Rolling Stone just issued their list of the 'Top 100 Television Shows of All Time.' The rankings, which came from a survey of actors, writers, critics, and producers, includes all the shows you’d expect like Seinfeld, The Simpsons, The Sopranos. And a bunch of other programs that don’t start with the letter “S.” It’s a pretty comprehensive list and a reminder of how many great shows there have been even before what we’re now calling the Golden Age of television. Like any “top” anything list, there’s controversy. And we’re more than happy to dive into that topic. One thing we didn’t do is re-rank everything. If we did that, we’d be here forever and you wouldn’t want to read any further. So rather than that, we’ve just picked three shows that made the list that shouldn’t have and three replacements to fill those gaps. »

In the hierarchy of significance in what made news this past week, the sudden availability of the entirety of Albert Brooks’ output of feature films as a writer-director via Netflix Streaming may not carry the urgency of, say, the alarming continuance of African-American deaths under police fire, the attack on a peaceful protest against police violence by shooters who killed five law enforcement officers and wounded several more in Dallas, the ongoing partisan bloviating inspired by the FBI’s decision to not charge Hilary Clinton with federal crimes, or the frightening clown circus of offenses that characterizes the dawning of each new day in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. But art can, among many other things, provide a momentary respite from pain, sometimes even while examining some of the more frustrating, self-centric and petty dissonances within our own, or someone’s else’s worldview, and in this Brooks’ films at »

Even though Moonlighting wasn’t the first show of its type, it’s probably the most famous – and infamous – “will they or won’t they” TV show ever. This is the show that gave the television industry the myth of the Moonlighting curse. The one-hour dramedy starred Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis as Maddie Hayes & David Addison and boasts some of the most fun and creative scenes on television. (Granted, the scenes owe much to films of the 1930’s and 40’s.) Moonlighting won both actors Golden Globe awards as best actors in a comedy or musical. It also had a ton of

Before I saw Taxi Driver in 1976 at age 15, I only watched horror films and comedies. Martin Scorsese’s 1976 masterpiece made me realize there were other types of movies out there and I became completely obsessed with the film. I saw Taxi Driver at theaters at least a dozen times in its initial run and remember riding my bike to see it at the Kirkwood Cinema five nights in row. I had the poster on my wall and would play the soundtrack LP over and over, memorizing the (cleaned-up) dialog. I actually went to High School dressed like Travis Bickle in a green army »

It was bound to happen sooner or later. Now it's here, and it's hilarious. Enterprising Youtuber Huw Parkinson has made a new viral parody video that puts Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump smack dab in the middle of Westeros for one very amazing mash-up video. And it proves that the fantasy kingdom might be even more dangerous with The Donald leading the charge.

The morning after Donald Trump took the New Hampshire primary among Republican hopefuls, Funny or Die unveiled his “long lost” autobiographical movie, which movie host Ron Howard explained, was written, directed and stars the orange-hued real estate magnet-turned-reality TV star-turned-gop front-runner.
