Look at some amazing RVs, and the people who drive them in Going RV

Several years ago our former publisher did the whole bucket-list checkoff thing and rented an RV so he (along with his wife and three big dogs) could set out on a Midwest mini-roadtrip over the Thanksgiving holiday. Man, we were in awe — I mean how cool to finally rent one of those things and take to the open roads — and props to him for just having the guts to even drive that thing. While the stories that came out of that disastrous adventure could have been straight out of a National Lampoon movie (and could still support a … Continue reading

New to On Demand: Ride Along 2

New to On Demand: Ride Along 2

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart rekindle their comic chemistry in Ride Along 2, the sequel to the 2014 action-comedy Ride Along. While the smart cop/bumbling cop movie formula is all too familiar, the humor in this go-round is still centered around Hart and his shenanigans but is enhanced by an unusually diverse supporting cast that includes The Hangover’s Ken Jeong, The View’s Sherri Shepherd and Magic Mike’s Olivia Munn. A few things have changed since we last left the reluctant duo. James (Ice Cube) is still a hardcore detective at his Atlanta precinct and Ben Barber (Hart) … well, Ben … Continue reading

Soderbergh's new "The Girlfriend Experience" debuts tonight

Starz’s new steamy thinker The Girlfriend Experience is a reimagining of executive producer Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 film of the same name. The half-hour series stars the daring and beautiful Riley Keough (a.k.a. Elvis’ 26-year-old granddaughter) as Christine Reade, a second-year law student who is drawn into the world of a GFE (a girlfriend experience) or, more simply, a girl for hire who serves the needs of whatever her high-paying clients desire (sex or no sex). Keough describes her character as being somewhat void of emotion. “She’s not into intellectualizing her emotions, as she doesn’t really care about a lot of … Continue reading

Who won The Bachelor?

Who won The Bachelor

Tonight’s season finale of The Bachelor was definitely the biggest nailbiter in the series’ history. Bachelor Ben Higgins had us completely on edge — even he didn’t know who he was going to choose until the bitter end. Legitimately (and awkwardly) in love with both Lauren B and Jo Jo, Ben had these poor ladies in a state of cautious chaotic optimism right up to the end. Higgins struggled with his emotions, receiving no help from his family, nor any signs from above – it simply came down to the person he couldn’t imagine living his life without and that … Continue reading

Survivor recap: Unprecedented amount of Survivors need medical attention

Survivor: Kao Rong: Brains vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty, “Signed, Sealed and Delivered,” Season 32. Survivor recap episode 4 (original airdate March 9, 2016): In Survivor’s 32 seasons we’ve never, ever seen so many players collapse at one time. Jeff Probst was running from one player to the next during a reward challenge — calling on all medical personnel for an assist. It honestly was unsettling. And it was only Day 8, but the scorching heat and blazing sun combined with an exhausting challenge resulted in three players needing medical attention.
