‘Manhattan Love Story’ Premieres On ABC: Where Will The Love Go?

‘Manhattan Love Story’ Premieres On ABC: Where Will The Love Go?
As I just celebrated twenty-six years of my own Manhattan love story, I was very interested in watching this show.

And then I tuned in. Well, spending a half hour with this series is the first bad date I’ve had in thirty years.

If the point is to expose people – especially those on the dating circuit – as phonies and liars, then the creators of this series have hit the nail on the head. You see, the gimmick they are trying to pass off as charm is that we hear the characters’ thoughts, which are almost always the polar opposite of what’s coming out of their mouths.

The main couple whose l...

'Twilight' To Be Resurrected In Five Short Films On Facebook
The "Twilight" film saga, which was thought to end with "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" in 2012, is making a comeback. The vampire franchise is being resurrected in the form of short films that will be released on Facebook.

The final big-screen film was released two years ago; however, Lionsgate has partnered with the social media website to bring it back, according to the New York Times.

The five mini-movies, titled "The Storytellers - New Creative Voices of the Twilight Saga," will be based on characters from the franchise. However, the original cast will not be featured in the short films.

Tetris
Threshold Entertainment, the company that brought video game franchise "Mortal Kombat" to the big screen has announced that it's set to bring another popular game to movie thieaters in the not-too-distant future: Tetris.

No, really.

The company's CEO, Larry Kasanoff, told the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday that Threshold has story in place that is "much more imaginative" than one might think, and that the film will be a "very big, epic sci-fi movie."

"This isn't a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page," he said. "We're not giving feet to the geometric shapes."

'24: Live Another Day': Mary Lynn Rajskub Looks Back On Jack's R
When Jack Bauer came in from the cold with 24: Live Another Day, it was one of the most exciting TV events of the season. Now that the "day" is done and the miniseries is out on Blu-Ray and DVD, we sat down with the awesome Mary Lynn Rajskub - who plays Jack's right-hand woman Chloe O'Brian - to look back on Live Another Day, including whether or not it will lead to more 24 and the ending that didn't happen.

'The Mindy Project' Recap: The Jokes Keep Flying, But Mindy's In A Plot Rut

'The Mindy Project' Recap: The Jokes Keep Flying, But Mindy's In
"My butt does not sound like Fat Marlon Brando.” With jokes like that, you’d assume Mindy scored this week, but instead it is in a bit of a rut, plot-speaking. Sure the jokes are standardly superb, and The Mindy Project produces a solidly standard episode week. It’s just formulaic. The formula goes like this:

Mindy and Danny scene that is casual, but sets the pieces of the plot up. Then an office scene with everyone together. Peter has his own subplot, this season involving his girlfriend Lauren. And back to the issue of what Mindy and Danny are going through. That doesn’t mean any of what...

'The Singles Project' Season 1 Finale: What We've Learned From The Daters

'The Singles Project' Season 1 Finale: What We've Learned From T
I won’t front: I really liked this show. It put the "real" back in reality TV for me, as I think it captured so many of the scenarios that those on the hunt for “the one” deal with day to day. I also appreciated that the cast of very nice people got friendly, and we were spared the usual table turning, back biting, screaming matches among the stars. Even when two of the cast members had a situation where the same man showed interest in both of them, there was no predicable you-stole-my-man “cat fight”; the one who felt spurned kept the focus on the man for being a rather flighty player.

Awkward
“Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?”

If it’s inching closer to midnight on New Year’s Eve without a male or female pucker in sight. Ab-so-lu-te-ly!! But Jenna would instruct us to do as she says and not as she does.

Let’s rewind to 3 or 4 hours before the midnight kissing madness began. While Lacey borrowed a sparkling number from Taylor Swift’s closet to wear to Ally’s New Year’s party, Jenna primed her ...

'New Girl' Season 4, Episode 3 Review: 'Trashley Berkman'

October 1st, 2014 10:48am EDT
New Girl
While it is heartwarming for a sitcom to manage to consistently pull off happy endings, there is always the potential that it can go too far with that consistency and have conflicts wrap up a little too easily in 30 minutes. The first two episodes of “New Girl” Season 4 were praiseworthy for how much everyone was getting along after a rancorous Season 3. “Julie Berkman’s Older Sister,” continues that trend, which is preferable to the alternative of sudden, unwarranted discord, but this outing errs a bit on the side of sitcom-y convenience. That is not meant as a knock on sitcom formula. ...

‘Forever’ Season 1 Episode 3 Recap: 'Fountain Of Youth'

‘Forever’ Season 1 Episode 3 Recap: 'Fountain Of Youth'
How will Henry (Ioan Gruffudd) die this week? Apparently not at all, because the point of this episode is: Live your life to the fullest regardless of your age, or as Abe (Judd Hirsch) said, “Youth is wasted on the immortal.”

The comment is in response to Henry being really excited because one of his death wish experiments has possibility. Abe finds it hard to generate any enthusiasm for this information. Henry tries to explain that it's not that he actually wants to die and stay day, but just stop living forever and experience the cycle of life, which means growing old.

79-year-old Abe t...
