If you haven’t started watching CBS‘s new Sci-Fi drama Under the Dome, you are really missing out! The show, which premiered on June 24th on CBS, is based on the novel by Stephen King, who also acts as Executive Producer as well as a string of other creative geniuses. If you haven’t yet seen Under the Dome, don’t fear, you can catch up on all of the episodes online or On Demand…and it is definitely worth it.
Originally taking place over a short period of time in the novel of the same name, producers and writers are hoping that the show will last for many, many seasons. What is so intriguing is not the concept of the dome itself, which is pretty intriguing, but the characters who have found themselves trapped under this glass menagerie. One even has to wonder if Stephen King used the dome as an analogy of Tennessee Williams The Glass Menagerie; almost like a human zoo.
Whether or not their is any deeper meaning to all of this, which there has to be, the characters find themselves suddenly trapped under a large, clear dome which is impenetrable. Within the confines of this dome is a a small, comfy, all-American town…filled with crazy cops, scheming council men, a lesbian couple and their teenage daughter, a man on the run and love all around. This show definitely has the potential to heat up, and just like The Killing and True Blood, we find ourselves anxious at the end of each episode, almost like we’re trapped in the dome too!
Under the Dome can be seen on CBS Mondays 10/9c!

Season 6 of HBO’s True Blood premieres June 16th 2013 at 9pm and it couldn’t come sooner!!! Last season we were left with Bill becoming the ultimate Vamp by finishing the vamp of Lilith and rising out of some fucked up blood pool.Now it looks like the world is fighting back against the blood sucking, never dying, super sexy vamps and I guess they’re fighting against a bunch of other super natural beings.If we had to choose a side, we’d choose the vamp side… who doesn’t want to live forever and be sexy forever?! We do!!
While some are calling it “The Jersey Shore of Appalachia”, we’ve nicknamed it “The Redneck Laguna Beach”! And we love it!!!!
It wasn’t that long ago that MTV closed down it’s reality series The Hills, the spinoff of it’s earlier series Laguna Beach, to confirmations of the show’s relationships, arguments and daily debacles being completely fake. So we’re wondering, as MTV embarks upon a new series, Buckwild, or more appropriately a redneck version of Laguna Beach, will we also find out in the end that this show is fake? We hope not. It doesn’t seem like there’s much concern as the main cast members flip from houses into dump-truck pools, glide down a water slide made of plastic and soap and attempt to toughen character by jumping off of bridges.
Simply put…WE LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!
Does MTV even have any idea what it’s done? Do these kids have any idea what kind of ride they’re strapped in for because it’s going to much crazier than muddin’ on a Saturday afternoon! All across the country, teenagers are Tweeting about this crazy show, especially about it’s main character, good lovin, city-fearing country boy Shain. The interesting thing about this show is that it seems so real and these kids seem so down home country that you start wondering how all of this stardom will affect them. Most of the cast already has Twitter accounts with over 20,000 followers. Not tons, but a good foundation for a reality star by it’s 3rd episode. Imagine these kids in a few years once they achieve Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag and Kristin Cavallari fame. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
In the first episode Shain admits he doesn’t have internet, Facebook or any of that stuff…will that change? (All over Twitter people are using #TwitterlessShane to talk about his whereabouts) It’s an interesting concept when you think about the effect of reality television on the world. Maybe not our world…but theirs. Are we doing them a favor, or should we have left them country real. Hopefully they can stay that way while gaining a little bit of fame for themselves!
If you’re interested in their Twitter accounts, check them out below:
A little prediction…while Shain may seem like the show’s star, Tyler might be a hottie and Cara might be a little spicy…Anna will end up being the real star of this show. In a few years, expect a spinoff called “The Big City“…with Anna as the star!
Buckwild airs on MTV Thursdays 10/9c

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars hasn’t even crowned a queen yet and already LOGO TV has released the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 which is scheduled to premier on January 28th, 2013. And…Alaska, Sharon Needles’ boyfriend, finally made it on the show after several, several…several attempts. We’re sure she’s a huge contender being that she seems to come from the same creative gene pool as Sharon…obviously one of our all time faves.
Also up for consideration are several queens who have pageant pasts, such as Roxxxy Andrews(Miss Continental Plus 2010/Miss West Virginia Continental 2012, Coco Montrese(Miss Gay America 2010) and Alyssa Edwards(Miss Gay USofA 2006/Miss Gay America 2010(Dethroned)/All American Goddess 2010(Dethroned). Already, the drag pageant boards are lighting up with conversations and threads of anti-Alyssa debauchery stating she doesn’t have the professionalism to be on RuPaul’s drag race, especially since she’s been dethroned twice from national titles. To make it even more interesting, fellow Ru contestant Coco Montrese, her 1st alternate to Miss Gay America 2010, assumed Alyssa’s role after she was dethroned. Makes for some very interesting subtext to the show.
Also…Detox was one of the queens in the Chow Down(at Chick fil-A) Video made famous by Willam Belli seen HERE! The video is absolutely hilarious and went viral quickly! All of the other girls look amazing too, and maybe we’ll try to dig up some gossip and background stories on the others to share here later in the week!
Stay tuned as we’ll be doing weekly reviews, interviews with the contestants and up to the moment gossip before the show premieres…and after.
Ohhhh…and LOGO…could you please put Danny Noriega aka Adore Delanoon the show so she can shut the fuck up!!!! Isn’t one reality show enough Danny??? Actually, we’re totally serious. We’re huge Danny/Adore fans and think she would be an amazing addition to the show. Just saying…Season 6 maybe???
Check out pictures of all of the Season 5 contestants below and let us know what you think…we love getting the gossip threads started on our page! In order: Alaska, Alyssa Edwards, Coco Montrese, Detox, Honey Mahogany, Ivy Winters, Jinkx Monsoon, Lineysha Sparx, Monica Beverly Hillz, Penny Tration, Roxxxy Andrews, Serena Chacha and Vivienne Pinay.
Oh Lawt we are loving us some RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars! It has been a long time since we have seen such humorous antics. Ok…now we know everyone thinks Tammie Brown is completely nuts, but maybe it is in this mysterious confusion that her genius lies. Her Tammy Faye Baker was spot on! And if you watched her during the Untucked episode, she didn’t seem to be so crazy…in fact, her ability to read Michelle Visage and several of the girls in the room, indirectly, was so surprising that maybe we just underestimated ole Tammie. Not to fear because the Funny Girl was sashayed away and won’t be with us anymore. Unless…are you guys catching the commercials with the eliminated girls that follow the end credits where they ask viewers to vote that they’re not happy about their elimination??? Does this mean that some of these girls might be coming back? Hmmmm…
And poor Nina Flowers…
Ok, enough of that.
So…who was amazing tonight? Well, first of all, can we please discuss Raven’s 5 o’clock shadow on the final stage??? Why did no judge address this issue. Could it be that Michelle Visage didn’t address it because her’s is just as bad? Come on Michelle, quit being such a horrid bitch to these girls. You’ve had better days yourself. But Raven and JuJuBee looked so good at the end, besides the construction worker roughness, that we had to give the girls major props.
JuJuBee…HILARIOUS! Her little side comments throughout the show tonight had us literally in stitches. You can not teach that kind of humor…she is literally a natural. Especially with her eye movements. Milan can be just as funny when she wants to be but you can tell she’s really in it to win it…nothing wrong with that girl!
Oh Latrice, we love you so! Oprah and “Deeeep Frieed Butttttter!” If you don’t know what she’s talking about, take a look!
Yara and Alexis Mateo…BAM! Maybe it’s because we’re one half Latino, but we LOVE these bitches. We don’t even care that we have no idea what they’re saying half the time.
Who does that leave us with…ahhh, yes. Chad Michaels and Shannel. We loved them and thought they were the best. Well…Tammie Brown takes the cake for the one woman show variety act, but other than that we thought Chad and Shannel were pretty incredible. And these judges are getting a little ridiculous. We were sitting here wondering what famous people we’d be if we had to impersonate someone AND be funny and we couldn’t even imagine. We were so happy for Chad watching the Untucked episode where he received a message from his dad. Everyone deserves to have 2nd, 3rd and 9th chances, especially if it means letting old people back in your life. The best message of all was Chad saying that time is short…ain’t that the truth sister!
Who do YOU want to win? Comment below and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for a chance to win!
Until next week,
Be Yourself. Be Fearless. Be Your Own Unexpected Luxury!
Did you guys catch the premiere episode of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race??? If not, here’s a RuCap…uh, a recap!
First of all, bitter, bitter Pandora Boxx. Poor thing. If you hadn’t worried so much about being paired up with Mimi Imfurst who has thinned out incredibly and proven herself with her hilarious “Stop It. You People Leave Mitt Alone” video(see below), you might have had a chance to stick around and even possibly win. But, unfortunately, your bitterness won, proving that once a bitter queen, always a bitter queen, so we must bid you Auf wiedersehen…oh wait! Wrong show. Anyway, we were kinda sad that the pairing up happened anyway because we would have liked to have seen what would have occurred if Pandora’s bitterness towards Mimi hadn’t owned the show. Actually, we were hoping Mimi would pick up Chad Michaels and throw her over her shoulder in their lip sync for your life. Cher would have let that bitch have it! Sorry to see you go girls…we actually love you both and are sure you have a huge career ahead of you. Needless to say, it’s a little bit like the Big Brother house…no one remembers. See ya at the reunion! (If you haven’t seen Pandora’s YouTube videos check them out HERE! They are hilarious…as is Mimi Imfurst’s Romney parody of Chris Crocker’s Leave Britney alone video!)
How perfect was it that Alexis Mateo and Yara Sofia got teamed up??? Do either of them understand what the other one is saying. And how long can they use that excuse that they didn’t understand the assignment? Bitch, this isn’t 3rd grade. But we are huge fans of both girls and we have to say that Alexis, although she didn’t need to lose any weight, shed quite a bit and looks incredible, almost fishy. Werk!
Chad Michaels and Shannel looked so incredible through the whole show but they did completely miss the point of the photo shoot. The judges were absolutely right…they’re almost too posed and perfect. Trash it up a little bit girls…This ain’t a Vegas showroom and you girls aren’t Elizabeth Berkley and Gina Gershon in Showgirls!!!
Oh…we are SUCH huge Shannel and Chad fans we have to tease them a little bit!
Tammie Brown and Nina Flowers. All Stars. They are literally in a world of their own. Tammie is that old, kind of character actor breed that never leaves the theater. But if you watched her in the Untucked episode, she almost lost her balls running around the room calling everyone out. What the hell was that? She’s nuts and we love it!
Congrats to Latrice and Manila on their first win of the season. It was especially nice to see after the horrible tragedy of Milan losing her boyfriend Sahara Davenport. Even though she’s such a bitch, isn’t there a part of all of us that are rooting for her to make it to the top for that reason alone? And the bitch looked fierce when she walked in. The modern day Cruella De Vil! And we think she’s fabulous!
Which leaves us with Raven and JuJubee. Actually…we think they should have won! Their picture with the eyeglass was amazeballs! And they looked incredible on the runway.
Needless to say, it’ll be a good season with lots of surprises, starting with the elimination of not just one, but two all stars! (Mimi Imfurst is an All Star??? We mean…yes, yes…All Stars, darling!)
Til Next time, RuEnergize and Don’t RuPologize and
ABC’s drama Scandal is all about the illustrious art of hiding secrets! Last spring we fell in love with this firm based out of DC whose sole focus was to hide political secrets and clean up any kind of A-class news scandals of our nation’s elite – in a way, Gossip Girl’s major political enemy!
Last season we were left hanging with the question “who is Quinn” and on tonight’s season premier, “White Hat’s Off”, all our questions will be answered as the plot thickens for an even juicier season coaching us right through election season.
Here’s what we know so far:
Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) left the White House and is working for President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) after their having a very heated affair. Upon leaving the White House she opened her own crisis management firm for the nations elite and created a team of strong and scary job doers and crisis cleaners. Last season, we spent a lot of time learning about the big elephant in the room… Olivia’s affair with the President.
We’re glad to learn that in this coming season we’ll learn more about the Pope & Associates staff and dive into the scandalicious plot of what makes this powerful bunch so powerful.
Season 2 premieres tonight at 10 on ABC. Stay tuned for our exclusive reviews and back stories as the Season progress. Make sure you follow us for exclusive and nail-biting reviews of Scandal and all of your favorite shows!

Television is very serious in our home. For that reason, we never read spoilers. In fact, we only post them after the show as a way for readers who didn’t see a show to catch up on all of the details. To say that we are uber excited about the premier of Season 4 of Glee would be a huge understatement. How could the kids leave us hanging with absolutely no way of knowing who went where and what happened??? Fortunately, it’s time for all of us to find out!
We are purposely not reading any of the spoilers, which are already leading up to episode 5, and are waiting to be surprised and delighted with whatever Glee has to offer this season! But…as a little party favor, we thought we’d include post the first official Glee song of Season 4, Carly Rae Jepson’s Call Me Maybe, to get everyone excited. Yeah, yeah…we’re sick of the song too, but we have to admit it was super fun seeing the kids dance around stage singing the same words to the one song everyone knows! Check it out and let us know what you think. By the way, we’ll be writing up our opinions and reviews of all of the Glee episodes so stay tuned and see if you agree with us! We’re also going to include little cast facts at the end of each post! Stay tuned…looks to be an exciting year at McKinley High!
Did you know Darren Criss is 5’9 tall and weights approximately 160 pounds? He also wears a size 10 shoe! Who cares…he’s so hot!
You literally had to see it to believe it, but there is now NO DOUBT…This season is the BEST season of Big Brother ever and Dan is the BEST player in Big Brother history. Strangely enough, until tonight, we didn’t even like him. And maybe we still don’t…but he’s one hell of a player. (We would like to not that we thought it was incredibly touching when he was in the storeroom and said that his three favorite things in life were his wife, family and “playing this game”! Amen brother! Here’s what happened…
Britney had the entire POV competition all figured out. Dan and Danielle needed to throw the competition and let either she or Shane win, thus ensuring that the Quack Pack was still secure. What she didn’t know was that minutes before, Jenn went to Frank and told him that she was going to play with him and that he “wasn’t alone”. We’ve been waiting all summer for this girl to make a move and when she finally did…she made the boldest move of the summer. During the POV competition, Frank was trying to help Britney with an answer and he was disqualified. With Dan grinning ear to ear, Jenn realized she needed to win the POV competition, which she did. (During the competition, Dan was awarded 24 hours in a Dance Marathon sequester while Frank was awarded several ridiculous punishments including a carrot suit, chum shower and the inability to participate in the next HOH competition.)
Immediately following the competition, Dan was sequestered. When he came out 24 hours later, he acted very strange and called everyone into a meeting where he hosted “Dan’s Funeral”. He said he no longer wanted to play the game and just wanted to spend his last moments in the house having fun. He addressed each player and everyone was crying, including us. At the end, he told Danielle he would never trust her again in the game and that he knew what she did.
Then Dan went and talked to Frank and concocted a scheme where Jenn would take him off of the block, replace him with Britney, get rid of her and Frank, Dan, Danielle and Jenn would sail into the final four with Frank and Dan being the final two.
During the POV ceremony, Ian didn’t use his power of veto. Jenn stated she was using her POV to remove Dan. This might have been one of the greatest moments in Big Brother history as Britney and Ian, looking completely confused and upset, were informed by Frank of the mastermind plan to get back at Ian for getting Boogie out and that since he couldn’t put Ian on the chopping block, Britney was going up instead…as his closest alliance. It…was…classic! Completely unexpected!
To think all of this happened in just 24 hours in the house??? Imagine what will happen in the next 24 hours before the eviction ceremony. Needless to say, Britney will go home. But…we’re very interested to see how Jenn plays the rest of the game. When talking to Frank initially, she said that she was looking at the players and if you just moved a few people around you would get a completely different outcome. We’ve known for awhile she was really smart, we thought she just hadn’t had the opportunity to make a play. Well…she finally did; maybe one of the boldest moves in Big Brother history catapulting Dan’s plan into action probably making him the greatest Big Brother player ever!
We are so excited about the rest of the season we can hardly wait. Follow us and check out all of our commentary and stay tuned for our reviews of Survivor Philipines starting on September 19th!
