America’s Next Top Model recap: The finale photos begin

Finale Part 1: The Finalists Shoot Their Guess Campaign

Guys, it’s here. The first part of the America’s Next Top Model season finale.  That’s right, this show still gets a 2-hour, 2-part season finale.  No, I don’t know why.  Just go with it.

If you remember, last week the competition was narrowed down to our final three: Jordyn, Marvin, and Corey.

The Vampire Diaries ‘Handle With Care’ review: Breaking Kat

The-Vampire-Diaries-Handle-With-Care

Let us all bask in the glory that was the best episode of The Vampire Diaries in a very long while! Am I delusional or was that just some very good stuff? I’m beyond the mythology, though sometimes with how wonky it is, it can be plain fun in its own right.

kristoffer-cusick-headshot

Who knew that a shy young Kristoffer Cusick would go from private singing and dancing lessons to Broadway’s “bailout” king? Now for those who haven’t seen First Date, Cusick plays Reggie, Casey’s (played by Krysta Rodriguez) caring but overly dramatic BFF in this season’s hottest new musical comedy. His “Bailout Song,” a tune that pops up repeatedly throughout the show, is one of the most talked about songs off the album, not to mention everyone and their mother wants it as their ringtone.

The Vampire Diaries ‘Monster’s Ball’ review: Babies having babies

I must really be a masochist. OK, here’s a stream of consciousness (I apologize in advance):

Well, let’s be honest: that wasn’t a bad episode of The Vampire Diaries. But, then again, as I’ve been reiterating for this entire season, this season is just a reiteration of the show. Even Caroline is tired of having the same talk with Tyler about him leaving and having to do things elsewhere.

The Michael J. Fox Show : “Teamates” Review

betsy-brandt-michael-j-fox-

The Michael J. Fox Show is an unfunny show about terrible people. This issue isn’t that the show is in the vein of Seinfeld or It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and I just don’t get it. The Michael J. Fox Show wants to be a family show about a family, but fails miserably.

Blunt best friends are a necessity when it comes to steering clear of problematic exes (who you may or may not still be hung up on), and Bryce Ryness does just that. Well, his character Gabe does, anyway. Ryness currently headlines in First Date, a hilarious new musical starring Zachary Levi and Krysta Rodriguez, which more or less follows the trials and tribulations of dating in a primarily digital age.

Prisoners review: Thriller done right

Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal shine in Villeneuve's dark and disturbing film

exclusive-prisoners-uk-quad-poster-143946-a-1378291853-470-75

Prisoners is the story of two families broken by the abduction of their two young daughters on the day of Thanksgiving. A simple thriller and an overdone conflict as it may seem, Prisoners is much more than that. It plays with people’s limits, with their morals and with their hearts. With their beliefs.

The Vampire Diaries ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ review: Ghost whisperer

tvd 504

When Stefan lost his memory last week, I was split pretty evenly about it. On one hand, you have what could be a trite plot twist. On the other, it could be a lot of fun having Stefan rediscover this weird world. I mean, these are people who are vampires and where a friend is dead but is making sure no one knows.
