25 February 2015 4:20 PM, PST | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Abby (Lisa Edelstein), Will (Warren Christie) and Jake (Paul Adelstein) from ‘Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce’ (Bravo)

Still processing your emotions after Tuesday night's season finale of "Girlfriends' Guide To Divorce"? Us too.

"Know When It's Time To Move On" was the rule of the finale, but Abby didn't say goodbye to Jake. As they prepared to take the next step after signing divorce papers -- filing them -- Jake suggested something else: "Jake and Abby 2.0."

Abby went home to her divorce party, paintballed her wedding dress, and then decided she wasn't done with Jake ...

Paul Adelstein and Lisa Edelestein in 'Girlfriends' Guide To Divorce' (Bravo)

It's time to sign the papers on "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce."

After watching Abby (Lisa Edelstein) and Jake (Paul Adelstein) split up, file for divorce and hash out what seemed like the next phase of their relationship, things ended up looking a lot less than settled between the two of them in the penultimate episode of Season 1.

Just before Will (Abby's hot young boyfriend played by Warren Christie) returned from Nepal, her ex, Jake decided to give her the necklace she coveted (from ...

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: February 23 - March 1

23 February 2015 5:50 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Beyond the Lights"

Writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood's triumphant return is a labor of love worth your love. This romantic drama stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Noni, a self-destructive pop singer who's tired of the limelight and all it entails. An off-duty cop named Kaz (Nate Parker) steps in to save Noni from making a terrible decision, and naturally, they fall for each other hard and fast. Mbatha-Raw and Parker have great chemistry. Plus, Minnie Driver is excellent as Noni's stage mom.

"Watership Down"

Martin Rosen's emotionally devastating animated film, based on the novel by Richard Adams, has gotten a spiffy Criterion restoration. There aren't a ton of bells and whistles on this Blu-ray, but those little bunnies have never looked so good. »

Bravo Renews Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce

5 February 2015 4:09 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

I’m oddly happy about the fact that this show is getting another season, and that the ratings are climbing.

It’s not quite in the “must watch during actual live time” category (only four things are), but I like the theory of the show even more than the show. Hopefully, the continued realization of that theory is why the numbers are growing.

Better than the ratings, and we have to assume Bravo is smart enough to pick up on this, is the fact that people are talking, and that’s good to see.

Catch our review here, and breathe a sigh of relief, and catch up on the back episodes you have on your DVR that you weren’t investing in until you got good news.

Bravo Media has greenlit a second season of its first original scripted series “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” from Universal Cable Productions (Ucp). Production »

Element-ary, my dear: Catching up on 'Avatar' and 'The Legend of Korra'

30 January 2015 11:10 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Even though a large part of my job is guiding people to TV shows they might find interesting, I rarely find it easy to point my own kids to things I think they should watch — or, better, to things we can watch together. There's too much good adult TV for me to keep track of these days, so I'm virtually lost when it comes to children's programming. Every now and then I'll stumble into something current and fun, like "Phineas & Ferb," or I'll pick out a vintage show that seems kid-safe(*), but they often want to watch the things their friends are watching, or just rewatch the same episode or even scene a thousand times in a row. (I can't swear to it, but I'm pretty sure the two kids spent a week at home where the only words they said to each other were, "Is mayonnaise an instrument?") And »
