Published

on

With October 31stcreeping up slowly, its time to indulge in some of the spooky, yet festive Halloween episodes. With a score of Halloween installments dating back to when the television was first invented, it can be quite tricky to figure out which episodes are worth re-watching. It would be a crime for us to categorize these episodes at “Top 10 Best Halloween Episodes” because that’s simply does not do these episodes justice. We will just opt for making this your guide to some of the most entertaining and memorable episodes to date.
v Friends- The One With The Halloween Party (2001):
Chandler and Monica throw a Halloween party, complete with Monica’s uptight temperament. Ultimately, Joey dressing up as Chandler and Chandler donning a bright pink bunny costume are the highlights of this episode. You just have to love your friends.
v Boy Meets World-And Than There Was Shawn (1998)
Although a pigment of Shawn’s imagination and not an actual Halloween episode, the flickering lights, scary music, on cue dramatics from Eric and a stabbed Mr. Feeny provide a wonderfully wicked atmosphere. For the actual Halloween episode check out Witches of Pennbroke.
v That 70’s Show- To Old To Trick or Treat, To Young To Die (2000)
This episode is what happens when a group of teens is too old for Halloween. Full of Alfred Hitchcock references and Fez in girl’s underwear, there’s no question why this makes the top of our list. Also check out 1999’s episode, Halloween.
v Family Matters- Stevil (and Stevil II) (1996)
Urkel gets a brilliant plan to get an identical ventriloquist dummy for his act, which he’s horrible at. When lightening strikes the dummy, Stevil, he comes alive and tries to kill each person in the Winslow family that’s standing in the way of his dreams. Because you know there is nothing scarier than a dummy.
v Family Guy- Halloween on Spooner Street (2010)
“Were under attack by monsters, dear god,” screams Stewie and the episode literally speaks for itself. As Stewie faces his first Halloween where he thinks he’s going to get attacked by zombies, vampires and a Mexican princess, Meg attends her first high school Halloween party and Peter plays pranks on his friend Quagmeir.  Truthfully, you can never go wrong with a Family Guy episode.
v Pretty Little Liars- The First Secret (2011)
A flashback episode to a time when Ali was still alive and the girls were still her minions, it starts with Ali telling a creepy story about a twin that killed her sister. As the new girl in town fights Ali for her Queen B dominance, the girls go to a Halloween party where they get pranked by Ali, whose getting pranked by A. The episode provides missing pieces into the ongoing Alison Diaurentes murder mystery.
v How I Met Your Mother- Slutty Pumpkin (2005)
Ted continues his yearly tradition and goes to the Halloween party on the rooftop where he waits for “the slutty pumpkin” that he fell in love with a couple of years ago. Not even Barney’s proposition to attend the Victoria Secret yacht party can change his mind. Meanwhile, Marshall and Lily win the best couple costume contest with their Jack Sparrow and parrot costumes.
v Will and Grace- Boo! Humbug! (1998)
Will and Grace’s Halloween movie marathon gets ruined when get stuck babysitting their friends kids. Jack and Karen have no shame as they attend a Halloween parade in the city and Karen becomes an honorary drag queen.
v The Simpsons- Simpson TreeHouse of Horror VI (1995)
As the longest running Halloween special, each year’s episode is different and memorable in its own way. The VI installment was split into three parts: Attack of the 50 Foot Eyesores, Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace and Homer. In the first part, advertisements and billboards come to life and attack the residents of Springfield. Part two is a tribute to Nightmare on Elm Street in which a Freddy Kreuger look alike attacks children in their sleep. The final segment pays homage to the Twilight Zone, in which Homer is lost in a three dimensional world. Tune in on October 7 for The Simpsons TreeHouse of Horror XXIII.
v Buffy The Vampire Slayer- Halloween (1997)
Dressing to impress can be quite tough. Buffy decides to impress Angel by wearing a dress from the 18 century, a time that she thinks was one of his favorite. Unfortunately, one bad spell later and everyone assumes their costumes persona; Buffy becomes a frail, weak and confused noble woman, Willow turns into a ghost and Xander into a soldier. Isn’t the point of Halloween to become someone that your aren’t?

The 2019 AMAS Were All About Statements and Nostalgia

Published

on

“Less is more” was the takeaway of the 2019 American Music Awards.

The night celebrated the years most popular songs and artists, but it was the oldies that made the show resonate with audiences both inside the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles and watching worldwide.

There was plenty of nostalgia going around starting with Kesha’s first performance in 6 years that included her latest single “Raising Hell” but also her 2011 hit “Tik Tok.”

She was finally granted permission to sing her old songs following a public battle with Sony and producer Dr. Luke.

The crowd also had warm reactions to these oldies but goodies: “Green Day’s 1994 “Basket Case,” Toni Braxton’s 1996 “Unbreak My Heart,” and Shania Twain’s 1997 classic “I Feel Like a Woman.”

Plenty of statements were also made at the AMAs as artists proved that they were no longer afraid to stand up to the status quo.

The biggest statements of the night came from the three pop powerhouses, Taylor Swift, Halsey, and Kesha.

All three ladies aimed their jabs at the music industry.

Halsey’s powerful speech shaded the GRAMMY Awards following her absence from the nominees that were announced early last week.

“I am so thankful to the AMA’s because they are the world’s largest fan-voted awards show,” she said emphasizing the fan aspect.

Dynasty’s Adam Huber on Liam’s Amnesia, #Falliam Future & That Kid Storyline

Adam Huber as Liam Ridley Interview

Adam Huber plays the uber dreamy Liam Ridley, the latest addition to the Dynasty cast.

Huber scored the title of series regular ahead of Dynasty Season 3.

But even without the coveted upgrade, the heartthrob has been a fan favorite since his debut on Dynasty Season 1 Episode 15, you know, the episode where he married Fallon, a complete stranger, on a whim.

Since then, Fallon and Liam have had a tumultuous yet epic relationship.

Nothing about their relationship has been conventional.

After they overcame a love triangle with Culhane, a messy situation with Liam’s uncle, a divorce, and Fallon’s attempts at winning him back from Ashley, it seemed liked things were going to work out.

Dynasty Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Guilt Trip To Alaska

Fallon proposed to him on the Carrington lake, and despite losing the ring in the water, Liam still said ‘yes.”

But their happiness was short-lived when her tyrannical brother, Adam, clobbered Liam upside the head and locked him in the pool closet.

After regaining consciousness, Liam crawled over to the pool, fell in, and woke up with amnesia, which is where we left off when I spoke with Huber.

Huber dished about Liam’s amnesia, what’s next for their relationship, his possible revenge on Adam, and the storyline he’s dying like to explore.

Dynasty is back and with it returns all of that Carrington craziness!

Sure.

Amidst all of that, you’ve been up to series regular. Congrats. Were you expecting it? 

No, I honestly wasn’t.

There have been other people. Wakeema, whose on the show and plays Monica Colby. You know, me and her were kind of doing the same thing we were just recurring, and you kind of go until you book another show or they give you a contract.

The Epic Kiss - Dynasty

And I was testing actually on another show, NYPD Blue is doing a reboot. I got very close to that. And right around the same time, they asked me to be a series regular.

So, you know, it worked out well. I wasn’t getting on PD Blue, so they had me a series regular. No, I was expecting it. I was just kind of chilling. I was just happy to be there.

It’s a great role to have. 

Right?

Has the way you approach and prepare for the character changed now that he does have a deeper storyline and is so loved by audiences?

I have been putting, I think, more work into it. I mean, I’ve always put work into it, and definitely just trying to stay fresh and just trying to understand him.

We’re very similar, but we’re also different. You want to keep his story fresh. I have a journal that I do character journaling in.

I take what I know, and then just create a story around him.

Like, what was the relationship like with my dad? What is the relationship like with my uncle who is on the show played by C. Thomas Howell? And I do that with all the other people in his life. Does that make sense?
