Cooking will never be the same again. One-half of BBC Television's Two Fat Ladies - Clarissa Dickson Wright - passed away at the age of 66. She was the last remaining star of the show; Jennifer Paterson died previously in 1999.
Louise Lasser - sure. Sinead O'Connor - okay. But Milton Berle? The list of unwelcome guests on Saturday Night Live contains a few surprises. Some of the stories behind why they were never asked back are weird and some are pretty funny in retrospect.
As you know I am a huge paranormal fan. So, I have decided to rate paranormal TV shows. There have been a few new ones this year, and there have been some new seasons of some good ones. Here's my top 5 of 2013.
First - an admission: I've never watched the show Breaking Bad. In fact, I wasn't even aware of its existence until after the final episode aired and friends of mine started talking about "Felina" around the office. The name instantly peaked my attention - as a life-long country music fan; I recognized the name Felina as the female character in the 1959 song "El Paso".
It's a growing trend. First it was at the airport - where travelers were subjected to watching the airlines in-house television network. Then, the proprietary channels started showing up at gas pumps, where drivers could get news updates and information on small screens that were built right into the pumps themselves. Now, it appears that the world's largest fast food restaurant is getting into the game as McDonalds gets ready to launch their own in-restaurant television network.
I've said for a long time now that Kelly Clarkson has talent. In a society where reality television too often awards contestants recording contracts when they shouldn't, Clarkson has been a refreshing breathe of fresh air - delivering on the promise
I watch the Food Network from time to time. Okay, I watch Food Network a lot more than I care to admit. Ina Garten and Alex Guarneschelli are two of my personal favorites. Bobby Flay has grown on me (my first impression of Flay as cocky and self-centered has softened) - and so has Guy Fieri (who, when he's not criss-crossing the country visiting greasy spoons, actually has some pretty-decent cooking chops).
Jenny might be from the block, but not the blocks she drove through for a recent Fiat commercial. In recent commercials for the auto manufacturer, Jennifer Lopez is seen driving through the Bronx neighborhood - where she grew up
Celebrity-chef Emeril Legasse teased at it. Science-fiction writers longed for it. Tech-heads have hoped for it. But, it appears that "smell-o-vision" may just become a reality.
If French design company Olf-action gets their way, gamers and movie-lovers will soon be able to add another dimension to the already-exciting world of entertainment
