John Kasich Interview on The Daily Show Was Great but Who Watched It?
The issue with John Kasich that’s always prevented him from being more popular than he should be is that he’s kind of boring. It’s that simple. Of all the Republican candidates during the 2016 election he was probably the most “qualified” for the job of President of the United States. But this was the pervading issue the entire time: It’s as if he was the little runt of the litter who kept trying to get a word in and no one really listened to him when he finally did. It’s like the guy was bullied but not on purpose. And

The Voice Season 12 Top 12 Performances Are One Big Blur of Sound
While the The Voice Season 12 Top 12 Performances, were all basically good, I found the overall feel the show a little dull. When nearly everyone is getting the same notes, cut out the rifts to “sound more emotional,” the result is that all the music starts sounding the same. It’s like no matter the original genre everyone sounded like they were on a country music station! Do I blame that on guest mentor Shania Twain? No. The Voice Season 12 has been telling singer after singer to do less rifts since the beginning of the season. I’m not

“That Gal” Actor of the Week: Andrea Martin Aka Aunt Voula from “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”
I bring up the name Andrea Martin because it was recently announced she’ll be starring in a new television series that has none other than Tina Fey at the helm. Fey herself isn’t in the show but she’s got her fingerprints all over it. “I have loved Andrea Martin from afar for so many years,” Fey wrote for the cover blurb of Martin’s 2014 autobiography, “but now, after reading this funny and heroically honest book, I would like to take things to the ‘next level’ and marry her.” Instead, she hired her to play Carol, the overbearing mother of a

Great Trailers, Movies That Stunk: Watchmen
I you haven’t seen the movie Watchmen, don’t even bother. It’s just not good, period. However, this is a movie that had an amazing trailer. People were completely jacked up to see this movie and rightfully so. Once stuidos launched the trailer in 2008, they had to print almost 1 million copies of Watchmen trade collection to meet demand. Too bad the movie itself didn’t nearly live up to expectations. Even the synopsis was awesome: When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the outlawed but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill

After a one-day strike in Atlanta, the producers of NBC's Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge have come to terms with Iatse for a contract covering some 200 of the show's crew members.
