Created by Susan Harris, who had also created the controversial but critically acclaimed sitcom “Soap,” “The Golden Girls” was unlike anything America had seen before on TV. It centered on four older women living in one house in Miami, who, despite the gray in their hair (some of it camouflaged with dye), still had plenty of zest for life, sex, and troublemaking.

Based on their performances on “Maude” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” Rue McClanahan and Betty White were cast first. Director Jay Sandrich

This American Horror Story Theory Still Makes a Scary Amount of Sense

  • BuzzSugar
Each season of American Horror Story tells a new horror story that is seemingly unrelated to the others, but Roanoke has a potentially unique tie to the seasons before it. Haven't quite figured it out? There is a new, intriguing theory, courtesy of Reddit user Ah_Salmon_Skin_Roll, that tries to explain it. First of all, we know for a fact that each season is secretly connected to each other because creator Ryan Murphy told us so. "They're all connected," he told Entertainment Weekly in 2015. "There's definitely a rhyme or a reason and a connectedness to all of these seasons . . . They're all very separate but there are clues every season that we're now telling you how the different worlds are intertwined." So how exactly will this be done? Here's a theory: each episode is a callback to a specific season. Episode one is Murder House, given that it's all

Actress and Comedian Anne Meara, Mother of Ben Stiller, Dies at 85
Anne Meara, the Emmy- and Tony-nominated comedian long paired personally and professionally with Jerry Stiller and the mother of actor-director Ben Stiller, died Saturday, her husband and son told the Associated Press. She was 85.

No further details have been revealed. A statement released to the AP said Jerry Stiller was Meara’s “husband and partner in life.” The statement added, “The two were married for 61 years and worked together almost as long.”

Stiller and Meara were a top comedy act in the 1960s, appearing on “The Ed Sullivan Show” 36 times. The two were members of the improv group the Compass Players, which later became Second City.

Although Meara had converted to Judaism when the couple got married, Stiller & Meara’s material centered on the differences in their ethnic backgrounds, epitomized by their signature “Hershey Horowitz/Mary Elizabeth Doyle” routines.

In 2010 the couple had their own Yahoo comedy series, “Stiller & Meara,

5 April DVD Titles You Should Know About, Including 'Chinatown,' 'A Trip To The Moon' & 'Girl On A Motorcycle'

While the future of home entertainment may be rapidly moving towards a digital streaming-led future, we can't be the only movie nerds who still love owning a physical copy of something. Sure, BluRay and DVD might be scratchable, easily lost and adorned by terrible box art, but there's something about the feeling of finding an undiscovered gem in the depths of a store, or getting a rarity in the post, that doesn't quite compare to clicking and watching something on Netflix.

As such, starting with this column, every month we're going to pick out five BluRays or DVDs new to the market that no self-respecting cinephile's shelves could do without. Some are shiny new versions of stone-cold classics, some are obscurities, some might even be brand new releases (although less often: those are covered pretty well elsewhere). Read on for more.

Rue McClanahan obituary

American actor best known as the man-hungry Blanche in The Golden Girls

As the insecure, man-hungry widow Blanche Devereaux, the actor Rue McClanahan, who has died aged 76, was the linchpin of the humour in the hugely successful Us television sitcom The Golden Girls, the tale of four women living together in Miami, Florida. Blanche, a southern belle, was the foil for the New York acerbity of her Italian-American friend Dorothy (Bea Arthur) and Dorothy's mother Sophia (Estelle Getty), but also played brilliantly against the middle American naivety of Betty White's Rose. When Rose wondered whether it was possible to love two men at one time, Blanche's reply was: "Set the scene. Have we been drinking?"

The Golden Girls debuted in 1985 and went straight to the top of the ratings. It ran until 1992 and resulted in three spin-offs along with a deservedly short-lived British version, Brighton Belles (1993). It was

'Golden Girl' Rue McClanahan dies

'Golden Girl' Rue McClanahan dies
Rue McClanahan, the veteran actress who won an Emmy for playing the saucy Southern belle Blanche Devereaux on "The Golden Girls," died early Thursday at New York-Presbyterian Hospital of a stroke. She was 76.

She had undergone treatment for breast cancer in 1997 and later lectured to cancer support groups on "aging gracefully." She had heart bypass surgery last year.

"Golden Girls" ran from 1985-92 on NBC and was a hit from the beginning, starting off at No. 1 in the Nielsens. The foursome -- which also included Bea Arthur, Betty White and Estelle Getty -- delighted audiences.

McClanahan earned four Emmy noms for "Golden Girls," winning in 1987. She also was nominated for three Golden Globes for her performance as the sex-crazed Blanche.

She also played Blanche in three other series: one episode each of "Nurses" and "Empty Nest" -- both of which preceded "Golden Girls" -- and as a regular on "The Golden Palace,
