Know-it-all alpha dudes without a care in the world are great and all, but who doesn’t love that their neurotic sidekick just as much? TV and movies are full of lovable, mildly troubled neurotic souls who spend their days worrying, analyzing and questioning every event — and I have a major crush on them. The traits that make these guys so quirky also make them thoughtful and loving, right? Not all of them are the perfect boyfriend material I wish they were, as exhibited by their many failed onscreen relationships, but a girl can dream, can’t she? Here are 12 neurotic characters I’m totally into.

NBC’s “Law and Order: SVU” is going to take on Elevatorgate 2014. The show announced that an upcoming episode titled “American Disgrace,” will depict a fictionalized version of the Solange/Jay Z elevator brawl that happened earlier this year at the Met Gala. And if that’s not enough drama, the episode will also include pieces of the Ray Rice elevator scandal and Donald Sterling’s racist comments because WHY NOT STIR THE POT? Check out a clip from the episode after the jump! Keep reading »
Last night was the Season 3 premiere of “Nashville,” and, as usual, it had me at the edge of my bed, wine in hand and slack-jawed. The story lines just keep getting better and better, and, if possible, the stars’ musical performances are doing the same. From Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton to Lennon and Maisy Stella, the show’s actors also have some killer chops. If these 10 killer musical performances haven’t sold you on Season 3 yet, I don’t know what will. Keep reading »
Hey, everyone who just refuses to let the 1990s go, a Full House revival is once again in talks, but this time, it might actually happen! Original executive producers Jeff Franklin and Bob Boyett — as well as a number of original cast members — are all on board to mine your nostalgia for dollar signs.
But according to actor Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit, who played one of Uncle Jesse’s mutant twin children and was not invited to participate in the reunion, “As far as I know, the new show is not a [Full House reunion] … it will revolve around a few characters from the show though.” Adding even more fuel to this speculative fire is the fact that John Stamos, Dave Coulier, and Bob Saget have been making an unusual number of public appearances together. This seems to suggest that the new series will be about three old men living together in San Francisco, which is less of a sitcom and more of an excerpt from a census report. Read more on Cracked…
Sometimes in life, we meet a person who we instantly connect with on soul-to-soul level. For me, that person is Phoebe Buffay. Phoebe, played by Lisa Kudrow, was kind of the wildcard character on “Friends,” who embraced her idiosyncrasies and had no problem telling it like it was. For this, I love her. I’m fairly certain we were created from some of the same molecules or cells or something, and these 14 GIFs perfectly demonstrate why Phoebe Buffay/Regina Phalange/Princess Consuela Bananahammock is my kindred spirit.

“I love it! I would be totally open to it. My schedule is a little busy right now. But um … why not? I mean, so many people loved her. I loved her. Honestly, working on that show, I got so strong with my physical comedy and all the things that they would throw at me. I got covered in goo every week, and I got, like, smashed in the face with a locker every single week. And all this, I mean it was a really, really fun show. And obviously people really loved her. Maybe a “Lizzie: Where Are You Now?” like 10 years later.”
In the midst of promoting her lovely new album, Hilary Duff told the Huffington Post that she would be down for a “Lizzie” reunion, which makes me the happiest camper on the internet because I’m pretty sure the world would greatly benefit from seeing Lizzie, Gordo, Miranda and even Kate on the same screen again. What would Lizzie’s life be like in 2014? Would she be super famous from her accidental moment of Italian pop stardom? Would she be a normal American chick fumbling through her twenties while still clinging to the bubble shirts and bell bottoms of her middle school glory days? Do she and Gordo have a love child? Is Ethan a hair model? So many questions. A reunion full of answers would be what dreams are made of! See what I did there? Clever jokes, you guys. [HuffPost] [Image via AKM-GSI]
