Did he stick the dismount?

By Mark Lopez [ Tue Mar 5 2013 1:06 PM ]

Call it a guardian angel. Call it divine intervention. Call it plain dumb luck. Whatever faith you subscribe to or mantras you chant to place more significance on circumstance, one thing is especially clear: Dylan Hayes is one lucky little kid.

Like a cat that refuses to fall face-first, Dylan tumbled out of a third story window—while his mother, Jessica Hayes, was shampooing their carpet—and landed on his feet. Upon hearing her mother scream, Hayes assessed that he had fallen out of the window and ran downstairs in a panic. Not knowing what to expect, she saw that Dylan was standing there and appeared to be unharmed.

As a precaution, he was held at the hospital in Aurora, Colo. for 20 hours and was asked to wear a neck brace, though he walked away from the incident seemingly without a scratch.

If there’s one thing that we can learn from this incident, other than placing extra care when taking care of a toddler, it’s that when all else fails, children can still make great gymnasts or future superheroes.

Snap Judgments

New shows around the dial

At this point it’s hard to tell which new fall shows will be good and which will be awful. But what’s to stop us from making snap judgments based entirely on cast, concept and the teaser trailers available on YouTube?

Halftime Report

The dead and dying shows of 2011

By Devin D. O’Leary

The 2011-2012 season has hit its midway point. Shows are taking a break for the holidays and will be back with new episodes in late January or early February. Some of them anyway. A few have already gone off to that great television channel in the sky. While the fall 2011 season wasn’t exceptionally bloody, there were a handful of high-profile network casualties.

Fall TV Trends

Who’s in and who’s out

By Devin D. O’Leary

Out: Charlie Sheen. In: Ashton Kutcher. This is the most painfully obvious transition of the upcoming fall 2011 season. In one of the most high-profile (and well-tweeted) Hollywood feuds of all time, “Two and a Half Men” producer Chuck Lorre booted troubled actor Charlie Sheen. And hired Ashton Kutcher to replace him. Sheen is busy shopping his TV adaptation of the Adam Sandler film Anger Management. So far, no network seems interested in even bankrolling it. Kutcher, meanwhile, steps into a sweet, $800,000-per-episode gig. Producers have estimated (perhaps a bit optimistically) that the Sheen-less season premiere of the CBS sitcom will draw 50 million viewers. Sheen, meanwhile, got a job hosting Insane Clown Posse’s annual Gathering of the Juggalos.

By Evan George and Alex Brown

We just purchased a half a pound—each—of fresh chanterelles (it is fall, people!). But in a bout of lunch-box paranoia, Evan feared that the mushrooms would shrivel in the fridge and miss their peak. So we minced the beauties and made a mushroom duxelles (say “duke-sell”)—a classic French dish of mushrooms roasted with shallots, fat and wine. Nearly a tapenade, the stuff is versatile enough to work on vegan bruschetta or dress up leftovers.
