The Popdose Interview: Butch Vig of Garbage

I was not sure what to expect when I was given the opportunity to interview Butch Vig. As a producer, he has been behind some of the most intense records from the last 30 years. As a member of the band Garbage, he has been an integral piston in an engine that continues to crank out energetic, visceral, and challenging rock music to this day. With these in mind, one expects Vig to be equally intense. Yet our phone conversation revealed a super-chill, very thoughtful individual who is committed to...

Why Claire Danes Is Glad Carrie Has No Sex Life On Homeland

Homeland 's Carrie Mathison has got a lot going on in her life. Between advising the President-elect, exposing Dar Adal's nefarious fake news operation, raising her daughter Frannie, managing her own bipolar disorder, and trying to keep Peter Quinn alive, it's actually entirely realistic that Carrie doesn't have time for sex and dating. And Claire Danes, for one, is content with the fact that her character spends all her energy on her work, which she is crazy passionate about, as well as the ot...

Our Favorite Homeland Theories So Far

Homeland is known for giving its viewers a lot to think about.Sometimes I lay awake at night wondering if I would have the balls to do what Carrie Mathison does: " Did I miss my calling as an overseas CIA operative?"(Probably not.)Other times I contemplate Saul Berenson's eyebrows (so lush, so expressive), and whether Peter Quinn's abs or jawline are better chiseled. (It's a tie.)But in all seriousness, it's a mighty challenge to predict what the hell is going to happen next on the twisty thril...

Homeland's Peter Quinn Will Emotionally Destroy You

After watching the season 6 premiere of Homeland, which debuted December 30 on and will air on the network this Sunday January 15, I couldn't stop thinking about Peter Quinn, played by Rupert Friend.The strong, powerhouse CIA paramilitary officer is no longer the man we have come to know over the course of the last five seasons. In season 6, his spirit and body are broken; he's a discharged soldier recovering from both psychological and physical trauma.He's damaged, and it's incred...

Homeland's Elizabeth Marvel Shows Us What A Female President Would've Been Like

Elizabeth Marvel is Hollywood's vision of a woman with political power. As Heather Dunbar in Netflix’s political drama House of Cards, Marvel played a rising political star whose goal is to unseat no-good ethically challenged president Frank Underwood and assume the role of commander in chief herself. Now, she’s back with another political series, this time as the strong-willed but graceful-under-pressure President Elizabeth Keane on the new season of Homeland. Clearly the casting world and fan...
