Many shows have fallen victim to the three most cursed words in recent TV history: "the next Lost." Ever since the island drama debuted in 2005, networks have been scrambling to re-create the series' irresistible combination of poignant drama and the bizarre supernatural. Unfortunately, most shows that try to fill those shoes — FlashForward, The Event and Alcatraz, to name three — have floundered within just a season. Does NBC's latest foray into sci-fi mystery genre, Revolution, have what it takes to break the curse?
What, no dancing dwarf? Psych pays homage to the 20th anniversary of Twin Peaks with "Dual Spires," a supersize episode that finds kooky crimebusters Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dule Hill) investigating the murder of a high-school girl in a quaint mountain town. It's David Lynch all the way — from the corpse wrapped in plastic to the guest cast, which includes ...

Still feeling grateful folks. I cant help it, its this month. Ya got Thanksgiving coming up, the weathers finally changing (although this Philly humidity is total bullshizz) and the DVD coffers are filled to the rim with causes for celebration these days.And with this TV writers strike shaping up to suck long and big, having a few great DVDs to keep your flat-screen toasty is never a bad thing. Especially if the DVDs themselves are bad-ass weirdness like this weeks basket of goodies.First up, and huge props to the geniuses (geniui?) at Paramount Home Video, is Twin Peaks: The Definitive Gold Box Edition. Oh, holy Log Lady, is this set stellar! Not only package-wise, but also in what's going on inside the sleek box. 10 discs, including the pilot that was woefully absent from the original first-season set, and oodles of extras on the making of the show that confused so many of us between 1990 and 91. Trust me, as soon as you see poor plastic-wrapped...

Question: With all the best- and worst-of-2005 lists I've seen, I've been wondering about the worst movies of all time. But though I've seen dozens of lists, with the exception of Plan 9 from Outer Space and Glen or Glenda, the movies on the lists all seem to have been made between 1980 and the present. Are there any bad-movie lists that go back to the early days of film, or is it just that movies started getting really bad in the 1980s?
Answer: I'll answer the second part of your question first: It's not that movies have gotten worse but that smarty-pants treasuring of "worst movies of all time" lists is a relatively recent phenomenon, one that I blame on Harry and Michael Medved and their condescending Golden Turkey Awards. I'm not saying that there aren't terrible movies out there, only that squandering energy that could be better used in any of a hundred ways on hunting down and cata
Question: I enjoy watching those AFI (American Film Institute) specials, but what is AFI's function?
Answer: Founded in 1967, AFI is a film school: Directors David Lynch, Terrence Malick, Darren Aronofsky, Paul Schrader, Carl Franklin and Amy Heckerling all went there. Its initial funding came from the then-recently created (and now embattled) National Endowment for the Arts, the MPAA and the Ford Foundation, a heavy hitter in early corporate-sector support for the arts
