Gossip Girl: This Was A Straight Up Filler Episode

Every television show needs to have that filler episode that addresses the obvious issues that are going to come up, particularly in the case of “Gossip Girl” — Where can they all go to college in order to continue the show? Just like “Beverly Hills, 90210″ and “Dawson’s Creek”, we’re sure creator Josh…

Mad Men: Don Draper’s Lost Weekend In Palm Springs

Last night’s episode of “Mad Men” gave viewers a much needed change of scenery — Don Draper and Pete Campbell flew out of Los Angeles to meet with various airline executives in pursuit of new business. But while Pete devoted his time to the task at hand, Draper took off for Palm Springs with a…

Sex On TV: Dirty Sexy Money Is Back With A Bang

Manhattan’s hottest and most scandal ridden family, “The Darlings”, came back into our lives last night with the season two premiere of “Dirty Sexy Money.” And if last night’s episode was any indication of the drama yet to come, we are surely in for a tantalizing ride.

Opening the episode was family…

Gossip Girl: The Only Thing That Can Take Out A Queen B Is A Queen S

Josh Schwartz is certainly turning up the heat. The media has been buzzing about the first three episodes of this season’s “Gossip Girl” as the best, but episode four had my best friend and I squealing from shock and awe.

First things first, OMFG Lord Marcus is banging his step mom Lady…

Recap + Poll: 90210 Winks & Nods At Some Classic Storylines

It’s becoming increasingly clear that the new 90210 is going to rip off certain aspects of story lines from the old Beverly Hills, 90210. On last night’s episode there were two such instances that were straight up nods to the old Nine-Oh. Read on…

The Hills Finally Gets Some Action In Vegas, Plus Audrina & LC Cry It Out

Thank you MTV for finally pulling together two episodes where SOMETHING actually happened on this dang show, and two episodes in a row nonetheless! Let’s start with my favorite quote by our token traitor, Stephanie Pratt. “You broke up with a guy who has a private jet?” Stephanie quips to Lauren. Classic, but…

Mad Men: Don Draper, You Are So BUSTED

I missed Peggy this week. Our favorite glass ceiling breaker took much of this week’s episode of Mad Men off and the episode, instead, focused on new assistant Jane, Don Draper’s new car (to replace the one he crashed when he was drunk driving with Bobbie Barrett), and Cooper’s new Mark Rothko painting.

90210 Redux: Did It Live Up To Your Expectations?

Last night was the premiere of the remake of the greatest teen drama ever made — 90210. Catherine and I immediately started IMing about our impressions the second we got into The Frisky offices this morning — our convo is after the jump, but check out a clip of the show above if…

“The Hills” Have Minimal Thrills

Every week I wonder why it is that I’m still watching and using coveted DVR space for The Hills. I’m sorry, maybe these girls are more interesting in real life, but NOTHING happens on this show. Last night I watched 22 minutes of Lauren deciding that she and Doug should just be friends.

Damn You Don Draper: Sex, Mirrors, And Mad Men

Last night’s episode of Mad Men really pissed me off. Oh, Don Draper, and your wiley, sexual ways. And damn you, Duck, for doing what you did to Chauncey! The episode was all about the two sides to women that men see and the two sides to Don that WE see. While Sterling…

Project Runway: Keith Whines His Way Home

Looks We Hated: Joe’s ugly motorcross look; Keith’s bland, ill-fitting, snooze-fest; Stella’s mismatched separates, shockingly devoid of leath-uh.

Last night’s episode of Project Runway featured the much anticipated return of an actually complicated and innovative challenge. The producers may have thought the drag queen episode was a doozy but dressing a bunch of dude…

“The Hills” Reveals Lo’s Wicked Side & Allows Spencer To Make Another Stupid Analogy

Lo Bosworth has managed to go from funny, affable dumb-but-in-a-cute-way best friend to totally bitchy and evil in a matter of episodes. Lo reminds me of the girls in high school who, even while they’re chatting with you, were totally judging your outfit and your hair and what you were eating. On last…

Eight Fall Shows We Watch: Where We Left Off

We’re extremely excited about the return of either of our favorite shows this fall, but we’ve realized that a season finale refresher is in order. Hey, when our lives and our homies’ lives have real cliffhangers, we can’t be expected to remember months later what happened to our friends on TV, too. Read our update…

Mad Men’s Peggy Olson Is Our New Hero

Last night’s episode of Mad Men finally answered so many lingering questions about Peggy Olson and brought up ever so many more about Don Draper — namely, “Can Draper ever change?” Additionally, the parallels and the bond between Peggy and Don were illuminated, a deeper side was revealed to Bobbie Barrett, and we…

Project Runway: What A Drag!

Designs We Hated [From Left]: Jerell’s Glittery Green Number; Daniel’s Sorbet Meltdown; Keith’s Filthy Howard the Duck Thing (Like Nina Garcia said, it is quite a puzzle)

On this week’s episode the designers were challenged to create an outfit for drag queens. Although this was a new challenge, not a recycle bin rescue from…

Project Runway: I Heart Blayne & The Retro Olympics

I give up. I totally have given into Blayne and have decided that he’s as lovable and funny as a puppy that’s just learning how to walk, but occasionally has accidents in your apartment that make you hate him for a couple minutes. Maybe it’s that we both have an addiction to being…

Catfights On TV: Strategies Of A Queen Bee

On Friday, I did indeed watch Queen Bees on the N, like I promised. And boy do I have to say that it was everything the network had promised. Cat fights. Lies. And diva-tude, galore. I usually get annoyed when producers release the first 10 minutes of a show because when the show…

The Lost Finale Rocked My World

Last night’s season finale of Lost was basically the best two hours of my life, I think. I was on the edge of my seat; I cried my eyes out; and at the end I’m pretty sure my entire building heard me scream, “What?!?!” As to not give away any spoilers to fellow fans who…
