'White Collar' Recap: 'Judgment Day' (3.16)

February 28th, 2012 11:09pm EST
White Collar
Can you believe it's the White Collar third-season finale already? And are you ready for the answer as to whether or not Neal will be a free man? Well, here we go...

While we open with Neal getting the particulars on the commutation hearing process in a room with no decor (because all important hearings on TV seem to happen in big, open rooms with no decor and are run by unlikable, interchangeable bureaucrats), Peter is stunned to hear that his pal Kramer (Beau Bridges) doesn't just have his sights set on luring Diana to Washington. He wants Neal there, too. Here I think, "Dude, ge...

'White Collar' 2.16 'Under The Radar' Recap and Review

March 9th, 2011 9:46am EST
White Collar
White Collar's second-season finale has everything but the kitchen sink: the return of several prominent guest characters, including the villainous Vincent Adler. His takedown was certainly rewarding, but did it live up to the hype? That depends on how you look at it.

Peter and Neal are strolling through New York, with Neal carrying a box full of fake Rolexes, on their way to the FBI office. Sara is there waiting for them, claiming she's found something big in the ocean - but first, we have to have the obligatory awkward moment between the two of them since they were locking lips a...

'White Collar' 2.13 'Countermeasures' Recap And Review

February 8th, 2011 11:07pm EST
White Collar
It's a busy day for Neal Caffrey. First, he meets with Mozzie to check on the progress of their fractal antenna. Mozzie says using the phrase "good work" implies he has a job. I start laughing, and I'm still snickering by the time Neal returns back home, looking for June, and walks into Ford (Billy Dee Williams), an "old friend" of hers who's just moved back to Manhattan. He is naturally suspicious (oh, Matt Bomer, how I love you and your facial expressions) and starts asking questions, having no idea that when he uses the phrase "partners in crime," he's totally right. Worried, he ...

'White Collar' 2.10 'Burke's Seven' Advance Review

January 11th, 2011 5:00pm EST
White-Collar-tv-52.jpg
White Collar left us with a bang - literally, as Mozzie was shot by a man named Julian Larsson (The Dresden Files' Paul Blackthorne). As we resume the show's second season, the normally cool Neal Caffrey is still running hot, knowing the two most important people in his life were targeted by the same conspiracy. Having finally caught Garrett Fowler (Noah Emmerich), he sets his sights on Larsson - and what could be just another "let's move on to the next page of our mythology" episode is an impressive midseason premiere.

Mozzie's fate is handled deftly within the opening minutes; not ...

Weird, Strange Holiday Specials

December 23rd, 2008 12:08pm EST
The Star Wars Holiday Special
Since the Christmas season plays such an important roll in many people's lives, the holiday invariably leaks into popular culture. Most cartoons eventually tackle the topic of Christmas, which means we've all seen the holiday celebrated in some strange situations. The Flintstones celebrate Christmas despite it taking place a few dozen millennia before the birth of the holiday's namesake. Still, that doesn't seem too strange. Occasionally though, things do get strange. A stone-age Christmas seems normal compared to Pac-man learning the meaning of Christmas from Santa himself. Something about...

Race Matters: Is Hollywood Truly Color Blind When It Comes To On-Screen Romance?

September 29th, 2008 9:49am EDT
Die Another Day
In John Grisham's bestselling novel "The Pelican Brief," investigative journalist Gray Grantham and law student Darby Shaw uncover a political conspiracy and in the process, end up between the sheets. In the 1993 film version, Darby Shaw (played by Julia Roberts) and Grantham merely share a chaste hug in the film's conclusion. What happened between page and screen? One theory: In the novel Grantham is white; in the film, he's portrayed by Academy-Award winning - and black - actor Denzel Washington.

The stigma of interracial relationships in cinema can be traced back to the 1934 Motio...

The Image of Black Women in Entertainment

March 24th, 2008 1:17pm EDT
Tyler Perry
Where in the world are black women in today's entertainment? There is a significant dearth in quality images of African-American women in television and film. And no, Oprah's un-Godly success and stature doesn't diminish this truth.

It wasn't always like this. In 1968, Diahann Carroll starred in the ground breaking series "Julia." Heralded as being the first series to star a black woman in a non-stereotypical role, "Julia" produced 86 episodes and Carroll earned herself a golden globe.

In the 70s, Pam Grier played a character that went against the typical African American fema...

Heather Locklear Won't Appear in 'Dynasty' Reunion Special

March 25th, 2006 4:00pm EST
Heather Locklear
Heather Locklear, John James and Dihann Carroll have snubbed the chance to reunite with their Dynasty castmates in an upcoming TV special. Producer Michael Levitt is the brains behind the show, "Dynasty Reunion: Catfights & Caviar," and he invited the entire cast to team up for the anecdotal special, which will air in May.

John Forsythe, Linda Evans, Catherine Oxenberg and Joan Collins were among the first stars to sign up for the 25th anniversary show, but Levitt has had less luck with others. He says, "They graciously declined."

Ambitious Levitt hopes to persuade Evans and Coll...
