Don't you get tired of so-called "experts" telling us younger generations that "television will rot your brain"? Don't you wonder if they've ever taken the time to sit down with a remote and explore that theory for themselves?

Seriously, TV gets a bad rep, like it ruins our health or something. But what some people fail to recognize is that a lot of shows do more than just flaunt hot actors in promiscuous scenes; they actually speak to the audience. Let me prove it to all the haters out there - below is a list of 14 inspirational TV quotes to either start or end your day with. That's right....

Sometimes we want to forget who we are and just disappear. But, imagine if this really happened to you due to a traumatic event.

This is the storyline behind a recent episode of NBC’s long-running drama series “Law & Order: SVU.” In ‘Exile,’ actress Aimée Spring Fortier stepped in the shoes of an assault victim suffering from such a disorder – and she’s completely unaware of it when she wakes up in a hospital with no memory.

In real life, Aimée isn’t disappearing from our screens anytime soon. In fact, she’s scheduled to emerge again on NBC’s newest drama series, “The...

Kids aren’t so charmed by hocus pocus and abracadabra magic these days. It’s all about “Upside-Down Magic,” which is the new Disney Channel original movie based on the fantasy children’s book series by Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle, and Emily Jenkins.

The film follows Nory Boxwood Horace (Izabela Rose), a 13-year-old girl who enters the Sage Academy for Magical Studies. When her best friend is placed in the cool class and Nory lands in a class of unconventional UDM (upside-down magic) misfits, she sets out to prove her abilities are as good as anyones.

Today you’re chasing down bad guys and tomorrow you are the bad guy. That’s the life of make-believe that every actor enjoys.

One such actor is Scott Subiono, who recently portrayed good guy DEA Agent Tony Marino leading the hunt for drug dealers in the second season of John Singleton’s FX series “Snowfall.” Set in the 80’s, the show sets forth a gritty and dangerous tale of the rise of crack cocaine in Los Angeles.

In the episode titled “Sal’s Pizza,” Mary joins in the chaos, alongside Terry Crews and Chelsea Peretti, as a ‘goofy-geek’ interviewing for a job at the precinct.

Cry away, it's okay!
A warning before beginning this article: although all of these series are concluded, some for several years, I will provide a spoiler alert for Ally McBeal, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and 8 Simple Rules for those who are that touchy about learning about major events in shows they haven't watched.

----------------------------------

Death. Everyone does it. And television shows often use death for a season's climax, knowing that the loss of a loved character will anguish (but entertain) viewers. But there are few that actually cause audiences to cry. As a TV & movie viewer who tends to prefer...

The Dutton’s face new enemies, new problems and new episodes in the third season of “Yellowstone”. Paramount Networks popular western drama series kicked off recently and one new recurring addition is actress Ashley Erin Campbell.

Introduced during the “Freight Trains and Monsters” episode, Ashley pops up throughout the season as Beth Dutton’s (Kelly Reilly) newest assistant, Susan. And, unfortunately Beth has previously proven a total B to her underlings, so all we can say is – good luck!

The backbone of any television show is the “character” actor. These are the men and women who you might not remember by name, but you recognize their face. And, when they do their job right – they elevate the show to another level.

One such actor who has burst onto television screens everywhere is Cory Blevins. He recently appeared as FBI Special Agent Buchholz in EPIX original comedy series, “Get Shorty,” chasing down Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd.

If you take a bit of quirk, a dash of empathy and a pinch of acceptance, then send it off to the Renaissance Faire – you get the new Lifetime dramedy series “American Princess.”

Created by writer-actress Jamie Denbo and executive produced by "Orange is the New Black" team Jenji Kohan, Tara Herrmann and Mark A. Burley, this slightly raunchy comedy follows a Manhattan socialite (Georgia Flood) who runs off to join the Renaissance Faire after her wedding crashes. Of course, her actions aren’t going over very well with family and friends, including her superficial and not-so-bright bestie...

I love TV shows, movies just can't compare. That being said, I haven't watched many TV shows, I'm picky and most don't appeal. (No vampires, romance shows for instance, just don't like them, most popular shows fit in those categories, but hey this is my list and my opinions, not anyone else's) Currently these are my favorite shows starting with the greatest show out there:



1. 24

(9 seasons and TV movie, 2001-2010, 2014)



24 is the best show of all time! It's easily #1, none can come even close for me ever! Agent Jack Bauer works for CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) dealing with (terrorists) assassination...

I bet about half of you are already planning on eating me alive or feeding me to a polar bear just for the title. You don't have to read this. You can turn back now and just pretend you never saw it. No one will ever know. =P

The Lost/Walking Dead thing just kind of popped up in the early hours of the morning when I was trying to get to sleep. I started writing stuff down, wondering if it would make sense when I was fully conscious. It did. So here you go - a rough list of similarities between characters from The Walking Dead and Lost.

Notes: Most of the Lost stuff applies more to the early...

Ever wonder what it would be like to work for the CIA, solve national security issues and take orders from a TV star?

Actress CHRISTINE GARVER has done exactly that. She first came into the storyline last year, but disappeared for a bit. Now, she’s back – and ready to help the team tackle the latest global issues plaguing the White House.
