20 years ago, 'My So-Called Life' thrashed and pouted its way onto television screens -- an antidote for the deadly case of the warm and fuzzies we were collectively suffering from all those family sitcoms and all those pleasant lessons they taught us in 30-minute spurts each week. It was a show for everyone: for the angst-ridden and misunderstood teens, for the tweens emerging into what we now call "all of the feels," and for the parents trying to reconcile their struggles with the struggles of their own children. It was the first series to portray teenage life with such brilliant, shaded honesty, that showed us that our youth wasn't disaffected, but deeply, terribly affected. 20 years later, 'My So-Called Life' still resonates; whether you're 28 or 15, you can see yourself painfully reflected in Angela Chase's insecurities and heartaches.
'Homeland' will undergo something of a metamorphosis in its fourth season, shifting from the story of Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) and Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) to a more generalized tale of an intelligence officer in a foreign country.

And lo, 'Homeland' season 3 has come to pass, bringing its three-act magic trick to a close with Sunday's "The Star," and finally delivering a long-awaited character death that paves the way for a major reinvention in season 4. Executive producer Alex Gansa made the rounds to confirm Carrie Mathison's season 4 shakeup, including which characters we might see again, and why season 3 finally took its roping plunge.
This Sunday's season 3 finale of 'Homeland' will naturally drop a body or two before the hour's end, with most bets on one outspoken and outdated cast member getting the axe, but could 'Homeland' season 4 see a significantly reduced cast in 2014? Find out who's leaving the Showtime drama behind for greener 'Homeland''s!
'Little Women,' based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, was released in 1994, and told the story of the March sisters, who grow up under the guidance of their mother during and after the Civil War. While the fictional girls' lives were blossoming, so were the careers of the film's young stars, like Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, Winona Ryder and Christian Bale. Nineteen years later, we look back on the cast of this coming-of-age classic and see where they are now.
The internet and the world at large may have been somewhat preoccupied last night with a little ol' AMC series finale (10.3 million viewers, bitch!), but thankfully Showtime is a good sport with its 'Homeland' season 3 and 'Masters of Sex' premieres. While the latter had earlier made its way online, the entirety of 'Homeland' season 3 premiere "Tin Man Is Down" has found its way on demand for those in need of a post-'Breaking Bad' high.
