On this day in pop culture history: Michael J. Fox said goodbye to ‘Spin City’

24 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

16 years ago today, Mike Flaherty bid adieu to City Hall and Michael J. Fox said goodbye to Spin City. It was the actor’s final episode as a regular on the ABC sitcom after playing the lead role since the show premiered in 1996. Fox had revealed to the public in 1998 his battle with Parkinson’s disease. As his symptoms worsened, during Spin City’s fourth season, Fox, then 38 years old, announced he would be leaving the show at the end of the season to spend more time with his family and to raise money for Parkinson's research and awareness. Spin City lasted another two seasons after Fox’s departure, with Charlie Sheen as the new lead. Fox did return for appearances in a few episodes in the final season. In that May 24, 2000 episode, the season 4 finale, Mike Flaherty fired himself to save everyone else on the mayor’s staff in the midst of a scandal, »

DVD Review – The Secret of My Success (1987)

4 April 2016 12:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Secret of My Success, 1987.

Directed by Herbert Ross.

Starring Michael J. Fox, Helen Slater, Richard Jordan, Margaret Whitton, John Pankow, Fred Gwynne.

Synopsis:

A college kid from Kansas moves to New York and blags his way to the top of a multinational corporation, falling in love along the way.

For a few years during the mid-to-late 1980s you couldn’t really get away from Michael J. Fox as the fresh-faced young actor seemed to be everywhere, appearing in several successful movies alongside his regular TV role in sitcom Family Ties. But in between his breakout movie role in Back to the Future and critical acclaim in more serious material like the Vietnam drama Casualties of War there was The Secret of My Success, a comedy that doesn’t always get the same recognition as Fox’s other hits but is probably worth another look if it has been a while. »

What Happened When Our Favorite TV Shows Got Real

1 April 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Excuse us while we try to emotionally deal with that Fresh Prince of Bel-Air episode where Will's dad leaves (again.) We can quote it word-for-word, and it's pretty much a guarantee that anytime we see it on TV, we're going to re-watch it and text all of our friends about it. Fresh-Prince isn't the only show littered with sad sitcom moments that get you right in the feels. From Saved by the Bell to Family Ties, there are tons of teachable moments scattered throughout our favorite throwback series. Some are campy, and some are heart-wrenching. Heck, there's a Punky Brewster episode where Cherie gets trapped in a fridge and needs CPR to save her »

Agent Carter's Bridget Regan: Dottie Helping Out Peggy Is 'Play, Play, Play!'

16 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When last we tuned into Agent Carter, the titular hero had been freshly impaled on a piece of rebar, leading her bleeding all over Sousa’s sofa. As a result, Peggy needs to find a fellow femme trained in espionage who can accompany Jarvis to a lavish gala where Whitney Frost will be in attendance.

Cue the return of Dottie Underwood, who’s as pleased as punch to see her gal pal Peggy come to her for a favor — especially one that will get her sprung from her Ssr confines, for this Tuesday’s double-episode outing (ABC, 9/8c).

3rd Rock from the Sun Turns 20, Plus 10 Other Roles That Led Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Stardom

13 January 2016 8:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Twenty years ago this week, an oddball NBC sitcom introduced viewers to a family of space aliens who, in the grand tradition of Alf, Mork and Mindy and My Favorite Martian, were attempting to hide out on Earth. It was a silly premise, but 3rd Rock from the Sun ended up outlasting those other three shows, running a full six seasons. And we can credit its success to a talented comedic cast that included John Lithgow, Kristen Johnston, French Stewart and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who was only 14 when the show premiered. Seriously, look at him - babyfaced and long-haired and oh-so »

25 Quentin Tarantino Characters You Didn’t Know Were Related

9 January 2016 8:30 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

A Band Apart

Tarantino has openly discussed the idea of his characters crossing over: despite the fact that he has two universes in his films (three, actually when you count the Elmore Leonard world of Jackie Brown) there are a couple who transcend even those limits. The Wolf – played by Harvey Keitel – is one (sadly he’s also able to advertise car insurance) and Earl McGraw and his son can too.

Don’t pick too hard at those rules; Tarantino made them up. But at least it means we might get to see The Wolf again at some point.

So what about the other characters who cross-over or are related by blood across films? Family ties are obviously important for Tarantino (they’re a good foundation for vengeance stories after all), so it should come as no surprise that they criss-cross the timelines of his movie universe (and indeed beyond »
