'Winnie, I Smell ... a Child': Baby on the Way for Hocus Pocus Star Vinessa Shaw - See the Witchy Announcement

15 August 2017 11:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A little one is on the way (to run amok?) in Vinessa Shaw’s household!

The Ray Donovan alum, also known for starring as Allison in the 1993 Halloween classic Hocus Pocus, is pregnant, she confirmed on Instagram.

Following her announcement, Shaw posted a creative sign reading “Winnie, I Smell … A Child” and “It’s just a bunch of Hocus Pocus” — two quotes from the film — flanking a positive pregnancy test and drawings of the three iconic Sanderson sisters, made famous by Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy.

The Best TV Guest Stars Ever — IndieWire Critics Survey

28 March 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Who has been the best guest star on a scripted show?

Tim Surette (@timsurette), TV.com

Wayne Brady showing up in body armor and riding a horse on Syfy’s post-apocalyptic disaster disaster “Aftermath” needs to be mentioned somewhere in this critics’ roundup, so here it is. But I’ll point out two from intentional comedies that come to mind. Timothy Olyphant’s short run on “The Grinder” as himself was fantastic and if I didn’t mention this my coworker Kaitlin would kill me. But my pick goes to David Duchovny, also as himself, on “The Larry Sanders Show.” We’d largely known Duchovny for »

9 Buffy the Vampire Slayer Episodes We'll Never Forget

10 March 2017 2:04 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Nobody knew The WB was releasing one of the best television series ever on March 10, 1997.

Yet on that date, on a network no longer in existence, Buffy the Vampire Slayer the series was born, changing genre television forever.

We're celebrating with some of our personal favorite episodes and why they've stuck with us.

Share yours, too!

1. Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episodes 13 & 14, "Surprise" & "Innocence" Confession Time: I only watched the first three seasons of Buffy during its original run. We didn't have cable, and at that point, the show switched stations to one that came in fuzzy when it came in at all. I've watched the complete series several times since (Thanks, Netflix!), but I still connect so much to the two episodes from Season 2, "Surprise" & "Innocence. Those two episodes had such a range of emotion for Buffy, something that tween me could easily relate to (if not the reasons »

Film Review: ‘Claire in Motion’

12 January 2017 7:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The sudden disappearance of a family member is usually a springboard for thriller conventions in film. But writing-directing duo Lisa Robinson and Annie J. Howell’s sophomore feature “Claire in Motion” takes that premise down another path — à la Antonioni’s “L’Avventura,” albeit with a rather different style and sensibility, the inexplicable vanishing of a loved one here uneasily forces those left behind to examine their own lives, and to ponder just how well they really knew the missing person. Breaking Glass is releasing this quiet, intriguing drama to U.S. theaters and on demand Jan. 13 after a successful fest run.

We meet 40-ish mathematician Claire Hunger (Betsy Brandt from “Breaking Bad”) as she sleepily bids goodbye to fellow-academic spouse Paul (Chris Beetem). An ornithologist, he’s taken lately to going off into wilderness areas near their home in Athens, Ohio, taking minimal supplies and living off the land »
