HBO’s Girls Excels at Telling Unflattering Truths

HBO’s Girls Excels at Telling Unflattering Truths

HBO Girls Season 6

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.

Play-Button

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.

Amazon’s Red Oaks is Rooted in New Jersey

Amazon’s Red Oaks is Rooted in New Jersey

Red Oaks Season 2

I distinctly remember marathoning season 1 of Red Oaks and being disappointed that it wasn’t more Jersey*. Sure, the fictional town and country club were NYC adjacent, but little beyond that would give away its setting. Where were the diners and the Pork Roll? (I know, I know, it’s Taylor Ham up North.)

Completely Arbitrary 2016 TV Superlatives

Completely Arbitrary 2016 TV Superlatives

Best TV of 2016

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.

YOLO! 3 TV Episodes Featuring Spontaneous Road Trips

YOLO! 3 TV Episodes Featuring Spontaneous Road Trips

Parks and Rec Road Trip Grand Canyon

Last weekend I drove from New Jersey to Indianapolis and back to see Penn State play in the Big Ten Championship game. It wasn’t something I initially planned to do, but after I was able to get my hands on some reasonably priced tickets and was offered a couch to sleep on by some friends in Ohio, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. So in less than a week I went from browsing StubHub to driving over 1,400 miles for a football game.

Snacks for Your Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life Binge Watch

Snacks for Your Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life Binge Watch

Gilmore Girls Nextflix Revival

Over the course of Gilmore Girls 153-episode run, Lorelai and Rory watch a ton of movies and consume an inordinate amount of snack food. Occasionally they do both at the same time. And for me, the one episode that most epitomizes their love for both is season one’s “Kiss and Tell” (1×7).

MTV’s Sweet/Vicious Is The Superhero Duo We Need

Sweet/Vicious on MTV

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.

Escape Reality With These Election Episodes

SNL Clinton Trump Debate 2016

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.
