Fug the Show: Agent Carter recap, episodes 6 and 7

Better late than never? Fashion Week and the Oscars really got in the way of this one. But the finale, I believe, airs tonight — like, I think it starts now, or in an hour? WELL DONE ME — so catch up if you can! Chad Michael Murray was actually really funny in one of these episodes, and Peggy got to kick some serious tail — including HIS — so a good time was had by all. Except the tail.


Oscars Fugs and Fabs: Everyone Else

As they say at the bar, you don’t have to go home, Oscars, but you can’t stay here. Let’s wrap this awards season up!

Win THE ROYAL WE From Goodreads

Just popping into our Oscars coverage to let you all know that Goodreads is currently giving away fifteen autographed ARCs of The Royal We! (ARCs, for those of you who don’t know, are advance reader copies. It’s basically the second to last version of the book, printed early to go out to reviewers and librarians and book sellers and whatnot, from the draft that happens before our final pass. Which means they’re in short supply and they’re very slightly different from the final copy, which makes them nifty collectors items. Our ARC, for example, has got one section where a VERY IMPORTANT WORD is missing. [Don't worry, we fixed that for the finished copies.])

In case you haven’t heard, The Royal We is our forthcoming novel, which comes out on April 7th.


You can read all about the book here — including all the info you could possibly need about pre-orders — but real quickly, here’s the jacket copy to answer all your questions about what this book is actually about:

Oscars Fugs and Fabs: Black-and-White

We’re at the point in Oscars coverage where all I can hear in my head is Billy Crystal singing, “Oscar OSCAR, who will WIIIIIN.” It’s quite an earworm.

Oscars WTF Carpet: Kat Graham

In the interest of starting on a note of kindness and positivity, I think she looks so striking from the clavicle up. She can really carry off that No Makeup Makeup, which is nearly impossible. HOWEVS:

These kinds of dresses — no, I can’t believe this isn’t the first one I’ve seen, either, but it’s not –always just look to me as if someone is giving saucy rabbit ears to a woman’s torso. It doesn’t seem particularly flattering? I mean, don’t get me wrong: I like a deep vee. But something about this just looks like someone snuck a wedge of dress pie from the sartorial dessert that was cooling off in the fridge. And, great.  Now I want dessert.
