Move over Intervention, there’s a new reality show (that I will actually watch and enjoy) on A&E! Obsessed is about people with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder who allow themselves to be videotaped and submit to 12 weeks of Cognitive Behavorial Therapy in an effort to get their anxiety down to manageable levels. Meaning, they no longer scrape out their [...]
Has Paul Newman circa 1967 been knocked off the top of moms’ Guys Who Aren’t Your Dad I Want to Do It With list and been replaced by a cross dressing (alleged) cock fiend? The fact that your mom wants to rub one out to Adam Lambert is both a mystery and a phenomenon. [...]
Adam Lambert has been poised to become Your Next American Idol since the top ten was announced. He has the best voice of the lot: a Freddie Mercury falsettOH-my-fucking-god that scrapes the ceiling of the Idoldome and drenches the streets of Miracle Mile. He has Kelly Clarkson presence and Simon Cowell swagger, and he might [...]
After greedily gobbling up the first eleven episodes of Project Runway Canada over the long weekend, like so much lamb with mint sauce, I completely renounce my earlier misgivings that there was no more life left in the concept. There were several challenges borrowed from PR:US and plenty of designers who clearly didn’t know what [...]
Oh Nicki! You sleepy eyed temptress!
For two seasons I despised her character. It wasn’t even a hate-love of a good villain (a la Finch on the UK Office or Cy Toliver in Deadwood). I found her character too conniving to be compelling. But now, I think she’s one of the most exquisitely written characters on [...]
Have you seen Showtime’s newest line up? It’s a vag-bonaza! Even though the network tries to have something for every-type of kitty-cage owner, they all fall woefully flat. Here’s the breakdown of the of lady-centric season if the shows were an archetypal woman:
*The United States of Tara would be the Madonna
*The L Word would be [...]
Paste Magazine has released their 29 most anticipated films of 2009, leading us here at PSI to ask: Whither Nic Cage, Paste? Of the 10 (10!!!) films listed under his name at IMDb with a scheduled release date in 2009, not one appears on this list.
The answer to this condundrum is, of course, that all [...]
In their continuing crusade to eliminate everything that’s at all interesting or unique from their channel, ABC has “benched” one of their signature shows, Ugly Betty, to make room for some sitcom starring the drunken faghag from Will & Grace.
Actually, while this probably would have really upset me last season, this season has kind of [...]
Beloved Lindsay’s takedown on Videogum has forced us to do something we’ve resisted doing for the past year now: Defense one our of guiltiest pleasures, ‘House’. Yes, yes. WE KNOW. We know it’s trashy and absurd especially when compared to gritty, hyper-real fact-checked shows like The Wire. Meanwhile, on “House,” someone’s eyeball pops out of an anus.
Remember when you saw Allison take her first hard-pull of dust-off on Intervention this summer? Remember how it made you feel like you were, to put it in Allison’s slurry words: “walkiinng onnn sunshiine?” Well, Celebrity Rehab is like that — ALL THE THE TIME.
In no way does my adoration for this show come from [...]
