This month’s TV Addictions

15 Jul

 

It’s been a while but we are back in action with this month’s TV addictions.

Keeping Up with The Kardashians

Okay so many of you might be rolling your eyes at this title but this season of KUWTK has been pretty decent. Our personal favourite Kardashian is Khloe, so it’s no surprise that we’re tuning in when homegirl is having issues at home. All the Lamar drama is coming out in the current season, and with the recent episode it’s 100% certain Lam cheated on Khloe.

She admits to having to lie about everything, she had to give up her Yonce tickets to pretend like her and Lamar were spending the night together for their anniversary. In reality, she was alone at home and he was probably out f***** some girl. I really thought Lamar was one of the good guys, it’s scary to see what he’s turned into. It’s easy for people to throw fire at the Kardashian clan, but Khloe has always been the realest, and there’s no denying what’s been going on with her and Lamar.

Khloek

While Lamar is overseas playing for some basketball team, one of his buddies messages Khloe asking her if they’re still together because Lamar is wearing his wedding ring. Khloe screams at her phone ‘F**k your ring, you were wearing it when you were f**king someone else too’ Ouch.

Also, for the girls that are BJ crazy, Brody has been making a few appearances this season so tune in for that. Next week is the first part of the two-part episode for their Thailand family vacation. Sadly, I don’t think my man Robert tags along.

Masters of Sex

Okay so I’ve heard so many good things about this show but never actually sat down to watch it. I’m 3 episodes into the first season and it’s a really good show. It’s definitely not mind blowing, but if you’re suffering from summer TV withdrawals, then this show might do it for you. Literally, there is sex everywhere.

Ray Donovan

My night in a beautiful bespoke suit is back! Liev Schreiber returns as the dashingly violent Ray Donovan on Showtime (Sundays at 9pm). This show completely surprised me last year, I ended up watching the entire first season in under a week, and it’s back with an all new season. It’s starts off with a bang, he literally bangs the poop out of his wife, so does this mean he’s become emotionally available? Or he’s still the same Ray. Look, I have no problem with the current Ray, honestly he is the sexiest thing ever so keep doing what you’re doing RayRay. If you haven’t checked out this show, please do. It’s a cross between Entourage and Scandal. So good!

The Leftovers

O-M-G the show of the summer has finally arrived. There is something to be said about this spine chilling new series on HBO. Starring Justin Theroux and Liv Tyler (to name a few) takes place in the wake of a global “rapture” which causes the unexplainable disappearance of 2% of the world population. The show takes place in small town America, focusing on the people that were left behind. It’s such a beautiful show, it will definitely sweep you away after the first few minutes. Just beware, you have to be emotionally ready for the hour long episodes, it’s only 3 episodes in so you still have time to catch up.

Those are just some of the shows we have waiting for us on the PVR, summer might be halfway through but there is still a whole lot of entertainment out there. You just need the really expensive TV subscriptions.

Now just a caution, it is summer, we want everyone to enjoy the weather as much as possible because it won’t last forever. Save these shows for a rainy day, but once you start you won’t be able to stop. You’ve been warned.

Who Won The Challenge: Free Agents?

27 Jun

I can’t believe it’s already the day after the finale! Seems like just yesterday we were talking about the premiere, but it’s done, we have our winners…and we’re not that surprised.

wINNERS

Taking first place for the guys is none other than Johnny Bananas- what is it like his 5th win or something?

And for the girls, this wasn’t a surprise at all- Laurel. (Beating Nany by only 9 minutes)

Although the winners didn’t have me fooled, the other finalists continued to shock me throughout the episode. Rookie Johnny came in second?? That’s amazing! He definitely surprised me, but after watching last night’s finale you can tell he has such a great spirit, and how cute was he with partner Devyn??

So the two Johnny’s took 1st and 2nd place, which left Zach in third but in my toughest opinion, he didn’t deserve to be there. Imagine this finale with CT!?!? Um the results would’ve been completely different. The two Johnny’s were so lucky that Zach sucked so bad. He could barely move blaming his body for crampin up. When he was teamed up with Laurel he was crying out that he wanted to give up, she refused. And then he goes on to call her ‘stupid’ and a ‘bitch’, how old are you? Meanwhile Rookie Johnny’s over there like speaking to Devyn in a soft boice telling her to ‘gently jump into his arms, he’ll catch her’ so cute. In the end Zach did admit that the challenge ‘humbled’ him in a way, because he just assumed he was going to win it all. So that was kinda cool.

In my opinion, all three girls deserved to win, all of them are badass bitches, they are each in their own way the true definition of a ‘heroine’. I wasn’t really waiting to see who would win first, I wanted to see if everyone was going to cross the finish line! Mostly Devyn, because Nany and Laurel were neck and neck for most of the race.

Devyn has been the funniest part of this season, she was constantly making us laugh, so of course we want to see her win some cash! Obvi, girls gotta get a new wig! Devyn came in third, but she surprised everyone with her determination and heart. In the end, once everyone had crossed the finish line except for Devyn, they cut back to her and it looked like she literally was still at the bottom of the mountain! I don’t know how she did it, I don’t know how anyone did it, all I know is I can’t wait to watch the next one! Oh and when are we going to see TJ doing one of these??

What we learned from this season of MTV’s The Challenge: Free Agents?

If you’re going to do a challenge, change your name to Johnny.

HERNAMEISBANKS and she’s killing it.

12 Jun

She’s a Goddess and she definitely got this.

As she stands on stage and sings her soul out to the audience of Toronto’s The Hoxton, we can’t help but be bewitched by this tiny girl with haunting lyrics and a hypnotic voice. Some people say she looks like a witch, with her ‘all-black everything’ wardrobe and flowy black cape. But, realistically this girl is a modern day heroine. If you haven’t checked out her music, you’re absolutely missing out. She’s a genius and I love The Weeknd for introducing us to a talent that won’t be fading away anytime soon.

Her performance on June 10th at The Hoxton lasted for about an hour, she sang two encore songs, and still had the audience wanting more. Not too crazy about the venue, but she was hauntingly vibrant on stage and I can’t wait to hear more music from this girl.

Check out our video from her performance and check out @hernameisbanks  and her YouTube page for all her music.

 

 

 

Tyrion: Dead or Alive?

2 Jun

—SPOILER ALERT—

So I don’t want to be the source of all spoilers, but come on guys. It’s episode 8 of the fourth season you should be watching these episodes ON THE IMMEDIATE. Every second counts until the end.

In a typical Game of Thrones jaw dropping ending, the Prince of Dorne aka The Red Viper aka Prince Oberyn lost the battle against Ser Gregor “The Mountain” in a grueling battle that determined the fate of Tyrion Lannister. At first everyone’s thinking the same thing, how can this little Prince of Dorne fight the huge and covered in armour Ser Gregor Clegane? Well, surprisingly, Oberyn was more confident, he was fast and doing twirls around The Mountain. For the most part of the fight it looked like Oberyn was about to win. He even shoved his spear right through Gregor’s belly, but Oberyn let his guard down too quickly…and this happened.

Now the big question is, what will happen to Tyrion? Is this the end of the road for him? I feel like this can’t be the end but with Game of Thrones you just never know- we’ll have to wait and see. For now, let’s take it to the polls!

 

Drake and Nicki Minaj

2 Jun

Starting off the week right! New Drake track dropped last night check it out.

Also, Drake sparked rumours on Saturday night with back to back Nicki Minaj pictures on his Instagram account. Um, what? Nicki opens up about Drake. in an interview with Hot 97′s Funkmaster Flex last year.

“Drake’s so talented,” she said. “Sometimes, we’ve seen this. Sometimes when you’re really intelligent and you’re really talented, you also think a lot. Sometimes your mind is racing with thoughts. It is what it is. People go through their own motions and you’ve gotta respect it and keep it moving. We all love the team. We all love Wayne. That’s what’s gonna always hold us together. Drake is my baby because that’s how it was when we came in. So whenever I think of him, ‘That’s my baby.’

“Whatever is going on now, obviously we’re all very busy and you know, sh– happens,” she added. “It gets a little hard to have a real connection when people are on different sides of the world, working on different things. You just never know who people got in their ear or what they’re feeling or maybe they felt wronged in some way. I don’t know. I just know that Drake is my baby and Wayne is my everything.”

She also said that ‘running off and marrying Drake’ would be her ultimate fantasy. But for now, they have their back and forth lyrical innuendos and on stage performances…all that mixed with a little RiRi (she’s close friends with the two)- this might get a little cray.

Check out Nicki’s performance this past weekend on the Summer Jam stage with Drake.

 

The Challenge: Hold That Pose RECAP

30 May

We’re past the halfway point of this season’s MTV The Challenge: Free Agents. This season has proved to be a challenging one especially, since every contestant is on their own, being thrown with random teams/pairs every week for different challenges. It might seem like they’re in the safety of a team, but then the weekly challenge finishes and it’s obvious that everyone should be thinking on their own, because ultimately there will only be one winner.

 

Eliminated: Preston & Aneesa

 

If you missed the craziness check out our slideshow from last night’s episode.

The Challenge: You Got Swerved

23 May

Two things: Shout out to LeRoy for being beyond hilarious this episode. And #2 thank you Jordan for instigating some crazy entertaining ish this week.

Let’s quickly recap this week’s episode of The Challenge: Free Agents.

KillCard

After weeks of ‘ish-talking’ to Johnny Bananas, Jordan finally gets the chance to face JB in an elimination round. He loses the challenge on purpose, putting him into the draw (the player that chooses the kill card has to face Johnny Bananas). So he tells his Real World:Portland roomie Johnny (not Bananas) that he should vote in Bananas, and then Jordan will just pick all the cards until he gets the kill card. He’s a man of his word and he’s promised to be the one to kick JB out of the house. Literally, CT and LeRoy were a laughing wreck the entire time this was going down.

For the girls, I love Laurel and Emily but legitimately they need to be in their own division. It needs to be…Guys/Girls and Emily & Laurel. They’re just, they have it all. Brains and Brawn and that’s not a bad thing…well it is for the other girls because like Jonna? Jasmine? They stand no chance.

Anyways, Laurel wins another challenge (Cara was a close second) but Laurel gets to choose whose going into eliminations and she chooses Aneesa. And then- Jonna chooses the kill card- and then Aneesa beats Jonna- and Jonna’s going home. See how easy that was?

Okay back to the guys!! Jordan lifts all 3 cards and obviously unveils the kill card. TJ, CT, Cara everyone’s going crazy because they can’t believe he just did that. It looked like it was a close game for a few seconds, and then Jordan made a huge mistake and loses his step, falling down the wall giving Johnny all the time in the world to ring that bell. I have to say, I’ve never wanted Bananas to win so badly. I think it was time for Jordan to swallow his big boy words and leave like a man. In the end, Jordan admits $125k is a lot of money, but his pride is worth more. It was a smart move in a way, he literally did the most unheard of thing in Challenge history, so producers will definitely be calling him up for future shows. I don’t doubt he’ll win some money some day. Now that Jordan’s gone…what will Laurel do?

Maybe she’ll take up designing flower arrangements?

Happy Friday! Enjoy…

Game of Thrones: Game on!

21 May

The Eyrie

Just a friendly reminder that there’s no new episode of Game of Thrones this Sunday- new episodes will resume June 1 (we’re already on the 8th episode!!) Yikes, don’t kill the messenger. Do kill everyone on Arya’s wish list.

So last Sunday’s episode was brilliant, they’re all brilliant and special to watch but this episode was definitely one for the script writing books. The scene between Littlefinger and Sansa was amazing. When she walks out into the courtyard and there’s snow everywhere, suddenly it takes her back to Winterfell and she feels like a little girl again. Unfortunately, for her she’s not at Winterfell, pretty much her entire family is dead, and she has to live with the most annoying child ever. After her younger cousin smashes her snow castle, she smacks the boy up and it’s the closest we’ve seen Sansa become a more “Sassier Sansa”. We love it. Then, as the little boy runs off Littlefinger makes an entrance (how handsome did he look?) and he tells Sansa everything will be alright. She’s literally standing in front of the smartest man in the Game of Thrones realm (Khaleesi’s the smartest woman, duh).

He tells Sansa (paraphrasing), if the world was more about love than war and poltiics, she would probably be his daughter. Because he would’ve married her mother. But they don’t live in that world so it’s time to make out! He totally grabs Sansa and kisses her after telling her she’s more beautiful than her mother. Okay, this ish just got weird. He did kill Lysa later on so even though he might be vergring on pedophile status, we still think he’s the smartest man ever.

King’s Landing

This scene between Tyrion and the Prince of Dorne was my favourite of the night. Take a look.
