All this talk about clothes and shoes is a tad bit shallow, so I’m introducing a way more intellectual topic onto the blog: brainless TV-shows *hurray*! Even though I study film sciences and am therefore expected to see all sorts of highbrow movies, from the classics to the obscure, I can’t help but enjoy a good mediocre flick or television show every now and then. I function as soaps-and-series-dealer to my housemates and keep a meticulous schedule of what to watch and when to watch it. Sharing is caring, so let’s talk about a few of my favourite television shows from now on. Up for grabs today: Don’t Trust The B—- in Apartment 23.
It’s nice to see one of Blair’s minions in Gossip Girl parting from the Constance playground and getting some actual lines. Hazel sheds the headband and steps out of the shadow of Queen B. Who knew these girls could act? Dreama Walker plays June, the goody-two-shoes girl that just moved to New York to make it. ‘To make it’ quickly turns in ‘to survive’ when she learns not everyone is made of sugar, spice and everything nice after all.
June moves in with long-legged doe-eyed Chloe also known as the bitch in apartment 23. They start off on a bit of a rough patch, but quickly become friends after Chloe sells all of June’s stuff, steals her money and has sex with June’s fiancée on top of her wedding cake. Oh the little things! Kyrsten Ritter, also known as The Bitch, plays a terrific neurotic crazy person. Evidence:
The show is bizarre, to say the least, but in the most entertaining way possible. The cast also includes the obligatory creepy and ever-masturbating neighbour, the stalkerish lesbian down the hall and the former celebrity played by James Van der Beek. Yes, I mean thàt James – I DON’T WANNA WAIT, FOR OUR LIVES TO BE OVER – Van der Beek. If you get past the enormous forehead, VDB is actually quite hilarious. Safe to say Dawson creeks me up! (pun very much intended).
Current location: Amsterdam. Well, by the time you’re reading this I’ll be back behind my desk in Antwerp, but right now I’m preparing this Monday post from my hotel room on the 9th floor overlooking Amsterdam.
