You know what's lame? When you're watching a sweet action movie that you love so far, and everything's going well, stuff is blowing up, and then the finale ends up being nothing more than the hero saving a damsel in distress. It's so common, and it's so boring. The damsel in distress story is just so trite at this point.

It's Norman Reedus' birthday and what better way to honor the AMC hit than by worshiping the favored and deeply flawed Daryl Dixon? (In case you didn't catch that, it was a reference to Judas. Norman Reedus stars as Judas in Lady Gaga's video for "Judas." Got all that? Good.)
The 19th season of 'The Bachelor' is here, and it was absolute perfection because it was three hours of terrible reality TV and the sexy Chris Soules. Here are the most WTF moments from 'The Bachelor' premiere.
Downton Abbey is come back full force—and we are ready! If you've watched the trailer, you already know some of things to expect this season that will turn the Abbey upside down. A fire threatens the abbey along with the people who live in it, an affair may break up a marriage that is essential to the show and in general things are changing since things are progressing more into the '20s.
We've been waiting for this day for years and for those of us who didn't own all 10 seasons on DVD we celebrated the new year (and our day off) with a full day of Friends. Let's be honest though, we were too hungover to move off the couch today anyways. In case you didn't already know, Netflix released every single episode of the hit NBC show as the best 2015 present they could give us, so now we can be even less productive while we veg out during our marathon.
Dustin Diamond was once known for being Samuel "Screech" Powers on Saved By The Bell. He's still mostly known for that, but also for being generally gross and actually a kind of sad, tragically fallen child star. And now, the nerd we all used to love is also maybe a stabber. Diamond was charged with second-degree reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon after he confessed to stabbing a guy in a Wisconsin bar, as you do.
To put it mildly: A lot of crazy things happened in 2014. Even though it felt like the year flew by, there were so many occurrences that a lot of people completely forgot happened this year until they were reminded just recently. Luckily, we've been spending our last few weeks of 2014 looking back on everything that went on. In the pop culture world, it felt like a new celebrity we love shocked with us a huge scandal once a month.
Congratulations to Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello! The Modern Family vixen and Magic Mike hunk are engaged! After flashing a sparkler around Hawaii, a source confirmed to Page Six that the pair, who first hooked up publicly in July, are engaged, adding, "They are very happy and very much in love."
Apparently, not everyone thinks Chris Rock is all that funny ... and apparently it's not enough to say "I think I love my wife." The comedian/movie star is getting divorced from his wife, with whom he shares two children. They've been married since 1996, so in terms of Hollywood standards, he's been married for several lifetimes. (I also just found out that Chris Rock has the same birthday as me, but none of the news outlets are covering that. What a bunch of jerks.)
The countdown to the last season of Parks and Recreation, a show we totally love, has begun, and it is "literally" the saddest we have ever felt, ever. Last season we said goodbye to Ann Perkins and Chris Traeger, which was hard, but now we have to say good bye to Leslie, April, Tom, Andy and yes, we are even going to miss Jerry/Larry/Garry/Terry.
