Top TV Sidekicks

April 1st, 2008 2:00pm EDT
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Who does a hero turn to for support? How does a tough as nails cop lighten up a little? Who do fan fiction writers pair up with their main characters to create some truly disturbing story lines? The answer to all these questions is sidekicks.

Without sidekicks, lead characters would simply have nobody to talk to. So Starpulse has decided to honor some of the sidekicks that have made television a little more enjoyable:

Rhoda Morgenstern

Sidekick to Mary Richards

From: The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-1977)

March 24th, 2008 3:00pm EDT
The Shield
Shows about the police force or law enforcement in general have become commonplace on television. Over the years shows like Hill Street Blues, Dragnet, and NYPD Blue made an impact on TV audiences. More recently, series like 24, The Shield, CSI and The Wire have focused on the gritty aspects of crime fighting.

What are the top five crime fighters on television in the last 10 years? After conducting a great deal of research and some painful debate, we have compiled the list below, in alphabetical order.

TV On DVD Recommendation: 'Homicide: Life On The Street'

March 7th, 2008 3:19pm EST
Homicide: Life On The Street
"Homicide: Life on the Street" is one of the least-watched long-running police dramas that ever aired. It is superior in every way to its contemporaries "Law & Order" and "NYPD Blue" and the modern "CSI". Picking up the mantle of realism left bare by the departure of "Hill Street Blues", "Homicide" detailed the everyday happenings in Baltimore's Homicide Division.

It was shot mainly using hand-held cameras in a style that would become the norm for gritty realistic crime dramas on both the big and small screen. The series' true ensemble cast prominently featured the excellent Andre...

ABC Loses Appeal Over 'NYPD Blue' Nude Scenes

February 21st, 2008 3:08pm EST
NYPD Blue
TV network ABC has failed in its attempt to overturn a ruling penalizing the broadcaster for depicting illicit nude scenes in an episode of NYPD Blue.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) refused to alter its judgment and the TV channel will now be forced to pay a multi-million dollar fine for showing female nudity before the American television watershed.

More than 40 affiliate TV stations have landed $27,500 fines for the 2003 episode which was said to have featured "multiple, close-up views" of an actress' buttocks. The total fine will be approximately $1.2 million.

Where Are They Now?: 'A Different World'

February 14th, 2008 11:00am EST
A Different World
"A Different World," a half-hour sitcom about students at fictional Hillman College, was on the air from 1987 to 1993. It was the creation of Bill Cosby and originally served as a spin-off venue for then Cosby kid Lisa "Denise" Bonet.

However, it wasn't until Lisa Bonet was booted from the show (due to a pregnancy) that "A Different World" really took off in popularity. Fueled by a core ensemble cast of likeable characters - Dwayne, Whitley, Freddie, Kim, Jaleesa, Ron, and Walter - "A Different World" was in the top 10 shows in the Nielsen ratings for five of the six years it aired.

ABC Facing Fine Over 'NYPD Blue' Buttocks Exposure

January 28th, 2008 9:03am EST
NYPD Blue
TV network ABC is facing a multi-million dollar fine after it aired an episode of NYPD Blue depicting female nudity. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reports a show broadcast in 2003 featured "multiple, close-up views" of a lady's rear.

The FCC rules "sexual or excretory activities" shown in an "offensive" way prior to 11 p.m. are indecent - however ABC insists the buttocks are not a sexual organ and plan to appeal the ruling.

An ABC spokeswoman pointed out the program was broadcast with parental warnings and "the realistic nature of NYPD Blue's storylines was well-kn...

Esai Morales
A former girlfriend of actor Esai Morales has re-accused him of raping her and giving her herpes - and this time she claims there are other women who will testify on her behalf.

At the conference, Mazzocchi reiterated she started dating Morales in January 2006 and moved into the actor's home two months later. She claimed her ex started "physic...

80's TV Stars: Where Are They Now?

October 16th, 2007 10:35am EDT
Danica McKellar
Nothing makes you feel older than when you realize that 1987 was 20 years ago. Those of us born and/or raised in the 1980s remember a time of outrageous fashion, outrageous music, and most of all, outrageous television.

But most of us have also made the transition from the 1980s to the present day with relative ease - we've put away our scrunchies, retired our parachute pants, cut out our shoulder pads, and we've moved onwards and upwards (into the stylized 00s).

But what about the television stars we love and hate? Did they ever manage to leave it all behind? Starpulse is sick ...

"I run six-to-eight miles a day, plus weights and aerobics in the lunch hour. I also lie a lot, which keeps me thin." House star Hugh Laurie on his fitness regime.

Amy Brenneman Is Worried About 'NYPD Blue' Nude Outtakes

September 21st, 2007 9:38am EDT
Amy Brenneman
Former NYPD Blue star Amy Brenneman fears her famous nude scene on the hit TV cop series will come back to haunt her. The actress became one of the first women to bare all on primetime TV back in 1993, and though her saucy scene was brief, she knows there are hundreds of outtakes still in existence.

She says, "They shot lots of unused stuff for that nude scene, which I'm convinced is now on Swedish TV somewhere."

Courteney Cox & David Arquette
Courteney Cox and David Arquette have discovered that selling their home to the owner of baseball team the Los Angeles Dodgers reaps dividends - free tickets.

The couple were guests of Frank and Jamie McCourt on Tuesday night when the Dodgers beat the Washington Nationals 4-3. The McCourt's bought Cox and Arquette's Malibu, California mansion for $32 million in July.

The low-key Hollywood couple also made it on to Dodgers Stadium's big screen towards the end of the game - Cox smiled sheepishly as Arquette seemed thrilled to be the center of attention.

New York-based Svoy was born in a small port city in the Russian Far East and has let music lead him on an incredible journey, from the late night piano musings of his next door neighbor, to the Russian Academy of Music to study with the legendary and beloved Russian bebop pianist Igor Bril. Music had a larger plan for Svoy, however, and he was offered a scholarship to Boston's Berklee College of Music and it was there that Svoy found his true musical calling.
