Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »
It’s Friday night, and nothing sounds better than cozying up together in bed with takeout, a beautiful bottle of wine and a full Netflix queue that’s just calling your name. We know, we know, it’s Valentine’s Day. But why should a snuggle-fest on February 14th be any less delicious? Try one of these 30 must watch shows on YourTango…
Welp, after 18 seasons of “The Bachelor” (and nine seasons of “The Bachelorette”), I think I might be ready to throw in the towel on the entire franchise. I know, what took me so long? “The Bachelor” has always been a satisfying guilty pleasure, but this season, with the casting of Juan Pablo Galavis, I was actually expecting to be a little more emotionally invested. I liked Juan Pablo, based on what little we knew of him from his appearance on the previous season of “The Bachelorette.” But oh, how the sexy has fallen. In addition to revealing in an interview that he’s a big ol’ homophobe in real life, on screen Juan Pablo has turned out to be a big ol’ stinker. And after last night’s episode, I’m finally ready to say that he’s the most sexist, slut-shaming, hypocritical “Bachelor” the show has ever had. Here are just four reasons why. Keep reading »
I mean, just about anything was more exciting than last night’s Super Bowl, but Aziz Ansari‘s random decision to livetweet an imaginary Super Bowl between the Dillon Panthers and the East Dillon Lions — from “Friday Night Lights” — was legitimately entertaining. Some of the cast members of the show even got in on the fun. Scott Porter, who played Jason Street on “FNL,” tweeted the above photo, alongside Michael B. Jordan, who played Vince Howard.

HBO has released a mess of new promo photos for the upcoming fourth season of “Game of Thrones,” which premieres on April 6. When we last left the seven kingdoms, Jaime Lannister had finally been reunited with his sister/lover, Queen Cersei; Tyrion and Sansa were married, but had not made a baby neither of them want, much to the chagrin of mean Daddy Lannister; we were still mourning the deaths of some very major characters, who perished in the infamous Red Wedding; and Daenerys had assembled her army of slaves and was ready to open a can o’ whoop ass on anyone who dared deny Khaleesi. So what’s ahead for season four? Let’s see what we can figure out based on these 16 promo photos…
Realistic marriages have little real estate on television, and feminist marriages even less. “Mad Men” and “The Sopranos” were studies of estrangement; “Breaking Bad” of spousal abuse. On “Friends,” marriage meant banishment forever on to the suburbs.
Imagine my excitement, then, on chipping my way into the first DVD set of “Borgen” — the so-called ‘Danish West Wing’ — and finding a perfectly preserved companion marriage. The show centers on Denmark’s first female prime minister, the charismatic Birgitte Nyborg Christensen, flanked on one side by her supportive husband Philip (Mikael Birkkjær) and children, and on the other by a fickle coalition government.

Whether you like them or not, Snooki, The Situation and company will long be missed. The “Jersey Shore” cast created a legacy durable enough that other reality TV wannabes are happy to carry on their traditions in their absence. “Mexico Shore,” which is exactly what it sounds like, is now in the works to fill the void that the Seaside Heights meatballs left in our reality-loving hearts. MTV Latin America will start airing the series in September. Keep reading »
