Theater Review: A Month in the Country Whizzes Right By

just now | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s said that Chekhov was always trying to get the Moscow Art Theater to produce Ivan Turgenev’s neglected classic A Month in the Country instead of his own new plays. Was this homage, self-deprecation, or payment of a debt? So much of what we find great in Uncle Vanya, The Three Sisters, The Cherry Orchard, and the rest of the holy canon finds its origins in the earlier work. It’s uncanny, really: A Month in the Country, completed in 1850, already contemplates, as Chekhov would a generation later, the collapse of Russia’s idle aristocracy amid new money and peasant awakening. It pioneers a form of comedy we now call Chekhovian, in which no one is happy. It even investigates the intersection of those two ideas. And yet Chekhov lifted more than just Turgenev’s genre and themes. Broad swaths of plot are appropriated, whole casts of archetypes redeployed. »

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The AP is reporting that Missy Elliott will make a surprise (not anymore!) appearance during Katy Perry's halftime performance at the Super Bowl this Sunday. An anonymous source familiar with the show's plans spilled the beans shortly after Perry gave a press conference about her act, which will also include Lenny Kravitz. Perry told media earlier Thursday that she "wanted to bring someone back. A throwback of sorts that definitely needed some more shine. All I can say is it will be a real female fun night," according to Mashable. "It's a bit old school. When this person enters the stage and you hear the first ring of the chord I think jaws will drop and faces will melt." »

Scandal Recap: Olivia Pope Is a Hostage

1 hour ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Murder and torture are mainstays on Scandal. But it's still the kind of steamy drama you watch curled up on your couch with a glass of red wine in one hand and your phone teed up with sassy tweets about Scott Foley's abs in the other. Not this week. From the How to Get Away with Murder-like time jumps (we see you, Shonda) to the Homeland-style setting, this wasn't the Scandal we've grown to love. It was something new, something darker and far more sinister than Pope & Associates has ever tried to fix. Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), the woman »

Parenthood Series Finale Cry-Cap: Teary Eyes, Full Hearts

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you’re just joining this recap, you may have very recently finished watching the final episode of Parenthood—the very, very last one ever. You probably need a minute to recover. Take that minute. Wipe away the ludicrously large tears still streaming down those cheeks. Breathe.Okay. Now let’s talk. Oh, wait, we’re still crying. It really is hard to stop, isn’t it? Most fans probably came to this episode pretty, shall we say, lubed up in advance. Most of us were well prepared to spend an hour wailing over the loss of our Bravermans while tossing Kleenexes haphazardly around the room just like Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally. We probably would have bawled like wee babes if the entire episode had turned out to be an hour-long installment of Behind the Music: The Ashes of Rome Story. Fortunately for humanity, that is not what happened. »

If you look at Padma Lakshmi's latest Instagram picture, you would see one heckuva bikini bod. If you read her caption, you'll focus on something completely different. The 44-year-old TV host posted a sexy #ThrowbackThursday photo of herself flaunting her enviable figure in a tiny two-piece while in mid-stride as she ran along the ocean on the beach, and at first glance you'd think this snapshot was from a magazine, but then you read the caption she wrote. "My friend claims it looks like I have a penis in this pic. One guess as to whether he's gay or not... #onhismind #tbt." Lol! And suddenly, all eyes go down there.

Scandal Just Delivered One of The Most Heartbreaking & Heart-Racing Episodes of TV We've Ever Seen

2 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Have we all recovered yet from what we're now calling our Great National Heart Attack? Sure, the pains we're feeling could be attributed to the large amount of Chipotle we stress-ingested at record speed as we watched tonight's crazyballs winter premiere of Scandal, but we're tempted to blame them entirely on that hour of watching Olivia Pope attempt to escape her kidnappers, only to have all our hopes and dreams completely shattered beyond belief not once, not twice, but at least three times. We're actually struggling to breathe, let alone type, but we'll do our best. Basically, that was Kerry Washington's Emmy performance. She was phenomenal. Hell, we would even give her an »

Grey's Anatomy Recap: April Suffers a Crisis of Faith

It may have been a while since Grey's Anatomy aired its winter finale, but don't worry - the doctors of Grey Sloane Memorial still relate way too much to the traumas that get wheeled in to the ER. April (Sarah Drew) and Jackson (Jesse Williams) were still reeling after learning that their unborn baby has a fatal condition, and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) was as hot-and-cold about her relationship with Derek (Patrick Dempsey) as ever. However, she may have found a new Person. Or, well, a suitable stand-in, anyway. Also, as ever, Dr. Herman (Geena Davis) is not here for anyone's Bs. »
