'American Horror Story: Coven' Theory Of The Week - Is This The End Of Fiona?

January 27th, 2014 10:26am EST
American Horror Story: Coven
Let’s face it; whenever somebody “dies” in Coven, it is hard to take it at face value. Time and time again, characters emerged from their apparent deaths to the surprise of nobody. I mean, Madison, Myrtle, Misty, Queenie, Kyle, need I go on? So when Fiona was brutally killed by the Axeman last episode, it is only natural for us to question the validity or permanence of such an act. There is a slight possibility that Cordelia’s vision is a manipulation by Fiona, yes she saw the violent attack and supposed aftermath (Fiona got fed to the alligators), but Fiona is a pretty powerful witch. Or e...

January 22nd, 2014 9:45am EST
'American Horror Story:Coven' Theory Of The Week
Fiona’s search for immortality has been a major aspect of Coven’s narrative. Along with who will be the next Supreme it is what drives most of the story. The two are intrinsically tied, as Fiona desperately wants to stop the next Supreme from assuming power. She longs to kill her successor in order to remain alive and in power. The season has derived much of its drama and conflict from this very situation and there are many ways these dilemmas could be solved. Fiona is very willing to do anything to get her way. Will this obsessive pursuit be her downfall?

'American Horror Story:Coven' - 'The Dead' Recap

November 22nd, 2013 3:06pm EST
Emma Roberts as Madison
“I got one life and I’m not wasting it,” says a pre-bus crash Kyle in the episode’s opening flashback. He and his fraternity brothers find themselves in a tattoo parlor where they all get douche-y tats, except for dear ol’ Kyle who waxes on about his reasons, not to. Another attempt to show how exceptional Kyle was, what a great future he had ahead of him, and that he had a semblance of a personality before he turned Franken-monster. It’s the seventh episode in and they are still trying to make me care about Kyle, its not working. Though I have to say that Franken-Kyle’s reaction too findin...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Recap: 'Fearful Pranks Ensue' On Halloween

October 31st, 2013 11:00am EDT
American Horror Story: Coven
Last night's episode of American Horror Story was a mix of Mean Girl antics infused with a little 'dead' from The Walking Dead. Just watch the episode if you don't believe me! In the spirit of Halloween the episode had a Halloween-ish theme, whatever that means. The show is legit based on Halloween stories- every week is Halloween in American Horror Story.

In the wake of Madison's (Emma Roberts) death, Fiona demands for her servant Spalding to clean up the dead body. He rolls the body in the rug and whisks her away.

Meanwhile, Queenie is badly hurt; Delia and Fiona take her to the upstair...

American Horror Story: Coven
Okay, we need to talk about this. WTF went down last night on American Horror Story? Is this episode called ‘The Replacements’ because everyone is being replaced? Oh- guess I should mention…SPOILER ALERTS!

'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'Bitchcraft' Welcomes Us To Witches

October 10th, 2013 8:56pm EDT
American Horror Story: Coven
It’s that time of the year again, a new season of “American Horror Story” has begun and this time its witches, bitches. The guiltiest pleasure of all has arrived and I couldn’t be happier. Indeed Coven takes us to New Orleans (a city rich in magical folklore), more specifically to Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, a safe haven for the dwindling witch population in the country. “Bitchcraft” introduces us to the world of Coven, full of the campy, shamelessly over the top material, and riddled with the grand stylistic flourishes that have become so characteristic of the se...

Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman & 5 Other Longtime Famous Couples Who Split Up

October 8th, 2012 6:00pm EDT
Danny DeVito & Rhea Perlman
The news that Danny DeVito, 67, and Rhea Perlman, 64, split after a staggering 30 years together shocked fans around the world this morning. The couple, who have three children together, met after Rhea saw the actor in a play in 1971. They got married in 1982.

No reason was given for the split, but according to AARP, extramarital affairs for people 45 and older are relatively rare. So the odds that Danny or Rhea met someone else is likely not the cause of their break up.

Some relationships just fizzle out over time. Sometimes a couple's personal issues intensify. Most typically, a husband...

That is the question Michael Sucsy’s romantic drama “The Vow” seeks to answer.

The lovers facing this very challenge are Leo and Paige (Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams), a young married couple from Chicago. Right from the start, the actors t...

Can Meryl Streep Win A Third Oscar? Ever?

December 1st, 2011 10:55am EST
Meryl Streep - The Iron Lady
Meryl Streep hasn’t won an Oscar since 1982.

Most people don’t remember that because it feels like groups hand her awards like they’re flyers on street corners. But she’s deserved most of them, and she should probably be on her fourth or fifth Oscar by now.

This year, she has a good chance playing Margaret Thatcher in ‘The Iron Lady.’ The trailer alone promises that she is fantastic in the movie. Her performance has been buzzed about for months, and she’s been a front-runner for the Oscar longer than any other actor or movie this year. The problem is, most of the time she’s considered th...

Ah, the Emmys. The one Awards show on TV that has a nonchalant attitude toward its honorees and the medium it seeks to honor. A ceremony that seeks to put on a funny show, not blow smoke up the behinds of the many winners mostly seem like they'd rather not be there.

Sure, the last couple years were awful, but this year we have the inimitable Neil Patrick Harris at the helm, and with the possibility that this may be Emmy's final year on broadcast television, they're certain to pull out all the stops and ratchet up the funny.

And with that stellar introduction, here is the 2009 Primet...
