10 YEARS OF KARDASHIAN GIFS!

We are fully aware that at any given moment when there’s a tsunami of Kardashian stories, it’s not the stormy sign of the end of the world, it’s just the dramatic premiere week of a new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Whether you hate them, love to hate them, or even really love them, you still know who they are, what they’re doing, who they’re doing, which one is pregnant, and most importantly, you’ve probably used one of their iconic gifs at least once in your life. And if you’re not ‘gif-ing’ than you’re not really living. So in honour of the 10th anniversary of KUWTK premiere week we’ve gathered our favourite gifs:

11. Kim Should Do Playboy

kuwtk-krishair

Because why not start off the 10-year anniversary by honouring the woman that basically started it all. Kris Jenner circa Kate Gosselin type A hairdo – nothing would get in the way of Kris selling off her daughter(s) whichever way she knew how. Besides if there was a sex tape how bad could Playboy be?

 

 

10. The Kylie Jenner

kuwtk-kylie

 

The Kylie Jenner – sounds like something you can order online. LOL, I’m just going to let this one speak for itself.

 

 

 

9. The Unbreakable Kimmy Glare

kuwtk-kimlook

So just to warn everyone, there will be a lot of Kim reactions on this list. Not much can be said for what comes out of Kim’s mouth, but she does offer up herself to some great gif’s. This mischievous grin is one of my favourite go-to-gifs to use. Also, it’s a throwback to the original seasons when the sisters had nowhere else to go but work and chat at their DASH store in Calabasas. I feel like Kim was cooler back then, and when I say cooler I mean more entertaining. And when I say entertaining I really mean obliviously stupid.

8. The Beginning of All Selfie’s

kuwtk-selfies

Like I said, Kim was so much cooler back then. She was taking selfies when selfies weren’t even a thing! Kim really did master the art of the selfie. Can you imagine how difficult it must’ve been trying to take a selfie in the back of the van while dropping your sister off for her jail sentence? Like the lighting probably sucked in there.

7. The Only Way to Deal

kuwtk-krisdrink

Kris Jenner realizing the only way she could get through her crazy life was to knock a few back. And remember, this was pre-Caitlin Jenner. So like, wtf did she do when that sh** hit the fan?

 

6. Khloe – “The Jealous One”

kuwtk-psycho

This is one of my favourite scenes of the entire series, so I had to have it on my list. It’s the episode when Kim finally gets to buy her Bentley and so she takes it to an auto shop to get it detailed. But when she’s on her way to pick up the car her and Khloe get into a major fight – I don’t even remember what it was about. But Kim get’s so upset at her, claiming Khloe is just jealous that Kim could afford a Bentley, it’s just one of those moments where you really see how the fame and money starts trifling with the sisterhood. Khloe’s all like “I don’t need a Bentley to feel cool you shallow biatch” And honestly, even to this day, I feel like this moment really is a testament to their sometimes not-so-friendly relationship.

4. “I Literally Can’t Even”

kuwtk-literally

I don’t even remember where this scene was from, but it’s just so Kourtney. The one that literally starts every sentence with ‘I could literally…’

3. I Miss the Old Kanye

kuwtk-kanye

I don’t think this was even on the show, but this gif had me dying, it’s so Kanye, and it’s so Kim. There’s no wonder why they’re soul mates, they are literally in love with themselves. It’s funnier as it keeps looping.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. 72 Day Marriage

kuwtk-married

We all know Kim has an ugly cry face, even Kourtney talks about it in one of the episodes, but seeing her cry live in action was one of the funniest moments of the series. I’m sorry, I know this was a horrific time for her, but for some reason this moment was more comedic than sad. I mean we know the reason why, it’s because everyone knew the marriage was a sham before Kim even knew. Not before Kris though, Kris knew that sh** was doomed from the start but all she saw was dolla dolla bills yall. By the time the episode aired, fans were over mourning the relationship/marriage and so all that was left to do was just laugh about it. I can guarantee you Kim’s laughing at it to because she made a ton of cash on that episode.

1. Eyeroll Queen

kuwtk-eyeroll

The greatest eye roll in the history of eye rolls. I honestly think people love using this not just because of the dramatic eye roll, but because of how ratchet Kim looks. I’m not even hating, it was like 2008 or something so the makeup is all very questionable, and forgivable because they didn’t have a glam squad back then.

But for real guys, we’re not about bashing females here, we’re fans of the Kardashian’s and recognize they’ve done a lot for different causes over the years. They are also super fun to laugh at, they’ve been on TV for 10 years, they should know there’s going to be a little shade here and there. Send us your favourite Kardashian meme/gifs. Also, don’t forget to watch the new season this Sunday on E!

BROAD CITY: Episode 2 “Twaining Day”

The second episode of Broad City’s season four brought us some more laughs. Let’s break down the funniest moments from the episode.

Abbi’s New Job/Boss

BC-wanda sykes.png

If you thought Abbi working at Soulstice was funny, well get ready because Abbi’s got a new job at GRAPHIX. The best part though is her new boss played by the Queen of comedy Wanda Sykes. Did you know there was such a thing as organic cat litter? Neither did Abbi. Good luck on the new job girl!

Ilana’s New Job

BC-tonya

Since the girls are back on their grind, Ilana is also down for the hustle and stumbles into Sex and the City famed hotspot SushiSamba. The manager is played by another Qwayn – RuPaul. The on screen dialogue between these two will have you on the floor – dead. When Ilana (accidentally) causes her coworker to trip, Ru takes it as Ilana being her rude ass self and loves her for it. He then titles her after Tonya Harding (the figureskater that was accused of attacking another figureskater). Thus Ilana was named ‘Other Tonya’

The Mysterious Tin Foil

BC-tin foil

Just when you thought Ilana couldn’t get any crazier, she finishes her lunch/dinner and goes to toss out the tin foil in a nearby garbage can. But as she walks away, she stops dead in her tracks and turns around to look at the pile of dump as if the tin foil was calling out to her. She retrieves the little piece of garbage and continues using it for the remainder of the episode. She sneaks away during her shift at SushiSamba to unravel the aluminum and gives herself a pep talk by talking to this piece of trash. She takes advice from this piece of tinfoil which apparently is reminding her that she isn’t really a mean person. This is obviously a big inside joke and I hope find out what’s really going on as the season unfolds. No pun intended.

The Mysterious Package

BC-trainer

When a package Abby ordered online gets delivered to the Soulstice gym, she shows up trying to hide from her ex Trey, but a Twain sighting soon has her losing her marbles. Also this cutout killed me.

The Pretty Little Liar

BC-PLL

Like all good friends should do, calling out your friend when she is acting like a complete loony tune is very necessary. When Abbi calls Ilana freaking out that she is literally looking at Shania Twain at the gym, (the person she claimed she had been ‘twaining’ since season one episode one), Ilana doesn’t believe a word she’s saying. But the funniest part is, this is coming from the craziest of them all. Ilana calls Abbi crazy!? What universe are we living in??

Twaining Twain

BC-twaining twain

Little did Ilana know, Abbi was telling the truth. Shania Twain was legitimately training with Trey! So what does Abbi do? She begs Trey to let her train Shania Twain with him, and we all know how bad Trey wants Abbi’s booty so he cannot deny her of this. Also, Shania is not down to even exercise for a second, she’s trying to get out of every single position, until Trey and Abbi offer to show her the movements. Then it gets pretty dirty between the two exes, and Shania’s just sitting there like enjoying the views. Can we just mention here that Shania was freakin’ hilarious!

Ten Reactions You Have While Watching ‘This Is Us’

The new season of NBC’s hit drama This Is Us premieres its second season on September 26th at 9pm. We had to round up all the feels we had watching the first season, most likely we will be crying a ton more in the second so get ready.

10. The Pilot Surprise

Getting that goody goody baby baby surprise shocker at the end of the pilot episode was one of the best twists. TIU_top10I’m sure everyone had the same feeling of “Noooo Waaay!”  because it was this baby surprise shocker that basically mic dropped to the rest of the season. It was a special twist, a beautiful one at that, and kudos to the writers because it was written perfectly.

9. Kate’s “I WANT TO LIVE NOW” Speech

TIU_top99

Sounded like something Oprah would be screaming out, but coming from Kate we’ll take it any day! Girl you got this, and we stand by you every step of the way!

 

8. William Will Die

TIU_top9

We were all up for Randall finding his real daddy, there was some excitement and we were so happy for him! . And then of course, the bomb drops right quick. His dad is not only apologetic for never being in Randall’s life, but he’s all like also I’m dying and then we’re left wondering for the rest of the season if this is the episode that William dies in.

7. Jack and Rebecca Marital Problems

TIU_top8

Literally at the core of this show is Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia playing Rebecca and Jack. Seeing them on screen together fills your heart with joy, lifts your soul, and makes you believe in the power of love. But dang, when they started having relationship problems, you’re like hold up wait life doesn’t make sense anymore.

6. Grandma Mandy

TIU_top7

Like I said before, Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia are the core of this show, they are the glue that keeps everyone together, and all that cheesy ish. But when they start trifling with Jack and Rebecca’s story timeline we were left scratching our heads. The first time it happens, Rebecca rolls up to Randall’s doorstep lookin’ like her future ass self and we’re just like O-M-G who dis bish be and where is Jack??

6.The Push Ups

TIU_pushups.gifPush ups never looked so good. But seriously, this is one of the most memorable moments written into the season. It really is a scene that embraces everything that makes This Is Us the successful show that it is. It’s such a small moment in their lives, but the feelings it leaves us with will carry on forever. That is what they call TV gold.

TIU_Top6

 

5.Finding out Jack is Dead

TIU_Top5

You start piecing things together through the season, wondering why Jack isn’t in the present with his grown up children, and then Kate coming through and telling Toby the urn she watches football with on Sundays contains the ashes of her late father. You’re like, no, no, you’re lying Kate. You are a liar!

3.Kate’s Pool Day

giphy (5)

I don’t care if you’re skinny, curvy, thick, long legged, heavy flow day, or burnt to a crisp day, every woman has experienced the dreaded pool day. Who doesn’t love fun in the sun? But sometimes, when you’re not feeling your inner Yonce, you’re just not down for a swim sesh. This moment was all of us reaching out to Kate and being like we feel you girl – ignore those bitchy bully’s and get wet!

2. Jack Doing Vogue

TIU_Top2

As if you couldn’t love Milo Ventimiglia playing Jack daddy any more, he comes through once again for his little girl. When nobody shows up for Kate’s Madonna themed birthday party, daddy Jack keeps her company and basically begs Kate to teach him how to Vogue. #Zaddy

 

1.Jack’s Funeral

TIU_top1

The best part of Jack’s funeral is that I didn’t even let myself watch it. This was everyone’s dreaded episode the entire season, I could barely hear them talk about Jack being dead, let alone getting my soul through his funeral scene. Maybe one day, but not today.

BROAD CITY: Top 10 Funny Moments from the Season Premiere!

THE GIRLS ARE BACK. No, not the HBO Girls, no not the girls from Pretty Little Liars either, the girls – the Broad City girls! It’s been too long, Game of Thrones is gone for basically forever, so thank the TV Gods because Abbi and Ilana are coming through at the perfect time.

Here we break down the Top 10 Funniest Moments from the season four premiere. Let us know and comment below if we missed anything!

10. The first time (and hopefully the last) Trump makes it into an episode

trump bus.png

We know the Broad City girls were rooting for HRC on and off the show. I’m sure some of their best jokes had to be rewritten following the surprising outcome of the presidential election. Here’s to hoping this is the only time we ever see or hear about Trump in this season.

9. The Oprah Tramp Stamp

oprah tramp stamp.png

You get a tat! You get a tat! Everyone gets a tramp stamp! Not everyone, but Abbi sure did. During this very informative flashback episode we also find out how and why Abbi got the Oprah tramp stamp. It was 2011 and Oprah was just about to finish her television show, I guess Abbi was feeling nostalgic about it. Do you booboo.

8. 2011 Bevers Edition

bevers

So one of the funniest moments of this flashback episode is seeing Bever’s who we’ve always known as the couch potato boyfriend of her roommate who eats all of Abbi’s food, and just basically overstays his welcome. But here we see that in 2011, he was actually freakin’ hot! And he was all down for boundaries and sharing space with Abbi, but she was the one who insisted he make himself feel right at home – all the damn time! She has nobody to blame but herself! This was hilarious.

7. 2011 Ilana Hair

ilana hair tho

2011 Ilana did not have curly hair. 2011 Ilana used to spend 2 hours in front of the mirror straightening her hair, until one day she met Abbi who told her she looked like Rosie Perez with her natural curls, and thus began the transition!

 

6. Ilana’s reaction to everything, but also her roommates PowerPoint presentation

powerpooint reaction

Ilana’s basic ass roommates are tired of her weird antics, and they’ve put together a very creative PowerPoint presentation, and her reaction to their distaste of her natural curly hair is hilarious. Her face just kills me.

 

5. The Thrupple

thrupple

The Thrupple conversation just made us revaluate our entire life, because it was 2011 and Barack and Michelle Obama were the leaders of the free world.

 

 

4. La Queefa

It seems like Ilana is working a new job every episode, and that’s probably because she is. She is literally a lazy piece of cray cray. She gets fired from her job at the Grey Dog cafe, and when her manager calls her a thief, she fires back by protesting that he just called her a ‘queef’ and that he was basically sexually harassing her. Girl bye.

queef or thief

3. The Ponytail Bandit

As if the world wasn’t an already scary place to live in, now all of us rockin’ that high ponytail look need to be on the watch for the snipper! Seriously, one of the funniest moments ever, seeing that creepy bald man slowly lurk on Abbi and snip her pony right off her head! She’s then stuck with the funniest hairdo for the rest of the episode.

ponytail

2.Ilana’s shoes and sock combo

Literally every time this girl was on screen I couldn’t help but just stare at those those hideous shoes. To make matters worse, she’s wearing them with socks, girl I cannot! All I hear in my head is “what are thooose?”

IlanasShoes

1.Best Friends Forever

At the end of the episode we finally see Abbi and Ilana cementing their friendship forever, literally in cement on the corner of a random street. Seriously, if these two were basic bitches they would be #friendshipgoals

bff

FALL TV PREVIEW: WHAT TO WATCH

I know, you’re still recovering from that empty feeling that was once filled with excitement for Game of Thrones. Well, get over it, because you’re going to be waiting a long time before you see dragons and a certain aunt/nephew duo get freaky in a boat again. Here’s our top three choices for TV watching this fall.

Riverdale (Premieres Oct 11th on The CW)

#RiverdaleStrong #JusticeforEthel #CantWait #RecapRewindPodcast

As you can tell we are very, very excited for the return of The CW’s / Netflix’s Riverdale. I’ll go on a limb here and say I think everyone was shocked when they realized how well received the show was. Let’s be real, it could’ve been another awful teen drama that circled around a murder and then literally circled, circled, and circled some more for 6 seasons strong. But, the writers at Riverdale didn’t put us through that, in fact we learned about the main murder by the end of season 1. And it all worked out, and we really didn’t care about the murder because the main characters were on point all the time. #Bughead. Also thank you to the writers for creating a show that broke down every single stereotype that a teen drama has had. Love triangle? Why bother when the two female characters are more fun to watch as friends than as enemies.

gif-riverdale-bandv.gif

What can we expect for their second season? It’s true, every show has the dreaded second season slump, and with Riverdale’s daring jump from 13 episodes in season 1 to 22 for season 2 – we’re really hoping they come through with some strong storytelling. Considering how big their cast list is, there are so many character arcs they can explore  (Kevin), and we already know that there will be additions to the existing cast (Jellybean + possible Sabrina).

Whatever the cast list may be (Fred we know you’re not dead), we know the writers are going to deliver on another LIT season – from the music to the jokes, to the sticky maples, okay maybe no sticky maples, but seriously who’s dressing up as Varchie for Halloween?

Editors Note: Also guys, we have a lot of fun recapping a ton of shows here, but if you enjoy podcasts then be sure to listen to the Riverdale recaps produced by Recap Rewind Podcast. They are freakin’ hilarious and on point with their recaps, half the fun of watching Riverdale is to recap with the fans afterwards!

Narcos (Premiered Sept 1 on Netflix)

If you’re a big fan of drug cartel documentaries or films, then you probably already know about Netflix’s Narcos. And if you know about Narcos, then you’ve probably already binge watched the entire third season.

Let’s talk about the Escobar seasons for a hot minute and that second season slump. In my opinion, the first season was brilliant. There was nothing else like it on TV. I don’t know if there was a plan for a second season when they did the first, because the second season felt dragged on like it was forced. I think Escobar’s story could’ve wrapped up by the end of the first season, but they continued on and somewhere in the middle of the second season I stopped watching.

 

Narcos came back for a third season, no Escobar this time, instead it was about the second place drug kingpins – the Cali Cartel. This was their strongest season yet and here’s why Narcos should be on your Fall watch list.

gif-narvos-cali

The Cali Cartel: It’s true these guys were always in second compared to Escobar, they operated under the radar, while Escobar took all the heat. Right from the start Agent Pena’s description of the Cali cartel was intriguing, because they hadn’t been in the media as much as Escobar was.  There was an air of ‘mystery’ to the cartel, they prided themselves on operating in a discreet fashion, all the while having control over 90% of the world’s cocaine market. Also they were the sworn enemy of the Medellin cartel which was all Pablo Escobar. So you know, there’s tension.

narcosS03

The Characters: One of the things about the third season was the huge mesh of different storylines. There were new rookie agents, brothers, sons, security guy turned inside man, and even scorned ex wife. Seasons one and two proved you could have one character as the main focus and still have an exciting show, but the third season did the complete opposite and gave us a slew of complex and rich characters.

The Clothes: So the third season does fast forward a little bit, it’s the 90s, we got Bill Clinton and HRC up in this intro video, and the clothes, they legit made 90s clothes look hot as hell. And it was hot, literally everyone was sweating their assess off, I don’t think Agent Pena was dry the entire time. But seriously, the clothes added to the allurement of this season. Everything looked like Versace, there was gold everywhere, and the first episode pops off with a party, how fitting.

narcos-pacho-alberto-ammann-848164

Narcos season three deserves a binge watch. Vamos! All episodes are streaming now on Netflix.

American Horror Story: Cult (Premiered September 5th on FX)

When you think of Fall you think of October, when you think of October you think of Halloween and when you think of Halloween you think of haunted houses, ghosts, aliens, murderers, and disturbing cults. That’s right, AHS embodies everything that is fear in the fall and so it’s only right that the new season of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story premiered right at the start of the new season. We are in a very shaky and scary political climate – The Handmaid’s Tale didn’t help with the whole ‘let’s be hopeful of this new world order’. To top that off, Murphy releases his 7th season that circles around the surprising results of the recent election and the outcomes that transpire because of it. This is perhaps the realest AHS has ever been, and in that it could very well be the scariest season yet. What can we expect from the rest of the season? Not really sure, but we do know one thing, if you’re scared of clowns this isn’t going to be a fun one to watch.

gif-ahs-cult

American Horror Story: Cults airs at 10pm on FX.

 

 

 

 

SUMMER TV SENDOFFS!

The summer literally felt like it came and went, and that’s because it did, but it also brought some of our favourite shows back, so we ain’t mad at it. Let’s look at some of the summer hits that took up way too much space on the PVR.

Kimmy Schmidt (Premiered May 19 on Netflix)

Realistically the show should be called Kimmy & Titus becuase let’s be real, he’s the real star of the show, But, we still get excite when this show comes around, and obviously, we’re binge watching this all weekend. This season saw Titus break up with his boo and find his inner Beyonce – he didn’t have to look too far. It was amazing.giphy.gif

Kingdom (Premiered May 31 on DIRECTV)

kingdom-clap

Kingdom has been one of my favourite shows, not just of the summer but, of all time. I never thought a show about MMA fighting could resonate with so many people, but that’s because Kingdom was more than just a show about MMA fighting. This season was their final one, it’s sad to see a story that wasn’t quite finished come to an end. And I was so ready to watch more Jonathan Tucket because he was so beautiful and brilliant this season. I’m dealing with it, also he’s in American Gods so we should be seeing him in season 2 of that. We’re saying goodbye to our sweaty summer and our favorite sweaty men. #VeniceForever

Orange is the New Black (Premiered June 9 on Netflix)

OITNB-riot

This is one of the shows I wait all year for, and with the hype around the new season taking place over 3 days in the prison it was supposed to be the littest season yet! Aaaaand it wasn’t. I’m going to be honest here and admit I couldn’t even get through all the episodes. Imagine that, the potential to binge an entire season and I still couldn’t get through it? The episodes were jam packed with storylines jumping from all characters, and you would think this would be super entertaining, but i found it super annoying, with most of the dialogue sounding like filler content. It still makes it on my list because we’re already excited for next season!

Game of Thrones (Premiered July 16 on HBO)

GOT-johnandkhaleesi

Literally the show we wait over a year for. Season 7 only had 7 episodes, but we have to admit they were beyond lit. This season we found out that R+L definitely = J. But what we really cared about was D + J 4EVA!

 

Ozark (Premiered July 21 on Netflix)

Someone described Ozark to me by calling it the show on Netflix with Jason Bateman that’s basically Breaking Bad but with money laundering. And they were right. They were also right that it’s a really well done show. It’s only in its first season and things are starting to take off for Marty Byrde and his family. I wasn’t crazy about the season finale, but I’m excited to see where they can go with this. Breaking Bad really didn’t hit it’s peak until season 2/3. So give it a go.

Insecure (Premiered on July 23 on HBO)

insecureHBO

One of my favourite shows of the year. 2017 also saw the end of HBO’s Girls, and trust me we were ready for that to end. But for HBO to come through with another comedy that felt so much like Girls, it was a big risk, but we’re glad they took it. The season 2 Insecure finale was one of the best season finales I’ve ever seen. From the music to the heartbreaking flashback, the writers were just so on point. So many feels for this show.

That’s it for the summer! We’ll miss some, some others we have to wait so freakin’ long so don’t even think about it (GoT). But stay tuned for our FALL TV PREVIEW because it is loaded with more shows we cannot wait to PVR and forget to delete. Welcome to fall. Enjoy your PSL.

15 THINGS THAT HAPPEN DURING A GOT WATCH PARTY

With the new season of Game of Thrones just around the corner, okay there’s still like two months but considering we’ve been waiting all year, just let us have this moment.

So with the new season approaching, so are those Game of Thrones watch parties with all your friends. Here are all the things you think about while watching Game of Thrones.

15. When you put on HBO at the exact hour and you still have to wait for those damn HBO trailers to finish

arya-waiting

Like, The Leftovers seems like it would be a cool show, but no I don’t care to watch a 4 minute trailer right now, just please, take me to Westeros.

14. When your friends roll up with a 40-pack of birthday cake timbits and donuts and you’re so grateful you have good people around you

got-tyrion-snacks

Set the mood right with the perfect snacks, whether it’s a delicious dessert, or some 7-layer dip and chips, you know HBO has no commercials, so you better have everything you could ever want in the next 55 minutes, right in front of you.

13. When your friends roll up with a big bottle of red and you’re just like ‘how fitting, it’s the colour of BLOOD!’

cersei-morewine

[Caution: Consuming large amounts of alcohol will affect your memory and you may not remember key moments of the episode the next morning at work, so just like, be careful]

12. When you tell all your friends to put their phones away or you will literally set them all on fire #bye

dragon-burnthephone

Guys, this is not a joke, phone usage will not be tolerated during Game of Thrones watching, there is no reason for you to be on your phone, because the next 55 minutes is literally all that matters in life. I’m just saying, I will be okay with setting your mobile devices on fire.

11. When you had to wash your hair and didn’t have time to dry it before the episode so you’re stuck for the next hour with wet hair

jon-wethair

Seriously, this is legit #firstworldproblems. You know you had to wash your hair for work the next day, but all your friends were coming through so you didn’t have time to dry your hair and now you’re stuck for 55 minutes with wet/cold hair. But realistically, you don’t even mind because Game of Thrones is life.

10. It’s time to dim the lights…

khalees-screaming

I don’t be messin’ around with potential TV glare, the lights need to be turned down low for maximum Game of Thrones watching. The person closest to the light switch will feel my wrath.

9. When the opening sequence starts and one of your friends is like ‘I haven’t caught up I’m still like on season 4’

got-whyareyouhere

No but really, did you think there was going to be a PowerPoint presentation recapping the last three seasons? If you’re not caught up, then I can’t help you.

8. When everyone starts eating and your living room floor is basically destroyed

khalees-dontspill

LOL, this one doesn’t even bother me because again, Game of Thrones is life and nothing else really matters for the next hour.

7. When the episode literally just started and someone’s already asking a question

cersei-annoyed

We have slotted some time after the episode to discuss scenes and/or ask questions, please refrain from speaking for the next hour. Again there are no commercial breaks, you will just have to guess what was said in the scene if you didn’t hear them

6. When the entire room didn’t hear what was said in the scene, so it’s okay to use your PVR powers and rewind the scene

got-pvrvibes

You can only use your PVR powers once, as long as everyone in the room agrees they had no idea what just happened in that scene, and to be fair, that does happen often in Game of Thrones.

5. When that 7-layer dip gets to you and someone lets one rip

khaleesi-thefart

LOL, it’s okay, you’re forgiven.

4. When you’re halfway through an epic scene and you realize Littlefinger and Varys basically started the entire show

littlefinger-starteditall

It’s true, Littlefinger is the cause of everything, he legit played a little finger in every single death and decision from the beginning. Think about it.

3. When someone shows up to the watch party with a cold and now you’re stuck breathing the same air as them

gpt-cersei

By this point, you’re in the thick of the episode and to be honest you probably won’t even notice if one of your friends is having a severe cough attack, so really, just keep watching, you’re good.

2. When everything you wanted to happen in the episode didn’t happen and now you’re left with an empty soul

sansa-yourdreams

Half the fun of watching Game of Thrones is predicting/hoping/wishing/yearning for the outcome of your dreams, and when it doesn’t happen, you’re literally, crushed to the core. Also, you do feel really stupid when you cursed King Joffrey to his death but his death didn’t even happen until season four.

1. When the night and the episode comes to an end and you’re wishing all your friends a safe drive home

melisandre-whenyourfriendsleave

The hardest part of the night is saying goodbye to your friends wishing them a safe drive home. Having to retreat to your bedroom with all of tonight’s epic moments floating through your head is extremely daunting. The night is truly dark and full of terrors.

 

 

 

The seventh season of Game of Thrones premieres Sunday July 16th on HBO.

The Handmaid’s Tale – A Second Season

There’s a lot you can say about The Handmaid’s Tale – it was a novel  written by Margaret Atwood back in 1985, that mostly everything in her book has frightening similarities to our (or the American) political climate today and that Hulu probably made the best decision ever by purchasing the show.

The_Handmaid's_Tale_intertitle

Hulu renewed The Handmaid’s Tale for a second season after the airing of the first episode – you can imagine how much acclaim this show has received by fans of the book, TV enthusiasts, feminists, and basically anyone else with an open mind.

I remember reading the book a long time ago, so I don’t even remember how the story with Offred ends, but I’m really hoping there’s a happy ending. I assumed the TV series would be a onetime thing, one season with a beginning and end. But finding out that there might be much more to the show and more story for these characters, I’m excited. But, also a little nervous because it’s obviously going to take a little longer before we see some resolution.

Set in a dystopian future, the world is suffering from a lack of newborn babies, and the republic of Gilead has decided to take measures into their own hands. A woman (Elisabeth Moss) is forced to live as a concubine under a fundamentalist theocratic dictatorship.

handmaids-quoteThere are some great players in the show Elisabeth Moss plays the main character Offred, Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls) plays her neighbour girl Ofglen, Joseph Fiennes and Yvonne Strahovski (Dexter) play the married couple, and Poussey from OITNB is out of the orange but looks great in red.

 

The first season is only half way through, and there have been some amazing scenes, the adaptation of the book is seamless with their script, beautiful camera work, flashbacks are on point and the music in the show is everything.

Stay tuned for the end of the season, we’ll be recapping our favourite moments, and I’m already having trouble deciding on them.

TOP 10 RIVERDALE MOMENTS

While we’re waiting for the two long weeks until the return of Riverdale, we decided to compile our top 10 favourite moments from the season so far. These moments had us laughing the hardest, had ours jaws droppin’ low low, and had us screaming “YAAAS Betty YAAAS!”

10. Jason’s Body

img-10-jayson

Jason is the most overrated character on the show, he’s literally never had a line or spoken a word of anything. We don’t even know what his voice sounds like but, his name is called over a hundred times in an episode, and by the end of the pilot, his body turns up at the lake. We find out he’s not only missing, he’s dead *gasp* and he has a crater sized bullet hole in his forehead. Jeez.

9. Grundy High Key Creepin’

img-09-grundy

Grundy had my jaw droppin’ low because she was a lethal creeper till the end of her four episode stint. She started off so innocent (I never believed she was) but when she’s baited out by Alice Cooper, Grundy draws a white flag and says she’ll leave town if they don’t arrest her. So you’re like okay cool, she must not be as crazy as she looks because she’s giving up Archie, she knows she could get arrested for basically being a pedophile, but instead, this biatch turns her lurk meter up as she’s packing her car, she gives one final (probably not final) look to a pair of high school jocks walking down her street. I was like I KNEW IT!! She is so shady, and we are betting that her and her creeper beetle will be back in town to stir some sh** up before end of season.

8. Homeless Jughead

img-08-jughead

Jughead is probably the saddest character in the show right now. He even beats out dead crater sized bullet hole Jason. At the end of the ‘Last Picture Show’ episode, when the town’s only drive-in theatre is being closed, we see Juggy pack his things from the film room where he’s been living for some time. How sad is that!? The saddest part was him closing up, and his dad being like ‘Yo son where you gonna go now?’ So his dad knew he was homeless and living at the drive-in the entire time! Ugh, Juggy we love you.

7. The Sticky Maple Sitch

img-05-stickymaple

When Veronica goes on a date with the football star of Riverdale high, she’s feeling herself, but it quickly comes crashing down when the next morning she realizes she’s been ‘sticky mapled’ What is that you ask? The show doesn’t really answer that question, all we know is that a picture of Veronica was posted on fake Instagram with a maple syrup smear on her face. I’m assuming it means she was ‘mapled’ aka she did the dirty. But when Veronica finds out she knows Chuck is lying, and is ready to go ‘full dark no stars’, and this inevitably leads to the number one spot on our list. See below.

6. Archie and Veronica in the Closet

img-06-closet

I had to have this on my list because it really did surprise me. The entire time Veronica was playing the good girl friend role to Betty, and she was all like Betty go get your man Archie. And then out of nowhere she jumps into a closet with Archie for 7 minutes. She could’ve used that time to have an awkward conversation with her best friend’s love interest, but instead she puts the mack on Archie. Girl what? Girl bye.

 

 

5. FP for the Win with Jason’s Letterman Jacket

FP is Jughead’s father, and he’s also the leader of the Southside Serpants, Riverdale’s version of the Hell’s Angels. By the end of Chapter 7, the camera pans through the inside of FP’s trailer and we see Jason’s letterman jacket hanging in his closet. Lot’s of questions here as to why FP has his jacket? Was FP the one who torched the getaway car Jason and Polly had stashed away? Is he holding onto the jacket for safekeeping? Is he going to return it to the Blossoms? Is he planning to impersonate Jason with his dark and brooding dad hotness? So so many questions, guess we’ll find out more when Riverdale returns on March 30th.

4. Cheryl Blossom in All White Everything.

img-04-cheryl

Literally, all white everything. This was definitely a moment where I was like ‘whaaaaaaat?’. When Veronica helps Cheryl Blossom pick out her outfit for her dead brother’s memorial, Veronica had no idea that Cheryl was planning the ultimate betrayal. Not choosing what your best friend picks out for you. Girl, you just don’t do that. Also, she chose the complete opposite colour, trading in her black dress, for the all white dress she had on when she saw her brother last. Just seeing her enter the room, everyone’s heads turning, her mom’s face, it was one of the best moments. I was shocked but laughing at the same time. Her reasoning for the choice made total sense, she was wearing it when she saw her brother alive last, so it has meaning. We feel you girl.

3. The Bughead Kiss

img-03-bughead

Okaaaaaay but I did not see this coming. Did you guys know this was going to be a thing? For the last few episodes Betty and Jughead have been working overtime at the paper,or just in life general to uncover the mystery that is Polly and Jason. They’ve been spending long nights and early mornings together, and I guess somewhere in the middle they were feeling each other. There weren’t too many hints at this connection before, which I guess is a good thing because I honestly didn’t see it happening right then and there. It was nice. At the end of Chapter 6 Jughead pulls a Dawson’s Creek moment and swoops into Betty’s room via the upstairs window. (In the future episodes I would like to see the exact ladder from Dawson’s Creek hanging beside Betty’s window) He swoops in and she’s all stressed out about Polly and Jason, and he’s like way-a-min and grabs her and kisses her! That’s when Twitter exploded with the #Bughead and a new couple was formed. So does Jughead make the Archie/Veronica/Betty triangle a square now? Something to consider right?

2. Pregnant Polly

img-02-polly

Polly oh Polly. We had been hearing so much about Polly since the beginning of Chapter 1, we finally get to see her in Chapter 6 and it was amazing! I low key had a feeling she might’ve been pregnant. The idea that two high schoolers were rushing to get away and start a new life together seemed only logical if they were about to have a baby. So I was right, but when Betty strolls her way into the institution Polly had been locked up in, it was still surprising to finally see Polly was indeed preggos. And she didn’t seem all that crazy, but by end of episode she jumps out of her room window leaving a trail of blood behind, so yeah she may very well still be cray cray.

1. Betty and Her Wig

img-01-betty cooper

I mean was this even a tough choice? This scene will probably be my favourite from season one just because it was so friggin’ badass and crazy. When Veronica decides to get back at Chuck for sticky maple-ing her, Betty comes back hard and is like ‘no Veronica we need to ruin him forever’ And Veronica was all game, and so were we, and then there was the wig and we were like oh sh** this bi*** be cray. Ethel (Barb from Stranger Things) has an indoor pool, so Betty decides to lure Chuck over to the indoor pool and have a crazy sexy night with him, and she invites Veronica into the mix to because she needed a cameraman. It was just a fun scene, the music was on point, and then Betty walks out in full black on black with a black wig!! The look on Veronica’s face just said it all, that Betty was definitely not as innocent as she seemed. And then a few minutes later she legit almost drowned Chuck. So the night got a little out of hand, but it was still amazing seeing B & V run a mission together. Here’s to many more of those.

What do you guys think? Were there any other moments that stuck out to you guys? What has been your favourite scene of season one so far?

Riverdale returns with a brand new episode on The CW Thursday March 30th.
