Huffington Post - 12 months
Whenever the anniversary of a famous author's birth or death reaches a significant milestone, critics and creative types may stop, look back, and think about a particular artist's cultural contribution. The more famous the artist, the less urgent the need to mark any major anniversary simply for the sake of history. Although this year marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death (April 23, 1616), Shakespeare festivals now dot the international landscape. Box office returns easily justify Mostly Mozart festivals and celebrations of Beethoven's music. Performances of Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung draw enthusiasts from around the world (the Washington National Opera will be performing three Ring cycles this spring). Back when Tito Capobianco was in charge of the San Diego Opera, he launched an annual Verdi festival with the goal of performing two of the beloved composer's operas each season until San Diego audiences had gone through the entire catalog. Each ye ...

What To Watch On Netflix, Part 3: Overlooked Gems
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Now that I've got the Classics and the Pretty Good Bets lists out of the way, welcome to my list of Netflix's Overlooked Gems. This was the Netflix recommendation roster I had the most fun compiling (it's not every day that having watched so much cult TV comes in handy). Adding to the fun: This list comes with a cherry on top, in the form of some exciting news. HuffPost TV can exclusively reveal that all five seasons of the much-loved NBC spy drama "Chuck" will be available in the U.S. for streaming on Netflix on Nov. 1. "Chuck" is a good poster child for this list, which is all about shows with fervent but smallish fan bases -- these are all shows that, for one reason or another, deserve wider attention but in many cases weren't big hits when they first aired. It truly brings me joy to recommend these kinds of shows to people who may be unfamiliar with them; if there's one thing I've become convinced of in my time as a TV critic, it's that there is a great deal of enjoyment to be ...
