Teen Witch (1989)
Berman died early Friday morning due to complications from Alzheimer’s Disease at his home in Bell Canyon, Calif., his publicist confirmed to Variety.
The Grammy winner and Emmy-nominated actor was one of the most successful stand-up comedians of the 1950s and ’60s. His 1959 live record, “Inside Shelley Berman,” was the first comedy album to be certified gold (with more than 500,000 sales) and was the first non-musical recording to win a Grammy Award. Two other albums, “Outside Shelley Berman” and “The Edge of Shelley Berman,” also went gold.
Berman was the first stand-up comic to perform at Carnegie Hall. He appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” more than 20 times and was a guest on shows hosted by Steve Allen, Jack Paar, Dinah Shore, Perry Como, Andy Williams, and Dean Martin.
10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Movie Teen Witch
As a kid, I couldn’t have been more primed to see 1985’s Teen Wolf, a movie that seemed positively made just for me. I was obsessed with star Michael J. Fox, first from his TV work as Alex P. Keaton on Family Ties and then as Marty McFly in Back to the Future, to this day my favorite movie of all time. Werewolves have always been my movie monster of choice, even as a boy of just eight years old. Combining Michael J. Fox with werewolves—in a high school comedy, no less, then (and possibly still) one of my favorite film genres—seemed a foolproof recipe for a classic. And, in its way, Teen Wolf is a classic: a movie that’s probably as good as it can be while still being far from great. It’s sweet, it means well,

6.2 Hostage Situation
I was down on the first bunch of episodes in the previous season of Girls. I found the comedy too broad and the tone unreal. However, last season regained its footing about halfway into its run to become one of the show’s best.
I mention this because, although the final season has plenty of time to turn things around, as of right now… hoo-boy. If I thought that the season premiere got a little too goofy (I did), I didn’t know what goofy was until I saw Hostage Situation. But it’s actually worse than that because at least the premiere was clearly trying to be funny sometimes and dramatic at others.
Girls Season 6 Episode 2 appears to suggest that the impossible has, in fact, happened. With a disastrous trip upstate, Hannah lays out some harsh truths for Marnie.
Meanwhile, back in the city, Shosh has some realizations of her own about her relationship with Jessa and her friendships.
Some of Girls' best moments take place when said girls are out of the city, thrust into new and strange environments. This was the case for Hannah with the Girls Season 6 Premiere, when she was in Montauk for the majority of the season opener.
Similarly, "Hostage Situation" found Hannah reluctantly accompanying Marnie and Desi on their secret "jaunt" to Poughkeepsie. Fittingly, that was where Marnie and Desi's relationship reached its (hopefully) final breaking point.
The revelation that Desi is actually a drug addict was, in itself, not terribly surprising. Desi has always had a
It was all hearts and balloons when the gals showed up to an event on Monday night. Blake looked super festive in a SemSem blue mini-dress with red and white hearts all over it, and paired the style with a red sequin Chanel bag and black studded heels.
To top it all off, the 29-year-old actress had her hair done up in the shape of a heart.

When a rogue scientist discovers an immense egg in the dark recesses of a rainforest he thinks hes stumbled across his fame and fortune. But little does he know that it belongs to a terrifying hybrid monster, known only as the Piranhaconda (a moniker only mentioned once in the Entire film and dismissed as a stupid name!). Soon the beast is on the loose, hunting for its unborn child, rampaging through the country and destroying everything in its path in a mass of CGI-enhanced gory-glory.
A killer-creature B-movie from the Roger Corman staple, Piranhaconda is yet another made for Syfy TV movie suprisingly this one comes from director Jim Wynorski, who is well-known in the horror community for successfully mixing T&A and horror.
