I had a couple of decent ideas for this post but neither one really rang true as a slam-dunk Double-Take. My first attempt was Lukas Haas and Alex Honnold. They both have similar-shaped noses, big ears that stick out, and the same hair color and texture…

Last week, I happened to catch the last five minutes of the cringeworthy sitcom “Ben and Kate” on FOX. (That show could give “Whitney” a run for its excruciatingly annoying money.) The episode featured 26-year-old actress Brittany Snow who could be mistaken for a young Edie Falco…

I can’t believe I didn’t notice this Double-Take pair sooner! A couple of weeks ago, I was watching a “60 Minutes” segment about how the venerable New Orleans newspaper The Times-Picayune had to scale back its operations. During that piece, Morley Safer interviewed the city’s mayor Mitch Landrieu…

The shows are an irresistible gateway drug for nesting junkies—a can’t-miss combo of aspirational, inspirational, practical, voyeuristic and entertaining […]

Perhaps all those Emmys and Golden Globes made you too complacent because your fourth season on ABC was sadly hit-or-miss. Once upon a […]
