I Wasn’t “Counting On” Loving This Duggar Spinoff But, Well, Here We Are

Before you click through, rolling your eyes and scoffing Meghan, come on, what are you thinking?, you should hear me out on this one. And know, too, that I have always found 19 Kids and Counting extremely difficult to watch.   The hallmarks of 19KaC didn’t make for very good entertainment, so I thought. Once the[…]

The Dangerous Dance of Avoiding Spoilers

Netflix. Hulu. Amazon Prime. If the late, surprise winter has caught you in a streaming mood, you’re probably looking to get lost in a new television series on one of these platforms. Starting a new relationship with a television show is also fraught with peril, as you now must actively[…]

Alternate Bachelor Realities

It’s like The Bachelor, but it takes place inside an IKEA. It’s like The Bachelor, but with even more than three token non-white minority contestants. It’s like The Bachelor, but it’s about picking the perfect houseplant. It’s like The Bachelor, but with fluid sexuality and gender identities. It’s like The[…]

Currently… in March 2017

FEELING:  Excited and inspired. I’ve been working for the past …well, a little over a week… nonstop at the studio I was working at a few months ago. I love love love it. It’s so much fun helping out, and every day I get asked to do something that scares me: power[…]

Nobody’s Having Fun On The Bachelor 21.6 — Not Even In “Paradise.”

Theory: Nick doesn’t want LOVE. He wants MISERY. That’s the only thing that could possibly explain his actions in this episode. But it makes a lot of sense if you consider his actions on Bachelor in Paradise! There, after one date with Amanda, Nick decided that they belonged together. Which would’ve been awesome, had[…]

Currently… in February 2017

FEELING:  Hmmmm where do I begin? So, my temporary period of employment has ended, which means back to square one. Since the Inauguration, I’ve been protesting every weekend. It’s hard to think about my own personal future when the future of the world feels closer to crisis than ever before.[…]

The Bachelor 21.4 aka “Corinntervention” aka WHAT IS ‘REAL’?!?

Why is this show so LONG and so BORING? I don’t remember Ben’s season being this boring. I don’t remember Jojo’s season being this boring. Maybe it’s just harder to care about The Bachelor when the whole world is literally on fire. Anyway. This was the drama-filled, having-it-out, ‘if-Corinne-gets-a-rose-I’m-leaving’ episode we were[…]

The Least Normal Dates I’ve Ever Had In My Life

So the other day I was watching The Bachelor (like you do) and after I recovered from Raven giggling about assaulting her ex-boyfriend (hold on, I promise I’m going somewhere with this, but OMG wtf that was the most horrifying thing I’ve ever seen on The Bachelor), Raven raved to the cameras about what a great date[…]

Good News! This Week Is Over!… Good News!

Can we somehow reach the Barenaked Ladies for comment on this past week? Because I would hope they’d say something along the lines of “Wow, that’s a lot of stuff to have happen in a week.” or something.   Hi! I’m back again with some good news, and let’s kick[…]

GOOD NEWS

Hello hello hello and welcome to the first (slightly belated) GOOD NEWS of 2017! We’re merrily dancing on the razor’s edge of mutually assured destruction –– but because the human brain can only handle so much fear before it implodes, I’m focusing on only the things that make me happy,[…]

2016 Year in Review

Buckle up, Buttercup! It’s the annual massive “best posts of the year” post! I’ve done it in 2012, 2013, 2014, and dang if it didn’t take me 1 2 3 4 tries but I did it in 2015, too. We’ve got 12 months to cover and a total of 165[…]

Netflix Recommendations, via Venn Diagram

With the plethora of new shows on Netflix, it can be daunting to pick a series you’ve never heard of, and commit to watching all 6-8 episodes of a show. How do you know you’re going to like it? That’s where I come in. I am a connoisseur of television. That’s[…]

Not yr “Bubble”

I wanted to be “over it,” but I’m not “over it.” As much as it pains me to accept the comparison, I — much like the Pubescent-Elect — am upset over an SNL skit. First, you have to watch the video. Watch it aaaaaaaall the way to the end. That last[…]

What I’m Thankful For:

  this corner of the sofa. You’re great. Never change, baby.   Worst Cooks in America on Netflix — thanks for reminding me of a time before terror.   Clue for iPhone. Thanks for making sense of my body. I feel more in control and less adrift when it comes to my[…]

When Reality Is Harder To Watch Than Reality TV

Remember back when we cared about things like Kardashians and who was going to win The Bachelorette? You know, before the Nazis silently took over our country and we were all murmuring to each other in disbelief: “how much worse can it get?” Life after 11/9 has been one long inhale that I’m still[…]
