Satan himself is coming to FOX… yeah, yeah, you’re making a Rupert Murdoch joke in your head, we know. But no, this Devil is getting his own hour-long dramedy, and you better believe the Christian Right is raising hell.
As people congratulated Caitlyn Jenner on her transition, several voices rose above the throng to prove that yes, being an asshole is still possible in the world. Especially on Facebook and Twitter.
“A post-apocalyptic version of (let’s face it) the Wacky Racers doesn’t feel like something that people have any kind of racial hang-ups about, so why would people mind if a woman took over?”
The zombies are coming! Zombies warriors! Zombie babies! Zombie moms! Soooo many zombies! Oh, and Tyrion finally gets to meet Dany on the other side of the world. But mostly zombies.
A Briefcase Full of Humilation (And Cash)
Mark your calendars, Netflix subscribers and people who have their friends’ Netflix login information and passwords memorized! June 12 is fast approaching. And with it comes our long-awaited reunion with plucky, pretty, erstwhile drug runner Piper Chapman and her diverse gaggle of felonious female pals.
In week three, Ethan’s wife and kid find themselves sucked into Wayward Pines, but Ethan doesn’t bother to tell them anything that might keep them from getting killed. Shockingly, that plan backfires on him. Before it’s all over, someone is dead and a perfectly good escape attempt is ruined.
“Legends And Lies”… Could there be a more perfect name for a FOX News show? I’d never heard of it before now. Sadly, it’s not about Ronald Reagan banging Gorbachev’s wife so hard that the Iron Curtain fell down, but about the Old West.
The Bachelorette fakes gay romance because, like, two dudes in love? How ridiculous would that be, right? It’s not like that’s a real thing or something.
“It’s great to see at least some aspects of the Superman mythos onscreen not weighted down by angst or failed attempts at achieving Christopher Nolan and/or Frank Miller levels of grimness.”
On Week 2 of The Bachelorette, the competition turns violent. Several of the guys come to blows over Kaitlyn until one sends another to the hospital. Then, the men try their hand at standup comedy. We’ll let you decide which is worse.
Sex And the City 2 pretty much killed the franchise dead, and Carrie Bradshaw was condemned to the Fourth Circle of Hell, i.e., high school, for all eternity. Okay, it was just two seasons, but it felt like an eternity. Oh, who am I kidding–I LOVED IT.
“It’s like someone saw Ted and decided what it was really missing was a ton of fart and shit jokes.”
Episode Six is waaaaaaay too late for a network show to finally get good, but Allegiance does just that, pretty much immediately after NBC cancelled it. Fortunately, the whole thing is now available on Hulu. Should you watch it? Yes… and here’s why.
“Bay simply ramps up the pace and explosion count from prior entries and layers on the Dinobots like so much icing on a shit cake.”
This week, Game of Thrones featured many of the good citizens of Westeros attempting to obtain pardons for their sins (and the sins of others) with highly variable rates of success, ranging from Jorah’s violent but hopeless attempt to win back Dany to Gilly’s much appreciated thank you roll in the hay with Sam.
In the second episode of Wayward Pines, Ethan and Beverly fail to escape, but at least they get an awkward and inexplicable dinner invitation out of it. Also, you’ll be totally shocked to learn the sheriff is a bad guy.
What the Hell Is There to Watch This Summer?
When Josh Duggar was a 14-year-old boy, he inappropriately touched several younger girls. What is a humor site like this supposed to do with revelations like that?
“Even people who otherwise have issues with the feminist movement pretty much universally agree that this is a freakin’ brilliant action movie and you should see it and see it again.”
