What’s “Odd” is new again: Matthew Perry reboots The Odd Couple for CBS

One could excuse Matthew Perry if he feels snakebit. Since Friends disbanded in 2004, Perry has led respectable but ultimately rejected efforts in Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Mr. Sunshine and Go On. Fortunately, Perry’s latest project, a sitcom reboot of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple, has a few things going for it that his previous attempts did not. It’s got a solid foundation of well-known source material from the 1968 Jack Lemmon/Walter Matthau film and the 1970s Tony Randall/Jack Klugman TV series. It’s got an incredibly simple premise. And it’s on CBS, who’s giving it a plum premiere […]

The Walking Dead returns Sunday: Can the group regroup in the wake of new losses?

Quick catch-up, Walking Dead fans. When Season 5 reached its wrenching midseason finale in November, we’d lost Bob and Beth, the safety of the church and all hope for a cure in Washington, D.C., to assorted bad decision-making — and discovered we hadn’t lost Morgan (Lennie James) after all. So what does that mean for the Grimes crew moving forward — especially poor Maggie (Lauren Cohan), who has watched every last member of her family die horribly? “We’re going to see Maggie in a way that we’ve never seen her and, I think, fighting a dark side that she’s always […]

As a son of prominent New York real estate mogul Seymour Durst, Robert Durst was born into a life of privilege and endless opportunity. But it didn’t shelter him from tragedy.
