If you were to go back and watch the first season of The Big Bang Theory, it would feel like a completely different show.  In the beginning, the CBS comedy centered around just three of the characters — Leonard, Sheldon, and Penny — with Howard and Raj playing more of a secondary role.  But as [...]

As it goes into its 12th season, The Voice remains a solid ratings draw — in fact, the singing competition was the No. 9 show of the 2015-2016 TV season, tied for its second-best finish ever.  Part of the reason for the show’s continued success is its willingness to shake up its panel of judges; [...]

The LEGO Movie became one of 2014’s surprise box-office hits, taking in more than $250 million in its theatrical run. So it’s hardly surprising that the LEGO team reassembled for a follow-up.  It’s not really a sequel as much as it is a spin-off, since this film belongs to the Batman characters introduced in the [...]

One of the things that has made This Is Us so refreshingly watchable is the way it has treated its marriages.  They’re neither storybook fairy tales nor nightmares… they just feel real.  The best example might be Randall and Beth Pearson’s marriage; Sterling K. Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson shared their thoughts about playing the [...]
