You likely watch TLC's "Hoarding: Buried Alive" to make yourself feel better about what your garage looks like. But that doesn't mean the show doesn't have real drama. In Wednesday night's episode (Wed., Nov 13 at 10:00 p.m. on TLC), a family comes undone over one man's hoarding problem. Watch this clip and feel the sad.
One man's PTSD causes his daughter to completely lose it
The rumor has finally been confirmed by Ryan Murphy
It may be stunt casting, but it's certainly been set up from the beginning of "American Horror Story: Coven." Misty Day (Lily Rabe), a Cajun witch with the gift of regeneration, loves Stevie Nicks. She looks like Stevie Nicks, she dances like Stevie Nicks, and she listens obsessively to Stevie Nicks. So, why not get Stevie Nicks on the show?
Plus, Taylor drops in and Carlton hates everyone
The couple being sent home this week will surprise you
Plus, watch this deleted scene from the movie of Oswald and his mom
Nat Geo's "Killing Kennedy" broke records for the network, drawing in the most total viewers (3.4 million) of any program in the network's history. If you haven't seen it, you can catch the encore this Fri. Nov. 15 at 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. (and watch a deleted clip from the film). But if you have seen it, you probably have a question -- who was that guy who played Lee Harvey Oswald, anyway? In a movie full of name brands (Rob Lowe, Ginnifer Goodwin, Michelle Trachtenberg) he was the unknown quantity, which seemed fitting for the person playing an assassin we think we know but probably don't.
Jack is moving on, but is Daniel?
Guess what? Nolan gets his own slice of the vengeance pie in this episode of "Revenge," and it's nice to see him get some small reward for his otherwise thankless role as Emily's sidekick. What's weird, though, is that he seems to think this opportunity to destroy someone's life requires not grim determination (Emily's standard M.O.), but an Oscar-worthy speech of gratitude. "I've learned so much from you, Ems," he gushes, so grateful is he to her for having found the inner pluck to "take control" of his own life. I really think Nolan needs to make new friends, as crushing someone like a bug under your heel isn't exactly taking the high road.
The gang gets together to hash out the reunion mess and fur flies
I don't know why, but I keep hoping that Kenya will suddenly realize how she comes across, give one last "Gone With the Wind" fabulous twirl, and start thinking before she speaks. I realize that would ruin the entire show and the rest of the cast would have no one to gossip about other than maybe Beyonce or Rihanna. Still, it's hard for me to accept that someone who can seem so sane and even charming sometimes transforms into the Queen of Crazypants when she feels she has been the victim of some minor transgress.
A certain family Peter Pan knows all too well also makes an appearance
Sigh. It seems that, no matter what our intrepid Henry supporters do in Neverland, Peter Pan is always one step ahead of them, laughing gleefully at how they're playing right into his tiny hands. This is starting to become frustrating, and it also makes me wonder why Pan, if he's so all-knowing and powerful, doesn't just wipe Emma and the gang off the map and stick to the business of manipulating poor Henry. I know, I know. All reasons will be revealed in time. But in the meantime, all of the ingenious plotting and creative reasoning feels futile and depressing. It also might be nice if Pan, with all his powers, could turn on the lights in Neverland. Just a thought.
While we may not need another JFK movie, this one flips the script
It could be argued, and argued well, that we don't need another movie about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Of course, Hollywood has decided otherwise, so there. In time for the fiftieth anniversary of this dark day in history, we're awash in new documentaries, specials, and fictionalized accounts. "Killing Kennedy" (premieres Sun. Nov. 8 at 8:00 p.m. on Nat Geo) is adapted from the successful book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, so it was likely unavoidable that we'd get this admirably concise movie.
Melinda and I argue about Kat Dennings, too
We waited until the last minute to fire up the podcast-making magic machine this week (otherwise known as GarageBand), but we're squeaking in under the wire. If you're thinking about seeing "Thor" but aren't a comic book fan you might want to hear what Melinda and I had to say about the movie (though if you are a comic book fan, there are many, many other reviews you'll find more relevant). We talked about a lot of other stuff, though, like Eminem, Lady Gaga, "Killing Kennedy" and "Scandal." This week we didn't have a guest and we hardly knew what to do with ourselves, but we had fun. We hope you will, too. Keep reading for the rundown:
