I just watched 3 minutes of Ilana Glazer rolling around a floor in bubble wrap and then smashing her face into a cake. I know you are probably thinking, "Why the hell would you watch that?" Well personally I will watch anything Glazer does, as a huge fan of her Comedy Central show Broad City. The show itself started off as a web series created by Glazer and co-star Abbi Jacobson about two girls living a hysterically real and yet completely absurd life in Brooklyn. Produced by Amy Poehler, Broad City is the love child of Girls and Workaholics that I never knew I needed. Read More
Julia Louis-Dreyfus appears on the most recent cover of Rolling Stone Magazine wearing nothing but the preamble of the U.S Constitution - and perhaps a little more. Despite the misprinted John Hancock signature sitting right above Louis-Dreyfus's luminescent derriere, the image itself is rather shocking. At first I was a bit skeptical about the productiveness of Louis-Dreyfus's unexpected nudity, especially the photograph of a white-wigged fellow tattooing her lower back. Read More
I might be one of the few millennials still paying for cable instead of Hulu-ing all my faves, but if you are a part of my so yesterday cable club, you might have also noticed that smart girls seem to be appearing in commercials with increasing frequency. I noticed this trend after seeing this commercial for Coffee-mate creamer. This little lady shames  a grown-ass man. 1. Coffee-mate Girl Scout Creamer Commercial  2. Read More
It's no secret that we're big fans of Amy Schumer, and we're freaking out over this new preview for her hilarious show, Inside Amy Schumer, which will return for a second season on April 1 at 10:30/9:30c on Comedy Central. I personally can't stop watching the 2-minute clip, and it's just serving to make me impatient for the amazingness that's in store for the new season. Read More
The episode begins with a cheeky shoutout to the world of Wes Anderson: a montage of Marnie preparing a spooky-yet-eleganza beachside manse for a girls-only weekend, complete with a banana-yellow title frame and chipper, and Tenenbaums-y strings in the background. It’s already clear that shit’s gonna get weird. Now settled in that strange place where quirk meets melancholy, the crew arrives. Jessa has decided to ride in the back of the bus “for political reasons. Read More

The old-as-time question of the feminist killjoy: Should I be enjoying this? I’ve found the answer is, typically, not really. Unless of course it’s 30 Rock, or Wanda Sykes standup. Girl Code is the MTV show that echoes VH1’s I Love the 80’s/90's in set-up and production. The show provides a litany of interview sound bytes from a variety of funny women, and a couple of dudes for “the male perspective.” *eye roll* What can be celebrated about this show is the unabashed women-centered and sometimes self-empowering conversation.

In "things that should have happened ten years ago but are just happening now" news, Saturday Night Live has finally auditioned black female cast members.  When Kerry Washington hosted last month, the writers addressed the long-standing issue with a tongue-in-cheek statement about the show being a white-guy-fest, but actions speak louder than words--and action there was not! But now it's being revealed that a sold-out showcase in Los Angeles last weekend was, in fact, an SNL hunt for a black female comedian to add to the cast. Read More
The Netherlands is pretty high on the list of countries getting it right. Their TV channel "Dusk!" is also pretty high on their list of things they are getting right. Dusk! (Aren't you glad they included the exclamation point?) is a "female-friendly erotic channel" where all of the programming is decided upon by a panel of 2,000 women. Any woman can join the panel, which reviews content and provide explanation about what they liked and didn't like. Read More
November 23, 2013 will be a day forever fixed in time and space for Doctor Who fans--or Whovians, as they affectionately call themselves. Saturday the 23rd marked the 50th anniversary of the dearly beloved and longest running sci-fi show of all time.  Such a special occasion was this that at precisely 2:50 P.M. (EST), the show was simulcast in theaters across 80 countries. For those who love the time lord and his Tardis (the blue police box he travels in), it was an event as spectacular as Christmas, your birthday, and the Super Bowl all rolled into one. Read More
