@JoshMBingham @TheFostersABCF Most people were so distracted by the cuddly toy, they couldn't think of much else.Final days with Stephanie,my stand-in since S1. We've had fun hitting cars with baseball bats,bed scenes & being bad! http://t.co/aunaPE4xws
Retweeted by June ThomasThe Fosters always seems to turn into (good era) Scandal, bananas-twists-wise, in the final seconds of the season finale.@JoshMBingham @TheFostersABCF Now I can't get this memory out of my head: http://t.co/OfKlZyZcmF@karabaic @stevensonseth @BetterCallSaul Hello, BCS writers room, we have a new hire for you ...@karabaic @stevensonseth @BetterCallSaul Maybe Kim ends up running a dog sanctuary in Sedona.@EdStern @chrisremo Brits don't have to give up their passports when they become U.S. citizens, but we must pledge to renounce irony.@SebastianNebel For me, he's more the golden retriever you keep at a distance in case he shakes himself off and soaks you in river water.@chrisremo It's funny, because the prevailing tone in the UK is sarcasm. (Or so I recall--it's been a while!)I wrote about James Corden's ultrasincere, golden-retriever-like debut on CBS's Late Late Show: http://t.co/zKMWsuqTBSWhat is "genderqueer"? @v_urq has some answers: http://t.co/zMHcoQbeMv
When 2 Broke Girls makes a Serial joke, a public radio angel gets a tote bag. (Usually "underwriting" means something else at 2BG.)@AbigMESS Ooh! Now I cannot wait to watch!Plumlee of the home team Nets has a head like an Easter Island moai. #Nets323Enraptured Slatesters at the Nets-Celtics game. (I just wish they'd put 2 Broke Girls on the Jumbotron.) http://t.co/1YuVfqRPZhThe long, winding road to a .gay domain continues with a do-over evaluation; @marcparis maintains vigilence: http://t.co/93pxkbXlKR@azchronicler @achilledplum Strongly disagree. Her characters are self-centered; that doesn't mean she thinks that's OK.@azchronicler @achilledplum They're also awesome!.@mjs_DC on a brilliant response to California's "kill the gays" proposal: the Intolerant Jackass Act: http://t.co/lJQedRdJziLovely piece by @achilledplum on the Girls finale: http://t.co/vTn7hUOyuo (And here's me on last week's ep: http://t.co/usgKuDaOp6)
@emilynussbaum @MarkHarrisNYC I agree completely with your last sentence. I've still enjoyed this season less than the others.@estherbreger Oh, yes!@MarkHarrisNYC You and me both.@estherbreger Jessa?I guess if I had to summarize tonight's Girls finale in one frame, it would be http://t.co/BkkBzXAVzf

I was going crazy trying to think who she reminded me of!That's actually a beautiful name. #GirlsBabyThis birth is stressing me out so much I have to keep pausing and restarting. #Girls@tomandlorenzo @moryan So jealous this tweet should be in green.
@Simonhab Ooh, interesting! I had no idea scanners were so sensitive, but of course that makes sense. We'll mention next week.Had to replay local news tease four times before I realized "Prepare the shitter" was "Prepare to shiver." Cold, not salmonella.@DMFWV But they do smoke ganja. I don't, but I do drink alcohol.@DMFWV It's one of the branches of Rastafarianism--kind of the Jainsians of Rasta. Parallel being that they're pretty straight edge.

@BDF331 He's clearly not incompetent. The question is whether he believes in his own skills. Self-belief and self-deception key to Gilligan.@DeboraAZoe @Slate SCRIPTED show, but point taken.In its final season, Glee was the gayest show in TV history: http://t.co/m2iratK5vi (Of course that's a good thing!)On this week's Double X Gabfest: the Ellen Pao trial, choreplay, and maternity leave (with @winterjessica): http://t.co/xjdzjeOzZZ
.@SocialLore on how Dolce & Gabbana's anti-gay statements perpetuate an exclusionary version of the Italian family: http://t.co/1JTEKsSvrk@colm59 It's just a satanic sex ritual. NBD.I endorse this message: http://t.co/16lXcYs6XK Oh, how I endorse it.On this week's Better Call Saul podcast, we called the phone number on Jimmy McGill's bingo cards: http://t.co/6bUKUkdLPSBTW, the warning, "This video contains brief nudity," does not refer to me.

So glad you're enjoying it.
@pollyannaeffect No, I just interviewed the John Logan, the creator, before the premiere. (He's a fascinating guy.)This Thursday's Archer, inspired by a Matthew Rhys anecdote, has a Welsh title. Take that Hawaii 5-0.@thesurfreport Agreed. I'll be sorry to see Betsy out of the picture.@robynexton june.thomas@slate.com Ta!@thrashRadical I'm semi-obsessed with situations that can believably throw people together--Go On's grief group and Siren's EMTs are smart.@TalkingTV She's lovely, but even she can't make this work. I hope she gets another great gig soon.@dianeshipley I know! I really liked talking to her, and I hate to be a hater, but ... I mean, I'll watch again anyway, of course.@KeytarVillain My point being you're right, but it's not as stark as it first appears.@KeytarVillain And lots of the lesbians on TV these days are POC, though typically when the roles are supporting.@KeytarVillain The show isn't good--and the three leads are white--but there are two POC in the three supporting roles.Can a sitcom about a pregnant lesbian rescue NBC from comedy oblivion? http://t.co/L3cimumGOm (Spoiler: No.)@DJFLevesley Ah! (I'm going on a coach trip to Scarborough with my mum in April.)@DJFLevesley PS What's the seaside town in your Twitter background?

@Whopkins37 I deserve a medal!Just saw Ted Allen in Whole Foods. I would've made a Chopped joke, but I'm guessing I was the only person in the entire store who didn't.@woodtang @margeincharge Naturally! I think I saw you Friday but couldn't interrupt your convo. Next time I'll barge in.
@realaxelfoley @thehighsign @dankois So many great actors in that show. And Daniel Baldwin.@jessicagross @thehighsign @dankois I love them. The music is too jangly to sing along to but too specific to ignore. Plus hoolah hoop.@pensomnia Oops! http://t.co/3I1IrItGfP@pensomnia And others not pictured! http://t.co/3o1FtSuFTU@pensomnia Oh, you know it! And a new Classroom Friendly.
