The holidays may be over, but the bone-chilling weather is just beginning. Thankfully, television is back and with all sorts of good excuses for you to stay in. We pulled together our seven snow day (and night!) picks from all the new and returning shows this month. Fear not: There are no live broadcasts of outdated musicals in your immediate future, but there are a whole lot of awesome boob tube moments you’ll love. Hindsight, series premiere (Vh1 January ...

Like all awards shows, the Golden Globes can get a little slow—so we got together a list of our top moments for you (just in case you fell asleep with a glass of champagne on your lap and missed'em). Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kicked off the Golden Globes for their third year in a row with gorgeous dresses and hilarious celebrity digs. The duo showed their feminist side in the show’s opening monologue, when they pointed out the absurdity of George ... Read More
Jill Soloway is starting a revolution—and from the looks of last night's Golden Globes, she's totally nailing it: Transparent took home a well-deserved award for Best TV Comedy or Musical Series. Though the category was pleasantly packed with feminist fare (four of the five programs nominated center around women!) we were thrilled to see Soloway's show come out ahead. If you haven't yet seen her acceptance speech, it deserves a slice of your day (try not to ... Read More
We'll give you a second to mentally process this idea before you scroll down to the image. Take it all in: you're about to see Steve Buscemi look like a babe. We're not saying there isn't a certain sexiness to him now, but Buscemi is more of an acquired taste than a generic hottie at this point. Just wait. Those piercing blue eyes are about to transcend his most unsettling roles, and remind you of a time that was much simpler: when Buscemi was just a kid leaning ... Read More
  In honor of Portlandia’s 5th season premiere tonight (and for having our favorite feminist bookstore owners, Toni and Candace, kick things off with what's sure to be hilarious sketch) we pulled together a round-up of  top moments from past seasons. From the duo's uber-local chicken escapades to Gathy’s murderous obsession with the band Catnap, there are just too many gloriously strange Portlandia instances to count—but hey, sometimes ...

Thanks to this site, it’s getting easier to find out whether or not movies pass the Bechdel test. If you’re not familiar with it already, the test simply asks whether a movie has two female characters who talk to each other at least once about something other than a man. Sounds simple, right? You’d be surprised how many of your favorites fail (A Christmas Story, Elf, Home Alone, Rudolph…) But in the Christmas spirit, let’s focus on ... Read More
Last week, Sean Hannity went on his show on Fox News to discuss the meeting between New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and rapper/mogul/husband to Beyonce, Jay Z. Strangely enough, Hannity doesn’t introduce Jay Z how we would best know him, but as “A guy that admits that he sold crack and was a drug dealer and actually shot somebody." Luckily, Jon Stewart and Jessica Williams exist to call out Hannity on his bullshit — and they did just that in last ... Read More
Whether it’s a carton of chocolate ice cream at 2am or instant oatmeal from a coffee mug before work, we’ve all been there. Either we're too busy or too lazy to bring our dish of leftover Thai fried rice from the kitchen to the couch. Instead, we fumble and flail around our tiny kitchens forking at our lukewarm spaghetti, and the only thing you’re doing that resembles manners is sticking your chin out over the sink to avoid getting marinara sauce ...

To begin, she forgets the word “lexicon.” Renowned linguistics professor, wife, and mother of three grown children, Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) grapples with losing her words to the cruel chaos of Early-Onset Alzheimer’s. Still Alice, poised to be a brutal exposition, and an Oscar vehicle for Moore, is polished but forgettable. The Howland family dynamics remain superficial whether fault lies in the acting, script, or characters themselves. ... Read More
