2013 was a year of satirizing those who yearned for fame and fortune

Or, On Miley Cyrus and her summer anthem "We Can't Stop"


It’s the end of 2013. And naturally, this is the time when we all reflect on the past 12 months of our lives — where did it go wrong? where did it go right? what were the big events of the year? And I don’t know why I woke up this morning thinking about this, but one of the biggest events of 2013 is Miley Cyrus.

What did you get for Christmas?

Ah, the day after Christmas. That holiday spirit is reaching a plateau in the most pleasant way possible. You’re a day removed from the high of playing with your gifts. So my question is, did you get anything TV related under the tree?

About ten years ago, what I would have gotten for Christmas was another season of Friends on DVD, and a friend or two would gift some other show — Reba or Family Guy.

Lost Girl ‘La Fae Époque’ review: Dress-up


“Well, I think we’re all done waiting… ’cause here I come.”

One can only hope so, Bo. When this episode first began, I was kind of dreading it. If there’s one thing you should know about me as a television viewer is that I kind of hate flashback episodes. They’re distracting, often boring, and most times don’t really give us much information about what is going on presently.

PSA: If you’re watching Chuck on Netflix, make sure to watch episodes in correct order

Screen Shot 2013-12-18 at 6.22.31 PM

If you’ve never watched Chuck and you have Netflix: congratulations, you have the ability to watch one of television’s fine, little-known series — and my absolute favorite show of all time.

However, if you’re watching for the first time, you might not know that two season two episodes aired out of order.

Lost Girl ‘Of All the Gin Joints’ review: Till the bird lady sings

lost girl 406

I don’t think there’s been any scene more blunt than Dyson and Bo having sex, Dyson pleading for Bo to give him the intimacy that he desires so, and her denying him that for her personal pleasure. If you’ve been wondering whether or not Bo has changed, this was the writers’ way of telling you that she has.

Revenge ‘Exodus’ review: Plans going overboard


The main problem with Revenge‘s midseason finale is that it took forever to get to that certain plot point. You know, the one they’ve been teasing since the premiere. And then again in all the promos since ever. In fact, I’d be surprised if we got more than 60 seconds past Emily getting shot of new footage to hold on to.

It’s safe to watch Revenge again, everyone

After a disappointing second season, "Revenge" has regained its bearings.


The midseason finale of Revenge airs tomorrow night, and it will most likely be met with middling ratings. After a convoluted second season (paired with a move to a different night), audiences jumped ship on the frothy drama. No one can blame audiences for abandoning what was once a fun summer-in-fall soap turned complicated mess.

Saving Mr. Banks review: Two movies in one, and one ain’t bad


It’s difficult to watch a film that’s sure to be on plenty of people’s — if not everyone’s — best-of list for 2013, perhaps a shoo-in for the Academy Awards next year, too, and just think well that was fine. In reality, author of Mary Poppins P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) was a stubborn and snobby person who thought (perhaps rightfully so) that her story was much darker than what Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) and Co.
