Recap of Tethered episode 3, blame the gators

Tethered episode 3

In our recap of Discovery’s survival series Tethered episode 3, titled “Bayou Breakdown,” we go to Louisiana’s alligator filled bayou where we meet Rob Greenfield and Kevin Dutoit. We learn Rob biked 2,000 miles to Louisiana— barefoot — before even starting the journey. We figure Kevin probably flew first class. Rob’s first to arrive at the destination. Rob took one look at Kevin in his preppy-boy attire (yes, he had a sweater neatly tied around his neck) and knew he was in trouble. Kevin took one look at Rob and felt relief. Kevin, however, reassures Rob that he’s not a … Continue reading

#TBT TV: James Franco finds his cause as James Dean (2001)

James Franco as James Dean

This week’s TV Throwback Thursday takes us to August 2001. Back then, James Franco was coming off playing high-school burnout Daniel Desario on the brilliant-but-canceled Freaks and Geeks, was still taking uncredited roles as Apartment Guy 3 and was still about a year away from becoming a household name as Harry Osborn in the Spider-Man film franchise. Sept. 11 was still just another day next month. And Lori Acken still went by the delightfully alliterative name Lori Lundquist. Lori got to interview burgeoning star Franco back in the day (he still had two arms), when he starred in the TNT … Continue reading

Neil Patrick Harris to Host the 2015 Academy Awards

2015 Academy Awards

  In recognition of the solemnity that Hollywood treats the Academy Awards, I will hold a moment of reverence for this momentous decision …  Moment over.  SQUEE!!!

The Emmy and Tony Award winner totally slayed when he hosted 2013 Tony Awards and the 2013 Emmy Awards. I am hopeful that Neil could become a regular host of the Oscars like Billy Crystal or Bob Hope, but … Continue reading
