Sure, those of us who celebrate Hanukkah get eight crazy nights of lighting the menorah, presents and parental guilt, but you know what we don't get? Literally hundreds of songs, television specials, or commercials about our December (sometimes November) holiday. Also, Christmas trees.

We're all for Santa Claus and Christmas miracles, but sometimes Jewish kids just want to feel the pop culture love too. Luckily, we've been given that gift on a few occasions. Put on your yarmulkes -- it's time to celebrate the eight best times Maccabees got a little love on TV.

1. The O.C.

All hail the greatest holiday of all: Chrismukkah! For four glorious seasons, we swooned over Seth Ezekiel Cohen's inventive day and the mad joy with which he celebrated it. Seth and his best friend/adopted brother Ryan Atwood never had to choose between celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah, and Jesus and Moses were always on their side to save them from »

A to Z‘s hopeful romantic Andrew has gotten the girl, but will he keep her?

After locking lips at the end of the pilot, Andrew and Zelda must now deal with a morning after of sorts as Episode 2 (airing this Thursday at 9:30/8:30c on NBC) picks up the very next day. And there’s a bit of a hiccup.

‘Halloween Haunting’ DVD Review

Stars: Richard Tyson, Sherri Eakin, Jeremy Ivy, Jeremy Sande, Corlandos Scott, Kara Riann Brown, Armand J. Campbell Jr., Randy Hicks, Shannon Box, Mark Tunstall | Written and Directed by Terron Parsons

Some DVD companies really do take the proverbial piss don’t they? Originally titled Hayride for it’s Us release, then originally solicited on Amazon as Pitchfork Murders, this throwback slasher hits DVD shelves across the UK as Halloween Haunting - complete with knock-off title treatment and cover than make this look, for all intents and purposes, as a new entry in the long-running Halloween franchise. It’s not. And there’s no way in hell it could Ever be compared to even the worst of that series!

On paper Halloween Haunting sounds like a great idea for a horror flick, blurring the lines between fact and fiction, urban legend and reality:

Before Sharknado there was Leprechaun…

26 September 2014 9:31 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

All the Warwick Davis Leprechaun movies are coming out in a new Blu Ray combo pack. The commentary tracks offer some memories of my two contributions to the guilty pleasure franchise. Here are a few more.

I grew up enjoying the absurdist humor of the Monty Python’s Flying Circus TV series. So why not Absurdist Cinema? I loved the 1941 Hellzapoppin’, an early iconic example. The concept of the mid ’90’s Leprechaun franchise was proudly ludicrous – pint sized Jason/Freddy/Chucky amalgam with an Irish twist terrorizes and kills most of the supporting cast. But he was never really scary. I decided to embrace the absurd and make it as much fun as the formula allowed.


Blue Rider Pictures, for whom I had made Night Of The Demons 2, were asked by Trimark to produce the third and, at that stage, the intended last in the series. Send the little guy to Vegas, »
