Jill Flint is one of my favorite actresses and most people have no clue who she is…except for the random old people like my mother who love Royal Pains and could probably identify her on sight but still not know her name. Mark my words, Jill Flint is going to be a star one day*. If you aren’t too familiar with her work, go check out her IDMB. Do some googling, YouTube-ing even. If you watch a show that’s shot in New York, there’s a very good chance that Jill Flint has appeared at one point. As we creep closer to pilot season, I can only hope that this is the year that someone finally casts her as the lead of her own show. Until then, I’m cool with her sticking around on The Good Wife.
*Star of her own TV show. I make no predictions about the success or failure of her movie career. Her turn as a receptionist in The Amazing Spider-Man probably didn’t do much to further that aspect of her career.
First, let me get this out of the way: not enough of you are watching Nashville. Let’s get all Haley Joel Osment up in this and Pay It Forward. Seriously, tell three friends to watch and then they’ll each tell three friends…I’m sure you’ve all seen that movie and know how this works.
I’m really here to talk about how amazing Lennon & Maisy are. They’re the cute kids pictured to the left that play Connie Britton’s daughters. Yes, they’re good on the show and their talent show in this week’s episode was fantastic, but the best part about them is their YouTube channel. I encourage all of you to stop whatever you’re doing and go some of their covers. You can find my favorites here and here.
If you didn’t ugly cry or shed tears during Ben’s proposal this week, then you might be dead inside and/or a sociopath. I’m getting emotional just looking at that picture of the proposal. Parks & Rec has been spectacular this season, but nothing was better than this scene. Perfect balance of sweetness, comedy, and heart. When Leslie told Ben she needed a moment to remember everything about how perfect her life is at that moment, I DIED.
Happy Endings is AH-MAH-ZING. The premiere was great, but that’s not why I’m writing this. I’m here to direct you all to this link to the UCB show that a bunch of the cast members participated in last week. It’s only an hour long and it’ll be the most you’ve laughed in a long time. Guaranteed.
To the best of my knowledge, there is not yet a tumblr page dedicated solely to posting .gifs of all of the side-eye expressions of disapproval that Michonne gave the Governor in this week’s episode of The Walking Dead. YOU HAVE FAILED ME, INTERNET. You. Have. Failed.
(But seriously, how messed up was that final scene with the Governor and all of those zombie heads?! Nightmares forever.)
