Fug the Show: Hart of Dixie recap, season 4, episode 2


This was an interesting episode — or, rather, the experience of watching it was interesting. There were parts of it that were legitimately quite funny, other parts were very touching, and everyone nailed it from an acting standpoint. I think the problem (if there was one) was that everyone knew we were going to end up with Zoe telling Wade that she’s pregnant with his baby at the end of it (after all, they’re in love and this is TV), but we still had to sit through half an episode of her NOT telling him, which meant everyone was yelping, JUST TELL HIM at the TV for twenty minutes. On the other hand, I know why the writers had to do it that way — Zoe had to process, etc etc etc — so although I found it frustrating, I also sympathize with why they did it that way, and it all came out right in the end.  With that said, let’s get right into it.

A) Rachel Bilson is REALLY PREGNANT already in this episode, so thank god they’re not going to be pretending she isn’t at any point. I mean, look at this:

No Out of Focus Leafy Tree can conceal that! Unlike the dresser drawer into which Zoe has just swept the 20 pregnancy tests she’s taken, to keep the truth from Lavon. I will extend to the show the suspension of disbelief that no one in BlueBell would notice Dr Zoe Hart frantically buying every EPT in town. (On the other hand, Zoe is kind of a hysterical crackpot — she truly does fit into BlueBell — so maybe they all let this pass regardless.)

Lavon drags her into the kitchen for one of our last moments with Kitchen Pastry (he’s worried that he hasn’t seen her, “even for baked goods”) and so that she and Wade can be awkward and weird with each other, and Wade can tell her that he doesn’t understand how she can go from being in love with him to having an “it’s too late” reaction when he finally returns the sentiment:

And she can be like WELL A LOT CAN HAPPEN IN EIGHT WEEKS WADE A LOT AND NOW IT’S TOO LATE FOR US. Oh, Zoe. JUST TELL HIM.

Speaking of LIES, here’s Henry, Lemon’s Hot Fake Boyfriend:

Best and Worst of the Golden Globes: THE RUN-OFF


Well. After the first round of polling, Worst was pretty much a done deal, but we’re still going from that primary to a general Worst Election. Best dressed, on the other hand? Surprisingly close. Time to choose your choice.

Fugs and Pieces, January 16, 2015


Happy Friday! As a bit of housekeeping: if you entered last week’s giveaway of After The War Is Over, PLEASE check your email! I haven’t heard back from the grand prize winner yet. If I don’t hear by Monday, I will pick a new winner, but if you’re the original one, you will be sad if that happens. That bit of shenanigans taken care of, please peruse:

– WHY YES, I do want to read about the history of the Lifetime movie. (The Washington Post)

– This is interesting, from Vanity Fair: The 9 Hollywood Players Who Might Just Save the Book Industry

– And this is awesome and well worth a read, even if you’re not a football fan: The Green Bay Packers have a long-running and very meaningful to them tradition. It’s a Settlers of Catan game. And apparently, they’re obsessed with it. For example, “Two weeks ago, Linsley won the game, but Bakhtiari, who typically hosts the games at his house, had briefly gone outside to cook a chicken for the group. He furiously protested Linsley’s victory because of this. ‘He put an asterisk by it. I didn’t,’ Linsley said. Backup quarterback Scott Tolzien is famous for slamming the board in frustration when he loses.” (WSJ)

Tatler gives us…the best beauty looks of Joan Collins. BUT OF COURSE.

– In which Food & Wine ranks all of the coffee served on Twin Peaks.

– You probably want to eyeball Chris. Evans, Pratt, Hemsworth. ENJOY. (Lainey)

– This is a DELIGHT: The Weird World of Vintage Poison Rings. I NEED A POISON RING. (Retroette)

– I love these pieces: How to Tell If You Are In a Henry James Novel. For example, “1. You’ve done something in a piazza that renders you unfit for polite company.” (The Toast)

– Pajiba runs down THE MOST EGREGIOUS SNUBS IN OSCARS HISTORY.

– The history of CTRL + ALT + Delete. (Mental Floss)

– Linda Holmes’s take on the trailer for The Boy Next Door is a thing of beauty. (Monkey See)

– In the category, “I’ll Just Leave This Headline Right Here, behold: Tom Hiddleston might have a sex scene with a Victorian ghost in ‘Crimson Peak’ (Celebitchy)

– A woman got a tattoo of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and it is pretty awesome. (Cosmo)

Kate, aren’t you cold? Wait, I retract that. I don’t want to sound like the DMIK, etc, one of which will surely be writing a piece called KATE FREEZES BUMP OFF IN SHOCKING COATLESS JAUNT: Will Wills Step In To Defrost The Spare?!? Maybe she’s just running hot this pregnancy. Maybe she knows we love coats and she’s just f’ing with us. Way harsh, Kate.
