Pop open a few bottles of Rubinoff this Sunday, because you’re gonna need them. ALL OF THEM. Yes, the Grammys are airing again on CBS, so you can expect the same level of entertainment you’ve come to expect from the network that brings you Two and a Half Men and 2 Broke Girls. And by that I mean the same quality entertainment you get when you take a dump and look at it after. This...
More drinking games soon (I hope)
Hey friends! I’ve gained a lot of followers since my hiatus after Girls, and I hope to get things running again soon because this would make a great coffee table book for people to puke on. BUT I don’t have cable, so bear with me. I’m using someone else’s Hulu Plus and hopefully that will catch me up to speed. Perhaps some games for Kitchen Nightmares, Ben & Kate and...
Am I a little bitter that Lena Dunham is my age and writing, directing and starring in her own HBO series while I drink $2 wine alone and write Tumblr blogs? Absolutely. But she’s super-talented and I LOVE THIS SHOW. It’s (mostly) real and relatable to twenty-somethings in a way that no other show has been able to capture, even in these strange times when I’m suddenly a viewer...
It’s Jess! I have a love-hate relationship with New Girl. On one hand, the writing has improved since the beginning and I genuinely enjoy the show most of the time. On the other hand, people ask me about it a lot. “A girl moves with three guys in LA after the demise of a relationship. Oh my God, it’s like your life!*” ...
Notes from Paleyfest: Mad Men
Happy St. Patty’s Day, my little Drunkerdoodles! It’s a rare crappy day in Los Angeles, so I’ll have to drink my green beers indoors today. I don’t like venturing out to bars on holidays like this anyway - I can’t handle the amateurs… or the bad music. U2 isn’t the only Irish band there is, doofuses. Thin Lizzy. Duh. As promised, I went to the Mad Men...
Parks & Recreation
Parks & Rec (now in its fourth season) just keeps getting better, mostly because its characters aren’t stagnant, one-dimensional bores. We’ve seen Leslie grow from each of her relationships, while April has evolved from sarcastic teen to slightly-less-sarcastic married woman. We’ve learned more about Ron and seen his friendship with Leslie grow, while Ann and Traeger have...
Exhaustive Notes from Paleyfest
The cast of Community at Paleyfest 2012 I do more than drink at home with my TV and laptop, dear readers (all three of you) - sometimes I venture out into the harsh, real world, because sometimes you just need to stop being polite and start getting real. I’ve spent much of the last week at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills for Paleyfest. I will tell you all about it after this side...
The 84th Annual Academy Awards!
I’m usually not one for self-congratulating Hollywood fanfare, but every year I make an exception for the Oscars. The Globes are dumb, the MTV award shows even dumber, and don’t get me started on that People’s Choice nonsense. But with the Oscars, shit gets real. These at least kind of matter, at least more so than other awards. Plus I really enjoy crushing everyone in my Oscar...
Alex Trebek would be my second choice for a dad, ranking behind my real dad and slightly ahead of Ernest or Julio Gallo. Yes, he would rank above a purveyor of fine wines like Carlo Rossi and Andre because homeboy is a genius: he knows the answer before anyone even asks the question! Pretty badass, even if he is Canadian. It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to be on Jeopardy. I completed...
1,000 Ways to Die
Back in Boston, the bar my ex frequented would have on 1,000 Ways to Die when there wasn’t a big game to watch. In going to meet up with his drunk ass every evening, I realized that this show - much like their Erotic Photo Hunt game - is addictive and kind of amazing. I’d grab a beer and stick around, trying to guess what would happen to the poor harmonica-playing dwarf (he choked on...
Super Bowl XLVI
Happy Super Bowl Sunday everyone! Finally, an excuse to gorge on crappy food and chug beer, because I totally don’t do that every weekend. And weeknight. No, today is special. I’m a New England girl, but my enthusiasm for sports has admittedly waned since I Ieft Boston for LA. Last year’s miserable Sox season was kind of the nail in the coffin. Now, like any rational person, I...
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Season 2
Ok, I admit it: I’m hooked on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I can’t stop watching this garbage even though I still don’t get how most of the women on these Housewives shows aren’t actually “housewives.” Whatevs, sign me up for the Real Housewives of Tumblr. I’ll gladly invite Bravo viewers into my 300 sq ft studio, complete with half-assembled Ikea...
TV is way more fun when you’re drinking with friends. So I’ve decided that there should be a one-stop destination on the web for TV drinking games, updated at least weekly and featuring both recent shows and cult classics. I’m even planning to throw some special events in there too, because what’s the fun in watching the Oscars sober? Stay tuned and keep your bar well...
