Lynda Carter to Receive Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Lynda Carter, television’s Wonder Woman, will be getting her own well-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Says Carter of the honor: “Thrilled to be a class 2018 Hollywood Walk of Fame honoree and to get my very own star! So excited.” Although Carter has been associated with her iconic turn (pun intended) as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman for more than 40 years, she’s been in the spotlight for it more recently due to the character celebrating her 75th birthday, being selected as a U.N. Ambassador and finally getting to the big screen in Patty Jenkins‘ box...

DOCTOR WHO Recap: (S10E11) World Enough and Time

Ah, the end is near. In the penultimate episode of the regular season of Doctor Who, the stakes have risen to a dizzying height, the tension is horrific and even the most mundane moments have an implied weight because Peter Capaldi will be going soon.  To make certain his imminent departure is on our minds throughout all of the action in “World Enough and Time,” the episode opens with a bedraggled Doctor staggering out of the TARDIS onto a snowy, nighttime glacier-scape and beginning to regenerate while begging aloud for it not to happen. This isn’t a bait-and-switch like we...

DOCTOR WHO Recap: (S10E10) The Eaters of Light

The 10th episode of the 10th season of Doctor Who feels like a return to form after a couple of underwhelming weeks, but registering that that episode number means that there are only two more installments in the Peter Capaldi era is gutting.  RELATED: Read Our Four Casting Cases for the 13th Doctor. In “The Eaters of Light,” the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Bill (Pearl Mackie) drag Nardole (Matt Lucas) off to ancient Scotland to settle a dispute about what became of the Roman Ninth Legion, which mysteriously disappeared early in the AD era. Nardole is concerned about leaving the vault...

GGA’s Salute to the Chris’s: Chris Hemsworth

Until Chris Pine pointed out on Saturday Night Live how similar the four Chris’s are capable of looking, I honestly hadn’t noticed. To me, they are distinctly Sgt. Joseph Getraer‘s son (Pine), Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt), Captain Vanilla (Chris Evans) and THOR (Chris Hemsworth).  Related- GGA’s Salute to the Chris’s: Chris Pine & GGA’s Salute to the Chris’s: Chris Evans Of course Chris Hemsworth is more than Thor. His bit in the Ghostbusters reboot where he asks if he looks more like a doctor while he’s playing the saxophone topless or listening to the saxophone topless was my biggest laugh of the movie. Then again,...

DOCTOR WHO Recap: (S10E09) Empress of Mars

Recovering some from what I suggested might be the worst episode ever, Doctor Who brings back the iconic Ice Warriors in “Empress of Mars.” We open, without explanation, at NASA HQ, where the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companions have dropped in on a control room full of people about to reveal what’s hidden beneath the ice cap on Mars. Lo and behold, it’s the message “GOD SAVE THE QUEEN” spelled out in giant letters with rocks. The Doctor uses the TARDIS to determine that the message was left in about 1888. So he, Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) depart...

DOCTOR WHO Recap: (S10E08) The Lie of the Land

“Lie of the Land”: worst episode of Doctor Who in the modern era? According to what I’m seeing online, I’m not the only recapper/reviewer who thinks it might be. When we last saw the Doctor (Peter Capaldi), his sight had just been restored because Bill (Pearl Mackie) gave the Monks her consent to take over the world. Since then, images of what appeared to be the Doctor regenerating ahead of the rumored Christmas Special regeneration were circulating, and hopes were high for whatever surprises were in store. Unfortunately, the only surprise is how big a thud the second half of this three-parter...

STEVEN UNIVERSE Recap: (S05E04) Lars’ Head

In the final episode of Steven Universe that made up the “Wanted” special, “Lars’ Head,” not-zombie Lars (Matthew Moy) comes to terms with his new reality in a way that promises to be really exciting for his character.  Steven (Zach Callison) and the off-colors are relieved by Lars being alive, and Steven explains to his friend that he brought him back by crying on him– which is the first Lars has heard about having not been alive. Nobody knows why he’s pink, and Steven is sure he’s not a zombie, but now we know that Steven’s healing powers are...

STEVEN UNIVERSE Recap: (S05E03) Off Colors

When the third episode of Steven Universe’s fifth season opens, Steven (Zach Callison) and Lars (Matthew Moy) have just escaped from the courtroom where Steven was being tried for shattering Pink Diamond, and they’re lost and on the run on the Gem Homeworld.  Emerging from the ruins of Blue Diamond’s palanquin, far below the courtroom tower the used it to jump from, Steven and Lars are scraped and bruised, saved from worse injury by Steven’s bubble. They know they need to find a place to hide, but neither of them knows anything about where they are or who might be...

STEVEN UNIVERSE Recap: (S05E02) The Trial

Steven Universe attracts the coolest guest voices, and “The Trial” is jam-packed, featuring Amy Sedaris, Charlyne Yi and Patti LuPone.  It turns out that when Steven (Zach Callison) and Lars (Matthew Moy) were separated at the end of the last episode, they were each taken to separate holding cells. When this episode opens, Steven is pacing his, hoping that whatever punishment is coming his way will happen soon, just to get it over with.  He’s been alone long enough to wonder if this solitary confinement *is* his punishment when a door opens and Blue Zircon (Amy Sedaris) walks in. It turns out that she’s his lawyer,...

THE AMERICANS Season Finale Recap: (S05E13) The Soviet Division

It’s season finale time on The Americans, and I’m feeling a similar level of “how will they wrap this up” anxiety to what I experienced as Mad Men ended its penultimate season. “The Soviet Division” left me feeling like I’m holding my breath, and I guess I won’t get to let it out until (maybe) this time next year.  Let’s start with the storylines that were NOT addressed in the finale: Oleg (Costa Ronin) is still, as far as we know, wandering the nighttime streets of Moscow while the KGB closes in on him. Also: the Kansans are still in play, although we...
