Orange is the New Black—the new Netflix original series premiering July 11—is a prison drama. But that's definitely not all it is. Following naïve yuppie Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) as she enters a women's prison for a 15-month stay, this rich, tactile show delves into gender and sexuality in a deeper way than first meets the eye.
With a wallop of a finale in which jobs were lost, marriages new and old were departed, men of God were socked in the nose, and Hershey's execs were befuddled, the penultimate season of Mad Men came to a close. And we hung on every word. Join us for a final trip through the halls of SC&P, won't you?
Welcome back to the second-to-last week of Mad Men Season 6 recaps! We already miss you, and damn if things aren't getting really interesting, too. This week, Annalee and Kelsey are both unable to report from their television sets, so I'm flying solo on a recap of this especially meaty episode. Read on for thoughts on ulterior motives, boarding-school drama, and the question of whether this show needs another Don Draper now that the first one seems to spend a lot of his time in the fetal position, listening to the Monkees.
Guy Hamdon is an average twelve-year-old boy cartoon character with a skateboard, pesky siblings, and a superhero alter ego. That alter ego happens to be a female superhero named SheZow. On the Hub network's new cartoon series of the same name, Guy shouts the magic phrase "You go, girl!" and gleans superhuman strength and speed, plus a skirt, go-go boots, and a hot pink shapeshifting car.
Welcome back to another week of Mad Men, wherein your faithful recappers recount the good, the bad, and the inevitable—speaking of which, it's too bad Kickstarter wasn't around in 1968, because Sally Draper's Therapy Fund would have been a slam-dunk project. Elsewhere, "The Favor" gives us a chance to talk about wounds, crushes, and who's got the better juice.
Welcome back! This week, Mad Men went to California, and you know what that means: Drugs were taken, hippies were lampooned, and Roger got a well-deserved punch in the family sterling. Meanwhile, back at the office, a new power duo was secretly born, and Jim Cutler decided it was high time we embraced Bob—that means you, Internet conspiracy theorists! Wish Annalee a happy birthday and join us for a recap of "A Tale of Two Cities."
Like millions of Americans reared in the nineties, I grew up rather mindlessly consuming Nick's cartoons and teen sitcoms.Slimed author Mathew Klickstein prods viewers like me to revisit the influential channel's beloved shows with an eye on racial diversity, gender dynamics, and the process behind creating each show.
Welcome back to another exciting week of Mad Men's season six. Your faithful recappers are still recovering from whatever was in those vitamin shots last week, so this episode offered something of a nice woodland respite from much of the office drama. Join us as we discuss "The Better Half"—but, in case you need reminding, don't make any sudden moves with that homemade bayonet.
