What do “The Avengers,” “Lincoln,” “Django Unchained” and “The Hobbit” all have in common? Yes, they were all successful feature films, garnering critical praise and monetary success. But they share another similarity: none of them pass the Bechdel Test. While the structure of a written colu...

I can still vividly remember the moment I found out that Shaggy and Velma from “Scooby Doo,” one of my favorite childhood series, had become an item. Impossible! The characters weren’t supposed to change after I stopped watching. In fact, in my mind, it wasn’t even necessary for the show to continue...

When ABC’s “Modern Family” came on the air in 2009, it was hailed by many, including myself, as both hilarious and a pioneer of sorts. Chronicling the “modern” American family, the program documents the lives of grumpy patriarch Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neil) and his younger Columbian wife, Gloria...

A few weeks ago I started watching Aaron Sorkin’s old TV show “The West Wing,” and loved it. I cycled through the first season within a week, and went straight into the next season, not having to wait around for months to find out what happened. Meanwhile, I’m desperately waiting for my fa...

The political system, especially in America, is rarely portrayed in positive light in film and television. We use our free speech to criticize the government a lot, from the biting ...

There’s a lot of trash on TV right now, but it’s generally very diverse trash. You have the 20 identical cop/courtroom/medical shows spread across the major networks; you have the terrible reality television like “Jersey Shore” or “Toddlers in Tiaras.” Along with those of course, you h...

When I first saw an episode of ABC’s “Modern Family,” I was pleasantly surprised by the show’s candid and spot-on humor. It was gratifying to see a sitcom that could so accurately pick apart family relationships, especially with characters that on the surface seem like caricatures, but prove ...
