Summer’s best and worst in entertainment

Summer is often a mixed bag when it comes to entertainment. Good films are usually sandwiched between awful, loud shoot-um-ups, TV shows are light, fluffy summer fun, and the radio is inundated with guilty pleasure music that we'll swear we hated by the time winter rolls around.


“The Killing,” a complex and twisted murder mystery

As a devoted "Twin Peaks" fan, I rolled my eyes every time I saw the trailer for the new AMC drama, "The Killing."


Actors and execution save “Breakout Kings”

The key to good television is believability. Regardless of the story, the characters have to be people you want to know and the writing strong enough that you're willing to follow the characters anywhere.


Finally, a little “Sunshine” in our sitcoms

‘Idol’ hopeful makes Omaha stop

There are many stops on the road to becoming the next ‘American Idol.' For Caleb Halwey, Omaha is one of them.


The angriest man on TV returns for another round

Elmore Leonard is arguably one of the greatest American writers in history.  His work has been adapted many times for both TV and the big screen. Some adaptations have been exceptionally good, such as "Jackie Brown" or "Out of Sight." Others not so much, as was the case with the TV show "Karen Sisco" and the movie "The Big Bounce."

 A vampire, a werewolf and a ghost living together sounds like the beginning of a really bad joke, or at the very least, a really bad ‘tween book.


Is “Supernatural” the best underrated show on TV?

Rabid fans can turn any TV show, especially science fiction shows, into huge sensations.

Six years ago when the CW, still known as the WB, debuted "Supernatural," it had all the making of that rabid-inducing fandom. Cool stories, great characters, amazing writing and a really cool car.
