Ted Danson is back in the small-screen spotlight, as his hit series The Good Place heads toward the end of its fourth and final season. Danson has been acting since the ‘70s, although his breakout role came in the ‘80s as the bartender in Cheers. He’s won awards, covered sitcoms, crime shows, and movies in every genre, and it’s almost impossible to pick his absolute best roles…but we’ve given it a shot anyway. For five of his best-known characters, we’ve got the perfect Quirk recommendations (and they might be just as good for fans, too).

Many writers dream of one day seeing their work on the big screen. But as a writer, who can you trust to adapt your life’s work? Sometimes the best person for the job is yourself! And that’s exactly what the writers on this list did—they adapted their own screenplays.

We’ve all seen the memes. Those GIFs of Leonardo DiCaprio toasting the camera in his Jay Gatsby best, accompanied by some variation on the phrase “The roaring ‘20s are back!” But what if we weren’t living in an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel? What if, spoiler alert, we weren’t huge fans of dying? It’s 2020 and we’re here to definitively say: your decade does not need to be roaring. So here are a few book recommendations for our kind of party.

As the decade rolls down to its inevitable end, it is hard to think that the twenty first century is nearly a quarter done. It is weird though that the feeling of finality is nothing more than an artifice, a presentation of an idea which has no bearing on reality. The clock will strike midnight on December of 2019 and in a flash, it will be Jan 1st 2020. The world will continue to turn and life will continue forward essentially undisturbed. Much like the passage of time, there are some stories which seemingly will never end and with that in mind, we've have decided to provide a list of tales which seem to have an infinite shelf life.

Bah, Humbug! It’s that time of year again, and while most people are carol singing, preparing turkey, and wrapping gifts, there are always a few who just can’t get into the holiday spirit. Maybe it’s a hatred of consumerism, maybe it seems like more stress than it’s worth, maybe the whole thing just seems a little forced… but whatever the reason, it's how some people feel. If you’ve got a holiday humbug in your life, though, we’ve got the perfect books for you to gift them (even if they hate gifts). From the books to warm their hearts to those to get them some much-needed alone time, these are the best reads for anyone who is embracing their inner Scrooge.
