Give me a boy’s name that starts with the letter H. Come on, there are lots to choose from, you should get this easily and win the game…
Classic TV Shows from the Past.
Cote de Pablo’s upcoming “NCIS” exit has sparked quite a bit of outrage from fans, but CBS insists it tried hard to keep her on the hit series. Ultimately, though, the actress chose to depart the show, no matter how much money she was offered to stay, says CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves.
If someone wanted to make a live-action film based on the ’90s MTV cartoonDaria,Aubrey Plazawould be the ideal choice. CollegeHumor takes this idea and runs with it in its new trailer for the (fake) movie Daria: High School Reunion. Here, we see Plaza sporting the character’s signature specs and green blazer, along with cameos by her best friend Jane, annoying sister Quinn and others.
The most recent allegations of Weiner’s extramarital online flirting were first published by a website called “The Dirty” — which, in taste and approach, is part of a recent proliferation of crowd-sourced gossip sites that have used social media to shift the boundaries of scandal in American life.
Actor Dennis Farina, a real-life Chicago police officer who went on to play a detective on NBC’s Law & Order, has died at 69. According to his publicist, Lori De Waal, Farina died Monday morning in a Scottsdale, Ariz., hospital after suffering a blood clot in his lung.
Prior to this past weekend, James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy was a big question mark in Marvel’s slate. Serious Marvel fans know the characters, but the casting and thin advance word on the movie suggested that what Gunn is cooking up is something pretty different, both from the original comics and from the rest of Marvel’s slate.
Miguel Angel Jimenez, who at 49 is trying to become the oldest player to win a major, took the lead Friday after 36 holes in the oldest major championship in golf. Jimenez, nicknamed the Mechanic and dubbed the Most Interesting Man in the World for his free-spirited ways that usually involve cigars and wine, shot an even-par 71 to stand alone at 3 under 139.
Think of the kind of lurid title that might have been found on the cover of a true-detective magazine from the 1950s. Say, something like “Naked and Afraid.”
Got your attention? Well, that’s the point, isn’t it?
“Naked and Afraid” is the title of the six-week summer reality show that the Discovery Channel, uh, unveiled, at 10:20 p.m. Sunday, right after coverage of Nik Wallenda’s successful skywire stunt near the Grand Canyon. Mind you, this is the cable channel that already has a reality show called “Naked Castaway.”
But, as buff titles go, “Naked and Afraid” has that beat by miles. In a race of amazing reality titles, “Naked Castaway” is barely getting started as “Naked and Afraid” is crossing the finish line.
As for substance? OK, we’re not expecting a doctoral dissertation with something called “Naked and Afraid.” Nor are we expecting a “Game of Thrones”-style budget. They certainly weren’t spending a lot on wardrobe. The nudity is obscured by blurring and sly camera angles.
Strip away the tawdry title, and what you have is your basic reality survival show, and not a bad one. Each week, the series follows a new team of “complete and total strangers — one man and one woman” — who, according to Discovery, “find themselves stranded in and, quite literally, exposed to some of the world’s most extreme weather environments.”
They must survive on their own (followed by a camera crew, of course) for 21 days, packing nothing but one personal item each. The prize? There is none. They’re baring and braving all for the challenge and (wait for it) exposure, tackling nature in the raw with no food, no water and no clothes.
At long last, it appears that Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” is hitting the big screen.
One of my favorite signs of summer is the start of a new season of True Blood. This is for all you vampire fans. Live long and prosper.
