Fug the Show: How To Get Away With Murder recap, season 1, episode 4

Jessica and I recently concluded that Viola Davis’s performance is accomplished, yes, but also extremely curious — because she’s so AGGRAVATED-seeming all the time, as if she read the script and went, “Ugh, Annalise clearly hates all these morons.” Between that and the way she walks like her feet hurt, Annalise comes across less like a dynamic, compelling, charismatic force of nature, and more like she’s both existentially exhausted and exhausted by everyone’s stupidity.

Moving on: As with the latest Nashville, there was a Wig Removal in this episode. I kept hoping it was going to be this guy.


I feel like a golf video: I just want to grip it, and rip it. I could wring it out and have enough oil to cook dinner. I THINK the implication is that he ran over to his pseudo-boyfriend’s apartment — it is, as Jake Ballard would say, a booty call — but he spends a LOT of time looking like his personal odor is troublesome.

Fugs or Fabs: Blake Lively in Gucci Cruise

At some point, I expect a statue of this exact photo to be available for purchase on Whittled to lifelike perfection by an artisanal ant colony and scented lightly with vanilla.

Fugs and Fabs of the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards: Part One

This dress on Jennifer is Oscar de la Renta, and given that she does usually have to sail on the S.S. Dior, I choose to believe it was a last-second tribute. Sniffle.

There were pictures of her smiling, and she seemed very cheery at the event, but this was the best view — at least at the time of this writing — of her whole outfit. And so I envision her standing there, posing, dreading the inevitable raised eyebrows and questions about her new relationship. “I thought you’d be wearing yellow,” someone might say. Or, “What time is it? Has anyone checked the clocks?” Or, “Holy crap you’re dating Chris Martin what is THAT like does he burn macrobiotic cookbooks every night and post anti-health food comments on websites all day TELL ME EVERYTHING.”

And, at the end, a special episode of We Need To Talk About Renee.

Fug In Love: Beyonce

Well, I can’t argue with her legs.


But if that romper were any shorter, it would be a swimsuit — which is a shame, because the top part of it is really cute. Unless your waxer’s number is written on your upper thigh in exchange for a free treatment, one’s shorts do not have to be the same length as one’s bangs. That rumor is a lie.

Recent Fugs and Fabs: Jaime King

While I am sad that Hart of Dixie has wrapped what is likely its last-ever season, it DOES at least free up Lemon Breeland for a lot more gallivanting. Which she does so colorfully.
