'Girl Meets World' Review: Teen Show Gets To The Heart Of The (Subject) Matter

Denette Wilford | July 31, 2014 | Canada TV
There aren't many shows on Family that have made me cry. OK, I'm not made of stone so naturally I welled up at the end of "Good Luck Charlie" but I can't recall any other series or episode that got me all choked up. Until now.

Why It's Wrong to Condemn The Bachelorette's Nick

Dr. Peggy Drexler | July 31, 2014 | Entertainment
If a man in her same position wouldn't have been embarrassed by it, why should Dorfman? If we're going to argue that Dorfman has the right to sleep with whomever she wants without shame, we can't react as if Viall was wrong to call her out on it.

Why We Need to Talk About Doc McStuffins and Race

Jennifer Harvey | July 31, 2014 | Parents
We continue talk about white kids as if they are colorblind. We do this 1) as if this were true and 2) as if (if it were true) this were a good thing. Meanwhile, neither of these things is the case.

The Bachelorette: What Happens in the Fantasy Suite Stays in the Fantasy Suite?

Em & Lo | July 29, 2014 | Women
There's something disingenuous about using the "privacy card" when you've signed up to be on a reality show about love (and -- let's admit it -- sex). There's something disingenuous about having sex with a person whom you know is in love with you.

London Live Starts to Pull the Plug

Michael Rosenblum | July 29, 2014 | TV
The viewers have spoken. The reason no one wants to watch it is because although it is still 1982 for the producers at London Live, it is 2014 for the rest of London.

Tales of A Writer: My Conversation With Richard L. Kramer

Elan Barnehama | July 29, 2014 | Books
Sixty-something Kramer is not your typical first time novelist. During his senior year in college he sent a story to The New Yorker, using it as a resume to land a job writing for their Talk of the Town column.

The Last Great Book I Watched

David S. Simon | July 29, 2014 | Entertainment
Do not despair. We are not illiterate. Not yet, anyway. We've just changed the course of how we receive our ideas and language.

On 'The Bachelorette' Finale, We Learned That Sex Happens -- Even On Reality TV

Emma Gray | July 29, 2014 | Women
Andi -- or any woman, reality star or not -- has no obligation to marry every man she has sex with. And not wanting to commit her entire life to someone just because she slept with him does not make her a "cavalier" person.

Drag Race Star Alaska: Sharon Needles Breakup Still Leads to Awkward Moments

Pollo Del Mar | July 28, 2014 | San Francisco
Their relationship is more than six months in the past, Thunderfuck stated. Still, new viewers are continually introduced to the relationship as Seasons 4 and 5 live on in global reruns. This has led to some uncomfortable situations for the star.

What the TCA Win Means for RuPaul's Drag Race

Justin Hernandez | July 28, 2014 | TV
The TCA win for Outstanding Reality Series solidifies the fact that RuPaul's Drag Race is a key player in the reality TV genre. I believe this will put it in a new stratosphere and help it reach a larger audience, as well as gain more recognition from the television industry.

Pop culture visibility matters, and Misee Harris deserves to be part of it.

Devious Maid's Dania Ramirez On Her Humble Beginnings and Raising 7-Month-Old Twins

Caroline Presno | July 28, 2014 | Entertainment
Dania Ramirez easily recalls her humble beginnings in the Dominican Republic. Her parents came to the United States when she was six-months-old and left Ramirez in the care of her grandmother. Now Ramirez, who stars in Lifetime's Devious Maids, is the mother of seven-month-old twins.

Must-Watch Netflix Streaming: Knights of Sidonia

Jeff Sorensen | July 28, 2014 | Entertainment
It feels like a mix of Battlestar Galactica, Gundam Wing and even Game of Thrones. No main character is safe, and the enemy is terrifying to the highest degree of hyperbole.

Meghan Heffern of the CW's Backpackers is a Mickey Mouse Fan

Ilana Rapp | July 28, 2014 | Entertainment
Meghan Heffern has one of those faces that you see everywhere. That's because you have seen her everywhere! With over 30 film and TV credits, you'll recognize her from Degrassi: The Next Generation and a multitude of other well known projects.

Reckless Is the Summer Show You Should Be Watching

Jackie K. Cooper | July 25, 2014 | TV
Gigandet and Wood are great leads for a show such as this. He has that good ole southern boy thing down to a science, and she has the right hint of spunk and mystery to keep all eyes on her. Plus you have Hatosy playing a smirking bad boy, which is what he does best.

Pseudoscience: Great for Business... But Not Much Else!

Dr. Sten Odenwald | July 25, 2014 | Science
Whether it's the passionate religious fervor stoked by the Shroud of Turin or racist, anti-Native American revisionist history, these "controversies" will continue to exist and be maintained because they are a good business proposition.

Iconic Interview: Adina Porter on True Blood and The Newsroom

Andrew Fish | July 25, 2014 | TV
After several seasons sating her addictive drive with a hateful brand of religious fervor, she has succumbed to the lure of vampire blood, which she believes is linking her to Tara's tortured spirit.

Are You Satisfied?

Taylor Marsh | July 25, 2014 | TV
The quest for spiritual enlightenment is not high on the list of someone who's got no time to seek it. However, making sense of what is happening when things go wrong isn't optional when you hit a crisis point.

Remembering My Friend, Elaine Stritch

Kirk Douglas | July 24, 2014 | Celebrity
What impressed me most about Elaine Stritch, my friend, was how she handled the sad moments in her life. Now, I have to handle a sad moment alone -- Elaine is gone.

Why 24 Lived Another Day and Will Live Again

William Bradley | July 24, 2014 | Entertainment
Given that the show had seemed near played out when it ended its eight-season run four years ago, the question is why the longest-running espionage TV series in history seems still to have a lot of life left in it 13 years after it first ran.
