'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: George, Cristina and Izzie Return
"It seems like five seconds ago we were the interns hiding in the tunnels." - Alex Karev

Three hundred episodes. Take a moment and let that sink in. Three hundred episodes. Few American dramas have achieved that. Dallas, Knots Landing, CSI, NCIS, and ER (whose 331 episodes over 15 seasons now seem within reach) come to mind. But with its 300th episode, "Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story?," Grey's Anatomy enters a very elite club. Even better? This milestone hour was a nostalgic tribute to the characters whose stories inspired countless people to pursue medicine, saved many real lives because someone saw that condition on the show, and changed the landscape of network television forever.

30 Reasons You Shouldn't Apologize For Having a Crush on Alec Baldwin

30 Reasons You Shouldn't Apologize For Having a Crush on Alec Baldwin
Why do you think the characters in Clueless called hot guys "Baldwins"? Back in the '80s and '90s, Alec and his brothers were the equivalent of today's Hemsworths when it came to serving up sexiness as a family. But Alec . . . oh, Alec. That strong jaw. The dark hair. Those piercing blue eyes that could just cut right through you. On shows like Knots Landing and films like Malice, The Hunt For Red October, Glengarry Glen Ross, and even Beetlejuice, Alec Baldwin was it. I refuse to sit here and pretend that he doesn't give off "daddy" vibes and that I don't still find him attractive (when he's not dressed up as Donald Trump or voicing a cartoon baby) - because, yes, his hair may be a shimmery shade of gray now, but those baby blues can still stare right into your soul. These 30 photos are all the reasons

Here's a Photo of Young Alec Baldwin That Looks a Hell of a Lot Like Ryan Gosling
Image Source: Getty / The Life Picture Collection I was just in the middle of putting together a really great roundup of hot, nostalgic Alec Baldwin photos when I stumbled upon this treasure from 1985. Immediately, I was overcome with a rush of emotions: not only does Alec Baldwin - who is shown hanging out on the set of Knots Landing when he was about 27 years old - look really f*cking hot, but he also looks remarkably like Ryan Gosling, who also happens to be really f*cking hot (photo of Ryan below for reference). How did I get lucky enough to find this gem? I plan on printing it out, hanging it at my desk, and staring longingly at it for the rest of my life. I encourage you to do the same.

Zsa Zsa Gabor Passes Away at 99
As 2016 winds down, the entertainment community has lost yet another beloved icon.

Was that twist at the end of 'The Flash' season finale a good idea?

Was that twist at the end of 'The Flash' season finale a good idea?
A review of The Flash season finale — but mainly thoughts on the final scene — coming up just as soon as I watch Transformers in 4D... Even if the last two minutes of "The Race of His Life" had been less surprising and status quo-altering, I don't know that I'd have much to say about the rest of it. As discussed a few weeks ago, Zoom turned out to be a much less interesting rip-off of Reverse-Flash, killing off Henry immediately after a (great) episode that allowed Barry to get over his grief for his mother was a pretty trite way to generate drama and, as Barry himself noted tonight, keep him from ever feeling really happy(*), and there was no tension, surprise, or emotion to most of what happened as Team Flash took down Zoom once and for all. There was no way Joe was going to be stranded on
