“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: The Best & Worst Moments From Last Night’s Premiere

Woohoo! “The Bachelorette” is back! Andi Dorfman, last season’s tough talking DA who told Juan Pablo where to stick it, is basically this show’s ideal star. She’s pretty, she’s feisty and, most of all, she is desperate to find love and be engaged at the end. Unfortunately for her, the casting directors phoned it the fuck i…

The Most Valuable Lesson I Learned From Last Night’s “Mad Men”

Blow job, ladies. Blow. Jobs.

In last night’s episode of “Mad Men,” Megan Draper’s saucy French-speaking minx of a mother was back in town, and she had some advice for Megan, whose distance from husband Don was all but obvious. “He may think you belong more to other people than he does to…

“Game Of Thrones” Recap: Jon Snow & Ygritte 4 Ever

Last week on “Game of Thrones,” we learned the one thing Jon Snow knows — cunnilingus — and this week, Ygritte, the lucky recipient of his tongue lashing, made it clear she’s not letting him go. Prepping for this climb up the giant ice wall, Ygritte calls Jon out, saying she knows he is really…

“Game Of Thrones” Recap: Jon Snow Knows Something & Jaime Lannister Explains Himself — Plus, A Whole Lot Of Bare Butts!

I wasn’t sure if “Game Of Thrones” could get better than Khaleesi raising fire-breathing dragon hell, but last night’s episode might have been even better than the week prior. First of all, SO MANY BARE ASSES. And taut ones at that! Forget getting a bikini body, I want a winter is coming body, mmkay? Anyway, let’s review some of…

“Mad Men” Recap: Joan Holloway Is The Queen Bee & Don Draper Is Officially Dead To Me

Is it just me, or has this season of “Mad Men” been so depressing? Well written and smart, as always, but just dire. Six seasons in, Don Draper is still the same unfaithful cad that he’s always been, seemingly incapable of evolving. I used to have so much empathy in my heart for Don, but…

“The Walking Dead” Season 3 Concludes With A Bang

Don’t get your panties in a bunch — I’ve learned my lesson from prior recapping experiences and won’t be giving away any “Walking Dead” season finale spoilers before the jump on this post. If you click on and see something you didn’t want to see, you have only yourself to blame!

“The Bachelor” Recap: The Final Three Get Whittled Down To Two…

Well, the journey is almost over. Last week, Bachelor Bronze visited the final four’s hometowns and sent sweet Des packing because he was totallys cared of her tattooed brother. This week, it’s time to get the romance on, as Sean and the final three travel to Thailand so Sean can bang all three women o…

“The Bachelor” Recap: Tierra Will Not Lose Her Sparkle!

We have reached a pivotal moment in every “Bachelor” series — it’s time for our lovelorn hunk to choose which four women will get to take him home to meet their families. Bachelor Bronze Sean Lowe has so whittled down his potential wives to six women: AshLee, Catherine, Dez, Lesley, Lindsay and Tierra. At thi…

“The Walking Dead” Recap: Rick Continues To Lose His Marbles & Andrea Still Sucks

Thank god, Sunday nights have finally got more gratuitously violent and bloody again! “The Walking Dead” is back! In last night’s episode, we finally found out whether either or both of the redneck brothers made it out of the Governor’s demented zombie cock fight alive, if Andrea has grown a brain, and whether or not new…

“The Bachelor” Recap: Tierra Almost Freezes To Death & One Woman Is Sent Home Before The Rose Ceremony

Two episodes of “The Bachelor” in one week? Cat lady Christmas has come early this year! I’m not sure why ABC felt these two episodes were climactic enough to warrant back to back airings, but I’m not complaining. On Monday’s episode, Tierra The Tierrable established herself not only as this season’s villain, but its resident bunny boiler…

“The Bachelor” Recap: Tierra Has Gone From Terrible To Frightening

Last night, prior to watching “The Bachelor,” I was chatting away on the phone with a friend. “Oh shit, I gotta go,” I said. “I have to watch ‘The Bachelor.'”

“Ughhhh,” he moaned. “I feel so sorry for you.”

“Don’t,” I assured him. “This season is awesome.” And I meant it. Thi…

“The Bachelor” Recap: One Woman Won’t Kiss Sean & Another Gets A Date Fit For A Hooker

I’ve talked a lot about the diversity on “The Bachelor” this season, specifically focusing on the two black women who’ve made it farther than in any of the previous seasons. But there are also two other women of color in Sean’s group of lucky paramours — Catherine, who’s Asian, and Selma, who’s Iraqi. Last night,…

It’s A “Nashville” Recap, Y’All: Emotional Confrontations Galore!

God, could I love this show any more than I do? It gets better every week! Last night’s episode was my favorite one yet, even though my couch is now stained with tears thanks to all the emotional confrontations. Ready to relive the drama with me? Let’s do this…

“The Bachelor” Recap: The Claws Start To Come Out & Racial Diversity Is Actually Discussed

Dare I say it? I’m actually starting to seriously like and actually crush on Bachelor Bronze and it’s not just because if I close my eyes he sounds like Channing Tatum! I honestly think Sean may be, as Chris Harrison would say, the most sincere “Bachelor” in the history of the show, but also, gulp, the most openminded. I’m…

“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Recap: A Mega Multi-Meal Thanksgiving

This episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo” made me realize that I’ve been celebrating Thanksgiving wrong all these years. I’ve never made a Junecrow to scare the gnats away or ate Billy Bob mega multi-meal style or worn a fuzzy turkey hat or used the wishbone as a toothpick. What have I been doing with…

Sunday Boob Tube Bonanza: Basically, I Just Kept Saying “Holy $%#&!” During The “Dexter” And “Homeland” Finales

OMG. Those three letters really sum up last night’s finales of “Dexter” and “Homeland,” but of course I have plenty more to say. Spoilers after the jump!

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: How Will “Dexter” & “Homeland” End?

Sadly, this week’s recap post is less of a bonanza than usual, because “The Walking Dead” is on mid-season hiatus until February, which means I’m only recapping “Homeland” and “Dexter.” It’s a Sunday Night Boob Tube Shindig, I suppose. And then next week, the season finales of “Dexter” and “Homeland” air, which means when “The…

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: “Dexter”‘s New Daddy Issues, An Epic Face-Off On “The Walking Dead” & A Heart-Stopping “Homeland”

Thanks to last night’s episodes of “The Walking Dead” and “Homeland,” my anxiety levels are way above already above-normal leves. Seriously, the majority of the recaps for each show could be summarized as simply “OMG!!!!!” However, I shall put aside my excitement and delve deeper into both these episodes, as well as last night’s ho-hum…

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: Brody Has Regrets & Dexter Has A Lady Problem

Sorry, a day late on the “Dexter” and “Homeland” recaps — but I have a surprise! First of all, I’m so over “Revenge.” I have a new Sunday TV love and it’s called “The Walking Dead.” I have devoted every waking, non-working moment to catching up on the series and with just five episodes to…

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: The Hottest “Dexter” Scene Ever?

This week’s recap post does not include “Revenge,” as I went to bed at, like, 8:30 last night and haven’t watched yet. However, I did watch screeners of both “Dexter” and “Homeland” earlier in the week and will recap those as usual after the jump. (And, let’s face it, “Revenge” has been kind of dull…
