Last week, we saw some of our favorite contestants from the auditions rise and...
Read. Think. Repeat.
Up until now, Paul Becker has been known as a dancer and choreographer; protégé to Kenny Ortega, who worked closely with the likes of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Cher, and Elton John. But Becker’s credits are impressive in their own right, ranging from films like Twilight, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and Disney’s The Descendants; in […]
As the episode opens with our hero narrating, Barry talks about the nature of running and how it plays out in his life: running to avoid things. While he is running Harry and Cisco are irritating each other in the lab with Harry being demanding about what Barry needs to do and Cisco just poking his buttons.
Last night’s episode can be somewhat divided into two sections: First, there is the J’onn plot section and second, the Cat plot section. The episode flows as a woven tapestry, but it makes more sense to explain what happens based on the specific characters since there is very little overlap this time.
Is there anything scarier to a guy than the birth of their first child? Most men who have been there will tell you point blank that it’s nothing like they’ve ever experienced. And while that’s true, that moment after you first hear your child cry makes it really easy to overlook perhaps the scariest thing of […]
As one of the longest-running science fiction series in network television history, The X-Files is back this Sunday after nearly 13 years with a six-episode run. Returning are its two dynamic leads, Special Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) diving back into unsolved cases the FBI deems false or outlandish. Built upon the premise of alien cover-ups, […]
Another chapter has closed in the final book of the American Idol series. Or should I say the “farewell” book? During the Television Critic’s Association Press Tour last Friday, Seacrest, Lopez and Urban all corrected themselves after calling the show’s 15th season it’s “final” season. Whether that means the show will return down the road […]
Nothing has changed entertainment more than technology. Twenty-five years ago, we were watching television shows on cable and movies on VHS. Now thanks to the internet, we’re using streaming services, YouTube, torrents, and social media to be entertained in a variety of ways. Consumers and creators have the world at their fingertips, and though many […]
Last night’s episode opens with Barry and Patty happy. They are having a beautiful date (with the exception of some roses that caught fire due to Barry using his speed to get to the date). The happy couple laughs that off and settles into a nice evening when Zoom shows up, snatches Patty, and then throws her off a roof while Barry watches in horror.
We start our episode with Kara getting a flying lesson from Henshaw. As we all now know, Henshaw is really J’onn J’onnz, Martian Manhunter. Anyway, Henshaw is giving Kara a flying lesson and it’s pretty awesome. Martian Manhunter is fantastic as a character, but they really get him right on the show. It’s just so wonderful visually.
Baby, it’s cold outside! Even though you probably want to hibernate in your warm bed this winter and wear your Snuggie forever, that’s not something you can actually do—sorry! Winter weather can make getting up out of bed the least desirable thing to do, not to mention making exercise our Mount Everest. Though working out in […]
Panic! at the Disco has undergone some major changes since the Vegas-based group’s formation in 2004, but with Brendon Urie as the only remaining original member at the helm, the band is in capable hands. The band’s latest effort, entitled Death of a Bachelor released January 15th and may signify yet another change in the band’s sound—following […]
The second week of Idol auditions seemed to repeat the first, giving us plenty to think about after Thursday’s two-hour special, but leaving us a little high and dry after Wednesday’s one hour offering. Perhaps this arrangement was deliberate, leaving the audience wanting more for next week rather than ending on a bad note. Either […]
The start of each new year brings us something new, some new obsession that will appear out of nowhere and then takeover all conversation for what seems like a never-ending amount of time. This is especially true for food — the past few years it’s been kale, quinoa, acai, etc that have taken over the […]
With most of the talk surrounding food in January being of the healthy, lifestyle-changing, and lets-eat-all-the-greens-type, foods that actually come into season now tend to get shoved into the backseat. Perhaps after so many months in a row of focusing on very seasonal flavors (pumpkin! peppermint!) we’re all a little burnt out? Whatever the reason […]
Most people know David Bowie for his genre-bending music and pushing gender and sexuality boundaries to their absolute limits—but he was more. Like his versatile, chameleonic persona, Bowie transformed the world of art, fashion, and even finance just as much as he changed the face of music forever. In honor of the legendary artist who […]
