The competition is on to create the next 30 Rock-- there are some incredibly buzz-worthy pilots in the works for fall, including an Andy Samberg cop show and a Seinfeld-esque vehicle by comedian and SNL writer John Mulaney. We're on pins and needles for both, but what's currently called The John Mulaney Show looks more impressive by the day. While it already boasts writing from one of the best comedians of the moment*, its cast will include such ... Read More
Ever since Lost went off the air a couple of years ago, we’ve been waiting for another WTF sci-fi mystery to keep us talking at the water cooler. Thankfully, BBC America’s original series Orphan Black could be just we’re looking for. The story follows Sarah (newcomer Tatiana Maslany), a delinquent foster kid who takes on the identity of Beth, a rich suicide victim who looks just like her. Sarah only plans to steal her doppelganger’s ... Read More
You'd think any dude would be thankful to get as much attention as Don Draper's penis has attracted lately, but Jon Hamm is not pleased with your discussions about his john-ham. He didn't sound happy when a reporter brought up his distracting junk in the new issue of Rolling Stone: "They're called 'privates' for a reason. I'm wearing pants, for fuck's sake. Lay off. I mean, it's not like I'm a fucking lead miner. There are harder jobs in the ... Read More
Networks have this really unfortunate habit of making it difficult to love television. So many of the best shows have a tendency to hang out on the chopping block for several seasons, and while some survive, others are taken off the air far too soon. 2013 has seen the cancellation of some really great comedies including Ben & Kate, Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, and now HBO's Enlightened. All three of these shows attracted cult followings, yet ... Read More
As any hapless nerd in a teen sex comedy would tell you, the mere possession of a condom doesn't necessarily guarantee that you're gonna get laid. Unfortunately, New York City police seem to think otherwise, as they're known to confiscate condoms as evidence of prostitution. Sex-worker advocacy program Red Umbrella Project says this is super ironic considering how easy it is to access free condoms in New York: "In a state with a major free condom program and in a ...

We were convinced the brilliant-but-cancelled Veronica Mars would never get a proper conclusion, but it looks like our favorite sleuth will return very soon. After years of deliberation, Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell are taking action to get a movie off the ground. This morning, Thomas launched a Kickstarter to raise $2 million for the project, and while that may seem like a lot of money, diehard fans have been campaigning to bring Veronica back since the show's ...

Just a couple of weeks ago I was wondering where the hell Norwegian pop princess Annie went off to, and the gods appear to have heard me. Lo and behold, her new single "Tubestops and Lonely Hearts" is supposed to come out this month. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this goddess, Annie has released two albums that contain some of this century's best dance music. One guy called her "the Kylie it's cool to like," but if you're too cool to like Kylie then I ... Read More
Several Christian institutions have notoriously severe punishments for sexual activity, but none seem quite as cruel as the case of San Diego Christian College employee Teri James. After the school discovered she was pregnant with a co-worker's child, they not only fired her, but offered her partner a job. The school claims they fired James for the act of premarital sex, but they were well aware that her now-husband Brandon James was the father when they contacted ... Read More
After this morning's news on a Republican-backed gay marriage proposition, it's nice to know conservative government can surprise us. (Congratulations on being decent human beings, guys, even if you're probably just trying to avoid the Chik-Fil-A backlash because you're intimidated by the LBGTQ movement! Here's a cookie!) Unfortunately, there are still about a million shady bills floating around Washington, and one of them is trying to repeal the Violence Against ... Read More
A woman on a bike is no big deal, right? The average female cyclist doesn't raise many hairs these days, but as we pointed out in last fall's Oct/Nov story "Riding High," this hasn't always been the case. In Victorian America, it was actually pretty taboo for women to ride, and the ensuing restrictions helped to spark the activism of the twentieth century women's rights movement. Over a century later, history is repeating itself in Afghanistan, where women are ... Read More
