With the merging companies, there is trouble, tension and transition everywhere. Merging clients and jobs, dealing with logistics of job security and office space — the office is in turmoil, and so is everyone’s life around it. And this is all before the assassination of Bobby Kennedy. Unlike the MLK Jr. assassination, ”Mad Men” chose to put this assassination at the tail end of an episode that centered on the chaos of the character’s lives, rather than the chaos associated with this tragedy.
When did Ted become such a bad ass? Loved, loved, loved Ted this episode. It took him a little bit to find his groove—but you’d be hard pressed to find someone who wouldn’t act this way at first when becoming business partners with Don Draper. I mean, DON DRAPER. Ted feels insignificant, I think he feels a little bit like a phoney—as a fraud. He can’t drink like Don. He doesn’t have the same confidence. But once he is reminded that, yes, he owns half this building. He’s a goddamn pilot and he is the only chivalrous man that works at this ad agency, he gets his swagger back. Don put it best: “No matter what I say, you’re the guy who flew us up here in his own plane.” Period. Read more on College Candy…
The good news is “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” has been picked up for another season! WOOT! And the bad news is … well, you know the bad news. The season is over and now I have nothing to look forward to on Wednesday nights. I’m almost too sad to write about the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” finale, but I will buck up because Alana would want me to. As always there were too many precious moments for me to cover them all. With a heavy heart, I bring you my favorite nuggets from last night’s finale. TEARDROP. Keep reading »
I forbid you to talk about how next week is the finale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” No, we are NOT going to discuss it. I am still working on my post-”Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” contingency plan and until then, I am choosing to remain in denial. Let’s talk about last night’s episode, the theme of which, I’ve decided, was FACE. Everyone was giving it. Mostly not on purpose. There was also plenty of farting and snot. Obviously. Some of my favorite moments after the jump. Keep reading »
Ami: I am already anticipating going into a deep depression when this season of “Here Comes Honey Boo” ends. I can feel it coming. And I can’t even bare to think of it. But we still have episodes to discuss and they are still mind-blowing, heart warming and disgusting all at once. I am going to skip the heart warming stuff where Alana and Sugar Bear go on a father/daughter outing to the skating rink and Alana sells lemonade to raise money for her next pageant (collective Awwwwwww), and get into the gizzards of the episode. Prepare yourself for smell breaths and more after the jump. Keep reading »
This season of “Bachelor Pad” atoned for all of its boringness in the finale. Let’s start off light, before I delve into the dark and dirty underbelly where people betray one another and we ponder the ways in which money corrupts human beings. Let’s start with Jamie’s ridiculous Pocahontas outfit. It’s as if she thought we would forget what a lunatic she was on the show by dressing like an even bigger lunatic for the finale. It didn’t work. I had almost forgotten. But her outfit brought all the cringeworthy memories back — the awkward makeout session with Chris, how she wanted to fall in love on TV so her kids could see it. Ugh. And just like the false eyelashes and face jewelry she wore, her Padmates called her out for being “fake.” But one couple found something real. Find out which couple, to quote Rihanna, “found love in a hopeless place,” after the jump. Keep reading »
I have come to trust in the power of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” I know that each week, it will leave me renewed and invigorated about life, teach me things I never would have known, take me places I never would have travelled … like Shhh! It’s A Wig or the local department store. First of all, I would like to congratulate the person who came up with the name Shhh! It’s A Wig. After the jump, Shhh! It’s A Wig and much, much more.
