I think I’ve figured out why I have such a sweet spot for Chanel #5. No, it’s not because I enjoy the cheap vagina dentata jokes. Although, to be fair, who would have predicted that such an outlandish throwaway line would become a recurring joke?
I’m not one to judge people for falling under the sway of merchandising-based nostalgia (I had He-Man and the Masters of the Universe bed sheets as a kid, so I get it). However, I can’t help but feel that this renewed obsession with trying to make Star Wars the epicenter of popular culture again is in some way unhealthy.
Budgets will be slashed, regular cast members will be demoted to recurring, network-wide crossovers will happen, and hopefully the series will be allowed to appeal to a hipper, savvier audience of superhero fans as opposed to its previous demo of elderly women watching with their granddaughters.
Here comes the sine qua non of horror tropes: teenage lust. In this case, girl on girl, because that’s now a TV requirement.
Most new shows take a few episodes to really find their footing, and this episode may be where Cop Rock finally started to improve. It never becomes good, mind you, but it generally avoids anything as embarrassing as the musical numbers of the first three episodes.
This week on Once, Cinderella goes POSTAL… for a few seconds. Also this week, Hook and Emma get baby fever. Rumpel makes Belle a mix tape. And the Evil Queen comes up with a nefarious scheme… to perfect her adopted son’s bad posture.
Regardless of any personal misgivings I may have with Disney’s remake enterprise, even the worst ideas can be turned into good movies. So in the unlikely event that Jon Favreau may be reading this, here are five steps I would recommend him to take to make his Lion King roar.
If the point of these numbers is to allow us to get to know the characters in ways that mere spoken dialogue can’t provide, shouldn’t the vast majority of them have been performed by the show’s main cast?
The creepy homeless guy is henceforth referred to as “the schizophrenic”, because priests are such brilliant diagnosticians and there’s nothing offensive about referring to people by their illness because look at all those lepers in the Bible.
Join us for the first in a (hopefully) regular feature on the Agony Booth where we make snap judgments about the box office chances of upcoming movies based solely on watching the trailers, including Gone Girl on a Train, The Birth of a Nation, Jack Reacher 2, and more.
Time to check the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Demonic Disorders IV to see if lack of appetite is a symptom. It is!
It’s almost like the makers of this show were daring viewers to change the channel.
This week on Once, a sex-deprived Evil Queen hits on everyone from a newborn baby to herself. Also, the writers kill another sexy male guest star because, apparently, they hate me.
Previously on How to Get Away with Murder: Annalise opened up a pro-bono legal clinic because the university wants to keep her from teaching. You know, considering how badly she screwed up this year’s...
Our celebrity gossip team at Agony Booth has uncovered leaked emails between Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, and Jen’s new boytoy Justin Theroux on how to handle the spillover Brangelina media attention.
When the monsters inevitably show up in the end, you’ll realize that you’re not particularly invested in that long-neglected plotline and would rather Jacob keep getting into shenanigans with his new buddies than save the world.
Aaaand then a drum machine kicks in, and the dealers and bystanders all perform a rap song while the cops just smirk and shake their heads like perps breaking out into an impromptu musical number while being arrested is a totally normal thing. Such is the world of Cop Rock, producer Steven Bochco’s ill-fated 1990 attempt to fuse the police drama and musical genres.
Welcome to Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens, where killers get away with murder and not in a fun, twisty How to Get Away with Murder kind of way, but because everyone is so stupid and willfully obtuse that it makes you wonder how there’s not a Purge-type scenario happening 24/7.
