Californication's Hank Moody said it best on the Showtime comedy's series finale: "I'm a sucker for happy endings."
After seven seasons of breakups, breakdowns, and tons of drug- and alcohol-fueled bad behavior, the love story of Hank (David Duchovny) and Karen (Natascha McElhone) finally came to a close...

The chickens have come home to roost. Lifetime scored huge ratings last January with its gothic freakfest Flowers in the Attic, based on the 1979 V.C. Andrews best seller. Now comes Petals on the Wind. Inspired by Andrews's follow-up novel, the movie leaps ahead 10 years to find brother-and-sister lovers Chris and Cathy Dollanganger (this time played by Wyatt Nash and Rose McIver) trying hard — and failing — to bury their lust for each other.
Heather Graham is the latest actress to speak out about the problems of misogyny in Hollywood. During a discussion about being typecast in "sexy" roles, the Boogie Nights rollergirl and Californication "MILF" told Esquire that the movie business is "totally sexist."
"If you look at all the movies being made these days, eighty percent of them are about men," Graham said.

Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic adaptation debuted to...
Three episodes are never enough to satisfy our appetite for the dazzling BBC/Masterpiece Mystery! version of Sherlock, which thanks to its stars' busy movie careers, made us wait two long years for the latest trilogy of 90-minute delights. Was it worth the wait? The answer is (to borrow the title of TV's other enjoyable contemporary Holmes series) elementary: Did you ever doubt it?
"You love it, being Sherlock Holmes," reaffirms the long-suffering Dr. John Watson (the delightful Martin Freeman) to his exasperating mate (an electrifying Benedict Cumberbatch), who returns to the spotlight in Sunday's playfully...
Flowers in the Attic
Fans of V.C. Andrews' 1979 novel Flowers in the Attic likely began salivating when news broke last year that Lifetime was planning a movie adaptation of the teen incest story. Could the result be anything less than a camp-fest of epic proportions?
The answer is no. Although the addition of Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka and Ellen Burstyn may have raised expectations that this particular offering would rise above the typical standards set forth by Lifetime movies, sadly, it doesn't.
Banned in some schools, required reading in others, V.C. Andrews's youth-in-crisis novel Flowers in the Attic is now a Lifetime movie — and it's still as shocking and creepy as when it first entered the zeitgeist in 1979. Heather Graham stars as Corrine Dollanganger, a picture-perfect housewife and mother of four who is suddenly widowed and must take her brood to live with her parents in the elegant mansion where she grew up. But there's a catch: Corrine's dying father can't know she has kids — she scandalized the family by marrying her uncle — so her offspring must stay hidden in the attic until Grandpa kicks the bucket.
