Recently I was trying to make sure that I had my DVR all set up to catch the increasing number of seasonal summer shows that are out. If you want to watch shows on more than one station and not read a bunch of reviews it can be a bit hard to keep up. So I cherry picked some stuff that you might enjoy. I recommend checking out for info on all current series that you might want to watch. In this day and age you don’t have to have every channel to watch a show. Check out the official sites or, ahem, other methods at your discretion. This is a little long winded. Of course you can just look through the pictures and watch the shows with the prettiest people (which is what we often do anyway).

*Clicking the series title will take you to the show’s official site. Series that are already in progress will not have a date next to them. If the current season hasn’t begun yet you will see a start date next to the title.


Leverage-Sundays 9PM ET TNT (6/26)

Leverage is about a really fun gang of criminals who each have different talents that they utilize to solve cases in a Robin Hood sort of way, plus occasionally they get some dough too. I originally started watching because I’m a big fan of Timothy Hutton and Christian Kane. However the other actors are all terrific as well. The cast is passionate about the show and often participates in web chats and things of that nature. The show costars Gina Bellman, Beth Riesgraf and Aldis Hodge. Although there are plots that continue during the series you can watch one episode here and there and find it enjoyable without being completely confused or anything. Plus Christian Kane fighting people! Oh and lots of disguises!

True Blood-Sundays 9PM ET HBO (6/26)

True Blood is entering it’s 4th season. It’s about vampires, werewolves, sex, booze, blood, religion, love and obsession. I’m guessing that you are already watching though. The series is based on the Sookie Stackhouse or Southern Vampire Mysteries by author Charlaine Harris. The series was created by Alan Ball (Six Feet Under). The talented cast includes Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley and Kristin Bauer.

Drop Dead Diva-Sundays 9PM ET Lifetime

If you’re not a woman or a gay man then Drop Dead Diva is probably not for you. The series stars Brooke Elliott as Jane Bingum (who is great), April Bowlby, Margaret Cho, Kate Levering, Jackson Hurst, Ben Feldman and Josh Stamberg. When the series first started I almost unwillingly watched the premiere episode, was disgusted and decided that I would never watch it again. I assumed that it was feeding off of that whole let’s put a “plus size” woman on a series and debase her. However I caught a couple of episodes of the second season here and there later and then caught up with both seasons while ill a few months ago. The initial set up is about a thin wannabe model who swaps bodies with a lawyer when they are both in accidents. Okay, you know I’m a sucker for body switcher stuff. The thing is that once you get past all of the ridiculous “fat stuff” the show is usually pretty fun and a little insightful. There are also dream sequences/hallucinations that put me in mind of Ally McBeal. That and the cases mirror the characters lives. I really love the dynamic between the lead best friends of Jane and Stacy. And for those who are watching, ah, big Grayson stuff is happening yall! (I could do without Paula Abdul but nothing’s perfect.)

Falling Skies-Sundays 9PM ET TNT

Falling Skies is the new apocalyptic alien series from Steven Spielberg . I watched the first part of the first episode so far (give me a break, it’s 2 hours and populated by tweens). I like the idea of the series, that humans are left without technology after/during an alien invasion and have to forage for themselves. However it’s slow moving, some of the characters are idiots and it smacks of ridiculous over the top every demographic is represented casting which feels forced and a little racist. I have a feeling that if you like The Walking Dead that this is right up your alley. I’m going to try to hang in there because I have a thing for Noah Wyle post ER and there are no new Librarian movies on the horizon.

Breaking Bad-Sundays 10PM ET AMC (7/17)

Breaking Bad is a fantastic show about a chemistry teacher who becomes desperate for money after being diagnosed with cancer. He turns to meth as a way to pay cash. Chemistry, you see? The 4th season starts soon. You may be worried that it could run out of steam quickly but it’s exactly the opposite. Once he’s in that lifestyle he’s forced to examine/change who he is to survive. The series stars Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsey Brandt and RJ Mitte.

Curb Your Enthusiasm-Sundays 10PM ET HBO (7/10)

I have to admit that I haven’t watched an entire episode of this show yet and it’s been on for years. I don’t know why, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I guess that the series is a black comedy starring Seinfeld creator Larry David as a fictionalized version of himself. I’m a big fan of the series Seinfeld and I thought that David was great in Whatever Works so I need to get around to checking this series out. Cheryl Hines and Jeff Garlin costar.

Weeds-Mondays 10PM ET Showtime (6/27)

You can read my previous thoughts on the amazing Weeds here. This season sounds interesting and very different, set in NYC and post jail time. Last season was fantastic and you must watch it as well.

The Big C-Mondays 10:30PM ET Showtime (6/27)

The highly talented Laura Linney stars as a neurotic, suburban teacher who finds out that she has cancer and then struggles with whether or not to tell others and how to actually start living her life in a way that brings her joy. The show costars Oliver Platt (who I love), John Benjamin Hickey, Reid Scott (My Boys), Gabourey Sidibe and Gabriel Basso. You can watch the pilot episode below. I feel that it takes 2 to 3 episodes to really get a feel for the show though. You can participate in The Big C’s C Yourself application on Facebook in which Showtime will donate $5 to the American Cancer Society for every user who posts a photo of themselves with their hand in the shape of a C. This ends on July 25, 2011.

You can watch the first episode of the first season on Showtime’s official site


The Nine Lives of Chloe King-Tuesdays 9PM ET ABC Family

I normally wouldn’t go out of my way to watch a teenage show but the commercials for this series were captivating. It turns out that the series is too. It puts me in mind of a more upbeat Dark Angel. On her 16th birthday Chloe King decides to be more adventurous and fortright. During the next few days she starts getting ancient cat powers. There are probably already 50 reviews about how this is a metaphor for teenagers and puberty or teenagers and alienation or whatever. Who cares? This seems like it has the potentional to be a really great show. The series stars Skyler Samuels as Chloe King, Amy Pietz, Grey Damon, Grace Phipps, Benjamin Stone, Alyssa Diaz and Ki Hong Lee.

Covert Affairs-Tuesdays 10PM ET USA

Covert Affairs stars Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly), Christopher Gorham (Jake 2.0, Out of Practice, Ugly Betty), Peter Gallagher, Karit Matchett, Anne Dudek (White Chicks) and Sendhil Ramamurthy in a series about undercover CIA agents. I’m hoping for the sexy, blind but capable Auggie (Christopher Gorham) to get more missions this season.

Melissa & Joey-Wednesdays 8PM ET ABC Family (6/29)


I watch Melissa & Joey because I am a sucker for my own nostalgia. I grew up on Sabrina the Teenage Witch (Melissa Joan Hart) and Clarissa Explains It All and to a lesser extent Blossom (Joey Lawrence, sorry you’re not getting a Joseph out of me). Hart often tweets about the series. I think that she really loves making it because she gets to play her age (to an extent, this is an ABC channel) instead of a teen. She has also said something to the effect that it has Two & A Half Men style humor. While there are some adult jokes here and there it’s way more tame. Because this is a fantasy land MJH is a councilwoman with a partying past (so sometimes she gets to wear great dresses) and Joey is a former commodities trader who becomes her nanny (for teenagers). It’s all very zany, you see. I would recommend not overthinking this and just giggling along.

Watch part 1 of season 1 on or Hulu

State of Georgia-Wednesdays 8:30PM ET ABC Family (6/29)

The writer/producer for this show is Jennifer Weiner (In Her Shoes, Good In Bed) which is a good reason to give a go. It stars Raven-Symone and Majandra Delfino (Roswell, who never ages). Apparently Raven plays an aspiring actress. I like both actresses but find Symone overbearing at times. I’ll try anything once.

Franklin & Bash-Wednesdays 9PM ET TNT

I freaking love Franklin & Bash. If you follow me on twitter then you know that I shall tweet about F&B and Mark-Paul Gosselaar when the mood strikes me. Franklin & Bash is about dudeish Mutt & Jeff lawyers (Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyers, double yum) who will solve cases despite their goofball antics. Also lots of top and bottomless Mark-Paul scenes (be still my heart, pass the vapors!). Malcolm McDowell costars as their eccentric boss. He seems to be having so much fun in the role and when you see him behind his desk helping hot women half his age you can’t help but recall his short lived and immensely fun role in Fantasy Island. Reed Diamond (i.e. that crazy guy from Dollhouse) costars as their put upon coworker who is getting shown up despite his work ethic. Garcelle Beauvais, Kumail Nanjiani and Alexandra Holden (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Sugar & Spice, Friends) costar.

Royal Pains-Wednesdays 9PM ET USA (6/29)

Royal Pains is about a doctor (Mark Feuerstein-In Her Shoes, Conrad Bloom) who loses his license but his enterprising brother (Paulo Costanzo-Road Trip, Joey) and he go into business as a concierge doctor (he makes housecalls for rich people) in the Hamptons, which I’m inclined to believe is a real thing. Hayden Christensen has claimed and sued in the past alleging that the series is based on he and his brother’s idea for a show called Housecall with this plot that USA passed on. This sounds feasible but he lost the case. Also you can’t really feel bad for the guy, he should have socked some Star Wars money away. Reshma Shetty and Jill Flint costar. Campbell Scott and Henry Winkler have reoccurring roles. The show is good for clean cut eye candy and opportunities to yell at the screen saying “It was that disease all along?!”.

Watch select episodes of Royal Pains on or on

Project Runway-Wednesdays 9PM ET Lifetime (7/27)

Project Runway is, of course, a reality show about people striving to become fashion designers. Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors are the judges. Often there are guest judges. Being a reality show the contestants are pitted against each other and very catty. Gunn can criticize with just an eyebrow raise and Klum tries to give advice that we often can’t understand through her accent. If you plan to watch this then I recommend catching the new season from the beginning.

Wipeout-Thursdays 8PM ET ABC (Tuesday 6/21)

It should probably embarrass me that I occasionally check out Wipeout when there is nothing else on. It’s just a game show about people doing a ridiculous obstacle course to win money. It’s hosted by John Henson (Talk Soup). It’s only like 1/4 as good as Ninja Warrior but my service provider doesn’t give us G4 anymore so sayonara. Warning: Watching this show may make you want to compete.

Burn Notice-Thursdays 9PM ET USA (6/23)
“Is it a reality show about sunglasses?”-SNL

It's actually about yogurt and beer.

and Hawaiian shirts.

Burn Notice is sunny (shot in Miami), breezy episodic television starring Jeffrey Donovan (Blair Witch 2), Bruce Campbell, Gabrielle Anwar and Sharon Gless (Queer As Folk). The show revolves around ex-spies (they were “burned”, i.e. fired) who use their skills to fix shady situations. You can fall into any episode of Burn Notice and enjoy it. I will be forever appreciative of a show that showcases Bruce Campbell like this. In fact during their last hiatus they even gave his character his own made for TV movie, check out the official site for the best posters of him in character. During this, the show’s 5th season, Fiona is supposed to be getting a new love interest.

Suits-Thursdays 10PM ET USA (6/23)

This is probably supposed to be some sort of devil metaphor.

Suits is a show about hot lawyers (one with a degree, one without but who is a genius). It stars Gabriel Macht (who I loved in The Spirit), Patrick J. Adams, Meghan Markle, Rick Hoffman and as browncoats will be happy to hear, Gina Torres. As writer from Rolling Stone said “USA Network continues its stranglehold on breezy Eighties-style dramas about swaggering meatballs in designer threads.” He said this as a dis but that’s why I enjoy shows like this. While someone like Jackie Collins finds escapism in Shameless people like me get a kick out of rich, polished, handsome men because that’s not our world.

Wilfred-Thursdays 10PM ET FX (6/23)

This is a comedy about a guy (played by Elijah Wood) who tries to commit suicide and then (hallucinating/dead?) becomes friends with a guy in a dog suit. Looks interesting.

Louie-Thursdays 10:30PM ET FX (6/23)

I admit that I was basically clueless about Louie C.K. until I read an interview with him in a men’s magazine recently (the name/issue escapes me, I read a lot). The article showed how funny, smart and insightful this guy is. He puts me in mind of fellow comedians, Doug Stanhope and David Cross. I watched his Netflix special as well and 2 episodes of this series and I am sold. I will definitely be checking this out. This is his second show. Info on the first one is here. The show is about a fictionalized version of himself. It can be uncomfortable to watch but very funny.

Childrens Hospital-Thursdays 12AM ET Cartoon Network

If you read this blog semi-regularly then you’ve probably already read about my love of Children’s Hospital and ahem, Ken Marino. Children’s Hospital is a hysterically funny satire of medical dramas. The first few times you watch you may be thrown by the “on a previous episode of Children’s Hospital” in which they recap things that often have never happened before during the series. It’s a fun show with a mix of thinking and obvious sight gag humor. The show has a huge, ever changing cast with fantastic guest stars. The regular cast also includes Rob Corddry, Rob Huebel, Megan Mullally, Erin Hayes, Lake Bell and Malin Akerman.

Haven-Fridays 10PM ET SyFy (7/15)

Plot: “A shrewd FBI agent with a lost past who arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine, to solve the murder of a local ex-con only to discover that the curious enclave is a longtime refuge for people with supernatural powers that holds a lot of secrets, including to her own past.” from (, I have not watched all of Haven but it’s basically a monster of the week type of show. I watch for the sex on a stick Eric Balfour (Skyline, Six Feet Under). The show costars Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant and Nicholas Campbell.

“When they mix the sexuality and the violence, I like it” – Forgetting Sarah Marshall

If you were a character in an erotic thriller then how would you know? Are you worried that one of the people that you are sexing up on the regular is getting ready to murder you? Bingo!

Special Treatment (2010)

Well the cover of this movie is quite misleading/odd once you realize that the main character is a middle aged prostitute. However is a quite interesting movie. Plus both the lead actress and actor are quite talented. The yang to her yin is a psychiatrist with OCD and a crumbling marriage. If you enjoy a peek into a hooker’s life, ala a darker Secret Diary of a Call Girl, give this a watch. This French drama includes optional English subtitles.

Diary of a Nymphomaniac (2008)

This disturbing coming of age tale focuses on a lusty French woman who decides to become a prostitute. She also has an absorbing yet destructive relationship with an older man. This flick is in Spanish with optional English subtitles.

8MM (1999)

“If you dance with the devil, the devil don’t change. The devil changes you.”

Since 8MM involves a snuff film you might think that this is a sick addition. Seriously though, look at Joaquin Phoenix in this movie, so hot. He helps Nic Cage with his search. Of course they do have to associate with all different types of shady people, including people in the porn world, so I think that warrants its inclusion. I also recommend the direct to DVD sequel 8MM2. While it has nothing to do with this movie it has sex, deceit and hottie Johnathon Schaech.
Rated R for strong perverse sexuality and violence, and for strong language.

The Advocate (aka The Hour of the Pig) (1993)

This movie doesn’t sound/look that sexy to me but those who have reviewed it say that it is so I think that I’ll have to check it out. It stars a younger Colin Firth who’s rockin’ some shaggy ass hair. He’s a lawyer in a medieval court who apparently can’t keep his britches on. You can watch the trailer here on
Rated R for elements of strong sexuality.

Basic Instinct (1992)

I still have no idea how it came to be that in the early ’90s every woman was supposed to be attracted to/obsessed with Michael Douglas but some how it just worked. This is, of course, the very famous movie starring Sharon Stone as an erotic novelist who is also the suspect in a murder case. Douglas is a detective who crosses the line with her. Yes, this is the infamous Sharon Stone snatch flashing movie. Is it the best thing ever? No, but as a fan of both actors I recommend checking it out at least once.
Rated R for Strong violence and sensuality, and for drug use and language.

Bad Influence (1990)

“You know, you make a funny face when you come.”

Bad Influence is fun because we usually see James Spader as a conceited asshole in movies but in the beginning of this movie he’s very meek. He becomes friends with Rob Lowe, who is basically all id, and teaches him how to be a player, while also toying with his life.
Rated R-may include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

Stormy Monday (1988)

I haven’t seen this yet but it just went into my queue. This is Mike Figgis’ first film. It’s about seedy politicians and a nightclub. The movie stars Melanie Griffith, Sean Bean, Sting and Tommy Lee Jones. I recommend this post by a woman who appeared in the film.
Rated R for adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually oriented nudity and drug abuse.

Chloe (2009)

“Am I your secretary or am I your daughter? Maybe I’m your seventh grade math teacher you always hated. All I know is that if I do it just right, I can become your living, breathing, unflinching dream, and then I can actually disappear”

A woman has a chance meeting with a high class escort which spurs her to hire the escort to test her husband’s fidelity. At the same time she herself is drawn to this sexy, young woman. This movie was even better than I expected. It stars Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried and Liam Neeson.
Rated R for strong sexual content including graphic dialogue, nudity and language.

Basic Instinct 2 (2006)

“You know how some guys are into blondes and some guys are into killers?”

Plot: Novelist Catherine Tramell is once again in trouble with the law, and Scotland Yard appoints psychiatrist Dr. Michael Glass to evaluate her. Though, like Detective Nick Curran before him, Glass is entranced by Tramell and lured into a seductive game.-from I’m not actually a big fan of the Basic Instinct movies but there are some hot scenes in this. It stars Sharon Stone, David Morrissey and David Thewlis.
Rated R for strong sexuality, nudity, violence, language and some drug content.

Cruel Intentions 3 (2004)

“The only problem with fucking with someone as twisted as you is that you’re fucking with someone as twisted as you.”

I wasn’t sure whether I should include this movie because it’s tamer than the other films but I am a big fan of the series so, why not? Cruel Intentions 3 has completely different characters from the first film and the TV pilot (that was later released direct to DVD as a psuedo prequel). Of course they are supposed to be related to the other characters or something but who cares? What you need to know is that Kerr Smith (Dawson’s Creek) is so hot in this. The “plot” is about bored, rich college kids who toy with each other.
Rated R for strong sexual content and language.

Femme Fatale (2002)

not creepy at all

totally integral to the plot…like all faux lesbian scenes



“I’m a bad girl Nicolas. Real bad. Rotten to the heart. “

“C’mon, Nicolas. You don’t have to lick my ass. Just fuck me!”

Plot: A woman tries to straighten out her life, even as her past as a con-woman comes back to haunt her.-from I’ve been a big fan of this movie since it came out. It stars Rebecca Romijn, Antonio Banderas and Peter Coyote.
Rated R for strong sexuality, violence and language.

Murder By Numbers (2002)

“Please, that chick spreads like peanut butter.”

Plot: Two gifted high school students execute a perfect murder and then become engaged in an intellectual contest with a seasoned homicide detective.-from This film was released years ago when Sandy Bullock was trying to be taken seriously as an actress. Her dramatic films didn’t cause droves to turn out to the box office so she went back to romantic comedies aside from that time that she won an oscar by showing her range (blonde hair and an accent). I wouldn’t call it a must see but it’s decent. The film costars Ben Chaplin, Ryan Gosling and Michael Pitt (the latter 2 are always sorta sexy in a creepy way).
Rated R for violence, language, a sex scene and brief drug use.

American Psycho 2(2002)

(crap, now there’s a pic of William Shatner on my blog!)

You mean you’ve never heard of this direct to DVD movie starring Mila Kunis as a murderous college student? Get on that! It costars the aloofly hot Robin Dunne (also seen in Cruel Intentions 2, The Skulls 2 and Species 3, he’s the top reason to rent direct to DVD sequels!)
Rated R for violence and language.

Original Sin (2001)

Original Sin stars Angelina Jolie back when she was still smokin’ hot plus Antonio Banderas and Thomas Jane (yum). It’s about a mail order bride who isn’t what she seems.
Rated R for strong sexual content and some violence.

Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

“So, because I’m a beautiful woman, the only reason any man wants to talk to me is because he wants to fuck me? Is that what you’re saying? “

This is, of course, Stanley Kubrick’s last film. It took years to make this movie and Kubrick was not known for being easy to work with. However if Kubrick wanted to cast you and your wife as the leads in his film even though it might contribute to the end of your marriage you’d probably still say yes, cuz it’s Kubrick. The basic plot is about Tom Cruise’s doctor character exploring different types of hidden sexual environments after his wife (Nicole Kidman) upsets him. This is my second favorite Kubrick film (A Clockwork Orange is tops). I was anticipating its release back in the day and it killed me that I had to wait for the DVD release because I was 16 (our movie theater had just started enforcing ratings). The film costars the late Sydney Pollack, Thomas Gibson, Leelee Sobieski, Vinessa Shaw and Alan Cumming. If you enjoy the film I recommend reading Like Being in Another World’: Vinessa Shaw on the 10th Anniversary of Eyes Wide Shut.
Rated R for strong sexual content, nudity, language and some drug-related material. (on Netflix, you can also buy or rent the NC-17 version).

Devil in the Flesh (1998)
Devil in the Flesh 2 (2000)

“No means no. Don’t you guys get that? What is it, you stop understanding English when you get a hard-on?”

The awesome Rose McGowan stars as a poor, unpopular, unhinged teen who falls for her teacher after she gives herself a skanked out 5 finger discount makeover. So good. The sequel, starring Jodi Lyn O’Keefe isn’t as good but is worth checking out if you get a kick of the first one.
The original is Rated R for strong violence and sexuality, and for some language.
The sequel is Rated R-may include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

Never Talk To Strangers (1995)

“This is how I like my men, wet and naked”

Plot: Sarah Taylor, a police psychologist, meets a mysterious and seductive young man, Tony Ramirez, and falls in love with him.-from It stars Antonio Banderas, Rebecca De Mornay, Dennis Miller and Harry Dean Stanton. Teen and pre-teen girls of the ’90s grew up with huges crushes on Banderas, so there you go.
Rated R for violence, language and some strong graphic sexuality.

Disclosure (1994)

“You stick your dick in my mouth and now you get an attack of morality?”

I am a huge fan of Disclosure. I never really understood why all of the women in 1990’s films were obsessed with Michael Douglas, because even though he’s cool he’s not really a looker. This movie rocks because Demi Moore was so headstrong in the ’90s. Since it’s 1994 one of the plots of the film involves some really ridiculous computer software but the main plot is “As a guy can you really be sexually harrassed by a hot woman?”. Well you can but who is going to believe you. The film costars Donald Sutherland, Roma Maffia, Dylan Baker and Dennis Miller.
Rated R for a very strong sex scene, sexual dialogue and other strong language.

The Crush (1993)

“Nick, ever do a virgin?”

Cary Elwes is a reporter who moves into a rich family’s guest house and becomes the objection of obsession by Alicia Silverstone. He tries to rebuff her but that doesn’t always work out. The film costars Amber Benson and Kurtwood Smith (Red on That 70’s Show). If you are also a big fan of the film I recommend reading The Crush Mansion at and Brockton Point Lighthouse from The Crush at
Rated R for language and terror violence.

Fatal Instinct (1993)

Fatal Instinct is a spoof of the erotic thriller genre. Plot: A cop/attorney is seduced by a woman while his wife is having an affair with a mechanic. (from This movie stars Armand Assante, Christopher McDonald, James Remar, Tony Randall and John Witherspoon in addition to 2 fantastic actresses, Sherilyn Fenn and Sean Young.

Rated PG-13 for racy humor.

Poison Ivy (1992)
Poison Ivy 3: The New Seduction (1997)

carrying on a proud tradition of seducing old guys

Back in the early 1990’s when Drew Barrymore was trying to not be seen as a little kid anymore (but before she wanted to be the girl next door) we got great cheesy movies like Poison Ivy and Doppelganger. She plays a teen temptress who gets Sara Gilbert and her dad (Tom Skerritt) to become enamored with her. Later Alyssa Milano decided to go the same route with Poison Ivy 2: Lily (my favorite in the series). After that a Jaime Pressly (My Name Is Earl) also got to take a swing at it. She’s mainly really good at getting people drunk in this movie. It costars Greg Vaughan (Charmed). There is a 4th film that was released in 2009 but I haven’t seen it.
Poison Ivy is rated R for sensuality and language.
Poison Ivy: The New Seduction is rated R for strong sexuality, and for some language and drug content.

Final Analysis (1992)

“Do you come out here a lot?” “No, just in moments of existential anxiety and when I want to impress a date.”

Now I definitely understand an obsession with Richard Gere. He is a psychiatrist who gets involved with his patient (Kim Basinger). Uma Thurman costars.
Rated R-may include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

Wild at Heart (1990)

Plot: Young lovers Sailor and Lula run from the variety of weirdos that Lula’s mom has hired to kill Sailor.-from Nic Cage, Laura Dern, Willem Dafoe, Crispin Glover, Diane Ladd, Isabella Rossellini, Harry Dean Stanton and Sherilyn Fenn star in this David Lynch film.
Rated R

Breathless (1983)

Plot: Jesse has to get out of Las Vegas quickly, and steals a car to drive to L.A. On the way he shoots a police man. When he makes it to L.A. he stays with Monica, a girl he has only known for a few days. As the film progresses, the police get closer to him, and the crimes escalate.-from It stars the very yummy Richard Gere.
Rated R-may include adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements.

Body Heat (1981)

“Maybe you shouldn’t dress like that” “This is a blouse and skirt, I don’t know what you mean”



“…besides, maybe she’ll fuck me to death”

Plot-In the midst of a searing Florida heat wave, a woman convinces her lover, a small-town lawyer, to murder her rich husband.-from I’ve always been undecided as to whether or not William Hurt was attractive when he was younger. After watching this I really don’t think that he is. He does do a great job of getting seduced by the always impressive Kathleen Turner. If you enjoy the film I recommend reading Turner’s autobiography because she goes into detail about the making of many of her films including this one. A young, geeked out Ted Danson costars.
Rated R for adult content, graphic language, nudity, and violence.

American Gigolo (1980)

“How many languages do you speak?” “5 or 6” “Plus the, uh, international language?” “That’s right”

Yes, the 3rd Richard Gere flick in this post! A super young, super hot Gere plays a high class hooker who falls for Lauren Hutton while getting caught up in some shady goings on. Hector Elizondo costars.
Rated R for adult content, adult language and mild violence.

Caligula (1979)

Malcolm McDowell is Caligula. Helen Mirren and Peter O’Toole costar. The film was produced by Penthouse!
Rated R for pervasive depiction of sex and violence. (the streaming version, the real version is unrated and dirtier).

Here’s the deal. I wanted to do one of these like I normally do but now I have arthritis in my hands too & it’s not conducive to typing. It also makes it difficult to style thick, curly, unruly hair, so enjoy these mini movie previews of me in a Lady Gaga wig. Also, since this is my first time doing this I was in pain/in a hurry/confused & deleted some reviews so those will say thumbs up or thumbs down (even though it hurts to use my thumbs). At any rate, with this new, oh so fun problem I can’t even pretend to be normal anymore, so enjoy the performance art that is my life.
