The Super Bowl has evolved from a football championship game to an annual popular culture event. Even people who aren’t sports fans host Super Bowl parties and watch for the big-budget halftime performances (this year it’s Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers) and some of the most entertaining commercials of the year.  

Let's Hear It for the Girls

Could this third season of Girls (10 p.m. Sundays, HBO) be the strongest yet? We’re only two weeks and three episodes in, but it’s obvious the show is evolving — along with the Girls themselves.

Spoiler Alert: Sherlock Holmes is alive. OK, obviously BBC’s original series Sherlock (10 p.m. Sundays, PBS) would not have continued onto a third season if its namesake character was really dead.

I Just Can't Get Enough

Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings

Apparently Lady Gaga did damn well as host and musical guest on this week’s Saturday Night Live, because I keep seeing stories like this praising her. I don’t know for sure, though, because I fell asleep on the couch at 10:30 p.m. and woke up just before 1 a.m., just in time to see something that has recurred in my nightmares ever since: Yeah, that’s Gaga performing “Do What U Want” with R. Kelly, a single off her new album Artpop. The two engaged in a really weird sexual…something onstage, and shit just didn’t feel right. Perhaps it’s not Gaga simulating robotic sex with the R&B star that troubles me, but the notion of R. “I will pee on you” Kelly announcing that he will do what he wants to your body. *Shudder* Somebody wake up Dave Coulier, because Alanis Morissette’s quintessential slice of ‘90s goodness that is Jagged Little Pill is becoming a musical. American Horror Story: Coven has been getting better and better by the week. We’ve seen zombies and real monsters pulled from history as the witches of Miss Robichaux’s Academy hone and develop their powers and discover new enemies. But the mellow Misty Day has been my favorite character so far. The Stevie Nicks-obsessed necromancer played to perfection by Lily Rabe has been shunned by society and, thus, doesn’t know much about other witches. She leads a lonely life in a little backwoods cabin reviving dead swamp creatures and jamming to Fleetwood Mac. Her role has become abundantly more vital to the story, so it only makes sense that the witchy woman herself, Stevie Nicks will make her acting debut on an upcoming episode. Surprise! A comically wigged Alexander Skarsgård and Lindsay Lohan (who does not require accessories to play a joke character) played Kenny Powers’ grown children on the Eastbound and Down series finale. The Real World is getting even realer next season (not) with The Real World: Ex-plosion. Taking place in San Francisco (returning for the first time since 1994’s third season with Puck and Pedro), this 29th (!!!) season will start like every other: with seven strangers — seven young, attractive, easily influenced strangers — moving into a gigantic house with an disproportionately small number of bedrooms, furnished by the Target clearance aisle, perpetually stocked with booze and Sun Drop, conveniently located within walking distance of a Subway.                                                     Four of the seven list "model-slash-something" on their resumes. But when the roomies take a trip four weeks into their stay, they will return to their makeshift home full of their ex-boyfriends and -girlfriends. Because there really weren’t enough nonsensical drunken physical altercations in any of the past Real Worlds or challenges. The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was last week (to be aired on Dec. 10 on CBS) featuring a dozen or so very hungry women, one $10 million bra, a liberal definition of angel wings, Lisa Frank-inspired looks and Taylor Swift. So if you’re a 12-year-old girl, which clearly should be Vicky’s target audience, this will be right up your alley. Photos from Jezebel here. Kanye West premiered his new music video, “Bound 2” on Ellen this week (for real). This vid starts out on a high note, with several shots of pretty, wild ponies and a lovely sample from Brenda Lee’s 1959 song, “Sweet Nothings” (“Uh-huh, honey”). But then a fake motorcycle and a jiggling Kim Kardashian sporting The Rachel cut pop up, and they all ride off on the Hot Mess Highway. Kim forgot her shirt, so she has to ride backwards, straddling Kanye, to protect her modesty. They must be in the middle of nowhere, too, because Kanye does not seem concerned that his driving vision is severely obstructed by his fiancée's bouncing boobies. Seriously, though, did they make it in a mall video booth? Super sorry to the 10-year-old whose birthday was booked right after this session. I could only imagine it would be really slippery in there. This week in classic local Craigslist finds, someone in the area is looking for the best Chewbacca impression. Winner gets $100. Details here.
 
 

Lizzy Caplan Shines as '50s Sex Researcher

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 13, 2013
Combining dramatized history, a late-’50s American setting and the topic of sex is guaranteed to attract an audience to nearly any show. But Masters of Sex (10 p.m. Sundays, Showtime) delivers beyond these popular tropes to explore the real-life early scientific study of human sexuality.
