Embrace the Toxicity!

[cue Johnny Nash I Can See Clearly Now] What I said in last week’s recap is even more glaringly and painfully obvious this week. Because of COVID and Matt’s lack of personality, the Evil Genius Producers (EGPs) have decided to turn the DRAMA up to 12 on a scale of 1 to 10 by leaning... Continue Reading →

Release the DRAMA!!!!!

“She’s entertaining men for money.” This was Monday’s cold open. It was also in the prior week previews so you knew it was going to be thing. And the thing that’s becoming a thing is that four episodes into Bachelor in COVID, the thing that we're all dealing with is that: Creating compelling and entertaining... Continue Reading →

As always, Chris' breathless announcements (which he makes self-mockingly) were oversold. That... Continue Reading →
