It’s baaaaaack! Everyone’s favorite trashy Monday night TV show, “Bachelor Pad,” is back for its second season. In case you need a refresher, here’s the premise: 18 former contestants on ABC’s “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” series, living in a house together, having their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop trying to fall in love and instead focus on winning money. Greed! Hookups! Tears! The good, the bad, and the ugly of what happened in the first episode — which was a revoltingly jam-packed three hours — after the jump …

Back in 2004, I was sent to review a little movie called “Sideways.” It was the story of two 40-something dudes embarking on a wine-tasting trip, one of them hoping for a last fling before he gets married.

And he met his end when he slipped on a subway platform and was hit by an oncoming train. The show apparently implies that his new wife might have given him a little push when she found out he was unfaithful. Furthermore, at his funeral, she calls the accident a “meat explosion.” Which, gross!
But Charlie Sheen isn’t fazed. Keep reading »
Let’s face it: keeping up with pop culture is difficult. With more than 1000 channels worth of TV shows, not to mention a new flood of movies and music every week, it’s practically a full-time job to keep up with everything. Luckily, it is my full-time job. So after the jump, your cheat sheet of the TV shows you need to watch, the albums you need to hear, the movies you need to see, and much, much more this week.

You’ve seen shadow puppets before (maybe not since you were four), but never one like this. It’s a woman! No, it’s a man! No, it’s an optical illusion! Who knew shadow puppetry could be so dirty? [Lovegifs] Keep reading »
