    Zach Dionne

    If you knew "Baby Got Back" was impeccably suited to an orchestral rendition, I owe you something nice. But until I get your prize together, we can sit together and bask in the glory of composer Gabriel Prokofiev and the Seattle Sympho...

    Zach Dionne

    It's been a scary world, these four years without vigilante snarl-master Jack Bauer around to save us. Fortunately Kiefer Sutherland's alter ego used the down time to master the art of saving the world in exactly half the time. Th...

  6. Apparently Steven Spielberg Wants to Remake 'West Side Story...

    Zach Dionne

  7. Afternoon Links: Would You Like to See Seth Meyers's Late Night S...

    Zach Dionne

    Well, so would he. The joint's not quite ready yet, but it does happen to be within spitting distance of SNL's Studio 8H. Once it's all built and Seth's new desk shows up and everything, Late Night will embark on a voyage fairly unlike the one charte...

  8. Afternoon Links: Tim Meadows Tells SNL to Shove It

    Zach Dionne

  9. Afternoon Links: Maya Rudolph's Big Moment Is Nigh

    Zach Dionne

    Maya Rudolph is coming back to NBC, and it's not to lend SNL a momentary famous black lady impression or to appear on a middling sitcom. It's to [OPRAH VOICE] HAVE HER OWN VARIETY SERIES! Or a pilot, at least. Lorne Michaels is producing, and Deadlin...

    Zach Dionne

    Don't even tell me you didn't catch SNL's immaculately detailed Wes Anderson tribute/homage, The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders. (It happened on Ed Norton's episode a couple Saturdays ago, and it's embedded again here for the uninitiated.) De...

  11. Afternoon Links: Jimmy Kimmel Remains a Halloween Candy Monster

    Zach Dionne

    There aren't words for the emotions kids go through when you tell them you ate all their Halloween candy; only YouTube compilations can come close to portraying the next-level sensations of agony and betrayal. Jimmy Kimmel knows this, and he has an a...

    Zach Dionne

    Breaking Bad sledgehammered its own viewership records over and over during its final eight-episode run, and Sunday night's disappointingly cat-free finale — very solid in other aspects, though! — was no exception. After last week's all-t...
