Spotlight/Shoutout: Bridgit Mendler


Hello Wednesday,

I love the Disney Channel, and last Friday I caught the premiere of the show "Good Luck Charlie."

And the magic s/s of awesome sauce goes to the lead actress Bridgit Mendler.

She stars as the somewhat socially awkward teen, who is making a video diary for her baby sister, so she can learn from their mistakes in the future.

The show is not a super blend of strong comic elements, but it shows potential for a strong family show. It's going to be something that the sentimental comedy genre needs.

Bridgit has worked all over the place on the Disney channel, starring on "Wizards of Waverly Place," and "Jonas."

Also, she appeared in the KCA winning film "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel."

"Good Luck Charlie" airs at Sunday nights at 8:30 on Disney.

QATFYG: Are you a fan of sentimental comedies?

  1. So... I decided to watch "Good Luck Charlie." It was enjoyable. It did seem quite different from the D-channel's normal shows. Generally, the shows on that channel are completely child centered, but here there was mixing with the parents. The show gave me the feeling that it was a bit like Lizzy McGuire, if Lizzy McGuire were a live action comedy and slightly lower quality. I might continue watching the show.

    The only real down side I saw to the show was the sets were really fake. It was hard to watch, because they did not in the least bit seem real, and they were obviously trying to imitate real sets.

  2. Anon,
    i was not paying close enough attention to the sets on GLC, but the Disney world is notorious for having sets that are underfunded and they are obviously staged and fake, which damages the illusion.

    I guess one of the best is Sonny with a Chance, because the show is set on TV sets. But again, I have not payed the best attention.

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th
