'Parenthood' Season 5: 5 Spoilers You Need To Know

September 25th, 2013 3:15pm EDT
Parenthood
“Parenthood,” the tear-jerking drama about a Berkley, California family, is one of the bests shows on television.  It's also the one of the most underrated.  Thanks to a spectacular fourth season that featured Joel and Julia’s adoption of a troubled child; Kristina’s wrenching bout with breast cancer; Sarah’s (Lauren Graham) love triangle; and Amber’s first love, the show is finally getting a fraction of the notoriety it deserves.  To celebrate its move to Thursday nights, here are five spoilers you need to know…

Lauren Graham Worried About Twitter Onslaught Over Upcoming Book

October 30th, 2012 9:42am EDT
Lauren Graham
Bad Santa star Lauren Graham is secretly dreading the publication of her first novel next year - because it means she will have to interact with her fans on Twitter.com.

The actress admits she's not a big fan of micro-blogging because she fears once she starts chatting with followers, she'll never stop.

She tells WENN, "I have been avoiding it. There's something about it that probably I worry I would just never leave the house and I'd just go too far.

"However, I am publishing a novel in the spring and I have been told that I will have to do some of that stuff just in support of that, so...

'Project Runway' Recap: Season 10 Premiere

Project Runway Season 10 premiere
"Project Runway" returned last night, and with it came all of our favorite faces – the always-fabulous Tim Gunn, host Heidi Klum, judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia, and of course Mood’s adorable Swatch. As for the sponsors (and the product pushing started within the first seven minutes), HP and L’Oreal Paris have returned, but that thoughtfully-used accessory wall is now provided by Lord & Taylor instead of Piperlime. The big question is: are the L’Oreal Paris folks doing hair now, too? I didn’t see or hear any mention of Garnier. No Garnier?? Come on, it’s not an episode of "Project Runw...

'Parenthood': The Best Show You're Not Watching

February 28th, 2012 1:10pm EST
parenthood cast
It’s not a stretch to say that while most Americans are struggling through the current economic crisis, Hollywood is battling its own creative recession as the industry continues to sink its money into remakes of old shows, superhero franchises and classic fairytales.

This is why it’s a crime against television that NBC’s “Parenthood” is so unacceptably under-watched and underappreciated. This cape-free show follows the lives of three generations of the tight-knit, wine-loving Braverman clan. With drama that's unflinchingly genuine, the show doesn’t just tug on the heartstrings, it downr...

Fall TV Progress Report: Grading 10 New And Returning Shows

October 14th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
dennings, behrs
Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and it’s not because of everything from, lattes to cakes, is pumpkin-flavored and stores are stuffed with caramel apples. It’s because there is a fresh, shiny crop of new and returning shows to devour. Most shows are at least three episodes in, so it’s time to grade 10 new and returning shows to gauge their progress in this burgeoning season.

NBC Fall Preview
NBC is likely getting tired of being referred to as "fourth place NBC." Last year's Jay Leno experiment was clearly a disaster and served as a boon for TBS, which won the Conan sweepstakes. This fall, NBC has fresher programming. With aging favorites and risky new underdogs, does the network have a shot at moving up the ratings ladder, even to third place? Time will tell. Stranger things have happened. Here's a look at what new shows could make the grade and what's in store for old favorites.

Lauren Graham Hints At 'Gilmore Girls' Movie

Lauren Graham
Actress Lauren Graham has given hope to fans of the defunct series Gilmore Girls - she's revealed a big-screen adaption could be in the pipeline.

The show, starring Graham as a single mom raising her daughter, began in 2000 but was axed in 2007. Calls for a movie spin-off never came to fruition - but Graham admits a big-screen version is now being discussed.

She tells Vanity Fair magazine, "It might (happen). What's funny to me is that in all these years, no one ever talked about (a film) except the fans. But now people... who could actually make it happen are talking about it."

Parenthood actress Lauren Graham is keeping it in the family - she's confirmed rumors she's dating her TV brother Peter Krause.

Graham and Krause have been friends for 15 years and star together in the hit drama, but their small screen sibling love has transferred into real life and they are now a couple. The pair were first romantically linked in April when they were spotted enjoying a cozy dinner date in California, and five months on, Graham has finally gone public with the new relationship.

She tells Redbook magazine, "One of the things that's been so fun is that it's so easy. It's ...

Maura Tierney Returns From Battling Cancer Stronger Than Ever

Maura Tierney fought breast cancer, which was publicly documented last year when she had to leave NBC’s Parenthood to be replaced by Lauren Graham. Now she’s back to fight for the law as a district attorney on ABC’s new show The Whole Truth. She told the Television Critics Association why she’s ready to get back to work.

“I’m good,” Tierney said at the TCA fall press tour. “I’m healthy so that was that. Then I read the script and I liked it so that was that. That’s how I decided.”

When she went public with her health news, the public support gave her a new perspective on the work she choo...

NBC has renewed its new mid-season drama "Parenthood" for the 2010-11 season. "Parenthood" is a one-hour drama inspired by the box-office comedy hit of the same name that premiered Tuesday, March 2 (10-11 p.m. ET).

Pilot Recap: The Who’s Who And What’s What Of 'Parenthood'

March 4th, 2010 9:27am EST
Parenthood
The premiere of the ensemble dramedy “Parenthood” felt a lot like a typical family gathering – some parts are good, some parts are bad, and you’re full by the time you leave. In this Pilot episode, we met about 20 characters in as many minutes, and spent the rest of the hour sorting out who was who, as a whole lot of plot points began to materialize. In summary, here’s what we learned:

At the top of the Braverman family tree are Zeek and Camille played by Craig T. Nelson and Bonnie Bedelia. The senior-most Mom and Dad in the ‘hood have four adult children, who are now in various stages of...

Golden Globes Fashion 2010 - The Ladies

Golden Globes Fashion 2010
Many of the ladies sizzled on the red carpet at last night's Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif. Purple was a major pick of the evening, as Sandra Bullock, Fergie, Heidi Klum and Jane Krakowski demonstrated.

As usual black was a very popular color, and stars like Jennifer Aniston, Mariah Carey, Halle Berry, Heather Graham, Vera Farmiga and Penelope Cruz looked fab.

There wasn't a lot of bad fashion, although Tina Fey's billowing skirt was a bit too much, and Rita Wilson's flower pattern dress was simply too floral.

Starpulse Writer Compares Real Life To 'Post Grad'

Post Grad
I've always felt a companionship with Alexis Bledel due to her seven season stint as Rory Gilmore on the sorely missed "Gilmore Girls." I often imagined myself strolling through the Stars Hollow gazebo with Rory and her oh-so-cool mom Lorelai (Lauren Graham) before settling in for a night on their couch, rambling off sarcastic pop culture references at about 912 words a minute.

Now with the release of her new movie "Post Grad" Alexis and I have even more to bond over. I'm in the same situation as her character Ryden Malby, who is a recent college grad who failed to secure her dream job ...

Spotlight On Lauren Graham And Her Latest Film 'The Answer Man'

There's a double edged sword that comes along with being a famous television star; you have the success and Golden Globe nominations, but what do you do afterward? Lauren Graham is an actress of great comedic timing and ability, and after eight years on the hit show "Gilmore Girls," she made Lorelai Gilmore one of the coolest moms ever on television. Spunky, smart, and fast talking, Lorelai was a hit from the beginning in the sharply written TV series, and Graham's own personal charm certainly added to the character. All you Gilmore fans must be wondering, where did Graham come from and whe...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

July 20th, 2009 9:27am EDT
The Ugly Truth
Last Tuesday I had the opportunity to catch "Dead Snow" on Demand, and it was everything I hoped it would be. To enjoy the film though you truly need to suspend your disbelief, because if Nazi zombies are not enough, there are tons of really ridiculous, impossible events that occur.

This self-aware horror film makes many hilarious references both directly and indirectly to other movies of the genre. Characters are incredibly cliché and the dialogue is woefully written, but it is an action packed gore-fest featuring some of the most delightfully brutal horror movie deaths.

Lauren Graham And Oliver Platt Shine In Broadway's Guys And Dolls, Just Not Together

Remember on Seinfeld when George Costanza gave Jerry two tickets for Guys and Dolls on Broadway? I've probably seen this episode 15 times. I remember thinking: Who gives someone tickets to Guys and Dolls? Is this what people in New York City do? Also: What exactly is Guys and Dolls?

I now live in New York City; I have now seen Guys and Dolls.

Actors & Actresses We Want To Return To TV

While TV gives us one reality program after another, there are quite a few talented thespians that seem to be out of a job. Here's a list of TV actors we want to return to the small screen:

Lauren Graham

Let's be honest: she was the real star on Gilmore Girls. Rory's constant whining started getting tiresome around the third episode. And yes, we all had an opinion on the "Dean or Jess" question, but the real issue was when Lorelai and Luke would eventually get together. In the course of the show Graham defined the character of Lorelai and revealed herself to be a radiant, gifted a...

Character Additions That Nearly Ruined A TV Show (Or Did)

June 10th, 2008 8:45am EDT
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
It's been said that a TV show is only as good as the characters that occupy it. During the first season of series, the writers introduce us to certain main characters that the show is going to revolve around. Once a season ends and a new one is about to start all bets are off because the writers don't want to see the ratings drop.

Their solution? Bring in new characters.

Whether they were added in advance or brought on spontaneously, new characters are added in hopes of appealing to an even bigger audience and to increase a particular show's ratings. This doesn't always turn out ...

Our Favorite Fictional TV Towns

May 22nd, 2008 8:30am EDT

Many television series are based in real-life cities (Full House - San Francisco; Family Matters - Chicago; and Beverly Hills, 90210 - Beverly Hills). Even though several TV towns are fictional, TV fans can't help but wonder what it'd be like to live there.

Here's a look at some of our favorite fictional TV towns:

Stars Hollow, Connecticut (Gilmore Girls)

Stars Hollow, which was founded in 1779, is a small town in Connecticut that's home to some very eccentric characters. From Rory and Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham), to the grouchy Luke Danes and the always stranger Kirk, ther...

What's The Best Show On TV Right Now? Starpulse Writers Weigh In

April 21st, 2008 8:33am EDT
Best TV Show?
What makes a TV show great? Is it the number of viewers or awards it has received? Not necessarily. In its last season, less than 3 million people tuned in to an episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," but it is unarguably one of the best sci-fi/fantasy shows of all time. In seven seasons, the show won just one Emmy - in 1998 for outstanding makeup. Guess what other fan favorite won just one Emmy (also for outstanding makeup)? Gilmore Girls.

Despite both series' original and witty screenwriting, they never received the props they deserved. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Lauren Graham bo...

What Are Your Favorite TV Bloopers?

Bloopers. We all laugh at them. Sometimes we can't help but watch closely for them. Some bloopers are harder to notice, but we still spot them. Here is a sampling of some great TV bloopers.

Gilmore Girls

During the first season viewers hear Lane (Keiko Agena) talking about her parents, but we never meet her father. In one episode, after Lane moved out, she snuck back home and into her mom's room and only her mother was sleeping in the bed.

Sean Gunn (Kirk) first appeared in the second episode as Mick who was at the Gilmore's house to install the DSL that Emily (Kelly Bishop) ord...

What Killed 'Jezebel James': The Timeslot, Laughtrack & Parker Posey

March 26th, 2008 9:24am EDT
Jezebel James
I suppose Jezebel James only wanted to stay for a short return. After a mere three episodes, and ratings that made "Arrested Development" look like "American Idol," FOX dropped the ax on what was once its hotly-anticipated sitcom "Jezebel James."

At the network up fronts back in May 2007, "James" was highly lauded and seen by FOX as a potential tent-pole sitcom around which an entire evening of programming could be built. It seemed like a surefire hit when the series received a full 13-episode order right off the bat and was slated to debut in the coveted timeslot following "American ...

All The Elements Are In Place For 'Jezebel James' To Be A Quality Sitcom

March 18th, 2008 8:44am EDT
The Return of Jezebel James
"The Return of Jezebel James" debuted this week with a two-part premiere featuring the pilot and the series' second episode. FOX, in their infinite wisdom, chose to bury these first two installments in the abyss of the Friday night timeslot, which is really a shame as the series begins on a very strong note.

"James" is the return to television for Amy Sherman-Palladino. She is best as the auteur behind "Gilmore Girls". Previously she wrote for more conventional sitcoms including "Roseanne" and "Veronica's Closet." Her new show brings many of the elements from "Gilmore Girls" into th...

There May Be Cracks, But The Comedy Glass Ceiling Still Exists For Women

After reading this month's "Who Says Women Aren't Funny" issue of Vanity Fair, it is impossible not to notice just how many beyond the current "it" girls of comedy were left off that list (which included funnygirls such as Tina Fey, Sarah Silverman and Amy Poehler). This is an attempt to rectify that and garner them the recognition they so rightly dese...

Television. It's a compelling medium in itself - but also frequently acts as a launching pad for actors chasing big screen dreams.

So, who should the next TV-turned-movie star be? Here's our Top 10 List to get you thinking.
