Who says it’s not easy being green? Well, Kermit the Frog did actually, but if you’re literal high-flyer Elphaba in the musical Wicked, it’s pretty darn boss, especially give that the teen-adored Stephen Schwartz musical (which received mixed reviews upon opening in 2003) just celebrated 10 years on Broadway this week. (EW just featured leads Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel on our annual Reunions cover). And unless Halloween rendered you deaf from overzealous trick-or-treaters, Broadway became all abuzz with the debuts of real-life, smoldering couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz in a revival of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, but »

Thanks to Instagram, Danny Masterson shared photo evidence that the kids of That ’70s Show still hang out. Sure, it's not in Topher Grace's basement, but they appear to be having a sing-along (We're all alright! We're all alright!) It would be rude to complain that Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) is sorely missing, but she might just be in the kitchen popping popcorn. Never forget: »

That ‘70s Show Season 8, Episode 21, “Love of My Life” & Season 8, Episode 22, “That ‘70s Finale”
Directed by David Trainer
Written by Greg Mettler
Original Airdate: May 18, 2006 on Fox
In this decade it’s extremely difficult to find a sitcom that is as perfect as That ‘70s Show was. This show was, and still is, one of the best coming of age/high school set sitcoms (after Freaks and Geeks of course). It’s probably not the first finale that comes to mind when thinking about greatest television finales; but for me it’s way up there.
With good vibes, brilliant writing, and excellent characters that actually evolve That ‘70s Show is, to me, the ideal sitcom. What starts off as a comedy centered on the ‘70s, with a boy with mistaken ideals and a lack of confidence, soon turns into a series of memories, with six characters who weren’t adults »
The actress has moved on to other projects, including Saturday's (Aug. 17) new Lifetime movie "Baby Sellers," which casts her as an investigator probing a questionable adoption-agency operator (Kirstie Alley). Still, Finnigan laments the end of TNT's "Monday Mornings," the recent medical drama in which she starred with such notables as Alfred Molina and Ving Rhames.
"The ratings were a disappointment," she admits to Zap2it, "but they were building each week, and our audience was extremely loyal. I just think it had so much potential. Cable networks have a history of giving shows with a pedigree a shot, so it surprised me a bit."
"Where I Lead Me" marked the "long time coming" episode where Zoe and Wade break up. After a dramatic twist of out-of-character in last weeks episode, all of those decisions came to heed and despite Wade's begging he lost Zoe.
On a lighter note we were given more Wanda and Tom as it was their wedding day in Bluebell. I think because of Tom and Wanda, I enjoyed this episode a lot more than I enjoyed last weeks episode.
Please note: When I use the term Ooc - I mean "out of character" which means actions or things said that are something that character wouldn't do in present day form.
I might as well get the negative out of the way before I move onto the happy part of the episode and the bad part is Wade Kinsella. Here's the jist of what happened, the writers needed a reason to »

In "The Gambler" we witnessed the most amount of drama we have seen all season during Hart of Dixie Season Two. I can honestly say that this was my least favorite episode of the entire series. Not because it was dramatic but because everyone was out of character.
I was very disappointed in this episode so prepare for a short review because I don't have many nice things to say about tonight.
Let me begin with the main storyline of Wade and Zoe. First of all, can we have one episode where Wade and Zoe are not having relationship problems? I mean, it seems that all they do is fight and then make up in some adorable way in the end. If all they were going to do was disagree and apologize, then why put them together in the first place? Their relationship seems more negative than a positive at this point. »

Hart of Dixie Season 2, meanwhile returned from hiatus last night. What did you think of "Old Alabama?" »

Popping up midway through Dixie‘s second season, Rupp will play Betsy Maynard, Wanda’s gin-loving mom who comes to Bluebell for a visit. Unfortunately, she becomes such a handful, her daughter pawns her off on Zoe.
Rupp most recently co-starred as the matriarch on ABC’s short-lived comedy Better With You.
