Happy June, y’all! Summer is upon us, and here’s the latest pop culture shenanigans to get you through your weekend!
-If you were worried you didn’t have anything to binge-watch this weekend, then have no fair! Season 2 of Orange is the New Black is now streaming on Netflix for your viewing pleasure! Nina and myself will be delving into it this week and will give you our thoughts ASAP!
-The film adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars is also out this weekend, so go give yourself a good cry and check it out.
-Lots of fun Star Wars news out there! Pictures from the set getting leaked, speculation over whether the Millennium Falcon will appear in the film, and both Gareth Edwards and Joshua Trank are on board to direct their own separate Star Wars “stand-alone” films, whatever the hell that means. Is the Star Wars universe going to resemble something like the Avengers universe? Let’s just see this next movie, and then we’ll talk.
-Last weekend, Jonah Hill used an offensive slur against a paparazzi who was harassing him. In response, Hill was super classy about the whole thing, and gave the sincerest of sincere apologies for the incident on The Tonight Show. Class act, Jonah.
-Comedian Patton Oswalt is taking a self-imposed leave-of-absence from social media, feeling that he has gone a little overboard with his Twitter trolling. We’ll miss you this summer, Mr. Oswalt. Hopefully you’ll be back soon enough with your wit and cynicism.
–Game of Thrones is OFFICIALLY the most watched HBO show EVER. I would like to think our episode recaps have been playing a huge role in this achievement, just saying.
-What is the official “Song of the Summer?” Nina (and many others) are convinced that it’s “Fancy” by Iggy Azalea. I’m on a mission to find something else. Please, God, something else.
More TV recaps (Game of Thrones, a wrap-up of Louie), Summer movie reviews, and yes, our search for Song of the Summer, will be coming your way, so stay tuned!
