I have spent the past week sitting Shiva for Bea Arthur, and I think it's finally time I quit mourning the loss of her life and instead, celebrate it, which I will begin to do right here. I first met Bea as a child, in the late 1980's on the prime-time hit The Golden Girls.... Continue Reading →
My brother's coming into town this weekend- BIG PLANS A BREWIN'. We've had this trip planned for about four months now, all centering on the debut of X-Men Origins: Wolverine tomorrow night. I know, I know. You're just all a-giggle over my geek joy. Well, it just gets better. Because what better way to celebrate... Continue Reading →

If you want to know the plot, check out the plot of... Continue Reading →

Why NBC, you've done it again! I had lost all hope in you when your Thursday night lineup slummed to Joey, Will & Grace, The Apprentice and ER. It was like, just because Friends and Seinfeld had played out, you didn't have to give up completely, but you did. I believe it was your shit Thursday that singlehandedly took your...
