Celebrities That Turn 50 In 2012
The year was 1962, John F. Kennedy was President of the United States and the cold war with Russia was in full swing as the world witnessed the Cuban Missile Crisis. Also in 1962, Marilyn Monroe died of a drug overdose at the age of 36 and Johnny Carson took over the duties of "The Tonight Show." Landmark movies that hit the big screen in '62 included "Lawrence of Arabia" and "To Kill a Mockingbird." The Academy Award winner for best picture that year was none other than "West Side Story."

We think you'll be surprised at how young many of today's popular celebrities look who were born in ...

The 10th Anniversary Of '24'

November 6th, 2011 3:17pm EST
24
How time flies: 10 years ago today, 24 premiered on FOX, and television - not to mention pop culture and the world - was never the same.

The action-drama series, created by La Femme Nikita bosses Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran, and starring Kiefer Sutherland as now-famous government agent Jack Bauer, was a groundbreaking piece of entertainment. It introduced the idea of a television series in real time (each episode was an hour in a day) and employed a distinctive visual style that included the widespread use of "boxes" to provide simultaneous glimpses at multiple storylines. In concept ...

'Chuck' 4.15 'Chuck Versus The Cat Squad' Review

February 15th, 2011 12:44am EST
Chuck
This week's Chuck introduces us to a riff on Charlie's Angels: Sarah's old spy team, the Cat Squad, in all their campy awesomeness (at least in Morgan's brain). "I don't even want to think about what goes on there," Chuck admits, while trying to find said team to invite to the impending wedding. It's a big sign of what's to come when they arrive by helicopter, rather than, y'know, using cars like normal people.

The following morning, with their guests passed out on the floor of Chuck's apartment (except for Carina, who's trying to get back with Morgan), Sarah fills Chuck in on hist...

I
This torturous and painful-to-watch version of a cut rate Survivor starts off with your typical collection of crying scenes and arguments amongst the cast. I'm A Celebrity …Get Me Out Of Here begins with the "Cast" trekking through the Costa Rican jungle for about 45 seconds where they set up camp, which looks like a Hollywood soundstage.

Then the 'stars' of the series, "Speidi" - newlyweds Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt (aka the Anti-Christ), from The Hills, announce after 5 minutes in the jungle that they're quitting and "Pulling the Ripcord" on their stay. Subsequently Spencer call...

Five Television Remakes We'd Like To See, But Probably Won't

January 14th, 2008 4:27pm EST
The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.
Ahh, the remake. The feelings that are evoked when you hear that your favorite program from yesteryear is being re-thought, re-vamped and re-launched for the new generation are hard to describe. Sure, remakes are almost inevitably likely to fail, but so what? That doesn't make their possibility any less tantalizing.

TV remakes don't happen often, although when they do they tend to come in waves. The crest of the latest remake wave seems to be ominously hovering right over our heads as recent launches of "Bionic Woman," "American Gladiators" and the soon-to-be debuting "Knight Ride...
