I tend to take it hard when my favorite characters get killed off, especially when it happens in a sudden or crazy fashion.
house of cards
SPOILERS AHEAD. Do NOT click if you haven't binge watched House of Cards Season 2. Also, are we concerned about binge watching as a new pastime? Also: Spoilers.

lifetime movie
This week's hard hitting look at the Acclaimed-by-No-One, No-One's-Waiting-Up-on-Oscar-Nomination-Morning Lifetime movie, "Lizzie Borden Took an Ax." And by hard hitting, I mean FILL UP YOUR GLASSES AND LET THE DRINKING GAME BEGIN.
sesame street
I missed the diversity and acceptance of being surrounded by other cultures, so I was glad to be able to watch "Sesame Street" and feel that sense of belonging.
the style con
In addition to its delightful campiness and an incomparable performance by the one and only Jessica Lange, this show has all its fashion archetypes covered in every 60-minute bloodbath.

The 2013 Emmys -- did you watch? (No shame.) If so, feel free to weigh in on this open thread/live blog and tell us what you thought of all the pretty dresses, awkward moments and "Breaking Bad" wins.
crime shows
I realized recently that all the strong female characters on my favorite crime shows and police procedurals tend to have major PROBLEMS.
Luckily, you have me to weed through the bullshit and find all the precious fat-positive entertainment jewels available for your streaming pleasure, because they DO EXIST.

He's also a farting hot dog. Do I have great taste in men or what?
Sure the WGA is all official and smart, but they left "90210" off of the list, so I'm not sure we can trust them.
