It’s Nobody’s Business Why William Shatner Missed Leonard Nimoy’s Funeral

Leonard Nimoy’s death prompted an almost universally positive outpouring of remembrances in the media Friday, but the backlash against his Star Trek costar William Shatner sounded a more sour note. This weekend, Shatner came to social media to express his sorrow over the loss of his costar and friend, and lamented his inability to attend Nimoy’s funeral due to a charitable commitment in Florida. For this, he was rewarded with a “Captain Jerk” headline by the tabloids. … Read More

Maureen Dowd Stumbles Upon Female “Raunch” Comedy, Proclaims It a Trend

It is one of the small pleasures of life to see a New York Times op-ed columnist come down from her tower, take notice of a phenomenon in the culture sphere, and proclaim it an actual trend.

‘The Good Wife’ Season 6 Episode 13 Recap: “Dark Money”

When last we met The Good Wife, nearly two months ago, 2015 was still young and full of promise. Before taking a seven week hiatus, one imagines that the show hoped to go out strong, leaving the audience wanting more. Sadly, The Good Wife’s last episode was much more akin to an “ill-advised one-night stand you can’t get out of your apartment the next morning” than a “love at first sight, when can I see you again” encounter. … Read More

‘Girls’ Season 4 Episode 7 Recap: “Ask Me My Name”

Confession: I found this episode very difficult to watch. In Girls-land, a Hannah Horvath meet cute is the equivalent of the Jaws theme, a surefire sign that things are about to get (emotionally) gory and fast. So from the moment Fran the “17th century notions of utopia” teacher, played with familiar sweetness by Obvious Child leading man Jake Lacy, asks Hannah out in the faculty lounge of their fancy schmancy Brooklyn private school, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. And drop it sure as hell did. … Read More

Now that we’ve all recovered from SNL’s awkward 40th anniversary celebrations, Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson guest hosts to welcome us back to Studio 8H. Johnson’s appearance doesn’t make things un-awkward, but she brings a subtle humor to the proceedings that will either win you over or lull you to sleep.
