Two-year-old Diogo Mello, armed with a pint-sized ukulele, performs The Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down" with his dad in this video and he absolutely steals the show. It must be tough being so adorable, you know?
What do a heart-wrenching episode of an HBO show, a singing 8-year-old in a music video, and sloths have in common? Absolutely nothing, but we are talking about them this week.
Game of Thrones Reactions
Technically, what happened in last week's episode of "Game of Thrones" was public knowledge prior to its air date, since George R. R. Martin released the third book in his series in 2000. But not all of us have read his novels and instead only watch the HBO series... SO THE EPISODE HURT. I won't say anything except: why? And why am I such a masochist? And why does George R. R. Martin hate us so much? Sigh. Thankfully, I'm in good company. Videos of "Game of Thrones" fans reacting to the episode have made their way around the internet. (NSFW language at the source.) The episode has effectively divided the entire fan base into "show watchers" — people like me, who will not speak of such a mortifying experience — and "book readers" — those who knew what was coming and thought it was toootally funny when the rest of us were horrified. TV watchers unite! ...As we cry ourselves to sleep waiting for the season finale this weekend.
Over the weekend, Beyonce posted a photo of herself drinking wine with Jay-Z, supposedly to prove that she's definitely not pregnant. While I'm kind of bummed, the good news is that Jay and Bey's celebrity couple BFFs Kim and Kanye announced the gender of their baby!
I don't know about you guys, but I have been on the edge of my seat for weeks — weeks I tell you! — wanting to know if Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be having a baby girl or a baby boy. (Just kidding.) On last night's episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," Kim, Khloe, Kris, and Kourtney learned that Kim will definitely be having a baby girl! You know what this means, right? Blue Ivy will totally have a new BFF. Here's a list of names Kim and Kanye could potentially name their little girl:
I watch a lot of television, way too much probably. So over the years I have developed a lot of feelings about some shows, both good and bad. For a while now, I have been wanting to put together a list of my most overrated sitcoms, and after recently watching one of the shows below I got my inspiration.
Just so you know, my definition of overrated is not necessarily that the show is bad, just that it is considered to be way better than it actually is. Some of the sitcoms I mentioned here I actually like to watch, but I still can't ever shake the thought of "how is this show as popular as it is?"
You may not agree with all my opinions on these shows, but once you finish reading my reasoning, you will realize that you were wrong.
#1 - The Big Bang Theory
By far, the most overrated show currently on television. Even the commercials where they are supposed to show one of the funniest jokes from the show are difficult to watch. Example, this awesome banter:
Sheldon: Well, I've just never played Dungeons & Dragons with girls before.
Penny: Oh, don't worry, sweetie. No one has.
Such clever writing.
There is little doubt that the reason this show is so popular is that everything that happens is expected. There is simple one-liners, catchphrases (See: the very annoying "Bazinga"), a pretty girl, and predictable dialogue. The masses eat that up. The fact that Jim Parsons was nominated, let alone actually won, for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series at the Emmys, makes the award less important. He will never, and could never, hold a candle to actors like Steve Carell (Michael Scott on the The Office) and Alec Baldwin (Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock), both of whom he won the award over. Just sad.
I haven't posted a puppy video in a while, so to make up for it, here are three super-cute pugs! The first is of a dog who gets scolded and is really sad about it. Happy Sundog!
No idea if this dog's name is actually Scruffy, but he is so sad when he gets scolded! I think part of it is because his owner sounds like Mr. Rogers... and you'd cry, too, if Mr. Rogers scolded you.
