Funny Business: Rita Volk Previews Tonight’s Episode of MTV’s FAKING IT

rita volk faking it mtv

Things seem to finally be getting back to normal for Karma and Amy that is if Shane can keep a secret. Last week Shane found out about Amy and Liam’s big secret. It’s only a matter of time before their enormous secret makes its way throughout the school and eventually Karma finding out. Hopefully we’ll see more of that unravel tonight.

I caught up with Rita Volk; one of the stars of MTV’s hit FAKING IT to talk about this week’s episode. We talked Liam’s family, drama auditions, and Laverne Cox. You don’t want to miss tonight’s episode! [Read more...]

Fall TV Preview: MARRY ME

marry-me-s01

Starring: Casey Wilson (“Happy Endings”), Ken Marino (“Children’s Hospital”), Sarah Wright (“Parks and Recreation”), John Gemberling (“Broad City”), Tymberlee Hill (“The Hot Wives of Orlando”), Tim Meadows (“Saturday Night Live”), Dan Bucatinsky (“Scandal”) and JoBeth Williams (“Hart of Dixie”)

Genre: Single-camera comedy

Premiere Date: Tuesday, October 14, 9:00 p.m., NBC

Direct Competition: “NCIS: New Orleans” (CBS), “New Girl” (Fox), “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (ABC), “Supernatural” (CW)

Premise (in 140 characters or less): Jake and Annie are meant to be, or so they think, before each of their marriage proposals go south.

Initial Reaction: “Happy Endings” was ah-mah-zing, and Casey Wilson and Ken Marino are never not funny, so what’s wrong with “Marry Me?” Well, outside of the actors portraying its central duo, just about everything else. [Read more...]

THE ORIGINALS Recap: “Alive and Kicking”

the originals

This season of THE ORIGINALS is starting off just great. Last’s night episode continued to build off the electric season opener. Not only were we gifted with flashbacks the included the real Kol but again THE ORIGINALS (or any show under the control of the My So-Called Company label) showed that it’s not afraid to deal with major plot points head first and quickly. This episode saw Klaus realize that his mother is inhabiting the body of the young witch that is creating moonlight rings for the werewolves and Elijah found out that Mikael is still alive!
