Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: Binge On "Sons Of Anarchy," Read Kindred & Make Mulled Wine

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!

A&E Brings Back Phil Robertson, Continues To Milk “Duck Dynasty” Controversy For All It’s Worth

duck dynasty

Ugh, could anything be more annoying that everyone who whined that Phil Robertson’s First Amendment rights were infringed upon after the “Duck Dynasty” star was suspended from A&E for making bigoted remarks about gays in GQ? I’m sorry, but y’all need to go Google the words “Pussy Riot” and “Siberian prison” and then hush. Alas, A&E announced this afternoon that it has reversed its decision to suspend Robertson from the channel. Keep reading »

Uh Huh, Rudolph: “Saturday Night Live” Spoofs Kimye’s “Bound 2″

Uh Huh, Rudolph: "Saturday Night Live" Spoofs Kimye's "Bound 2"
"Uh huh Rudolph!"

I’m psyched that “Saturday Night Live”‘s “Waking Up With Kimye” is seemingly going to be a regular sketch on the series (last night’s episode featured the sketch for a second time). This time, “Kimye” are celebrating the holidays with a new version of their “Bound 2″ video, featuring that hardworking, four-legged, red-nosed wonder. Uh huh, Rudolph!

Doin’ It In Your Childhood Bedroom Is What The Holidays Are All About (Apparently)

Doin' It In Your Childhood Bedroom Is What The Holidays Are All About
"Let's do it in my twin bed!"

This music video from last night’s Christmas episode of “Saturday Night Live,” featuring all of the female cast members singing about bring their boyfriends home for Christmas and getting it on in their childhood bedrooms, definitely cracked me up. But it also brought out my holiday blues. Because I don’t have a boyfriend to bring home for the holidays. And I don’t actually have a home to go back to either, because my parents divorced, the house I grew up in was sold, and my mom lives in a tiny apartment in Brooklyn. That means no childhood bedroom with a twin bed to fuck in with any future boyfriends either. So yeah, I’m laughing, but I’m also feeling pouty about not being able to participate in this holiday ritual. Sigh. It’ll pass.

“Duck Dynasty” Family Stands By Their Patriarch

  • The rest of the “Duck Dynasty” family is standing by patriarch Phil Robertson, who came under fire this week for anti-gay and racist comments he’s made, and was suspended by A&E from the show. The family released a statement saying: ”While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart’ and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Phil would never incite or encourage hate.” Mm-kay. They also implied the show would likely go on hiatus as well, continuing, “We cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.” I am perfectly fine with this show going away, so cheers! [CNN] Keep reading »

Can Television Have More Shonda Rhimes Please?

greys anatomy

Frustrating as it is, racism in Hollywood is still prevalent in 2013. When USA Today explored the absence of Black women in Hollywood this week, they highlighted the approach behind the racial diversity that can be found on “Grey’s Anatomy” — color-blind casting. Linda Lowy, the casting director behind the oh-so-addictive hospital drama created by Shonda Rhimes, explained, “When I cast the pilot of ‘Grey’s,’ Shonda didn’t give anybody a last name. She just said, ‘Linda, I want you to cast it the way you see the world.’” Usually casting notices come with descriptions like “White male, late 30s to early 50s, musclar” or “Asian female, any age, must look 15 to 17.” But with little physical description or race tied to the casting of the characters, the opportunities for more equality expanded in a major way.

“Love Actually 2″ Has Less Romance, More Wizards And Zombies

Love Actually 2 Trailer
"To me, you are perfect. As long as you're not a zombie."

Can you guys believe it’s been 10 years since “Love Actually” came out? It’s about time this Christmas classic got a sequel, don’t you think? Well, you’re in luck: the whole gang is back together in this hilarious and disturbing parody trailer for “Love Actually 2,” which catches up with the ensemble cast as they’ve whiled away the past decade killing zombies, teaching at Hogwarts, bounty hunting, threatening kidnappers, taking speech classes, and going on unexpected journeys. For the record, I would totally watch this movie if it were real. [YouTube]

Dreams Do Come True: Ian Ziering & I Acted Out A Classic Scene From “Beverly Hills, 90210″ And I Totally Died Inside

If you had told me, say, 15 years ago, that I would one day meet Ian Ziering, the actor who played Steve Sanders on one of my most favorite TV shows, “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and give him a brief lap dance, I would have said you were dreaming. And if you told me that I would meet him for a second time and that we would act out one of the most pivotal scenes for Steve’s character, I would have officially concluded you were crazy. But guess what? YOU’RE NOT CRAZY BECAUSE IAN ZIERING AND I TOTALLY ACTED OUT THE SCENE BETWEEN BRANDON AND STEVE AT THE SPRING DANCE, WHERE STEVE IS DRUNK AND TELLS BRANDON HE WAS ADOPTED. And a camera was there! And you can watch it above! And it was the best day ever! Eat you heart out, Jason Priestley. (And thank you, Ian, for being you. Because you are awesome.) [YouTube]

Rejoice! The “Sherlock” Season 3 Trailer Is Here

Sherlock Season 3 Trailer
"I don't care how you faked it, I want to know why."

There are a lot of reasons to be excited about the upcoming new year: a fresh start, a bunch of well-meaning but ultimately forgotten resolutions, a new supply of vacation days, etc. But the most exciting thing about 2014? Season 3 of “Sherlock” debuts on New Year’s Day in the UK and January 19th in the US. As fans know, the stellar second season ended with a bang (and a fall, and so many questions, and so many tears). This amazing trailer for season 3 promises a few answers, many more questions, and the glorious return of Benedict Cumberbatch in a long, tweed coat. Cannot wait. [YouTube]

P.S. If you’re a “Sherlock” fan (and/or a feminist) and haven’t read Nicole Cliffe’s brilliant rankings of the first 6 episodes, please do that now.

6 Sarah Palin Reality Shows We Would Actually Watch

What is it about Sarah Palin that TV networks just keep giving her reality shows? Serious question. The former governor of Alaska has signed up for her second reality show, this time on the Sportsman Channel (wherever that is). “Amazing America With Sarah Palin” will highlight “people, places and pasttimes” in America that make it a great country. Or something. “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” was cancelled by TLC after only one season, so I don’t have high hopes for this one. But I would watch the following reality shows starring Sarah Palin… Keep reading »
