It's going to be a long winter for those of us who aren't in Los Angeles (LA, I get it, it's warm and perfect all year, stop bragging about it). However, we get to bundle up in front of fires with our boyfriends and girlfriends and cuddle while binge-watching marathon after marathon on Netflix, and that is the perfect scenario. For those of us who are still single and haven't found love yet, maybe we can cuddle with a roommate, but regardless, Netflix has seriously up-ed their TV show game this year.
TV for Lovers
TV and movie sets are pretty much hotbeds for hooking up. If you want to find love (or, let's be real, just have sex with someone hot), it's a safe bet that being an actor or actress will help with that. But things get complicated when you find out that your crush may not be playing your love interest in whatever project you stalked your way into, but rather, they're starring as your sibling. Which means unless it's some weird Harmony Korine-type project, you probably will never, ever get to make out with said crush without some major re-writes in the mix.
Warning: Spoilers for The Walking Dead ahead! If you love the show but aren't caught up, don't read this until you've had a DVR binge. The Walking Dead has a new person for us to hate while we wait on Beth to come back (or not) from the hospital full of rapists and their apologists. Eugene Porter, who claimed to be working on the Human Genome Project and that he knew what caused the zombie outbreak, is a liar.
Singer Lorde sang a soulful cover of rapper Jeremih's hit song "Don't Tell 'Em" and we're seriously in love!
OK, for everyone talking about Kim Kardashian's supposedly super-sexy butt pic from that Paper magazine cover: that isn't real. It's clearly photoshopped to Hell and back. That's not what her butt looks like, that's not what any butt looks like. Everyone needs to stop freaking out, it's basically a cartoon picture.
The other day, I overheard somebody say "They don't make men like they used to." As a guy, I was a little insulted. If anything, I'd like to consider myself an updated model on the classic man. All the good stuff that the old model had, plus some nice upgrades. It doesn't matter though, because that person was wrong. Jon Hamm, the star of Mad Men, is a classic man, through and through. He's handsome, smart, charming and funny, ladies. What more do you want?!
Oh, those Kardashians. How can you not love Kylie Jenner? Kylie Jenner, the youngest daughter of Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, is a satellite member of the reality TV clan, but she is certainly making a name for herself. Her inflated lips have been a hot media topic, which bores the teenager. She is just 17, so she can afford to be a rebel (and to potentially puff up her pout if she feels like it).
Why ABC ever read this pilot and thought that it would make a good show audiences would love is beyond me, but they did and for the good of all humanity it has been canceled, even though they are airing the remaining ordered episodes. In case you're not as in tune with pilot season as I am, Selfie is a show about a girl who is so involved with online social media that she forgets basically how to be a human being. She has no idea how to interact with other humans (which I guess is pretty realistic these days, so I will give them that).
Netflix recently broke the news that they will be adapting Lemony Snicket's book series A Series of Unfortunate Events; with the amount of life lessons packed into every chapter, we couldn't be more in love with the series if we tried!
Season 5 of AMC's The Walking Dead has been insane so far, and we're only a few episodes in to this installment of the series. Warning: Beware of spoilers ahead if you're not caught up! One person who's been missing all season until now? Beth Greene, daughter of the late Hershel Greene and sister to badass (and one half of the best TV couples ever) Maggie Greene.
