The Foster: Season 4

May 22, 2017

The Fosters continues its reign as Queen and Queen of family drama. That’s Queen Stef and Queen Lena, partners in love and life to five teenaged children – biological and adopted. Season 4 of this Freeform drama continues the chaotic lives of the Adams-Fosters family. I joked in a previous post that the show isn’t really performing unless at least three of the kids are having simultaneous disasters. But honestly, that’s the way it’s felt this season. And not in a stupid way. In a realistic way of what a household might be like with five hormonal teenagers. There are certainly moments I thank the Universe I never procreated and watching this show is one of them. Fun escapist drama as long as I don’t have to clean up their mess. Luckily they have two great Moms to do most of the cleaning up. Bravo to this beautiful and loving show for paving the way as it has for the past four seasons. Looking forward to Season Five premiering this summer on. 4 out of 5.

Of course any season with an appearance of Brandon Quinn as the twins biological Dad Gabe is always welcome, especially if he’s shirtless.

Here’s What Happened When I Did All The Verbs From The L Word Theme Song In One Day (Autostraddle)

April 8, 2017

Kayla from Autostraddle decided to copy down all the verbs from The L Word theme song, The Way That We Live by Betty and act them out. Laughing out loud ensues. For fans of The L Word and lovers of obsessed people everywhere,

I have been trying to master the fast part of “The Way That We Live” by Betty, the theme song for The L Word, for the better part of a decade. That rambling list of gerunds is deceptively hard to recite, especially under the pressure that sets in when you triumphantly declare at a party that you can totally recite all the words to The L Word theme song and everyone expects a demonstration.

After many a night practicing, and my girlfriend waking me up to inform me that I was singing it in my sleep again, the rowdy earworm started to sound more and more like an incantation or a prayer. The more I heard those words play over and over in my head, the more I wondered if within that daringly simple hook, Betty had encoded a certain doctrine. Could The L Word’s theme song outline a righteous path toward a fulfilling life?

With the conviction of Jenny Schecter writing about manatees, I embarked on a journalistic and spiritual journey to unlock life’s secrets with the help of Betty’s lyrical key. I decided to do all of the verbs described at the end of The L Word’s in just one day. The results may shock you.

Listen to Betty’s The Way That We Live, the theme song for The L Word.

18 Times Pam From “True Blood” Was The Vampire Queen Of Sass (Next of Ken)

April 7, 2017

Are you aching for perfect one-liners from True Blood‘s Queen of Couture, Pamela Swynford De Beaufort? Me too. Producer Next of Ken brings us the best of Pam’s sassy comebacks. Be forewarned (NSFW), they get racier as you get closer to #1. As much as I adore Pam’s potty mouth – I do love a sexy woman swearing and a sexy lesbian even more delicious, I have to admit my favorite is #5 which is all PG, but still manages to sting like no one else living or dead. #teampam

Check out all 18 on YouTube.

Home Fires: Season 2

March 28, 2017

I love the British period drama Home Fires. I don’t hear many people talking about it. I think it’s one of the best series produced recently. That makes it a sleeper hit for me. Season 2 continues the complicated stories of a small town in England during World War II told from women’s perspectives. I particularly like what the writers did with Teresa, the lesbian character. Especially her scenes with the female pilot. They didn’t sugar coat nor did they sensationalize the need for many people to seek out opposite sexed partners in order to fit in during this time period. I absolutely adore Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey) and my heart breaks as I cheer for Pat to break the literal bonds she’s imprisoned in. Wasn’t seeing that cliff hanger coming during the final episode that’s for sure. Home Fires is the kind of series I could watch again and enjoy immensely. 5 out of 5 for the excellently produced series.

D.E.B.S

February 27, 2017

d-e-b-sFinally got around to watching D.E.B.S., a spoof of action comedies and parody of Charlie’s Angels featuring four young women who are training to become paramilitary operatives. The kink in their plan results from one of the women falling in love with a female villain. Great seeing a film portray two women in love. What concerned me about D.E.B.S. stemmed from a lackluster script. In the end, I just didn’t care about these girls. I felt bad. Writer/Director Angela Robinson has been a writer/producer behind True Blood and The L Word. Sorry, I just didn’t feel this. 1 out of 5. Next.

Home Fires: Season 1

February 24, 2017

home-fires-s1What a surprise after making an initial pass on the British series, Home Fires to be delighted when I finally sat down and gave this beautiful show a chance. Excellent acting, warm stories, and interaction that makes the Bechdel Test smile broadly, Home Fires creates the perfect combination which makes British historical dramas endear as they so often do. Francesca Annis and Samantha Bond (Rosamund on Downton Abbey) work their magic as the elder characters in the show. But the younger cast members bring depth and drama to Home Fires as well. This is WWII England from a woman’s perspective. Smart and caring performances make this a great addition to the Golden Age of Television. 4 out of 5. Looking forward to Season 2.

What Happened … Ms. Sykes?

February 15, 2017

m2_110_whms_1sht_V1.inddWanda Sykes hour-long stand-up, What Happened … Ms. Sykes? taped in Los Angeles before the election proves Ms. Sykes still has what it takes to make a crowd laugh out loud. Obviously completely comfortable in her own skin, Wanda skewers herself, her French wife, her “white kids,” politics, and life over 50. Wanda’s keeps her comedy personal – like the friend you haven’t seen in a while who convinces you to stay out late and leaves you laughing the whole evening. 3.5 out of 5.
