Idris Elba Talks Luther Season 2

Idris Elba, Luther

Talking to Idris Elba can be disorienting. No matter how often he references his acclaimed roles as Baltimore drug lord Stringer Bell on The Wire ("That part spoiled me and catapulted me onto the radar," he says) or Dunder Mifflin big boss Charles Miner on The Office ("I can't believe I got paid to have so much fun"), it doesn't jibe with the East London inflection coming out of his mouth. Can this be the same actor?

The Joy of Sets: Get Your Gay Pride On!

Brad Rowe courtesy Regent Releasing, Joanna Lumley courtesy BBC, Reichen

Between the apparent pick-up appeal of airport bathrooms, Christian Siriano and his hot tranny messes, California’s same-sex marriage ruling and the new “Sex and the City” movie, it’s been a very interesting year for the GLBT scene. And I mean interesting in a cool way. Like somehow the whole “all men created equal” stuff may start meaning something. So I figured, with gay being the new bitch, which was the new black last Spring (thank you, Tina Fey), and June being Gay Pride Month, I thought it was only appropriate to devote a little time to shows on DVD that are as fabulous as the fans who make them must-see...Dante’s Cove — Season Three just hit stores and lemme tell you, when I first heard that Amazing Race fame-seeker Reichen Lemkuhl was joining the cast, it was not a good day. The show is campy fun with its mix of island passion and occulty plotlines (and lord alive is there flesh for all walks of life to enjoy), but did it need a realit... read more

The Joy of Sets: BBC-ya!

So, obviously, I watched a ton of TV as a kid here in Philadelphia. But the one thing that had me running for the clicker faster than viewers did from last week's Oscars were those hoity-toity funny-talkin' people on Channel 12 (aka public television). High-button collars. Translucent skin. Questionable dentistry. I just didn't get how anyone would watch a show that didn't have cool, tan cops like the CHiPs guys or glamorous, toothy detectives like Charlie's Angels. I mean really, Doctor Who back then was a fright, with his big scarf and unsettling robotic dog. No thanks! I'd take the original Battlestar's dagget over that mess any day.Now that I'm slightly more evolved in my viewing habits, the idea of international programming is far less off-putting to my ugly American sense and sensibilities. Hell, I'll go so far as to say that the BBC in particular has been schooling some of the major U.S. networks on how to really do culty cool and sexy TV lately. And bless the stars, we've g... read more

Premise: A caustic and clever Britcom about two neurotic gal pals who are dedicated followers of fashion. Edina's in PR, while Patsy's a magazine editor, though work isn't something they do very often. Drinking is, however, as is man-chasing (sometimes literally). Costar Jennifer Saunders created the series, which bowed on the BBC in November 1992.
