Review: Bunheads

Once upon a time I danced ballet and watched a lot of Gilmore Girls. Grand jetés and Amy Sherman-Palladino were my thing. So it should come as absolutely no surprise that I loved Bunheads. FREAKING ADORED IT.

Bunheads has everything you loved from Gilmore Girls: quick-witted female characters, snappy dialogue, Kelly Bishop and an adorable small town (with no movie theater, which is a sin against society if you ask me). With that said, Bunheads is not Gilmore Girls. Continue reading

Review: I Just Want My Pants Back

Usually quick over-the-top dialogue and sex crazed young New Yorkers aren’t enough to make me hate a show — I watched and sort of enjoyed all of the first season of How to Make It In America. But in the case of MTV’s new scripted sex comedy I Just Want My Pants Back, I was left thinking, “I just want that hour of my life back.”

The Secret Circle is The CW’s new Thursday night companion to The Vampire Diaries. And rightfully so. Just like Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle is sexy, dark and filled with supernatural goodness. The characters from both series chill at a local grill, both shows have the same creators, both have a bad guy with a bad haircut (Elijah and Charles) and both shows are filmed in a moody, dreary light. But let’s focus on The Secret Circle. Continue reading

2011 VMAs: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

If you missed last night’s VMAs, you missed an… interesting show. While there were a few memorable performances, the lack of host made its mark.

I’m not sure why there wasn’t a host (please tell me if you know), but it should never be done again. Continue reading
