Fixing Saturday Night Live
This past Saturday, Saturday Night Live saw the departure of four long running cast-members: Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney, and arguably the show's two biggest names, Pete Davidson and Kate McKinnon.Anthony NastiPublished 10 months ago in Beat
Atlanta -- What Comedy Has Aspired To
Knowing Donald Glover to be a versatile artist from his acting work (primarily in Community) as well as a naturally funny comedian and eclectic musician, it was suffice to say I had high hopes when I put on the episode “The Big Bang” on Hulu about two months ago. Looking for a new show to get excited about and knowing Glover’s capabilities, I kept an observant eye out, hoping to find signs, or at least glimmers, of greatness in the realm of Atlanta.J.C.

Love Is A Funny Thing: One Scene From Euphoria
I was going to write, harsh and sharp-tongued on the alarming new trend of viewers' new found confidence and penchant for bodyslamming tv show and film creators when things don't go their way enmasse, on Twitter in a mindblowing and mass sense of inflated ego - you try writing it then, you wouldn't last five minutes, my guy, and I say that as a former creative writing student- or: 'Everyone's (Literally) a (Very emotional an ill-informed) Critic' - as the old adage goes. But I'm taking a page from Rue's book and turning a criticism into a praise.Jessica Bailey
Jeopardy! Fans Blame Host Mayim Bialik For Change (Likely) Made By Producers
Let's talk about how shows get made. A host often takes a lot of the heat for what they say, but what you need to know about every TV show or piece of pro media you consume is that there is usually an entire team working together.
Featuring Dylan Zangwill
Dylan Zangwill is fourteen from a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pa. He is ultra talented and I believe Freddie Mercury is staring down from heaven with a huge smile on his face. As evidenced by the smile on Dylan's face he was pleased with his audition performance. Dylan's performance also earned him a standing ovation from the crowd and three of the judges. Simon didn't stand, instead he did smile from his seat.
Competition was stiff on AGT
https://youtu.be/jfOchBlb4sY The battle of the fourteen year old's at America's Got Talent. Who are you pulling for? Benicio? Dylan?. They both have one thing in common, they are extremely gorgeous, in my opinion. I love Dylan's hair and I love Benicio's skin tone. But they are both very talented musically. I hate when this happens. I hate when two incredibly cute boys are competing against one another.
Review: Homer's Enemy
This episode, aired on May 4, 1997, has a rating of 9.3 out of 10, making it the most limited episode of the 28th season so far. The creators of the Simpsons episode are divided on their point of view: creator Matt Groening puts them in his favorite pieces while former great producer Mike Reiss calls them one of his favorites. The Simpsons on Saturday is one of the biggest, and it is my favorite program.
Review of 'The Beatles: Get Back' Part 3
If I had to pick the single best moments in the nearly nine hours of the superb, one-of-a-kind documentary that is Peter Jackson's The Beatles: Get Back, it would be Paul McCartney saying "whew!" smiling, doing a dance, and continuing the concert, after turning and taking note of the robotic cops (or whatever they call them in London) intruding into the Beatles' rooftop performance. The same cops on the ground floor had been threatening arrests and claiming they weren't making threats before they demanded to go up to the roof. Good thing they don't carry guns like the police do here in America.
Review of 'The Beatles: Get Back' Part 2
A very different kind of feeling and (true) story in Part 2 of Peter Jackson's The Beatles: Get Back documentary. Up from the doldrums, George Harrison is back, Billy Preston joins them, and the sound and the ambience is often heady and exhilarating.
Review of "The Beatles: Get Back" Part 1
I started watching Get Back with the absolute knowledge that The Beatles were and are one of the best things in my life, and easily THE best thing musically. For the past few years, I've listened to them about as much as to MSNBC on Sirius XM radio, which is to say, any and all the time I'm in the car driving by myself (see The Omnipotent Ear). Their arrival in the United States in 1964 coincided with my first serious girlfriend, Barbara (we met when she came to hear my doo-wop group sing at a Y on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx). By January 1969, the time we see the Beatles in the studio in Peter Jackson's The Beatles: Get Back, I was with Tina, who became my wife. We're still happily married, with wonderful children and grandchildren.
Review: HBO's The Sex Lives Of College Girls Is Surprisingly Tasteful
HBO's New Series, The Sex Lives of College Girls is a playful romp with excellent writing, sex-positive plot points, and even some social change. It's not at all what I expected, and I'm pleasantly surprised.
Character Review: Marge Simpson
S is a type of personality that often stays in the wrong relationship for a long time, as happened to Homer and Marge. Simpsons is a sitcom where the characters' personalities have not changed from one episode to another, so Marge remains the perfect woman of the family, always trying to improve her home, no matter how frustrating. In each episode, you can see a small part of his wishes that things might be different, but his attitude is to accept and appreciate the life he has.
