The critically-acclaimed, award winning television series began to release its final episodes earlier this month, and it has yet to disappoint. If you’re familiar with Breaking Bad, then you might know about some of the fan reactions to show’s lead female character, Skyler White (played by actress Anna Gunn).
Anna Gunn recently wrote an Op-Ed ... Read More
Remember when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globes? Let me jog your memory: it felt kind of like it did when the cool, older kids let you hang out with them after school. The duo was laugh-out-loud hilarious and totally down to earth. They turned the long, potentially boring award show into a night of spicy jokes and tomfoolery.
The bad news: they indicated that they didn't plan on a repeat performance. NBC, thankfully, is ... Read More

Castles tend to stand the tests of time. The visually arresting corridors of Downton Abbey, known in the real world as Highclere Castle, have experienced and seen a lot, but when it comes to dogs (and mud), it's apparently a different story. After a “ruckus” on set, Lady Carnavon, owner of the castle, ordered a ban on all cast members’ dogs. Several canines were getting a little too rowdy, romping and rolling through the set, dragging mud and chewing rugs ... Read More

Trigger Warning: This post mentions sexual abuse within the prison system.
Spoiler Alert! If you're not caught up with the whole season, avert your eyes!
It’s safe to say that Netflix's Orange is The New Black has taken over my life. It’s okay; the first step is always admitting you have a problem, and I’m an OITNB addict. I’m at the point of wanting to read the real Piper Chapman’s (who’s actually Piper Kerman IRL) actual ... Read More

This HYSTERICAL CollegeHumor video addresses that “dumb double standard” in the TV industry that’s got so many ladies’ feathers ruffled. No, not the pay grade one … or the leading actress/actor ratio one… or the one where “30 Rock” isn’t on the air anymore. (Not quite a double standard but an issue I, as a woman, have.)
These female comedians have “a boner to pick” with HBO … for not giving us the D.
It’s true! For every time we ... Read More
