Idina Menzel Sings National Anthem at Super Bowl (Video)

51 minutes ago

Two of the last examples of monoculture, Frozen and the Super Bowl, collided Sunday night when Elsa herself, Idina Menzel, sang the National Anthem before the game. Menzel sang the song intercut with the traditional shots of soldiers as the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds flew overhead - she previously sung the National Anthem for the 2014 Mlb All-Star Game. John Legend sang "America the Beautiful" before Menzel took the stage, accompanying himself on the piano for a soulful rendition of the song. Thankfully, no one burst into a clever parody version of "Let It Go," and Marshawn Lynch was not See more »

"I couldn't grow up," the cherub-faced little boy says See more »

Red Band Society Recap: Get Guilty

1 hour ago

If Red Band Society hadn't gotten canceled halfway through its first season, this show would have eventually developed an insurmountable structural problem: the main characters would always have to be just sick enough that they can't go home, but not so sick that the show becomes too damn depressing for a mainstream soap opera starring teenagers. The only alternative would have been the core cast members having to either leave after their characters had recovered (a move the producers would probably like to avoid, as very few shows teen shows actually let their characters graduate, à la Friday Night Lights or Degrassi)...or, uh, die See more »
