Abbi and Ilana cure street harassment
Well, not really, but they did give us the perfect response! This week’s all-St. Mark’s Place Broad City season finale kicked off with a strange dude telling our heroines to smile, and our heroines obliging… sort of. Start the countdown to next season now.
Laverne Cox comes to Mindy
Stephen Colbert is a tough act to follow; leave it to Laverne Cox to not only follow, but steal the show. As Sheena, Tamra’s cousin, Cox imparts some essential wisdom to Mindy, namely that confidence comes from… within? “Within? Who the hell told you that? Confidence comes from amazing outfits and perfect makeup.” Yeah, basically.
The Dean goes deep
Into virtual reality, when he becomes obsessed with a $5,000 system that transforms meaningless bureaucratic tasks into an epic quests (or as the creator calls it, “building worlds within worlds”). This enables some spectacular physical comedy from Oscar-winning screenwriter Jim Rash, including deleting a serial number by drowning a final in a ’90s graphics-rendered fountain.
Lena Dunham drops by Scandal
Her character’s name is “Kinky Sue,” and Huck slits her throat. That’s basically all you need to know, but for the curious: Sue has had kinky sex (hence the name) with a lot of very important men and is about to publish a tell-all book about it. Olivia eventually persuades her not to go ahead with it and even sets up a potential job with the Washington Post, but Huck doesn’t trust her. Also, she has a godawful wig. RIP, Lena Dunham!
