Clips: Tina Fey Stops By SNL To Play Sarah Palin

Did you catch Tina Fey portraying her long-lost-twin, Sarah Palin, on Saturday Night Live last night? How do you think she did? Personally, I thought her vocal inflections and mannerisms were dead on — I wonder how much it would cost them to have her play the role for at least the rest of the election? Keep reading »

Sex On TV: Grey’s Anatomy Gives Some Mouth-To-Mouth

McDreamy and McSteamy aren’t the only studs heating up Grey’s Anatomy. On Thursday’s episode, there was some bonus guy-on-guy action. A couple hot-bodied and hot-blooded military men we’re making soft-lipped love. One was even still in his uniform — God Bless America! If you’d like to get in on the drama, check out the clip above. This is especially cool considering the show had some gay bashing problems backstage last year. Now, fingers crossed they’ll get Steams and Dreams to make out…talk about a fantasy sequence!

5 Reasons We Love…Skins

  1. The show is about a bunch of teenagers who live in Bristol, England, so they use all sorts of awesome slang, i.e., “spliff” means marijuana.
  2. Skins has its own Twitter, and if you follow it, you’ll learn a new British word every day.
  3. Each episode focuses on one character’s perspective, so you see Cassie battling an eating disorder, Jal dealing with a famous father, and Tony trying to pick up private school girls by joining a choir — stuff that wouldn’t really get touched on if the show just focused on the group as a whole. And the characters are so different you’ll fall in love with at least one of them (we heart Cassie).
  4. BBC America airs episodes Sundays at 9 and 10 p.m. but replays them Mondays at 12, 1, 3, and 4 a.m., so if you’re an insomniac, you’ll have something to watch besides infomercials at least one day a week.
  5. The actors actually look like they’re 17 years old and in high school, unlike Naomi on the new 90210, who looks about 30.

Rad Girls Move To Men’s Network

Jackass was a cultural coup that destroyed the boundaries of what you could and couldn’t do on television. Guys like Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O and Ryan Dunn’s self-destructive irreverence created stunts that seemed to sum up the frustration of suburban teens. They were a band of effed-up friends who challenged each other to a gross out contest. The more parents and politicians huffed about their behavior, the more culturally validated the hipster antics became. They were relatable, extreme clowns — just boys being boys. But is it possible for girls to just be girls? Almost a decade after the groundbreaking show started, women are trying to pull off the same stunt on Rad Girls. Keep reading »

Plan B In Pop Culture

Births to teenagers are rising (435,000 babies were born to mothers between 15 and 19 years old in 2006, the first increase in nearly 15 years). Since government funded abstinence-only education doesn’t contribute much to teens’ knowledge about sex, STDs, and pregnancy, they can either get the information from their parents or pop culture. And because most parents have a hard time broaching the subject, pop culture it is. The things is, movies and TV shows aren’t doing their part when it comes to educating young women about their options. And, no, we’re not talking about abortion. As we wrote earlier, a small study showed that many young women haven’t even heard of Plan B, and they definitely don’t know how to get it. Below, a few examples of cases where Hollywood skipped over Plan B this year, limiting teen girls’ options to keeping the baby, putting it up for adoption, or having an abortion. Keep reading »
