I’ve been listening to the Throwing Shade podcast with Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi for a few years now after falling in love with Bryan’s “That’s Gay” segments on the show infoMania on the former Current TV. The show summarizes itself as “taking a weekly look at all the issues important to ladies and gays… and treating them with much less respect than they deserve.” It’s hilarious while also focusing attention on important issues in our culture.
The great news is now they’re branching out into late-night TV! The show will be on TV Land, but unfortunately we’ll have to wait until early 2017 to see it. I’m greatly looking forward to it, and I really hope they keep the same incredibly inappropriate edge they have in the podcast.
A maudlin ending to a pretty maudlin series. Don’t get me wrong, it was a good book, but it just never managed to soar, always weighed down by a dark, hopeless world filled with damaged, dreary characters.
I actually really enjoyed this one, definitely much more than the first one. I still find the main character fairly unlikable, but she’s starting to win me over. I love the idea of doing away with the factions, but I also always suspected there was still a greater world outside of those walls. Plenty of heart, and more than enough action; this was a fun read.
