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 updates just in time for the start of the fall TV season on September 2. Keep reading »

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 learned Pete’s spunk was just as potent as ever. Oh, and Peggy is our hero. Keep reading »

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 a previous season, I wasn’t really excited to watch it. I had a hard time figuring out why I should care.The best part of Runway for me is the fashion and this time it wasn’t fashion, but theatrics. And not haute couture theatrics that must convey a fashion aesthetic and drama. I get that the queens each have a character and their costumes must portray that character, but we learned very little about who these gals are. Sure, each of them had a catch phrase and a cool name, but there has to be more. I would have loved to learn how the queens get into drag because as guest judge RuPaul explained, “Drag is all smoke and mirrors.” But all we learned was that they stuff their bras, duh, and they must hide the “candy” (that is exactly what you think it is).

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 tan, though I gave up the booth years ago in favor laying out on my roof deck and slathering on bottled self-tanner. (May I recommend, by the way, that Blayne use a bronzer for African-American women in between tanning booth sessions? It’s my secret.) In any case, Blayne is just one of the many Project Runway contestants this season that seems to be competing to coin the show’s next catchphrase rather than to win the title of Top Designer — after all, “fierce hot tranny mess” is worn the hell out, and Blayne’s “holla atcha boy” is desperate to take its place. While we’re not convinced it’s bankable enough, it’s certainly better than Suede’s desire to make his own name — spoken constantly in third person — the next big utterance on reality TV. Amelia does not like Suede, she does not like Suede at all. Keep reading »

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 actually airs, only half of it is new content. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to learn that Bees was a whole hour long, so I settled in for an extended romp with mindless television. But the thing is, this show isn’t mindless and neither are its contestants. Some of these girls are real schemers. Keep reading »

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 haven’t seen the two-hour episode (What is wrong with you? Don’t you have PRIORITIES?), I’ll put my Top Five Favorite Moments after the jump… Keep reading »
