Fangirl’s Guide to Katey Sagal
When it comes to the mother of all actors, it’s hard to ignore Katey Sagal.

Contest: Win Inside Daisy Clover on Blu-ray!
Natalie Wood plays the title role in this tale of a 1930s child star who goes from discovered to discarded in a stunningly short amount of time. The producer/director team of Alan J. Pakula and Robert Mulligan blend hard-edged cynicism and tear-jerking sentiment in this coming of age tale set during Hollywood's Golden Age. 15-year-old gamine Daisy Clover doesn't have much - an impoverished life on the pier with her off-kilter mom (Ruth Gordon, amazing as always), the attentions of boys and men that have aged her beyond her years, and singing. The recording of a novelty song for her birthday leads to a different kind of attention - that of a studio agent (Roddy McDowall) and powerful producer (Christopher Plummer). As Daisy is crafted into being America's favorite singing street urchin, she gets seduced by matinee idol Wade Lewis (Robert Redford) ...and her nightmare is just

Contest: Win The Deuce: The Complete Third Season on DVD!
The Deuce: The Complete Third Season brings us into the world of 1985, just as VHS overtakes film as the primary medium for porn production and distribution. The lure of the California sunshine, the city's aggressive takeover of commercial sex properties in Times Square and the devastating impact of the AIDS epidemic mark the end of an era. With the party of the 1970s winding down, 42nd Street has deteriorated into a hive of uncontrolled violent crime and seedy video stores, making urban renewal seem more unlikely than ever before. Following the interconnected lives of Times Square's barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police, mobsters, porn actors and producers, the eight-episode third season of The Deuce brings the series' arc to a dramatic
