‘Castle’ Recap: The Doctor’s In The…Casket?

10/19/2010 10:50am EDT
Castle, Beckett Season 3
Last night’s Castle episode “Anatomy of a Murder” had more twists and turns than Chubby Checker driving on a switchback mountain road during an earthquake. Yeah. It was intense, but managed to keep the humor.

The episode started with a scene at a Jewish funeral. When a bevy of pallbearers tried to lift and move the suspiciously heavy casket, it dropped, revealing that it was holding not one, but two dead bodies. Gross.

One of those bodies was that of Dr. Monroe, a female doctor who, as we find out later with the help of Detective Kate Beckett, her team and Castle, was hired by an NYPD det...

'Castle' Recap: Of Psychic Proportions

Castle and Beckett, season 3
In last night's episode, "He's Dead, She's Dead," a famous psychic named Vivienne was a murder victim, found dead, stuffed in her couch by her own daughter. Suffice it to say she probably should have seen this coming (zing!). Oh wait. Did she?

Castle (Nathan Fillion) thought so, as he tested, often annoyingly, Beckett’s (Stana Katic) skepticism about fate, psychics and the paranormal. Of course, Beckett and her team weren’t having that, as they are detectives who live by concrete evidence and logical explanations, and thus are, by default, skeptics.

Turns out that this Vivienne wasn’t as ...

'Castle' Recap: He's Back (Whew!)

Castle Season 1 Image
Occasional Castle viewers know that the ABC show is a crime detective/comedy series with a least one victim, one murderer, and a case to solve. But for us real Castle fans, we know that heart of the show is the comedy and romantic tension between the two main characters, crime novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). And, oh, was the tension ever so thick in last night's season three premiere.

If you forgot, Beckett was kinda sorta dating a robbery detective (Tom Denning) in the last few episodes of last year's wonderful season. Clearly, Castl...

5 Movies Guys Shouldn't Watch

Thelma & Louise
It’s easy to pick out movies that don’t particularly sit well with many American men. Cue the Chick Flicks. Beaches. Steel Magnolias. Waiting to Exhale. Anything with Meg Ryan. But some movies just flat out scare the bejesus out of men. Here are five movies that do just that, and possibly more.

Fatal Attraction: The premise: Man (Michael Douglas), although happily married, begins an affair with Other Woman (Glenn Close). Other Woman falls desperately in love with Man. Man is then turned off and tries to end affair. Other Woman says, “Oh hells no!” and turns into Psycho Chick. Psycho Chick ...

5 TV Shows That (Maybe?) Should Be Made Into Movies
Turning classic TV shows into big screen movies seems to be the current forte in Hollywood. Sometimes they work (The Brady Bunch Movie, Mission: Impossible, Charlie’s Angels). Oftentimes they don’t (Bewitched, The Dukes of Hazzard, I Spy, The Honeymooners). In honor of yet another classic TV show being made into a movie (The A Team hits theaters this Friday, June 11), here are five classic TV shows that should have their own big screen adaptations – with all new casts, of course – sometime in the near future. Maybe.

Happy Days: Although set in 1950s and 1960s America, this classic sitcom r...

Top TV & Movie Secretaries
They work hard. They keep things in order. They are oftentimes unappreciated. In honor of Administrative Professionals Day (April 21), here are the 10 best and memorable TV and movie secretaries, receptionists and personal assistants.


Sydney Andrews (Laura Leighton) Melrose Place

Let's do this list right by starting with some crazy. Sydney was the schizophrenic secretary who made her bitchy boss Amanda Woodward (Heather Locklear) look like a princess. With all that dying, coming back to life, murdering and plenty of revenge sex, who wouldn't want this chick answering the phone and sc...

Lost: Trying to sum up this wonderful piece of small screen enigma is a challenge.

'American Idol's' Crystal Bowersox: The One to Beat?

3/29/2010 11:28am EDT
Crystal Bowersox, the current American Idol frontrunner, gave fans a scare the second week in the semi-final rounds, as she was rushed to the hospital due to diabetes complications. Needless to say, Bowersox bounced back quickly, showing fans that she’s in it to win it. And if her latest performances say anything, they’re telling us that she’s unquestionably the one to beat.

Last week, the indie-folk 24-year-old single mother gave one of the more memorable performances on this season’s "Idol" to date – a rendition of Janis Joplin’s Me and Bobby McGee. Though not a complete knock-off of Jop...
