Continuing my Christmastime period of “nothing new is on TV, so I may as well catch up on stuff I missed,” I spent the last few evenings becoming familiar with NBC’s “Sleepy Hollow,” which is far better and more charming than it has any right to be. But this isn’t an article about how good surprisingly good “Sleepy Hollow” is, because I got distracted by something that happened in one of the early episodes.
Yes, one moment in particular caught my eye, a moment when one character has to cast a spell that requires human blood. What does he do? He slices open the palm of his hand with a knife.
Augh! Why do they always slice open their palm?!Read More »from I Just Don’t Get It: Why do spell-casters always slice open the palms of their hands?

It’s that time of year again: mid-December, when all of our favourite shows go on winter hiatus and there’s nothing good to watch on television. And now that most of us have the magic of Netflix in our lives, that means it’s also the time of year when we fill our evenings with all of the terrible, Christmas-themed, made-for-TV movies that the on-demand service has bought the rights to.
That’s right: I watched “The 12 Dates of Christmas” completely voluntarily. Why did I do it? I’d like to say it’s because I’m in the holiday spirit, or that it’s cold outside and I was bored, but honestly, I really don’t know.Read More »from I Just Don’t Get It: Why did I watch ‘The 12 Dates of Christmas’?

To begin, let me state that I am aware that while celebrities may live their lives in the spotlight, the choices they make in their personal lives are their own. They are free to love whomever they choose, and break up with whomever they choose, and the general public has no say in these decisions, -- nor should they.
But with Gosling turning 33 earlier this week, and McAdams turning 35 on Nov. 17, it needs to be said: why can’t you two crazy kids work things out?!
Come on, you guys! You were so great in “The Notebook” -- a movie I don’t even like that much! That movie would have crashed and burned if its stars hadn’t been so great. But Gosling and McAdams took their real-life chemistry and broughtRead More »from I Just Don’t Get It: Why don’t Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams get back together?

Mindy Kaling is great. She’s brilliant and funny, her Twitter feed is the thing dreams are made of, and she just seems like the kind of celebrity you’d be best friends with if only she would respond to your letters. (Uh, hypothetically.) And her FOX sitcom “The Mindy Project” isn’t perfect, but it’s still incredibly watchable and usually features at least two guffaw-worthy moments an episode. Kaling is a role model for women around the world, and more people should aspire to be like her.
But one of Kaling’s decisions is impossible to support: the “Mindy Project” theme song is just horrible.
The “Mindy Project” theme song has to rank among one of the worst ever. It’s incredible grating to listen to, and it doesn’t even fit with the tone of the show itself. You’d expect this theme song to go with anRead More »from I Just Don’t Get It: Why is the ‘Mindy Project’ theme song so terrible?

By now, almost everyone who watches “How I Met Your Mother” knows that Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) is the most annoying character on the show. In fact, he’s got to make the top 5 list of most irritating characters on television. He’s neurotic, kind of rude, treats women badly, and is really, really pretentious – so pretentious, in fact, that the show itself produced an entire episode in Season 5 about Ted going to a party filled with snobs and, of course, having the time of his life.
Basically, for most of “How I Met Your Mother’s” nine-season run, it was obvious that the show would be vastly improved if Ted were just written out completely – even though that was obviously impossible, given the central premise of the show. (The possible exception to the “get rid of Ted” attitude would be Season 2 of the show, which many consider “HIMYM’s” best year. Not only did it include the classic “Slap Bet” episode and other funny installments like “Swarley” and “Stuff,” but it also made us care about Ted and Robin’s relationship despite the fact that we all knew it was doomed – a feat the writers haven’t been able to repeat with any of Ted’s subsequent relationships. Especially not the one with Zoey, whom we will henceforth pretend never existed.) Apparently, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas thought Ted’s personality was hilarious and decided that the more they exaggerated those characteristics, the better.
So, fans of the show were forced to accept that Ted was going to stick around -- but hey, at least we still got to watch Marshall, Lily, Robin, and Barney, right? And they’re pretty awesome, aren’t they?
But in “HIMYM’s” current, and final, season, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that the writers are struggling. Last year, the cast and crew were clearly operating onRead More »from I Just Don’t Get it: Why are all the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ characters so insufferable?

Kate Middleton and Prince William (Getty Images)It's official! Kate Middleton and Prince William's unborn child has his or her own lullaby.
Who needs "Hush, Little Baby" when British composer Paul Mealor will write a song about you? Mealor, 37, composed music for the royal couple's April 29 nuptials and now he's written a ditty aptly named, "Sleep On," so their baby will have sweet, regal dreams.
"After writing music for the Royal Wedding, it seemed natural to provide the musical accompaniment for the next stage of the royal couple’s journey together," Mealor shared in a statement.
The famous composer enlisted the help of songbird Hayley Westenra, who will include the lullaby on her new album of lullabies, "Hushabye."Read More »from Kate Middleton and Prince William’s Baby Nabs Royal Lullaby

Finally — Kristen Stewart has addressed her relationship status with Robert Pattinson. The only problem? Well, we're left with more questions than answers.
While appearing on the "Today" show Wednesday, the "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2" actress was asked point blank whether she and Pattinson were officially back together. "Funny you mention that," Stewart replied. "I'm going to just let people watch whatever little movie they think our lives are. Keep 'em guessing, I always say."Read More »from Kristen Stewart breaks her silence about her relationship with Robert Pattinson

It's been more than a month since Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger announced their engagement, and it looks like "Chavril" is still going strong. So strong, in fact, that the "Nickelback" frontman had a bit of a surprise for his beloved for her 28th birthday.
Performing in front of thousands of fans in Munich, Germany on Wednesday night, Kroeger shocked the crowd when he brought an embarrassed-looking Lavigne out on stage. Kroeger then led the crowd in a very loud rendition of "Happy Birthday," much to Lavigne's (and the fans') delight.Read More »from Chad Kroeger and his legions of fans sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Avril Lavigne
