Christina Applegate Reveals She Had Ovaries and Fallopian Tubes Removed After Surviving Breast Cancer

11 October 2017 6:20 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Christina Applegate is doing everything she can to make sure she's there to see her daughter grow up. 

The 45-year-old actress, who had a double mastectomy in 2008 after being diagnosed with breast cancer, revealed to Today on Wednesday that she underwent surgery two weeks ago to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed to reduce her risk of further cancers. 

"My cousin passed away from ovarian cancer in 2008. I could prevent that,” Applegate shared. “That’s how I’ve taken control of everything. It’s a relief. That’s one other thing off the table. Now, let’s hope I don’t get hit by a bus.”

The actress revealed that she has the BRCA1 gene mutation, which increases her chances of developing cancer. Applegate fears that her 6-year-old daughter, Sadie, could have the gene as well, and has made adjustments to her lifestyle as a result.

Top 5 Football Films

6 September 2017 10:59 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

Grab your beer, set your lineups and welcome the new football season! Yes, thats right! The 2017-2018 NFL season is here and to help kickoff this season I’ve decided to do a top five dedicated to films about the sport. I have always loved the sport since I was a kid. From playing “Tecmo Bowl”, “Madden” just about every year and NFL Blitz to playing the real thing for a number of years. I love the sport almost as much as I love movies. When you put the two together you can get some really memorable films. Here’s my picks for top five football films.

Little Giants

It seems like each sport has at least one film made for children. Baseball has Sandlot, hockey has Mighty Ducks, basketball has Space Jam and so on. Well when it comes to football that film is Little Giants. The Little Giants »

Remembering Harold Sylvester’s “Griff” on Married with Children

9 July 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

He wasn’t there for every episode but when he was his character was nothing short of funny. As Al’s sidekick and one of his best friend’s Griff was kind given the short end of the stick every now and again but he was also made to be one of the funniest and most pathetic characters on the show. As Bud said he actually painted his ankles to make people think he could afford socks. But when he was Al’s side Griff was undeniably hilarious. It takes a special kind of friend to be sent to death row by their buddies

‘F is for Family’: The Darkest New Netflix Drama Worth Watching Is an Animated Comedy

19 June 2017 12:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The more prestige dramas there are, the harder it is to watch all of them. They’re long. They’re heavy. And for most content on Netflix, they’re far too loosely edited, which only makes them feel longer and heavier. So as the streaming giant prepares to release a 30-minute live-action comedy-drama hybrid this week (the much-anticipated “Glow”), it’s important to note Netflix has been killing it when making shorter dramatic content, with the most recent example being “F is for Family.”

And by killing it, I do mean death is but a heartbeat away in Bill Burr’s R-rated, animated take on “Married With Children.” It’s not so much that the ’70s-set family show deals with existential fears (like “BoJack Horseman”) or knocks off characters left and right (like most dramas these days), but that Burr’s fictionalized memoir of growing up deals with the era — and those living through it — as if though there’s no going back.

Literally, there isn’t (until Doc Brown gets around to inventing the DeLorean), but “F is for Family” approaches its period story as being stuck in time rather than nostalgic for a time gone by. Take, for instance, the opening credits, which show a young, happy, idealistic Frank Murphy (voiced by Burr) slowly transform into an old, frowning, pessimistic father of three. There’s no next step for Frank. His arc, literally embodied by flying up into the air and plummeting back to earth, is closed. He started with dreams, and he’s ended up here.

The show itself mimics this mentality with a nuanced thematic goal for its lead character. Frank struggles to regain the dreamy perspective he once had, but he’s only hoping to remember specific bits, rather than dramatically change his life. He’s unable to turn back the clock, and he knows it. So how does he survive in the now?

Season 2 focuses on his marriage and how the destruction of his dreams led him to de-prioritize his wife, Sue (Laura Dern). Throughout the 10 new episodes (released May 30, just in time for Emmy consideration), viewers are given telling flashbacks to how Frank and Sue met, and it’s unclear if we’re seeing the beginning and end of their marriage arc — witnessing its end in the present day and its beginning in the past — or if we’re meant to see why Frank might have an ounce of hope (and why the ever-patient Sue stays with him).

Without spoiling the result, the not knowing is what makes “F is for Family” Season 2 such intriguing TV. If the safety nets presumed to be included with 30-minute animated TV shows aren’t completely gone, they’re lowered far enough to be out of sight and out of mind. And the other plots of Season 2 only make this reflective character study all the more unsettling.

Kevin (Justin Long), the teenage son, gets into a spot where he’s technically the victim of statutory rape. While presented, at first, as the dream conquest of any pubescent boy, Kevin’s moral struggle and inability to talk about what happened is fleshed out well. Bill (Haley Reinhart), the youngest of three kids, learns a harsh life lesson too soon and resorts to operating outside the innocent moral parameters of boys his age. Last season, he saw things he can’t un-see (and neither can we), but this season finds Bill making seemingly minor choices that could permanently change the man he’ll become.

And then there’s Sue. In Season 1, there was a nagging lack of outside perspective when it came to how Frank treated his family. The series felt far too supportive, understanding, or, at the very least, permissive of an emotionally abusive father. But Season 2 is Sue’s season, and she’s had enough of her husband’s attitude. Fixing their relationship involves respecting Sue as a full partner, not just someone who handles the kids while Frank’s at work.

Read More: ‘The Mist’ Review: Stephen King TV Adaptation Crosses the Wrong Lines for the Wrong Reasons

Her determination to make Frank see her as an equal gives the new episodes a stronger sense of self-awareness as well as a darker edge. Frank has had a tough go of things, but that’s no longer a good enough reason to behave the way he does. “F is for Family” isn’t a comedy making light of horrific childhood moments; it’s a drama depicting how pain can be transferred from husband to wife, father to son, family member to family member.

While “Bloodline” and “House of Cards” may earn the accolades at awards shows and attention from critics, Netflix has been steadily churning out deeper, more challenging dramas in briefer installments. “F is for Family” illustrates why it’s important to see series for what they are, rather than through the genre lens thrust upon them. But it’s also a show that benefits from unveiling its drama in shorter, 30-minute chunks, rather than stretching out episodes to fit the hour-long standard perpetuated by the industry.

As more and more scripted series are produced, hopefully more are allowed to be told in whatever format and whatever length is best. Animated series have long usurped expectations, from “The Simpsons” to “South Park,” but it’s time all series follow suit and upend these outdated genre assumptions.

The Five Best Movie Roles of Ed O’Neill’s Career

1 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

You might recognize him as Al Bundy from “Married with Children” or Jay Pritchett from “Modern Family”, but the truth is that Ed O’Neill has actually held a few memorable movie roles as well despite several of them being fairly brief. The main reason why he’s so recognizable is that in in the 1990s he became the working man’s icon by portraying his role as Al Bundy, a man that didn’t have much, wasn’t overly intelligent, and had to deal with the constant struggle of a life that he’d never wanted for himself. Despite his fame on the small screen

Exclusive: The Greatest Coincidences That Connect ‘Lowriders’ Star Theo Rossi’s Biggest Roles

12 May 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

“My whole career, in a way, has been very guided by almost like these weird coincidences,” Theo Rossi says, explaining to Et how so many experiences in his career have intertwined on his path to success.

Many fans know the 41-year-old self-described “character actor” from his breakout role as Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz on the hit motorcycle drama Sons of Anarchy. “I had to do three extra roles to get a SAG card,” Rossi says about his early career. “If there was ever a book written about going through the process, I’ve gone through the whole process, from having, like, one line on Malcolm in the Middle to doing a couple episodes of some small show …and then, obviously, my life changing with Sons of Anarchy.”

In truth, Rossi’s experience with Soa didn’t just change his life because it made him famous, but because it’s one of a chain of personal and professional »

Flashback: Ellen DeGeneres on Impact of the ‘Ellen’ Coming Out Episode

27 April 2017 8:20 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

“I guess what I'm trying to say is...I did get the joke about the toaster oven.”

It’s been 20 years since Ellen Morgan, the former TV alter ego of Ellen DeGeneres, said that famous line in “The Puppy Episode,” when it first aired on April 30, 1997. Of course, this precluded her infamous declaration, “I’m gay,” to the people waiting to depart on flight 316 to Pittsburgh. In the hall of fame, alongside the Mash series finale and this year’s Oscars broadcast, sits an episode of Ellen we now remember as a groundbreaking risk with a lasting impact on TV diversity.

Before starting the show’s fourth season, DeGeneres decided the time was right for her character to come out. More than just a creative decision for the series, it was also to coincide with her own announcement to the public. On April 14, the longtime stand-up comedian gave an interview to Time, appearing on the »

It Came From The Tube: Mr. Boogedy (1986)

23 April 2017 12:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I was a teenager when ABC’s The Disney Sunday Movie aired Mr. Boogedy (1986), a haunted house tale, and I had no interest in seeing it. I was beyond such childish ventures; my horror was blood and guts and sex and probably more blood. But teenaged Scott didn’t bother to think that every horror fan starts somewhere, and at every age too – and some gateway horror is geared towards nudging the kid to the edge of the pool instead of throwing him in. If you’re looking for some fun horror water wings, Mr. Boogedy will do the trick.

Originally airing on April 20th, Mr. Boogedy did well enough against CBS’ 60 Minutes and NBC’s Punky Brewster/Silver Spoons lineups to garner a sequel the following year, Bride of Boogedy. As the ‘80s progressed, The Disney Sunday Movie didn’t quite have the same cache due to the rise of VCRs and video stores. »

First Pictures of The Gorgeous Ladies And Wrestling From Netflix’s ‘Glow’

I mentioned a while back that Netflix was working on a series called G.L.O.W. which is based on the actual female wrestling company of the same name.  You might remember the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling back in the 80s.   There were a couple of times these ladies were in the mainstream.  Once they appeared on Married with Children and there’s even a story around some of them trying to fool around with Donald Trump.   Needless to say G.L.O.W. eventually shut its doors but was obviously enough to leave an impression of some significant creators nearly 30 years later.
