Eagerly awaiting the return of the fifth season of Lucifer on Netflix, I looked forward to first and foremost the reunion between Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe Decker (Lauren German).

Lucifer Season 5 Part 1 Spoiler Highlights: The Devil's Seeing Double

Finally, the long-awaited fifth season of Lucifer dropped on Netflix this past weekend and like most die-hard fans, I binged the entire season and it was well worth it minus a few disappointments, and yes even a few screaming outbursts at my TV. I'm sure people can sympathize as the last season finale left us […]

RuPaul Body Paint Series Skin Wars Was High on Art, Light on Drama

I'm continuing my deep-dive into "lost" realty gems that are finding new lives via the magic of streaming. This time, I'm taking a look at a quality reality competition to binge: Skin Wars, originally premiering on GSN August 2014 and currently found on Netflix. The show featured professional body painters competing for a chance to […]

The finale of Food Network's Worst Cooks in America brought out the inner child in the recruits.

But before they can do that, they had their […]

Lucifer Season 4 Confessions: Stole Many a Mans Soul to Waste

Lucifer Season 4 Confessions: Stole Many a Man's Soul to Waste

The fourth season of Netflix's Lucifer was an epic, heart-wrenching one filled with betrayal, lust, love, vindictive natures, and (of course) an utterly sexy Lucifer. Chloe (Lauren German) ventures off on a month-long soul-searching journey. After Lucifer (Tom Ellis) shows he really is The Devil and not just an eccentric narcissistic and utterly bizarre partner. […]

Lucifer Season 3 Confessions: Hes Been Around for a Long Long Year

Lucifer Season 3 Confessions: He's Been Around for a Long, Long Year

The second season of Lucifer left us with a very confusing ending when Lucifer (Tom Ellis) wakes up in a desert with his angel wings. WTF? Needless to say (so I'll write it instead), Lucifans were looking to the third season for some serious explaining. This season was bolder, raunchier, and definitely had its share […]

Worst Cooks in America S20 Brought Back Our Bob Barker Feels: Review

Worst Cooks in America S20 Brought Back Our Bob Barker Feels: Review

This week's episode of Food Network's Worst Cooks in America made me nostalgic for Bob Barker, The Price is Right, and his very long, thin mic. Alex Guarnaschelli and Anne Burrell dressed up in shiny game show gear and had the recruits enjoy a fun game of "The Bite is Right." High-quality food was paired […]

Lucifer Season 2 Confessions: Hes a Man of Wealth and Taste

Lucifer Season 2 Confessions: He's a Man of Wealth and Taste

The second season of Lucifer just gets more delicious and sultrier, don't get too excited it gets utterly explicit and raunchy when it transitions to Netflix next season. Of course, we are dying to find out if Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe Decker (Lauren German) strip down their defenses and their clothes. Doesn't quite happen […]

Our Worst Cooks in America Teams Were Crushing Donut Holes: Review

Our Worst Cooks in America Teams Were Crushing Donut Holes: Review

This week on one of the raunchiest episodes of Food Network's Worst Cooks in America to date, the recruits participated in a sausage party. With phallic symbols running rampant, Alex Guarnaschelli and Anne Burrell were knee-deep in dirty stuffing, delectable donuts, and sexual innuendos (they also probably desperately needed a drink). The A-Team duo enjoyed […]

Double the Devil I See What Youre Doing There Lucifer. I Like It

Double the Devil? I See What You're Doing There, Lucifer. I Like It

Well, hello. The long-awaited trailer for the fifth season of Netflix's Lucifer dropped yesterday and… wow. I still have my jaw wide open and probably watched it about seven times already. After having to wait more than a year for its return, feels like the wait was more than worth it. When the series set […]

Worst Cooks in America Season 20 Shock Elim Made Us Cry Fowl: Review

Worst Cooks in America Season 20 Shock Elim Made Us Cry "Fowl": Review

This week on Food Network's Worst Cooks in America, forget cooking: the recruits couldn't get past the wicked plastic wrap and can openers. There was some very deep stress over hot oil on nipples and serious flirting with chicken cutlets. With weak stomachs running amuck and judges Alex Guarnaschelli and Anne Burrell suffering from intense […]

Crazy Delicious Review: A Much-Needed Cooking Comp Palate Cleanser

Crazy Delicious Review: A Much-Needed Cooking Comp Palate Cleanser

A noteworthy show to check out on Netflix is Crazy Delicious. If you're a fan of out of the box cooking shows and beautiful surroundings, I highly recommend it. Fair warning it shouldn't be binged, but rather watched as a nice sporadic treat. The show is hosted by food enthusiast and comedian Jayde Adams whose […]

Ultimate Beastmaster: An Ode to Sylvester Stallone Reality Comp Series

Ultimate Beastmaster: An Ode to Sylvester Stallone Reality Comp Series

Ultimate Beastmaster is truly a masterpiece. Parallels have been made to American Ninja Warrior but Netflix's international phenomenon which includes a 600ft insane obstacle course is truly a beast. The show premiered in the winter of 2017 and featured 108 competitors from 18 different countries and a panel of 12 judges representing six. The hosts […]

Good Eats: Reloaded Season 2 Review: Alton Browns Chocolaty Decadence

Good Eats: Reloaded Season 2 Review: Alton Brown's Chocolaty Decadence

What a perfect way to end the season of Good Eats: Reloaded on the Cooking Channel. Alton Brown revisits his Willy Wonka inspired 1999 episode on all things chocolate. Apparently Brown dreamed of being Willy Wonka when he was a kid, guess this is as close as he was ever going to get to it. I'll […]

Worst Cooks in America Season 20 Review: Way Too Much of a Good Thing

Worst Cooks in America Season 20 Review: Way Too Much of a Good Thing

This week on Food Network's Worst Cooks in America, judges Alex Guarnaschelli and Anne Burrell were stunned by sushi and bento boxes and not in a good way. With Sushi being my all-time favorite food, I was both pleased with learning how to roll and horrified at what a shrimp tempura roll should not look […]

Floor is Lava Review: So Is Stop Touching Me: The Game Show Next

Floor is Lava Review: So Is "Stop Touching Me: The Game Show" Next?

Netflix released a ridiculous obstacle course reality show last weekend, Floor is Lava. As much as I wanted to discount it and tune in to something else, the sheer bizarreness of the competition made me binge the entire season. This show is fun for the entire family, and let me be clear, there should be […]
