Black Widow: A Superheroine Who Won't Get Screwed Over On Screen?

Superhero movies have looked an awful lot like fraternity row the past couple of years, and lots of bloggers (including this female gazer) have been vigorously calling for more celluloid superheroines.  And we're not talking about more characters like Halle Berry's Catwoman.  No way.  We want some quality super women.  But despite the generally underwhelming news on this front as of late, I'm...

Funny Lady Alert!

My crushometer started beeping like crazy this morning, and for once was not this guy. Turns out the perp was Aubrey Plaza, who's sure to appear on many additional love-radars in the upcoming months. Read on for why!

A Feminist Father as a Feminist President

President Elect Barack Obama recently opened his shirt as a superhero president and a letter-writing Dad. 

9021OMG, Feminism?

It's sad to remember how high my hopes were for CW's 90210 last summer. I love Fox's original series, Beverly Hills 90210 (though bad dialogue and one-dimensional characters make for a rocky relationship) and I love Rob Thomas (of Veronica Mars), who was supposed to be writing this thing and making it awesome.

The Box's Crush of the Week: Joel McHale

If you love TV but don't have time to watch all of it, then you should at least be watching The Soup. It's the best way to get caught up on all the bizarre moments you missed on soap operas, obscure reality shows, and even regional morning newscasts. A team of writers and interns for the show actually devotes their day to watching TV and then goofing on it for our entertainment. What better...

Power Pack: The Women of Mad Men

We don't know about you, but we here at Bitch have been on the edge of our mid-century modern seats waiting to hear whether or not Mad Men is being renewed for a third season. Rumor had it that the show might get cancelled, but this Variety article confirms otherwise. Mad Men is coming back!
