"The Purge" Series Premiere

“The Purge” is precisely the worst type of TV show, but not because it is a wholesale trainwreck.

Netflix's 'Paradise PD'

As it stands, the overall show is largely forgettable, and an infusion of some serious notes would give it more heft and allow the series to stand-out among its competitors.

The young stars of 'America to Me'

America is in the midst of an identity crisis. A nation supposedly built on a foundation of equality, acceptance and opportunity is currently masked by the ugly light of hate, bigotry and hopelessness. Pop culture is attempting to help Americans understand what is happening to their country.

American Woman

It has been 23 years since the world was first introduced to Alicia Silverstone as the plaid-clad, “as if” spouting star of the cult classic movie “Clueless.” Since then, she has largely kept out of the spotlight, every so often featuring in small screen and big screen productions that don’t garner vast public attention.

Dietland

The world envisioned by Marti Noxon’s new AMC series “Dietland” feels both frighteningly real and achingly distant.
