So, this is kind of awkward. While I just excitedly heard the news that the fifth and final season of “Friday Night Lights” will be starting on NBC on April 15, and am still drooling over this 30-second promo video, anyone who has DirecTV witnessed the show’s season finale last night. Now, I had told myself that I was going to read the episode summaries and reviews of the show’s final episode this morning and write something about it today. But I just can’t bring myself to do it and ruin the whole season for myself.

Kentucky man, Antoine Banks, found a creative new place to hide his illegal substances from police. After a routine traffic stop, cops found a bag of
saliva saliva and liquid codeine in his car, so they decided to give him a pat down. During the pat down, they found a bag of cocaine in the waistband of his boxers, so they ordered a strip search. Q: Can you guess where they found another small bag of crack? Keep reading »
I was a tad bit concerned when I heard that Will Smith was looking to do a remake of my favorite childhood musical, “Annie,” with his daughter Willow Smith whipping her hair as the iconic orphan. Willow is keeping quiet about the project and when recently asked about it on “Access Hollywood,” demurred, “You’re just going to have to wait.” But there is one detail she let slip. She said that her ideal Daddy Warbucks would be none other than … Brad Pitt. After all, he does have experience with adoption. Keep reading »
