Former "Who's the Boss?" star Alyssa Milano is the latest celebrity to have a sex tape posted online. Sort of. Hers was actually created as a gag for the comedy website Funny or Die and while it's a little lascivious, it's more of a tool to learn about the situation in Syria (and a commentary on how little most people seem to know or care about the crisis). http://bit.ly/18A22JD
Interview magazine has a great chat with some of TV's top creators about the challenges of effectively ending a show. "Breaking Bad"'s Vince Gilligan, Alan Ball of "Six Feet Under" and "True Blood" fame, and "Lost" co-creators Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof shed light on the decision-making that went into crafting the conclusions of their hits. Reading Cuse and Lindelof's ruminations on the controversial ending of "Lost" will fascinate fans of the series.
"I think with 'Lost,' we were acutely aware that there was no possible way we were going to make everybody happy, so we decided the only viable solution was to make ourselves happy," says Cuse, who adds he felt it was just a small minority of complainers who trashed the ending.
"It has felt bigger than a subset to me," counters Lindelof. "It wasn't just trolls who were doing it — it was television critics who I appreciate and admire.... There is an implication that everyone knows what you mean by 'do a "Lost."'" http://bit.ly/18I8op0
Gilligan also shared with Entertainment Weekly some "Breaking Bad" storylines that were close to getting written into the show but got cut for one reason or another. Marie was envisioned accidentally shooting someone, while Walt could've opened a pharmacy to sell fake drugs or meth. Another nixed idea had Walt visiting a South American jail to negotiate a drug deal with an imprisoned kingpin. http://bit.ly/1acTcnc
