Relentless and utterly addictive, Sons of Anarchy: Season 5 has now powered onto Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
From the creative genius of Kurt Sutter, Sons of Anarchy is a dark and gritty thriller with comedic undertones.

The club is equally determined to protect their ruthless and illegally thriving arms business, »

With his penchant for poetry, Todd Christensen never fit the Raiders's renegade mold. But that didn't keep him from becoming one of the team's best all-time tight ends. A five-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time Super Bowl winner, Christensen died from complications during liver transplant surgery Wednesday. He was 57. Christensen's son, Toby Christensen, said his father died at Intermountain Medical Center near his home in Alpine, Utah. He had been waiting for 10 months for a donor liver. After a stellar career at running back for Byu from 1974-77, Christensen was a second-round pick for the Dallas Cowboys in the 1978 NFL draft. »

Katey Sagal used to be unrecognizable when she wasn't in Peg Bundy mode. That is most certainly no longer the case. "Now, it's more about Gemma. I did used to get it all the time, but no so much anymore," the actress—who was previously best known for playing big-haired Peg on Married With Children and now provides the at-times-steely heart of Sons of Anarchy as the queen of old ladies, Gemma Teller—told Billboard in a recent interview. And even though SoA's ever-darkening subject matter could be what's keeping the show off the podium come Emmys time, Sagal is fiercely proud and protective of the FX hit. "I believe that as violent as the »

As a kid who grew up watching "The Simpsons" even though I wasn't supposed to (I was also forbidden from tuning in to the evil, evil "Married with Children" or basically anything else that aired on Fox), Mrs. Krabappel was a regular fixture in my life all through my growing-up years. Which is why I was saddened to hear last week that Marcia Wallace, who voiced the bitter, chain-smoking elementary school teacher for more than two decades, had died at the age of 70. And I'm far from the only one: in addition to everyone else who loved and enjoyed her work »

Divine Intervention: Schwarz Resurrects a Trailblazer for Loving Tribute
As gay culture becomes more normalized and commodified into the fabric of the mainstream zeitgeist, the importance of remembering the career of the talented Divine seems paramount. Documentarian Jeffrey Schwarz manages to evoke the larger than life star with a comprehensive and lovingly made homage with I Am Divine, an effort to explore his life through a variety of interviews and archival footage. For those familiar with his output, there’s certainly nothing revelatory to be experienced here, and while it serves as a wonderful preface to Divine’s notable body of work, it’s equally enjoyable to revisit the infamous, intriguing, and incomparable career of a star whose life ended much too soon.

To mark the release of Modern Family Season 4 on October 14th we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.
Revolving around three interrelated families living in Los Angeles, Modern Family is a witty, feel-good and refreshingly original take on 21st Century family life, with arguably television’s finest ensemble cast. Starring Ed O’Neill (Married with Children), Julie Bowen (Boston Legal), Ty Burrell (The Incredible Hulk), Eric Stonestreet (Bad Teacher) and Sofia Vergara (Four Brothers), the show spotlights three sprawling families held together by recently re-married patriarch Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill), who introduced his hot, young, feisty wife Gloria (Vergara) to the frenzied family dynamics. Together the three families offer a candid and repeatedly hilarious insight into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family.
Season 4 opens with a bang when Gloria announces she is pregnant. As expected, this news causes a wave of reaction throughout the family, »
So far, "Sons of Anarchy" Season 6 has been an interesting one for Katey Sagal's matriarch of the family and club, Gemma Teller Morrow. Between acting as a surrogate mother to her grandchildren while Tara (Maggie Siff) was imprisoned and putting her life with Clay (Ron Perlman) behind her, there seems to be more on Gemma's plate than ever before. There's also her new world, which includes her relationship with Nero (Jimmy Smits).
In a conference call, Sagal discussed several things about the show, her character and even life as an actress.
The school shooting that occurred in the premiere, and the subsequent fallout, are a natural topic that sends shock waves throughout the cast of characters.
Katey echoes the importance of the event as a plot point, saying that it sets up the entire season and "involves everyone's ideas about guns." "It's a big statement about the mishandling of »
TV season is upon us yet again, which means that it’s time for some exciting new programs…and some rehashes of old favorites. Yes, reboots and remakes are about as familiar as commercials on television these days. Some like 90210, Hawaii Five-o, and Dallas have met with fairly hefty success, whereas others were gone in about as long as it takes to change the channel! This year we’re welcoming a revamped version of the long running ’60s detective drama Ironside to the small screen. We have high hopes for the program, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that it doesn’t go the way of these 10 failed remakes. Read on to see how these short-lived shows rank by number of episodes that actually made it to air!

An autopsy on Lisa Robin Kelly was completed Saturday, but the cause of her death will not be known for at least another two months. It will take that long for toxicology results to come back from the lab for the That '70s Show star, a coroner's office spokeswoman tells CNN. Kelly died in her sleep Wednesday night after voluntarily checking herself into a treatment facility earlier in the week to confront "the addiction problems that have plagued her these past few years," her agent, Craig Wyckoff, told People on Thursday. "I spoke to her on Monday, and she was hopeful and confident, »

Lisa Robin Kelly, who was most well-known for her role as Eric Forman’s older sister on “That ’70s Show,” died Wednesday at a California rehab facility. She was 43. According to news reports, Kelly checked herself in to the facility earlier in the week to deal with an alcohol problem. The troubled actress has been arrested at least four times in the past three years for DUI and spousal abuse charges.
“Unfortunately Lisa Robin Kelly passed away last evening,” her agent said. I spoke to her on Monday and she was hopeful and confident, looking forward to putting this part of her life behind her.”
The actress’ cause of death has not been issued yet and no death certificate has been issued either.
Kelly had voluntarily checked herself into a treatment facility earlier this week where she was “battling the addiction problems that have plagued her these past few years, »

Lisa Robin Kelly, the actress who played Eric Forman’s sister Laurie on That ‘70s Show, has died. She was 43. Prior to playing the big-haired Laurie, Kelly appeared on a number of other TV shows, from The Net small-screen adaptation to Days Of Our Lives and Married... With Children. She also acted in movies like Jawbreaker and Amityville: Dollhouse. Her five-year stint as Laurie was her longest gig—even after her character was written off the show following the third season (though she was invited back for a couple of episodes in the fifth and sixth seasons).

Falling in love with a television show can be very much like entering a relationship with a single parent. Initially, you get to know the characters and how they behave. You learn their catchphrases and find that time together once a week -or if on Netflix for 8 straight hours- comforting and protective. Then, after time they introduce their bratty precocious child who ruins everything. You struggle to look past the little tyke, despite their sudden and obnoxious insistence of being the center of attention. You long to embrace what you once could not imagine being without. We have all had the television show where a woefully obnoxious character is introduced and while they remain on the screen you have an incredibly difficult time reconnecting with the thing you once loved.
To take a quick look at where the love went wrong, I have complied a list of ten characters that really killed the connection. »

1. Angelina Jolie Reveals She Had a Double Mastectomy
In an op-ed piece for the The New York Times, Oscar winning actress and mother-of-six Angelina Jolie reveals that she recently underwent a preventive double mastectomy.
In the article, the 37-year-old actress goes into great detail about how her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, fought breast cancer for almost a decade before dying from the disease at 56 years old.
After being told by doctors that she carried a "faulty gene" that increases the chances of breast and ovarian cancer -- with an estimated 87 percent risk of breast cancer and 50 percent risk of the latter -- Jolie decided to be proactive and have a double mastectomy.
Here are some excerpts from the article:
"Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy »
Sons of Anarchy has always had a great cast no matter how small the parts became. Somehow, the best person for the job was always found and they delivered a performance that went beyond any expectations you might have had. Just look at Katey Sagal, who I grew up watching on Married With Children. She’s practically unrecognizable in her current role as Samcro matriarch Gemma. And it’s the same with every actor on the show. If you’ve seen them elsewhere, well, you haven’t seen them quite the way they are now. And because of the transformations they undergo, it’s always exciting to see new additions to the cast and wondering just how they’ll change to fit Kurt Sutter’s vision.

The news source reports that Dr. Brothers' longtime publicist Sanford Brokaw confirmed the news on Monday.
In addition to her widely published column, Dr. Brothers also paved the way for television advice shows like Dr. Phil when in 1958 she became a licensed psychologist and hosted her own TV show on a local NYC station.
Dr. Brothers was also the author of What Every Woman Should Know About Men and Widowed -- the latter of which was written following the death of husband Milton Brothers in 1989. The couple was married for forty years and had one child, Lisa.
According to the AP, Dr. Brothers first gained fame by becoming the only woman to ever win the top prize on the game show The $64,000 Question. Joyce made many guest appearances over the years »
