What can I watch that will distract me/dispel my paralyzing fear of flying? Help! —@corabeesA good plane show is a bit like a good gym show: light on lingering images of graphic violence or nudity, heavy on addictive qualities. A good plane show, though, can include subtitles but shouldn't include too many soaring feelings, since people tend to get emotional on flights. Avoid anything likely to make you cry, like Jane the Virgin or The Choir or early Grey's Anatomy, which otherwise are good marathon shows. Friday Night Lights is the answer to almost every »

In honor of the talented voice actor and in recognition of his contribution to the show, FX has released a video in memoriam of Coe. Compiling memorable scenes with the lovable Woodhouse, the clip is sure to move any "Archer" fans and certainly fans of the late Mr. Coe. Coe was not only the voice of Woodhouse on "Archer," but also was an accomplished actor and producer, having been in "Kramer vs. Kramer" and "Blind Date," and having made appearances on many shows from "Grey's Anatomy" to "Two and a Half Men." He was also notably an original »

It has been far too long since a TV show did a musical episode—and we're not counting the dearly departed Glee or our new love Empire. We're talking about when a show, like Grey's Anatomy, does a straight-up and unexpected musical episode. Let's change that. Musical episodes can either be amazing—try and tell us Buffy the Vampire Slayer's "Once More, With Feeling" is not one of the finest hours of TV you've watched and that you don't own the soundtrack to Joss Whedon's genius episode—or just dreadful. Sorry, 7th Heaven, but whuck? Here's how we would do musical episodes for seven of your favorite shows. Law and Order: Svu Now we »

To commemorate just how far we've come - and to celebrate Sandra Oh's birthday this week - we're going back through all the moments we felt like we had a permanent understanding with Grey's. Keep scrolling, and let the nostalgia seep in. »

Patrick Dempsey is looking good, like, really good. The actor stepped out on Saturday to attend the Ennstal Classic, a three-day classic car racing event in Gröbming, Austria, and managed to prove that he keeps getting better with age. Patrick, who was recently killed off of Grey's Anatomy after 11 seasons of playing Dr. Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd, flashed his charming smile as he posed for photos with fans while sitting inside a tiny car. He then strapped on a helmet for a few laps around the racetrack. Patrick's carefree outing may come as a surprise to some of his fans since the actor's wife, Jillian, filed for divorce in January to end the couple's 15-year marriage. The pair released a statement shortly after the news broke, saying that their primary focus was on the well-being of their three children, Darby, Tallulah, and Sullivan. Keep reading to see the return of Patrick's ridiculously beautiful smile, »
Dr. Cristina Yang, how we miss you. Let us count the ways... one, two, three... 19.
Ever since Sandra Oh exited "Grey's Anatomy," our Thursday nights have seriously been lacking in the sass department. No more frank talk. No more dry one-liners. Dr. Yang was as irreverent as she is irreplaceable. But now, thanks to the miracle of the Internet, we can fill every day with Dr. Yang's best quotes, zingers, one-liners, and comebacks.
Here, then, are 19 times (out of, like, a billion) that Dr. Cristina Yang made us so, so happy to be loyal "Grey's Anatomy" fans. »

George Coe, an actor whose long and eclectic career earned him legions of fans spanning several different generations, has died. He was 86.

You'll be kicking yourself if you don't see "The Stanford Prison Experiment" in theaters. Seriously. And, no, I'm not just saying that because I happen to know director Kyle Patrick Alvarez socially or that it's a Sundance Jury Award-winning movie or that it depicts one of the most shocking events to occur at one of America's greatest Universities over the past fifty years.* The real reason is that besides the questions it raises about the human condition and our ability to descend to abject cruelty, "Stanford" features a once in a life time cast that will dominate Hollywood for the next 15 to 20 years.* *It also has earned strong reviews to date including a 71 grade on Metacritic and 78% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Based on true events, the new drama chronicles the 1971 psychological experiment that found Stanford University students sorted into the roles of prison guard or a generic prisoner. In theory, »

"Grey's Anatomy" has mad us laugh, cry, and sometimes throw things at our televisions. But, no matter what, we keep coming back for more emotional torture. And, after 11 seasons, it stands to reason that nearly every character has dated every other character on the show (even though almost half of them are either now dead or have moved on.)
Here, then, is the ranking of "Grey's Anatomy" couples, from worst to best.

That Neve Campbell has good taste. The "Party of Five" alum hasn't been a TV series regular in many moons -- just showing up in one or two episodes of shows from "Mad Men" to "Grey's Anatomy" -- but she signed up for a big role on Season 4 of Netflix's outstanding "House of Cards."
Deadline revealed Campbell as the newest series regular, saying her role was being kept a secret. However, there was just scoop about a young couple joining Season 4 as a mirror image of President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and First Lady Claire (Robin Wright). Is Neve Campbell, perhaps, the female half of that younger power couple? Maybe. Maybe not.
"House of Cards" Season 4 will premiere in 2016 -- probably February, as usual -- and will at least partly focus on how Claire ... but wait. No spoilers, in case you aren't caught up yet. This show is definitely binge-worthy, »

Since the Scream franchise bloodied its last blade, Neve Campbell has been seen most regularly on the smaller screen with turns in Grey's Anatomy, Mad Men and soon NBC’s Welcome To Sweden. As everyone knows, that’s no bad place to be as an actor these days, especially if you can leap onto a Netflix show like House Of Cards. Campbell is the latest name to be added to the roster for the show’s fourth season.The Hollywood Reporter has Campbell appearing in a regular role, although Netflix is keeping her character details firmly under wraps.While the critical consensus was that season three dipped slightly below the vaulted standards of the first two, you wouldn’t put it past Underwood to pull something truly Machiavellian out of the bag in the fourth. Kevin Spacey, of course, will return as a President with far more enemies than friends. »
