‘Mad Men’ recap: Welcome to 1965

“Mad Men,” Season 4, Episode 3: “The Good News” This week’s “Mad Men” opens in a very happy place. No, it’s not Acapulco. Or Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. It’s Joan’s vagina. She’s at her gynecologist. It seems Joan and her rapist, I mean husband, are trying to start a family. But like many busty secretaries […]

‘Mad Men’ season premier review: Everything old is new

The new season of “Mad Men” premiered last night and I was very disappointed. I seriously felt like I was watching some mid-season show about a bunch of people I don’t know. Last season left of with the newly-formed Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. They were running their ad agency out of a hotel room. Don […]

KA-BOOM! More MacGruber! (Pictures!)

I can’t decide how I feel about Saturday Night Live‘s movie version of Macgruber that is coming out May 21st. While I am a mullet lover through and through, I have a difficult time figuring out how they can make these short (but awesome!) SNL skits into a full length feature film. The thing is, […]

The holidays are upon us. It’s almost time to eat too much and then retreat to a private corner before Uncle Gus again starts asking why you don’t have a girlfriend.

‘Dexter’ review: John Lithgow steals the show

The highly-anticipated “Dexter” season premiere did not disappoint. From the skillful faux post-fatherhood opening to the nail-biting ending, the fourth season of “Dexter” is sure to be one of the best.

‘SNL’ new girl drops the F-bomb

One of  “Saturday Night Live‘s” newest featured players Jenny Slate slipped up and said the F-word in her first starring skit. Needless to say, she is my new hero. The comic was playing Dawn, the host of a biker chick talk show. The skit featured the word “freaking” a lot so her slip was understandable. […]

REVIEW: ‘True Blood’ season finale a true bore

I love “True Blood.” And I’ve loved this season of “True Blood.” There was never a dull moment. Until the season finale Sunday night. The episode started with the ritual/orgy where Maryann (Michelle Forbes) was about to offer up shapeshifter Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) to the God who comes. Bill (Stephen Moyer) saves the day […]
