LAist watches: Melinda and Melinda

Woody Allen is decidedly New York (not a bad thing, we love New York, obviously) His movies are a love affair with the city and vibrate with its rythms. During his long career, he has given us some great films. Sadly, his recent efforts have left us wondering if, perhaps, one of the masters has lost his way.

Last night, we finally had the chance to see William Shakesphere's "As you like it" at the Ahmanson Theater in downtown LA.

Tonight on NBC watch "The Daily Show's" Steve Carell (who we love) and the rest of the gang on the American version of the BBC's fantastically funny The Office. Is the new interpretation as good as the BBC version? Not as good,...
