I. told. you. so. Zach Galifianakis was SOLID GOLD as the host of “Saturday Night Live” last night, from the minute he walked on set during his opening monologue. The only thing to complain about — there wasn’t enough of him. While normally I’m happy to see hosts make minor appearances in plenty of the skits, Zach could have held his own against any of “SNL”‘s regular cast members. At least, that’s what he told me when we went on an imaginary date after the show. Keep reading »

We might love celebrity gossip and trashy reality TV, but we’re science, art, and history buffs, too. Some weekends, we even watch documentaries to enrich our knowledge and trivia reserves instead of putting on “Real Housewives” marathons. So if you’re anything like us, then you’re sure to enjoy quality programming from the Smithsonian Channel, including “Stories from the Vaults,” which lets viewers inside the museum’s private labs and get a glimpse of rarely-seen artifacts, and “Vampire Princess,” which examines the Count Dracula legend and offers another theory about a woman who may be the mother of all vampires that’s supported by scientific evidence. [$31.48, "Stories from the Vault"; $11.24, "Vampire Princess"]
Win This! We’re giving away a swag bag from the Smithsonian Channel that includes DVDs of “Stories from the Vaults” and “Vampire Princess,” a duffel bag, and a T-shirt, but you have to work if you want it! Leave a comment before 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, March 11, telling us about your most rewarding trivia experience. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner on Friday, March 12. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!
What better weekend to go to the movies is there than Oscar weekend, when magical films, which have allowed us to briefly escape our lives, are honored for their role in our sanity and entertainment? This week, you can follow Alice down the rabbit’s hole with “Alice in Wonderland,” feel like a badass with “Brooklyn’s Finest,” and, if you’re fortunate enough to live in a city that gets limited releases, you can catch “Twilight” darling Kristen Stewart in “The Yellow Kandkerchief” or “Gilmore Girl” Alexis Bledel in “The Good Guy.” Keep reading »
The Smithsonian Channel is focusing on determined lady conservationists this Women’s History Month during a new programming block called “Women in Science.” These female scientists have stepped out of their labs and into the wild in efforts to study and protect the creatures and environments they hold dear. The premiere episode, “Running with Wolves,” airs Sunday, March 7, at 8 p.m. and documents biologist Gudrun Pflueger who, after suffering a brain tumor, has dedicated her life to saving Canada’s wild wolves. As you can see from the preview above, these women take an extreme look at their subjects. Not only do they live in their environments, but they go as far as examining the animals’ droppings in a quest to learn more. The other episodes will air at 8 p.m. on March 13, 20, and 27.
