It was a good week for reading between the lines: Is that guy across the table scratching his nose, or doing something else? What does Ben's cast mean on Lost? And what to make of it when you wake up, feeling sticky, with a body you don't recognize? Please enjoy our Top Moments, figuring-it-out edition – and send suggestions for next week to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brad Pitt, Stump, Hayden Panetierre
Puppies, breasts, and Brad Pitt. If one of these things doesn't draw you into this week's Top Moments, we give up. As an added bonus, we promise not a single mention of politics or Valentine's Day. So get reading!
Joaquin Phoenix's Andy Kaufman-esque career suicide tour just keeps getting weirder.
The actor, who recently announced he was giving up his on-screen career to become a rapper, made a squirm-inducing appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman Wednesday to promote his new — and last, to hear Phoenix tell it — movie, Two Lovers.
Dressed in a suit, shades, and a beard Letterman likened to the Unabomber's, Phoenix chewed gum while fidgeting through Dave's questions, rarely giving more than one-sentence answers. Read on for more on Joaquin's appearance and watch the video!
How do you heal a fanboy's broken heart? Lesbians. Or at least that what's DC Comics is hoping.
After recently killing off Batman, DC has announced that Batwoman, a red-headed, stiletto-wearing "lesbian socialite by night and a crime-fighter by later in the night," will be headlining Detective Comics. Batwoman — and her alter ego Kathy Kane — will be the subject of at least 12 issues beginning in June, marking the first major storyline for a gay character in DC's history.
The character was first introduced
Esai Morales and Eric Stoltz, Caprica
Now this is peculiar. Caprica's two-hour pilot/TV movie will debut on DVD on April 21.
That's at least eight months before the Battlestar Galactica prequel begins its 22-episode run on the Sci Fi Channel. Just last month, in fact, BSG producers Ron Moore and David Eick confirmed to TVGuide.com's Nerd High Priestess Erin Fox that Caprica wouldn't premiere on the Sci Fi Channel until 2010. But why? Read on to find out...
Jason Mesnick. Katie Couric and Jensen Ackles
Ever wonder how to say sorry? Salvage a wet cell phone? Tell someone you're pregnant? The world of TV was full of good suggestions this week, and we've got them all in our Top Moments.
Holy F-bomb, Batman!
Dark Knight star Christian Bale is catching heat for a four-minute, expletive-riddled tirade against a crew member on the set of Terminator: Salvation.
The clip, which first surfaced on TMZ.com (Warning: link contains explicit language) features Bale yelling at director of photography Shane Hurlbut after he walked through a scene the actor was shooting. The incident reportedly occurred ...
Super Bowl XLIII
Super Bowl viewers in Tucson, Ariz., saw a different kind of action during Sunday night's game: KVOA TV's broadcast of the Super Bowl was interrupted for approximately 10 seconds by a porn clip in homes with Comcast cable.
"We are mortified by last evening's Super Bowl interruption and we apologize to our customers," Comcast said in a statement. "Our initial investigation suggests this was ...
Dominic Monaghan, Kara DioGuardi. Edward James Olmos
We have a confession: Sometimes the order of this list is totally random — especially on a week as packed with huge moments as this one. How can we choose between a historic presidential address, two different TV professionals cursing on air, and Battlestar Galactica's Admiral Adama doing something slick? Which would you choose? (Really? That's pretty nerdy, but don't feel bad. We liked the Battlestar moment too.) From Obama to Adama, enjoy our Top Moments.
Henry Ian Cusick
Am I the only one who was disappointed to find out that there would be no Lost-Archie Comics crossover on Wednesday's episode? It's a shame: I had a ton of "jalopy" and "Midge" puns at the ready. So who or what is "Jughead" then? By the end of the hour, we've found out, but it's perhaps the least fulfilling of the many revelations of this fast-paced episode, which contained far fewer "flashes" than last week's episode. Desmond begins his quest to find Daniel Faraday's mother — whatever her name is — and in the process learns more about her time-hopping physicist son, and the company he keeps. Read on to get the whole confusing story...
