Television, notoriously full of references and allusions, might be the worst/best culprit, and the most fun to hunt through for literary moments — after all, nothing’s more fun than seeing books on the boob tube.

Men of Honor, Vampires, Audiobooks, and ‘Gilmore Girls': Highlights From Edward Herrmann’s Career

As someone who has had a long relationship with the television show Gilmore Girls since it first came on the air in 2000, the news of Edward Herrman’s death felt like the loss of a family member. I’ve spent countless hours watching him move two steps forward, one step back as the patrician Connecticut grandfather, hurt and trying to restore his relationships with his fast-talking, coffee loving daughter and brainy granddaughter. While Gilmore Girls may have served as my introduction to the charms of Herrmann as an actor, once I was familiar with his frame and his sonorous voice, I nearly saw him everywhere, as befitting a wonderful breed of character actor that we don’t get everyday.

Is Adam Brody Ever Going to Happen?

For some people, the name “Adam Brody” will forever evoke visions of Seth Cohen, the nerd hero of the ’00s Fox teen drama The O.C. To a generation of teens, Seth Cohen was it: he made Chrismukkah and indie rock like Death Cab for Cutie and Bright Eyes mainstream — in fact, the long slog from “college rock” to bands like Modest Mouse playing big venues likely owes a lot to this character — and he won the heart of his dream-girl crush who looks hella good in a Wonder Woman costume, Summer Roberts (Rachel Bilson). … Read More
