P-Mag’s Ultimate Cocktails: Woo Woo

I don’t really drink cocktails, unless we’re counting “whatever beer is in the fridge” as cocktails, so this might be less ultimate and more “slightly-above average for when you want to finish the vodka.” Read More P-Mag’s Ultimate Cocktails: Woo Woo

“How I Met Your Mother” and Bollywood

I’ve been watching How I Met Your Mother on Netflix, which means I’m a season behind. Since I like being spoiled anyway, I’ve been reading Donna Bowman’s recaps at the AV Club, and have read every review of the series finale that I can get my hands on.

Badass Ladies on the TV

What follows is a highly subjective, woefully incomplete list of some of the coolest ladies on TV in 2011. Despite my best efforts, I can’t watch everything, and so I’m 100% positive I’m overlooking an unfortunately high number of badasses. Don’t view this as an authoritative list (what constitutes boob tube authority anyway?), but rather as a start to a list that can only get longer, better, and more diverse.

This is a collection of characters that are eminently watchable (and not in the Jersey Shore train-wrecktastic kind of way). They are independent, outspoken, and complex. They are flawed and hesitant and uncertain, but simultaneously bold, ambitious, and brash. They are the characters I identify with if only for that delicate and truly human combination.

After last night’s episode, I’m an unconditional Segel fan for life. Read More Recap: How I Met Your Mother
