Tube Tied: I Love Dexter And I Don't Care

The fourth season of Dexter premiered this Sunday, and I was rather more excited about it than I would like to admit.  I started watching back in the day because it was Michael C. Hall, and I was a Six Feet Under fan from waaaaayyy back, and I made it my business to ensure that the wonderful actors... Read more »

Drinking Like Mad Women

In a world where feminism means a zillion different things to a zillion different people, there is really only one thing that it seems we feminists can agree on these days. That thing? That Mad Men is f#@$ing awesome. We love it. Feminist blogs... Read more »

The Body Electric: On "9" and Its Canvas-Bodied Heroes

  Though I appreciated and enjoyed "Wall-E," I took issue with the baffling insistence of the filmmakers to gender the robots. A love story between machines is an interesting prospect with very queer implications, but clearly signaling gender seems like a counterintuitive safeguarding against an... Read more »

Tube Tied: Is Lost... Lost When It Comes to Women?

Here's my transparent attempt to segue into an untimely essay about Lost (which won't premiere until January but my guestblogging stint ends next week): the promos for Flashforward were so ubiquitous - I first remember seeing one after the Lost finale in May - that I found myself watching it...

I Can Has Feminizm?

It’s finally here, the moment you’ve been waiting for all week long. No, we’re not talking about tonight’s episode of Mad Men (but omg what is going to happen to Joan?), we’re talking about FEMINIZT LOLZ!!! Why? Because LOLz are watching even when we aren’t.... Read more »

Tube Tied: Eastwick Has Got Some Seriously Empowerful Witches, Y'all

I'll admit that I only really tuned into Eastwick out of a sense of national duty - Paul Gross, like me, is Canadian, and I feel he is owed some serious cash for his talents, wasted though they might be on American network television.  (Canadian television has no such riches on offer.)  Gross was...

Tube Tied-The Good Wife: She's Actually Pretty Boring So Far

The psyche of the political wife in the modern era - which is to say, post-defining oneself by one's husband - is the kind of thing I sort of wish feminists talked about more often.  And when I say that, I mean talk about in a way that does not ultimately devolve to Hillary, Hillary, and also...

Diablo Cody Takes on the Wakefields

Those of you who lost your wetties over Kjerstin’s and my pan of Jennifer’s Body (one Twitter follower says she “doesn’t want to know [us] anymore.” Move on.org already, amirite?) can take heart in the fact that we are not... Read more »

Tube Tied: Oh, Oprah.

Today, Oprah will be airing an interview with Mackenzie Phillips.  Who is that, you say?  She is a former child actress who also, coincidentally, happens to be one of the many children of the late John Phillips of The Mamas and Papas.  Like most former child actresses, her personal life has been a...

Jennifer's Body was a bummer. I mean wettie-killer.

This movie should have been awesome! Like many feminist blog readers and pop-culture junkies, Kelsey and I have been following the hype on Jennifer’s Body , starring Megan Fox as a cheerleader-turned-flesh-eating-demon and Amanda Seyfried as her loyal but mousier (Hollywood mousier) BFF,...
