Feedback from our readers
When I opened my mailbox and saw the Summer Must List double issue, I said out loud, ”Holy cow!” And when I realized it was Ryan Reynolds, I think I drooled a little. I have loved Ryan since I saw him on Scrubs and in Blade: Trinity. He is one of the best actors out there, and I enjoy everything he’s in. Thank you for giving me not one but four delicious covers of him. His wife Scarlett Johansson is one lucky chick!
Damn you for that Ryan Reynolds cover! As a letter carrier, I got very flustered having to look at that all day. I don’t know how many missorts and misdeliveries it caused, but I don’t think my customers appreciated it. On the other hand, it is possibly your best cover ever. Wow!
Jeffrey Donovan recently tweeted about his EW photo shoot, and since then I’ve been eagerly waiting for him to appear in your pages. To be honest, I was hoping for a multipage spread. But I was thrilled to find him as your Must Spy Guy. I tore through the first two seasons of Burn Notice in less than a week and am happily watching season 3. It’s my favorite show on TV!
I’m glad you plugged Kaya Scodelario’s character on Skins, Effy, as the Must Bad Girl. I’m happy you mentioned the show, too. Since I’ve now become a fan of BBC TV, I can also recommend Doctor Who and Torchwood to anyone who loves to watch great television series.
Thanks for featuring the girls of Greek in your Must List issue. It’s nice to see the cast get some recognition. I’ll take them over Gossip Girl‘s hoity-toity Upper East Siders any day.
Thank you for making Craig Ferguson your Must Monologuist. He is the most entertaining late-night host: quick, spontaneous, witty. His puppets and his rattlesnake mug really crack me up.
What a great issue. The muses must’ve come down and kissed every single one of your writers. Diablo Cody’s column on The Real Housewives of New Jersey was sharp as always. Scott Brown’s Hit List made me giggle…loudly. (The guy sitting across from me at the coffee shop glanced up from his laptop and gave me a suspicious look.) And your loincloth quiz made me realize I may be a closet crotch-watcher. Yikes.
Woody Allen’s Winning ‘Wives’
I really enjoyed Owen Gleiberman’s list of Woody Allen’s best and worst films (Movies section). I completely agreed with the list except for one glaring omission: Husbands and Wives ranks in his top five. The performances, including that of Oscar nominee Judy Davis, were compelling and provided a real insight into his relationship with Mia Farrow.
