We talk TLC’s I Am Jazz with transgender teen activist Jazz Jennings!

all-that-jazz-jazz-jennings

When Jazz Jennings was 6 years old, she showed Barbara Walters and a 20/20 crew her ultra-girlie room, then warbled a bit of her favorite song, “In My Own Little Corner” from Cinderella: “In my own little corner, in my own little chair, I can be whatever I want to be. On the wings of my fancy, I can fly anywhere, and the world will open its arms to me.” It was a poignant moment for reasons well beyond the charming sight of a pretty little girl singing a princess song to her famous guest — because Jazz Jennings was … Continue reading

Where is Documentary, “The Man With No Penis”?

Where is Documentary, “The Man With No Penis”?

The saying may be, “Don’t judge a book but it’s cover,” but in my world, I follow my own saying — “DO set your DVR based on the title.” So when I heard of the Discovery Life documentary, The Man With No Penis, first I checked to see if it was an April Fool’s joke, and second I called “dibbs” amongst my coworkers. I love watching any series with an intriguing title especially when medical documentaries introduce viewers to fascinating people with incredibly rare medical conditions. I adored the funny and charming story of Jonny Kennedy who suffered from the … Continue reading

Psychic Matchmaker Recap: Episodes 1 and 2

Psychic Matchmaker Recap Episodes 1 & 2

Psychic Matchmaker premiered on TLC last night, with 2 back-to-back half hour episodes. The show follows Deborah Graham, wife of one, mother of two, and psychic matchmaker of … many? I’d assume many, since she’s ostensibly successful enough to get her own reality series. In the first episode, “I Need a Man,” Deborah tells us that South Florida (where she’s based) is one of the hardest places in the world to find love. I’m not exactly sure why that would be, and she doesn’t explain it, but that’s her story and she’s sticking with it. Is it all the alligators? … Continue reading

TLC’s Psychic Matchmaker Premieres Friday May 1

Psychic Matchmaker TLC

I may or may not be dating. I may or may not have seen a psychic or two ( … or, um, four) in my life. So when I heard about a show that combines dating and psychics, I thought, “Well, yeah, of course … WHY NOT?!” Actually, that’s not what I thought. I thought, “What lows will reality TV sink to next?” But, you know, I think we scraped the bottom of the barrel with Neighbors With Benefits, so we might be back on the upswing. Enter Psychic Matchmaker, TLC’s new series, which premieres tomorrow night (Friday, May 1) … Continue reading

Trailer Park: Welcome to Myrtle Manor Wrapping Up Season 3

Trailer-Park-Myrtle-Manor

Tomorrow night marks the season 3 finale of TLC’s always entertaining series, Trailer Park: Welcome to Myrtle Manor. I still can’t quite believe that this is an actual TV show, and that these are real people and not caricatures (or … are they?), but if you love your TV with a side dish of deep-fried Marlboro Lights, this show may be for you. Hey, it’s reality TV, so even if you haven’t watched this yet, it won’t throw you too much to start at the end and work backwards. It might be worth tuning in to see the 2-hour finale … Continue reading
