TV: Unreal So I was prepping to talk about how amazing Unreal is while comparing it to my own personal experience working on The Bachelor and was all, "I was just like the PA with the braids except when the boss yelled I wasn't all cool and chill, I just cried. A lot." But then I watched the episode where the… Continue reading Of the Week

Film Review: In Your Eyes

The red string of fate is an East Asian belief, where, according to myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those that are destined to meet one another. These two people, connected by thread, are destined lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.   … Continue reading Film Review: In Your Eyes

Film Review: Dear White People

Satire is the weapon of reason.  Dear White People is the first feature film from writer/director Justin Simien. Funded partially by Indiegogo, the film was released in the States on Oct. 17th, but only made it to Vancouver, Canada last Friday.

Why “You’re the Worst” is ABSOLUTELY the BEST

The rom-com sitcom you have been waiting for. Now I don't exactly want to take back my rant on why A to Z deserves another season, buuuut... since I discovered FX(X)'s You're the Worst I've lost my appetite for romcomsitcom works-in-progress. Unlike all of its network contemporaries, You're the Worst arrived fully formed and brilliant. (And so much closer to my… Continue reading Why “You’re the Worst” is ABSOLUTELY the BEST

Why A to Z deserves renewal. (Listen up, NBC!)

NBC announced at the beginning of this month that it would not be ordering any more episodes of A to Z. The trades quickly reported that it, along with its timeslot partner and fellow NBC non-orderee, Bad Judge, had been cancelled. Reports that were immediately followed by pangs of regret slicing through the hearts of millions of viewers, "Great," we… Continue reading Why A to Z deserves renewal.

TV: How to Get Away With Murder Unless you've been living under a rock, you've no doubt heard about How to Get Away With Murder. I can't praise this show highly enough. Seriously. It's AMAZING! But, actually, in the effort of honesty, you probably shouldn't trust me on this one. I am the very opposite of… Continue reading Of the Week

Movie: If you're looking for your new favourite romantic comedy, look no further than The F Word. (Or What If if you live in America.) Writer Elan Mastai and director Michael Dowse deliver on all levels. It's sweet; it's hilarious; it's touching; and it's truthful. Mastai has been quoted as saying "... everyone is an expert (on romantic comedies)." That… Continue reading Of the Week

Links, stories, entertainment, and other various things I enjoyed this week: The full Hollywood Reporter "Drama Queens" roundtable has been released. And if you, like me, are a TV/acting nerd, you'll really enjoy it. Could Vancouver host the 2022 Winter Olympics? Probably not. But this likely isn't the last we're going to hear on the… Continue reading Of the Week
