Knowledge Is Power, For Real!

Back in 1999, Ben Stiller got together his pals Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Ron Silver (playing himself!) to make a failed pilot called “Heat Vision and Jack.” Black plays a renegade astronaut, whose catchphrase is “knowledge is power, for real” and Wilson plays his friend who was accidentally turned into his motorcycle. Ron Silver is the guy out to get both of them. It’s … terrible, but in a totally hilarious way, and I end up watching it at least once a year because it’s so ridiculous. Enjoy! [YouTube]

Have you been watching “The Voice”? The vocal talent show features judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine coaching singers in a vocal competition. The twist? The judges choose the people on their teams based on voice alone. The idea is that the blind auditions will help select singers who might otherwise be deemed conventionally attractive or saleable — with the hopes of finding an unexpected diamond in the rough.

It’s a great idea, yes. And in its first two seasons, the show has stuck to its mission fairly explicitly. But in season three? Ugh. There is a contestant that’s destroyed the core idea of “The Voice” — and managed to reinforce tired beliefs about conventionally attractive people.

Meet Dez Duron. He’s a former Yale football player and current Voice favorite. He’s also my least favorite contestant. Because he’s really, really attractive. Keep reading »

THE PEOPLE'S COURT!

There’s histrionics, and then there’s histrionics. And perhaps nobody knows that better than the announcer guy for “The People’s Court.” He’s turned witty voiceover-speak into a slightly sardonic, possibly passive aggressive and definitely psychotic artform. Just listen!

As y’all know (sorry, I’ll stop with the y’alls, I swear), I’m a hardcore fan of Connie Britton, so nothing was going to turn me off to her new show, “Nashville.” I also happen to be one of those California-raised Northeast transplants that fetishizes the South. I melt the moment Blake Shelton opens his mouth. I love to karaoke Tim McGraw’s “Something Like That.” Those accents are an instant panty dropper for me. I’ve never been anywhere in Texas besides their various airports, but I still like to say “Texas forever.” Don’t even get me started on Johnny, Dolly, Patsy, Waylon, and Merle, okay? You get the point. So a nighttime soap starring Connie Britton as a country star? Giddyup, I’m there. The great news is that “Nashville” is as good as the hype suggested, and features a complicated cast of characters and a multi-layered storyline that makes it so much more than “Smash” gone country. Let’s recap! Keep reading »

“There’s a lot of things people don’t know about Adam. He loves taking off his pants. Just takes them down all the time. Literally, he cannot keep his pants on. Like, we’ll be doing a scene and we’ll look down and Adam won’t have any pants on, and we’ll be like, ‘Adam! We’re in Senator Boxer’s office! Put your pants back on!’ And he’s like, ‘Oh.’”

A Visit To The Sucklord

Good day, and welcome to Terrible Young People Behaving Terribly. On this episode of “Gallery Girls,” we’re mainly concerned with the comings and goings and It-Girl-ing of one Angela Pham, resident photographer and Brooklynite. It seems that Angela insists on pursuing her dreams or something of becoming a photographer/It Girl, and it’s the eve of her first big show. “It has to be good or else I don’t know what will happen to my reputation,” she intones. Yes, because that’s what making art is all about. Your reputation. Keep reading »

“Downton Abbey” Left The Manor For The Olympics

The cast of “Downton Abbey” — both upstairs and downstairs — attended the Olympic Opening Ceremony last Friday. They posed for a group shot in front of the stadium, with Mr. Bates in something of a compromised position. But! Where’s the Dowager Countess? You know she wouldn’t dare mingle with the hoi polloi. And speaking of the Countess … the season three promotional cast shot is online, and it features some of the heralded new castmates and a foreboding dark sky (oooh symbolism!). Check it out after the jump!

– “Mad Men”‘s marvelous Jessica Paré, on her signature gap teeth. Jessica also dished a tiny bit about the future of her character Megan’s relationship with hubby Don Draper, noting that “we all know this is not a show about Don Draper being a happy, healthy man.” Uh oh. [New York]
