10. DVD: Shameless
Based on a popular British series of the same name, this show stars William H. Macy as the alcoholic patriarch of a poor Chicago clan that includes 17-year-old actor Cameron Monaghan as Ian, a gay, pot-smoking high school sophomore having secret affairs with a former bully and with his 35-year-old boss, a closeted Muslim shopkeeper. Season 1 of this raunchy dysfunctional family dramedy is now on DVD, while season 2 premieres on Showtime January 8.
9. TV: It’s A Brad Brad World
Brad Goreski, the Clark Kent–ish former assistant to fashionista Rachel Zoe, has escaped her Gollum-like clutches to become a boy wonder super-stylist in his own right. The bespectacled Bravolebrity will put his personal life on display, including his boyfriend, Gary Janetti, and their families. The series airs Monday nights on Bravo.
8. MUSIC: We Bought A Zoo soundtrack
Jon Thor Birgisson, better known as Icelandic alternative quartet Sigur Rós’s out front man Jónsi, delivers the expected otherworldly score for the Cameron Crowe–directed family film starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson. The music here is grandiose, hypnotic, and plaintive, and it manages to be simultaneously remote and accessible. This is an ideal introduction for newcomers to the beloved band.
