Homeland's Carrie Mathison   TIME’s Eliana Dockterman has something to say about the seemingly empowered and independent female television characters in her essay “TV’s Strongest Female Characters Share One Stupid Flaw.”    While applauding the increased presence of female “DC fixers, CIA operatives, [and] revenge-seeking killers” in shows like Scandal, Homeland, and Revenge, Dockterman sees a pattern: each of the ...

Guys, I’m crying rainbows. I don’t think you understand how much this new spinoff means to me. Ja’mie King, the teen queen with a stank-ass attitude from Summer Heights High, is getting her own television show. This news is so perfect, I could scream from excitement.  Ja’mie’s character is crass, and she's the ultimate stereotype of a “popular, mean girl.” Her new mockumentary style show, Ja’mie: Private School ...

My personal fave teen drama, Pretty Little Liars   At the ten year anniversary mark, my fiance and I recently marathon-viewed the first season to teen soap The O.C. I love the show, but as adults looking back on the teen characters, seeing how sexualized they are, we felt a tad uncomfortable. Some of the scenes are refreshing explorations of teen sexuality, wherein both women and men embrace desire, lust, and love. But some just weren’t, like the shots ... Read More
Everyone has been talking about 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai and her outspoken advocacy of women and education (we certainly have been). Tuesday night, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize nominee went on television to speak on one of America’s greatest and prestigious stages—that’s right, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. And so commenced the first time I’ve wept while watching Comedy Central (aside from whenever I watch 50 First Dates). Being in ... Read More
  The bride: MailLien Le. The groom: Mike Cassesso. The date: Saturday, October 5th. The place to be was the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC... or so everyone thought until the government shutdown prohibited use of national monuments and parks.  The couple thought their wedding was an impossibility, but they had a tremendous surprise in store. Stephen Colbert, always the romantic, saved the day. Seeing the blushing pair in despair, the comic host ... Read More
Get ready to let the awwww’s flow because this tiny human is truly adorable! Last Friday, October 4th, dance teacher Tianne King and her daughter Heaven (such an appropriate name!) showcased their dance moves on The Ellen Show. The two became internet-famous back in May of this year when Tianne uploaded to YouTube a video of the duo dancing to Beyoncé’s “End of Time.” Here’s the original video of the two:At the time of ...

The New Republic’s Laura Bennett has something important to say about Betty White’s recent roles in her essay “Betty White Is Not a Sex Machine: Our Cruel Obsession with Dirty Old Women.” While she acknowledges that elderly women in the media have gained traction, ceasing to be mostly “sexless [...] prudish nags,” she sees an increase in sexual exploitation of older women. From Betty White’s role in Hot in Cleveland to ... Read More
Mindy Kaling might well be a comedic genius; her lighthearted, girlish humor resonates with profound insights into modern womanhood. She plays characters that are lovable and ambitious, flawed, and fallible. Her comedy is real and honest.  In her recent interview with Parade, Mindy is just as candid. She eloquently addresses the struggles she faces as a premiere figure in comedy, confessing that as an Indian woman in television, she gets treated differently. ... Read More
From papyrus sales posters in ancient Egypt to town criers of the Middle Ages, from radio sponsorships to the Pop-Tarts “Crazy Good” campaign, advertising has grown and changed over the years, constantly adapting with methods to reach target audiences. This evolution has brought us to the category of advertisement web-shows. I have just spent the last hour watching “Romancing the Joan,” sponsored by Renuzit air fresheners and I feel like ...

Ok, not gonna lie, but when I first heard that Lizzy Caplan was going to be in a show about sex, I squealed. I mean, her sex scenes in season one of True Blood made me utterly jealous, mainly because she was up close and personal with Ryan Kwanten. But a recent Vulture interview with Caplan helped me understand her new show, Masters of Sex, a bit further. Masters of Sex, which premiered last night on Showtime at 10PM EST, centers on the highly revolutionizing ... Read More
