'West Side Story Cast' Reunites on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 16th 2011 7:30PM
Rita Moreno, George Chakiris and Russ Tamblyn, who played Anita, Bernardo and Riff fifty years ago in 'West Side Story,' stopped by 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) to reminisce about making the classic American musical. Perez Hilton was guest-hosting, and began by announcing, "I am such a show queen; I love 'West Side Story'!" He then launched into his best Anita impression and sang a bit from 'America'. He reminded Moreno of the Oscar she won for her performance and she countered by reminding him that she also won a Golden Globe.

by Chris Harnick, posted Nov 4th 2011 2:00PM
Glee The First Time SongsIn the next episode of 'Glee' (Tues., Nov. 8, 8PM ET) a few couples are going all the way, hence the name 'The First Time.'

The Fox series is also giving viewers a hearty dose of 'West Side Story' songs to go along with the monumental episode.

The 'Glee' cast covers 'A Boy Like That,' 'Tonight,' 'America,' and 'One Hand, One Heart.' Head on over to Wall Street Journal to hear the Warblers cover Billy Joel's 'Uptown Girl.'

Fans will remember this isn't the first time New Directions has tackled 'Tonight.' Back in Season 1, Tina was given the solo, much to Rachel's dismay. However, this time it's all Rachel (Lea Michele) and Blaine (Darren Criss) and they pretty much nail it.

Review: Curb Your Enthusiasm - Officer Krupke

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 9th 2009 8:06AM
Larry David(S07E08) "Some guy told me to go 'f*ck my face' once. He went to jail." - Officer Krupke

With the Seinfeld reunion coming up quickly (next week's episode is "The Table Read") things kicked into high gear last night on Curb -- especially when it came to the role of Amanda, George Costanza's ex-wife.

It came down to Cheryl and a busy, very popular actress named Virgina Sloane (played by Elisabeth Shue). Right off the bat, that creates a huge conflict since Larry assured Cheryl that she had the role. But beyond that, there were a lot of issues with how "Officer Krupke" played out in terms of conflict. Curb works best when the laughs are organic and too much of this episode felt forced and manufactured.

MTV's star-studded West Side Story parody

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 29th 2009 11:35AM
Russell_Brand_MTV_VMA_awardsHow do you pump up the viewership for a music award show on a network that used to be all about music but lately has been all about reality TV and nasty scandals? Well, apparently MTV has decided to go retro and keep it funny. To promote the upcoming 2009 Video Awards, MTV has created a West Side Story parody, not too different from the brilliant solo turn by Neil Patrick Harris at last June's Tony Awards.

The commercial is a mixed bag. Taylor Swift proves that she has the real goods as a singer, doing the toughest part of the "Tonight" quintet. Ne-Yo's dance turn is more of a salute to Michael Jackson than an homage to composers Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. And Katy Perry's rooftop bit reinforces the fact that she's funny and playful.

Life on Mars: Things to Do in New York When You Think You're Dead

Life on Mars: Things to do in New York....
(S01E05) "Have you died and gone to moron heaven?" - Gene Hunt


What we had here, my friends, was a real theological episode. There were lots of references to angels, miracles, prayer and the question of whether or not Sam is dead. If so, is he in purgatory or hell or heaven? Does that explain his predicament? And is the old gray beard a vagrant or a heavenly messenger?

Overall, what I really thought made the show percolate was the teaming up of Sam and Clams. "Clams" we learn is Fletcher Bellow, Sam's mentor, and he pops up in the middle of a potentially explosive riot, with African-Americans going after Puerto Ricans when a little girl plummets from a rooftop at the hands -- or so it seems -- of Angel Ramirez.

(S01E22)
Before we get started, I need to get something out of the way.

"A boy like that. He'll kill your brother."

Who wants to live in America? Rita Moreno does! I'm just one big fag haggis experiencing her inner theater queen. We all know that there's a Betty musical episode in the works, but I think we might be in for a preview next week. The episode is called "East Side Story," guest stars Kristin Chenoweth and is timed perfectly for Justin to save the day for middle school-aged thespians everywhere. Until then, let us reflect on tonight's mystical Mexico tour.

Reno 911!: Wiegel's Pregant (season premiere)

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 9th 2006 10:35PM

reno 911(S04E01) Here we are with the fourth season of the improvisational cop comedy Reno 911!, and if you've been watching the series up to this point you know that any cliff hangers from last season are going to be dealt with hastily so we can get to what the show is really about: police officers behaving life buffoons.

Nevertheless, let's revisit what happened at the end of season three: Trudy's boyfriend, a convicted serial killer, has been sentenced to death by lethal injection. At the last minute, however, the phone rings in the execution chamber. Could this be the call that will save his life? No, as it turns out it was just someone who called the wrong number. So he's dead, or so we assume. Also, Dangle and Garcia have become trapped inside their cruiser during a violent snow storm, but they find themselves rescued by the fire department at the start of this episode. Also, they're both naked inside the car, which they both claim was because they read something once about body heat, or something ... okay, no one knows why they were naked.
