Did you watch Lena Dunham on SNL?

I’m a big fan of Girls so I was eager to see how Lena Dunham would do as host of Saturday Night Live.

She was great!

For me, these were the highlights.

First, SNL does Scandal. Watch it here. The casting is great. Sasheer Zamata is terrific as Olivia Pope and Lena cracked me up as Millennial new hire Kelsey.

Second, Hannah in the Garden of Eden. From the first “Adam?” this is gold.

What did you think?

Late to the Nashville party

Do you watch the TV show Nashville?

Via IMDB

I tuned in part way through season 2 and although it was clear I had missed a lot of characters’ backstory, I liked Nashville a lot.

On a recent flight, I had the chance to go back to the start of the show thanks to in-flight DIRECTV. I plowed through four or five episodes beginning with the pilot. I was hooked!

But getting caught up was hard. No Hulu, no Netflix and ABC.com only offers a few episodes free. My options for seeing the episodes were Amazon (not included in Prime) or through Verizon FioS for $1.99 per episode (SD; HD is $2.99 and I’m too cheap for that).

Given that ratings for Nashville have not been spectacular, one would think that ABC could throw would-be fans a bone. But no.

Anyway. I am caught up now and looking forward to more Juliette bitchface. Continue reading

Warning: It’s Juan-uary

The Bachelor returns tonight. And said Bachelor is Juan Pablo Galavis. This guy:

Sexy right? Desiree didn’t get him. Or maybe it was that she couldn’t say his name and thus didn’t see a lasting romance as possible with him.

Do you watch Masters of Sex?

My favorite new show is Masters of Sex on Showtime. Great characters based on actual human sexuality researchers Masters and Johnson, but with terrific actors and compelling [fictional] plots that reflect the times in which M&J were doing their groundbreaking studies.

Mission Accomplished: Attend a Saturday Night Live taping

I’m always excited when I get to cross something off my NYC To Do List. This time it was Item #4: Attend a Saturday Night Live taping.

SNL

Even better, I got to attend SNL dress rehearsal for season 39′s premiere hosted by my idol, Tina Fey. The musical guest, Arcade Fire, added to my excitement.

If you are curious about the experience, keep reading. Continue reading

I have a new chiropractor

That’s exciting, right?

Fortunately he has not put anything up my nose like Chris’ dad on The Bachelorette.

My experience with chiropractic care has been nothing but good. During my dancing years, I went more regularly.

Now I just hope to keep my back and neck feeling good. Maintenance for aches and pains that come from sitting at a desk most days, business travel and the like.

No endonasal cranial adjustments for me though, please.

It started with a tweet.

And then another.

Some friends tweeted back. Continue reading
