After playing the Full Frontal with Samantha Bee ticket lottery for months, my name was finally drawn for one of their March live tapings. Of course, just like my experience with Last Week Tonight, the tickets opened up last minute, but inconvenience be damned I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity. So off to the city I went, on a weeknight no less.
Last week my Dad and I ventured into New York to see the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience. With such a long wait between seasons this seemed like the perfect way to get our Westeros fix. Plus, the show does have an epic soundtrack so what better way to enjoy it than with hundreds of fellow fans, a state-of-the-art arena, and some pyrotechnics?
I’ll be honest, I tried to write this blog last year, but for whatever reason I just couldn’t get my thoughts to make sense on paper. I’m sure Hannah would understand. But hey, no time like the present, right? The sixth and final season of Girls premieres on Sunday February 12th at 10pm. And I for one and looking forward to the show’s last chapter.
I’ve already written about my favorite TV and pop culture podcasts, twice in fact. (Here’s five more podcasts I recommend.) But what can I say, there’s a lot of content out that and I listen to a lot of podcasts. So here’s three more you should give a listen.
“Peak TV” is not a myth. There’s a lot of damn fine shows to watch essentially all year round these days, which makes selecting these superlatives both easier and more difficult. I obviously can only watch so much, so there’s a hundred percent chance I’ve missed something or somethings. Thankfully the list below is completely subjective and doesn’t actually matter. So without further ado, here’s my picks for the best of 2016.
MTV’s newest scripted series Sweet/Vicious debuts Tuesday November 15th at 10pm; however, the first three episodes are currently available online at MTV.com and OnDemand via your cable provider. Never one to turn down a chance to preview a series early, I binged all three over the weekend. I liked what I saw, it’s like Kick-Ass meets Veronica Mars, but I imagine most viewers will know whether it’s their jam or not based on the premise alone.
This Presidential Election has been rather divisive, but I think we can all agree on one thing – it needs to be over. So after you cast your vote on Tuesday, why not take your mind off things with some TV. No, I’m not recommending you watch the 24-hour news cycle, I recommend checking out these election day-inspired episodes.
