Great TV Box Sets for The Holidays
The holidays are around the corner and tomorrow will be Black Friday. As you’re shopping around there will be tons of great TV box sets to choose from this year. Check out this guide for some great ideas, including the “Dexter” and “Breaking Bad” box sets.
“Dexter” is probably the biggest hit in Showtime’s history but it did decline over the years. Still it’s a show worth getting into from the beginning with Michael C. Hall carrying the show and great contributions from guest stars like John Lithgow, Keith Carradine, Jimmy Smits, Julia Stiles and Jonny Lee Miller.
As for “Breaking Bad,” some are calling it the best TV drama of all time. Vince Gilligan’s creation was carried by Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn and a fantastic cast. This one is a must and will be one of the hot gifts of the year.

Megyn Price dishes on Matthew Perry
In her interview with Bullz-Eye.com, Megyn Price tells a funny story about Matthew Perry:
BE: Okay, lastly, I just wanted to let you know that you were directly responsible for one of my wife’s favorite moments from the Television Critics Association press tour. It was at a Sony party a couple of years ago, and you were talking to my wife when Matthew Perry came up. You and he talked for a few minutes, but then you got called away to do an interview, at which point Matthew Perry turns to my wife and says, “So I suppose you want to talk to me now.” And because she’s not a journalist, she just looks at him and says, “Oh, GOD, no.” His jaw dropped. Then he burst out laughing.
MP: Oh. My. God. That is hilarious! That is so funny. He always loves to bring up how I blew him off when he was doing “Friends.” I was at Jennifer Aniston’s birthday party, and I was totally ignoring him, and he walked up to me and he goes, “I don’t think you understand, little girl: you better date me now, ‘cause my star is on the rise!” And I think in his head he was totally kidding…or he wasn’t, and now he claims that he was kidding. Because at the time it did not sound like he was kidding. I was, like, “How big is your ego, dude? Move on!” [Laughs.] So, yeah, now he likes to bring up how I misunderstood that he was joking. Uh-huh. Sure he was. In the heat of “Friends,” I’m real sure…
