“The Equalizer” is a superhero movie without an actual superhero. Denzel Washington plays Robert McCall, a kindly man who spends his days greeting people with a smile at a home improvement store. By night, he roams the streets beating up/killing crooked cops, thugs, pimps and mob bosses. He might not have Batman’s costume, gadgets, car or money, but he just as easily could have tracked down the Joker and vanquished Bane in about a day. With his skill set, he’s basically Dexter, Sherlock Holmes, MacGyver and Liam Neeson in “Taken” rolled into one.

A list of America’s most popular dog breeds
The American Kennel Club has been tracking the popularity of purebred dogs for 128 years as the number of recognized breeds grew from nine to 177. A list of the country’s most popular dog breeds by the decade, according to data released by the AKC:
— 1880s: Top five breeds (English setters, Irish setters, pointers, Irish water spaniels and Gordon setters) were all working gun dogs, which helped hunters retrieve game.
— 1890s: The Saint Bernard takes the No. 1. spot, becoming the only giant breed to reach the top but never return.
— 1900s: The collie debuts at No. 1. The Boston terrier becomes the first small companion dog to reach No. 2.
— 1910s: The Boston terrier becomes the top dog and remains the only American breed to reach that spot.
— 1920s: The German shepherd takes over at No. 1 in 1925.
— 1930s: Boston terriers reclaim the top spot, and cocker spaniels begin their impressive climb. In the 1930s, the decade of the Great Depression, all top 10 breeds are small or medium-sized companion dogs.
— 1940s: Cocker spaniels (American and English, all colors) begin their reign. Influences included My Own Brucie, who won dozens of best-of-show titles and a likeness on the cover of Life Magazine.
— 1950s: The beagle becomes the nation’s top breed for most of the decade. Charles Schultz’s Snoopy makes his first appearance in national newspapers on Oct. 4, 1950.
— 1960s: Poodles take over as No. 1 in 1960 and stay there until 1982.
— 1970s: Poodles have the top spot locked up but in a harbinger of things to come, the Labrador retriever makes the top 10 for the first time.
— 1980s: Cocker spaniels return to the top.
— 1990s: Labrador retrievers take over and hold tight through at least 2012. Hollywood’s fascination with pocket pups is having an effect, as the decade marks the first appearance of the Yorkshire terrier, and the Pomeranian returns to the top 10 for the first time since the 1930s.
— 2000s: The Labrador retriever is overwhelmingly No. 1.

New York -- Well aware that the television audience may be particularly sensitive, the Showtime network aired a disclaimer warning audiences of violent content in the season finales of its dramas “Homeland” and “Dexter” last weekend.

At the risk of raising ire from fans and lovers of Hostess snacks, I have to confess: I have never been a fan of Twinkies, Ho Hos, Ding Dongs, Zingers or Suzie Q’s. And I would say, outside of eating a package of powdered-sugar doughnuts on rare occasion, I haven’t touched a Twinkie or Hostess cake in more than 30 years. They were just too sweet for me, and I never liked the taste of them.
