The Weekend Read: Autism in entertainment from 'Rain Man' to 'Community'

28 March 2015 8:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Weekend Read: Our Saturday essay on the great topics in entertainment and culture today. Last weekend, as Toshi was cruising the Blu-ray shelves for new movies to start asking about, he pulled "Rain Man" on a shelf and considered the cover for a moment before he turned to me, excited. "You didn't tell me Tom Cruise made a superhero movie!" I can only assume his eventual disappointment might be tempered by the fact that "Rain Man" is a pretty good movie. It had been a while since I'd seen it, though, and after they went back to their mom's house, I put it in to watch it. I remember when it came out being right in the midst of my first time watching a lot of classic filmographies, and more than anything, I enjoyed the film as a match-up between Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise.

Glee Recap: Friday, I’m in Love

28 February 2015 8:47 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last night's Glee suffered from a touch of the Ruby Problem, a syndrome I invented while watching a particularly unfortunate story line unfold in the final season of Parenthood. Like Glee, Parenthood had a short final season with (presumably) a reduced budget. To compensate, Parenthood gave one of its secondary characters a troubled teenage daughter and a beleaguered ex-wife, and then spent an awful lot of the season exploring their story. It's not that Ruby's story was bad or that the performers involved in it weren't talented (on the contrary, Ray Romano and Jeanne Tripplehorn were both incredible). It's just not what Parenthood's viewers had tuned in to its final season hoping or expecting to see.I'd imagine that's how Glee fans felt about last night's newbie-centric episode — although as soon as I typed that sentence, I clicked over to Twitter and found at least three "Yay! Newbie stories! »

‘Parenthood’ Finale: Watch Deleted Scenes from the Final Episode

30 January 2015 1:47 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Viewers bid “Parenthood” a tearful farewell last night (leading the beloved drama to its best demo ratings in three seasons), but you can spend a little extra time with the Braverman clan thanks to three deleted scenes NBC just released from the series finale.

Perhaps the most satisfying clip for longtime fans comes as an extension of a scene in Amber’s (Mae Whitman) apartment, in which her father Seth (John Corbett) pays a surprise visit to meet his grandson, Zeek.

In a second deleted scene, the Braverman siblings share a family dinner with their parents before Sarah’s (Lauren Graham) wedding, and the family takes the opportunity to roast the bride-to-be over her long list of exes.

In the final clip, Hank (Ray Romano) struggles to dress for the big day, sharing a sweet moment with his daughter.

Parenthood Series Finale: The Bravermans Say Goodbye

29 January 2015 10:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Admit it, everyone has wanted to be part of the Braverman clan at some point. Not because they had it all together - because they definitely didn't. They were far from perfect and didn't always see eye to eye, but the love they shared with one another was genuinely beautiful. There wasn't a school play or family dinner that a Braverman missed. So, of course, everyone had to come together for Hank and Sarah's wedding on Thursday's series finale - even Haddie (Sarah Ramos), who hadn't been in an episode since coming out to her parents in season 5.
