I was about 8 years old the first time I saw the inside of a nursing home. This wasn't a senior apartment complex or an assisted living facility. It was a depressing place with fluorescently lit rooms for sleeping and a television room for visiting. And it was full of people that time forgot and especially people who forgot time.
My step-grandfather had Alzheimer's and for some reason my parents thought bringing a strange little girl to visit him would lift his spirits as if he wasn't confused enough.
I'll never forget the moment when I walked through the doors into the waiting room. An elderly woman who I had never seen before in my life bent down until she met me at eye level, smiled, and said, "I remember you when you were just a baby."
Aside from being just as confused as she was, »

Straight-to-dvd distribution is usually a pretty good indication that a horror movie isn't worth your time, but “The Taking of Deborah Logan” — produced by Bryan Singer and currently streaming on Netflix — is one of the finer exceptions.

When FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show opened its gates for admission last week, the frightening figure most everyone walked away talking about was Twisty the Clown. But in Episode 2 (airing Wednesday, 10/9c), bitchy rich kid Dandy Mott, whom we’ve only seen sitting in the audience with his mother Gloria, reveals unsettling quirks of his own.
TVLine invited Finn Wittrock – whose previous TV credits include Masters of Sex and All My Children — to take us inside Dandy’s well-coiffed, un-well head, affording us all reason to soon be very, very afraid.

If you’d never seen Revenge before, Sunday’s season premiere was a pretty good time to join the party — and not just because every character literally recapped (out loud) what they’ve been up to for the past three years.

This morning, Amazon released the entire first season of “Transparent,” a great new dramedy starring Jeffrey Tambor as a transgender woman coming out to her family and beginning her full gender transition at an advanced age. I already published my review, as well as an interview with Tambor, and now I have an interview with the show’s creator, “Six Feet Under” and “United States of Tara” veteran Jill Soloway. It’s a deep dive into the world of trans politics — including the question of whether it’s ideal to have a cis male (aka someone born a man) like Tambor playing this role — how Soloway’s professional past and family history shaped the series, the prospect of people watching all 10 episodes at once, and more. As I said in my review, it may take me a little time to finish the rest of the season, given what a busy »

Digital Spy presents Friends Week - seven days of special features celebrating 20 years of the Us sitcom that became a cultural phenomenon.
We're celebrating the anniversary of Friends all week, and outside of the Big Six, one of the show's most prolific characters has to be Gunther. The barista with hair "brighter than the sun", as Rachel put it, won a place in our hearts with his awkward shuffles and unrequited love for Miss Green.
We got the man behind the hair - James Michael Tyler - on the phone for a natter about what it was actually like being in Friends, a shock coffee-related revelation, his best Gunther moments and where he thinks the Central Perk icon is now...
It's 20 years since Friends started and ten since it ended, but do you still get people yelling 'Gunther' at you?

The last person who thought Rosie O’Donnell would ever return to “The View” was Rosie O’Donnell. In the spring of 2007, the talk show host opted not to renew her contract with the gabfest created by Barbara Walters, even though her controversial opinions gave the program a ratings boost. Then, shortly before her departure, she got caught in a spectacular fight on live TV with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that started over the Iraq War, but quickly turned personal — and went viral.
“The day it happened, I was definitely crying,” O’Donnell recalls. “I got my stuff and walked out.” She phoned her longtime publicist, Cindi Berger, telling her: “‘I’m never going back. You have to call and tell them. Call the lawyer. No matter what they say, I will not go back.”
But this is daytime TV after all. And in a plot twist worthy of “All My Children, »
