Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Tag Archives: showtime
I was making my way through the subway station this morning, when BAM! there was Mary-Louise Parker, splayed out across a spider web wearing a green bustier and bejeweled undies. Great!, I thought, another season of “Weeds” is on its way. But why do they have to make Mary-Louise all sexy to advertise the show? Keep reading »
What’s better than a scandal? A sex scandal! When the studly star of a TV show about a Los Angeles novelist who can’t keep it in his pants revealed he suffered from the same sex addiction as his character, I had to wonder: Am I still going to enjoy watching David Duchovny hump his was through “Californication?” Would the show that once had his Golden Globe winning character, Hank Moody, getting punched in the face as he orgasms still be willing to go there, in light of his highly publicized sexual addiction problem? Within the first minutes of last night’s season premiere, I had my answer. In the opening sequence, Moody wakes up and whispers to his girlfriend, “I’ve got a godlike erection right now, and it seems a shame to waste it.” Touché, Hank! In this case of art imitating life, the on-screen sex has turned truly compelling. And here’s the kicker. Now, Moody’s trying to be monogamous. Oh, the irony. Maybe “Californication” fans like me are the ones who need the intimacy fix? It’s a good thing they’re not writing off Duchovny or Hank Moody yet. How else would the rest of us get off vicariously?
- Lykke Li Youth Novels
A Frisky favorite, we’ve been anxiously anticipating the release of Lykke Li’s first full length studio recording. And Youth Novels lives up to her ladylike hype! This Swedish singer’s sound is so cute and clap-able without pandering to pathetic pop trends. You’ll nod your head to her thoughtfully luscious vocals and sweet beats. This girl’s got it!
The L Word has one hot television season left, tear. But it looks like there’s hope for at least one lucky lady! At the Television Critics Association press tour, Showtime’s Entertainment President, Robert Greenblatt promised that there’s a spin off in the works. Hip, hip, hooray! The best part is, you won’t have to rely on your pricey cable provider for some sweet lesbo lovin’, as these are actually webisodes that will be available on the internet. Plus, Greenblatt also promised that The L Word will continue on the web “to a large extent”, and whatever that mumbojumbo means, it’s great news for fans. After all, how could they abandon us when gay marriage is going legal, teen queen Lindsay Lohan just switched teams, and the #1 song on the Billboard Charts is Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl (And I Liked It)”?! The sixth season of the groundbreaking show goes into production this fall for its 2009 slot and the spin-off will be taped simultaneously. L Word creator Ilene Chaiken is currently working on casting, so until she’s got her ladies lined up, she’s keeping quiet about the new program’s deets. We hope they give the show to sexy hairstylist Shane or even quirky blogger, Alice. But really, like all our favorite things, we’ll take it where we can get it. [After Ellen]

On Monday night’s third episode of Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Belle had an overnight job with a client — who only seemed to want to sleep. Bored out of her mind, Belle went downstairs to get a drink and meets another man who wants to hire her straight away. This is clearly the call girl’s version of when you have Friday night plans with that guy you’ve been seeing, but then that hot guy from work asks if you want to hang out and you agree to both without really considering the logistics. In the clip above, Belle explains the three rules of conversation with a client, which also totally apply to first dates as well. [Showtime: Secret Diary Of A Call Girl] Keep reading »
