The 'Gilmore Girls' Revival Is Best When It Talks About Grief
Huffington Post - 3 months
There’s a moment in the opening chapter of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” after the first “la las” and Gwyneth Paltrow dig, when the long-awaited Netflix revival finally takes a second to breathe. Fueled by a late-night batch of coffee, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) convene in their rarely used kitchen to do the thing they do better than anyone else on television: talk. “I’m just stressed out and kind of feeling my mortality lately,” Lorelai says after confessing that she willingly flipped through a brochure for an all-expenses-paid cruise, much to their shared horror. The line is especially significant given that the series, much like its caffeine-infused hero, is also contending with its mortality. Nine years after it was cancelled by the CW on the heels of a rudderless final season, “Gilmore Girls” has become the latest in a long line of early 2000s series to get the revival treatment. But instead of abandoning what made the show so beloved, “A Year ...

‘Daredevil: Road Warrior’ takes hero west (and digital) with Mark Waid
LATimes - over 3 years
The digital “Daredevil: Road Warrior” will follow the end of the print “Daredevil” in February. (Chris Samnee / Marvel) Marvel is showing no fear in where it’s taking the Man Without Fear in his 50th anniversary year, moving Daredevil to the West Coast and digital frontier. The publisher announced Thursday that the print “Daredevil,” ending with No. 36 in February, will be succeeded by the digital exclusive “Daredevil: Road Warrior,” to be part of Marvel’s Infinite Comics line. Writer Mark Waid, who has scripted the entirety of ol’ hornhead’s most recent run, will continue with the character into the new format — fitting, given the Eisner winner’s innovative work in digital comics with his Thrillbent initiative. He will be joined by artist Peter Krause (“Power of Shazam”), whom he’s worked with on “Irredeemable.” “Daredevil: Road Warrior” finds blind attorney / costumed vigilante Matt Murdock packing his “I Am Not Daredevil” T-shirt (at least, we hope he’s taking it) and head ...

Emmy Awards: Another year, another snub-fest
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 3 years
KARACHI:  Emmys are to television what Oscars are to Hollywood — the ultimate award, the last hurrah and the moment of glory. Like every year, the Emmys snubbed some incredible performances this year from network television and chose to side with the excessively violent and slightly sociopathic cable shows. What else will you call Michael C Hall’s Dexter? It’s not that cable television is not good. Au contraire, a show like Homeland will stay with you long after the season is over. It’s the most gripping show on cable television. After all, President Barack Obama is a fan for a reason. Claire Danes has put up the  performance of a lifetime as a bipolar CIA agent. As Carrie, she falls in love with a man who, is as damaged and broken as she is, while working for a spy agency with its own egoistical bosses and power players. But, not every show is Homeland. Game of Thrones is violent (appealing as it maybe to the world). Make no mistake, Dexter is ...

Monica Potter On Getting Friendly With Kristina's Wigs
Huffington Post - over 3 years
On Season 4 of "Parenthood," Monica Potter was given the challenge of portraying the emotional journey of a woman diagnosed with breast cancer and navigating her life with an unexpected baby, a daughter just starting college on the other side of the country and a pre-teen son with Asperger's. Potter's performance on "Parenthood's" most recent season earned high praise and Emmy buzz, which led The Hollywood Reporter to ask the actress to join their annual Emmy roundtable of drama actresses along with Connie Britton ("Nashville"), Anna Gunn ("Breaking Bad"), Kate Mara ("House of Cards"), Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men") and Kerry Washington ("Scandal"). During the hour-long discussion (which you can watch in full at THR), Moss asked Potter if she knew Kristina was "going to make it through" Season 4 of "Parenthood." "I did. I kind of knew because Kathy, ["Parenthood" creator Jason Katims'] wife, did ... So a lot of the stuff that's written mirrors what's going on in Jason's l ...

John Glaser: Further Involvement in Syria Would Be an Unmitigated Disaster
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The pressure on the Obama administration to take military action against the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad has eased somewhat with news today that preliminary findings from a U.N. investigating team indicate that the rebels, not the government, used chemical weapons. President Obama indicated months ago that the Assad regime's use of chemical weapons in its bloody civil war would be a "red line," triggering unspecified military action. When the administration announced last month that some intelligence suggested the possible use of the nerve agent sarin, advocates of U.S. intervention howled with renewed calls for bombing the Syrian regime and arming the rebel opposition. Carla Del Ponte, a former prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and a current member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, said that testimony gathered by U.N. human rights researchers reveals "strong, concrete suspicions but not ...

Bombers' Muslim Background Offers Few Clues To Crime
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
As police continue a manhunt Friday throughout Boston for the remaining living suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings after a deadly shootout near the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge Thursday night, information continues to surface about Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, and his slain brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26. Both had moved to the U.S. over 10 years ago from the Russian area near Chechnya, said an uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, who lives Montgomery Village, Md., in interviews with news reporters. Social media accounts and interviews with friends point to both men being Muslims with an interest in Islamic insurgency movements in their homeland. But the motives that led the men to the killings still remain unknown. Chechnya declared independence in 1991 from and subsequently fought two wars against Russia, but eventually was brought back under Russian control. The area is predominately Muslim, and militants there and in Russia's North Caucasus have led attacks ...

WATCH: Kristina Shaves Her Head In Emotional 'Parenthood' Preview
Huffington Post - about 4 years
When "Parenthood" returns (January 1 at 10 p.m. EST on NBC), Kristina's battle with cancer is far from over. The first of the NBC drama's final four episodes of Season 4, titled "Keep On Rowing," sees Kristina make the bold choice to shave her head before chemotherapy causes her to lose her hair. Monica Potter, who plays Kristina, told HuffPost TV that the New Year's Day episode is her favorite, partly because Dax Sherpard, who plays Crosby on the series, directed it. "You see her going out with the girls, getting out of the house and trying to have fun with Julia [Erika Christensen] and Jasmine [Joy Bryant] and Sarah [Lauren Graham] and wanting to feel like she's normal again," Potter said. "It's sort of heartbreaking to see what happens when she does try to act normal and go out ... There's not one flat line of emotion; it's everywhere."

District 16 athlete among state’s best golfers
abc Newspapers - over 4 years
Nick Auman, Spring Lake Park High School’s number one golfer, reaffirmed his status as one of the state’s best golfers when he competed in his second-consecutive Class 3A state boys’ golf tournament last week. Nick Auman hits a few drives off the Bunker Hills driving range. Ball striking is his strongest area, as he routinely hits 280-yard drives from the tee box. Photo by Sue Austreng For Auman, finishing in the upper half of the field of 88 contenders punctuated his high school athletic career and served as jump start for what’s to come. Although Auman entered the state tournament feeling his game was “rolling together pretty well,” a tough first day threatened to defeat his confidence. “The first day … it was tough on the course. Some days things just don’t go your way … you just have to grind it out and start fresh the next day,” Auman said after shooting an 83 on opening day of the June 12 and 13 Class 3A state golf tournament at Bunker Hills Golf Course.
