Weekend Review: HBO's The Normal Heart

The heart breaks while tempers violently flare in HBO's The Normal Heart (Sunday, 9/8c), Ryan Murphy's emotionally and politically explosive film version of Larry Kramer's provocative stage drama about the early response, within and outside the gay community, to the '80s AIDS crisis.

"We're not yelling loud enough!" bellows Ned Weeks (an engagingly abrasive Mark Ruffalo), the story's pushy moral conscience, a belligerent scold who refuses to play nice when so many lives are at stake.

Top Videos: Michael Emerson Sings "Happy," How to Communicate Like Jack Bauer

This week, Person of Interest star Michael Emerson set out to prove that he isn't always dark and intense, while CollegeHumor compiled a 24 video proving that Jack Bauer ... well, is almost always dark and intense. Full House was reimagined as a horror movie, and Saturday Night Live filmed a sketch with Andrew Garfield paying tribute to '90s sitcoms (but was forced to cut it from the broadcast). New judges Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams made their debuts on The Voice (sort of) by performing Stefani's hit "Hollaback Girl." And Sally Field destroyed Julia Roberts in a "Curse-Off" on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
