I know I wasn't the only one who cheered when Sigourney Weaver's Elaine Barrish told a handsy Russian diplomat that she'd "fuck his shit up" on last night's premiere of Political Animals on USA. A star-studded "limited series" event (I think that is TVspeak for miniseries), the show is based not-so-loosely on the Clinton marriage if Hillary had told Bill to get lost after her failed presidential bid. So far, it's being hailed by some as a step forward for strong women on television and derided by others for being sucky. Both sides have a point.
Sure, it's summer and that means you're more likely to find me streaming old episodes of Pretty Little Liars on my laptop than watching a season premiere (no, YOU stayed up until 2:00 last night to find out what happened at the dance-a-thon!), but the fall shows are only two short months away, with them comes the Mindy Project.
Check out this new promo for the show, where Mindy talks work/life balance while walking through the hospital where she is a doctor:
Did you watch True Blood on Sunday? The Authority made an appearance (creepy kid and Christopher Meloni included), Tara lost it all over Sookie's house, and Sheriff Andy reminded us that "assmunch" is an underused insult. And (thank Lilith!) Pam was still wearing that kitty cat sweatsuit! Looking good as always.
For those of you who've reading our weekly Mad Men coverage here at Bitch, fear not: we'll recap Sunday's season finale (sniff), but we'll be covering True Blood too! Because a soap-y, action-packed show like TB doesn't really merit a 1,500-word analysis each week, we'll be live tweeting each episode at @BitchMediaLive and posting a quick rehash each Monday.
