3 Aug

Shows back from summer hiatus while others come closer to their end. Plus cast reunions, dancing, fancy dinners at the White House and more from this week’s TV Instagram highlights.

I love these babies! #youretheworst

A post shared by Kether Donohue (@ketherdonohue) on

 

You’re the Worst returns this month – August 31 – and I cannot wait; just look at these faces. All the heart emojis. Catch up on Hulu now and in the meantime I will be listening to this season 2 credits music playlist to get in the mood.

Taking a break on the set of season three. #youretheworst

A post shared by You're The Worst (@youretheworstfxx) on

 

But wait! There is more You’re the Worst cast antics on Instagram and I spy sunglasses to covet on Aya Cash’s head.

 

Keeping with the sunglasses trend and adding a big dose of “holy crap this is adorable” from Lucy Liu with her son Rockwell on the set of Elementary.

 

Fun getting ready pictures of Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys’ trip to the White House last night from hair stylist Brian Magallones. Cue every Russian spy joke ever and it would appear that the Obamas are fans of The Americans as they scored a prime spot at the state dinner table. Excellent dress choice by Keri Russell and a nice prelude to the Emmys next month.

I did a thing….. 💆🏼

A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on

 

Sometimes a hiatus beard happens (see Matthew Rhys) and other times in between seasons a different dye job is the thing (or this could be work related). Regardless, from this obscured shot the blonde looks great on Sophie Turner.

Keeping promises. Indy my #DornishQueen

A post shared by Pedro Pascal (@pascalispunk) on

 

While we’re on the subject of Game of Thrones here is a fun reunion.

 

This is actually from the Fast and Furious set, but Tormund would look great with a wolfie of his own as this photo shows.

 

It can be dangerous as well as super stylish on the set of BrainDead.

 

OITNB cast closeness continues even when one of them is away.

 

I am so glad I am all caught up on iZombie for a number of reasons. One is that I get to enjoy these delightful “behind the brains” shenanigans.

 

Oh there’s more dancing.

 

And sneaky eating. Craft service would easily be my downfall. Just look at all those pastries.

Happiness with @shiriappleby 📷:@russlamoureux

A post shared by Constance Zimmer (@constancezimmer) on

 

There have been a lot of missteps on UnREAL this season including keeping Rachel and Quinn apart and at loggerheads. The end of this week’s episode included a really satisfying moment that doesn’t erase everything that has come before it, but it felt good to see them together again. Also this is a really nice photo of Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby.

 

Joining the shows that are no longer on summer break; New Girl.

 

Last Man on Earth is also back from hiatus and January Jones continues her reign as Insta Queen.

 

While other shows are nearing their very end.

Just because @demianbichiroficial #neverforget

A post shared by Diane Kruger (@dianekruger) on

 

And in shows/onscreen pairings that I miss we have Diane Kruger and Demián Bichir back on The Bridge.

 

For a closer look at some of the Emmy nominated costumes including this personal fave head to the Costume Designers Guild Awards page for a lot more treats.

 

This photo of Michiel Huisman led to a very fun conversation about dudes in sweaters on Twitter last week and I thank him for that much needed break from work.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

14 Jul

Lots of behind the scenes treats this week including soon to be returning shows such as You’re the Worst and Looking (in a one off movie form). Plus the first table read of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season 2 and a whole lot of style highlights from Instagram.

 

Aya Cash gives an inside look into the different types of cover ups worn when filming sex scenes on cable and on network. Yes I googled (or rather Binged as I’m on my mother’s laptop and maybe on a CW show from two years ago) Shibue; they have a lot of products.

 

All the LOLs at Aya Cash and this not so subtle shade throwing.

 

I am already highly anticipating this episode. As I mentioned last week 2 Dope Queens turned my teary state into a much needed moment of laughter and this is one of many endorsements I have for this podcast.

 

The Looking movie is almost here and while I am not ready to say goodbye, I am ready for all the behind the scenes photos like this.

 

BrainDead is a lot of fun and pretty much the ideal summer show. It doesn’t entirely know what it wants to be tonally, but I could watch Aaron Tveit and Mary Elizabeth Winstead heating up the screen all day long.

 

And the Orange is the New Black cast are back on set for season 5.

 

UnREAL hasn’t been hitting the heights of season 1, but this week’s episode was a turn in the right direction and the it happened to be directed by none other than Shiri Appleby who crushed it (and me) both in front of and behind the camera.

 

Busy Philipps is on a dress hot streak of late and this is yet another reason to fire up that 100 emoji.

 

Busy Philipps is also killing it in the robes stakes and I’m gonna go ahead and add this to the robes I love list.

On the way to cacio e pepe in MA, babies! ❤️

A post shared by Jenny Slate (@jennyslate) on

 

Jenny Slate delivers us a good example of a great cooking look.

 

I finished Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (which I love) and now I get to follow Rachel Bloom on Instagram! Season 2 table read time!

 

Also on the recently followed list and I am so ready to look back at the many varied costumes on Sex and the City.

 

Also looking back as yesterday was the fifteenth anniversary of Legally Blonde and Reese Witherspoon celebrated in style with an Elle Woods costume retrospective including this bikini number.

22 Jun

Between Orange is the New Black and “The Battle of the Bastards” there was a lot going on this week on TV and this edition of “Behind the Insta-Scenes” has got you covered on both. Plus we’ve got shows that are currently in productions, ones that have just finished and lots of other fun stuff is on the Instagram highlights menu.

 

It’s all fun and games in Maureen when things aren’t getting set on fire/people aren’t being stabbed.

 

A “How to Get Blood out of Your Beard” tutorial is probably needed for the Game of Thrones guys and it is good to see all is crazy in love when the camera stops rolling.

 

And now for a “Who Wore it Better?” Battle of the Bastards edition (Part 2).

Party Party Party Parade❤️🍊❤️🍊

A post shared by Natasha Lyonne (@nlyonne) on

 

I have a lot of feelings about this new season of Orange is the New Black and I don’t want to say too much for those who have not finished yet, but I am very happy the OITNB cast have been posting photos like the one above. Need this moment of happiness.

w my boo 😚

A post shared by Kimiko Glenn (@kimikoglenn) on

 

And adorable ones like this, which is also from the New York premiere.

 

Adding to the feelings scale is the Orphan Black season 4 finale and thanks for the flowers Tatiana!

 

Now for shows currently in production and this bts shot of Justin Theroux from season 3 of The Leftovers. As Theroux points out; no handcuffs (or shirt) necessary.

 

After recently marathoning my way through the first two seasons of iZombie I’ve still got that post-watch emptiness (see also OITNB) so even though there isn’t a season 3 premiere date yet, it is good to see some of the cast back on iZombie duty.

 

There are lots of reasons to be excited about this new season of You’re the Worst and one of them is this amazing casting news.

 

On BrainDead Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Tveit danced together. It was magical. As is this prom style pic.

 

While a lot of the FNL cast were in Austin for the ATX Television Festival; Aimee Teegarden, Taylor Kitsch, Zach Gilford and Minka Kelly were taking part in the Spartan Race. Another reunion I can get behind. Even with Kitsch’s mustache.

 

This is from a couple of weeks ago (when I covered the outfits from this event), but somehow I missed it and I’m making up for that now.

 

Joshua Jackson and Kiernan Shipka doing their best January Jones pose might be my new favorite thing.

 

The way to get two entries is to quote from Overboard. Always an instant YES in my book/blog.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

14 Jun

A day earlier than the usual Behind the Insta-Scenes posting time and that’s because it has been jam packed with the ATX Television Festival in Austin delivering on the TV reunion front. Plus the Tony Awards and other great TV related hangouts.

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts… @atxfestival

A post shared by Scott Porter (@skittishkid) on

 

The ATX Television Festival provided a whole lot of feelings all over Instagram (I would be a mess if I was there IRL) and the Friday Night Lights reunion was the number one source.

reunited and it feels pretty good #husbands

A post shared by mae margaret whitman (@mistergarf) on

 

Also from Austin we’ve got Mae Whitman bringing together two parts of the Jason Katims TV map. I really like her glasses.

 

In more excellent TV reunion photos with the ladies from Ugly Betty and one boozy hangout dream scenario; Vanessa Williams AND Judith Light.

 

Posing up a storm and the UnREAL cast continues to crush all things on Instagram (also this week’s episode is SO great).

 

Danai Gurira was one of our Tony Awards red carpet faves and not only is she delivering on the excellent Insta multi group shots, but she’s also given us a getting ready photo diary over at Vogue.

 

In non-shocking news to regular readers, but I adore this selfie. And everything about this friendship. Michelle Williams’ lipstick looks even better in close up.

One last one from last night.

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

 

This is also really wonderful and showcases the hell out of Busy Philipps’ amazing frock.

 

More in the Tony selfie stream and Lucy Liu was one of the yellow frock delights from the night.

 

Lupita gifts us with a Tonys dress and accessories still life; such exquisite and detailed work.

 

Glenn Close looks amazing and in a ‘stars they’re just like us’ moment she’s seen her clutching heels rather than wearing them after a big event (I normally last 2 hours, maybe 3 if/when the booze kicks in).

 

Busy Philipps has the Jane Eyre Olympia Le-Tan book cover clutch and this Bell Jar one (as mentioned in this Tonys post) is my ultimate clutch wish list item.

They didn’t get a chance to work together on The Good Wife, but I am so here for this.

Dazed and bloody… Ep10

A post shared by Sam Heughan (@samheughan) on

 

A well earned coffee break on the set of Outlander.

 

You’re the Worst is now shooting season 3 and I cannot wait for more. Love the slippers, Kether.

 

BrainDead started last night and I liked the pilot a bunch; the leads are great and former Good Wife costume designer Daniel Lawson is giving me a whole new blazer wardrobe to covet.

 

Behind the scenes of this fantastic New York Magazine Tracee Ellis Ross photo shoot gives the bonus of seeing Ross dancing to Beyoncé.

Lots of returning shows, endings, beginnings and other pivotal TV moments captured on Instagram this week. With a dash of Coachella, style highs and other on (and off) set shenanigans.

R U WATCHING!!?? #UnbreakableKimmySchmidt #netflix 😻

A post shared by Anna Camp (@therealannacamp) on

 

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is back and unlike Daredevil S2 I haven’t stalled at the halfway mark (I’ll get back to Daredevil, but there are just so many other shows taking priority right now). Kimmy starts off on the patchy side as one early plot doesn’t quite stick the landing, but the jokes are stacked and so wonderfully random at times. I am still thinking about the Rob Kardashian sock designer reference. Kimmy’s style has given me lots of inspiration for spring and Anna Camp is an A+ guest star choice.

 

And while we’re on the subject of amazing Kimmy Schmidt guest stars; I yelled WHAT?! so loud at my screen that I had to rewind the scene. Everything about this moment from the deconstruction of Dawson’s Creek to that haircut and costume is perfect.

 

Season 5 of Girls has been a triumph from Marnie’s wedding to Marnie’s one night adventure all the way to the two-part finale which got me misty eyed on several occasions. One surprise this season was how much they leaned into the Jessa/Adam pairing much to my delight and here Adam Driver definitely has his fighting face at the ready.

The beginning of the end

A post shared by @ jennikonner on

 

Where one thing ends, another begins and while this week marked the end of season 5 for us as the audience, the Girls team started production on season 6 with their first table read.

 

Game of Thrones returns this week and it is a testament to the HBO promo department that even after last year’s mostly disappointing season I am so hyped for Sunday. Michiel Huisman posting this very vacation looking snap also helps.

TONIGHT ON NBC @latenightseth

A post shared by Maisie Williams (@maisie_williams) on

 

Sticking with the GoT theme and Maisie Williams’ collar and lipstick game is strong.

Just a normal family #janethevirgin

A post shared by Yael Grobglas (@yaelgrobglas) on

 

From the adorable on the Jane the Virgin set.

 

To the very surreal and slightly creepy (depending on how you feel about clowns).

 

While we’re on the subject of creepy here are some of the alternate masks for new clone M.K. on Orphan Black and the new season kicked off on a high. I also wrote an essay about Orphan BlackThe Americans and identity; I would love you to read it.

 

There has been a lot of Coachella on Instagram this week and Amandla Stenberg is avoiding all the fashion cliches of this festival looking cool as fuck in this very 90s look. Not a choker or flower crown in sight. And this could easily be a new print ad for Calvin Klein; it is that good.

 

Aya Cash and Kether Donohue’s version of Coachella is much more my speed.

 

Looking like the back of a gown on Say Yes to the Dress with Aaron Tveit on a photo shoot.

 

Alison Wright got to wear a wig on TV this week; nope Martha hasn’t gone undercover and instead this is for the HBO movie Confirmation. Here is Wright with co-star Wendell Pierce.

 

Another costume stunner from Salvador Perez on The Mindy Project.

 

This is all very exciting and I am so ready for season 2 of UnREAL.

 

Busy Philipps giving me so many Freaks and Geeks related feelings. The instant I see that blue coat it makes me so very happy. The caption here is also excellent.

 

While I’m dealing with feelings, here seems like a good place to end this week.
