Here’s a music video that’s also a commercial for Gossip Girl Acapulco

I promised that I would keep you up to date to the Greatest Spanish-Language Adapted Show Of Our Time Gossip Girl Acapulco, and here’s my word. Above is a music video by Paty Cantú titled “Dicen Por Ahí” (or #dicenporahi, as they really want you to tweet it out), which literally translates to “they are saying around there,” but more accurately is probably “rumor has it.”

If you don’t speak Spanish, the song is basically saying: “Rumor has it… rumor has it.

emmys-2013

The Emmy window is now officially closed, which basically means that we’re free to begin dreaming about who we want to be nominated in a few week’s time. Honestly, most of these people probably will not be officially recognized for their hard work and dedication to the craft, but they should be – at least in our humble opinion.

NBC renews Hannibal for season 2

Hannibal - Season 1

Just had to share the deliciously good news that NBC has done the weird and right thing: it has renewed Hannibal for a second season. Hannibal premiered at modest ratings, and has since seen lower ratings, but is one of the network’s most critically-acclaimed series currently on the air. There were talks that cable networks were interested in picking it up if NBC had decided to pass.

Imagine joining Lost Girl, a seductive Supernatural series in its third season which already has a settled and extremely vocal fan base, are you picturing it? Fists flying, people crying over their favorites not getting enough screen time because of the newbie, the madness… the horror! Well, it seems we’ve kept the brawls down to a minimum this season and we’re not entirely sure how she did it (I personally think she used some of that Fae juju on us), but the fact remains, that when Rachel Skarsten strolled onto the scene she managed to not only piss off the majority of the loyal Lost Girl fans, but make them love her as well.

Mad Men ‘The Better Half’ recap: Twinsies

mad men better half

After last week’s feverish, drug-induced romp through the office, Mad Men comes off a lot more restrained this episode, even as dramatic moments such as Abe getting stabbed twice (!) and Don and Betty’s one night stand keep unfolding.

“The Better Half” is rife with references to twins. Megan’s twin characters are “two halves of the same person and they want the same thing but they’re trying to get it in different ways.” Of course, the description is really in reference to Don and Ted, who cannot agree on how to approach the margarine account.

Take a moment to reread that title and compose yourself. As Hollywookiee.com reports, Dan Harmon let it slip during a Harmontown podcast that NBC has invited him to return to the show. No word yet on if he’s accepted the offer, but he did joke that he’d only come back if Chevy Chase did the same.

Hannibal ‘Apéritif’ review: L’élégance

An interesting beginning for the new embodiment of Hannibal Lecter

487374_530707196952055_235035369_n

Hannibal is a show of incredible elegance. That is, at least, the sensation one gets from seeing the first episode, “Apéritif.” Quite a feat, considering the show gets its name from a cannibal. But Hannibal is a man of taste, even if his actions may lead one to think otherwise.

This episode presents us with a variety of characters, the good cop Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), the psychologist Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas, from Wonderfalls) and the main leads, weird cop Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and psychiatrist with a secret Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen).

The root of guilt in Guilty Pleasures

When not being able to tell people we watch a certain series, because it would say something unbecoming about ourselves, reveals problems in our society

New York, I Love You XOXO

Creator and executive producer of both Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy Shonda Rhimes said recently in a Salon interview that calling a series a guilty pleasure is like calling it “a piece of crap.” She was insulted that anyone would actually reference their watching of Scandal with such a phrase. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I understand where she’s coming from.
