black-ish Premiere Recap: Dre Strikes a Hamilton-Inspired Blow for Juneteenth

black-ish Premiere Recap: Dre Strikes a Hamilton-Inspired Blow for Juneteenth
“As much as I love the Fourth of July, shouldn’t the real independence day be the real day everybody was free?” Dre reasons in black-ish‘s Season 4 premiere. Then, with an argument that’s pretty hard to refute, the ABC comedy points out exactly how much black people have done for the United States of America — and how little acknowledgement they’ve received in return.

After stewing in the audience at Jack and Diane’s school play — a dramatic, sanitized retelling of Columbus’ arrival in America — Dre makes a scene that brings the production to a halt. “I can

Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp Are Back Together After Breaking Up Over 2 Years Ago

Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp Are Back Together After Breaking Up Over 2 Years Ago
Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp have rekindled their romance, a source tells Et.

The two started dating in 2010, but called it quits five years later. Back in March, Mellencamp went on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show, and implied that there was no way that he would ever have a shot at getting back with the 55-year-old actress.

"Oh, women hate me. I loved Meg Ryan," he said. "She hates me to death."

As to why Ryan would have such negative feelings toward him, the 65-year-old musician elaborated, "I think it’s because I’m a child. I throw fits, I gripe, I complain. I’m moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, that’s me.”

Stern suggested that Mellencamp call and attempt to make amends with the Sleepless in Seattle star, but he insisted that he'd already attempted to do so

The Voice Predictions: Who's Most Likely to Win Season 11?
It’s been a long time between drinks for Blake Shelton — at least if we’re talking about the last time The Voice‘s winning-est coach saw one of his artists take home first prize. Indeed, you’d have to go back to Craig Wayne Boyd’s victory in Season 7 — almost two years ago — for that particular milestone.

‘Lovesong’ review [Lff 2016]

Lovesong review: A breathtaking, emotional love story with another exceptional, stand-out performance from breakthrough actress Riley Keough.

Lovesong review by Paul Heath, Lff 2016

Sarah (Riley Keough) is a twenty-something mother who spends a considerable time alone bringing up her two-year-old daughter Jessie while her husband works away from long periods. Massively lonely, although effective in bringing up her young child pretty much on her, Sarah yearns for the return of her husband to save her from her isolation. When a childhood friend Mindy (Jena Malone) announces that she will be visiting, Sarah’s world suddenly changes and the two, along with the young Jessie, take to the road to pursue an adventure and to have some fun. What they hadn’t counted on is an immediate spark between them but before their romantic yearnings can develop into something more Mindy ups and leaves and returns to the city. Cut to

‘Black-ish’ Is the Ideal Sitcom for the Age of Black Lives Matter

‘Black-ish’ Is the Ideal Sitcom for the Age of Black Lives Matter
It’s a small prop, dwarfed by other items on the dark wooden table.

Among the books, decorative objects and remotes on the coffee table in the large family room, which is at the heart of the action in most “Black-ish” episodes, lies a copy of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ “Between the World and Me.”

In the Feb. 24 episode of “Black-ish,” Coates’ National Book Award-winning work is not only mentioned, there’s a joke about the fact that Andre Johnson (executive producer and star Anthony Anderson) has trouble pronouncing the author’s name.

It might seem strange for a broadcast network comedy to wring a punchline from a searing meditation on police brutality and the persistence of racism in America. But it’s more than just a well-crafted comedy: Over the course of its first two seasons, “Black-ish” has emerged as the ideal family sitcom for the age of Black Lives Matter.

Black-ish Recap: Happy Birthday, Black Jesus

Black-ish Recap: Happy Birthday, Black Jesus
It's nice to see Pops again. He's been missing for a while, and his Fred Sanford-like insults to Dre are always good for a few chuckles. In this episode, Black-ish starts trying to fill the hole that Charlie left behind. Now that he's gone — and the show's winter hiatus looms — Dre's new boss Daphne seems to be stepping into his spot. "Stuff" begins with a holiday crisis. Pops decides to take over the Johnson Christmas because Dre has spoiled it. He took a beautiful family tradition, and turned it into crap. Pops and Mama Ruby think Dre and his family are wrong to focus on stuff for Christmas. (Hence the title of the episode.) After Jack and Diane complain about the number of presents under the tree, Dre realizes his parents may be right. Pops puts all of their presents in the trunk of his car, then announces
