Dance Moms recap Episode 30: Takin’ It To The Streets

dance-moms-episode-30-cathy

The season is winding down, Dance Moms nation! It’s time for nationals and things are about to get seriously crazy. But before we get into that, let’s take a moment to reflect on the hot messery which has been Season 4… Our faithful Abby brought in a “Select Team” of dancers whom she talented poached from around the country to challenge the Pitt Crew. For the first half of the season, we waited for them, we argued about them and mostly we hated them. When they beat the girls in competition we were worried they might be here to stay. … Continue reading

Preview: NGC’s “Live Free or Die” introduces viewers to human rewilding

Colbert from NGC's Live Free or Die

Consider yourself forewarned. As you’ll second-guess using vanilla and raspberry flavoring after learning just exactly where it came from thanks to National Geographic Channel’s new docuseries Live Free or Die, debuting Tuesday, Sept. 30 at 10pm ET/PT. That said, NGC has found itself a winner by following five unusual Americans who are participating in a lifestyle trend known as human rewilding (the undoing of domestication, people who are living almost completely off the land). Living a minimalistic existence never looked so unappealing — at least to this suburbanite — as is the case for this handful of beaver- and rat-eating … Continue reading

Dating Naked: the Lost Episode Recap

Dating Naked: the Lost Episode

Of course, this episode isn’t really lost. This is the show’s pilot, something that was created by the producers to serve as a sales vehicle to VH1. I have seen images of the pilot since this summer when VH1 first contacted me about covering the show (I wrote an article for July’s Channel Guide Magazine, so I interviewed Amy Paffrath in May.) and I’ve been wondering if and when we’re going to meet the woman with the dark, curly hair and wondering if any of the couples clicked. I also have been wondering what changed between the pilot and the … Continue reading

Dance Moms recap episode 29: Chloe’s Penultimate Peril

Dance Moms recap episode 29: Chloe’s Penultimate Peril

It’s that time of year again, Dance Moms Nation. The ALDC dance concert is on and it’s going to be cutthroat this year! The Pitt Crew plus Sarah (of CWAY CWAY fame) and Kamryn from the Select Team are all lined up for pyramid, which is predictable, as always. Chloe hits bottom (this time for missing a day of rehearsal to get an MRI on her foot), even though Kendall was the one who couldn’t win a competition even with Maddie choreography. Nia finally makes it to the top after her Maya Angelou-inspired win and all the girls give her … Continue reading

Syfy docuseries “Town of the Living Dead” follows one town’s undying effort to make a zombie film

Syfy docuseries "Town of the Living Dead" follows one town's undying effort to make a zombie film

Zombie films and TV shows are hot right now, but the folks in Jasper, Ala., may have been ahead of the trend — six years ago they began efforts to make a zombie movie (called Thr33 Days Dead; don’t ask us how it is supposed to be pronounced) based on a town urban legend. It remains unfinished, and their attempts to finally complete the film are chronicled in the new Syfy docuseries Town of the Living Dead, which is a nice complement to the network’s ongoing scripted zombie series Z Nation, airing on Fridays. Thr33 Days Dead itself sounds like … Continue reading

Vh1’s Dating Naked Wedding: Recap

Dating Naked Wedding

I totally cry at weddings. Good weddings, bad weddings, trashy weddings, so I’m pretty sure I’m going to cry during tonight’s  Wedding.  But I guess it’s not really a wedding, because (obviously) Ashley and Alika wanted their families there for the real deal (and to wear clothes) so this is a naked love ceremony. I never thought it would be Ashley and Alika getting married, but to hear Ashley describe meeting her soul mate, it is incredibly sweet and you realize how obviously perfect they are for each other. And to see flash backs to their first meeting is great. … Continue reading
