Survival at its Fittest: Exploring the Current Post-Apocalyptic Trend

We have made quick transitions between trends in the 21st century, from savior fantasy in Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings (if you don’t think this was a trend I point you to Reign of Fire) to anything vampire (from melodramatic Twilight to melodramatic True Blood to melodramatic Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter…I’m sensing a […]

Boob Tube in Review: 5/21 – 5/27

I think Fox might be the worst culprit of this, but I really despise when shows have the hashtag thing up during the show.

Boob Tube in Review: 5/7 – 5/13

Monday Still nothing for Mondays. Tuesday New Girl – “Besides the fact that you just responded to our craigslist ad with a fax”. “There’s a corpse in your room?” Nicks mix of Breakfast at Tiffanys and How Bizarre is fantastic (and Mmm mmm mmm mmm) Glee – Brittney is pretty funny, she is having a […]
