E: Hullo, dance fans! Two hours, two cities, two celebrity superfan judges, and some really smokin’ dance. Not too shabby for a Tuesday night.
E: All the interviews and reports promised it: in the season finale, Alicia will finally make her choice! Our notoriously cagey heroine will pick a side, and lordy but it’s been a long time coming. Fans everywhere rejoiced; even the most hardcore shippers have wilted, exhausted by the love triangle and desperate for the uncertainty to end. Move us forward, Alicia!
And so she did, and it was more purely revolutionary than we could have imagined. I have to say, I am pretty damn stoked; I’ve been advocating for that course for months, but I never thought it would actually happen. We have an answer. Shame on us, though, for asking the wrong question.
E: When did May becomes the best summer movie month? Because the popcorn epics you long to see? They’re in May. Those hot documentaries you want to see to impress your hipster friends? They’re all in May. The sequels? May. May May May May May.
M: Well, given that Star Wars opened in May in 1977, I think it’s been a while.
E: Yes, but it’s not just one movie. It’s at least one every weekend, for five weekends in a row. It’s awesome.
M: As for the “hot documentaries,” as you well know I have little interest in seeing anything to impress any hipsters, friend or foe. I’ll see the documentary if it’s interesting to me.
C: Yeah, hot documentaries seems like a contradiction in terms. And there are some good movies coming in June too. But May is starting off with a bang!
E: Here we are with the second in our series on the Oscar nominees, winners, and the performances that were unjustly forgotten. To see our thoughts on the supporting actor category, go here.
MMGF: So, here we have one of our, shall we say, less competitive competitions? And the Academy obliged by giving us who we all expected.
E: The team turns in a solid episode in preparation for next week’s explosive Chicago Shamrock Dinner. They couldn’t have come up with a more glamorous name for a white tie ball? Guest stars abound, Robyn worms her way further into our good graces, Will and Alicia are awkward, two recurring players get the boot, and Cary has another mountaintop moment.
