Jeers to ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ for being an ab-solute bully. Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by Robby Hayes’s eight-pack while gorging on reality TV’s answer to empty calories.
Jeers to ‘The Defenders’ for not daring to leave us hanging. The finale of Netflix’s eight-episode Marvel mashup could have been epic if they’d let us think Daredevil (Charlie Cox, right) was killed in the building explosion. Sadly, the only thing that died was dramatic effect once a last-minute scene revealed that he was convalescing with some nuns.
Cheers to ‘The Bold Type’ for being a font of fashionable fun. Freeform’s soapy tale set at a Cosmo-like magazine has a Devil Wears Prada-ish vibe and the kind of fresh ensemble (including Aisha Dee, Katie Stevens and Meghann Fahy) that never goes out of style.
Cheers to Shay Mitchell for booking a hot new gig. Having conquered the YA scene, the Pretty Little Liars vet is moving into the adult mystery section with a role in You, Lifetime’s in-production adaptation of Caroline Kepnes’s juicy novel about a bookstore clerk (Penn Badgley) with a killer crush. That is some A-plus casting!
