For the last several years, I’ve been recapping HBO’s True Blood here on Persephone Magazine. A longtime fan of both The Southern Vampire Mystery series, on which the show is based, and of vampire-based pop culture, I was excited to see HBO pick up the series. I loved the shows initial blend of camp and […]
I want to talk about last night’s episode of Glee. Specifically the return of Samcedes.
My workout playlist is filled with some embarrassing nonsense, folks, and I love it.
Whether you go old school with the high five or play it cool with a fist bump, I’ve got gifs for you!
Every show has one… the token minority character. Tokenism, as we’re all aware, is wildly problematic.
Have you ever realized how many musical shows are on television now? Glee, The Voice, American Idol, America’s Got Talent, and even Dancing With the Stars. There is a new one starting with Kelly Clarkson, Duets.
Welcome back to another edition where I show my lack of pop culture.
Good evening, Persephoneers! Yet again I’m here in my pajamas, though at least this time with good reason, which also happens to be the explanation for why I haven’t been around much lately: I’m not well. In fact, the only one in the Juniper Household not to have been unwell is Juniper Puss. The rest […]
Happy Wednesday, my little rays of Internet sunshine! I hope everyone’s week is going as well as can be expected! Today’s lunchtime poll is about music again, because I’ve been digging out my old mix CDs and I found an ancient iTunes back-up with a bunch of songs I thought I’d lost forever.
It’s a New Year, and here are some of the things I would love to see happen in 2012, television-wise.
I laughed through this episode of Community the same way I laughed through last year’s “mockumentary” episode: loudly. Somehow I think the fact that a show I liked was being made fun of (last year: Parks & Recreation; this year: Glee) made it that much funnier.
I’m going to be honest with you, Persephepeople. I thought I was going to hate this episode, and I ended up really, really liking it.
Previously on Glee, Sue tried to destroy the glee club, and Rachel learned a lesson about how to get along with people. Tonight on Glee, Sue tries to destroy the glee club and Rachel learns a lesson about how to get along with people. Saltwater Taffy plays a role.
Once again, there is no new Parenthood tonight, which makes me sad. I did catch the last fifteen minutes of Glee, which was kind of amazing, but I’ll leave that review to Selena. Instead, I’m recapping Raising Hope, that quirky comedy that comes on after Glee each week.
As much attention as Glee has gotten lately for its portrayal of gay teens on television, I wasn’t so convinced. It’s great that there’s a main character on a TV show for gay and questioning youth (and everyone else) to see. It’s even better, and more encouraging, that the reponse to gay teens in primetime […]
