring all-access entertainment, even if it's happening slowly.

RuPaul's Drag Race and the Danger of Overpolicing Language

Our Lady J | April 14, 2014 | Gay Voices
Drag is punk and should never be subjected to politically correct ideals. The moment it stops provoking is the moment it fails as an art form. Trans people are forever indebted to drag for the mainstream explosion of gender as we see it today.

Media Minority

Camryn Garrett | April 13, 2014 | Teen
When a magazine calls a woman with pale eyes and hair beautiful, I don't have any problem agreeing. They are beautiful. We all are. But what many magazines fail to realize is that there's more than one brand of beauty.
