At the Movies meets Entourage in season premiere

Medillin - vinceLast season on Entourage, when Vincent Chase decided to put his own money into Medellin it was a major risk and he knew it. He was rolling the dice on his career, taking a leap of faith by choosing to do a controversial biography of a vicious Colombian drug lord. In Spanish. Directed by a hot-headed genius/madman named Billy Walsh.

Vinney was playing with dynamite. It wasn't good for Vincent's career, but it was great for Entourage. Failure is always funnier than success, isn't it?

Speed dating, TiVo style

tivo valentineTiVo is playing matchmaker. On Monday, TiVo is hosting a speed dating party with hundreds of its single subscribers in the San Francisco area.

To get an invite to the event, you have to take the matchmaker quiz (and be in San Francisco by Monday).

Let's say you're on a blind date where your date tells you what shows he/she watches. What shows would make you never call him/her again? I'd run from anyone who watches Dr. Phil.
