The 15 Best Odd Couples In Television History

Unusual duos are always a blast — there's something exciting about two very different people who manage to have a deep friendship. It's also the foundation for a lot of friction, which is the heart of good storytelling. Over the years there have been dozens of television odd couples. One series, "The Odd Couple," took the trope to extremes in 1970, following the adventures of Felix and Oscar, two recently divorced men forced to live together. The HBO series "Succession" has given us a new terrib...

Killington Kicks off the season with the 2021 Loaded Turkey Rail Jam

Words By Austin Poulin; Photos/Video by Brooke Geery I heard about the Loaded Turkey Rail Jam, an annual competition at held Killington Resort in Vermont, through some friends. I have wanted to go for the past couple years, so I on Nov. 18, 2021, I packed my car in Washington DC, and drove 9 hours up to Killington to check it out. This was my third competition, ever, and it was the best competition I have been to yet! Riding all weekend was a blast, and the actual event on Saturday, Nov. 20 was...

All The Hawkeye Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed In The First Two Episodes

The first two episodes of "Hawkeye" are streaming now on Disney+, and just like every other project in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are plenty of Easter eggs to behold. Since much of the show's underlying villainous plot is still kept under wraps, some of these Easter eggs just might hint at what "Hawkeye" is setting up for the future of the MCU. While one theory ties into the reveal of Kang the Conqueror at the end of "Loki," another theory speculates about the possibility of bringing i...

Everything Hawkeye's Opening Credits Sequence Tells Us About Kate Bishop

"Hawkeye" has arrived on Disney+ today! The first two episodes of the latest TV series from Marvel Studios are here, and it starts in quite an unexpected way. Flashing back to 2012, we learn that new character Kate Bishop (played by young Clara Stack before Hailee Steinfeld takes over in present day) was caught up in the Battle of New York waged between The Avengers and Loki and his Chitauri alien army. The opening sequence reveals how Hawkeye saved little Kate Bishop from a Chitauri soldier who...

Lin-Manuel Miranda Admits Movie Musicals Are Really Weird, But Knows How To Make It Work [Exclusive]

Lin-Manuel Miranda has no good reason to be nervous about writing songs for a Disney movie, but he is. For starters, this isn't his first go-round with the House of Mouse -- the actor-playwright previously penned songs for the Polynesian-focused tale "Moana" in 2016, earning him a best original song Oscar nomination for "How Far I'll Go." Two years later, Miranda would play the chimney-sweeping Jack in the musical sequel "Mary Poppins Returns," and in 2020 the Disney+ streaming service would pic...

14 Shows Like Schitt's Creek You Need To See

There's nothing more satisfying than watching a genuinely funny, warm-hearted sitcom find an audience and, more importantly, be given time to develop a niche following instead of being cancelled immediately. "Schitt's Creek" was an unexpected hit, with each season introducing more and more people to the show who would quickly become diehard fans. The journey of the privileged Roses from comically out-of-touch one-percenters to a loving, supportive, emotionally healthy family was perhaps one of t...

Hawkeye Review: Jeremy Renner And Hailee Steinfeld Are Superb In Marvel's Street-Level Superhero Series

More often than not, Hawkeye has been a punchline in Marvel Comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only is he one of only two members of the Avengers without superpowers, but his weapon of choice is a bow and arrow. However, in the pages of comics, Matt Fraction and David Aja revealed a new side to the archery-adept Avenger, and Marvel Studios is about to do the same by adapting their comic book run into the "Hawkeye" TV series coming to Disney+ on November 24.Based on the first two episo...

Every Francis Ford Coppola Feature Ranked From Worst To Best

Out of all the New Hollywood directors to launch their careers in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Francis Ford Coppola is without a doubt one of the most famous. This is partially a result of his string of hits throughout the 1970s, many of which are serious contenders in any conversation about the best films ever made. But when you talk about Francis Ford Coppola, you also have to discuss the veritable film dynasty he would become the head of — it's sort of like "The Godfather," only with a bun...

Leonardo DiCaprio's 15 Best Films, Ranked

Since the early 1990s, Leonardo DiCaprio has been wowing audiences around the world. His career has served as a model for young actors who rise to fame quickly, and feel pressure to avoid being typecast in teen heartthrob roles. Rather than settling into a comfortable, if creatively uninspired, run of romantic lead performances, DiCaprio purposefully sought out challenging opportunities that would prove his range.And for a long time, these efforts went unrewarded. Despite being one of the most f...

Will There Ever Be A Jack Frost 2? Here's What We Know

Six years after Michael Keaton stepped down as the caped crusader and transitioned into a successful career as a dramatic lead in films like "Much Ado About Nothing," "Multiplicity," and "Jackie Brown," Keaton also starred in the heartwarming Christmas film, "Jack Frost." In this wildly depressing family fantasy film, Keaton plays a would-be rockstar named, you guessed it, Jack Frost, who tragically dies in a car accident on the drive home to spend Christmas with his family. Luckily, he's also t...

Tasty Twin: A stylish Honda CX500 café racer from London
