“Hallo. Wine-And-Cheese. Ding-Dong!”

I’ve now finished watching Season 35 of Saturday Night Live (2009), and have to express my disappointment at the dearth of Jenny Slate sightings. After her foul-mouthed flame-out in the premiere, she was mostly deployed as a back-up singer/dancer, and … Continue reading

[Contains possum-rasslin’ SPOILERS!] I’ve just finished watching the second season of Parks and Recreation, and I’m feeling pretty deflated. On the plus side: Amy Poehler remains reliably hilarious (and adorable) as ‘Leslie Knope’, who could well be one of my … Continue reading
