What's Ahead For Lady Mary & Branson?

If you just saw the trailer for “Downton Abbey”‘s fifth season and are dying to know what’s next for The Crawleys, we’re here to give you a taste of what we will see come January! (Or get on a plane to London, where the fifth season is already on!) “It feels harder this year to talk about than any other previous series,” acknowledged Laura Carmichael at a recent press event. “We’re so stuck in not wanting to overshare and spoil!”

So what can the cast reveal?! This season opens in 1924 and there will be lots of new changes and personal journeys for each character. While Shirley MacLaine and Paul Giametti won’t be present this season, (though they may come back in the future!) new characters are coming in, like Simon Bricker (played by Richard E. Grant) and troublemaker Lady Anstruther (Anna Chancellor). Read on to find out what you can look forward to. Keep reading »

Adorable Kids Reenact Emmy Nominated TV Shows

Adorable Kids Reenact Emmy Nominated TV Shows
"Hey Jesse, Wanna Cook Crystal Meth?"

It’s that time again! Awards season is upon us, and what better way to remind us that we’re still irrelevant for not having watched “Breaking Bad” than by continuing to nominate it for things, am I right? Anyway…

Tons of great TV shows are up for awards this year, including some of The Frisky’s personal favorites, “Orange Is The New Black,” “Modern Family,” “American Horror Story: Coven,” “Game of Thrones” & more. To give us a sneak peek at what’s to come, the cute kids who acted out the Oscar Best Picture nominees are back to make us want to steal them give the same treatment to this year’s EMMY nominated TV shows, including “Game Of Thrones,” “True Detective,” “House Of Cards,” “Mad Men,” “Downton Abbey,” and (surprise, surpass) “Breaking Bad.” Check out the video above for your daily dose of smiles, and don’t forget to tune in to The EMMY Awards live on NBC this Monday, August 25th, at 8 p.m. EST.

But that’s not all! The Frisky will be live-tweeting throughout the show and pre-show red carpet starting at 7 p.m. EST. Follow us on Twitter to join in on the fun!

11 Shows You Need To Watch If You Want To Be Relevant

To this day, I think I might be one of the only people on earth who has never seen an episode of “Breaking Bad.” Even though the series has ended, its legend lives on, and I still find myself excluded from any and all Walter White-related water cooler conversation. But once a show has been on the air for a while, it seems like a daunting task to start watching from the beginning, sometimes having to catch up on several seasons, just to be able to understand why everyone keeps saying “bitch” at the end of every sentence. But I learned the hard way: it’s better to be late to the game than to never show up at all. If you’re crippled by FOMO and want to feel like you’re relevant in society, you should be watching at least one of these TV shows with cult followings … even if it means locking yourself inside for the rest of spring. Your street cred will thank you.

In Defense Of How “Downton Abbey” Handled Its Controversial Rape Scene

In Defense Of How "Downton Abbey" Handled Its Controversial Rape Scene

Spoilers ahead.

In the most recent episode of “Downton Abbey” to air in America, the lady’s maid Anna Bates — whose story through four seasons has almost exclusively focused on her romance with her husband — is raped by a visiting valet. It is not the first example of sexual misconduct on the show. But it is the most sexually violent act to occur to any character. Not surprisingly, the incident has been hugely controversial.

When it first aired in the UK, viewers complained about sexual violence on an otherwise fairly frothy PBS program. (I say “fairly frothy” in a nod to the deaths of Sybil and Matthew.) The UK’s media regulatory agency declined to investigate the over 400 complaints made to both the agency and ITV, the channel on which “Downton” airs, saying that it provided a proper warning before the show about the content.  But now that it has aired on PBS here in America, a large share of the criticism is coming from feminist bloggers who take issue with how the rape was handled on the show.
