What did Psych Ever Do to You? — 10 Reasons to Watch

PsychBy Amanda

I don’t know if I should be copping to this in such a public forum, but I am not ashamed to say that I am a fan of Psych.  The television show, not the college major or the 90’s slang.

And I am not alone. The USA Network recently held a live all-night Psych marathon and people were tweeting into the early morning hours.*  A few even tweeted pictures of Psych themed tattoos.  Real tattoos.  Unless they were fake.  Psych. Continue reading

An Open Letter to Pretty Little Liars

PLLBy Amanda Festa

Dear Pretty Little Liars,

Your third season finale has me a little confused. I apologize, I don’t do hallucinogenic drugs, so I couldn’t really follow this last season. Toby’s bad. Toby’s dead. Toby’s alive. Toby’s good. Toby’s good, pretending to be bad. The only thing I did buy was Spencer’s recent catatonic depression – now that is what someone being pursued by a psycho killer with no where to turn looks like. Not wearing a blazer and studying for a chem test. This isn’t Constance Prep.  You’re not meeting Blair on the Met steps for yogurt; someone is trying to murder you.  I think it’s okay to let yourself go just a little. Continue reading

Loving a Succubus Ain’t Easy

Bo and DysonBy Amanda Festa

[Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers to Lost Girl episodes 3×07 and 3×09]

I recently got into the supernatural fantasy Lost Girl – and by “got into” I mean, methodically ran through the first two seasons on Netflix.  The show is reminiscent of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, all grown up – similarly campy, self-aware, entertaining and just great escapist television.

Kickstarting the Veronica Mars Revolution

Veronica MarsBy Amanda Festa

Remember all those times you were talking about the possibility of a Veronica Mars movie? All those times you said, “man, I would pay to see that.”  Well, hopefully last week you put your money where your mouth is.  It seems about 50,000 other people have.  Continue reading

The Millionaire Matchmaker’s Guide to “Age-Appropriate” Dating

Patti StangerBy Amanda Festa

Nothing kills the spirit of a 29-year-old girl quicker than an episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker.  Oh whew, Patti, you’re making that 50-year-old poser date age-appropriate women.  I was worried you wer— wait, whattt? Age appropriate is 27?  #$@%!& Continue reading

In Defense of the “Bad” Vampire

By Amanda Festa

SpikeI don’t know what has happened in recent years. It appears that the supernatural community has gotten together in an effort to overhaul their dodgy reputation with a brooding emotionally damaged poster boy.  But guess what, I don’t recall Dracula whining to Mina Harker about how he’s so sorry for all of the unnecessary deaths and really wants to change.

If the memo got lost somewhere between Transylvania and Mystic Falls, here it is:  Vampires are bad. By definition.  And still we are bombarded with these vampire characters put into boxes. They are vampires, they are all bad.  It is in their undead DNA to drink human blood. It doesn’t come in cartons.  And pigs’ blood is like soy milk – you can totally tell the difference.
