A Starpulse Writer's Pop Culture TV Christmas List

Gilmore Girls
Dear Santa:

I don't believe one can ever be too old to believe in the magic and spirit of the holiday season, nor do I believe one shouldn't be able to ask for something they want. After all, if Oprah and The Secret taught us anything, it is that you have to put what you want out in the universe in order to have a shot at getting them. So keeping that in mind, here is my not-so grown-up Christmas list!

Is it just me, Santa, or is it really annoying when a studio puts out the first season or two of a favorite old show on DVD just to see what kind of response it will get but then makes...

November 5th, 2008 11:50am EST
Days Of Our Lives
Back in 2004 a documentary-- not completely unlike Trekkies but for the soap opera crowd-- began filming in Los Angeles, interviewing the stars and fans alike of Days of our Lives. In honor of the fortieth anniversary of the show being on air (as well as the producer/director's college thesis project), this documentary sought to look deep into the psyches of the people who dedicated the majority of their lives to following this show. At an hour a day, five days a week, starting at a time before TiVo, it was true dedication to devote one's interest to such a show. What was found, though, ...

Tori Spelling Gets Her Own Show On VH1

January 17th, 2006 8:45am EST
Tori Spelling stars as a fictionalized version of herself in VH1's first scripted comedy "so noTORIous." This single camera show is inspired by real events and people in Tori's life. Also starring is Loni Anderson as her on-screen mother, "Kiki." The series will premiere Sunday, April 2 at 10PM ET/PT.
