'In Stereo' movie with Micah Hauptman and Beau Garrett. 'In Stereo' movie review: Witty, sarcastic romantic comedy In Stereo is a particular kind of romantic comedy – the kind full of characters that aren't remotely romantic, that tend more toward wit and sarcasm rather than light or camp comedy (unless it involves someone getting beaten up), and in which things may very well turn out badly for the protagonists, whom we may or may not be inclined to root for or even like. This is my kind of romantic comedy; a little mean and very funny if you prefer wit and sarcasm to fart jokes – as witty and sarcastic people always do. By definition, something that is in stereo comes at you from at least two directions at once – the same yet different – together creating something that is fuller and truer than either of the elements alone. In Stereo, the film, »

The cast of “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” joined James Lipton Tuesday evening for a mock edition of “Inside the Actors Studio” to discuss Bravo’s first-ever scripted series, in front of a crowd filled with TV Academy members.
Following the panel, “Top Chef” Boston contestants served up the Universal Studios Hollywood reception with dishes from season 12 winner Mei Lin, plus finalists Melissa King and Doug Adams. King prepped scallop crudo with citrus, Adams served a Texas-style brisket chili, and Lin made her winning congee dish. During the tasting party, small bites including mini cheeseburgers, brie crostinis and kimchi falafel were passed around, and chocolate-dipped strawberries were the hit of the dessert buffet.

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.
