Winter is still coming! “Game of Thrones” season three will be back on March 31, and HBO just released 12 new character posters to whet our appetites for all the upcoming Stark vs. Lannister drama. Click on to check them all out! I’m so excited, I almost made water in my smallclothes!
In the past six months, anyone mentioning HBO is usually talking about hipster wunderkind Lena Dunham’s “Girls.” Obviously, they’re turning the channel as soon as the Dunham-saturated credits start rolling, and I suspect they’re probably leaving a bit hungry: “Girls” is a great appetizer for the rich and hearty entrée that is “Enlightened,” the much less-buzzed-about show that follows at 9:30 p.m. EST. I like to think of “Enlightened,” the brain child of Mike White and Laura Dern, as the hot, sad widower you meet in a tavern on a rainy night, while “Girls” is that guy that got to be “The Bachelor” twice.
Sadly, instead of both of these quality shows being touted and discussed equally, the “shocking” nudity and “brave” if not gratuitous sexuality featured on Dunham’s show has overshadowed the quietly profound gem that airs right after, and is quite sexy in its own way.
Yada yada, It’s my favorite show on television and it really deserves a thorough look-see! Why? I’ll tell you why… Keep reading »
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 on the Fantasty Suite before choosing which two he wants to introduce to his parents. Wait, Sean doesn’t do that. I forgot he’s a born-again virgin. Maybe he’ll finger bang them? Let’s find out! Keep reading »
Did you guys catch “Parks and Recreation” last night? SPOILER ALERT (that was already ruined by the headline, sorry): Leslie and Ben got married! In true Leslie fashion, the wedding came together at the last minute in a whirlwind of excitement and expertly delegated tasks. Leslie asked her BFF Ann to make her a dress based on the “sensuality of Eleanor Roosevelt combined with the animal magnetism of Leslie Stahl.” An hour later, Ann delivered this fabulous lace and newspaper creation, featuring articles and memos from Leslie’s illustrious career. God, could this show get any cuter? Check out another pic after the jump! [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
There’s a love of natural medicine … and then there are the people who are so into natural medicine that they end up on TLC’s “My Strange Addiction.” Margaret, 53, is one of the latter. She’s been treating her arthritis with fresh-from-the-honeycomb honey bees, which she forces to sting her by holding them against her skin with giant tweezers. And she does this 15 TIMES A DAY. (I don’t think there’s anything I do 15 times a day, not even think about Clive Owen naked.) Margaret’s favorite places to sting herself are on her forehead, tip of her nose, finger, ankle, elbows and hip. She also insists 10 stings “makes sex great” although she didn’t divulge 10 stings where. Even with all this great sex and honey on tap, Margaret’s husband JD is not really sure about this stinging stuff. “At this point now, with 15 stings a day, that’s when I’ve started to get really concerned about this,” JD told “My Strange Addiction.” Hopefully these two can work through their differences and Margaret doesn’t tell her man to buzz off. Oh, I am so punny! [Daily Mail UK]
In 1987, “Star Trek” re-launched the franchise with a whole new series, “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” Not only did TNG show us the next generation of characters in the “Star Trek” saga, it brought in the next generation of “Star Trek” fans who would grow up with the series. I was just a little kid sitting on the couch between my original-Trekker parents when the show premiered. I never imagined that, twenty-five years later, I would be in the room with the entire cast as they reminisced about their TNG experiences at Grand Slam XVIII. Here are some of the best moments from the reunion. Read more…
“Law & Order” is notorious for ripping its plots from the headlines, so I’m sort of surprised it took the show this long to do an episode inspired by Chris Brown and Rihanna’s abusive relationship. In the episode airing next week, “a promising singer is brutally attacked by her boyfriend, a popular hip hop star,” but she refuses to aid the police or the prosecution in their case against him. But, twist! He suddenly turns up dead … so, who’s the killer? Dun-dun! Promo above.
ABC must know they need to up the ante now that this season of “The Bachelor” is less Tierrable, because they’ve double-downed with two episodes this week. This first was a regular episode which aired last night featuring the four hometown dates (recap coming up after the jump). The second is a “Sean Tells All” special airing tonight. Why does SEAN get to tell all for an hour while no previous Bach has ever been given the same opportunity? You know who deserves a Tell All episode? Tierra’s eyebrow. You know that bitch has stories. Eh, whatever, you know I’ll be watching. After the jump, I’ll recap last night’s shenanigans, and reveal with woman was sent home. Keep reading »
