The Problem With Bored Ghostbusters

Article, Editorial / No Comments

There’s a new Ghostbusters movie incoming, one that fills the boots of the titular paranormal exterminators with female ankles and has Bridesmaids and Spy director Paul Feig using his comedy experience to bring it all together. None of this is a problem, of course – anyone who declares that a female-led Ghostbusters won’t work is an idiot – but there could be a tonal issue with the reboot’s approach. The first cast picture from set shows Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in uniform, lined up, looking bored.

And that could be a problem.

After ten long, twisted, weeks there is finally a winner for Big Brother Canada Season 3. And how.

Of course, this being reality television the finale was a two hour show the first ten minutes alone dedicated to recapping the season thus far with dramatic voice overs from the three remaining HGs. And it wasn’t until the last 5 minutes that anything of real importance was revealed.

Well, I shouldn’t say of any importance. We did get down to the business of declaring a final in a fairly timely fashion. Continue reading…

Big Brother Canada ends next week. So if you were watching last night and did some quick math you might have realized that they were going to need to throw out another Twist, Twistos sponsored or not. And so, even though they said the last Twistos Twist! was the final twist of the season we ended up with another one. Double eviction night! Again! Continue reading…

We’ve all been one corner of this particularly hellish triangle. Take two best friends, add in a significant other and lay down an ultimatum. Them or me. Already it’s a hard choice, but throw in the prospect of $100,000 and it becomes impossible.

Which is where we find our houseguests this evening… Continue reading…

All I want to do is talk about the Mad Men finale. And gossip about the Mad Men finale. And gush about the Mad Men finale. I want to speculate about what would have happened if we saw them in the 70s. And that kiss. THAT KISS! But instead I’m going to talk about Big Brother Canada, Sunday’s other thing that happened that most of you won’t watch until later. (sidenote: if you’d rather talk Mad Men, specifically Stan’s ass in those jeans, hit me up on twitter @katarnett)

Suffice it to say that the tables have indeed turned, as they have a tendency of doing in this game…. Continue reading…

If I was being paid to advertise for Twistos I might make a comparison that there are two sides to the Big Brother Canada Twistos Twist!

But they’re not.

So what I will say is that there are good and bad aspects of every Twistos Twist! they’re throwing at the house this year. We can all agree it’s made for some very interesting television, which ultimately is the show’s main objective. But I for one am glad they’re done. Continue reading…

Triple. Eviction. Night.

No one could have seen this coming. In the biggest TWISTOS TWIST! of the season (or of any season anywhere) tonight saw three people hit the bricks. One of which was in tears. If you haven’t watched it yet don’t read any further because I’m about to spoil it for you. Continue reading…
