The Apology First let me start by apologizing for this delay. I’ve been a bad blogger. You start off blogging about this show, then people want to watch it with you, then you become the dude with Bachelor viewing parties every Monday, then you can’t get people out of your place in time for you to write...

Getting Punishment from "Fifty Shades of Grey"

Getting Punishment from "Fifty Shades of Grey"
I went to see Fifty Shades of Grey. Part of me wanted to go because this is the most hyped cinematic event in erotic novel adaptation history.

So this week’s going to be a little different. At least according to Chris Harrison, “This week’s going to be a little different.” So predictable, Chris.

Week 3 is where we typically start seeing some surprises. Sometimes it’s a surprise, competitive twist in a group date. Maybe it’s the classic surprise concert from some band that typically only regulars in the band’s hometown watering hole have ever heard of. So what surprise are we in for this season? Jimmy Kimmel?

The Bachelor Recap: Episode 2 "You have to find your own truth"
Allow me to apologize. I’m sorry I was absent last Tuesday from this recap. I tried my best to sequester myself with Farmer Chris and The Bachelor in front of the bedroom TV.

Wow, when philosophers examine the delicate passing of time, I’m starting to wonder if they’d find the most extreme results in a study of an NFL Season.
