5 Fandom Friday: TV Shows I Would Un-Cancel

Yea, let’s get right back into this Fandom 5 goodness! I can’t wait to see the picks the other ladies in this group have chosen:)

1. Pushing Daisies

Chuck and Ned Foreva and always. Brian Fuller gave us this magic mix of bright color, comedy, and mystery that has been gone for too many years.

2. Agent Carter

Hayley Atwell is Agent Carter. Just completely embodies this character, and no other role can utilize all that is Hayley so perfectly. There are so many stories for this Marvel character to get up to, and this show was at just the beginning of handling them.

3. Dollhouse

Dollhouse is near and dear to me, and I still miss it. Alan Tudyk had so much more to do as alpha, and the show was at once rawly human and a bit hilarious. So, so, beautifully felt and realized through one of the best casts ever.

4. Selfie

Karen Gillan was fresh from Doctor Who when she landed a spot on the Emily Kapnek (Suburgatory) My Fair Lady update with John Cho. This turned out to be an amazing combination which has become a cult classic with new people regularly discovering it on Hulu and loving it.

5. Quick Draw

One of the first Hulu produced shows, Quick Draw went largely unnoticed until being cancelled after the second season. It is an outline only script show riffed off of by a team of comedic improvisers set in an Old West town. There has never been anything else like it, and I adore it with every fiber of my being.

Top 10: Crazy Ex Girlfriend Songs

As a new to Netflix show, I binged my heart out on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Rachel Bloom is a ridiculous talent, with the singing, dancing, writing, etc. And they actually have an Asian male lead:) Hopefully this will last much longer than Selfie, another show I adored.

1. This was a Shit Show

The Greg farewell is my number one favorite in the show so far. West Covina was nice, but he knew it was time to move on. It was heartbreaking, funny, and perfect.

2. Sexy Getting Ready Song

From the very first episode, and into every viewers obsession bank. This ranks among the best lady songs of all time.

3. After Everything I Have Done for You

Paula gets to belt out her frustrations, and it is as impressive as it is terrifying.

4. Love Kernels

Josh’s love is what Rebecca wants most in the world, and watching her try to force it is sad yet relatable.

5. Sex with a Stranger

Anyone can be a murderer these days, but the Becks is especially worried about her Tinder date.

6. The Villain in my Own Story

Self-reflection can be a bitch sometimes, and Rebecca does it full on Musical Theater. Glorious.

7. Research Me Obsessively

So. Real. Facebook etc stalking of an ex’s new flame can be addictive ya’ll.

8. Wheres the Bathroom?

The most amazing character entrance, and lays out how her mother might be behind a lot of her issues.

9. Sexy French Depression

There’s nothing like a black and white depression fantasy parody sequence.

10. Ping Pong Girl

This was super 90s pop rock nostalgia, and lovingly “sporty”.

5 Fandom Friday: Fictional TV Spouses I’d Totally Marry

Happy weekend after Valentines Day! I feel that I need at least a week around Valentines to really start getting in the mood for the holiday. I burn slow, what can I say? With all of the well done tv shows out right now, there are some husbands that make me go awwww every week. It is nice to see men on television that treat their wives well, especially after an era where tv husbands were awful to the wife for comedic value.

Here are some spouses that I would so marry:

1. Greg Otto- American Housewife

This show is about as sweet as it gets. Diedrich Bader as Greg is a professor husband married to Katy Mixon, and they have the best chemistry. The Valentines episode had him as the one who goes all out and gets excited. The man gets into the zone for writing papers by drinking port and standing like Wonder Woman, because he’s awesome. And when his family interrupts his writing, he does not get mad. He redoes his ritual, and continues on.

2. Arthur Tack- Difficult People

Artur works for PBS, and his bowties kill me. He is a supportive, cooking, classic movie loving sweet baby angel. Bonus points for being James Urbaniak.

3. Ben Wyatt- Parks and Recreation

I mean, Adam Scott is the cutest in everything, but Ben Wyatt is his peak form. It is helped by how perfectly he complements Leslie’s personality, and they become one beautiful beast.

4. Terry Jeffords- Brooklyn 99

Terry Crews is my everything. On Brooklyn, his husband and father skills are showcased perfectly. Does he lose it sometimes trying to make his babies a princess castle? Yes. But, this just makes him more perfect.

5. Burt Chance- Raising Hope

Burt is a strange and wonderful husband in one unique and badass marriage. Growing up is fine, but being able to be childish and play with your spouse is freaking magical.

Saturday Night Live Dream Host List 2017

It was fun coming up with another bunch of suggestions for Lorne Michaels to hopefully take into consideration. Again, for the sake of simplification, I chose three hosts for every month that SNL tends to air.

New rule this time: There is no one on this list that has hosted before. For a few, it was very surprising, but here are my picks for crazy talented people and first time Saturday Night Live Hosts:

September

Rachel Bloom

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is amazing, and this girl even auditioned for SNL. Rachel can sing, dance, and write some funny truths, making her the perfect premiere host.

John Boyega

How has this sweet baby angel of a man not hosted yet? Is his glee not infectious? Is he not of the Star Wars clan? And British?! Do it.

Chelsea Peretti

Chelsea has worked with Andy Sandberg on Brooklyn Nine Nine for four years, and in doing so, built her character Gina into the Goddess of all. Gina is the MVP glue of the magic that is the Nine Nine.

October

Retta

Donna from Parks and Recreation is my everything. That Woman can get it. I saw Retta on a recent Late Night with Seth Meyers episode and it reminded me how damn hilarious she is.

John Slattery

This man is a hot mess. After seeing him in different states of ruffled, I wish to see him take on SNL. Badly.

John Mulaney

Oh, the bridesmaid that was never a bride. Mulaney was a writer on SNL for years until he moved on, never making it to featured player. This was a shame, and I would like to see it rectified.

November

Miranda Hart

The BBC series Miranda is the perfect showcase for her awkward brilliance, and she killed it as Melissa McCarthys backup in Spy.

Keanu Reeves

Can you believe he’s never hosted? After the John Wick movies, you know you want this.

Terry Crews

The talented papa bear that is Terry Crews hosting the Thanksgiving episode? Yes.

December

Clark Gregg

Clark is one of those improv and classically trained actors. So strange, and so good at delivering.

Tituss Burgess

If you do not see why he belongs here, out with you!

Rachel Dratch

Dratch Christmas? You’re welcome.

January

Michaela Coel

After Hulu’s The Aliens and Netflix’s Chewing Gum, I am so onboard with more Michaela.

Krysten Ritter

She is lit with some serious fire, and so knows how to aim it.

Liev Schreiber

Leiv is the personification of naughty humor wearing a monocle.

February

John Cho

I could list Star Trek, but the main reason Cho earned his place on my list is Selfie. It was a show that died too young, and it made me fall so in love with him.

Christina Hendricks

Valentines Day episode? Bring in the badass redhead.

Rashida Jones

Need. This.

March

Donald Glover

I mean, right?

Allison Dunbar

Allison is very intimidating. She is a Groundlings trained improv that also Burlesque dances. The awesome of that baffles and amazes me.

Dev Patel

Again, I am curious as to how Dev would play with the SNL crew. I feel that they would gel together beautifully.

April

Andre Braugher

How has this man not won an Emmy for his Brooklyn Nine Nine role?!

Ruth Negga

I’m just plain obsessed with Ruth:)

Glen Powell

My sugar angel sunshine. Everybody Wants Some and Scream Queens are full of funny actors, but Glen stands out. So much, it’s almost creepy.

May

Katy Mixon

So perfect for the Mothers Day episode. Katy was boss in Mike and Molly, and she rules in American Housewife.

Vanessa Hudgens

Fresh off playing Gigi on broadway, this girl is taking her role in Powerless and having so much fun with it.

Larry Wilmore

Larry so deserves the finale spot after his Nightly show got cancelled. This man can write a skit like nobodys business and deliver the hell out of it.

Bonus Want:

Please just make Leslie Jones and Cecily Strong the co-hosts of Weekend Update already.

5 Fandom Friday- Galentines Gifts

Happy almost Galentines Day, my ladies of fandom! I love that this weeks prompt celebrates the fact that Parks and Recreation made a legitimately awesome new holiday for us to enjoy.

1. Bling Sting Alarm

Super cute and loud as hell if need be, this is perfect to clip on a purse or belt loop.

2. Hark A Vagrant Print

For $16, you can get a print of any Hark a Vagrant comic. Kate Beaton is hilarious and I can find a print for any of my friends here.

3. My Favorite Murder Pillow

Yes, I am obsessed with this podcast. Yes, I have been drawing as many other people into it with me as possible. Why? Because I must. Karen Killgariff and Georgia Hardstark talk about murders and whatever else catches their fancy. And they happen to be funny as hell, just a couple of straight talking ladies trying as best they can to avoid being killed. “Stay sexy, and Don’t Get Murdered” is their tagline after all. Their merch is adorable, and all profits go to charity.

4. Bee and Puppycat Sword

This totally looks like it belongs in a She-Ra cartoon, and I love it. Puppycat power!

5. Lisa Frank Stationery Set

I know, I’m in a very pink friendly place in my head right now, and it seems I’m not the only one with the Frank resurgence and all. It’s funny because I grew up when Lisa Frank was first popular, and I had zero interest. Now I see it and go “Ohhh the colors and the prettty, give it.”

5 Fandom Friday: Upcoming TV Shows I Can’t Wait to See!

I am so loving getting back into the 5 Fandom Friday spirit:) There are definitely plenty of tv shows to come that look interesting, but few that truly call to me. Here are my fave picks this year:

1. Great News

Tina Fey is involved, and that is all that I really need to know. That lady rules over my sense of humor. Her Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt had a second season even better than the first; how does she do that?? Featuring Briga Heelan, Andrea Martin, John Michael Higgins, and Horatio Sands, Great News is premiering on NBC April 25th and I can not wait.

2. Riverdale

I am watching the premiere tonight, and I am fangirling hard. Archie comics were staples throughout my girlhood, and the Twin Peaks supernatural vibe added to the Riverdale universe just feels right. So, so right.

3. Legion

This looks insane and amazing. I expect to have no idea what is real and what is not, and to have a lot of dry Aubrey Plaza moments. Killer.

4. American Gods

The cast for this already makes it a winner, so I am very hopeful. If anyone has a chance of successfully adapting and bringing American Gods to the screen, it is these people.

5. Santa Clarita Diet

So this was a surprise. One day the promo popped up on my Facebook feed, featuring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant in a funny literal zombie suburbia. Love it.

Honorable Mention:

Golden Girls

All of the seasons will be on Hulu Feb. 13th! Yes. Finally, my Golden Girls needs will be fulfilled, and I will emerge all the classier for it.

5 Fandom Friday: Films I’m Excited to See in 2017

There are so many movies that I want to see this year, it’s ridiculous. I am sure that there are tons of other movies not on my radar yet that I will soon fangirl over as well. Let us revel together in 5 Fandom Friday land:

In order of release:

Lego Batman

Will Arnett is my favorite Batman right now, and probably for the foreseeable future as well. The trailer played in theaters is so hilarious and cute; it is exactly what I need.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Drax, you are my precious. Can’t wait to play with this gang again.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

The first Kingsman was a manic funbundle of a spy movie semi-spoof. It is a glorious Matthew Vaughn, and I have high hopes for the sequel with Channing Tatum. That man has epic comic talents.

Thor: Ragnarok

Mark Ruffalo and Chris Helmsworth buddy movie? Sold.

Star Wars VIII

The next Star Wars will be bittersweet, with the loss of Carrie Fisher. It will not add to my already high expectations of this film, it will just add a bit of emotion and crying. Deserved, deep crying, with my fist in the air screaming “Go, Carrie, you Badass! Jedi mind that asshole!” (We all know General Leia totally has covert Jedi skills)
