'House' Season 7, Episode 17 Recap

['House' - 'Fall From Grace'] The reason 'House' garnered such a huge following when it first took to the airwaves wasn't just the unique storytelling formula, the familiar twist on classic literary characters, or the new approach to telling a mystery story in 45 minutes or less. It wasn't even because of the main character's bizarre behavior, which would get any other doctor fired from a...

'House' Season 7, Episode 16 Recap

['House' - 'Out of the Chute'] So, after a full season of the kind of lovey-dovey loving that eventually seems to permeate every drama, comedy and mystery show on the dial, we finally get some classic 'House'. All it took was a little heartbreak and a whole lot of pills. Cuddy hands his heart back to his bad Vicodin-popping self and because House treats all personal news with the decorum of...

Casting the Inevitable Charlie Sheen / 'Two and a Half Men' TV Movie

Between the nonstop interviews and webcasts, Tweets, celebrity reactions and online parodies, the seemingly neverending Charlie Sheen saga is rife with material for a dramatic made-for-TV movie. Clearly this whole 'Two and a Half Men' tragedy (I mean the fallout from Sheen's departure, not the actual show) is bound to get a seedy tell-all deal when the dust settles and a rehab doctor finally...

'House' Season 7, Episode 15 Recap

['House' - "Bombshells"] 'House' hasn't been the show that everyone has been looking forward to seeing at the end of a hard day. It's not something that most people stare at the office wall clock praying that the minutes go by so they can learn what interesting or scary disease someone has contracted and how, when, or where it will kill them. Someone out there is still watching it though,...

'House' Season 7, Episode 14 Recap

['House' - "Recession Proof"] Something feels like it's been missing from 'House.' It's an odd sort of feeling, like it's something ridiculously obvious or something that should feel like a no-brainer, but still manages to be elusive and shifty. It doesn't feel like the first few shows, which is an understatement for even the most steadfast and ardent 'House' fans. Just about every audience...

'House' Season 7, Episode 13 Recap

['House' - "Two Stories"] In the spirit of fairness, I wasn't going into this 'House' episode in the best of moods, considering I had to work on a holiday. Not only have the last few episodes been a milligram of melatonin away from being a total snore, but I was all ready to start trashing something to turn it into my own stress ball. A non-metaphorical stress ball would have been more...

9 Greatest TV Star Cameos in Music Videos

A long time ago, on a cable channel not so far, far, away from the ones we have now, a certain "musical" channel played music videos. In fact, this unnamed channel that primarily focused on "music" played the videos that showcased them from sun-up to sundown and all the other hours in between. Some of them featured more than just the musicians that brought the music to life. They also...

'House' Season 7, Episode 12 Recap

['House' - 'You Must Remember This'] It's hard to get over how familiar the episodes are starting to feel. The episodic formula seems set: Patient has a problem that no one can solve, House's team think they have the solution, then they don't, then they think they don't only to find out they don't, lather, rinse, repeat if necessary. That doesn't mean episodes have been sucked dry of any...

Debbie Gibson and Tiffany Use Their Teen-Pop-Idol Powers to Take on 'Mega Python vs. Gatoroid'

Former teen pop idols Debbie Gibson and Tiffany (real name Tiffany Darwish) spent most of the '80s and late '90s running between recording studios and concert venues (including, of course, malls); their paths rarely crossed. "We were both kind of running so fast that running just as fast as we can to coin a phrase," Gibson told reporters on a conference call. "And we would cross paths, you...
