Originally broadcast on Sunday, October 25th, Bay Coven was part of the NBC Sunday Night at the Movies, and was summarily trounced by Game 7 of the World Series as the *checks notes* Minnesotans beat the other ones to win the cup. Or something. Anyhoo, for those who were into horror, especially so close to Halloween, Bay Coven (Aka Bay Cove) was a fun treat; nothing original at all, but merely the next in the hallowed tradition of what I like to call (as of right now) the Killer Hospitality sub-genre: Rosemary’s Baby, Crowhaven Farm, and The Dark Secret of Harvest Home all setting out the chips and dip for what Bay Coven has in store.

Hard to believe it's been 35 years since "Airplane!" took flight (on July 2, 1980) and taught us all to speak jive, order the chicken instead of the fish, and avoid calling each other "Shirley." Three and a half decades later, the airline disaster parody remains one of the funniest films ever made, one that generations of viewers have watched over and over -- though probably never as an in-flight movie.
Still, as many times as you've seen it, there's much you may not know about how it was made. In honor of "Airplane!" turning 35, here are a few facts every fan must know about the comedy classic.
1. Strip away all the jokes, and "Airplane!" is essentially a remake of a little-known 1957 air disaster movie called "Zero Hour!" The writing/directing team of Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker lifted the plot,
If so, there's a good chance you have Nick at Nite to thank. Classic television reruns were plentiful in the '80s and '90s, but Nick at Nite – which launched on July 1, 1985 – consolidated decades of American TV into one place.
Thirty years later, it's still going strong.
In honor of the programming block's anniversary this week, we're looking back at how the network came to be and how it's changed over the past three decades.
Hey, remember Arts TV?
Victoria Barkley (Barbara Stanwyck, "The Big Valley," ABC, 1965-69): It could be argued that the widowed Victoria played both mother and father to her grown offspring, and her grit made her the equal of any man in the frontier.
Olivia Walton (Michael Learned, "The Waltons," CBS, 1972-79): Full of compassion, the mother of the large Walton brood also had the backbone to bring her family through the Depression.
Marion Cunningham (Marion Ross, "Happy Days," ABC, 1974-84): "Mrs. C." was a throwback to the idealized television wives/moms of the 1950s -- and why not? That's the era in which the long-running sitcom was set.

You can probably imagine my absolute shock when a movie about life on the "Down-low" finally broke through all the noise the subject usually brings. Perhaps shock is too small a word. I sat in a packed auditorium, obliterated, as an honest depiction of two married men on the D.L., falling in love with each other while navigating a violently homophobic culture, unspooled before me.
Yes, the movie showed these men cheating on their wives, causing them a great deal of pain, but it clearly detailed that the reason they risked their families, their standing in the community, and even their very lives was because, despite the intolerance of their world, what they felt for each other was too strong and too deep for them to shrug off.
And the audience actually empathized with

Most Memorable TV MomsJune Cleaver in "Leave It to Beaver" (1957 - 1963)
Barbara Billingsley's role as a loving wife and mother in the feel-good sitcom wasn't full of risk or realism. June Cleaver, however, always looked polished and amazing, and certainly loved her husband and children. You may be surprised to learn that ...

We hope you all enjoyed a nice week and are ready to start 2011. We made our requisite resolutions. We really are going to go to the gym more often. We're definitely cutting down on snacks. And we decided to learn a new language.
We've tried French, Italian and Spanish in the past and none of them seem to stick. And despite the fact that we've been told that Chinese and Japanese aren't as difficult as they seem, we don't think we're ready to try to tackle those challenges yet.
Besides we'd like to learn a new tongue that has a pop culture twist. Luckily we found this awesome new webpage that translates common every day English into four of the most important languages in entertainment history.
