The Challenge: FREE AGENTS (Episode 1)

11 Apr

Ooh ooh! The new season of MTV’s The Challenge premiered last night and O-M-G it was absolutely spine tingling. If you’re not a fan of the popular MTV series (it’s currently in its 25th season) it’s basically a bunch of Real World people mixed with some randoms. Historically, The Challenge was a blend of two shows on MTV, The Real World and Road Rules. Now they usually take people from all seasons of The Real World, and sometimes throw in some randoms they find on the street. Anyways, it’s basically survivor but they live in a gigantic mansion, Jeff Probst isn’t the host, and they’re all 21-35 year old adults or children, depending on the episode.

So lets get right into this new season. It’s called ‘Free Agents’ because all the contestants are fighting for themselves. Unlike past seasons where contestants are either paired up with their ‘rivals’, ‘exes’ or just put into teams based on their real world season, this one forces the contestants to face each battle on their own. There’s a catch, since they are ‘free agents’ that technically means they can be thrown around anywhere (to any team), so before each challenge, TJ announces what type of challenge they’ll be doing and with whom. It could be a solo mission, an entire team, or just with another female/male.

This week, contestants were separated into two teams (Red vs. Black). It was sort of like a relay race, certain sections of the challenge were given to certain contestants, some players had to run up 42 flights of stairs being chained to one another. The others were waiting at the top of the highest building in Uruguay to get the key from their stair master teammates and solve a puzzle. Once the puzzle was solved, the left over teammates had to walk across a giant beam hanging in mid air. Sounds exhausting right?

I already noticed the editing in this first episode was different. I’ve seen a lot of these seasons and this first episode is definitely one that stands out in terms of production value. I loved that slow motion camera they had on the contestants walking across the beam. Amazing. Also, how cool was that lit up Challenge sign at the pit or whatever it’s called this season.TheChallenge

To say this first challenge was uneventful is completely underrated. Blood and sweat weren’t the only things flying around, Swift (Real World: St Thomas) had the great idea of literally flying through the air to save his teammates who were being trapped in the stairwell. He jumps over Johnny or someone and gets the key out from under the carnage. It was amazing. LaToya (Real World: St. Thomas) felt sick after her stair climb, apparently she hit her head and was rushed to the emergency room while everyone commented on how ‘weak’ she was. Oh boy, how quickly they should’ve regretted saying that one.

Meanwhile, the fate of her teams victory lied in Jess’ sturdy legs and when she ran over that log and rung that bell it was like a light went off inside of her and every single bad childhood memory she had playing sports was wiped away clean because she won for her team! She did it! Dreams really do come true!

After the black team wins the challenge, the team is forced to vote in two players from the red team. They choose to vote in Chet (Real World:Brooklyn) and LaToya. It wasn’t over yet, because everyone’s names who had at least 1 vote against them were still in the running to be sent into eliminations. At the pit, the contestants with votes against have to lift a card and if there’s a skull on it that means they have to go into eliminations. This week, the guy and girl who saw the skulls were: Jemmye (Real World: Back to New Orleans) and Frank (Real World: San Diego)

KillCard

The elimination game was a simple five rounds of put the ball into the hole. You were either offense or defense…you get the point. Honestly, the guys match up was so anti climatic. After 3 rounds, Chet cut his chin wide open. It was bleeding pretty bad but the medics taped him up and TJ asked him if he wanted to continue and get stitched up later or just forfeit. I really didn’t see it coming, but apparently Chet makes money from his gorgina face and chose to forfeit, he admitted that his face and body were worth more than the idea of a large sum of untaxed money. Is it untaxed though?

The girls on the other hand, went HAM. H. A. M…LaToya definitely put up a fight. I think everyone was expecting her to get blown over by Jemmye, but that first round she literally did a circle around Jemmye and put the ball in the bin. The girls ended up fighting until the last round, but LaToya pulled through and she tossed Jemmye out of the ring ending the match. Jemmye’s a good player though and she gave Toya a huge hug and congratulated her on her well deserved victory. See, this is what all women should aspire to!

In the end, Nany reminds us that last season Jemmye was in the finals and this season she’s going home first. That can only mean this challenge is the biggest and baddest season yet! Stay tuned!

Two New DRAKE Tracks!

Check out these two new tracks by Drizzy Drake.

Enjoy.

The Dirty on AHS: Freak Show

31 Mar

Just to update my fellow American Horror Story fans, more news on the upcoming fourth season titled Freak Show was revealed at this years Paley Fest.

The entire cast  was on the panel sans the queen herself, Jessica Lange. The cast opened up about their experience shooting in New Orleans, clearly everyone got their freak on as Sarah Paulson explained…they were drunk for most of the time!

maxresdefault

The shows co-creator Ryan Murphy went on to talk about the fourth installment. Freak Show will be another period season, taking place in Jupiter, Florida (but filming in New Orleans) in the 1950s. Freak Show will find Lange as a German ex-pat running one of the last standing freak shows in the U.S.

Murphy also confirmed everyone on the panel will be in upcoming season- yes that means more Bassett & Bates! There will also be first season actors making a return, as well as new addition Michael Chiklis who will be playing Lange’s ex-husband and Peters’ father.

All very interesting! Too bad it’ll be another 6 months!

 

Game of Thrones: Season 4 Awaits!

28 Mar

Guys can you believe this? Only a week left until the season 4 premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones! I feel like just yesterday our countdown read ’4 months to go’ and now the time has finally arrived. I think this is the most anticipated season of Game of Thrones. With last season’s Red Wedding episode they got way more attention than HBO ever dreamed of…and next Sunday will definitely make ratings history.

Here’s yet another trailer for the fourth season. Keep an eye on the Game of Thrones YouTube page in the coming week, they’ve been uploading special behind-the-scenes videos and interviews…I feel like we’re going to the Superbowl but with dragons.

Check out the trailer.

The Challenge: Free Agents

27 Mar

It’s that time a year again! My favourite time is challenge time, yep a brand spackin’ new season of MTV’s The Challenge premiers on Thursday April 10th 10pmET.

So instead of being paired up in teams like they usually are, this season is all about going solo. It’ll most likely be one winner for the girls, and one winner for the boys. Either way, it’s going to be cray!

Check out the trailer below.

10 Things We Learned From Season 3 of GIRLS

24 Mar

This third season came and went and it’s easy to forget what exactly went down this year. Here are the TOP 10 things we learned from this season of HBO’s Girls.

10. Don’t look to Shoshana for any hair inspiration. She will only make you look cray

girls_ep9_shoshana_g_mp_576

9. Don’t go to your bosses funeral and beg his wife for another job

8. Don’t just assume rehab is the solution to all your problems

7. Do partner up with a hunkie theatre whore if you’re planning to start a band

Marnie Desi

6. Don’t date anyone you meet in rehab. Especially if they’re over 55

5. Don’t take your grandparents for granted!

3. Don’t let your boyfriend’s bi polar sister crash at your crib. Relationships will be destroyed

2. Don’t change the narrative of your kinky role play mid sex

1. To be a good friend you need to find the right moment to tell your bestie you just slept with her ex. DON’T ever do as Marnie does.

And that’s it, hopefully we can take what we learned this season and actually use it…buuuut we’re not that cray so probably not.

TOP 10: TV SHOWS YOU WISH WOULD COME BACK

2 Mar

Now that Heroes is signed to come back for a mini series and Veronica Mars is being made into a movie, it’s only fair we enjoy a relaxing Sunday and remember all the shows we wish would come back.

10. DEXTER

Okay so I know it’s only been a few months since the series finale but it left on such a disappointing note, I wish the writers would come back with a ‘resurrection’ season. It doesn’t even have to be about Dexter, I’m really up for the show going on with Harrison. I mean realistically his is unique enough to be the title of a hit show. He’s a good looking kid so I don’t see why he won’t turn into a sexy serial killer adult. The show won’t take place in Miami anymore, it’ll probably be in some ‘shi-shi’ part of Europe, or wherever Hannah decided to raise him. It would totally work.

9. Are You Afraid of the Dark?

ayaotd_intro

Yes, yes I am. This popular 90s hit TV show set the bar on tween horror shows, sorry Goosebumps you were never scary enough. First, I loved the characters on the show. They seemed like normal young teens who were lucky enough to have a fire pit just steps away from their backyard. They really should bring this back- maybe with a little more umph?

8. Dawson’s Creek

Loved the way this show ended, but I feel like every girl out there could use a little DC in their life. I feel like One Tree Hill had the same look and feel, definitely the closest show to a modern day Dawson’s Creek but it’s never as good as the real thing. Not that they were trying to copy it.

7. 7th Heaven

7thheaven-2

The fact that they got rid of this brilliant family drama and introduced us to Keeping Up With the Kardashians says everything about pop culture today. We used to love a show about a priest and his fam-  even his sermons were entertaining. Now, there’s Kim Kardashian. Also, if they brought it back (okay maybe Reverend Eric Camden would be retired or dead) but we could still watch the lives of the kids. Like yummy Simon Camden, or perfect little housewife Lucy. And the best part,  maybe Mary Camden marries a famous pop singer and he’s obligated to make an appearance on the show. JT, how cool would that be?

6. Entourage

I know, I know there’s a movie in the works- but it’s never the same. I feel like the ending was bittersweet and it set up the perfect platform for a film, but this show could’ve gone on for another 5 seasons. They could’ve fast forwarded in time to change it up a little, whatever the format I think it would’ve been a hit. I’d rather watch an episodic show than one big most likely mediocre movie.

5. Friends

I shouldn’t have to elaborate on this. It could’ve gone on forever. Literally.

4. MTV Cribs

MTV-Cribs1

Nobody EVER changes the channel when MTV Cribs is on. It was the most educational show on the network, and it was about nothing. The best part was it would always air as a marathon so you’d waste your entire Saturday watching Cribs- we all did it. They still show the old episodes, the other day I saw the one with Nelly back when he still wore dew rags and bragged about his jacked up GMC Yukon (circa 2002). Dear MTV, we want new episodes!

3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

btvs-scobbie-gang-in-library-buffy-the-vampire-slayer-635534_746_576

This was probably my favourite show of all time growing up. I don’t know how they would bring it back, SMG is old now but I feel like they need to at least attempt a remake. Everyone knows the high school era was the best, if they blended a little American Horror Story with Vampire Diaries, I think the show would be a smash reborn hit. All new cast, ooh who would be your Angel?

2. The O.C

Looking back on The O.C always makes me feel like I failed at life. I loved the show from the beginning, it made me angry/depressed my parents didn’t decide to raise me in some suburban Southern California town. It was so hard to watch the show fall a part- I do think the departure of Marissa (Mischa Barton) was a huge reason the show went down, but I still think the show could’ve gone on. The writing was witty and shocking, there was no other teen drama like it on TV. I loved One Tree Hill but it had way more cheese than The O.C. Hopefully in the future, when someone casts for The O.C sequel, they won’t choose a 5’4 leading man, and an awkward coked up princess as the leading lady.

1. Friday Night Lights

Friday-Night-Lights-season-3-episode-12

This is the most underrated show- ever. The movie was amazing, but forget that the show was absolutely brilliant. With the platform of football, Friday Night Lights was able to dive into a specific subculture of the American spirit so accurately. Yes the show was about sports, but it was much- much more than that. Friday Night Lights has been over for a few years but I still find myself watching old episodes and reliving the excitement as it was when the show aired. The best part is, out of all the shows we’ve discussed here, I think a FNL continuation is the most realistic. The characters might change, but the importance of football and the significance a town has on shaping all these different characters still makes sense. Football is so important to Americans, this show took that ran with it, scored a touchdown and made everyone in America feel like they were rooting for the same team.

TOP 10: TV Characters You Wish You Were Friends With

25 Feb

We all have our favourite characters in TV, whether we see a little of ourselves in them or we just plain out love what they stand for- we sometimes wish they could be real. We’re counting down the Top 10 TV Characters You Wish You Were Friends With – that’s if they existed in the real world of course.

 

10. Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory)

It’s always good to have a friend that’s a genius. Like for instance when you’re at a restaurant and the bill comes, he can figure out how much everyone owes plus tips within seconds. And the best part, he doesn’t mind being the braniac friend!

sheldon_cooper

9. Vincent Chase (Entourage)

vincentchase

It’s good to have friends in high places. Okay so maybe he’s not Oprah Winfrey high but he’s got a fun loving entourage and a sick party pad. Who wouldn’t want to be friends with Vincent Chase? Dibs on Turtle.

 

8. Rayna James (Nashville)

Nashville-Rayna-Deacon

Is like the country singer version of Celine Dion. She’s almost as famous as Vincent Chase- well she’s like Nashville famous not Hollywood famous. Regardless, it would be a good time being on road with her, okay so maybe she’s a little old- but she always knows how to have a good time. Since getting into an accident with drunk Deacon behind the wheel, Rayna takes extra precautions when going drinking with her girlfriends. She hires private cars to drive her drunk friends around awesome, right?

 

7 . Spencer Hastings (Pretty Little Liars)

pll-spencer-hastings-forgotten_300x300

Whether your friend is dead and sending you letters from the grave- or you just want to know who stole your new sunglasses…having a friend that’s uber smart and calculating is always a plus. Spencer Hastings gets her smarts from her parents (lawyers) and is obviously the only one that attempts putting the puzzle together. Her devotion to the cause, and her probability of being the designated driver (she always wants to have a clear head) makes her a perfect candidate for best friend status.

 

6. Queenie (American Horror Story: Coven)

AHS-3x01_25

This girl can enjoy a party size pizza while conjuring up spells for any ex boy or mean girl that’s been bad to you. Not only does she specialize in voodoo, she proves she is a top qualifier for supreme witch. She can bring things back to life, move things, levitate, start fires…you get the deal. She’s the perfect person to have by your side, and if you’ve had too much to drink and there’s no DD in sight…she can magically transport you back to your cozy warm bed.

 

5. Dexter or Michonne (Dexter/The Walking Dead)

Episode 809

This one was tough. You always want that one friend who can kick total ass. They usually have a famous weapon they resort to using, Michonne has her Katana and she absolutely kills with it. Dexter doesn’t have a specific weapon he’s just really clean when he murders people, which is a good thing. You don’t just want to kill your enemy, you wanna get away with it. Michonne is good to have around just in case you decide to get dreads- you wouldn’t be the only crazy looking one. And if Dexter was your homie, he’d most likely bring Deb around and she seems like a hell of a good time. She’s always drinking her face away.

 

4. Shoshana (Girls)

girls_ep9_shoshana_g_mp_576

Coming off of last Sunday’s episode of Girls where Shoshana absolutely loses her s*** she would be the most honest friend you have. She had no shame in letting it all hang out, even if it meant hurting people’s feelings. Honesty is the best policy, and if you can wake up the next morning and move on as if things are better, then you’ve found the one. Also her super cute NYC condo is an extra plus.

 

3. Tina Fey (30 Rock)

30 ROCK

I’m confused as to whether or not I would want Tina as my mother or my friend. As a friend I feel like she would just want to sit at home and write…but as a mom she would be totally cool! You would be the funniest kid ever- I mean your mom is Tina Fey, right? You could get weekly tickets to the taping of Saturday Night Live, Amy Poehler would be like your godmother…it would be the perfect life.  Plus everytime you watch Mean Girls with your girlfriends you could be like, “My mom wrote that!”

 

2. Khaleesi (Game of Thrones)

khaleesi

We’re getting down to the bottom two! This is so exciting, what would you do if Khaleesi was your homegirl? Well let’s get this clear, I definitely would only want to be her homegirl after the dragons were born. Before she was a slave to her brother. I hate seeings my friends in tough situations. Although I definitely would’ve liked to be a bridesmaid at her wedding to Khal Drogo- that wedding looked f%@#!$ crazy, in a good way. I’m not sure if Khaleesi gets her drink on, lately she’s been so focused on ruling the world and being a good mother to her dragons. But if she were to start slammin’ the bottle, we would have the times of our lives. You could either hitch a ride home with your dragon or one of the 10000 unsullied could carry you on their muscular tanned shoulders. The downside, it seems like Khaleesi’s close friends prefer not to wear any clothing…and they usually end up dead. So I’m a little hesitant, that’s why she’s in second.

 

 

1. Olivia Pope (Scandal)

kerry-washington-olivia-pope

Would be my best friend/sister for life. She’s so real and so smart, okay well she has this huge secret of having an affair with the President but I’m sure she would tell me if we were best friends. She has the best sense of style out of everyone on this list (yes even you Shoshana). She’s so popular she gets all the designer hook ups. I haven’t seen the party girl side of Olivia yet, she usually opts for the secret getaways with her President lover, but I mean- no yeah she never goes out. She does love her wine, girls night in is always fun so I guess we wouldn’t really need a DD for that. She has daddy issues- who doesn’t.

At the end of the day, if you had a problem she would come running in her Louboutins and she would fix the s*** out of them. You wouldn’t have to pay her and her lecture/rants would feel like second nature to you.

Don’t forget to comment below and let me know what you think. If we missed anyone special on our list let us know, that’s what best friends are for.

Shameless: RECAP

24 Feb

It’s been a crazy few weeks for Showtime’s Shameless. Fiona got arrested for Liam getting into her coke stash and almost killing himself. Note: the coke wasn’t hers Mike’s douchebag brother brought it over when he tried to wish Fiona a happy birthday. Now everyone is dealing with the aftermath of her arrest. Her public defendant advices her to plead guilty and get away with only three years of probation.

Before we get into that, let’s start from the beginning of the episode. First off, I was really hoping to see Mike, he did bail Fiona out which means he might still care about her, but he didn’t make an appearance last night. Ian did make an appearance, finally Mickey decided to do something about his ex-secret boyfriend. He shows up at the club Ian’s working at and tells him he needs to go home. Mickey waits for Ian outside the club, when Ian’s about to leave with a much older man, Mickey beats the guy up and tells him to f off. Ian’s all drugged up, Mickey picks him up off the ground and takes him to his house. While Ian’s lying asleep on his bed, Mickey is just looking over him, Mickey’s pregnant wife appears at the bedroom door and it’s obvious she knows what her husband is really about. Mickey is such a tough character to gage, you never know when he’s going to care and you never know when he’s going to blow up. Obviously he loves Ian but it took him a long time to accept that and to actually do something to save him.

Ian

I really don’t have a single favourite character on this show, they’re all so amazing and brilliant. I love this transformation Lip has gone through. He’s really stood up and taken the role of ‘man of the house’. He’s going to school, and he does see the importance of that, he’s just had a ton of drama to deal with at home. He expects Fiona to sort of keep up with her side of the bargain while he’s doing his thing at school, so when she screws up he’s extremely disappointed. He takes Liam with him to school, Fiona tells him she’ll take care of him but he doesn’t let that happen. Lip’s roommate’s girlfriend offers to watch Liam while Lip’s in class. Definitely a different side of her we haven’t seen, she’s always clashed with Lip, now that she sees a different side of him, we see a different side of her as well. Love that.

 

LipSchoolDebbie’s just Debbie. I love her but I don’t get how she’s friends with those girls. The pregnant one shows off her scars because she’s been cutting herself. She’s all about cooking dinner for Matt but when he gets home he reminds Deb that they’re not boyfriend and girlfriend. They can’t be, she’s way too young and he can get into a lot of trouble. He drives her home and tells her he still wants to be friends, she brushes him off by playing it cool but when she gets home she tries to cut herself! I don’t think it actually works because she just screams out in pain.

Carl is dealing with the Hanson brothers making fun of Liam. They’re calling him retarded and blaming Carl for having a retarded brother. I guess everyone knows that Liam had a coke overdose. Carl is an amazing kid, I cannot wait to see where they’re going to take his character in the upcoming seasons. He punches the Hanson bros in the face and walks off. Later, he watches Liam carefully to see if he’s actually retarded. It was the funniest thing ever. Liam is not retarded, thankfully nothing serious came out of that overdose.

CarlSchoolBus

V has a doctor’s appointment, for once Kevin doesn’t make it because he’s held at gunpoint and all his saved up cash is stolen. The doctor tells V that she’s lost one of the baby’s…this usually can happen when there’s a few babies, the stronger ones end up basically eating the weaker one. Sounds friggin’ crazy right? Later when V tells Kev, he doesn’t know how to feel. It’s sad but at the same time they’re now a baby down which will definitely make things easier for them. They literally have no money.

The only thing Frank has right now is his daughter Sammi. She’s all about taking care of him which means she’s totally okay with feeding Frank drugs to numb his pain. She gives him heroin while she goes to pick up her kid from school. Carl notices Frank on the floor of the bathroom, he pooped his pants and is unfortunately…still alive. Lip freaks out at this, at any moment the social services worker could show up and if they see Frank drugged up…it’s just won’t be a good situation. He yells at Sammi that this is all her fault, they don’t need Frank in their lives anymore, he’s her problem now. He tells her to get out of his house, Fiona agrees, and Sammi’s left dragging Frank all the way home. Later, they break into Sheila’s house (she’s away at the indian reserve) and Sammi spends the rest of her night trying to wash her dad in the shower because he can’t even stand up on his own.

Frank

Fiona, oh Fiona. This final scene of the episode where she’s in court was just done brilliantly. Fiona was debating if she should plead not guilty and go for a trial. Lip said she was crazy no jury was going to deem her innocent after hearing her story. It didn’t matter if she was innocent or this was her first criminal charge, she’s Liam’s guardian and she almost got him killed. Her lawyer said the same thing, it was too risky to leave that decision in the hands of a jury, and if she lost she would have to do 5 years in jail. On the other hand, if she pled guilty, she would have it all on her record, she would be a felon and basically the judge reads through all of these restrictions while Fiona just soaks up what her life will be like for the next 3 years.

What did you guys think of the episode? Will Frank make it to the end of the season? Will Fiona change her mind and demand a trial? Is it too late for that?
