Bachelorette Tweetcap: Rachel Lindsay, Ep. 1

Instead of our full-length recaps this season, Abby is livetweeting The Bachelor every Monday night. If you watch in real time too, look for @AbZurdity at the #Bachelor hashtag and say hello! But if you aren’t prepared to give up two hours of your life every week, you can catch the Storify of Abby’s tweet […]

With the debut of THE HANDMAID’S TALE on Hulu, the ladies discuss the importance and impact of a treasured and powerful book hitting the small screen.

Bachelor Recap: This is the end, my friends

Ho, ho, ho! What? I’m not accusing anyone–I’m just quoting Santa, who made a guest appearance on the Bachelor finale last night! Guess he has a lot of time on his hands in March. Anyway, here we are, at the end of the road, finally waiting for Nick to get down on one knee and […]

Bachelor Recap: Nick Leaves Us Cold

You guys. YOU GUYS. Tonight’s Bachelor is three hours long! via GIPHY   I mean, seriously. via GIPHY   It’s like via GIPHY So you’re just getting bullet points unless something amazing happens. Look, they’re trying to cancel ACA, I have to practice self-care now. Also, I will just observe that the actual “episode” of Nick […]

Bachelor Recap: From Past Slights to Northern Lights

Hello, Bachelorinas! The universe smiled down upon your exhausted recapper, still recovering from yesterday’s long night of Oscar-watching (and the better-than-Shyamalan twist ending!), and made tonight’s episode only an hour long. Wow, remember when TV used to just be an hour, or sometimes even half an hour? How much more did our forebears accomplish? Boggles […]

Bachelor Recap: Stressing over blessing

We’re back on the long slog of Bachelorizing, as Nick has sent Kristina packing. Rather than bothering to make everyone get all dressed up and stressed when they can already count, he comes back into the house with four roses for the four remaining women, who sigh with relief (or resignation?). Hometowns for all! Nick […]

Bachelor Recap: Why Do I Even Bother?

Before we begin tonight’s what-we’ll-loosely-call-festivities, let’s acknowledge the elephant in the room: the internet has spoiled tonight’s episode, and perhaps the series, by revealing that Rachel will be the first black Bachelorette! On one hand, I’m delighted–she is clearly the best of this batch of contestants, and way too good for Nick. But on the […]

Bachelor Recap: Night of the Long Thorns

It’s been suggested to me that perhaps this show doesn’t warrant a 10,000 word recap as though it were War and Peace. While I think that War and Lust-Mistaken-for-Love-after-Six-Weeks deserves some unpacking, I see the point. So I’m going to rein it in this week and just give you the broad strokes. Like Nick is wanting to […]

Game Time Snack Inspirations For The Win

You’ve probably already got the usual SB Sunday snacks ready and are more than likely looking to indulge in the extra wing or two, but just in case you’re looking for some new recipes, we’ve got you covered!

Bachelor recap: A relationship built on whipped cream and lies

I’ve tried to start this recap three times already, but I’m exhausted from the week’s news, and then Bachelor opens with Taylor and Corinne bitching at each other endlessly, and I can’t even. As predicted, Corinne gets pissed when Taylor calls her immature, so she flips the script and basically tells Taylor that she’s a […]
