Apple's 'Misunderstood' commercial: Have yourself a merry little cry -- VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-12-16 at 10.18.29 PM

Uh oh. You better sack up and secretly edit poignant home movies on your iPhones, pouty teens!

Apple’s new 90-second Christmas commercial just had me sobbing into my own iPhone as I went about my usual antisocial business of splaying out on the couch, ignoring this great big wondrous world around me, and playing with filters on Instagram. Here’s how good Apple commercials are: I didn’t even need to see this one to know I was already obsessed with it — much like your sulky teen won’t ever need to make real eye contact with his relatives to know and eventually show that he loves them (if you’re lucky) (and if you’ve purchased him an iPhone 5S).

Obviously, I did look up at one point… then replayed this commercial again and again. You wanna cry? READ FULL STORY

Did 'Frozen' almost get you to tear up? Polls!

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t seen Frozen and intend to, stop reading now. If you have seen the animated Disney film, which helped The Hunger Games: Catching Fire heat up the box office over the long Thanksgiving weekend, continue on.  READ FULL STORY

From the makers of 'Friday': Finally, an alphabet song for the YOLO generation! -- VIDEO

abcdefg-video.jpg

Are you an entitled millennial who never learned to read good? (Are you making your overprotective helicopter dad read this post to you right now?) If so, Internet “hitmaker” Patrice Wilson has just the “song” for you.

In “Friday,” he taught you the days of the week. In “It’s Thanksgiving,” he taught you that there is a holiday called Thanksgiving. And now, with this latest purposefully terrible wannabe viral music video, he’ll teach you something even more basic: The letters of the alphabet. Or at least everything before “Q.”

The new song’s title, no joke, is just “ABCDEFG.” (Somehow, I feel like we should give props to Patrice for managing to get the order right.) It’s sung by Alison Gold of questionable “Chinese Food” fame, and its faux-inspirational nonsense lyrics make “Friday” sound like Faulkner. Seriously, don’t play this song for anyone hoping to learn English; it’ll only confuse them.

Also, the video features Wilson peering into 11-year-old Alison’s bedroom window, and the tween confusedly flipping through an ancient paperback dictionary before getting into a strange van that has just pulled up outside her front door, which takes her to a club where she drinks a glass of punch that Patrice Wilson has drugged. With “Puppet Potion.” Also, at one point, she sings solfège syllables without tying them to any recognizable diatonic scale, which is super confusing.

I guess you can watch it if you really want:

Reasons Dolly Parton agreed to rap in an Afro wig on Queen Latifah's talk show -- VIDEO

1. By the time she realized Queen Latifah didn’t mean “gift-wrapping,” it was already too late.

2. She’s seen The Wedding Singer one too many times.

3. If she hadn’t, the Queen would have invited that tramp Jolene to guest star instead.

4. Miley told her it would be a great idea.

5. She lost a bet, maybe?

'Parenthood' spot inspection: Heed the warning signs, Bravermans!

I only cried once. I ONLY CRIED ONCE! It’s a Braverman miracle. But don’t be alarmed: Though the two often seem to correlate, you can’t judge an episode of Parenthood by how many times it makes you sob. I recently saw a film that was so melodramatic I wept for 75% of its duration, even though it hardly developed a character beyond “she’s the nicest one, and she’s definitely going to die in an hour.” It went for the cry every time and it was not enjoyable.

Parenthood, by contrast, doesn’t go for the cry. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that Parenthood is only about the cry.

Thursday’s episode was a great contribution to a confident season. Perhaps its swing to the less-than-three side of my crying average had to do with its focus on non-original Bravermans — people we don’t know enough about to get emotional just thinking about all they’ve been through in the last four years.

Shonda Rhimes loves herself a 'human bomb' scene

Thursday’s Scandal, in which a woman wearing a bomb vest takes nine people hostage, instantly reminded us of Shonda Rhimes’ mega-memorable bomb scare from Grey’s Anatomy — a two-episode weep fest in the middle of 2006′s season 2. Thanks to the magic of Netflix and my raging insomnia, I stayed up to re-watch “It’s the End of the World” and “As We Know It” — effectively shooting a bazooka into my heart. It was an accident! I feel fine.

I highly recommend revisiting these eps at a more reasonable hour, if only to remind yourself, while sobbing, that ugh, Grey’s Anatomy used to be SO. GOOD. (Video below.) READ FULL STORY

'Sons of Anarchy' death watch: Who will be the next to die?

Spoiler alert: As we said in our recap, the Oct. 15 episode of Sons of Anarchy was the most uplifting 90 minutes of season 6 to date. Other SOA charters supported Jax’s decision to move the club out of guns. Bobby, it turns out, has actually been recruiting for SAMCRO this whole time. (You teared up. Admit it.) And Jax actually smiled. A lot.

Of course, we guessed — even before the promo for the Oct. 22 episode showed bullets and fists flying — that the reprieve wouldn’t last. Will SAMCRO rise from the ashes only to fall again? Can the club stay alive, whole, and out of jail?

We know from this week’s EW cover story that the body count will rise before season’s end. So, as we wait to see who’s next, what’s your guess? Poll below. Also, we’re revisiting the trail of casualties, season by season, to track how SAMCRO came to this current crossroads. Check out our NSFW look back at season 1, and see how the show is coming full circle. (Cue “John the Revelator.”)

'Dancing With the Stars': Elizabeth Berkley finally channels Jessie Spano in an 'I'm So Excited' jive

Have my 17 (SEVENTEEN!) seasons of watching Dancing With the Stars just been validated? Don’t you dare answer that realistically. On tonight’s “Most Memorable Year of My Life” show (read our full recap), Elizabeth Berkley Lauren paid homage to the finest and fiercest caffeine pill dance party in television history: Jessie Spano’s “I’m so excited! I’m so… scared!” breakdown in a 1990 episode of Saved by the Bell.

Young Jessie and A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez, visiting from the Extra! set nearby) could never have predicted…that Zack Morris would be tweeting @ them, 23 years later, as they re-proclaimed their love in a televised ballroom! (Last part did not happen.)

Revel in the nostalgia/weep for humanity below. Don’t be scared! You need it to study. Here’s the video: READ FULL STORY

Kanye West feuds with Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 5.56.58 PM

International buffoon and INFREQUENT ALL-CAPS TWITTER USER KANYE WEST is freaking out against Jimmy Kimmel right now on Twitter. Mr. Kardashian is upset about a segment from Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (embedded below) that used child actors to spoof Kanye’s recent crazytown BBC interview.

It’s somewhat painful to read, but I’ve found my new favorite hashtag: #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK

Big-time NSFW content — updated with Kimmel’s on-air reaction — ahead. READ FULL STORY

'Breaking Bad' tribute: Hank's journey from plot device to hero

[Spoilers for last night's episode of Breaking Bad follow.]

If Breaking Bad‘s first season had ended with the death of Walt’s boorish brother-in-law, it’s safe to say nobody would have been sad to see him go. (Granted, that’s partially because Breaking Bad‘s initial audience was tiny.) At that point, Hank wasn’t a person so much as an obstacle to be overcome. When the DEA agent did get screen time, he was obnoxious enough to sap away any of Dean Norris’s innate likeability.
