Author Note: This original editorial was written in 2011, and several of the references are clearly dated, and more than that, in the past six years, my perspective has altered, changed, been tweaked,…, been re-examined (Shrugs) something to that effect- needless to say that this is the article written by a then-still young(er), still unknowing film school undergrad who had a more wide-eyed and bushy-tailed view of the subculture than I do now. My perspective as an outsider was more curious and intriguing at the time, and I think it’s important to have those kinds of initial thoughts documented, as much if not moreso than one’s current more-refined thoughts. While I will update portions of this article at the bottom of the page, I ask that you keep in mind, the perspective in which it was written, and forgive what are obvious dated references to the time period. »

Here is my Top 20 greatest Seinfeld episodes in descending order. You will not find any episodes that feature George’s parents because their presence in the series was far more annoying than their presumed added value to the show. Only a few episodes on the list include appearances by Jerry’s parents. As much as humanly possible, episodes that dealt with the Jerry and George getting the job writing the pilot for NBC have also been avoided. As much as possible, the episodes included in the list have parts by established actors such as Lloyd Bridges, Teri Hatcher, Maggie Wheeler, Philip

To many, Supergirl is an important superhero show. Not only is it a successful example of a DC show, but it also flies the flag for female superheroes. With the release of Supergirl: The Complete Second Season, things are bigger and on an even greater scale, but does that make it a success?
With Kara (Melissa Benoist) striving to make herself as successful journalist at Catco Worldwide Media, she also has to do the same as Supergirl. Working with her adoptive sister Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), the Martian Manhunter at the Deo, the stakes have never been higher. Thankfully, she has friends and family (including Superman) to help her save the day.
There are a lot of important things that happen in this season, which feel ground-breaking for the show. This includes the “coming out” of Kara’s sister Alex. This is important because of the way it is handled, »

The biggest problem with the DC Comics series on the CW is that they are overstuffed, robbing the title character of the spotlight and forcing them to work as part of a team. The formula can be repetitive and stifling, demanding that the star rise above the noise to get noticed.
As Supergirl moved from CBS where it was a well-reviewed, low-rated buzz series, to the CW, changes had to be made. Calista Flockhart chose not to join the team in Canada so Cat Grant, one of the more interesting members of the cast, was gone but the crappy looking Deo set got a major upgrade.
With Supergirl: The Complete Second Season now available from Warner Home Entertainment, we’re given a chance to evaluate how the sophomore outing went. They certainly aimed high, opening with the inevitable arrival of Supergirl (Melissa Benoist)’s cousin, Superman (Tyler Hoechlin). Of course, »

In the fifth episode of the FX limited series “Feud,” aptly titled “And the Winner Is … (The Oscars of 1963),” bitter rivals Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) go head-to-head at the Oscars. Never mind that Crawford wasn’t even nominated: She manages to steal the night by offering to accept the golden statue on behalf of the other lead actress nominees.
And now Lange and Sarandon find themselves nominated against each other in probably the most competitive category of the year: lead actress in a limited series or TV movie. But don’t draw any parallels to the actresses they played on screen; Lange assures us there are no real-life similarities. “I was so happy the day I saw the nominations and realized the six main actors in the piece were all nominated,” Lange says, referring not only to her and Sarandon, but also their supporting cast of Judy Davis, Jackie Hoffman »

Since its first installment premiered on July 11, 2013, the Sharknado franchise has become practically invaluable to Syfy — but while the budget for each film has gotten bigger, the wage gap between female lead Tara Reid and her male costar Ian Ziering has reportedly remained the same.
This week’s issue of The Hollywood Reporter features an inside look at the surprise hit franchise in which it’s claimed that Reid — who starred in all four installments as well as the upcoming fifth, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming — makes about a quarter of what Ziering earns on each installment.
For Sharknado 5, THR reports that the budget was $3 million, »

Parents will always have concern for their children.
Et's Kevin Frazier spoke with Atomic Blonde star Charlize Theron, who is currently in Berlin promoting her new action-packed new film, and the 41-year-old actress admitted that her mother wasn't too on board with some of the bangs and bruises her daughter faced.
"I think she kicked into mom mode," the Oscar winner said. "She was a little concerned. She saw some of the bruises and stuff."
"Because she wasn't around and she didn't see a lot of what we were doing," she added. "And when she watched the movie, I think she understood it a little bit more. But she definitely became protective."
Thankfully, with Mom's help, Theron was able to hide some of the more strenuous parts of the shoot from her kids, 6-year-old Jackson »
Our sister site Deadline reports that Morgan will recur during Season of the CW series as Penny Peabody aka “The Snake Charmer,” a crafty attorney on retainer with the Southside Serpents, and whom Jughead will enlist to help his dad.
The catch: Penny prefers that clients pay with favors, not cash. (Though — and I’m just spitballing here, late on a Friday night after a couple of adult beverages — she »

Over its past two seasons, Supergirl has welcomed various actors who’ve previously appeared in Superman or Supergirl related productions. Lois & Clark‘s Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher have both turned up, as has 1984’s Supergirl star Helen Slater. Another is Laura Vandervoort, who played Supergirl on Smallville. Now, one of Vandervoort’s co-stars on the show has landed a part on the upcoming third season of The CW DC series.
Erica Durance, most well known for starring as Lois Lane opposite Tom Welling’s Clark Kent on the Superman prequel, has landed the part of Kara Danver’s Kryptonian mother Alura. The character was previously played by Laura Benanti in a major recurring role across season 1 (plus a brief cameo in season 2). As Benanti proved unavailable this time around, the Supergirl team took the opportunity to bring on board another “legacy” actress.

"Unfortunately Laura, who Greg [Berlanti] and I have worked with for years going back to Eli Stone, was unable to continue in the role due to work commitments in New York," executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement. "But we are so blessed that Erica has come aboard to offer her own interpretation of Kara's mother. We had tremendous success with a former Lois Lane last season with Teri Hatcher. We know Erica will continue the proud tradition of legacy actors joining our shows and creating new and exciting takes on classic DC characters."

Supergirl has added another DC veteran to its cast for its upcoming third season, with former Smallville star Erica Durance swapping the role of Lois Lane for Alura Zor-El, which she will take over from Laura Benanti.
“Unfortunately Laura, who Greg Berlanti and I have worked with for years going back to Eli Stone, was unable to continue in the role due to work commitments in NY,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg with regards to the casting shakeup. “But we are so blessed that Erica has come aboard to offer her own interpretation of Kara’s mother.

Supergirl fans, brace yourselves for a mother of a recast.
Erica Durance, famous for playing Lois Lane on Smallville, will take over the role of Kara’s (late) biological mother Alura Zor-El when the CW drama returns this fall, TVLine has learned. Alura, who made appearances throughout the show’s first two seasons, was originally played by Laura Benanti. (Benanti also played Alura’s twin sister Astra, who was eventually killed by Alex.)

W Magazine is going all out with Charlize Theron at the moment. She's on the cover with a new interview, a gorgeous (what else) photoshoot, and there's also a retrospective of her other most compelling photos for the magazine in years pas -- who can forget that photoshoot with Michael Fassbender for Prometheus (*melts from the heat*).
Her new action flick Atomic Blonde has the unenviable task of following Mad Max Fury Road into theaters but thus far word is that it is a bonafide thrill machine as action flicks go. It opens on July 28th so expect Charlize to be everywhere for the next month including right here where we'll be sure to celebrate her career... albeit a little closer to the release.
For now let's revel in this catfighty, rather than catty, anecdote about that time she punched Teri Hatcher in the face in a »

Charlize Theron is out promoting her new movie Atomic Blonde, where she has revealed that she punched Teri Hatcher in the face while they were filming 1996's 2 Days in the Valley. John Herzfeld's 2 Days In The Valley is a black comedy that revolves around 48 hours in the lives of a group of people who are drawn together by a murder. The fight scene between Hatcher and Theron has gone down in history as one of the best fights in cinematic history, beating out Roadhouse on a Rotten Tomatoes top 20 fight scenes.
The 41-year old actress is on the cover of W Magazine where she reveals that part of the infamous fight scene was actually real. Charlize Theron recalls the fight and had some interesting things to say about said fight. She explains.
"2 Days in the Valley. Rotten Tomatoes gave it number 17 on the list of 20 Greatest Fight Scenes Ever. »
Every generation has their favourite Superman and chances are those who grew up in the 1990s remember Dean Cain as their preferred Man of Steel. The actor played the big blue boy scout on Lois & Clark (also known as The New Adventures of Superman), opposite Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane. As the title suggests, the show was just as much about the love story between Supes and Lois as it was the superhero’s exploits. It ran for four seasons from 1993 to 1997 before being cruelly torn from the airwaves.
Now, twenty years later, Cain has been speaking about how much he’d love to feature in a Lois & Clark revival. Talking to 7 News Sydney, he explained that the show was only prematurely cancelled due to his co-star falling pregnant, which would have complicated Hatcher’s filming schedule.
“Well, you know what, we ended our show after four seasons in a weird way because we’re supposed to do a fifth season. Teri [Hatcher] got pregnant in between and couldn’t work on that fifth season so they decided to shut it down. I would have liked to done that fifth season, I think we still need a fifth season, we need something, at least part of a fifth season. So I’m hoping that we get a chance to maybe finish up the series.
“Maybe it’s six episodes, maybe it’s 10 episodes, maybe it’s a two-hour movie. But I think it would be really interesting to catch up with these two characters 20 years down the line and see what’s happened in their lives. If they have had children or what’s going on with their kids, I think it’s really interesting and I’m certainly willing to.”
Fans will remember that the series ended on a massive cliffhanger, as a baby wrapped in a blanket marked with the ‘S’ symbol was left on Lois and Clark’s doorstep. It would be nice to finally get an answer to this mystery, but it does seem like an outside chance that the show could return.
Probably the best thing that we can hope for is that the Arrowverse reveals that the Lois & Clark world is part of the multiverse as established on that show. The 1990s Flash TV series has already been revealed to be just that, so it isn’t ridiculous to think they could do the same for Lois & Clark. After all, Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher have both appeared in Supergirl. »

They reached the heights of fame together on their four-season run of 1993’s Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. And on Tuesday, Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain reunited over 20 years later for a high-flying selfie snapped from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
“Soaring together again,” Hatcher, 52, wrote on both Twitter and Instagram. “So fun to reunite. Thanks to #bridgeclimbsydney.”
Hatcher was all smiles as her arms wrapped around her 50-year-old former costar, similar to what her character, Lois Lane, had so often done with Superman.
