What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith


Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise Read more

The Bachelorette 2013: Week Seven Recap

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Reality Check, Television, TV Reviews | 1 Comment

WHOA WHOA WHOA. I missed one week of nobody’s favorite show, and there are like three dudes left. OKAY, kidding, there are totally five —which means that next week brings the HOMETOWN DATES. Last week (so sorry for my absence, y’all), Des sent home James (THE WORST) and Juan Pablo, because apparently she wants to practice abstinence for THE REST OF HER LIFE.  This week, Des had some former Bachelor pals visit (America’s fave z list celebs) including WhiteLesley from Sean’s season, and other people that I didn’t like as much.  AND, all the dudes started telling Des they love her, even though we know she probs only loves Brooks. OKAY. Highlights!

The Bachelorette 2013: Week 5 Recap

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Reality Check, Television | Leave a comment

It’s another week of The Bachelorette and another week where all of our brain cells shrink into themselves and then explode onto the floor. The show could have been truncated into 30 minutes of nail-biting television, and instead, it dragged out for what felt like an eternity. But imagine! If the show were condensed into 30 minutes, and they turned it into a sitcom about a group of suitors and a boring lady. Or, they just made it like Friends. OR, they made it INTO Friends. Then we could all just watch and talk about Friends every week!

This week included a trip to Germany, a two on one date, and a great set of previews. Highlights below!

The Bachelorette 2013: Week 4 Recap

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Reality Check, Television, TV Reviews | 2 Comments

Last night on The Bachelorette, there were high heels, tears, helicopters (obvi), and, of course, a private Darius Rucker show. No one’s quite sure when this show became the relaunch pad for comeback 90’s artists, but, then again, nobody really cares. To be honest, most of this episode was an opportunity for ABC to put their do-good shoes on and promote support for the Red Cross’ Hurricane Sandy efforts. And, as noble as that is, if you’re anything like me, most of the time you were just asking yourself: is that where Jersey Shore was filmed? The highlight of this bore-fest was the Mr. Bachelorette or Mr. America or whatever pageant, where the dudes put on speedos and Des giggled. In case you (hopefully) missed it:

The Bachelorette 2013: Week 3 Recap

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Reality Check, TV Reviews | Leave a comment

Oh boy. Here we go. Last night on The Bachelorette we had lady tanks, ex (current?!) girlfriends, tears, makeouts, and, as always: fast forwarding. There was some dodgeball and some stunt doubling, and the whole world decided they wanted to be in Des’ shoes just so they could sit in the presence of Juan Pablo, the spanish speaking sex machine who looks like a way hotter version of Matthew Mc-On-uh-Hey!  Time for the five greatest/worst moments of last night’s episode!

The Bachelorette 2013: Week Two Recap

Welcome back to another week of The Bachelorette.  Are you crying from boredom now? Did you read Infinite Jest this morning to replenish your neurons? Great. Then we’re not on the same page.  Last night, the star of the show was Des’ baby blue Bentley, with the close runner up being one of the bachelors who doesn’t seem to have a neck. But, seeing as the Bentley technically belongs to Chris Harrison & ABC, we’ll go ahead and review the rest of the night’s crazy events, which mostly involved a lot of roided-up arguments, v-necks, and hooded sweatshirts designed to fit men with shoulders the size of mediocre songwriters’ egos.  And, as always, we’ll save you the hassle and condense this into five danger-free highlights!

First, a rap video full of white people
