SUIT ‘GAMES’

mg

Despite its star power and provocative plot, Mind Games didn’t connect with an audience as big as it deserved. The short life of the series, however, cannot be blamed on its wardrobe department, which dressed stars like Christian Slater and Jamie Ray Newman in timeless fashions from top labels. And while Mind Games may be gone, some of the best pieces of its wardrobe remain – and is available to fans at VIP Fan Auctions at some amazing prices. Currently available is Sam Gordon’s (Newman) Hugo Boss suit and shirt and Ross Edward’s (Slater) Reda suit, Diesel shoes and Armani Collezioni shirt.

FLASK OF BRILLIANCE

The therapy group on Anger Management is an eclectic bunch of characters, none more politically incorrect than Barry Corbin’s Vietnam veteran Ed. This crusty old curmudgeon’s anger issues hit everyone equally, however, but his always-handy flask (pictured above) helps him (and his therapist Charlie) take the edge off of uncomfortable situations. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the screen-used flask, as well as Ed’s duffle bag and glasses featured on the series, to the fan who casts the winning bid. Click here for more information and get in on the bidding today – it may be the closet you ever come to tipping back a drink with Hollywood legend – and Anger Management star – Charlie Sheen!

‘MIND’ GARB

CustomImage

Quirky-yet-cool and thrilling-yet-cerebral, Mind Games had all the makings of a hit TV show. And with Christian Slater as a con-man and Steve Zahn as a bipolar ex-psych professor – who also happen to be brothers – it had star-power and interesting characters. Sadly, Mind Games slipped off the television schedule a month after it first aired, but fans of the series, its stars or its stylish wardrobe have an opportunity to keep a piece of Mind Games for themselves. VIP Fan Auctions is offering a number of screen-worn, designer wardrobe items from the series, including a John Varvatos jacket, a pair or leather Frye boots, a wool Club Monaco coat (pictured above) and a pair of single-breasted sport coats (Theory and Paul Smith) worn by Christian Slater. These auctions are ending soon, so click here to see everything that’s available from the Mind Games set and grab yourself a piece of clothing with an interesting backstory!

Feeling Optimistic About Fargo Season 2

 

what-are-you-most-excited-for-in-fargo-season-2-550929

It’s always a difficult undertaking to adapt something from the big screen to the small and very few have succeeded, but it seems especially foolhardy in the case of Fargo. When FX announced their plans to turn the movie into a series, many people had their doubts. Who other than Frances McDormand, after all, could portray pregnant cop Marge Gunderson with such sincerity and competence? Who other than William H. Macy could nail the sniveling, sinister cowardice of Jerry Lundegaard? And perhaps most importantly, who could master the darkly humorous sinister tone of the film other than the Coen brothers themselves? As it turns out, Noah Hawley could.

The mastermind behind the Fargo TV series managed to dispel my fears by the end of its brilliant, fearless pilot. He didn’t try to copy the original story he developed it into more of a companion piece, linked by tone, season and general locale – plus one minor plot element that only briefly comes into play. Also, the new iterations of the iconic characters pay suitable homage to their inspirations while taking on lives and stories of their own – a difficult balancing act to pull off. Lester Nygaard’s plot is particularly fascinating for how far the series takes his transformation, well beyond anything even implied with Lundegaard in the film. Hawley pushes his characters and plotlines into bold new places with each succeeding episode, building a stellar cast of characters both three dimensional and humorously simple-minded in fitting with the Coens’ satirical version of small-town Minnesota.

Originally intended as only a miniseries, Fargo has been picked up for a second season, only tangentially related to the first. The show is poised to become an anthology series in the vein of True Detective. With Hawley at the helm again, it’s okay to be optimistic of the future of Fargo. The second season begins October 12.

LINDSAY LOHAN’S WHISKEY-A-GUM-GUM

There may never have been an on-screen pairing as perfect as Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen in Anger Management. Both were setting tabloids ablaze with their wild behavior, and Anger Management capitalized on it in the hilarious second-season episode “Charlie Gets Lindsay Lohan Into Trouble.” The actress, playing a version of herself, hires Charlie to be her anger-management therapist on the set of a Japanese commercial shoot for “Happy Whiskey Chew Gum” (pictured above). Rules are broken, paparazzi are summoned and hilarity ensues. VIP Fan Auctions is giving one fan an opportunity to get in on the Sheen-Lohan fun by offering the Christian Dior designer sunglasses Lindsay Lohan wore on-screen during the episode – as well as her cell phone cover and two packs of Happy Whiskey Chew Gum!
