It took eight seasons (and one made-for-TV movie) for time to run out for Fox’s venerable and ground-breaking action series 24 which starred Kiefer Sutherland as the tragic anti-hero Jack Bauer. Each season, the series took one day in the life of the sometimes counter-terrorist agent Bauer and dealt with the ups and downs of a major attack on U.S. soil like clockwork. The real time conceit was the hook, but it was Sutherland and crackerjack storytelling that kept viewers glued to their screens year after year. With 24 – Season Eight and The Complete Series hitting DVD this week, […]Read On »

JERSEY SHORE | ©2010 MTV

I don’t really celebrate Christmas. I’m not a Grinch or anything. I’m just more a Festivus girl. If you don’t know what Festivus is then … wait, really? You don’t know what Festivus is? If you don’t know then you probably don’t have Internet and you are probably not reading this so I will move along. I have put up my Festivus pole, and I plan to wrestle with the head of the household for the feats of strength. The head of our household is our wiener dog, Homer, so that shouldn’t be too hard. But my favorite part of […]Read On »

TERRIERS is one of those great shows that few people watched, but those who did, were passionate about it. The FX series concerned ex-cop Hank Dolworth (Donal Logue) and his best friend ex-thief Brit Morgan (Michael Raymond-James) who teamed up as unlicensed private eyes in San Diego and stumbled across a CHINATOWN-like scheme. The series finale aired Wednesday. Usually, when a TV series is canceled, the network lets it slip away as quietly as possible. However, when FX decided not to renew freshman series TERRIERS on Friday, network president John Landgraf took the rare step of organizing a conference call […]Read On »

Walking the carpet were the stars of the film, […]Read On »
