Emmys 2014 Predictions: Winner Picks For This Year's Best Of TV

Chris Jancelewicz | August 22, 2014 | Canada TV
The Emmys aren't given much credence these days, and are often derided as the cheaper, less reliable cousin of the Golden Globes. But let's be honest here: if any awards show is going to represent the opinions of the mainstream TV audience, the Emmys are probably the ceremony to do it.

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles': 5 Reasons to Watch the New Cartoon, Not the Movie

Hulu.com | August 20, 2014 | Entertainment
As Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tops the box office for a second week in a row, we hate to say it, but a little part of our inner child dies. Between the 'roided out CGI turtles, the inevitable sexploitation of Megan Fox, and turtle lips (that should be enough right there), the new Turtles movie seemed poised to disappoint true fans from the get-go.

Josh Altman Is Back! Tonight on Bravo...

Shira Hirschman Weiss | August 20, 2014 | TV
While many have waxed philosophical "for the sake of 'sociological research'" about how reality shows are scripted, staged and fraught with retakes, Altman assures me that MDLLA is very real.

7 Reasons 'Rectify' Is My Favorite Underrated Show

Sasha Bronner | August 20, 2014 | Entertainment
Rectify is like the moody art-school sister of True Detective, the elegant, lyrical aunt of The Killing; the perfect combination of drama, suspense, doubt and dysfunction.

Mistakes Downton Abbey Did Not Make

Heather Deason Zynczak | August 19, 2014 | Women
My experience is that women sometimes are their own worst enemies. We are harder on ourselves than anyone around us. If you think you can't do it, you probably can't. Believe in yourself. You will succeed.

"Slobbering on the Coffin" - Oddball Interview With True Blood's Ginger, Tara Buck

Taylor Cole Miller | August 18, 2014 | Entertainment
Everyone who has seen Sunday's episode of True Blood "Love is to Die" knows that Ginger scored a major victory this week. The result was one of the series' greatest-ever, and certainly one of its funniest scenes.

Giuliana and Bill Rancic on Parenting, Romance and Their New Restaurant

Caroline Presno | August 15, 2014 | Entertainment
Giuliana and Bill Rancic aren't just any celebrity couple; they are a couple you want to root for. I talked with Giuliana and Bill on opening day of RPM Steak and had a down-to-earth Q&A with the affable couple about parenting, romance, and their coping strategies during the tough times.

Pretty Little Liars 510: "A Dark Ali"

Vanessa Berben | August 15, 2014 | Entertainment
The writers head in one direction and have you thinking you know exactly what you think you know, then BAM! something unexpected hits you out of nowhere. And that's what I love about this show. I love the answers, but I love the questions that come along with those answers.

On the Death of an Acquaintance

Madeline Wahl | August 15, 2014 | Women
I will never understand death. I will never know the intricacies of how it works. I don't know who will die next, and whether it will be someone who I'm close with or someone I barely know or have never met.

'How To Build A Better Boy' Review: A Tamer Version Of 'Weird Science'

Denette Wilford | August 13, 2014 | Canada TV
They don't make teenage comedies like they used to. That being said, "How to Build a Better Boy" is a movie coming out of the Disney Channel, so it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls."

VH1'S 'Hit The Floor' Actor Don Stark: Prolific Character Actor on Hard Work and Hollywood

Steve Karras | August 13, 2014 | Entertainment
Don Stark is most recognized as Bob Pinciotti, the quirky neighbor on the hit FOX sitcom That 70's Show. Stark currently plays Oscar Kinkaid on VH-1's hit Hit the Floor, now in its second season. Yet Stark's show personae couldn't be farther from his affable, real-life self.

Getting Israel/Palestine Right: Thank You, Sundance

Gary M. Burge | August 13, 2014 | Entertainment
Whenever Hollywood has tried to dramatize the Middle East, it has generally fallen for stereotypes. Rarely in these films do we gain a sympathetic understanding about the Middle East's culture. Rarely do we see its humanity or its nobility.

5 Lifesaving Things to Consider When Writing About the Death of Robin Williams

Liesel Reinhart | August 18, 2014 | Media
It is shockingly easy to unintentionally glorify suicide. Williams was a great talent, no doubt, but are we inadvertently communicating to others that they, as well, could find more love, comfort, and appreciation if they copied his act?

Farewell to Robin Williams: A Thank You Note

Lisa Jakub | August 12, 2014 | Celebrity
Even though I had not spoken with Robin in a very long time, I always assumed there would be some future opportunity to tell him that his letter changed my life. It taught me that you stand up for the things that matter. And even if your attempts fail, you tried. You told the truth. You took care of your friends. You fought back.

Being a mere mortal and not a mighty algorithm, my suggestions aren't as nuanced as Netflix's 76,897 genre categories, but I did my best to match common themes and tones to these wonderful shows that may be new to many viewers.

Carrie Preston Talks True Blood, Female Directors and Shooting Sex Scenes

Taylor Cole Miller | August 8, 2014 | Entertainment
Some know her as True Blood's sassy Southern ginger Arlene Bellefluer, while others fell in love with her as The Good Wife's deceptively ditzy Elsbeth Tascioni. But Carrie Preston also has her hands in directing and producing through her independent film company Daisy 3 Productions.

As I continue contemplating the dizzying number of shows that I previewed at both, I find that one of the few that I continue to think about on an ongoing basis and one of the very few that I cannot wait to see is Syfy's Ascension.
