Here Are The Top 5 ‘YesPlease, MoreThankYou’ Moments From ‘Scandal’: ‘An Innocent Man’

(Season 4, Episode 6)

So I’m in the middle of writing an article about a show I’m calling the “Most Important New Show of 2014,” because I found Amazon’s Transparent to be an absolutely amazing series. One small thing I’m writing about is the significance of water in the show—how it represents both tragedy (i.e. drowning) and sexuality (i.e. “sploosh”). For that reason, I was so into last night’s Scandal—that opening scene with Olivia swimming/fucking/Daddy issue-ing all over the place reminded me of how brilliant the writing can be sometimes (gave me all sorts of eros/thanatos vibes—always a good thing).

Here Are The Top 5 ‘YesPlease, MoreThankYou’ Moments From ‘Scandal’: ‘The Key’

Season 4, Episode 5

Okay, I am such a Buffy stan, I don’t like any references to The Key unless we’re talking Michelle Trachtenberg/Dawn, but okay. Last night’s Scandal episode was titled The Key, and it had nothing to do with Buffy, but it was still pretty good. We have some big, bad stuff officially happening on the ABC series—stuff that won’t get resolved in a single episode and I’m thrilled. Also, I feel PRETYY EFFING GOOD about my decision to remain on Team Jake, because OMGeeee. He is a gangstaaaaa! Click inside for more!!!

Here Are The Top 5 ‘YesPlease, MoreThankYou’ Moments From ‘Scandal’: ‘Like Father, Like Daughter’

Season 4, Episode 4

I have been struggling a bit with my Scandal fandom over the last few weeks, but I really loved last night’s episode, “Like Father, Like Daughter.” We had an ah-mazingly exciting case for Olivia Pope & Associates, the drama that was Olivia finding herself back in the White House, and a very dark situation for those of firmly planted on Team Jake. Even though I don’t like what happened to our boo last night, I actually think it will help drive the season, and now that Jake is n trouble, I also think it might drive a wedge betwixt Liv and Fitz. So, ha! There! Yeah, no. I have issues. But not quite as many issues as Karen Grant who took her grief and really… um… made interesting choices therein (actually, I can totally relate… sort of… mmh, I’ve said too much).

Watch: Here Is Video Of Sarah Paulson Performing ‘Criminal’ On ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’

Headsliner
Bette & Dot have been a Bad, Bad Girl

Last week on the season premiere episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, actress Jessica Lange delivered a stellar musical performance of the David Bowie song Life On Mars? Last night, co-star Sarah Paulson — who plays the two-headed characters of Bette and Dot on AHS this season — delivered a very entertaining musical performance of her own of Fiona Apple‘s song Criminal (complete with ’90s era mosh pit scene). It appears that AHS will this season feature musical performances of modern songs set in the show’s 1950s time period (a gimmick that I am loving, so far). Firstly, click the embed above to watch (or re-watch) Paulson‘s performance of Criminal on Freak Show last night … then, let’s head below and talk about the rest of last night’s episode of AHS titled Massacres and Matinees.

OMG Did You Watch … ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 5 Premiere: ‘No Sanctuary’

Season 5, Episode 1

Last night, the AMC series The Walking Dead returned with its season 5 premiere episode and it was so damn good that I am compelled to offer up a recap post so that WE can talk about the episode in detail. The Walking Dead as a series has had its ups and downs over the years and I almost gave up watching the show around season 3. Thankfully, things picked up and season 4 was probably the best season of the series thus far. Which brings us to last night’s season 5 premiere episode which I believe, hands down, was the best episode of The Walking Dead that has ever aired. Click below to discuss last night’s episode, No Sanctuary, and beware that this is your SPOILER ALERT WARNING. More »

Last Night’s ‘The Good Wife’ Made Me Want To Break Up With ‘Scandal’

Let's discuss the greatest show/televised feminist movement on Earth

This season of The Good Wife has been incredible, but last night’s episode, “Oppo Research” was full of so much slayage, I felt like I never wanted to watch another television drama. Including Scandal. I’m sorry, I’m NOT sorry. The real, true excitement I felt last night was something I haven’t felt in so long/maybe ever. Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) has been toying with the idea of running for State’s Attorney, but last night ish got real. And I need to talk about it! Obviously, I am about to drop HELLA, HELLA SPOILERS, so if you watched the episode, click inside for more!

Here Are The Top 5 ‘YesPlease, MoreThankYou’ Moments From ‘Scandal’: ‘Randy, Red, Superfreak and Julia’

Season Four, Episode One

It feels good to be back in the arms of Shonda Rhimes, am I right? Last night Shondaland Thursdays kicked off, and I had a blast. I hadn’t thought much about how this Season Four premiere for Scandal would go, but I was pleasantly surprised by some things… aaand disappointed by others. I’ve always loved this show, but I find myself getting more and more critical with each season. But I critique out of love! I hope you guys have had a chance to watch it, and I can’t wait to recap with you all. Click inside for more!

Watch: Ramona Singer Refuses To Answer Questions About Her Husband’s Alleged Cheating On ‘The Real Housewives Of New York City’ Reunion Pt. 2

"Karma is a bitch"
"I don't want to take this discussion any further"

Last night Bravo aired part 2 of this season’s reunion special for The Real Housewives of New York City and as you can see in the video clip above, longtime castmember Ramona Singer refused to talk specifics regarding rumors that her husband Mario Singer cheated on her. Because Ramona and Mario chose to showcase their life together on reality TV, host Andy Cohen felt it was appropriate to ask Ramona to comment on the state of her marriage. She vehemently refused to do so. Thankfully, Cohen stood his ground and kept pressing her for answers — as he should as moderator of these reunion specials. As you can see in the video embedded above, Ramona was happy to stonewall and give no insight as to where she stands on her marriage (even tho she did say, “I have a daughter” — and that’s about it. In Touch Weekly magazine is reporting this week that Ramona‘s husband is still cheating on her and they provide what they claim is photographic proof below. More »
