  • ICM Partners’ Chris Silbermann: The good kind of double agent

    By Danielle Berrin

    March 11, 2014 | 6:08 pm

    When it comes to entertainment industry archetypes, none is more disdained or suspect than the talent agent.

    Aaron Sorkin once described his agent, Ari Emanuel, to me as “a shark” – and meant it as a compliment.

    In a 2005 New Yorker profile of William Morris Agency’s...

  • Bob Odenkirk on ‘Nebraska’ and ‘Breaking Bad’

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    November 15, 2013 | 5:32 am

    Actor Bob Odenkirk seems to be everywhere these days, on screens large and small.   Having burst into the comedy zeitgeist with series like “The Larry Sanders Show,” and “Saturday Night Live,” he’s best known for playing Saul Goodman, meth-cooker Walter White’s sleazy but...

  • Israel Philharmonic Orchestra: A gift for all ‘Seasons’

    By Rick Schultz

    October 23, 2013 | 10:37 am

    When the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) performs Vivaldi’s evergreen “The Four Seasons” at a benefit at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Oct. 30, the orchestra won’t be made up of its 100-plus players. Instead, the event, which is a fundraiser for the orchestra and its only Los...

  • Breaking Down Kenny Powers and Walter White

    By Melissa Weller

    October 8, 2013 | 6:07 pm

    Last week, a certain finale brought an epically proportioned brouhaha to flip the Internet upside down.  Those who were satisfied with the technical delivery, who were disappointed on a storytelling level, and who dared to dream all poured out of the Web woodworks. Yet one theory...

  • ‘Breaking Bad’ finale: Baby blue drugs, baby blue hugs

    By Melissa Weller

    October 1, 2013 | 4:15 pm

    As promised, digesting the conclusion of this epic tale took a while.

    Like many other millions, I became addicted to the death grips on my stomach rarely, if ever, felt from a television series. As the passing weeks drew the finale closer and closer, a new level of scorching...

  • The Shutdown

    By Rob Eshman

    October 1, 2013 | 12:07 pm

    What the $%#@ is happening?

    I’m writing this 17 minutes after the Federal government shut down — for the first time in 17 years.  I remember clearly the last time this happened.  It was stupid and superfluous and self-destructive then.  It’s stupid, superfluous and...

  • Goodbye Breaking Bad

    By Ilana Angel

    September 29, 2013 | 3:28 pm

    I have never seen an entire episode of Breaking Bad. This confession mortifies my son.  He has been telling me for a year to watch it and I just have not.  No real reason other than the fact that I don’t really have time. We tried to watch together once and it was so violent that I...

  • Emmys tell bleak tale of broadcast TV

    By Melissa Weller

    September 24, 2013 | 5:52 pm

    So the Emmys were on Sunday, and with it no shortage of Neiling, Breaking and flopped attempts at Modernizing. Not least of which was characterized by the slap-happy host jabbing “our younger audience” by clarifying that television is “the thing you watch on your phones.” Cute?...

  • ‘Breaking Bad’ finale is just the beginning: surviving Sept. 29

    By Melissa Weller

    September 17, 2013 | 12:16 pm

    On Sept 29, 2013, TV will take a giant shit on everyone.

    Sept. 29 will host series and season premieres, one historic series finale and a rousing day of Week 4 Sunday football. This could all get very messy if not approached with skill, grace, and above all, a plan. So I’ve...

  • Unnecessary Gunn violence: A take on Skyler White

    By Melissa Weller

    August 28, 2013 | 4:15 pm

    Yesterday I asked a coworker, with whom I’ve participated in many a yay Skyler/nay Skyler conversation, to forget details for a minute and sum up in one general statement the first time he remembered filing Skyler White under the bitch column, and why. Coworker settled on Skyler’s...

  • ‘Breaking’ Kosher: Is Los Pollos Hermanos certified?

    August 20, 2013 | 9:57 am

    Jewish fans of “Breaking Bad,” fear not: There’s finally a Jewish angle to the show.

    The fry batter used at the fictional fried-chicken chain Los Pollos Hermanos — run by drug kingpin Gustavo Fring — apparently is certified kosher by the Orthodox Union.

    Except, as...
