Fall TV Preview: What to Watch

We’re back from summer hiatus along with some of our favourite shows. Here is our fall tv preview and what we think of some of these new additions. Basically this is our ‘if you’re not watching you should definitely be watching’ list.

Westworld

HBO

1274080_mkt_pa_westworld-s1_po_v1_p
Probably the most talked about show this fall, it premiered on HBO last Sunday, and everyone’s dubbing it ‘the new Game of Thrones’ Okay, it’s probably the farthest thing from the Game of Thrones world, but it’s an HBO production, and let me tell you they did not cheap out on this one. If you were a fan of the Matrix movies, you’ll most likely be a fan of Westworld. I, however, was not a Matrix fan nor am I remotely interested in anything sci-fi. BUT, I enjoyed every second of the premiere and I am officially obsessed. If you’re down for a show that requires attention but pays it forward with a boat load of Easter eggs, this is the show for you.

 

 

Pitch

FOX

Okay we’re leaving HBO for cheaper television, but hey, there’s still some good stuff on here. Pitch is the story of the first female baseball player to enter the male professional baseball world. I know it sounds so cheesy and I was so not going to watch this show, but I was pleasantly surprised.

cm29swtxgaaas_z

They put you right into the world of ‘her’ on her first professional game day experience, and it all seems so wild you’re intrigued by this new world. The writing is witty and empowering. It’s a feminist show without being a feminist show – does that make sense ? ‘Her’ name is Ginny Baker played by Kylie Bunbury and she slays (sorry I couldn’t find another word okaaay), she finds the perfect balance between cocky sports player and vulnerable rookie.There’s also a lineup of good actors, Ali Larter plays her agent and is basically the female version of Ari Gold. Mark Consuelos plays the manager of the baseball team and he’s meh.  Then you have bearded Zach Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) playing the A-list sports star of the team. He looks really old compared to her. In typical fashion, she’ll probably have a romance with him but I’m really hoping she doesn’t because this is 2016, there’s a girl playing baseball with a bunch of guys and we’re doing something different! So no more predictable storylines – I’m looking at you deceased family members!

Scream Queens

FOX

scream queens, ryan murphy

I’m someone who considers Ryan Murphy and his crew Jesus and his disciples. Seriously, that crew just know how to make relevant and good TV. Scream Queens was one of my favourite shows last fall, and with a promise that each season will be a different ‘setting’ you naturally stick around to see what’s next. This season we find all our favourite peeps plus some new ones at C.U.R.E  – a medical institution that Dean Munsch opens because she’s basically filthy rich and wants to change the health care system. But also you know she’s got some secret plan. Oh and there’s a green monster this time around haunting the halls of the hospital. My favourite security enforcement solutions officer is back (Niecy Nash), newly graduated from Quantico (I died) she’s all about finding the killer, who she still thinks is Zayday (Keke Palmer). I was laughing through this entire write up, they kill me.

Rob and Blac Chyna

E!

I feel like I’m just going down the TV totem pole here, but considering half of television is reality television and half the universe is Kardashian, it’s only fitting Rob’s new show is on here. Seriously, I loved Rob, and then he got all sad and disappeared and I missed him! But now he’s back, he definitely still has issues and I have no idea how he’s about to be a parent but hopefully Scott can give him a few pointers. (Sarcasm) Also, Chyna’s pretty cool. Here’s to hoping Kylie does in fact realize things this year and actually makes a mends with both her boyfriend and brothers’ baby mama. Guys don’t judge me, I want to see him win! (Oprah voice)

 

How to Get Away with Murder

944104_770

Like I feel like at this point we pretty much know how to get away with murder, now in its third season the drama seems to be repeating itself just a tad but we’re giving V-Davis and crew  a chance. Frank is crazy – let’s just call it like it is. He’s friggin hot as hell but he crazy, and with his new haircut he looks even crazier. Honestly, sometimes the drama is just too next level on this show, but now I kinda wanna see Laurel and Wes have a thing. Also, more flashbacks from the season premiere, V’s house gets burned down and someone doesn’t make it. My money’s on Billy Brown. Stay tuned, because if you don’t you’re gong to get confused with all those time jumps.

Let us know of your favourite shows this Fall season and we will get on them!

The People V. OJ: A Brentwood Hello

If you’re wondering what it’s like to be grinded on by O.J Simpson and Ross Gellar Robert Kardashian at the same time, just watch the first 30 seconds of this week’s American Crime Story. Like really, how friggin’ creepy was that shot? More importantly, why wasn’t Kris Jenner in da club?

Let’s get right into the episode, because everyone was a little off this week, and nobody does a little off better than Connie Britton in a Ryan Murphy show.

ACS_faye

Faye Resnick (Connie Britton)

If you don’t know who Faye Resnick is, it’s because you’re a good person and could care less about the 90s. Faye Resnick was Nicole’s best friend, or ‘best friend’ because I feel like any friendship in that Hollywood circle deserves air quotes. In the midst of her ‘best friend’ being stabbed to death, she decides to write a ‘tell-all’ book about her friendship with Nicole, so that women all around the world can put a stop to domestic violence. Fine girl do your thing. Most of the episode has Connie conversing with her ghost writers about things Nicole told her in privacy, but again ‘privacy’ could use air quotes as well. After the book was published, Faye did a publicized interview with Larry King, so the episode recreates that interview, and basically this is all important information because it’s effecting the trial and the process of jury selection. Also, according to Faye, Nicole had this thing, called a ‘Brentwood Hello’. I’m gonna let you watch the rest of the episode to figure out what that was.

Bob Shapiro

Bob Shapiro came crumbling down in this episode when his lead attorney position is replaced by newly acquired attorney Johnny Cochran. One of the best scenes of the season is when Johnny and Robert are discussing the case with O.J and the timeline of that night and how it looks like he couldn’t have killed her. O.J is all excited, like ‘yeah I totally didn’t even kill her though’ and then Bob Shapiro storms in, and before anyone could even say anything he’s like we need to make a plea deal, call it manslaughter, and basically spews an entire story (which kind’ve sounds like what really went down). And Robert and Johnny are just sitting there like WTF?, and that was probably the end for Bob Shapiro. But John Travolta has done an AMAZING job playing him.

ACS_elevatorJohnny Cochran

Is playing a larger role as the season progresses. Johnny and whoever Nathan Lane is supposed to be seem to be the only ones that are brave enough to stand up to Shapiro. So just seeing the dynamic between Cochran and Shapiro is really entertaining. There are way too many cooks in the kitchen, and that’s exactly what Marcia was talking about.

Marcia Clark

ACS_marcia

Is still our heroine and how funny is she with her drawer of liquor? They’re obviously trying to make us feel some type of way about her, because she was so hated in the media, it’s like they really want us to see who she really was. And I think Sarah Paulson is doing a badass job with this role. Hello side eye at the end? How awesome? But honestly, the only moment of this season where I was like oh girl bad move, is when they’re choosing the jury and Marcia’s all like’ I believe in the world, I believe in these people, they will make the right decision’ well guess what girl, they didn’t. And so you can see her desperate need to believe in the system and the people is just going to fu** her in the end. Also, the focus groups rated her a four compared to the defense side that scored no less than eight. They wanted her to change out of her power suits into a more feminine look, they wanted her to change her hair, they wanted her to smile more. It’s like hello? Who’s the one on trial here?

Robert Kardashian

ACS_robIs going last in this post because he seems to have a really basic role right now. It seems like he’s just more of a friend who happens to be a lawyer, than an actual lawyer. He never really gives legal advice, he’s just there to steer O.J in the right direction. But whatever, cool. He seems to think he knows Nicole, when they were reading Faye’s naughty book, he’s all like ‘Nicole would never do that, or that, or thaaaat’ (Imagine it in the Ross Gellar voice) Annoying right? Like obviously Robert you weren’t the best judge of character because hello – Kris Jenner.

ACS_shocker

The best part of the episode happens in the final 30 seconds with both sides entering the court room and Above the Law’s Superman is offering the biggest slice of irony. But that’s not even the shocker. The biggest shocker is the new addition to the prosecution team that catches the attention of Johnny Cochran and O.J Simpson. This warrants the greatest side eye/wink of all time.

Don’t miss an all new episode of American Crime Story: The People Vs O.J Simpson next week Tuesday on FX.

ACS_marciacourt

 

The People V. O.J: I Literally Can’t Even

“I literally did not realize he was a lawyer” and “You can’t put the genie back in the bottle” were just some of the great lines from this week’s episode of American Crime Story: The People V. O.J Simpson. I honestly can’t tell if the show is getting better by the episodes or am I getting used to the amount of cheesy expositional writing that is happening right now.

Johnny Cochran

This episode was all about the dream team convincing Johnny Cochran to get on board with the O.J case. “Behind every good man is a great woman” (I’m surprised they didn’t use this line in the episode) But seriously, it only took 30 seconds for Johnny’s wife to basically convince him to take the O.J case. And then they called him up and O.J put on a great performance so obviously he couldn’t say no.

khloe2

Robert Kardashian

Let’s not forget that it is Father’s Day in our American Crime Story world. And like any other Kardashian episode (let’s be real this is basically a Kardashian spin off at this point) the gang, including Robert Jr head to the most popular joint in Beverly Hills. Dressed up in their Sunday best, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob start turning up because they just cut the line at La Scala’s and their new dad is Bruce Jenner. While dad Robert is spewing ironic Gandi-esque lines to his children, baby Khloe wonders what she’s even doing there, and if her dad might be O.J (via Robert/Bruce + Caitlin). Also, monotone Kourtney points out that O.J is her godfather. Let’s all remember that people, because that little tid bit of information is sure to be monumental later on. If that last bit wasn’t sarcastic enough for you, La Scala’s is also serving up a big plate of irony in the words of the late Robert Kardashian. Here are some of the great pieces of advice he imparts onto his children. “We are Kardashians and being a loyal friend is more important than being famous” (Um Paris Hilton would have to disagree) “Fame is fleeting, it’s hollow, it means nothing without a virtuous heart” (Robert Jr could probably agree with his father on that)

ahscrimestory_KJ

But wait, things get better in a few minutes. Also, if you’re wondering why we aren’t talking about the actual O.J case, it’s because it’s hidden under 500 layers of Kardashian dialogue. Don’t think we forgot about Kris Jenner. Girl can’t have her kids all over the episode without showing her face. And I have to say, Selma Blair, you’ve been MIA for 10 years but you came back with the best role ever. I’m still serving sarcasm here. Robert shows up in a hot pink salmon golf shirt, and his ex-wife greets him at the door. I’m sorry, does everyone in Beverly Hills/Calabasas wear a power suit with dangling pearls around the house? What am  I saying, it’s Kris Jenner slash Selma Blair, duh. Kris Jenner delivers the most ironic line of the night, telling Robert that O.J probably killed Nicole, Robert reminding Kris he’s the uncle/Godfather of monotone Kourtney, and Kris replies “He’s a fake uncle, everything about him is pretend” Girl, bye.

Marcia Clark

sarahpaulson

Sarah Paulson has to be my favourite character right now. Her performance is the best, which isn’t saying much because everyone else sucks. She’s obviously the only one with a brain at the DA’s office, seems like everyone else is so sure they’re going to win the case, and Marcia’s over there in her office smoking on a cig reminding everyone she’s a woman and she has insight like nobody else! Duh! But seriously, she puts in work and is totally shell shocked when she realizes O.J’s lawyers are going to make the case all about race. Slowly her evidence, like Nicole’s 911 call gets released to the media, making it inadmissible in court. Are you all still following? Is this intriguing at all? Are you currently googling – kris jenner power suit where to find?. If you are, I don’t blame you. Sarah Paulson delivers the final line of the episode, when she reads the morning paper that headlines Johnny Cochran joining O.J’s legal team. “Motherfucker” she blurts out right before putting out her cigarette.

Bob Shapiro

The biggest slime ball of all. He basically initiates the entire ‘race case’ theme by writing an article in The New Yorker.

O.J Simpson

Cuba Gooding Jr appeared towards the end of the episode, and delivered a pretty crazy performance of admitting his innocence to Johnny.

The People V. OJ: What’s Wrong With The Show

Let me just say it here, the last thing I ever wanted was to write a post on all the things wrong with FX’s The People v. OJ Simpson. It’s a show produced by my favorite writer/director Ryan Murphy, so obviously, I had high hopes for this series. Also, it has a cast filled with top notch celebrities (okay maybe not top notch) but it’s a show with a high production value.

But now, the time has come for me to be brutally honest. We’re two episodes in and I’m not entirely impressed. I’m not giving up, it’s still early and the car chase ended last night so I feel like now we’re moving in a different direction.

Here’s what’s wrong with this show:

I want to break this down into characters because I think that’s what this season is all about. But before that, let’s just talk about the writing real quick. I find it really weak when shows rely on expositional writing to explain things to the audience. This was a highly publicized and documented case, there is enough information out there for fans to educate themselves. We don’t need the information thrown at us, all that does is create really cheesy and limited dialogue.

Cuba Gooding Jr: Is probably confusing me the most right now. I don’t know if I like his acting or if I hate it. I don’t know if the real O.J was that over the top crazy (most likely he was) but it just makes it harder to understand how accurate Cuba’s performance is. There are moments where I’m like okay this shot is on him way too long, and he’s screaming way too loud, is he over acting? Or is it just that he doesn’t have enough lines in the script so they just need a super long extreme close up shot of him? Still, we’ve only seen him in this crazed suicidal state, so I’m excited to get further into the season and see a different more manipulative side of him. But still, what are your thoughts?

David Schwimmer: Don’t get me wrong I really love him but he cannot, and shouldn’t have played the role of Robert Kardashian. His face, it’s just not made for serious acting. Also his voice – he sounds like Ross!!. Also his constant connection to the Kardashian children. WTF was that cut scene during his press conference to the living room with his kids watching him on television screaming “daddy, daddy!” Like was that really necessary? And where was Kris Jenner?? Do the Kardashians secretly have a producing credit? So, so many burning questions. There was an article by Rolling Stone last night that pointed out Robert wasn’t the one who convinced O.J to get out of the car. So for them to use Robert as the one that does it in the show makes me wonder there’s someone behind this all that really wants to make Robert look like the hero. Not to say he wasn’t, it just seems like they are going to greater lengths to flush out his character and his ‘heroic’ demeanor.

Sarah Paulson: They are pushing real hard to make us appreciate that Sarah Paulson’s role as Marcia Clark was a no-joke badass biatch. In the midst of the entire O.j car chase, she seems like the only level headed person in the department, while her boss is sketching out because he isn’t going to be mayor anymore.

John Travolta: Eyebrows on fleek. All I can say is John Travolta is coming through with this performance. And I’m sure there’s a lot of truth to this performance, but it’s clear that Robert Shapiro was more of a lawyer than a friend to O.J. The moments where Kardashian is torn and hurting because O.J was is his real friend, Shapiro steps up and has to make the decisions that ultimately help them later on in the case. So as much as he’s the asshole-y lawyer, John T plays him perfectly. And that’s all I can say about that.

Johnny Cochran: So we haven’t seen Johnny involved with the two Roberts yet, he’s more on the outside observing and deciding if he’s going to take the case. Johnny’s decision to represent O.J obviously comes down to how he felt the DA’s office was treating people of colour. We’ve seen snippets of his character, but I’m excited to see more of his techniques and what made him a great lawyer during the actual case.

The 405 Freeway:  Came through the hardest this episode with its epic aerial shots, wide shots, close up shots, pedestrians on bridges shot, the freeway did a lot this episode. And I’m pointing this out because it took Murphy and the production team over a year to get permits to film the car scene. Let that sh** sink in. There were some great shots in there, but the craziest one was seeing the highway completely empty, with the Bronco and police cruisers chasing him down.

I also felt like I was forcing myself to get through the entire episode, and whether that means the pacing of the episodes is super slow, or losing interest is easy because we know how this is all going to end, whichever it is, Ryan Murphy needs to pick this ish up.

AHS HOTEL: ‘Room 33’ RECAP

I hate to admit this but I’ve been searching for points in the season that are going to disappoint me and eventually make me hate the season entirely. But the new season of American Horror Story: Hotel hasn’t done that just yet, and I’m starting to believe that I’m not going to be disappointed with this season. Like any other American Horror Story season, there’s a lot of stories floating around. The writers bring in a lot of characters, and then slowly disperse them or connect them to each other. We’re now in episode six of the Hotel season and things are starting to come full circle nicely. BTW, this recap will have spoilers. BTW, Will Drake has a nice butt.

willdrake-ahs

Lady Gaga: I think everyone had their uncertainties about Lady G filling the shoes of Jessica Lange, but she’s done an amazing job with her character this season. [Confirmed Gaga will return for the next season of AHS- whatever that may be] As the season progresses, I’m more enamored by her character and her motivations. I had a discussion with a friend a few weeks back and we were talking about Gaga being the villain of this season, and whether or not she’s supposed to be. Is she a villain? Should we assume she is mostly evil and a little nice? Or is she just a really complex character that has a good heart. Well, if you watched this week’s episode you probably know the answer to that. And it’s ironic that I was asking that question because I knew right from the start of this week’s episode, Tristan and Liz Taylor weren’t going to make it out alive.

As much as we’ve seen her give life to some characters, and in most cases she literally gave life to them or brought them back to life, she has a sense of ownership over them and she expects them to be loyal to her. She exudes this nurturing motherly figure, but really their happiness isn’t her concern, and her killing Tristan just shows that it’s all about her.

But an important flashback from this episode, 1924 Gaga shows up at the Murder House (season 1) to visit the doctor that everyone’s been raving about – the abortion doctor! Except Gaga isn’t having a baby, she’s having a demon baby. And when the doc pulls it out, it’s still alive and attacks the nurse. The better world would be slaughtered. But I guess since then Gaga has kept this demon baby  – Bartholomew hidden in Room 33, and for good reason that ish is fugly.

Demonbaby-ahs

Bartholomew: Super exciting that the entire time Gaga is kidnapping children around Southern California, she has a real baby of her own locked up in room 33. I mean it’s not a real baby, the face is pretty much torn off, and it has little beady eyes like a shark, but I mean it still came out of her V so it’s hers. We know about the baby because of the flashback, and then we see Gaga saying goodbye to it before she goes to Paris, and then Buffy the Vampire Slayer shows up at the hotel and wants to see little Bart. When Angela Bassett’s character enters room 33, she’s attacked by the demon baby. Also by this point we haven’t seen the demon baby yet. But anyways, John (Wes Bentley) is leaving the hotel after a bloody threesome, and before he zips up his suitcase demon baby hops into it! And then when John gets home demon baby escapes and lurks around the house. Scarlett is downstairs eating popcorn when dad sees the demon baby and shoots at it. Demon baby scurries off leaving a trail of blood. Scarlett gets sent back to her grandmothers, wow Chloe Sevigny is a ruthless mother she didn’t even want to look at her daughter now that she has Holden. Still outside, Chloe sees the demon baby and picks it up and brings it back to the hotel. When Lady Gaga returns she looks all worried and Chloe’s all like don’t worry I saved your baby just like you saved mine. And in the moonlit room Gaga doesn’t look so evil holding her demon baby.

Matt Bomer: Seems pretty useless right now, but he feels the need to preach to the two Swedish girls that died earlier in the season. “Find your purpose” he tells them, and I really hope he’s not quoting Justin Bieber. Ugh.

Liz Taylor: Is in love with Tristan and Tristan is in love with Liz Taylor! Who would’ve thought these two would fall for each other?

Tristan ‘When I come down to the lobby it’s like you’re genuinely happy to see me, I believe you’ Liz Taylor ‘You’re not gay for being with me, I’m a girl. Thank you for seeing the girl’

How cute are they though!? But you know sh**s about to go down because Tristan is Gaga’s boy toy and ain’t nobody going to steal her toys. Liz Taylor knows they’re screwed but he can’t help himself. PS, how much are you loving these 80s beats in the background? Gaga is too busy with Will Drake, until she’s not busy because uh…Will Drake is not a fan of the ladies. One quick text from the Countess ‘Cum up’ to Tristan and he knows he has to go.

iphone-ahshotel

A. I love that Tristan calls her the Countess in his phone book B. His battery is charged fully even late into the night and C. Her spelling.

Long story short, when Tristan and Liz Taylor tell Gaga, she says okay you can have each other. And then she kills Tristan!!! Not shocking but totally ruthless!

AHS HOTEL: ‘Room Service’ RECAP


‘I never knew how to live ‘til I died’, ‘You see everything when the world doesn’t see you’ were just some of the fantastic quotes from this week’s episode of American Horror Story: Hotel ‘Room Service’ This season is packed with different through line stories, but with every great Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk season it’s the beauty in the little things that make it entertaining.

Tonight, much like this week’s episode of Scream Queens was definitely a filler episode, but that doesn’t mean a filler episode can’t be just as cool.

Chloe Sevigny: Let’s start off with her because that’s how the episode starts. She’s sort of recovering from her vampire transformation, she’s doing the best she can with her pasty white skin and that sickly child with the measles. He’s on the verge of death now and so his mother is finally worried about him. But nothing seems to be working to save the kid, so Chloe takes a quick blood break in the nurse’s closet and swallows a few packs of the red juicy juice. Once her mind is back at ease and her thirst is quenched, she heads back to the boys room and injects his iv with her own blood, passing on the eternal life thingy that Gaga gave to her. So the kids magically healed, his mother is super impressed and takes her child back home just in time for Halloween day at school. Yay! Except the kid can’t even make it to school before he needs his blood supply and ends up killing his own mother in the kitchen, right before catching his yellow school bus!

ahs-hotel,americanhorrortstory,ryan-murphy

Angela B: Is back for a quick scene with Matt Bomer and his sickly mother, who is also in the middle of her transformation. (She was about to die but then her son Matt Bomer gave her the power of eternal life) So basically this vampire curse is just floating around right now and everyone is becoming a bloodsucker. This is low key the beginnings of Fear the Walking Dead right now. So anyways Matt Bomer convinces Angela that his mother can infiltrate the supreme Gaga, and they put her to work.

Kathy Bates: Enters the Hotel Cortez in fear of Gaga finding out that she’s been transformed into a blood sucker. She doesn’t want Gaga to know the truth, so she spends some quality time with Liz Taylor and that guy from Glee. Glee hipster and his hipster girlfriend check into the Cortez on the night of Halloween to get away from all the strollers and whiny kids. They want to smoke and chill in peace, and male hipster heard that the Cortez was owned by famed designer Will Drake so they decide to pop in. Kathy Bates is already been done with their hipster vibes and you already know she’s about to get freaky. But it gets better, the two hipsters order some room service ‘grilled romain and pate’ After taking their order Kathy’s about to have a major meltdown when Liz Taylor steps in and decides to help her. They go to the hotel kitchen where Liz Taylor admits that he’s not actually gay, he just wanted to be a woman and then Kathy bluntly says ‘I look at you and all I see is questions’ and so Liz Taylor throws us into his flashback life circa 1984.

ahs-hotel,lady-gaga

Liz Taylor: Aka Nick, a man with a family who worked in a field where he would get to fly all over the world and in doing so stay in his very own, very private hotel room. It would be here where he would undress, and dress as a woman. Except this time, he’s visited by Gaga who tells him ‘You walk like a man, dress like a man but smell like a woman’  She offers to help him become the goddess he was meant to be. Isn’t this Lady Gaga in her true self? I love it. And so Liz Taylor becomes Liz Taylor. And then he tells Kathy Bates to do whatever she wants and to not take sh** from nobody. And she goes right up with some cat food dressed as pate and murders both the hipsters with a wine bottle opener. Classic but so good.

Halloween: One of the craziest moments of the season goes to that random kid who had measles. He goes to school, bites the girl he has a crush on, and then everyone is just going buck wild, murdering their teacher then the principal. The school inevitably goes into a lockdown, but when the special forces arrive they’re looking for a man in a black mask, the kids magically know to listen to the kid with the measles and they’re all about to get away with murder. Take that Viola Davis!

Officer John Lowe: Gets fired for telling his boss about the devil’s night dinner with all the serial killers and has sex with Sally

Chloe Sevigny: Is back at the hotel where Gaga tells her she’s going to spend the rest of her life with Holden, but she’ll also be taking care of the other children. Which means Gaga definitely knows something’s up with Kathy Bates and is going to take her out. The final shot of the episode is Holden and his mother getting into his coffin. Ugh so creeps.

AHS Hotel: “Mommy” RECAP

@thesassygay

Yeah even the detective doesn’t have one

@Hollywd_Heroine

@thesassygay

For sure

@Hollywd_Heroine

He’s on the edge of glory [wink]

@thesassygay

Oooh, chateau margot, he is too gay to function LMAO and they just called him out on it. hahahaha

@Hollywd_Heroine

He’s so dreamy

@thesassygay

I like Gaga, I think she’s doing a good job

@Hollywd_Heroine

She’s turning gay men into straight. Woah

@thesassygay

Lol if anyone can do it, it would be GAGA

@Hollywd_Heroine

Bernie Madoff?!? lol

@thesassygay

He’s in this storyline!?!

@Hollywd_Heroine

Oh she’s going to marry/kill (maybe f***) dreamy gay rich guy

@thesassygay

Right right I figured that’s her game. OMG Wes Bentley is pulling a Lamar Odom ‘I’m so sick please stay, please stay’

@Hollywd_Heroine

OMG STOP. It’s too soon LOL. But still so good

@thesassygay

She’ll see Holdon now

@Hollywd_Heroine

Woah he remembers her? OMG no Kathy Bates!

@thesassygay

Poor Kathy!

@Hollywd_Heroine

“I want nothing more than the dark silence of death itself” Great line.

@thesassygay

@Hollywd_Heroine

@thesassygay

Elevator evolution

@Hollywd_Heroine

Ok I’m in love, who is this DMX wannabe?

@thesassygay

Let’s see those eyes up close and personal

@Hollywd_Heroine

He’s DMX but hotter, oh f***

@thesassygay

Omg noooo, the hottie rapper

@Hollywd_Heroine

Woah!

@thesassygay

She’s all about revenge, this is COVEN all over again! Come on

@Hollywd_Heroine

But it’s working, this is the game

@thesassygay

I really like Liz Taylor, she slays. Kathy Bates is passed out on drugs?

@Hollywd_Heroine

This sh** is happening too quickly, where was his epiphany all along?

@thesassygay

I’m glad she said it, because I’m like that is some type of irony

@Hollywd_Heroine

So she’s going to live forever now?

@thesassygay

Yeah, it was a good episode. Thankfully it wasn’t as gruesome or raunchy. I was excited to see Angela Bassett come THRU.But for reals, I think it’s a little dumb that she’s like “imma get back at her ‘cuz she got back at me” it truly is Coven all over again “someone working on the inside, I’mma kill her babies” i feel like she says the exact same line in Coven about the girls on Halloween night. There are so many stories moving at the same time, I don’t even know what the main through line is anymore, it’s like little pockets in each room –but it definitely works for this season

@Hollywd_Heroine

Agreed. I felt like that storyline in Coven worked though, so I’m excited, and realistically those children need to be saved so I’m glad there’s someone actually doing something about it. Or not, she might kill them so we’ll see

SCREAM QUEENS: ‘Pumpkin Patch’ RECAP

Oops we did it again! Can we still do that? Use a Britney quote from the 90s? Pretty sure we can, again we teamed up with The Sassy Gay to bring you a very brief ‘recap and review’ of last night’s “Scream Queens”. Read below:

———————————————————————————————————-

@Hollywd_Heroine

SCREAM QUEEEEENS! Love this show it’s absolutely hilarious, what were your thoughts on last night’s episode titled “Pumpkin Patch”

@thesassygay 

Ummmm, loved it.

@Hollywd_Heroine

So we know that Scream Queens is going to have 3 Halloween episodes, which is totally Ryan Murphy that guy has like a black soul. But last night had us running through a pumpkin patch maze, and the girls trying to keep up with their Halloween traditions after the dean called all the events off right?

@thesassygay 

That’s right HH. It’s definitely my favorite time to watch his shows because Ryan Murphy always turns up for Halloween (cc: AHS) At this point in time, are we even following this story or are we just waiting for Neicy Nash to get on camera and spit some hilarious ish?

@Hollywd_Heroine

Neicy Nash definitely wins MVP of the season, I’ve been cracking up everytime she’s been on screen, and I find it even funnier that she legit hates Keke Palmer’s character Zayday Williams. Speaking of Zayday she’s missing…but we do see that she’s alive

@thesassygay 

This girl Beyonce’s right through those KKT front doors and is ready for the vote by the end of the episode while this piecemeal rescue team lags behind. Fishy?

@Hollywd_Heroine

Yeah fishy on whose part? You think Zayday has something to do with the red devil??

@thesassygay 

Who knows at this point. I feel like everyone who doesn’t have some on camera action (not including recollection) has something to hide.

@Hollywd_Heroine

Yeah and I think last night I fully realized I don’t even care who the red devil is, I’m just loving all the characters and craziness that’s going on. Chanel #1 goes to jail…I swear that just happens so Ryan could have his Orange is the New Black throw

@thesassygay 

How funny was that, there was even some likeness to some of the main characters. This man is full stop poking fun at just about everything and everyone

@Hollywd_Heroine

That’s what this show does so well, they poke fun at our entire world but in the best way. Side note: The new show “Scream” on Netflix tries to do this, but they fail miserably. End of side note. And I feel like it makes me appreciate the Scream Queen girls even more. OMG the candle girl was losing her shit!!! I can’t even, I could talk about all of them they’re all so jokes.

@thesassygay 

Lol I know. What do you think of Lea Michelle’s character (Chanel #6) turning into a cray double agent?

@Hollywd_Heroine

I was kind of annoyed that the first chance they got they ditched her ugly get up and dolled her up…because obviously she couldn’t stand to be ugly for another second. But she’s actually really funny and still a little desperate to get the attention

@thesassygay 

Yea she definitely plays her role well. They all really do. So do you think with this latest episode we get a little bit closer to finding out the who’s and the why’s?

@Hollywd_Heroine

Well we obviously know that Nasim Pedrad’s character Gigi is working with the Devil group, and she’s probably the mastermind of it all. But other than that, I feel like we don’t really know much. And I almost feel like they really don’t want us to spend too much time figuring it out. They’re like just enjoy this damn show because Niecy Nash is friggin hilarious!

@thesassygay

I don’t care who the killer is, because SHE kills me. #cornyjokes

@Hollywd_Heroine

But where do you think that leaves Chanel #1 in all of this? And PS Chad Radwell is amazing

@thesassygay 

Something about his face annoys me

@Hollywd_Heroine

He’s supposed to.

@thesassygay 

Yea well he’s doing a great job at it then lol. I think Chanel #1 has a bit of something going on too but I highly doubt she has much to do with this Red Devil murder stuff

@Hollywd_Heroine

I still feel like ear muff girl is going to shock us with something…under those ear muffs

@thesassygay 

Lol, she turned up for a quick minute when she was “next in line” during their imaginary lunch (GENIUS). I was like damn girl, you’re not some doe eyed quiet girl you can take charge too, getit

@Hollywd_Heroine

Wait that was imaginary??

@thesassygay 

They were “fake eating” the food lol – hilarious

@Hollywd_Heroine

It looks like there are only 8 episodes in the first season..,if that’s the case I’m going to be really sad slash how are they going to end it all. Because we know this is going to be another anthology type show, not as drastic as AHS but still. Things will change next season

@thesassygay 

Yea I have no idea how this will all play out. And I hope theyre already shooting next season lol

@Hollywd_Heroine

…with Niecy Nash. And the music has been ON POINT…I love it…I love it all

@thesassygay 

K what was with the addition of the opening credit sequence all of a sudden?

@Hollywd_Heroine

Ya thats what I meant!!! I loved it but why did it just start now lol

@thesassygay 

We’re halfway through the season and they introduce it??? Do you think they’re trying to make it more visible so people who are flipping channels are like “Ooooh whats that?”

@Hollywd_Heroine

No i have no idea what it means, I just assumed they wanted a few more minutes in the other episodes but even then it doesn’t make sense to add it now

@thesassygay 

Yea who knows, but even the sequence shows you how much fun they’re having fun with this genre

@Hollywd_Heroine

Totally and I’m having fun watching it…until next week! Zayday’s nachos looked gooooooood tho

@thesassygay 

Oakland Nachos. Bye Felicia

SCREAM QUEENS: TURN UP TUESDAY!

It’s Tuesdaaaaaaaay! Which for the next few weeks means Scream Queens which means a sh*t ton of screaming and laughing. If you haven’t already seen the first episode of AHS creators Scream Queens on FOX, you’re missing out on some great TV. It’s sort of like Glee meets American Horror Story, and although I was never a fan of Glee, I trusted that those two shows blended into one would be a firecracker. Not only has the Twitter world accepted their new Queens, (move over Pretty Little Liars), but reviews have been raving abuot the new show that premiered back to back episodes with a star studded cast. Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, Lea Michele, Niecy Nash, along with many others are bringing it on Tuesday nights. Those of us who have work in the morning, this is the most turnt up your Tuesday is going to get.

Check out the recap podcast by Recap Rewind, it’s actually hilarious and a good time. Check them out.

AHS Freak Show: 7 Day Countdown

It’s the first day of October, and for some this month can be a horrible reminder of the ensuing winter climate. For others, including myself, October is all about the cool autumn air, sweater weather, pumpkin spice lattes and of course – AMERICAN HORROR STORY!!

American-Horror-Story-Freak-Show

I’ve been waiting for this one since the end of last season’s finale, every season is a new story, a new theme, and an even scarier world to jump into and that’s what makes AHS one of the best shows on TV. (The best in my opinion sorry GoT!) If you haven’t read up on this season yet, here is a quick overview:

Freak Show will be the 4th season of American Horror Story (each season is separate from the other, characters, stories, locations all change with the release of a new season-  so don’t worry about catching up) This season is set in 1952 Jupiter,Florida telling the story of one of the last remaining freak shows in America. Returning cast members from previous seasons include, Jessica Lange (she has announced this will be her last season), Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe,Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, and Frances Conroy. This fourth season will also include new additions Michael Chiklis and Patti Labelle (playing Gabourey’s mother)

Okay so if that cast isn’t reason enough, Ryan Murphy announced to a fan on Twitter that Jessica Lange will be singing a Lana Del Ray cover. No word on Lana actually being in an episode, but with last season’s Stevie Nick’s cameo chances are high, and our fingers are crossed.

Here is a compilation trailer that someone put together of all the Freak Show promos.

American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres next week October 8th 2014 on FX.
