According to Renata Sellitti of Thrillist, girls hate "Game of Thrones." Her reasoning is as follows: there's too much female nudity, the incest thing...
Haven't we long since come to terms with the fact that women can wear short skirts and red lipstick, love fashion and champion women's rights? That describing a woman as smart and sexy is not, in fact, an oxymoron?
Attention "Mad Men" fans: It's time to leave Betty (Draper) Francis' body alone. Last night "Mad Men" returned -- and along with Don's cheating ways, Megan's excellent sartorial choices and Peggy's badass lady boss demeanor, we were subjected to a deluge of fat-shaming comments about Betty.
From the very first "Housewives of Orange County" show, I was hooked. As the years went on and the new versions started popping up in the different cities, I became obsessed. What was this magnetism that had a hold on my appetite for entertainment?
It goes like this: a female character judges the male protagonist's bad behavior in a completely rational way, and the audience hates her for it.
Emma: At the end of last episode, we saw all of the girls sort of hit rock bottom -- this episode, we got at least a bit of resolution.
It's been a long journey, filled with roses, meltdowns and excessive shirtlessness, but last night Sean Lowe's search for a fiancee on national television came to an oh-so-sweet end.
Lori: Hi everyone. OK, so whoa, I am still kind of stunned by this episode.
This week on "The Bachelor," the women told
all some, Sean Lowe sported a new haircut and Chris Harrison ran the show. This was truly Chris' time to shine -- especially when he takes an informal poll of how the audience feels about #ShirtlessSean.
The girls of The Carrie Diaries are loyalists to each other even as they struggle with their own sense of burgeoning identity and the choices (and consequences) that arise as they grapple with the awareness of their feminine power.
It's (no-sex) fantasy suite time and Sean was all about the pensive boat-staring in Thailand -- yet another "most beautiful place in the world." ("Bachelor" pro tip: Sad-face staring = hard decision.)
Why am I spending another night of my week watching this? Why is ABC punishing me by airing this? What "all" could Sean possibly have to tell? Why is Sean so fully clothed?
From the first minute of this week's "Bachelor," we dive right into Sean's hometown dates.
Fresh off of his Canadian confidence, Sean "breaks the rules" and flies with his remaining six ladies to St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
"I love Canada," says Sean, when we first see him staring into the distant wild at Banff National Park. And as Chris Harrison helpfully informs us (and the ladies) it's "one of the most beautiful, most romantic places in the Canadian Rockies"! Oh boy!
Ladies and gentlemen, this is not a drill. I repeat, this is not a drill. Sean Lowe did not appear shirtless once throughout the entirety of episode 5. "Bachelor"... I thought I knew you.
