'Homeland' Season 3 Episode 10: Someone Has To Die

December 3rd, 2013 6:25am EST
Homeland
Another powerful, action-packed episode of Homeland - 3.10 - which has really hit its stride, as well it needed to finally do, with only two further episodes left this season.

The mission with Brody trying to infiltrate Iran was outstanding in all kinds of ways, including who dies at the end of the episode, and Brody's interaction with the team, which includes some first-class military repartee between Brody and various personnel.

The scene back home in the U.S. was good too, with Saul standing up to pressures to forsake the team when things start turning bad.  I'm still not getting or li...

2013 Emmy Awards Predictions: Who Are The Favorites To Win?

2013 Emmy Awards Predictions
?

It’s been a while since we’ve had such a wild card Emmy season. Last year, Homeland was all but a lock in each of its major categories, but after a shaky second season, some strong competition from other long-running shows, and a buzzworthy new Netflix series, things are really up in the air pretty much all over the place. Still, I’ll do my best to make some predictions in the big categories. Just remember: This year, pretty much anything goes.

OUTSTANDING DRAMA
Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
Homeland
House of Cards
Mad Men

While I’d love to see Game of Thrones’ confident t...

Patrick Stewart Replaces Comedy Correspondent On 'The Daily Show'

Patrick Stewart
Thespian Patrick Stewart showed off his comedy skills on U.S. TV on Wednesday night by pretending to be comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Oliver for a news piece about the dispute between American football league officials and referees, which was resolved overnight.

The bald X-Men actor wore a black wig for the skit, during which he used Shakespearean language to report the latest news.

Stewart then revealed his true identity and joked he, "(Al) Pacino, (Meryl Streep) and Glenn Close and the incomparable Mandy Patinkin" had been drafted in as "replacement correspondents" afte...

Mandy Patinkin Opposes 'Princess Bride' Remake; Billy Crystal Wants It

October 11th, 2011 8:39am EDT
The Princess Bride
Mandy Patinkin and Billy Crystal are at odds over a possible remake of their cult movie "The Princess Bride" - the funnyman thinks it's time to revisit the story while Patinkin doesn't want to be alive when it hits the big screen.

The thespian, who played Inigo Montoya in the classic 1987 film, believes some things are better left alone.

He tells Entertainment Weekly, "I hope I'm dead before that (remake) happens. I don't want to have to go through that."

But Crystal would like to see the Rob Reiner film back in cinemas, and he's urging fans to "start a Twitter thing."

Fall Preview: 'Homeland'

October 2nd, 2011 1:32pm EDT
Homeland
For those of you who want really smart TV: watch Showtime's Homeland tonight. You'll thank me later.

Homeland features the underrated Damian Lewis - proving his stellar work in NBC's Life was the rule and not the exception - as Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody, rescued from Iraq after eight years missing. I always felt like I couldn't say enough about Lewis when Life was on, and I feel that way about his performance here. There's something in his eyes that allows you to read remarkable depth of character, yet looking into them you really can't tell if he's good, evil or if he even knows. ...

Best Movie Lines That Have Stuck In Pop Culture

June 5th, 2008 9:00am EDT
The Sixth Sense
There are some movies that live forever in the minds of humanity generation after generation. They span decades, continents, and cross racial and gender divides. What creates that certain magic is intangible, but it inevitably involves the memorable quotes that make their way into pop culture and every day speech.

These quotes have a universal quality, whether humorous or tragic, and they take you back to that exact moment in the film when Marlon Brando screams into the air or Humphrey Bogart gently touches Ingrid Bergman's chin. These iconic moments are not only remembered but consta...
