'Suits' 1.11 'Rules of the Game' Review

September 1st, 2011 11:06pm EDT
Suits
Suits, you are a crafty little show. Last week, you showed me where your characters were heading; this week, you showed me where my favorite has been, and yanked pretty damn hard on my heartstrings besides. I didn't know I liked you this much until you punched me in the stomach. Ow.

Harvey - who makes one of the most awesome entrances in my recent memory in this episode - is reunited with his former boss, Cameron Dennis (the underrated Gary Cole). The chummy meeting reveals what was apparently a secret: that prior to joining Pearson Hardman, Harvey was a district attorney. When h...

With so many clichéd, typical and tedious ones running rampant, what then makes a really memorable movie boss? Could it be the stern voice, an authoritative command or maybe even that unbridled rage that goes along with the pressure of a high-ranking position? Well, in anticipation of the upcoming boss-from-hell dark comedy "Horrible Bosses" (in theaters July 8 from Warner Bros.) we’re going to take a look at some of the best movie bosses the cinema has to offer. Ranging from goofy to bitter and eccentric to sadomasochistic, we are proud to present our...Top Ten Memorable 'Movie Bosses'!...

'Chuck' 4.21 'Chuck Versus The Wedding Planner' Review

April 18th, 2011 11:57pm EDT
Chuck
I've got two words that come to mind with this week's Chuck: Gary Cole.

While he's a fine dramatic actor (I still miss Wanted and to a lesser extent, Crusade), Gary Cole is always going to be Bill Lumbergh from Office Space to me. He's got great comedic ability that makes everyone around him funnier, and his work as Sarah's con-artist father Jack Burton is no exception. I know much has been made of Linda Hamilton's casting as Chuck's mom this season, but I'd say Cole is just as good as Sarah's father. It was immensely fun to see Jack actually somewhat in charge of Team Bartowski thi...

15 'True Blood' Spoilers: Plus, Why Powerful Vampire Eric is 'Completely Lost'

Trying to get True Blood executive producer Alan Ball and the cast of the HBO series to give away anything about the upcoming fourth season is not easy. Oh, but how they love to tease! During Saturday's PaleyFest panel, we heard all about fairies, demon babies, amnesia (poor Eric!) and why — brace yourselves — Sookie and Bill are doomed for the time being.

Bill's not getting back into Sookie's, er, good graces any time soon. It's going to take a long while for her to get past Eric's...

'The Good Guys' 1.20 'Partners' Recap and Review

December 11th, 2010 5:40pm EST
The Good Guys
If this really does turn out to be the last episode of The Good Guys, the show went out with a bang.

Jack and Dan are having lunch at the cafe that apparently has the "best pancakes in Dallas." This puts them in prime position when a guy skips out on his check. Dan being Dan, he decides to go through the window rather than the door (breaking a $300 window to handle a $6.52 (plus tip) crime) in pursuit - a pursuit that's short-lived when a guy walks in front of Jack and collides with him, leaving him on the ground in pain. Unsurprisingly, Dan is unconcerned.

When they get back to t...

Supporting Superhero: A Look At The Stand-Out Film Roles Of Jason Bateman

July 1st, 2008 10:11am EDT
Jason Bateman
In the early part of his career, Jason Bateman was known as the cute sandy haired boy from the wholesome TV family. Beginning with Little House on the Prairie and taking it through "Silver Spoons" (where as the best friend he became part of the extended family) and "Valerie," he wore that role like it was his own skin. Only as he aged (like with 2001's "Some Of My Best Friends" and later with the critically acclaimed "Arrested Development") did he start to include sarcasm into his portrayals, opening up a world of possibilities for him to steal scenes in a number of feature films.

After reading this you can impress your friends! Win the movie game (the one where you name an actor, someone names a film he or she was in, next player names another actor in that film, etc....

We Can't Wait For New Episodes Of. . .

March 6th, 2008 11:49am EST
Supernatural
For three months we labored through a very dry TV landscape full of reruns and retro-nostalgic reality shows, but it's true what they say. Time, or in this case, the strike, does make the heart grow fonder. We're giddy with anticipation for our favorite shows to come back with new episodes. Here's a peek at what has so excited for spring and why.

Last we saw of Gossip Girl, things had changed quite dramatically for many of the characters. Nate and Blair broke up after the truth about Chuck and Blair came out. Serena and Dan exchanged "I love yous." And perhaps most importantly, Jenny H...
