TV

When Chef Gordon Ramsay starts screaming in season fourteen of “Hell’s Kitchen,” we hope it won’t be directed at our friend Chef Brendan Pelley. Brendan was in studio this morning, with delectable fried chicken and the details on the Premiere Party at his Zebra’s Bistro and Wine Bar on Tuesday, March 3. More

A Look Into Leonard Nimoy’s Time in Boston’s West End
TV

Off of Cambridge Street downtown is the Charles River Plaza Shopping Center, a small complex in a compact area where medical workers from Mass General and residents of Beacon Hill can park their cars and buy groceries at Whole Foods. What they might not know, however, is that the land they are walking on was once a bustling residential neighborhood, razed in the name of urban renewal, which displaced families and residents, including actor Leonard Nimoy, known most famously as the half-Vulcan, half-Human Mr. Spock, second-in-command of the U.S.S. Enterprise. More

Chris Pratt Would Have Ended ‘Parks and Rec’ A Little Differently
TV

Proposed spinoffs notwithstanding, last night was the last episode of Parks and Recreation, the last time we’ll get to see Leslie Knope, Ron Swanson, Tom Haverford, and the whole Pawnee gang. The finale was an incredibly sweet swan song to the entire cast, showing **spoiler alert** what the distant future held for every major character. But if the ensemble’s comments during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers are to be believed, Chris Pratt had a very different (and very morbid) idea for how to end the show. More

Fans of Paul Reubens and Pee-wee Herman, feel free to scream – the secret word is “Netflix,” and there’s plenty of reason to say it. Reubens, along with producer Judd Apatow and writer Paul Rust (Comedy Bang! Bang! and Arrested Development) have signed on to produce Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, a feature film that will begin production next month and premiere exclusively on Netflix (AHHHHH!). More

This Gritty Power Rangers Reboot with James Van Der Beek Is the Stuff of Nightmares
Video

Change the way you think of a fan video – filmmaker Joseph Kahn (Torque, Dentention) has created an homage to the Power Rangers that’s on par the Christopher Nolan Batman films in terms of special effects, casting and dark subject matter. James Van der Beek (Dawson’s Creek) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) star in a new short film Power/Rangers, an action-packed, R-rated fifteen minutes that’s part superhero movie, part Tarantino.

10 ‘Parks and Rec’ Spinoffs We’d Definitely Watch
TV

Tonight, Parks and Recreation, one of the best American comedies of this century, comes to a close with an hour-long finale at 10/9c. Through seven seasons, we’ve grown to love the familial bonds of friendship formed by Leslie Knope, Ron Swanson, April Ludgate, and the rest of the cast. But what truly made Parks and Rec incredible was its commitement to fleshing out the city of Pawnee, building the largest universe of secondary characters in a television show since The Simpsons.

Everyone Is Happy and Rich at the Oscars Afterparty
TV

There were three types of people who left the Oscars on Sunday night: the winners, the losers and the hundreds of people who had just gone for fun and were stir crazy after a three and a half hour ceremony. Cue the afterparty– arguably the only time during this whole superficial day that the stars can relax and throw a few back. More
