This week’s episode of OUAT was all about strong women kicking ass! WOOO!
We start in the Enchanted Forest, where we left off at the end of Season 1. Snow, Charming, Red, and company are trying to defeat King George and his army. (As a reminder: George is Charming’s not-biological father.) The guy named Leviathan is actually Lancelot from the Round Table, but we find out he has been cast off and is now working for King George. Lancelot (so ... Read More
HOLD THE PHONE. OMG. I’m really glad I decided to keep watching this season. Everything that I thought was lacking in the premiere seemed to be in the very intense second episode, so I'm a very happy fangirl.
This episode returned to all the things I love about OUAT. The seven dwarves bring it upon themselves to find out what happens beyond Storybrooke. Poor Sneezy is the one to draw the short stick, and after crossing the border, Grumpy and the ... Read More

Fall means one thing to me: New Girl is back on FOX! I’ve been waiting all summer to see what’s up with my favorite manic-pixie-nightmare-girl, Jessica Day (played by former BUST cover girl Zooey Deschanel). Turns out, she hasn't been up at all. The premiere began with Jess oversleeping, in typical Jess-blunder fashion, and subsequently running through the apartment attempting to get ready for work.
Then we had the pleasure of hearing Nick sing a ... Read More

Thank Maude Mindy Kaling is starring in a show of her own creation, just in time for Tina Fey to pass her the funny-female-writer torch as 30 Rock enters its last season. Playing a hot mess of an OB/GYN who’s obsessed with romantic comedies, Kaling’s Mindy Lahiri seems to combine a less-grating Kelly Kapoor (her character from ... Read More
What happens when you team up punk-rock legend Iggy Pop and surf-pop darling Bethany Cosentino? You get a rockin’ track that’s a little gritty, a little sweet, and utterly infectious. The forefather of punk rock and the Best Coast front woman were approached to collaborate on a song that premiered on air this past Sunday in the new episode of HBO's True Blood, and really dug the idea. Music fans may've heard the song online a week earlier, out of ... Read More

Aaron Sorkin’s newest drama is a lightning rod for criticism, much like every other HBO show as of late. Girls was problematic to some for its depiction of privileged, young white people and lack of diversity. Luck was prematurely canceled after three horse’s deaths occurred during filming. While Girls was condemned for its representation of men (Jessa’s jerk husband Thomas-John, pushover Charlie, oddball ... Read More

As with Jordan Catalano’s group, "The Frozen Embryos" on the 90s TV show, My So-Called Life, band names don’t necessarily have to make sense. Especially when you’re a teenager-- they’re just another way to express bottled-up angst.
Although I could stare at pictures of early Mick Jagger all day, I'm less excited by band members than by the bands' names themselves. I just love coming up with names for fictional bands that will likely ... Read More

Have you ever read Retromania by Simon Reynolds? It’s this book that traces our society’s fixation on the past, and the concept of "retro." Sometimes, when I’m feeling really deep, I’ll ponder some of these questions for myself. Mostly, I wonder if holding onto nostalgia can ever truly be inhibiting like everybody makes it out to be.
Although I wasn't alive in the 60s, I have an intense emotional attachment to British Invasion ... Read More

Just in case Zooey Deschanel's presence on your TV screen on Fox's fall hit New Girl, iPhone Siri commercial, or SNL as a host was not enough adorkability for you, her face now may be on a bus in a city near you.Today the New Girl Facebook page announced the "True American" bus tour, which will kick off labor day weekend in Boston and move on to New York. The tour's name clearly comes from the show's infamous patriotic drinking game, to which the rules are still ... Read More

The cast of Girls seems to be everywhere these days in print, but now you can take them everywhere with you in prints. Different prints, actually, thanks to Kevin Hilton at Vulture.The brilliance of this kind of Girls print-job is that it is in doll form. Each of the four cast members now has their own paper doll, complete with different outfits and accessories. If you've been watching the season, you'll be pleased to see that the intricacies of each character's ... Read More
