    Exploring the roots of our pumpkin-carving obsession
      Carving pumpkins is sort of like eating pancakes: all exciting at first, and then you get sick of it halfway through.

  • The River

    River creator Oren Peli compares his horror formula to getting a cavity filled.
      With weekly story arcs based on cultural mysticism, cryptic folklore and jungle hocus-pocus, each episode wants to be a mini-frightfest lurking in the larger mystery: Where is Emmet? Why is the Amazon such a bitch to foreigners?.

    Fine, buy why now?

    Like Dane Cook with lady parts
      In her sitcom, Whitney, which she created and stars in, Whitney (Cummings) and Alex (Chris Dâeuro;™Elia) are an unmarried couple living in a big-city loft apartment straight out of an Anthropologie catalogue. They donâeuro;™t have jobs. Theyâeuro;™re always meeting friends for drinks.

  • I Hate My Teenage Daughter

    The creative team behind this series should be sent to their rooms to think about what they've done.
      We know teens are mercurial, âeuro;œlike Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,âeuro;� as my mom would say. The catty kerfuffles between Nikki and her entitled beeyotch of a 14-year-old daughter, MacKenzie (Aisha Dee), are crass and not the least bit funny or enlightening. Why settle for this hokey glop when weâeuro;™ve got Modern Family.

    MTV2 only scratches the surface of male behavior.
      âeuro;œBottle service is a waste of money,âeuro;� says Charlamagne Tha God, one of 17 C-list celebrities giving viewers advice on the cannons of manhood. Thanks, but nightclub high-rollers who can afford to drop $200-$400 on a fifth of Patron arenâeuro;™t watching MTV2.

    Zooey Deschanel's hipster schtick is actually more 'adorkable' than expected
      I figured that as an “adorkable” elementary teacher who moves in with three dudes after her boyfriend cheats on her, Jess Day (Deschanel) would be an exhausted reprisal of Deschanel’s recurring typecast (the off-beat, beautiful quirky girl who listens to obscure indie music and shops at second-hand/vintage stores), like in Yes Man.

    Five big questions for the new television season
      There are a lot of shows premiering. Most of them will suck. Many will fail. Here are some of the big fall storylines that may keep you watching, though, even if what you’re watching is a (figurative) train wreck..

    Cinemax's first primetime drama seems awfully ... Cinemax-y.
      Inside the pre-fab Section 20 command center, a pixie-haired colonel resembling a youthful Judy Dench eternally hovers over a glass veneer. She furrows her brow at flashing screens. Technical doodads blink in the background. Throw in Pierce Brosnan and you’d have Die Another Day.

    You thought Captain Sig was tough, but he didn't have four feet of shag carpet hanging off his face.
      At some point, however, the novelty of phenomenal facial hair exhausts its own wow factor. You begin to ponder the entanglement between identity and fawned-over fuzz, and digress: To what extent would these men be severing their sense of self if they bushwhacked their whiskers?.

    The teen musical series gets its own boot camp.
      During eliminations, we’re spared the melodramatic monologues of reality host babble (I’m talking to you, Tyra Banks). Rather, “last chance” performances delivered by endangered hopefuls unlock a fascinating peephole to Murphy’s freaky mind — the same one that conjured Nip/Tuck.

    Makes you want to break up with television forever.
      Not that differing philosophies on sex and relationships are bad (albeit unoriginal) avenues to explore. But when it comes to addressing timeless mysteries such as “What do women want?” — which is right up there with “Why do cats always land on their feet?” — bring something fresh to the table, for heaven’s sake.

  • James May’s Road Trip

    The guy from the British Top Gear goes wine-tasting.
      Even your Franzia-imbibing roommate will sympathize with May’s smart-alec approach as he and Clarke explore wineries of “old world” European estates in Season One to “new world” operations in America. In Season Two, they dig up interesting background on California wines you’ll recognize from the shelves at Huckleberries or Bottles on Argonne.

    Formerly in Camelot: Boring old people. Now on Camelot: Making sexy time!
      Still, any new twist is welcome when recreating a tale that has been wrung out this thoroughly. Talking owls, a feminist Guinevere, and Richard Gere in a chest-baring tunic? It’s already been done..

  • Our America with Lisa Ling

    The former View correspondent gets up-close and personal with faith healers and monster-truck drivers.
      “I’ve been to heaven,” a 20-something faith healer tells her. “Were you on drugs?” she asks. Ling gets emotionally invested, especially with her voiceovers — a questionable element that critics may argue compromises her objectivity.

    The new legal show from David E. Kelley would be nothing without Kathy Bates.
      Bates’ earnestness, commanding character-embodiment, eloquent monologues and artfully executed moments of down-to-earth compassion are the fledgling series’ saving graces. It’s the same enigmatic twinkle that illuminated spitfire roles like Titanic’s.

    Beautiful nails, without complication
      Doug Schoon has seen the good, the bad and the ugly of the beauty industry. He is the founder of Schoon Scientific, which provides technological and regulatory expertise to the beauty, cosmetic and personal care industry. But his fundamental creed for manicure bargain hunters is also common sense: You get what you pay for.

    Playing a philosophy professor and a hickish pot-grower, Edward Norton is our new favorite split-screen twin (sorry, Lindsay Lohan).
      when Kincaid learns of twin brother Brady’s freak death (“he got shot with a crossbow. they’re inexplicably popular where i come from.”), he begrudgingly returns to his Midwestern stomping grounds (enter literary shift from socratic discipline to whitman-ian abandonment) … only to discover it was Brady’s cunning ruse for getting him to visit.

    Vagelie Karatzas is back in the kitchen. Plus, scones by the lake.
      He’s back in the kitchen as owner and manager of Greek Street Pizza %uFFFD More, a family-run business with two locations (his dad runs the other in Coeur d’Alene). The venture is an offshoot from Café Italiano, a restaurant Karatzas’ parents operated in Colville for 23 years.

    Out with the new, in with the used.
      “With the economy, people are looking for alternative ways to furnish,” says Fielding. “And right now, there’s a big trend in crafting and antiques — kind of like there was in the ’70s.” The trend Fielding refers to is a growing grassroots industry, a budding network of businesswomen (and men) that has blossomed in recent years.

  • Call It Lunchfast
  • Call It Lunchfast

    Two new places with mouthwatering pedigrees are doing breakfast and lunch a little differently.
      Don’t get us wrong: it’s not like we don’t like lunchfast in this town (especially since its similar yet distinct cousin, brunch, is so hard to come by). It’s just that, around the core, most everything’s been dined to death. The idea of huevos machaca in the morning and the Hercules Mega Pig at noon, well, that was just too much to pass up.
