…Give me a Friends movie! Courteney Cox was talking to the LA Times recently about wanting to do a Friends movie. Entertainment Weekly did an amazing write-up on it, better than anything I could do. Check it out.
(SPOILER ALERT: Read only after watching Supernatural‘s Season Five finale)
It’s all been building up to this. The moment Sam’s girlfriend Jessica was murdered by old yellow eyes in the pilot of Supernatural, it set in motion events that brought the brothers to the climactic battle that took place in the finale of Season Five entitled “Swan Song.” Initially, the story was that Sam was chosen by Azazel (aka yellow eyes) to be his warrior. Well, Azazel chose a few different people and then had them duke it out to see who would come out on top. In this fight Sam ends up being killed which prompts Dean to sell his soul at the crossroads to bring Sam back. The third season is all centered around figuring out how to get Dean out of his deal which will cause him to be dead in a year’s time. Unfortunately, the brothers fail and Dean is killed by hell hounds and sending him to hell.
Sneak Peak from the MTV Movie Awards. The most successful film franchise of all time is going to end with a bang.
(SPOILER ALERT: Read only after watching Glee‘s Season One finale)
Now that the first season of Glee is complete, the signature song of New Directions has remained the main theme of the show throughout the whole first season, for both the characters and the viewers. There were some major missteps along the way (Acafellas, Home, Laryngitis) but it still persisted to be one of the best show on TV. Throughout the season one journey (ha) the series has been highly scrutinized by critics, and even myself. However, I think it’s only because the show is of a certain quality that it exudes the highest expectations from everyone who watches it, which is a good thing.
Finally, the “Alejandro” video! I disagree with critics saying Gaga is “trying” to be Madonna. I’m sure Madonna is a big influence, but what’s wrong with that? Gaga is an artist in her own right. Remember when everyone was saying Britney Spears was the new Madonna? Yeah.
Finally, Riley is getting his due. Shockingly, I know, I was never an Angel/Buffy shipper. Or Spuffy for that matter, I was always Team Riley. Riley was the one who truly could have made Buffy happy, but of course, it couldn’t work out. Buffy is far too complicated, and by complicated I mean drawn to men with fangs.
Since I was sad to see Riley go back in Season 5, it was great seeing him reappear in the Season 8 comics. It’s even greater that Jane Espenson is penning Riley’s very own one shot due out in August from Dark Horse. I can’t wait to see how Riley first got involved with Twilight and what else he’s been up to, especially what happened to his lame-ass wife.
