Continuing with the observations of "in my humble opinion," there seems to be one moment in "Pilot" in which each member of the Chase family echoes Angela (or vice versa): Graham's "strangling" motion with the hand towel, a visible but subtle expression of his anger at Patty, echoes Angela's thought...

It's tangential relationship with the original TV show didn't help at all: critics were expecting something else entirely.

Nothing to add but agreement that Claire/Angela's smile is indeed heart-breaking.

My girlfriend -- who's now a thousand miles away from me -- hides a very similar smile behind a usually shy exterior.

Since films are perhaps the most collaborative of art forms, it may have been the case that Ms. Danes picked some projects that looked good on paper but merely faltered on execution -- poor direction, bad marketing, whatever. I've seen Polish Wedding, To Gillian, Les Miserables, Brokedown Palace and...

On the question of whether Ms. Danes is too thin... I'm going to have to conclude that that's just her natural build, and I think I can say why I believe that. Just from Dave and Conan, I think her arms and legs are, well, normal. It just seems to me that those who are skinny to an unhealthy degree ...

I don't if she's thin for her build or just naturally lanky. But I digress.

Just to confirm: there is no "leftback" position in football. Or, as the rest of the world calls the greatest sport this planet has ever seen, "American football." As in real life, the cliques at Liberty High tend to stick together. If memory serves, Jordan and Kyle were never in the same building t...

No more jumpy than usual, in m'humble opinion. She has always seemed a bit hyperactive on late-night talk shows, though -- unlike many her age -- she seems quite intelligent and (more-or-less) down-to-Earth. My theory? I don't think she's done a lot of acting in front of an audience - theater, live ...

I've become quite the fan of Luhrmann's "Red Curtain" cinema (R+J, Moulin Rouge, Simply Ballroom), and from the commentaries and behind-the-scenes material, this is what I've gathered: Romeo + Juliet is NOT just "Hamlet in Hawaii," Shakespeare set in a different environment for the sake of novelty. ...

Yeah, I think my high school did Our Town while I attended. And you know why schools pick Our Town? It's the easy choice for the drama teacher. Catering to the actors, the lines are fairly straight-forward and easy to memorize. And, in an appeal to the audience (and the parents and the school board)...

The lighter her hair gets, the less attractive I find her. There's no arguing personal preference, of course. There is something to be said for the theory that some people's appearances tend to favor one hair color or another. Very few people have fair enough skin to look good with red hair, for ex...

No doubt about it, Claire was - and is - gorgeous. I admit: I had a HUGE crush on Ms. Danes back in the day. Okay, I still have quite the crush on her, but I digress. There's a rational explanation behind my crush: I REALLY loved MSCL from the very beginning -- I was a sophomore, same as Angela & Co...

Let's add Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) to the list - which version do you prefer: Darlene Love, U2, or Mariah Carey? U2. Def. Jewel's "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" (sung with her mom) is worth mentioning just because it's so freaking bizarre. I'm a fan of Jewel's, and I'm STILL speechless. ...

24 is the coolest show on right now. (SPOILERS AHOY.) I really liked the first season, but it had severe moments of cheesiness, particularly after 1:00 pm, with Drazen and that dreadful bout of amnesia. (This makes perfect sense; like most series they likely had the first 13 hours plotted out and st...
