A Thousand and One NOs

BY Intern Kerishma in TV

Like many Indian-Americans, I grew up watching Bollywood movies. I would sometimes try to get my non-Desi friends to watch the glitzy, musical-number laden films, to mixed responses. But I was overjoyed when the films that were so near and dear to my heart caught the American public’s attention – with the Academy Award nomination for the epic Lagaan (English: Land Tax) in 2001, and the “Jai Ho” fervor in the wake of Slumdog ...

In the interest of not burying the lede, let me just get it out there now: Willam threw up on the runway last night. Yep, a drag queen threw up on the runway, during the judging, immediately after she had been declared the winner of this week’s challenge. It was one of the weirdest things to ever happen on RuPaul’s Drag Race, until five minutes later when Ru announced who had to sashay away. Nothing else in the episode even seems relevant in light of ... Read More
I forget that men are also affected by the culture that preaches coupling and romance over single life. Though the statistics are proving that we—lady and boy—Americans are living la vida solo more and more, our cultural anxieties to find “the one” and to be in a “together” has not stopped.  And that is where New York based comedian/actor/writer Rob Michael Hugel comes in. He takes the deep neurosis of a young, single, ... Read More
  NBC’s Community is finally returning to its original time slot on NBC tonight. Even better, the newest episode, “Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts” will feature another guest appearance by Malcom-Jamal Warner as Shirley’s estranged husband. Aside from being a smart, well-acted, complex sitcom that makes me spit-take during every episode, Community’s cast and creator have been vocal about having a writing staff full of women. ...

On Monday night, comedian/actress Jane Lynch tried her hand at celebrity-interviewing when she filled in on Piers Morgan Tonight. Aside from making me wish she hosted a talk show on CNN instead of panders-to-women Piers Morgan, she interviewed Joan Rivers, and together (after Rivers admitted, of politicians, that she “hates them all”) they touched on certain issues in politics today. Specifically, the egregious amount of time politicians spend ... Read More
Early into last night’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, something crossed my mind that I almost dare not speak aloud. During the mini challenge, as the queens were throwing shade at one another and nearly all of them were terrible at it, this thought started forming. Today I will get out my library card (because reading is fundamental), and throw some of my own shade: maybe none of these queens are actually worthy of the title of America’s Next ... Read More

It's a Mad World

BY Intern Kerishma in TV

Restock your liquor cabinets and bust out your favorite bouffant hairdo, because Mad Men returns to TV on March 25! AMC’s mega hit has been in off-season for over a year, and the wait for season 5 has been unbearable. Thankfully, AMC recently released several fantastic promotional photos of the cast to tide us over until then! Speaking as a huge fan, the photos and teaser promo videos that AMC has been releasing do not disappoint; the impeccable ... Read More
I don’t know about you, fellow Game of Thrones fans, but I’m going crazy waiting for Season 2 to kick off. Lucky for me, HBO released this fantastically chilling promo a few days ago, set to “Seven Devils” by (BUST’s “Women Who Rock” cover girl) Florence + The Machine. Enjoy! You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video Season 2 of Game of Thrones premieres Sunday, April 1 on ... Read More
Here in America (and if you’re an international reader, I imagine this is probably true where you live too), we have a basic expectation that our spouse or romantic partner will treat us with respect. That means that we have a right to expect both our physical bodies and our emotional and mental attributes to be given the consideration they deserve. More than that, we believe that everyone in the world—male or female, regardless of their outward and ... Read More
Reality shows, like war, can turn heroes into villains and villains into heroes. One day you’re a model soldier being considered for general, the next you’re going rogue and hiding out in the jungle. One day everybody hates you for being a loud alcoholic, then you get punched in the face and you're queen of the shore house. This week on RuPaul's Drag Race, Willam, heretofore the great villain of Season Four, dropped so many one-liners and rocked the ... Read More
