Girl Power: The 8 Best TV Shows for Women

One of the best things about the absolute wealth of television available right now is the diversity of it! While ten years ago finding a show with a strong, relatable, and inspirational female lead was a bit of a challenge, it’s now as easy as can be.  If you’re looking to add a little girl…

‘XTC: This is Pop’ is The Anti-Rock Doc

“Once in a long rare while you get a band that starts out pretty good and gets better and better and better and I have to be immodest and say, we’re the other band that did that.” So says singer/songwriter/guitarist Andy Partridge of XTC, the band that over a 25-year career moved from oddball punk…

RHOBH

The Best and Worst Fashion of ‘RHOBH’ This Season So Far

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has kicked off the season with a suspiciously conciliatory tone. Sure, there are rumblings of reviving the Lisa Rinna-versus-Dorit standoff, but only one person seems interested in that stale storyline (no surprise, it’s Dorit).

Seven Observations From ‘The Bachelor’ Premiere

ABC’s long-running reality dating show The Bachelor returned on New Year’s Day with 2012 Bachelorette finalist Arie Ludenwyk broken out of cold storage to hand out the roses.

FOX, Ryan Murphy Bring The Drama With 9-1-1

FOX and Ryan Murphy have added emergency drama to their respective resumes with 9-1-1. 9-1-1 joins the likes of other network emergency dramas, but carves out it’s own lane apart from, say, Chicago Fire and Chicago Med on NBC. Coming from the minds behind American Horror Story and American Crime Story, of course 9-1-1 finds a way to stand out. Led by…
