6 Reasons ‘Yellowstone’ Fans Should Check Out ‘Deadwood’ on Its 20th Anniversary

Fans of Yellowstone still have months to go before the Paramount Network hit returns with its last batch of episodes, but we have a TV anniversary to celebrate in the meantime. HBO’s 2004 series Deadwood, another small-screen Western, turns 20 on March 21. All 36 episodes of Deadwood are streaming on Max — as the 2019 follow-up, Deadwood: The Movie — and we reckon it’s high time for you to pay that town a visit, especially if you like Yellowstone.

‘The 100’ Turns 10: Ranking the 10 Most Shocking Death Scenes

The 100 executive producer Jason Rothenberg warned fans that no one was safe in the world of the CW show and that “anyone, even a beloved character, can die at any time.” But really, someone was dying all the time on the CW series, which followed some of the 100 juvenile delinquents who were exiled to a post-apocalyptic Earth. One death count logged 4,878 casualties across The 100’s seven seasons… not including the 11 billion who died in the nuclear doomsday that started it all.

All Hail ‘Kings’: 6 Reasons to Revisit the One-Season Wonder

Kings had an all-too-brief reign on NBC, canceled after just 13 episodes. At the time, the network executives who had championed the show were getting pushed out, the new guard was unwilling or unsure of how to promote the show properly, and network TV itself was struggling to stay relevant. Ultimately, Kings aired for just six episodes before getting dethroned from its Sunday night time slot and then exiled to summer for the rest of its run.

15 Worst Best Picture Winners

With days to go before the 96th Academy Awards, this year’s Best Picture race seems too close to call. Oppenheimer is the odds-on favorite, according to GoldDerby, but The Holdovers and Poor Things aren’t far behind. Whatever the result is on March 10, critics and moviegoers will certainly say another film deserved the Best Picture Oscar more. And in the spirit of naysaying, we’re voting for the following films as the worst winners of the Best Picture prize.

Albert Einstein’s Brain Traveled the Country for Decades After His Death

Theoretical physicist Albert Einstein died in 1955, but the story of his brain has continued for years now, all because of one man who took the gray matter into his own hands and kept it for decades, even crossing state lines with the brain. What happened to Einstein’s brain? Believe it or not, it was the pathologist who conducted Einstein’s autopsy who just took the brain without permission, as detailed in last year’s documentary film The Man Who Stole Einstein’s Brain.

10 TV Shows That Should Have Had Only One Season

Any television buff will tell you, sometimes less really is more. We all know TV shows that ran too long, whether they “jumped the shark” or just drifted out of the cultural conversation. We’d go so far as to say that the TV shows here, however, could have ended after Season 1. We’re not saying we didn’t enjoy any of these shows from Season 2 onward, but we’d argue they would have better off as one-season wonders.

‘General Hospital’ at 60: What Happened in the Very First Episode

Two long-running, hospital-set soaps — ABC’s General Hospital and NBC’s The Doctors — debuted on the same day on April 1, 1963. The Doctors ran for nearly 20 years, but General Hospital has lasted three times as long — and counting! ABC is honoring the show with a primetime special, General Hospital: 60 Years of Stars and Storytelling, but the General Hospital that started that day in 1963 is very different from the show fans see today.

Gay men sound off on the need to confront transphobia among other gay men

Hang out on Reddit long enough, and you’ll eventually see transphobic attitudes show up—explicitly and implicitly—in queer communities on the platform. And social media is, of course, a microcosm of a society which some think LGB equality is an acceptable substitute for LGBT equality. One Reddit user recently shed light on transphobia in the gay male population, saying that although he loves being gay and trans, his interactions with cis gay men “[have], by and large, been less than ideal.”

Robotic Acting? 10 Stars Who Went Android on Television

Alexander Skarsgård is taking a turn for the mechanical with his latest TV role, having signed on to executive produce and star in Murderbot as “a self-hacking security android who is horrified by human emotion yet drawn to its vulnerable ‘clients.'" And like some of the actors here, Skarsgård might find that it’s not always easy playing an android on screen. Here are other TV stars with synthetic entries on their filmographies…
