The Top 10 TV Shows That Should Be Brought Back, Rebooted Or Just Re-Run

October 5th, 2012 3:07pm EDT
Miami Vice
TV remakes are either hit-or-miss, but with hollywood lacking many new ideas (seems like every other show is a crime drama or takes place in a hospital these days) we've thought of a few classic shows that we think would make the cut and stick around for a while -- if they're done correctly.

There are a number of old shows from the 70s and 80s that have been brought back in recent years, some with all new casts and edgier than their predecessors, and others featuring some of the original cast members. Others were revamped entirely, and some casting decisions killed a couple before they wer...

Don Johnson's 'Nash Bridges' Award Doubles

September 9th, 2010 9:43am EDT
Don Johnson
Don Johnson has spoken of his "sense of vindication" after a judge granted him a further $28 million in a battle with TV bosses over his 1990s show Nash Bridges.

The actor was awarded $23.2 million in July after successfully suing bosses at production company Rysher Entertainment, Inc., claiming he was owed 50 per cent of the profits from the show because he owned half of the cop drama's copyright.

And on Wednesday he was victorious again - Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern ruled that Johnson is due more than $28 million in interest. Johnson, who played a San Francisco cop ...

Don Johnson Attacked By Warthog

September 1st, 2010 11:27am EDT
Don Johnson
Veteran actor Don Johnson put his survival skills to the test during a recent wildlife safari - when he and his wife were attacked by a wild warthog.

The Miami Vice star took his partner Kelley on a trek to Africa, and the trip took a dangerous turn when they spotted a pack of "four or five" of the beasts in the bush near their camp - and one came charging at the couple. However, Johnson was quick to react, and fought off the animal like "a lion tamer" with a nearby chair.

He recalls, "We step into this open area, I look up, and there's this warthog along the way. He sees me and starts...

Nash Bridges
"Miami Vice" star Don Johnson has been granted $23.2 million in a battle with TV executives over profits from his 1990s show "Nash Bridges."

The actor sued bosses at production company Rysher Entertainment, Inc. last year, claiming he was owed half the profits from the show because he owned half of the cop drama's copyright, and on Wednesday he was victorious.

He suggested the series bosses earned more than $300 million in revenues and more than $150 million from syndication, and called for a $100 million settlement.

A judge at Los Angeles County Superior Court ruled in Johnson's favour ...

Both provided us with fascinating films to watch, memorable music to listen to, and new forms of entertainment that we still use today. But when it comes to entertainment, which decade was better?

The Most Underrated & Overrated Influential TV Shows

August 22nd, 2008 9:28am EDT
Miami Vice
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and on television it often appears to be the only form of creativity. Yes, ever since Milton Berle first stole a joke for "Texaco Star Theatre", TV has been a wild west of borrowing material and copying good ideas until they've become completely stale. Many of these ideas were so good, in fact, that their resonance is still felt today, and that's when a show crosses over from being copied to being influential.

Over the years, many shows have been considered influential. From "The Dick Van Dyke Show" first showing both the home and office l...

Top Ten 80s Movie Soundtracks

February 28th, 2008 12:27pm EST
Purple Rain
Starpulse recently ran a 'Top Ten 80s Albums' list, in which the inclusion of the Top Gun soundtrack inspired me to come up with a list of the "Top Ten 80s Movie Soundtracks." After doing a little 'freshening up,' both through my own personal collection, growing-up-80's memories and, oh, some website that has info about movies & music and the like, I've narrowed my list down to the top ten.

(And no, "Top Gun" didn't take my breath away and make it onto the list)

The main criteria used here is that only the film had to be released in the 80s, not the music contained on its soundtrack. I...

Say the name "Chaka" and most folks in the know instantly think of a woman who has made an indelible and lasting impression on the music scene of the past three decades. First, as the lead singer of the massively successful R&B, funk and pop band Rufus, then as a solo artist in her own right who has influenced an entire generation of female vocalists (think Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Ledisi, Maysa among others). Like Aretha, like Joni, like Tina, a first name will do. For there's only one Chaka, woman of fire, possessed of a powerhouse, unforgettably distinctive trademark vocal style who ...
