PopWatch PSA: You really need to watch Judith Light snort cocaine on 'Dallas' -- VIDEO

TNT’s Dallas is gunning for more watercooler moments in its third season, and scene-stealer Judith Light, who recurs as sharp-tongued matriarch Judith Ryland, certainly provided one in Monday’s episode (read our full recap). You’re going to want to watch it below.

The backstory for those who haven’t been tuning in: Judith Ryland made her triumphant return in the hour after her son, Harris (Mitch Pileggi) — the bastard ex-husband of Bobby Ewing’s wife Ann, with whom Harris shares a conniving daughter — pushed her down the stairs and locked her away in a “rehab” facility in season 2. She insisted upon taking back control of the family transport company, which she’d just learned was muling cocaine for a Mexican cartel. She also wanted to renegotiate the terms of that arrangement: “I made my bones dealing with psychopaths and criminals while you were still playing with your Easy Bake Oven,” she hissed to Harris. Together they went to Nuevo Laredo, where mama not only liked the idea of the cartel honcho frisking her for a wire but also the concept of product-testing.  READ FULL STORY

'I Want to Marry Ryan Banks': Writer of Bradley Cooper TV movie looks back

i-want-to-marry-ryan-banks

In 2004, ABC Family premiered the TV movie I Want to Marry Ryan Banks. It stars a post-Alias Bradley Cooper as a talent manager who convinces his friend/falling star client Ryan Banks (Jason Priestley) to do a Bachelor-type reality show to rehab his image. The twist: The sane, likable contestant Ryan is supposed to choose, Charlie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Emma Caulfield), falls for Cooper’s character instead.

If you’ve seen the movie — penned by Chad Hodge, the future creator of NBC’s The Playboy Club who is currently developing the Twin Peaks-esque limited series Wayward Pines with M. Night Shyamalan for Fox — odds are you’ll be thrilled to hear it’s debuting on Hallmark this Saturday night at 9 p.m. ET. And after reminiscing with Hodge, we can confirm that you are not alone.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Are you aware of how much people love this movie, or did our interview request come as a complete shock?
CHAD HODGE: Your email was forwarded to me, and I laughed because I have had that conversation with so many people — people I know and people I don’t know. I’ll be out at a bar with friends, and they’re like, “That’s the guy who wrote I Want to Marry Ryan Banks.” And it’s like, “You wrote that movie? I’ve watched that movie 19 times.” I love that of all the things in my career, this is the thing that everyone’s obsessed with.

I imagine it’s women like me, in their mid-30s.
Totally. And women in their mid-20s: Girls who were in high school and sick with a cold for three days probably saw it, and they’ve just been watching it ever since. I don’t know. It’s so funny. Girls of every age. Or gay guys, of course. READ FULL STORY
