New Netflix Show ‘Girlboss’ Is Nailing It

May 6, 2017 in Celebrities, Comedy, Commentary, Entertainment, Review, Shows

Sophia seems like a lost teen who has no idea what she’s doing. She’s working in a store with no respect for her supervisor and she doesn’t care much about the job to begin with. It’s not long before she’s fired. So, takes off and buys a jacket. Then, she steals a rug and has a squat at the park.

That’s right! That’s how the show starts. Really kind of random right? But, it catches your interest. Knowing that the real Sophia is a businesswoman who once owned and was the CEO of Nasty Gal, a company that was doing almost $100 million in sales at one point. Actually, there are different reports about how much it was making at its highest point. But, it doesn’t matter. Nasty Gal climbed pretty high and what’s awesome is the unorthodox way in which it was done. Forget all the negative press about the company now. Of course, they made mistakes.

The question is how did Sophia go from a lost young twenty-something to the CEO of a multi-million dollar company? You have to admit, you want to know. Trust me, you won’t be let down. It’s not a show about the business really. It’s hard to explain. It is about the business, but it’s more about Sophia.




It’s comedy wrapped around drama and it fills a void. The show is for real. It comes at you and it finds interesting ways to tell the story without rushing. How did she meet her best friend? That’s an episode of really cool flashbacks.

How did she lose her business on Ebay? They bring an online forum to life with a round table and the chat of several members sitting behind their nameplates. The jealousy is hilarious and how they plot against her is outrageous. She wakes up one morning to find her account suspended. Does that stop her? No! Nothing is stopping this girl who found a way to do what she absolutely loved doing because she hated doing everything else.

I give the writers an A+! It’s writing like the following scene that makes the show so intelligently humorous and captivating:

When Annie is offered a promotion and she’s deciding whether or not to take it:
Annie’s Boss – “This is your Sliding Doors moment.”
Annie – “I never saw Sliding Doors. I bought a ticket. But, didn’t go. I wonder how my life would have turned out if I had gone.”

And Scenes Like These




Of course, the internet’s full of articles about how unfortunate it is for the show and the feminist movement that Donald Trump is in office and that the business just filed for bankruptcy. That’s pretty much the buzz and many people seem to agree on that angle. I’m not going to go into all that because I watched the show for the entertainment value and the fact that Sophia comes across as a brat doesn’t turn me off at all. She fights for what she wants. If you want to know how the show affects the feminist movement or what they think about it, there are more than enough gossip rags highlighting those things.

It’s best to go through life not putting people into categories. You don’t cloud your brain with expectations and you can see people for who they really are. Despite her temper tantrums, you’ll love her attitude. The way she looks at life and how she gets things done will grow on you. All of this wrapped up in a funny and entertaining show with moments of ‘real’ splashed entirely through it. Imagine that!

Here’s A Good Look At Who Sophia Is




Why ‘The Wall’ Is The Next Greatest Game Show

February 3, 2017 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, Shows, Television

The Wall has been on now for quite a few episodes and I have to be honest, I didn’t catch it at first. But, I finally got around to checking it out and watched all the episodes available in one flail swoop. It’s because it was that captivating.

It’s designed to make winners out of every contestant. Trust me when I say, hitting a million is not that hard to do. I’ve seen it in just about every episode so far. That’s right! Just about everyone has hit a million at least one time in the show.

They have many chances and even if they don’t hit the million, there is a lot of big money up there. Everyone can get over a million even if they don’t even hit the million. This is a game designed to send people home with life changing money.




But, there are some downfalls and I’ve seen them. The Marine couple that was on had a good run. But, it fell apart at the end and I’ll explain how that can happen.

Let’s go through the gist of the show first. It starts with a free fall round where the balls drop and they have to answer the question right before they get to the bottom. They get the amount if they get the answer right. If they don’t get the answer right, the amount gets deducted from what they have. They can’t go below $0. If the amount they get from red balls is more than the amount they have, the show just sets the amount they have at $0 and hopefully, they have more chances left. They have to have at least $1 on the board to advance to the next round. Everyone has so far.

The next round is where the couple splits up and one goes to an isolation booth to answer questions. The other partner stays out on the stage and makes some pretty huge decisions. The partner on the stage has to choose what number to drop the ball from and whether or not to double up or triple up when they are given the chance.

The partner in the isolation booth has one job. They have to answer the questions. When the couple started out after round one, they had an amount of money. For each question the partner in the isolation booth gets, the show adds $20,000 to that amount.

This Is How Good It Gets

hits at 109




She had $109 on the board before this drop. She ended up hitting the $1 million and $400K. I told you it wasn’t that hard. It happens in just about every episode. It can happen several times. But, I haven’t seen that yet.

There is a bad part though. They get free green balls that earn them money. Then, they get questions where they can earn more green balls and earn more money. But then, they get as many red balls as the free green balls they started the round off with. It can’t be avoided. $1,349,000 can be wiped out in one drop. I’ve seen it happen. It happened to the Marine couple I mentioned earlier.

This Is The Bad Part Gone Good

the red balls




She was a lucky “dropper.” But, she had been hitting low money all day when she had green balls. How she got over $300,000 at the end was beyond me. But, that same luck worked to her advantage at the end when the red balls were dropping.

It’s a common thing to watch people walk away with big money. I’ve seen over a million. I’ve seen just under a million. I’ve seen some heartbreaking moments too. Because the ending is the kicker.

They send a contract back to the partner in the isolation booth. If they sign it, they get the amount of money they started with plus the $20,000 for each correct answer. If they don’t sign it, they are relying on how much money the partner on stage made. Sometimes, that’s good. Sometimes, not so much.

And that’s the game. You’ll love it if you give it a chance. I know you’ll get addicted. The life stories themselves are enough to make you want to cheer for them to win. Its almost like Let’s Make A Deal. It’s just more interactive and fun to watch.

The Controversial Conclusion Shot Almost Banned From ‘Girls’

February 2, 2017 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, Review, Shows, Television

Girls will be premiering its final season on February 12. What will this season bring? It definitely has brought a lot of controversy over the years. One scene in particular almost didn’t make it to the show because of how far it was willing to go.

HBO was going to “draw a line” over a conclusion shot. That means that the sex scene goes all the way. It even shows the final moment, which if you don’t know what that means, the adult film industry calls it a “Money Shot.” You got it now? Okay, let’s move on then!

The controversy with me is how far do you go? Of course, I like action movies and watching things blow up. When there’s a fight, I want to see the punches and the kicks. Put some blood in there for effect. That’s where I start when I’m talking about how far a movie should go.

Some writers have the need to go all the way with a sex scene. For whatever reason, they like to show as much as possible without going across the line to where they have to be rated “X”. Sometimes, that reason is for viewings. Hot sex scenes do raise the viewership. There are people out there who watch movies just to watch the sex scenes.

But, I’m a little old school. I’ve had sex. I know what it looks like. Sometimes, I think it’s even sexier to leave it to the imagination. Some nudity is fine. Some touching is good. But, they don’t have to actually have sex on the camera for me to understand what’s going on in the scene. I think it’s even sexier to tease people with it, but leave it out. Of course, that is just my opinion.

Lena Dunham

lena dunham




The show’s creator and writer though, she has a story to tell. I think that’s a very valid reason to be as graphic as possible. Sexual assault is something many people have experienced and they all don’t have a voice. In fact most of the time, their voice is taken away from them. It does them a service to give them a voice and I think Lena is doing that in her own strange way.

Zosia Mamet

zosia mamet
Zosia is another beautiful actress in the show. Of course, you know I’m going to be highlighting all the beautiful actresses from the show.

Sex in movies have become more of a common thing though. Each movie pushes that envelope further and further with how far they are willing to go. Even television is pushing. There are scenes in regular television that would have been frowned upon a few decades ago. So, what does that say about the world we have become?

Jemima Kirke

jemima kirke




Jemima is a very beautiful British actress who once tried to quit the show. Lena once told the story to Time magazine.

The fact that Girls is on HBO does make it a little different. I’ve been watching sex scenes on HBO since I was a kid after my mom went to bed. I’ve seen girls get naked and I even watched the sex education shows mainly because of the hot women. Hearing a hot girl talk about loving sex is HOTT!

Allison Williams

allison williams
Allison is obviously a very beautiful actress. But, she’s also a comedian which means I’m pretty much in love. A hot girl that can make me laugh is my goddess.

So, HBO has been doing this all along. Did they finally find their line though? It doesn’t appear so. The controversial sex scene was in the show after much discussion. They knew they were taking a risk and they made it anyway.

Shiri Appleby

shiri appleby




Shiri is a guest on the show. She’s the one who was in the middle of this controversy.

The controversial sex scene that we’re talking about has raised a lot of questions. In Season Four, it happens between Adam Driver and Shiri. It drew controversy because Shiri’s character expresses at the end of the scene, “I don’t think I like that. I, like, really didn’t like that.”

Adam asks her to get on her hands and knees. He has her crawl to the bedroom. Then, the scene goes from there in the most awkward sex that is dysfunctional and degrading to Shiri. It ends with the conclusion shot that by the way was made from conditioner and Cetaphil for a realistic effect.

“From the beginning, we were aware that what we were doing was sexually provocative, and that’s what made it interesting and new and fun,” Judd Apatow, one of the series writers had to say. “Lena wanted to reveal something that is normally hidden — so often you’re not talking about a giant part of most people’s lives because people don’t want to portray it on film — and that opened up tons of stories that you’re usually not able to tell.”

One thing’s for sure! With thinking like that, the show will always be real. What in the world does this final season have in store?




You’ll Be Tuning In Now

Was That A Blooper On ‘Lucifer’ That I Just Saw?

October 27, 2016 in Commentary, Entertainment, Review, Shows, Television

Tom Ellis and Lauren German shine in the hit show Lucifer. The show attempts to turn the ancient story around where Lucifer is the victim and his father, God is the bad guy who doesn’t listen and manipulates the entire universe. Even though the show is a top notch piece of work on FOX, it has its flaws.

A real bruiser of a blooper can be found in Episode 4, Season 2 called “Lady Parts.” In the episode, Lucifer sets up a girls’ night out for Chloe, the detective played by Lauren. Of course Maze, Linda, and the new girl Ella were invited.

It was going good until Chloe spotted a club stamp on a guy, evidence in her case. The guy’s girlfriend thinks something’s up and that leads to an altercation where the whole bar is fighting. Maze is as bad as she always is trying to protect the girls from flying furniture and blind punches. But, Chloe still ends up getting hit a few times before she finally gains control of the fight.

The scars she takes on become extremely interesting when they seem to move around her face. That’s right! I caught an oversight that I can only offer two explanations for why the blooper would have occurred. But first, take a look and see for yourself.

When We First See Her Cut

It’s Above Her Right Eye

Then, In A Few Scenes Later

It’s Above Her Left Eye

clearly-on-the-right-now

Look At A Scene Toward The End

and-its-back-where-it-originally-was
It’s back above her right eye. There are only two reasonable explanations that I can come up with at first and I actually debunked one of them.

I’ll start with the one I debunked. I thought by some absentminded focus that a flipped scene had been cut into the movie. What I mean by that is footage that is flipped horizontally for some reason. What is supposed to be on the right is now on the left.

But, that explanation didn’t fly because the rest of the office is the same. The desk is on their right. The wall is on their left, which is the way it would be in the direction the camera is facing. So, that excuse doesn’t pan out at all.

The easiest explanation then is the makeup artist. They simply applied the makeup on the wrong side and didn’t think anything of it. What a blooper! Got to be more careful than that. It could ruin a show if constant mistakes keep jerking the fans out of the scene.

But, here’s the thing that got me most about this particular episode. An ongoing joke is about how Dan looks like a cop. Chloe says so. Of course, Lucifer says so. Even Amenadiel agrees. So then, how did they get into the illegal party they were supposed to attend to get information about the murders?

When Dan walks up to the bartender, he tries to run. When asked why, he says because it’s obvious Dan looks like a cop. So, why didn’t the security outside stamping people notice? Why didn’t anyone else notice? This was an illegal sex party and no one said a word about the obvious cop except for the bartender? Did they overlook that important detail too?

When you like a show, you might not be looking for the bloopers. You might even let them pass when you subconsciously pick up on them. But, don’t do that! Be a real fan and point out every single one of them. Hollywood loves that!

Watch the episode for yourself! Lucifer

Is ‘America’s Got Talent’ Stepping It Up A Notch?

July 27, 2016 in Entertainment, Review, Shows, Television

America’s Got Talent has always had great talent. But, the first year was bombarded by people who thought they could do anything and get on the show. It wasn’t taken very seriously by too many people because they thought it was a variety show.

The winner gets a Vegas show is why so many people didn’t take it seriously. Try to follow me here. In Vegas, there are many great acts. There are legendary singers like Tom Jones and Wayne Newton. There are legendary acts like the Blue Man Group and Cirque du Soleil. That’s what a person is up against if they want to headline in Vegas.

So, most people entered the show thinking there’s no way they were going to get a real show headlining along the side of great acts like that. That’s why most people didn’t really bring their A Game. Besides the fact that there were some real goofballs who just wanted to have fun and get their few seconds of attention. That happens in shows like this.

But now, it seems like it’s a whole different story. The show has evolved into a much higher level of act. Of course, there are still some goofballs. The show wouldn’t be any fun without them. But, there is another level of act that is making it happen in 2016.

Check Out Jon Dorenbos


He took up magic to get over the death of his mother. The thing about him is he has a whole other career. He plays for the Philadelphia Eagles.

How About This Little Voice?

Jayna Brown and Jon Dorenbos merely scratch the surface. America’s Got Talent has definitely taken it up a notch and I can’t wait to watch the rest of this season to see what they come up with next.

Is There Such A Thing As Having ‘Too Much Beautiful?’

April 11, 2016 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, Review, Shows, Television

Catching The Catch on ABC, I’ve had to shake my head more than once when I’ve looked at Mireille Enos. In the first episode, she glanced a smile at fiance and professional con artist Benjamin Jones, played by Parenthood star Peter Krause. There was too much beauty on her face at one time. How can someone have that much beauty on one face?

It’s an interesting love affair I have for her. When she doesn’t have any makeup on, I can see the real beauty that lies beneath. But when her face has color and her lashes tease, she does this magical thing that just kicks you in the gut. And when you can’t breathe from a kick in the gut, everything’s beautiful.

how ben conned aliceShe has this sizzling look across her face. Sometimes when she’s smiling, you can’t tell if anger lies beneath the brightness of her face. Her eyes don’t give it away. Your knees just wobble and your heart beats twice as fast like it’s just going to jump out of your chest.

But when she’s mad, you know it. That’s one awesome trick she pulls off nicely. When her face goes solid and her eyes stare at you with the coldness of a woman scorned, hide! Find a place stronger than stone. She’ll cut you down with a look and you’ll never recover. Your heart will be broken if you’re ever on the receiving end of her disdain.

If you haven’t caught up yet, The Catch has an interesting twist. She’s a professional investigator who is the best at getting the con. But this time, the con got her. Played her beautifully from the first moment they met when he got her to come to him. As they explain in the show, that’s how a con gets you. They make you do all the giving, so they never have to ask.

What an interesting concept? She came to him to chase down his business. But, he turned her down as a client to keep the door open. He didn’t initiate a sex life with her. He sat back and relaxed while she climbed on top of him. Wow! This guy is good!

Then, they go into how he didn’t even ask her to marry him. When she flashes back through that conversation, she realizes that she actually asked him to marry her. Whoa! The professional investigator dropped her guard and fell for the best con ever. No wonder she gave him over a million dollars and of course, that’s about the time he split.

But, that’s just the beginning of the story…

Exposing A 17 Year Old’s Nipple Is Unacceptable, Except Of Course If You’re Madonna

March 24, 2016 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, News, Review, Shows

Madonna is the queen of shock value. That is true. But, that was always because it was herself she was exposing.

When she started kissing other stars, that took it to another level. But, that’s okay too. They are legal and that’s a part of entertainment.

This time, it went a bit further. Actually, it stepped into a whole slew of things wrong with it. But, there is a major difference.

First of all, this happened in Australia and the age of consent is 16. So, Australia’s law would only persecute Madonna if the victim complained. Josephine Georgiou is a 17 year old aspiring model who had this to say, “Seriously, why would I sue Madonna for the best moment of my life?”

So, there’s no issue. Josephine just might go on to become a very famous model after this incident and Madonna once again pushes the envelope. So, what’s different?

But, That’s Entertainment

Lady Gaga Brings Down The Tears At The Oscars With ‘Til It Happens To You’

March 3, 2016 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, Music, News, Review, Shows, Society, Television

The message is clear. You don’t know how it feels until it happens to you. What is she talking about?

She’s talking about rape. Finding a credible statistic on rape is difficult because many of them go unreported. The victims might be ashamed. They may not want to put their business out there. They may not want to be dragged through the legal system of getting checked at the hospital, getting interrogated by police, running through that moment over and over again until they just want to scream.

There are plenty of reasons that a rape victim won’t ask for help. But, the U.S. Department of Justice conducted a National Crime Victimization Survey and concluded that over 290,000 people are victims of rape and sexual assault each year. That actually comes out to 1 victim within every 2 minute time frame.

When Lady Gaga took the stage at the Oscars, her performance brought tears to everyone’s eyes. She has a great voice and it’s a powerful one. More performances like this might bring more victims forward. No longer ashamed. No longer paralyzed by that awful moment. But, ready to step forward and do something about it.

If you like this performance, SHARE it with your friends on FACEBOOK and let them catch it too!

When Do We Ever See Anyone Wearing Anything From The ‘Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show?’

December 9, 2015 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, Review, Shows

What is the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show all about? The models wear extravagant clothing on the catwalk that we never see out in public. Only in rare, extraordinary occasions does a celebrity possibly wear an outfit so outstanding.

The normal housewife, the college student, the high-powered CEO, neither of these would be caught dead with a huge set of wings and a hat you have to duck to get through the door. The shoes are too much. The tails are too much. Everything is too much.

Could you imagine someone with wings entering the doctor’s office for their kid’s appointment? Or ten inch heels that could break an ankle? Try to envision someone coming to their kid’s recital dressed like a model in the show or sitting down in a restaurant with a long train covering the aisle.

But, I get it! I definitely do. I’m just ranting about nothing to be funny. Of course, people don’t normally wear the fashion statements that are made at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. But, they catch our attention. The models look great and they get us in the store.

In the store is where there is something for the normal housewife, the college student and the high-powered CEO. It will transform them from having an average day to feeling like the queen of the world. It takes them into a different zone where they can feel special for a moment before they return to their daily lives with a new breath of fresh air, ready to take it all on again.

Victoria’s Secret can go from an extravagant show in December of 2015 to having Christmas gifts under the tree, Valentine’s day gifts the following year and birthday gifts all year long. Not a bad idea to have a fashion show with the most outrageous costumes a designer can imagine. Besides the fact that they put on a very entertaining show with some of the most beautiful models in the world.
