TV Ate My Soundtrack: The “Look What You Made Me Do” Edition

25 Aug

Taylor Swift has a new song out — news I’m sure you are aware of — and while I was far, far from blown away, I have had the line “Look what you made me do” playing on a loop in my head since. And I’ve only listened to it once. Even a mediocre song can create an earworm.While this is no “All Too Well” or “Out of the Woods” it will make for a good TV soundtrack moment and my first thought after pushing aside those underwhelmed feelings was “What TV show will use this song?” Well, the TGIT ABC line-up was quick out the gate proving this song might not be a banger, but it works well alongside Shonda dramas. The Right Said Fred beat has a lot to do with that.

TV show playlists pretty much make up a good 75% of my Spotify playlists — current and old shows — and so here are the shows/scenes both past and present that I think this new Taylor track could accompany.

Sidenote — I just remembered Taylor has both been referenced in New Girl and has appeared on New Girl as an entirely different character. Here is the fantasy soundtrack casting of this song:

Felicity – Meghan finally reveals the contents of her box. She is not very happy about doing so, but we do get another Twilight Zone style episode so it is a win/win.

Game of Thrones – Taylor guest stars as Arya Stark, or rather a version of Arya as part of the acting troupe we met last season. And after hearing Arya recite her list of names actress Arya turned it into this song. It does not go over well with viewers.

Girls – Marnie sings a cover version of this song to absolve her from any wrong doing. It is simultaneously the best thing I have ever heard and the most cringe worthy moment. Classic Marnie.

Gossip Girl – pre Dan is Gossip Girl reveal, Dan feels conflicted about a Serena blast he sent to Gossip Girl after seeing her with a mystery new guy. Later on, when it is revealed that Dan is Gossip Girl, this is one scene of many that makes no sense

How to Get Away with Murder – we find out how not to get away with murder and I can still only name two characters by name (other than Annalise).

Mad Men – occasionally Mad Men would delve into contemporary music for the closing credits and I like to think this would follow on from when Pete tried to get his revenge on Don by revealing his real identity (and it failed).

New Girl – a montage of Jess attempting to appear a little edgy to her students because she wants them to think she is cool. It does not work and she instantly reverts back to all things twee. Sounds like a plan someone else should stick to.

Revenge – Emily Thorne red sharpie of doom montage. A tad on the nose, but sometimes it is best to keep it simple.

Riverdale – After a fight with Jughead, Betty sticks on red lipstick, brunette wig and bralette and goes to some dark, dark places at a nightclub while Veronica looks concerned. Yes, this is sort of a repeat of last season. But with added Tay.

Scandal – one of the main characters kills someone, but it’s handled. Red wine is consumed and cardigans are coveted.

Wonderfalls – a plastic snake tells Jaye to blow up her relationship with Eric and this song plays as Jay drowns her sorrows with a lot of shots.

You’re the Worst – Sam makes a remix version of “New Phone, Who Dis?” with the line “I’m sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now.” “Why?” “Oh ’cause she’s dead!” It is a surprise hit and now Gretchen has to do a lot more work.

Taylor, look what you made me do.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

Midweek Instagram TV highlights this week include some of our weekly faves with the iZombie and You’re the Worst cast continuing their behind the scenes photo domination. Plus style highs from Yara Shahidi, James Wolk wrapped in blankets and my new costume obsession.

A combination of so many of my favorite things and Gina Rodriguez suits this styling so well. Between this and The Get Down (see more of that below) my seventies clothing obsession is alive and well.

 

More Jane the Virgin set antics and the return of Petra (or could it be her evil twin? – I heart this plot twist so much). Always wine.

While we’re on the subject of wine; one of TV’s biggest wine drinkers has a full glass (of grape juice) on the set of Scandal and it sounds like I need to catch up after reading this Entertainment Weekly season 6 post (I keep quitting and coming back).

 

This sounds like everything I would ever want from a Marnie storyline. She would be so perfect for this.

 

Matthew Rhys and his glorious beard are guest starring on the final season of Girls. Sadly no details are available yet so time to conjure up your best pairing for him. I am not so secretly hoping he will have something to do with Adam. Fun connection time – Matthew Rhys and Adam Driver shared the stage back in 2012 in Look Back in Anger and this also happened to be the play that got the Americans casting director interested in Rhys for Philip Jennings.

Continuing on from yesterday’s Met Gala highlights we’ve got some getting ready and Gala hangout offerings. Plus more from the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner and the Girls ladies get back to work for their final season.

 

Still the dress moment of the evening and it is worth seeing Claire Danes in all her glowing glory once again.

 

And here it is in the early stages.

 

I have so many questions about the bathroom situation considering the size/constricted nature of some of the gowns (going short seems like a wise choice) and as somehow who has talked about how much they love the use of bathrooms particularly in teen shows, I am so here for this.

As with this Lady Gaga in the background facial expression I am also obsessed with what Jemima Kirke is thinking in this moment.

 

This was another favorite look of the night and Danai Gurira is a spectacular force on the red carpet, as Michonne on The Walking Dead and as a writer. There is another reason for Gurira to celebrate this week as her play Eclipsed received six Tony nominations including writing and for best play.

 

One thing I love about Instagram and fashion posts is the detail you get to appreciate that wouldn’t normally come across in red carpet shots. Case in point the parts of SJP’s Hamilton inspired look.

Jessica Jones cast hangouts courtesy of the Netflix screening event last night. Also reminding me that I still have over half a season of Daredevil to watch.

 

If you only follow one stylist on Instagram make it Ilaria Urbinati for lots of dudes in suits treats such as this Scott Speedman delight and plenty of ladies looking amazing (including Krysten Ritter from the event in the previous photo).

 

This is wonderful and bizarre. Thank you, Jessica Chastain.

 

A very special visit from the woman who inspired Olivia Pope.

 

While I’m on the subject of very special visitors; the cast of The Crucible were graced with the presence of the one and only Stevie Nicks.

 

Other significant post-play important hangouts of the week and now I have all the feelings.

27 Apr

What is probably going to end up as the musical event of the year took place over the weekend and this week’s Instagram round-up kicks off with this seminal moment. Plus the usual TV season beginnings, endings and everything in-between as there are a whole lot of shows wrapping up and just getting started.

 

This was a huge weekend for HBO, but rather than dragons it is Beyoncé dominating pop culture conversation after she released her visual tour de force album Lemonade. There is the massive cultural impact as well as the more surface level aspects to pore over like every outfit Beyoncé wears throughout.

Plus plenty of celebrity cameos including TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite Amandla Stenberg and she shared this very cool looking shot.

Zendaya also appeared in Lemonade and instead of a moment from the shoot, here she is enjoying the broadcast of this incredible visual and musical feat.

 

Lots of shows wrapping up this week with Scandal being one of them and the sight of Angela Bassett is enough to get me to check back in for the finale (although it looks like she might have been there in a non-acting capacity).

There was a lot of wine on The Good Wife this week even by Alicia’s standards and here is fantastic shot of a laughing Julianna Margulies with a glass of red (or most likely grape juice).

 

Broad City finished its third season last week and here is a very cute photo of Abbi and Ilana from filming the finale.

 

Those red glasses are very special. I checked back in with The Mindy Project a couple of weeks ago and it will be interesting to see how the rest of this season plays out now they have done that big thing.

Maisie Williams surprised some UCLA students having a Game of Thrones viewing party by joining them for the season 6 premiere. She even brought snacks, but none of them were dragon egg shape.

The UnREAL cast continue to deliver with set treats including this shot of new guy cast member Ioan Gruffudd and Michael Rady in formal attire.

 

A couple of things – I love that Margaret Qualley hangs out with Liv Tyler (who I also think could easily play her sister) and this is a reminder that The Leftovers will soon start shooting its third (and final *sob*) season.

 

Meanwhile, Justin Theroux continues to work on his fabulous hiatus beard.

This episode. Ultimate Valentine’s Day sobs.

 

Tyra might have a few pointers, but I give this picture a 10 with the added bonus of more Lucca Quinn patterned costuming treats.

 

Constance Zimmer’s very on point sweater this weekend gets extra points for the Galentine’s tag (and now I’m sad I forgot to include Rachel and Quinn in this post – next year).

 

There needs to be a word for something that is even more than just #SquadGoals when hangouts like this one take place.

 

NYFW is all over Instagram including many runway shots and this one from The Cut’s Stella Bugbee captures the fluidity and pretty from the Altuzarra show.

Thankfully there’s a lot more laughter and a lot less animosity behind the scenes on Scandal without all the romantic dramaz.

My Name is Jonas” has been stuck in my head all week and there is a very obvious reason for this as social media has been awash with a blizzard by a certain name.

You might already know my feelings about IRL friendships which have developed from pretend ones on screen, but if you don’t then just know that I am so here for all of this. The cast of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants are still super tight including New Year’s Eve hangout tight.

 

Blake Lively is also getting in on the Amber Tamblyn action and this implies that maybe there’s some husband sharing occurring somewhere. Maybe this is a sequel in the works. Lively also gave a shout out to America Ferrera’s new show Superstore and there’s more between these ladies than just the perfect jeans.

More IRL friendships and New Year’s party shenanigans featuring a good level of outfit sparkles, but in this case the real life relationship came before the fictional one (and looks a whole lot happier than the one we see on our screens). Lena Dunham just announced that Girls will end in 2017 after season 6 and I agree that by then it will be time to call it quits. Season 5 returns next month.

@maybeayacash is my favorite actress. I think she's one of the most important actresses of our generation. Her genius performance in last night's episode of #YoureTheWorst was inspiring, raw, authentic, riveting, provocative, and powerful and it hit a chord within viewers that can help people's lives. I would also like everyone to know that during the time of shooting that episode, she had a horrible cold! For her to give the performance she did even if she didn't have a cold would be special, but the fact that she delivered what she did WITH the cold is especially spectacular. It was such a gratifying experience to shoot our scene in the bedroom; to shoot a scene like that with an actress you admire and have a genuine human connection with is special. In general, I'm just grateful and excited to be on a show with subversive female characters that challenge dominant ideologies of how women are supposed to behave and look like. Lindsay and Gretchen represent women that cannot be put in a box and neatly wrapped up in a bow. We are not perfect, we represent the beautiful messes that real human beings are.

A post shared by Kether Donohue (@ketherdonohue) on

 

Last week’s episode of You’re the Worst answered the Gretchen mystery in a way that managed to make me want to curl up and sob while still delivering on the laughs, which is an incredibly hard line to walk. Kether Donohue posted a tribute to Aya Cash’s stunning performance giving further insight into this episode and nails what makes this such a special show. Plus this photo delivers on Cash as my sunglasses queen.

 

And this is just super cute. Plus there are those Ray Bans again – get on my face. Sunday Funday Halloween tonight!

 

Dream aesthetic ahoy from Holly Taylor wearing what looks to be an excellent sweater and living the food dream on the set of The Americans. I’ve said it before, but it is easy to buy that Taylor could be Keri Russell’s daughter from her hair alone.

 

It is also easy to believe that Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett could be mother/son from their excellent matching resting bitch face.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

22 Jul

Plenty of casts from fall shows have returned to set for their new seasons so while we have to wait until September to see the fruits of their labor, it is maybe time to infer things from the behind the scenes sneak peeks. Plus reunions, cute outfits and TV watching faces.

 

Belfast airport is the place to spot Game of Thrones cast members as production of season 6 begins and sadly the wait for viewers is going to be a little longer than fall. Daenerys has been reunited with Missandei by a nice selection of mugs and it is no big surprise seeing Emilia Clarke and Nathalie Emmanuel heading back even if their characters are currently separated. All eyes are on another person who happened to make his way to Belfast.

 

Robbie Amell (who has just be cast in the new X-Files revival along with Lauren Ambrose!) and Victor Garber are back on the set of The Flash, but it’s Grant Gustin’s hoodie over his new Flash suit that I am distracted by. Maybe Barry should rock this look.

This is very exciting and an appropriately mysterious shot from Rhys Darby on the set of The X-Files.

 

Where he also got to hang out with Kumail Nanjiani and I am thrilled Nanjiani is going to be in an episode. If you haven’t listened to his podcast The X-Files Files and you’re currently rewatching before the revival then I definitely recommend you do.

Bad form at this end as I didn’t know Joshua Jackson was on Instagram (in my defense he hasn’t posted that much before this week and I am far too distracted by Diane Kruger’s excellent feed). He’s making me long for a beach trip as a result of showing off the beautiful locations they use on The Affair. There is also a shot of something a bit more intimate that he has to wear on this show.

An accurate representation of my True D watching face. Sadly I don’t have curls as big as Jenny Slate’s.
