Netflix 5: Lifetime Movies for Your Lazy Saturday

My love of the LMN genre is well documented on this site. There’s nothing like turning your brain down to 1 and watching a parade of marginally pretty people do really dumb things, or formerly famous actors tackle lurid true crime tales while you lump around on the couch. It’s easy. It’s comforting. It goes […]

This Week in Misogyny Isn’t a Grave Threat to Fraternities

Happy Friday, ladyblogland! This week we’ll talk about two new campaigns to bring feminism to the masses, a truly absurd amount of terribleness, and a math lesson from John Oliver. (As usual, trigger warnings for just about everything apply.)

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3.10, “For the Tacky Bondage Businesswoman in You”

Last night, the world crowned the all-starriest designer to ever Project Runway All Stars. Well, except for the last all-starriest designer. Or the one before that. But it was still very exciting.

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3.09, “Milly, but Hopefully Not Vanilli”

It has been weeks, Persephoneers, weeks since I mocked anyone from the teevee. Well, mocked them on the Internet. About sewing. Did you don neoprene or put some half-ass cutouts in a tee shirt because you missed Project Runway All Stars? Personally, I’m wearing Mondo as a cape right now.

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3.07, “I Now Pronounce You QVC”

On this week’s episode of Project Runway All Stars, the designers were whisked away to an exotic locale to design! They flew to Pennsylvania to see the studios of QVC. (For the purposes of this post, you should lower your expectations of the word “exotic.”)

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3.06, “See This Hat? ‘Twas My Cat”

I hope you had a happy turkey day, Persephoneers! Did you miss Project Runway All Stars? Did you swaddle yourself in an old bed sheet, some coffee grounds, shoes from the QVC (TM) Accessory (TM) Wall (TM), and a sense of unearned entitlement to remind you of the good old episodes? I know I did. […]

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3.05, “Bonnie and Clod”

Sigh. Tacky Jeffrey is still with us on Project Runway All Stars, kittens. I look forward to this week’s tasteless offering from him, as well as his bullshit explanation of why we should all take his wretched artistic expressions seriously. Jeez — it’s like junior college art class all over again, except the stank of patchouli […]

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, 3×04, “It’s Not an Unconventional Challenge Until We See Some Poor Model’s @$$”

What glamorous doings were our Project Runway All Stars up to this time, Persephoneers? Why, riding the school bus! I think that must mean our challenge for this week involves making a gown out of smelly teenage jock straps, or perhaps band instruments abandoned after the away game. Fingers crossed for both!

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, Episode 3.03, “Petition to Put Nate Berkus, Professional Hottie, On Every TV Show”

Booze. Finally, this week, the designers were given a theme I could really get behind. Other acceptable Project Runway All Stars themes? Unicorns; donuts; James McAvoy; Xena, Warrior Princess; and lipstick.

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, Episode 3.02, “Oh, How the Worm Has Turned Out”

Have you recovered from Ari going home last week on Project Runway All Stars instead of the sad raffia Muppet that Daniel made? Me neither. His mustache had better be extra glossy tonight, or else I’m going to be mean. Meaner than usual. Yes, you’ll be able to tell! Grumble mutter grumble grumble.

New Show Recap: Project Runway All Stars, Episode 3.01, “Punk, or What Westwood Vivienne Do?”

In a world. On a TV. Sent through the airwaves. Via electromagnetic…thingies…of some kind… What? I’m a budget recapper, not an engineer. Sent via magic to your TV, it’s Project Runway All Stars! Yes, PRAS, where all the clothing is made up and the good intentions don’t matter. Get ready for some ugly crap concocted […]

Lifetime Brings Us the Lives of “Preachers’ Daughters”

One of my co-workers was out sick last week, and came back with some exciting news. “I was stuck in bed watching terrible TV, and I found a new show for us to watch!” she told us on her first day back. “It’s called Preachers’ Daughters, and it looks horrible!”

Recap: Project Runway, Episode 9.7: “No One Wants a Canceled Coochie”

team·work /ˈtimËŒwÉœrk/: noun 1. annoying and pointless effort on the part of a Project Runway group of designers to alienate the audience and produce nothing of value. It is a commonly held belief that “teamwork” was responsible for Hammer pants. 2. a concept created by Heidi Klum as part of her sadistic efforts to take […]

Recap: Project Runway, Episode 9.1: “The Answer is Always Used Underpants.”

Greetings, fashionistas, reality tee-vee-istas, judges-who-use-too-much-orange-self-tanner-istas – it’s Project Runway time! PR is one of my fav-or-ite shows, even if they did choose a hipster troll who “designs” brown diapers to win last season.
