I’d like to talk about the injustice of this world. The preview for “Friday Night Lights
” season five, is out and, as expected, it is gorgeously shot and the show’s stars all look stunning—from Tammy Taylor to my new fave character, Vince. But where is Tim Riggins?!?!? Please tell me that Taylor Kitsch
has not flown the coop for this season, like Minka Kelly
and Adrienne Palicki before him, because “FNL” without Tim is like the earth without sun. Also, does this really have to be the final season of the show? That just isn’t right. And the final thing that makes me scream “it’s not fair!”: DirecTV subscribers will get to watch the season starting on October 27 while the rest of us will have to wait until the spring. Sigh.

After the jump, I’ll you all about mysteriously appearing dimes, ghostly pranks, and the one thing that’s haunted me forever. Keep reading »
The recipe for this week’s jams is half crazy hip-hop and half fuzzy pop fun, with a splash of ballads thrown in for seasoning. Mmm, delicious! So get those headphones on, girl, because we’ve got Guster, Fistful of Mercy, Pimp C, Faith Evans, Flockaveli, Alain Johannes, and Clinic after the jump! Keep reading »
I watched re-runs on CBS, I owned the underoos, and I had a fake phone booth in my bedroom where I impersonated voices. That’s why I was beyond nostalgic to hear that David E. Kelly (of “Ally McBeal” fame) is working on a television version of “Wonder Woman” for Warner Bros. It’s crucial that he finds the right actress to play Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. Lynda Carter is a tough act to follow. I mean, she looked so good in those huge glasses. [NYMag.com
After the jump, our casting suggestions for the new Wonder Woman. Keep reading »
Sure, this video may look like just any other weather forecast but you are oh-so-wrong. This strange-as-crap weather forecast devolves into an anti-poverty PSA with dramatic music and nonsensical non sequiturs. Good message, horrible, horrible delivery. [YouTube

It’s been four months, but I’m still ranting about the monstrosity that was “Sex and the City 2.” Who knew it was possible for Carrie Bradshaw to become any more vile and self-absorbed than she already was? I didn’t anticipate that I would come to loathe Samantha for behaving like a fanny pack-less ugly American or that I would actually sincerely walk out of the theater thinking, Miranda is the only one of those hens that I don’t want to tar, feather, and then deep fry. Never mind the fact that I actively rooted for Big to drop Carrie like a hot potato, I didn’t even feel a tingle in my nether regions when Aidan appeared on screen. This was “Sex and the City” — where was the sex?! Where was the city?! I hated every second I spent in the theater torturing my eyes with that hot mess of a motion picture.
Still, despite all of these complaints and Chris Noth’s passing-the-buck claim that fan and critical reaction has killed any chance of a third film, I can think of five very good reasons to make “Sex and the City 3.” Keep reading »
No, you are not on “Candid Camera.” But it appears that MTV’s “Punk’d” is in fact coming back. Sources say the “classic” series is getting a reboot. And while Ashton Kutcher will be returning as executive producer, he is rumored to be handing the hosting reins to … Justin Bieber. Yes, that was the sound of every tweenage girl on the planet squealing in unison.
