Tonight’s the night! One of the three remaining couples will be crowned the Season 21 Champions of Dancing With The Stars. But first, we’ve got a whole lot of dancing, reminiscing and time-killing to do. First, why so late, ABC? This has been a constant thorn in my side, but 9-11pm ET/PT on a school night? Don’t you have children? On to the dancing! It was great to reintroduce ourselves to each of the 13 contestants from this season. Each season, DWTS ups the ante, and this season’s sensational live opening-number (to Karina Es’ “Dancing in the Stars”) at The … Continue reading

This far into Season 2 of Showtime’s The Affair, I have to admit, I’m a little done with episodes that attempt to pass off wildly different versions of the same events as the mysterious workings of two separate minds. While this episode was intriguing — bringing Noah and Helen together for the most substantial amount of time since he bolted for the writers cabin — I gave up on figuring out how to meld the two versions into a probable truth. We learned some not-so-surprising stuff about Whitney in the front end of Helen’s parcel. After that: There was a book signing. Helen was there. Noah … Continue reading
