'Parenthood' - 'Lost and Found' Recap (Season Finale)

(S01E13) "She looks like a vampire from 'Twilight.' I like it." - Max on Haddie's new look You know, sometimes a girl just needs to color her hair and make a change. Haddie could have done a lot worse than her perky black bob and dark lips. I'm with Kristina. I think it's cute. And at least she didn't get a tattoo or pierce her eyebrow. Tonight's episode of 'Parenthood' was all about change...

Family TV Guide: 'Glee'

Show: 'Glee' FCC Rating: TV-14 (L, D) Airtime: Tues., 9PM ET Ok for Ages: 14+ Hot Spots: Lots of sex talk, suggestive behavior and some language When 'Glee' premiered last fall, I was excited for a lot of reasons. For one thing, I love musicals, and the early teasers of the cast singing Journey's 'Don't Stop Believin'' made me giddy. Yes, I thought, I HAD, in fact, stopped believin', and...

Jane After Dark has come to the end of 'Supernatural,' and what a wild ride it's been. I can't think of a better way to spend the last half of the winter than to watch Sam and Dean battle demons, realize some heartbreaking truths about themselves, and try to overcome...

Gene Wilder Recaptures Childhood in AT&T Commercial

Life is hard! It's messy and complicated and nerve-wracking and unpredictable! But ... it's also joyful. Only most of the time, the joy gets overpowered by all the other stuff. Instead, it's hidden in little moments that make you go, yeah, I remember now. Life can be filled with wonder and possibilities and dreams. That's what the AT&T 'Rethink' commercial does for me. I can be doing a...

'Fringe' - 'Over There, Part 2' Recap (Season Finale)

(S02E23) "Walter, you asked me why I took out part of your brain. I did it because you asked me to, because of what you were becoming." - William Bell Oh.My.God! I'm wringing my hands in agony here. "Why, why, why?!" Well, I know why. It's because 'Fringe' just loves to take us one way and then do a complete 180 and yank us back the other way. And season three is So.Far.Away! But what are ya...

'Fringe' Finale Preview: Leonard Nimoy Talks William Bell, Retirement and Zachary Quinto

The 'Fringe' finale is tonight, which is fun on many levels, one of which is that William Bell, aka Leonard Nimoy, shows up. Yes, he appeared in the final seconds of last week's episode, but we get even more of him tonight. I sat in on a conference call with Nimoy last week, and he had a few things to say about William Bell, the 'Star Trek' movie, his retirement, and the joy he feels seeing...

'The Good Guys' - 'Pilot' Recap (Series Premiere)

(S01E01) "There are no small crimes, there are only small cops. Put that in your computer circuit. Look, you wanna get rid of me? You wanna work on your career? Grow a pair! Crack some cases!" - Dan to Jack I'm not usually one to go for police procedurals. For one thing, it's a lot of work keeping track of alibis, clues, witnesses, perps, and everything else. But I figured 'The Good Guys'...

'Parenthood' - 'Team Braverman' Recap

(S01E12) "Amber told me to break up with Steve, and then ... she had sex with him." - Haddie to Sarah, Adam and Kristina after she and Amber are hauled into the school for fighting Once again, props to the 'Parenthood' writers for keepin' it real.
