    WHERE Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, Hollywood, CA WHEN March 15, 2014 Tonight I was so excited to attend the PaleyFest panel for “Orange is the New Black”. The addictive, binge-watch-it-in-one-day Netflix series is groundbreaking, funny, and touching. And, also, it was awesome to see, like, twelve badass women on the stage tonight. Girl power!

    WHERE The El Capitan on Hollywood Boulevard WHEN March 13, 2014 STORY & PHOTOS So, I didn’t mean to stumble upon the Hollywood premiere of “Captain America: Winter Soldier”, but it was held at Disney’s El Capitan theater, which is directly across the street from the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center. I was at the Dolby waiting to head in for the “Veronica Mars” PaleyFest reunion, and had a few minutes to kill so I snapped some photos:

    Event: “Community” PaleyFest Panel

    WHERE Saban Theatre, Beverly Hills, CA WHEN March 5, 2013 STORY & PHOTOS I love “Community”, and the fact that it’s always on the cusp of cancellation breaks my heart. Why can’t everyone appreciate its humor and sincerity? Anyway, one gift I get is that “Community” is honored every year at PaleyFest and I get to go bask for a few hours in the glow of the amazing and hilarious cast. This year’s panel was especially amazing because, instead of screening an episode, the cast decided to do a live table-read of episode 401, “History 101”.

I contacted the appropriate people and – voila – I had a reservation to attend. The taping was in a building on Wilshire that houses offices and studios for the E! Network. In fact, “Web Soup” tapes in the same space as “The Soup” (hosted by one of my faves, Joel McHale).

And if you didn’t follow that previous sentence: Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City, which was adapted into HBO’s hugely successful show “Sex and the City”, has published a prequel that follows Carrie Bradshaw in her teen years.
