Being able to celebrate the completion of ‘The Vampire Diairies’ was a joyful and deeply emotional ride, a luxury gifted by Mark Pedowitz at The CW and Peter Roth at Wbtv, who, as TV fans themselves, know what it means when a fan is. »

5 Random but Awesome Insane Asylum Characters in Movies
Insane asylums, or mental wards as they’re now known, are not nice places. They are essentially used for those whose mental gears have slipped a time or two and can’t fall back on the right track without medication or some form of intensive therapy. They’re not the kind of places you want to find yourself in most times, even if they are run by professionals and keep the residents happy for the most part. If you’re in a mental ward, the chances are good that life took a definite turn for the worst. Here are a few inmates that weren’t

Why O.J. Simpson Should Never Work in This Town Again
You can’t turn around these days without coming across a media property that riffs on the ‘80s or ‘90s. Nostalgia is big business, and can even lead to great art, as we saw when “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” garnered just about every award it was nominated for.
But the upswing in interest in all things O.J. should not lead Hollywood and the entertainment industry to put the former football player to work again. No company would come out of such an arrangement thinking they’d made the right call.
Even though the parole board granted him his freedom and he will walk out of a Nevada prison at some point relatively soon, allowing him to join the world of entertainers and reality-show stars would be a terrible idea.
Let’s set aside for the moment the issue of his innocence or guilt in the matter of the brutal murders of »

How ‘Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party’ Became a Joint Effort to Make the World a Better Place
