With presents nestled under the Christmas tree and family members to avoid, what better time to pop in an episode of your favorite show? While holiday-themed episodes are often hit-or-miss, they’ve also churned out some of the best hours and half-hours of television that you can throw on in the background while you wrap your presents.
Christmas-themed TV episodes offer a wonderful alternative to the myriad of saccharine Christmas movies, with stories ranging from profoundly uplifting to hopelessly bleak. A good chaser after watching The Holiday for the umpteenth time.

Not many people pay attention to commercials on TV anymore, mostly because we’re either streaming content with limited to no commercials, or we’re just watching stuff on our DVR that just allows us to fast forward through them. But while watching the Golden Globes live this past weekend, a recent ad from AT&T caught my eyes (actually, my ears first) because it mashed up a ton of movies and TV shows.
In a new AT&T advertisement promoting the ability to watch a plethora of movies and TV shows on demand from your phone, you’ll find references to Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Game of Thrones, Knight Rider, Cheers, Rocky, Breaking Bad, Sex and the City, Seinfeld, Sesame Street and more.

Even though the series finale of Seinfeld was considered disappointing by some, you can’t deny the series is one of the best comedies that television has seen in the past 25 years. One of the more bold moments from the show’s run was the death of Susan Biddle Ross, the on-and-off girlfriend and eventual fiancée of Jason Alexander‘s character George Costanza.
Beyond being a surprising story twist, however, there was never really any explanation as to why Susan (played by Heidi Swedberg) was killed off. But Alexander recently opened up about why Susan was killed, and it didn’t sound very nice at first. But then he eventually clarified after the story went viral.

Dalton’s first solo show is called On A Mission From God and it opens at 6 p.m. April 4 at Spoke Art in San Francisco. It consists of a wide variety of pop culture influenced art from a small new series called “Greatest Moments in Film,” more traditions limited edition prints brimming with hilarious and unique detail, and even homemade toys and games.

What a great time for ’90s nostalgia. The Backstreet Boys are touring again, crop tops are coming back into fashion, and Disney is going ahead with the Boy Meets World spinoff Girl Meets World. Now we also have reunions from the Seinfeld and Full House casts to look forward to.
While appearing on the WFAN show Boomer & Carton yesterday, Jerry Seinfeld confirmed that the “big, huge, gigantic” project he’s been working on with Larry David is indeed a Seinfeld reunion, as has been rumored. He declined to give details, however, saying only that Jason Alexander would play George Costanza, and that other characters from the show would also be involved.
Seinfeld said that the “secret project,” which he described as a “short-ish form” one-off, was neither a Super Bowl commercial nor a Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode — but that “it is not not those things, either.” Whatever it is, we shouldn’t have to wait long to see it, as Seinfeld also promised that it’d be released “very, very soon.” [Variety]
After the jump, the men of Full House, who’ve already re-teamed for an Super Bowl ad, tease a potential sequel with “a twist.”

When something becomes as ingrained in popular culture as Seinfeld, anything the show touched became larger than life. George Steinbrenner, the Soup Nazi, “faking it,” the list of things Seinfeld defined or changed forever is long. Near the top of the list has to be Tom’s Restaurant, a diner in New York City that was shown in nearly every episode as the primary hangout of Jerry, Kramer, George and Elaine. Though it opened in the 1940s, fifty years later the show turned Tom’s into quite the tourist attraction.
Now, director Gian Franco Morini is exploring the history of that restaurant, both related to Seinfeld and not, in a documentary called Tom’s Restaurant. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
