There are a few reasons that The Mindy Project is better than New Girl this season and ‘Christmas Party Sex Trap’ is one of them. Great writing, sharp delivery, sexual tension; and best of all, it all feels fresh and new and exciting.
The episode starts out with a great line from Mindy: “Christmastime in New York City… snow on the ground, lights in the trees, and so many tourists that it’s nearly impossible to return a bra to a department store.”
Then this happens:
The entire opening was brilliant.… Read more →
I know that I am quite late with this update. I even contemplated forgoing it entirely, but I definitely wanted to write something about this episode of Lost Girl, because I think it’s one of the strongest of the series’ run.
For the first three episodes of this season, I wanted all of the characters back together in their normal dynamic.… Read more →
You’ve seen the trailer, and you’ve most likely been dreading taking your little ones to this movie during the holiday weekend. But in truth, there is nothing to dread. Frozen is a nod to Disney classics while subverting expectations; it’s surprising and, of course, it will warm your heart.
Kristen Bell recently had an interview on The Tonight Show where she said she always wanted to play a Disney princess, but not a dainty one.… Read more →
Welcome back, Bo. We’ve missed you! Anna Silk’s bigger presence in this episode just confirmed what I believe most of us felt during the past couple of episodes: We need Bo. Yes, the supporting characters are great, but ultimately this is Bo’s show — and I’m certainly glad that she’s back. I’ll still venture to say that during the premiere, it wasn’t so dire because of its whacky premise.… Read more →
It’s been a month since I reviewed The Michael J. Fox Show, so I figured I would look at it with fresh eyes. While reviewing the show is no longer the bane of my existence, I didn’t come out of The Michael J. Fox Show’s Thanksgiving episode finding it remotely interesting.
Is it possible to write a Thanksgiving episode without tired old television clichés?… Read more →
This week, in part two of the season finale, we were supposed to find out which of the three finalists has already been taken out of the running for the grand prize. We know Jourdan has to be safe, because there has to be a guy and a girl in the final two, and Tyra announces that her competitor is Marvin. It’s disappointing because Corey is different and awesome and obviously the best person, but it is unsurprising. Marvin is conventional and a typical male model, so of course he has a lot of fans. Corey still gets to walk in the fashion show, but he is pretty broken up about his elimination, so he really has to push through for some fierceness.… Read more →
The season four premiere of Lost Girl made the case for a show headlined by Ksenia Solo — and it exceeded expectations. Due to a real life pregnancy, Anna Silk had to sit out of the major duties for the premiere (and perhaps the next episode, too), and while Bo was greatly missed, I can’t lie and say that I wasn’t at all entertained by this episode.… Read more →
If you remember, last week the competition was narrowed down to our final three: Jordyn, Marvin, and Corey. It’s interesting because these finalists each represent a different type: the female model, the traditional male model, and the androgynous male model. Tyra sure knows what she’s doing, doesn’t she?… Read more →
Let us all bask in the glory that was the best episode of The Vampire Diaries in a very long while! Am I delusional or was that just some very good stuff? I’m beyond the mythology, though sometimes with how wonky it is, it can be plain fun in its own right. It’s not that I’m saying this episode was specifically compelling, but for some odd reason I just relished in it.… Read more →
After last week’s double elimination, the top 5 is noticeably on edge. Jordyn is upset that Nina got sent home, so she decides to share her Tyra Suite winnings with Corey, who was also close with Nina. Those two, along with Renee, call out Chris for being fake and dragging Nina down. Renee goes so far as to claim there is a special place in hell for him. An argument ensues, and Chris just explodes while Renee and Jordyn laugh and Corey just gives him some piercing smize eyes. Boy is fabulous and just can’t control it, even in a fight. Chris tries to run to Marvin for support, but really we’re all sick of his schtick at this point.… Read more →
