TV Scene

It seems like 2015 may go down in history as the year Hollywood officially ran out of ideas. Beloved TV shows are being revived left and right, feeding on our nostalgia for classics from decades past.

A Cookbook With Attitude, Plenty of It

Food

Gabrielle Hamilton sets our reservations adrift. She inspires courage. Reading her cookbook, you may well consider frying up sardine spines, heads and tails attached, for a special treat. Or making a butter and ham sandwich drizzled with olive oil. Or figure how a suckling pig would fit into your oven. Or maybe just dress slices of ripe, raw tomato with melted butter.

So, What Colors Do You See?

Observations: Darryl Gangloff

By now you’ve probably seen the dress that broke the Internet last week. If you somehow managed to avoid this viral sensation, what colors do you see in the dress in the accompanying photo — white and gold, or blue and black?

Spies, Killers, Miscreants And Politicians, Too

The TV Scene

The holidays are long gone and the weather is cold and gloomy, which means it’s time for me to settle into the couch and watch my favorite television shows until spring.
Plenty of great shows are debuting or returning this season, but I’ve narrowed the list down to five series I think you should watch.

Something Special to Start

Holiday Fare: A Beautiful Soup

What an elegant way to start a festive holiday dinner: a smooth, fragrant, beautiful and delicate soup.
It’s simple, too.
The trick, well, it’s not really a trick, to this cauliflower soup is the stock. Yes. You ought to make it yourself, but that’s simple too.

Getting Good, Finally, At Comic Con

Excursion: NYCC

Since its debut in 2006, New York Comic Con (NYCC) has become a pop culture behemoth, filling the Jacob K. Javits Center in Manhattan with fans (many dressed in colorful costumes) searching for the latest collectibles and news surrounding their favorite comics, games, movies and television shows.

You’ve Always Got the Albums

TV Scene

I am fan of John Mulaney’s standup comedy. His albums “The Top Part” and “New In Town” have gotten me through more than one lengthy road trip. It’s just too bad many of the same jokes from those albums (which were released in 2009 and 2012) were reused in “Mulaney,” his bland new sitcom.

Where History, Aviation And Technology Merge And Amaze

Thomas Jensen visits a nearby marvel, the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome

As a boy, I constructed model airplanes. I put together wood-framed scale models of old planes, models that actually flew, which was amazing to me. And I remember our family outings to the the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, a unique “living museum” with one of the largest collections of early planes, planes that actually fly, which was even more amazing.

Just Call It Simpson Love

TV

My love of “The Simpsons” goes all the way back to the Dark Ages of the early 1990s, when I needed to use a VHS tape (ancient technology that our younger readers may have never seen) to record my favorite episodes.

The Emmys Are Back: Time for Darryl’s Picks

TV Scene

The 66th Primetime Emmy nominations were announced last week, and this year’s list signals a game-changer in the way we watch television.
Netflix proved once again that online shows are a force to be reckoned with by earning 31 nominations, including 13 for “House of Cards” and 12 for “Orange is the New Black.” These two series are in the running for outstanding drama series and outstanding comedy series, respectively.
